RE: Flat towing a Mini Cooper

Fiat 500. You can get the operators manual, on line, for any vehicle you are thinking of and read the section on Recreational Towing. There are other on-line resources out there for towed vehicle info, but I like the owner's manual. Depending on the car value (and warranty), violation of the towing recommendations of the manufacturere will likely void any warranty. I have also seen Minis in tow, some flat and some on dollies.

RE: A new forum PLEASE

There is a "PET" forum.

RE: Emergency escape thoughts...

Window punch tool will not break the front windshield, nor any other laminated glass window. It will crack the glass but not shatter it, like it does a one layer tempered glass window, such as side windows in autos. WE carry a four foot folding, lightweight aluminum step ladder inside the motorhome. Have done that since we experienced a faulty exit step and had to climb out and into the MH a few times. I suppose it would work to get to the "top" windows if the MH was on it's side.

Ways to Save on Fuel at Pilot Flying J

We have not found a Pilot or Flying J that allows scanning the goodsam membership card for the $.05 discount, yet. Are we missing something. We scan the card, displays says see the clerk, we go in and prepay (PIA). We have traveled accross the US twice in two years.

RE: Good Sam Trip Planner

They are waiting for everyone to bail out so they can not have it any longer. Gave up last year and moved to Garmin RV model w/Basecamp.

RE: Who really cares about what forum a thread is in?

I often see responses along the lines of "why did you post on this forum rather than that forum" or 'this belongs in "X" forum, or "you will get more responses posting in this forum instead" . Personally, I never check individual forums to see what is going on. I look at the "Active" search and occasionally the "Newest". Then I scroll thru to see if anything looks interesting. What forum it comes out of is meaningless to me. Do you "mix" all your silverware into one drawer? JK Do you ever search for info on this site? If you do, and limit the forums searched, you may find more of you are looking for. Organization of posts is important to the ways some of use this site.

RE: RV Weather Station

The Internet-based weather solutions aren't always an option . . . like my current screaming 40 - 60 kbps Canadian connection. Besides, I want to know conditions at ground zero. This, I don't like those online apps at all. Good for forcasts but not your current location. I know someone that uses the Davis Weatherlink and it is great.

GoodSam RA

Well, after reading all the negative comments here; I am going to give my experience from a year ago. GoodSam Roadside Assistance called at about 1PM on a Saturday because I had a rear inside tire blowout, I made it a mile to a rest area and called. Less than one hour later I was back on the road with my spare tire installed. Don't know that I could have done any better on my own if I had all the tools. Anyways, I know folks don't generally post their good experiences so I decided to. I'm sure there are circumstances where problems can occur. Good luck to all you folks out there.

RE: F-53 tires

We bought a 2010 F53 with original tires and took off on a 2k mile round trip. Had an inside dual blowout. No damage to the MH. Pulled into a nearby rest stop and called Roadside Assist. We had a spare on board and were back moving in less than an hour. Those miles were the last that set of tires saw. There was some minor cracking in the base of the tread grooves. If youk now the history, and upkeep (air pressure) of your tires from day one, (I DID NOT) I believe it can be a totally different deal. Close inspection and proper air pressure and I'm looking to get 10 yras. from my new Toyos.

RE: Using Propane while traveling in BC - Not Legal

I think I will just ignore that rule/law and take my chances.
