  1. Thanks for the info. I've checking the rates, you don't get a discount on elec sites or additional vehicles. Its great to only have to pay $10 (geezer card) for a dry campsite for a 40' 5th wheel and 30' truck. Then a bummer to pay another $8 for a 8'6" long smart car.
  2. Thanks all for the great info. I plan on parking the rig in West Yellowstone and unloading the smart car and scout out the area to camp.
  3. Thanks for the info. I'm also looking at Bakers Hole campground. At $8 a night for dry camping spot with old geezers card sounds pretty good as it being close to the entrance to the park. Looks to be big rig friendly. First come first serve so I may try to get there the first to the middle part of the week, I may have a better chance of getting a spot.
  4. Thanks, I will try and find the one you are talking about. Do you think I can get in with a 40' 5th wheel and HDT?
  5. The website I went to says its $45 a night, is the one? I'm looking for a boondocking site.
  6. Will be heading to Yellowstone the first of June. Heading from Ca so I guess Hwy 80 then north on Hwy 93 in Nv then work my way over to the west entrance. I will be pulling a 40' 5th wheel with a HDT. Does anyone know of Boondocking sites close to the west entrance I could use?
  7. I once told someone "Getting old sucks". He said getting old was fun, "Being old sucks"

    Wheel torque

    I also lent my torque multiplier to a friend to do a brake job on the front of his truck. After reinstalling the lugs nuts with the multiplier he took the truck to a tire shop to make sure they were tight. He said they couldn't tighten the nuts anymore then they were.

    Wheel torque

    I guess I'm just old school, but I still put them on with a 1" impact. Like I did when I was in the business and what every tire shop that I've seen do also. Our trucks would average 100,000 miles a year and cant recall ever having a issue with loose lug nuts.

    New shoes

    I replaced my recaps with open shoulder Sailun drives. I was concerned that I my get more road noise, but really don't notice any difference.
  11. Yes Rick I agree, you are very lucky.....
  12. Great news, But I still say you need to get a meter, you will use it...……...
  13. A meter is something you should have. They are cheap and very useful. Even if you don't know much about electrical you can get instructions on what to check here on the forum and report back. I know that doesn't help now, but it could in the future. As to your issue now, there isn't much that can be done without a meter to check if your alternator is putting out the correct volts.
  14. Put a volt meter on the batteries before starting truck and then check it after starting the truck. When truck is running it should read between 13.8 to 14.2 volts. Edit.... You should be able to check it right at the alternator also.
  15. We were sitting around yesterday and my cell phone starts squawking. It says TORNADO WARNING in the area and to take shelter. Luckily we finished are house and living in it and not the 5th wheel. The TV said there were funnel clouds spotted around us. We live on the top of a mountain and have a 360 deg view, I looked outside and never seen any. Never been in any tornados, but figured the safest place in the house would be in the hallway in the center of the house. If we were still living in the RV I think I would have got in my car and drove away from the oncoming storm and looked for a public building that could survive a tornado and get in it. Oh did I mention that I live in California. So we don't get Tornados that often so don't have shelter for them.
