RE: Ford V-10 or Chevy V-8

F First On Recreational Day. O Once you own one you want to keep it. R Really good at pulling the load. D Don't need a mechanic to follow you around. You guessed it, I'm a FORD guy. Nothing wrong with the Chevy either but I think GM is on hard times and Support may not always be there. Marvin

RE: toilet paper

We use whatever we have at home. Right now it is Scott 1000. No reason to buy the expensive RV TP Unless you are just trying to get rid of your money faster. :)

RE: Intervec Falcon 170 parts needed

Both of my hose holders are underneath and not as low to the ground as the Sewer dump valves.

RE: Did your summer travel plans work out?

NOT AT ALL----------------------LOL A double Knee replacement July 7th put a halt to all our plans. At best we are hoping for a Surf Fishing trip to Flagler Beach in October. Right now I have very limited range in the knees. M

RE: Intervec Falcon 170 parts needed

You will probably have to replace the electric cord box with a new type Unless you find one in a salvage yard, which is doubtful. You would have to enlarge the hole for this one. Clicky I don't use the fan in my '88Horizon so I can't help there except to say you can always upgrade with a new one. Clicky Sink cover-check here.Clicky Hose holder. I think the 21" will hold a 10' hose plus ends. I made an extension for mine plus added a second one so I can carry 30' of hose. Have fun.

RE: Want to buy a Class B, What Model?

RE: Send/Receiving Fax Using Cell Phone.. Can I?

I just take a photo of a document with my I phone and email it to the recipient. They can enlarge, or print it if they wish.Do that. Any business still using fax is stuck in the 1990s. And if they won't accept the email method, they were born in the 1890s. Not positive but I think my VA uses FAX only and not E-Mail.

RE: Installing 12 v power port; Question

Best to avoid a 12v power/ciggy plug altogether whenever possible. They just waste the battery by making heat, and powering that annoying inverter alarm. Right on---------------I have two in my RV, one to charge phones and one close to the batteries to check voltage. I wouldn't run an inverter on one unless it was an emergency.

RE: Need some real life advice

I run load range E on my F250 and my fiver when I was pulling my fiver and the rear tires were maxed out I had Zero problems with them and still running them. I will take Firestone over Michelin for the price alone as the life expectancy is about the same. I have noticed that the Michelin's seam to have softer sidewalls and I certainly don't need that. To each his own.

RE: RV life expectancy

We full timed in a 1999 Coachman 365 island kitchen, 3 slide outs for 8 years. Got water damage and never was the same. http://i938.photobucket.com/albums/ad222/GA_Boy/CarTrkCamperSideView_zps2085f0fc.jpg]Clicky

RE: Wireless head phones

Thanks Vet Man I will research them. Can you use one set of batteries while charging the other? Are the Bats. AAA---AA or just for the Sony? I use a lot of AAA and AA rechargeables.

Wireless head phones

I need a good set and not sure how long the batteries last. My example looks rather cheap. I do have a slight hearing impairment. I have been using regular head phones with a cable running from TV to HP for watching. Any and all suggestions will be appreciated. Clicky

RE: Why check temp on tires? Really necessary?

I check tires and bearings but not every stop. Usually once per 500 miles. When I was pulling my fiver with auto behind I checked all tires and trailer bearings. Never had to worry about truck bearings.

RE: Eroding rubber hoses in the power sterring system

Most large parts stores can make up hydraulic, A/C, and other type hoses. They need a sample of the fittings, the dimensions and the pressure requirement on Hydraulic hoses and can make them for you. I would certainly purge the system and replace with new fluid.

RE: Dish Satellite Signal Meter

The signal meter in the Dish receiver works for me also. I use a cheap in line meter to get close and then use the receiver and TV to fine tune. I'm close though and can adjust the antenna and see the TV or wife will give me a one second apart count of the strength meter registered on the TV sometimes.

RE: Dish Satellite Signal Meter

Not to hijack the thread, but where did you find the info to program the SF-500? It should be in the manual that came with it.

RE: This bridge is still in the USA today ????

I wonder why the RED TAPE guys haven't allowed the road surface to be lowered 18 inches?
