RE: Cataract?????

When they remove the cataract they implant a lens. You may still require glasses for reading.

RE: Cataract?????

My wife just had both eyes done a couple of months apart. It was completely painless she said. They froze them with a series of drops. I said with the implants that her eyes stuck out a bit more now. Just kidding but I got slapped anyway. She can't believe how well she can see now and colors are so much brighter.

RE: My over 13' rv went under a 13' clearance bridge

Are you sure your air conditioners are still there? Years ago hauling a 980 cat loader with a nice row of 6 lights on the roof, on a lowbed equipment trailer my boss told me that I was ok to take the #1 highway into Vancouver BC. He said he hauled bigger stuff through there all the time. It was a rushed trip and at 60 miles an hr I removed the lights off that loader on a low over pass. I am glad that was all that connected.

RE: I have a weight dilemma.. what would you do?

I too think for the size of the trailer I would go to a dually. I would also make sure it had the proper transmission cooler and on a diesel an exhaust brake. The dually will most likely have the sie of tires that will pack the weight with some extra margin. The wife will look at the new dually and fall in love with it and say I am glad we are rid of that other thing. It is a long shot but Maybe!

RE: UPDATE: General DP Question (air leak in fuel line)

I would check your oil for signs of water in it or check your radiator for signs of oil fuel. It sounds like a head gasket to me.

RE: Turbo boost

Mine hits 26 pounds of boost maximum. It is bone stock and from what I have heard from others that is the norm.

RE: Just had a funny thought

I have seen some that I would like to lock in there. Problem is it is not sound proof! The trailers I have owned had to be manually locked from the outside.

RE: Which one of you Canadians are camping in Pittsburgh?

That is the biggest Walmart I have ever seen!!

RE: Oxymorons

Oxymoron-- someone who sits in a casino for hours breathing in the oxygen they pump in to keep you awake whilst feeding your hard earned money into the slot machines.

RE: Lubricating U-joints/drive shaft

I grease my commercial truck every week. I usually put on 1000 to 2000 miles per week. That said it takes several pumps of grease per u-joint. So it all depends on how many miles you put on between you service points. In my opinion 5000 miles is pushing it, but that's just me.

RE: Here is a topic for you.

How much water would it take to clean the Grizzly? I agree water would be better on the black tank.

RE: I'm better because...

Stand in front of the mirror when you read your list and you will feel great about yourself without involving anyone else.

RE: Blowout at 70 mph

Over the years of trucking I have blown several steer tires. Most were a non issue and I just slowed down and stopped on the shoulder. One tire a brand new Bridgestone (I have used many since) blew at about a week old and wow it pulled me onto the wrong side of the road before I could blink. Luckily there was no oncoming traffic at the time I I got it back on my side. The point is, you can't tell what it will do and that video is a controlled situation and the driver is prepared for it. No matter how many miles you have driven and how great of driver you are it still will be a surprise when it happens.In some cases ramming the throttle to the floor may help in other cases it may be the opposite.

RE: Please drive safely

Some of the sights you see in Walmart late at night, scares the heck out of me that they may get in a car and drive. Yes, people be careful.

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.
