RE: Olympics......

OK... so I heard about an amazing interview with an athlete who won gold today. The enthusiasm and pride in not only the accomplished but moreover, pride in representing the country. It is something that if it was more evident in the competitions then perhaps I might watch the events. I received it from a friend who said that "straight interview" versions are being censored by the IOCC and NBC and a video of the interview only is not available. Well, I guess that is kinda' true because in searching for it I could not find a straight version. I have only found YooToobers putting together versions on their respective platforms. I am posting the following not for a political statement of any kind whatsoever. But I cannot find a version of the victor in the interview sans any editorials. I am posting it to show the jubilation, the pride and accomplishment. Mod, I am willing to bet you might delete this or edit it, but I tried my best to find an interview video only. You are only allowed to watch the first 55 seconds: US Olympian Wins Gold, Goes Viral For Inspiring Patriotic Interview The enthusiasm of this athlete makes me smile :)

RE: Another noobie question.

When I plug into 110v it automatically switched from LP to 110 but I can manually switch it back to LP. Mine did the same.

RE: Glenwood Canyon I-70 mudslides....!

I am somewhat familiar with the Canyon having driven it several dozens of times... and while I agree it is a Gubmint job, me thinks they need to really asses the conditions. A majority of the two lanes each direction have no shoulder. Kinda' tough to have a dump truck and another implement in there to do what most might think would be a more efficient way of doing clean up. I am guessing they are trying to get at least a lane open on each side so that assessment crews can get in to determine the damage to the infrastructure. Clearing the debris is one thing, but there will need to be repairs performed and from what I am hearing it will be several weeks before open to traffic. I spent some time last night watching the many videos posted and associated it on the googly earth. From what I can tell, this is not one slide. There seems to be 2 or 3 major areas crossing the interstate and at least 2 locations where it is over the railroad. I watched THIS VIDEO last night which was released by CDOT. It takes the viewer up to the higher points from which soil came. Pretty amazing the potential energy that flowed down!

RE: The View

People do see what they want to see... and I choose to not View. ...but if I did, my opinion is that I would want to see 40-45% of the Abbey Huntsman scenery and the other 55-60% of Elizabeth Hasselbeck... either way, that is 100% pretty good scenery. FYI as a CYA, I did not have a TV in my TC nor a TV pulling my TC, is that OK? LMKWYT, LOL.

RE: Notify Moderator feature not working...?

Thanks for the confirmation. Not many times that I reach out to a Mod but have noticed the interruption the few time I have tried. Yes, PM feature worked.

RE: Another noobie question.

People will do what people do. When I had my TC's, I would fill the diesel (all components and appliances off) a day or two before heading out. Then at home, I would pre-cool the fridge on shore AC and pre-heat the water heater. When I was ready to travel, I would shut down the water heater for travel as it seems to retain the heat pretty well. Depending on time of distance travel, I would generally not turn on the fridge while traveling. It seemed to keep stuff cold for a 3-4 hour travel if not opening the fridge door. Sometimes I would travel with LP fridge going but ALWAYS turned it off before approaching the pumps. The water heater and fridge were right close to the fuel door and for the sake of safety, the extra 20 minutes or so to LP down and then LP up was not too much a price to pay for taking prudent precautions.

RE: Glenwood Canyon I-70 mudslides....!

Yes, the actual "mud" begins at about the 2:30 mark. Prior to that, images show the exit ramp barrier and at about 1:00 begins the flyover showing the scarred chute of where the fire affected this latest hazard.

Glenwood Canyon I-70 mudslides....!

Most travelers I reckon have the internet technologies to check and keep abreast of road conditions. And, as may might know, I-70 Colorado in Glenwood Canyon is having some mudslide issues. It's gonna' be some time before they get it opened again... This VIDEO from the over the weekend gives and indication of the cleanup required.

RE: Resealing a vent from the top vs R&R

If it were me, I would remove, inspect and reseal. If you have a leak on a camper in which you do not know the history then it may also be that you do not know what is going under the roof components. If you had a leak at one time (even if it is sealed now with whatever method) you still may have a ticking time bomb. What I mean is that depending on how much moisture got in, there could be potential for damage. I bought a 2 year old camper in brand new condition in 2010 and I religiously maintained as best I could. Yet still there was an instance where water unbeknownst to me got in somehow. I discovered it some 6 years later coming in the adjacent vent when doing maintenance around the shower bubble; I ended up replacing and sealing both using eterna-bond where I had to cut back some of the roof membrane, butyl tape and dicor: Before: After:

RE: With regard to carrying a TC, what does these #'s tell me?

With regard to carrying a TC, what does these #'s tell me? FRONT GAWR = 5200 lbs. REAR GAWR = 6100 lbs. When I was analyzing my TC/ truck I NEVER exceed either of those numbers. I was over my GVWR by about 1,400# and 75# over any known wheel weight rating (for steel factory rims) but never over tire load index. This was for a fully loaded camper with full water,LP, food, provisions and about 500# of other stuff in the truck (not part of normal camper compliment.) It was the most that I would ever carry and with minor suspension mods, the combo handled great. Should I weigh with full tank of diesel and the tailgate removed? Yes! And also add items that would be typical in/on the truck that is not part of the TC compliment such as passenger(s) etc...

RE: Colorado, I70 and 160 to 285 advice

Don't know when you are planning on travelling, but as noted, I-70 through Glenwood Canyon is a dicey proposition right now. Twice in the last few days it has been closed for over 24 hours. Keep an eye on the weather and if rain is forecast, plan on a different route. ... ^^-- Ditto that!
