  1. Gee, I didn't know National Lampoon was still in publication.
  2. I believe you may be stereotyping yourself as, please excuse the pointed phrase, a control freak. Also feeds a common (I hope) misconception about police. If your statistic is anywhere near accurate, I am happy to hear that 90% of dog owners see them as family and not animals to be subjected to abject domination and control. The industrial revolution pretty much put an end to that. At least in our part of the world. I respectfully suggest you keep your dog on a leash in public and don't play fetch on I-75.
  3. 2004 F250. A response on another forum said that Fords after 2003 can take the larger nozzle. Will see if it is true next time I fuel up.
  4. I tend to agree. What led you to the conclusion that tires are the answer to your "princess and the pea" issue? You may want to look at your suspension and steering first. Also your RV is not going to ride like your 760Li BMW. Possibly your expectations are a not realistic.
  5. Sorry I am a little late to the party. I currently do not have a hotspot but probably will this summer when we hit the road. That is why this thread caught my attention. Am I correct when I say all this discussion is about a separate piece of hardware? I use Consumer Cellular (ATT towers). They have offered to turn my iphone into a hot spot for a monthly charge. I do not recall how much at the moment. Instead of throttling when you reach a certain amount of data they kick you up to the next higher plan. Any comment on using your cell phone as a hot spot?
  6. I have not been on the road pulling a 5th wheel with a diesel pick up truck in 13 years. Although I have always had a diesel pickup I go to the car pumps to buy diesel.The last time I camped the semi-truck pumps at truck stops had larger diameter nozzles which were too large for my pickup truck. Obviously I had to chose fuel stations wisely. I would have paid the extra money to fill up at a truck stop for the convenience of using the semi truck pumps. I have a 2004 F250 diesel. Are pickup trucks now able to use the larger nozzles? Thanks, Friz
  7. If you know of any place, please direct to to a Disc upgrade not much more money and less trouble than electric. I have not found a set of Discs less than $1000. I found a new Dexter set, Drums, for $160. I would very much like to upgrade to Discs. Thanks, friz
  8. Good Sam's is offering Roadside assistance for $79.99 for 39 hours more. Usually leary of this sales tactic so I thought I would ask here. Is that a good deal? What Roadside Assistance do you use and how much? Obviously I need/want it. Have been out of RVing for 12 years. We will be on the road in a couple of months.
  9. Wife has Medicare and Tricare for Life. Have never paid a penny in out of pocket expenses excluding the Medicare monthly premium. Given the number of times she goes to a doctor each month, the Medicare premium is pretty well covered by the co-pays for which Tricare for Life pays. Tricare for Life has covered 100% of anything Medicare does not. I use the VA. Care is no cost. We get our prescriptions filled at the Naval Hospital pharmacy - no cost. Not sure of how the VA works if I am forced to use a non VA facility like when we are on the road.
  10. Anyone use Caravan Overnight Sensor Cleaner or a similar product? If you have do they work? Thanks, Friz
  11. How much does the standard plate assembly in the truck bed weigh? Exclusive of the attachment assembly on the frame. How long does it take to install? Remove? Is it a one man job? Or do you just leave it installed? Thanks, Friz
  12. Went to the web site. First reaction was crazy expensive. Then paged through the photos which end with a cutaway drawing of the adapter. That explained the cost. This thing pivots on a pin and has a damper/shock absorber to dampen the force transmitted to the camper frame while bouncing along the road. Unique.
  13. Exactly which library service in Florida did you join? Looked at Florida Electronic Library but no download or way to join. There are lots of county services.

    Generator Noise

    All very good info. Thank you very much. The fact is I have 2 generators, a 7500w Briggs& Straton and a 5500w Champion. These are the type of emergency power gen sets popular here in Florida. I get the impression theses are called open commercial. I don't think I will be buying a 3rd gen set. As far as a running gen set in a campground, that is not what I have in mind. I am will be looking for full hookup or water/elec sites. Also do not plan on overnighting in a rest stop, possibly in an emergency. I do appreciate how much noise my Champion makes and would not be running it to the annoyance of those around me. 74 db is loud. I think the little Hondas are like 54 db. I am going to take a serious look at an enclosure. I doubt if this is a new idea. I expect to find lots of guidance and designs. If it doesn't work to my satisfaction I'll just leave the thing at home.
