RE: HELP - stripped interior screws

You might try those wing nut thingy's that go in and spread open, also there are plastic ones that you insert and the screw spreads the plastic out to hold, another way would be to cut a thin piece of plywood the length of the blind top and screw it to the studs, then attach the blind to that

RE: Question 2 - Should wind affect a good set up truck

I was once driving a 31 fl. MH from getting it gassed up, back to the dealer for delivery, I got one blast of wind that actually lifted one side of the MH up and luckily I got it back down on all wheels before it went over on it's side. As stated slow down and drive slower better to get home later than not at all.

RE: U-Haul got it right

Wife rented one of the small enclosed trailers to move her Mother from Ohio to Fla. She pulled it with a Ford Escape and never had a problem, pulled really nice and said she had to keep looking back to make sure it was still there.

RE: Fuel Discount

I have never had a problem gassing up at Flying J sometimes I have to wait my turn, just as those behind me have to wait theirs, and I do appreciate the discount at the pump especially with the Elite discount of .7 cents a gallon.

RE: Die mice!

the non-expanding foam works pretty good at sealing the holes and it does not expand and have to be trimmed..

RE: cracking

I would at the very least file a claim about them. This could help getting them repaired down the road. X2 that is what the warranty is for...

RE: ? "Best" Coffee Maker?

Electric sometimes, but fav is a pot, bring water to a boil, throw lots of grounds in, let settle and drink (Navy coffee)plus never, never wash the coffee cup, it needs to build up a patina like a good pipe.

RE: Getting a replacement key

First thing I always do is get a couple of spares, just in case, plus I have a spare in the truck. I usually go to ACE and get mine. I did go to a locksmith for one because it was entirely different type of key. ( lock had been changed by the former owner)

RE: OK, this is weird. Our TT is haunted?

I had a friend that bought a MH from a widow, He swore the thing was haunted. He would find money where none was before, he also had different problems with the MH , nothing big just small things and blamed them on Arthur (the deceased owner) and even called the MH after the owners name.

RE: I's gots a rants ....

I do not squeak as I drink WD 40 with my coffee every morning Everyone hollers about the price of gas, but Diesel does the hauling and that is why shipping has gone up so high (my opinion)

RE: Suncoast hwy tolls

I don't believe it is a scammer as it is for such a small amount of money. They don't usually pick on visitors, you might have missed one of the toll booths along the route. I did not to long ago and got a love letter. I sent the money in. They will suspend your drivers license for non-payment.

RE: How do you get a a canoe on your truck?

I Welded a rack together that slides into the truck bed and strap the canoe on top. If I am not pulling the RV I have a bed extender that slides into the receiver and adds several feet to the length of the bed and the canoe fits right on and is strapped down.

RE: Why we luv our rig

We have had all kinds over the years, Pop up is my favorite but medical caused us to get rid of the PUP and we bought a new Coleman pull behind CTS 16 FB. There are two of us and 3 chihuahuas , we have a bathroom, queen bed and all the essentials we need plus some extras. I have made quite a few mods. It is dry, warm in the winter, cold in the summer and has a toilet. That is all we want is to be comfortable and bug free here in the South..

RE: Am I the only one bothered by a pet charge at RV parks?

It is up to you to stay or not.. Fla. None in my area do charge, I usually stay at the State Campgrounds anyway and they do not charge. If you do not want to pay then stay at one that doesn't charge.

RE: Does the Air Force rent Travel Trailers?

I know the Navy does and probably the other services too. I worked at Rec Svcs after retirement and took care of over 350 pcs of equipment including RV's, fishing packages, utility trailers, mowers etc. Plus tents etc. You need to be retired or active duty.

RE: Building a deck out of logs

I think the deck should be made out of pressure treated lumber or deck boards. If you use PT lumber do not leave a gap when screwed down, as the decking will shrink and leave a gap, if you do leave a gap it will entirely too wide when the boards shrink. Above ground probably does not need to be treated if painted, or stained..
