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.

Available many places. Pricing is what it is.

RE: Self-induced "one thing after another and another..."

Momma told me there'd be days like that. I just wish she'd have warned me how many.

RE: GFCI Has no power.

Trying to troubleshoot electrical issues by looking at the outlet is kind of pointless. So is trying to troubleshoot via the internet. Get a meter, and learn how to use it.

RE: Tandem trailer towing

No jurisdiction allows for a ball coupling on the first trailer. Fifth-wheel kingpin only.

RE: TA truck wash

Company policy is to have the team lead with you in the cashier booth before the water starts. This allows them to up-sell the "extras", and give you a chance to let them know of any areas you have concerns about. Furnace vents, HWH grills, that storage bay with the broken latch, etc. Once you're paid up, you can walk through the wash bay, watching your rig under go the treatment. They won't use any sprays, cleaners, or techniques you haven't paid for, so pay attention when in the cashier booth.

RE: COSTCO no longer wants motorhomes in gas lines?

Told by a guy, that heard from a guy? Uh-huh. I don't believe that's what the OP said. Uh-huh.
