RE: I think they’re doing it wrong

Not knowing the nature of the trailer other than the lack of safety chains I see nothing wrong. It looks funny but it could add up.

RE: Rocks?

Some pre pottery cultures heated water by putting it in water tight baskets and then throwing in hot rocks.

RE: So Dakota Domicile

I Now I just have to stay one step in front of the revenue collectors (CHP) till I retire in December and head south. I hope they nail you.

RE: For Standard Gear, What's your ladder of choice?

I tried one of those telescoping ladders and it was both heavy and a pain in the ass to use, a real finger pincher. I gave it away and bought a 17 foot Little Giant. It easier to use and works as both a straight ladder and step ladder.

RE: Newmar Sold

So, the workers are not going to do shoddy work because the management is different. They will if new management wants shoddy work; picks up the pace say. Nicer work takes more time and how much time a task is given is a management decision.

RE: “I was shocked with just how white it was there,” she said.

This racist stuff is getting old. It IS old, since 1619 if you only count the English colonies.

RE: “I was shocked with just how white it was there,” she said.

Hell, I'm white and I get tired of looking at all the white people in RV parks and campgrounds. And it seems most are either boring bourgeois white bread types or white trash. Not too many as hep as I am.

RE: RVing YouTube videos???

I find some fixing and maintaining videos of value but I quickly tired of narcissistic people documenting their banal daily existence. Those hillbillys in the Airstream with the wife who thinks she's Anne Baxter really got on my nerves.

RE: Tornado hits Carolina camp ground

If I had a park model I'd have it adequately insured and have no qualms about leaving it in the lurch. No doubt others think the same.

RE: RV Fatality in Oklahoma

People die every day on the roadways for a wide variety of reasons; speeding, alcohol, texting, road rage, etc. While tragic, what makes this one so special? Do we need to set up a new forum "road deaths" so everyone can read about all the traffic incidents? I guess it escaped you that it was RV related on a RV forum, smh If car forums discussed every car wreck...

RE: Chatanooga bound

Chattanooga and the area nearby played a crucial role in the War of the Rebellion and there are many preserved NPS sites including the entire Chickamauga battlefield, sites on the Lookout Mountain and Missionary Ridge battlefields, Orchard Knob and the national military cemetery.

RE: Electric slide outs

Our 2016 Tiffin gasser has two slides: the large "front room" slide is an HWH hydraulic and the small bedroom slide is a Lippert electric. We had a problem with the motors of the electric one going out of sync because we stopped partway through the stroke. A youtube video showed how to resync the motors and keep them in sync; resyncing was easily and simply done and no problem since.

RE: FYI. Ford F150 V8

Many latest generation F-150s have over 1800 pounds payload as standard. And optionally up to over 3000 pounds.

RE: Bicycle Safety

Cable locks are useless, they can be cut with a set of side cutters. Nor will any old chain work, no matter how heavy, against bolt cutters. Hardened dedicated bike chains are very resistant to even large bolt cutters but are very heavy and expensive. If a tree is handy we lock our trikes up around a tree with Kryptonite's best chains and locks. We can also use one of our RVs leveling jack legs to lock to. We also use cable locks that alarm when the cable is cut. On top of that we have motion sensors that alarm if the trikes are moved.

RE: Ford 7.3L V8 Power Numbers & They Are Lower Than We Thought!

According to a Ford chart I saw the 430 HP version of the engine will be standard on F53 and E series motorhome chassis and the detuned version will be an option on E series chassis. 430hp in a class A gasser, which have a top GVWR of 26K, is going to give a higher horsepower to weight ratio than most, if not all, DPs. That's interesting.

RE: Curb weight

This “getting older” stuff is mental, not physical. Nonsense. It's very physical for many people.

RE: MN new laws August 1st

I've been up here near Duluth since May and I think the drivers are pretty good. The people are laid back and engaging.

RE: MN new laws August 1st

Why pass a law if no one will enforce it? Because many people will obey the law and that in itself is beneficial.

RE: Tariffs trip up the all-American RV industry

I chose to receive my SS early because you never know the future. Now I’ve reached the age of the full SS amount I wish I would have waited. My choice, my problem. EVERONE has life choices to make. Make the right one or the wrong one you are responsible for that choice. Some people have the opportunity to make better choices than others. And elites routinely evade responsibility for bad choices. As do those who use corporations to evade personal responsibility.

RE: Tariffs trip up the all-American RV industry

They kill more miners in one year in those Chinese mines, than were killed in North American underground mines during the entire history of North American mines. How many miners have been killed in North America? Did the Spanish keep records on mining deaths in New Spain? Did Mexico?
