RE: Hotmail will not allow me to log in to my account . . . .

Not e-mail related but I am not very computer literate anyway but do you have a pop-up blocker being used. When I started using my new computer I had problems logging into several sites. I would enter user I.D. and password but nothing happened. Looking around on the screen I saw the pop up blocker with a red circle and slanted red bar. Once I clicked in it to allow the pop up my problem went away.

RE: 2104 Silverado LTZ - Bluetooth question

Flip phone works with 2 vehicles but not a third?. Thinking something is wrong. Wife and I have flip phones and both are 2 years old. After I start my 2013 Chevy 2500 or my 2014 Impala, the dash will chime and when I look down it tells me that Blue Tooth is enabled and I receive my calls through the vehicle. Incoming calls show the phone number and name. Salesman paired my flip phone to my truck but I paired it to my car. Perhaps it is not paired correctly. Maybe the owners manual will help if he has not checked it yet. I have Verizon.

RE: Replacing Brake Magnet Problem

Cut off a little where the slit is. I suspect the slit is hitting each side and not allowing the outside to compress enough. Dab a little silicone sealant or what ever you have handy if it is too loose.

RE: There will be a High Country HD!

$45k for a 2wd light duty truck. not going to sell too many of them i'll bet. Crazy. I'm with you but I see highly optioned 1/2 ton on dealer lots that cost more than my 2500 D/A LT. Seems like all the 1/2 ton gassers have models that are crowding prices that were not too longer ago reserved for diesels.

RE: Brake and Bearing Specs for Dutchmen 5th W Colorado, 31RL

Look on the side of your rig and elsewhere to see if you can find axle rating. That info. will help us provide the bearing sizes. Drum size determines brake size.

RE: EL Camino

Old Biscuit-I agree. Saw one today at a store and that thing is too long, too low and not much good for anything.

RE: EL Camino

IMO it is unfortunate for the El Camino and perhaps what he is doing. Sometimes buys and does things on the impulse. We have a common friend that has a body shop who is working on it in his spare time to keep costs low. He has purchased new rims and tires. Don't know what to call them but they are the skinny (?) type seen on sports cars. New chrome exhaust headers and pipes and I wonder what else. Says he is going to paint it black and that appears to me that that would not be a period color. I expect it to be a nice vehicle but not what I would call a true restoration. Maybe it's me bit if I would be restoring I would want everything original.

EL Camino

Friend is restoring a 1974 El Camino. Unfortunately, that is the model year with the hardest to find parts. He is in need of the chrome strip over the tail gate and has been unable to find one. Anyone got any sources?

RE: Tranny cooler question

When was the radiator/cooling system checked for road debris, bugs and other stuff?

RE: Air bags, add a leaf, or overload springs

I had a 2007 Savoy 32SKT LT. Great rig. At that time I had a 2006 with 9200 towing capacity. Everything was under all weights. Unless you have bad shocks or weak springs I would follow others advice about hooking up and then checking before spending any money. My 2006 settled down 2" when fully loaded and hooked up.

RE: Blank Screen LaptopUPDATE!!!!

When booting before removal of the battery and power source there was absolutely no sound during the process. I determined that the system was booting because the hard drive would be warm after a few minutes.

RE: Blank Screen LaptopUPDATE!!!!

After doing a little research on the internet I shut it down, removed the power cable and battery and holding the power button for 30 seconds. Reinstalled and all seems to be working at this time.

RE: To Cruise or Not To Cruise

Tow Haul, exhaust brake and you are going to love the built in brake controller. Even better than the Prodigy that I had.

RE: Any input on Crusader?

2013 model 330MKS-Will be two years in late July. Over 10,000 miles with no issue BUT there is a know issue with wear/tearing on the bottom of the slides with Darco wrap where the rollers contact.. With the Darco, there may be an issue will water seeping through the edge of the Darco if not watched carefully. Members on the Primetime forum has been asking for months about repairs, modification or what Primetime is going to do about it but Primetime has remained silent. One of the Mods., RV Guy used to be active but since the questions started he has disappeared. I believe the Crusader offers a lot for the money and quality is good as any unit in that price range. Lot's of frustration. Go to the Primetime forum and search for a post by Platokidd under this topic "Slide out /underside wearing " Many posters comment about the good factory service but there are 24 pages of comments and Primetime has been silent.

RE: Used TV pricing 2013 Diesel

There was a news story last year and I think it was Chevy. They were going to raise their sticker prices so they could offer larger discounts to fool the gullible buyers who like to brag about how much they talked the dealer down. Not unique to Chevy. They all do it. Texas is bombarded with Ford commercials offering rebates of $10,000 on remaining 2013.

RE: Blank Screen LaptopUPDATE!!!!

I am assuming the discs are booting. When I install one I hear the normal gyrations and then the disc spinning. Screen remains black.

Blank Screen LaptopUPDATE!!!!

I had recently posted about my Toshiba not loading. "Computer won't load? starting March 14. I seemed to have resolved the problem with the exception of losing all my bookmarks. In the process of reinstalling bookmarks and the recovery discs that I had made when new I encountered another problem. I was also going to see if I could recover anything from my portable hard drive. During a lapse in doing anything the computer went into the sleep mode that was part of the standard operation. It would awake when I tapped a key or moved the mouse. The last time I hit a key pad or moved the mouse nothing happened. Black screen. I could feel the heat from the hard drive so it seemed to be performing some activity. I used the power button to shut down. During a power up the machine seemed to start and I could hear the cd/dvd drive working but nothing beyond a black screen. During several attempts to power up, I used F2, F12 and F8 bit still nothing beyond a black screen, a warm hard drive and CD drive running. Edit: Prior to the latest issue I was able to use normally, red email and use other internet functions. Between the resumption of normal functions with the exception of bookmarks and loading recovery discs and before the latest issues that Microsoft installed 49 updates. I have been reading about Microsoft updates creating issues for some.

RE: ST235/80R16 Tire Replacement

Those Goodrich recommended earlier have a voluntary safety recall too... Go Here The tires were produced between April 2010 and the end of July 2012. - Sizes are: LT 235/85 R16 120 Q LRE and LT 245/75 R16 120 Q LRE. If you have them check it out... old old info and was posted in the summer of '12 May be old but there are trailers out there with those tires still on them. I spotted one just last fall and told the owner about it...he had no clue. A good reason that when you buy new tires to go to the manufacturers web site and register those tires yourself. I have found that many shops fail to do so and the manufacturer does not know who bought their tires thus many people are unaware of a recall. I purchased a new BFG after a belt failed and did not know of a recall until I read it on this forum months later. Heck, I had to tell the local BFG/Michelin about it.
