RE: Lance Propane Tank Recertification

Thanks all for the helpful comments. Sounds like I just need to take them down to the local major propane supplier and let them take a look at them and get a recertification sticker. Thanks again for the help, Brad

Lance Propane Tank Recertification

I guess this 1996 Lance camper has lasted way too long because I now need to get my REPLACEMENT propane tanks recertified before I can get them refilled. The original tanks had the old valves and I had to get new tanks many years ago. Now those tanks are "old" tanks that nobody will fill. Anyone had their 20# horizontal Lance tanks recertified? What is the process for that? I'm concerned that if they have to disassemble the tank, they are a lot more likely to screw something up than fix something that has been working perfectly for 10 or 12 years. I just love big daddy government watching over us and keeping us all safe from disaster and such; pretty soon tooth brushes will come with an arrow and direction to insert this end into mouth. Thanks for any help, Brad

RE: Simple Home Monitor Camera

They only stream when being watched (at least the Foscam's). If you set it for motion alarm, it takes a series of 5 .jpegs of the event and emails it to you. So in this case it doesn't matter the speed. It'll get there when it gets there. Thanks, that is good to know. I was reading a review on Amazon of one of them (not Foscam) and it streamed 1080 HD continuously. The guy said he used 8 times as much upload the first month he had it as he normally did. Seems like he said 250GB vs 30GB, or something like that. I'm definitely going to look into the Foscams. All I need to see is the inside of my house, a big dial thermometer and if the $20 I left on the kitchen table is still there. :) Dropcam was bought up by another company and the name was dropped.

RE: Simple Home Monitor Camera

OK, I've read up on some of the suggestions and I'm thinking I will have a problem with my slow internet connection. It is generally below 1M/s; probably about .7M/s. Those cameras seem to be just what I need, but they seem to be sending a lot of data down the wire.

RE: Simple Home Monitor Camera

If you want simple........look at Dropcam........ ...... I will look at those. I've hear people talk about "Drop Cams", but I did not know what they were talking about. Thanks, Brad

Simple Home Monitor Camera

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00XN21LX2?psc=1 Anyone use something like this to monitor their home while they are away? I'm not sure I know how it works. I want something simple. Would I have to leave my computer on for this to work? Or does just the wifi need to be on? If the power goes off and comes back on, will something like this come back up on line or does it have to be manually reset? Thanks for any help, Brad

RE: What brand of shocks have worked well for you?

You'll get a lot of answer, but for me, I have Rancho 9000's, and I like very much the fact I can adjust the valving for fully loaded vs. empty. Ditto; I've had them on all 3 camper hauling trucks we have owned. They are a huge improvement on an SRW truck hauling a truck camper. Brad

RE: $48,447

Went by and looked at that Lance 995. Very nice camper. It had some options that I did not want, so the list price would come down quite a bit. Just the generator, solar and fancy rear bumper are about $7k. Brad

RE: $48,447

Watch out I'm sure the goderator will consider this a Troll post!!! Wayne knows Brad don't troll. I'm going to look at that 995 at Ketelsen's this afternoon (currently working at the new VA Hospital going up in Aurora). Then I'm going to email Lance to see if they can put a dog window in it. Can't buy a new camper without DD's approval. We paid $15,000 for our new 9' 10" Lance in 1996. Brad

RE: Brad's New Truck

For me, retirement just created a longer list of things to do, with less of them including camping. You would think you could just finish old projects, but being retired just gives me time to think of more projects. I had more time for camping when I was working. That is exactly what I've heard at the retirement training classes I've taken: don't assume you will need less money and have more free time after you retire. Another thing to add to my "to do" list; drove my truck to work today to take back the pos tranny jack I bought from the Chinese Tool Store. Appears that my rear calipers are sticking/dragging and acording to Mr Google, that is a common problem with 2005 - 2007 F-350's. Brad

RE: Torklift Price Changes

Sounds like Browning shotguns when I was a kid. No matter where you bought one, it was the same price.

RE: Brad's New Truck

Sounds like a nice truck, but what about the new camper? ;) Thinking about that also, but haven't run across a floorplan that makes me want to flush $40,000 down the drain. May just keep what we have. Its only 19 years old and is barely broke in. Its kinda like an old pair of hiking boots that fit perfectly and you just can't find anything to replace them.

RE: Brad's New Truck

I guess I'm addicted to diesels now and will get another one even though I could probably save money getting the gasser (thank you oppressive central government regulators). I'm hooked on the power those things put out; even at high altitude out west in the mtns. If the manual trannies and V10's were still available, I would give that set up a lot of consideration. I have just started educating myself on the new Fords; what is the wide-track front axle option?

RE: Brad's New Truck

We are approaching retirement Hey Brad -- maybe you'll have enough time to be a moderator?? (if you were, you could delete this post for being off topic) It wouldn't be the first time I had to delete one of my own posts. A little bit of schizophrenia goes a long way. :) :) :)
