RE: State Park permits - is there a better way?

I was checking reservations at one of our favorite state parks a couple weeks ago. The gal said the daily rate had gone up $3 this year and next year the entry permit fee was going up $3, but still electric only sites. Several private campgrounds in the same area for less money with full hookups, daily games and activity's for the kids.

RE: Grand Haven Michigan State Park IMPOSSIBLE to Reserve

I think most all of the more popular State parks in Michigan are this way. Algonac state park on the east side of the state is near impossible to reserve more 5 days in a row. However in that park there are a number of non-reserve-able sites that can work. But you have to take a chance and go there ready to camp and then be lucky enough one is open. If your lucky you can stay the 15 days.

RE: How private are those bathroom/bedroom slides?

I think about sound more than I do someone seeing through a crack. A large group of us were sitting outside our motorhome one time and I went in to use the bathroom. Wow one of those big large loud farts came out. When I went back out one of the group said you really had some gas didn't you and everyone laughed.

RE: USPS mail forwarding vs ???

We have used the USPS forwarding service for over 10 years. You can have the mail forwarded to any address that will accept it (some campgrounds, another home address etc.) We go to the same area each winter and have a P.O. box there. So we have our home mail forwarded to the P.O. Box. Only problem we have had is several times at the beginning our post office where the box is will reject our forwarded mail and send it back to our home address, of course when that returned mail gets back home it is again forwarded to the P.O. box. 2 or 3 times we have had our mail go around in circles for over 3 weeks before we could get it straightened out. What we learned to do is as soon as we get to our winter area, notify the post office where our box is to open our box to allow mail to come there. It's not suppose to be necessary to do that, but it works. As someone else said all mail will not get forwarded, so if you should have any mail that is stamped do not forward you will not get it.

RE: Can a tire explode from Over-inflation?

Very unlikely a good tire will explode from being over inflated. But they are most likely to blow off at the bead before the tire will give out. I have seen that happen. For as long as I can remember truck tires have been required to be in a steel cage when being inflated. Older truck tires that had the steel ring (name escapes me right now) killed many people while inflating them.

RE: Topping up Engine Oil ?

I certainly wouldn't worry about a quart low on a 5 or 6 quart gas engine. I'm sure your oil capacity is well over that and no need to worry about it even down 2 quarts. That's the reason they have ok range on the dip stick. If it's down to the add oil point it's sure lower than 1/2 quart.

RE: Telescoping towbar

When possible unhook on a level area and the tow and tow vehicle in line (not on a angle to one another. Yes the newer tow bars are much easier to unhook.

RE: Packets or Liquid for Black water tank

I'm a packet user, we dump black and gray every 7 days. 65 degrees and below I don't use any packets, 65 to 75 I use one packet, 75 and up I use two packets. We have a 50 gallon black tank. After dumping I add about 5 gallons of water to the black tank with the packets if used.

RE: Valterra valve cable question

Several years back I needed one for just the same thing and I think it was a 1/8"

RE: portable holding tanks

I like the 4 wheel models best. And also like the larger capacity. But the larger the more they hold and the heavier they get. Sometimes on a sandy or muddy sites the larger are not the best. But you don't have to fill them full just because they can hold it. I prefer the Barker tanks.

RE: Which weather radio?

Reecom http://www.reecominc.com/ turns itself off after each alarm. We may get six or seven alarms/activations during summer/winter storms, and to my knowledge this is the only one that resets after each alarm. My choice also.

RE: Brake Buddy Acitaved for no reason

My Brake Buddy locked up one time also. I was driving through a sort of dip on a freeway ramp and all of a sudden heard the tow tires squealing. Got out to look the situation over and it had left about 4 foot of rubber on the road from all 4 tires. So it had to be a full brake that applied. I Checked the brake Buddy setting and all looked fine. That was maybe 3 or 4 years ago and it's never done it again.

RE: leaving house empty

This may have nothing to do with snowbirds leaving the house while on vacation. But, my uncle passed away a few weeks ago. His daughter called his house insurance company to ask if any changes needed to be made to the policy as the house would set empty till they settled the estate. The insurance company informed her if the house was going to be unoccupied for over 30 days they would not insure it. Sometimes your afraid to ask. So she went to another insurance company and was able to get it insured, but at nearly double the cost just because it would be unoccupied. Just something to think about.

RE: 2008 F250 V10 question

I think the SCANGAUGE would be my choice as it can be programmed to do several functions. I love mine on the V10.

RE: Good news for American car/truck builders

To bad the RV manufactures can't have a rating like that.

RE: 2012-2014 Ford Focus Auto Trans Positive Battery Disconnect

I have around 6000 tow miles on my 2014 Focus. I disconnect the positive terminal only. For my breaking system I plug my Brake Buddy into a battery booster. I have gone up to 5 days running off the booster before recharging it. I use separate bulbs in the taillights rather than diodes so there is no chance of back feeding power.
