RE: Is it always something?

Look at it this way, all the crazy frustrating stuff that happens this trip, will be funny stories to talk about around the campfire on the next trip. Which means there's always something to talk about. It's all about perspective

RE: Looking to purchase 1973 Terry...Newbie questions

For all we know this may be a great buy. That old, it may already have been restored or repaired to a great extent. In other words, we'd need to know a LOT more before giving any advice whatsoever. A lot more about the trailer and a lot more about the tow vehicle. In general though, yeah, that's an old trailer with lots of potential issues. A lot will also depend on your intended usage.

RE: Power tongue jack measurements

I have the Husky Brute 4500. You won't be sorry. It's the only one I'd recommend currently

RE: Opus Inflatable Pop Up -- pretty clever!

Very interesting. I'd be worried about a valve leaking and waking up to the tent laying across me though. Haha. Easier to do a field expedient repair on a pole than an air tube

RE: 1999 Palomino Mustang Canvas Help

White vinegar and water. The stains themselves may never fully come out. The mold will die and stop spreading though

RE: Card games, board games what do you play?

We like dominoes and liars dice. If you want to try something really different try Mexican Train and Shut the Box. Both can be found in most toy stores or Walmart

RE: Legend Television

On both of my TVs, there is a way to deselect any or all of the inputs. Go to your settings all search around for inputs and make sure your HDMIs are selected. If it has that option anyway. I don't own that brand, but most TVs are made very similar these days.

RE: opportunity to purchase

That's going to cost quite a bit to fix, just in materials if I understand the damage. I might grab it for parts to fix up a structurally sound one, but that's it. And in the condition you describe, it'd have to be free.

RE: Hybrid like Folding Trailers still popular in Australia

I would love to see those "pop top" trailers in person. Why not just go with a regular height TT? Is saving that 2 feet that big of a deal? The style of having the sleeping pop out UNDER the end cap is great. Helps to protect the canvas from sun and rain. It's hard to tell really, but they look a tad higher than standard to me. And besides towing ease and storage, I bet it cuts down on weight. Downside is more moving parts to break. But they're not complicated parts

RE: Hybrid like Folding Trailers still popular in Australia

I love those. Wish we had more like that here in the U.S. And I happen to like the white interiors too. The dark colors everything comes in here are just that, dark. I much prefer the brightness of those interiors

RE: Trac-Grabber

I don't think these are marketed to replace chains. Nor do I think the OP meant that. What I think is they are another viable tool to carry should you find yourself in a bad way. I play in the snow and mud and lot. I wouldn't mind trying these.

RE: What does 10 TRILLION gallons of water even equate to?

So it rains a lot in Ca this year (not the worst year by far by the way), and that equates to global warming? The problem we have is related to our ability to build on land that floods every so often on fairly predictable cycles. And our lack of wanting to spend money on fixing or maintaining infrastructure. And the very fact that we build at all, especially dams, creates problems with where all that water goes and how it gets there. We do need the dams and reservoirs. We need more in fact. But we need to realize that maintaining them comes at a price. Same with roads. They're all built on dirt. And when that dirt gets saturated after prolonged dryness, it tends to move. If you're old enough, and lived in Ca all that time, you'd remember this happening before. Twice in my lifetime.

RE: Where to do a 30# propane exchange

Where I live, Amerigas will do a recertification (likely all you need), but if it fails, they'll give you new tanks the same size at a discounted rate. JS West propane will do a free replace, but I don't believe they're up in your area.

RE: Time to downsize, Time to simplify

2017 Rockwood 1970ESP pop-up on order! Congrats! I love those. I'm looking at that same model except in the larger size.

RE: The 300 foot rule -- do they mean what they say?

Stop worrying about hurting the land. Your vehicle just won't do it. Most of the Sierras are logged. We clear huge areas, create roads, and do what looks like devastation. But I'm here to tell you that when abandoned, most of these areas regrow and only someone who knows what to look for would see it. It takes a lot to permanently alter the earth. A LOT. It speaks to man's ego to think driving on some dirt or grass will do real damage. In fact, in most cases, it's actually kinda healthy for the ground to be disturbed. Like walking on grass. You do it enough in a repeated pattern, it causes damage. Do it sporadically in random areas, it can actually be healthy

RE: Interesting tidbits from RVTravel

RE: Building & Installing my BBQ Table

I love it. Very nice. And IF you ever worried about grease or heat, you could always glue a square of diamond plating or similar to the side of the trailer

RE: Video Tour of the T@B S Trailer

Very cool. I'm now following on Instagram. My ol'lady won't even consider full timing, let alone full timing so minimalist. I'm jealous. So I'll live vicariously through your IG page!
