RE: Front Tire alignment failure

Spectrac is the best in the country. I have mine checked each year we return to Mesa. It's worth the drive to have them check it out. I bought my tires from Redburn.....Dennis I used to say that about Spectrac until I brought it to them in September for a thrust alignment & they didn't see the broken welds. We fixed that in my shop last week. I cured my "Radial Pull" this week. It pulled left so I swapped the steers then it pulled right. Swapped them again & it pulled left. Took it to Redburn & had them break down two drive tires and put them on the steers. Problem solved.

RE: Staunton Va to Elkins WV

That's not a road I have been on but there are some VERY steep up's and down's (8%+). If I could avoid that route I would. If it made no sense to avoid that route I would take it, but just plan to take it slow! Bill, I don't recall any hills that steep, nothing made any impression on me except the constant turning.

RE: Staunton Va to Elkins WV

I took 250 last summer on the way from Charlottesville to the Trans Allegheny Lunatic Asylum. Someone told me when I left that West Virginia roads were so twisty you could put your arm out the window and hit yourself on the back of your head. They weren't far off on that. Roads were OK, just narrow and twisty. I did it with a 45' coach dragging a pickup. The Asylum was worth the trip.

RE: Alternate keyboard for IiPone

How about using a blue tooth keypad. What pocket do you keep it in?

RE: Alternate keyboard for IiPone

Not available anymore, but Gboard and many others also do this There should be something similar for the iPhone I did download Gboard and got numbers but no punctuation. My son says he can't imagine why changing keyboards to add a $ sign is a problem but he is not a hunt-and-pecker and does not battle arthritis in his fingers. I aim my finger at a g and may get a g,h or f. This gets worse as years go by. My granddaughter talked me into changing to iPhone and I should not have listened. So far, I see several negative and no positive reasons for making the change. But, on the bright side, its got to get better. I'm in the same boat. It has a leak and is nearly swamped. I recently switched to iPhone 11 and iPad Pro 11". Apple fanboys will vigorously defend the product, I just wish there was a little commonality between apple and android. Both have good and bad. When you put another keyboard on it you have to agree to give total access of everything you type to the app developer.

RE: what glue for rubber to metal

I clean it with alcohol and apply a wipe on adhesive promoter and then apply Super Weatherstrip Adhesive (Black). It's all about the prep!

RE: Renting out your RV--Help

Hi all,I am an RV owner and freelance writer, and I am working on article about the pros and cons of renting out your RV. If you've ever rented your Class A or any previous motorhome you owned, I'd really appreciate hearing about your experience, good or bad. Thanks! I rented a Class C out for a summer in Alaska 35 years ago. I used an Anchorage rental business to handle the rental end with the agreement that I do all of the maintenance. They did not like that part as they made a lot of cash over-charging owners for maintenance. The renters there were mostly European. Overall it was a good experience; as with any rental there is damage which the renters always claim innocence. A common event was a couple renting it and as soon as they were out of sight they loaded a few more people in. More people = more wear & tear. I bought the unit at a bank auction, sold it a year later and did very well. The rental outfit ownership transferred to the son who demanded they do the maintenance. I would not do that.

RE: WIX oil filter for Onan genny?

Onan does not manufacture filters, they buy them from a filter manufacturer. Any brand will work, Wix, Donaldson, etc. Any preference to brand names is like the old Chevy Ford Dodge argument. I am currently using Wix from Fleet Filters but mainly due to the volume pricing.

RE: Sewer Pipe Question

Is it the same fatty substance that accumulates on those see through drain pipes and that lines the tank walls if not thoroughly flushed?

RE: Flipping Axle

If the trailer has shocks the mount will have to be re-positioned and a possibility the shock could be too short. The shock mount piece should be available at any trailer supply house.

RE: Mexico Medical

Thinking about going to Reynosa Mexico for cataract surgery, any comments? That's a procedure I would want to do as close to home as possible.

RE: Air brakes on Towed

Why not simply get the ReadyBrake/ReadyBrute?? Nothing to add, nothing to subtract. Just hook it and go. Easiest system there is and nothing hooked to the toad..I've had mine for 10 years.....Dennis Ready/Brute I am not a fan of surge brakes with an engine brake. Going down a hill the Ready Brake will be applying toad brakes constantly. They will be warm/hot on a long descent when I have not touched the service brakes. I stopped once after a downhill and checked, they were warm but not overly hot. I'm pretty sure you just agreed with me....:C

RE: Lukeville crossing

children sprayed something from a plastic bottle on our front bumper. When we got to the USA the K-9 barked at our front bumper. The assumption was the children were responsible. If so the US Border Patrol would have been inundated that day, you would not be the only ones. Perhaps that was the case though, who knows. I've crossed many borders and have wondered sometimes about the opportunity that could be taken by a smuggler using you and following you to retrieve whatever it was. Taking a camper across a border can be intimidating, it's hard to keep track of what may be prohibited items in the house you live in for many months. Each side of the border has a different list of prohibited items. If you normally travel with weapons, ammo etc. you may forget they are there. One empty shell casing can be a major problem. We were caught with a piece of uncooked Mexican sausage in the refrigerator. I have no idea how we missed that but it cost me several hundred bucks and the loss of my Global Entry and TSA Precheck.

RE: Seafood from mexico

"...............You are allowed to bring 50# of Mexican beef to the USA." Where did you get this info? I called the Agriculture agent in Lukeville at the border office. I also was secondary inspected by him later and asked if that was per person or per vehicle. He said per vehicle.

RE: Seafood from mexico

If you buy shrimp on the Malacon, be sure to take a weight with you. Their scales are a tad off and not in your favor. They usually have another scale under the counter. I carry a 1 Kg and a 0.5 Kg weight to check the scales. In the Malecon as soon as they see the weights they point me to the good scale! We prefer 3 Brothers by the harbor where the fishing boats put in. Their scale has been dead on every time I have checked it! Sonora beef is also excellent and actually has flavor! You are allowed to bring 50# of Mexican beef to the USA.

RE: Passports

The Mexican Military has been asking to see a passport when entering and departing at Lukeville whenever they inspect. It's hit & miss although I don't think they have missed us in a couple of years. Mexican Customs/Immigration isn't stopping us near as much as they used to but the Military checkpoint is just another 100 feet down the road.
