RE: Coachmen Trailer rims warning

Just a heads up to those who own a Coachmen travel trailer or who may be purchasing one in the future. We have a 2016 321 Freedom Express Liberty with only a limited amount of trips. I take pride in keeping it very clean and immaculate however the finish on the aluminum rims are starting to deteriorate after only two years. It’s a disgrace that I had to take the Chinese bomb tires off after only a year but now these rims will need to be replaced as well. The manufacturer , Lionshead tire and wheel, were absolutely no help whatsoever and stated that I should not waxed them once the finish started to deteriorate. I’m just holding my breath wondering what’s gonna need replacing next.?? Take them off and polish and clearcoat them. A little elbow grease goes a long way.

RE: Looking for Honda EU2200 for my RV.

I bet Yamaha generator sales are getting a nice bump while Honda sorts this out. The two makes are so close in performance and price. Yamaha only offers a 2K unit with a 79 cc engine, the EU2200i has a 121 cc engine and is a far superior genset. This is a minor bump in the road, only affects units within a certain serial number range, and will be resolved by Honda. far superior in BBQ power I'd say. Get a Champion and pocket the difference. They don't leak fuel. I have a 4 year old one. Runs flawlessly.

RE: Hitch Extension AF 11XX

The farther it sticks out the back, the less tongue weight you can have. Put another way, the longer the lever the more mechanical advantage it has.

RE: firearm question

I always carry a handgun but abiding by the various state laws so sometimes it's not loaded but most times it is.

RE: Noisy Fireplace

I chuckle at that term 'Fireplace' ain't no fire in there, just a toaster and fan.

RE: 4 seatbelts NOT facing sideways

Buy what you want and install the seat belts yourself. You can buy belts and harnesses online.

RE: My SuperDuty 6.7 had a birthday

149K on the slush box is pushing it. I change my fluid and filter every 25K.

RE: What happens if a state park has snow?

Here in Michigan all state campgrounds are open all year unless posted on the state website.

RE: Would you get it fixed?

Just another reason (one of many) that I have no desire to own anything post Tier 4 in a diesel engine. None of my farm tractors nor my pickup truck are Tier 4 compliant. No matter what brand of truck or farm tractor, they all share the same componentry, produced by the same manufacturers and when they fail (if not in warranty) it's always extremely expensive to repair. I'll pass.

We camp at home in front of the woodstove with the dog.

RE: Can I tow with this?

You can tow anything with anything so long as you have the wallet to fill the tank.

RE: GM Certified Pre Owned 2016

Bought my last 2 like that. One GM (Suburban) and one Ford Focus RS hatchback. Both off lease, both still under factory warranty and both got the MFG extended warranties applied and in both cases, I quick check with GM and Ford yielded the original owners name and service records and I've had no issues with either. My take is, let a lessor take the depreciation. Got the Focus for half sticker and the Burb for about 60% sticker. I will only buy an off lease vehicle but it has to be below the standard factory warranty cut off mileage.

RE: online security

Why I never get any statement from anyone online, always a paper statement and I never do my banking electronically. Always at the branch. Conversely, I run Trend Micro on my computer, no crappy Norton or even crappier Avast.

RE: Why diesel trucks?

Gas trucks do not have more useable payload. The extra weight of a diesel engine is all on the front. The camper weight all goes on the rear. Not all but most.... My take on a diesel truck is, if you plan on keeping it for a long time (like you and I do), then a diesel is viable. If you trade out every few years, then a gasser is the way to go. Diesel is a long term investment.

RE: hot water

What I do with my Suburban HWH to get the deposits out is I stick my pressure washer nozzle in the abode rod port and blast them out. Works like a charm.

RE: Hwy 24 Ft Wayne to Peoria

Some 4 lane, some 2 lane but anything is better than the Chicago crazy traffic. We run 24 all the time. Not a hurry up road.

RE: To Rent or Sell

glad I,m in the 5% range, I have seven houses oldest tenant 23yrs youngest 13yrs I have very little problems, most fix little things them selves, and big things need a pro. My leasing company does not and neither do I allow any tenant to 'repair' anything. I want it done professionally not a shoemaker job and it's a write off anyway. Cost of doing business. No painting, no changing fixtures, no nails in the walls either. No pets and no smoking. Everyone signs a lease, has a credit check and pays a 2 month up front security deposit and I demand renters insurance as well. You hold your standards high you get quality people who can actually pay the rent on time. None of my houses are dumps, all are brick ranches on acerage with central air and attached garages. I even have a lawn service do the mowing and trimming and a contractor do snow removal. Took me a little while to get wise, but I am now and turning a profit.

RE: Forest River Problems

I'm sure it's only a minor bump in the road for Warren Buffet (he owns FR and others) as well as BNSF railroad and countless other business ventures. Wonder if the insurance on the building was covered by one of Buffet's insurnace companies? Could have very well been and knowing Warren, it was probably insured for more than the ACV. Kind of ironic that employees were 'laid off' that morning and the fire 'started' around noon. Sure seems fishy to me. Sounds like an unhappy employee that became an arsonist.
