RE: Tire decision... My turn :)

Due to having to go into full retirement and the economy when I purchased new tires last year I had to make do with second choice. The ridiculous price differnce between Ribs and BF Goodrich was just too much to bare. The Goodrich seem to be doing a good job. I would not run the TA's much past 4 years! Ribs you could have run 6 or 7 years without worries. I factor that into my decisions. I ran Ribs for 40k+ miles and 6.5 years. Now on R250's based on cheaper price by about 50 dollars per tire. Both are the best available for 5200 and 6K axles. Chris The difference was more like $110 a tire. I am happy for that you have deep pockets. I just couldn't justify the extra expense. When I was working and before my wife lost a great job I wouldn't have thought twice and would have put on Michelins. By the way we have Michelins on both our trucks. The one on my wife's are weather checked in less than 5 years. Don't think I would run em on my trailer 6 or7 years!

RE: New Mexico winter suggestions

Westay over night at 81 Palms in Demming one night every year we go down. It is very well up kept and very large spot. One of the nicest we've spent. Over the air Tv is all your going to get unless you set up a dish. Trains close by and I don't see much for entertainment in Demming. Friends of our stay a few weeks in TRC on the way home and seem to enjoy it.

RE: Big Time RV! on Travel Channel

Same with auto and motorcycle reality shows. I just watch so I can laugh at the miss info, mistakes and BS.

RE: How much difference between SD and HD

PennyPa, its a matter of personal opinion. I'm perfectly happy with SD, its much better than the TV signals I've watched for half my life. HD may be better, but to me its not worth the hassle of changing out all my dome antennas and existing receivers. I've got 3 houses & 3 RV's all setup with SD; no use changing one unless I'm going to change them all. I do buy high quality TV's and that's just as important as the signal. PS: no dome style antenna works with DirecTV HD, that includes all the carry out & roof mount domes Sorry but SD looks better on an old CRT TV than it does on a newer high dollar, high quality TV. Your just throwing money away that could be used changing to HD. Speaking off throwing a way I just gave away 19",24"and32" TVs you could have had for nothing.

RE: How much difference between SD and HD

SD compared to HD is like comparing black and white to color. I would do every thing it could to use an HD antenna, even if you have to scrap the carry out unit and go with setting up a tripod.

RE: Out with the brass, in with the satin nickel

Our first RV would have been a Hitch Hiker but they stuck with the gold fixtures longer than anyone. Just could not stand them I don't blame you for changing them out.

RE: cost of storing your RV

$30 pull through spot long enough fo the fifth wheel and the ATV trailer. Five minutes away. Is that per month? There are a few places close by that charge between $200 and $300 a year. One is the back lot of a business, there are a couple of people that have an area on their property, gravel based areas. None of them are secured fencing. Per month. Secured number coded gate. Video cameras. Next to a major hi way and a truck stop. You can see my stuff driving by the hi way.

RE: how do you know when to trade

Probably can remodel it pretty reasonable. New floors, valance, furniture and you have a new RV. I recovered our valances and kitchen chairs for about $100. Got rid of purple flowers and purple chairs. Got rid of purple flowered hide a bed and installed a love seat, $300 on sale. Took off the outdated wall paper border, cost zero. Difference is amazing.

RE: I am stupid, I am stupid, I am stupid.........

Optical illusion. Looked like the NIKE swoop to me. However, I couldn't explain how come it was there.

RE: Why only one bed in a fifth wheel and why sooo tall?

We even took the hide a bed out of ours. Motels just down the street.

RE: Just avoided a tire disaster

Just to throw gas on the fire. The only tires I had explode on me were the COOPERS on my pickup. Both left side tires went on different occasions and did major damage. Rear box, front fender, bumper, rocker panel.

RE: Polaris introduce generators

Polaris sure looks like a Kipor to me. http://thumbs2.ebaystatic.com/d/l225/m/m-XXqsvajY99xRQVyGyzzOw.jpg http://bullheadpowersports.com/images/polaris/P3000I.jpg

RE: New Fifth Wheel

Very surprised and disappointed that these manufactures haven't all addressed the rain coming into a slide out when traveling. They have to be complete idiots to have not known this was going to happen. One reason our last purchase was a used upper end unit is be cause these issues generally were dealt with. Plus we saved big money.

Polaris introduce generators

Noticed today that Polaris has three generators In there line up. Polaris the 3000 looks surprisingly like the Kipor 3000 I had that I paid $825 for new. Handles and control panel look identical.

RE: Don't mess with MSN email address!

One thing good that has happened is I don't get mail from old accounts and institutions that keep sending stuff after I requested them to quit.

RE: Don't mess with MSN email address!

Bill look on your credit card statement for a 800 number for MSN. The person who answers might be able to tell you how to get a hold of the department that can help you. Worth a try. Don I stopped the extra charge fee for more services on MSN years ago. I have already changed every thing over to new account. I happened to have An alias that was the same as msn.com in outlook.com.

RE: Don't mess with MSN email address!

My dad,91, belongs to a computer club and when I told him he said they warned him years ago not to mess with your MSN address cause you'll lose it.
