RE: Changing t12 fluorescent to t8

Changed the 100 or so T12 ballasts and bulb fixtures in our church to T8 ballasts and bulbs, Not only are they more efficient but we now use only 2 bulbs instead of the 4 per fixture. Everyone agrees that we have the same light output. Received a grant from the local utility that paid for most of it.

RE: Propane leak

I just found a leak on one of my tanks prior to this trip. Could smell it and found that the crimp below the nut on the hose between the tank and regulator had a small leak.

RE: Breaking wheel studs

Another thing to check is make sure your lug nuts are the proper ones for your wheels. The angle of the bevel needs to match that of the wheel. The wrong lug nuts can cause stud damage. Happened to me. I was slowed for traffic and heard an unusual noise. Two broken studs and the rest loose. Taper w as correct but the hex portion of the nut was larger than the recess so the hex hit before the nut seated.

RE: Buying DEF - where?

Someone in a prior post said that a Walmart had received a returned DEF box and found that it had been refilled with plain water. I always check the seal now. OP, sorry for hijacking your post but I felt it important enough to mention and hope you didn't mind. BTW, I get my DEF from Walmart and keep an extra box either in my garage or bed of the truck while traveling long distance. An excellent point to beware of. Be certain that the secondary seal is intact. I got burned on a 5 quart container of oil that I had purchased for an oil change.. Had used oil in it.

RE: Brand new 2014. What % discount?

Excursion makes me believe you are dealing with Dixie in Hammond. I have found they have inflated pricing and don't trust their MSRP. May not be factory MSRP. You are also dealing with probably what is the worst service department in the RV business and shady salespersons. They blame Camping World and Camping World. Camping World blames them. Edited for terrible spelling and grammer

RE: What was Ram thinking

That is a GAWD AWFUL grille! The grille is not near as bad as the tailgate! Tail gate and lights remind me of a Ford tailgate

RE: Actual cost of repairing aluminum F150

So call the ford parts desk and prove everybody wrong Perhaps you could do me a favor and get pricing for Aluminum vs. steel and post it. The You Tube that I could not remember was posted by Edmunds and involved a sledge hammer and had the work performed by a Ford dealer.

RE: Actual cost of repairing aluminum F150

Interesting quote from the CR article: "However, Consumer Reports’ own analysis shows that the aluminum parts on the F-150 cost about the same as steel parts on last year's truck, and because the new F-150 is designed to make replacing panels easier, in many cases labor charges may be lower." And you believe CR? I have seen several You Tube videos fro reputable (?) sources that say just the opposite.

RE: Actual cost of repairing aluminum F150

Aaaaaa so that's GM's plan!!! To make their next truck out of titanium!! Now that will foil Fords plan to dominate the world! (of course a truck will then cost me 4.5 million dollars and drive insurance rates up even more) :M I heard Ford also bought Geico when they bought Cummings? :B Those guy's at Ford are really smart!! Well if they bought Cummings at least they didn't buy Cummin's Diesel engines.

RE: Aluminum body on F150

Saw a YouTube video the other day-wish I had kept it-that showed a guy using a sledge hammer on a new aluminum body. Two blows on the right rear quarter panel. They took it to a body shop and upon it's return commented how perfect the repair was and how the paint matched beautifully. They also stated that it took twice the time and twice the labor to repair over a metal body. Er...aluminum is a metal, dude. Dude-What's your point? Sure it is a metal. Would you feel better if I said steel vs. aluminum?

RE: Will It EVER Be Built??

It's gotten to be almost impossible to start a car company in the US. The initial cash outlay is unbelievable for production facilities and the big three are firmly entrenched and politically powerful. They're the reason that Toyota doesn't sell a 3/4 ton truck in the US. They pushed legislation to prevent foreign companies from entering the big truck market. What?

RE: not so fantastic vent

While you are up there add a little Silicone to the sealing gasket. Keeps it from sticking.

RE: 2015 Silveradoes and Sierras

When I subscribed to Consumer Reports I got a survey every year. I always embellished the imports-especially Toyota. If you read by answers you would thing that Toyota was the biggest piece of just ever produced. Never owned a Toyota. I think it is just as any poll. Ones who have a particular vehicle and have always favored it would give a positive review. Some who don't like a particular brand will denigrate it. I think that may be especially true with the GM twins and their other vehicles. Many still are bitter about the bailout.

RE: Wed. 02/04/15 NSD (National Signing Day) College Football

LSU will be weak at replacing defensive lineman. Strong on DB's and of course the running game. No help at QB. Offensively I see another year of struggles.

RE: Electric brakes

Need help understanding the following: Can brake shoes still be loose even though each shoe is receiving full voltage? Seems to me that full voltage is good but does not ensure correctly adjusted brakes. Does not being able to turn the wheel when elevated mean that the shoe is adjusted properly? I tried that once-could not turn the shoe but rig was not stopping properly with all 4 brakes. No grease or oil on shoes.

RE: Go Patriots !!!

The way Seattle designed that play to run was for the other receiver on the same side to push the defensive back backwards to the end zone. That would force the second defensive player-in this case Butler-to take a longer route to the receiver he was supposed to cover. A quick strike to the goal line and the receiver scores. It all worked except the other receiver did not push his defender back. This gave Butler exactly the time he needed to intercept.

RE: Go Patriots !!!

Has any other player ever been ejected from a Super Bowl? I think I've watched all 49, but can't remember anyone else being thrown out. I really liked that the refs penalized 'the instigator' of the fight. Usually it's the second or third guy to respond who gets the penalty. I have just seen 2 clips of the fight on MSN. Don't care for either team but Bronkowski started iot when he hit #35 in the back of the head. Irvin then hit Bronkowski.
