RE: When impatience hurts!

Dukes of Hazard IIRC. Yeah, I think everyone agrees the RV driver was 100 plus at fault. What I think some of us question is whether the truck driver did all that he could to avoid an accident. Maybe I'm just old school, but I believe we all have an obligation to do all we can to avoid an accident and probable loss of life. And while none of us can say for sure from just a short clip, it does not look to me like the truck driver made any attempt to slow down prior to being forced into the median. My guess is it would not have made much difference if he had tried, but trying would count for something.Honestly, I think if the truck had slowed down when seeing the RV coming up pretty quickly, the incident, definitely not an accident, could have been avoided. But I doubt that I would have done anything any different. Drivers who do things and expect other drivers to keep them from crashing just rub me the wrong way. And sometimes stupid hurts.

RE: Is replacing the furnace worth it?

AFAIK the new furnaces aren't any more efficient than the old ones. They've gone to 12V fridges, and tankless water heaters, and lousy steps, but have made no effort to provide a decent heating system.

RE: When impatience hurts!

Did you folks see the video of the woman doing a Rosco P Coltrain on a tow truck (That's what I call it when a "Dukes of Hazzard" Jump goes.... Bad) She had to be texting. Not sure who "Roscoe P. Coltrain" is. I presume he is the star of the TV show.

RE: When impatience hurts!

I finally got around to watching the clip. The first thing I thought was that the guy is driving that motorhome for the first time, and totally misjudged the length when he tried to move over. Sometimes stupid hurts.

RE: Remote measurement of fridge and freezer temperatures

How remote are talking about? Just with the doors closed in the trailer? Or if you gone from the trailer and want to check it? I want to read the fridge and freezer temperatures without opening the fridge and freezer doors.Gotcha, mine work great for that. And the batteries have been used off and on for about 3 years. I'm very happy with the battery life. I'll do some checking and see if I can find the name.

RE: Military Campgrounds

Actually I think MOH winners are admitted to any of the campgrounds.

RE: Remote measurement of fridge and freezer temperatures

FWIW the ones in my fridge and freezer have been in use several months easy and still going strong. But they are just to use while in the trailer, not with a phone or networked. I love 'em. No idea what brand, prolly just a cheap no-name from China.

RE: Military Campgrounds

I had heard the same thing late last year, but with no corroborating evidence, I decided it was just so much rumor passed off as truth. Nobody seems to do any fact checking any more.

RE: Military Campgrounds

This seems to be very common any more: misinformation passed along by people who supposedly know better. From what I've seen, many of the RV newsletters and online RV advice columns are written by anyone who contributes. I doubt if there is any vetting happening now. To paraphrase a president: "Doubt, and verify". :)

RE: '21 RAM Big Horn 3500 DRW CC/LB 4x4 with NEXEN Tire WOES!

"THANKS to all for your inputs, even those with the snide comments. I won't bother with another 'silly' post or 'complain' on the forum again." Ya gotta ignore certain members, who really try to post like members, "dicks" IOW.

RE: Thoughts on a plug-in hybrid conversion

JMO, but even at the present price of fuel, I can buy a lot of it for $7,000-$10,000. JMO of course.

RE: Fifth wheel Jerking with gas truck... not as noticeable

That's a new one on me. I don't have a clue, since it has happened with all the trucks.

RE: Should be simple WiFi question, but???

You should be able to select which frequency you want to use in the router settings. I know mine works that way, I can select either 2.4 or 5.

RE: Should be simple WiFi question, but???

My thought would be to check the router and see what channel the tablet is using, and adjust accordingly.

RE: One of the few Australian manufacrurers of 5vers

Don't mean to argue, too much, but white cars show dirt quickly, dark cars not so much. Surfaces are going to collect dirt, color doesn't make any difference, just in how much the dirt is noticed. JMO anyway. We'll just have to agree to disagree. :) I am going to have to agree to disagree with you also. My car and last three trucks were white and they could get VERY dirty before it was noticed. That is one of the reasons I pick white when getting a new vehicle. One of the worst vehicles I ever had for showing dirt was a black sports car. Had to wash it every day and follow that with a light polish. While I loved the car, it was a pain in keester to keep clean! BarneyWell, you guys are all in good company. Peggy also agrees that white is harder to keep clean than dark. I may have to wave the white flag and admit defeat. :)

RE: One of the few Australian manufacrurers of 5vers

While I do like the bright look of the white walls, how in the heck do you keep white walls from looking dingy in a very short time. We rarely, if ever, travel over gravel/dirt roads, and our interior still gets dusty and dirty. You'd constantly be wiping down those white walls and ceiling to keep them from looking dirty. Looks good, but seems to me to not be practical in a real world environment, especially if you do travel on dusty roads a lot. Which you do cite as being a frequent occurrence.
