Or just open it as the last thing out of the campsite, after the dump station. Won't hurt the hiway a bit and gives other drivers something to talk about.:B
In some states that could get you a ticket. Some states, I have heard, forbid allowing anything to drain from a moving vehicle.
I drain at home. That way there is nobody to explain anything to, and nobody to complain.
Ya gotta post it all, Friend Mowermech...those are regulations governing commercial Montana RV park operations or, as titled in its State regs:
Chapter 37.111, Public Accommodations, sub chapter 216:Trailer Courts and Tourist Campgrounds
No jurisdiction in/on federal lands where a lot of us drycamp...and do note the following exclusion language per "primitive campgrounds".
37.111.216 SEWAGE SYSTEM
(1) (a) Except for primitive campgrounds, an adequate and safe sewage system must be provided in each campground or trailer court for conveying, treating and disposing of all sewage.
Since you are so very good at researching the rules and regulations, look for the USFS rules for campgrounds and dispersed camping on National Forest lands. You will find the same thing, including the prohibition of dumping RV waste water in the vault or pit toilets. Then look for the rules and regulations for Montana State Parks. you will find the same thing, possibly with a diagram of how to fabricate an external holding tank for those RVs which don't have internal tanks.
It IS against the law to dump RV waste water on the ground in Montana, whether you are on state land or Forest Service land!
All it takes is to READ the bulletin board at the entrance to the campground or park, and FOLLOW the instructions!
Like you, I never had really good teeth.
A couple years ago, I went for full upper and lower dentures. They work.
At the present time, mine don't fit quite right. I should go get them relined or get new ones made. But, with the judicious application of denture adhesive, they are OK. But, I really should get something done about it.
The fit does change over time, and it pays to go get them checked now and then.
I haven't really tried to eat corn on the cob or such since I got them, so I can't address that issue. I never did care much for chewing on caramel, so I can't say much about doing that with dentures, either.
All in all, I am glad I got those awful teeth removed, and got the dentures!
I would recommend that you get it done ASAP!
Regulating Waste Disposal from Recreational Vehicles
Montana law regulates the storage and disposal of waste materials from recreational vehicles. The law reads:
"Liquid wastes from sinks, showers, toilets or baths are not allowed to accumulate on the ground surface. Such waste must be discharged into the sewage system serving the trailer court or campground or into an alternate system approved by the department and local health authority."
Kitchen waste water must be held in a watertight and sanitary container. The waste water can be dumped only in a designated waste water sump, a flush toilet, or a trailer holding tank dump station. Pit toilets and sealed vault toilets are not approved dump sites. Kitchen waste water must not be drained onto the ground or into an open container.
Protect your environment. Obey the law."
It would appear that some don't believe it, so I posted it again.
DO NOT dump your RV grey water on the ground in Montana, it IS against State Law!
The way this mod works is the swaybar has a second set of holes on it closer to the axel in the new F53 chasis. This location creates less leverage so the swaybar is stiffer. The only problem is that the sway bar links and sway bar itself is no longer at the proper angles so some of the stiffness is still lost.
My only problem with this mod is that the links are no longer set at a 90* angle and the bar is not parallel to the frame. I have no idea why Ford put in the second mounting hole. Is this an option to stiffen up the suspention? If so is there longer links to get the bar back closer to a 90* angle and parallel with the frame? Maybe the sway bar is used on another style chassis and the second hole is required. Unfortunately I don't have the answers to this. Do we have a insider on here from Ford that can tell us more?
I do know that there is a company out there that make the longer links to replace the factory links when doing this mod however I don't recall who it is.
Go to Amazon, search for Hellwig 7962 adjustable links. They should be about $100 for the pair.
The FIRST thing to do is call the bank that issued the debit card to you, or stop in and talk to one of the bankers.
The sooner you do that, the better, preferably before the charge is transferred from "Pending" to "Permanent".
Call the bank. Immediately!
You should take it to an authorized LP service facility and have it checked. Don't mess around with LP gas, it is just too dangerous if the equipment is malfunctioning. I would not remove the bleed valve if there is LP in the tank, if the restriction would break loose it will shoot very cold, very flammable liquid out under high pressure!
EXACTLY! I would never, EVER take anything propane related to an RV dealer! They are probably clueless for anything other than filling the tank or performing a system leak check.
If there is a problem of any kind with the tank or cylinder, get it fixed!
"I like polkas, Glenn Miller and John Philips Sousa. (and I wasnt born before 1960 - figure that out) Can I camp next to you?"
Anytime you happen to be in Montana. Just give me a shout, and we'll head for the hills. Just remember, it will be "Primitive" camping at its best. No hookups, probably no cell service, no dump station, no garbage service ("Pack It In, Pack It Out"), no bathhouse, no "amenities" at all except for a few water faucets and a few vault toilets.
Oh, yeah, strictly first come, first served, no reservations.
You don't happen to have a bagpipes or polka CD do you?
Dr. Demento (they're coming to take me away, ha ha)?
(I recently found out that it is available as a ring-tone! I may have to upgrade my phone so I can use it!)
John Philip Sousa?
Anyway, loud for revenge is good, but loud and annoying is better!
man you guys spend more on locks the than cost of a tank of gas… in my entire driving life never had a lock on the gas cap and never had any stolen… I don’t lock my tool compartments and seldom loch the entry door…
I guess we travel in different circles sometimes…
that’s not to say I couldn’t happen sometime but I’m not going to expend much effort worrying about it…
For once, we agree on something! However, I do have a locking cap on the Jeep, mainly because Jeep put it there. The ignition key unlocks it.
On a side note, I'm still waiting for somebody who replaced all their dreaded 751 locks to send them to me, so I can have a "one key fits all" coach. Somebody apparently replaced a bunch of the external locks, and I have three different keys to try to remember what fits where! It is annoying!
We just had rain. No excitement here at all. I heard Northern Wyoming had lots of thunder-bumpers from that front, though.
Cool and windy now, but I got the lawn mowed this evening. I haven't fired up the weed wacker yet this year. That Stihl FS85 is getting to be a little big and heavy for me, I may have to look for a lighter one. In the mean-time, I will wake it up one of these days and try it again.
Time to make a quick trip over the forums, then get a dish of mixed nuts and a Newcastle Brown Ale and swatch a little tv.
Oh, yeah, I got a call from Yaesu yesterday, it will cost $36 plus return shipping to repair the FT-2900R. It seems a wire harness and a filter caused the receiver to give up. It should be back in a few days.
You will see who owns it when they want to widen the road.
That has nothing to do with the bank or credit union, that comes under the heading of "eminent domain".
It is probably the least of my worries, since I live 1/10 of a mile off a road which is only about 2 miles long. The chance that they will ever want to widen it is very slim, and they could triple its width without bothering my place. I live at the end of a lane, a "cul-de-sac" if you will, that will probably never be extended. No, I won't worry about eminent domain.
But then, if they want it, I will accept fair market value for it, and be on my way. There are times when I think they would be doing me a favor (like when I think about $12,000 for a new well, which I may need)!
Dang it :h
We bought a brand new 2012 fifth wheel about a month ago.
Received the license plate a few days ago and the title today by mail.
Noticed that my middle initial is wrong and the street address is also misspelled.
Looking over the sales agreement everything is correct.
Wish the bonehead that closed the sale would have paid attention to the important registration details.
Looks like I'll have to get a DMV appointment to get things corrected.
Poop...my luck I guess.
No rest for the wicked :S
I agree. The lack of attention to detail by some people in the world of today is quite annoying. Especially when it is in "official" paperwork! "There is never enough time (or money) to do it RIGHT, but there is always time (and money) to do it OVER!" I never did like that aphorism, but it seems to be the way it is these days.
Very few of us care, it seems!
Well, I guess I COULD go up into the mountains and find a cave, become a hermit, live off of berries, roots, and what I could trap.
Then I would owe nobody anything.
My greatest contribution to society would be in removing myself from it.
Nah, no fun. I'll keep things the way they are.
By the way, I am not kidding myself in the least. I know quite well who owns what. It is clearly identified on the titles!
When we were full-timing in a fiver, the 2 cats rode in cat carriers on the bed.
In over two years of travel, no problems. No accidents, no panic stops, so no cats bouncing off the walls back there.
Actually, since I had a standard cab pickup, with tool boxes in the bed, the trailer was the only place available to put the cats.
Ok, so here is a question I'll be dealing with this summer.
3 families meeting up in a campground. Half of it is first come first served. We are arriving on a Monday from different parts of the country. Would it be kosher if the first family went ahead and claimed (and paid) for 3 spots knowing that all three will be occupied by the end of the day? It's a very popular campground in Colorado which is why we are arriving on a Monday in hopes of there being 3 sites available.
I don't know about where you are, but around here some USFS campgrounds have reservable "Group sites" for large gatherings. If a local campground has such, it might be what you need to do. Just reserve the "Group Site" (or area) for your family.
According to the rules previously posted, ("At least one camper must occupy site on first night and campers may not leave equipment unattended for more than 24 hours.") each site MUST have a camper the first night. IF your family members WILL arrive before dark, you have complied with the rules as they are written. If all else fails, put up a pup tent and let one of the kids sleep in it. The rule has been complied with!
When in doubt, ask the Camp Host for guidance!
Their property, their rules to make. They don't want my 2002 coach, I don't want to give them my money. That means we are both happy.
I have been lucky, I guess, I have never encountered such an RV park. But then, I only go to places that identify themselves as a "campground" or "RV park". If it says it is a "resort" or "gated community", I figure they aren't my kind of people. I try to stay with the sirloin steak, baked potato, and Budweiser crowd, and avoid the Filet Mignon, caviar, and champagne bunch.
I am considering a new company vehicle that would be used as both a service vehicle and a tow vehicle. We would be towing a 8200 LB (loaded) tag along. The vehicle I am considering is a Ford 3/4 ton van with a 5 liter. What are your thoughts?
"service vehicle"... "VAN"
May we assume the van body will be fitted out with racks and bins for tools and parts? If so, there is a good chance that you will be at or over the GVWR in a short time ("stuff" accumulates, y'know).
If it were me, I would go with a one ton diesel.
Who is Dave Ramsey, and why should I care what he thinks of what I do?
IMO, that is part of what is wrong with the world today: Too many "experts" telling us common folks how we should live, what we should eat, and what we should do. I pretty much ignore them. I think more people should do the same!
The credit union and I own two vehicles. The credit union lets me drive them anytime I want, in return for making the payments and keeping them insured.
The bank and I own a house. The bank lets me live in it in return for making the payments. The bank pays the taxes and insurance out of an escrow account.
I'm OK with that. I get what I want, and the credit union and the bank make a profit that they can lend to others.
Dave Ramsey just preaches conservative financial practices "like Grandma would tell you" according to Dave. Just good sound advice to help others avoid paying "stupid tax". Dave tells his radio show callers the obvious answer they need to hear but should have had to ask, but does so in an entertaining manner.
I agree on your comment about "experts". Dave would be an exception however.
Ah. I see. Another "talking head", like limbaugh, hannity, beck, orman, etc. I don't know much about them, either.
I don't listen to "talk radio". I don't find it particularly entertaining, and it is rarely informative (in that it rarely applies directly to me and my family).
I don't know about HIS Grandma, but the only financial advice mine ever gave was to "pay your bills in a timely fashion".
If the seller signs the title transfer, and sends in the tab off the title to show the state the rig was sold, and gives the buyer a notarized Bill Of Sale, there should be no problems. The signed title and BOS should be all any Law Enforcement Officer needs. No "Permission to Drive" is required, the BOS shows that. The California license plates will stay on the rig until the title is transferred in Alaska, and the buyer gets Alaska plates. The signed title and BOS will also show why the driver has an Alaska drivers license and the rig has California plates.
However, to be sure, one could check with the RCMP border patrol to see what they think.
