RE: close call

When I have my tires swapped of our local tire shop, I always watch the "kid" tork the nuts. For that very reason.The garage I worked at way back in the 70s.... It was the old guy who didn't torque the lug nuts correctly and caused a problem for the customer. But the moral is watch if you can. Or check it yourself.

RE: Your Thoughts on Camping with a smaller Travel Trailer

Are there any couples here that camp comfortably and HAPPILY in a smaller TT, say 24'-26"?Ours is even smaller - 23' all together. We wouldn't have it any other way. We wanted the very smallest trailer we could find that had dedicated beds separate from the couch area. We don't even have a slide and we don't find it cramped at all. We spend a lot of time in our trailer as we like to be with our 2 cats when we're not out hiking or exploring. It's all about the floorplan. Is there a bottleneck where 2 people can't pass one another? Can one person be sleeping while the other is reading on the couch? Ask questions that matter to you... We don't feel a camping trailer needs to be as big as an apartment - and we like being together. :)

RE: Where are the women RVers?

Woman here ! I figure out all the stuff, Dh does the towing.Same here. Anything to do with the trailer is my responsibility, while DH maintains our vehicles. I took out and repaired the furnace, put in a new converter and electrical management system, added a heat strip to the A/C, replaced the range vent fan with a quieter one, and lots more. I worked my way through college working at a garage so I know my way around a tool box and I always enjoy the mechanical talk in the forums. I can't usually add to those discussions as everything we own was made in the last century. ;) RV net has been a wonderful resource for me and I'm always telling DH something I learned here. Also - I'm happy to see there are so many women here - men can't have all the fun!

RE: Who knew?

I have a #3 "Erie" scotch bowl (from the late 1800s), which didn't make sense at first, because a #8 lid would fit it. After googling around, I landed on that exact same site, which explained it.. It's about the size of the bottom (fitting in a wood stove), not the top. https://scontent-sea1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xaf1/t31.0-8/331103_10150951299262134_714808090_o.jpg width=640I've got one just like that with a "3" but mine is Wagner - and I live in Erie. ;) Thanks OP for the info!

RE: Found a definite cure for mice...

I recently got a cat, haven't had pets here for many years. I visited my farmer buddy that had a litter and some teenager cats hanging around. I took one of the teenagers and this cat is an absolute predator. She will bring trophies back, almost daily. I came home from work today, her and the three kittens had dined on a bird (feathers were all that was left). Among her favorites, besides mice, are rabbit, chipmunk, and squirrel.Gasp. Outdoor cats are responsible for millions of songbird deaths in North America each year.

RE: Broken down on side of HWH 71 in Ohio

Just to have this clarified... Is your insurance paying the repair bill? I also want to add my congrats that you all are alive and safe!

RE: Odd comments

Neighbor came to see our new tt when we brought it home. She commented how homey it looked with the "real "looking" appliances. She was shocked when I told her they actually were "real"That is funny! We often get asked if the top pops up on our trailer or if we can stand up inside (DH is 6'2").

RE: Health Care Costs

Meanwhile... This Health care-insurance firm Aetna announced a $37 billion agreement Friday to acquire smaller rival Humana in a deal that continues the rapid consolidation in the U.S. health care industry. Must be pretty lucrative...

RE: We've got a puzzle - 1986 Bronco II --- UPDATE

We had it in to our local garage and they found the EGR valve was totally clogged with carbon. After changing that out and cleaning things up it ran well except at idle. We asked if the ECM had given any codes and they said they weren't able to communicate with the ECM. :h Anyway - we put in a new ECM and all is well now. So I guess it was 2 problems - EGR valve and ECM. Thanks much to all who tried to help.

RE: What would you do?

It's not OK imo. I'd have gone postal if you were my wife or daughter.My DH responded similarly when I told him about this. As far as what would I do - I think I would report the activity to whoever is in charge. Unisex facilities have become quite common in Europe. I'm just sayn!Are we talking showers or just restrooms? ...since when has it become acceptable for men to be in women's shower facilities? ...Never.I agree. And I sure hope it won't become the norm.

RE: Former or Inactive members

What about Steve,I forgot his last name, but he had a couple Arctic Foxes and wrote about his travels in Alaska? Loved to read about his adventures.. B>O.Think you're talking about Steve Rankin - I really miss him too. Loved his dirty trailer picture taken up at the Arctic Circle. :)

I don't know what the term for it would be, but I do know that certain vehicles do a good job of sucking in the exhaust from the rear. My dad's station wagon would do that when the rear window was open. Our SUV does that when the rear window is open. We don't drive with the rear window open. Not sure if this is what you are talking about.... :)

RE: Paying for two sites

Has anyone ever paid for two sites so they would be assured of some privacy or more room? At our favorite CG some of non electric sites are a bit close together so we will pay for two sites just wondering if anyone else does this.We've stayed at state parks in PA, NY, MD, and VA in the past few years and every one of them specifically state the minimum number of occupants as 1. If VT state parks allow this I am surprised as well as disheartened because if it can be done under the rules, then all sorts of "all about me" folks will certainly do it.

RE: RV'ing the way we like it..peace and quiet

Sounds great, but I have a few questions... How exactly are you doing an area search for the "small, privately owned campgrounds" -- CG book, RV Park Reviews, software? Then what do you mean by going to "local venues" and asking about what is available -- asking around at some sort of event? TIA

RE: Presque Isle, PA

Presque Isle... It is free to get into - there is no camping in the park. There are a bunch of really nice beaches and hiking trails, as well as a paved walking/bike trail. It is not a tourist trap and it is never so busy that it is uncomfortable. There's not much to spend money on unless you want to rent a canoe, a bike, or a Segway. We think it's beautiful.

RE: One of the good things.

Yep... Last week our dishwasher in the house broke. No dishwasher in the camper, but I did borrow the dish drainer. And then I ran out of dishwashing liquid and had to bring that in too. All back to normal now and all restocked. :)

RE: We've got a puzzle - 1986 Bronco II --- UPDATE

Sounds to me like your timing chain may have jumped a cog. There very well could be more than one thing going on here. Thanks... I sort of doubt that (hopefulness here) as it is a newish Jasper Engine. As for draining the gas - we did that and then found non-ethanol gas in town to put in it and it still runs cruddy. Even with the Lucas gas treatment. So - we think we're going to take it back to the garage and just tell them to fix it. It will be interesting to find out what it is as we have 2 classic vehicles stored in the barn that start up perfectly a few times a year - with some pretty old gas with stabil. Not to mention a tractor that sits most of the year only being used for snow removal. And Geeze - not to mention our tow vehicle that sits for 7 months a year. (Although the last 2 have carburetors that we clean with Gumout once in a while.) The good thing about this is we found a somewhat local station that sells the non-ethanol gas at 91 octane. Definitely going to use that in our power equipment.
