RE: Yum...tapeworms in your salmon

Some of my weird relatives are not even that far removed! Maybe it is because they ate Sushi. I like everything I eat WELL done.

RE: dog lovers

Our Jack Russel pup 8 months is very well trained already. We live in a gated community and carry a bag at all times. Our last Jack that we lost a year ago had a strange habit of backing under a tree or shrub. It made it private for him I guess but a real pain to clean up. Cleaning it up when it happens makes it much easier than leaving it for awhile.

RE: What I learned about new big DPs at the Tampa RV show.

I hear you about the weight on these big coaches. You are basically driving the equivalent of a loaded truck with three axles. My old coach on two axles weighs 33000 which is enough as far as I|am concerned.It has also a dark color on the exterior that seems to cause the paint to crack or haze. I see not only coaches but all rv's seem to be leaning toward the dark interiors and exteriors.

It would be interesting to watch him unload that thing!

RE: Retirement savings

How much is enough anymore? Being debt free and having a reasonable good pension income and a few bucks tucked away, you still wonder will I have enough. The cost of living keeps going up but retirement income rises alot slower. Will the Medications we need take a big hike in cost? Will I need to put a new roof on the house? Will the car or the Motorhome need a major repair? Advice to the younger set put away what you can,try to get debt free, and have a good time because getting old you just worry about things beyond your control.

RE: Canadian Exodus?

It is 80F/27C at noon today in South Texas. Put a price on that. I'd be happy to change $5000. on par with ya!! Put a price on that. I am sure there are holders of other foreign currencies that would like a better exchange rate also. Pesos, Dollars, or Pounds, what matters is the perceived value for the money spent. I don't go North or South to save money. I guess I could go to Mexico! But I still have to cross the U.S. My Motorhome is not very good in deep water so the other countries are out. If your trip suddenly cost $1800. more you would not blink. Most RVers are complaining when fuel prices and RV park prices increase.

RE: Difficult but serious question

If he's a close friend of yours, then I would think you could be straight up and honest with him and talk through it. Just have him come over and walk him through what he is faced with, and just be a friend and be honest. He likely will clearly understand. Mike Good answer and honesty is always the best policy. A fellow I worked with a few years back bought a fifth wheel. He did this without his wife looking at it. When he got it home she went to inspect it. She was 400+ lbs. She got in through the main door but got stuck in the bathroom. She didn't even try to go up to the bedroom. He wound up trading it back in on a much higher end unit with bigger facilities.

RE: Cost of driving now vs then

I wish I had some of the old cars I once had. Cars that were 2 to 3 thousand new back then are now 5 thousand and up and then you have to spend 10's of thousands to restore them. Some of the cars you see that go across the block at Barrett Jackson is insane to what they originally cost.

People on retirement incomes no matter what their income is it does not go up as fast a expenses do. Big factor is exchange rate, health insurance(out of country) fuel prices, increase in rv park prices and on and on it goes. Sometimes is just makes more sense to stay home by the fireplace.

RE: Firestone VS Bridgestone Class A Tire

I have 2 years on a set of Firestone FS 561's and they are great. Firestone is now made by Bridgestone so are of the same quality.

RE: Looking to hire mentor/share expenses for 2-6 weeks

I would suggest a smaller class C. They can be self contained and have most everything you need and not that hard to learn how to drive. If you like the lifestyle you can then upgrade to something bigger and more comfortable. There is plenty of good help and info. on these forums to answer any concerns. Good luck.

RE: Apple being sued by Texas couple.

If the cell phone companies could come up with a phone that would instill common sense into the user then we will have a win. Left up to most users we are loosing the battle.

RE: Apple being sued by Texas couple.

So many people do not want laws to rule their life!! They will gladly let a cell phone take their common sense over.

RE: Heater Core Replaced, Now Blows Cold Air

My Freightliner chassis has yellow shutoff valves for the cab heat water lines back near the engine. You might see if you have those and make sure that they are open. http://www.irv2.com/attachments/photopost/data/500/HeaterShutoffValve1.JPG http://www.irv2.com/attachments/photopost/data/500/HeaterShutoffValve2.JPG Like said above or follow the heater hose up to the engine there may be a valve type tap that is shut off. The mechanic may of shut it off so the antifreeze would not leak out while changing the core and forgot to turn it back on.

RE: Supplemental Brakes Confession Time

Don't buy the the opinions that it is required by law. Buying small tractor in Nebraska, I was offered new 7000 lb equipment trailer with no brakes. I was driving 4000 lb SUV and would be perfectly legal. Toads are not trailers and are legal to tow with no brakes in all states last time I was checking, but there might be updates in last years. Still if you can find brake system that is really reliable and doesn't cost more than the toad, you can't go wrong with it. BTW since the incident above, whenever I drive in Nebraska I make sure I don't do sudden braking. A 4000 lb vehicle pulling a 7000 lb. trailer with no brakes may be legal. Just because there is no law saying a toad is a trailer you can throw common sense aside! It is pure stupid in my opinion. Even if you are clairvoyant and can avoid a sudden stop.
