RE: Walmart and other free camping

As said before, it's Overnighting not camping. I think the important thing is, keep a low profile and be courteous. Always ask for permission if possible. And don't just look for a Walmart, there are other places in addition to Casino Camper. Enjoy your trip. Overnight VS camping is purely semantics. You are very incorrect --Overnight means you pull in you maybe run the Generator a little bit for TV or air condition and you go to bed . camping you put out your chairs put out your awnings put out grill that is camping Wrong, anything I do in my camper is camping. Weather its an quick stay or not it's still camping.

RE: What should I have done?

I felt I had plenty of distance between myself and the truck. We were on a slight curve and the trooper was completely blocked from my view. I am always very conscious of this because a motor home does not stop as fast as a car. Also I did hit the brakes as soon as I saw the trooper. I you could not see a police car of the shoulder ahead of you that means you were following the truck too close.

RE: ignition fob , wet

I once washed and dried and SD card and amazingly all of the data was still intact and just fine. I was really amazed it could stand up to the heat of the dryer. Google says dryers are around 135 degrees. Commercial grade IC's operate up to 185 degrees and well over that for industrial grade (250+). They could survive even hotter temperatures when powered off. The dryer is a piece of cake. Its not the heat, the banging around is not good for it. Not to mention high amounts of static electricity (ESD).

RE: How fast do you drive your Class A?

Look at the speed limit signs. Anything from zero to that is ok. After that it's criminal activity.

RE: Technology To Save Lives. How Much Would You Squawk

Choice means options. You err I'm afraid...living in the landscape alongside a freeway is not an option. Wuwee, the undocumented do not decide where public taxes are spent. The legislators do. The answer above is a great illustration of the warping of perception of reality. Why legislation attempts utterly fail to realize goals. Come. Sit with me in a healthcare waiting room. The last visit was me, and nine expectant mothers who I could only converse with in Spanish. A 2:00 appointment? Promptly, at 2:36 I was called. The six minute "I have other patients waiting" visit had the harried doctor forgetting to FAX four of my 24-font written listed medications. Three of which where cardiac medicines. THIS has become "the norm" It was too late to call the doctor from the pharmacy. Why is a two thousand dollar machine is being "looked at" in an attempt to augment public safety? Tackle the abstract not the reality? With Dystopian mentality the absurd becomes the normal and normal becomes undesirable. Favorite people-points to champion are the broad swath known as "victims". The only problem is, the cure is far worse than the malady. If a point of contention clearly urges a particular course of action, it therefore (to legislative0 is not usable. If anyone knows of a place in California that hosts dwellings fit for a social security budget please yell and scream... The silence is deafening... You certainly do have issues.

RE: Woodbutchers?

"I think you need to find a quieter hobby unless you are not going to use any of the power tools from that well equipped home shop. I know we wouldn't like to hear power saws, lathes, sanders, shapers, planers, and routers in the site next to us." " X2. Last week we were at a CG and there was a guy there doing some carving. That was really cool until he started using his Dremel tool. I can't imagine someone using power tools at a campsite. " I think you guys have the wrong idea of my plans. I'm not looking to set up a Production Woodshop. A lathe turning greenwood bowls or a scroll saw making intarsia operate as quietly as a TV and certainly quieter than even the Honda generators. Jim I think you have the wrong idea about how far power tool sounds can carry. The campground is no place for power tools.

RE: Nasty wreck on video with a trailer being towed!

The driver posted his own account on the other three. No speculation needed.

RE: Is everyone ready for what may be the next Hurricane to hit?

There is no such thing as being OVER-prepared. If you are prepared, you are probably UNDER-prepared. ;-) Seriously, though....the weather folks are already saying that this storm is the strongest ever recorded in the Atlantic Ocean. There's even been loose talk about creating a Category 6 because of this one. Cat 5 comes in at 150mph and Irma's running with 180 sustained and well over 200 gusts. That's tornado strength spread out over 400 miles and sustained for hours and hours. She's nothing to play with and me personally, if I was in the path, I'd leave. If you're a full-timer and anywhere in the pathway, go west as far as you can go. We are in full preparedness mode here in NC, bracing for some form of impact. Hoping for the best, but preparing for the worst. Prayers for everyone in the pathway of this storm! Tornado strength 400 miles out?

RE: Nasty wreck on video with a trailer being towed!

Improper driving skills in addition to weight . The driver in passing attempted to cut in early and when he realized he had a trailer behind him he immediately tried to get back into his lane . he abruptly cut back in and the trucks air pressue wave didn't help. Once he went into fishtail he kept correcting and over correcting until he wagged himself into a flip. WRONG! In the drivers own words

RE: Stupid stupid idiot towing a TT

I loaned my 1/2 ton pick up to a friend who said he wanted to go pick up some sand for his kids sand box. I had no idea that he would almost fill the whole bed with sand. The bumper was almost dragging the ground when I went over to his place to help unload it. I was busy that morning and could not go with him but when I saw that I told him he might be replacing the shocks and springs on my truck. I was a bit POed to say the least. Puss bone that truck wasn't hurt.

Worst experience camping was still better than the best day at work.

RE: Capitalism at its best.

I needed a new head on my Reese Pro15 hitch. Your Raleigh dealer had one in stock but did not know the price. The PM told the counter person to call Reese for a price. He called as I was standing directly in front of him on the other side of the counter. I overhead his conversation with Reese. They gave him a price of $321. I thought even with a mark up a reasonable price. He wrote the price down right in front of me! He excused himself to speak to the PM. The Parts Manager came to the counter and informed me that my cost for the part would be $500. I thanked him and left, never to return again. I bought one from eTrailer for $157 + $42 shipping. When will they get it? They lose more customers with stuff like this. I bought theater seats, prepaid, 3-4 weeks. 4 months later they finally have them, now they want to charge more than the prepaid price. It's unbelievable how many horror story's you hear about CW. When will YOU get it? Camping World is growing and garnering more customers right before your eyes. Camping World is not going anywhere.

RE: RV Consumer Group Ratings report - is this report accurate?

Let me ask this.... how many class A's do you see wildly wandering down the road with the pilot trying to keep them in the lane... None ? I've seen plenty!

RE: Chinese Vehicles

Chinese factories build to specification. The reason you find so many poor quality items coming out of China is because consumers want items as inexpensively as possible, and companies are shipping production over there with the minimum specifications they can get away with. Some things made in China are of good quality, but you pay for it, just like you would pay more for an item of similar quality made here in the states. There are a few exceptions, like ball point pens, where Chinese manufacturing wasn't able to reliably produce high quality tips until very recently. With something like an automobile, where production is fairly well defined and streamlined there already, with many imported parts (to China, from Japan, Germany, and others), this goes back to whatever tolerances and specifications are sent over by the companies placing the orders. Don't look at the manufacturing location and turn it away, but look at the company placing the orders from China, and the product itself on the lot. That'll tell you miles more than the origin sticker. So those toys were speced to have lead paint? This argument that china builds to spec and the specs are wrong is BS! They will build to whatever suits them.
