RE: Great camping neighbors

And tried to pay him for gas but he would not accept. Easy way around that - fill it up before you get back to CG.

RE: Blue Ox Ad

How about a link to this, "ad". Can't link to a page in a paper magazine. They could scan it.

RE: Need RV park with cable New Years Eve

Can't help you with a CG - but just pointing out that OK was the favorite in last year's Russell Athletic Bowl :-) Should be a good game.

RE: Electric tongue jacks

I had one on my old trailer (all I could get on one trip when I broke the manual jack), and it was great. One thing - it connected straight to the battery, so I would always pull the fuse for it so nobody would go pushing buttons in our campsite. If I ever get another, I would opt for the one that plugs into your TV's 7 way - that way you don't have to worry about kids playing with it.

RE: Airtight 12v Heavy Duty Aircompressor

I have been using the tankless 12VDC POrtable air compressor (AMAZON-Q Industries MV50) for years even back in my tent camping days... http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51OrkyXicCL._SL500_AA300_.jpg height=300 This is what I carry also - gets TV tires up to 80 in no time.

RE: 2004 3/4 ton Suburban with the Big Block 8.1

driving something empty down the road and getting 10mpg (like I did at Thanksgiving) vs 16 or 17mpg that I MAYBE could get with a 6.0 and 6 speed If you're only get 10 empty on highway, then I doubt you'll get 16-17 with the other. I get 12-13 on highway half empty, depending on whether I drive 70-80 or 80-90.

RE: Useless Park Reviews

One of my favorite parks, but from someone's actual review "The rangers were grumpy and rude. The landscaping was unsightly and in direct sun. People looked unhappy and mad. Kids were crying"

RE: You had close call, scary moment, or accident, towing?

Best advice: My advice: 1. Take your time. If you are in a rush while towing the camper, you're doing something wrong. 2. Begin braking well before you normally would. You need that extra time. 3. Leave a larger than normal gap in front of you. Yes, cars will fill that gap; just slow down and open it up again. See #1. 4. Anything that is hazardous to normal driving (slick roads, etc) is significantly more dangerous when towing. 5. Too little truck = lots less luck. Take it from someone who got away with it for a few years but drove white-knuckled the entire time. Always a nice wind gust away from potential disaster.

RE: CAn a jump starter power an trailer slide out?

I towed it recently for 900 miles even running almost 100 miles per hr most of the time, passing and overtaking cars and SUVS most of the time. My TT is 31 feet and weighs 7,260 pounds. And you had the nerve to call someone an A$$hole in this thread. Troll.

RE: CAn a jump starter power an trailer slide out?

Where are yu?? Need to know so I can be somewhere else. If a need for those brakes occurs, I don't want to be anywhere close!Brakes r fine. they work even if it has no batteries. i've tested them. They are talking the emergency break-away system - which will require a battery to operate as your trailer is not connected to your vehicle anymore and is running loose down the highway. If you think you don't need a battery for this, you should get rid of this trailer ASAP. While I think there are too many frivolous lawsuits in this country, in the event your trailer broke away and you had no battery, every lawsuit against you would be justified - plus jail time for manslaughter if someone were to be killed by this action.

RE: jayfeather toilet issues Poop sitting on some black baffle

4 gallons instead of a couple - and if you're flushing poo, use a good amount of water. And no, I don't want to shake your hand :E

RE: Lost my fee

One time I lost out because my father died - didn't blame the CG. Lost out on another one time because my mother-n-law had emergency heart surgery - didn't blame the CG. One of them offered me to not lose it if I stayed with them within a certain time frame (they kept my money but sent me a voucher with an expiration date). Never got to use it - but that gesture was not in their policy, and was goodwill on their part, and I appreciated it. This place made the same goodwill gesture to you - above and beyond their policy.

RE: Stupid! Stupid! Stupid! Broken Tongue Jack

I did this at a CG entrance with our old camper. Jacked it up to remove the WDH bars (didn't realize you could back up with these on) and forgot to put it back down. At least the CG had been cutting down some trees, and there were logs everywhere. Rolled a large one under the tongue then used the car jack to raise it off the ball. Almost perfectly level. NOTE - take the tongue jack with you to make sure the holes line up. I ended up having to do two trips because of this - first one was wrong, and the only one that matched was an electric. I do miss having that electric jack.
