  1. Anyone else have any problems with the burner tubes? Seems like I have gone thru several,. I use the grill a lot and clean the sides often but not after every use. thanks, jim
  2. Some must reads in my opinion are Handybob.com. And Jack Mayer articles. These are a few lots of info out there. I agree with last post. Lot of variables to consider. jim
  3. Yes turn at the fire house then about 9-10 miles to spring creek
  4. Part of the road is gravel. Gets a few wash board places as season goes by. I had a35' 5th wheel with Ram dually, no problems. Road was gravel in campground but individual campsites were dirt/grass. I believe they were going to gravel sites but don't know if they did or not. Call ranger station in West Yellowstone and they can up date you . I really enjoyed the area.
  5. I was camp host last year. There was no fee involved. There is a consession campground on the same road with water and electric. Could be the one you saw. Checked website for Spring Creek Campground, West Yellowstone, Mt ,. Did not show fee involved. There is a commercial campground in Montana called Spring Creek. Might be the one you saw. The one I am referring to is 18 from west gate. Hope this helps.
  6. Spring creek on Lake Hebgen is good location. Vault toilets no water or power. 1st few spots after the camp host space are the best. 14 day limit . Watch for the Bears. Lol
  7. I would suggest reading handy bob.com. Very good informative read. Afterwards you may not be an expert but will have a very good understanding of solar systems. Jack myer has some very good info also. jim
  8. I just saw your old post here about Spring Creek. We took the old class C and finished the season there three days a week. Bugs were bad then it got cold and no bugs. Loved the view . Nothing exciting happened around the lake the rest of the season . The fire was the king of the compound. Just signed new contract will start May 1st if snow let's us in,  right now the snow on the edge of the drive must be four ft high. Stop in if your near hope everything went well on your trip home. Ott

  9. I use the propane pro com heater too. Very efficient use of propane. Very useful when boondocking.
  10. Shopping for tires and have looked at Sailun tires alsoMichelins. Currently have Michelins with about 40k on them (they are worn out). These are LTX model. Sailuns get good reviews as far as I can tell. Price wise the Sailuns win. PS I pull a 18k Excel 5th wheel. I would appreciate your views suggestions. Thanks ,Jim
  11. Thanks to all who replied. Jim
  12. I want to add 2 6v batteries to my 2 6v battery system . The system will remain 12v. I will add two batteries of the same brand and near the same age. My problem is that the only place I can install new batteries is about 5 foot from existing batteries. I will use 2/0 cables and make sure both positive and negative leads are the same length . I will also be adding 200 to 300 watts of panels to an existing 280 watt system. anyone have any comments or suggestions thanks
  13. I just received the Viair 300p air compressor and have given it a try on my 17.5" 5th wheel tire. Very pleased, outstanding product. Brought the tire from around 8opsi to 125psi in a matter of minutes. Quite and easy to use. With the storage bag will fit and travel well yet remain ready for use in a few seconds. i highly recommend this compressor and the price was pretty easy on the wallet. I paid $ 128 delivered. Jim
  14. Your wake up voltage is good. Battery was pretty much at rest and showing 12.7 v could not ask for much better than that. If you run the generator the same time your solar is providing power whichever one has the higher voltage will be the one providing amperage. So both with the sun shine is wasting fuel. I still would suggest buying Trimetic TM 2030 battery monitor. Using it is the only way to know for sure the condition of your batteries. Has lots more information available too. Jim
