RE: A three cylinder Bronco.....a THREE cylinder Bronco???

Remember, this is the same company that has redesigned the Mustang to be electric and look like a Crossover. Mike:? :? :? I’m sure this contributes to the discussion, just not sure how. Dave 3 cyl Bronco, Electric Mustang... Whats next? I agree with OP, 3 Cyl Bronco? Why?? Mike

RE: Etiquette and Courtesy for Tourists & Visitors

Theres a lot of things you can ask locals about to learn more about the culture. I just never thought asking about what they wear was one of them. Sometimes it comes out in conversation, sure, but there's a lot more interesting things about the local culture than clothing. Mike

RE: Etiquette and Courtesy for Tourists & Visitors

It never dawned on me to ever ask someone about the clothes you wear. I can't even imagine a conversation where that would come up, or why I would even care. "Hey man.. why do y'all wear those overalls? Is it to keep the spaghetti sauce from staining your new t-shirts?" (kidding of course). That's just weird... Mike Monks in Thailand wearing orange robes. Germans at Oktoberfest wearing Lederhosen. Been there, seen that, and still didn't ask. Mike

RE: Buying from a private party

Sorry for your loss. Likely owner figures with the hot market, he can ask a premium and someone will pay it. That may be true, hard to tell. I would go look at it just for the experience. Do some negotiation discussion to see how much flexibility there is and start to get comfortable with dealing in that environment (unless you already are). I used to go to new car dealerships and see what kind of deals I could get, sharpen my negotiation skills, see what the latest strategies are etc.. I know this is private party, but some of the skills still apply. Mike

RE: Accident with tow vehicle right before big camping trip?

Just because the ins co gives you the $$$ to rent a tow vehicle doesn't mean the rental company has to allow you to tow with it. True statement. Mike

RE: RV dump station Fee - pay if only getting fresh water ?

I see an OP "asking" if the "dump fee" applies for JUST getting water; legitimate question, IMO. Next step "The guys on RV.net said I didn't have to pay if I was just getting water". :B Mike

RE: Accident with tow vehicle right before big camping trip?

If you're obsessed with the possibility, just don't drive the tow vehicle for a week or two prior to the trip. You can't control what you can't control. Mike

RE: RV dump station Fee - pay if only getting fresh water ?

I imagine it depends on the particular policy at said dump station. Not sure I'd want to get fresh water at a dump station, even if it is marked as potable. Do you trust whoever is running the dump station? Mike

RE: Are other drivers killing your RV experience?

I think there are less considerate drivers these days. But killing your RV experience? Really? I guess if I got in a wreck, then yes. But like the guy who had his rig totaled, it would only kill it long enough to buy a new one. I drive at the pace I feel comfortable with, and generally in the first lane. Usually not a huge deal that would ruin my experience. Mike

RE: X-chocks and 6 point levelers

I'm a bit of a neophyte at this. Our previous trailer had the usual landing gear and stabilizers so we always used chocks between the tires. Our "new to us" trailer has the 4 point Bigfoot system and is quite stabil without the chocks. I still carry the chocks but don't plan on using them unless we're unhooking on uneven ground. Hope this helps. X chocks don't take the place of regular wheel chocks. You still need to chock your wheels. I always chock my wheels, AND use my x chocks, even on level ground. Mike

RE: X-chocks and 6 point levelers

I use them. Maybe habit, maybe not. But I have used them since day one with my 5er with 6pt leveler. Mike

RE: Near tragic event!!

For those of you who think a TPMS will tell you if a wheel comes of, I think you are mistaken. I am not positive but I don't think they will alarm if this happens. Mine will tell me when a sensor has lost signal. Im pretty sure if a tire went flying it would be out of range and lose the signal. Mike

RE: How much do you really need?

I think using the GVWR is still the best number to use, especially when you consider the like 60 per cent are overloaded. I went by GVWR, when I purchased all three of my trailers. If I can tow up to GVWR with my tow vehicle and stay within all parameters, then I know Im good. Where did you come up with 60% are overloaded? Or is that a guess? Mike

RE: Weighing at Cat Scales

Download the app and you don't even have to go inside. App will properly charge the reduced cost for the re-weigh. Mike

RE: 75 Speed Limit - How Fast

Yeah.. I've thought of that. Had one for my Challenger, so familiar how they work. Mike
