RE: Traveling with Propane on

Always. Theoretically there is a very slight chance that while filling up your and your RV was sitting next to a gas pump and the refrigerator vent panel was very near that gas pump hose as it was pumping gas and the wind was exactly right to lift the heavier than air gas fumes up and blow those into the refrigerator vent and the refrigerator was currently cooling and the fumes reached the burner, then yes, a fire is possible. Likewise if someone sprayed gasoline into the refrigerator vent while it was on ……….. Diesel fumes are not explosive like gasoline fumes. Diesel is more like charcoal lighter fluid as far as flammability.

RE: Dino juice v Electrons....

A completely pointless video. No one with any towing knowledge expects current EVs to come even close to towing with an ICE engine. Video hints at being anti EV and leans toward being a GM promotional video. I don't know about that? :? There are several people on this very forum that think there will be a Semi out any day that will haul 80 thousand lbs and go 621 mile on some sort of magical pixie dust LI battery. ….. …. And some day they will. But not today or tomorrow or in the near future. Probably not in my lifetime. But the day will come.

RE: I-40 CA to DFW then on to Galveston - suggestions?

From Amarillo I would take US 287 to I-35W, south to I-20, east to I-45, then south toward Houston. Can’t say about the best way to get thru or around Houston. You will miss the heat of southern AZ, NM, and southwest TX. But northern NM and all of TX will still be hot.

RE: Looking for 5 star RV Park

Most are not “north”. But a few are.

RE: Unique situation: What tow vehicle checks all the boxes?

What is your wife's mysterious cargo? Glamping equipment: It's important that the glamping goods travel clean and covered, and some of it requires a space that's taller than a truck bed. How tall? With a cap, it's about as tall as most SUVs with seats folded down. Or there are oversize caps tall enough to stand up in. Agree here. If too tall for a tonneau cover, a cap painted to match the truck (with a bedrug) would be a good option. Again, with the bedrug it is like an oversized trunk or back of an SUV. And a loaded "luxury" pickup goes right along with the "glamping" theme.

RE: Tight turn across narrow culvert?

Without seeing it I would think you could work it into the drive with some careful back and forth. I could back my 34' 5er into my narrow driveway from my also narrow street. Not easy, but doable. And I did not have a culvert to worry about. If you do not feel good about your backing, try to find someone who is better. BUT. Either way, have a spotter and move very slowing. If you get too near the edge, stop and start over. I saw someone drop their 5er off a culvert at a campground we were at several years ago. Not pretty. Had to have a heavy duty wrecker come in, lift the rear of the trailer, and hold it up as both backed out of the situation. Some damage to the bottom of the trailer. If a one time thing, then give it a try. Otherwise do it right and extend the culvert.

RE: Unique situation: What tow vehicle checks all the boxes?

Pickup with a hard solid tonneau cover (not roll or fold) and bedrug. Makes the bed like a huge carpeted trunk.

No. But I have an iPhone if that matters.

RE: Want a new truck?

I wanted to order a new loaded F150 last July. When I inquired to local dealer they said $10k over sticker. I said no thanks. Got an email a week later that said $5k over sticker. I said no thanks. Got an email a few days later that said sticker. Ended up ordering exactly what I wanted for about $2,500 under sticker. Got it 5 months later. Still considerably closer to sticker than I was used to paying. But also got far more for my old truck than it had been valued at 6 months before. So it pretty much evened out. Last summer there were almost no F series of any flavor on the lots. Trucks on dealer order were being bought before they arrived. Most lots now have a few. I would have thought pricing would have softened a little.

RE: 5th wheel front tripod

You didn't want the tripod I tried to give you so after your comment was put it out front and have a FREE sign it was gone the 2nd night. chevman retired from Rving again Back when they were more popular I set mine out front of the trailer with $60 sign on it. Sold in an hour. And still lost half my money. With basic front jacks and rear stabilizers they help a little. Emphasize little. Sold mine when I installed JT Strongarms.

RE: Where have all the members gone on this forum?

Been slowly declining for years. I think older members started with and, for the most part, stayed with this forum. But newer and younger RVers have gone more to FB. And the same questions asked over and over can only be answered in so many ways. Some who have answered a question many times before have likely stopped. And the snarky replies so often seen have not helped.

RE: Dude ranch RV parks?

Google rv dude ranch. Or rv dude ranch "state name" if you want a particular state. Don't know anything about any of them, but there are a lot of them.

RE: That settles that.

"no time in history has that ended well" What do you mean? Literally EVERY time in history it has ended well. Market goes down, market comes back up even higher. So true. Market downturns rarely last much more than a year or so. And new highs typical 2 years or so after that. My money has ridden thru a number of those in the last 40+ years.

RE: Point to ponder, hornets nest stir

Well, his reply was correct. SOME 350/3500 SRWs have payload capacities in excess of 4,000 lbs now with certain configurations.

RE: Do you unhook for the night?

Leave hooked up if reasonably level. Jacks down to take out some of the bounce.

RE: Low tree branches in my development ..Update

First thing to do is contact your township, explain the problem, and ask if they will trim those limbs. Might be surprised. Might not.

Yellowstone NP roads and entrance closures

Anyone heading to YNP any time soon need to check road and entrance closures. As of today all entrances are closed due to flooding and washed out roadways. And looks to be a long term problem. Yellowstone road and entrance into
