RE: gas station canopies height ?

Now that I'm starting to take this new 5th Wheel out more, I notice that gas station canopies don’t have clearance signs. Can I assume that a modern gas station will have no issues with my 13’2” heigh 5’er ? I have a gas truck, so the truck lanes are not an option…any other words of advice ? Assume nothing. Canopies vary a lot. Have shotgunner get out and watch. Be sure the the frig is not running on propane when in a service station. Chris Agreed! I saw a video whereas fiver pulled into station and hit the overhead. The large (and HEAVY) overhead assembly was struck by the fiver's roof and the overthead crushed the towvehicle flat! I assume no survivors, crushed FLAT! If I can locate that video again I'll post it. That would be the one at the bank drive-thru! An amazing accident caught on tape near Longview, Texas. You can see a truck pull up to the bank, but the travel trailer behind it clips the canopy, sending the whole structure crashing down! No one was injured. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lVIDddPQdEs I stand corrected. It was an ATM not a pump. The driver survived that?? I see pros and cons under comments section about the driver. Regardless-please be wary of overheads.

RE: Strange emergency vehicle lights, can you ID?

Some say it's political - I say it's fact. It is a national police force and armed fairly heavily I might add.

RE: Neat folding trailer

That thing ain't gonna hack it at a Walgreens. Talk about lack of "slidein" walkaround space when stopping for a quick lunch or toilet break? :h

RE: Strange emergency vehicle lights, can you ID?

Homeland security has morphed into a Nation police force with little accountability. That's exactly what Obama said he was going to do years ago. Build am armed force under his direct control separate from Military command and control! I always was under impression that the MILITARY was responsibility for the SECURITY of our HOMELAND.

RE: Replace Toilet with Composting for FT use

Actually the carrier or homing pigeon is a domesticated rock dove used to navigate specified routes usually to deliver messages. Very much alive and well. The Passenger Pigeon is extinct. You're right. I stand corrected. :)

RE: Replace Toilet with Composting for FT use

Now ask us about kerosene lamps, carburators, carrier pigeons, etc. and we'll be full of practical advice. ;-) Please tell me more about carrier pigeons. They're Extinct!

RE: Replace Toilet with Composting for FT use

From what I've seen on ads, comments, etc., composting toilets tend to not work well in cooler weather, like winter? Maybe they've improved upon this lately. IMHO

RE: BUILT IN SELF DESTRUCT FROM FACTORY

That is one long paragraph, you may want to break it up for a better understanding when reading. X2

RE: Jumpin' the Rez

Yep, the Haida lived from the sea, and needed "reliable?' power in the engine room. I'm missing something. Doesn't it seem logical to have whole-bodied rowers to also participate in the raid in addition to the regular raider? Power in numbers?

RE: Jumpin' the Rez

The Haidi used to raid our local tribes, capture prisoners and take them back north. Some had their legs removed below the knees, and their purpose in life was to become a paddler. So let me understand this. * Capture people to use as paddlers only. * They must have had a lot of sea canoes that need to be constantly paddled. * Amputate legs below knees. * Captive is virtually useless to the tribe for any other labor around the camp. * Since the captive is a slave, seems like an unlikely scenario of human resource management. * On the other hand, the captives ain't running away from camp anytime soon! :)

RE: New to the class B world

I've got a great idea for a name plate on the rear of your new camper - "Fernando's Hideaway". Us Old Fogies will remember that as a early 1950's song. (Had to denote that fact due to your age.) :)

RE: seatbelt laws

I am amazed that folks are still having discussions about seat belt laws. Seat belts should be worn because it is the safest thing to do. Not because it's the law. X2 If one feels that seat belts are uncomfortable they might find out that a stretcher is much worse.

RE: Food poisoning

ok... I have a comment... So food poisoning. I have had it many many times. Not that I love to eat rotten food. I lived in IRAN !!! Anyway.. food poisoning is a bad bacteria that grows in food not kept or prepaired properly. What kills bacteria? Antibiotics. I always save a few antibiotic pills here and there from the doctors office. Being a professional food poisonee, I can always tell early when it starts bubbling up downstairs. I just drop one of those antibiotic bombs down there early, while the bacteria is still just in the stomach. Blows it up. Food poisoning bacteria is usually some standard bacteria and is easily killed by a single antibiotic pill. Drop one down on the first sign, and you are up and running in 5 hours later. ghI do believe that the second half of the last sentence above could be rephrased a bit. ;)

RE: RV trip to NH, VT, ME

In Maine ... Mount Desert Island for real Lobsta, NOT imitations like big crayfish! And Acadia National Park. In NH ... Take the Cog Railway or one of the Stages to the summit of Mount Washington. Carry warm clothes just in case. If you have a suitable toad drive up the auto road to the summit. And, do not ignore the BRAKE pullouts! Save your brakes going downhill. Use lower gears. You'll know when it's time to save brakes. Spend time exploring and adventuring and less time at a static campsite. JMHO :)

RE: Oven users unite!

When the stone is hot, I spread a bit of spread corm meal on the stone. Prevents burning and sticking. Some pizza parlors use meal too. That's where I got the idea.
