RE: Do you like your electric toilet

You can buy the lower rise toilets(foot flush) that should work.

RE: We Survived a Fatal Accident...

I am so sorry you had that happen to you. So sad the man lost his life. I think your coach handled the impact very well considering all things. You obviously loved that coach and it was faithful to the end to you and your wife in that you were not injured. Good luck in finding another coach.

RE: Towing a large vehicle

I would think your best option would be an older Diesel pusher with at least 350 hp. There are quite a few out there with lower mileage for a reasonable buck.Like said your van will need either a drive shaft disconnect or a tow dolly may also work. There are sometimes older entertainer buses that have bunk beds in them that will sleep quite a few people. Good luck in your search.

RE: Geico Claim AFTER blowout

Sitting on the side of the road on a narrow highway is dangerous at best. Loading a coach with a flat tire on a flat bed is stupid in my opinion. I wouldn't have thought twice about doing what you did just for my own and others safety. I have limped into a town many times with a blown tire on trucks and never had a problem. I am sorry you had this problem and hope your insurance pays for the damage at least. It just goes to show that no matter how good your tires are things can happen and on a coach it can do alot of damage.

RE: RV - Flush It Or Can It?

For the record we flush the paper. People get all offended about others putting soiled paper in the garbage but not a second thought about where all the disposable baby diapers go. Yes in the garbage and baby ---- is no different than any other ----.Think about how much of that goes into garbage and the health implications of that! The amount of soiled diapers simply does not compare to the entire population bagging it. There just aren't that many infants compared to non infants. You can throw those wearing Depends into the mix too and they're still not that many people. Diapers and depends are a necessary evil simply because they can't be flushed. There is no other way. TP is an entirely different story. We have figured out how to flush TP away and process it vs. putting it in a landfill. I beg to differ. The amount of baby diapers that go into the garbage would be far more than soiled paper from an rv bathroom. No everyone in the world lives in an RV. When we raised kids they had cloth diapers and they got washed out in the toilet and the mess wash flushed where it should be. The diapers were then laundered. It is a sign of the times that people are too lazy to do that and yet they still tout themselves as being green and save the planet and keep plastic out of the land fill. Disposables have plastic and they are filled with S---!! For the record my TP goes in the toilet.

RE: Unpleasantly Surprised

My vote would be a coach that was flooded cleaned up and sold. Could have been in New Orleans or any other place that got flooded. It does not matter wwhat licence tag it has now.

RE: Tires

I know a lot of truckers that have used Double Coin tires with success. It is not like Michelin and Goodyear are without problems.

RE: What should I have done?

OP, I bet you are sorry you asked the question. If the same happened to any of the above including me we would all be p..... off!

RE: Bad day for some used RV buyers--Fire on the road home

So sorry for those folks. The fact they got out safely is what counts. One thing I will say is my wife always has her purse and bag with laptop passports and important stuff handy by the door so it can be grabbed as you exit.

RE: Will plumbing freeze? Toronto to Vancouver Mid-November

Running through the BC passes in winter can be a **** shoot. If the weather forecasts are for bad weather then best to not do it. If the forecast is for cold dry weather you would be fine. We traveled from Vancouver to Edmonton in our M/H once and it was snowing through the passes. It was not a fun trip. When we got into Alberta the temp. dropped to -20. The plumbing in our coach was fine but the dump valves froze solid. There are a lot of folks that head south for the winter and travel through Nov. through Jan. Most would be winterized.

RE: What should I have done?

The way I see it the same thing could happen to any one of the above posters. When you come up behind a semi even if you are a safe distance back your field of vision is blocked. From the time the OP seen the cop and reacted jumping on the brakes would be a moot point. I have had a similar thing happen and there was nowhere to go but by the emergency vehicle. It served no purpose for the cop to issue a ticket. Being pulled over and warned would have achieved the same result other than a BS ticket.

RE: First ever flat tire on any of my campers.

When you sound out the ST, sssssttt that is the sound of it going flat.

RE: Tire pressures and my air compressor

Kind of shocked that you have to carry that much pressure. What tires and what wheel/axle weights??? Yes 130 sounds high. If it is a small compressor with a small tank it will take awhile as compared to a tire shop compressor with a huge tank with lots of volume. Most of the large compressors of that size won't go higher than 150 lbs.

RE: An electric bus that drove 1,100 miles between charges...

It might be a great thing BUT if all these buses and other vehicles go electric what will that do to the rates we pay for power. There will be a need to improve the grid and that never comes cheap. As usual it will be the end users that foot that bill. The greenies want to shut down all the power plants proposed to be built so I guess that leaves wind power and solar. Hmmm!

RE: Super Singles

On a recent road trip I seen many trucks and trailers equipped with super singles. They are becoming more popular in the trucking industry. I personally would not put them on a motorhome. I too have many miles rving and never had a flat other than a screw in a tire. Like I said before if you ever had a flat on the rear at 60 mph it could be quite a ride. Without the other dual to keep that corner up and the lack of clearance on a motorhome the damage could be major. There may be many advantages to super singles and it a choice like everything else.

RE: Sacramento

Thanks for the info on Sacramento, but I never asked about Seattle, nor do I care. Maybe someone else might care, but since you are the only one on the road sorry to distract you.

RE: Sacramento

We were back and forth through Seattle last month and yes the road is rough but the traffic volume is just nuts. 7 hrs. from Everett to Salem. Sacremento is another city I hate to pass through. I haven't been through there for 2 years but will this winter. I was wondering if it would be better so thanks all for the heads up.
