RE: A shoe by any other name

I'm guessing it wasn't this forum. No "Captcha's" here.

RE: Deh Cho Route / AB-NT-BC

Bugs will be gone in Oct, but the snow flakes may make an appearance. Most of the roadside campgrounds will be closed, with the gates up. Restaurants and motels will still let you park in their lots, but most of the dump locations will be closed, and often gated. Fresh water will often be available from the same hotel and restaurants, for a fee (usually). Overnight temps can range from quite chilly, to bloody cold. Depends on time of year, and year to year variations.

RE: Brake light seen from cab

Hopefully a very low amp draw bulb, or LED... You don't want to reduce the available power going to the brake magnets. (Or use a relay) The brake light wires and the brake controller output are separate runs. No danger of this happening.

RE: Deh Cho Route / AB-NT-BC

No problem with the ferry. Transport trucks use it, too. Be ready for dust, or CaCl laced mud if raining. Lots of wide open places, including in towns, for overnighting. No idea about dump stations, but plan on being on tanks until further south, and warmer temps. Frost comes early, and swiftly up here.

RE: Rhino or Line-X for 5er skirting

The coloured products aren't as prone to fading as the basic black.

RE: Interesting "Toyhauler"

Crawler Hauler, often built with a truck camper instead of a full-size trailer.

RE: lug pattern

Geeze, Louise people. It's not like trailer axles went metric, or anything. 8 lug are 8x6.5".

RE: Nash 27-5l 50 amp ready?

Doesn't sound like it.

RE: Tighten Those Wiring Bolts in Hot Weather

Said it before, probably not done saying it, but, Belleville washers.

RE: Info On Costco Visa Card

So on our Alaska trip we get to Grande Prairie AB. Go to Costco for the really good Diesel fuel price at one of the few Costco's with diesel fuel. . When I get to Costco gas station they will not take US Costco Visa, not the store either. No cash either at pump. Only master charge. I was led to believe on this forum that Visa, not Master Charge was the prevalent card in Canada? Costco savings in Grande Prairie are highly over-rated. The same price is available at any of the grocery stores with fuel stations in town. They all price match each other, with additional savings available for use in-store. The "No-Frills store on the south side of town has a tighter lot for pulling a trailer around in, where-as the south side Safeway has the better lot of this chains lots. The Superstore on the north end has probably the most open lot of all the grocery/fuel lots.

RE: Yukon Road Conditions

Assuming everyone's on FaceBook. 511 is nearly universal for road consitions.

RE: Fort Wayne to Denver

Doesn't seem like either route would be too technically challenging. Perhaps better suited to "Roads & Routes" section?

RE: Mor Ryde Step Above

Guessing it's these. Not really a fan of having to store wet or muddy steps inside, but it might be just me.

RE: Beverage trailer conversion

Local ones have the racking that supports the cases of bottles as an integral spine to support the weight. Eats up a lot of internal room, and cuts the trailer in half length-wise.

RE: Broken Gray discharge pipe

Black is ABS. Home Depot, Lowes, Ace, etc. Uses yellow glue and I prefer to use a primer first.

RE: AZ 3 axles or less fuel pumps

In Arizona, there is a different tax charged for light duty vehicles than heavies. The sticker is on every pump in the state, in an effort to stop road tractors from using lower tax fuel. The trailer axles are not counted, only the power unit. If you have a retired highway tractor with rear tandems for personal use, and use the local Fry's fuel pumps, you DO run the risk of being offered the opportunity to explain to a judge why you need lower tax fuel. It's a low risk, but it is there.

RE: Solar Expert Component Review Requested

Also not a fan of the glued down bendable panels. Way too expensive on a per watt basis, too fragile for extended use. The covering tends to haze, cutting production further. Heat also cuts production, so stuck to the roof yields a hotter panel than one elevated above it.
