RE: Move spare to top of TC, stick an Onan genset in the space?

In my old decrepit state I have a hard time just getting a spare on the studs. I would need a anti gravity device to get one on a roof. I don't think I have ever seen a spare on on a RV roof.

RE: Bears!!!

Never had too much trouble with bears in the valley but have had some long nights of defensive combat in the back country..

RE: No thank you. Don't need your help

For a good time take a lawn chair and a cool drink to a boat ramp on a busy summer day.

RE: Big truck gets stuck in Zion tunnel; driver blames GPS

Yup, mistake but stuff happens and my bet is no one here can say they never make a bad decision. This one just had lasting problems.

RE: What do you use for a refrigerator Thermometer ?

We use an AcuRite dual fridge/freezer remote reading thermometer. It shows us the two temps as well as min/max readings, and also has alarm settings to warn us if the temps get too far out of range. AcuRite 00986 Refrigerator/Freezer Wireless Digital Thermometer http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/510mOY9AjhL._SL1000_.jpg width=400 Me too, use it at home and transfer to TC when needed.

RE: Low price for diesel

Algae will surely grow in a few months when diesel is stored in a dark sealed place. You will know it when your fuel filters start getting clogged up way before they are due to be changed. I would use an additive to prevent algae growth. As long as no water gets mixed in diesel will store much longer than that. Of course if the blender forgot to add a biocide all bets are off. I add biocide with each tank but bio diesel is involved.

RE: Humidity / Moisture Absorbers; Do They Work?

If you are near a business that gets machinery from overseas they get packets of dissicants in the crates all the time. Like the packets found in pill bottles but about a pound. I put them in places that might get damp and every now and then bring them into the house oven to drive out moisture. Works well and helps heat the house lol.

RE: Low price for diesel

I found 2.99 diesel in CA, wonders never cease.

RE: Good Thing he Didn't Put A Camper On It.

Geeze, it took 5000 pounds to break my frame, apparently just a camper shell was enough for that truck.

RE: Frozen Axle Bearing

Wait, if the inner slides on and it is a constant diameter spindle and the outer won't, something is wrong. Undersized outer?? It is not a constant diameter spindle per the picture. The outer diameter is smaller so the inner bearing would pass by it. Many spindles are like that. I have yet to see a picture so assumed constant diameter as I haven't encountered stepped spindles on utility trailers. I know they must be out there just haven't seen one. I am assuming the step is not just a matter of a few thousands. Edit... Saw the pic, hard to see how much damage but I bet it can be repaired with a fine mill file, dykem, stone and polishing cloth.. As long as the seal surface and threads are un damaged all will be well with some time spent on it.

RE: air bags pump

My valves are in the wheel wells, could be in a better place but have not been a problem. I just fill them at home, have to add near double the psi on the heavy side of camper to get close to level.Hardly ever need to add/remove psi till I take the TC off. I have a pump and gauge set up for the truck cab but never seen the need to install. If I do add air I have both a bike pump and 12V pump to work with but the stay packed away most of the time.

RE: Californianos Hang Onto Yer Britches...!

Pardon me if I have to smile at this so-called 'storm'. In CA they worry about a few inches of rain? Think I'd worry more about earthquakes. I guess you haven't been in CA when a big Express hits. Like ten or fifteen feet of snow and whole families wiped out by mud and trees.

RE: Californianos Hang Onto Yer Britches...!

Well it was a big one but not the Pineapple Express of yesteryear which is good. I sure hope we have another two or three just like it. I have a friend who says it is not a real PE unless houses slide down hills and lives are lost. Sick puppy. Folsom Lake is getting a lot of water, 40 percent full 12/12/14 ..

Need WiFi Board?

So I was given a big honking Apple computer (6 years old ??) and it was fed net stuff by a cable. Do I just take it to a shop and ask them to install a WiFi board?

RE: Have the Police stopped enforcing our traffic laws?

I have got to disagree with some remarks. For the past six months I have been hauling loads across the central valley of CA and don't run across much mayhem. Could be a lot of those trips are during non commute hours has something to do with. Last night about 20 police passed me at at least 80 mph, they were on the way to Berkley where some idiots had blocked I80. Scary to be overtaken by so many fas movers all lit up.

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

Which big rock is that? http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b217/Eric1218/2014%20Photos/2014_1129_09160900_zpsnry0hazs.jpg height=480 Have read it is the largest exposed granite monolith in the world.
