Santa came last month with disc brakes & H rated tires & no I wasn't that good, I obviously got someone elses gifts, but I'm keeping them.

Santa came early to our Redwood, probably due to those dreaded words, "Some assembly required"

He brought new aluminium stairs, centrepoint and disk brakes, even installed everything personally :lol: :lol: :lol:

I asked Santa to bring drag chains this year just in case we have trouble crossing the Siskyou mountains going south next week. Snowing hard today so we may need chains just to get out of the driveway and down the front hill onto the highway! :woohoo:

Don't feel too bad, we are getting the same weather up the road. Currently snowing almost golf ball size flakes. We didn't even get rid of the last dump before this started.

Wish we were heading south now rather than in 3 weeks.

At what point do you decide to just sit and wait? Do you head out on snow pack roads? We leave Colorado 1st week in February, I'm feeling nervous. Last time we made this trip, I carefully checked the weather for the route and we still had awful weather. The most scared I've ever been. We were traveling on the Interstate and could not find a place to pullover and stay.

I would never think of departing with a trailer if there was snow on the road surface or if snow was predicted! One year we were surprised with heavy snow in the Siskyou mountains of Northern California which was not forecasted or expected. There was a high "pucker" factor! I tried to avoid the brakes not knowing what to expect. The purpose of carrying chains is in case of emergency so we don't get caught again.

Didn't ask, but Santa brought me a wireless backup camera. Now I have to figure out how to mount it :unsure:

We asked Santa for everything to be fixed so that we can move on in our trip. Serious suspension problems that we hope can be fixed.

Santa brought us a new 49 inch LG Ultra 4K HD TV for which I replaced the standard issue Toshiba in the living room. LG just fit between the rear windows. Now We are ready to watch Washington beat Alabama in the Peach bowl :woohoo:

George, watch I-70 for that new traction law. $150 fine if you don't have the equipment on board (which would be chains for the trailer). If it snows and you block traffic because you can't move or you cause an accident - $650 fine.

CO Code 15-16

I have to find chains I guess - or I'm grounded going west. Not sure they will do roadside stops to check your equipment, but you never know around here. They like to play when they invoke new nanny laws.

Twice I bought new RVs in January that were across the Rockies from me - and twice I had to wait out a storm :) It doesn't take them very long to clear up the roads after the snow, but if you get caught in a high altitude snow on a pass which rarely gets in the weather reports, it can be frightening.

I've never understood what a drag chain is. Is that some attached to the tire?

I think the definition of a drag chain is a chain on a free rolling wheel there to provide stopping power when the brakes are applied. But what do I know!

I thought "drag chains" is what everyone I've seen pulling any type of bumper hitch trailer doing, dragging the safety chains. I was wondering why you'd want some to drag with your RW??

Drag chains is the name for Tire Chains installed on a trailer to help in braking and to controlled it from sliding
