    New-Used Prices

    We often read on this site questions from someone concerned with buying a used truck to pull an RV comparing the cost with a new rig.  There are price considerations that I rarely hear discussed. As a rancher and businessman I have personally purchased eleven pickup trucks over the years. My...

    Experience from reports

    From time to time we check Ratings Reports, on various Web sites, about an RV park where w intend to stop, and sometimes we check to see what others have reported about RV Parks where we have stayed. We have been doing this for close to 50 years and have developed a lot of skepticism.  I am just...

    Learned New Insurance detail

    This is a subject that I have never noticed discussed before. So, I thought I would mention it. One of my employees ordered and purchased a new 5th Wheel RV; The dealer offered a $2,500 discount if the employee would pick up the RV at the manufacturer in Elkhart, Indiana. Since I regularly...

    Reflection on closed minds

    I do not intend to open this for more discussion. But I do wish to be able to post my opinion about a subject on this site I noticed that the moderators of this site have caved in to some comments of some members here who object to others opinions. Specifically, the closure of a post merely...

    Credit Card Security

    I have changed how I fuel when required to leave Credit Card with Truck Stop Cashier. Perhaps this might help others. As most know some truck stops require that a credit card be left with the cashier while fueling, sometimes even asking me to state in advance how many gallons will be pumped...

    So California Prices

    I have a comment and question that may have no real answer. Over about 5 decades my wife and I have regularly traveled in our RVs over most of the Western Half of the United States. We have never traveled in our RV East of Indiana so I cannot speak to prices in the East. We have been lifetime...

    Update on Dodge & future Sugestions

    This is not a commercial for Dodge. As a long time rancher and truck business owner, I have owned over 25 Dodge trucks since 1961 that are used by my employees and me. I recently upgraded to two new Ram 1500 and two Ram 3500 trucks to replace older ones. In the process I learned some fact that...

    Directory Problems

    This is really not a problem for us but I am wondring if it is for others. We have been RV campers for decades and have always had Campgound Directories published by various organizations. Some are limited to various brands (Such as KOA), (Passport), etc., and I understand this. However, we...

    What about Fast Food?

    This is a question that has been on my mind for years. Perhaps someone here can answer it. My wife and I enjoy eating out fairly often. We eat at sit-down restaurants and also fast food (McD's, Carls Jr., Wendy's, Burger King, Fazolis, KFC, etc). We enjoy all and we find good food in all. Now...

    Clearing RV Antifreeze

    This is a subject that I have never read or heard about. Sorry if it is a duplicate. But to me it is obvious. Many have listed various ways to "antifreeze" an RV, pressure clearing lines, draining, pumping antifreeze in the lines, etc. But what about using the RV after liquid antifreeze has been...
