RE: Info On Costco Visa Card

So on our Alaska trip we get to Grande Prairie AB. Go to Costco for the really good Diesel fuel price at one of the few Costco's with diesel fuel. . When I get to Costco gas station they will not take US Costco Visa, not the store either. No cash either at pump. Only master charge. I was led to believe on this forum that Visa, not Master Charge was the prevalent card in Canada? Costco savings in Grande Prairie are highly over-rated. The same price is available at any of the grocery stores with fuel stations in town. They all price match each other, with additional savings available for use in-store. The "No-Frills store on the south side of town has a tighter lot for pulling a trailer around in, where-as the south side Safeway has the better lot of this chains lots. The Superstore on the north end has probably the most open lot of all the grocery/fuel lots.

RE: Fort Wayne to Denver

Doesn't seem like either route would be too technically challenging. Perhaps better suited to "Roads & Routes" section?

RE: Mor Ryde Step Above

Guessing it's these. Not really a fan of having to store wet or muddy steps inside, but it might be just me.

RE: Beverage trailer conversion

Local ones have the racking that supports the cases of bottles as an integral spine to support the weight. Eats up a lot of internal room, and cuts the trailer in half length-wise.

RE: Broken Gray discharge pipe

Black is ABS. Home Depot, Lowes, Ace, etc. Uses yellow glue and I prefer to use a primer first.

RE: AZ 3 axles or less fuel pumps

In Arizona, there is a different tax charged for light duty vehicles than heavies. The sticker is on every pump in the state, in an effort to stop road tractors from using lower tax fuel. The trailer axles are not counted, only the power unit. If you have a retired highway tractor with rear tandems for personal use, and use the local Fry's fuel pumps, you DO run the risk of being offered the opportunity to explain to a judge why you need lower tax fuel. It's a low risk, but it is there.

RE: Solar Expert Component Review Requested

Also not a fan of the glued down bendable panels. Way too expensive on a per watt basis, too fragile for extended use. The covering tends to haze, cutting production further. Heat also cuts production, so stuck to the roof yields a hotter panel than one elevated above it.

RE: Dish network remote.

Replace the wood door front with mesh or screen. Helps get the heat away from the electronics, too.

RE: James Bay Road

That's pretty much winter road territory. Too much swamp and muskeg for year-round road.

RE: How to find proper tire pressure for tow vehicle?

B. F. Goodrich has an online table for weights/pressures for their tires. Weigh the unit, the use the table to set the pressures.

RE: Renogy Solar thinking about getting into Lithium systems

It'll be over-priced, and over-hyped.

RE: Adding additional solar panel

Thanks in advance as always folks! I have a Zamp Deluxe 160W Solar kit installed on my 24ft class C. It has one 160W panel on the roof with a junction box on the roof already wired to the charge controller to easily add more panels. My question is when I decide to add another panel, say a 100W panel, do I need to add the same panel (Zamp mono) or can I add some other brand? Any special considerations when choosing? Thanks again! Matching panels are not required. The charge controller can't tell what brand or how many watts a panel has. Except matching panels will give the best bang for the buck.

RE: A little confused about winterizing

You have a three valve bypass system, and all that is required is to change each valve to the opposite setting to go from normal to winter bypass. This is actually the most robust version, trust me I have the single valve and one of my check valves gave it up this year. You have no check valves in this configuration. Look again.

RE: Finding propane

Available many places. Pricing is what it is.
