RE: No road side Assistance! Blow out on interstate!

I would bet that Good Sam doesn't handle their assistance calls, but rather farms it out to a third party whose operators handle all different types of calls. Hence the reason for not knowing GS policy as the OP stated. ryoung

RE: Trip to CA..help me plan for TC camping

I don't see any reason to badmouth / put down these places. Why not stay in Oregon if in your opinion "Bakersfield...yuck and Alpaugh sucks"? There's obviously other places in California that don't suck, and he want's to see them. Nothing wrong with that. ryoung I no longer own the truck and TC in my signature.

RE: Looking for opinions on automatic vs stick

I bought the '03 Dodge 6 sp manual that's in my signature to pull a heavy fifth wheel RV. The manual transmission worked well to pull the combined load of nearly 23K lbs. I bought the Lance TC and later got rid of the fifth wheel and then realized I no longer needed or wanted the manual to haul the camper, which when loaded was well below the 11.5K GVWR of the truck. So to me it depended on the load. If I ever bought another truck TC combo, it would definitely be an automatic. ryoung I no longer own the truck and TC in my signature.

RE: Violators unlikely to be ticketed!

Back a few years ago driving used to be fun and enjoyable. Now it's like combat. And it's all because of non enforcement of traffic laws. Driving 10 to 15 mph above the posted speed limit is common on interstates today. Why? Passing on the right to drive 10 to 15 mph over the posted limit is tolerated. Why? I was on a 4 lane street with a center turn lane the other day, and some idiot used the turn lane to pass 4 cars ahead of him. I for one would like to see traffic laws strictly enforced with whatever it takes. ryoung

RE: Tire Pressure Again

+) Is there any chance that the dealer is correct that I should run all tires at 71 psi? Or should I insist that they adjust the tires to the pressure on the door sticker? +) Then how important is it to adjust the pressure when I load and unload the camper. That seems like a lot of trouble every time I load and unload. Besides, if people run higher pressure when loaded the extra 1 or 2 psi is going in the correct direction. The dealer cannot be correct in telling you to run 71 psi in the rear if the door sticker only indicates 65 psi which is the maximum pressure needed to carry the rated axle weight, which is normally determined by the tire load rating. In theory you should see no change in tire pressure after adding a load on it because the tire has the capability to change its shape. It makes no difference if you check and adjust your tire pressures before or after loading your TC. ryoung I no longer own the truck and TC in my signature.

RE: Things to do along I 75 FL to ON

Renfro Valley Music Park near Mt Vernon, KY. I think they are open in March. They have an RV park also. ryoung

RE: Garage ceiling clearance

From what I have read about your shed it has a 12 ft garage type door and 13 ft of ceiling clearance. If that is so, get rid of the garage door, enlarge the opening to the 13 ft ceiling and install a sliding door. Anything is possible. I once had a new pole barn built by Sikeston buildings that was 24 x 36 with eight foot walls. Over the years and different RVs that I had, that original pole barn grew to 24 x 65 with 14 foot walls in three different modifications. ryoung I no longer own the truck and TC in my signature.

RE: first weekend out on the sleds

Nice setup and equipment. Now, if I only had that setup with two Sea Doo jet skis in Florida, I would be happy. Very happy. ryoung I no longer own the truck and TC in my signature.

RE: Where to rent a truck camper?

Alaska has a few TC rental sites. At least they did a few years ago when I drove my TC up there. ryoung I no longer own the truck and TC in my signature.

RE: truck question

I also found the "not recommended for truck camper" on the 2004 Dodge Dually long bed that's in my signature, but that I no longer own. I researched long and hard for an answer, but never found one. I originally ordered and bought the truck to pull a large fifth wheel RV. The truck salesman at the dealer I purchased it at, just shook his head and laughed when I told him about the "no truck camper" The Lance 915 was plenty light for the truck, never coming close to the GVWR and the center of gravity was ahead of the axle, even though the camper set 10 inches back from the bed because I had an across the bed aux fuel tank. Never had any problems in over 95K miles traveling across the US, Canada and Alaska. Very annoying that the manufacturer tells you not to do something but then they will not or can not tell you why. ryoung

RE: Do coiled power cords heat up and cause fires?

For a coiled wire to act as a transformer, the coiled wire would need to be placed in such a way as to have it's magnetic field interact with another conductor. That is what I was thinking. A primary and a secondary winding make a transformer. Not just a coil of wire. ryoung

RE: Do coiled power cords heat up and cause fires?

I have pondered the comparison of a coiled power cord to that of a transformer. I can't seem to visualize how that is possible. Can someone please enlighten me? ryoung

RE: Dumping RV tanks into home syptic system

Bacteria eat the solids and the result is liquids and gasses. Not all of the solids, some remain and settle as sludge to the bottom of the tank. Then you have the grease and scum that collects on top. Both need to be removed periodically by pumping. The following has been copied from the MassDEP website. How Often Should I Pump Out my Septic Tank? Regular maintenance is the single most important consideration in making sure your septic system, whether it is a conventional septic system, an innovative/alternative (I/A) system, or a cesspool, works well over time. Regular pumping helps prevent solids from escaping into the drainfield and clogging soil pores. While pumping frequency is a function of use, MassDEP recommends that systems be pumped at least once every three years for homes not having a garbage disposal. If the home's system has a garbage disposal, it should be pumped every year. If you are a nonresidential system owner, you should determine how often to pump based on prior accumulation and pumping records. Often you can look at pumping intervals to gauge your pumping schedule (i.e., previously did you wait too long before having your tank pumped and it was filled to capacity, or could you have waited a little longer to pump?). An amazing number of system owners believe that if they haven't had any problems with their systems, they don't need to pump out their tanks. Unfortunately this is a serious and sometimes costly misconception. As your system is used, solid materials settle to the bottom of the tank, forming a sludge layer. Grease and lightweight materials float to the surface of the septic tank as scum. Normally, properly designed tanks have enough space for up to three to five years' safe accumulation of sludge. When the sludge level increases beyond this point, sewage has less time to settle properly before leaving the tank. As the sludge level increases, more solid wastes escape into the soil absorption system (SAS). If the SAS becomes so clogged that it cannot absorb liquid at the rate at which it enters the tank, the plumbing will "back up" or unsanitary wastewater will bubble to the surface. When hiring a pumper, be sure the local Board of Health has licensed them, and always make sure you get a paid receipt from the pumper that spells out the details of the transaction (how many gallons were pumped out of the tank, the date, the charges, and any other pertinent results). Retain this receipt for your records. The pumper sends a copy of this report to the local Board of Health. ryoung

RE: Dumping RV tanks into home syptic system

Properly functioning septic system does NOT need routine pumping. Not true. What happens to the solids? ryoung
