RE: water pump blips

Easy to take care of, just turn the switch off till you need it.

RE: Better lower overload spacers

My experience with hockey pucks is they break in half way too soon.

RE: Illegal GPS mounting

"badge lickers". Good grief

RE: Just got a hitch mount for my Honda 2000

Instead of the PVC, you can also use driveway markers. One of my baskets has mini fiberglass whips in the outside corners with bright colored balls on the ends. I tried drive way markers at first but the PVC painted orange is more visible to say a car cutting back into my lane too quickly. Iowa 80 sells some lighted wands for big rigs that would be even better. I like you suggestion of a higher mounted carrier Wayne. Brings to mind the electric wheel chair lift I have in my 'someday I will use that' pile. Power lift to get the gen up higher.

RE: Just got a hitch mount for my Honda 2000

My TL carrier is made for two 2000's or one 3000 so it sticks out pretty far. I use uprights made from PVC pipe painted orange to let me and others know it is there. I also have yellow clearance lights with magnetic bases that I can move to the other two carriers I have. Looks a bit like a Salmon troller with the out riggers but I and others know the front of the truck is a bit extended.

RE: State of Emergency in Washington?

Not to worry, my crazy neighbor says a winter akin to the one we had in 1969 is on tap.

RE: Illegal GPS mounting

The cops use "picayune ship" like this to justify otherwise illegal fishing expeditions. The fact that so many on this thread meekly endure this infringement of their 4th amendment rights illustrates how far we've slipped. I may get stopped but feel certain no one is going to get a look around inside my truck while my dog is inside.

RE: Rotating a trailer with a winch in a tight boondocking site

Something to keep in mind about trailer tugs, hand or electric / gas powered. They depend on tongue weight for traction.. Hit a bump, rock, log eat and things get difficult with light tongue weight.

RE: Camper Bumper Rub Strip Coming Unglued

Just did a repair like that. I used GOOP.

RE: Why is there a 3 inch hole in the roof of my wolf creek?

What a giant gas bag. I have to say, pretty nasty comment there! Yessir, just so incredibly tired of you guys busting some bodies chops with useless opinions that were never asked for. Did you answer his question or anything at all? Any constructive advice, I sure never read a question about solar location. Sorry Nolan Seems to be a case of typing before thinking. A little thought would have brought up the case most likely NOT be used cocked off center and was so there would be access to the hole.

RE: Drone carrying a video camera

UAV just seems very broad, I imagine many court cases over the issue.

RE: State of Emergency in Washington?

If you look at how Austraila has developed a water usage plan in light of their recent prolonged dry spell you will understand how wasteful the American west water useage is. Better hope El NiƱo kicks in as predicted this next winter or we might be drinking toilet water.

RE: Drone carrying a video camera

Anyone have a definition for a drone? Is a fixed wing model air plane a drone? How about model cars being controlled remotely?

RE: 2001 Dodge cummins 5.9

The lesson here is keep a close eye on your fuel pressure. I went thru five lift pumps before I installed a FASS. Got so I could change out a pump in fifteen minutes flat on my back with a headlamp at midnight in a parking lot.never a problem with the FASS and you don't have to buy the whole filter rig, just the pump. What lift pump recall, I never got a notice, not that it matters now. I have a '01.

RE: What kind of tape is this?

Looks like Eternabond. On a side note I have found EB great for mending house rain gutter leaks and junctions.

RE: Overweight

Last time I checked it was about 1000 over. Might have had something to do with my frame on the right side breaking 100 percent. That and the poor condition of CA roads.

RE: Black Tank odor - gone.

I haven't used the same product as OP but have used one with the same properties. Worked well even when I had to leave a tank nearly full tank for months.

RE: Truck camping in Yosemite questions

If you do end up there in the fall, by all means go over Tioga Pass and South on 395. T Meadows is a great place to spend a few days in the Fall and the rivers of gold Aspen flowing down the heights are a photo bonanza.

RE: Perfect backing!

I am good enough getting my boat in an out of the water so I cause no problems on a ramp. I am alone most of the time so I take longer and that sometimes causes a slow down, can't be helped. Now and then someone objects. I try to be polite but if some jerk persists I just walk up to him with my dog on a leash. That usually ends the problem as the dog does not like me to be threatened.
