RE: CB Radio???

I've had them in my trucks for a long time. Fishing and hunting trips with multiple vehicles it's nice to have a little conversation, and before cell phones it was important to be able to let the others know you needed to stop for gas or were having a problem. As far as road conditions and police, Waze does a better job of letting you know what is coming up, though the CB is better for things like finding out which lane is actually moving. I travel the same route sometimes camping and NOT camping from PA to VA,, I love using Waze, but do not listen to the alternate routes when towing. I have had it take me some strange ways that a camper would NEVER make it, or allowed.. So basically I use waze for police, accidents, objects on road, ect ,. . .

RE: CB Radio???

I had one, because of having 2 daughters traveling with me at all times, I had to really turn the squelch way up.... and volume down because of the trash.. Now that they are older, and not with us as much, I have been thinking of getting it back into the truck again...

RE: Weekend at a "dry" campground

Off the top of my head. Sorry, math comes easy to me... :) Just pointing out that many of these regulations aren't about eliminating the problem, but rather trying to minimize it to a treatable level. Just having fun on this Monday morning... :B Agree that this is a rule that is in place KNOWING that some will bend, or break them...

RE: Weekend at a "dry" campground

I think with the firewood ban, it's more an "if we can keep the majority from doing it, we've decreased the risk significantly". If the campground has 50 sites and those are filled with 50 different guests per season, then there are 2500 opportunities for buggy wood to be introduced. With the firewood ban, 3/5 of those will get wood at the campground, 7/20 will get it nearby, and only about 1/20 will bring it in from elsewhere. That reduces the risk from all 2500 guests to only about 100 guests. And if the majority of those 100 guests pays more attention to their wood source, then it could reduce it even more. WAY TOO MUCH MATH for a Monday Morning ! ! Did you whip up those estimates up off the top of your head? Or is it something you have been watching?

RE: Weekend at a "dry" campground

I'd have more issues with the no campfires policy (if that is the policy) than the no alcohol. To me, a campfire is a vital part of the camping experience. As far as alcohol, we go to a couple places where it is "prohibited". And all Colorado State Parks limit alcohol to 3.2% only. But the only time I have ever seen anything enforced on that was one time when the ranger stoped and asked us to move a bottle of hard alcohol off the top of the picnic table and onto the ground where it "wasn't obvious". Seems more of a tool that they can use to crack down when necessary, than an actual prohibition. They did not say there was a campfire restriction.... They DID say that there was a policy that prohibited you from bringing your own firewood... Many of the local campgrounds around here have that same rule.. They say it is to stop the bugs... I say it is to make more money

RE: Front AC Not Cooling

Check the foam gasket up on the roof... They have a tendency to move out of place and allow warm air in, which limits the cool air flow.. I did it on mine and it made a huge difference

RE: Fort DeSoto (Florida) still closed

That's a shame... Disney's Fort Wilderness will be closed till AT LEAST next Tuesday, the 19th.. at that point they will asses the damages and see what else needs to be done in order to open..

RE: Receiving Packages?

I ordered a capture plate a few years back from Tweeties.. They delivered it the next day to the Front office of Fort Wilderness.. Disney then placed a note on my camper door and truck stating that there was a package at the front desk... Just make sure you also include your site # on the order so there is n o confusion.

RE: Stolen Wheels and Tires - What to buy?

I recently had one wheel and the spare stolen off my 2007 Sunnybrook Bristol Bay. Since the company is no longer in business, I can't go to them for replacement wheels. I found some online that look reasonably close but I don't know if the width and offset is the same as my current wheels. Does that really make a difference if I use them on the same side? I currently have 5 year old Michelin LT2 M/S tires which I got to replace some Commercial TAs that were recalled. With the age of the tires I'm thinking to replace 4 and keep one as a spare. Not to start another huge tire discussion, but wondering whether to go back to Commercial TAs which I can buy locally, or it seems like some of the newer ST tires might be acceptable? I doubt that I could find the better ones locally though. The GVWR of the fiver is 15000. Any thoughts? What else should I be considering? Thanks LT235/85R16E are most likely overload if you are close to the 15K GVWR. Sailun S637 LRG's are great. They come in both LT235/85R16G and shorter LT235/80R16G sizes. Chris I second the sailun options... I do not recall seeing any bad reviews about them .. And I would call Scott at - Trailer Tires and Wheels he can answer ALL your questions, and ship everything direct to your door... just jack the trailer and install..

RE: wiper (flap) seal won't flip over completely on slide

I like to wax the sides of my slides so the wipers run smaooth and quiet. Don't use silicone on rubber or vinyl, it will destroy it over time. I too wax the sides often.. Was also told to use pledge furniture polish on the wiper seals... It wont dry them out, and is a whole lot cheaper than the stuff that is sold for that..

RE: Hotel, motel, people and dogs

I've said it for years, my dogs are faaaar better mannered and better trained the vast majority of children I come across. I agree but, it's not just the children.. ^^ those children act that way because they are allowed to .. That's the problem with society these days.. ok, one of the problems !
