RE: window 8.1 sucks for me

Last evening I removed 8.1 back to windows 8. After doing some reinstalling of items I use the laptop is working great. I made an error and hit the Norton power eraser on my awesome sony laptop and lost everything so this is one of my backups. Might get the sony repaired if the back up disks work. thanks everybody chevman

window 8.1 sucks for me

MSN not responding or yahoo not responding. Any reason for this that I can fix ? Not a problem when the 8 was on when the computer was new but I had to mess it up. chevman

RE: Sliding closet Doors in fifth wheel

We were told to be careful or the plastic latches could break when we picked our 2001 alpenlite up at the dealer. 2579 nights later they are still doing the job. I guess we listened. chevman

RE: Purchased Damaged (without knowledge) RV from Camping World

From what I see and hear in our winter's rv park I do not understand anybody buying an rv from CW. I want to say stupid but will not. chevman

RE: Engine Temp how hot is too hot?

My friend had an 06 F360 srw 4x4 and towed a 38 ft fifthwheel. He told me several times he towed the highway though the Eisenhower tunnel highway and his truck didn't even slow down. OK wow that is great I said but no way from what others have told me. chevman

RE: Rear caps - pros and cons

Hey folks - Just a thought here, do you think that because of the new radiused roofs, that may have bearing on the shape of rear "caps"? I mean it's a lot easier to put a "cap" on a more squared off back I would think. Comments? I have a curved truss roof and the rear cap was molded to match the curve. http://i269.photobucket.com/albums/jj53/snoking1127/DSCN0136_zpsd33fcd64.jpg Here is a similar vintage Cardinal without the rear cap. http://cdn8.traderonline.com/v1/media/55936df68abd11e16bb090f5.jpg? width=770&quality=70 Nice view of the rear but how can you back into a small rv site. Is the picture misleading what I see? chevman

RE: Mission accomplished!!! (Bearing service)

After all that theory, I bet you are going to be on edge for the upcoming trip. :h I don't disagree with all the theory here, however I am assuming you wiped the races clean and made sure they looked good. If so i would go with the following advice: I would monitor hub temps with a IR thermometer though. It's not like the $15/axle bearing sets were run in at the factory to match the rollers to the races. They just get a cage out of one bin, a race out of another and wrap them up together. I use my paws instead of the IR shooter. If all feels god after the run in of 100 miles or however you want to use as a yard stick, you should be good to go. Oh and don't forget to let us know that the trip went well, so all of us theory folks can immediately come back and say you were lucky. Thanks Dave for bringing some sanity to this thread. I thought I did something right but I guess I only did it half right. I know that the races should really be replaced at the same time, I was just trying to save a couple of bucks. I will do as you advised and monitor the bearings. I was happier that I found the cut wires and repaired them than the bearings. Believe me, the next time I do a service on the bearings I will replace all with Timkens. Oh and I won't metion it here. Thanks for all the replies, John Maybe I should have titled this thread "Mission half accomplised!!! I sometimes feel the information given is not wanted as it is said BUT another person does not know what you or me is thinking and give what they feel is what they would do. I overkill everything so I have to be careful telling others information. So let it go and remember safe is best. chevman

RE: Backup Camera ?

We installed a back up camera on the license plate but not for hitching the fifth as I have a good method for that job. I wanted to see what is near us when are in AZ for the winter for 6 months. If we had a boat or a TT what we have would be awesome, We had a choice of installing at the high cab stop light. chevman

RE: HD truck sales numbers (2500/3500)

When all 3 are selling this is a good thing for us. Hard to understand how folks can afford a new vehicle. chevman

RE: beating a dead horse about tires, but have a question

TPMS is worthless if the tire throws the tread like lots of them do. There is no loss of pressure, but the damage is still done. Instead of spending money on that, I would first install quality tires. Point well taken There is no point to that comment but anything can happen very quickly. I like having knowledge what our rv tires are doing and if a tire blew guess what!! I would know to get off the road instead of waiting for a horn to honk and get a wave something is wrong. chevman
