RE: You can't make me

How about this, I own the building the parking lot and the business. No shirt no shoes No MASK no service Pretty simple. You see IL has made it a felony to assault an employee over mask discipline? Way to go Ill!!!!!

RE: Private property parking

You want a service from someone. Paying them for the service is how the world rotates. He is paying them. A full hook up site for a month. For gathering a few eggs and feeding some chickens. Pretty sweet deal to me. Ya know you comment on almost every post, and never a good comment never a positive comment, always the school hall monitor type of comment. Why is that?

RE: Totaled vehicles...sometimes surprising.

But we keep asking for more bells and whistles, more electronics more systems more conectability. Every little option boosts the insurance rates, make it more technical harder to diagnose and repair. easier to total!

RE: Question about tires

You are over thinking this. You will be fine. Personally I prefer LT just due to the stiffer sidewalls,but your rating will handle anything you can hook to your truck Your axles are used in many different applications so their rating may be differnt from one to another. Millions hook to travel trailers every year, billions over the decades. Our highways are not strewn with death and destruction wrought by dangerous RV'ers. Hell my grandparents towed a trailer across the country with an 85 hp buick. In the thirties my grandpa toured the nation hauling a merry go round behind a Model T truck. This ain't rocket science folks!

RE: over nite stops

Not just overnight stops. Sure RVers have every right to use public facilities in rest areas. What I have trouble standing under is the number of RVs you see in a rest area that pull past a bunch of MT spaces, pull into the spot close to bathroom. Then get out of TV, and into trailer. After a bit, back in TV, and down the road. Now, the point is not do you have a right to use that space, but why? If using your own, why not use it out at the end of lot, be polite to the people that must use public restroom? That is an amazingly petty complaint. Do you really monitor peoples activities that closely? Last time I looked all interstate parking stalls were pretty much the same. Maybe we should sign the one closest to the toilet "For those the need to go NOW" or "Poop Emergency, Don't get in my way"

RE: over nite stops

I understand it is a problem, one that the govt has to figure out. My brother hauls a tanker of soybean oil out of Port of Baltimore couple times a week. His employer had a terminal constructed that was intentionally located for a days run. DOT changed the rules. Its multi million dollar investment is now about 150 miles short of a legal run. Brother will use an old truck that is not subject to the electronic log and takes his chances.

RE: Finding DIY car/truck wash locations north of Dallas?

We did the grand loop and found there was a dearth of manual car washes in the west. Maybe water restrictions?

RE: GPS recommendations

I have always used a garmin. I think that they are in bed with the Chamber of Commerce though. It will without fail attempt to run me through the business district. Always need to keep my eye open for the bypass.

RE: over nite stops

I also use rest stops as they were intended. My tax dollars helped build them and they were intended for all motorists. I do try to be cognizant of their needs, but that does not preclude me from using taxpayer provided services. I will give you one hint though. When pulling in to a rest stop parking spot ,DO NOT pull to the front of a parking spot, Leave the tail of your rig near the back end of the spot. Trucker does not want to pull into a spot only to find an RV 15 feet into the stall,hidden from view by the trucks on either side.

RE: Class-C'ers Unsecured EZ-Up Meets Side of Nice Prevost

"I am sure that the Prevost owner has insurance and although a pain, will not cause him financial distress." So you are saying the Prevo guy should pick up the tab? I don't think so Yes that is exactly what I am saying. That is what insurance is for. At most the king could sue the low life for the deductible!

RE: Class-C'ers Unsecured EZ-Up Meets Side of Nice Prevost

I am sure there was no intent. Just a careless accident Did you cry because it was a Prevost, or because a low life class C had the unmitigated gall to be close to the kings ride. I am sure that the Prevost owner has insurance and although a pain, will not cause him financial distress. Why does the Brand and type make a difference, this is akin to naming the race of a person when race has nothing to do with the story!

RE: Shifting An Automatic when towing.

I lock out 6th in my hemi and keep it in tow haul. Going down a steep incline I drop it to third,long before I need to and let the tranny do it's job.

RE: Are RV sewer hose supports necessary?

We have a set and use them probably 30% of the time. Our Hybrid is low and we don't get that powered gravity slam that most,(taller), get. While not critical for the price why not?

RE: Losing home & need to immediately relocate to truck camper

Since your knowledge base is zero,I would suggest sitting down for 36 hours and watch you tube video's. What is your tolerance to disgusting? Sponge baths for weeks at a time and compost/cassette toilets will test that to the max! Carrying ample water is the biggest logistical problem. A travel trailer would probably be the most economical to start with. Why are you starting this endeavor? Financial collapse? Broken marriage, running from the law, or just a desire to go? The only place for extensive boondocking is in the West. You have a ton of questions which is good, doing your diligence, but it would be much easier to help if you laid out a basic synopsis of your reasons, your goal and your expectations. One last thing,and I don't mean to be unsympathetic, BUT, if this a hedge against homelessness, please disavow yourself of the notion immediately. Stay where you are at and take advantage of any and all charitable and governmental services designed to better your situation. The last thing the RV community needs is another broken down camper, festooned with blue tarps and a pitbull tied to the bumper!

RE: Roadside Food stops?

I think you're nuts. This Covid ere last thing I would want to do is enter some random roadhouse for a meal. Eat out of your fridge,but if you are desperate for a SYSCO generic meal, I am sure that you can find a place with a walk up window. You can stretch your legs on any piece of land that is not an interstate shoulder.

RE: too much truck or not enough trailer?

I would bet dollars to donuts that if you read the owners manual that belongs to that trailer,it would tell you in no uncertain terms not to tow with a truck over a certain size. Any manufacturer or distributer that would allow a new trailer to be transported by this rig should be forced into full disclosure.

RE: too much truck or not enough trailer?

Well I'll give the guy the benefit of the doubt. Pretty sure anyone w a dually knows about a drop hitch. Perhaps there is a decent explanation. Does buying a dually impart some kind of special knowledge, or a dually owners just naturally smarter than us mere single wheel owners?

RE: too much truck or not enough trailer?

Actually, there is no such thing as too much truck, unlike too much trailer & not enough truck. This guy just needs to find out about a lower drop hitch. :S Wrong! Dang sure is such a thing as to much truck. That dually unless carrying some weight is gonna pound the heck out of that trailer. A suspension that hard with that lite a trailer is synonymous to slamming the tongue on the ground several hundred times per mile. Won't be instant destruction, but will impart a bunch of metal fatigue over time

RE: Pay showers?

I spoke to one CG manager once about his pay showers. He said they didn't profit a bit, but it kept the kids from turning on all the showers a letting them run.
