RE: And Texas Caves In

RE: And Texas Caves In

You can't argue with Texas.....they just don't think enough for things to matter to them. Surely you jest. Statements like that from California are to be laughed at and discarded as a model for anything.:)

RE: 2021 College Football Recruiting Rankings Top (16)

I can't believe some of those rankings BUT time will tell and it is early. Will have to go beyond commitments and look at the signings and how they go. I believe LSU should be slightly higher but until we see how the QB situation goes it is anyone's guess. Sadly, Coach O filed for divorce from his wife of 23 years last week. The Tiger nation is in shock. She had stood behind him for many tough years. That brave woman has had too many surgeries to count. Scoliosis at a very young age. Her colon was nicked during one surgery and she almost died. A walking miracle. https://www.si.com/college/2018/07/02/kelly-orgeron-lsu-tigers

RE: 20 year loan for RV?

"You can deduct the mortgage interest as a second home." Not necessarily... recent changes in the new tax laws have restricted if not eliminated this deduction entirely for most folks. Better check with your accountant/tax advisor. :C :) With the new tax laws it is getting harder to use deductions. Married filing jointly has a stand deduction of $27,000. You must have deductions greater than that to claim anything.

RE: Is A New 2018 Still New?

No offense but it seems, to me, that you are emotionally attached to that unit. If so, time to step back and readjust your thinking. Emotional attachment clouds our thinking.

RE: Is A New 2018 Still New?

Thanks for all the feedback. It's priced about $5,000 below the best price on a new 2020 model. I think I will offer about $5,000 lower and if they won't take that I'll probably try to get the new 2020 model. Don't forget that RV's have a very high markup. A $5,000 reduced price over a new unit is not enough money. What is the MSRP of a new unit vs. what a negotiated price? Lot's of money between the 2.

RE: 2020 year end and Q4 pickup sales

I dont know about the 1500's they may have had enough of those but they certainly didnt on the HD's. They are still trying to get caught up on those. The local dealers around here certainly didnt have any new HD's to sell. Yes. They had a glut of sedans and smaller cars because they were not selling and now we see the Big 3 stop making most of those models. The current trend is SUV's. Loved my 4 different Impala's but the also killed it.

RE: 2020 year end and Q4 pickup sales

GM suffered a 40 day strike strike in 4th quarter 2019. GM said the strike, which ran from Sept. 16 through Oct. 25, cost the company sales of 191,000 vehicles and cut quarterly pretax earnings by $1.39 per share. For the full year, the strike cost GM $1.89 per share, the company said.

RE: Rheumatoid Arthritis.

I have Rheumatoid. I started with excruciating pain in the shoulders and wrist to the point I was unable to function with help needed to do anything. I am currently on Methotrexate-7 each 2.5 mg. 3 tablets one day and 4 tablets several days later. Also Chloroequine (Plaquenil) at 200mg twice daily. Those two drugs are prescribed most often. Enbril taken under the skin once weekly. They do a good job of controlling the pain but still have stiffness and pain at times. I also have Osteopenia and maxed out on it so it is no longer viable. Don't be surprised if you also have it. I have an appointment with my doctor in a couple of weeks and will probably prescribed Prolia by infusion. You will be x-rayed, blood drawn and checked for TB. Good luck and keep us informed on how you are doing.

RE: Charge for each pet ??? your thoughts

I would like to hear from a park owner that has looked into insurance policy pricing for the campground that allows pets versus not allowing pets. If the charge is used to cover an increase in insurance cost because dogs are allowed, they are charging the correct patrons. I don't like the idea floated by earlier posters relating the charge to park employees cleaning up after the dogs. This implies that if I pay my $5 I don't have to clean up the mess. I paid for someone else to do it. They are not going to tell you that the fee is to clean up after your pet, but the reality is, someone has to do it. They cant just leave doggie do everywhere. Quite often it is in vacant sites. Do you want to pull in to find a nice pile in your campsite. Been to 100's of campgrounds. Never seen an employee pick up after the idiots who don't clean up after their pets.

RE: purchase

don,t belive everything you read ,coachman is one of the better units. yep your going to have some problems but they all do even $500.k rv,s do a very very good walk threw and take notes ,things should be fixed before it leaves the lot. because once you take it home its yours. and get a out the door price or you,ll see add on,s coming , Wife's cousin just bought a used unit from Foretravel in Nacogdoches. Her nephew is a production manager there. Said they completed a 1+ million dollar unit for George Strait. He took it on tour and came back with a list of 40 items that needed correction. Sometimes it is the luck of the draw.

RE: China shipping

Being a 2017 shouldn't that piece fall under a "bumper to bumper warranty? Not sure if it is the one you need but I Googled "fuel line return connector for 2017 ford F-250" and got a lot of hits.

RE: My Picks College Football

Certainly a great day for LSU fans. Give Clemson credit for never giving up and I believe Lawrence will regain his form next year and may well win another Championship. I see no other college QB of his stature at this time. Let's hope Brennan will continue to bring LSU greatness next year. Bags, got any tips on junior college transfers available? Perhaps another OSU QB?:B

RE: My Picks College Football

Speaking of Pro football.:B. I am not good a picking winners but the 4 teams last week that I picked won. Yesterday my 2 picks won. If my picks-Houston and Seattle win I'm gonna place a huge bet on next weeks games. The Titans certainly put on a show last night. Haven;t followed them much last year but I really like what they have done.

RE: Mexico Medical

If you have Medicare they will pay a large portion of the cost. If you want to go there from Colorado I would consider the cost of traveling, staying there, incidentals for the several days of post-op and then go back a week later for followup.

RE: Texas Beach Camping

Staying on the beach will expose you to almost constant wind and blown sand. That's why all the trees are leaning to the West
