RE: Gas stations

Most of the newer stations along the interstate are easy to get in and out of. Most cater to semi's as well and have wide drives and a multitude of pumps.

RE: F150 has joined the frenched in exhaust bandwagon?

I never understood rear exit exhaust on a pickup truck myself. Side exit only for me.I would think side exhaust would have less chance of carbon monoxide getting in and soot getting on the trailer. I don't know if it's even a issue.

RE: Is a travel trailer with a slide out a good idea for me?

I'll agree with that many people a slideout is a must-have. I'll disagree that there problem free. I've had two slideouts that had water intrusion issue. My only advice is to be diligent on maintenance. Both units had the aluminum strip at the bottom of the sides let water in. The vinyl had shrunk in the strip and let water pass by the screws into the floor. Both of these units were purchased used and could be attributed to lack of maintenance.

RE: Not looking for sympathy... just venting...

Crowe-I had a Aunt and Uncle in Sioux Lookout that past away in their 90's. Both their son and daughter passed in their 40's. Their grandson (same age as me) died in a motorcycle accident (hit a moose ). Their comment to me is it's not supposed to be that way you outliving your children. My brother-in-law's sister mom died. They called me to be a pallbearer at the funeral because her husband was not feeling well. Her husband passed 3 days after her mom's funeral. There are no promises in life and you need to live each day to the fullest.

RE: Not looking for sympathy... just venting...

I guess the other way to say what 4x4van said is: "when it's not your time it's not your time." I went off a curvey forest road at 60 mph on my bike last summer. When the bike left the road I left the bike smacking into a tree before hitting the ground. The impact was enough to cause my full face helmet to tear from my body and continue on into the forest. I found it with the strap still done up and my glasses still inside.... fortunately just the glasses inside, no head. After 20 minutes or so I was able to regain enough strength to get up and jump on the back of my buddy's bike to carry on. My leather jacket was safely stowed away in a saddle bag but unfortunately my favorite shirt was destroyed. Judging by the bruises on my body it looks as though I lined up pretty much perfectly with the tree. I was bruised all down one side from the top of my shoulder through to the knee. I still enjoy riding and often think "when it's not your time, it's not your time.All I can say is wow, your a very fortunate/lucky/blessed person.

RE: Renting out your RV nightmares.

I purchased another RV for friends and family to use. The people who I will selectively let use the RV will do so with the RV already set up and they understand how a RV functions. No way in hades I would let John Q Public use it, I know how people treat rentals.

RE: Dogs

Toadtoes-Reminds me of another past Collie Bud. At a rest area in Missouri there was a fence with horses in the pasture. Bud made friends with a horse and the ran up and down the fence together until it was time to go, Bud didn't want to leave.

RE: Dogs

We've also noticed how many people must always have dogs with them. It was especially annoying a couple years ago on Goat Island at the Falls. It seemed that everyone had a dog - sometimes 2. It was hard to stand at the overlooks without getting dogs and leashes tangled around our legs. Do dogs enjoy attractions like the Falls? Don't want them to miss out on the scenery. ;) My dogs love to smell new smells. I don't think they care about seeing the Falls, but they would love to smell everything on Goat Island. My parrot does love to see the scenery. He is very happy to see new places.Actually I had a Collie a decade back named Andy that loved seeing new places. He is the only Collie I've had to continuously look out the windshield and side windows on a trip.

RE: Gravel rv pad?

Pinesman the cost of 3 yards of concrete was only $300. I built the forms and friends helped when I poured the concrete. I had to build a stem wall on one side and did a monopour. Gravel would not have been much cheaper. I then ordered a Carolina Carport and had a level surface to install with solid anchor points.

RE: High mile gas engine trucks

104k miles on my lowly 5.4L F250. First truck I’ve owned in a long time that I’m not itching to trade off. I have had three 5.4l's . One 2 valve and 2 3 valve engines. Combined 500,000 on the three trucks and very few problems with them. A much better engine than the internet scholars would have you believe....My understanding is the 3 valve with the cam phaser requires clean oil for longevity. I have a 06 Ford 5.4 with the cam phasers. The other thing is keeping the coolant changed so the dissimilar metals don't start eating away. On FTE there are quite a few people with a lot of miles on the 5.4 engine.

RE: All Aluminum RVs

Colliehauler, I apologize if that sounded like a jab.Not taken that way at all. We need correct information.

RE: Stoped routine

My routine when stopped. Pull into a Cassie's, fill the truck, wash the windshield, use the restroom, grab a sandwich, pull away from the awning over to the grassy area, let the Collie pottie and do a walk around of the camper, load up and hit the highway. Repeat about 300 miles down the road.

RE: Any reverse snowbirds out there?

While not a Arizonan we still have oppressive heat of the summer time. I like to go to Northern Minnesota the summer.

RE: All Aluminum RVs

Colliehauler, that Air Hawaii jets cabin did not fail due to corrosion, it failed due to the use of triangular rivets which after years of pressurization/depressurization leads to cracks in the aluminum skin.Thanks for the clarification. I stand corrected.

RE: Gravel rv pad?

I've just always poured a concrete pad and was done with it. A person would only have to put in a couple of strips of concrete for the tires to cut down cost and put gravel in between for aesthetics.

RE: High mile gas engine trucks

You can check the forum of each brand. Usually they have a thread on how many miles do you have on a particular engine.
