RE: 20% Bio Fuel at Flying J/Pilot

Enlighten me Wintersun, how does BD damage fuel filters? As far as my comment on the rubber, that was in response to a previous post.

RE: 20% Bio Fuel at Flying J/Pilot

As far as I know no one has built a fuel system since the nineties with seals and hoses that would be damaged by BD.

RE: TC Sinking

I have some 18x18x1 tooling plates left over from a job. When I get around to it I will put them down but for now some pressure treated boards will do the job. Tried a paver and it cracked right away.

TC Sinking

This just for a giggle, nothing serious and easily fixed. I unloaded my TC onto a spot that a 10x10 alum shed had been sitting on, just a dirt gravel pad. All fine and good then a strange thing happened, water fell out of the sky. In NorCal rain has been a rare thing for the last three years but yea it happened. The jack pads started sinking into the ground overnight, about five inches. So today I am raising it and supporting with some cribbing while I put firm footing down, either concret pavers or some pressure treated lumber I have around. I also have old plastic cutting boards that would be ideal but this is quake country and the are pretty slick. Rain, I love it and it allowed the huge wildfire to the east of us to be controlled. It burned 100,000 acres. We need much more rain.

RE: NPS Drone Ban

Just thought I would mention the word Drone is a hot button for RC folks.. Most of them just call them Quads regardless of how many props the have. Where I live I see driverless cars most every day, are they drons?

RE: 20% Bio Fuel at Flying J/Pilot

Interesting that MBZ says that about BD amount considering Europe is said to make extensive use of BD.

RE: I guess I am hard on my rig

Over the years I have broken air bag bracket bolts, sheared off one of the upper bracket ears and fully broken the right side frame rail. It is not a question of being hard on the truck, it is these big campers we carry around. A severe twist going into a drive, a huge pot hole, uneven off road wheeling, what have you, the heavy weight will break things.

RE: 20% Bio Fuel at Flying J/Pilot

I have the 2006 Cummins ISL 400. When I talked to Cummins about the Bio20% they said I could use it. I would need to carry some extra fuel filters because of the cleaning properties. They also said that there is a fuel filter for biodiesel fuel. She did not know the part number so I will need to call a Cummins dealer and find it out. She also recommended that I add an algae treatment. Never heard of a special fuel filter for BD, can't imagine what would be different about it. I have a lot of experience with B100, over 100,000 miles in a Dodge truck. Don't let BD sit in your tank for extended periods of time without adding algecide, you might be sorry you did (he says with a voice of experience). Lodi is the only J I have found B20 but haven' been to Ripon in awhile but bet it is B20 also.

RE: Wave 3 Catalytic Heater?

The sad, dead owner's don't post much. Every year about this time I ask for someone to post a report of death caused by a Wave. Nothing for the ten years or so I have been asking.

RE: Wave 3 Catalytic Heater?

Many happy and alive wave owners on these forums.

RE: Fire

Suspect arrested for setting the King Fire, ten million bail. News says a CalFire investigator was on the ignition point shortly after fire started.

RE: Fire

There is at least one DC-10 operating out of my area. Been seeing often as it comes and goes. There is that shocking video on utube of what I think was an Electra pulling up after dumping and both wings snap off.

RE: Fire

Good on your friends Rock, people tend to forget the animals need help. The fire doubled yesterday but today is cooler so far and the winds may be less. The part of the fire burning in both the South Forkk and Middle Fork of the American River can only be battled from the air. Men and machines cannot work in those canyons. Stumpy Meadows, a nice camping and fishing area went up in flames yesterday.
Raften 09/18/14 10:00am General RVing Issues

Not a good sight to turn on the TV news and see a place you have been camping and fishing for years on fire. There are currently 14 major wildfires burning up and down the west coast. The one closest to me is the King Fire and it is huge. If you have ever driven I5 between OR and CA you have driven thru the town of Weed,CA. Yesterday fire descended on it and burned half the town.

RE: put my 19.5s on today

After my recent broken frame event I may have been part of the cause of the damage to Altamont, been over it every few days for awhile. Lol

RE: Tires?!?

I have several friends that would run nothing but XPS Ribs, same for me but I just have a six wheel truck.

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

Uloaded TC in its new resting spot and watched it do some disturbing twisting as it came up to freestanding because of the uneven grade the truck sits on. No worries, improve things soon.

RE: New Solar Battery Box by Torklift

Ignore them Frank, the solar should be considered just to maintain but not to charge after a big drawdown.

RE: TC bends frame of Dually - pic

In light of my recent frame experience I have come to realize that if you haul heavy a frequent roll around under the truck inspection is a really good plan. Just saying

RE: Broken Frame

Won't be any pics of the repair since the tie down mount bolts over the area. The holes drilled for the mount will always be a question in my mind but weight of TC is at the top of the list.
