RE: How do FWs handle uneven terrain?

I have about 6 inches of clearance and camp in farmers pastures several times a year, no issues to date.

RE: Story behind F450 pickup frame failure? (photo)

Semi old news Someone here (another forum?) that knows the owner stated it was excessive weight. I don't recall the weight of the camper but I think it is higher then agesilaus recalls. As I recall the owners took the F450 into a frame and body shop and had the frame repaired and strengthened.

RE: yellowstone

Snow comes later than May. We were there for Fathers Day a few years ago and all our pictures of Old Faithful were in a blizzard. The NE pass was closed also for snow. .... I've seen is snow every month of the year, but it's more the exception then not. That pass is also over 10,000 ft. It frequently isn't open at all until July

RE: Need some advice from BC Snowbirds.

Also consider the US Ferry from Sidney. Bellingham RV park is close enough into town to allow you to do your shopping at the various stores in town. Seattle and/or Portland, after 9AM but before 3PM Consider turning out to the coast at Olympia and continuing down to Cannon Beach from there. Be warned that 101 from Greys Harbor down to the Columbia River is very twisty. Flat, but lots of corners.

RE: yellowstone

*Time, before the 4th of July or after Labor Day. *Recall that the park is at 5000 ft, far north of you. Spring comes late (it still might snow in May) and Fall comes early (snow in late Sept is not unknown) *How long in the park depends on you. If you just want to "car tour", two days is about enough. If you want to hike, watch wildlife, etc. A week is not too long. I lived near the park for many years and visited every month of the year, each time I got to see something different.

RE: Gas prices falling!

Locally prices stopped falling some weeks ago and some of the "price leaders" edged back up about a dime. OPEC is meeting, literally almost right now (I think it's tomorrow) and yes some members want to slow production and increase prices (Iran, Venezuela) But others do not (Nigeria and Saudi Arabia). What the results will be I'm not smart enough to know. But I'm guessing that production will continue at near current levels. The producers that want to maintain current production have number of reasons: *They can make enough money at lower prices *The prices are low enough that fracking/tar-sands/oil-shale production may not be cost effective *They want to reign in the military spending in Russia and Iran (current prices is costing the Russian government about $100B per year) In the long run, consumption drives prices, but in the short run speculators can drive up the prices. Recall 2008 when world wide consumption was falling, but the speculators were driving up the futures prices. Of course when those futures matured and actual oil demand could not maintain the prices, some of the "late comers" to the oil-futures took a fleecing

RE: K&N filters

put one in my V10 rv and it clogged up the mass air flow sensor. That is why they are NOT recommended. Well, that and they allow larger dust particles into the cylinder. Which you could expect to be hard on your engine.

RE: This is what Torklift calls service??? Ridiculous...

Simply not surprised, my dealings with them have been as positive as yours.

RE: From Vernal to Spanish Fork UTAH

US-40 to US-6, easy route, enough crawler lanes.

RE: More lack of control in Chinese goods

A guy I know moved his production of his widget to China, with some tight contract controls on the manufacturer. Then he started seeing "grey market" imports of his widget, duplicated down his customer service phone number on the documents. Turned out the owner of the factories "cousin" owned a neighboring factory that was producing the copies

RE: Monetizing videos on YouTube: Experience/Comments

Lots of people responding with, fairly obvious, no knowledge of actually being a "youtube publisher". I have a bunch of vids I have loaded, since mine are almost all recreational I didn't bother with monetizing. I have a friend that used to make and sell DVDs of him demonstrating various technical things. When sales fell off he looked into monetizing his videos on Youtube. Due to all the hoops he had to jump through he decided to just upload them and use the publicity to help him get teaching gigs

RE: Life expectancy of pickup campers...

No RV made is designed to be left in the weather, unoccupied, unheated, 24-7-365; period. My old 12 year old RV looked new, because both owners kept it undercover. My current rig has been garaged since it arrived. Buy the best camper you can, and treat it with care and it can last decades.

RE: Bent plate

Ya, you need to replace everything that is bent. Unfortunately that might mean replacing the entire hitch. The document on the Superglide do warn that "damage may occur" in this type of situation.

RE: Have you been to Yellowstone in the winter?

Many times, I lived nearby for years. Skied, snow-shoed, snow-mobile, etc. Lots of fun for me. If you can't handle cold and snow, and maybe more cold, don't go.

RE: How much snow is too much.

1991 we had rain, freezing rain, snow and then more freezing rain. The snow part was about 2 ft. The weight was so high RV roofs collapsed. But then so did the Alberstons Grocery, the college library, the NAPA auto parts store, car-ports, patios, etc. Several marinas sank (snow load on the boat-houses, and docks). The year before we had three feet of just snow and nothing (much) was damaged. So it's weight, not just feet.

RE: 3-step entry unit broken

The steps are all very much the same size. I've never seen any replacement parts, flamingstar fixed his with a bolt, I fixed mine with a chunk of angle-stock and my welder.

RE: New OTA Antenna

Actually been talked about a couple times already. As I noted in one of the discussions, it's still right on the roof line and subject to shading by the roof A/C, etc. There are two truisms on antennas. Height it Might and Size rules all. Higher and bigger is better then lower and smaller.

RE: Long shot, anyone used WA state as home base?

... (yes I know, cancelling voter registration does not guarantee that I won't get selected for jury duty, but it reduces it. I was the presiding juror (foreman) on a criminal trial and I don't want to be the foreman again, because the foreman is the one who has to sign their name to the verdict sheet.) Due to Washington's Motor/Voter law you will once more be both a voter and subject to jury duty in the next cycle, which I think (?) is 2016. A friend, who has never voted nor registered got a jury duty call this fall.

RE: Long shot, anyone used WA state as home base?

RE: Washington DOL and PO Boxes If you "live" in one of the small-towns that have a PO but do NOT do to-the-door mail delivery the Washington DOL will exempt you from the "only mail to street addresses" Well, they also exempt you if you are in one of their "confidential street address" programs. A friend is in one (stalker) and her Drivers License does not even list her street address on it.

RE: Watch CBC videos / shows from USA?

There are a couple web sites that you can use to go through to "de-country"ize your IP. Example so you can watch BBC shows from the US. Do a search for "TV EXPAT" and find one that works for the CBC
