RE: Ram outsells Chevrolet.

Not once in my life time have sales figures factored in when I purchased a new truck. I picked the vehicle which best suited my needs, not by who sold the most.

RE: Anyone use insect (tick) yard spray before they set up camp?

I have been using some all natural yard spray up north, can't remember the name. It smells like lemon. Have used Raid Yard Guard in the past. There is supposed to be some type of garlic yard spray that will keep mosquitoes away for a month.

RE: Gas prices.

Gasoline is a commodity that is traded on the market, the price is not determined by the refiners. Same with natural gas it's traded on the market as well. Refiners are on a maintenance schedule for major turnarounds that our required approximately every 5 years. This is a major undertaking requiring contractors to be scheduled well in advance. Lot of ignorance in the above comments. I guess when people don't know they make something up.

RE: Removal of 10 year old trailer ugly decal pictures

After trying several methods a heat gun from Harbor Freight and some plastic razor blades worked best for me. A hair dryer did not get hot enough. I have a can of decal remover and a 3M eraser wheel in the garage, neither work well on aluminum siding.

RE: What's the one thing that you have but hardly EVER use?

The Awning, just don't seem to ever use it. Away from the camper of a day and don't need it at night.

RE: Guilty pleasures

My guilty pleasure while camping is quality bedding. Comfortable mattress and pillows. Having my own brand of coffee in the morning is another.

RE: What's your stick(est) wicket?

Off the narrow road you had to back between a large boulder and a tree. What's up with campsite landscapers putting a big boulder on the other side of a huge tree in the entrance of a camping slot? Sadist sob's, lol!Mother nature was the landscaper, would have took a VERY large piece of equipment to move, they built the road around it.

RE: What's your stick(est) wicket?

The narrowest spot assigned to me was at a KOA outside Salida CO. The site would of worked for a pop-up but not a 26 TT. Off the narrow road you had to back between a large boulder and a tree. Went to the office and they put me in a larger site. Very senic place by the Headwaters of the Arkansas River.

RE: Hitch jack fully extended: Should I be nervous?

I would put a jack stand under each side of the trailer frame where it meets the coach itself.That would also keep the trailer more stable when inside.

RE: Would gas engine opinions change if.....

Frankly, I wouldn't want to drive a rig that I couldn't monitor what the engine was doing. You're suggesting that what we don't know won't hurt us or that can just be ignored. No thanks. That's like a car with only an idiot light to tell you after the oil pump quit working. I had a 1970 Impala equipped with a speedometer, fuel gauge and about 4 idiot lights. I drove it 22 years and while I would have liked the gauges it really was never a problem. The idiot light would probably tell you as quickly that oil pressure is down and be better at getting you attention. I have long felt like there should be one idiot light labeled "LOOK AT YOUR GAUGES!" In my Ford truck it has a check gauge message that appears along with a chime noise. Had a wire pinched that would Peg the temperature gauge in certain situations. Fixing required pulling the intake manifold for access.

RE: Is this legal???

Since you paid (not just a reservation) I would think you would have a contract. If they did not honor that contract I would ask for a refund. The seasonal campground I stay at had their property tax double in one year. They had to raise rates the following year. They did not raise rates mid year after everyone had already paid.

RE: $650 for an obituary

GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR! On top of the outrageous cost they botched the obit badly. Poor grammar, incorrect facts and just poorly written. Incredible. They can print corrections on the facts but that's about it. They also use some sort of service that sends the obits to some online distribution system so now it's out there all over the place. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!That's the way it is now on printing. Example - The Wichita Eagle has been around 145 years. Readership has declined two thirds. In a town of 390,591 (2017 numbers) they only have 39,000 daily and 58,000 Sunday hard copy subscribers. Still have lots of on line readers. The paper got rid of it's old presses and 181,000 Sq ft bld. The information is transmitted digitally ever evening to the KC Star paper where it is printed with new digital presses and the papers are sent by truck back to Wichita. Our local paper (McPherson Sentinel) is printed the same way. I would be willing to bet most small towns are done that way. It's simply a mater of economics and the struggle to survive. Most of the Revenue from advertising goes to digital media that has the most viewer's. The same can be said for television loss of revenue to digital media. Television uses lots of infomercials to make up for lost revenue. The money has made multi billionaires out of Digital media such as Farcebook Papers have been notorious for not getting the facts straight even before the decline. I haven't subscribed to a Newspaper in decade's.

RE: Help with finding any material related to my 5th wheel

Rv's usually don't come with owners manual. They usually contain a packet of information from the various manufacturer's of components used in the RV.

RE: Dexcool vs. Universal coolant

I had a old Blazer that I did mix the two. The coolant turned brown in the system. Seem to cool just fine and did not have any issues that I'm aware of after several years. I will never mix the two again. Just don't care for brown (color of mud) coolant.

Rv pro Super Flex rubber roof system

Anyone have rv pro Super Flex rubber roof on their RV? Supposed to be tougher then regular rubber roofs with a texture finish that's not supposed to chalk. I have to replace the roof on my project trailer and thinking of going with the Superflex.

RE: 1st quarter pickup sales

My first new truck was a 84 Dodge D-150. I drove it for 10 years and 200k miles. I sold the truck to a friend that drove it another ten years, he did put a transmission in it. The friend sold it to the son of a lab tech at work who had it for several years. Then it was sold to a young man 2 blocks away who is still driving it with the original motor. You can say what you want about old Dodges not holding up but mine sure did.

RE: Sedans, hatchbacks and wagons.

Wife and I are 77 now. We have a '10 Impala which is a good car for its size. It gets 28-32 mpg depending on long trips or our daily rural driving. Just the last couple of years we both agree its getting harder and harder to get out of. We've always had a sedan of various brands but our plans are for a mid size SUV. One of the grand daughters with a hubby and 3 boys has a newer Ford Explorer which we find is has ideal entry and exit for the wife and I. Were pickup truck people and have been since the late '50s having owned 14 mostly 3/4 and one ton trucks over those years. We finally started using tube steps on the last two trucks. Life is good.Kind of funny I just put tube steps on my oldest Ford today.
