RE: How many of you do this?

RE: Illegal GPS mounting

Have you ever wondered how the police have time to look at the road while driving. The inside of the average patrol car looks like the control room of an airport or a TV station. Secondly I see as many cops on cell phones while driving than I do any one else on the streets and highways.

RE: Toad left in park

I agree being old had nothing to do with this problem. Age brings on knowledge and experience. The stupid mistakes are usually made by those that just will never pay attention to the almighty details.

RE: Cadillac Motorhome

These Cadillac truck campers in the late 60's and early 70's were quite common. Most were built on the hearse frame. Superior had a large factory outside of Lima Ohio, and is no longer in business. They were of course primarily into school bus bodies and assembly.

RE: Prius Camper

The Prius concept is interesting. Wish they had translated it, so one could see what they are selling.

RE: disconnect, hide electrical cord when overnite at Walmart?

If it makes you feel better to unhook the power cord, do it. I would suggest just pulling from tow vehicle and zip tying to RV pulling apparatus. Do it in such a way that you will not forget to re-hook in the morning. I have heard of fools detaching tow bars and 5th wheel pins over the 50 years I have Rv'd. You will never fix stupid. So far I have never heard of any one having a serious problem with it. Now not being able to unhook in the event of fire due to keyed locks is a whole different problem. I have personally seen those charred remains.

RE: Avion -> Boat

I am that way with any of Alaskan shows. Can't not watch them, especially the series on Alaskan State Troopers. Now there is one dedicated bunch.

I have 4 Garmins and none of them are accurate all the time. Be sure you have a good paper map as a back up. Sometimes I am dumbfounded at the errors they display. For instance I can be a mile from my HOME and it will tell me to turn the wrong way at the last stop light.

RE: 10 year rule, I figured it out

What in the world could possibly be discriminatory about a 10 old rig if it is kept (well maintained). It just makes good sense to keep a rig as long as you like it and it serves you well. It is in fact the only way you will ever get your investment back.

RE: Storage Shelter Etiquette

If it is not on your property leave it alone. You have no right to remove it! You have no idea what the owner of the property the item is on may eventually want to do with the items. Stuff that is left on a camp site by some one after leaving is a little different. However, if they come back to retrieve the stuff give it up, it is still theirs.

RE: Zippo Lighter Fluid

I don't see what it would hurt, unless there is something in the lighter fluid that would foul your spark plug. I can imagine they are the same thing really.

RE: Older does not always mean wiser so.......

I am with all the other posters. There is no WIN in it for you. It would take a long time to get a ROI. By that time they will have raised the maintenance fees to the point you will never be free camping.

RE: Would this bother you?

The power cord situation could be one whereby he is using two outlets to double his incoming power. I use a 30a and a 20a on my motor home going to a dedicated second box. This way we can use heaters, etc and still have a full 30a in the coach. My strong advice is do not ever confront the perp yourself. Even if you fear damage might occur, if it does, it would not be to difficult for an insurance inspector to find out. The management has his name and lots of information on the perp.

RE: Would this bother you?

I agree if he hasn't brought the slide back in by your next visit or one week which ever is sooner, I would speak to management about it. No need for you to get personally involved. You paid your fee. It is possible I suppose that he cleaned the carpet and left the slides out for drying purposes, but that does not explain the power cord.

RE: 5er without 5th wheel or pick-up???

I put a ball hitch on the front of my motor home so I could launch my boat with it. Beats the heck out of wandering what is going on back there.

RE: Poor, poor, pitiful me

I agree with 100% of the above responses. You only have one trip through this life and you best make the most of it. When you are gone these kids will all have the same things going on with out you. DO IT!

RE: Tragedy leads to no camping at Cottonwood, AZ Walmart

Can't imagine why the local vagrancy laws did not apply to this squatter, much sooner.

Can't do anything but get better now.

RE: Towing at night in hot weather

I have hooked up test gauges to my system to double check the on board gauges. I was really surprised by the difference in water temp and the oil pressure between the test gauges and the on board gauges. On board were showing normal range, test gauges showed substantial difference on the negative side.
