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.

RE: Tongue Weight question

Plus the fact that with a 48 inch extension the ball can move up and down 2 or 3 inches when hitting a bump.

RE: Tornado safety

I have to say after reading that I think I prefer earth quake country.

RE: Diesel price ~same as Gas: Why?

Don't worry, it won't be cheaper than gas for too long. The world runs on diesel.

RE: Just got a hitch mount for my Honda 2000

Very nice. After getting the first edition of the carrier I and am sure many others, wrote suggesting a version for single gen sets. I would just weld the nuts with a tack instead of welding the sheet metal.

RE: Camper and Fifth Wheel????

I am thinking of getting a bumper pull trailer around 23 feet. That will fit in the parking space I have.i love having a TC but we are getting older and I have knee and shoulder problems. That and we have three dogs from 30 to 60 pounds. After traveling in this TC for fifteen years we both want more room to sit down in comfort. TC's are great for traveling, eating and sleeping but not so much for hanging out in. A short toy hauler might fit my needs because I can equip it to my specs. Has to be a bumper pull so I can use my trailer tug to shoehorn it into a very tight space at home

RE: Need advice with wheel bearing issue

I do accurate (.001) lathe machining all the time w/ a dial calipers. 50 years as a machinist means I would not trust a dial caliper (not a electronic caliper) instead of a mic to be accurate to .001.

RE: Need advice with wheel bearing issue

A dial caliper, get a micrometer, that caliper is not accurate enough.

RE: Tricks to stop leaking pipe thread

Tape and dope. A decade dealing with bio diesel and methanol taught me that.

RE: Bike Rack receiver wiggle

I assume you turned the handle bars ninety degrees for a better clearance.

RE: Honda generator bites the dust

Another vote for Sea Foam in a Honda and all motors.

Were I to buy another TC it would be a clam shell. Sadly my knees are having a hard time getting me into my TC these days so it might be a trailer instead.

RE: Man after my own heart

The first this that caught my eye was the suction cup mount on the widnshield.... I thought the Rupublik of Kalifornia had laws against attaching things to the widnshield. I can see your confusion since I am under the impression that wind shields are optional in NM so your donkey riding in the front seat can get some wind in the face. Oh wait, I might have confused New Mexio with Old Mexico.

RE: Anyone make a "decent" enclosed trailer?

Do ya think being black had anything to do with it?

RE: Air Dams - People Always Asks Me

Air pressure can do strange things to a TC. My slide can get sucked out three or four inches if the pass thru is open and there is a strong side wind hitting the non slide side.

RE: New guy with a problem

The 180 degree rotation is a interesting situation. You also might try banging the tank on hard ground or a stump, both ends. That is a cure for a sticking OPD valve but never heard of a partial stuck one, what is it with these stuck OPD valves, I have had to bang three different tanks in order to get them to flow. Wife is convinced I am going to blow up home sweet home when I do it.

RE: So what did you do to your Truck Camper today?

For me it is what I am afraid of what I might do to my TC. Going to load it this week for the first time since I have had months of knee problems. Holding in a stiff clutch could be a problem. Makes me wish I had installed a 4Low kit. If all else fails I will just disable the vac line to the front axle, red neck 4Low.

RE: Got shocked while washing trailer

Who the heck washes a trailer while plugged in?
