RE: Purchase a hail damaged rig?

For me it would depend on how bad the hail damage is, I would check really close for damage, it may cost more to repair than the savings, also Will it still have manufacturer's warranty ? (if it is a new unit)

RE: Getting sick of campgrounds

Fla. state parks that we visit have been clean and quiet for a long time, I hardly ever have any trouble getting my favorite site /s I do reserve at least two weeks in advance and we like going during the week so it is mostly quiet. Recently visited Oak Mountain S.P. in Al. and it was well maintained, clean, and quiet, and not packed also the folks were friendly. I noticed that most of the CG's that ya'll talk about are up north so maybe that is the difference.

RE: How far do you travel per day?

300 miles is my max. or 7-8 hours which depends on the traffic. When younger I used to travel 500-600 but time has caught up with me, also I have learned to slow down so I can see the sights. In other words "stop and smell the roses)

RE: Low Life On The Prowl

If you must shoot, (and I would) use a shotgun better chance of hitting esp. with buckshot, especially in the dark. It's a darn shame that people are to sorry to work but thinks they have a right to steal what you have worked for. I hope you find out who it is..However if reported the law enforcement should be able to check the local pawn shops etc. plus it could be happening elsewhere in the area too

RE: How about another "Cooler" question

I made reflitex covers for my coolers using aluminum tape to hold everything together, I have used one for a 7 day canoe trip and had ice when we got to the landing, for the TT we bought a portable ice maker and use it with one of the covered coolers and really love it, makes 21 lbs of cubes a day.

RE: O'Reilly's Auto Parts.

I had something similar happen to me, I had just got out of the hosp from my upper neck operation, we stopped at Wally World, when we came out I had a flat tire and it was raining, I was sliding under the truck to get the spare and a young man asked if i needed help,I told him" sure could", he changed the tire and asked how much I owed him and he replied "nothing, my wife would whup me if i took any money, she noticed you might need help and told me to stop and help" "I stuffed $10.00 in his pocket and told him she did not have to know" but yes it does give you a good feeling that there are people who will take the time and effort to assist a total stranger (and I might say old man in need.

RE: New tongue jack

The first thing I did when I got mine home was to remove the manual jack and install electric jack that I purchased from Harbor Freight before unhooking it for the first time. The jacks are pretty much universal and most dealers carry them and they are inexpensive, usually 3 bolts removes and installs them, I leave mine hooked up to the truck to replace them.

RE: Windows 10 - Anniversary Edition?

I agree with ng2951, I know several people,including a brother in law and my son who went to win 10 and hate it. Typical of Microsoft, they have always put out products and let the public beta test them (at their own expense) (my opinion) I will keep my win7

Gas went up at Flying J / Pilot in Dothan by 10 Cents a gallon to 1.89.9. I got gas this am. Thank goodness for the Elite discount of 7 cents a gallon I paid 1.72.9 a gallon

RE: What did I just find in my rig?

For mice I use the sticky pads, they cannot get off them, I usually put a small dab of peanut butter in the center. Looks like you might have a few more as it looks like a birthing nest.. and it does look like oven insulation..Good luck on eradicating the little pests.

RE: 1st Camper- Differences between brands question

Each TT model has it's own unique features and different models are designed for different uses. #1 one on your list should be what are going to tow it with, #2 then how are you going to use the RV, such as long distances, weeks at a time or just an occasional weekend adventure, #3 is how much will your budget allow. Most manufactures have units from entry level to "the sky is the limit". Decide what you want, then take the time to look at the many units and compare them Also the dealer is really important because his repair shop will probably be the one you ask for assistance and to repair any problems you might encounter and, most unit do end up with problems from small to large (just as a new vehicle)

RE: XHose for Water Supply

Do not waster your money, we bought one and it blew up, traded for #2 and it blew up, finally got our monry back, no questions asked, seems that three different neighbors had the same problem so we all are using real hoses...

RE: Wildlife

Probably was a squirrel, they are famous for chewing on things. They are good to make a pot of squirrel and dumplings.

RE: Perplexed As To What To Call It But "30SecondsToCamper"

I will stick with my TT and / or a Eureka 4 man tent,with Coleman air mattress I always use the tent and 20' tarp for canoe camping and both of them together did not cost what that thing does and I will bet my kit is more comfortable.
