RE: Running a portable Gen in my built-in Gen space

Be sure there is no way the compartment lid can close. I saw an off grid cabin burn to the ground because the generator cabinet closed accidentally. Genset overheated and caught fire.

RE: Cut TV Cord, How to Get News

https://news.google.com/#pcid=FRONTPAGE You can customize the Google news to feed you areas of interest such as biz or sports or tech, and you can select towns and get feeds from places you are interested in. I also find some international sources a welcome contrast, such as the South China Morning Post. http://www.scmp.com/frontpage/international There's more news out there than you can consume.

RE: NEVER call for a tire- RIP OFF

The amount of the charge does seem to be over the top but consider this: If you go to a convenience store and buy a 20oz bottle of Coke and pay $1.29 when you could have bought it at Wally World in a six pack for $4.90($0.82ea); Were you ripped off? Directly from the benefits brochure: "On occasion and whenever possible, we will make arrangements for the Member or Associate to purchase a tire(s) for delivery to the disablement scene. In these cases Good Sam Platinum+ Roadside Assistance will pay for delivery of the tire only, Member is responsible for all additional costs including cost of tire(s), mounting, balancing, other parts or labor, tax and any other fees. Note: This benefit does not include seasonal tire changes. Member or Associate is responsible for all parts and labor." The "other fees" probably covers a multitude of possibilities including the tire dealer charging a higher price through GS to cover what he pays GS for the referral or making up the discounted service fee he gets from GS. Since you went directly he gets to look like the hero by charging his normal price because he didn't have to pay GS or discount anything. Again, I think the markup is excessive but it is not an unusual business practice. I disagree; the expected benefit from joining an affiliate group is to benefit from volume business, group discounts, negotiated terms in advance etc. Not to pay exorbitant markups in adverse circumstances. "Good Sam"? A particularly ironic name for the practitioners of such price gouging as described by the OP.

RE: Lift pump issues

The lift pump should maintain positive pressure to the VP44 at all times. LP failure is the leading killer for that injection pump.

RE: Forwarding Mail - a cautionary tale...

USPS is notoriously unreliable. We take our mailbox down when we are on the road so they can't leave mail.

RE: Worst dealer experience ever - price change

Closed the deal, but you're not done. Happy with the unit but chewing over your bitterness and working up your bad reviews. Seems to me the seller and customer are well matched. The dealer may have done some incremental reputation damage to themselves, and you've ensured you'll have a bitter aftertaste for this coach evermore. Seems equitable.

RE: An Apology to my Canadian Neighbors

I don't agree that guns are necessary to travel safely in the USA. That's not supported by facts. I, too, have a significant collection of firearms.

RE: Airing up after sandy roads: a decent inflator from Costco

I aired my dually down to 20 psi many times.

RE: Portable Generator - EMS - seeking ideas?

So, a unit designed to protect you from power variations will fail if it doesn't get clean power???

RE: Unhitching SuperGlide hitch with truck at an angle

I unhooked a few time at large angles. Pull the latch and lift the pin straight up off the fifth wheel with the landing gear. Not easy to hitch up that way, usually I could reposition the truck and back straight in later.

RE: Isuzu crew cab

215 hp 485 # ft That's all the power my first Dodge Cummins had.

RE: setting brake sensitivity

RVi is remotely adjustable for both sensitivity and force to apply. That's why I like it.

RE: General Question: Audio Drivetrain Alarms

Murphy is the brand I'm familiar with, I see them on eBay and Amazon. Does your toad have OBD II? http://ultra-gauge.com/ultragauge/TEN/alarms.htm

RE: blocking phone numbers

I'll be getting an app soon that can block whole exchanges. There are robocallers who call me frequently and they spoof numbers that are in your home exchange. Useless to block the number, because next time it's a different number. And the numbers don't work if you call them back. FCC needs to get tough and enforce the laws. Personally I say make robo calling a capital crime.

RE: Ride difference between a F250 and and F450?

Those hard 19.5 tires will be the most discernible difference.

RE: How to wire a breakaway switch alarm??

Easy enough to do with a 12v relay. But it also introduces an additional failure point in your emergency breakaway system.

RE: E 85

What I can't figure out is that a Green handle or a Yellow handle or a Black handle has to cost the exact same amount. So, why in the World do you not have the right color on the right nozzle? Are you really so that stupid and if so, how did you manage to become an fuel station owner? Minority / Female / Refugee owner? Not sure but it must be something! Nice little rant. And somehow majority male residents can afford motorhomes yet fail at reading comprehension. Anyone buys fuel by color...

RE: "Long boondockers" leave trash; forests restricted

It's not that hard, just enforce the litter laws. The same ranger who could ask for a permit can cite for littering.
