RE: weight on slide out

Is your dinette sofa slide is hydraulic if so I wouldn't worry about it unless everyone sitting in the recliners are 300#ers.

RE: 2020 F-250

I had the B&W turn ball on my previous F350 brought the present one it didn't have Ford prep. Easier to have the B&W installed by a local upfitter than the dealer that seemed clueless about the puck system.

RE: Electrical Extension Cords

We're full-time RVers with a 50amp 5er but carry a 25 ft 30 amp cord for those occasions we come up short. We may only use it once a year

RE: Traveling with a Dish Tailgater

We've had ours for 7 years. When you plug it in it will show what state it was last setup on. You can then change it to the state your in. The tailgater will do a self check then search for the satellite and aquire your signal.

RE: Durango, Colorado or Shiprock, New Mexico.????

550 from Ouray to Durango is an incredible trip for scenery. But if you or anyone with you has a problem with heights, narrow highways, and steep drops off the side (and many do) I would not recommend it. It would be a very stressful and unpleasant trip. Driven it by car would not pull the fiver over it. Knowing my wife I would probably just run off the road so I wouldn't need to hear her directing my driving from the passenger seat.

RE: How dependable are newer trucks with higher mileage?

I traded in my 09 F350 cc drw in 17 with 62,000 with all service done by Ford dealerships. Reason was I was at wt capacity and our new 5er weighted more dry than what our previous weighted fully loaded. Not every used vehicle has been abused.

RE: Travel Restrictions Coming

Let's all hope, as the vaccines are rolled out, this scourge of humanity gets under control, and we can live our lives normally again. Problem is politicians that have no clue and only do or say what they think will get them reelected.

RE: Full time with DirectTV

I called again and asked for a supervisor. The seemed to finally understand what was going on. They had to cancel the order to install a dish at the address of my mail-forwarding service. Unbelievable. Did the original 'service person' speak and understand English?

RE: East Coast Road Trip????? Pandemic?

PA, NJ BOTH have travel bans "listed".. either a negative test, or self quarantine for 10 days .. I believe DE does not, and THINK MD does... There is no way to enforce this Go for it This time of year none of those states interest me for camping.

RE: Quality Decline since Covid

Besides the rush to crank more out, more of the MFGs are using lots of temp labor and new-hires, to replace the workers out because of Covid, or who can't work because of at-risk family. Automakers have reported the same issues. Parts suppliers too, combined with some imported components becoming unavailable, causing parts makers to have to substitute components. The new normal?

RE: Making Oil

Your more likely to have fuel wash in the oil with long idling as the engine never reached operating temp.

RE: Filling large propane tank on the road

Many MH owners have extend a stay hookups. Works well if you have a toad that can take the tank to a fill station.

RE: question about service

I have come to the conclusion that you look at a RV and the list price is reduced to $xxxxxx. Wow what savings!!! Truth the list price is what it would have sold for if they had built it right. You get that discount because they didn't and you'll need that discount difference to pay for parts and labor to bring it up to what they pretended to sell you.

RE: Using Side/Rear Cameras for Security

The only campsite intruders we have had in 11 years of fulltiming have been the wildlife type. Most have been the annoying kind though we have had several bears come lurking around.

RE: 2020 new truck sales

Seems like all you see around here are Rams, I would have thought their numbers would be higher. I think it's because Ram drivers like to gut the exhause system so you hear them and say what's that noise and look but you don't hear that racket when a dozen Fords or Chevy's roll by so it seems there are more Rams around.

RE: A top to bottom look at green energy

One word, geothermal. I vote nuclear but the wife yells at me when I say it. Her, where can we dispose of the waste.

RE: Installing a safe?

If you plan on using it for a gun to be used as protection, it doesn’t do any good if you make it inaccessible when you need it. I agree. We have one that was installed at the factory. It's in the back wall of the closet wouldn't want to store defense weapon in it. I have to remove an armload of clothes to access it.

RE: Value of Spare Tire and wheel

Always good to have a spare cause s*** happens when least expected.

RE: Is there something I am missing ?

I find it interesting that the pro mask crowd have a very low opinion of the intelligence of the anti mask crowd. A definite over estimation of their own intelligence but I sense a definite fear in their responses.
