    Motorhome + Trailer length

    This is why I need to not give my opinion on these types of threads. I only spent 15 years of my 25 year career as a motor unit working traffic. Been to court more times then I can count. Been through untold hours of training but I'm sure you are right. Have a nice day, I'm out.

    Last week of March 2015 Google Earth

    I was on street view while at work and in my garage a few years ago. It since been updated. My house is on it though, I'm inside so only the NSA can see me.

    Motorhome + Trailer length

    With the stupid long 80'+ rigs these ballers are rolling out that day is coming. Not exactly true but regardless once you leave AZ you have to be legal in the state you enter. And why do you leave AZ don't you have dunes? Have you found a new RINO to replace McCain, asking for a friend? I hear the Dems have a new dossier they need delivered.

    Motorhome + Trailer length

    Its 75' as long as both trailers are no longer then 28.5'. Now if its a commercial car hauler with the king pin behind the rear most axle you can go 70' on a single trailer combination. There is a few 100 more pages but I'll stop there.
  7. Blow through turbo. I haven't seen one since the 80's very cool.

    Motorhome + Trailer length

    Back in 07 a group of us went to Idaho. One of our group was stopped and cited for over length by the CHP and sent on her way. It was a monster Weekend Warrior with a huge garage towed with an F650. Before that I know a member here was stopped and measured moho with a box he was just under but measured way under when the CHiPie had him hold one end of the tape. I haven't personally know any other instances. I do know there are a growing number of rigs in the 80' range. Time will tell if that causes an increase in enforcement. A little rant. Today's Trucks can haul 2 - 3 times what they could just 22 years ago. Yet the laws limiting them where written 50 plus years ago. We still go 55 (which was started in the 70 during the oil enbargo) because a vehicle traveling at a 15 mph difference in speed isn't unsafe on a CA freeway but is flat out dangerous on city streets and 48 other states. CA speed and lane control laws are about anything but safety as is the length laws. I don't believe a short trailer with a very high center of gravity is safer then a standard trailer that's 6 feet longer and weights 3 - 4k lbs less but that's how the laws writen.

    2012 Polaris RzR XP 900 - Only 32 hours!

    Here's a few. This thing is ridiculously clean with almost no hours. It's priced very well just be patient, I think tax season has everyone freaked out.

    Parking Brake on Sandcar - Ideas?

    I have left our cars strapped down for weeks more times then I can remember., springs and air bags. It's never been an issue. If you want to take it a step farther, do you take the weight of the car off them, what about the preload. Do you back that off and if its air bags, let the air out. What about the pressure in the shock? Do you let the nitrogen out? I have more then enough BS to take care of, I don't go looking for things to make my life harder.

    St Anthoy's is out for you. How long does it need to sit before you strap it back down?

    Dash A/C in DP MH Seized - Where to go in OC

    Drive a little farther and take it to Colton Truck Terminal Garage. Check thier reviews on Yelp and Google almost a perfect 5 star on both. People from out of state plan trips here to have service work done. I had them work on mine and check my dash ac.

    A Pack O' Lips Soon

    I just hope I can sell my house and get out before it's worth nothing. Right now it seems like nothing is selling around here but they are building new houses and condos like crazy. I hope they know something. Let me add I will not bring the CA flag with me. I refuse to own one of those commie rags even now let alone fly one.

    Who wears a helmet?

    I did in the begaining and you can haz out a street bike helmet in one good weekend following. At 40 bucks a pop, I got tired of replacing them and that was 10 years ago. The set up I did like was a 3/4 street bike helmet and Oakley sand goggles. I don't wear one now and don't plan on it.

    It's a growing problem in CA unless your a Democrat, then it's called progressivism.

    Crazy things you see in Glamis

    He was still hotdogging it near a ton of people. The people where there to watch the hotdog. In the end everyone's life will never be the same. No matter who gets how much money, only the lawyers will be happy. It's a bad deal all around. I have personally witnessed a fatality at Olds. Sadly, there have probably been a dozen more there since. The hill is an extreamly dangerous place just to be at. I would say the most dangerous.

    Crazy things you see in Glamis

    That's the story I heard, he claimed the "throttle stuck". That is easier then saying I was hotdogging it around a crowd and lost it and killed someone.

    I stand corrected.

    Another 'What are My Options' thread

    You really have 3 options 1 return the trailer and get your money back. A major pain in the ass 2 Get them to paint the fenders. Another pain and will probably fall off again 3 spend an hour to buy a 4 inch foam roller and a quart of rustoleum and repaint the fenders.

    32ft country coach diesel pusher

    You have to look long and hard to find a 32ft DP with a 350 Cummins and a 6 speed. I'm also suprised to see the kitchen on the drivers side. It allows for the nice big windows on your camp side. Big plus in my opinion.

    Dodge Ram ride/suspension qustion

    This is a good explanation and probably is adding to a ruffer ride. I'd go look at mine right now but it's getting its second trans rebuild. I still say the roads are worse and no argument I'm getting old. My truck is stock and along with keeping it I'm getting a reverse shackle kit that uses the newer super duty springs. I also plan on doing the conversion on the rear springs. I don't know if that's an option with a Dodge. I have considered going air ride but it would be a 100% custom and a ton of work for something I drive less the 10k miles a year.

    Dodge Ram ride/suspension qustion

    What has worn out is you. Add the fact that our roads here have only gotten worse and you have your explanation. That is based on my personal experience. I have the truck that set the bar for ruff riding truck, a 97 F350 4x4 crewcab. It rode ruff when I got it new off the lot. It was so bad at times it would blur your vision if you didn't get your arms off the arm rests. I was 31 in good shape and driving the coolest 1 ton truck on the road. Those times where also only on a few sections of roads. 22 years later my old ass hates driving it around here any more. Freeways that wheren't bad are terrible now. Add in 22 years of aging and a career ending motorcycle crash and I seriously think about selling it. Why I don't is simple, I don't want to drop 70k plus to get something that rides better and when I drive it in other states that maintain thier roads it rides pretty good. I would suggest getting a cheap car to drive around or move out of this state to one that doesn't waist all your tax money on illegal aliens and free shit for the unwilling to work.
