RE: TPMS - Buying from China - Any suggestions

The Chinese data processer provided as part of the monitoring system is likely to have spyware imbedded in it that will search your engine monitoring system and wifi driven computers. Do not take inappropriate selfies or exceed the speed limit as it will be posted on the net.

RE: toad brakes?

ALMCC your reference tab to braking requirement for British Columbia is succinct. But I read the requirement for tow bar pulled vehicles is that when the weigh less than 4400 lbs , no supplemental braking requirement exists. Trailers and toads greater than 4400 lbs have requirement.

RE: windshield wiper motor replacement

Windsheild wipers are fairly simple systems. The steering arm off/on variable speed switch, A control box and the motor. I had trouble with mine and found that it was a loose 5 pin controller that connected the motor. I was able to get the ford test repair document for the wiper system and it was set up to id the defective component. What leads you to believe its the motor and not controller or column switch. Do a goggle search for F 53, f 550, f350 wiper problems and it should lead you to the test procedure. There was a portion of it free on line but I brought the pro direct from ford for the rv chassis

RE: What's Going On with Skagway RV Sites?

We passed through Skagway last August and the campground pickens have gotten very slim. Place we had stayed at 5 years ago was closed . We stayed at Garden City. Scale of 1-0 its about a 4. There was another closer to the ferry but I could nor figure out the entrance. Summer tourist employees seem to be the larger rv occupant

RE: Buckee's Road stop

Well 2112,,, you seem to have caught Wikipedia in a misstatement regards the sale of lottery tickets at Buc-ees. If you hurry and correct it, you can claim to be a wiki contributor. Traveylin

Strange weather pattern Rockport Tx

Its been a wet spring here in Rockport, and currently we are getting storms each night out of the west/southwest, normally a dry direction. Weather person sez its to continue for several more days. Filling up the lakes, that's good. Making mosquitoes, that's bad.

RE: Buckee's Road stop

Buc-ees does have diesel. It does not sell lottery tickets as that slows the checkout process.

RE: How long before you're considered a resident of a state?

While working outside the US the company set up a forwarding mail address out of Connecticut. That was sufficient to cause Conn to ask that I pay the 8 percent income tax for the year even though I had not been in Conn physically. Tax attorney backed them off. But moral of story is that some states are very aggressive and will look to any paper trail to make you pay

RE: Thunderstorms

I had a popup blown down in New Mexico. Storm came up quickly and could only get family in a shelter before blow down. Manage your exposure to the wind above 50mph. The rain and lightning are less problems

Buckee's Road stop

Folks talk frequently about truck stops. In Baytown east of Houston Buckee's has just opened a 96 pump gas stop and shop, sandwich, toilet, Jerky meat tourist trinkets etc. 18 wheelers are requested not to be on the property. Its a Texas operation, there biggest previously had been on I-10 near Luling with about 80 pumps. Most Buckee's have great access for motor home with toad or PU with 5th wheel. I have no financial interest in Buckee' but their sliced brisket on a bun with onion and pickle is worth the stop. My wife insists on stopping at the one 59 south of Houston in Wharton. Great Texas stop

RE: toad brakes?

Obeying the law complexity.....That's a completely different topic. You might check out Glenn H Reynolds, professor of law at university of Tennessee. He has written a number of articles regards compliance with todays administrative law requirements ,, and the inability to do so... retraite above describes the added value of aux brakes well. But would you be true to the cause by never pulling your toad with the aux brake disconnected The US coast guard has no requirement for radar application on boats under 50 feet BUT if you do have one on a boat under 50 feet it is a violation to be underway without it being in service. Test question on Captains 6 pax liscence

RE: toad brakes?

I am smiling... Break away system is a third level protection designed to stop the toad if it happens to become separated from the pulling vehicle. It is not guaranteed to stop it in a safe location ie on coming traffic. First level protection is to have a properly mounted baseplate and tow bar that is inspected by op frequently. Baseplate needs to be mounted to the frame not thin unibody construction. Your ranger has a frame, many toads do not. Second level protection is an independent set of chains attaching rv frame to toad frame. again unibodies do not meet the requirement. Probability analysis, failure cause analysis, layers of protection can all justify spending money on the back end if you cut corners on the front end. Trouble is the added complexity also adds failure nodes

RE: toad brakes?

I do not use a toad braking system as I consider them to be excessive failure contributors. Your Ranger is a lite truck and if you check GVW for the combination you will likely see it within the towing capacity of your mh. My simple observation during last years 4 month Alaska trip was that about 1/3 toads had aux brakes, 2/3 did not. My observation of the dingy forum the last 5 years is that folks with aux brakes tend to justify them, folks without them smile and move on. This was our second trip to Alaska and have only seen three moose well back off the highway in the trees. But those frost heaves will sneak up on you and really shake things up.

RE: Satellite Dish Reception

We lost Sirius radio reception north of Whitehorse going to Anchorage. Satellite gets behind the curve of the earth.
