New bed

We replaced the factory supplied bed mattress and used the new one for a week. What a difference. No more pain from sleeping on plywood. We had added two mattress toppers to the old matt and it did not not help. The new one is a queen sized short, and while special order fit very well. .New one is much thicker with a pillow top built in.. pops

RE: Summer time tires

If we need drama, one of my first camper trips out west texas, I had a blow out and sure it was tense getting the rig slowed and off the road. It got really tense when I stepped around the trailer to inspect and stepped into a angry rattler. Took ten minutes to get off the top of the trailer. Checking your tires before getting on the hot pavement in June is useful to spot bad rubber, out of round etc.

Summer time tires

During the trip from Corpus Christi to New Orleans three days ago, it seemed that every ten miles there was a camper, boat trailer or motor home on the side of the interstate with a blown tire. That is a lot of rubber to dodge. It was the first hot day of summer, folks needing to get out for the weekend, but they should have checked their tires. It's very likely that where you stop to replace the tire has red ant piles. Not nice.

RE: Flat towing

2012 4 wheel drive Colorado can be safely hooked up in three and one half minutes. Under pressure I have disconnected and driven off in one minute fourth five seconds. Easy easy...

RE: How fast do you drive your rig?

60/65 is a good target. I will tend faster if keeping up with the traffic helps avoid being passed frequently by eighteen wheelers throwing rocks that ding the windshield. All other conditions will tend to slow me down

RE: Excess Genny use

Well Chaldean,,,, the way your self acknowledged rant starts, I kinda feel sorry for your neighbor being evaluated to the detail that occurred. I mean there are nontechnical folks trying to mainstream and they need support not derision. Were this to occur on a college campus today you would be found guilty of a perceived aggression. The frat houses manage this pc by drinking another beer

RE: Flat towing

Purchase a 2012 Colorado 4x4. I find its the easiest toad to hook up and go. Neutral transfer case is easy. No need to unlock steering

RE: Ever had your mirrors hit by a pasing truck?

Was directed into the handicap lane going to the ferry at prince Rupert and happened to have about 3-4 deep rv's on either side as we were going to the front of the line. Hit two mirror's on the right and one on the left. Slow no damage but all vehicles needed to pull mirror in

RE: Master Tow dolly problems

Have you considered towing 4 down, requires new toad. Have you considered retrofitting the trailer with boat trailer lights from Walmart, submergible and better built. Next time you replace tires have the wheel bearings maintained. 1.75 inch clearance on either side of car seems tight, the tolerance in vehicle suspension movement, trailer suspension movement and your accuracy in aligning may be suspect. Have you considered lying to Master Tow and suggesting that you want to buy another dolly from them but you've had these problems and want to know how to avoid them in the new purchase.

RE: Grand Canyon to Moab

In Moab be sure to rent a 4 wheeler or jeep and take a tour of some of the easy trails. Up close and personal to the canyons a is fantastic

RE: Can I jump start my toad from my motor home?

Let see..jump it and then let the car run for an hour to charge the battery. Not very green....almost as bad as running an antique diesel.

RE: Can I jump start my toad from my motor home?

Why not just start the gen set and use it to run a battery charger for your toad. On my previous toad running down the battery was a weekly occurrence tat was fixed by a batt charger at the camp ground every other night

RE: Spare tire for Alaska trip ?

I carry a spare tire, a rated bottle jack and lug tools to change. While I may not feel capable of doing the job myself, at least I am ready to accept help, without getting stranded for a week. While there are services available, scheduling has to be considered. A fellow camper south of Whitehorse a hundred miles was stuck for two weeks last summer waiting on shop time availability and tow truck for a diesel exhaust problem.

RE: Lafayette, Louisiana

Frog city campground 10 miles west of Lafayette is useful. Avery Island south of Lafay is interesting. Layafette itself was kinda off the beaten path for the civil war

RE: Bizarre California health care sitch

Also, my optimalogist 5 months ago refused to accept medicare advantage through Aetna, on a medicare covered exam. The explanation was that Aetna would pay below the medicare rate and pocket the difference
