RE: Samsung safety truck

I think it is a great idea. What could be more safe than a view of the road as the driver of the truck sees it. Save a life it may be your own.

RE: Is this something RV'ers would use?

I would not be as helpful, as it would be in the way all the time, trying to store it.

RE: Insurance for others for my RV?

Normally most insurance will cover another user of your equipment. However, check the clause that if you charge, it becomes a different animal and they generally will not pay. So I guess I am saying if you are going to charge your friend, do it under the table, no written agreements.

RE: Selling RV and flying home.... crazy?

The idea will work, I did it at PPL in Texas. However, I did not expect the rig to sell as quickly as it did. I did not fly home, I rented a car and drove home, same difference. I got more than I asked for as the bottom line. I took nothing with me, so the coach was bare empty, they ask that I leave it that way. You have a different set of circumstances and I would just donate the stuff at the destination to Salvation Army. You are going to have to make some advance arrangements to make this work.

RE: I found err proof way to break down camp area to travel

Yep I found the walk around particularly effective. My wife who is a perfectionist always readied the toad. She never in all our years of traveling made one error in getting the toad ready to roll. I have failed once to see that a jack did not retract before I pulled forward. Fortunately if was sandy soil and there was no damage, just a minor furrow which I filled back in.

RE: Renting RV out as a house/room on AirBNB?

Isn't your RV a sort of personal hide a way? Would you want some one else to be messing around with equipment that was not built to handle renters. I personally would not. I would be hard pressed to even allow visitors to live in mine while it was parked and as over night guest. It is just the way I want it and I want it to stay that way. Maybe I am overly protective.

RE: Generator Price

RE: new traffic law in tn

Man you just touched on a pet peeve of mine. Merging traffic that feels they have the right of way over you. You cannot move over, hit the brakes and you will cause a pile up, yet they dawdle out in front of you. I installed air horns to wake these idiots up. Most of the time they are actually unaware that they are about to broadside you. We have seen some very comical facial expressions when they finally get the drift. Other times it has been too close for comfort.

RE: new traffic law in tn

Indiana also has this law and it was highlighted in this morning's paper. Lets face it a lot folks know the left passing lane is usually smoother pavement due to the lack of heavy trucks pounding it to pieces. So they figure to H--- with you I am going to stay out here and enjoy a smoother ride. None of us are complaining about the guy who passes slower traffic and will get back in the right lane just as soon as he safely can. However we all know there are those that stay in the left lane out of stupidity, being obtuse, and inconsiderate.

RE: new traffic law in tn

So who gave you the right to decide for every one else what the speed limit should be in the passing lane? If you are so righteous, get out of the passing lane and drive any speed you want to. Why do you take the position that flashing lights is a ominous gesture? I just assume you are just temporarily oblivious to the conditions or what you are going. That is how road rage is created. Get over and let faster traffic proceed. If they are breaking the law, the law will eventually nail them.

RE: new traffic law in tn

I run into this scenario every day. Someone piddling along in the passing lane and no amount of people passing on the right seems to affect them at all. I have tail gated them to get their attention, most of the time with out any success. I have honked the horn at them and gestured for them to move back to the right lane. Most just stare at you in their mirror as though you are crazy, some have even slowed down. Thank God I eventually get around them, they usually just continue driving in the passing lane until they are out of sight.

RE: NOOOO! Thor buys Jayco

Don't write off the outfit that bought Fleetwood, they are moving up.

RE: NOOOO! Thor buys Jayco

Sorry to hear about this. Not because I think Thor will **** JAYCO, but because JAYCO always seemed to do a decent job and weathered out the big downturn. We need some independents to keep the waters stilled.

RE: Too old???

You are only as old as you think your are. I say go for it, just don't rush anything, take your time and enjoy it. I was well into my 70's when I hung it up and I only hung it up because I lost my navigator to Pneumonia. We would still be out there otherwise. We down sized our motor home from a 36 to a 26. Did not make that much difference except we could not pack as much junk along.

RE: What's up with RV Sales People?

You could write a book about all the reasons people abandon the RV lifestyle after they invest so much money. Some finance and find out they are under water almost immediately, some the highway travel scares them off. Many of the rigs sold even as new,develop so many problems they just cannot keep up with them. My first 60 days was spent in dealers for repairs of **** that should have been taken care of at the factory. Dealers are not super friendly after the sale. In general just realize they made a major mistake and get out while they can.

RE: What's up with RV Sales People?

PPL is honest about its mission in the RV business. They ask me what I felt I had to have for my rig. I told them, they told me they would go for more than that, as the more they get for it the more they make. I left Texas for the return trip to Indiana in a rented car. Took two days, by the time I got home there was a message on my machine that they had a buyer at a better price than I asked. It sold in less than a week. I might mention they are a great source of RV supplies and equipment, you can buy on line, I have never had a regret. NO I DO NOT IN ANY WAY WORK FOR THEM.

RE: Connecticut closing state campgrounds after the 4th of July

This IMHO is just a prelude to their getting ready to tell you they need to raise a tax of some kind. Here in Indiana, Fort Wayne area they want to add $20-$75 per year per vehicle now when you purchase your plates. We already have a wheel tax, regular tax, and our license plate fees are far above those in say Ohio. State campground site fees are comparable to private parks.

RE: What's up with RV Sales People?

I sold on consignment through PPL and was very satisfied. Contrary to one poster they sure do inspect your rig close. You have to have it Safety inspected and weighed. They found I had a slight leak in a propane tank valve and I had to authorize repairing it or they would not put it on the lot. That place even in the worst of times is loaded with people all the time. I had to make an appointment just to get a sales rep to handle my transaction. They are nice people.

RE: Leaving camper unoccupied - help

Set some sandals or depending on your location some muddy boots out on the step or on the ground near the step. Probably your best bet is just not worry about it, what do you carry insurance for.

RE: Pop-Up Camper Pops its Top on Expressway

The guy following; had he swerved to avoid the wreckage could have been deadly. It appears he took a pretty good bounce. I give him credit for hanging tight.
