RE: Covid 19 warning

Sorry, it was 36%. US Military Study Source Wrong. And it's third-hand. Here's the fallacy of it - back track to the source. Your quote is from: DISABLEDVETERANS.ORG and they quote from SCIENCEDIRECT.COM which purports to quote from a 2018 DOD study.

RE: Honda2000 in an Onan compartment

Page 7 in the manual If you run the generator in an area that is confined, or even partially enclosed area, the air you breathe could contain a dangerous amount of exhaust gas. Never run your generator inside a garage, house or near open windows or doors. "You can lead a horse to water. . ." I wonder who would buy a used camper with that type of set up. Good luck.

RE: Honda2000 in an Onan compartment

There's lots of good information about using the Honda in a compartment in the Owner's Manual. You might want to read it sometime: http://cdn.powerequipment.honda.com/pe/pdf/manuals/31Z07610.pdf

RE: Covid 19 warning

As posted on Reuters this morning - guess which is the US tour boat and which is the Canadian boat: https://s1.reutersmedia.net/resources/r/?m=02&d=20200725&t=2&i=1527061972&w=780&fh=&fw=&ll=&pl=&sq=&r=2020-07-25T003905Z_35827_MRPRC2VXH9IQYVF_RTRMADP_0_HEALTH-CORONAVIRUS-CANADA-USA

RE: New to Truck Camping

I assume that you're looking at the tag on the door frame? The door frame tag weight limit is based on the load capacity of the tires... When that might happen, I have never seen it. Please don't digress into "taxable" babble - it doesn't apply. Please spend some time at a truck dealership - you'll have to ditch the sales people first - and it will happen after your first three visits - and then look at the axles, the tires, the load ratings and see how they vary from truck-to-truck. (Yes, it takes some homework.) You, as will anyone, will begin to see how the GVWR and axle ratings are established by the truck manufacturer. The real axle load ratings are established by the axle manufacturer - not the Ford/Chevy/Ram manufacturers - and never listed on the door frame. You will see the same axles on different truck models - but the "axle rating" will vary - and it will always be dependent on the tire load rating. Usually a few hundred pounds under the tire load rating will be the trucks GVWR and axle rating.

RE: New to Truck Camping

.... our truck sticker says max weight for cargo and occupants is about 3100 pounds. I assume that you're looking at the tag on the door frame? The door frame tag weight limit is based on the load capacity of the tires. If you would look at the print on your tire wall for the tire's rated load capacity - you will see that it is only a few hundred pounds more than the door frame max weight. This fact is consistent throughout various truck models. (And you will read a lot of posts about GVWR and axle ratings etc, etc. but your crucial need is to understand where the weak link is in your truck's laod carry rating.)

RE: What will Canadians fo this fall/winter

What's going on in towns like Los Algodones? Or towns like Columbus NM where Mexican school children are educated in the US?

RE: Transferring Basecamp route to Garmin

Basecamp will do it - but never in an intuitive way. Create all your waypoints in BC - then select all the waypoints and right click them - then select "Create Route from selected waypoints". After the Route is created, you can Right Click on it - then select "Open" and you will see a screen that allows you to organize the route, including layovers, etc. I prefer to create a series of routes as opposed to one GIANT route - then download each route to the Garmin nuvi. This allows one to make changes during the trip without having to manipulate a big list of waypoints. (I'm talking a 3 month cross country style trip.) My trip planning process uses Google mymaps to start with to find waypoints. In Mymaps, I create a list and then export the list. Then with Basecamp I will import the google list of waypoints. The above is just a sketch - not a "how to" which is beyond the scope of this media.

RE: Camper jack torn off driving

Looks like a "break away jack" - probably an inadvertent design feature. The break away should have damaged the frame. It looks like you made a clean break of it.

RE: Snow Birds ??

Yes, we are definitely heading to Arizona. Our precautions work the same here as there - only there the odds of encountering the virus are a little higher. We have the N95 masks left over from my workshop days, carry and use hand sanitizers, wash hands frequently and avoid crowds.

RE: is weldwood contact adhesive strong enough?

Changes in formulation may have occurred over time. Former high VOC materials have been modified to water based products, which often are not as good. Materials used ten years ago may not be the same materials available to you now.

RE: Any thoughts on a repair?

Make sure that it is insured and park it near the fire line. Then run like hell. Sorry for your predicament.

RE: Primary care doctor? One in the north, one in the south?

I've been thinking about the topic and discussing it with my better half and it occured to me that my local primary care doc would be the one to ask first - if he works with a PCP doc in Arizona - I'm sure that I would not be his first patient to winter down south. Maybe someone else could ask their PC doc and see if it's been done before?

RE: A camper you may never see in your lifetime

The Tag axle for pickup trucks is currently being manufactured by: Pack Enterprises The developer/manufacturer was at the (last?) Natcoa Rally with a tag axle currently in production. Last I heard from him, he had recently obtain DOT approvals and was to begin commercial production. He is a member of the Lance Owners of America (LOA)Lance Owners of America forum under the handle PACK4TAG

RE: What do you keep in your camper.

The camper is a second home. Thusly, pretty much everything.

RE: Primary care doctor? One in the north, one in the south?

We went to a Doc-in-the-box who missed the diagnosis. A physical therapist at Mayo Clinic was a mistake. The soonest a primary care physican was available was six weeks out! DW flew home and saw her PCP who diagnoised a life threatening condition. And the diagnosis was made with a simple physical exam! A good PCP is essential in my experience which is why I ask.

Primary care doctor? One in the north, one in the south?

Does anyone have two primary care doctors? Or one primary care doc and a secondary southern GP doc? How does that work? How did you get the second doc?
