RE: Which Hitch do I buy?

I also have a 2500 Ram CTD , for me the WDH is unnecessary . Try it without ! Spend the money on whiskey , cigarettes and wild woman !

A richer man !

In Tallahassee this morn I was trying on foot to cross the intersection of Appalach and Capitol Circle , Three lanes all ways , plus 2 lane turning lanes . Lots of traffic. Sprinting I made it about half way across and was standing on one of the " islands " waiting for the lights to change . Traffic was moving fast except for the turning lanes . I saw an auto slowing and rolling down his window . Thinking they were going to ask a question I leaned into the slowing car ! The guy stuck a one dollar bill into my hand , nodded his head and accelerated . I now know where that I am gonna hang out a lot more .

Why ? trailer jacks so tall ?

Many complain that they can not open the tailgate on their pickup while hitched to their trailer . Me too ! My jack is ten or eleven inches taller than needs to be ! Probably the same for most of you .

RE: The price of new trucks is beyond comprehension!

I paid $ 42,000 for my 2014 Ram 2500 , 110 thousand miles ago . I just asked Kelly Blue Book what it would bring in a private party sale , they sez $31,691 .I ain't lookin to sell but I was curious after 19 pages of discussion , I bought my first 3 bedroom house for $9,700 in 1959 .

RE: Stabilizer blocks alternatives

I made plywood boxes out of 3/8ths plywood . With a little thought you can get 3 different heights out of each box . I believe mine are 4 inch , 7 inch or ten inches . Will they last , mine are 7 years old !

RE: Lessons Learned From RV Cover Erection

If building near or under trees pay a little extra and get vertical panels , horizontal panels catch leaves and cause rust and catch seeds causing weeds to grow on roof and worms and critters in the wet leaves .

RE: 6 or 12 That is the question

I read Valhalla statement about 2 six volts turning a small motor . I am glad that I had not read it years ago when for seven years I had two 6 volt golf car batteries starting a 6-71 Detroit in a dive boat !

RE: Wastewater Tote & Fresh Water Containers - Do you use them?

For fresh we use a 35 gallon tank that sits in bed of truck and will gravity feed into TT . We bought the tank at Tractor Supply for $109 .Have never needed a portable waste tote .

RE: level on level ground and towing

It would be kinda impossible to tow level , movement is good for absolution refrigerators ! When parked the manufacturer sez if you can walk around comfortably , that is close enough !

RE: Wheel Stop vs Wheel Chocks

Real men will not use plastic chocks , we cut down trees and make 4x4s cut at an angle . Also when we drive off and forget them we have not damaged the ecology !

RE: Looking for info on Insurance

Good Sam for 25 years , switched when I could not not get through their phone system . You can spend weeks trying to talk to a human .

RE: Anyone have an all elec. car

The truck stop in Perry Fl. is adding six charging ports over by the restaurant . I must assume many locations will be opening up charging sites . There are several TTs in Florida being pulled by Tesla s.

I am glad that I do not live in California !

My wife and I shoot 2 or 3 thousand pin nails a month in our craft business . My new shipment came with this warning " California - use of this product may cause reproductive harm ". Where do they think that I shoot them ?

Far wood on cold nites , on REALLY cold nites we burn Tars . Sometimes it will get down into 40 degrees .
wanderingbob 07/10/21 02:36pm Travel Trailers

That is what we call them in the backwoods of Florida , TARS . I just bought 4 new tars , was not a whole lot wrong with the old ones except . Last week I went out to check the air pressure and the two tars on the sunny side , both had OK pressure but you could spin the tire stems round and round . Never heard of that before , they were 5 year old Goodyear with 18 K miles . I figgered if I gotta dismount em I might as well put new shoes on . Man at Discount Tar in Tally said he had never seen that before .

RE: How old is too old?

I am 77 and we travel all the time . My 79 YO brother just turned in his drivers license , he went to sleep twice at red lights in one day . I would guess that we all will know when its time !
