RE: All I wanna know...

Well, here I am as usual with one foot planted in each century: I use an oldfangled electric percolator at home...but I have it plugged in to a newfangled digital timer that I took out of an otherwise defunct drip coffeemaker.

RE: Winning the RV campsite lottery

Anyone else feel like they've won the lotto with their campsites?We mostly boondock so play a different kind of campsite lottery, but I know what you mean about the feeling of Lady Luck sittin' on your shoulder. That's exactly the way I feel when I travel 300 miles to my favorite "secret" boondocking spot and it's actually EMPTY when I get there. I spend the whole drive telling myself that I couldn't possibly be that lucky again, and listing alternative sites in my mind, and telling myself I don't really care that much...but every time I roll up and there's no one camped there it feels like a monster stroke of luck. We're up to four years running without a loss on that spot! And now that I said that I've probably jinxed it for next year.

RE: Can a tire explode from Over-inflation?

I am certainly not going to tell them I plugged the tire...so not sure how they could attach liability to me. Not to mention the fact that I am confident in my work, so I don't think there would be an issue to start with. If anything I mitigated liability by setting the tires pressures to what they should have been. May I suggest that you ought to tell them? I think they have a right to know, especially if the repair consisted only of a plug. Since you say you patched the tire right on the car, is it fair to assume that a plug-from-the-exterior is what the repair consits of? I think that's considered sufficient for a temporary repair, but it's my understanding that the correct permanent solution is plug AND patch from the tire interior.

RE: Signs, signs, everywhere there's signs.....

Who remembers the following REAL "all time great" school zone sign? :B http://www.theblaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/school-sign.jpg True story here

RE: What's the difference between regular and light 5th Wheel?

That whole "lightweight" thing is a bunch of malarkey, in my opinion. I think in just about every case, you'll find that the "lightweight" units are simply SMALLER. As you point out, construction is virtually identical. Take a closer look-see at those numbers; I especially encourage you to add up the cubic footage, then divide that number into the weight. Weight per cu. foot is likely nearly the same for regular and "lightweight" models.

RE: Signs, signs, everywhere there's signs.....

how about this sign that I see here in SW colorado..."Hill Blocks View" ..we laugh every time we see it! It's alerting you to be extra cautious since the hill/"hump" in the road ahead blocks the view of the road on the other side. http://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-zizhWPm0YH0/UfVLRmOBeBI/AAAAAAAAoG0/60EkH0B0Z7Y/s618/hill%2520blocks%2520view%25207-7-2013%25203-02-29%2520AM.JPG width=400

RE: National Park Vandal

(In case anyone cares, it's simple enough to opt-out of the political e-mail list.) I can vouch for that. I signed one other petition there, also after someone posted about another Park travesty here. I never get any mail since I "opted out".

RE: National Park Vandal

Could someone post the link to the petition, I'd like to sign.Here ya go! Count has increased by over a thousand since about 11:00 this morning Pacific time. Can't wait until the NATIONAL news gets ahold of this story.

RE: National Park Vandal

I hope they catch that tramp and make her pay :M :(:( "Tramp"?? wow... Wondering what lovely sexual epithet you assigned to the two moronic scout leaders who toppled the boulder? "Tramp" just means BUM to me. Works for either sex. And applicable in both cases!

RE: National Park Vandal

It is no less a crime to deface privet property as it is to deface public property. I agree, but would add that one rarely sees graffiti on a bush. ;) Beat me to it - unless of course the privet is not on private property. :BWhat if the privet is by a privy on private property? :B

RE: Help. Please?

Question for Cpap experts: I think some cpaps are actually 12volt already- they run off 120v by means of the "adapter" that plugs into the wall. Can such a machine just be run directly off a 12v power supply via a machine-to-battery connection?

RE: National Park Vandal

Over 5,000 folks have signed a petition to get the Feds to throw the book at her! Link I for one hope she's made to retrace her steps and clean it up bearing all expenses including that of 24/7 supervision. That last since she clearly can't be trusted to be let alone into Our Parks.

RE: Manufacturers making defective tires

Thanks for the report. For the record: What's the trailer make/model/year, and what was the tire size and load range? Thanks!

RE: Airstream>>

What percentage off the MSRP can someone negotiate on a new Airstream? 110%-120% is considered a Good Deal by folks determined to own one of these American Icons. Anything under that would relegate the deal to that of "it's just a trailer".

RE: Are Most Class A Motorhome Owners Hermits?

It seems the only time you see the Class A motorhome owners outside is when they have to take their little fufu dog out to do its business. Can we stay on topic and leave out the passive-aggressiveness You know what they say, people who live in glass trailers... :h You make no sense. Bruce That's because they live in a glass trailer. Which makes no sense, either, but to each his own, right? :)

RE: Can a tire explode from Over-inflation?

What's the max stamped on the tires? Nine people out of ten will inflate to that number instead of to the one marked on the door panel. And unless actual inflation exceeds its labeled max psi the tire is not, technically speaking, overinflated.

RE: Motorhome with towing capabilities - how do I approach this?

The toad plus tow bar will be say 3,200lbs. Winnebago Industries is not specifying GCWR (at least I couldn't find a number), so where does that leave me in terms of legally towing the Honda? Contrary to popular opinion, and at the risk of starting a firestorm of dissent: There's no "legal" standard per towing capacity- numbers given by manufacturers are just vehicle capability. Lacking that number from Winnebago, you'll have to work backwards from the equipment itself. First thing I'd look at is the hitch, if there is one. That would obviously have to have sufficient capacity. After that, you might take advantage of Changing Gears' tow calculator, which allows for the entry of various component figures and spits out a number. It's designed for travel trailers, but I see no reason why it can't be used in this scenario. Do note that components addressed there are mainly axles- capacity of the engine to pull the weight would have to be addressed elsewhere. Here's the link
