See if you can find another fellow Explorer owner near by - swap transfer cases temporarily for a quick test.

what part of your 4x4 is not working?

If its a E shift t case problem SIMPLE remove the shift motor and shift your truck with a pair of plyers

did I miss it, but do you have Gen 1 and auto hubs or lockouts, if u have autohubs, u have mainly 2 areas to check for no 4wd, its either the hubs or the t-case shift motor, and yes cheap temporary check to t-case is take shift motor off and manually turn it, I have used this method often on beaters, if still doesnt work, your hubs are blown, check them. My guess is 1 of those 2 things

Second gen, and I can hear the Shift Motor working Im starting to think its internal, like shift fork guides in the transfer case, whats the chances of that. Im still going either way, just a bit down about the 4x4 not working.

My thoughts are pull one out of a junk yard if I have time cant be to hard to install.

Question for the peoples that have stayed at the KOA before:

How are the shower/bath room conditions? Clean? Scummy? Do I need to bring something to stand on in the shower? I am not a germaphobe, just don't like standing in scum while trying to get clean is all. I have been to some nasty camp places before, rather not get surprised.

Small? Large? long lines? Water pressure?

Figure this would give others a heads up as well.

The showers are decent. About what you'd expect from a camp. Can't remember if they have anything to stand on in the shower, but they are cleaned every day so they don't get too bad. Lines vary by time of day. Early morning seems best. Evenings are worst as thats when most people are coming in from a day of trail riding and want to get the excess dirt off.

Anybody have room in their campsite, or does anyone want to split a campsite?

Minor change in my plans - I'm going to camp in Ouray!
