RE: Montana "hi-line"

If you visit Fort Benton, visit the Shep statue. Quite the tear-jerker story. There’s also the Missouri Breaks Interpretive Center and Old Fort Benton.

RE: Montana "hi-line"

If you like small towns, I'd highly suggest Virgelle Mercantile. Rent a canoe from there to explore the Missouri Breaks, stay at the B&B or rent a cabin, or just browse the antiques. There are quite a few historic buildings there that made up the townsite that are on the historic register. We camped at Coal Banks Landing BLM site just east of Virgelle.

RE: Using RV generator as backup for house?

3000 watts should run that house fine. Electrician will probably put the critical items on a 120v sub panel in addition to installing a switch and a power inlet to connect power. This is the switch that I had installed in my house for use with my 3K inverter generator. Works great and allows you to watch the wattage being drawn on each leg. Wow. $300 would buy a lot of heavy duty extension cords.

RE: Found a unicorn

Why doesn’t/wouldn’t it have towing mirrors?

RE: tire changing jack

I've successfully tested and used my tow vehicle jack for my trailer. I'm not sure why it wouldn't work for others.

Don't expect it to be open anytime soon: width=500

RE: Cascade, ID to Yellow Pine, ID

On my bucket list... Yellow Pine Music & Harmonica Festival this year 7/30-8/1. Not sure when you plan to be there, but could be fun.

RE: Andersen hitch

Careful @LITEPHIL - someone might try to prove to you the earth isn’t flat either.

RE: Andersen hitch

I am very familiar with the operation of the hitch. I guess if it transfers even a 2lbs onto the front axle it can call its self a WD hitch. Please explain how the weight,I mean real weight like 500 lbs is transferred onto the front of the vehicle.I researched this hitch along with others before I bought most most recent. Again. please tell me how the weight is transferred with no leverage. Kinda hard to relay the laws of physics on a forum, but as simply as I can put it - the “pull” force with the chains and bushings creates a “push” force at the front of the tow vehicle and the trailer. The hitch is the fulcrum - hinge point. A force on one side (the bottom of the hitch) creates an equal and opposite force above the hitch. That’s the leverage that you say you are familiar with, but apparently don’t understand. If my words don’t prove it well, then have it proved to you at the scales.

RE: Chipmunks

I’ve heard of making an appetizer of 1:1 peanut butter and plaster of paris, put in a spot that only the tree rats can find. As I understand it may induce terminal constipation.

RE: Oops ??

Stuff happens. If it’s an inconspicuous spot, I’d just tack on a dab of Eternabond and call it good. Don’t worry...there will be many more bumps and bruises that may hurt a lot more :)

RE: Andersen hitch

If you understand the basic function of a weight distribution system then you understand the function is to take weight off the rear axle and distribute it onto the front axle of the tow vehicle. The only way to do this is with pretty serious leverage. When you see those large forged spring bars flexing and putting weight onto the front axle you see what kind of force it takes. Those 2 little springs may help with sway control since its trying to keep things straight but will be very ineffective in actually transferring weight to the front of the truck. Pretty hokie set up if you are going to call it a weight distribution set up. That 4 or 5 inches of leverage won't do a thing on a heavier trailer and doubt it would do much on a light trailer. Save your money and get a Reese,a Curt or a 4way system. Seems pretty obvious you don’t have an Andersen or understand how it works (which, by the way, DOES work). The sway control comes from the friction cone. The urethane springs compress more as the chains are tightened, which does transfer weight to the front axle. Just because the Andersen is innovative and looks different doesn’t mean it doesn’t work. Best parts: light and grease free.

RE: Lolo Pass area Campgrounds

Sounds like you might not realize how rural this area is? The only “resort” is the Lochsa Lodge, but I don’t believe they have full service RV sites. Your options, as far as I know, are Lolo MT or Kooskia/Kamiah ID. If you’re good with boondocking there are many beautiful Forest Service campgrounds available.

RE: Pioneer Mountains Scenic Byway Montana

Another camping option, and another thing to see in the area, is Bannack State Park. Neat ghost town.
