RE: Craigs List Responders

Instead of using CL... Search out some of the Street Rod clubs in your area and start from there. I contacted one here where they were able to get me hooked up with a current appraisal, inspection and where to list it...

RE: Jeff Announces Retirement After 2015 Season

Can't argue with that seeing Chase Elliot's ties with Hendrick... Kyle's talent reminds me of a young Jeff Gordon.

RE: Jeff Announces Retirement After 2015 Season

Seems like last week I was at the 1993 Daytona 500 where the 24 had a yellow stripe on the back bumper... :C Kyle Larson would be the perfect fit into that seat! :)

RE: passing signal

When anyone overtaking pulls up close behind me I assume they are looking to pass. I simply maintain my speed and when it becomes safe for them to make their pass I move slightly to the right (without vacating my lane). This gives them a hint that it is time to make their move and a much improved view of what is coming down the road. The rest is up to them. X2 The most I'll do is move over to the right side of the lane so you can see past me... The rest is up to you!

RE: Charlotte Motor Speedway

We stayed at Ver-El RV Park across the Blvd from the main entrance. Five minute walk from camper to our seats near the S/F line...

Don't want to hijack thread, but what does bad DEF act like? A Poor DEF Quality message appears in the DIC. If it's not corrected within I believe it's 200 miles the truck will start speed limiting itself eventually to limp mode (4 mph). Bad NOX sensors will cause that message to appear too.

RE: Donna Douglas Beverly Hillbillies passes on

That leaves Max Baer Jr as the last surviving member of the cast. RIP Donna!

RE: Montana Owners Club Forum

What you're mostly gonna get on MOC is how much they love their Montana. Nothing wrong with that as they wouldn't own one if they didn't like them. Odd, once I finally made it to the board, post purchase, it scared the heck out of me. I thought my Montana was going to fall apart for the first month or so. Thought I made the worst purchase of my life. People were actually talking about problems with their rigs and with the manufacturer. What I was referring to was the threads where someone new asks "I'm looking at buying a Montana?" There will be numerous responses on how much they love their Montana! :D I wasn't trying to be negative... if he asks the same question about brand X at a brand X forum he'll get the same responses. It's only natural they are a bit biased... Kinda like asking on a Harley forum if I should buy a Harley or a Goldwing... Well maybe not... that would be more extreme bias. :D

RE: Montana Owners Club Forum

What you're mostly gonna get on MOC is how much they love their Montana. Nothing wrong with that as they wouldn't own one if they didn't like them. I recently traded in a HC 343RL and could give you some insight. We loved the layout and build quality for the most part was no better or worse than comparable fifth wheels. Keystone during the warranty period was great to work with. Front cap and decals faded/peeled. I saw (MOC members) that Keystone was covering the decals after warranty but they wouldn't in my case. Largest reason I traded the trailer was that it only had 5200 lb axles on it. On the surface with a 12,500 GVWR it would have been ok but the layout of the trailer with 3 slides, kitchen, water heater, bathroom all on the left side... The left side of the trailer was overloaded. The left springs flattened out after a year where I replaced them with heavier springs but they flattened out as well. The trailer had a noticeable lean to it when on level ground.

RE: Tim Hortons comes to town..

Tims is the equivalent of Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts and Krispy Kreem combined up in Canada. Its the most popular chain there with the most locations. Doesn't compare to any of those! Timmy's coffee is far better! :) My only complaint is the lineups are always too long! :D

RE: Got Caught By a Red Light Camera?

What would be the feasibility of having wifi devices in signal boxes to tell drivers with receivers how long that green is going to be? It would be a huge help to truckers, and those of us who tow heavy rigs. I doubt the amber is timed to how long it takes a big rig to stop. What it tells me is that the light is about to change so I better speed up to make the light! Where I live there is an ongoing controversy with some of our Don't Walk signals also have a countdown timer on them to tell the pedestrian how much time they have until the light changes. Problem is that the motorist approaching the intersection also sees them and often speeds up if the time is low.

RE: Pop A Lock

Time will tell, of course, how reliable the technology is, but for the time being, it strikes me as being one of those innovations we shoulda had forever, and everybody ought to be able to use in the future. Harley Davidson has been using this for quite a few years. Key fob has to be within about 10 feet of the bike before it will start. Works great!

RE: Most over rated attractions

A trip to Charlotte NC... Along with the two weeks we camped out at the Speedway for NASCAR we thoroughly enjoyed touring around the countryside...

RE: Most over rated attractions

I've heard about Paris being an awful place to visit for years so that's nothing new. It's all subjective. I spent a month in Paris and had a fantastic time! There is so much history in that city that you could spend six months there and still not see it all.

RE: faded cap

I used 3M Marine Cleaner and Wax on the cap of my grey Montana High Country... CLICK It with a power buffer restored the shine immensely...

RE: Parking in Calgary

X2 on the Bass Pro shop.. I've seen many RV's parked there. There is also a vacant parking area that some RV's have parked just off the SE corner of their parking lot. I don't know of any place downtown that you can safely park.

RE: attn: Weight Police

Ok, here is a topic to discuss... I have a 2011 f250 crew cab lariat, 6.7l diesel, factory e rated michilens, rated at 3750# per tire at 80 psi cold. According to ford tow guide, the truck will tow a 14,500 5th, although the way ford "dashes out" the tow guide it is certainly convoluted at best. Now, though it states a 14,5k rating, my PAYLOAD rating maxes at 2049 lbs. Now, getting past the incredibly disappointing bs of that low number, these two numbers simply don't jive. Explain please. And how is the tire rating at 2049 for payload when side walls read 3750 per?? Is it because the manufacturer recommends running at 65 instead of 80? Are you sure the weight rating on the tire says 3750? My E rated Michelins are rated for 3042 single and 2778 per tire dual wheel. There's more to it than tire capacity when they determined the GVWR of your truck... Suspension, brakes, drive train etc. The 2010 2500HD Duramax I recently sold had a GVWR of 9200 lbs and empty weight of around 7200 which left me with a 2000 lb payload for hitch, fuel, cargo and pin weight. The 5er I had at the time had a loaded weight of about 13,000... With the hitch, fuel, passengers and pin weight the truck alone scaled @ 10,500 lbs... Under by the towing capacity but I was over the GVWR of the truck by 1,300 lbs. Yes the truck could pull a 14,500 lb trailer but it will be limited by the pin weight in the bed of the truck that will put it over it's GVWR.

RE: Kevin Harvick wins Sprint Cup championship !

Sure was in the case of the 48 team. He was lucky to make it past the first round! I was referring to his past success... I think some are saying that perhaps the Jimmie/Chad relationship has run its course. But that's a pipe dream on my part... :D

RE: Kevin Harvick wins Sprint Cup championship !

Ask Jimmie Johnson what was the most important element that explains all his wins. Two elements... Bottomless Hendrick pockets combined with the best and most arrogant crew chief in the business. For the record Jimmie is a good driver... He wouldn't be in the seat if he wasn't! However... IMO... Jimmie's success were mostly because of Chad's brilliant calls. How many times has Jimmie made his way to the front because Chad made the right calls and got him there thru pit strategy? I'm willing to bet when Jimmie and Chad part ways that you'll see Jimmie will then become just another driver. Especially if Jimmie leaves Hendrick.
