RE: My wife is gonna kill me, please help

I’m sorry that your wife is going to kill you ;). I can’t help because that would be illegal, but I know someone she can call for help :B Millions of other wives?

RE: Recommendation for Tow Bar Setups

You might as well buy direct from the manufacture and save some coin.

RE: Does Consumer Cellular include a hot spot?

My only complaint with CC is that lot of the time text messages are slow, real slow. 15 minuets or so slow. Just the other day I got a message "Your message to Wife failed to send. Sent 74 days ago." Or another one that was 363 days ago. Gee, ya think I figured it out 362 days ago? Oh, yeah you got to call them to get the hotspot turned on. I think you need to call from a different phone than the one you want it turned on as they will have you reboot the other one to see if it took.

RE: Redwoods...Ave of the Giants and Newton Drury Pkwy

Just be aware that there will be some tight spots. Plenty of trees show the scars of those that have mis-judged their width.

RE: Route from Blue River,Or to Caldwell,Id.

That is the way I'd go. Been years since I was on 20 east of Bend, but was decent road then.

RE: Better fire extinguisher than the Kidde replacement?

I thought Mac the Fire Guy passed. I know that he had some heart problems several years ago.

RE: "Use Both Lanes Until Merge Point"

I'm a traffic engineer who sets up maintenance of traffic plans as part of my work. It depends. Under light traffic conditions where traffic is continuing to move smoothly, merge as soon as you get the chance and don't try to fly past everyone. Doing so and then forcing a merge at the last second causes additional congestion, delay and crashes. Where the signs are used, is typically where traffic is heavy and significant backups are expected. If traffic backs up too far, it can block off up stream ramps causing more problems. In that case, lining up in both lanes reduces the overall queue length and the associated issues. It's essentially the lessor of two evils. Playing traffic cop is rarely a good idea but playing speed racer also isn't a good idea. PS: The contractor (construction companies) are typically not the ones laying out the plan. They implement what is in the contract. I am not disputing on what you are saying but will any of us live long enough to see anyone learn to zipper? Now can you explain how the @#$%^ traffic circles are suppose to be so great?

RE: 2022 Tiffin - F-53 Chassis - Brakes

It is a 2016 Canyon Star 3911 handicap equipped. Dealer said it was not disc brakes. I have not crawled under to see. Sure does not stop like discs Wouldn't be the first time the dealer didn't know what they were talking about.

RE: 2022 Tiffin - F-53 Chassis - Brakes

The Ford Chassis Newmar we have now is the first after 2 diesel rigs. I thought exactly the same thing when we drove out of the dealer's lot in Knoxville. By the time we had gotten back home I was more used to the brakes and also said, "disc brakes would make me feel better". They still would! We seldom get into the steep roads like we did with the diesels so I guess this will be the last MH we will ever own. Keep safe and enjoy the road life Hmm, Just how old is your F53? They have had 4-wheel disks for years.

RE: Astoria,OR to Florence OR

The worst part of the route is south of Yachats over Heceta Head. The road is windy and narrow for 15 (?) miles but doable. Watch for bicycles as they will always appear in the worst spot. Don't panic at the tunnel! The low clearance is at the shoulder, just maintain your your lane position and you will be fine. If you need fuel Fred Meyer Fuel in Newport is the price setter, has a new station with great access and exit. Right side, near McD's. Also Fred's in Florence. Tight but doable with care. You didn't ask but 101 is a good ride into your home state. You said I-5 was preferred. I would cut over at Reedsport on OR 38 and 138 but there is options.

RE: Long Beach, WA to Spokane

I avoid freeways like the plague. This is the way I would go. White Pass is very doable. WA 24 & 26 are good roads and basically flat and US 395 is all four lane now up to I-90. Plus is that you miss pulling the grade out of Vantage. Used to run Portland-Yakimia-Spokane and from Yakima that was the route we took.,+WA/Spokane,+WA/@47.284874,-117.7064745,9.87z/data=!4m24!4m23!1m15!1m1!1s0x54930d412550d6c9:0x8d06ff04da86900!2m2!1d-124.0543234!2d46.3523219!3m4!1m2!1d-121.5405462!2d46.8675459!3s0x5490cba160e05085:0x212c1d70751c219f!3m4!1m2!1d-119.6894794!2d46.6661755!3s0x549852eaa81c597d:0x18f0f873b6b8c161!1m5!1m1!1s0x549e185c30bbe7e5:0xddfcc9d60b84d9b1!2m2!1d-117.4260465!2d47.6587802!3e0 If you go Portland you aren't missing any grades as you need to make the pull over Horse Haven on I-82 between Umitilla and Kennewick.

RE: 26 through Portland

Generally speaking they don't want an vehicles with amounts of HazMat that require placards. I used to work for an LTL company and their rule was any Hazmat on board not to use tunnel. You will be okay. But yet they allow them over Cornelius Pass Road. Can't fix stupid.

RE: how to make a Towed Car Protection Shield

The user mshappycamper hangs out in a different forum. You might search his handle and you can figure out which one. Then join and send him a PM or post your question there. Or spend the $250 for a Protect-A_Tow. They do work well. FWIW they are made with a a PVC coated polyester mesh that is rip stop. That is from the manufacture. It is a trapezoid shape with the base of about 90" wide and a top about 48" inches wide. The height is about 56" finish size.

RE: Tire Pressure Monitoring System seem to be the most popular. I went with the EEZ a few years ago. IMO don't go cheap. Like a certain tire manufacture says Your life is riding on your tires.

RE: Safety issue in handicapped bathrooms

OP, is this where you live, or you asking about semi-public location? I bought a pack of jersey gloves that had plastic palm, thumb, and front of fingers. When I got them I thought would keep hand dry when handling wet chains. Did not work for that but wife still uses to open jars. (make sure big enough to put on wet hands) Wet chains never bothered me. It was the cold and wet that did me in. LOL. The only solution I found was to retire.
