RE: It's a wonderful day: COVID vaccinations

I have already signed up for our local health department site and also our local hospital and Doctors office. Not much else I can do at this point except wait and hope like many others. Barney

RE: It's a wonderful day: COVID vaccinations

I wish Michigan would get going! I am almost 84 with numerous heart and other issues and have not even had a notice to make an appointment yet. Maybe I'll just drive down and give Moderator a visit. :W Barney

RE: First camp trip?

I don't think the photo is off at all. Looks like they are camped on a fairly sharp downhill slope. Looks like about the angle of my driveway at home. Would hope they have good chocks!:E Edit: Nice to see an old Avion! My parents full timed in one for about 15 years before settling down in California. Wish I had that trailer now. The Avion was, in my opinion, far superior to the Airstream in looks and build quality. It towed just as well also. They towed it all over the country from California to Florida Barney

RE: BedRug with hitch

I'll agree 100% with the easy on the knees part. We have had bed rugs in three of our trucks and other than things not sliding around easy the easy on the knees when crawling around in the bed is what made me keep getting one every time I got a new truck. I cannot bend over much so anything that needs bending over for gets done on my knees. :E It has about a half inch of foam bonded under the rug material. I put it in right over the factory sprayed in bed liner. Besides that, they look great! :B Barney

RE: Chipmunks

Try the bucket "O" death. Five gallon bucket filled half way with water, cover water with a couple handful's of sunflower seeds. Give them a little ramp to go up, usually a trail of seeds. They dive in for the seeds not seeing the water and drown. This really works. I have caught many with this method. This^^^^^. We have our trailer in a campground situated in the middle of a state forest. One winter they made a mess and had nests in our kitchen drawers! We found their entrance holes and sealed them up with aluminum sheet metal. Have not had any more inside for the past several years (knock on wood!). Squirrels are abundant and we got rid of most of them using the bucket method. Still put out the bucket once or twice a year and get some more. You will be amazed at how well this works! Seems we have fewer each year. Barney

RE: Filling large propane tank on the road

When we snowbirded in the Tampa, Florida or San Antonio,Texas area for 18 years most of the motorhome owners there used a propane delivery service so they would not have to unhook and get the rig ready for travel just to fill propane. I have a travel trailer so I was able to just take the propane tanks to the fill station. I suspect the delivery cost for the motorhome is quite a bit higher than what I had to pay but would probably be worth it to not have to move. You might want to consider moving a bit farther South where the temperatures are not so cold. Just about anything in Florida South of Interstate 4 would probably be ok. One thing for sure, you would use less propane!:D Barney

RE: Shore power plug conversion?

Thank you for the follow up post. I am sorry you didn't get what you ordered and are successful with the refund. I am going to close this thread now since the OP's question has been answered. Barney

RE: Shore power plug conversion?

I received a notice from Sprey that he got something other than the cords. I am going to delete any links to that site for false advertising. Barney Edit: If any of you DO get the cord instead of something else please also let me know. I have already removed the links in the post but if that was in error, I will restore them. SPRey, I was mistaken and the PM I received was from KMLsquared.

RE: Collecting 5th wheel Tow Data, just for fun, 2000 mile trip

I had a 2002 F250 with the 7.3 TD until 2016 when I finally got a Ram Cummins. I put over 250,000 miles on that Ford and only had to replace the transmission and differential gear. The engine was bullet proof with no repairs at all except religious routine maintenance even with a tuner applied "towing tune" on it. :) Barney

RE: Shore power plug conversion?

SPRey, I just sent you a private message. Look for red notice in upper right corner of your screen. Barney To the rest of the members who have purchased an extension cord via the link given earlier. Please let me know, via PM, if you get what you ordered. Thank you. Barney

Instead of putting up with this nonsense, I would download the excellent and free Open Office. Have been using this for years and it has almost all the features of the MS suite with non of the disadvantages. Product description.I'd say it is worth a try.:) If it works for you then you could delete the MS Office suite, along with its' problems, from your computer and use any e-mail client you prefer.

RE: WD hitch setup with air bags

OP, I would go back to the original WD bars and forget about the front air bags. I would try to get the front down to the original height via the WD bars and let the rear take care of itself. If the rear is still too low than add the air bags but don't get it higher than original height. Barney

RE: Vaccine being ships first shots within 24 hours

What happens if you are not in your home state for either of the two shots? Probably be in Florida when TN time comes up. Retired military so can you receive it at a VA or Military hospital? I would guess you can. Both my wife and I got the Shingles vaccine shot, when it first came out, at MacDill Air Force base hospital in Tampa Florida while we were snowbirding in the campground there many years ago. Don't know about the VA but I suspect that you can get it there also. Doesn't cost anything to ask.:) Barney

RE: WD hitch setup with air bags

Hank, You would probably be better off tilting your hitch head back a bit and using the 5 links under tension as you originally did. Using only 4 runs the risk of jamming the wd bars into the brackets and sliding them back or forward on the A frame. 5 links is usually the minimum recommended by most manufacturers to allow room for the bars to go back and forth during turns. By tilting the hitch head rearwards some more, you can get additional lift on the bars with the same amount of chain lengths. If you have not already seen it, we have an old but excellent thread on how to set up the WD hitch stuck at the top of this forum here. Part of it discusses the reason that manufacturers recommend a minimum of 5 links under tension. Barney
