RE: Ever notice ?

We were boon docking at a Casino lot and parked our coach with the towed behind. We unhooked the towed and went shopping and when we returned some jerk had parked behind the coach where our towed was supposed to be. There were lots of othe places to park but he chose there. Sooo, I parked our towed behind his car not leaving him room to get out. Needles to say there were words exchanged and after being told the more ignorant he gets the longer he will wait he finally admitted he was wrong. I don't think he will do that again.

RE: We crossed the Canadian border Wed. 24 May

Those that don't want to come to Canada because they cant bring an arsenal should think of going to some other country where they run around with automatics and shoot everything in sight. It may be they could do some good there. It is not that you cannot bring firearms into Canada, it is you cant bring certain firearms into Canada. If you choose not to come to Canada with an automatic rifle with a humongous clip that holds a pile of ammo, or an auto handgun, that does not bother me at all. I will feel safer. Yes we have crooks here with guns. We have traveled in the western US fairly extensively and met alot of nice friendly people that appreciated our business. We have met a few rude ones as well as we have in Canada as well. The big difference is they didn't trash foreigners on RV Net.

RE: We crossed the Canadian border Wed. 24 May

We cross the border almost weekly as we live close to the border. My wife got a different car and last week we took it across and the American customs guy asked why we had this car. I told him we just bought it and he said ok it is now in the system. Most likely the licence number is what they record. They know what's going on!

RE: Results of super steer on DP

I have been debating what shocks would provide the best ride and handling of my short(34ft) DP. Been researching shocks but found a site that sells super steer air bag controllers. They install on each air line and prevent the rush of air out of the bag on hard turns/side winds thus improve handling. Interested if anyone has them and the results. Also Koni vs Bilstein on Spartan Summit dp chassis. Normal typical loaded travel weight 20000/21000 lbs of 22000. I want better handling not a harsh ride in trying to trying to make improvements. Any suggestions? You typically don't get that much air exhausting the airbags on corners and in wind. Personally I would not go for air bag controllers as I think they would inhibit the way the airbags are supposed to work. I would have the ride height checked for your coach it may make a difference. Shocks are a debatable subject with lots of differing opinions. I don't think a different shock will make that much difference. Some here say that one is way better than the other and some say they didn't see a great change. A shorter coach will ride rougher than a longer one so it may be what it is. My coach on some roads rides terrible and there is lots of road noise. But on other roads it rides great and handles like a dream .

RE: Unbelievable how cheap they can make them.

I had a Forest River Sierra 5ver and was not impressed with the lack of quality. The Sierra is not the cheapest trailer in the Forest River lineup.

RE: Movie Oddities

As someone that spent most of my working life around big trucks I shake my head at some movie scenes. Like a truck hitting a bunch of police cars and carrying on down the road without even a bent bumper. Another one is spinning their drive wheels taking off. My wife says "its the movies" while shaking her head at me.

RE: Battery failure understood

On a fifth wheel I had I was going through batteries when I left it plugged in constantly. I finally put them on a timer and they only charged a couple hrs. a day and I had no more problems.

RE: Fridge not staying lit when traveling

I had the same problem and had a tech look at it. He put a new thermocoupler in and cleaned things up and it stays lit while driving now even in heavy wind.

RE: tires parked on concrete

In another life I worked in a tire retreading plant. I have seen many tires that have been buffed down for recap and never found any of these oils or evidence of concrete or anything else leaching into the tire. Out of the thousands of tires I seen I'm sure a few were parked on concrete. I have never seen a tire dry rotted on the inside.

RE: Nice Parking Job

Sometimes when things go really bad you really don't want to use your own washroom. Hence a hurried park job at Walmart and use their facilities. He really didn't care at the moment. Really I rather use my own toitet than a public. Might as well sell the camper and stay at motel 6 and travel by car. I posted that with tongue in cheek, meaning to add a little humor. Sheesh lighten up man!! I did not catch the humor either. I suspect that the written word does not convey the tone of the voice in your head. Ok, sorry I didn't mean to offend you Walmart Shoppers!

RE: Why? Driving observation

Do as I say not as I do!! Cops are human too, they even make mistakes. I have seen a couple doozers as well!

RE: Why? Driving observation

People drive like that because they can! Even when they get in an accident they usually don't get what they deserve. A couple things I will add to the list is people driving with their earbuds on listening to their tunes cranked up and oblivious to what is happening around them. Wearing hoodies while driving and not having peripheral vision. Many are bored with driving so they have to be entertained.

RE: Helena Montana to Calgary CA to Vancouver to Seattle WA

There are several different routes to take from Calgary though BC. All of them will be very scenic and the roads are not a worry. We have traveled most of these routes in many different RV,s and had no problem at all. The National Parks are some of the best scenery you will find and as mentioned the Okanagan is very nice as well. Like Frank said the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State is a worthwhile trip as well and you can continue up the coast right into California. You have a great trip ahead of you that I am sure you will enjoy.

RE: Dropped the fiver today, and how was your day? Part 1

Sorry to hear of your problem. I lived not far from you for a few years and it sounds like the tow guy was an old oil field guy. They get things stuck really bad and just hook on and pull. It is just iron to them and no remorse. I hope your truck gets fixed right and hopefully the trailer will be replaced. Good luck.

RE: 5th wheel opinions

We are in the same boat as you. We are selling the DP and going back to a fiver. Our HR Imperial has spoiled us and I don't think we can find a fiver as good of quality. We are looking for Arctic Fox, Citation(which is no longer made). Good luck in your search.

RE: Super Singles

If these posters want to go to super singles the they should just do it. They can find for themselves wether it is a good or bad thing. For my experience no I will stick with what I have.

RE: Spun motor home on I5

It does not matter how prepared you think you are it will still surprise you. In my driving days I had several front blow outs and no 2 were the same. Only one wanted to take me off the road. I had just pulled a long hill and was starting down the other side and it blew on a sharp corner that was banked toward the other side of the road. Luckily I was not going fast and got it stopped. That tire was 2 weeks old. I always ran good tires at proper pressures and checked them several times a day.
