RE: Totaled vehicles...sometimes surprising.

I was in auto insurance salvage for thirty years .Today insurance companies are very afraid of the liability of turning a damaged auto back with a clean title . Fear of lawsuits are the reason . I was an auctioneer and worked for all the major salvage auctions. Also many companies may not have an adjuster in that vicinity so they hire a local contract adjuster, so the way that it is done here will have nothing to do with the way it is done there .Myself I have bought many salvage autos with good luck ,never had a problem . As said above insurance companies usually have a formula based on a percent of return .

RE: What do you shut off when leaving for a trip

I really never thought about shutting any thing off ! I am lucky if I remember to lock the door ! Shutting water off makes sense !

RE: Advance on Travel Trailer

You will quickly learn to back it , the fun starts when you switch to a longer or shorter trailer , you will have to learn all over again . And we all will be watchin !

RE: The difference between males and females

Maybe you should think about keeping her ! We have been married 49 years and the closest my wife came to a a cuss word was when we were living on sailboat and a large fan fell through the hatch a caused her to go to emergency room for 5 stitches. When the fan hit her she said , " sugar ".

RE: After one day, I am finished.....

RE: Converting a enclosed trailer to a RV TT

On web site " cheap RV living " there are many , many people that have done that , most for boondocking on BLM land in the west . Large flat roofs for solar , strong frames . If you buy new you can order with an RV side door , barn doors or drop ramp . I see that you are in Florida , there are several companies in Fitzgerald ,Georgia that make some nice ones , Google Fitzgerald Ga trailer sales and step back , there will many !

RE: Biggish dog in pick up truck?

Leave the kids with grandma , take the dog , less trouble . The boys would probably like the dog in the seat with them .

RE: New camper coming has nitrogen filled tires

The real problem with putting nitrogen in tires or anything is it unbalances the rest of the environment . Some times when I take a breath the ratio of oxy to nitrogen is out of balance and I think I have caught Covid 19 or the plague or sumptin . Please mark your vehicle that is got nitrogen and I will social distance . Seventy years ago I could run several miles and not get out of breath, now I get out of breath pushing the button on my lift chair . And it is all yus guys stealing nitrogen outta my air .

covid gettin close ! (Personal Experiences)

Two members of family have died from covid 19 . One I had not seen for 10 years , the other we saw once or twice a year ! I will be a pall bearer Tuesday , wearing a mask and maybe gloves !

RE: New camper coming has nitrogen filled tires

Think about it , it would be near impossible to purge a tire on a rim , could not be done even with a vacumn pump .So your empty tire is sitting there 100 per cent full of air , then they add a little nitrogen to bring it up to pressure . And then charge you or not !

RE: Diesel Towing MPG With Ultralight Trailer

My neighbor yesterday was telling me how foolish it was to drive a diesel truck as we were riding down so he could buy a $ 400 ice chest . I guess we all just need to do what feels good !

RE: Diesel Towing MPG With Ultralight Trailer

A lot of the extra cost to buy a diesel will be recouped when you sell or trade . A used 5 year old diesel will bring 4 or 5 thousand more than a gas truck , check comparable trucks on Blue book .

RE: Diesel Towing MPG With Ultralight Trailer

My Ram 2500 will get 16 MPG at 62 MPH pulling a 4,000 lb TT .Not towing we get 19 or 20 . Any speed above 65 MPH towing will drop it to 13 MPG .

RE: Travel Trailer Rubber Roof Blew Off

Been there , done that . Since I lost a roof 12 years ago we have had 5 RVs with fabric roofs . I now check my roof for " bubbles " , when I find one I drive brass carpet tacks down in loose area and cover with self leveling Dicor . Once I sliced with a razor knife and lapped over before the Dicor .
