  1. Herman, that is strange. I called the number on the back of the ID card and GMMI was who answered. They even asked for my FMCA number. No, I have not seen any bill from them. It wasn't fun to get things arranged and then the hospital she was in tried to take credit for arranging everything. My word of advice is to not get sick in the Las Vegas area.......
  2. No, my wife passed away on May 24th from the cancer. GMMI is the insurance company that answers the number that is given for the plan. No, I didn't contact Chubbs. I have no idea who that is.
  3. I want to give my take on the FMCA Assist benefit and see if this is/was correct. Back in January my wife was diagnosed with liver cancer. Long story short, in April she is in a hospital in Las Vegas and going down hill rather quickly. I wanted to get her back to Duluth, MN so she would be near our kids and in familiar territory, so I called GMMI. First thing I was told was "Sure we can transport her". Next was "Well, now we need this paper (or something to that effect), then it was a go. No, now this other paper is needed so I supplied that. Next was "we'll give you an update withing two hours". 48 hours later I called (again) and was told some other paper was needed. After almost three full weeks my wife was finally flown home and due to our pets we decided I should bring the truck and trailer home. It was so frustrating that I even called the air ambulance company just for reassurance. I even got a phone call from the CEO of the air ambulance company about the headaches and hassle of trying to arrange the flight. They would NOT tranport for treatment, would NOT transport for possible life saving surgery, and would only tranport for palliative care or hospice care. I questioned why there would not be transport for care, surgery, etc. but they will tranport for a patient to die and was told "Well, it's policy". I will say, the air crew was the most proffesional and polite crew you could ever ask for. Tom

    Mixing tire brands

    The tag really doesn't care what brand is on it. It's not like the steer that can cause safety issues with handling, not like a drive axle where you have one tire having slightly larger diameter or different diameters on each side. Both wheels on the tag freewheel and are not connected to each other or any other tire/wheel combination.
  5. Wife and I are going to go out whale watching in Puget Sound on Tuesday the 21st. Not cheap, but it sure sounds like fun!
  6. Could you do it yourself? That's what I would do.
  7. Maybe it's just me, but that looks to be a solution in search of a problem. What I would recommend is that you find a large parking lot (like a mall lot) and practice backing into spots. Then practice some more and practice more and.........well, you get the idea. I couldn't find any info as to the weight, but they can't be light. Then where would you store it for transport?
  8. https://www.campgroundreviews.com/regions/arizona/yuma This site shows 93 parks in the vicinity of Yuma. I would think you should be able to find something there. Tom
  9. No, my trailer has a shut off valve on the pump suction between the tank and the antifreeze line. To winterize with antifreeze you would shut the suction valve off and pull the plug on the antifreeze line.
  10. My fifth wheel does the same thing. I have a shut off valve in the pump suction line so that the pump will pull from a jug for winterizing. I just keep that valve shut off and open it when I want to use the water from the tank.
  11. Thanks, Ray. Looks like a nice place, but kinda rich for my blood........
  12. THANKS Everyone! I AM going to go that way! Really looking forward to it!
  13. That sounds a lot like the North Shore of Lake Superior when I used to drive big trucks there.......... On another note, anybody travel 101 in Washington and cross the Astoria Bridge? That bridge looks like fun!!
  14. Has anyone taken Hwy 101 in Oregon? I'm looking at heading south from the Olympic Peninsula this fall/early winter and was thinking about 101. Possibly be taking I-5 down to Portland (or there abouts) and head west form there. Wife has never been in the PNW so I want her to see lots of scenery. I will have a 38' fiver with me and was wondering if it was a decent road to run........
  15. That sounds totally normal. Even though they may look clean there may be enough blockage that it hampers the coil's ability to do its job. A lot of times what ever is blocking the heat transfer is not visible. Your compressor thanks you!!
