RE: Not enough room

We here in the shadows of megatropolis, outside the Sanctuary city of Philadelphia do not have a lot of choices for those items…. Now Opioids, crack cocaine, fentanyl, we got that and then some ! Thats Funny! I assume you meant choices for good gas. While I hate to hear that your city is a dump, know that ours is too, so I get it. But at least I can buy like 7 or 8 different flavors of hot rod gasoline within about a 20 minute drive! Don Smalls even has 2 flavors of unleaded race gas at the credit card pumps next to the premium non ethanol. Leaded comes in 2 flavors out of bulk tanks at a couple different locations. Cenex has 3 flavors of non ethanol. Reg mid grade and premium. Can fill up cans while filling the slip tank (wink wink) with farm fuel with a credit card. And most any local airstrip, pull in and get however much Av gas you want! I am about 40 minutes from down Philadelphia,PA.. we have the usual 3 and a diesel… never looked for AV fuel, never thought I needed to … as far as a city dump, actually I am far enough away in the burbs to not know it’s there.. the news is 10 minutes on city shootings, 10 minutes on the ex Prez, 5 minutes on sports and 5 on weather…. I like it here, but the bad stuff is moving closer each year…

RE: Not enough room

Like many already stated, when I am traveling into area's I am not familiar with I use Google Maps ahead of time to check things out... I usually have an idea of how far I will go and how far I can go before needing to fuel Looks like you have a diesel tow vvehicle. Finding places to fit is much less of an issue because you can use truck stops a diesel islands at convenience stores. Finding places to refill with gasoline is a much bigger issue vs. diesel You can't use the diesel pumps unless you have an auxilary tank. The high speed nozzles are bigger than the filler on your truck. I have a 40 gallon aux tank in the bed so I can use them. I’ve had diesel tow vehicles since 2004, and I have not yet met a fuel nozzle that did not fit into my tank

Finding places to fit is much less of an issue because you can use truck stops a diesel islands at convenience stores. Finding places to refill with gasoline is a much bigger issue vs. diesel Actually it can be a draw either way. I have noticed there are far fewer fuel stations that have gas AND Diesel and the ones that do have both typically have far fewer pumps for Diesel. I know myself with having a Diesel tractor how painful it can be getting Diesel at times.. I am sort of lucky to have a small Mom and Pop gas station 2 miles away that serves up Diesel on two of their 6 pumps and "off road" Diesel (no road taxes) on one pump. But in my nearest city, most stations have zero Diesel pumps and the couple stations that do have it, have one pump in a small crammed tight spot which would be not easy to fit a RV into. Basically if you have a Diesel rig, you typically have fewer choices on where to fill up. Big truckstop places like FlyingJs are not everywhere. You apparently have it bad there in PA. Hard to find LP and diesel? How hard is it to get non ethanol, av gas and race gas? LP is easily found, but most of those are in Industrial Parks and have commercial hours like 8-3… Or the localm U-haul and their yahoo’s Race gas ??? Not to be found that I have seen except closer to the Allentown area where Nazareth Raceway used to be, or further west in PA closer to the drag strips and dirt tracks… We here in the shadows of megatropolis, outside the Sanctuary city of Philadelphia do not have a lot of choices for those items…. Now Opioids, crack cocaine, fentanyl, we got that and then some !

RE: Ordering a ‘23 Powerstroke

My only question is why order a new truck (and wait several months to get it) if you only plan to keep it for a year? Good Point Becasue he is 4x4ord, and he can ! ! I can't wait to hear his detailed report.. in a year or so !

RE: Ian destruction

heard from from kids in Tampa this morning. Their electric came on last evening but no cell service till this morning. Good thing was no damage other than trees. So I guess some parts of Tampa were worse than others. Glad they are ok.... Nothing from the ones in Orlando yet?

RE: Ian destruction

I have not heard from my grand children yet. 2 in Tampa and 2 in Orlando. Hope its lack of electric. Well, I am almost 100% sure that's what it is..... the destruction is well SOUTH of there.. Yes, there was state wide flooding from heavy rain, but the damage from Ian is south..( with the exception of a Tornado) A good friend of mine lives in Tampa and he did not even lose power, another in Clearwater lost power for a few hours. We have friends in Sarasota/Bradenton and just lots of rain, and friends 10 miles from landfall who lost everything.. it will be weeks before some get power..

RE: We got a new RV

We got a new RV. A 2023 Wolf Pup Cherokee 22RR. We will be using it next weekend. One question - I was told ours has the connection for winterizing with plumbing antifreeze. Where would it be? I live where -40 is common so blowing it out is not recommended, unless you want to replace your water lines each season. Its a 2023 ? purchased from a dealer ? did they do a PDI ? So they told you it had one, but you didn't ask where ? These dealers are getting real shotty with their time after the sale.

RE: Cover for camper while in storage? Yes/no?

I know 3 people that USED TO cover their RV for the winter.... Now they just put a coat of wax to protect it.. All 3 had damage to the RV paint/gelcoat from the cover on the corners.. IF you cover, make sure it is secure and has NO flap, NO chance of rubbing corners

RE: Ford 150 Lightning owner review

I love reading the comments when someone says something negative about EV's.. weather it be true, or not they get all rattled and ask to stop posting... it truly is hysterical ! ! Now, there can be endless EV threads from the fan boys and girls with no issue.. just as long as the OP does not take aim at Tesla, or any EV. I am NOT an EV lover, BUT Like others I see their place in this country and hope they continue to evolve..

RE: Grey Tank Filling

Thank you for the reply. I figured as much when we returned. As for the gauge, we went off the LED light tank gauge inside and when dumped, did not quite look as though it was 2/3 full. Our water heater is electric at this time and we have not used the gas heater yet. In your eyes do you believe that the 42psi is too much for this model? Nothing wrong with 42 psi... my Watts gauge is set to 60 psi for inbound water....

RE: Grey Tank Filling

OK, couple of things here -- 1st - NEVER leave your RV for a few days with water hoked to it.... If you had a leak it could have been catastrophic.. When I leave my RV un attended for a period of time I do the following: unhook the water line and shut off the water.. shut off the water heater... CLOSE all tanks.. put slides in ( optional in my eyes ) 2nd - was/is there actually 2/3 of water in the tank? Or are you going off the gauge.. If your going off the gauge, they are wrong99% of the time IF you are telling us that you have no standing water, no dripping water, I would assume that the gauges are just covered with slime

RE: Two blow outs in one day

I also had a 2 blow out day while towing, not fun at all. Second one was 9pm, 95 south doing 65, tossed the tread tire held pressure! Pulled into a Cracker Barrel and changed to spare I purchased after the 1st blow out that morning.. Asked the good folks there if they knew any good tire shops, there was 1 about a mile away, was at their door when they opened.. Replaced ALL 4….

RE: Jayco Dealer Recommendation

Keystone Mega RV in Greencastle, exit 1 off 81. I bought from them in 2015, had some warranty issues. They were FANTASTIC to work with. I made an appointment and dropped off the camper, they photographed and documented everything that day. When parts were in, I dropped it off again and they fixed everything on my list, and they found a few little things that weren't right and fixed them too. In fact, when I bought my camper I had priced it out on RVone.com and got a great deal. Called Keystone, they were within $400 and saved me a drive to Albany, NY to pick it up. We drove up, filled out the paperwork, signed for the price that we agreed upon and gave them a deposit. AFTER all that was done, my wife casually mentioned to our salesman that we were happy with the price, they were very close to the wholesale price we recieved. He asked what price we had been quoted by RVone. Mind you... we had already agreed to a price, signed a contract and given a deposit. He went back to his manager, came back and said he would take an additional $200 off the price. We weren't trying to negotiate further, we were pleased at $400 more. I was blown away with them. Very straight forward and honest sales team! That there is a company looking for return customers... None of that 1 and done mentality ! Awesome to hear

RE: PA Turnpike-worse in US?

I hate it as well, but its MUCH better than I80.... mainly due to the fact that the tolls are expensive so MOST truckers avoid it.. I have taken I80 many times from Eastern PA to Erie and the road divots from the heavy truck traffic, the trucks traffic, and the Deer at night make it a worse option in my book.... Not to mention, I am in SE Bucks, so I would have to travel 2 hrs North to catch 80 According to Google.... If you took the turnpike to Harrisburg an then headed west on US 322 to I-80, it would only add 18 minutes and save a whole lot on tolls. That still doesn't change the condition of I-80 though. That 18 minutes could/would turn into a whole lot more if in the 322 area of Harrisburg at the wrong time ! That is a mess between 283/83/322/81.. we take that way to go to Moscow camping when going to Port Royal Dirt speedway.
