General Discussion / Re: Travel with propane

I do it.
Why is it 'Unadvisable'
Insurance companies are all about risk reduction there are two issues with running with the Fridge one.
One is basically microscopic in my opinion.. A fire a a result of an accident busting a propane line. First there are safety devices to prevent that even if the valve is open and 2nd that's a mighty specific accident... Especially if your propane lines are all on one side.

2nd: Well there have been some fridges catch fire. Now consider this
YOu are going down the highway and your fridge catches fire.. Well if you realize it your rig is toast... (If you don't then you are toast) but others can avoid you So it's just your rig.

Or you are parked nose to tail and so close you can't put your awning out at a Rally.. Next to a couple million dollars worth of Prevost or the like......  I will let you finish that picture.

General Discussion / Discount Tire house brand Hartland Radial tire
« Last post by Jkoht on Today at 03:59:20 PM »
Does anyone have any experience with this particular brand of tire? I blew a tire on my camper yesterday pulling it into town, and I'm supposed to leave on a trip on Friday. I'm going to bite the bullet and replace all 4 tires, but unfortunately I am on a budget and can't throw the best of the best on there. Discount tire has me set to put these tires on tomorrow. The ones I'm looking at are a D series with a 65 psi limit, 8 ply sidewall, and 87 mph rating, not that I'm going to tow over 60 anyways. Frankly as long as they can get me on down the road I'll be happy because after this trip the camper is getting parked for probably the better part of a year. Just wondering what anyone's personal experiences were. Looking around the net there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of first hand experiences, just hearsay and speculation.

Making music on the road / Re: Vocal challenges
« Last post by UTTransplant on Today at 03:55:22 PM »
While old age takes it toll, my voice is shot primarily from not using it on a regular basis.
The voice uses muscles that need exercise just like other muscles, but it has to be practice that doesn’t strain the muscles. When I started voice lesson, many, many, many years ago, my teacher told me to practice only 15 minutes a day at first. One reason was to get the muscles in shape gradually. The other, more important, is for him to make sure I was not straining my voice by incorrect technique. There is a lot of technique that can be taught to sing with an open throat and no strain on the vocal chords.

Side note: My mom was a semi-pro singer at weddings, funerals, and parties. She refused training because she was “already so good.” She ended up with nodules on her vocal chords. That put an end to her side singing gig.

Motorhomes / Re: Winnebago purchases Newmar

I think this explains why Winnebago dropped a number of their Class A models recently. I don’t see doom and gloom in this. Winnebago makes nice coaches, maybe not as nice as most Newmars, but I bet they want to play in the top rungs.

Makes sense, thanks. Reminds me of a situation back when I was 17 - I was riding with my uncle to pick up my cousin at college around Christmas time. He insisted on using (well, fighting with) the cruise control even though the roads were snow covered. Even as a new driver I knew that was a bad idea but it was a "don't question your elders" situation so I just sat there and kept my mouth shut...and butt clenched!
