RE: CNA National Extended Warranty

Always get a manuf. extended warranty. never get an aftermarket one.

RE: Why worry about Weight Distribution?

This is very much informative. while it is a drastic demonstration it still shows how improper loading can affect handling!

RE: Fishing bridge campground

I called and reserved a 45ft? Site. It may have been 40ft I'll have to double check. The long sites are limited. I reserved my site for July 2017 in May of 2016. I'm sure they are all spoken for!

RE: Anyone see anything wrong with this picture?

All these videos are biased for advertising hype. Just a touch more whip to the wheel puts a lot more whip to the trailer. If the car or crossover TV has one advantage, it's that the distance from rear wheel to hitch ball distance is much shorter. Just the same, here's a video pushing it to the limit with a GM SUV. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jz-rgndtVbw And a biased Airstream video going easy on the AS and pushing it beyond the limits of the stick and tin TT. I remember whipping our old utility trailer for fun when we were young. It doesn't take much. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7cMg42sW6NU These tests are all at maximum speed, that's the point of doing them. The trucks have to back off at slower speeds or they go unstable. That's important in evaluating relative stability, the trucks are worse measured against these setups. Of course an Airstream will look like it's not pushed as hard, Those quality torsion axies and better geometry do result in superior handling. What's wrong with marketing that given they sell those trailers at a premium price partly on that superior handling? It's unfortunite many videos seem to be missing now, the most useful ones are the a to b comparisons with multiple vehicles towing identical trailers. Most of what they try to sell are matched pairs, so I can understand them marketing that but I consider it most unfair fpr you to characterize a valid engineering test as "advertising hype" simply based on not understanding what the tests are testing. These are also controlled sway events. And setup optimally! Now throw in improperly setup, passed by a semi with a newbie behind the wheel!

RE: Craig's List Scam Buyer beware!

I was looking for an older F150 pick up. Came across a really clean 03 with 50k miles for $1500. I knew right away it was a scam. The first indication is the gmail account to email too. Not to mention that particular model of F150 goes for about $4-5k. Then I got the reply, my husband passed away and I have to sell it. So then I ask to come see it and that is when the reply's stopped! If you have time to play go ahead. Otherwise move on.

RE: Anyone see anything wrong with this picture?

Looks setup better than some of the weekend setups ive seen pull into the campgrounds.

RE: 2017 F450 shooting flames :0

If anyone is referring to me as a Ram Fanboy, you'd be wrong. I'm shopping for a new Toyota (or maybe a GM Canyon/Colorado), not a RAM. I might shop for a Ford too if they bring back the Ranger like the rumors say. I just thought it was an interesting tow vehicle story. But, you're welcome to whatever opinion of me you want to have. :) If they are talking about me, I have no more Mopars in my garage or driveway! They are all Fords! That's not to say I won't own another one. Just the way it worked out. If when the time comes I want to replace the X it will be a MegaCab!

RE: Anyone see anything wrong with this picture?

wonder how big a anchor he has to stop that rig at 60 mph. Unless the trailer has no brakes at all, it will stop just as good as everyone else's on the road! As far as towing goes. Not sure but it doesn't look like anything is setup improperly.

RE: Old Faithful?

I made reservations at Fishing Bridge back in may for July 2017. I got a 45ft spot. it may too late now for July next year at FB. maybe the others will have available spots. Good luck!

Pre-regen trucks look more appealing all the time!

RE: Own a Jeep? Over 250K recalled for airbags/fire hazard

It seems some forum members like to sweep the internet for issues other manuf. are having so they can make a post for trolling purposes. I seriously doubt they did that out of the goodness of their hearts especially when you get the smart... remark at the end of the post. And BTW, no wherein the article does it state a fire hazard! unless you want to post the link to the other article for a possible bad alternator. and that one is being taken care of also!

RE: Own a Jeep? Over 250K recalled for airbags/fire hazard

OK. here is the entire article. "Fiat Chrysler is recalling more than 224,000 Jeep Wrangler SUVs worldwide because the air bags may not inflate in a crash. The recall covers certain 2016 and 2017 Wranglers. The company says in government documents that wiring to a sensor can come loose, cutting off signals to an air bag computer. If that happens, the seat belt pretensioners won't work and the air bags won't deploy. The company says no one has been hurt because the air bags didn't inflate and no customers have complained. The problem was discovered during company crash tests. Fiat Chrysler found that during a crash, the left headlight would rotate, pulling the wiring loose. Repairs to fix the problem aren't ready yet, but Fiat Chrysler says it's imminent and owners will be notified when to set up a service appointment. Dealers will reroute the wiring at no cost to owners. Fiat Chrysler says none of the 2017 models have been sold yet." They found an issue before it ever became a problem. they are working on fixing it. how is that a problem for FCA? at least they aren't sweeping it under the rug like some other manuf. does!

As far as I know a lot of manuf are affected by airbag recalls.

RE: weight distribution hitch opinion

Still not bad for a very good quality proper rated hitch!

RE: F-150 plant closing for one week?

Get the MSRP back down to what I paid for my 2004 F150 and I would be interested in a new truck, $350 a month is affordable , $600 a month is not Are you getting the same salary that you had in 2004? Well it certainly didn't increase by 50-60%!

RE: Blowing Lines

I think the "blow it out only camp" has never lived in a -20deg. area! Well then you would be wrong. Northern Alberta -40 not uncommon. Been blowing out for 15 years without issue. What dii does it make if its -10, 20, or 40? Frozen water is still froze!! x2 for Northern Alberta Adding the pink stuff is good marketing and just makes you feel better. Nope! Adding the pink stuff is doing the job right. And it makes me feel good the job is done correctly!

RE: KOA's in General

I like KOAs because you pretty much know what you are getting. Yes, some are rather pricey and then some are very reasonably priced. The KOA rewards program is worth the $30. I basically save over $30 after two trips. Then every once in awhile I get basically a free night from the points. I am basically a weekend warrior so our stays are usually short to check out a new area when I'm not staying at the park for long periods of time. That's called a pyramid scheme! :B

RE: How do you define too expensive?

It's more of a statement of not worth it for what is offered! I have found that the Jellystone franchise has a lot more to offer for the same price, sometimes cheaper. And there are plenty of campgrounds that are $20 a night cheaper than a KOA usually within a few miles. And around me gas stations can and do (today actually) vary by 25 cents a gallon! 40 gallons in my Excursion is a big savings. That's $4 add that up over a year, $200 a year is huge! So saving $20 a night at a better campground is smart!
