RE: Opinions/Experience of 07 GMC Sierra 2500 6.6L

RE: Fort Wilderness in July

, the most popular rides were 60-80 minute waits! I wish the wait times were that short when we were there the week after Thanksgiving. To OP, hot and humid is a kind way to describe it.

RE: Can't See to Hitch Up

My fiver has a built in "mirror" strip on the front. Works great.

RE: Day nught shades

If you can catch them before the string breaks you can melt the frayed ends and weld them together, then pull the new string thru using the old. Will definitely try that next time. Hope there won't be a next time- but I know better.

RE: Pimples or bumps behind wallpaper

Really puzzled on how water is to blame. I had the same problem in the same place. A water hose left spraying on the window showed that mine actually came from above the window. Water follows paths that can fool anyone. But my exterior was aluminum which I believe has more places for water to leak. Although the bumps are showing only in that spot, you may find more below the present line when you remove that panel. If you can find the correct panel, I would cut it a little high and maybe raise the border just enough to cover but not high enough to be noticeable from the rest of the room.

RE: Proof that wind is the big factor in MPG.

Professional drivers and stuntmen with no helmets?? Wouldn't believe anything after seeing that.

RE: Best Towable Waste Water Tote for Beach Camping

Where we camp is soft sand so the tote would need to be able to be towed thru such conditions. Buy what you want, take off the wheels(or not) and buy a Flojet.

RE: Opinions please; 2009 Silverado LTZ 2500HD Duramax

Most diesel engines had emission problems in the 2007-2010 range due to EPA regulations. They all had emission issues, so I'd get something prior to 2006 or after 2010 when the DEF engines came out. And what emission issue is it that I had, being I never had one. Mileage seems in line with what the newer ones are getting but they do produce higher torque. And I have no clue when it is in regen.

RE: Internet price

Sounds like the "Document Preparation Fee" that car dealers charge customers. This used to be a cost of doing business: now it's an add on to make more money as is the shipping, and ubiquitous "handling" charge. Same thing with CW. Shipping charges are legit on vehicles. But doesn't matter to me as to what they want to charge, I always do an out the door price. They can put the money to whatever "fee" they wish to charge.

RE: Electrical Plug Inside the pickup box

Here are the instructions and they seem quite different than what I expected. Is this the way you installed your plug, or was yours a factory install? http://www.moparonlineparts.com/docs/82212195AB.pdf Custom truck place did my plug for $60.

RE: Electrical Plug Inside the pickup box

So plugged the cord into rear bumper electric receiver and put the remaining cord excess into the bed of the truck. It bounced out or threaded out of the bed of the truck onto the road and by the time I figured out there was a problem- the outer insulation and 4 of the 7 wires were bare down to the wire including the electric brake wires. Got to a campground in Ft. St. John--parked it--and went to work splicing the wires back together. Then got a roll of Duck Tape and taped it all to the bed of the truck. Didn't move until we got back home in So. Calif. Always carry Duck Tape !!! Same thing happened to me bringing home my first fifth wheel. Love that inside plug.

RE: Negotiating the price on a used 5th wheel

tell dealer you are looking at the same trailer at another location and ask if he can do better to keep you from buying other. And WE complain about the liar salesmen??

RE: Beach State Parks in South Carolina?

James Island While it is a great park, not exactly a "beach park"

RE: White vs. trailers with color

We're shopping for a late model 5th wheel, and we will likely buy a model from a couple years ago with "boring white" plus decals. I won't ever be buying any RV in a dark color. The simple reason: white reflects heat, dark colors suck it in. This is the practical reason that traditionally, up until a couple years ago, most all RV's were white (with decals). RV's aren't insulated like houses, so it's a practical concept that matters to me, perhaps more than to some because I live in Southern Arizona and our RV is stored next to the house in the sun. One hot day last summer I put my hand on the dark decal and it was so hot I couldn't hold it there. I could hold it on the white fiberglass. Just noticed last week that the decal is now cracking. I've got a thermal laser and someday will temp them both.

RE: Florida beaches

FL State Parks do not allow pets on the beach. I asked one of the rangers as to why and the response was that it was for the best interest of the animal: lack of fresh water, dehydration, sand fleas, salt water not being good for their skin and coat, and even sunburn But its all good for me??

RE: Tailgaters

But I'm flabergasted at the folks on I-70 who insist on riding my bumper! I'm doing 55mph, far right lane, speed limit is 75. Both left lanes are open. No exits for miles... Really? Don't know why this surprises you. It's SOP on every interstate or road in the USA no matter what you are driving. I love life in the slow lane.
