RE: 7 way socket not working

What model and make truck do you have. If it is Chevrolet, check the fuse diagram-should be Stud #1-that takes a 50 amp fuse. If missing, you need to install one. If in place, check to see if it is blown. My 2006, 2013 and 2018 had them in place when I bought them. Buddies 2006 did not have one.

RE: RV Service and Repair??????????????

That smell was probably ammonia. If so, you will need a new unit.

Why would you need a separate tote for grey and black?

RE: Sad state of our National Parks-II

Let’s also update ourselves and not be scared-sh*tless with the word “socialism”. It’s not the 50’s or the 60’s anymore where this means Soviet Union, China, Cuba and North Korea. The new economic-political system now refers to it as the old-fashioned Communism and, Socialism currently is referred as Benevolent Capitalism or Democractic Socialism modeled by the Nordic countries: Denmark, Finland, Norway, Switzerland, etc. These countries have been surveyed to be the happiest and healthiest on earth with free college, universal healthcare, 48:1 CEO to worker pay gap (US is 354 times average worker), and comfortable social security pensions for seniors. Well-If you could convince American's that Finland's personal income rate of 51.6% and sales tax rate of 24% and Corporate rate of 20% along with Norway's 31.5% personal tax rate, sales tax of 25% and Corporate tax rate of 22% is a good thing. I think those who work for wages would be opposed Those who pay no or little taxes would like it and those are the voters the "Free Stuff", Free College, and Free Medicare politicians are courting.

RE: Where do you Post Campground Reviews?

I use Campground reviews as it has the most campgrounds. I do post reviews about 20% of the time.

RE: Sad state of our National Parks-II

Entitlements are why this country is going broke. Everyone wants someone else to pay the way for them. Look at the bozo’s running for office. They want to give away free healthcare, free college, loan forgiveness for kids who chose a degree in 19th Century French Gender Studies (and wondering why they can’t find a job)... but “the rich” will somehow be taxed enough to pay for it. Some could argue the country is "going broke" because many people, including about half the people that work for money, think the only people that should pay taxes are the people that work for their money. If you look back to the time in our country's history, you would see that there was a great growth in the middle class, (the people that spend money to make the economy grow) at the same time a large percentage of the population was given free or very low cost college education. At the same time, the tax rate on higher incomes was much higher than it has been at any time since. As to the wrinkly discount. The lake I go to most often, has both State Park and COE CGs. The State charges $1.00 more than COE. If the state was full, we would make or res at COE. But now that I have the discount, I put up with the less favorable sites, and driving thru both, I bet without the discount that COE CG would bring in less money. BTW, as host at a state park, I know there is a space on the check-in program for donations. Bet there is a box for that on the Fed program to. Well said by both of you. Nothing is free and taxing the rich is not the answer although some who are politicians and rich say that is will work. Millions of people cheer with delight when those who seek to deceive them shout "Free" Free" Free" and tax the rich" From the tax foundation: "In 2016, the top 50 percent of all taxpayers paid 97 percent of all individual income taxes, while the bottom 50 percent paid the remaining 3 percent. The top 1 percent paid a greater share of individual income taxes (37.3 percent) than the bottom 90 percent combined (30.5 percent).Nov 13, 2018"

RE: Nose Piece Waxing/Cleaning Bugs Off

The brush in the kit reaches the top without any problem. No ladders required https://www.amazon.com/Aero-Cosmetics-Waterless-Aircraft-Restrictions/dp/B006AG7ZM4/ref=sr_1_13?keywords=Wash+and+wax&qid=1564787302&s=gateway&sr=8-13 Thanks but I'm not spending $239 for a wash brush and some wax You can buy that same telescoping brush at Walmart. Some have a hose attachment for the handle. Mine broke after a few uses/

I was fly fishing and her kids are wading along the shallow side. I am reasonably good looking. Maybe she just wanted to start a conversation. LOL :h:B

RE: Sad state of our National Parks-II

BTW, I met a woman and her children (no husband around) in Touloumne Meadows who told me after she found out that I live just 3 hours away and would camp and visit there at least yearly, on how lucky I am to have these where in "Texas, there is nothing." I don't understand why someone from Texas would make that statement. Perhaps ignorance on her part. We have 13 National parks, forests, recreational areas and monuments in Texas and 51 state parks. Been to many of them and each has it's uniqueness and beauty.

RE: Sad state of our National Parks-II

California included increased funding for state parks as a result of its economic recovery and 4 years of surplus. Washington state and Oregon have excellent well-maintained state parks with topnotch camping facilities. They may have had a surplus but saddled with massive debt. https://www.usdebtclock.org/state-debt-clocks/state-of-california-debt-clock.html

RE: Sad state of our National Parks-II

You are the luckiest people on the face of the earth, to live in your country with the vast amount of personal freedoms you enjoy. Just look to your north to see what happens to a country when they can't see the forest for the trees. We started out at roughly the same time as you all, but chose to keep the European/British style of government, instead of adopting your federal constitutional republic with 3 separate and equal segments of government methodology. Over the years, while we stumbled and agonized over what was wrong with our system, you developed into the greatest bastion of personal freedom on the planet, bar none. You flourished while we struggled, and now you're a giant compared to most countries on the planet, us included. While you may have had some speed bumps along the way, and arguably aren't a perfect society overall, you overcame them all, and haven't missed a major beat since your birth in 1776. I wish we had joined you back then and shared a common legacy going forward, but it was not to be. That's why we've lived in your shadow for over 240 years, and depend on you far more than you might ever depend on us. In population alone, you dwarf us, with or without immigration, and that speaks volumes about how different our paths have been, since we all began moving forward from our common ancestry. Economically, there's no comparison either, so don't get me started. If it wasn't for us living next door under your protective military umbrella, I think we'd already be speaking Mandarin or Russian by now. Thanks for that, as I had to learn to speak French all those years ago, and I don't want to learn a 3rd or 4th language any time soon. :B I thank you for your post and recognizing that, although we are not perfect, we are the best that there is. We have spent trillions of dollars helping other countries, saving the world and Europe from extinction twice, and sacrificed the blood of countless Americans to do so.

RE: Psoriasis

He also said they don't really bother the immune system, just target the abnormal autoimmune response. Dale Not questioning your doctor but if it were me I would have another discussion to clarify that statement. All of the biological drugs have side affects. Usually rare but they include TB, increase in skin cancer, lung and liver problems and lowered immune systems to name a few. I have been on Enbril, Methotrexate and Folic Acid for Rheumatoid Arthritis for about 10 years and last year have 4 procedures to remove basal cell carcinoma. Last week my Dermatologist said I had no new spots during my annual check up. My Rheumatologist said I get anymore she will change to a new medication but it has a greater chance of creating lung problems. It's hard getting old.:)

RE: Tariffs trip up the all-American RV industry

https://youtu.be/0JDoll8OEFE Btw coruption is punishable by death penalty in China So is illegal drug pushers Why China has the best high speed railways Enjoy https://youtu.be/hs392e7z99Y China and drugs https://youtu.be/Yoqj-gmDgkM You and I can trade posts supporting our positions all day long but to suggest that China does not export illegal drugs to the U. S. is disingenuous as is saying China's new train system is not riddled with issues, poor construction and improper materials and corruption. www.newsweek.com/forget-mexico-us-being-flooded-illegal-drugs-china-652494 One can order illegal drugs via internet and have them shipped to the U.S. and delivered in as little as 10 days. https://www.statnews.com/2018/01/24/china-fentanyl-usps/ https://www.fastcompany.com/1749952/problem-chinas-high-speed-rail Note that none of these links are from Fox News.:) I am guilty of helping to get the OP's post off track so I will not make any further comments unless they are tariff related.:) Ive never said China doesnt export drugs to US so dont put words in my mouth,anyhow Question is WHY people here use it? Imo if someone is dum enough to use deadly drugs they can drop dead as far as Im concerned. less drag on our health care and economy. China had drug problems too but learned how to deal with it,send people to rehab and cure them.and execute drug dealers. Works good since there are 1.5 bilion of chinese now China has been around for 5000 years so they just maybe bit more evolved smarter then we are. I predict we will lose the tarrif war,Tramp bankrupted 10 busineses after all and dont listen to smart advisors just fires everyone who disagree w him. No, you did not say China does not export drugs to the U.S. but you insinuated they didn't with your You Tube video along with several other videos that insinuated everything is peachie keen in China and led me to believe they are superior to America.
