If you're worried about the bolts coming loose, even though you use Loctite. You can drill the bolt heads and safety wire them. Another thing you can do to see if the bolts are turning (loosening) put a line on the head and continue it to the surface the bolt head is up against. That way if it turns the mark won't be lined up. You can use a felt pen or a little line of paint. Loctite should be sufficient though.
I'm looking at a new car, but it can't be towed 4 wheels down........so thinking of a tow dolly. I've never had one. So, I'm looking for any and all comments, pros and cons concerning the use of a tow dolly. Thanks
PS: I assume any front wheel car can be towed on a dolly, like a Ford Escape?
Anyone towing a late model Ford Explorer? I'm considering a new tow vehicle, and the Explorer suits my needs. The front wheel drives are towable 4 down. It will be my every day driver also. Any comments pros or cons are appreciated.
Interesting feedback..........here's how I handled both situations. I was relaxed, I was very calm, even joked a little with them......again, it wasn't a question of finishing the transaction and getting a receipt.....I didn't get a receipt. In the first case, all they had to do is hand me the key and they could have continued on with trying to input the computer. In the second case, she had taken my money, put it in the drawer, taken out my change and had it in her hand then tried to figure out the computer input. Could have easily given me my change and sent me on my way. Growing up in retail, we never put the money in the till, until the transaction was done........that way the customer couldn't claim they gave you a $50 when the $20 was still visible. Again, I'm just venting, I'm relaxed, and enjoying my trip. I don't care if a person makes minimum wage or $100.00 an hour......it all boils down to self worth, NOT being RUDE, and customer service. I'm betting most people given the same circumstances would have boiled over, but I'm on vacation LOL Ok, done venting LOL.
About the receipt, first off, that's their problem, not the customers. I was raised in a retail business, One of our primary objectives, was to take care of the customer, get them taken care of politely and fast as possible.
In both of the cases I sited, I DID NOT get a receipt. It all boils down to, ignoring the customer and fixating on the computer. I'll guarantee that neither of these parks had work campers. Both are large well established RV parks.
In the last couple of weeks, I've had problems with people that don't have a clue when checking in at RV parks
The other day, part of the check included an extra $10 for key deposit for the laundry room. I gave the lady a $10 bill......trouble is.......she didn't have a clue on how to enter it in the computer. I stood there while she tried to figure it out......another lady was over seeing her, obviously she was new. The trouble is, they kept playing around with the computer and made me wait. They should have just given me the key and then worried about the input on the computer. I must have literally stood there for 15 minutes before they finally figured it out....and then handed me the key. Whatever happened to customer service.
Today, I checked in, everything was prepaid....at least I thought. They informed me it would be an extra $7 for my dog, a dollar a day....no problem. This park uses tokens for the laundry room. I asked for $3.00 worth, so the total was $10, Here we go again......couldn't enter both items in the computer. Stood there while they played around with the computer. Why not just give me my change for the $20 I gave them. Nope, they have to keep doing the same thing over and over again.....with no luck. After about 10 minutes, finally, they enter the items separately, and finally give me my change, which she had in her hand the whole time. Funny part is, I was given $11 instead of just $10. Yes, I gave them back the extra $1.00. Again, why did I have to stand there, while they try to figure out the computer. This seems to be an ongoing problem, not only at RV parks, but at retail shops too. Why don't people wake up and take care of the customer first, then worry about the computer input after the customer is taken care of. I know we live in a computer world....that's not my complaint, my complaint is, when the person running the computer, makes the customer wait while they try to figure things out, especially when it's simple transaction and they can try to figure out the computer after taking care of the customer......it's basically rude. Ok, enough venting LOL.
My corian table top is fastened to the wall by a metal channel with 1/4 inch pins that the edge of the table fit into. Trouble is, the pins have come loose. What can I use to secure the edge of the table with these pins? Would epoxy work? do they make some special type of adhesion for corian? Thanks
NEW INFO: Well before I got home, the table top edge support fell off and the table top fell to the carpet.......I think I'm lucky it didn't break. Anyway, they have a medal strip that attaches to the edge of the corian. Screws go thru the medal strip and into medal anchors. The anchors all pulled out......so I need to glued these into the corian.........so what I'll be glueing is Medal anchors into corian. Suggestions? Thanks
No, it's not a generator, the generator on this one is mounted about midway back. What's a fuel cell? I was wondering about the aqua hot, but why would it keep cycling on and off every few minutes, especially in this heat. Actually I don't even think there's anyone in it this evening. The motorhome is also plugged into shore power.
I'm parked at an RV park in Las Vegas. Next to me is an older Marathon Motorhome. It's warm outside, so AC's are running, not heaters LOL. I've been stting outside I keep smelling diesel fumes........the generator is NOT running. However something in the nose of the motorhome is cycling on and off about every 5 minutes or so. Whatever it is, is very quite running and is smooth running.......nothing like a combustion engine. More like an AC unit, but quitter, and like I said, it's in the front and down low. Any idea what is running? I don't know if this is where the fumes are coming from either. If not, any idea where they might be from? Thanks
