RE: Toy Hauler legend has passed

When I was in the industry I met Mark a couple of times. He had a lot of good ideas and he did make the toy hauler a reality. As already been said, him and his company got caught by the economic times, which was unfortunate. The FS2600 we had served us well. RIP Mark.

RE: On the road breakdown stories..

Years ago heading south pulling our toy hauler. We were about 40 min out when both the DW and I heard something- so I stopped. found the RT RE tire blown, no other damage. Switched the tire, continued on to the next big town, bought a replacement tire, headed out. About 3 hours later the people in a car passing us were gesturing and pointing- yep another tire. This time Left FT, installed spare, found a used tire from a literal side of the road tire shop- continued on. When we got to our destination, I found a tire store and replaced all 4. Since then, I replace trailer tires when they are 3 years old. Haven't had a series of tire failures like that since.

RE: Colors of trucks!

After having several white trucks (4), I grew tired of "that's original, went with the company truck color" comments. Since then they have been grey (2) black (3) Newest is green. I will admit that white is cooler in the summer, hides dirt and desert pin striping though.

RE: Your "favorite" BBQ Grill, suggestions

Weber Q, full size. works great. Good thing about Weber is parts are available (as if you will ever need them). Easy to bypass regulator to use with fiver LP.

RE: Purchasing used...how to know if it is stolen or not?

According to my wife a former banker, there may be a paper trail for non registered/non titled campers out there, depending on how it was bought. Cash deals- it's just personal property. If it was sold with a secured loan the camper would have a UCC lien that is then filed with the state (this is from a few years ago, when we lived in CA). Of course the lender just could have made it an unsecured personal loan, in which case its pretty much the same as cash.

RE: Can worn kingpins be refurbished?

Why not check local RV dealers for take-off's from customers who upgraded to air ride of premium pin boxes.

RE: Thought on suspension equalizers

Did the MoRide CRE3000, wet bolts & heavy shackles kit. Made a noticeable improvement in ride quality. Well worth the time and work, as things in cabinets seem less jostled & tossed about than before.

RE: The worst Post Office in the USA... your vote

If you consider that I regularly receive other's mail & I don't get mine, we have a carrier that randomly decides to not deliver for petty reasons then I guess they are doing a good job. All I can say is I am glad they don't have to do anything critical like deliver important documents..Oh, wait..yeah..But there's always Fed Ex, problem solved.

RE: Pet Peeves long road trip

This whole wont let you over and failure to merge is nothing new, back in the early 90's when we were racing (40'F/W, severely underpowered truck) I regularly had to feed guardrail to folks who refused to speed up, as it took forever for my combination to get back up to speed, I couldn't risk being rear ended by some idiot.

RE: People sure are getting petty with their park reviews

What I find most interesting is how one review complains how there were no level sites, but the other 25 make no mention of that, same thing with dust, low trees and other items. As previously mentioned, I think there is a segment of society who is miserable and they do their best to spread misery. Overall, I blame social media, as people have gotten used to saying anything with impunity.

RE: Thoughts on this Truck

Coming from the snowy salty North- Strike one Bouncing thru several auctions- Strike two Import from Canada, maybe no factory warranty-Ball one Due to differing title laws may be hidden salvage or buy back- Ball two First two owners were commercial (as said- possible rental)- Strike three. These new vehicles are far to expensive & difficult to repair to gamble on.

RE: Dr Doug cbd oil verus pain meds

Here in NV vets can't talk to pet owners about CBD, but vet techs can. Our vet's office has a specific tech who has been trained in CBD therapy and can make recommendations. As had been said, CBD is not a guaranteed cure all, but it does have its success stories. We haven't tried CBD, as Duramax seems to work OK for our arthritic dog.

RE: Ford's twin turbo 2.7 Eco-boost V6 (new and older versions)?

Wife drives a '15 Edge Sport, just hit 60K miles zero problem. Only replacements have been tires, the Hankooks wear rather quickly, but with the AWD they work very well in snow. One of the best cars we have owned.

RE: Fighting local zoning ordinances that hurt RV owners

I live in an HOA that allows RV's in the side yard, the development was designed for just that- all the houses have RV gates. I can somewhat understand the thinking behind restricting RV parking. Aside from blocking views on streets (that can make exiting driveways a real treat) lots of RV's sit 50 weeks a year, with torn covers and other garbage piled around. On the other hand, lots are used regularly, are well maintained and look fine. As previously mentioned, its difficult to split hairs when writing ordinances- so everything gets banned. End result, these ordinances aren't created in a vacuum, one must go to meetings and get active.

RE: heartworm meds in the mountain west

Even here is relatively dry, darn near mosquito free Nor NV our vet recommends heartworm preventative, especially if we are traveling.

RE: Las Vegas RV Parks

Another vote for Oasis. Groceries and other needs nearby, clean, well run, 24 hour security gate and all the other stuff JimK mentioned.

RE: Deer jumps between truck and trailer

Shows how poorly built rvs are. If that were the front of a pickup it would be toast. Dan Shows how well built deer are. A friend hit one with his dually. When he got out to look at the truck, the deer scared the he%% out of him as it climbed out from under his truck and ran off.

RE: Walkable TT roof

One of the reasons they started making non walk able roofs was to save weight, as people wanted "lightweight" TTs. If a coach didn't come with a ladder, it's a safe bet the roof isn't walk able, and adding a ladder never seems to work as there isn't any backing to attach one to. If you really feel the need to get up there- use the sheet of plywood method (as previously mentioned) to spread your weight.

RE: In bed diesel tanks

Pretty much what FJ12 said. Travel with no fuel worries, drop the fiver at the CG, go find a good deal on fuel. I went with the pump - nozzle route as I didn't want to risk any warranty issues with the truck by cutting any hoses. I went with the RDS 40 GA because of capacity. I didn't want 100 gallons or just 20. It also had to fit under my bed cover.

RE: Advice - tires again

Easy decision for me. Michelins. Every Chinese tire I have had has failed and left me alongside the road.
