RE: Favorite really (!) bad joke.

When his brother got drunk they called him Al Co Bong! Bad just gets worse.

RE: Towing behind a MH

If it were me and to keep things simple I would go with a truck 4 down and the bikes in the back. No storage spot for trailer, more compact, easy hitch up and go. That is just me, maybe you do not want to be without your jeep and in that case the tandem tow dolly or trailer is the only option. It will be long!

RE: Here's your sign...

Op should not spend any time around a dump station. There is alot worse to be seen there! Do people wear gloves when they use toilet paper? I would not use my water hose inside my slinky but I have seen many that do. They seem alive and well.

RE: Why assume I like your music

Other than the attack on my ears the other thing that bothers me about rap is these guys with their baggy pants with one hand flipping around and the other where it shouldn't be. Momma taught me not to do that.

RE: Changing Oil

Opinions will vary, as with any discussion, but there's one thing, I'm absolutely and positively convinced of and that is that we're wasting far too much oil in this country with unnecessary changes and all this while we're running threads on the price and MPG of fuel. Now seriously, when was there ever a documented failure of an engine, because the oil hadn't been changed frequently enough and most likely the causes were because it was without oil? I agree and I think this is the best answer. These engines are designed for long engine life and oil sampling just to see if you should change it is a waste of money. I it were a high mileage engine or was showing sins of trouble that would be different. I change mine somewhere between 10 to 15,000 miles. I have ran truck engines over 900,000 kilometers before rebuild and never had an oil sample.

RE: Why assume I like your music

We once had an older couple as neighbors that lived beside us. Across the back fence some new younger people moved in and liked to have their **** music blaring. The little old gal would move their stereo speakers to their rear patio doors and put on her heavy opera music loud enough it almost broke windows. Problem solved!

RE: Couch out the door

I have had a full flexsteel couch and a folding couch out the entry door as well. They both came apart and to make it easier I unbolted the passenger seat and it worked great. Same thing for bringing in the new ones. They just need to come apart.

RE: Has anyone rated Walmart parking lot experiences?

Nothing wrong with staying at a Walmart or any other lot in my opinion. You have to expect noise during the night with other rv's coming and going along with trucks. We always ask permission and buy a few items. There is the odd one that we looked at and kept moving. If there a other rv's parked there then I feel it is safer.

RE: Super Singles

I guess super singles are immune to flats or blowouts.

RE: Don Rickles Passes Away

In his own words(I don't really like you) but I did enjoy his comedy. He could put people down and make them laugh at the same time. Sad to see the greats disappearing.

RE: VIP Steering Wheel Parts

After nothing but problems with mine I removed the two bezels with the buttons from the wheel and built a small box to enclose them and installed it on the side console. I removed the cladding off the steering column and re routed the wiring to the box. I had to put a horn button on the box as well. It works every time now and no more horn honking and wiper malfunction. I find it as handy to access as well. I made two small wood blanks to fit where the bezels came off the wheel and painted them black to match. It may not be every ones solution but works for me. That clock spring was nothing but problems for me.

RE: Rear wheel leaking oil - third time

I'm curious how much oil it is leaking? A gush, small puddle, or just a couple of drops? It can matter when diagnosing over text. :) At first, it was making a small puddle when I stopped, maybe one inch by two inch. Now, it seen to have slowed down to a line then it stop. I did had oil it and tilted the axle on both side and drove around. I don't quite understand what you mean by tilting the axle and having oil at each end. Are you sure you are not over filling the diff. with oil? It is full when it runs out the plug on the side where you fill it. Another cause for wheel seals can be overheating brakes, I don't know if that applies or not. Clogged vent tube as well. Like said above it may be a problem with the hub if it is the same one that keeps failing.

RE: Super Singles

Good luck when you blow one of them on your coach. I have run them on the front of gravel and mixer trucks ans would never consider it on my coach. I ran them on steer axles and in slippery conditions they were terrible and on the rear I can't see them being much better. I think your a tad confused Slickest1 You run them on drive axles, not steer axles as you just stated above! Also clearly stated in my post above that you Can't limp down the road if you have a blowout. Not looking for any luck. LOL Not confused at all! I realize you were talking drive axle use. My point was if one blows on the rear (drive) axle it will not be a nice experience. At least if one of your duals blows the other will keep that corner up. It is one thing on a truck or trailer but totally different on a coach with the lack of clearance. No you can't limp into town. I have drove trucks with the big tires on the front (different yes)and in snow and mud they do not handle better. They are like ski's. That is my opinion and after seeing super singles on trucks and talking with different drivers I would not consider them an improvement. Thats just my take others will differ.
