RE: Can I just brag for a moment?

I needed to know this.

RE: Don't idle your loud diesel at 5am for so long!!

At the golden nugget cg in anchorage whil walking the dogs early, there were several diesals happily making noise and fumes for about fourty minutes. I asked an owner why and the reply was it took that much time to charge the air tank. Now if the high dollar mh mfg wanted to support the green agenda, you think they would simply put in a larger air comp or run it off the engin battery

RE: Saftey Chains on Tow Dolly

Do tow dollies have brakes actuated when the car comes off the dolly
traveylin 10/27/14 11:30am Class A Motorhomes

Definition of a good tow vehicle depends on two questions. 1 only you can spec out your personal requirements. ie two seat/4 seat, 2 wheel/4 wheel dr, auto/std, off road/hwy, crv/pickup/sedan, etc. Next 2 identify how complex a toad hookup is desired. It can be done in 3 minutes or 30 minutes. Simplest described by a light weight 4 wheel drive that shifts simplely to neutral transfer case, steering wheel that does not lock, std tow bar with no aux brakes. Complex would be a dolly/trailer step up heavy enough for aux brakes and all the tiedown requirement. I would prefer to buy an almost new used to have a wider selection

RE: Rest Stop vs. The Hills Have Eyes

If there is any size to your rig, turning around can be a real issue. Would not do it at night or without an assured turnaround. pops

RE: Windshield

the big windshield is a magnet for rocks. I average a chip every 4 thousand miles. I keep a repair kit on board to repair very quickly. I like the kit sold by Walmart in the windshield wiper area. Replaced one time, my deductible was 500$. pops

RE: 2011 ford v10 air filter

the air filter is a specialty configured for the motor home chassis and is not clearly identified. I had to physically measure and compare to the two/three different described for the v=10 use. When you id the right one make sure you buy two. pops

RE: Gaudy colored and striped RV's

A couple years ago, I pulled into a 59 south gas station when I came out with the requisite fried chicken I saw the most over the top decorated Class A rv with a crowd of folks standing around it taking pictures. It was the Girls Gone Wild RV, well decorated with their art. Every other decoration scheme could be considered tepid. pops

RE: A toyota sienna toad

I have a 2011 seinna and would not consider towing 4 down. I tried to put it on a dolly but the wide track wheel placement would not fit a std dolly either. Any thing can be done...some things are done better. Need to get a recognized toad with mfg endorsement. pops

RE: Getting out of an extended warranty?

As you point out the hourly shop rate is 107 $. But warranty work is negotiated both on the number of hours to do a task and the hourly raate is less than half. When you check in to get work done, your priority will always be last, least , non existant. pops

RE: I'm still convinced these people are crazy.

Looking forward to our last sticks and bricks, after 6 years of being on the road with a class a, I will likely do a cash purchase to avoid mortgages and burocrates from telling me how much insurance to buy. I win two ways. Insurance cost for a waterfront or coastal house easily gets to a thousand dollars a month, that can go to zero. Secondly because of the absurd insurance requirement, the outright purchase price is seriously discounted. Cash has value Popo

RE: I'm looking for a 2004-2006 Dingy Vehicle,

Consider what you will use it for when not a toad, which except for full timers is the majority of the time. I needed a pickup to use hauling stuff around the house and selected a 2012 canyon four whel drive. Lite,no aux brakes, button to transfer case to neutral, no reqt for key in ignition to unlock steering, holds four adults comfortably and has a good pu bed to haul construction material, appliances, and pulls a boat trailer well. Figure out your use before shopping. Pops

RE: pet fees?

Soooo, does this mean if a pet fee is charged, I do not have to pick up the poop???

RE: Pulling breaker when towing.

Pulling the brake fuse releases the emergency brake and allows it to roll freely

RE: Full time clay shooters / reloaders.

Bad experience with reload. A misfire blew the shot out of the barrel but not the wad, which obstructed the barrel. Next shot blew apart the barrel with fragments hitting an adjacent shooter. Best guess was crimping the plastic case was not complete allowing the powder to absorb water and decay. I do not reload anymore

RE: 20K and 2.5 yr fight secures a win over HOA for RV parking

I am confused...is this about Home owners associations or zoning ordinances. Two separate topics..

RE: Fresh Water Always Reads Full

The fresh water tank is translucent and I can see the actual level from the inspection port for the pump. Grey and black are emptied based on number of days of service. Panel Indicators are not used at all. pops

RE: Tow bar lubrication

On the blue ox I have, rubber boots cover the shafts and are sealed at both ends. To lubricate, the tie wrap at one end is cut, boot compressed to lubricate shaft, and boot reattached with new tie wrap. Not much probability of dirt contamination. Just do not use a hammer to adjust. pops

RE: dinghy tire wear

No conclusive evidence but I do believe that the front tires of my toads have worn faster than normal usage, during the 30000 miles of towing. Not an issue because I will cycle off tires on a toad 50% faster than normal street usage. I really do not want a tire failure on a toad. pops

RE: RV Ovens, hate them, love them, or just meh?

It really takes two people and a blowtorch to get the pilot lite submissive completed and turn on the main gas. Mine is so safe it will never get above room temperature. If any one figures out how to get down on the floor, looking under the burner, hold a lit butane match lite under the pilot, while holding in the gas burner knob in best position without looking, seeing the 1/8 inch pilot come on and turning the oven gas on,,,,easily I would like a full description of their technique. Best part of this is I do not have to use oven cleaner. pops
