RE: Ft Collins to Laramie

Hwy 287 along your planned route is an easy tow. There are some passing lanes to allow for slower vehicles.

RE: Why no TV signal?

I suspect your problem is associated with properly aiming your dish. Accuracy in aiming is the key to getting on the proper satellite. I use a signal devise that has a earpiece that you use to tune to the highest pitch signal. If you get a good signal on 101 it will also provide a adequate signal on the other two satellites for HD TV. Here is a Direct TV forum site that has good info for users. DIRECTVFORUM

RE: Why no TV signal?

RG6 cable goes to DirectTV receiver and HDMI from cable box to TV.

RE: Hwy 191 in Utah

I believe that the hill you are talking about is Combs Ridge and it would only have an effect if you were northbound. It is really not a long climb and I have done it in all kinds of rigs with no problem.

RE: TV for my TC

I have never found Jensen to be anything but junk. You can do much better by purchasing your own.

RE: diesel to gasoline truck for TC: any regrets?

My TC is about the same weight as yours. I do not tow anything with my 6.0 gasser and it does a great job on any Colorado pass with my camper weight. Now if your going to drag a 6000_7000lb load behind it that is a totally different problem.

RE: Torklift Glowsteps - Finally

I seem to have gotten lost somewhere in your description regarding the 5 step system. It looks to me like you have a 4 step system. Did you remove 1 step? I have the 5 step system but it hangs up on my carrier very similar to the one you have and I had to fabricate an additional wooden step at the bottom.

RE: Larger gas tank

I know there are gas tanks made to replace the smaller OEM tank on Chevy trucks and I assume they also make them for other brands. I have checked on them in the past and they are not cheap. It seems to me they were in the area of $1000 installed and increased capacity by some 30-40%.

RE: possible transfer to Tucson, AZ, RVing?

Before you leave N Y cut a square of your lawn out and carry it with you to AZ. It will be the last grass lawn you will see. You either visited the wrong places, or breezed through on the interstate or had your mind made up prior to seeing Arizona. There is beauty in every state. How about telling is about Loosely, Louisiana so we will know what to expect.

Minnie Winnie 24ft

I am seeking comments that Class C members might have on a 2004 Minnie Winnie 24 foot Class C. The unit has low mileage, new rubber, generator and is in good condition. This unit does not have a dedicated bedroom but rather an over the cab bed and a fold out couch plus dinette. The unit is on a F450 and has the Ford V10 engine. Being a 2004 it has the 4 speed transmission. Is this transmission a determent? How about the rated HP and performance of this engine? Thanks for any comments.

RE: Trust or not to Trust

Here's my problem, I'm an A/C tech and we're retiring in about 2 years. If I'm working on your 10th floor condo and I break a water pipe you could have $50,000,000 in damage till I shut it off. I only carry $1,000,000 insurance. I would not want to lose my home also. I am certainly no authority on this issue but I had some of your same concerns being a driver at 80 years old and more apt to do something dumb that I might have 20 years earlier. I took out an umbrella policy with my auto insurance carrier. It is quite reasonable and covers all family members for 1 million dollars.

RE: Back into TC again

I really like it. Hope you enjoy it as much as I have my Wolf Creek.

RE: Tork lift outside arms compatibility

My sense would be to contact Torklift. They should know, they made them.

RE: Lower Stableloads - Engaging Only the Rears?

I only have them on the rear. There is very little weight transferred to the front. My camper only places less than 200lb on the front.

RE: A visit to see the Sandhill Crane migration

Was that taller white bird in the video a whooping crane? Yes it was. According to the speaker at the Trust indoctrination session he has been coming back with the cranes for a couple of years. He didn't show last year and they are concerned about him, His name is Bob!

RE: Where is your truck camper headed this summer?

Over the previous summers I have headed to the cooler temperatures of the Rocky Mountains or the heat and humidity of the plains of Kansas, for my summers, visiting friends, hiking, kayaking and riding motorcycles. Essentially staying out of the way of people until after Labor Day. I always imagined as time went on and my years begin a process I knew would sometime slow my pace. For then I would hover longer in a single place. Well, this situation will begin this summer. For I received a phone call, a couple of months ago, a few years early I would say. It was a request to come back and do something I had left, over 35 years ago. I am returning to the National Park Service this summer, just for a few months. After doing the formal application/interview/background investigation it seems pretty much a commitment now. When I mentioned, to them, I would want to continue living off the grid, while posted at the Ranger Station, they laughed and said; "Sure." So, this will be a change for me and something I am looking forward to doing. b Do you have any idea where you might be located? Just curious as I spent 12 year as a backcountry Ranger for the USFS out of Ft Collins, Co. A very enjoyable venture to say the least. 1mtnman
