RE: So you are sitting by the fire, and you hear

It may not be Coyotes!! It might be a high pitched whine from another camper complaining about the campfire! I like the beep beep answer best.

RE: Air systen cycles (blows off pressure) every three seconds

My guess would be the unloader valves in the compressor. If it acessable you may not have to remove the compressor.

RE: Tire question

I just put a set of Firestone Fs561's on my coach.Mine had 295/75/22.5 on and I went to 1100 22.5 in the same weight rating. I have put 7000 miles on them and I am very pleased with all aspects of them. They also run very quiet. They were also very reasonably priced.

RE: 5 Dangerous Road Trips in the USA

The mention of Ice Road Truckers kind of flavours the whole post. Those guys are so ridiculous it makes me and others who have trucked in those conditions laugh. The same goes for the TV show Highway though Hell. The Coquihalla Highway in BC. I worked there hauling logs out of there when they built it in 1985ish. Several winters after that we hauled logs across it daily without incident in all kinds of weather. The new drivers of this day can't do it without catastrophe for the tv crews. The I 10 out of Phoenix,really!

RE: Making the neighbors angry

I always thought kids could have a good time and respect others around them at the same time. Kids will be kids and have fun but they really don't need to be screaming at the top of their lungs. If they don't learn to respect others around them when they are a kid then they probably never will and will call the neighbour a grumpy old fool. I enjoy kids having a good time and will encourage them to have a good time.

RE: Any steep grades from Reno, NV to Brookings, OR?

We have not travelled the 199, but did take the 299 last spring. I would not recommend it. It is up and down and long and winding. There are some narrow sharp corners,and rocks on the road. It was interesting but I will never do it again.

RE: My normal morning routine

I hear ya Jim. I come out and get the pot started and then go and get ready for work. I come out a few minutes later and there is coffee all over the place. The dang filter folded over and caused a over flow and there is grounds in the pot and everything is BAD. The worst part is it happens often!

RE: Odd comments

When someone asks, how are you, I answer Better than nothing! We were in a Restaurant with friends and were being seated by this fellow accompanied by a young gal he was training. He was telling us all the things that they served. I asked if they served children, and he said yes we do it is a family restaurant. I said I will have two over easy. He laughed but the young girl looked shocked.

RE: Blowout Results

If your cruisin along the road on cruise and a tire blows the automatic reaction would probably be to hit the brakes to disengage the cruise. Just sayin. That was a horrific crash and I hope the people recover fully from their injuries. My heart goes out to them for the loss of their dog.

RE: Water Pump switches not working

I just replaced mine in my Imperial. It was located behind my monitor panel for the tanks etc. The way I found mine was by working all the switches and found the clicking noise coming from behind that panel. I ordered mine from Northwest RV. It was $44. My local rv dealer wanted $120

RE: Disaster Strikes

Suspect #2 has that look that says wasn't me I am a much better driver then that. Joking aside, I am sorry this happened to you. Just another life experience and a good thing no one was hurt.

RE: RV Blows Tire Causing Roll-Over Video

To me it looks like he was on cruise and by time he reacted it was gone. It didn't appear to slow down until he hit the barrier.

RE: Cowcatchers

Most of these Moose bumpers are made out of Aluminum,so they remain light. They are hinged on a half inch bolt on each side. Strong??? They may stand up to a deer hit but in my opinion they are there for looks. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder,because I think they even look dumb. I went to work for a company and the truck they gave me had one of those things on it and it was a huge pain in the --- when you wanted to lift the hood. First you had to let that thing down and then put it back up after, and oh did I mention the rattling that drove me to cut the thing off.

RE: Replace Cooktop With Unit With Oven

I changed our in our Imperial and it was not that bad.We had drawers under the cooktop and I just removed 2 drawers and put a piece of oak facing under the oven and it looks like a factory install. The gas line hooks up at the back behind the rear burner on the cooktop. It was the same location on the oven. I reconeected it and checked the connection with a soapy solution and no bubbles no leaks. Hope that helps.

RE: GM predicts what driving will be like in 1976

Due to the lack of skills presented by many drivers I have seen, I think alot of the cars out now are self driving. Too bad there are so many accidents as a result.

RE: Havasu River Resorts?

Are they the same sales people that sold the London Bridge to Lake Havasu? Watch out they are good!!

RE: You just cannot fix stupid

Years ago I was listening to an interview of a park ranger on the radio. This was in Jasper National park. The ranger said the dumbest thing he had ever seen was a dad putting jam on his two little kids hands in effort to get a bear over to lick their hands so he could get a picture. We travel through there often and there are usually big bull elk grazing beside the road with their huge racks. Countless times we have seen people trying to get close enough to get a picture of them touching these animals.I can't get away fast enough as I do not need to see the results.

RE: Floating floor - Who installed them?

I put laminate through our coach and like above left the gap around the edges. It has been five years and it has seen -35 to +95 temperatures and no problems. I have my recliner chair bolted down through the laminate and no problems.
