RE: Griddle For Camp Chef Question

Large skillet I don't know how many griddles I have bought and given away. As recently as last year I bought a huge stainless steel one to cover both burners. Just two huge hot spots and it tries to warp. So back to the old tried and true huge skillet. It evens out the heat or you can slide it off to the side to have a hot spot and a cooler spot to slide cooked things over. The sides prevent you from feeding the dogs so often. My mother gave me one of these and I had it hanging for almost two years before I gave it a try. You can cook large or small quantities and it will keep tons of fried potatoes nice and hot. Room to scramble eggs and fry bacon too. Storage is not that bad. It is one that I will never part with.

RE: Hwy 20 between Fort Bragg, CA and Willits, CA

No problem and here are directions if you are coming from the Sacramento valley. This question comes up frequently so I saved this. Just reverse the route when going West to east. Take Highway 20 West out of Williams. 37.1 miles. Williams is at I5 and Highway 20. Watch for Highway 53 as you drop down a hill after a fairly long climb. Easy climb and multiple lanes. Turn what would be South onto 53. You will go about 8 miles. Look for the sign to Highway 29 which leads to Kelseyville. This is a nice road and will become freeway in a few miles. Eventually you are back to two lane for a short distance and will come to a stop sign. You are back to Highway 20 again. This leg is about 30 miles. Turn left and enjoy the beautiful drive right to 101 This route will bypass the two lane twisting and winding on the North side of Clear lake. If you want a good view of the lake go ahead and stay on 20 all the way to 101.

RE: I have a problem with hard boiled eggs........

Once boiled pour the hot water off and immediately run cold water in the pan and add ice. In a short time reach into the water and tap the egg all over and keep it in the water. Grab another egg and repeat until all of the eggs have their shells shattered. Now grab one and squeeze it but don't squash it. You should feel the egg come loose inside the shell. It will begin slipping around inside the membrane. You can even act like you are rolling a meatball. Now you can tear the shell off easily. Just release the egg and shell back into the water until done. The water can be a great benefit when you first start removing the shell by getting between the membrane and the shell.

RE: Snake in a basement of DP!

Lots of snakes out right now. Fortunately most are not poisonous but all can bite of course. Mice can get in there and a snake will follow. I place mouse poison in that area as well as the shoreline cable area to keep the mice at bay. Getting those critters to leave the security of a tight place is difficult. Leave the bay door open so there is a much easier way to get out. Wish I could be more help but am sure someone will come up with some great idea. I tried to chase one out from below one of my sheds. The only thing that worked was a garden hose on one side and patience.

RE: Got new loveseat recliners put in the Outback 295 today

How far from the wall does it have to be?

RE: 8KW Diesel generator

Go to the start button right on the generator and compare your results. The remote wiring sometimes needs to be exercised at the connectors.

RE: electrical issue

A tester can be easily fooled too. Try the same test using the tester. See if the symptoms or the lights change with the load on the circuit.

RE: electrical issue

You are getting fooled using a digital voltmeter and no load on the outlet. Go to an outlet that is giving you problems and put your voltmeter to work. Now plug anything in to the other outlet on the same outlet. That is, measure one of the outlets while you have a load on the one above or below the one you are measuring. There are two outlets per wall plate so this should be easy. I bet your voltage goes to zero. Now the fun part, tracking back to where the problem is. I too suggest turning off your AC breakers one at a time. Press them into the off position. Sometimes one will feel fine but actually be tripped. If resetting does not solve it you likely have a bad connection. Since I don't know what RV you have do you have an inverter? If so it may have breakers on it too. Back to a possible outlet issue. Outlets generally daisy chain from one to another. You may need to do some guesswork to find where those outlets are fed from. There are devices "fox and hound", that make the job a lot easier.

RE: who's in the Sacramento area?

Check the Stony Ford area and the Black Butte area. Just West of Willows and Corning.

Try this trick to see if it helps. Hold the Ctrl key down and push the + key. This will enlarge the type. Hit Ctrl - to reduce it.

RE: Extra 12 volt battery

Ditto on buying a jump starter device. Much safer than using regular jumper cables.

RE: A Really Accurate Fridge Thermometer

If your refer does not have a fan inside then search for a battery operated one to keep the temp very even. I found a great battery operated thermometer with an alarm. The readout is mounted outside and the sensor goes inside of course.

RE: Cell phone or Walkie Talkie for 8 YO DGD

Hug a tree training We taught our autistic grandson the same concept when at Disney parks. Teaching him to recognize any cast member with a badge he was taught to ask any one of them for help. It paid off one day when we got separated. No panic. We found him with crayons and a Cast Member right at his side. His grandparents were lost, not him.

RE: Cell phone or Walkie Talkie for 8 YO DGD

A whistle and teach her to "hug a tree". Stop, find a friendly tree, hug it and stay put. Radios are a good idea but I would still add the whistle and hug a tree. Forty years in the two way radio business and I can assure you the range will be as suggested at under a mile or even less in heavily wooded areas. Of course, jump in a helicopter and the range becomes line of sight and can go a great deal.

RE: You know the season is over when

When I hear of people "Winterizing". Is that like Simonizing? Is it a special wax being used? Antifreeze in water lines? I prefer any antifreeze be administered to me.

RE: shore power gone?

Check on the transfer switch using your nose for a few days. Any burned contacts or burned wires can lead to heat build up and fire. Tightening may have cured the issue but it warrants a wary eye for a few weeks.

RE: shore power gone?

Fire up the generator again, it appears your transfer switch did not go back to shoreline. It is possible you have one that was recalled due to several fires. If you get 110 at least you can charge your batteries quickly without hammering your alternator. In any case you probably have an EMS panel where there are lots of switches for water pump, etc and a readout telling you what is going on. What is it telling you? If you are not comfortable with a voltmeter and testing AC circuits you may want to have someone do the testing. If you feel ok then this should be easy enough to sort out. Shoreline to transfer panel to AC breaker panel Generator to transfer panel to AC breaker panel In the path from the shoreline is the reel, the plug, and the shoreline panel.

RE: Amature Wiring Diagram. I Need Help.

You do not necessarily have to have a transfer switch if you install an inverter. You can install an inverter close to the batteries so the DC from the batteries is close and will not lose power due to cable lengths. At this point you just plug your shoreline cord directly into the inverter. Here is the catch at that point. Your mini mite will be trying to charge the batteries which is not what you want so you would need to turn the mini mite off by unplugging it or installing a switch to accomplish the task. I have done this on two rv's and it works fine. You are limited in the size of your inverter but it is enough to run a small tv or something that uses a lot of power for a short time. This is an uncomplicated method. Not elegant.

RE: Chevy Colorado

There is a Chevy Colorado forum and a discussion about having to disconnect the battery. Possibly due to the electric steering system mechanism.

RE: Disney Fort Wilderness vacation Discount

Fortfiends not fortfriends Everything you would like to know. As for the daily pass prices, yes they have gone up but most folks stay for multiple days and the multiple day passes are priced much better. Ditto on not having to pay about $20 a day for parking and transportation to any of their locations is included. The local RV parks are not cheap.
