RE: 2012 Ford 6.7L DEF & Regen Questions

Whatever you do make sure that you keep your DEF levels to the point that you can keep fresh fluid in the tank. Just had a problem with mine. Indications were that the DEF pump was faulty. That wasn't the case. The DEF in the tank had crystallized and plugged the filter in the bottom of the tank. There is a shelf life. This creates a problem for me because the gauge always shows that the tank is less than half full. Dealers suggestion was to run it till you got the message that you had x miles before refill. Creates a real pain. If you buy ahead too far it will crystallize and if you are on a trip and you need it in the next 100 miles and there is no place to get it for 200 miles. I don't know if I will run into that problem but it is something to think about. I love the truck and it is a towing beast but I may just bite the bullet and buy something that doesn't use DEF.

RE: Marthar's Restaurant in RGV???

The Martha's Restaurant that I have been to is in Donna on Ceaser Chavez just north of Palm Shadow RV Resort. Ate there once. Food not that bad but sanitation in bathroom so bad it made me wonder about the kitchen. I just left the Valley yesterday or I would check the phone book.

RE: TurboTax in Florida

I'm in Texas. I purchased TurboTax Deluxe federal and state from Newegg. Cheaper than anywhere else.

RE: Route south to north info

When I head back to Iowa I'm usually in a hurry. I just plan to do it on a weekend to avoid the rush traffic. I get on I35 at San Antonio and don't stop until at least Emporia, Kansas. Back home in N.E. Iowa by early evening on the second day.

RE: The Population is dwindling

Talked to my Iowa neighbor yesterday. He said I still have three feet of snow in my front yard and it hasn't been melting very fast. I planned on leaving the valley March 28. I don't think it is going to happen now. I don't have to be home until April 16 for a Dr. appointment. I'm sure I'll stay another week.

RE: heartburn

Keep in mind that the OTC Prevacid is half the strength of the prescription Prevacid.

RE: heartburn

I've had a severe problem with reflux for years. Simple things like peanut butter will cause it. Things like chocolate and onions do not bother me. I just ate a bunch of potato chips and washed it down with Pepsi. I know from experience that that will not bother me. Between knowing what I can eat and Prevacid I haven't had a problem for several months. I haven't had to jack the head of my bed up for a few years. When I do have a problem I'll wake up chocking and gasping for air. Very scary. My esophagus will burn for days. Usually I can tell earlier in the day if I'm going to have a problem and just sleep in my recliner. Because I have no drug plan and the VA does not have Prevacid I buy it in Mexico. I can buy a years supply there for $60.

RE: Rant

Here we go again Bash the USPS. It is always easier to do the job when you don't have a clue. I have used the USPS for over 50 years, once I had a letter disappear, never have I had a package damaged or misdelivered in that time. Those claiming to have mail exchange parties, I am calling you out as an out and out liar. Maybe once in a while but misdelivery is never a common thing. USPS is broke due to a small group in congress that pushed through legislation REQUIRING the usps to fully fund every single employees retirement and health care for 50 years into the future. USPS is the only company private or otherwise that is forced to do this. Would your company be profitable if you had to fund my retirement before I was even hired. I don't think so! Harbor Freight and JC Whitney used to be infamous for taking orders and stockpiling them until they had enough going to a common zip code range to ship by pallet on common carrier. The pallet would be delivered to a USPS processing plant to be distributed to the local PO's for delivery. Call me a liar if you want. I know I'm not telling a lie and you don't know the facts. I actually received three different person's mail in my mailbox once. I took it back to the post office and spoke personally to the postmistress. The carrier is still working, thankfully not on my route. I forgot to add, I didn't get my package today and I'm not counting on tomorrow either.

RE: Rant

I don't have the problem that I had at the old residence but there are only four families on my street. Before I moved the neighborhood had a weekly mail exchange. I assume the requirement to read was dropped to be employed by the postal service. My house number was 1007 and my mail was frequently delivered to 1107, 1207, and farther down the street. I would also receive mail belonged to them. It always made me wonder if I got others mail where did mine go and would I ever see it.

RE: Rant

Checked tracking again this morning. It still says estimated delivery Feb. 20. It also says that it has left the local facility for delivery which means I might get it tomorrow.
Retired andLoveIt 02/03/14 06:04am Around the Campfire

I ordered two items from Amazon on Monday. Both were shipped Tuesday. One was shipped from Amazon via UPS and the other was from a third party vendor via USPS. The order shipped via UPS has a expected delivery of tomorrow. According to the tracking number from USPS expected delivery will be February 20. I just can't understand why it would take 25 days to mail from anywhere. I've received packages from Hong Kong in just over a week by mail.

RE: What are best Food Joints in Texas?

We thought we would try Rudy's in McAllen tonight. What a waste of $30. The smoked baby back ribs had no smoke flavor. Tender but tasted like boar meat. The wife's brisket had plenty of smoke flavor but very dry. Their sissy sauce was to spicy for the wife but I managed to eat some. Brought remainder of ribs home so we could try to salvage them by using a good sauce on them. The food was actually worse than Texas Pride in San Antonio. Up till now that was the worst BBQ that I had ever tasted.

RE: Meal Plans on Alaska tours

We did a land/sea tour with Princess Cruise line two years ago. Little did we know that we were locked into staying at Princess' lodges that were basically nowhere near any place else. We were locked into eating in their restaurants. I spent well over $500 maybe close to $700 in 5 days for food. Same menu in all their restaurants so no variety. We ended up spending all of our time with the exception our side tours on a bus or in their lodges. Yes, the salmon bake was great. I also ate my share of crab on the crab tour. Your tour sounds exactly like the tour we took with the exception of the flight to Fairbanks.

Outdoor WiFi antenna

Trying to figure our what I need to put up a outdoor WiFi antenna in our park. I would like to set up a wireless router so two laptops and a printer can connect. Be specific if you can. i haven't been able to figure it out by reading.

RE: WOW!!! Cold

We had a little frost on the ground here in Edinburg a couple of days ago. Grass was a little crunchy. Some roofs had frost on them. I remember as a kid when the Temps would stay -20 and worse for a couple of weeks at a time. I don't think I could handle it now.

RE: Laptop running slow

You mentioned 'slow dial up' so is your problem your internet connection speed or just basic off-line operation? Maybe you could provide some details about your connection. I'm using the RV Park wifi and it is fast. I think I got a virus thru an email. I'm using my parks wi-fi too. It is fast if you use it at 3 A.M. or go to the rec. hall where the the wi-fi originates. Could it be that band with is being spread a little too thin. If your computer works normally when not on the internet and only slows when on I would bet that more people are using more band width than is available. Other than the middle of the night I use my hot spot and get along fine.

RE: At last!!!

You got a great truck, now get out of the way of that cold storm, and go south! Fred. It's a good thing that I'm driving the van. Check engine light came on in the Ford. Diagnosed as a bad DEF pump. New one ordered and installed yesterday. Check engine light came on again before I got home with it. Took it back and diagnosed as a bad DEF pump. The new one won't prime. Two weeks ago during a cold spell got warning light "Decreased Power" and "Low Fuel Pressure". Took to dealer and low and behold the suppose winter blend fuel that I had just put in jelled. Major chain station claimed that it had all been changed over in November.
