RE: Which State Has the Best Drivers?

Best and worst driver State standing fluctuates according to my travel schedule since the worst drivers follow me wherever I go, even across State lines. I'm always the only person on the road that knows how to drive-?!?!

RE: inadequate repairs and length of time to repair

Not that it matters of course, but just for the record: is the warranty work being done by the same dealer you bought the rig from?

RE: inadequate repairs and length of time to repair

Camping World should stop performing warranty services- as should every other seller of RVs- as long as the industry continues to put JUNK on the lots. The list of defects on this rig alone is appalling, and nothing out of the ordinary. In what other industry is the retail seller expected to do the work that should have been done at the factory? Ridiculous.

RE: trailer brakes stuck on- dodge 3500

Could be related to the emergency braking setup on the trailer...do the trailer brakes release when you unplug from the truck? If not, the breakaway kit is the likely culprit.

RE: Electrical truck to trailer connection question

Seems to me that since you're just trying to power up trailer interior, there's no need to duplicate any pigtail functions except for ground and the 12v connection from the truck to the trailer. Replicate the connections at those points. Depending on distance wire should probably be bigger gauge wire than an ordinary pigtail has, though.

RE: Temporary hooking up truck to trailer question

My local RV guy will make a pigtail as long as you want with your choice of ends. Only charge is for the parts.

RE: ADD and can't make up my mind......

Sounds like Supercharged. But Supercharged uses PERIODS here and there! This O.P. just put up a sentence so long it would make Bulwer-Lytton green with envy..

RE: Propane Tank Recertification $$$

My local place charged me five bucks for my latest tank recert. The most I've ever paid was thirty, but that included a full valve upgrade to the "new" OPD style. This was on a specialty size bottle that would have cost me sixty bucks to replace.

RE: Would you buy this truck?

Well, apparently they didn't sell it the other day when I called, it's still listed for sale on their website. :E Can it be possible that the dealer was...gasp...shinin' you on when he said the following five days ago????? Just called......$28,000 FIRM !!!!!! I figured around 22-25 but not 28K. However, he said it's almost sold, some dude is trading in two Mustangs and apparently a kidney for it. Crazy aint it!! I'm shocked...SHOCKED!!!! ;)

RE: attn: Weight Police

3750 per tire in single wheel application? 2049 in dual wheel application? I'm thinking the O.P. got that one right- tire payload is given as so many pounds at a specific PSI. One rarely sees mfr tire specs on a rig that exactly "match" a given tire's full capacity. My guess is that Ford spec'd a lower PSI for the OEM tires at least partly for comfort-of-ride purposes. This likely because most pickups spend 90% of their time as passenger vehicles; and if tires that size are inflated-to-the-max the truck would ride like a buckboard when not under a "work" load.

RE: How much snow is too much.

Density counts...so does water content. Four feet of snow from one snowfall is a lot lighter than four feet total over a season. Dunno what "standard" there is if any for Rv's, but typical residential roofs are designed to withstand 30 pounds of load per square foot, which is roughly four feet of fluffy snow, two feet of dense snow, or six inches of water (ice). If you want to know how much weight is on your RV roof right now, just go out there and scoop up a cubic foot of whatever's up there. Weigh that, multiply by the depth, and you'll have the per-square-foot load actually on the roof.

RE: A very secure load

Edit: OOPS! I posted the pic below as bragging rights for the U.S.A.'s long history of overloading trucks... but just realized that the pic itself is from AUSTRALIA!

RE: Language barriers?

I'm a Western border dweller, so little contact with French-speaking Canadians. But Canadian ENGLISH can be perplexing at times, too. Favorites picked up from my neighbors-to-the-North are "keener", "fubar", and "hooped" none of which I understood until I looked them up in the closest thing to an online guide to Canuckspeak I could find, at this link

RE: Would you buy this truck?

"$28K"??? I'd have to see the paperwork to believe it. Not that used car dealers ever lie! ;)

RE: Unfriendly customs officers :(

One of my Mexican buddies who is a dually, Mexican and Canadian, when he and his wife enter the U.S., they use their Canadian passports, when entering Canada, they use their Mexican passports. He shouldn't do that. If you have citizenship in a country, you are to use that country's passport to enter. Says who? There is absolutely nothing that says you have to. The language quoted below from a Canadian Government site having to do with Mexican travel seems to indicate that at least when entering/leaving MEXICO, holders of dual Canadian/Mexican citizenship are to use their Mexican passports. Seems logical to presume they're to use their Canadian docs when entering Canada. Under Mexican legislation (Art. 12, Ley de Nacionalidad), holders of dual Canadian and Mexican citizenship are required to enter and leave Mexico as Mexican citizens. Those who contravene the law may incur heavy fines (Art. 33-1, Ley de Nacionalidad). Source

RE: A Return Trip to Alaska Motivation

Never been to Alaska, but I've made return trips to other destinations. Reason being that the first time everything was new- second trip allows one to concentrate on areas of interest already "learned".
