RE: Sorry, but another Nitrogen in tires question

One reason NASCAR uses compressed nitrogen vs compressed air is a safety factor. Compressed air contains enough oxygen to be a combustion accelerator. Not good in a NASCAR pit. You might be able to put out a small fire with a blast of compressed pure nitrogen. Compressed air is actually classified as a hazardous material by DOT---as an oxidizer, hazard class 5.1.

RE: Driver of MH indicted in death of Police Officer

Do keep in mind that he has only been indicted, not convicted. There are some extenuating circumstances, according to the driver's version of the incident. He said that he came around a curve and did not have time to get stopped or get over to a different lane. There is a curve on I-65 where the incident occurred, but I'm sure traffic was already slowing down in the adjacent lanes, due to the wreck. If he had been paying attention to conditions, he would have noticed that, and started slowing down or moving over way back. There are 4 lanes on each direction of I-65 at that point.

RE: Helping Hands --- Gotta Be The Cat's Rear...

It looks very useful and reasonably priced. I'm tempted to get one for myself. But I do have to wonder...how many legs do they think an octopus has? :@ That's what I was thinking too, LOL! 2 of them would make an octopus! That looks incredibly useful, and I have 2 "good" hands. I can think of LOTS of uses for it.

RE: New to RV's, new to this forum.

Check for rust damage, if it's in Minnesota.

RE: Pickup Decisions...

If a truck has been for sale for too long, it's quite likely overpriced. In general, I would prefer a newer vehicle with higher miles over an older one with lower miles. There are a lot of components that just deteriorate with age, regardless of miles. Plus newer trucks generally have better safety and convenience features, and nicer interiors.

RE: 300 KW solar panels

Interesting, George, I can't get solar panels or cider at any of the dump sites I use. LOL! Ditto. And definitely wouldn't buy ANYTHING someone is hawking at a dump.

RE: How a TT is built

No inherent issue with the assembly line process---except that NOWHERE do I see any provision for a quality control checkpoint. And the speed the workers are moving makes it easy to understand how things are done halfway.

RE: side windows leak

Is something causing excessive amounts of water from the roof to cascade down over the windows? It's also possible that the leak is somewhere else, like on the roof, and water is running down the inside of the wall, around the window frame, and making it to the inside at the lower edge of the window. Make sure you don't have low spots that are draining poorly during heavy rain.

RE: My RV money is spent ... now what do I pull it with?

Definitely a 250/2500 minimum for that load. Diesels will pull best at elevations like in the Rockies, but are $$$. You don't mention if you are looking new or used, but a 2500 SUV like this one will pull it anywhere you want to go. Add a correctly set up Equalizer hitch--for the best sway control and weight distribution---to that rig and you will have an awesome setup. And I agree with your wife that a SUV is a much more useful travel vehicle than a truck.

RE: Prepping for cold weather camping

Great ideas! A tip on the fiberglass---you could put it in some trash bags to make it easier to handle, and keep the backing dry. That stuff is nasty if it gets in your clothes.

RE: Adventure of a Lifetime

A belated reply to your question about fruits/veggies---check on the web for farmer's markets in/near the town where you are. Many of them have Facebook pages, too.

RE: Buying a Rental Class C. How many of us out there? (Long)

I like your solution!

RE: securing a travel trailer

I think that ball lock and the ones that cover the lug nuts would be a fairly decent deterrent. at least they would slow down the theft and cause them to look elsewhere for an easier target. bumpy Which is all that any kind of lock can do, and generally enough.

RE: Buying a Rental Class C. How many of us out there? (Long)

One question---Do the rental companies remove their company decals before selling the units? I'm not crazy about the idea of driving around with "El Monte RV" in giant red letters front and rear. Leave them on. You can do most anything and everybody will think your a rookie. People will help you level your rig, help you back in and at dump site just stand by your hose and somebody will come running. Just a thought. OK serious now...I've never seen any rental sold with the company name still on it. Doesn't mean it doesn't happen though. LOL it's a thought!

RE: New to winter--cabover leaked!

You better park in a covered building, if you are not going to be meticulous in your waterproofing. Snow and ice will find every miniscule hole and your RV will be ruined in short order, if you don't.

RE: Full-timing in same TT for over 10 years .. anyone else ?

Go over to cheaprvliving.com. There are tons of people there who full-time in a cargo van. Some are out of necessity but many from choice and preference. It's a whole sub-culture. I can understand the appeal of a minimalist lifestyle. I have no interest in full-timing, but I would want a fairly large size travel trailer, 5th wheel, or motor home. There are certainly pros/cons to all the categories.

You haven't made a Mistake Yet. Leave that deal in the dust and it'll stay that way. This.

RE: Have you been to Yellowstone in the winter?

My sis and her hubby did it a few years ago. They had some sort of package deal (not a tour group) that included lodging, car rental, snowmobile self-guided tours, and tours on the Snowcat thing. They loved it, and had a blast. The snowmobile company rented gear to them, and someone sent them a list of other recommended clothing. Things like a balaclava, layered outerwear, insulated boots, etc. That would be something to research before you go.

RE: 12 volt battery

Yep, bring it home and keep a charger on it.
