RE: Building an RV park for overnighters?

Here is a recent thread https://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/29458114.cfm and there has been more. The way to make a small fortune in RV Parks is to start with a large fortune.

RE: Newer Ford F53 and 6R140

My 2016 Bounder with a manufacture date in February has the six speed. Really like it. In answer to the question they were introduced in 2016.

RE: Ford Fiesta ST; flat towing?

I tow the auto. Anybody know why the tow instructions in the owners manual says to disconnect the battery? Only thing I can think of would be the car alarm or maybe they're worried about the battery going flat on long hauls. Sure would be handy to have 12v power to the cig lighter for the brake buddy. To reduce the chance of stray voltage getting into the transmission computer and shifting into gear while underway.

RE: DIN? (School Is In) Nerd Fodder

Or, Do Not Inventory. :) Do Not Inventory = DNI, not DIN Close enough when you are stuck taking inventory and you really would rather be anywhere else.

RE: Forum to discuss banking experiences?

I feel your frustration dealing with banks. Sorta like the recent news story that the IRS let a no bid contract for security to Equifax. Makes one wonder. Anyway... Try taking a look at OnPoint Credit Union onpointcu.com. Been with them for about a year now and both kids use them too. While they are local to the Portland area shouldn't cause too much trouble for you. IIRC the stuff can be setup online. Never seen an ad on their site. Customer service seems good, but only used it once for minor question. Interesting what you say about USB. We used them for a home equity loan years ago and had to open a checking account with them. DW still uses it for her slush fund, and our current RV is financed with them. Can't remember the last time I logged on to their website. Now if you want to get my blood pressure way up ask me how Pacific Contenantal Bank raped me out of $6000+.

RE: ID Theft Companies Re Equifax

Didn't want to hijack the Equifax Hack thread. DH and I are strongly considering a full service credit monitor/repair such as LifeLock or Zander. Zander is recommended by Dave Ramsey and is less expensive and appears to be as comprehensive as LifeLock. Zander includes medical ID theft. Is anyone currently using these services? What's your experience with them? Any other full monitor/repair services? Equifax has just been the last straw. cts Would Dave be pedaling Zander if he wasn't getting advertising dollars from them? Just asking.

RE: First Oil change Miramar V10

I dumped the first oil at about 3000 or so. Switched to Ford full synthetic 5-20 at 5000. Will head out and change at 10,000'in a few days. Got a Futmo valve with the nipple for a hose to get it over the axle to install this time. Likely will switch to Mobi1 the next change just because it is easier to get. Had a long discussion with the local Ford Light Truck dealer when they were doing some warranty work. He STRONGLY recommend that I change oil at 5000, that Ford was crazy on this 7500 mile stuff and that I would praise and thank him in a few years to follow his advice. All he did was confirm what I was planning to do all along.

RE: Am I overweight ?

I thought that this was going to be a variation of the "do these pants make my butt look big" question.

RE: waste disposal

If the owner thinks "dumping his WASTES onto the property does not affect our water because the well is so deep and that by the time it reaches the water, it is PURE" the guy is full of what he is dumping on the ground. Unfortunately it sounds like he has lost one of his remaining three brain cells. Call the local health authorities the day you move. He is likely going to make life miserable for you if you call and stay. With the problems that Irma likely caused in your area, I wouldn't expect them to be too prompt to respond. Hope I am wrong.

RE: Ford Fiesta ruined transmission questions

Aren't you to disconnect the negative side of the battery befor towing? Just asking for clarification, not trying to accuse. I understand those running a charge line.

RE: F53 air filter removal & chassis manual

Take a look at http://www.irv2.com/forums/f23/2011-f53-triton-v10-changing-engine-air-filter-269985.html At post #8 is likely your best answer.

RE: Beware "Old Priest Grad Road" - west entry to Yosemite

Learned a hard lesson today traveling on CA... SNIP... Does anyone know how to ring Google Maps bell? Anyone else had this problem? This was a very dangerous shortcut. First of all glad that you made it without a major mafunction. Second, don't just blindly follow GPS, map apps and such. Way too many people have done so and never lived to tell about it. Google Kim family Bear Camp Road and read about one case. There is a way to contact them. This is from several years ago so I may be off somewhat. If you use a desktop version of maps in a browser there is a place for feedback. I contacted them regarding a route that took me over a state highway that I KNEW had length restrictions and is only open for a few months during the summer. It is a decent logging road but that is about it. Anyway I sent them an email including links from the State, other sites describing the road and my personal comments of why the road should not be a recommended route. Several weeks later I got a reply back saying I was correct and they would not list the route any longer. I used to work with a person who liked to meet up with is family at some of the local wineries for tastings. His son arrived after some time and made a comment about how he didn't know how his dad made it up the road in his family car but he hardly made it there in his 4X4. Yep, he was following his GPS and it took him through the puckerbrush. Dad pointed to the lane out the window and told him to follow it about a quarter mile to the highway and turn left.

RE: Portland OR to Heyburn State Park ID

No reply yet so I'll give my $.02 worth. I-84, I-82 and pick up US 395 in Pasco, WA. Few mile pull after you cross into WA, maybe 5%, nothing to alarm you. Taking WA 26 east into Colfax, WA is a decent road, no excitement here. From Colfax on WA 274 I can't help you. Have a good trip and hope someone else chimes in.

RE: Sewer hose connection question

Bike inter tube cut to length you want, wire the ends closed and filled with sand or gravel. I cut a section of old blue tarp, filled with sand, folded over the ends, grabbed the duct tape and put a few wraps on it. I guess it weighs 12-15 pounds.

RE: Need new cab over matress. Please help

Love our 8" cool foam mattress from them. IMO get the thickest one you can fit in the space. Try Mattressinsider.com. We purchased from them when we modified our queen to twins. Needed narrower twins than standard. They have custom sizes in foam mattresses.

RE: Battery Disconnect

Well, maybe that is why Ford says disconnect the negative cable. On my Focus I toyed with putting the disconnect on the positive side as it was easier to do. Decided to put on negative that way Ford couldn't say it wasn't done per their instructions. Some users say it makes no differance and I agree except as you have found out. Some say it is to be certain there is no stray voltage to the transmission causing it to kick into gear. My idea that the hood is really close to my switch so it is a CYA thing. It sounds like you had it done, ask them why they didn't follow simple instructions that are found in the manual, then ask them if they will buy you a new transmission if the worse happens due to their fault and it gets toasted. I bet they will give you dumb looks and say "that's the way we have always done it." I'll bet they screwed something up. And I would be looking at the lights too very closely if the did that wiring too.

RE: 2017 Bounder with instrument panel problem

Turn on headlights and your panel lights light up. Problem solved.
