RE: Manufacturers making defective tires

Thanks for the report. For the record: What's the trailer make/model/year, and what was the tire size and load range? Thanks!

RE: Airstream>>

What percentage off the MSRP can someone negotiate on a new Airstream? 110%-120% is considered a Good Deal by folks determined to own one of these American Icons. Anything under that would relegate the deal to that of "it's just a trailer".

RE: Are Most Class A Motorhome Owners Hermits?

It seems the only time you see the Class A motorhome owners outside is when they have to take their little fufu dog out to do its business. Can we stay on topic and leave out the passive-aggressiveness You know what they say, people who live in glass trailers... :h You make no sense. Bruce That's because they live in a glass trailer. Which makes no sense, either, but to each his own, right? :)

RE: Can a tire explode from Over-inflation?

What's the max stamped on the tires? Nine people out of ten will inflate to that number instead of to the one marked on the door panel. And unless actual inflation exceeds its labeled max psi the tire is not, technically speaking, overinflated.

RE: Motorhome with towing capabilities - how do I approach this?

The toad plus tow bar will be say 3,200lbs. Winnebago Industries is not specifying GCWR (at least I couldn't find a number), so where does that leave me in terms of legally towing the Honda? Contrary to popular opinion, and at the risk of starting a firestorm of dissent: There's no "legal" standard per towing capacity- numbers given by manufacturers are just vehicle capability. Lacking that number from Winnebago, you'll have to work backwards from the equipment itself. First thing I'd look at is the hitch, if there is one. That would obviously have to have sufficient capacity. After that, you might take advantage of Changing Gears' tow calculator, which allows for the entry of various component figures and spits out a number. It's designed for travel trailers, but I see no reason why it can't be used in this scenario. Do note that components addressed there are mainly axles- capacity of the engine to pull the weight would have to be addressed elsewhere. Here's the link

RE: Pulling Power

Looks like someone was trolling and got the response they were looking for. Seriously, read the post. 16k hitch for a 17k trailer? Ladeez and Gentlemen.... I think we have a winner! And in only three pages, too. :B

RE: How to avoid bad campgrounds

Go to a more expensive park. Or a Public one. (State, Federal, County, City) The only fulltimers you'll likely encounter in those will be Camp Hosts. Especially this time of year, Highway 101 can be traversed its entire length with all overnights spent in a Public park.

RE: How to avoid bad campgrounds

Where are you? "101" goes through three States.

RE: Airstream>>

Trying to wrap my head around the phrase "trailer status symbol"-? Keep trying......you will get there! If you need any assistance in 'seeing it' head over to the Airstreams forums, or to the Alumapalooza annual owners rally gathtering of those that 'get it' at Jackson Center at the factory. Hang with those for a while and it will come to you, too. Whether you agree with it might be a secondary issue, but I guarantee you will 'get it' around those folks. For so many of the owners there is no other travel trailer they would own.Oh. I see. Sorry! I guess I've always thought that a "trailer status symbol" was a sort of busty blonde in cutoff shorts draped over the Camaro parked in the driveway, slathering it with suds and whatnot. Especially whatnot. :B

RE: Evaporated milk

My mother-in Law has made that Eagle-based stuff for years- you don't need to pierce the can. That method must have evolved due to folks' failure to keep the boiling water level high enough to cover the can. Which will of course lead to disaster. Any unopened can's contents can be heated/cooked in boiling water so long as the water level isn't permitted to fall below the top of the can. Here's a link to the "traditional" process, which in my opinion is likely to yield a more consistent result than any method involving pre-piercing/opening the can.

RE: Living in an RV in New York City during winter

bedstuyloveaffair(the screen name speaks volumes to me, LOL) Me, too- so much so that I Googled it. Turns out it's (also?) the name of a sort of art gallery/ project or something operating in that area. I can't make heads or tails of the website, so unsure exactly WHAT it's all about: Link Any chance there's a connection there, O.P.?

RE: Evaporated milk

How do you use evaporated milk? The name explains itself- it's somewhat concentrated, excess water having been evaporated out. Straight out of the can, it's pretty strong- dilute to your own comfort level. Nothing you can do to it will make it taste like "fresh" milk, but it's an adequate substitute for those with limited refrigeration. Do note that such products as "Eagle Condensed Milk" are a whole different animal, they often having been not only further concentrated but heavily sweetened.

RE: Are Most Class A Motorhome Owners Hermits?

I have noticed, while wandering around campgrounds, that most people who RV in Class A motorhomes very rarely spend any time outside. Bruce I have noticed that there are sometimes strange guys (some of them perhaps named "Bruce"?) wandering around campgrounds taking note of other people's comings and goings. We differ in our approach to dealing with such observations...I usually just notify campground security.

RE: Chains?

My worry with the AutoSock is how long they will last before they need to be replaced. This is the same reason I put shoes on my feet before going outside in socks... Most add-on traction devices (including chains) don't spend that much time actually in service- and when they are, it's at low speeds. I hope! These look like they're pretty well made- likely to last well in ordinary service. But that name..."Autosocks"??? They'd sound more substantial if they called them "Autogaloshes" or something.

RE: Gaudy colored and striped RV's

BTW - How much chrome (or gaudy paint) on a Model T ?? ~:B Let's let Henry Ford himself answer that one by way of quoting his remark about the Model T, published in his autobiography "My Life and Work": "Any customer can have a car painted any colour that he wants so long as it is black." Source
