RE: Dexter EZ Flex upgrade improve towing

RE: San Antonio east or south toward Florida

I mention the access road for Beltway 8 as some of the tollway you need a special pass to use the tollway as there are no toll booths for collecting cash. This is true on the North Belt but if they see a 1 time out of state plate they will ignore it. Do it 3 or 4 times in a short period and you will get a nastygram from them. The Beltway charges by the axle on the toll as well. That can be an expensive bypass. This spring I got on Beltway 8 by mistake. Decided to stay on it because the side roads had stop sign. I received a bill through the mail. I do not have the Toll Pass but I do have Texas license.

RE: Yesterday's College Football Games!

Sounds like a coach in Alabama. Demanded this, demanded that and got everything he wanted including the biggest paycheck in college football. If he didn't receive it quickly enough he became a whiner. I will give him credit for being an outstanding coach and recruiter but not much else.

RE: Yosemite

BK and papa-Just received a message from wife's cousin. They are currently south of Fresno for a few days and decided to go to Las Vegas. I will suggest taking I-15 to Las Vegas and then 93 to Kingman. This should take them over Hoover Dam. How is Highway 93 to Kingman? They are asking about must see's but I haven't been that way. BK-You said " I assume this late in the year they are going to the south rim." Can you elaborate?

Wife's cousin called. Said they were at Yosemite and looking for a route to the Grand Canyon. They have a Ram 2500 and pulling and Airstream-guessing between 26-30 feet.

RE: Replacing shocks on 2500HD, CC

I went with the plain old Monroe's. Made a world of difference and not as pricey as the other. Found that my shocks were gone between 25000-30000 miles. I bet yours are worn out.

RE: Social Security question/ help please if you know

Another thing to remember is the age you stop working. You can stop working at a different time than you start receiving SS. It will effect your final calculations. Please explain further what you mean. The Primary Insurance Amount is based on the year you turn 62, and does not depend on when you stop working. Calculations are based on the highest 35 years of employment. Go to the SS site and use their calculator. The year you stop working DOES affect the amount you get at 62 or later. If I retire from my work at 55 (earliest I'm eligible), but don't take SS until 67, I will get about $600 less per month than if I continue to work until 67 and take starting that year. I believe that there is a "max input" that you have to put into the system before the stop work date no longer affects your benefits - but I'm not positive. The comment from toedtows is what happened to me. No longer able to handle the stress from my job my doctor told me to retire. Did so at 57. For 6 years I added nothing to S.S. before I started drawing so my S.S. was lower (forever) . The final years are considered the highest earning and if you retire before 62 you loose that contribution.

Did I miss it or has anyone not posted about the 850,000 Ford vehicle recall?

RE: Yesterday's College Football Games!

Not sure what I was watching yesterday but it was supposed to be LSU. Two quick interceptions and a fumble had fans clamoring for the backup Q.B. Les Miles finally made the change to Harris who quickly began the scoring run. Harris closed the game last week with Mississippi State but couldn't quite win it for LSU. I am thinking that if Les Miles had not gone for two 2-point conversion but kicked extra points he may have saved 30-45 seconds. That may have been enough time to get into field goal range for a tie. I'm thinking Jennings will start again next week,:S Did anyone see the two cheap shots Dillon Day from Mississippi State? I can't believe that the officials could not have seen at least one of them. He had issues with cheap shots last year as well. His letter to the fans said he was just hustling to the ball and could not stop in time. He was suspended for one game.

RE: I just thought this was interesting........

Disregarding the merits of the claim, this spread out over the entire population, is less than $2 each. On the other hand, we have a pending claim from our teachers that could amount to $1000 each! Help me with a little math. If I understand you correctly that would mean 227 million people receiving the settlement.?

RE: Walmart Straight Talk Phone Plan

Also depends on whether it's GSM or CDMA. I think the CDMA uses Verizon and GSM AT&T I think you may be correct. Wife and I have Straight Talk and when I dial a number that is not longer in service I get a recording that says that it is Verizon.

RE: ?

If everyone only shopped on the basis of price, Ford might sell an even higher percentage of the market. Does that make them better or just cheaper? I always look at things this way, Marlin sells more rifles than Weatherby. Which is "better"? Ain't seen a Ford yet that I could buy that beat the pricing on Chevrolet or Dodge.

RE: Can't find Calgon powder

Tried the Geo Method and Calgon when we first started RVing. Went to the watera nd flush method. Works for us just as well and my sensors always work. Dump a little Thetford with 2-3 gallons of water after last rinse and before heading home. We still when heading home and NO issues or smell while in storage.

RE: Unable to get sanibel fixed under warranty?

The OP doesn't say what they think should be fixed under warranty. We don't know what his complaint is so how do we know if it should be fixed by the dealer or not. Would think that a 2 year warranty would cover anything that is broke. We still don't know what his problem is. If his dog ate his coach it is not covered under warranty. IMO, a reasonable person would not expect a manufacturer to repair/replace a sofa eaten by a dog but not all people are reasonable. I would like for the OP to detail his issues.

RE: Unable to get sanibel fixed under warranty?

Made by Forest River. Although my rig has been issue free except for some slight damage to the Darco wrap and I can't speak for all of the Forest River products but the Prime Time branch has issues with the bottom of the slides. They use a Darco wrap and it becomes damaged leading to water intrusions. There is a post almost 2 years old discussing the issue and Prime Time has failed to respond to anyone who has posted. Some have taken it upon themselves to find and implement a solution. There are also several reports of issues with frame flex and issues. As I read more of the other subjects posted it seems to me that Prime Time is becoming less and less responsive to members. Go to the Forest River website and join the Sanibel forum. Perhaps, but not likely, that you may get some help there. Good Luck.

RE: Wash for 5er

If it is being delivered by dealer it is his responsibility to clean.

RE: Watching...

Recently there were several posts on the loudest football stadium and best tailgating. This is how it is done in Baton Rouge. Maybe someone can make this a clickable link. http://www.foxsports.com/college-football/story/lsu-tigers-beer-coffin-sec-tailgating-092014
