RE: Myth that socket extensions change torque wrench readings

It only changes the torque if you add length, like a crows foot. If it's just a normal extension to get to a deeper bolt/nut then no toque difference. That's what I've always understood- extensions like this: http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/31XAsWzKkVL._SY300_.jpg require calculation for proper torque. Correct and there is a formula for setting the right torque on an adjustable or the reading on a bar type wrench. The following formula has been used: M1 = M2 x L1 / L2 Where: M1 is the torque setting of the wrench. M2 is the actual torque applied to the nut L1 is the normal length of the wrench L2 is the extended length of the wrench Marvin If you hook that Crow Foot to come off the side, at a right angle you are not adding any length to the torque wrench.

RE: Electrical problem

Sounds like the original solenoid died and you replaced it with one that was not a continuous duty.

RE: Another Stupid Leveling Question.

One thing that I've found that helps is to keep my foot off the brake petal. It's hard not to, because you know you need to stop as soon as you reach you reach the top of the block. Dusty

RE: GFI Again

I would guess that somewhere in your RV the neutral, white wire, and ground, green wire, are touching. Use a volt/ohm meter. With your rig unplugged check for continuity between the ground and neutral prongs on the plug on the shore power cord. There should NOT be any continuity between them.

RE: Sewer connection rework project.

I've taken solvent welded fittings apart a few times. Always only saved one of the 2 fittings, the female one. I've never tried to save the male fitting, but I believe I could. Don't believe both pieces could be saved. Dusty

RE: stabilizer/anti-sway bushing

No outer steel sleeve. I had to drive the rubber bushing in with a hammer. The R-bushing is shaped like a top hat with the top missing. What I would really like to know, will that J.B. Weld hold it, or do I need to do something different ? Dusty

stabilizer/anti-sway bushing

We have 2002 E-350 under our 24' Itasca. The rubber stabilizer bushing came out of the left front axel, It slid up the stabilizer. How are they held in ? I used J.B. Weld to glue it in, and it has held for about 350 miles. Thanks, Dusty

RE: Have A Major Made In China Purchase In Mind?

How many $ do we/US Government owe China? What if they decide they need it all right now?

RE: Ford Fuel pump rant

What is the average miles when the fuel pumps quits? Should one change the pump at a given miles or age, to prevent being stranded? Dusty

RE: Two small modifications - 2007 Itasca Navion

I've wondered if the T/P valve was designed that way so if it opened due to high temperature, it would put the fire in the burner out.

RE: NEMA 14-30R (not 14-30P) to TT-30R?

In VAC terms... WHITE is ALWAYS Neutral GREEN is ALWAYS Ground ANY OTHER COLOR is ALWAYS HOT! ALWAYS use a tester to VERIFY and turn OFF power before playing with it....Dennis Seldom seen but GREY is also always Neutral. Dusty

RE: Sewer Bumper

Our Itasca got rear ended. Dealer fixed it, insurance paid for it. It's made of aluminum.

RE: preferred tire brand

Each his own. I don't care for Michelin. Right now we are running on Firestone.

RE: Roof Racks most have

unless some think they're decorative or something.The look reminds me of a swimming pool ladder. :) Not exactly the look for my taste. http://tweetys.com/images/products/detail/924644.jpg height=300 Some people like to hang chairs and bikes off the ladder. For those people, a full-wall ladder-like rack would be stronger and more versatile. We have a 24' '03 Itasca with a ladder like that, it also has a fiber glass roof. I built a pair carriers, much like roof top carriers for cars but fastened to the fiber glass roof, to carry my 17' Kevlar canoe that weights 47 lbs. I temporally fasten a piece of unistrut to the top flat part of the ladder to drag the canoe up to the roof. Also when we are dry camping and need to add water, we carry it in a 5 gallon bag, then hang the bag from the unistrut so it can drain into tank in the mh. Dusty

RE: Roof Racks most have

You didn't say what type of roof you have. Our mh has a fiberglass roof. I added a carrier for my Kevlar canoe. If you have a fiberglass roof, West Marine has a page on fastening to fiberglass. If you don't find it, I'll try to explain.

Lavatory sink

Someone posted that the hot water flow to their lavatory sink was slow. Ours had been that way for a couple of years. Yesterday I took the faucet off the sink, and took it apart. There is a screen just before the hot and cold valves. on ours the screen on the hot side was about 99% plugged. It didn't look like they would come out without being destroyed, so I sprayed water through them and also used the air hose on them. There are a couple of washer in there that keep the valve from coming apart, they need to be remove before you use a wrench to take the valve assembly out. It works great now, full water flow. Dusty

RE: CL scams

We/I had been looking for a different home for many years. I had 4 things that I wanted in our new, to us, home. After the many years of looking, I found one on, of all places, Craigslist. I had 4 things that I wanted in a new place, we got 3 of the 4. We've been in the new place for 2-1/2 years.

RE: generac generators

As of ~2011, Generac generators were discontinued for RVs. I think there is a market niche available. If someone could make a generator that used EFI, an inverter (so the genset could run at an idle), and perhaps a small battery to absorb load until the engine got up to speed, they would make a mint. Even a generator going with four poles instead of two would be nice (1800 RPM instead of 3600), or using oil pressure instead of splash lubricating. Several years ago I saw a 1800 RPM and also a 1200 RPM, in two different MHs.

RE: Chevy cut away chassis putting gas in

I had the same problem on my 'C' on a Ford Chassis. The filler tube is too small to take gas at 'full open' because the gas rises up in the filler tube and shuts the pump off. So I don't push the nozzle all the way in and don't lock the lever all the way open. It gives me a chance to use their bathroom facilities instead of mine. :) Most places it's posted that someone must keep the nozzle in sight at all times while filling.
