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

RE: Bizarre California health care sitch

One simple change would fix many of the medical bill issues. Allow providers to establish their own rates but require that all customers pay the same rate regardless of being insured, mediocre or selfpay. A number of years ago I spent the night in the local hospital covered by insurance for 1100 dollars. By mistake the hospital sent me the original invoice for 11000 dollars. I went to the accounting dept to verify the erroneous billing and asked what I would be billed if actually self paying. Response was 11000. The negotiated rate fraud is used to justify the insurance companies administrative malarky

RE: The Grand Canyon to improve handicapped access

regards swimming pool lifts...My wifes only access to a swimming pool is through the use of a lift. A swimming pool for a polio paraplegic is fantastic for muscle inhancement and in a pool she is almost an equal to the other guests. The lifts I have seen are not expensive when compared to ramps, and door openers. I found the folks at the grand canyon to be very responsive in assisting access to the grounds 7 or 8 years ago unlike the folks at denali in Alaska. denali had the same access procedures but they did not disclose them and when challenged claimed a 5 day waiting period to process a request

RE: Memorial Weekend Ruined

using the same standards as the BP oil spill in the gulf, everyone within a hundred miles of the coast, 300 miles north south will have cause for a money claim. The campground has been reserved for lawyers and accountants. Anyone with a post on this blog can happily point to intent to use that park for claim backup documentation

RE: State of Emergency in Washington?

I do feel kind of sad for California, tripling its population, eliminating greenhouse gasses, high speed rail, cancer notices on every package, saving the snail darter, promoting the use of foreign tech workers while laying off residents and some how planning for water supply just got overlooked the last 30 years in favor of restrictions.

RE: Buckee's Road stop

The Wharton 59 south Buccees has only been open for 3-4 years and they just started construction on doubling the number of pumps. That location seems to have to many people leaving their vehicles at the pumps unattended while they go inside to shop. When the pumps are busy, its just plain rude to leave the vehicles tieing up the space

wild weather strips awning

Coming south out of Houston yesterday, there was a very nice motor home with toad on the side of the road with an auto awning fully extended and ripped/bent. I was not able to stop but surmise that the side wind extracted the awning. I have seen that a couple times. When the nasty blows and I have to travel I will bungy my slide topper in place and lash the locks on my mech awning. This morning we had gale force winds in Rockport and it would definitely not be a travel days
