RE: Two Cycle oil

Or you could have used your American Express or Citibank Visa credit card for the extra 2-years on the warranty, and just bought 2-stroke oil at WalMart, LOL. Thanks Funny. Believe I will stay with Stihl.

RE: Two Cycle oil

Anyone have an idea what the weight is for 2 cycle oil is? Bought a new Stihl weed eater and a 6 pack of Stihl synthetic. Oil was $15.99 plus tax. 6 pack was 4.6 ounces each and will make 6 gallons. Purchase of a 6 pack extends warranty by 2 years. My local Rental Center is an authorized Stihl Dealer. They've offered the same deal for a couple of years... actually extends warranty to two years total. Nope- All of the below items have a 2 year warranty" FS Trimmers, Brushcutters and Clearing Saws 2 years Flexible and solid drive cables on FS trimmers, brushcutters, clearing saws, FC edgers, HL hedge trimmers, KM and MM multi-task tools, KM attachments, and fixed length HT pole pruners will be covered by limited warranty to the original retail purchaser for as long as the appropriate spare part continues to remain available from STIHL. FSE 120 Volt A.C. Electric Trimmers FC Edgers HL Extended Reach Hedge Trimmers KM Multi-Task Tools & KM Attachments MM Multi-Task Tools & MM Attachments HT Pole Pruners Fixed Length Models HT Pole Pruners Telescoping Models 2 years HS Hedge Trimmers HSE 120 Volt A.C. Electric Hedge Trimmers BG Handheld Blowers BGE 120 Volt A.C. Electric Handheld Blowers SH Shredder Vac/Blowers BR Backpack Blowers SR Backpack Sprayers BT Augers & Drill SE Vacuum Cleaners AND: Double limited warranty protection applies to most STIHL gasoline-powered products purchased for personal non-income producing household purposes only. At the time of your equipment purchase, simply purchase a 6-pack of STIHL HP Ultra Oil (any size containers) or a minimum of 1-gallon of STIHL MotoMix® premixed fuel to qualify for the double limited warranty coverage. STIHL HP Ultra Oil and STIHL MotoMix® premixed fuel provide for improved engine longevity. Other restrictions apply. See Dealer for details.

RE: Two Cycle oil

OOOPS The correct quantity is 2.6 oz. per gallon. I have used straight 30W for chain lube on my chain saws. The Stihl oil is synthetic and is thinner than the 2 cycle oil I have used in the past. Wizard made a good point that I had not thought of. Outboard 2 cycle oil, IIRC. was a thinner oil. Also I have read that the outboard oil should be low ash less for cleaner burning. I have also read that CJ-4 oil is low ash.

RE: TV tire query

Cooper HT3 here. 25,000 miles with over half of tread left. Lot's of good tires available without having to buy the Michelin or Duravis. Every tire has had issues at one time or another. OEM Firestone HT were at wear bars at 25,000 miles. Bridgestone's OEM's on previous truck did not last 30,000 miles. As stated above, not all tires have a mileage warranty. The Cooper HT3 have a 50,000 mile warranty with other Coopers having varying warranties.

RE: nose of trailer made contact with cab of truck

Only 37 degree when turning. Something wrong with that. Square nosed 5er Short Bed, short pin box = TROUBLE!!! Not only is that 5vr 'square nosed' it is 'v' shaped going forward Come on guys. Unable to make a turn greater than 37 degrees? That is equivalent to almost no turning if their is any type of unevenness. Previous owner used a short box and no comment on an issue with his and OP is having a problem with his "new" short bed truck. Wouldn't this suggest an issue with mounting of the hitch?

RE: Keystone Fail-Sky River RV Fail

Camper will be 2 years old in August so out of warranty period although it is obvious this is a factory defect and should be repaired by the factory with a new roof. I am not familiar with the type of "pan" you have on that AC but all that I have seen have a foam cushion and are held down by bolts through the roof and no lip such as yours. If that is your AC that would explain why the roof is cut because of the bouncing that would occur going down the road. It is also obvious that the dealer has no idea how to repair and would never see my camper again. Looks like no screws were used during installation. I would check carefully for damage to the wood, clean the Dicor off, attach with screws, cover with Eternabond and lay a bead of self-leveling Dicor along the seams.

RE: 30 Amp Elec plug/ is this straight forward fix?

I used electrical tape. The kind that is rubbery. Can't remember the official name. I stretch it to half it's original width as I wrap it on. When finished the end will adhere to the rest.

RE: Tire Traker or Tire Safeguard?

Look carefully at all of the brands and how they work and how they program. I suspect you will not be able to tell the difference between them.

RE: galley holding tank drain handle

Lost the handle on my Crusader within the first 6 months.. Called Prime Time and they sent me new handles-all 3-with a small vial of Locktite. Working after 3 years.

RE: Shower

It is normal to caulk the outside only on a shower track - simple reason; The tracks often collect water during showering. If the inside of the track is caulked, water may accumulate in the track and cause nasty things to happen. Thus the outside is caulked to prevent water from getting outside the shower. Any water that gets inside the track is designed to flow back into the shower. Yep-Shouldn't the horizontal openings also be towards the inside so water can drain back into shower? Lee wordsdell stated his was on the outside.

RE: Trailer brake wiring question( Mystery Now Solved)

The wiring to the rear of the brake drums is only connected on the driver's side. The wires coming out of the back of the drums on the other side are taped off. If the wires coming out of the back are taped off- those brakes did not get hooked up. That would concern me on a new rig (what else did they forget?). Follow Chris' advice. I am surprised that no one else caught the fact that the brakes are not tied into the wiring. Although run through axles they must exit and tie into the brakes at the back of the drums. There is no other way to wire the magnets.

RE: Beer can pickups

After the aluminum Ford got the highest rating in the front crash test and Chevy got a lower rating, they had to come up with something to try to save face. Not all Fords are created equal. There have been reports here and elsewhere that not all trucks had the reinforcement in the doors that increased the protection.

RE: No more BFG for me...

Some people have better luck with warranty and adjustments than others. BFG would go a long way in building better relations with customers if they would help mediate issues with dealers who will not/don't want to help. Yes-I know-most manufacturers fail to do the same

RE: Couldnt get cable tv to work

Did you do a channel scan while on cable? It just said no signal, so I did not. Although it says there is no signal your remote will still operate the TV. Go to the "menu" on your remote. Select it and it will bring up many options for setting up the TV. You are looking for an onscreen menu to select either cable or antenna. You must select cable and then run a scan to find your channels. When on over the air you have to change the TV back to antenna. Don't be afraid to ask any of the guest or management to help.
