RE: Near retirement - health insurance

This is the only time we used the insurance, it was in network. BCBS has a good nationwide network. She is fine, we were back on the road in a few days with her just taking it real easy for the first couple of weeks. No lifting, etc. Two months later all claims have been paid, great service from BCBS Arizona.

RE: Newbie - confused about hitch weight

Get the 12K Equalizer 4 point hitch. The Anderson doesn't do well redistributing the weight from the rear axle back to the front axle from what I have read on here. You will probably need to upgrade your receiver as well. Best of luck with the new trailer.

RE: Near retirement - health insurance

We have a BCBS individual plan in Arizona that covers both of us. It is a PPO plan. Her operation was in New York State on an east coast trip. No, we are not full timers as we own a Park model in Arizona and that is our domicile. We travel about 5 months out of the year.

RE: Near retirement - health insurance

The problem with not having insurance is the bills are much higher. My wife had to have an appendectomy and was in the hospital for only one night. Bill was 18K and the insurance company 'negotiated rate' came out to 5.7K. Without insurance you are on the hook for the entire 18K bill. It's crazy but that is the way it works.

RE: Towing through Eisenhower Tunnel

I too stressed about this drive for months and when it was done I wondered why.

RE: Stopped at weight station ROUND 2-Need advice

I don't think one washer will put you over on the front axle. I'm restoring all but 160 on my setup, but my trailer weighs a thousand pounds more than yours. Have about 14K towing miles now all over the country. I get pushed around a little now and then, not often though as it seems to depend on the wind direction, but feel my setup is optimal for me. I don't think that you will ever get away from a little push now and then, adding a washer or not.

RE: Financing Survey

Average annual returns are misleading by design. It is simply a number made up by Wall Street to make returns look better than they really are(except if the market never goes down). For example over a five year period your index fund goes down 50% followed by four years of 25% gains. Wall Street balances the + and - equally when they are not equal. Your mutual fund statement will say your average annual return is 10% for the past 5 years so you would think that if you invested $1000 now you have $1500, but in reality you only have $1220. Go figure.

RE: Syracuse to Lake Placid Route?

We were in Lake Placid for a week about 2 weeks ago. All the roads in the area were smooth, but some had not much shoulder. Wed and Sat at 1:00 is ski jumping. I highly recommend checking it out if you are there. The Olympic Passport is well worthwhile. I was impressed with the Olympic venues. At the Bobsled track they take you to the top and then you can walk down the 1 mile track, on the track. That was really cool.

RE: Towing with a Ford E250 Van (4.6 liter, V8) in the mountains

You didn't mention your gross combined weight rating. If you are under that then you will be fine in the mountains. Don't be afraid of 4K RPM up and down the grades. Let your tranny do the work and stay off the brakes.

RE: Colorado to Taos, NM

La Veta is a piece of cake. Easiest pass we did in Colorado.

RE: Rt. 287 in PA to Wellsboro

If you visit Leonard Harrison SP do the hike down to the river. Was there a couple of months ago and really enjoyed it.

RE: 2500 HD gasser

Between the loss on trading/selling your current truck and the upcharge for the diesel/Allison combination, you will be trading slightly less pain at the pump for a *LOT* more pain on the 1st of the month when the truck payment is due. Your truck's fuel mileage will improve once you get some miles on it. X2

RE: Hirearchy

Has never happened to me. Biggest Class A down to the smallest pup everyone we have met has been friendly. Personally I don't care one way or the other, we don't travel to socialize.

RE: PA Turnpike Tolls

Used our EZ Pass in IL, IN, OH, PA, NY and MA. Something wrong with yours.

RE: Weight Distribution hitch..

Tongue weight is 1320. That is a lot for 1200 lb bars to handle.

RE: 3/4 Ton Ultimate HD Test Is In

My truck has the following gears: 3.13, 2.42, 1.55, 1.00 and .71. Put that 2.42 2nd gear in the Ram and it would have had no problem holding it on those grades. I didn't running 98% of GCWR. I like the six speed gear ratios in the Ford and GM much better than the Ram. I didn't know that there was so much of a difference.

RE: How much will a big fifth wheel limit us?

Yep, internet is going to be your problem in remote locations. May not even get satellite in wooded areas.

RE: 8% grade descent

My tranny will drop to first in T/H. Happened once in Utah last year coming down a twisty 12% grade. Mostly held me at 30 MPH but still had to brake a little for the 25 MPH curves.

RE: 3/4 Ton Ultimate HD Test Is In

6.0 to 6.4 is a 6.7% increase, not 20%.
