RE: Tv external wiring

IMO you're better off without one. The two TTs we've had had them, and they were a headache. As suggested, and drill a hole and run your own RG6.

RE: Warning! Caution! Warning!

The most dangerous feature of thousands of things we buy is the packaging. You can seriously cut yourself either on the packaging itself or the knives it takes to open them. No warnings there!

RE: Warning! Caution! Warning!

But many instructions have additional warnings on nearly every page.

Warning! Caution! Warning!

I'm fed up with wading through never ending safety instructions that are themselves dangerous because they can prevent us from focusing while reading instructions on things like chain saws. And I'm really fed up with dire warnings on things I'd never suspect could injure or kill me, like the $5 aluminum clam shell hamburger press that cautioned: Don't operate this equipment around children! Got that, Mom? Better you send little Sally out to play in traffic while you mash that burger. Or the auto focus camera that came with a folded paper of instructions that began with SIX folds explaining how it could be the end of life as I had heretofore known it if I did this or that. A camera? So have you come across any annoying examples of overdone warnings?

RE: TT or Fifth Wheel-opinions wanted

While I wouldn't want to get into the pickup capacity argument, I would tell you that a 30' TT with a good WD system properly installed will tow very nicely with a 250. A fiver would, too, if suited for your truck. The fives are usually taller, if that matters to you. They also often cost more, again, if that's a factor you'd consider. New or used is up to you and your tolerance for buying someone elses castoff. Myself, I'd be more upset paying new rig price and getting a pot load of problems than if I'd purchased used, where you are more likely to expect it to not be perfect. But if you've looked at a hundred and still aren't even sure which type you prefer, you may not be all that interested in making a purchase.

$20 Solar Battery Maintainer

I had one of these el cheapo gadgets laying around. So when we left a car in the garage for a few months while away, I plugged it into the cigar lighter and set the panel near a window. That lighter is alive all the time. On returning the battery was so drained the keyless entry wouldn't respond. The car has sat for longer periods with no charger and not had a problem, both with this battery and the older one it replaced. Could the charger have been draining the battery when the garage was dark? Should the clips for the battery terminals have been used? Or should I just throw that thing away?

RE: Spell check

My advice would be to be old guy. That way you probably went to schools that taught us the difference between advice and advise, to and too and two, and lose and loose, not to mention there and their and they're. Not a big deal I suppose.

RE: dealing with an insurance claim

As mentioned, if subrogation is available to you, that might be your best course. If not, and you have to leave the country, a lawyer is probably your Plan B. That could lead to filing suit against the park, which should wake up their insurer. Good luck.

RE: ventless or vented washer dryer combo?

If BB TX is right it looks like ventless may = more $ and more stuff to fail.

RE: Tires

Passenger tires don't belong on light trucks, pulling or not, IMHO. But many use them anyway.

RE: Your Fuel/Oil comments - please post here

Yup, gas prices jumped a dime or more in no time as oil rose a bit, but now oil down 9% today. I'm sure gas will drop tonight. HA! Diesel stable at 2.49 and up.

RE: Your Fuel/Oil comments - please post here

The morning news had Shell exec promising increasing prices by year's end, $5 by the end of the decade. Diesel around $2.50 in the East Valley with one Shell?? station holding out for 2.799.

RE: Your Fuel/Oil comments - please post here

Diesel in the Phoenix East Valley is in the 2.40s, gas 1.70s. While filling DW's ride yesterday at Costco, it struck me that gas is relatively cheaper today at 1.75 than that quarter a gallon stuff I paid as a teenager. Of course, that was real gasoline, not full of farm welfare sugar! :S

Check your state to see if it has an RV Lemon Law. Ohio is the first one that popped up on the search engine.

RE: Huge discrepancies

ENOUGH! Do I have to send this thread to my aerospace engineer son-in-law for interpretation? :S :B

RE: Huge discrepancies

I don't necessarily agree with that sentiment often noted on this forum. "get the bigger truck in case you upgrade trailers" Wouldn't that be the same as recommending purchasing a million dollar home because someday you might win the lottery. Uhh, no.

RE: Huge discrepancies

Why even buy a 3/4 or 1 ton when you can get a 2015 F150 with it's huge 3300 lb payload cap? Why indeed, especially if it's equipped with a pimped up V6.

RE: Huge discrepancies

While this has been, emphasis on "has", has been an interesting thread, I'd offer this input. When looking to the truck's manufacturer for accurate and truthful numbers, they are not above marketing a light truck for its ability to pull the Space Shuttle. :S Back to you techies.

Clearly, the OP is a trouble maker. I call for their ban! :B
