I would just like to comment that this forum, of which I have been on for
about 2 years, is very informative. However, I have made this observation:

Some people have good information and reference good material in their
suggestions and answers, like the owners manual and supplementary towing
guide, workshop manual, etc. I would like to say thanks for the good info.
and I commend your attention to detail (you know who you are). On the other
hand, some people wing answers with a bunch of flibbidy flabber and no data,
and make it sound like they know what they are talking about.

By the way, this is not in response to any particular message, I just wanted
a quick way to reply. Thanks for all the good advise.

RR.

Well, I think like all in life, YMMV (Your Mileage May Vary).

The Internet (Web pages, Usenet, Newsgroups and various subscription list,
etc) are like everything else in life: There is a lot of good, but there
is also some bad. You have to be smart enough to be able to sort out the
"flibbidy flabber" from the "good material", so to speak.
