RE: Germs, viruses and fuel pump handles and doors

Fuel pump handles, perhaps are the worse for spreading germs and viruses ,maybe with door handles of businesses being first. Someone who has just finished shoveling out the barn or milking parlor, or has a cold or flu or a virus most usually does/may not wash their hands or use a sanitizer of disinfectant wipe before pumping fuel, or entering a store. We carry the little packages of disinfectant wipes but don't always think to wipe our hands...and the pump handle with them. We are changing that if we can find more wipes. I always use disposable nitrile gloves to pump diesel as 99% of the tiem they are oily with leaking diesel and you can wash all day and not get the diesel out of your hands except by wiping on the upholstery it seems sometimes. Maybe I need to sue them to pump gas too and even open doors of gas station. But for certain wee will wipe the pump handles with disinfectant wipes. Would be good if fuel stops haad them next to the pumps. Where is the data support your claim about fuel pump handles?

RE: Is Socializing a Dying Thing in the RV Community?

Was excited to get back into RVing in the last year as both the wife & I had done a lot of RVing in past lives going back a # of yrs. One of the things we were looking forward to was getting to meet new people along the way. So far in a 1/2 dozen trips or so back into it, with the exception of 1 trip we've only seen what I would call 'shut-ins'. Understand not everyone wants to chit-chat with strangers / some might prefer peace & quiet, but it's really been kind of a drag not running into neat / interesting people while camping. Never thought one would have to join a club in order to have some social interaction out on the road but I'm beginning to wonder if that's just the way it is nowadays.... Maybe they don't want to be bothered by people trying to chat them up.

RE: Upgraded my tow vehicle, do I still need a WDH?

You really don't understand the purpose of the WDH. A WDH has nothing to do with your truck and everything to do with the load carrying capacity of your receiver. Sound like you need to educate yourself on the subject, I suggest going to the manufacturer of your receiver and get the numbers. Then compare to the tongue weight of your trailer. Most likely you have the standard class III hitch; 5K lbs weight carrying and 10K lbs weight dist. Tongue weight is 500 lbs weight carrying and 1000 lbs weight dist.

RE: Dog Attack

In many cases where a dog attack occurs, the irresponsible owner is the problem. With this type owner, pet has no training, often times no vet care/vaccinations, and the owner, little income/assets. It leaves the injured party almost no recourse to recover losses. The attacking dog may be confiscated/put to death, but little comfort for the victim, be it your pet, child, or yourself. Sadly the irresponsible owner will eventually just get another dog. Jerry Yes surely it it couldn't be because certian breeds are bred and have instincs to kill.

RE: Campsite Sanitation - Beware

I really dont see the problem. If you hadn't seen it you would never know either. Doesn't mean it didn't happen. The problem could be: exposure to raw sewage could result in unwanted sickness or disease for the exposed individual. Just Google: Human exposure to untreated sewage. Or if you are a pet person and your Fido walks through the raw sewage and then walks through your RV and hops into bed beside you.....well might as well share a toilet seat with a stranger before the paperwork is completed. Think about it. Sanitation, like others have mentioned, is a good practice to add to one's routine. Lakeside Theres sanitation...then germaphobia. There is no way that anything was contaminated by a guy rinsing his hose. People (probably you) are way too quick to jump on someone who doesn't do things exactly the same as them. Doesn't mean a problem.

RE: Stopped to help fellow camper

I'll bet the RV dealer will (maybe) give her a new tire and nothing more. Insurance will cover the rest. So much for brand new Chinese will-pop tires. They should be outlawed. "She had a shredded tire on her new to her Rockwood A-frame. She had just installed new tires on the unit about 50 miles before heading out for a 2 week trip. According to her, the tire exploded" RV forums are great are they not, gotta love em. From the original post you came up with it was caused by a Chinese will-pop? You also were able to determine it was not caused by a curb strike, road hazard, overload, overspeed, low air pressure, or anything else? Awesome. Not only is the OP starved for internet pats on the back. This ones clairvoiant.

RE: Flashlight

Which led flashlight is perfect for camping. Something that is really bright and can see far. You can't pick out a flashlight without the help of a forum? Get the one you like and roll with it.

RE: Gas stations

Why are major gas station operators neglecting the huge market of RVers? Even new stations being built neglect to put in RV lanes that offer both diesel and gasoline. Last trip I pulled into 2 Love's and could not fit in either, had to maneuver around to get to an exit without being able to get gas. It seems that all the truck lanes only offer diesel. Pilot/Flying J are as bad or worse. I am 57 ft. long when attached to my TT and it is a challenge to say the least to find a station I can fit into and out of. It makes no sense to me the fueling companies would neglect this large portion of customers. RVers are NOT a huge your eyes.

RE: Was rear ended on the highway

If they hit your trailer at 82 mph like you said you would not even have a trailer. Being a Wounded Warrior is not germane to the situation. As a Vet myself I can appreciate your sacrifice but leave it out of the plea for help, it lessens your and other Vets service. If you have USAA like you said that is your contact...not here call your insurance company and let them you what you have paying them for.

RE: Camping with Dobermans

Rots, Pitsbulls, Dobermans and others have a bad rep for a reason. All dogs will attack in the right circumstances, some however are more prone to it than others. Dogs were bred for reasons, some for war and cannot take these insticts out of them. There are lists for a reason.

RE: *UPDATE* ST tires any better nowadays?

I'd still stay far away from anything made in china. I've been running LT's on my Voltage for the past 5 years and no issues. Where were those LTs made?

RE: No more issues with service.

No new posts since DEC? Guess you will just have to take you hating somewhere else. how do you know i'm hating? It's fairly obvious that you are fishing for posts that bad mouth CW service. and why do you fish posts when you have nothing to add and make derogatory comments toward someone who asks a question? Call them like I see them. It's ok you got caught that's all.
