RE: K&N filters

Lots of people like cool-ade. You can scientifically demonstrate that juice is better, but some will still prefer Tang. It's a free country. I stay with OEM style FWIW. I have personally witnessed dusted engines damaged while using oiled filters. I rode the same trails with the same model no harm done. Coincidence? Maybe.

RE: Security question; Alias cell phone and second email

I have several mail accounts for various purposes. I can also see the benefit of a "public" and separate private phone number. Use the public number for vendors, CG hosts or others that may need to contact you in the near term while keeping your long term phone out of their databases.

RE: Torn between full time RVing and aging parents.

In our family we are closest physically to the elders. Infirm and one with early dementia. They live in a three story home with many stairs and refuse to move. Both have fallen several times. There are great assisted living options a few miles away and they refuse to consider it. Also refuse to move in with children who have offered. Health insurer provided assistance in home until she chased them away refusing the help. Yet the guilt is liberally applied because their children won't accommodate them and move back into their neighborhood and care for them. We load up the MH and go. Sad to see but it's a common situation and we're not amenable to the guilt tripping manipulation.

RE: I'm guessing an A/B/Both battery selector sw is okay?

I am using 2 banks with even larger batteries and all the same age, just so I can top off one pair while the second is in use. And one certainty is that eventually 1 battery WILL fail. When that happens, do you want it paralleled with a good one and no switch?

RE: Do you turn off your engine at the gas station?

Holstein that is an excellent post. The starter motor is the biggest risk of ignition. Just ask anyone who knows inboard boats.

RE: Do you turn off your engine at the gas station?

Sometimes I do, other times not. Depends on the circumstances.

RE: Thinking of purchasing

Class A. More cargo capacity for full time use. Or a super C.

RE: Milk expiration dates

IF you paid attention to the OP the numbers are 12 and 1. And here in the good old USA ain't what it used to be. Every day I work with software systems printing in our office from servers housed in Central Europe. The OS is maintained by contractors in Eastern Europe. Application maintenance is done by teams of contractors in china and India.

RE: Very interesting, but NOT a Jeep killer

I had an H3 for a while. 33" tires, 4:1 transfer case, selectable center diff open or locked, selectable rear locker, 4 wheel traction control. It was a great off-roader and I wish now I'd kept it.

RE: Milk expiration dates

I have seen this happen when there is a conversion error in date standards. USA is normally MM/DD/YYYY. A lot of the world is DD/MM/YYYY. That milk probably expired first day of December.

RE: BEWARE ... Kissimmee & Orlando - toll roads

I have used a couple of new inventions that help me avoid getting on toll roads unintentionally. One is call a "map". The other one is "GPS" or something like that.

RE: How many miles for a used diesel truck?

Do your homework. Older diesels had really long lives, however since the high pressure injection systems came along it's not at all unusual to see people replacing injectors before 200k, even in well maintained trucks.

RE: Very interesting, but NOT a Jeep killer

Too fat and too wide. But then so are current jeeps.

RE: Furnace burner cycling on & off

Sounds to me like you have an air restriction. Could be in the discharge or the return. Not enough air flow > higher temperature in the heat exchanger > burner cycling on the high temperature limit control. Kinked ductwork maybe?

RE: Looking for your suggestions

I have carried bikes in the shortest of short beds. May need to go diagonal and/or leave the tailgate down. I would go for a small 4x4 like a Colorado, then you have that as an off-road option in addition to the DR. I carry a DRZ-400 at times myself.

RE: I have a TOW VEHICLE headache.

: I'll take any advice/opinions you can dish out. Or not... In a public forum what you get is not always what you expect. I don't see anything out of line with posters sharing opinions about a decision making process that results in someone owning an RV they can't move, and purchased in advance of understanding the equipment required to move it. It's a good cautionary tale. Lots of us learn here by reading about the experiences of others, so this post has more beneficiaries than just the OP. I doubt very many seasoned RV'rs would recommend the decision sequence followed here as one to emulate.

RE: do gassers offer anything like the DP engine brake

Dan, that's a good idea, but then you're going to have to convince them that HP means more than torque. Never. Gonna. Happen. :B

RE: Mind boggled...

For the amount you want to spend, you will not get a reliable truck and camper, you would only be able to get a project to do repairs on most likely. Second option I would rather tow a Tab with a Subaru than 2wd B or C if what you're looking for is relaxed driving in the snow. BUT- if you stick to wanting to boondock and take winter showers, probably the truck camper -and a well insulated quality one- is your only option listed. Very few travel trailers, B, or C units will have insulated and heated tanks. I believe you will have to compromise on your budget or your wants.

RE: do gassers offer anything like the DP engine brake

redguard just sent me this as a PM in reference to my post where I said that gasser RV's have no problems in the mountains with either the climb or the descent. "you obviously have not driven a larger A gasser loaded in the rockies etc as this statement is pure bunk simply put UNTRUE " I'll let those of you that have driven their gassers in the mountains respond. I have never had a problem with my Monaco gas coach in the Rockies, but I also never had a problem with the diesel coaches I've owned in the mountains. Apparently he wanted to call me liar in private. Oh well! :B As the above posts already seem to indicate, gas RV's do fine in the mountains. If central Colorado counts we were there not long ago. No problem.
