RE: Waiting for a diesel pump at Loves exit 233 on I-65

The only gas station for 100 miles in either direction on the Alcan had plenty of parking. A caravan finishing up at the pumps ahead of me did just what the op describes. Went inside store because he had plenty of time before the cruise director said start your engines. Wound up blocking traffic on the highway.

RE: Chev Colorado Pickup

I towed a 2003 Colorado flat behind but had to have a drive shaft disconnect installed. It was a royal pain in the but and not recommended. I now have a 2012 Colorado 4x4 that is great to tow. Drug it to Homer Alaska and back last year. Put the transfer case in neutral, take the key out, tow bar to base plate hookup, tail lite wire connection and go. Its lite enough to be within GVW limitation and avoid the aux braking issue. Base plate bolts directly to heavy steel frame, not unibody thin skin

RE: Class A and medicine chest items

Use a plastic fishing tackle box for infrequently used med supplies. Tupperware containers to stand items in for spice cabinet, under sink, wifes makeup, wifes do dads, wifes nail kit, wifes jewelery, wifes video discs and wifes misc. Large liquid containers fit in plastic basket in shower.

RE: Replace Air Filter in Triton V 10

My experience with family cars and pickup are that I can get about 20-25 thousand miles on a filter. The 2011 v10 I have needed a new filter every 8-10 mile. The motor home under hood aerodynamics apparently sucks up more road dirt than the typical family vehicle.

RE: where to get a used chair lift

trying to figure out the quote option............ADA generally covers public accommodation requirements for businesses. I have not known it to provide financial resources to requesting individuals. Medicade and medicare do provide durable medical equipment such as wheelchairs and walkers and occasionally scooters. The rules for provision are limiting and intrusive. I have found that if I need a solution for my wife, purchasing directly from a supplier without aid of Medicare/insurance is expeditious and in most cases cheaper

RE: where to get a used chair lift

I assume your search for used one is saving money. Your dad's situation (I am sorry to hear that) may be covered by ADA (American Disabilities Act). I'm not familiar with your area about getting this government aid but here in CA., it seems relatively hassle-free in getting this help. It is probably because a lot of them are made locally. There are even brand new vans that are stripped to bare chassis where lift chairs are customized according to the person's need. This is presidential act that covers all Americans not just Californians. Signed by George W. Probably, for the price of a used one you would probably pay a small portion for a brand new unit because the government subsidizes this expense. . .you may even get it free. Look under government services for agencies that might be able to help. All the best

RE: base plate for toad is bent

Using a toad with unibody construction is a typical starting point that leads to unsafe conditions. The sheet metal used to form the body flexes at base plate attachment points and work hardens leading to failure. A breakaway break system is a Band-Aid on a bad situation. Purchase a toad with a real frame to bolt your base plate on and avoid most of your breakaway problems

RE: Follow up from Meemaw and Pop pop?

A new rig is not going to be as defect free as the car we are used to purchasing. The car is high volume assembly line, The MH is one off being assembled from field to fit system suppliers. Not unlike buying a large boat where sea trials are expected. A better shot at defect free would be to purchase a one year old used MH where the bugs have been worked out. Read the fine print on your retail purchase contract regardless of who you buy it from and you will see lots of boilerplate to protect the suppliers not the eventual owners

RE: Awning Replacement - Easy/Hard?

Just finished doing the awning replacement this evening. It is a two man job but real easy after watching the u tube videos.

RE: Why assume I like your music

Classical Puerto Rican music is defined as preamplification. Neighbor in Ponce twice a year would have a late night party with music that shook the concrete walls of my house. Chucking ripe mangos across the fence helped communication a little.

RE: Drivers unaware you are pulling a Toad

First trip to Alaska south of Anchorage to Homer there is a long stretch without much passing capability and we were stuck behind a class A with toad for 15-20 miles. Road was still 2 lane coming to a town and class a makes a rapid stop for a gas station pulls in and leaves the toad on the highway. Our class c breaks worked well. The gasoline tanker behind us slid by to the left in a cloud of tire smoke. Lots of laundry work. When pulling a toad, ya gotta clear the highway when pulling off

RE: Why assume I like your music

Never had a problem with Canadians playing their music to loud in the Idaho, Montana, state/federal campgrounds up near the border Of course all useful spots were booked up computer wise 364 days in advance and an wandering traveler could not get a spot in July and August

RE: Batwing directional handle

I look at the direction the other campers are using,,,,average,,,,and point mine in that direction. The wife will judge wither or not it needs additional tuning and instruct me accordingly. Very simple. A design improvement that could add value would be an interlock that prevents dummies from getting on the highway with it in the up position. Many campgrounds address this with an exit sign cautioning to lower antenna and take wife and children with you.

RE: Why assume I like your music

Tradition for the Hispanic community in south texas is to gather at the state parks with large extended family groups. Music, barbeque, partying is what it is all about. Rules require no visible alcoholic containers. I think it is great that the large families come together. I avoid state parks on Easter holidays

RE: Couch out the door

I removed my foldout couch, one person job, it disassembles very easily After 6 year the pleather fabric had completely crumbled. I found a house recliner that swiveled to replace it. Used two 1by6 oak boards to adapt the couch hold down to the recliner as it was mounted on the slideout. Completed job is several times stronger than the original couch.

RE: Our best trip yet... southern Utah!

Moab in late summer is an annual late summer stop for us. High clearance 4 wheel drive toad allows use of the offroad trails around Moab which are the best. If your toad won't work, rent a allterrian for a day . its worth it

RE: Tires & Alignment

Alignment that came from the MH manufacture chewed up the front tires in 15000 miles. A full truck service company alignment has my tires looking good after the next 50000. Either trust the truck alignment co. to do complete work or go elsewhere. Do not tell them how to do there work unless you have operated the alignment machine yourself.

RE: Recommendations for Class A windshield replacement

I always carry two windshield repair kits and try to fix within 1 hr of a rock strike. Can generally reduce exposure by staying up with the traffic flow. but stuff still happens.

RE: Changing taillights out to LED's

Bumpy is my buddy go easy.. Changing out stop, running lites should be no issue. Left/right turn signals do require sufficient voltage drop to operate the blinker thingey. Leds sometime do not do it
