RE: MH swaying

What chassis?

RE: F-150 3.0 diesel Pictures

Saw a bunch of Iveco trucks in Alaska and western Canada. Built up as 4x4 campers. I'd like to have one with the 3L diesel. Slap a Ford emblem on the hood, I don't care...

RE: Generator Observation

Maybe the noise from some of the very cheap open frame gensets had an impact on your observations. I ran a Honda 2000i for 15 years until it finally bit the dust. I replaced it with a 3100 Champion and I nor the wife could tell the difference in the sound coming from the Champion vrs the Honda. A few months later we went camping with a friend who has a Honda 2000 and we did a vey unscientific sound test, walking away until the generators could not be heard. It was essentially the same distance. I paid $650.00 for the Champion (Costco) which could run my AC as well has everything else, it would have cost me over $2000.00 in a Honda product for the same output and essentially the same noise. I was a true Honda believer until I made the switch. FWIW You just compared a 3k champ to a 2k Honda. The 3k Honda would be the appropriate comparison. And is much quieter.

RE: It's not just FCA

Funny stuff if it was not causing so much pain. First world consumers build global logistics to enjoy cheap imports. Then are surprised to find the supply train runs in both directions. People want their Wal-Mart, and to keep high paying jobs. Can't have it both ways.

RE: Generator Observation

There's the decibels, and then there's the nature of the sounds emitted. Some less pleasing than others, even when a db meter records them as equivalent.

RE: Was retirement for you a good or not so good choice?

I quit working when I could afford it. Financial independence is a wonderful thing. If I see some work I like I may take it. Don't need the money, so work is a hobby now.

RE: 2 RVs?

Thinking seriously about a TC for those times the MH and towed is just too much.

RE: F-150 3.0 diesel Pictures

I avoid any post with the words "boys" in it. Apparently not. But as factually accurate as most of this thread! ;)

RE: Dissolving Silicone Sealer?

Mckanica silicon remover works well, I used it for the exact same application. It's a gel, you can't pour it.

RE: F-150 3.0 diesel Pictures

Hey, all in good fun. They'll probably build it in Mexico, too. BTW, Don, whose house was VM in??? ;) I would lean Ram next year just because it's been in production longer.

RE: Does tire pressure drastically affect crosswind stability?

Have you weighed it? I have experimented with pressures from 75 to 100 and get the most stability at 80. Same tire size. Load inflation chart says 75 for my weight. Lower pressure it slows the response to steering inputs. Higher gets more reactive to road imperfections and skittish as the contact patch shrinks. YMMV

RE: Do you stand for the National Anthem?

During my military years of service, we always stood at attention and saluted when in uniform. So, as a hold-over to those years, I always stand at attention now because I don't wear that uniform anymore. For those of you that feel it necessary to sit and disrespect our flag, I have the perfect solution for you. It's called AOC ... Any Other Country! Thank you for your service. Earnestly, did you serve to preserve the freedoms catalogued in our constitution, or to create a society where diverging points of view are unacceptable? IMO this is the best country on earth. Because we don't mandate a uniform way of thinking. There are plenty of examples of societies that do that. Who really wants that for here?

RE: HELP! 1st time Class A search

That's one of my few dislikes about Newmar, crawling under the slide to open the basement storage.

RE: Selling VW TDI diesel!!!???

Depends on what YOU want. That's a smoking hot deal 5 grand in depreciation. Does that price require you to buy another VW? If so they can recoup some profit on that transaction. OTOH, you'll never be able to buy another TDI that's as efficient as this one. I would let it go, even though I love VW's. Don't trust them post warranty.

RE: First RV tow with EcoD

Met a couple towing around a 26 - 28 foot Arctic Fox through the mountains of western Canada with an EcoD. They were happy with the performance.

RE: Burned mh on Cassiar

RE: Dash Camera information and reviews

I would like to have one to capture the wildlife that pops up and then runs before you can get your camera booted up. Would appreciate any reports of users with a good hi res cam for this purpose. I tried a GoPro a couple of years ago for this and it was a glitchy unreliable piece of junk.

RE: Rock, Tire, Hole.....

Here in the NW if I stopped to examine every rock in a tread I'd never move. Gravel roads.
