RE: using BAL levelers

Interesting in that the BAL 28050 leveler is actually a leveler and not a stabilizer as suggested. They go under the tire and then lift the axle as such. They are even listed by BAL as a leveler. I don't think they have the capacity to lift a dual axle trailer wheel to the levels you might be needing. These levelers are originally made for pop-ups and other very light trailers.

RE: Travel trailer sway

If you have a 10,000# trailer with only 750# tongue weight then you will need to increase the tongue weight to at least 10% of the trailer weight. Most recommendations are for 10 to 15 percent of trailer weight in tongue weight. Try to relocate items in the trailer and see if this fixes the problem.

RE: Question for the Hensley/ProPride people

I've got the Hensley and have not had a problem with truck, one side or both sides, passing me even with side winds. I need to be save and don't travel with high cross winds but have not had ANY sway problems with 36', 9,000# load even in a panic stop. You will be pleased. Take the learning curve without panic and it will work well. Just be patient until you learn the system. An electric drill will work for the WD adjustments.

RE: Foodsaver/Vacuum Sealers

Been using one of the originals for years and would never be without it. Also lets us shape the packages to fit in the freezer better. Have not used the attachments for liquids. You can find the bags online cheaper than most stores.

RE: Expert advice for Insane person?

If that is the one in Saline I'd check the inside ceiling very good. none of the photos show the ceiling but all of the floor coverings look worn. If the ceiling has been repainted or there are signs of a leak I'd run from the deal.

RE: support group

As with my prostate cancer support groups, you should contact the hospital or your surgeon and they will know of local ones. They may even sponsor one right where you are.

RE: Microsoft Streets and Trips coming to end of life

At least I have a copy of 2013 and can keep it and the POI's updated with POIFactory.

RE: Looking for folding aluminum chairs

Your best bet for cheap lightweight chairs might be the bag folding chairs at Walmart for $6.88. Strap over the shoulder and includes a cupholder

RE: Awning Screen

Made my own from Shade Cloth from Walmart. Total cost under $25. I've used it several weeks out of 3 years but only when in a sunny site that won't allow positioning other than 'awning to the west'. When needed it was great but have not needed it much. It is very light and doesnt take up much room.

RE: Dumping Black Water On The Ground?

Saw that thread this morning and one person was trolling the thread and keeping it going. Just looked and it is not there anymore or I forgot exactly where it was and can't find it. Back in the 60's and 70's we did let grey water drain out but that has been stopped from any campground I know of. Progress does give us better living conditions and that is a good thing.

RE: Used 4 drawer fire proof file cabinet pricing

Ebay has them from $50.00 to $2,500.00 but you must pick most of the up yourself.

RE: Used 4 drawer fire proof file cabinet pricing

Start looking into closed factory or office auctions. You may get lucky finding one this way.

RE: Gilbert/Mesa Campground Recommendations

2gypsies, Thanks for clearing that up. I didn't see that it was included by looking at the fee schedules. My mistake and it puts the State and County parks back in the running.

RE: Gilbert/Mesa Campground Recommendations

harley-dave, thanks for the suggestion but I'm feel since I'm from out of state I can't justify the additional fees for a State or County Park. With $30/day for developed site and $6/day for the vehicle it is the same cost as a KOA or RV Resort that will give pools, sewer, and WIFI. The State and County parks in AZ look fantastic and I really would stay in them if the cost was not out of line, IMO. You guys have some great parks with great views and should really be proud of them. Thanks for the suggestion. We are going to stay on the island in Havasu City the following week. Another great place.

RE: Trip Planning Software - Not Sure About MS Street & Trips

I use the same software, S&T, and do the same as you. I also track in a spreadsheet the distance S&T gives me to each destination then calc the change in distance for miles traveled that day. This gives me an additional spot to put the campground, phone, sights at that location, total cost, and many other things that can be listed once researched and shown. PM and I can send it.

Gilbert/Mesa Campground Recommendations

Will be in AZ mid-April 2015 visiting family in Gilbert and need recommendations on a campground. I've looked at many online that are very restrictive, narrow roads, not pet friendly, etc. and am looking for something for two seniors (65+), one small dog and a 34' TT, full hookup, wifi would be nice. We don't need all the 'resort' activities but also don't need to be smashed between park models either. Right now I'm looking at the Mesa/Apache Junction KOA as a possibility but don't know anyone who has been there. The distance from Gilbert is not a problem. We will spend 10 days before going on to Lake Havasu City for other relatives. Cost there is $36/nite and alright with us. This is after 14 days from MI and before 7 days in LHC with a 19 day return trip. I'm looking for other recommendations for the area. Thanks for the help.
