  1. Well welcome to the forum from another Ken and Susan. Our daughter and her husband have a Minnie Plus and love it. Ken and Susan
  2. I will not leave my CC with a multi thousand limit in the hands of a minimum wage clerk. My wife will go in with the card and get the pump started and she stands there and keeps an eye on the clerk and card. The pump cut off is set by the station and not the CC company. Ken
  3. Problem is we are a 5th wheel and are 58 feet nose to tail plus the bike carrier. Kind of hard to unhook and pull the beast with a bicycle. We have been told by a few that they went on it at 60 ft and no issue. My luck would be I'd get stopped. Ken
  4. Actually the correct term is "Global Climatic Change".....but we have all been told by our less then truthful Congressional leaders that it is all a "Chinese Hoax". Ken
  5. You need to contact a tax accountant and not depend on 'Free" advise from the internet. Ken
  6. Bill we are in Port O'Connor and to day was light drizzle and fog. Can't see across the road now. Ken
  7. The Garmin 760RV with lifetime maps is great, but you have to use it in conjunction with a map. It will not always pick the best route. And it does route you differently in RV mode. Like most things you have to learn its limits and how to use it. Ken
  8. That is El Nino or La Nina. We are in Port O'Connor since Dec 28 and we have had very few sunny and normal days. We have had lots of rain, drizzle and fog. And it is not Global Warming....the correct term now is Global Climatic Change. Ken
  9. We are keeping the Escapees Roadside Assistance. We have had GS and Coachnet over the years and decided to dump GS after a call out to change a tire on the dually. GS said that there would be an extra charge if they had to add air to the spare. This is a major crock. The truck arrived with an air compressor and pneumatic tools, so he had air. Ken

    Impact tool

    You lubricate the stud threads, the torque value is much lower.

    Impact tool

    Impact tools are a great time saver if used properly. Wonderful to get the lugs off. but when reinstalling, just use the impact tool to snug the lug nut up, especially on aluminum wheels. After snugging, use a torque wrench set for about 1/3 of the recommended torque. Tighten the lugs in the proper pattern then go to 2/3 the torque value and finally to the full recommended torque. Then after 50 to 100 miles, stop and recheck torque to recommended value. After another 100 miles, recheck the torque again. Finally after 500 miles, do a final check. Doing this will insure you have the lugs torqued evenly and properly. I know this sounds like a nuisance, but it is the best way to set wheel lug torque. The tire shops that run the lugs up hard and once are taking the chance of over stressing the bolts and taking the material beyond it's yield strength. Once a bolt is taken beyond its yield strength, it is ruined and is now weaker. It is set to fail now. Ken
  12. The weatherman may be wrong a lot, but I'll go with him over a rodent. Ken
  13. We had Safeco for two years and then with no claims, tickets and for no reason, jumped our rates almost 30%. It pays to shop about every 3 years. Ken
  14. People usually do not have any empathy for a single statement rant. Ken
