RE: BoB Tiffin "Standup Guy"

I was attending the Hershey RV show a few years ago and met Bob ... He was sitting in a motor home and we had a great conversation.. He and his wife stayed 4 sites down from us at the campground and he would be seen sitting at a neighbors campfire with them ,or at their picnic table chatting...just because... You just don't see that anymore ..

RE: Air in hot water lines

When I fill my HW tank for the first time after flushing, I open my HOt Water Heater purge valve located at the top of the heater ... It will push out most of the air before allowing the water to flow out...once it's all water and no air , I go inside and turn the hot water spigot on and keep it on until it's water only.. It just sounds like you have air in the system

RE: honda genny theft deterrent apparatus

Honda sells a metal handle cover that makes it a lot HARDER to cut the handle... Not theft proof , just harder... Mine are out of site until it's time to fire them up , at that time , they are kryptonite rope attached to a non movable object , under the handle that has the metal on it... If they walk/ run away , what can I do ??? Stealers will always steal...we can't stop them ,we can only slow them down...

RE: how to decide on buying a trailer - the dream vs reality

Your not buying STUFF....your buying memories ..especially with kids that age... Our kids are now 21 and 16.. And still go with us probably 95%of the time... We were camping long before the oldest was born.. Our first trailer was a used 20' Corsair... We used to put the kitchen table down and put the crib on it.. A few years back when my youngest was in elementary school they had to do a colodge based on their summer with cut outs from magazines... Hers was all cut out from Trailer Life magazines , Camping World , and things like that.. Right smack in the middle of the paper was a large fifth wheel , the family outside at the campfire...in her handwriting was- the best place ever!,

RE: Advice please for Ford F350 6.7l

I waited until I had 750+ miles on mine to tow. I used Diesel Plus on my last truck , nothing with the 6.7-per my service writer. The tow / haul mode works real well. The new exhaust brake is awesome!!! I love my truck...and you will too!!!! Joe Wow Joe-that is a great looking combination! What trim level is your truck? That's a lariat . There are still some shots of my other truck-2009 lariat -(traded) Did I say how much I love the performance of this beast?

RE: Prices for Goodyear 614 "G" tires

The Sailun tires are made in China according to the US rep in FL. Kenda is another brand that comes up and at least for the auto application, reviews are quite favorable. Like the Sailun's, they too are made in China or Tawain. Cost wise, the Sailun's and Kenda's are about 150 bucks as opposed to GY's $325. Anyone ever hear/use Kendas? What about warranty for either brand? Not sure about switch rims to 17.5. Just hate like heck to spend 1300 bucks, but at same time want something of quality and assurance. Saliluns - YES.. go for it as their standards are as good as the best.. Kendas - ???

RE: very high fifth wheel and bridge concerns

Don't stop worrying. Stay alert. An Arlington man died after a semi collided with a Central Texas overpass late this (Thursday 3/26) morning, causing a beam to come crashing down onto vehicles and halting traffic on Interstate 35 north of Austin near Solado. See link. As of 9pm, I-35 is still closed. Note that this is an Interstate, not a rural road where one would anticipate height issues. I gather there were warning signs, but the bridge was under construction, so it likely was not accurately in map/GPS databases. this was caused by an oversized vehicle (>14ft tall) without proper permit local news story Oversized load or not,, That Beam SHOULD NOT have fallen off.. It was the opposite side of the bridge. Looking at the pictures , it looks like they were PLACING the beams in place , and did NOT secure them in anyway.. Horrible for the family of the deceased... the driver of the truck will be at fault , BUT it looks like the construction company should be looked at also ??

RE: A tire issue..??

This is what the folks at Wingfoot said - Appearance -Even Tread wear in center with steps worn in Shoulders. this is confined to the outer portion of the shoulder rib. Probable Cause - Typical if radial tires in slow wearing operations. May vary with tread design and service applications Tire - Little or no loss in overall mileage will result provided tread depth differential is not excessive. Tires can remain on the steer axle. So that's both Goodyear and MORryde telling me its very common... Thanks for fast the responses gang ! In fact , they pulled up a picture from their computer that was exact to mine. the pic was form the site indicated by "CapriRacer"

RE: CB Radios

I used to drive OTR... I was used to CB's... I travel with 2 kids and removed my CB when they started to listen in to the drivers... I was finding more times than not that I would find out about accidents too late to help.. and the language just kept getting worse..! I now use the Waze app on my phone and I get warning in enough time to react...

RE: A tire issue..??

I have found suspensions where the spring hanger bushings have worn out will cause unusual tire wear. Those plastic/nylon bushing do not last very long. If it was me, I would upgrade the suspension before getting an alignment. there is nothing to upgrade to,,,, I already have Independent Suspension on the trailer... Not sure there is anything better??

RE: A tire issue..??

Well . The folks at MORryde just answered me back and they say that it looks like normal wear that a G-614 have.. They did tell me to raise the trailer and check the bearings for tightness , but they are pretty certain that's normal wear... In fact , the guy who answered (Gary) , has a 15,000# camper with the G-614's and IS suspension. His tires looked exactly the same on the inside edges .. He was able to get 60,000 miles before changing them out.. I am taking a trip over to Wingfoot later this morning to verify...

RE: very high fifth wheel and bridge concerns

Mile High - Something is strange here. I am 13'6" and came down that stretch of I-25 and under that bridge last summer with no problems. Also, I just checked my trucker atlas and it shows that a semi trailer of standard height (13'6") can travel I-25 through Denver. Is it possible that sign indicates the low point outside edges of that bridge are 13' and that the center is actually higher (14') ? I think I took the middle lane under it. I also was under the impression that all interstates provided clearances of at least 14' when they went under a bridge. Tim Normally I believe the footage sign is placed near the low point.. I would agree that IF that bridge was in fact 13' in the middle , that the sign would be in the middle... I am betting that the height of 13'0" is for the low points in the middle of the road between the 2 directions , NOT the arch , right were the sign is.. WITH THAT SAID... Don't ever take your RV on the Southern States Parkway , or Belt parkway in NY... 9' in spots..

RE: A tire issue..??

The trailer has the Mor/Ryde IS suspension on it... The tires may have 20,000 miles on them... Give or take.. And the outside tire edge has a very minor step,, barely noticeable. All 4 are almost identical in wear pattern

RE: How Much is Local Dealer Worth in Purchase Price?

I would show him the cost of the other trailer..many tell him if they meet it or beat it (that's up to you) you will buy it... At that point, Offer a hand shake, that shows him your ready to make the deal.. If they know your ready and serious , they will /should meet your number....

RE: Bluewater Key CG

It may be the best CG and location in the nation. I have to agree... The PROBLEM with staying there is once you do , your spoiled.. everything else wont measure up . . And yes , the cost is about the SAME as all the other places in the keys with a few exceptions . . .
