RE: Simple To Understand 7-Day Timer

I have a Stanley 7 day digital timer that is very easy to program. http://www.amazon.com/Stanley-31215-TimerMax-Grounded-Mechanical/dp/B0020ML74E

RE: Trailer Tires

I think trailers don't come with decent lt tires because that would cost the manufacturers a few extra dollars. So we get some overseas st no name brand tires instead. And since the manufacturers got the dot to approve st tires now we have a hard time getting tire shops to put superior lt tires on our trailers.

RE: Doesn't seem to have been many ST tire failures this year.

I think there were more reports of st failures in fhe last year. But I could be wrong. Maybe since the economy is improving people are not rving as much...flying, hotels, cruises, etc.

RE: Duncans Mills CA to I5 directions

If you're heading to Oregon you could go 101 north to 20 and east to I5.

RE: "Crystal Basin" campgrounds (CA)

You won't have any problems with your size or finding a spot mid week since school is back in session. I like gerle Creek its quiet up there but mid week this time of year I doubt you'll have neighbors close to your site at any of the campgrounds. Here is more info on all the campgrounds. There are pdf maps that show the sites. http://www.fs.usda.gov/activity/eldorado/recreation/camping-cabins/?recid=71008&actid=29

RE: TowMax Tires

Report the failures. Those things should be illegal. They're like the demo batteries in kids toys...just enough to get you home then get real batteries.

RE: Short 5th wheel

You might want to also consider used. You'll have more options from arctic fox and others. We do exactly the same kind of camping and will want a similar sized unit in a few years.

RE: Yamaha 2400 isHC powering RVP Air Conditioner

Something doesn't sound right. I can run my ac and microwave at the same time with my 2400.

RE: Trailer tire ratings?

St tires may be cheaper but st tire markers recommend replacing them after only 3 years. Lt tires can go twice that long so I would argue you pay more for st tires over the life of your rv. Oh and lt tires are superior...review the dot testing requirements. I think of st tires like demo batteries that come in toys. Just enough to get you to buy them.

RE: 4th July Trips?

Wild plum usfs campground in the Gold Lakes Basin area near Sierra City, Ca. Small campground that will likely fill up on the weekend but shouldn't be too bad. We go every year for the 4th. Nearby Downeiville has a great small town 4th parade and festival . They close highway 49 and the parade goes one way then turns around and goes by the other way.

RE: Double Towing with my rig (pics updated 5-13-2014)

How can you get a citation for no log book in a non-commercial vehicle? x2

RE: Double Towing with my rig (pics updated 5-13-2014)

I don't see the issue with ca and double towing. Go to dmv and take the written test and take a driving test with your fifth wheel or trailer to get a class a license with doubles endorsement. My brother in law got one and tows a boat behind his travel trailer. Sounds like you just need to practice parallel parking your trailer.

RE: Looking for a great campground near Mt. Shasta (CA)

At Siskiyou there are 2 rv loops and personally I like the one that is farther away from the lake. It has private sites like a real campground and not a rv park. The lower one is a large gravel area with sites around the outside but no real privacy between the sites. jmho.

RE: Looking for a great campground near Mt. Shasta (CA)

X2 on Lake Siskiyou. Great place for kids. Also check out the nearby fish hatchery and museum.

RE: ST vs LT Tires -- I'm confused

I think people need to read the thread on testing requirements by the dot. St testing is less stringent. St are simply updated as our tire engineers stated due to their "occasional non passenger usage." And they are designed for local service. So if you don't tow much or far than st might work for you.

RE: Gas milage for a diesel / gas engine

7,500 lb fiver 2000 f250 with 5.4 l v8 <9 towing and usually 10-14 empty. 2010 gmc with duramax 11-12 towing and 14-20 empty. So towing mileage will be about 50% better and diesel is cheaper than gas again but who knows if that will last. But i don't think it is really a apples to apples comparison...the power of the diesel is amazing and i would have to slow down to compare my mileage.
