RE: What is the dumbest thing you have seen while on the road?

The dumbest I've seen was just a couple of months ago on our return from Maryland. On an interstate in West Virginia, a woman in a van passed me on a steep hill while I was in the truck (slow,right) lane. My lane was running out and the arrows and merge left sign were obvious but the dummy in the van was determined to pass and forced her way around me which in turn forced me onto the right shoulder so far I almost hit the guard rail. It was either the shoulder or the fool would have hit my MH in the side. Glad the shoulders on interstates are wide. JMO, but 2 faults here. The woman forcing her way & seeing that the lane was going to end why didn't you close the door on her before she got next to you? I hate the dawdlers who waste time & space where there is a passing lane, but if I see that they are coming up on me slowly & my lane is ending their new view will be the back of me. I am not going on the shoulder because they are too lazy to turn off the cruise control & zip zround me. By the time I saw the van in my door mirror she was already passing the rear of the MH. Since the road (as I said earlier) was extremely steep there was no question of "cutting her off" so I don't accept any fault for her stupidity. If you've ever driven a MH up a mountain then you should know that speeding up to "close the door" on someone is virtually impossible and at best a stupid idea. It would only invite a collision.

RE: Mice! Anybody tried a game cam to track them?

We are fortunate to have a garage for our MH but that will NOT stop mice. I always have a couple of cats around my property and I have NEVER had the first problem with mice in our MH or anywhere on the property for that matter. In fact, the cats are so proud of themselves, occasionally they'll leave a dead mouse, shrew, etc. on the patio for me !!

RE: Service unavailable

Time Warner has a nationwide outage of its internet service starting last Wednesday due to what they called "human error" during maintenance. I've had a very hard time just getting to the net and email, etc. I'm going to drop into my local TWC office tomorrow and chew some rear-ends.

RE: Golf cart

I had a used 3 year old electric Club Car and kept it for over ten years. Only had to replace the batteries once. I paid $1200 for it and the charger plus it was very dependable but underpowered. I just bought a new customized gas EZ Go for $4K and it runs great and only requires a plug, oil change and air filter change once in awhile and is much faster and powerful than my old electric: plus it is a four passenger. If your intention is to use your cart in rv parks/campgrounds I suggest an electric as many places will NOT permit gas powered carts because of the noisy engine.

RE: great spot without a car?

In March your going to have to go at least to Orlando Florida or further south to be guaranteed warm temps. Any further north and it's going to be cool even during daytime.

You're going to have to look at all of them and then decide what meets your needs based on what you wrote.

RE: 1 way RV Class A Rentals. Having difficulty.Need help please

If it's something to do with training and especially if your department is paying for the training, they should furnish transportation. If you have to pay for it yourselves (6 guys?), then rent a big van and split the one way cost. It should run about $700 for a one-way full size van rental from Jacksonville, Florida to NY or Boston. I rented one from southern Ky to Miami, Florida for $685 this June one way. I also had to rent one to get the family back to Ky but the return one-way in the SAME size vehicle was only $159. Good luck

RE: Map on your dining table?

I use an Atlas and my gps. DW likes to keep a neat kitchen so I don't think she'd go for it. Good idea though.

RE: Coachman issue

I can sympathize with you but as an "old" rv'er since the early 90's I can tell you that once you sign on the dotted line and they have your money, the dealers don't ever want to see you again unless it's for service. Sounds like these guys made sure you'd have to come back for repairs. Good luck...

Yeah, if Hanks was more physically imposing he could have been the next John Wayne with a sensitive side.

RE: Southwest US trip ideas

I just remembered your thinking of renting an rv and my advice is don't because as you said, that'll buy a lot of gas. Since your truck has the power to pull the TT over the mountains you're good to go; just make sure your brakes are in good order. Even if you get near the MAJOR national parks there are places you can stay and park for a time so reservations are not needed unless you want them. We've been to Y'stone, G.Canyon, etc. WITH reservations but we stayed for at least a week on those occasions. On the trip I just mentioned, I was able to find places to park the MH for as long as we intended to stay with no real difficulty. We even found a place to park and visit Yosemite after circling the village lot one time. I thought that would be impossible but it worked. With a bit of planning and the ability to adapt you can have a great time like we did.

RE: Southwest US trip ideas

We made a trip similar from Kentucky a few years ago. We went across Missouri to Colorado and Pike's Peak, then Utah to the national parks there. From there into Nevada across the Extraterrestrial Highway which led us into California at Yosemite. We spent a good deal of time in Yosemite but it's very crowded and traffic is bad in summer months. From there we went into San Francisco to the Golden Gate Bridge and up I5 to Redwood National Park. Then we crossed into Oregon and visited the Pacific. Crossed at Grant's Pass but missed Crater Lake. After this we drove into Washington to Mt. St. Helens which I'd wanted to see for 20 years. After this we crossed Idaho and drove up into Alberta then back down into Montana and Yellowstone. We stopped at many other interesting sites I didn't list to save time but you'll pick your own stops. I made no campground reservations because you can never be sure where you'll be from day to day. But when we did want to stay overnight I had no problem finding a campground no matter the state. It was something of a whirlwind trip but I had a plan while moving so quickly. We now know which places we want to see in the future and stay longer so next time we'll be making reservations and seeing even more.

RE: Just Have To Vent, Thank You ...............

I know how you feel. It always bugs me when a campground/resort says they have a million tv channels and you're lucky to get half a dozen.

RE: Golf Cart

I always remove and store batteries indoors where there is heat during the cold months and keep them on a trickle charger. I had to keep my cart outside also but I covered it and built an overhang to shield it from the weather as much as possible. In my travels I've seen dozens of carts parked in the elements and many of them look terrible: tires all flat, stained torn seats, paint ruined, etc. A little effort can protect them and it sounds like you're doing the best you can.

RE: A peeve of mine.

I also will move over IF there is someplace to move to safely. I get my revenge when I blow all the rv tailgaters off the road when I drive my Corvette though.

RE: toilet paper

What's toilet paper? (Figured the question was as germane as the current answers).
