RE: Ford 460 power increase - california smog legal

So California requires vehicles that old to go through emissions testing? In Connecticut (unless they changed it again, which wouldn't surprise me...) vehicles 25 years or older are exempt from emissions testing.

RE: Annoying neighbor

... What is the best month,year,day and time for that? ... Honestly? Probably Fridays, around noon, most any month. Try to leave the weekends for relaxing, and, well, camping. We have been to some campgrounds with large seasonal populations that schedule certain weekends for "yardwork". If you look on their websites for scheduled activities, work weekends are listed. These are usually "opening weekends" in spring and "closing weekends" in fall. Also some campgrounds restrict using mowers, blowers or other power equipment until the afternoon on weekends.

RE: Annoying neighbor

Electric/battery powered ok. Uhhh, no. In many cases the whining of the turbine that makes more noise than a gas engine- and I know of plenty of electric blowers that make just as much noise as gas ones. That being said, it's sad that so little common sense applies any more. I'd think a quick 5-min blow job a couple of times a day (maybe Mid AM and Mid PM) would be OK. OTOH, I'm sure there's crazies who might be out at 7:00 AM and going at it for 30 minutes. Yep, I was thinking of posting similar... electric is not always quieter.

RE: Fresh Water Tank Dropped Out!

Is Sunline still in business? Friends had an older 24' Sunline, other friends had a 13' Sunline, and the quality was excellent.

RE: Questions about Tractor Supply

I just walked into a Tractor Supply store for the first time yesterday. One of my trailers needed a new axle (landscaping trailer). Local trailer place had to order the axle and hubs, and the hubs would not be installed (not really a big deal). Tractor Supply had the axle I wanted, with hubs attached, sitting on a shelf for half the cost. Actually even better, as it had "easy lube" hubs. I understand the axle may not be quite as heavy duty, but it will work for what I need and they had it in stock (actually, I wouldn't be surprised if the trailer place would have ordered the same axle). I always want to frequent small, local stores over big box stores, but when I need a part right now I do what I need to do. So my first experience with TS was very impressive. We'll see what happens as time goes on.

RE: tires out of round because of bent wheels

The only time I've had a "bent wheel" on any vehicle I've owned is after being in an accident. Definitely get a second opinion.

RE: Think it's worth it?

And they are really expecting someone to buy it?? At least they are honest with the pictures. Nothing wrong with trying, I guess...

RE: Engine Oil

I would assume a 2014 is still under warranty? Then I would recommend doing what the owner's manual says and using the products the owner's manual says to use. After any warranty runs out, then experiment with different oils.

RE: Rodents!

The Decon bait/poison is very mild. I had a pest control guy tell me not to bother with it, but to buy "One Bite" bait and especially "Ramik" bait. This is the stuff that makes the critters thirsty so they will leave to find water (most of the time) before dying. ... The active ingrediant in one bite is bromethalin. Should your pet ingest it or a poisoned mouse, there is no antidote. At least with the anticoagulant poisons, like dcon, there is a common antidote available should your pet ingest it. I understand the dangers of using bait, I don't want my pets ingesting ANY poison, mild or strong, antidote or not. All poison should be placed where "good" animals can't get to it. "Bait Containers" are rather common and can be purchased (usually) wherever poison bait is sold. As to ingesting a poisoned mouse... my understanding is that by the time a mouse would be ingested by another animal, the amount of bait the mouse has eaten is small to begin with, and the small amount of bait has been greatly reduced in effectiveness by ingestion by the mouse. There are dangers to everything. Understand how the product works that you are thinking of using and use it according to directions. You can always do something else if you are not comfortable with it.

RE: 1st long trip,Colo. to New England to Nova Scotia and back.

... And finally, Tim Horton's is the Canadian Starbucks, and they're everywhere. ... Semi-humorous note about Tim Horton's... I am a big coffee drinker. When we went to the Canadian side Niagara Falls we stopped at a Tim Horton's for a "regular" coffee. It comes in something like an 8oz cup -- which looks smaller than a "child" size cup down here in the States. Basically, it is an actual "cup" of coffee, as opposed to our "mega multi-gallon super-size" containers that we are used to drinking out of. Good coffee, just be ready for realistically sized cups!

RE: Fresh Water Tank Dropped Out!

Let us know how well the warranty works. Make sure you get confirmation from the warranty company about what they will pay for before you get any work done.

This is the stuff that makes the critters thirsty so they will leave to find water (most of the time) before dying. I use Moth balls... OUTSIDE the camper, wherever anything touches the ground - around the wheels and the tongue jack. I use dryer sheets and Irish Spring soap inside -- not sure if it bothers the mice, but the dryer sheets help to absorb moisture and the soap makes the camper smell good in the spring. Personally I don't like the glue traps. You end up having half alive animals that you have to dispose of. Glue traps work and do the job, just be aware of what you may have to deal with. Traditional snap traps are quick and effective.

RE: Need help selecting new Travel Trailer

Are you sure you want a trailer as small as a Casita or Scamp? (which are great trailer, by the way). You didn't say you would be "fulltiming", but if you will be traveling that much you might want more room for cargo... and for me, luxury would be a roomy bathroom.

RE: 1st long trip,Colo. to New England to Nova Scotia and back.

Most state parks in Connecticut close by September 30 for camping, some have only drive in, first come from early September. A few CT state parks are open for camping until mid October for drive in, first come basis. Few CT state parks have "hookups" - no electric and water at campsites. Most state parks you can fill water tanks at the shower / bathrooms and/or water spigots scattered around the campground. Late in the season you might find the hookup sites open and available. Majority of private parks in Connecticut close on Columbus Day weekend, mid-October, as another poster pointed out. One neat thing with the private campgrounds in October are the "Halloween Weekends", they can be a ton of fun. The reason why some leaves might be changing and dropping already in Connecticut and New York is lack of rain the second half of summer. It is really dry right now (not "drought" like out west, though!). Avoid traveling on I95 as much as you can. Have fun! I am jealous.

RE: Learned something new about camping....

lol, people are either complaining about all the shade trees blocking their satellite connection, or complaining about the lack of shade trees... We've had the most "issues" with pine trees. A lot of cleanup after the sap hits the camper and then gets covered with pine needles stuck in it.

RE: Very frustrating situation, going to blow some steam!

So... did all this happen during this summer?

RE: inflating tires on rv with nitrogen, good idea?

I'm interested in hearing comments on using nitrogen in tires on my rv, supposed to run cooler and maintain air pressure better. Any comments would be appreciated. Tom Considering you've been on these forums since 2009, that makes me a bit suspicious that you are just having a little fun... lol!

RE: inflating tires on rv with nitrogen, good idea?

I can't believe this generated 4 pages! As the discussion continues, it gets warmer, which makes it expand... When I bought my 2008 F350, I noticed it had green caps on the tires. I then noticed the "fee" for nitrogen filled tires on the sales contract (I don't remember exactly, but I think it was around $200!?)... I pointed this out, and just looked at the very nice saleslady. She kind of grimaced, and removed the nitrogen fee. When I picked up the truck I noticed the caps on the truck were black... I almost went back and asked if they had actually let the "nitrogen" out of all the tires and then refilled them with "normal" air.
