RE: 40 years after his death, Elvis Presley is still the King

Funny: I hated his music way back then and thought it was the down fall of decent music. Now when I hear it, it seems not too bad compared to the screaming they throw at us in the stores! Jack L

RE: What Do You do?

I would never travel with a full water tank! that is way too much weight to haul. We just travel with a few gallons of spring water bought at the supermarket and replenish as necessary. We always overnight at a camp ground. Call ahead and get a full hook up Most of them are around 29 bucks a night and it is well worth it for the hook up Jack L

RE: People who let their dogs bark constantly...

It is the ignorant non considerate dog owners who let their dog(s) bark all the time. Unfortunately you'll never change them. In the RV park where we snow bird, if they are barking after quiet hours, they get a warning, and then if it continues they are kicked out Jack L

RE: Fifth wheel or travel trailer?

we are on our third travel trailer and each one has been larger then the previous one. We like the TT mainly since we then can have a camper top for the pickup truck which allows for us to carry our tandem canoe and our two kayaks on it's roof and all kinds of our yak packing gear, our two mountain bikes and luggage inside. With a fifth wheel, we couldn't do that Jack L

RE: Electric log splitter

Thanks so much for all your advice and talking me into buying the electric splitter. The 5 ton splitter was most recommended here so that's the one 1 bought for 329.00 CAD. at Home Depot I have a 19 foot long 5 foot high row of split wood so far with only a sore arse from sitting on my stool sore thumb on one hand, sore finger on the other as a thumb and finger from each hand is required to operate it. I have had no troubles with it so and happy with how it works. https://vrqeqa.bn1303.livefilestore.com/y4mfkaTQt7y6D3BfzsJF0CxtbsapfZpvU_ofkdpLEI5mtnCvS1CO8RosRKZF99YXJ0PoX89b20lGFoZTqcanTLDbznMHeWp4W0lUKQAXqUaH7Sspf4kOh2vCZyEW2UBKrz65YPHxoD3-U9cO9HGfYMmkplA3WVzabD2Ll5hA0FBEYir4Hgl_hlROPdYMJEbhsGvbPNjOqoOKqcqoghozqEyeQ?width=660&height=372&cropmode=none That looks great ! But how on earth did you pick up that chunk and get it on the splitter ? My gas one has two positions. One like that and then it can stand up so you can just roll the logs on up right What amazes me is how mine can go break right through 2 and 3" knots Jack L

RE: Electric log splitter

I have heated with wood and cut and split my own all my life also I have always used a "easewing wedge" with a sledge hammer. I vowed that the day I couldn't split any more by hand would be the day I stopped heating with wood, since the splitting gave me a great upper body work out. Last year for my 80th birthday, my kids chipped in and bought me a 22 ton gas log splitter. I almost told them to take it back, but I didn't want to hurt their feelings so kept it. About a month went by and I decided to try it out just see how it works. I was amazed at how well it worked. it can split a pile in and hour that it would take me all day to split. Needless to say I no longer split by hand and have gone back on my word. I'll get my upper body work out by training and racing our canoe now! Jack L

RE: Is better to have cash or trade in?

CL is terrible for selling big ticket items. RV trader and Flea-Bay is better. Less tire kickers and low ballers. People use CL for a fishing expedition. Not so from my standpoint. I have bought and sold many items on Craigs list. With my travel trailer; I sold it two weeks after I posted it. I asked $8,000, expecting to sell it for 7 and sold it for $7,800 I always put in my posts: "Respond with your name and telephone number or I won't reply back" Jack L

Lubricating the pop up raising system ?

We bought a 2003 small Coleman Pop up, and every time I raise the roof, I get aerobic turning the crank. Is there any way to lubricate the system to make it easier ? Jack L

RE: Wouldn't it be nice if

That is one of the many reasons we bought our own site in a private campground. Jack L

RE: Is better to have cash or trade in?

From our experience when we bought our new 40 footer last year it was much better paying cash than financing. It gave us the advantage to walk out the door when we negotiated. We ended up paying 30 percent less than their first price. Then I sold our older trailer on Craigs list JackL

RE: Is my roof bowed or my frame bent?

My roof is sagging in the middle. I found this fix which might work for me. http://www.gonecamping.net/stories/coleman_roof_fix.html I'll have to see improvise to find out the dimensions of the support block. I've also got some hairline cracks. I've read about the bed liner solution. Maybe I can find a company that applies bed liners who would be willing to apply the material to my pup. On the "hairline cracks": I would use West Systems G-Flex epoxy if it was mine. It will adhere to any material. I can't help you on the roof, since my coleman has an aluminum top Jack L

RE: Insurance for T.T.

No one would insure our new trailer and then my brother in law told me that Progressive insured his power boat and he had a couple of claims that they paid with no hassle,so we contacted them on line, and they immediately insured ours for the total cost and also gave us hurricane and flood coverage. jack L

RE: Listening to the hissing of owls

I think your screech Owls have moved south. Since we came back from snow birding in April, every single night one comes to our front porch and keeps calling to it's mate/girl friend or boy friend. As soon as the other one shows up, there is some almost inaudible billing and cooing. The sliding glass doors in our bedroom open up to the covered porch, so we naturally leave them open with just the screen door between the birds who roost on the back of one of the porch swings and the foot of our bed. I have been tempted to leave the screen door open, but we also have bears and lots of other critters so that is a no-no Ya gotta love nature and all the joy it gives to us ! Jack L

RE: Any canoe, kayak or SUP paddlers here ?

Our first "RV" was a 17' Kevlar lightweight canoe we'd go tripping in for several days at a time. For rougher water we have a 16' Royalex one. I haul one or the other on a pair of bed-mounted racks. What brand was your 17 foot Kevlar canoe ? We have two 17 foot Kevlar Wenonah Jensens. One is our 20 year old beater that we use for exploring, and the other is our much newer one in perfect condition that we use for racing, (stock class) We also have a 16 foot Old town royalex Penobscot that we use in rocky rivers. jack L

RE: Do Brands Matter? (Keystone/Crossroads/Wildwood/Jayco)

Stay away from the Forest river Wildwood! We bought a new 2017 last year, and they are junk. I could fill a couple of pages with every thing that either came apart, broke or was shoddy workmanship. I would never buy another Forest River product as long as I live. Jack L

RE: Any canoe, kayak or SUP paddlers here ?

We have solo canoes, tandem canoes, and solo kayaks. when we are in the kayaks we like them the best and when we are in the canoe we like that the best. When we travel we take our tandem 17 foot Kevlar canoe and our two QCC kayaks on our 78" roof racks Jack L
