RE: NH has closed all lodging facilities

Gov. Sununu has closed hotels, motels and B&Bs to try and stem the tide of out-of-state visitors coming to use the state's outdoor areas. The article does not mention of campgrounds are included but at this time of year not many are open. Your Governor has done what the Feds should have done. Smart man.

RE: Cruel Summer

Let's bail out the cruise ship and mega whatever industry.....to heck with those people working in the RV industry. Well, the RV industry weathered the storm alone before. Hopefully it happens again. My heart goes out to those guys.

RE: Intermittant A/C

My Dutchman Denali 5th Wheel has a Dometic Roof Air Unit Almost all of the time, it runs just fine. Every once in a while, it will shut off and restart at what sounds like a slower fan speed. Then after a minute or two it will shut off again and restart at normal fan speed. Its almost like the rig is getting a drop in power from the pedestal but I have no way of checking that. That's not good. It will eventually burn up your unit. Unplug the converter. This will allow the AC the full incoming power (your converter cycles as needed). Explain your reasoning behind this statement. The converter only pulls at max about 3 amps. If you unplug your converter, then your RV will go dead from the battery going dead after a few days. The Converter has NO BEARING on RV roof AC operation. Doug Three amps is three amps. If the guy has no means of checking the amperage, then this MIGHT help to see if it is a low amperage connection at the pedestal. Having that 3 amps of power just might put the power above what is needed for the AC. The fridge can run on propane while he checks this. You might try not being so pushy to all the people you reply to.

RE: Insurance

My insurance costs me $8.25/month. I'll keep it intact to insure against vandalism and fire.

RE: leaking sunroof

In the roofing section of Home Depot/Lowes you will find a roll of tape that will seal almost anything. It has a silver backing.

RE: Disc Brakes

Man! Those kits are expensive. I would love to put them on my fifthwheel, but at $1,300, I'll pass for now.

RE: How come?

Who knows if there will be any camping season at all. This just bites.And it's probably one of the safest activities there is. It's only safe if everyone abides by the rules. Remember, it only takes one person to infect 4,000 in a week.

RE: Laundromats are closed!!

Yep. That's just how crazy the country and local governments have gotten over what is going on. This government is FAR from being crazy over this. I'll bet the OWNER of the laundrymat decided he liked his family ALIVE and WELL. See....he's the guy that cleans and maintains the place he owns.

RE: What's Opened?

Here in Arkansas they tried to keep State Parks and hiking trails open, that lasted over one weekend. People were not practicing the six foot rule, crowding together in packs, and they shut all that down. Most city parks, playgrounds and groups of five or more are also forbidden. Walking around the yard is about all that's left. It's hard for some to understand that it's the few that makes these places have to shut down. We would all like to be able to get out there, allowing for the distance thing in the process. But.....that group of rowdies two sites over......well, you know the rest.

RE: What's Opened?

What is still opened? What is closed? I was in N Ga and April 3rd at 6pm they were closing down. I saw signs (posted prior) that the AT was closed. Why? no idea, this is the ultimate social distancing activity. The "Forest" was closed. Im not sure what that means. Many primitive campsites were posted closed with threats of $5,000 fines or a year in jail - for camping or parking in the middle of nowhere! The World has gone insane. The trails were closed, but the Governor said going out to exercise was allowed. Since when did we lose our freedoms? Like 911, this too shall never pass. If you see something opened, or closed, let us know the date and location. You lost your "freedom" when the rest of us decided we wanted to live. Staying in your home restricts the chances of spreading this virus, plain and simple.

RE: What manufacturers will this recession bring down?

Having owned my own my own business for over 30 years, I will never understand how someone can think they can run a business without a large cash reserve to cover things like this. In my estimation, larger companies (GM, Chrysler, Wells Fargo) should have removed every person in their upper management. They had no clue how to run a business. They were only in it for themselves. Okay, new small start-ups excluded, even smaller businesses should be prepared to have downturns. Maybe I was just lucky in 1990, 2001 and 2008? I weathered it without borrowing. Maybe it's because I was small enough to have a handle on useless workers? I don't know. I just think this NEW model of business isn't thinking far enough ahead. Microsoft, Apple, Facebook, Cisco and Humana will survive even if this catastrophe lasts months and months. Cash reserves are king in times like this.

RE: Want to drive through Mexico, looking for truck advice

It will be VERY hard to find a diesel truck with under 150,000 miles for less than $10,000. You can find plenty of gassers for that, with under 100,000 miles. Campers on mini-trucks do not preform well. Too top heavy and not enough power.

RE: Average monthly rates?

In Quartzsite Arizona, it's FREE. BLM land. 1,000's go there for the whole winter.

RE: Front Fender for 2000 Suncruiser

Ten years ago I lost a headlight and bucket from a 1995 Country Coach. Finding a replacement part was like finding a hens tooth. I hope you are luckier than I was. I ended up getting tractor light with high/low beams and mounting them on the bumper. I filled in the area where the old buckets were.

RE: Used tow vehicles

The boss said I can have a new truck. I am one of the guys looking at a $78k truck. I want to trade my stock 2008 Chevy 2500 for for a 2020 Chevy 3500 DRW. My truck is 2WD so that may hurt me. But I have only 60K miles on it and have no rust. It looks like I may have to wait until they start building trucks again if I can't find what I want on the dealer lot. Why would ANYONE trade their vehicle in? They only offer 1/2 of what you can sell if for on the open market. They won't offer you $25k for that truck.

RE: GM trucks outsell Ford first quarter !

It will be interesting to see what happens when the Zombie Apocalypse is over. Will people run out and buy new trucks/cars or, realize there are things more important than a new vehicle, like thousands of rolls of toilet paper? I was just having that conversation with the wife. Will this make younger people appreciate what they have and quit spending willy-nilly? Will this experiance weed out all the uneeded things everyone has been wasting money on? Will the "on the edge" businesses make it? Will helping your kids with schoolwork become the norm again?

RE: 25ft Toy Hauler Suggestions

Not many 25' toyhaulers to choose with super slides and private bedrooms with walk-around queen bed....which is what your wife will want once she sees one. That's what I would be shooting for....the floorplan.
