RE: Sway Control options - help please

How about this one? I don't have sway problems but I did install one of these, for the price why not. I did tighten it up coming across the desert in east Oregon with about a 30-40mph side wind. I think it helped a little, again I don't have much problem. just a side note I have a friend one of those that thinks if a little is ok then a lot is better. anyway I ask him how tight he sets his. he said you just have to play with it. he then said he tightened it real tight the first time and he couldn't turn the tow vehicle. Jay D. What are you guys tightening, the handle or the bolt?

RE: senior pass

I paid for my future retirement and health care for half a century, then I was told the deal was altered. If one wants to get bent about something, find bigger items than a park entrance fee.

RE: Good thing bad thing

Check to see it the smell is coming from the air admittance valve usually located under the sink(s). Replace with a good one from a home improvement store. I wouldn't keep any drain valves open to the entire campground sewer system.

RE: No more full size cars from GM

When you look vehicles today compared with what was on the market in the '60's and 70's, todays vehicles are huge. Growing up we used to think of a Pontiac Bonneville as an absolute monstrosity. Now park one next to Lexus and the Pontiac looks small in comparison. :h The Bonneville was 7 inches longer and 7 inches wider with a foot longer wheelbase and an engine more than twice the size.

RE: Why Tesla's are bad at towing!

There is more than weight that adds to the expense of operating roads. Signage, guardrails, signal lights, law enforcement, mowing, snow removal are a few. To allow some vehicles to not share the burden gets back to the politics of this subject.

RE: Neighborhood bear

Pennsylvania is named for William Penns woods, the entire state was bear habitat. Folks in a populated area freaked out about a bear so it was captured and relocated. Now the folks are happy, a hunter is happy, the bear not so much. Bear Killed

RE: Why Tesla's are bad at towing!

So how much does a Tesla wear out and degrade the roads? Is this question about the roads built by fuel tax money, or some other roads?

RE: Old propane tanks on new RVs

Since he was quoted a high price for replacement, perhaps they are 30lb bottles which cannot be exchanged.

RE: Why Tesla's are bad at towing!

Because they are taxing me to fund a rebate for you to buy one...you want to buy one, fine...if the company survives, great...but when you make me pay for it, I get say.Really? What line on your 1040 relates to the EV surcharge? BTW any tax credit to Tesla Buyers ENDS December 31, 2019. The bottom line where the total tax is listed is where the hogs come to the trough. Hopefully the rebates come to an end and then taxes are collected to fund the highways.

RE: senior pass

The new administration, yes this one, upped the fee from $10 to $80 and I agree it still is a bargain if you use it. We are heading toward a place where the wealthy can afford it so the rest of us will be staying home. It used to be camping and seeing the national parks was something everyone could do. Tents are being replaced by motor homes just like housing tracts are being replaced by gated communities. I suppose when you run a trillion dollar dept you have to look for places to cut back. Setting up a fair system of taxation is pretty tough to do, no doubt, but squeezing the little guy has always been easy. The fee increase was mandated by Congress as part of December 2016 legislation to raise money to pay for park projects and visitor services. That legislation requires the price of the lifetime Senior Pass to be the same as the Interagency Annual Pass, which is currently $80 for one year, according to a NPS press release.

RE: Neighborhood bear

I don't understand the problem, just leave the bears alone. I see a problem, and not a small one. The bears in the picture have no fear of humans. What will protect you when bear food gets scarce? No, it is not likely the bears will eat you, but it is even more unlikely they will set down at the table and politely ask you to pass the pancakes. So I guess those folks need to tear down the home and move back to the city?

RE: Opening and closing slides in winter

I would be concerned about any water that was retained and frozen.

RE: Neighborhood bear

Lynnmore, that picture is awesome! I have friends that moved from my area to live in a remote area in Potter County, PA. You would need instruction to find the place. The woods is dense and wildlife passes thru their lawn constantly. I wondered why they gave up good jobs and a large home to live there, I no longer wonder. Those bears actually had to be blocked from coming up on the porch to join us. https://i.imgur.com/7j5YyCCl.jpg

RE: Have our trucks got too much power yet?

Fish ladders are not very effective. In my area, only about 3% make it over the ladders and then they are too tired to do a good job of breeding.

RE: freezer have ice flakes

Make and model of refrigerator would help.

RE: RV storage - how much room is needed?

I wouldn't waste the time and money if you are not going to use it as a garage. My opinion is that there in more damage to an RV during hot summer months than cold and darker winters. My trailer is indoors whenever it is not in use. I put down marker tape on the floor for guidance when backing in so that the trailer is located where I want it. The idea of a larger door is good so that you can make the fine adjustments with little interference with traffic.

RE: is this enough truck to replace my F150 ECO?

Just remember that he can't haul or tow more, even with added air bags, the door sticker says so.

RE: Knee Pain

Had an MRI on both knees today to determine what type of replacements will be needed (partial or full). My insurance will pay the bulk of it and the remainder is out of pocket, just like my DW's one full replacement one year ago.

RE: Winter camping

Unless the hydrant is heated, it will freeze if a hose is connected.
