Big trip new Roo 23ikss. Any advice on trailer prep.

Heading to Yellowstone in a few weeks in out new Roo. Did some checkout trips and all is good. Wondering about wheels, tires etc do I need to check bearing grease, etc. can I depend on a fresh from the factory unit on a 3400 mile trip?

Go for it! Just make sure you change the oil on the tv! Lol Check the pressure in the spare and the tires and enjoy your vacation! I'm jealous! Cheers

I would give everything a quick look, air pressure and lift each tire and give it a spin.

Check the grease in the bearings. Not always well greased from the factory.

I think you got just about every answer possible. My advice is - if you're worried about it; check it and remember Murphy's Law. You can't prevent every possible thing that can go wrong, but a thorough check of both the tv and the trailer (including everything in between) cna sure make you feel safer. The important thing is to have fun!!

What are you using for power out there? Only one campground in the park has electricity. Also, bring some warm clothes. I wore my winter coat in July!

- be sure your TV has had a recent oil, transmission fluid, and rear differential fluid change
- check your tire pressure regularly
- keep your speed below 65mph
- camp for free along the way using http://www.overnightrvparking.com
- create a thread on here and post your adventures. A lot of us would love to make that trip.

Be safe and have fun!

Yep, unless you're staying outside the park, you'll have to dry camp.

Fishing Bridge CG, the only one inside YNP with hookups, doesn't allow soft-sided campers there. No tents, no popups, no hybrids unless you turtle in your hybrid.

If you're dry camping, hope you're experienced at it.

Lake Hebgen - Yellowstone Holiday RV Campground & Marina

We stayed about 15 miles north of West Yellowstone on Lake Hebgen.

Campground was Yellowstone Holiday | Camping Fishing RV Campgrounds. They had heated floors in the shower rooms! We were there two years ago in early May so pretty much had our pick of sites. I would stay there again.
