RE: Another "Yuk" thread, or OMG, or what are they thinking?

She might be the type who kisses her dog on the lips right after he drinks from the toilet. Or just cleaned his parts with his tongue.

RE: Where do you find water

We don't strictly boondock. We mix it up. We may go a week boondocking then hit an RV park or St park where we can dump, refill and top off the batteries. If we are between boondocking spots we fill the fresh water when we dump using the potable water.

RE: 2020 GM/Chevy gas 6.6L max towing test

I think I'm going to take the 6.4 badge off my Ram so I don't look like a fool while towing with it. Thanks for the heads up.

RE: Modern Food?

Also, I'm a pretty good cook, so why would I go out to eat to get something like roast beef? I can make a good roast beef at home pretty easily. When I go out to eat, I want to eat something I either can't make at home, or would be a big pain to make at home (like good BBQ). I've found that we can't eat out for a good quality meal for less than $50 including drinks anymore. Often it's closer to $75. So many people still expect a good meal for $10/plate or less. These days, even fast food can get near the $10/meal mark. +1 +2

RE: Modern Food?

We stay away from chain restaurant food. Most chains publish their nutrition guide. Sodium's off the chart. It's amazing that you can have 3/4 your daily allowance of sodium in a dish and it doesn't even taste salty. Fat and calories are also off the charts at most chains. In fact most food prepared in restaurants is fattening. We cook our own as much as possible.

RE: how to level a trailer

I guaranty that if you stick a level in more than one place on your RV that you'll have more than one different readings. When I set mine up for the Levelmate Pro that I installed I just used the floor in front of the sink. No matter where I stick the level I get a different reading.

RE: Push to privatize National Park Service campgrounds

In the end it's all about services. If a private company can take over and give as good or better results without raising prices beyond reason then there shouldn't be any issues. We had a new company come to Oregon and take over management of several FS campgrounds. They did improvements and changed a few of the ways they do visitor relations all without raising prices. Ironically the new company is CLM ( California Land Management) The end result will fall directly on who's chosen to run the parks.

RE: Push to privatize National Park Service campgrounds

Seniors are one group that might be hit hard by the policies, if adopted. The memo argues that the 50 percent discount for seniors should apply only to base campsite fees and encourages NPS to introduce “new senior fee blackout periods during peak season periods.” A good idea that makes a lot of sense. Why do seniors get a %50 discount to begin with, or a discount at all. I suppose the theory is that: 1) They've paid taxes for 45+ year 2) They theoretically have lower incomes 3) They vote in very high numbers and are quite vindictive towards politicians that take away some benefit. They are also very loud while being vindictive. Number three is obviously the most important from the political viewpoint. I'm still paying Fed taxes on SS and my Pension. Yes I do have a lower income. x2 on 3. FWIW We hardly go to NP.s But we do do a lot of FS camping where we get 50% off.

RE: Push to privatize National Park Service campgrounds

I don't get the senior discount thing and never have despite being of the age I can get it at different places. If you're given a discount for something because of your age, do you demand to pay full price? x2

RE: 5th wheel with largest tanks

RE: RV Cover

Last ADCO cover was still good after 6 years in the PNW. I intend to get the same again for our new TT. Cover sharp edges, keep it tight but not stressed and it should last a long time.

RE: Trailer Suspension Questions

My TT came with the MR 3000, wet bolts and shocks. Floats like a butterfly.

RE: New Winnebago trailer line coming out?

While some sites claim to show the floor plan of this one I haven’t seen any pictures yet. One dealer reported an overall height of 11’6” which is tooooo much for anything but RV parks. I would 100% look for a different sales person and or dealer.

RE: Trying to find this floorplan

Bedrooms in the front. That one will be too heavy. 4468# UVW per brochure will be more when you add propane and batteries. Big concern even if you could tow it is the scary low CCC of 740#. Minus propane and batteries you'll end up with only 600-650# for cargo. Thats doable for some folks but then you'd be maxed out on the TT which is not good. If you only have a 5000# tow rating then your receiver is probably rated around 500# as well. With a 5000# TT the recommended TW will be around 700+#'s. While on paper it may seem doable I think once you actually load up it's probably too much.

RE: Ram overtakes GM

Seems the General is trying to lure customers back by slashing prices... Chevy slashes Silverado prices While supplies last. :)

RE: Winter Cover

I used an ADCO on my previous 5er for 6 years from Nov 1st to April 1st in the PNW. Zero tears. You need to cover the sharp protrusions so the cover doesn't wear on them. Keep it tight but not so tight that it's stressed. My ADCO didn't keep it dry either but it also didn't allow rain to fall 100% on it. Most was shielded off. I'm going with the same cover for our new TT for this winter. FWIW when we got rid of our 5er I left the cover under the bed since it was still in great shape.

RE: Grand Design Imagine

Check the axles to see if they're 3500# and 3" dia. GD was putting 3500# and 2-3/4" axles on many of the Imagines back then. Also look at your CCC sticker. Many early Imagines had CCC's of only 950#-1100#'s +/-. Latter on GD started installing 4400# axles on units that came with 3500# axles to get the CCC higher.

RE: Experience towing w/ 2WD F250, 2500 or other 3/4 ton

I've towed with both. Only times I've needed 4wd was when backing up on the leveling blocks on a gravel surface and traveling down a few gravel roads where the road had some bad washboard on uphill curves. Since you don't boondock I'm guessing you'll be fine.
