RE: Tow/Haul off or on(ram)

I'd like to know what transmission does that. In most, OD off means exactly that - overdrive gears are not used, only up to and including direct drive. Again, *most* transmissions would lock up sooner in direct drive, with OD off. I've never come across one where in OD off it stays in direct but with the converter unlocked. You might want to check what transmissions have direct drive, mine doesn't. Must be a very old one. Even my old Ford 2000 has a locking torque converter. It locks up even when OD is off

RE: Tow/Haul off or on(ram)

I use tow mode and OD off every time I tow. Less shifting = cooler transmission. Another trick for a cooler transmission is to take it out of drive if you are going to be stopped very long. I have seen that in a couple of my owner's manuals. One even warns that the transmission will overheat if left in drive too long while stopped. That takes a long time

RE: RV Weather Station

The problem with those all in one you cant site them properly. The preferred but not always achievable is the temp/hum sensor 5' over grass 30' away from any building or road way, areometer 30' in the air above buildings, and the rain gauge with a clear view of the sky protected from the wind Weather station info

RE: Wheel hub temps

Breaking and sun create heat so one side could be warmer than the other

RE: Turnouts

I will pull over if I can see far enough ahead to safely slow down to pull over, my safety over rides your desire to go faster, other wise your just going to have to follow me

RE: Lesson Learned (fuel station etiquette)

Oh I never use a debit card at a gas station. I carry cash for my fuel purchases. I use my debit card at Wal-Mart and grocery stores and if I need pocket change will get cash back or go to a bank to get cash.

RE: Bedroom AC?

Yep, we have common ducting. When running only one at a time BR A/C is felt more in L/R than L/R A/C is felt in the BR. I have common ducting also but never had them on one a ttime to check air flow front to back and back to front to see which one pushes the most air the other direction

RE: Truck with 5ver towing a boat

On my last trip I saw two trucks with 5th wheels attached and boats in tow. My brother thought this was only legal in California if the trip originated in Nevada as the laws were different. Where can I get more information about this? California allows it IF the first trailer is a 5th wheel and the whole combo is under a certain length. I couldnt find it and I want to see the veh code that says it must me a 5th wheel

Where can I get more information about this? When your current state and drivers license class allows is fine everywhere. Two things some states dont allow doubles towing period and you have to comply with every states length restrictions

Euerka Springs AR to Branson MO

Is AR-62/AR-21/MO-86/US-65 a good route to tow a 30 footer from Euerka Spring to Branson or should I pick another way

RE: Disconnect load before stopping generator?

We had a saying at the phone Co. graceful and ungraceful. Disconnect the power before pulling a card or just pull out a card under power. I built a box with 30A twist lock and 50A socket with a switch and V/A meter so I can disconnect the load before turning on or off the gen.

RE: I-44 North of Wichita Falls TX

Google maps should tell you... I used to take I44 or US281 several years ago from Wichita falls TX up to Medicine park OKLA just beyond Lawton OK to camp in Wichita Mtns Wildlife Refuge... I don't recall any fees on I44 up to that point... I bet the fees start at the HE BAILEY Turnpike TOLL STATION up past Lawton at Chicksha/Amber OKLA... You should be OK staying on I44 to get on US70 with no fees I would think... We used to get off I44 just after you get inside OKLA and head up US281 which runs parallel to I44 to the East so we could go thru places like Geronimo and some other Indian named places... I also just read this off of GOGGLE SEARCH if you can make heads or tails out it... "The H. E. Bailey Turnpike takes a generally south to north route from Wichita Falls to Lawton before turning northeast toward Oklahoma City. The turnpike's 25 miles (40 km) southern section begins at US 70, 6 miles (9.7 km) north of the Texas state line. US 277 and US 281 leave I-44 at US 70, and together run parallel to the Turnpike. The turnpike runs north-northeast for 15 miles, intersecting SH 5 along with US 277 and US 281. A toll plaza is located underneath the SH 5 overpass; loop ramps feed all entering and exiting traffic into the toll plaza. Just north of SH 5, a Service Area is located in the median of the turnpike, featuring food, fuel, and restroom amenities, as well as an Oklahoma Welcome Center. The turnpike then continues north for ten more miles until it again reaches US 277 and US 281, also intersecting SH 36. The turnpike temporarily ends at this interchange, and the two US Routes join a free ODOT-maintained I-44 through Lawton. " Roy Ken I looked at google and couldnt really tell for sure where the tolls started. I want to go from Breckenridge, TX to Choctaw OK without using a toll road, Im sure there are several ways to get to I-35 but was thinking of going to Wichita Falls and taking US-70 North of Wichita Falls to I-35 Im sure the info will just confuse the hell out my GPS:)

RE: Seattle RV Park Recs

Seattle is not RV friendly. If you are touring the south side of Seattle, then the KOA in Kent (this coming from a guy who dislikes KOA) is the best choice. If playing on the north side, then Lake Pleasant (nice park) is the place. I stayed at that park two years ago and it is the worst KOA I have ever stayed and I stay in a lot of KOA's. The sites are very narrow and not long or wide enough for you to park your TV. The price was $60 or so. I stayed there mostly because it was near a friend who lives in Kent. I will never stay there again. Wal-Mart is a better choice.
