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

Yep, the "January Thaw" is over! 25 degrees, and just enough snow to turn the ground white, and remind us that winter is NOT over! However, later in the week it looks like the temps will be back in the upper 30s/lower 40s. I can live with that!

RE: Tesla Model S P85D in ice and snow

Unless ALL the vehicles involved in the "test" had identical tires, the "test" is absolutely meaningless, IMO.

RE: Towing 2009 jeep Patriot

What about the 4 wheel drive Patriot with automatic, is it flat towable If it has a 2 speed transfer case with NEUTRAL position, maybe. If it does not have the NEUTRAL position, probably not. Again, what does the Owners Manual say about "Recreational Towing"?

RE: Vintage cigarette advertising...

Which ones had the doctor recommending them? Was that Winston?

RE: Towing 2009 jeep Patriot

I doubt if it is towable except on a dolly, but check the Owners Manual for a section titled "Recreational Towing" or something similar. Good luck.

Vintage cigarette advertising...

"So round,So firm, so fully packed" What brand of cigarette used that slogan? Perhaps I should not say what brought it to mind, some might be offended. I think it may have been Pall Mall cigarettes, but I'm just not sure.

RE: Special License to drive a class A MH

My wife drives a school bus,she was wondering if we need a cdl or other type of license to drive a class a MH. Since driver licensing rules are SO VERY State specific, the only way you can get a true answer is from YOUR State driver licensing agency. Given personal experiences in several different states, I hope you have good luck in finding somebody who actually knows what your local rules are. I could tell you what the Montana rules are, but that won't do you a bit of good!

RE: Stupid Pet Policies

"Anyone ever heard of such a thing?" Yes, I have seen similar rules in many RV parks "Any prospect of talking some sense into the proprietors?" IMO, none whatsoever; Don't even bother to try. "Any other suggestions?" Yes. Your RV is on wheels. Move on.

RE: High altitude cooking

" I know @ Fishing Bridge there are no outside fires allowed so that leaves out grilling." I just checked a Yellowstone Park/Fishing Bridge website. It stated that propane stoves and grills are normally not restricted. However, campfires and "Campfire in a Can" are not allowed.

RE: Do I need a larger tow vehicle?

I must admit, a matched pair of Percherons or Clydesdales would be a lot prettier than any truck!

RE: Apple sold 74.5 million iPhones in the last quarter !

Good for them, and for their stockholders. I do not have a smart phone of any kind, and have no intention of getting one. I just don't think it is anything I really need.

RE: Combo Washer/Dryer, is this right?

Sooooo.....let's say you're getting a new RV and it comes with either a stacked washer and dryer or combo unit for the same price....does that mean many of you with a combo unit would opt for another combo? If so, do you have a combo unit in your home? Let's be realistic. If your coach only has room for a combo unit, fine, but if there is room for a stacked washer and dryer, it's the only way to go. For YOU, obviously. There ARE those of us who would (and do) disagree. Yes, if I were to buy a different coach, it would have a combo unit in it. No, due to space limitations, I would not want the stacked units in an RV. However, we DO have full-sized stacked units in the S&B house. We don't live in an RV at the present time, and space is not at a premium.

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

Not right now, though. They are now saying we will have an inch or so of snow by Tuesday evening.

RE: What is this thing? Not RV related.

P 38 can opener Yep, that. I remember mine stabbing me in the leg frequently when I was foolish enough to carry it in my pocket. Yes, it most certainly IS camping/RV related! They were packed with C-Rations. Ah, the memories... plastic peanut butter, hard crackers, and jelly. Chocolate bars, 1/4 inch thick and about 2 1/2 or 3 inches in diameter. Beef steak and gravy. Ham and scrambled eggs (commonly called "dog food", but good) peaches or fruit cocktail GOOD STUFF!! There were times at Cu Chi when I would go to the mess hall, take one look, and go back to the hootch and break out a pack of "Cs"!

RE: Combo Washer/Dryer, is this right?

We spent a couple years full timing in a fifth wheel that had a Splendide (vented) in it. I would not hesitate one bit to get another one! We often did two loads a day in it. DW would come home from the hospital in the morning, and put her scrubs and undies in it while getting ready for bed. When she got up, it was done and ready to hang/put away. After I took her to work, I would shower, put my clothes in the Splendide, and turn it on. when I got up in the morning to go get DW, my clothes were ready to wear. That little machine worked great for jeans, shirt, and underwear; one suit of clothes,from the skin out! If I had room in my 32 footer, I would install one. But, sadly, no room.

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

It has been fantastically nice here! over the past week we have set several new high temperature records, in the low to mid 60's range. Nearly all the snow is gone, even where it was piled up by the plows. I hope the trees don't get confused and start to bud. When the next cold snap comes (and it will), the buds would probably die! Trying to plan for the summer... I don't think I'm going to the RVradio.net get together in Wisconsin. It is almost 1000 miles one way! I will probably go to the Glacier/Waterton Hamfest again, in July, and Field Day at Roundup in June, but other than that I just don't know. I absolutely positively have to head for the mountains and do some camping and stream fishing this year! Jim, yer jus' gonna have to come out here and MAKE me take you fishing!

RE: Old Toad/New Experience

I use an old Demco Kar Kaddy dolly to tow our Chrysler PT Cruiser. I don't find dolly towing to be all that difficult. The farthest we have towed it was from here to Ringgold, GA and back. No problems. You will hear all kinds of doom and gloom stories about how horrible it is to use a dolly, and four down towing is the ONLY way to go. For the writer, such stories are undoubtedly true. I used to tow a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited four down, and I tow my Dodge 1500 four down. For ME, the doom and gloom stories about dolly towing are not true. for YOU? only YOU can answer that. Now, to return to the issue of whether or not your 2 wheel drive is towable. I absolutely agree, check the Owners Manual for towing instructions. If it is front wheel drive, it can be towed on a dolly. If it is rear wheel drive, there is a good chance it is not towable, period. Oh, yes, there are always those who say they towed the identical vehicle for thousands of miles. MATBE you can to, in spite of what the book says. then again, maybe you will be proof of the pudding, and your tranny will burn up after the first 500 miles. Good luck.

RE: Another blue tote concern

I might have to get me one of these tote thingys. It appears that I might be missing out on some fun others are having. I had one years ago. Used it once, then it sat under the work bench out in the shop gathering dust and spiders for a couple years. I sold it in one of our garage sales. I think I got $15 for it. I will never buy another one. WHY, you may ask? Because I either camp in a park where there are full hookups, or in campgrounds where there are NO amenities. As in, no hookups, no shower room, no dump stations, nothing other than about 4 water faucets (or pumps) for 20 campsites and a few vault toilets. In a place like that, a tote is useless!

RE: BIG Waste Water Tote Wanted

Thanks all. Fully aware of the weight, nightly used to haul 3 full 55g drums around ranch to water seedlings. No thought about using what muscle I have to drag it around, tow with pickup only. The (city) campgrounds we repeatedly go to have water & electric, but only a community dump station. Looking for easier way to dump than drag the 5er up every other day. Not trying to be rude, crude, and harsh, but IMO if you have to dump the tanks every other day you and your family need to learn how to conserve water! What would you do if you went camping in one of the Forest Service campgrounds or state parks that has no water hookups and no dump station, and the nearest dump station is anywhere from 10 to 40 miles away? Oh, and there IS water available, 4 faucets for 20 campsites, and they are not threaded. Some places have hand pumps that a "water thief" can not be used on! It is against the rules to dump your waste water into the vault toilets or on the ground. It can be an educational experience, to say the least!

RE: Best way to haul a quad?

Yes, before taking off with your ATV or "quad", you should be very familiar with the laws in the area where you plan to stop. Here in Montana, in order for your ATV to be street legal, it must have a rear view mirror, a horn, a muffler, hi/lo headlights, a taillight, and a license plate light. An ATV that is NOT street legal can not be ridden on public roads. Numbered Forest Service roads in the back country are considered public roads. You may not ride your ATV cross country where there isn't already a track. Out of state ATVs must go to any Fish, Wildlife, and Parks office to get a sticker, good for one year, cost $5. Just some examples of things an ATV owner should know.
