RE: Appalachian Mountain WIldfires

Aircraft including helicopters or 747s are not going to put out a large fire. They will help with hotspots and small flare ups but that is about it. As 10forty2 said "only heavy rain or snow works on large fires". For example, according to the USGS Water Science School, one inch of rain on one square mile equals 17.38 million gallons of water. At 20,000 gallons per 747 I don't think there are enough 747s to matter much. Thanks Ron for the update on the 747 tanker! fpresto I agree with your post, but that tanker with Calgum or Joy soap mixed in the load can save a house!

RE: Appalachian Mountain WIldfires

I just looked it up the 747 aerial tanker drops 20,500 gallons from 500' in one drop! Evergreen is the air drop Company!

RE: Appalachian Mountain WIldfires

Sorry to hear about those fires! The State or Feds ought to get ahold of that 747 water retardant drop tanker they have out west here to help smother those fires.

RE: Heads Up

I was really disappointed in a road trip that I made the other day! I went to Port Townsend to eat at Dos Okies BBQ and they were shut down. They have been gone for 3-4 years now. Went there number of times and it was the best Q this side of Texas. I still have my "Jeet Yet" t-shirt and only wear it on special occasions. Thanks Don, like John said it's not a good feeling to lose a good restaurant! By the way Don your RV posted in your member profile looks like it would be awful rough riding!

Heads Up

I was really disappointed in a road trip that I made the other day! I went to Port Townsend to eat at Dos Okies BBQ and they were shut down. It's my understanding that Ron and Larry both retired! I'm very grateful to RV.Net poster KIX from Florida who first informed me about Dos Okies. KIX told me he loved BBQ so much that he went to all the famous BBQ places all thru the U.S. and Dos Okies was the best he ever ate at. Ron and Larry started out BBQing at a very young age in Oklahoma and moved to WA. State until they retired. The used the wood smoke method BBQing with real wood. Lots of military personal know of Ron and Larry from the military ships that would unload ammo at Indian Island, WA. from there ships before going to there Port. The Federal Government (U.S. Navy) would hire Ron and Larry to put on a BBQ for the returning ships crew. Happy Retirement Ron & Larry and a saying on there T-Shirts was "Did you Jeet Yet"

RE: Am I the only one here?

Larry, since we both own Winnebago products, I hope you don't have any trouble getting parts in December! If the dealer doesn't have the part say mid December you will have to wait until the new year to get that part. Winnebago shuts there plant down and they make most of there own parts. Been there and done that!

RE: Defective Ultra Leather on Flexsteel Furniture

We have a Class A 2011 Fleetwood Bounder. We purchased RV in 2013 and at that time the furniture was fine. There was some cracking and peeling of the leather in the drivers chair and back of the couch in 2015. This year all of the furniture has excessive cracking and peeling of the Ultra Leather. I contracted Lazydays upholstery department and they indicated that they have seen this problem before because of defective leather being used by the manufacturer of the furniture. I sent pictures to them and they sent me the quote of $2000 to reupholster the driver and passenger chairs and couch. They recommended I buy a new recliner because it would be cheaper than reupholstering it. I contacted Fleetwood and they declined to do anything about this problem because it was to far out of warranty. Has anyone else had this problem and, if so, what was the outcome? Even though it's past warranty and no fault on your part Fleetwood should stand behind there product! This is poor customer service! When I owned a Fleetwood I had a problem with my couch (it was not leather) and they fixed it. What Fleetwood is doing to you could make the difference of getting a return customer!

RE: refrigerator does not cool while driving

I believe nowadays most RV fridges are 2-way. That means they only run off propane or electrical. If you are shutting off the propane when you drive, then the fridge has nothing to run on. Any fridge that I ever owned is or was a 2 way!

RE: Gas tank replacement/upgrade

I had my tank removed by a Winnebago Dealership several years ago. The Dealership removed the fuel tank bands, used a transmission jack to lower the tank then siphoned out the fuel to inspect the tank.

RE: Engine Choice

Tug, I've owned both engines in RV's I switched to Chevy after my V-10 Triton motor started spitting out spark plugs. Never had any trouble with my Chevy engine!

RE: Gurgling sound in propane tank

^^^Right. The furnace pulls more propane than any other appliance. Thanks for the info I wasn't aware of that.

RE: Best route to Boulder Co. from Tacoma Wa.

First, do not carry chains and do not go anywhere chains would be required. I don't give a ship about what law says I have to have on board. I am not moving over any road that requires them! Patience Grasshopper! The road will be clear in the next day or so. With that in mind and good weather in front of you, you can take any route you please. Obviously, you want to stay on the Interstate highways as they are maintained 24/7/365 if humanly possible. If it were me (and it's not) "and the weather looked great" I would take the shortest Interstate only Google Maps route available with would be I-5 S to Portland and I-84 E yada, yada, I-80 to I-25 and home. I agree with Bill and the route he selected.The road crews are very good about keeping the Hwys. open. The only time you can't drive thru is when the weather is really nasty and you don't want to be driving then anyway.
