I have never locked the top lock, but good to know anyway in case I ever feel the need to. Thanks for posting and I hope you get at least an explanation from the lock company.

RE: How do you deal with jerks while towing?

I call them Illinois idiots. I grew up in Lake county and my parents still live there so I go back regularly. Hate to drive around there. I have to drive them down to Naperville on Friday for a wedding and not looking forward to it. Never pulled my trailer in the Chicagoland area and never will.

RE: Northstar engine

My 87 year old father has 90K miles on his '99 Deville and never an engine problem. He has never maintained it well either. I can't believe that car is still running but it does. They got rid of their '92 Safari van last year. Again, not maintained well but ran forever.

RE: October 2015 and year sales numbers

Can't understand the constant FCA slamming by the GM fanboys. It is because FCA stock is up 37% this year while GM is up 2%? Or maybe because GM stock has been dead money since the IPO? Or maybe because FCA actually repaid the govt bailout money while GM left the taxpayers 10 billion poorer? Maybe all of the above. Or maybe because darn near every RV hauler drives a Ram? Must be something.

That was nice of you.

RE: Gas mileage

I have tracked my towing only mileage for 21,000 miles now and am at 8.41. Wind makes the most difference in mileage from one day to the next. The elevation changes tend to average out.

RE: Mega sh 2500 hemi how much can I tow comfortably

I wouldn't spend a dime on new gearing. You are WAY over thinking this. Your truck will handle either trailer just fine as it is. I have 21,000 towing miles on my 5.4L/3.73 truck hauling 9,000 lbs without a hiccup. Have crossed over a dozen 9,000 - 11,000 ft plus passes in the west. Have been in 2nd gear many times at 45 MPH up steep grades, but who cares, I'm not racing anyone. The only time in first gear was because I got stuck behind a truck going 15 MPH this past summer with no passing zones.

RE: Help with major insurance problem

Gilbert is the expert and will find you an insurer. Make sure you explain your situation fully and clearly so they can find the right coverage. Just because they haven't had a hurricane in 10 years doesn't mean anything.

RE: Winegard Pathway X2

I enjoy my little cube (tailgater). I change the locals where ever I go and record the local news to get the local weather forecast. I haven't had to raise my antenna in our 8 traveling months over the past two summers.

RE: Update from Lost Dutchman SP Apache junction

The last six days have not been the greatest weather, but the clouds really cooled it down. 57 outside right now. Alas, the sunshine is finally returning today. We live about 25 minutes from the park and just use it for hiking.

RE: Ram 1500 Diesel Towing Capacity?

I tow at my max GCWR and can't always accelerate going up steep hills and somehow have always been able to merge. It's not rocket science: can't speed up then slow down. In that situation I would slow down anyway. I always let the trucks have the right of way.

RE: Cabin Filter

When you get in heavy traffic or behind vehicles generating a lot of exhaust fumes, change the HVAC to the recirc mode and it will start recirculating the inside air instead of bringing in the outside air thru the fresh air intake. When traveling, if I see a lot of dust or smoke ahead or a car/truck puffing smoke I change mine to recirc mode before I get there to keep that dust/smoke from coming in the fresh air intake. X2 - we call it the stink button.

RE: Lost my fee

Most KOA's charge $10 if more than 24 hours notice. All cancellation rules are clearly posted on the reservation page for that particular KOA franchise. I had to cancel and forfeit a $34 fee this summer due to health issues. The campground allowed me to reschedule, which I did even though I thought I probably wouldn't make it to Jacob Lake this year. Sure enough after 11 weeks on the road my wife didn't want to go back out again soon after we got home. I called the campground to cancel just so they could re-rent the space. I want this campground to stay in business since it is the only FHU park even half way close to the north rim.

RE: Grand Canyon Trailer Park and KOA - Cortez, CO Reviews

Lesson learned to get this information beforehand. Pools closing at 8:00 is not uncommon at all and charging extra beyond two people is not uncommon either. This goes for all campgrounds, not just KOA's. We have stayed at over 150 campgrounds around the country and they all have different rules.

RE: Socorro NM RV parks

I have been to Caseys. Inexpensive gravel RV park with pull thru full hookups. Would stay there again.

RE: Really having a tough time understanding tow info

The GCWR is the max tow rating number plus an empty truck, not plus the 9500 GVWR number for the truck.

RE: New Gorgeous RV Resort Park/Campground

I have no problem with the rules other than having to pay for your entire stay in advance. I can count on two fingers the number of times I had to do that in over 150 campground stays.

RE: It's National Fossil Day - Where's your favorite place?

We visited the Vernal State Park museum and 'the wall' this summer. Both were good. The flowers in Vernal were also impressive. Also went to the Red Gulch Dinosaur Trackbed, run by the BLM, outside of Greybull, WY that had tracks in a dry stone creekbed. Were hard to find, but there were several there.

RE: New Gorgeous RV Resort Park/Campground

Best of luck to the new RV park. New parks are few and far between these days.

RE: San Diego area

OK. No mission bay. The KOA looks pretty decent and is cheaper than the others as well (already a member). We will probably do the KOA and Paradise. Thanks to all.
