RE: Can't run A/C at home: solved -- see 8/21/16 update

Just cause you can run your ac from a 20 amp circut using extension cords dosent mean you should. Especially in hot ambient outside temps. How so? A 13.5K BTU A/C should be drawing not much more than 12.5A-13.5A full tilt when compressor is HOT. This IS within the "limits" of a 14 ga 15A circuit. OP is saying they have a 20A circuit so they should have 12 ga wire running to the garage outlet.. OP HAS MEASURED 119V with the A/C ON.. That IS well within operating parameters for voltage.. And by the way, for your information I have NO PROBLEM operating TWO A/C units in my TT on a 20A circuit.. AND that IS with 50ft of 10 gauge wire PLUS an additional 60ft of 12 ga wire plus the wire from the basement outlet to the breaker panel which I do not know since I use that only at my Cousins house.. I have a 10K BTU A/C unit in the rear of my trailer and a 6.5K A/C unit in the front bedroom.. That is 16.5K BTU and I CAN operate it from 20A circuit as long as my batteries are pretty well charged.. I HAVE run my A/C units AND the converter from my 3.5K portable gen which gives me 25A to work with.. OP (or anyone else) SHOULD NOT have any problems running their 13.5K A/C from a 20A circuit.. nowhere did the op say the A/C was on when measured

RE: Tire pressure

We do the same as well. We check as early in the day as possible and fill our ST tires to max psi as stated on the sidewall since ST tires are known to overheat when under-filled. ALL tires overheat when under-inflated

RE: Expandable Water Hose

I have 10', 25' and a 50' hard water hose and was thinking a "flex or expandable" water hose would take up a lot less room. good. Just wondering why you need to haul around 85 feet of water hose? You care camping in a 23 foot TT. Maybe try to downsize some of the stuff that you really don't need. Honestly, how often have you had to use the 50 footer? To answer your question...like many others, we have had no luck with the expandable water hoses either. I camp mostly in state parks without water hook up, electric only, and I carry 3 50ft handi hoses,1 standard 10 ft,1 standard 25ft. I use all quite frequently.The handi hoses last quite well, all are more than 3 years ols.

RE: antivirus programs

why trust what they give away free. when they do have a paid version, they know the worth of the "free" version Nonsensical comment. really??? Any company is in business to make money. You don't give away your best product and sell an inferior one.

RE: antivirus programs

Just for the record, I don't use a free doctor, and I don't use a free anti-virus program. Norton Internet Security Suite serves be very well. I also carry good car and homeowners insurance and have used both on rare occasion. Along the same lines, if the AV app offers a free and paid versions, why trust the paid version as the free app uses the same AV engine code base? BTW, back in early 2000, the only time my system was breached with a virus was when I was running Norton System Suite. The malware erased my system hard drive. Not to mention that Norton was heavy on PC resources, and nearly impossible to cleanly uninstall. Switched over to free anti-virus protection, AVG at that time, and have never had any of my systems taken down since. Norton has made vast improvements since those days, and now rated among the top of paid AV apps. why trust what they give away free. when they do have a paid version, they know the worth of the "free" version

RE: I need a good disposable glove solution for dumping

What kind of gloves do y'all use when you use the restroom??? When you flush the toilet in a restroom there is not a 30 gallon tank of raw sewage behind it! :W I don't put my hands in the poop, I just hold the outside of the hose, when finished, I wash my hands with soap and water

RE: Help removing city tree blocking RV/Trailer parking.

I guess nobody read where he said "It prevents their 32' 5th wheel from being able to get in the BACKYARD."not where it is presently parked. I can see where that would be a big problem.
