RE: old school observation.... tire whacker

> and no inferred thermometer... > and no weighing each axle and each wheel individually before each trip... I have long believed that we RV'ers tend to make RV'ing more complicated that it needs to be.

RE: Our Prayers to Our Canadian brothers

I thought it was great when the House of Commons gave the sergeant-of- arms (Kevin Vickers) who stopped the shooter a standing ovation and then the whole assembly sang, "Oh Canada." Very moving and a great show of solidarity.

RE: Annuities, cashback cards & stuff

Annuities are a great way to prepare for retirement... But, start early and save as much as you can. Credit Cards. If you have a very good credit score, look at Capitol One Quicksilver.

RE: OMGosh! Crack in the side of our Cameo?????

I would put some clear caulk in there for the time being to keep the moisture out. Good advice and a good start But, then determine the cause of the crack. Worse possible scenario is some kind of under-lying frame failure. Hope not....

RE: propane smell

Not sure about the smell you are experiencing, but why are you positioning the tank selector in the middle? If it is an auto-change over system, point the selector to one tank or another. When that tank is empty, the red indicator will pop-up and the reg will automatically switch over to the other (full tank) and your gas appliances will keep running. Now you can switch the selector to the full tank and have the empty tank refilled.

RE: What is it?

I'm glad the mod decided to re-think his decision and to re-open this thread. No "rules" were broken. Some responders were just having some fun. RV'ing is suppose to be fun. None of the above responses were out of line, rude, or inappropriate.

RE: GPS stand/mount question

First, no one really steals GPS units all that much anymore. But, to answer your question, how about a good old standard dash bean bag mount? Set it anywhere and move easily move it to the floor out of sight when you stop. http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/611PB3OkaXL._SL1500_.jpg width=350

RE: What is it?

RE: Blue Rhino propane tanks

Propane is propane...doesn't matter what tank it come in... But, Blue Rhino exchange tanks are not a good deal. Often are short filled and are always more expensive per gallon than having your own tanks filled. More convenient? (maybe)

RE: Manufacturers making defective tires

My new 2013 trailer came with Akuret tires from Lions Head Tire and Wheel from Goshen, In. Old story...trouble is, new, inexperienced RVers/buyers are completely unaware of the tire story that the rest of us have learned by paying our dues through experience. I can assure you that the Akuret tires on your trailer maybe came from Goshen, IN, but they were manufactured in China.

RE: Dometic Refrigerator Not Working

Not trying to be insulting, but did you turn on the propane? (That was my problem once...:S) Have you tried it on electric?

RE: Didn't Believe about the Chinese Tires

Just like us, we tend to "grenade" with age.

RE: Talladega _ Nascar

Good discussion between folks who love the sport...(and probably miss the good old days a little too much) But, I have been ranting/posting for a couple of years now that this France (Brian) is not up to the task and certainly not as capable as his family predecessors. Certainly can't fire him, but he should remove himself from the day to day control and decision making role and turn it over to someone else. He would be best for him to just sit up in the grandstands and watch, but not manage.

RE: This day 1933

We call it, "Transmission Cooler not optional Highway." If they built it today it would cost 2.9 million dollars a yard!!

RE: Talladega _ Nascar

For me, the two highlights of the race were watching Danica actually pass some fast cars all the way to the lead,....plus seeing so many people that it filled the stands and the pits (this means Talladega will open for business next year). Agree..and.. I actually think Danica got cheered almost as much and as loud as Jr. did when he took the lead. Good stuff.

RE: average GPM concerns

Sadly, that's what you are going to get hauling a 4 ton sail.

RE: Much asked question/difference between 3/4 ton and 1 ton?

My understanding that beside the leaf difference, the wheels and brakes are heavier duty/bigger also. (but then again, I don't understand all that much...:))
