RE: Radial tires travel trailer

I've been running Carlisle Radial Trail's for awhile now with no issues. While I keep the speed down, I really like the fact they are rated for 87mph

RE: Difference in honda generators Big store vs small dealer?

Pricing out Honda 2000's. Overall big box store $200 less than Honda dealer. Any reason? Honda's part numbers from their on line site has 3 different part numbers for their 2000I. EU2000iT1A1, EU2000I1A1, EU2000IKN, EU2000IKC Is there any difference from one or the other? The only differences I know (US) are the colors & companion options. Last time I really dug into it the safety folk in Canada would not allow generators sold up there to have the banana-jacks or circuit to support hooking the generators together, and they had different part numbers.

RE: Difference in honda generators Big store vs small dealer?

Honda does not allow on-line dealers to advertise below list price. That doesn't mean there aren't deals out there Mayberry Alamia Both typically offer prices well below list and ship for free.

RE: Another new OTA antenna

I would expect that to not work as well as the ol "crank-up". Height above the rig matters. That it can be "aimed" is good though.

RE: Glad we didn't quit over high gas prices.

I'm sure the price of gas will hit $4 or more soon enough. Enjoy it while it lasts. Correct, there is an expert in oil issues I try to read as often as he publishes. Oil prices dropped because the (former) Saudi Oil-Minister and the Foreign Minister convinced the Saudi government that cheap oil was in their best interest. So they stopped limiting production, a move that was quickly followed by several other oil producers that have cheap production costs. They did this for several reasons: slow US/Canadian production of expensive oil-shale/tar-sands/fracking, hurt ISIS/ISIL economy, hurt the Russian economy, hurt the Iranian economy, etc That Oil-Minister is now the Energy Minister, ie a promotion. Low costs will continue until the Saudi government thinks higher prices are in their best interests. The current "spike" is caused more by speculators then demand or supply, he expects prices to decline as the summer progresses as things return to "normal"

RE: Students Blamed for Trashed Camp

I can tell you there is one difference between the "kids" of today and those of yesterday The Internet. The stupid stunts some kids pull today gets massive publicity. The stupid stunts some kid (and sometimes us) pulled in the past didn't usually. I've worked with massively motivated kids from Millennials, X-Gen and Boomers and there was little real difference Well, other then Millennials sometimes posted their stupid stunts and preserved the evidence of being young and stupid.

RE: What do all of the letters and numbers mean? Model Numbers

Sometimes the number means "length" Sometimes the number means "square foot" Even that is not consistent, Northwoods old 26-5C was longer then their 27-5L

RE: 2014 E450 trans fluid change manual error

The E40D and 4R100 are all pre 2005 trannies. They can be fully drained/serviced cold. The 2005+ 5 speed trannies, can not. A hot flush machine must be used to exchange all fluid. Or why I hire it done

RE: Prince Albert Park

I can tell you that my in-laws, with lake front homes at Murry Point (south of NP) have taken in their boats & floats and winterized their cabins by then. The ones with four-season homes aren't spending much time there, until the snow falls.

RE: GPS Navigation

Can you load POI files to it, if so buy this one to it. Be advised it tells you when you are close to a low clearance, not that it's on your road or the one you are about to pass over. We had it in our Garmin for years and it does work We just got a Garmin RV760 and in initial trials are very happy with it. link

RE: Cat in RV....first time

We travel with ours in carriers, that they are in any time the slides are going in/out. They dislike travel days, but Luna(tic) loves the new channel on cat-tv when we stop. We never let them out of the rig, except in the carriers.

RE: Fridge on 12V killing the batteries

You should only run the refer on 12V when the engine is running, the 12V heater sucks too many watts to run it when parked. Most 3-way's are wired to only run when the ignition is on Obviously your University didn't offer any classes on battery power, but then I guess mine didn't either, but the US-Navy took care of fixing that lack.

RE: Fires in Canada

I don't believe the Canadians have asked for the retardant bombers based in the states which I find strange. I have an uncle who flies retardant jets and they're just sitting in Montana or Wyoming on the ground twiddling their thumbs. I'd have though the Canadians would have at least brought them in to stop the fires at the edge of the housing or along the highway to make evacuations easier. Bill They have their own, including the largest amphibian bombers

RE: Are RV forums dying?

There is an Elephant in the room...is anybody going to point it out regarding why minorities are under represented as Rv'ers/campers? .... That's actually a question the industry is spending time and money trying to understand & change

RE: Fires in Canada

I have lots of Buddies that moved up there as well that fly in for work. The guys that bought homes and moved there families have no idea yet if they have a home to go to as well they guys that fly to work are waiting to hear what's in store for them. Very sad for the people of that area no matter if they work there or live there, and so very proud of the people are fighting the fires and volunteering all over Alberta as well as the rest of Canada. Soup. Some people I read about checked on their home a very clever way, they had their ISP (Telus) "ping" their router. Since it responded they knew their home had survived and had power.

RE: Auxiliary Fuel Tank options

What is all the background questions on gas vs diesel. Aux tanks are made and can be used for gas also. Not? I got my tank from a company called Nationwide Wholesalers. It was RDS and less money than I could have got it from RDS. I also specked it out thru them and it was made to my exact specs by RDS and shipped direct to me. NOT! First not all tanks are made to handle gas. Second the regulations for an "aux" tank are stiff for gas. Example, Diesel can gravity feed, gas can't. Fuel evap control is another, the list goes on and on (Part 49 of DOT regulations) Aluminum Tank Industries are one of the few that make tanks for both.
