RE: Etrailer.com?

http://www.trailertiresandwheels.com/ Free shipping. Be sure to ask for fresh tires. Good people to deal with and usually 2-3 days.

RE: Is Trailer Life a Recommended Read?

If you are (or wish to be) a Good Sam member, it costs nothing to subscribe... and worth every penny of that. ;) If you're not a member, it's not worth joining just to get the magazine IMO. You get a few TL magazines when joining Good Sam. After that you must pay a separate subscription fee.

RE: Max - New Dachshund Foster!

Our "Ouiser" is now 15 this month. Never a problem with her destroying or chewing anything. Trained quickly and easily by taking her outside after every drink of water or eating. Once trained she would go to the door and signal that she wanted to go outside. After I retired, she would not go outside if I was home and the wife opened the door. Had to be me. Now, if we don't watch closely and she gets out of sight she will have an occasional accident. Loved to be outside and chase lizards. Last year she hurt her back but she quickly recovered and we no longer allow her to jump up or down. Vet said she has Degenerative Disc Disease but is is a normal progression based on age. Sadly her muzzle, feet and back of her neck is white. She has had no illnesses. She is deaf and at times will just stand around like she is lost. Such a wonderful companion and had brought such joy to our lives. It will be a sad day when she is gone but we are determined that when the bad days outnumber the good we will put her to rest.

RE: Max - New Dachshund Foster!

If he is not neutered, please have it done. Please check the second photo. I think you'll find a couple of things missing - lol! True story. Friend got a rescue dog and had him spayed. Vet asked if he wanted him to perform plastic surgery to artificially add back what was removed.

RE: Big Bend

If I understand correctly the recommendations are to stay at Study Butte for the best access to Big Bend and a convenient motel for the kids. When we leave there we will be headed to Marfa, Ft. Davis, Balmorhea-we were close to there on our trips out west but did not stay there-then to Palo Duro Canyon.

RE: def

I think what lynmore was alluding to was some folks who buy DEF at truck stops fuel lanes accidentally put the DEF in the fuel tank as both the DEF and fuel fills are in same fill location behind fuel cap (at least w/ Ram and Ford). You REALLY have to NOT be paying attention to what you are doing to allow the above scenario to happen. I know I am quoting a small bit of the reply but it does happen. There have been reports by some people and even on this forum that people have mistakenly added DEF to their fuel tank. Just as people have added gasoline to their diesel tank and just as people have reported getting water in their fuel tanks from stations that supposedly filter their fuel before it hits the nozzle.

RE: Big Bend

Should have said that we will need water and electric. Sewer nice but not necessary. We will be going some time in May and yet exact date not confirmed. We want to be sure to see McDonald Observatory. We have stayed in Van Horn and Marathon on trips west and returning. I am good at planning route and places to go but the remoteness has me somewhat overwhelmed. Son, DIL and 2 grand kids want to meet us after we get there but they will need lodging.

RE: RV Carport Clearance

Do you ever want to get on top without pulling out from under the cover? Only reason I can think of. Consider length. You will need about 6' longer than existing length to cover properly. Also consider a longer RV in the future.

RE: Help? My charger killed two laptops!

Got a portable hard drive plugged into a USB? One of my lap top suddenly went blank and would not boot. Tried a hard start, removed battery and charger and then held the on/off button down, F8, etc.. Nothing worked until I removed the portable hard drive. It then, and has continued to boot normally. What ever you find. Please keep us posted.

RE: Bad diesel fuel

So much for filters at the stations. Many have disagreed with me but IF stations have filters I think they do a poor job of replacing them. I have never seen filters being replaced while fueling and neither has anyone one I asked. Flying J, Pilot, etc would need a large bank of filters to filter the fuel. Filters at the pump, IMO, wouldn't do it. The number of trucks fueling at a pump in one day would dispense more fuel that many of us would use in a life time. That's my story and I am sticking with it.:D

RE: Shock Absorber Question - Your opinion...

When shock absorbers go bad, the bushings start to show wear because they begin to take a beating. So if there are no leaks and the bushings look full and round, your shocks are still fine. And, unlike the 60s and 70s, today's shocks will last longer than 45,000 miles. OEM shocks on my 2006 were shot before 40,000 miles. When I checked the Chmnese shocks on my previous camper at 15,000 miles one was froze up and would not move. Two of the others had no dampening effect at all. None showed any leakage.

RE: Tires - GMC Sierra 2500HD - recommendation please

Check warranty on tires. Some have no mileage warranty. My Firestone OEM Transforce have 20,000 miles on them and may only get 25,000.

RE: 29 cent lantern

The old standard yellow lantern from Eveready with Eveready battery. Lantern assembled in USA. Wonder how many will buy the battery without comparing prices for a new lantern?

RE: (My) very first blow out .

Allcool-Good to hear that they took care of you. Just prior to the recall I had a busted belt on the rear of my truck. The dealer got it prorated at 50% and I paid full price for a new new on the same axle. The recall followed a month or two later on my 245/75R16's. The only tires on the recall were the two NEW tires I had replaced on my truck while traveling and not on my trailer. Local dealer did not want to help. When I called the BFG line they told me to go to the local Bridgestone/Firestone dealer.:S. You can imagine what that dealer had to say. Finally a trip back to the Michelin dealer got me 2 new tires. Guess what. They were on the recall and had to be sent back. The blowout I had were own my camper-BFG Commercial T/A's 225/75R16 that replaced the ST 225/75R15's. 5200 # axles. These tires were not on the recall list but I have since found several websites where people have had the same problem on their vehicles as I did. One tire blew out and another two had broken belts. Slight damage to my 5er. A call to the BFG line went: "I have one blowout and 2 busted belts on my T/A's" His response: "Sorry to hear about that let me try to help you. What vehicle were they on?" My response:"They were on my camper" His response:" Sorry but you placed those tires in an application they were not approved for." Then another 5 minutes listening to him tell me how dangerous I had placed myself in and blah, blah blah. From what I gather most people are satisfied with how they were treated with the recall but I believe that is because their dealers were responsive and treated them as customers rather than a bother. I am making an assumption that most of the recalls were handled by the dealer with BFG taking a back seat unless they were contacted by owners. I have read a number of posts about some contacting BFG and told their tires in trailers were under warranty but I know from my standpoint that they were not responsive to me and denied warranty. I have wondered if the BFG contacts were/are all on the same page. If you search my posts going back to last August you can find more details on my problem. A tip that may be helpful is to register your tires in the event of a recall or safety issue. None of the tires on my truck had been registered by the dealer when purchased and none of the Firestone Transforce on my camper were registered by the dealer.

RE: Shower Door Seal

Try Home Depot. I found a bottom seal for my home shower. Was located where the section for screen doors, parts for sliding glass doors, etc. It is not in the same section as shower doors.
