RE: Photo program for Windows 8

I second "Irfan View" for a simple easy to use photo editing program. The tool to resize photos is very easy to use. Best part is it's free just google it. Also use "Photobucket" to post photos on sites like this one.

RE: 5th Wheel Towing with 4X4 Ram

First question is did you set the trailer down on the truck? Rams are built with their butts up in the air, but once you put the load on the truck it will be level. That will fix the 2 1/2 inches in the rear and 6 inches in the front. with Some folks think they need air bags and that messes up the whole Dodge idea. You want a minimum of 6-8 inches from the truck bed to the underside of the trailer so there you will have to adjust the hitch and maybe even the pin on the trailer. That you will have to play with to get that 6-8 and also to get the trailer level. My trailer is still a hair high in the front but not noticeably and tows fine. My 3500 is a dually but also has oversize tires on it so you should be able to get a stock truck level as well as the trailer level. If all else fails then you may have to flip the axles on your trailer if they have not been done. As you can see below I am fairly level and believe me this is a tall truck lol lol http://i479.photobucket.com/albums/rr154/steelpony5555/securedownload.jpg

RE: Undercarriage Fabric Repair on TT

Gorilla duct tape.....But I would be worried maybe the suspension is allowing the tires to come in contact with the floor... I have wondered too about that spray rubber coating you see advertised on TV where the guy sprays a screen door and floats it....once you get it patched maybe spray the area with that....

RE: What's everyone using to remove mal ware?

Hmmmm pretty much a matter of opinion. It all depends on who you're talking too if it is good or not. There are just as many sites saying it is good as there are bad just like any of these programs. I have use MSE on previous computers and now Windows Defender with my windows 8.1. I have never had any major problems with it and they always seem to work fairly well. Is it the best??? who knows.... But it along with one or two of the other free programs have kept mine up and running cleanly. Kinda like when Windows 8 came out and every body was running around saying bout what a terrible OP system it was??? Well sorry but if you learn about it I think it is fantastic. I hate to even use an old machine now. Also these are anti spyware programs too, for free anti virus then Avast is one of the better freebies.

RE: What's everyone using to remove mal ware?

I have used Windows Defender or Microsoft Security Essentials, and then Superantispyware and Malwarebytes for years. This combo has kept my system clean and running fine. Even when I get a bad bug, this combo although free, has found and killed it. I agree too that Norton and McAfee are virus in themselves. Just try to get them deleted off your machine... Dang near impossible. PS If you have a pre Windows 8 OS use Microsoft Security Essentials. If you have a Windows 8 machine then MSE will not work on it but Windows Defender has been updated to be equivalent to MSE.

RE: Good Eats in Las Vegas

I agree the buffets are the place to go...fairly reasonable and lots of choices. Now if you go to the one at the Bellagio it will be a little on the pricey side but that is because it is all gourmet food. DO NOT compare casino buffets with Golden Corral or the likes...there is no comparison. We also like the one at Main Street Station.

RE: Covered parking during storm

You are stressing and worrying over something that may or may not happen and if it does you can't do nothing about it except look for cover at that time. We get warnings all the time and in fact they say Sunday in Texas looks to be fun... But it may not happen and if it does it may not happen right here. That's why we have insurance. If you are caught out in it and it does happen look for any overpass or gas station etc, that's about all you can do. Until then quit worrying and keep on truckin.....

RE: Decals peeling ???

Our 2001 fifth does not have any peeling of the decals. My guess is the product changed to less quality. chevman Yeah but you have an Alpenlite lol lol....kinda wish I had kept mine cause the graphics on it were perfect, shoulda bought another Alpenlite lol lol.... It does seem most of the big RV manufactures are using cheap graphics and some have been for a while now. That includes some of the higher end rigs like my Montana??? Sad thing is it happens so much that they have to know that their graphics are terrible but they do nothing about it.....

RE: Break-away required???

Hmmmmm,, What would be a good reason for not having a break away???? Especially something so simple since you're already doing all the prep to flat tow the vehicle anyways. That is unless you are just hookin a tow bar and going without any brakes or lights etc... I for one, sure wouldn't want to be responsible for a trailer/vehicle coming loose, and they do, and instead of it coming to a screeching halt it keeps on rolling and crosses a median into on coming traffic???

RE: I want to tow a 4 door pickup with a bike loader and bike

I have seen several trucks towed with bikes or golf carts in the bed. Most have been Chevy's....

RE: No heat in northern home all winter.

Hmmmm maybe you should sell the 5000 sq ft home with the 10 bedrooms and get a smaller house?????? Holy Crp $4000 is a lot even for the bad winter y'all just had especially if set at 50 degrees. Maybe you left a window open?? But for real houses don't fare well with no heat at all. Drywall gets damp, paneling warps, tile will pop off etc. Maybe spend some money and winterize your home better to get the heat bill down. Or since you are only living in it part time it may be time to sell and downsize to a smaller home.
