RE: The Future of RVing

If the trend continue....which it has for a couple of decades now, RV's will continue to get bigger, heavier, and have more frill/bells and whistles. This will require the trend for trucks to get bigger and more powerful.

RE: Mean Critters

Kind of makes one think humans are the meanest of all. Agree Lots of coyotes around here. They sometimes wake me up late at night with their yipping (especially during the winter - when they mate), but aside from that keep to themselves. Same here. See them often in our early morning dog walks. They just look at us and slink away. I have no interest in shooting and displaying them.

RE: Bank blaming Comcast and Verizon

I also have text message alerts set up all all of our accounts. I get a text even before I leave the store where I have used a card. So, I am confident that if someone is using any of our accounts, I will know about it. We have comcast email and Verizon and so far have never had an alert dropped....(email and text alerts.)

RE: Another Newbie Trailer choice

Welcome to the Forum... >Very little difference between how a 26 ft. and 30 ft. will tow and handle. >Pick the floor plan that fits you best. >Get a big enough vehicle to handle whatever you get and then some. >Don't use towing ratings - use PAYLOAD when buying a vehicle. I'd be most concerned about these, "leaks". Leaks are a HUGE issue. Lots more damage than meets the eye can be the result of a leak...even if the leak has been fixed. Good luck with it.

RE: Wash and wax aluminum sided trailers

Well, there you go now... some AGREE that it's more difficult and others DISAGREE that it's more difficult. After all, it's the RV Forum. (now lets discuss who makes the best trucks and we will get only 1 opinion....:)) So, my revised answer is to go ahead and wax your rig and report back with your opinion.

RE: Wash and wax aluminum sided trailers

It is "harder" to clean and maintain than smooth side. Use the same wash stuff and same wax you use on your vehicles.... Waxing is extra hard because of all the ridges in the siding.

RE: Giant bubble levels

I mounted a Wheel Masters "Master Level" to a thick rectangle of plexiglass and then used two of the large 3M magic adhesive strips for wet locations and for the last 7 years it has been fine. I did put some sealant around the edge of the plexiglass to hold it better. The thick plexiglass was necessary to melt the nuts into the plastic so the back was flush and could be mounted with the adhesive strips and not have the nuts sticking out from the plastic. Larry Larry, Post a pic..this sounds really good and I'm a visual learner Thanks.

RE: What type of pickup truck do i need?

Welcome to the Forum... >Pick a trailer that you are interested in and think will work for you. >Come back here to the Forum and post the make, model, length and most important the GVWR (gross vehicle weight rating) There are lots of friendly and knowledgeable folks here that can then give you advice.

RE: Propane - when is a fill a true fill

Ours have always been filled by the "bleeder valve" method. When the bleeder starts spewing, they shut off the fill and charge me by the gallon and tenth of a gallon as indicated on the meter. (example: 4.2 gallons @ $2.49 per gallon = $10.46) Simple enough and works for me.

RE: How low would you go......regarding tire pressure that is?

If you want to get max benefits for load carrying, pump them to the max. psi as stated on the door jam. for original equipment tires. But, you can always weigh your loaded trip ready truck and then consult the spec sheet for your tires and air accordingly.

RE: Seahawks decal for rear of MH

Jon, the difference is we are not "win at all costs" fans. :) Those SEC folks - well....what can we say! :B Since we are already WAY off topic, I'll continue that direction. My life will be complete when the Ducks beat that SEC team and their upstanding QB.

RE: iPad mini 2 with 16gb vs 32 - Update

Apple phones and tablets....no slot for storage cards....deal breaker for me. I'd be looking at a Samsung Tablet.

RE: How Long Should Our Travel Trailer Be?

Whatever length you get - make sure it has a walk around bed and a couple of recliners to sit in. Otherwise you will be looking for a new trailer very soon.

RE: first post help

Be careful of taking advice from those who claim, "Don't even know it's back there."
