  1. in search of flat towable truck

    Boy is Jim in trouble My load sticker does not list CCC but you have to figure it manually “LOL” My GVWR is 30,000 minus UVW of 24460 equals my NCC of 5540. My UVW does include full load of fuel, oils and coolants but not water or LP. With that said I travel by myself and don’t take that much stuff maybe 2,500 (water, lp, food, clothes, and junk) I can stay within my GCWR of 36,000 I hope that looks like 24,460 +2,500 =26,960 then take the GCWR 36,000 – 26,960 = NCC of 9,040, my truck weighs between 6,900 and 7,200. Does that look about right?
  2. in search of flat towable truck

    My coach is a 325 hp DP, the GVWR is 30,000 and the GCWR (GVWR + Towed item) is 36,000. The GCWR should be on one of your coach ID stickers.
  3. I think they used my crates to start a garage, problem was they didnt get a permit and built it on the wrong side of the house so I had to tear it down
  4. You make me feel bad, I sold my first house for $4,200 and made a $1,000 out of the deal "LOL"

  6. Bataan & Corregidor Memorial Convention

    Thanks DBenoit, as a adoptee I got to meet my birth father once in 1978 but at the time we could not be sure if he was for various reasons, he passed in 1991. In November of 2016 I found a lady to take a DNA test that was related to him and he came up as a match and then I matched another lady that matched also. Our relationship is by my Grandfather and my Grandmother.
  7. Is anyone else going to the American Defenders of Bataan and Corregidor Memorial Society convention in Albuquerque, NM in May? I am hoping to make it if things workout. I would like to talk to anyone that my dad may have known but those odds are dwindling very fast now.
  8. GPS Systems, Which Is Best

    I just got a Garmin 770 and it is very nice but like all of they after I create a given route I will take Basecamp and fly the route in Google Earth to make sure its not making a turn where I dont want to go like take a exit and then right back on the road "LOL"
  9. 2.5in. Reciever Slop

    Just wondering if you might be using a 2" bar in a 2 1/2" receiver? I have a 2 1/2 receiver on my truck and I have a sleeve that slides in before I put one of my 2" ball hitches in and pin it.
  10. 1993 Cummins 8.3l Issues

    Check the fuel lines for crack too, this was my problem on my 97 Foretravel.
  11. Do You Have A Motorcycle With You While RV'ing?

    Thanks Brett, When I go pick it up someday, I am going to try and get a plant tour and ask a lot more question of them "LOL"
  12. Do You Have A Motorcycle With You While RV'ing?

    No way??? That's not bad at all. I wonder how a Uni-Frame coach will handle it?
  13. Do You Have A Motorcycle With You While RV'ing?

    That look interesting, what do they run about 10 coach bucks?
  14. Do You Have A Motorcycle With You While RV'ing?

    I have traveled with 2 bikes in my 5th wheel R1200GS and FE450 Husky but now with the Foretravel I will either use a trailer and bring them or just get a hitch carrier for the Husky. I am in the process of putting a sidecar on the GS so it wont fit on a hitch carrier.

  17. RV Navigation App

    I have used Basecamp since it came out on my zumo. It does have some quirks but once you get used to them you can spot them and fix them. My biggest problem is the GPS reroutes you without asking. best thing is to know where your turns are so when it tries to get you to exit every off ramp on a right had curve because it is a shorter distance you will know better
  18. RV Navigation App

    I just got my Garmin RV770 today, it contains all sorts of information. As soon as it charges up I will see how well it plays with BaseCamp.
  19. Firearms

    As per the link below if you are legal to own a firearm and traveling from one place where it is legal to another place where it is legal you can cross a state where they dont like it but it must be stored unloaded where it is not readily accessible from the passenger compartment. § 926A
