RE: A peeve of mine.

Yes - Yes - and Yes on Campfire time's post. Here lately I am being cut off way too close by OTR truckers. I will signal him when I think it is safe, after all I am the one being passed. I notice here lately when another 18 wheeler is in the passing lane and one truck passes me, he will cut back in with only inches to spare so as not to impede another trucker. I don't care anymore what their schedule is. Life is short enough and death is long. I really don't think these guys, OTR truckers, are being inconvenienced that much by the 4 wheelers or Rvers any more. I think most of them hate their job and simple carry a bad attitude around.

RE: A peeve of mine.

I have noticed less and less big rigs flashing thanks for indicating they are clear. So I quit doing it myself. I hate that, as it was a nice road gesture. I guess with all the cameras on these rigs now days you aren't really doing any one a favor to signal clear.

RE: A peeve of mine.

I am with Corkey 05. I get stressed with traffic behind me on a narrow road. I am always sure one nut is going to break out and pass. He could damned well take us all to the morgue. I am never in that big a hurry. Life is short death is long.

RE: 50A Idea

No. It will not raise either your amp or voltage. All you are doing is converting 50 amps down to 30. Let me suggest putting a second service drop from the available 20 outlet into your RV from it to a dedicated receptacle. Then your wife can use the additional 20 amps. Keeping in mind the 20 amp service must be on a separate breaker, most c/g's are today. I have been doing this for a number of years w/o a hitch. It's great for space heaters in cool weather also.

RE: How old and still driving????

I am 81 and feel as good and fit for driving as I ever did. No I don't push the limits like I used to. If I feel drowsy or even find myself un attentive to the highway I pull in and take a nap. I am good as gold after that. 400 miles is max for me today, it was closer to 600 in a day. I have seen guys get out of huge diesel rigs that could hardly walk when they hit the ground. They were truly disabled physically. I will never do that. You are no older than you feel. That is an Axiom of life.

RE: Portable Room AC on Sale

I have 57" tall sliding windows. (slide from side to side) not up and down. Does any one know if the exhaust spacer will accommodate windows of this design?

RE: The ideal GPS route

Tyrone and Gladys. I have tried that on mine and it will not take me to the town unless I enter a street address. I do not have any street addresses in that town. What do you do to get around this?

RE: The ideal GPS route

I am as bumfuddled as the rest of you with GPS routing. Many times I do not need its help until I am in unfamiliar territory. However until then I am amazed at the poor routing instruction I am given by Garmin. They can add many unnecessary miles to your trip if you follow them to closely.

RE: We used the generator :)

You can save your self power and at the same time keep cool by running your Gen while traveling down the road. When you stop your coach is cool and comfortable. It about breaks even on cost of operation, but I prefer it. I get more bang for my buck.

RE: Self insuring vs Roadside Assistance

The cheapest RA insurance is the one you never have to use. (Every one knew some one was going to say this)! It is true, you are hedging against big bills that you cannot possibly foresee. You are going to P---the premium away anyway on something you really didn't need. Why not be safe and secure. just sayin.

RE: would you pay $41 to enter a National Park?

In the Smokey Mountain Nat'l park it will cost you 00$ and you will almost invariably see at least one black bear. However, be prepared to drive in bumper to bumper traffic all day long.

RE: Bad camping neighbors

Suck it up and forget it. It happens to nearly every one some time. Most likely it will be a long long time before you run into this kind again. At home they probably live this way and so do their neighbors.

RE: Stuck on I81 in VA with no help from my Allstate Motor Club

Holy Smokes I just signed up with Allstate. I suppose I will regret that. I do have 3 back up providers however.

RE: Ever lost a mirror to a two lane road?

I have ticked mirrors with an oncoming truck on a narrow country road that was not supposed to have truck traffic on it. Fortunately it was just a tick and not more. Neither of us stopped. I was able to repair mine, will never know about his.

RE: Amazon Same Day Delivery

I usually opt for the standard delivery 5-7 days. I almost always get the item in two days. Only variance being if it is being drop shipped from manufacturer. I have no idea how they do it, the next quickest service is Wal-Mart online.

RE: Brand loyalty LOL or not

RV's are no different than Auto manufacturers. They make a host of different brand names; several can be made in the same factory.It is a marketing thing, visa vie Winnebago and Itasca. Your best guide is if you like what you have then stick with it. The board of directors make all the final decisions on who will be their suppliers,how many units a day must be made to turn the kind of profit they want. Some care about customer loyalty others don't, they adhere to the P.T. Barnum philosophy.

RE: Can't believe what i heard

2oldman does that mean a bricklayer can use marshmallows to lay up a wall as long as he calls himself a bricklayer? This sales man and his boss should be hauled before the courts for malicious pedaling of false and dangerous information that could easily get some one killed.
