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.

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.
