RE: Solution to Trash Left Behind!

I found the most beautiful campsite that I go to every year twice a year. recently I've noted toilet paper scattered about. What a tacky thing to see in such a pretty spot along a stream with spawning trout and Kokanee Salmon. I think they should stop all people that do not have an RV with a bathroom and a way to haul it out. Makes me heart broken.

RE: Wiring issues...

A good volt meter can tell you which one should be the ground and which should be the positive wires. Everything running thru the fuses should be positive and the battery cables are easy to do the same way making sure they go to the correct lug on the convertor. If you have two batteries make sure they are paralleled correctly. Pos to Positive and negative to negative.

RE: Truck Camper vs Mustang ... not a great idea.

I wish I could go 5 or 7 over without others getting mad about it. What is the speed limit anyhow?

RE: Aftermarket wheels

Big wheels place more stress on the running gear. I would never trade away Alcoa wheels (strongest wheels made) for anything else. Do you know what it cost to replace those Alcoas? They are expensive. Also with bigger wheels will you need a small lift kit to make the room under the wheel well? Any lift will compromise steering comfort, alignment, ball joints, etc. I vote you stay with what you have and keep the speedometer accurate. What is the weight rating on the stock (Alcoa) wheels? The rating on the Vision wheels is 3750 lbs. I have stock suspension with no lift whatsoever. I still have the stock wheels with Falken tires mounted. Should I store them stacked or standing up? My Alcoas I think are rated for that same 3750 lbs. Mine are 16'' Alcoas so yours might be higher being they are 17''. Running larger diameter is harder on the transmission esp. hauling a camper. Trans temps can climb rapidly. Harder on the brakes going down. I cooked my brakes and both front bearings when the heat cooked all the grease out. It got expensive in a hurry. That was an unusual Mtn road probably dropped 5,000 ft. in just 7 miles.

RE: What to make of this......

Thanks for the responses. They are much appreciated. When I asked why she did that, thinking these dogs don't do anything like that without a command, she said, ''I did not know you were outside''. I wonder about this since she has been awkward to deal with and waited too long to call the dog off. You folks are my friends.... Thank you. BTW, the pay comes right along at payment times, no problem there.

What to make of this......

Me and my Subcontractors have working for a person that trains police dogs. This person has been unresponsive when it comes to communicating and has caused some degree of inconvenience until we get answers we need to continue. Yesterday one of the police dogs running lose went in attack mode, would not let me move until called off. Problem I have with this is that she stood and watched for what seemed the longest time before calling it off. What do I make of this everyone?.... I did not like being part of a training exercise. If I had a weak heart, it could have been a poor outcome. As it was I just stood my ground until it was called off. It was one hell of an aggressive animal in front of me. Thank you for any thoughts....

RE: Resealing Compartment hatches, what do I use?

You have to add screws to the compartment frames so that you can put the 'squeeze' on the butyl tape. It won't work without pressure from the screws. The foam tape leaked on my camper so all was removed and added countersink screws to the frames.

I look at things the way they are going and it increases my faith to see the stage being set for those things foretold many centuries ago.

RE: Scottsdale in winter.......

Thanks everyone, really great tips and also warnings od what not to do. I plan on going to Scottsdale right after the first of January depending on snow storms heading south out of Oregon. I usually never make reservations, but this is an ever changing world we live in. I don't mind winter travel either.

RE: Scottsdale in winter.......

She is in the Northern end of Scottsdale and has a WalMart nearby, but the freeway is right there with all it's sounds just waiting to ruin my sleep. I am from the quiet woods of oregon so it's going to be an experience I'm sure.

Scottsdale in winter.......

Can anyone tell me any tips and tricks to going to Scottsdale in winter? My mother turned 90 and must see her this winter. I'm wanting to know any nice RV parks close to Scottsdale, maybe fairly quiet, or even good places outside town. I don't like ritzy fancy just nice places with nice people. I just need space the size of a parking space with my truck camper, but will do what is easiest if quiet. Thank you so much for any help as it's going to be all new to me.

RE: Ally financial Bank Issues.... Anybody else experience this?

I waited almost a year for my title from B of A. Got my attorney to send a letter. It must have been a brilliant letter cause I got it very soon afterward and the lien release signature was scribbled very large all across the page like they were none too happy.

RE: Front Window Yes or No?

I have no way to see what's going on in front so I thought about a magnified sight tube they used to always put in residential entry doors.

RE: What is your long term Dicor plan?

Now this just my opinion not tossing tomatoes at anyone here, but I would rather see what I got for a problem not have tape covering it. not being able to see where a problem is, is important. If Dicor has a problem you can see it by close inspection usually. I suspect Eternabond tape would perform a lot better if the membrane tape portion was the EPDM rubber roof slitted into strips or tapelike form. Not a plastic or vinyl membrane tape.

RE: What is your long term Dicor plan?

I didn't apply the curled Eternabond it was an RV that came in that way for a new roof. When we applied the new roof we went with two coats of the roll on adhesive and worked well for bonding to the roof. Plastic shrinks in UV light and thus the curling. If you guys are having good results though, I think you should use it. I like the smoothing out working into the surface back and forth with the Dicor and straight line masking.

RE: What is your long term Dicor plan?

Thanks everyone! Regarding eternabond it's easy to get mixed reviews. Lots of online reviews of people having water work it's way under and it turns into a mess. IMO that statement about "LOTS OF ONLINE REVIEWS and WATER", is simply NOT TRUE. Unless it's improperly applied or the product is defective (Eternabond does have a shelf life of around 5 yrs), water simply will not work it's way under the tape. Larry I've witnessed it lifting. Yep actually curling up on the edges and then highway speeds make the curl catch wind and gradually pull loose enough exposing the damaged area underneath. It leaked. The plastic tape shrinks and curls then wind and suns heat does the rest.It turns to something I won't use.
