RE: Dash cams?

There was a discussion recently about several brands and members experience with each. A forum search should bring it up for you.

RE: RG921 LED conversion

I got command electronics "bulbs", they are around 24 bucks each, but are *much* brighter - as in casts shadows on the floor brighter - then the standard bulbs. Yep, Command LED are double the lumen of the stock lamp. I am suspect of any replacement that doesn't list the lumen. I bought Command as well.

RE: Wipers have a mind of their own

Maybe try bypassing the switch. See if they work correctly.

RE: Sorry, but another Nitrogen in tires question

Helium works much better than nitrogen. When are they going to start filling tires with helium as a fuel saving measure? Just think, a lighter vehicle will use less fuel. :B riven1950, if you have read the other threads on nitrogen, you have already read the answers to your questions. I use the 78% Nitrogen stuff in mine. No worries. Nice thing is that it is available everywhere at no cost. In fact, I breathe the stuff regularly!

RE: Iota DLS30 question

I would only use the jumper/jack while charging from the generator. It should not be used under normal conditions with shore power. I eventually bought the IQ4 for about $30 and its all automatic now. With the IQ4, the batteries can be connected indefinitely. I don't remember if it is three stage without the IQ4, I would read the manual if I was interested.

RE: Water in Diesel Fuel from Major Truck Stop

Were they filling the tanks while you were pumping? I've always heard that you should not pump while they are filling the tanks because the filling stirs up water and debris.

RE: When do you inspect a used unit?

You better be sure about buying before signing a contract unless you write in a contingency of some sort before signing. Legally, you and the seller sign a contract and they accept your deposit - you bought it!

RE: Unattended RV question

Most private campgrounds have a storage lot and you can leave the RV in storage for a monthly fee. The storage fee will be much less than renting a camp site.

RE: UPDATE [our travel trailer was stolen]

...Thursday, November 20, my husband bought a tire boot lock... This one? http://www.trimaxlocks.com/zoom_img/_1338464368.jpg width=640 What is there to prevent the thief from simply removing the tire/wheel with the boot on it? It could then be towed with three tires or the spare could be installed. Either get locking lug nuts or a boot that covers the lugs. You would be better off with this one; http://www.trimaxlocks.com/prod_img/_1389706426.jpg width=640

Craig DeOxit Looks like auto correct changed the spelling, I meant Caig, not Craig.

RE: Electrical truck to trailer connection question

It is unclear to me exactly what you want to do. Maybe jumper cables from the truck would be simplest solution. Personally, I would either plug it in or install battery.

RE: Where did you get your Electrical knowledge?

Learned most everything I know in the trades by three steps. Dismantling Observing others Reading Learned enough that now I earn my living in the trades.

RE: Butyl tape / sealant / or both?

Butyl tape. Be aware that putty tape and butyl are not the same.

RE: Nov Savings Circular pricing not honored in CW Las Vegas

...I told him this was twice now his store was unable to service me right and I would give it one more change in the future.... Assuming you meant chance and not change, you certainly are a glutton for punishment!

RE: No Praises for GSRA Today - I Need to Rant

...Our toys riding comfortably on the utility trailer behind the truck. At about mile marker 11 on S2, we had a blow out on the trailer.... Wait a minute, when did GS ERS start covering utility trailers? I'm pretty sure utility and boat trailers are not covered. That is one major reason that I have never purchased GS ERS.

RE: FOUND!!!!!!!!!!! [Our travel trailer was stolen.]

I hope it is in good condition and you can go back to using it again. I also hope all your possessions are still intact. ...I will buy tire boot locks.... Make sure you get the kind with a plate that covers the lug nuts. Otherwise a thief can remove the wheel, install the spare, and go on their way. They will leave behind the wheel and boot.

RE: securing a travel trailer

Take the tires and wheels off. Too extreme? Boot one or more wheels. Too extreme still? Coupler lock.

RE: Pop-Off Valve Replacement

They are easy to replace as others have said. If it drips occasionally when first heating water, it is normal. An RV has a closed water system. When the water is heated, it expands and increases pressure in the system. A house normally has an open water system so the pressure does not build.
