RE: Tire prices all over

Yes a set of 4. And I have been buying tires from this guy for the last 20 years. Maybe that is why the price is better. OK when I first read it I thought it was per tire :S Yes it pays to shop I was quoted from 550 to 880 on my tires and that was each. Good luck with your purchase sounds like your tire guy is the one to go with. JimR

RE: Best vented washer dryer combo

I have Whirlpool washer and dryer that is stacked and the dryer vented. These are high end units and work very well and are superior over the Splendide Combo unit we had previously. -1001633/WFC7500VW/]http://www.whirlpool.com/laundry-1/laundry-2/washers-3/--1001633/WFC7500VW/ JimR

RE: Insurance Question when the MH is upsidedown on the loan

...I am currently on the Dave Ramsey plan and it is looking good. I was just hoping to avoid risk in case something goes the wrong way. Thank You all for the replies JimR I am quite familiar with Dave Ramsey and know that his advice would be to sell the MH at a loss and take out a personal loan to make up the short fall. Then live on rice and beans until the personal loan is paid. Good luck with your endeavors. That is correct but in my case the RV is the home. JimR

RE: Insurance Question when the MH is upsidedown on the loan

We just bought a new TT and unless you can afford to buy it outright I'll bet you are upside down in value before the ink is dry on the contract. Not true at all. You just need to make sure you put enough down that in the event you need to sell or something happens you aren't upside-down. OP, if you can't get gap insurance or whatever you need, start buying down on the principal of the note. Each month pay extra-whatever you can, even if it's just a small amount. Make sure you advise the loan company to apply it to principal. Over time this will help off-set the gap. yes on paying down the loan I am currently on the Dave Ramsey plan and it is looking good. I was just hoping to avoid risk in case something goes the wrong way. Thank You all for the replies JimR

Insurance Question when the MH is upsidedown on the loan

I have replacement cost insurance and the price is getting up there for coverage and I do not have gap insurance. Is there any insurance that would cover the gap after in the event of a total loss? In other words if I drop the replacment insurance is there an alternative? JimR

RE: Unfair return policy

Warranty begins the date of purchase, not the first date of use for almost everything. Actually, I can't think of anything that might be the exception. Sometimes we learn things the hard way. There are some items that are warrantied from the in service date and not the purchase date. JimR

RE: Mt Rushmore

Head 80 east to Rawlings and cut over to Casper (rt 287 an 220) to I-25 south to 18 at Orin and head to Lusk staying on 18 going north to Mule Creek Junction from there it depends on where you are going (Camp at). If you go to Cheyenne it will add about 100 miles vs the cut off to casper. Google map it. If staying in the Custer or Hill City area stay on 18 (east at the junction) go past Edgemont up into Custer or Hill City. You can also go up to Newcastle and then east to Custer. A couple years ago the road to Custer from Newcastle had a lot of the curves and road widened so should be not a bad road now If going to Rapid City (KOA) it probably would be best to go over to Hot Springs and get on 79 north to Rapid. The other route will get you there but you will hit very heavy traffic. Almost any way you go there will be ups and downs and some curves but not bad. I have taken all those routes in my 40 foot MH pulling a Jeep jimR

RE: Grocery Shopping on the Road

My favorite store is the one that is usually on a corner or the intersection of a small town or community out in the sticks some where. You know the kind like the one at Bath Corner SD just east of Aberdeen. I stopped there a couple weeks ago to get diesel fuel when I pulled up I could see through the front windows of the store and some folks were looking pointing and talking. When I went in to get the pump turned on the conversation started and did not end for about 30 minutes. Topics from dang that is a big rig and where you headed to and where you from? Nice folks there farmers and blue collar workers the foundation of the USA. Huh ... the pops seem to taste better there too. JimR

RE: Slow moving Speeder

OK here is my take on the mountain roads use the turn outs if safe OK that part is out of the way. NOW On a 4 lane road in sunny California it is illegal to impede traffic even if you are going over the speed limit, in other words you are in the passing lane and cars that want to go faster than you are stacked up back there. Now think about this you are at maybe 60 to 65 miles per hour, a pretty sizable ticket, but think how much money that those guys behind you will bring into the state at the speed trap just up the road a lot more money a lot MORE. So to put this into perspective they are going to be very unhappy with you for slowing down that money maker behind you and will probably get you for everything they can just to try and make up for the revenue you have lost the Great State of California. :B JimR Actually, this type of thing is not a problem as it relates to revenue generation in California like it is in some states. Especially not with the California Highway Patrol. The CHP budget comes entirely from vehicle registration fees. They get nothing from fine revenue from tickets. That all goes to the state general fund. It was set up that way on purpose to prevent the bosses at CHP from forcing the troopers to write more tickets just for the money. And it's a similar set up in cities as only a small percentage of the fine money comes back to the City and it does in to the City General fund. Yes that is correct JimR ps your to serious

RE: Good Sam App - Battery Drain isssues

Are you talking about the GS Camping app? If so I have no problems with battery drain and no running in the background per your instructions on how to check. I just used it and it loaded some data (so the app said) and did a search for nearby camps. All is good here in the Good Sam and Apple world. jimR

RE: Northern California- cheapest place to buy new refrigerator?

Not sure of what Northern California means as some folks consider any thing North of the Tehachapis as North Cal. But in California from Sac to Bakerspatch there is a lot of independent dealers and Camping World some of those might price match if you do not want to ship to you. PPL in Texas also has some fair prices but not sure about shipping costs. I had a dealer in Utah use a price match from Amazon for a Dometic portable freezer / refrigerator. I walked in asked about price and he looked it up on Amazon. JimR
