RE: Pennsylvania Turnpike

I live in PA and avoid the Turnpike as much as possible. I80 & I68/70 have no tolls. X2.Sometimes the pike is the most practical way to get somewhere. But, I try to avoid it as much as possible. The Turnpike commission is required to pay the Pennsylvania Dept. of Transportation 450 million every year to help fund road projects not related to the Turnpike. That's almost half a billion dollars in tolls not being used for Turnpike maintenance. And, whenever traveling in Pennsylvania, assume you will encounter road repair/maintenance and be prepared to sit in traffic. You are usually not disappointed. It's the nature of the beast.

Check YouTube for videos on identifying flood vehicles.

RE: Looking for dog breed the travels well while Rving

When you mention Chihuahua, most people think of a yipping, yapping annoying little dog. We inherited one, it's very quiet and likes everyone. She travels well and is no problem. It's the temperament of the dog. Not just the breed. One thing to consider is the size of the animal you are considering. Some CG's have weight limits along with breed limits. Don't buy a dog from a breeder. Go to a couple animal shelters and see what is available. There are a lot of really good dogs of all breeds that need a home.

RE: what defines a 3/4 ton?

But I remember when somebody mentioned "Super Duty" you knew they where talking about a gas powered class 8 Ford... And if you look back to the early 60's, they were talking about a Pontiac.

RE: Camping World Terrible Customer Service

I wish that we would have taken the advice of the people that have posted complaints. You knew about the Customer Service and still made a purchase?

RE: A new forum PLEASE

We could also ask for a forum on Wine. But it would probably be mistakenly used by Whiners :B

RE: Ford 460 motorhome running hot

You replaced the cat converter. Is it the correct size? How is the muffler? It could be a possible (clogged) exhaust problem.

RE: Restrictions on older RVs.

If you want to restore the shine to your rig, try the Red Max Pro/Zep Process. If you don't want to use floor wax, use the car wax of your choice. Preparation is the key to getting the shine restored. It did a very nice job on our 96 Southwind.

RE: Plate fees are going up in illinois

It shouldn't be too much of a surprise, you knew the Plate Fees were not going down. :(

RE: Hershey Pa rv show

Is the Hershey show outside any city limits, for tax reasons? No. The RV Show is held at the Giant Center near Hershey Park. Easy access, there is a lot of space for the show, inside and outside. Plus, there is plenty of parking available. It has nothing to do with avoiding taxes. I have not been to the show for a couple years. The last time I attended I did notice a lot of high pressure sales tactics. Other than that it is a nice show with plenty to see.

RE: Busy few weeks coming.....

So, what will you do in your spare time :@
gbopp 08/18/19 07:50am RV Pet Stop

You can cut them off square and buy a couple of shark bite type slip on valves at Lowes or Home Depot. This is quick and easy. x2. PEX is a great product and easy to use.

RE: Is tongue weight calculated in CGVWR?

Just this morning I had the idea that if I strapped the wife to the rear bumper of the trailer for the longer trips I would lessen the tongue weight a bit. Good plan. Another option would be to leave the wife at home. Then you could replace her weight with beer and, sell the empty cans to a recycler to help offset your expenses. Sometimes RVers need to be innovative. :C

RE: GAF Roof Coating at Lowes any good??

Another vote for Heng's Rubber Roof Coating. It goes on easily and does not need a primer. I used 2 1/2 gallons to coat 30' of roof with two light coats. I also know nothing about GAF.

RE: Determining a dogs age

Several years ago we rescued a mixed poodle that was living on the street. I guessed he was about two years old. Eight years later we moved and I told his new vet he was a rescue and I didn't know his age. The vet, 30+ years experience, checked the dog and looked at his teeth. He told me the dog was no more than four years old. I told him we had him eight years. The vet shook his head and said, 'it was just a guess.' Dr. Doug was correct.

RE: Jay Leno predicts demise of vehicles running on gas.

It doesn't matter. The world is going to end in 12 years. :)

RE: Downloading at Campground

I don't have a TC so I can't download the camper. When I get set up at a CG, I upload my beer.

RE: Towing speed

Drive as fast as you possibly can, so we can see your crazy crash video on here! We have not heard, yet, from the High Strung Type A people who brag about towing at 85+ with their family in the truck, and simultaneously talking on the phone, playing a video game and watching a movie. :)
