RE: Boycott “No Campfires”

It is pretty apparent you are one of those people who feel that paying a site fee allows you to do whatever you want, damaging property included, and let the costs incurred be borne by the park owner and future guests. Absolutely not. I pick up the trash left by others and leave none of my own. My fires are well made and tended. When I leave a site I leave it better than I found it. Most campers do do such things. You, on the other hand, are clearly of the opinion that you need to dumb everything down for everyone. Possibly because it makes your life easier not to have to go and visit sites when people have left and see what they have done. If they have damaged stuff charge them for it. It's not rocket science but it does take some additional work... Surely you are intelligent enough to realize the damage done by people. You are living in a bubble if not .You say most, I won't argue that, unfortunately the few do enough to have to have the rules. You said it yourself picking up after others. I don't know how big his RV park is, but gotta be pretty fun running around looking for offenders that have destroyed his property. Just the damage done in the bathrooms, got any ideas for that ,so he charge them for the damage. What you are saying is don't have the rules because I behave myself, and shouldn't have to be restricted for the actions of others, the only one that should take the brunt of the few is the owner of the park .

RE: Friends from the "OOP'S" thread.

Glad to see you back, cummins. I woke up my old cummins yesterday and hauled a bunch of ferrous scrap to the scrap yard. Made $9 on that trip! Actually paid for the fuel with a little left over! Now I need to gather the copper scrap (except for potential antenna wire), the aluminum cans, and the "dirty" aluminum and haul it in. I have to look at the "dirty" aluminum first, and make sure there is nothing there that would make a good ham antenna... I also fired up the old garden tractor and beat the weeds in the pasture down the other day. Thanks. Weather has been pretty good here, although it looks like a storm this weekend, but then looks pretty good after that. Fifth wheel is winterized, and ready for winter. Bit of yard work ,and we should be ready for winter. No hunting this fall, didn't draw a tag for anything :( Looks like we are going to be a two man show here . :)

RE: Boycott “No Campfires”

"so many places don’t allow wood fires but not allowing propane campfires is beyond ridiculous." That's a bunch of "Barbra Streisand". And apparently you have no idea why , but yet :S

RE: Friends from the "OOP'S" thread.

I noticed the trend earlier, ro_sie was starting to taper off, no one else seemed to be interested in this thread anymore. I will try to frequent it more often . Been pretty busy since our Montana trip. Finished fencing the yard. Done a couple trips one with the kids. Its time to get the yard in shape from being gone so much, plus getting it ready for winter ,trimming etc .

RE: Boycott “No Campfires”

It’s bad enough that so many places don’t allow wood fires but not allowing propane campfires is beyond ridiculous. We stayed at an Oregon State Park last summer & were informed propane fires were not allowed due to fire danger. I questioned the host about how many times a propane fire has sparked a wildfire & he finally admitted "we're afraid other campers may see your fire and assume it's ok to have their own wood fire". Another example of dumbing down everything to suit the lowest common denominator! Did both of you miss the post by Westernrvparkowner, no open flames ,children lighting branches ,sticks whatever ???? Waving them around. Thats enough right there, does that not make sense to you . Really need to understand the issue, its far from ridiculous.

RE: Ford 6.7L 1050 ft lbs TQ at 1,600 rpm, 475 HP at 2,800 rpm

Except when it comes time for repairs; the 7.3L will cost much less than most everything on the 6.7L.....;) Could be but my diesel mechanic said he has never had a 6.7 apart for repairs, just maintenance and to make stuff fall off. Ya, things do like to fall off these 6.7 Cummins. Had a drive pully come undone all six bolts either broke off or came out, luckily nothing got tore up or went thru the radiator . Truck was pretty tough to drive with no power brakes or steering .

RE: Ford 6.7L 1050 ft lbs TQ at 1,600 rpm, 475 HP at 2,800 rpm

It's a good thing for the manufacturers that some of us appreciate what the new trucks have to offer. If someone where to offer me an unused '01 Super Duty or Ram free of charge with the condition that I had to park or sell my newer one and use the '01, I'd definitely turn them down. I might struggle enough to even accept the offer if it were a unused 2006 GMC Denali Duramax that was being offered. I totally disagree. My dad has a 2000 Powerstroke that takes a half a county to turn around because of the front leafs and you can hardly carry on a conversation going down the highway. But that truck new for free? Yeah, I'd save the money I spent on my truck and invest it and happily take that old 7.3 with the crappy 4 speed trans. It may be a bit crude but it's reliable and even tows relatively well, and I think that's a pretty good looking vintage for Fords. Bought new ,and drove for nearly 16 years the early 99 7.3 Superduty . Great truck. IMO still the best looking body style out there for a 4 door crew cab short bed, but thats about where it stops . Just no comparison to these newer trucks, comfort power etc.

RE: Dodge / Chrysler Uconnect Issues

May sound dumb but have you replaced OE batteries? I agree . I know hard to believe :B My sons 2016 did all kinds of crazy electronic stuff including the radio ,until his batteries were dead one morning ,and he replaced them . Everything went back to normal .

RE: ST Tires ???

If you're perfectly honest with yourself you have to realize that there are more issues with the Goodyear tires than with the Sailun. I rarely read any motorhome forums, but I have glanced at a couple that were talking about blowouts with their Goodyear tires. And, while Goodyear had some definite issues several years ago, there are still occasional reports of 614 failures. OTOH I've read about 1 Sailun failure that I can recall. Without knowing the number of Goodyear's sold vs the number of Sailun's sold, and comparative mileage of each, there's no way to accurately compare the reliability of each. However the number of complaints about problems with the Goodyear vs the Sailun weigh in favor of the Sailun. Until you know how many of each are sold each year you have no idea the FACTS. I'm betting GY sells more. I have never said GY is better or worse. I have never said Sailun was a POS like some do about GY without having ever owned one. Or better yet some that have had ZERO issues with their OE GY "G" or "H" and went to Sailun simply for a better price not giving a **** if they are supporting a Communist Country. Yep I have an iPhone made in China and if what they say is true my next one may be US Made. CapriRacer states about as accurate info as possible on the ENDURANCE and it's not good enough for some. I have stated I had ONE tire issue with GY over the MANY thousands of miles I have towed with several trailers, they took care of me. I support US Made where I can. Not sure why you are bringing up MotorHomes??? We are talking trailer tires. Since you did I use Michelins on my Tow Vehicles. Why not GY? I simply have not given them a try. Sorry I am sticking with my I phone X . :B I would check the labels on your clothes , shoes etc.

RE: ST Tires ???

I might well be the one mentioned a few post back about a blown G-114, it was actually 4 1/2 years old with approx 40K miles on it. Were doing 65 on the Ohio Turnpike, all tires running within a couple of degrees of each other and also within a couple of pounds. Just suddenly "Boom" a pieces of rubber flying. Only took out the plastic fender skirt which I got replaced for free at the Rally we were headed to. Tire was sent to GY, who upon checking sent a check for a replacement. Mean time we installed all new Sailun H rated tires and new wheels. Another happy ending with a GY tire. And YES the Sailun has issues also. I am sure there are issues with the Sailuns, but have yet to read of one blowing out. I am victim to a road hazard it does happen , but the Sailun tire DID NOT explode like some of these Goodyears . This post above by Michelle S is one of the Montana reports I read that I posted on here, that you told the forum here there were none on that forum, "nice" !!! That one is not the only one, there have been several on the Montana forum, as well as the ones we have read here . Your insistence on Goodyear is fine, but these reports plus many others tell a different story. And another thing ,now its supposedly , Sailun is building two plants in the US.

RE: ST Tires ???

back in 2012, I lost 2 614's on 1 trip from PA to Florida with ZERO damage... 1st was around Baltimore, ran over a piece of something.... I saw it, but couldn't get moved in time. I did not send to GY, t was my fault. 2nd was around 10:30 at night, wife heard something, I told her she was crazy.. we pulled into a Cracker Barrel, sure enough the passenger rear was still aired to 80# but had no tread... No damage to either, GY paid for that replacement in full.. NOBODY will warrant their tires like GY... NOBODY I lost a tire this year to road hazard, it was not fun. But what gets me here about Goodyear is how giddy some are about this warranty. Who in the world cares about warranty sitting beside the road with possible damage ,plus the fact of it being dangerous if having to pull over. I have to assume if they paid for a replacement then it was a defective tire ?

RE: ST Tires ???

Thats the good part when one of those G614 blows out . It’s ugly what they do in damage. Do you know another tire manufacturer that will pay for the trailer damage or ones insurance deductible? To be honest I have always bought quality tires, and have never had an issue, where there was any damage done . But to answer your question ,no I do not. Nor do I care. I have $50 deductible, tell me why I should buy a tire with the reputation of the G614 at nearly twice the price of a Sailun , so they will cover trailer damage .
cummins2014 10/08/19 06:55pm Fifth-Wheels
RE: ST Tires ???

Besides all the p ! $$ i n g back and forth, there is one true fact. That is that GY does more to warranty tires than anyone else who makes tires that go on trailers. This is my Endurance that picked up a bolt. GY paid 1/2 the cost of the replacement as a good will gesture. https://i.imgur.com/YZ6zE7Wl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/8H9j7gFl.jpg Thats the good part when one of those G614 blows out . It’s ugly what they do in damage.

RE: ST Tires ???

Look on the side of sailun tires and see where they are mfg. Why everyone looks over this in these discussions beats me. Then when they are manufactured in the US ,then what will the discussion be. Lets not forget where out Ram trucks are made, and who gets paid to manufacture them. Kind of a meaningless discussion really , products we buy are made all over the world, then all of a sudden we start making it about where TIRES are made :h
cummins2014 10/08/19 09:52am Fifth-Wheels
RE: ST Tires ???

Just curious why you would go back to ST tires. Have you had issues with the LT tires you've been using? Personally the only ST tire I would ever buy would be a Sailun. Wait, what about the Goodyear Endurance , it’s has a stellar reputation one said, but how’s that possible , at 2 years old . I agree Sailun is the only one for me , it TRULY has a stellar reputation

RE: Beef up (fish plate) “I” beam frame

When welding frames I always clamp stands well past the area I'm working to pull a strings tight, then notch a sticks for gauge. Short weld, skip weld another place, other rail whatever, then come back, repeat... Okay, read up a little on skip welding as they call it, still stitch welding, but its actually back welding for heat purposes , but then coming back , and actually seam welding or a complete weld, only for the purpose of heat distortion. We did a lot of pre bow. Pre bow on base plates that required a seam weld was much easier to just put in an established pre bow , let the heat pull it back straight, instead of having to mess with a bunch of stopping ,and starting welds. Of course in these frame applications ,thats not possible .
