  1. Had same problem with friends trailer, was a problem with the ignightor spacing. If you don't have experience with heaters and trailers it would be best to get professional help. Where are you located and what temps outside are you having. Wish I could be of more help. Jim
  2. When you said you switched tanks, was that by using the switch/valve at the tanks? Are you positive that the new tank is full? If you have not done so already, switch out the tanks manualy ( meaning swap tank position with each other., moving the known empty tank to the other side and installing the "new" tank to empty tank position.)This will tell you if your switch over valve is good or bad. Good luck Jim
  3. Custer , SD,. Durango Co area, West Yellowstone, Mt. All have lots of things to do. Many activities, or just hanging around to enjoy the wildlife and cooler weather. Only drawback was major hail damage to truck and 5 er in South Dakota. Still a nice stay.
  4. You maybe should add where you are and your route and dates in your planned trip around thanksgiving. Would help for someone to possibly meet make a deal. Just a thought. Jim
  5. try to remove the LNB and hold it/ point it towards the dish. Holding it as near the same distance as when it's in its fixed position. You should see 101 at some point. Will tell you if it's a bent arm problem. I've done this before. Hope this helps. Jim
  6. Nice discription. What size holding tanks does it have . Thanks, Jim
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. Yes turn at the fire house then about 9-10 miles to spring creek
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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

  15. I use the propane pro com heater too. Very efficient use of propane. Very useful when boondocking.
