RE: running lights on cars and trucks

We have many laws in the US that we don't need, however, I'm all for LIGHTS ON 24 hrs a day for several reasons. 1. Easier to see some color vehicles are in an area with a similar background color. 2. To make up for fools that don't know the law about headlights on before sunup and after sundown. 3. The other fools that don't know the in-climate weather rule. I have driven with lights on 24 hrs for years and think it should be an ENFORCED law.

RE: torque wrench

HF for lug nuts is fine----------------who cares if it is calibrated only to 5# + or - ? I checked my 1/2 in drive HF and it was within 4# throughout the range. You can also use a 4 foot extension on a pull handle and a pair of scales. ie: Stand on scales and pull up 'til you add 50# and you have applied 200# torque (Approx). It ain't rocket science folks.

RE: Spare tire

I will NOT drive any vehicle or pull any trailer without a serviceable spare. Generally someone is always willing to help you change a tire.

RE: Heavy Duty Kill A Watt Project Completed - see pix

MrWizzard, I guess I'm dumb but what is the purpose of this contraption. Is it for you HIGH TECH guys or does the average (once in a while) camper need it? Thanks,

RE: Hitchhiker

I haven't picked up a hitch hiker since around 1957 and will never do so again.

RE: LP Generator and extra tank (Solved)

After looking at my system I think the best way is to add a "T" after the regulator, as cmeade suggested, and put a separate regulator and a valve in the line on the 30# tank. That way I can remove the 30# and refill and still have the frame tank available. I have a 22 gallon frame tank----how does that relate to pounds? Marvin PS, I found my answer. http://www.missiongas.com/lpgbottledimensions.htm

RE: LP Generator and extra tank (Solved)

Thanks everyone. cmeade, your idea will work but I must have a closer look at my system. I just want one regulator and be able to switch back and forth. I know I would need a high pressure line to go from 30# tank to regulator and I would have to have two shut off valves installed. Thanks, Marvin

LP Generator and extra tank (Solved)

I have an LP gen and want a kit so I can hook up and extra tank to my system and preserve the frame tank. I have seen kits to use with a BBQ but I don't want that. I will carry a 30# reserve tank with me. Any ideas?

RE: Full or empty water tank

If you drive a $100K RV and worry about minuscule changes in MPG, then you have other problems. Trade your RV on a VW and stay home. Marvin

RE: In a pinch and need to make a fire...?

Neat idea. As a Boy Scout we used 'D' batteries and Steel Wool Yep, steel wool and a 9volt battery will do good for backpackers.

RE: Full or empty water tank

I would never think of traveling with an empty tank.

RE: What kind/make wall hugger chairs?

Thanks, Our Daughter suggested that we look for Lazy Boy 2 for 1 price sales. I can get them into the RV even if I have to remove the passenger seat in the Sprinter. BTW----Wife is real picky about comfort. smiles Marvin

What kind/make wall hugger chairs?

When we bought the RV the silly looking dinette seemed OK, but now not so much. We would like to remove it and replace with two wall huger chairs. Any ideas for not so humongous chairs. Here is where they will go once this is removed. http://i938.photobucket.com/albums/ad222/GA_Boy/Coachman/Seat%202%202_zpsdvmuwrnu.png

RE: 2 RVs?

We had this setup for a few years when we worked on the road. Not seen in picture is the Wife's Oldsmobile. http://i938.photobucket.com/albums/ad222/GA_Boy/St.%20Augustine%20KOA_zpsql1pxqaf.jpg

RE: Forest River motor homes

Bought ours used and are happy with it. As with any product you may get a lemon but on average our old Coachman 5th wheeler and out FR Coachman Freelander seem well built. Not top of the line by any standard (Well maybe Yugo) but a product worth the money IMO.
