Here's a quote from the article I posted above:

"Is this the best way to run a reservation system for a sprawling system of some 100,000 campsites spread across the National Park System, U.S. Forest Service, and U.S. Bureau of Land Management. It's a timely question to ask, as last fall the reservation system was taken over by Booz Allen Hamilton, which Outside Magazine described as a "management consultant giant..." and which no doubt demonstrated its ability to handle the job when the contract came up. Under the terms of that ten-year contract, which kicked in October 1, Booz Allen Hamilton is being paid $182 million. "

That's your $182 million tax dollars still not at work...this in addition to the fees they collect which will no doubt go up with no oversight.. Wonder who they are connected to. (exactly)

Luckily there are still great campground hosts and volunteers...don't give them a hard time or forget to thank them.

Campers Inn called today and said there were 3 places the they resealed in the vertical seam near the awning rail. They are storing the rig indoors this weekend since it's snowing and they want it to dry out. Monday or Tueday they will do a water test and get back to me.

There should be a cap in the center of the handle, right above where the valve shaft is.  A pocket knife should be able to pop it off (don't let it fall into drain!).  Under that cap is a screw.  Remove screw and handle should pull off.

Joseph - you know the privatized don't HAVE to give the full discounts promised by the Senior pass and such?

First trip out, first shower.  Cold water handle broke off.  Canít see how to remove.  CHEAP plastic.  Any experience on how to remove, replace?

Yup I get it. I learned a lesson, not that we couldn't do with out but we enjoy our trips so much more with one. I'm currently dealing on a 2005 wrangler TJ unlimited with 34,000 miles in like show room condition. I'm not keen on the JK or the LJ for that matter. Not a rush, but I will have a toad once again.

I am like 2Lucky.   I can't imagine the way we use our PC that we would enjoy it nearly as much if we didn't have a toad.  We have a Cherokee Trailhawk we tow and it is perfect and is my wife's full time vehicle.  Without a toadie we couldn't do the things we like to do when we boondock for several weeks at a time.   We choose the Trailhawk for the clearance, weight, 4 down easy, and we simply like Jeeps.   I have have driven a Jeeps  for almost thirty years (six of them all together) and every time I think I want something else I change my mind and stick with 'em.  Yes, they are quirky and can be rough riding but the Trailhawk is the best one if have ever owned.   It is a 2014 and has performed perfectly without any exception.   Plus, it is fun and economical to operate.

We always did fine without a toad, until we got one. Now can't imagine going without it unless we know we won't need it. It hauls the bikes and the canoe and associated gear plus firewood, chairs etc.
We love our 2000 Tracker 4 door 4x4 high miles but well maintained looks like new...actually fun and comfy to drive. $4500 Gets us to those trail heads.
RVI brake system with RVI tire pressure monitor on all 10 wheels is great peace of mind. Easy set up and take down and can take it to the next toad if we ever lose "Dash" to old age.

General Discussion / Slide Opening
« Last post by rvrunner on January 18, 2020, 10:06:16 am »
Look under the slide, there's an opening, a slot with 2 rubber flaps on each side, it's there so the slide can pass by a wiring harness when put in and out, It doesn't seal out the outside. Critters can get inside the rv, mice, spiders, snakes. Is it possible, or has anyone ever rerouted the wires so that opening can be closed up?
