RE: 1 ton Dually Pickup Owners Question

To the OP. You were lied to. No such laws.

RE: How many miles have you towed in one day?

I've towed over 1000 miles several times but never two days in a row. We go to Charlotte from Albuquerque, about 1650 miles, in two days.

Garmin 760 here but it is terrible. Google maps on my phone and a trucker's atlas work lots better.

RE: Pulling a Car behind 38fk Columbus 5’er

The laws apply to everyone including you, if you choose to flout them that is your business but don't encourage it here. x2

RE: Black Friday Discounts

The New Mexico state parks are giving free day passes to the parks. Does not cover normal camping fees.

RE: When did TT's become "Campers"

My family has owned tents, truck campers, hybrids, travel trailers, class c motorhomes and class a motorhomes and they have all been called campers.

RE: Albuquerque balloon fest on live TV streaming

It's even better living in Albuquerque. This has been one of the best years for the fiesta. So far they have had mass ascensions every day and all the evening events were a go as well. Tonight may be iffy as they are expecting winds to pick up. Tomorrow morning is also looking good. Great way to spend time with a million of your closest friends.

RE: Open Range Fifth Wheels

Check out the owner's forum as previously suggested. We have a 2013 Open Range TT that has been very reliable. Only one warranty item, a bad propane regulator which they quickly replaced. We have taken it cross country several times and many, many 500 to 1000 mile trips too. I did change out the junk tires that came on it after about a year. Ours was built before Jayco and later Thor took over the company but the quality of the older models was excellent. I can't offer an opinion on newer models but many friends own them and seem happy. They do have some of the best floor plans on the market in my opinion.

RE: Garmin GPS keeps taking us off main route

I don't really trust my Garmin (with most up to date maps) even on major highways. I was on I-40 going west and went thru Oklahoma City one night last fall. My Garmin had all the correct dimensions etc. programmed in for my truck with trailer. It warned me there was a bridge up ahead that I could not go under and told me to take an exit. I noticed that the 18 wheelers were not exiting so I stayed behind one that was lots taller than my rig. The Garmin kept warning me to exit and finally told me I had to push an accept button acknowledging I had seen the warnings and choose to ignore them. I stayed behind the 18 wheelers and there was never a low bridge. I stayed on I-40 all the way to NM. Now I use my Trucker's Atlas to check routes and just use the Garmin to show me what the exits look like. I won't buy another Garmin. BTW, this was just one example of bad routing. I have many more examples where it lead me astray.

RE: What Would You Do..

I would allow it depending on the circumstances. If I had water on board and if I had room in the black tank, I would gladly help others until almost full tank. Would have to save a little room for the DW and myself.

RE: Best cell service providers, (areas covered)

We had AT&T for several years but switched to Verizon because we had friends using Verizon that could get a good signal where we had nothing. Been very happy with Verizon for over two years including cross country trips. Price about the same as AT&T.

RE: What Do You do?

I usually carry about 1/2 tank of fresh water (45 gal.). I rarely vary from my planned route. Stop to sleep a few hours and then continue. Not unusual to drive 1000 miles a day. My wife does not help with driving.

RE: TPMS Repeater --TST 507--Will I need one?

I had to add the repeater for my TST system. My TT is 37 ft. and I mounted the receiver under my radio in the truck. I tried one trip and found it kept losing the signal from any or all of the tires. It was not consistent. I added the booster in my front closet and have never lost the signal since adding it.

RE: cable driven Slide out Gearbox

If it goes out but not in the gearbox is NOT the issue. Switch, Controller, Broken cables.. But the same gear box runs it out as in if the gearbox was broken it would not move period, This is the correct answer. It is not the gearbox if it will move either direction. It is also not the motor itself. If all 4 cables on the inside and outside of slide are not broken or missing then it is most likely your switch or possibly a wire disconnected at the motor. All of these items are easy to check.

RE: Cool Mods - Thread restored 10/18/2012

Nothing is free in this world. What about Facebook, Youtube and Google to name a few? And there are numerous RV forums that host your photos permanently for free. We won a "free" membership to a CG at an RV show a few years ago! :M For Facebook, Youtube, and Google YOU are the product, they sell your information to advertisers. Personally I don't use Facebook and block their all-invasive thumbs up buttons that are really a way to track you across almost every part of the internet. For Google/Youtube I pay them $10/month to not be advertised to on Youtube and Google Play Music. Well, they sure ain't gonna get any useful information out of me and can have whatever they want, lol! I ignore ads, I hate ads. I have gotten to an age where I try and buy as little goods and services as possible and anything I specifically want or need isn't going to in an ad. We prerecord all of our TV shows at home and fast forward through all the ads. Oh geez, I just noticed a Good Sam ad at the bottom of this page. Wouldn't have even noticed except for the content of this post... :R Same here. Sorry, I forgot what forum topic I was in.

RE: Need Overnight stop I77 Southbound south of Charlotte

I think the OP is just looking for a place to sleep for 6 hours, not really a campground. We have stayed at Cracker Barrel restaurants before. There is one close to the NC/SC state line. There is also a Walmart in Rock Hill, SC (just south of Charlotte). You could probably find a spot there that you could extend your slideout. If you want a campground there are several very close to the NC/SC state line including a KOA, Carowinds campground and as someone else mentioned Ebeneezer Park outside of Rock Hill.

RE: New Mexico Rt 60

I have lived in New Mexico the better part of my life and I have never been to Pie Town. It's been on my bucket list so maybe it's time.

RE: Sulfur smell from water heater

He needs to do a vinegar wash. Tell him to look in his manual for the exact procedure. Only need to do it one time and good for life. I'm an engineer and don't really understand it but I followed the directions and no more smell in 4 years.

RE: Higher end brands?

I'd stick with the Open Range. We love ours. Very few problems (none that I couldn't fix myself) and the floorplans are the best in my opinion. I also moved up from a Forest River Rockwood Roo hybrid.
