RE: Rant about Rants

If a post is a long page with no paragraphs, all caps, or no punctuation I don't even bother to read it.I agree - it's just too hard. But, then there is spelling. Some folks apparently don't reread what they wrote. I'm not talking about folks that really don't spell well - I still want to read them, but when it is perfectly obvious that the poster didn't read over what they wrote - then I wonder... Especially in a rant about how to write. :h

RE: Learned something new about camping....

Like you - we have learned to avoid camping under oak trees. We went to CG in Vermont one time that was absolutely FULL of oak trees - couldn't find a spot that wasn't under one. We wondered what they were thinking. :S We left. Rain is loud enough on our aluminum roof. Acorns are worse. Pine cones are downright scary.

RE: Jack Kerouac, How many have even heard of him?

We've actually got him reading "On the Road" on our iPod. I find it pretty hard to read myself.

RE: Found it somewhat rude.

We wait and wait and wait 5-10 minutes, now two more RV's behind me. Nobody honking, every being patient. what fascinates me most of this whole thread is the time. 5-10 minutes. :S we are now down to 5-10 minutes and the whining commences! :R what would the post been worded like if it was 15-20 minutes :BWhat fascinates me is how many times you must respond in this thread to repeat your disagreement with the OP. :R My experience is people don't pull out of their campsite into the road until they are ready to roll. To pull out in front of someone else and stand there for any length of time is definitely somewhat rude.

RE: How often do you buy new trailer?

Bought our first and only (so far) TT in 2003 - 21' Forest River. It does have some water damage now (front window leaked, branch made hole in roof) so we are just going to use it until the "wheels fall off". After that we'll either scrap it or give it away, if someone wants it. At this point, with kids in college, I am kinda sorta thinking about a Truck Camper when our TT finally collapses. I don't buy a lot of stuff... when I buy something, I use it for as long as it will last.We live by this sentiment. ;)

RE: Coach?

We've called each of our RVs "the camper". My aunt and uncle visited us once with their 31' Airstream. I called it a camper and they were visibly distressed and said it was a "coach".

RE: Lift trailer under frame or axle

It depends on what type of axles and frame your trailer has. Best bet is to check in your owner's manual.

RE: Litter Box Ideas

We modified one of our under bed storage locations. We removed the access door and hung curtains, as well as attached a few thin walls around the box area... https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-YawfZnqGkGY/Td49X32zTUI/AAAAAAAABUA/2TJLA1gCpH0/s640/CatBox1.JPG width=600 https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-nd-0irf6LiI/Td49PT3IAOI/AAAAAAAABTw/uKuLmSQ0D3w/s640/CatBox2.JPG width=600

RE: RV Accident US 131 in Michigan

I let up on the throttle a bit next thing I see in the mirror, backend of the trailer about three feet to the left of center. Trucks going straight, a little tap to the brake controller switch and the trailer gets back where it belongs. Sure was happy I had the Hensley Hitch that day.Did anybody catch this post by hddecker? Not picking on you at all hd, just caught the part that your Hensley let the trailer get out of shape. I thought that supposedly wasn't possible?I tow with a Hensley too, yeah.., I did catch that but let it go. No, it is not possible unless something is bending or the shear bolts have let go in which case you'll have a mess on your hands. I'd like to hear how that is possible.I think we should not imply that "hddecker" was seeing things. It's entirely possible -- especially in a low traction condition as might have happened if you're driving in Canada at Christmas time. It the trailer tires lose their ability to generate lateral force, there is nothing to prevent the trailer from swinging to the side -- makes no difference whether towing with a HA/PP hitch or a conventional hitch. When "hddecker" let up on the throttle, the 4-bar linkage might have produced a "bump" event which resulted in the trailer swinging to the side. Even with no "bump", the trailer still can swing if the tire/pavement friction cannot generate sufficient lateral force. Ron Ron, I've read many of your posts and I conceed to you as one who is very knowledgeable on the "workings" of these HA's and PP hitches. My appologies to hddecker as my statement kind'a "called him out" on this one. Even with your explanation Ron I'm still kind'a.., baffeled? In the demonstration Hensley gives in their video, it shows that the Hensley at the trailer end cannot move. However, as an owner of a Hensley, I too am familiar with the "bump" and as I've seen it explained, I do understand that. Hensley will have to perhaps explain that one. Anyway, I do see your point on this.OMG, the bump again. :R I do believe the discussion was about a slippery road and the proof of that was all the vehicles *off* the road a bit further on. This is the important point in Ron's post: It the trailer tires lose their ability to generate lateral force, there is nothing to prevent the trailer from swinging to the side -- makes no difference whether towing with a HA/PP hitch or a conventional hitch.Although I do believe the word force should be replaced with resistance. I have seen more than a few tractor trailers jack-knife right in front of me on I-90 here in PA in the winter. Something must have been wrong with their hitches.

RE: Rt. 287 in PA to Wellsboro

Thanks very much for the responses - 15 it is! Then we'll cut over to 287 below Wellsboro. I'm having to program each step into our GPS... We are planning on staying at Leonard Harrison SP. And yes - we will definitely do the Turkey Path. We did this before - many years ago when the kids were still with us - and we're looking forward to doing it again. :)

Rt. 287 in PA to Wellsboro

Has anyone been on route 287 from Jersey Shore (the town) to Wellsboro? We're not sure if we should go up 287 or take a bit longer and go up 15. Interested in the ease of travel - like are there steep grades or lots of curves... We're going to the Grand Canyon....(of PA). :B

RE: Kumho 857s, pressure?

When we bought our Kumhos there was a chart on Tire Rack that showed different pressures for different rated tires by weight carried. I'm sorry, I haven't been able to find that chart this morning or I would link to it. Our tires max pressure is 65 lbs. The plate on the side of our trailer says 35 lbs. According to that above mentioned chart and as a sort of in-between point I put in 44. Why put in less than on the sidewall? Because the ride is less bouncy and I'm not sure the rims will take that much pressure. We have a TPMS and the trailer tires raise in temperature the same as the truck tires (which also are not aired to the max on the sidewall). Hope this helps...

RE: The ideal GPS route

I don't know of any work-arounds that would help you. And I sure understand your frustration. Every time we use the GPS (which is every time we travel) we can't believe how un-technologically advanced they are. We should be able to talk to it and tell it things - like: Don't tell me when there is a large interchange ahead that I don't want to go on. We'd really like to stay on the road along the lake even if we could save 1 minute by taking a different road. We're pulling into a gas station, so don't worry your pretty little head about recalculating.

RE: 7 pin connector water issue

We use one of these: http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/417A1TQ688L._SY450_.jpg It mounts on the tongue and the plug goes up inside it to keep it out of the weather.

RE: Recall notice

Thanks JJ - we did buy one during that time period at B,B & B and will have to check the model number after the MIL wakes up. She's visiting and I put the heater in the spare room for her. It's been sort of chilly here in NW PA. If ours is one of the units this will be the second time we've learned about a recall that applies to us from rv.net. ...Update... Ours turns out to be a different model # and it doesn't say "Made in China". Whew! :)

RE: Now to Phili

We went to Philly earlier this year. We stayed at Timberlane CG in New Jersey. Very nice CG with lots of room (and hookups) for big rigs and easy access off the highway. We took the train into the city from the Woodcrest station - it was only 6 bucks round trip and it would be 5 bucks to drive over the bridge. They do have lots of parking in the city - there's a big lot right under the visitor area. We took the hop on hop off bus for a couple of days and walked all over the historic part all the way down to the art museum. Not at all scary. We were told not to be there at night though. Edit... Here's a link to a similar thread where we talked about Philly. Maybe it will help...

RE: Why Does Delamination Bother So Many People?

who can name what manf has had the most post about delamKeystone. At least that's what I've gotten from these boards over the last few years. That is one brand I would never own.

RE: Is this fair?

What's funny about this is we've often felt the opposite. We don't take much of the CG's utilities when we stop. But we pay the same as a humongous rig that has 2 air conditioners and/or 2 electric heaters. We have actually thought it would be nice if we paid per foot of RV length. And then there are the folks that say the electric is free so run whatever you can on electric instead of using the propane that we have to pay for... And there are those that light up the entire outside of the rig with lights that run 24/7. Then we thought maybe it would be nice if we were on electric meters. I guess it might be difficult to make it fair... :)

RE: Summer Festivals

Not exactly a town festival, but every year in Saegertown, PA we have what we call "the tractor show". It's put on by our local Pioneer Steam and Gas Engine Society. Folks bring their really cool old equipment and show it off. They have parades, tractor pulls and equipment demonstrations. A few pics to give the idea...
