RE: Retirement

Anybody retire at 62? Might as well in order to at least get some social security before it runs out of money. my wife and i both went at 55 (we’re soon to be 71 and 70). no regrets.

RE: Travel buddies

whey my BIL was temporarily transfered to Britain he wanted to take his cat until he learned that his cat would be in a 6-month quarantine. now that was years ago but the point is to check the laws in Sud Africa.

RE: To portable dump tank or not to portable dump tank...

I'm too cheap to spend $20 a week (seen prices much higher than that). I don't find the tank dumping to be that much of an inconvenience. i agree with Steve. as far as i'm concerned "that much of an inconvenience" means it's worth the $ to lay that job off on someome else.

RE: Wife like the dark

RE: Your opinion on a tax return question...

i would play the game. if you do as you asked the federal and state worker bees will become confused and disoriented which extend the time needed to get your refunds.

RE: Volunteer camphost needed

the last time we looked into hosting...and it was a while...illinois considered the "free" campsite as taxable income. best to check.

RE: Operating BlueOx Tru Center

I found I neeeded to slightly "over correct" to get the blang thing to center properly. Also they tell you DO NOT PRESS BUTTON WHILE IN MOTION... huh? if you can't adjust it in motion then what's the point?

Operating BlueOx Tru Center

a different post about the BlueOx TruCenter reminded me that I had intended to post this last year but it completely slipped my mind. I've had the TruCenter for a while now but I'm not sure that it's working, maybe I'm doing something wrong or maybe my expectations are too high. this is what i was told by BlueOx, turn the wheel in the desired direction, press and hold the TruCenter button until you no longer need pressure to keep the vehicle crabbed into the wind. seems simple enought but easing of the steering wheel pressure never seems to happen to a point where a light hand on the wheel is needed. the tech at BlueOx said not to press the TruCenter button for more than 10-seconds. i have had the system checked by a qualified service center which pronounced it in working condition. they echoed the instructions i got from Blue Ox. is this the right way to use it? does it disengage when on a curve

RE: Toad on Trailer vs 4 Down

Use the trailer. No rolling around in the dirt, mud, gravel, grease etc. disconnecting drive shaft. given those options...use the trailer but only if you can safely tow the combined weight of the trailer and vehicle. what is the combined weight of the trailer/vehicle? how much can the Class B rated to tow? what is the GCWR of the Class B?

RE: What Size Telescoping Ladder

me? i'd want a ladder the extended at least a foot above the roof line. and remember, your ladder will be resting at an angle against youf TT meaning the ladder will need to be longer than 10' to begin with so it will be even with the roof.

RE: Test charging stop for large EV’s, busses, trucks, mohos.

we won't consider an electric vehicle much less a MH until two things occur: a full re-charge takes the same amount of time it takes to refuel now...about 10-min for a 4-wheeler and maybe 20-min for the MH.What if the electric fuel was half the cost as gas/diesel? What if the cost was 1/4? i don't see out-of-pocket cost as important as compared to convenience. Well, a lot of people line up at Costco for 40 minutes to save 10 cents on gas, so I think it’s important to some. no doubt but your question was directed at me. at least that's how i took it. Charging at home is a lot cheaper than fast charging. But trucks won’t have that option. I’m not sure how the economics of that will work out. same here. we store our MH in an outdoor lot. when we bring it home to pack/unpack I connect to a 50-amp post. not sure what it would take to convert that to or add a charging port. since we're not likely to buy an electric MH anytime soon i'm not concerned with what would be needed.

RE: Help with Forest River

All this for a $10 piece of glass? WOW! i get it. there is a principle involved.

RE: Help with Forest River

Update: After my call to the dealer to have my extended warranty canceled the glass was somehow no longer an issue to get. All is resolved. Thanks everyone for the help congrats!

RE: Test charging stop for large EV’s, busses, trucks, mohos.

.......... If this place saves on petro chemical fuels, where does the energy come from that generates the power to do the charging? People tend to ignore the fact that it takes a lot of energy to move oil across country to refineries, refine that oil into gasoline and diesel, and then deliver it nation wide to service stations. All of that also requires fossil fuels to get that fuel to us so we can burn it. :S which is why pipelines are more efficient. we won't consider an electric vehicle much less a MH until two things occur: a full re-charge takes the same amount of time it takes to refuel now...about 10-min for a 4-wheeler and maybe 20-min for the MH. the range between charging is roughly the same as what we're seeing now...about 150-mi for the cars and 300-350 in the MH. and of course the charging stations need to be where we are. American ingenuity being what it is i 'spose those conditions might occur before my wife and i leave this Earth but it'll be a race.

RE: Help with Forest River

Look I am no newbie to this. I have been camping my entire life and delt with warranty issues in the past. The squeaky wheel always gets the oil. The lower level warranty personal you talk to do everything they can to get you to give up. Im NOT that guy lol. I will take this as far as I have to to get results. 1st they denied my claim for a small piece of cabinet glass that was cracked in transit on our very first trip. That $20 piece of glass will end up costing them a new sale or two when my youtube video comes out about it. 100% right. i did precisely the same thing back in '18. we had accumulated 20+ issues with our new MH (see signature) in 18-mos. post-warranty. our dealer was super getting us in, fixed and out. but we'd had enough. i sent letters detailing the issues to the president, CEO and the VP's that had oversight of the motorhome division of Winnebago as well as to our dealer as i didn't want him to be blindsided. a few weeks later I got a call from a lower level suit at Winnebago with an offer of assistance for the current repairs even though we were out of warranty. it was more than I expected (which was nothing) but getting anything was good. good luck.
