RE: Your total length, truck and trailer

You measure from the back bumper of the trailer to the pin, than add the distance from the truck rear axle to the front bumper. My trailer is 38 ft total rig s 55.

RE: 75 Speed Limit - How Fast

After 20 years of towing heavy, I've found my truck was designed to tow at 60mph. At 60 the engine is happy, the transmission is happy, the tires are happy and I'm happy. If you think I'm a danger, get your eyes and your brakes checked cause more often than not, I'm behind someone else doing the same thing.

RE: Construction adhesive vs. wood glue

Building cabinets, no, wrong product. It's great though for sticking things to the wall where the drywall taping is anything but smooth, flat and square.

RE: Free-for all Lahontan Reservoir Camping

We stayed there the middle of October last year, had the whole beach to ourselves, It was a nice stop, will do again this year on our way south. How cold? Thought this is flat lands, but notice the many thousand feet it's above sea level. high desert, as I recall it was cool and mild.

RE: Adding on board Generator

I did the same exercise a few years ago, spent a lot of time working on the various details and came to some conclusions. Propane was not efficient enough, diesel was too heavy, a 5500 Onan plus fuel tank, sheet metal, plumbing and electrical put me at about 6k and a lot of time. So, I ran a cable from the shore power connection to the front and installed another shore power plug next to the front storage door. I built a weather proof enclosure and installed a Honda 6500 with a remote start in the bed of the truck with a 20gal remote tank, a 15' cord makes the connection and can stay connected full time if your lazy (don't know about running it while driving, never tried.) I've got about 800hrs on it and it works flawlessly rain or shine and I have plenty of power to run whatever whenever, no vibration no noise.

RE: ?ampers are on the road

It's not a question of how many people are going to die from this virus, millions will by the time it runs its course. The question is who...choice is yours.

RE: Chinese Versus TAIWAN Hand Tools

Back in the early 70s while working at a gas station, the Proto tool truck drove in. I bought the full rollaway, the works. Five years of payments and fifty years later I still have every one... I did wear out a 1/2" deep wall socket though.

RE: I5 Bakersfield to Redding

I don't know where you are going on the Oregon coast. Having done all the routes to Brookings at the south end of the Oregon coast, and guessing you want to see the entire Oregon coast; also not knowing what equipment/experience you have; personally I would take I5 to W/B US 299 in Oregon and take US 101 North along the Oregon coast. The downside of that is you miss the northern California coast/Redwoods NP, but with the exception of an about 20 mile stretch of 299 in California it is an easier drive. My opinion. It would appear that the 5 would be the way to go, We have a stop in Chico to visit a friend. I’m thinking the 299 w would be my best bet off the 5, the pass from Redding to Medford could be iffy and we will be slowing down to hang around in the redwoods. We don’t have any solid plans until the middle of May on the central coast.

I5 Bakersfield to Redding

Will be driving up the valley to the Oregon coast in a few weeks and was wondering which was the better road surface, the 5 or the 99 ?

RE: BMW vs KTM vs Triumph vs Honda Adventure motorcycle

I have a friend that I’ve rode with for going on 40 years, he’s been riding a Honda XR650 since they first came out . Road or trail, he’s hard to keep up with and....reliable as it gets. If I was doing a long duel sport ride,I’d get the XR with a custom Russell Mayer seat and have at it...
