RE: 2015 Wrangler Unlimited questions

We have a '13 Unlimited with the 3 piece hard roof. The A/C does a good job keeping it cool inside. That said, with a bare hand against the bottom of the roof top, it is pretty warm, if not hot on a hot summer day. I keep saying I am going to glue some thin insulation (like the aluminized bubble wrap Lowes sells) on the undersides of the panels and the rear cover. Just the flat area, not the support 'beams'.

RE: RV Waste Disposal?

Just a word of caution to make sure you know exactly what it is before doing anything with it. Several years ago a heating oil company with a 'know it all driver' with little common sense came to a local school and told them he knew where the tank was. Drove around to the back part of the school and dumped 3000 gallons of heating oil into the septic system. Sometimes a little checking along with a little sniffing can save some major headaches

RE: Damon motorhomes

Bought a 2008 Essence Damon in 2008. New coach. Pretty nice trim interior. Sleep Number king bed, 4 door refrig, corian countertops, ceramic floor, 4 slides etc. Very few problems but when you do contact service or parts at the factory there was/is the most grouchy woman (I will not call her a lady) I have ever talked to. Did not want to give you parts numbers or information on other sources that would work. When I tried to order parts, she refused to sell to me saying I needed to buy from my dealer I bought from. I told her he had gone out of business and she very reluctantly finally gave me a part number for the cable that powers the step well cover. Likely will NOT buy another Thor coach for the way this woman acted and treated me. I will tell the dealer why and let him tell the people at the factory how he missed a quarter mil sale because of this woman.

RE: If I won the mega-millions lottery I would...

Friend of ours just won nearly a quarter million on a quick pick. Paid off his tractor and bought a used car. Govt took a pile before he even got the check. The IRS had an agent at the lottery office in Augusta (Ga) waiting on him to arrive. What would they do if you hit some major money? There should be some sort of grace period that one could use to set up something to keep they from taking such a large percentage. What would I do with a BIG pay off? Big chunk to the Multiple Sclerosis research group and I'd make a lot of deserving, hardworking people very happy. I pretty much have all I want/need except good health for MsC. Making the load easier for some not as fortunate might be a good thing to do

RE: Water pump continues to run on

Are you losing pressure back through the pump diaphragms? This would not move water so it would be quiet but the pump is trying to regain the pressure. There could be a piece of grit, trash or even a tiny hole causing it. there are rebuild kits on most makes

RE: Looking for App where I can select miles per day.

Rand McNally has a pretty good program called Trip Maker Deluxe. Not good for street number addresses, but fine for finding quickest, scenic, routes. You can set it up for the number of miles you want to travel and any stops you want to make. Has POIs etc. relatively cheap but sure helps in planning stages.

RE: Communications

We were on a volunteer list at a state park in SD and had a ton of offers around the state. Turned them down, specifying we wanted a particular park. Two weeks before the park opened for the season they had a volunteer cancel and then called and asked could we be there within two weeks. We were able to make it, but had to wrap up things at home rather quickly.

RE: Small economical DD as a towed

"Looking for a 5 passenger with storage in the truck for a bike and other stuff." Towed a 4wd 4 door Tracker for years. No room for a bike and not sure you will find a trunk (is that what you meant?) on any small car that will hold a bike

RE: Tow Bar Pins

I use two tractor pins with loop handles that you can get hands in to extract. They have holes for pins. For an added feature of safety I use a bungee cord stretched between the two handles in the very unlikely event a pin would slip out (bungee keeps the pins pulled to the center) Have used them for several years and several thousands of tow miles and no wear at all. Tractor dealerships usually have them.

RE: $$$$ in Nascar

I don't deal with NASCAR now. Several teams owned by one corporation? The owners decide who will be allowed to win is just a step away. I watched the old drivers in the old days in Atlanta at Lakewood when it was a racetrack and some days it would be too wet and the fans were invited to come out and help 'dry the track' for a few laps. The real racing was when you could go down to the local dealership with enough money and buy what you saw run on Sunday or Saturday night. Studebaker had a 'Golden Hawk' that was super fast. Oldsmobile, Pontiac, Ford, Dodge, Plymouth and Chevrolet were basically 'stock' cars with safety improvements. "Fireball" Roberts was the hottest (no pun intended) imported driver on that track back then. But there were other 'go fast' drivers also - Tim and Fonty Flock, Wendell Scott (certainly not the fastest but he managed to finish most of the time) and a lot of other boys from the Gainesville and Dawsonville area of N Georgia. Most of them hauled a little white liquor in their days. They ran the bigger tracks and the smaller tracks that were basically red clay and mud. But they filled the stands and out this came the 'professionals'. NASCAR maybe royalty today, but it's roots go back to moonshine, dirt roads, dark nights and nervy kids that thrived on the thrill of the chase. We don't want to change or rip NASCAR. But there is no need to disrespect 'stock cars' because they made the giant what it is today and there are thousands of us old guys that would like to see this type of racing come back.

RE: Big Daddy Don Garlits races again

Big Daddy is the heart of what drag racing was in the old days and should be today. Electric? Different? certainly! The goal was who can go the fastest the quickest and if is still the case, I will certainly be a fan if Big Daddy is out there turning and burning them

RE: Leaking inner dual tire, need help finding leak

If you think it IS from a valve leak, you might try an old farm boy trick we used to use years ago. Take the valve stem out, put a light coating of Vaseline on it and re-insert. Saved a lot of foul language after we discovered that you can over tighten if you keep twisting.

RE: USA Today Best State Park

Not for facilities, they are sorta lacking in some regards (although the 50 amp sites are nice :) ) I think Custer is the winner in scenery, atmosphere and ambiance.

RE: Florida Pruduce Stops

"We crossed from Ga to Fl on I 10 several times and never noticed one or stopped. We did stop at the one on SR 51 and the guy stared at us from his seat for a minute and waved us by." Interesting, since I-10 does not does not even go thru or into Georgia

RE: By pass Atlanta

I should be heading through about the same time as you. Look for a goofy looking guy in a BMW looing for a place to make the delivery to. (I will be taking a car to a customer Tuesday AM) The traffic in the northern suburbs is worse than downtown most anytime
