RE: Does trailer connector need to be in pick up box

I've used the bumper receptical for many years without problem, mostly because I've not gotten around to putting one in the bed. I run an adjustable strap from hook to hook inside the lower tailgate. To that I attach the emergency brake cable and bungee the umbilical cord. That way any excess remains in the bed instead of over the tailgate, but still allows movement for turns.

RE: Internet use

We have the 20mb package at $100/month. Yikes, that is one expensive plan! :E I'm sure you meant 20 GIG plan. :C

RE: How old is TOO old??

You're wise to consider the future, but you sound like the type of person who will be realistic when it's time to hang up the keys. It sounds to me like you're not there yet, and will know when you are. I would be willing to ride in front of, behind, or with you. Wishing you many more happy, and safe miles.

RE: CPAP machine and batteries

everyone I know who does a "sleep study".... ends up with a prescription for the machine. You noticed that too, eh? Of course, you all get a copy of your study and an explanation, right? I was amazed, and frightened, by mine. I mostly assume anyone having a study is having it for a reason. And cpap is the most effective treatment.

RE: Michigan's Wilderness SP

^^^^ Although, when you consider that Grand Haven is $33 per night, with nothing but electric, maybe it doesn't sound quite as bad. I think all of the sp's are north off $30 for electric only. THAT seems pricey to me. But I still pay it! :)

RE: Michigan's Wilderness SP

Just looked at my email and I got it too. I assume these are new sites, as they're unobstructed. Older sites had a fair amount of trees and beach down to the water, iirc. I'm sure these will be quite popular. Good luck with your reservation.

RE: Another oldie. Not mine. This one is a looker

Beauty. Matching propane tanks are a nice touch.

RE: 7.3L vs. the latest 6.7L - Thoughts? Comparisons? Gripes?

As I don't have any direct experience I'll refrain from commenting...except to say that with everything I've read (and I've read alot), there's no comparison, with all due respect to the venerable 7.3. Apples to oranges. But as I said, I'll refrain from comment. ;)

RE: CPAP machine and batteries

What I am not clear on is does the machine have a healing effect, or just temporary relief? Wayne Temporary. Please define temporary. I think you already did; cpap doesn't "cure" sleep apnea, it only treats it. As you stated, temporary relief. You may sleep better, but when you turn off the machine, you still have sleep apnea. Much like an inhaler doesn't "cure" asthma.

RE: CPAP machine and batteries

What I am not clear on is does the machine have a healing effect, or just temporary relief? As I understand, this is not an age issue.I personally knoe two people between 45 and 50 that have Apnea. Wayne Temporary. It only works while the machine is on. True, it's not an age issue. Often considered to be a weight issue, as excess weight and flesh causes the airway to close when relaxed, as in sleeping (obstructive sleep apnea, or OSA). The CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) forces the airway open, allowing unobstructed breathing. So the only potential "cure" is losing weight, or surgery to reduce the material blocking the airway.

RE: Where did they go?

You know, that rings a bell with me. I can't remember the spelling, but it sure does sound familiar. I tried to find something in the cooking forum and the recipe archives, but I think a lot of that old stuff is gone or inaccessible. Even what's there is pretty old and kind of dated. I don't know if anyone maintains it anymore.

RE: Who's Towing a 5th with a half ton?

They're out there, but a 1/2 ton will limit your choices in fifth wheels. As pin weight ands payload will be your arch enemies, patience and careful, safe operation will need to be your superpowers.

RE: Another oldie 1962

Hope you enjoy them I, for one, certainly do. Love seeing the "old timers". Still hoping to see an old Westwind, the family trailer of my youth. Thanks for posting them!

RE: From diesel to gas.

I went from a diesel 3/4 ton tv to a 1 ton v10 gasser and regretted it big time! Not much later went back to diesel.

RE: I learned something last weekend...

Granted, I've got the trail air, not the airborne, but that doesn't sound right. I don't think you should need to repeatedly fill and deflate for hitching. You sure your jaws are releasing correctly? Is this the first time you've used the airborne? Hopefully someone will have an answer so I can learn something today!
