RE: Questions on using a Dutch Oven

I wonder, instead of a parchment paper or foil liner, could the Reynolds cooking bags (like for turkeys) be used as a liner? A meal in a bag...

RE: What does having an appointment mean?

Hmmm. Let me guess. Is this a Camping World rv center?

RE: coronavirus...put it into perspective

A proper calculation of mortality rate is: total dead divided by total population.That's one way. Another is to compare the dead to those infected, and that's where the numbers go way up. I'm sorry, but this is simply a fallacy put over on the public by the media so they can throw out higher, more scary stats. Here's proof. From Wikipedia: "Mortality rate, or death rate, is a measure of the number of deaths (in general, or due to a specific cause) in a particular population, scaled to the size of that population, per unit of time." From "The mortality rate is calculated by taking all the deaths that occurred during a particular time period and dividing that number by the total size of the population during the same time frame." From Encyclopedia Britannica: "mortality rate is calculated by dividing the number of deaths by the population at risk during a certain time frame." There, I've listed 4 good references which show the proper way to figure it, as it has been accepted scientifically and mathematically for many years. If we cannot stick to known facts but re-define facts on the fly to suit ourselves (as the MSM has done), we cannot communicate accurately. The media re-defines "mortality rate" and other terms on a frequent basis, so they can move the goalposts and frighten people into doing what is desired.

RE: coronavirus...put it into perspective

A proper calculation of mortality rate is: total dead divided by total population. The outbreak hit Germany and France a bit earlier than Italy. Germany's mortality rate is 93 divided by 83,000,000, or 0.0001% so far. France's mortality rate so far is 562 divided by 65,000,000 = 0.00086%. China's rate (if it can be believed) is similarly low. (For reference, influenza mortality is typically in the 0.1% range.) Of all the countries, Italy is the statistical outlier. Despite being later to the illness than China, S. Korea, Germany, and France, Italy's most recent mortality number is 5,476 out of 60,000,000 people, which still is only a rate of 0.009%. Even though less than 1 in 10,000 has reportedly died from Covid-19 in Italy, the nation hardest hit by this virus so far, the MSM has continued to trot out a "two to three percent death rate" claim. Worse still, they love to use a sensationalized death rate, incorrectly calculated: total deaths divided by number diagnosed with the illness, instead of dividing by total population. Thus they claim false numbers like 10% or 12% death rates. A herd of cattle will stampede over a minor thing; one loud noise or even a single spooked steer can start the herd on a mad, blind dash. Are we any better than a herd of cattle?

RE: Tire recall

I should have known my tires wouldn't be on the recall list. They, like my wife, don't recall a thing I tell them..... ;)

RE: Flatulence causing CO/Propane detector alarm?

Yes, those devices are adept at detecting gaseous anomalies. ;) My previous TT's smoke detector would go off any time I stepped out of the shower. Darn things are just too sensitive, if you ask me.

RE: New rv's

I'm with all of you; I like the traditional wood colors. Not gray, not white. I like that "log cabin in the woods" feel, I guess.

RE: coronavirus...put it into perspective

China seems to be on the downhill side of this outbreak. They say the incidence of new cases as well as the incidence of deaths in China have both declined for the past month. China's population is 1.435 Billion. Total deaths attributed to this virus, as of now, stands at 3,255. If my math is correct, that's a mortality rate of 0.00022% of the population in the nation that was the origin and epicenter of the disease. (Mortality rates are supposed to be calculated versus total population, but many news sources are figuring death number versus number diagnosed with the disease, a misleading statistic if it's called "mortality rate.")

RE: Is a tandem axle cargo trailer worth the extra $ over single

It's possible to order brakes on a single axle trailer, usually. In my experience (towing a cargo trailer 15k-20k miles per year for 2 decades, plus travel trailer towing) my tandems' rear tires would pick up nails 4 or 5 times a year, whereas the single axles might find a nail once a year. I think the front tire runs over the flat nail, kicks it point-up, and it stabs the back tire. I had a couple of tires get destroyed because they lost air and I didn't catch it in time (now I run TST TPMS on my single axle's tires, though I haven't had an issue with a trailer tire pressure suddenly falling for about 2 years!). The only way I'd get a tandem is if I simply had to have the extra weight carrying capacity. The single axles have towed straight and true (proper forward-biased loading is important with any trailer) and I never have any sway. No tire scrub when backing tight turns, either.

RE: Anyone else camp in an A-frame?

I bought a 5 year old Aliner and kept it for one summer. One big negative for me was having to bend down for every item in storage; after having upper cupboards, it's hard to go back to no upper storage. I do hope you enjoy yours, though.

rv door lock assembly - best quality brand to buy?

I'm looking to replace the door lock assembly on my cargo trailer. I am in and out of this door 100 times per week, making deliveries to customers. What's the most reliable brand out there? Is there any consensus on the forum?

RE: I want something different!

Get creative. Invent something. I wanted to try something new on my last camping trip. Bought a bag each of lentils, brown rice and split peas. Tossed some from each bag in a kettle, added a little garlic and ham base and sprinkled in some herb mix (Penzey's Mural of Flavor). Turned out so tasty, I make it for myself every couple of weeks.

RE: Toyota Highlander and 26' Trailer

I would never tow a 26' TT with that short a wheelbase. Even with an anti sway hitch.

RE: No more GM diesels?!

If they get too far ahead of the curve, they run the risk of missing it. Like land speculators who guessed where the railroad would be built.

That is your mood light setting. It imitates the flickering light of a fireplace or campfire. Congratulations on having this premium feature in your RV! ;)

RE: Stopped to help fellow camper

. . . So much for brand new Chinese will-pop tires. They should be outlawed. What really caused the blow out (or tread separation) cannot be determined by the information given without seeing the tire. We had a "blow out" which turned out to be a tread separation caused by tires that were way too old to be driving on - did about the same damage to our rig which was all completely covered by the comprehensive plan on our insurance. Even damage to the tire in proximaty was paid for, but not the offending tire. What did we learn? To inspect the tires annually, yes alignment affects their wear and account for that, and stay within ST tire speed limits.Your post reminded me of the time my pickup's rear tire blew and took out the fuel filler pipe. My insurance company insisted that my tire collided with my truck, therefore the higher collision deductible applied (not comp). :R As one may guess, I changed insurance companies soon afterward. OP, this was a great assist, helping the lady like that. We need more people like you out on the road!
