RE: Black friday sales

I don't care what price it is, I'm not 'camping out' as some are doing already. I refuse to go shopping on Thanksgiving day. I heard some stores were being fined for not opening on Thursday. Here is the story about stores being fined. http://www.alternet.org/news-amp-politics/new-york-mall-will-fine-stores-if-they-dont-open-thanksgiving Black Friday has traditionally been a shopping day the day after Thanksgiving. But as retailers seek a way to boost their profits, many are extending their sales to Thanksgiving day itself, forcing employees to work on a national holiday traditionally reserved for spending time with family. One mall in Central New York is taking this to the next level, actually fining stores if they refuse to open on Thanksgiving. Walden Galleria Mall in Buffalo, New York has told retailers that they will face some form of fine for not opening at 6pm that day. “We’re just stuck following the rules, because if we didn’t, we’d be fined by the mall and being a small company, that’s substantial to us. We can’t just pay that. We have to stay open,” said Shaun Deutsch, manager of Tee Shirt University store, to the local news. “It’s been a lot different this year trying to find people to work. It’s not been easy. I’ve been forced to schedule myself because I can’t find anyone else, really, to help me out.”

RE: Scamming Seniors

So why did you waste the cop's time if you weren't going to follow through?

RE: No power to fridge outlet.

Go to the non-working outlets. Open them up and check for loose/broken/burned wires. If everything is good in the first one you check go to the next malfunctioning one and do the same. Some where you have a faulty connection. Over time a wire has loosened up from its connection. My bet is the connection is a stab-in type and the wire was cut to short and over stretched on the install.

RE: Question for current or retired truckers

Been driving trucks since 4/71. I have spent the majority of my time in the NW and rarely have a beef about the drivers of RV's. I see more stupid bone headed moves by truck drivers (me included) than RV's. Far too many of the truck drivers have this "I am more important than you attitude" and try to intimidate a smaller vehicle or less experienced driver. As far as the light flashing, thanks but no thanks. There is nothing worse than getting a mirror of high beams when I come back over. Most of us know where our trailers are at. And on a four plus lane it is really not needed. If you dim you lights I will say thanks, but high beams not so much. But remember everyone thinks they are the perfect driver.

RE: Looking for info on Trojan BT-105 Batteries

This is the reply that I got from Trojan. Not sure what took so long but stuff happens. Quote: We apologize for the late response: Trojan Response: Trojan makes a "Black Box" 6V golf cart battery which is rated at 210Ah. This battery is non-maroon and is made for Trojan partners based on their specifications for their private label brands. These batteries are made in the same facility, on the same production line as the maroon battery. The maroon T-105 will have a rating of 225Ah and not 210Ah. This battery will be similar to the T-605 which has a 210Ah rating. The manufacturing quality is the same, but performance will be below the T-105. End Quote

RE: Generator 110 question

Well I fall in the antenna up group. Solved that by giving the TV to DD.

RE: Generator 110 question

My funniest bonehead was when I decided to clean my black tank. I dropped a bunch of laundry detergent in the tank and used a sprayer wand to agitate it. Then I proceeded to fill the tank. I was standing right under the vent pipe and a guy walked up and we started talking. I forgot all about the water pouring in to the toilet! Next thing I know brownish soap suds start dropping on my head! The other guy's jaw dropped! I looked up and soap suds are pouring out the vent stack. I ran inside and stopped the water just at the edge of the rim of the bowl! Did not help that I had a head full of brownish soap suds and the other guy could not stop laughing.The visual I got from reading this had tears running down my face. Thanks for a good laugh!

RE: Weird Wired Power Pedestal

OK. Looked again and as I said there is a 50 amp double pole breaker and a single 15 amp and single 30 amp. One 30 amp outlet. No sign of ever being a 50 amp outlet. As DrewE and beemerphile1 said both the 50 and 30, or 15, have to be turned on. Since the 50 is a double pole I have no idea if the 30 is wired into one and the 50 to the other. Plus I really don't care. There is 115 volts at the 30 amp outlet, and also the 15. Took a quick look at three other pedestals and all were same setup. I had just never seen this before. I do agree that lots of 30 amp outlets show signs of overheat and burnt contacts that is why I carry a 50 to 30 dogbone.

Weird Wired Power Pedestal

Upon hooking up to electric I turned all breakers off, plugged in my 30 amp cord and turned on the breaker marked "30." Went for a walk, etc. Couple of hours later wife went to turn on microwave and it had no power. I went to the power pedestal and reset 30 amp breaker with no results. Thinking I had confused the 20 amp with the 30 amp tried that. Nothing. Unplugged cord and reinserted, again nothing. Scratching my head I try above steps again thinking I must be overlooking the obvious. Nothing. Then I flip the 50 amp DOUBLE pole breaker. Bingo. Why I did that I don't know, out of frustration I guess. Whoa I think. Someone screwed up big time. Remember this is a 30 RV. I look again to see if I missed something. Did a second look in disbelieve there is NO fifty amp outlet in the pedestal. Now I am getting a little nervous thinking I am going to see the smoke of burning electrical equipment that was only meant for 115 volts. Pulled the cord out and checked for the proper voltage, everything good except there is a 50 amp breaker instead of a 30. Going to check a couple of empty sites in the morning to see what the have in the pedestal. The DW just asked what I wanted for Christmas I said "Progressive Industries EMSHW30C Surge Protector, it is in the Amazon wish list." "There is also a transfer switch in there too." The explain what they are. Maybe if I am real good... Beachside State Park, Oregon site 82. I wonder how many others have plugged into this site and never questioned its power setup? Sending a e-mail to the park system in the morning after I check a few other sites.

RE: Tips, tricks, do's and dont's ....

Anything you buy at Camping World can be found cheaper anywhere else. Usually by a large amount.

RE: Dealer prep fees

I have spoken to several dealers around my area, they all charge a prep/service fee of $750 - $850 on new units. They claim to spend approximately 8 hours or more doing the prep. Remember, everything is negotiable!Me thinks the dealers have their hours and minutes mixed up.

RE: Let's fix football....once and for all

The only way to fix pro football is to eliminate the non-profit status of the NFL.

RE: 50 amp to 50 amp dog tail

That's a 50amp to 30amp adapter, not what you were looking for No not with four pins. And the link provided takes you to the option of a 30 amp or 50 amp.

RE: Stickon floor tiles...?

We did a peel and stick and haven't had any problems after two winters. That being said I am in Western Oregon where I don't have to worry about extreme cold, just extreme moisture. Temps in the teens and everyone thinks it is doomsday. I bought at a big box store and used the floor prep/sealer for vinyl floor install.

The filters were distributed in both the aftermarket and on certain Cummins engines manufactured earlier this year. The recall affects the Fleetguard UFF-XT fuel filters, part number FF63009, Approximately 42,000 of these filters were distributed as replacement filters in the aftermarket. About 21,600 were installed in Cummins ISB engines built between April 28 and July 9 and ISL engines built from April 30 to July 8. http://www.truckinginfo.com/news/story/2014/09/more-than-63-000-fleetguard-fuel-filters-recalled.aspx

RE: DEF in the winter

That DEF flat sucks...too high a freeze point so I guess the guys that live in ND are as they say SOL... Guess you overlooked this statement: Q. How do I keep the DEF from freezing? What happens if the DEF freezes in the tank on the vehicle? A. During vehicle operation, SCR systems are designed to provide heating for the DEF tank and supply lines. If DEF freezes when the vehicle is shut down, start up and normal operation of the vehicle will notbe inhibited. The SCR heating system is designed to quickly return the DEF to liquid form and the operation of the vehicle will not be impacted. The freezing and unthawing of DEF will not cause degradation of the product. I guess there must not be any newer diesel trucks in N. Dakota.
