RE: Toyo trailer tires!!

A friend of mine has had 700/15 on his horse trailer for some time, and has been very happy with them.

RE: How to spend money in Canada

We used credit card. Monetary exchanges are all taken care of. We used very little cash. When you come back home exchange your Canadian money near or at the border. We found it to be difficult at home. Mike

RE: Washing /waxing

Just had my wife wash and wax the 5er with Mcquires cleaner wax 50 and it only took her two days to do the job. She is getting older and slowing down some but it is important for men to remember that, as women grow older, it becomes harder for them to maintain the same quality of trailer maintenance as when they were younger. When you notice this, try not to yell at them. Some are overly sensitive, and there’s nothing worse than an oversensitive woman. She had to take a break when she was only half-finished washing and waxing the 5th Wheel. I tried not to make a scene. I’m a fair man. I tell her to fix herself a nice, big, cold glass of freshly squeezed lemonade and just sit for a while. And, as long as she is making one for herself, she may as well make one for me, too. I know that I probably look like a saint in the way I support her. I’m not saying that showing this much consideration is easy. Many men will find it difficult. Some will find it impossible! Nobody knows better than I do how frustrating women get as they get older. However, guys, even if you just use a little more tact and less criticism of your aging girlfriend or wife because of this post, I will consider that writing it was well worthwhile. That sounds like the way my wife got the job done. It only took me a week to get out of the hospital, and after that I decided to help by holding the hose. She seems a lot happier now:B Mike

RE: Washing /waxing

Local High School cheerleaders held a fund raiser in an old K-Mart parking lot and wanted to charge me $20 to wash my rig. They did such a good job I paid them $40.00. I bet they were cute too. Mike

RE: CB radios

Depends on the terrain, hilly, 1-3 miles, flat 5 miles or better, depending on the setup also. Mike

RE: CB radio

In a lot of areas that I go hunting and camping, you will find that these fancy smart phones are not so smart, and the CB works well to keep track of others in your party. Mike

RE: hero cat saves boy from dog attack

Who filmed this, and why didn't they try to help? Also, why did the mother leave with the child still out there? Mike

RE: Wiring - Solar Panel - Solar Controller - Converter

You can just hook your wires from the controller to the battery, and fuse the pos wire close to the battery. The controller and the converter work independently of each other. Mike

RE: 1999 Tioga 24' V-10

He is a home inspector by trade, so when he gets there, he will go over it well. I appreciate any replies. Has anyone had one? Mike

1999 Tioga 24' V-10

I have a friend looking at a used 1999 Tioga 24D Class C 4WD motor home that looks to be in great condition with other options, and only 20,000 miles on it. It has been kept under cover, and with a cloth cover on it also. On the unit it says the 4WD is by Gregory. Does anyone have any information about these outfits, how reliable they are? Thanks. Mike

RE: telescopic ladders

I have one that I like very much for the small storage area that it takes, but I did have problems with it once. In very cold and snowy conditions I was using it to get on my roof, and one of the buttons to extend the sections from the one below didn't get all the way engaged, and when I got to the top, it let go, breaking one of the button latches and nearly dropping me 10 feet. I watch to make sure everything is well seated before I climb now. Mike

RE: Pop-ups when on the Forum

I have had that problem a couple of times, if you are using IE, look at the bottom of the pop up and get the name of the originator, go into tools at the top of the page, in the drop down go to manage ad ons, on the left hit tool bars and extensions, let it load, go down the list until you find the culprit, click to highlight, go to the bottom and click disable. it may take awhile, you may have to restart, but that usually takes care of it.

RE: CB Radio install in a 2500 Dodge

The only problem that I have had with mine, is you have to keep the attachments to the antenna from getting corroded from the elements over time. Three to five miles is about tops with mine. Mike

RE: The Hill

When we went on it, at the bottom, my wife got out and kissed the ground. I didn't see any problem. Mike

RE: Pulled over, what's the problem Officer

I can't see, is there a boat on behind the fifth wheel? I mean you gotta get her done. Mike

RE: Have you ever felt threatened while camping?

No, but as someone else on here has said before, I haven't had a fire either, but I still have a fire extinguisher. I like being prepared. Mike

RE: What happened to camping/RVing?

I'm a little older, but I still feel that a great camping trip is spending several days never seeing another human. It makes for a great nature experience. Mike
