Glad to hear it worked out well! We have been stopped on the Colorado/Kansas border " going to slow" was the reason, funny as we were keeping pace with traffic 70+mph. I think they were on the look out for smugglers. The Kansas state patrol has had some really nice rigs at auction due to drug smugglers.

We get one heck of a lot of criminal trespassers and MHs are perfect for that activity. I have limo tint pass side and rear windows on my road car and I get checked sometimes at border crossings and sometimes there's a check point on I-8.

Can you please elaborate on this? I have 6 brand new Michelins on my "new to me" rig... Total cost $3500. I was planning on detailing the mh this weekend... which will include amoralling the tires...

Steve,
I put six new Michelin's on this past fall. They had great tread, but age or U-V cracking on the side walls. I went to a truck tire dealer with just a few locations, not a big chain. They said they have never replaced RV tires for wear -- it's always UV damage. They said not to wash off the brown stuff that seems to ooze out of the tires, because that is an additive the maker puts in to slow rot. Not to Armoral or use any kind of dressing. That can add to UV damage. Just keep them covered with UV protective covers when not driving. I trust these folks because my son is a trucker and he uses them. By the way I paid $ 2,500. They ordered them in and also checked the tire dates to see they all matched. Once in a while they get tires that are dated over a year out. They've been decaying in a warehouse. So I am leaving the brown stuff. I don't like the appearance, but don't like buying tires either.

No Armor All! Use 303 Protectant.

Oh geez people,, relax... Why else would they pull us out of a line of traffic ??

He looked paperwork over, said the reason he pulled us over was the tag said a pickup
So do you think the cop was not telling the truth about why he pulled you over? Why are you reluctant to elaborate on your profiling comment?

First of all, Like others said before, I was just relating an RV experience on an RV site. I'll say again if you missed it,,, I had No problem with the Officer, he was VERY friendly. Maybe "profiling" is a bad word in your world.. Why else pull over a legal vehicle with an older man and woman in it ?? Doesn't matter to me what color your skin is,, and to answer the question of the officer telling the truth, there are "glitches" in every system. Could be he had such good eye sight to read our license plate in a line of traffic, search it and find it belonged to a pickup, even though it was issued to our motorhome. (all that in the very few seconds to pull out and follow us,not to mention the mile or so he was sitting beside us holding up traffic..) Seems in this day and age he would have had my life history, ex-military, CDL, carry permit,, etc... If that doesn't answer your questions,,, sorry bout it... Just relating a story...

Monkey there is no reason to be so defensive. We are not judging or attacking you. We are simply curious. Maybe you would be nicer to us if we were all police officers

The LEO may have been waiting for one that couldn't run away. Maybe saves him enough time to indulge in and extra powdered sugar donut.
