RE: Pick up truck remembrance !

You old fogeys should remember the AM radios that had a vibrator tube built in , rectifier or something . If the radio would not start you would smack it on the bottom to make it go ! And my 50 model flathead , you had to change water hoses spring and/or fall to put water thru the cab heater !

RE: Running lights always on

The easiest place to do this is inside the seven way plug ! Some dealers will do this at shows .

RE: Pick up truck remembrance !

All my best memories are of family , pick up trucks and sailboats . Kinda sounds like a country song . Nope , ain't no beer or trains or rain or momma or getting drunk . Now it sounds like a country song .

RE: Pick up truck remembrance !

In my Daytona in early 60s there were two International pick ups . My father and uncle . We kidded them all the time and called the trucks " corn binders '. We always told them that they needed to re-aim their headlamps as they now shined down between the grain rows .

Pick up truck remembrance !

Bought my first truck off of Smokey Yunick in Daytona , about 1960 or 61 , cost 1,700 dollars , about a years wages for a 16 year old kid . Six cylinder GMC . About 1963 I saw mt first P.U. with an air conditioner , musta been a rich man as they added about $400 to the price !Hung down under the hard metal dash board . Some of you older gentlemen will remember when ya saw your fist four door truck , maybe 1968 or so and in Florida mostly belonged to the state or county . Now if we see a two door truck we point it out. Remember when a spare tire and a back bumper were an option ? Oil change at 1,000 miles then Chrysler came out with a 3,000 mile oil change , all PU tires were 16 inch until some fool started putting 16.5 tires on em . Tires sizes like 600x16 , 650 x16 , now we gotta be a mathematician to figger out what they mean . In those days we regularly put 2,500 or 3,000 lbs on a half ton PU and no one on the internet scolded us . Six or seven flats a year was about normal , pinched a tube ! Now I drive my Ram Tradesman 70,000 and buy another set of Michelin's, never having a flat , kinda takes all the fun out of it . No fancy trailer hitches , we stuck a ball on the step bumper and strung wires allover the place . My first trailer brake was hand operated by a big long handle strapped on to the column ! What do you guys remember ?

RE: Climbing onto the tail gate.

We use a alum stepladder that rides inside the camper on the floor , open the door and there it is .
wanderingbob 02/03/20 05:39pm Truck Campers
how do dey do dat ?

Commercial on television where they make your trailer " disappear " .and while I have your attention , how much does that fancy tailgate on GMC cost ? I ain't gonna buy anything but a Ram Tradesman , I m just curious !

RE: good Sam VS AARP.

No discount card is good unless you have use for it ! AARP pays for its self many times over at Dennys restaurants ,15% ain't bad . We can eat breakfast for less than $7 . Passport is good if ya stay 3 or 4 times a year . We only stay at Passport , but I am a cheap SOB ! we are not campers , we are travelers and a " Resort " has no appeal . But different strokes for different folks .

RE: Medicare ads!!!!!

My opinion , any thing that you see constantly on TVs or magazines must have a tremendous profit margin . They ain't trying to sell ya something that has no profit for them . I like that add that sez," you "MAY" be eligible for free dental , drugs , eyeglasses , cell phones and transportation . RIGHT , do not call me , I will call when I am ready !

RE: Dual Fuel Generators

I am down here in Crawfordville and have a Champion dual fuel , two years old. No problems at all .I run on propane and marine gas , non ethanol. I have been thru many canes with generators . Just run for several hours in morn and several hours in eve . Hooking into house system has never been necessary for me as all I try to run is reffer and freezer . My pump will hold pressure for enuf to get thru the day . Shower at nite when generator is running . Another advantage to not hooking in to house is if I like my neighbors I can run their refrig for a couple hours . It is not necessary to run more than 5 or 6 hours a day .
