RE: A-Fib

Took warfrin/coumaden for 4-5 years and the monthly blood test was a very necessary pain in the butt. Wears out veins in the stick needle activity. The doc switched me to Pradaxa 3 years ago and am happy as a clam now. No monthly lab work. pops

RE: Stopping at Liard Hot Springs

Thanks for the accessibility comments it sounds very doable. Discoloration is a nonissue as she will use her spare/old braces. Metal/concrete stair sounds very good Thanks a bunch pops

RE: Towed vehicle breakaway events?

I had a boat trailer come off the hitch because I had not locked it down and the safety chains did a very good job of controlling the trailer till I stopped. In the case of base plates breaking away the 2-3 reports I have seen are related to uni-body construction and workharding of the sheet metal. Having the safety chains attached to uni-body sheet metal did not provide much help. Use a toad with a true frame and attach the safety cables to it for peace of mind. pops

RE: Towmax Tires - Another One Bites the Dust !

Trailer designated tires do not have the capacity to match the performance of good vehicle tires. I never use them. pops

RE: Stopping at Liard Hot Springs

Can someone describe the access to the hot springs from a handicap perspective. She can scooter from the parking lot through the board walk if there are no step or obstructions. She can go down stairs with braces on if the steps are not too slippery, and the water entrance to steps reaches the bottom. We will be there in about 3 weeks pops

RE: Your Torque Wrench?

Actually the most accurate indication of torque is achieved by using indicator bolts, where a small hole is drilled the length of the bolt and a rod inserted and tack welded on one end. A caliper is used to measure the stretch of the bolt as it is tightened. Torque wrenches do not account for the variable friction on the threads and flange face do to lube or dissimilar metals. Harbor Freight is my supplier of torque wrenches pops

RE: TX state inspection & being out of state for the next year

Back when I traveled 90% of the time internationally for work, I did not bother to get an international drivers permit. My Texas drivers license was recognized where ever I went in the middle east and far east. I was stopped several times driving but never had a problem due to Texas drivers license. New York is a state, Texas is a country. pops

RE: Electrical Shock!!

I had a friend touch the aluminum door frame of his camper and was immediately electrocuted...dead.. Any ground should be cause for concern as the difference between a tickle and a death is simply the path taken (through the heart). Grounds do occur as a result of wires rubbing on edges as the vehicle vibrates down the road as well as improper wiring. pops

RE: Small Pickups Coming Back?

Bought a 2012 Colorado 4x4 as my current Toad. Its a great application weighing in at just 4100 lbs and very simple to attach/detach. I have towed a 25 foot travel trailer with it a thousand miles. Carries all my stuff when not rving. pops

RE: SS Disability Amount after age 65?

My wife paralyzed 90% in both legs since polio age 3 months requested SSD at age 52. She did not have the ability to work the required 8? quarters to meet the minimum for SSD. The rejection letter she got said she was too disabled to meet the SSD disability criteria. I checked and sure enough that is what the law requires. Go figure.... pops

RE: Dumping tanks- Waiting lines

I just do not wait in lines very well. On the road home I would pull into an available park, RV park etc. Trick is to keep enough free capicity for the DW to use until I get there

RE: Dumping tanks- Waiting lines

In five years with 450 days on the road, I have never seen a line of 10-12 campers waiting on the poop shoot. Sounds like an eastern state tradition. pops

RE: Yellowstone

The day after Labor day and the two weeks following. Summer time crowds are gone and the campgrounds are still open in large part. You may get 1-2 nights of 30 degree temp due to the elevation but that's great for leaf colors. pops

RE: Helped a fellow RVer..

I am surprised the tires lasted as long as they did. Mine had chunks missing after a half mile. pops

RE: Disabled Rates at Campgrounds

The disabled are interested in access, not necessarily equal, as that would eliminate opportunity for all. The disabled are not interested in free access for any group of people, as that would lead to envy. pops

RE: Driving home my point

Most of my experience with thrown rocks and chipped windsheilds is from over taking vehicles doing a proper passing. I do try to keep up with the traffic to reduce the amount of overtaking vehicles. At 66 mph I get passed a lot less than at 55. Pops

South Texas winds late this year

The onshore spring winds are running very late. 15-20 miles per hour 24 hours per day. Its blown out two major fishing tournament the past two weekends. Need a strong anchor to drift fish. Should be creating storms upcountry in OK/MO. Campers beware.
