RE: Good Sams Roadside Assistance Renewal or lack of it!

After the expiration date they will still fill your mail box with trash. If you call the answer will be the same. When I had a horse trailer with living quarters they wouldn't sell me GS ERS but they kept sending me trash mail about buying ERS. I think you will be better off with Coachnet. GS may be making more profits for their investors but Marcus detroyed CW and GS customer service.:(

RE: Cab interference with SB towing gooseneck horse trailer

I guess it all depends on how wide the trailer is at the very front, and how sharp you must turn to get into and out of a gas station, or the loading and unloading locations. Many gooseneck trailers only have a 4' wide area near the front, and can accommodate a 90 degree turn if required, because the part over the bed is not a full 8' wide! You could also consider installing the hitch ball a few inches behind the rear axle, if it looks like it will be really close. It is recommended to have the ball mount 1" in front of the rear axle, but that is not a fixed in stone requirement. A dually truck can handle a little more weight on the rear axle than a typical F-250. So it d Good luck, Fred. I agree, stock and horse trailers have a bullet shaped nose. I don't think you should try to change where manufacture suggests mounting the hitch. Hitches are designed to take advantage of holes in the hitch and PU frame and also where the spare is mounted. You could run into quite a few needless problems. My gooseneck hitch, if moved back would not allow mounting of spare tire. Your biggest problem would be with an old horse trailer and a newer PU. Newer PU rails have increased in height. Of course there is some adjustment in in gooseneck height. JMHO

RE: Snake Bite Kit

For over 50 years I've RV'd, camped, back packed and slept on the ground in Wy, CO, AZ, & CA. I have seen maybe a dozen snakes. Those crawled off when I got close. However, I don't stick my hands down under rocks looking for snakes plus I try to be a little observant. I believe most sporting goods stores carry snake bite kits but I doubt you will see a snake in your travels. If you do that snake will probably be crawling the other way or curled up under a rock hissing at you for annoying them.

RE: Cab interference with SB towing gooseneck horse trailer

I towed a 20 ft goose neck horse trailer and also a goose neck stock trailer with a SB F250 and never had a problem. I towed Titan trailers. The goose neck is mounted at the very front of the trailer.

RE: How to test for current

In the future if you have meter leads that accept alligator clips clip onto a needle with both leads and normally you can get into small places with your probe. I only recommend this for 12 volts not 110 vac

RE: Another WalMart shooting

The guy had a warrant out for his arrest. He could have been in a car, truck or any other type of vehicle. he happened to be in an RV. Since he was in a bus maybe Walmart will just limit their restrictions to class A vehicles.:h Summer is almost here and we'll be talking about great camping trips:B

RE: Hauling an extra propane tank

When you say camper I am assuming TC i.e. truck camper. Inside not a good idea and like posted on the rear would also be dangerous. There are so many places now that fill tanks probably no need for the extra tank. Why not inside the camper? Isn't that essentially where the tank(s) are on most TCs? How about strap it to the roof? Then it's completely out of the way until u need it. On its side wouldn't be taller than the air conditioner. The tanks are in a separate vented compartment exterior to the inside. a build up of propane inside and one spark could make a camper into a huge bomb. I know there are RVers that do carry them inside but not recommended.

RE: Hauling an extra propane tank

When you say camper I am assuming TC i.e. truck camper. Inside not a good idea and like posted on the rear would also be dangerous. If you are referring to camper as TT i.e travel trailer I mounted a bracket in my pick up bed and carried the extra tank. The only problem I ever had was driving into an airport parking lot. It caused the security guards to panic. There are so many places now that fill tanks probably no need for the extra tank.

RE: My dad thought he was a goner

In 1996 I drove into an RV dealer in southern CA and said I was interested in buying a small TT. The salesman asked me "is that your 1/2 ton PU"? I Told him yes but was interested in the 16 ft TT in the lot. The salesman responded "I don't have anything in the lot that your 1/2 PU can safely tow". Times have changed. They are so desperate for sales they would have sold me a 40' TT and wished me well. That salesman was, IMO, a fool. You would have been fine towing a 16 foot TT with a half ton pickup. I base that statement on personal experience, having towed a 16 foot camp trailer from Greybull, WY to Tucson and back with a Ford E150 Club Wagon, using a standard receiver hitch with no WDH or "sway control". We frequently took it to Medicine Lodge Campground, as well. In fact, I towed a 19 ft. TT with that same Club Wagon from Great Falls, MT to Wood Lake Campground in the mountains above Augusta, MT. However, when I towed the 19 foot trailer with the Jeep Wagoneer, a WDH was an absolute necessity, to level the Wagoneer. No sway control was used, though. Our favorite trip with that rig was across Roger's Pass to Copper Creek Campground near Lincoln, MT. It bears repeating: A properly built, properly loaded trailer, being towed by the proper vehicle, using the proper tires, WILL...NOT...SWAY! If it does, something is WRONG! DO NOT attempt to "fix" it using some gadget to dampen the sway. FIND the problem, and FIX IT! Do this for YOUR safety, and the safety of others. Yup, thats the old days. Being a fool for having ethics. Today is a different world. Absolutely no ethics.

RE: $48,447

Of coarse TCs became very popular in CA in the 60s because we weren't limited to 55 mph like towing a TT. Put a rack on the rear and take your motor bike along with you.

RE: $48,447

We bought a realy nice Lance TC (825 model I believe) in 2001. Paid $600. Think it was an 88 to 90 model year. Very nice, worked out well, no major issues or repairs. Point is....when we have looked at Lance (and other TC's) recently I choke at the cost. If we went that way in the future, it would have to be used. For now, a TT works well for us with the kiddies. I bought an 1987 Lance 10 1/2 ft TC fully loaded and with the long overhang for a crew cab brand new in 87 for $11,500. They were very well built back then. Everything worked and NO warranty problems.

RE: Question for people that live in the land of snow

If the temp is below 10 F I am winterized. I just blow out the lines. Takes me about 20 minutes because I have a W/D. If the temp goes above 10 F I dewinterize by taking on water.

RE: highway 16 from Buffalo to Worland Wyoming?

Hwy 16 is good from Buffalo to Worland. Fuel up in Buffalo. Not much between Buffalo and Worland. Just beware of how to drive down mountain grades and letting your engine do the work.

RE: Flat Towing Makes my Tires Noisy

I think tire noise or howling is a result of tread design. I would talk to a high quality tire dealer on which brands have less noise.

RE: Positive or Negative to Battery switch

It's usually Pos. Think of Neg as the ground, makes no sense disconnecting it when it's literally sitting on it. As the boater noted, there is more risk to make a spark if Pos remains connected. It will "work" either way, but switch on Pos is better. Interesting. Don't those little electrons fly off the atoms and really come out of the negative terminal and go back in the positive terminal?:B Either way will work as long as the circuit is broken. Don't take this serious, just kidding

RE: Braking System - Stay-In-Play Duo?

Surge brakes have been around for quite a while. Different types of trailer used them long before they were used on towed RV vehicles. They are all reliable fixed or portable. The fixed units have their advantages. Probably less work to hook up and go. The portable units also have their advantages. If you sell a tow vehicle or have more than one tow vehicle. The tow vehicle brakes that don't use the surge system are probably better under some conditions. For example down steep grades where a surge system, some models, don't have in cab adjustable control. Mostly, the big difference in toad brakes are personal choice not a safety issue. Bottom line. If I was overly or hyper concerned about equipment and safety I wouldn't be driving a class A on a highway. Most MHs fall apart in accidents plus there is nothing in front of the driver or passengers in an accident.
