RE: Route from Phoenix to Florida

I went from Los Angeles to Orlando all on I-10 but by passed Phoenix. Worst traffic I saw was El Paso and worst roads were in LA. 45 ft Monaco towing a 32ft enclosed trailer. That was last year and I am now 80 years old so if I can do it any one can. Safe travels.

RE: Lexington , KY to OBX, NC

That guy is confused--I-64 to Charleston, I-77 into NC, hit I-74 to Winston-Salem, hit I-40 East till you get around Raleigh and hit US-64 to the beach. Don't confuse I-64 with US-64....Forget google etc and look at a road map

RE: Check those prices

My water pump on my Mercedes failed. What a story. Anyway at Auto Zone it was $198. I got the the manufacturers name and googled it and got the exact same water pump for $40 delivered in 2 days. Water pump failed because of a small bolt caught in the impeller. I have owned this car since new and have no idea how that bolt got there, none.

RE: Hankook tires for DP

Not sure yet--only drove a short distance over a 2 lane country road. They aren't smooth I'll be right back up there

RE: Roadside Assistance

So much for sympathy. I also noticed none of the moderators jumped in to help. Service went south with the Allstate connection and Ol Marcus don't seem to be concerned.

RE: I hate roundabouts -- but maybe I am wrong

If my math is right 5000 per hour is about 83 a minute----sure would like to see that. Another near here has a back up all the time because one road is high volume and the other 2 are nothing. Thus a LONG back up most of the time.

RE: I hate roundabouts -- but maybe I am wrong

I hate them and see that most of those that like them are from the left coast. We have one in the middle of no where. 1 in 4 vehicles get lost in there. GPS just helps the confusion

RE: Campers helping campers

I have a 32ft enclosed trailer behind my DP. Used to be a 40ft now a 36ft. When I first moved here people would stop and watch me back in the driveway with, at first, 72ft and a 90 degree turn between trees. I could usually do it perfect first time after a lot of practice. I have many times backed someone else into their spot. I am also pretty handy and have fixed a lot of minor problems for my fellow campers. I had a medical problem in FL last year and was overwhelmed by the help I got from those I didn't know. Most people are willing to help if you need it, not just offer "eyes" so you learn!

RE: Hankook tires for DP

I had a flat rate price of $2500 that covered everything including tax--I'll take the cash every time. Cash talks!!!

RE: Bathroom access on the road

I had a DP with a bath and a half and with the slides in you couldn't get to either of them. Never again. My current one the bath room is right there even with the slides in.

RE: The importance of a TPMS Tire Pressure Monitoring System

I have 5 vehicles in that time frame and the only one that has TPMS is the Smart car. Anyway I check air before I leave and every time I stop. So far this has worked pretty well. I sometimes tow a trailer or a car dolly. Don't let your tires get of of date. I changed my DP yesterday, 2 were 2014 and 4 were 2015. Shame they age out but better safe than sorry.

RE: Hankook tires for DP

I could have got them a little cheaper on line but then the hassle of getting them mounted and balanced wasn't worth it. I can always sell the take offs around here but this time sold them where they were taken off---no hassle!

RE: Hankook tires for DP

Got the Hankooks today. All 6 for $2500 mounted, fronts spin balanced on the DP and rears on the machine, new valve stems also. I did better on selling my old ones as a guy was there with a low boy with same size tires and he gave me $125 each for my take offs. 2 were 2014 Daytons and 4 were 2015 Firestones. Ended up costing me $1750 out of pocket.

RE: Running the generator all night

I have ran my 7500 Onan 24/7 for as many as 6 days many times at the races. Don't seem to hurt them Last DP had over 7000 hours on it and still ran fine.

RE: Roadside Assistance

Only thing I ever used for was keys locked inside. It was Sunday and Coach Net had someone there in 30 min

RE: Stuck Caliper Piston

My F350 is sitting in the garage right now after a piston froze and ruined the whole mess. Got a new caliper and pads and something is not right as the wheel won't turn free. It was late so I'll figure it out tomorrow after I get back from getting new tires on my DP.

RE: Virginia GCWR rules / commercial / travel trailer

I once attended a meeting attended by state and federal regulators and the State police, dept of motor vehicles, and dept of transportation in regard to trailer length and weights of private vehicles. Also state politicians who legislate the regulations. You could not get the same answer from any 2 of them on anything. The ones that seemed to know the least were the ones from the scales and it looked like many made up rules as they went along.....My deal was length so I now keep a copy of the NC law in my motor home which makes it clear, at least here we are allowed 90ft. To many regulations!!!!

RE: 16% Road incline!

You can find them if you look but why? I thought interstates were limited as to how much incline they could have.
