RE: Disappointing test drive

When I'm moving coaches between dealerships I find them all to be rough riding and steering's a little squirrely. Mostly this is from sitting on the lot and not being driven. Once I get 30 or so miles on them the tires settle down and steer normally. Take a longer test drive.

RE: Problem with Cat scale weights

Did you leave the trailer on the scales when you unhooked it? If so, were the front jacks on the same weighing platform as the trailer axles or on the same platform as the drive axles?

RE: Resurgence of the Virus and Travel

San Diego County just closed bars, wineries, and breweries for the next month. We and friends had reservations in July at a beautiful RV park in Chula Vista. We cancelled those reservations, Cali doesn't need our money. There are no travel restrictions I've heard of. We're currently enroute from Tucson to Branson, MO for a week of celebrating the birth of our country. Branson is, so far, free of the idiocy enveloping our locations. After that we're going to Utah, a state without any idiotic rules. Rant: The virus numbers are a crock of lies, anyway. The medical folks are making mucho dinero for every covid patient they can claim. In Arizona it's been proven that one person can be counted multiple times for every covid test administered to that one person thus inflating the count. People can die from other causes and be called a covid death thus further inflating the numbers.

RE: Florida Plates; How to Prove We haven't Been There Lately.

It's your Florida that is "checking papers" of those entering the state.

RE: Selecting a roof coating brand

Here in the desert southwest we apply rubberized roof coatings to the flat roofs of our homes. Trailer roofs are also made of rubber. Many here have used their home's roof coating on their trailers with success. I don't know if you have any of that available at your Home Depot but it seems to work well.

RE: Is camping Fun Anymore

Got me to thinking back to the old days when we and another family or two would use our boats to get to the other side of the lake to tent camp. Invariably there were others camped nearby with the same idea who insisted on partying way into the night. Apparently it's more than just an RV issue, it's a disrespectful people issue.

RE: Poll: How many 1T TC haulers have no modifications?

It's not a TC but my 5th wheel puts 3500 (scaled) pounds on the rear axle - similar to a TC. No mods needed.

RE: Backing that trailer into a tight campsite..

I'm very spoiled. I work for an RV dealer and set up the monthly shows at the fairgrounds. I'll park around 80 trailers of all sizes in a couple of days. When I'm done they're all perfectly aligned and look great, if I may brag. But I use a fork lift. Having a 40 foot triple-axle on the end of the forks is nothing. But let me try to back up my own 40' triple-axle with my long bed truck into a campsite and it can be quite difficult. What I'm used to doing with my forklift I can't do as well with my truck and it can be embarrassing. So don't feel bad if you're having difficulties.

RE: Travel to/thru Texas

I laugh when I see people driving alone in their cars and wearing a mask. Why? We are forced to wear masks in Tucson and the surrounding county, which is a good idea except the masks don't stop the covid bug. The packages of masks for sale at Costco say they don't stop a virus. But lets all wear our masks for that feel good effect. It's better if we all get exposed to the virus and get immune to it. It's called herd immunity and it works. We're all going to eventually be exposed to the virus. Some are going to die, some are going to get hospitalized, but the vast majority are going to get sick and come out of it just fine. My bottom line is wife and I aren't worried about traveling. We are heading to Branson on Monday and we aren't worried about the trip. We can take care of ourselves, wash our hands, were a mask, etc.

RE: Most dont sanitize water heater?

If I leave water in my water heater too long I can get a rotten eggs smell from it. A flush and a fresh anode fix the problem. Now when I'm going to be home for a while I empty the hot water tank and let the AZ heat and dryness take care of any bacteria.

RE: Well built, new Travel Trailer Suggestions

Can't say I've seen a bumper-pull in the length you want. You might want a 5th wheel instead.

RE: Covers. Who uses them? Who doesn't?

Every cover I've ever used has fallen apart in less than a year (AZ sun and wind). At $400 or so per cover I don't use them any more.

RE: I-95 checkpoint entering Florida???

From "The executive orders issued by Gov. Ron DeSantis that require travelers from areas with substantial community spread of the virus, including the New York, New Jersey and Connecticut tri-state area, to quarantine for 14 days, or for the duration of their presence in the state, whichever is shorter, are still in effect. Airport screenings and roadside checkpoints are set up to check for potential COVID-19 cases."

RE: Do most parks check/copy your ID? (Victims of ID theft)

Using a Debit Card or writing a Check uses your money out of your bank account. A Credit Card uses the Bank's money, not your money. If your Debit Card, Check, or Credit Card gets compromised a wise person would it to be the bank's money stolen.

RE: Climbing steep grades...

Have you weighed your Class C and Jeep? Are you sure you're not over weight?

RE: Border closure extended

I assume you're talking about the USA cops who are being physically attacked and murdered, their police departments being overrun and burned down, some in jail for just doing their jobs or those cops who are leaving the profession in droves? Do you really want them to drop everything and pick up illegal Canadians? The cops don't really give a **** any more. Glad I did my 30 years before all this mess started.

RE: Dead batteries again

Clicks means a low/bad battery. Did you try a jump start or hooking up a charger to the engine battery?

RE: Albuquerque to Heron Lake SP

Middle of nowhere - isn't that what most people are looking for.

RE: Ouray, CO to Fort Collins, CO

If you're truck can't handle the mountain driving, stay on the interstates.
