  1. I really appreciate the advice. I will definitely weigh myself but I need to set PSI before I do that because once I leave the top of the mountain that I am at, I wont come back until spring. . Im thinking from what I have read, 70 (80 max psi) on the front truck tires and 73 on the back. The trailer I am thinking 60 all around (65 max PSI). Would I be ok with that?
  2. Art, I have never heard of axle weights. Ive done a 2 year trip around the country with a 5th wheel and have never heard of them. Although my new trailer is a pull behind. I know my RV wont be overloaded based on the sticker on the door and the truck is a diesel made to haul so that can pretty much haul anything.
  3. I have a 2016 Sierra short bed Diesel and my tires are Michelin Defender LTX M/S LT265/60R20 Load Range E Max PSI 80. I am about to do an 8 month trip around the country pulling an 8,000 lb tow behind RV. I will be going through the dessert often. What PSI would you put your front an back tires at? Also, the tires on my travel trailer are load range D max 65 psi. What PSI would you put on the tires in the RV?
  4. OK great. I will check these links out thank you! I dont mind paying. Alot of BLM land you have to buy a pass. My problem is I can never find the prices on state parks until I get there and then alot of times they are very expensive. My main goal is dispersed camping in nature like BLM land offers.
  5. Thanks, I looked at state lands but the problem is they rarely post their prices. In PA for example, they charge 55.00 per nite in some places. I wish they posted prices but it just seems that its alot of work to find out what kind of camping is available and pricing when trying to plan to go to state land ahead of time.
  6. I am traveling from Eastern PA to Eastern Texas soon and was hoping to stay in places that are like BLM land along the way. Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be any BLM land on this trip. Im looking for places that is dispersed and I can be somewhat isolated and make my own power. Places with very little fee's like BLM land. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
  7. Im about to go on the road solo and staying in alot of places off the grid. Im looking for some wireless outdoor security cams that I can watch live on my computer from inside of my RV. I will have wifi in the RV but prefer not to take the WIFI bandwidth up if there is an alternative way. Im hoping to watch the outdoor wildlife and of course for safety reasons. Anyone have any advice? Looking to order something from Amazon.
  8. WOW, thank you so much for all of this great info! I am going to go through it tonight as I am currently unloading everything I own from my home to go on the road full time. The reason that I want a CB is that growing up, I have always had one and I know how to talk on it and it will keep me entertained during my travels. I have also been in some dangerous situations on my last RV trip when I wished that I had one.
  9. Im going to be doing an 8 month solo trip in my 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 4 door long bed pulling a 33 ft 2015 KZ Spree. I was hoping to buy a CB radio tomorrow night off of Amazon and install this weekend. Ive been looking and cannot figure out what to get. I assume an antenna comes with it? How do I run the antenna wire to the outside of the truck? I would like to get something regardless of price that would provide me with weather and the most entertainment and emergency help as possible. Any advice on what to get would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  10. So I have been givin a warning for my statement to wa_desert_rat. I would like to apologize to him as I went too far and I do agree with the warning. Thanks!
  11. I have 5 full bars so I have great reception but do not have a good speed. I got "page cannot be displayed when I tried to open this website 3 times in a row. Finally it went through. I do have my wifi and luckily it works great here. The reception is not the problem. The speed is so bad that it wont open up pages at times. I meant for this post to answer a simple question that has turned into 5 pages worth of responses that really didnt answer the question.
  12. Ok I will stop asking the question because I have done so several times and a very small few has answered it but most havent. Wa_ dessert, if you scroll back through a few of my replys I said that I have asked others in this park and they say it is their biggest complaint. I have asked the staff and they say it is the biggest complaint that they get. I wont repeat myself any longer. It is what it is.
  13. and how does this apply to my question asking why Escapees is the worse when it comes to internet compared to other parks?
