RE: The result of my cross Canada tow

:B You towed a forty year old trailer across Canada and got where you were going with MOST OF it intact. I call that a major victory!

RE: Keeping residential fridge doors closed during travel

I'm almost at the point of hammering a 2x4 in the door handles to hold them closed (just kidding - for now!). There's something wrong with this solution??? Anything that can't be fixed with a hammer and a two-by-four just can't be fixed at all, in my opinion.

RE: See they can get along...

Long Beach Peninsula, right? I saw you guys down there...almost offered to come over with my Kia Sportage to pull you out of the sand but since that Ram came along I figured he could handle all three of y'all by himself! :B

RE: Time for new tires - Help

Also what about LT tires. That is what is on my truck and they are a Michelin MX2 which is a 10 ply tire. Would those work or should I stick with a ST tire. Just looking for some guidance - this is certainly not my area of expertice. Thanks in advance !!!!! The Michelin MX2 is a P-rated (passenger car) tire, not technically an LT despite any hype to the contrary. Also, the biggest 16 inch MX-2 tire made has a load index of 114, indicating a carrying capacity of only 2039 pounds. This is far below the 3500 lb. carrying capacity of your present Towmaxes that have evidently served pretty well during the typical 3-5 years that can be expected of a tire on an RV trailer. And unless you're planning on hauling rims to a tire dealer without telling them what rig it's going on, it's unlikely in the extreme that any such outfit will install tires so drastically below the trailer maker's original specs.

RE: Any questions

I think that I would have a few questions. :-) :B Me, too! For example: -Which locks are easiest to get past? -What's the most likely time of day that folks won't be home? -What brand of dog treats work best to make a guard dog My Friend? Last but not least: When did you get out?

RE: Another 2014 RAM 2500 Squat

Take the family on a round trip tour of various campgrounds with a 2,000 pound-plus-pin-weight fiver and I'll be REALLY impressed! :)

RE: Yellowstone: what's the big deal about it?

Experts like Clark Griswold say that the Grand Canyon takes even less time than Yellowstone! http://stream1.gifsoup.com/view8/4685315/grand-canyon-o.gif ;)

RE: How do I test fuel efficiency of generator?

Remove the tanks before and after the test and weigh them. Simpler still: Stick a bathroom scale under the operational tank, read the weight, run the A/C for a few hours, and read again. FYI, if it helps: There are 21,548 BTU's in one pound of propane. (Since it actually changes volume according to temperature, weight is really the only way to get a real reading of how much propane is used.)

RE: New common method for stating tow rating

The thing that eludes me is why anyone thinks that these new "standards" will prove useful to RVers. Check out the pic below showing the weighted vehicles being used for the tests! All the weight is carefully distributed and down wa-a-a-a-y low. In what universe does the SAE imagine that a test involving solid weight strategically placed bears any resemblance to the challenges involved in maneuvering an equivalent weight of a huge, likely imbalanced, unwieldy box down the road at highway speeds??? In my opinion, aerodynamics alone will lop many pounds off those "capacity" figures. http://www.autonews.com/apps/pbcsi.dll/storyimage/CA/20130211/OEM03/302119913/AR/0/AR-302119913.jpg&MaxW=622&cci_ts=20130212133657 width=400

RE: Would someone please explain fantasy football to me.....

"Fantasy Football" in my life is what my Husband is really doing when he SAYS he's getting together with the boys to "work out". All us wives know that the only exercise being had is elbow-and-jawbone-bending, hence the "Fantasy" part of the term; the football part makes it sound manly. I s'pose it's an improvement over the term we wives use to refer to this activity, which is "virtual exercise"! ;)

RE: Can't Upload Pictures?

trying to upload pics can anyone help? Easiest for me if uploading from my computer is to go to this special upload page designed by Mod. 1492. Just upload the pic(s) there, then copy the resulting URL(s) and paste into your post. Easy peasy! Thanks again, 1492!

RE: Questionable Breeding

I know this breed (The Millie) since I have one, too.... a main trait is their long-sufferance of whatever we Human Persons fling their way. As an example, here's my "Millie" making the best of the fact that her water dish froze overnight on one of our recent trips. http://i.imgur.com/DFLZiXtl.jpg Who wouldn't love such a plucky breed? :B

RE: stranded

The death penalty isn't enough punishment for those who are responsible for this travesty, but it would be a good start.

RE: National (Federal) Park Statistics

On average 52% of all Federal campsites were at least 40 feet long, but a number of reviewers mentioned bad or winding park roads in Federal parks. Verizon was the most mentioned successful cell service. AT&T was a distant 2nd place, Sprint a very distant 3rd, and T-Mobile not at all. . Yikes. Site length/road access and cell phone service being measurements of the success of our National Parks. Who knew?

RE: Tires?!?

I've read all over and have been made aware that the TowMaxx tires are no good!!! ..........snip............ Current tires on the unit are Power King TowMaxx STR ST235/80R16. .......snip.... What you've "heard" aside: In the three years you've had the Towmax's on, how many failures/flats/difficulties have you had with them? That said: frankly, I think you'll get better advice if you consult whatever tire folks you trust to put rubber on the rest of your vehicles. You'll get nothing but folks' preconceived notions here! Including your pre conceived notions. He hasn't had any flats because he hasn't even bought the camper yet! In my defense, and please excuse the delay since I've been gone actually camping: The O.P.'s original post read as if he was talkjng about a unit he already owned. That's the post I and others responded to. The O.P. edited his opener later to reflect the fact that, as you mention, this is a unit that he does not yet own. That information being completely new to me, I'd simply say that any RV I bought with tires that old would get brand spankin' new ones, type/brand according to the advice of my trusted Tire Guys. I'd never take a chance that anyone else took care of vehicle tires in the way I'm accustomed to doing.

RE: Hidden Camera's in campgrounds

Based on a 2010 "article" and except for the presumably original source above, only found at anti-government websites. Puh-leeze!
