RE: USPS mail forwarding vs ???

We have used the USPS forwarding service for over 10 years. You can have the mail forwarded to any address that will accept it (some campgrounds, another home address etc.) We go to the same area each winter and have a P.O. box there. So we have our home mail forwarded to the P.O. Box. Only problem we have had is several times at the beginning our post office where the box is will reject our forwarded mail and send it back to our home address, of course when that returned mail gets back home it is again forwarded to the P.O. box. 2 or 3 times we have had our mail go around in circles for over 3 weeks before we could get it straightened out. What we learned to do is as soon as we get to our winter area, notify the post office where our box is to open our box to allow mail to come there. It's not suppose to be necessary to do that, but it works. As someone else said all mail will not get forwarded, so if you should have any mail that is stamped do not forward you will not get it.

RE: Can a tire explode from Over-inflation?

Very unlikely a good tire will explode from being over inflated. But they are most likely to blow off at the bead before the tire will give out. I have seen that happen. For as long as I can remember truck tires have been required to be in a steel cage when being inflated. Older truck tires that had the steel ring (name escapes me right now) killed many people while inflating them.

RE: Topping up Engine Oil ?

I certainly wouldn't worry about a quart low on a 5 or 6 quart gas engine. I'm sure your oil capacity is well over that and no need to worry about it even down 2 quarts. That's the reason they have ok range on the dip stick. If it's down to the add oil point it's sure lower than 1/2 quart.

RE: Telescoping towbar

When possible unhook on a level area and the tow and tow vehicle in line (not on a angle to one another. Yes the newer tow bars are much easier to unhook.

RE: Packets or Liquid for Black water tank

I'm a packet user, we dump black and gray every 7 days. 65 degrees and below I don't use any packets, 65 to 75 I use one packet, 75 and up I use two packets. We have a 50 gallon black tank. After dumping I add about 5 gallons of water to the black tank with the packets if used.

RE: Valterra valve cable question

Several years back I needed one for just the same thing and I think it was a 1/8"

RE: portable holding tanks

I like the 4 wheel models best. And also like the larger capacity. But the larger the more they hold and the heavier they get. Sometimes on a sandy or muddy sites the larger are not the best. But you don't have to fill them full just because they can hold it. I prefer the Barker tanks.

RE: Which weather radio?

Reecom http://www.reecominc.com/ turns itself off after each alarm. We may get six or seven alarms/activations during summer/winter storms, and to my knowledge this is the only one that resets after each alarm. My choice also.

RE: Brake Buddy Acitaved for no reason

My Brake Buddy locked up one time also. I was driving through a sort of dip on a freeway ramp and all of a sudden heard the tow tires squealing. Got out to look the situation over and it had left about 4 foot of rubber on the road from all 4 tires. So it had to be a full brake that applied. I Checked the brake Buddy setting and all looked fine. That was maybe 3 or 4 years ago and it's never done it again.

RE: leaving house empty

This may have nothing to do with snowbirds leaving the house while on vacation. But, my uncle passed away a few weeks ago. His daughter called his house insurance company to ask if any changes needed to be made to the policy as the house would set empty till they settled the estate. The insurance company informed her if the house was going to be unoccupied for over 30 days they would not insure it. Sometimes your afraid to ask. So she went to another insurance company and was able to get it insured, but at nearly double the cost just because it would be unoccupied. Just something to think about.

RE: 2008 F250 V10 question

I think the SCANGAUGE would be my choice as it can be programmed to do several functions. I love mine on the V10.

RE: Good news for American car/truck builders

To bad the RV manufactures can't have a rating like that.

RE: 2012-2014 Ford Focus Auto Trans Positive Battery Disconnect

I have around 6000 tow miles on my 2014 Focus. I disconnect the positive terminal only. For my breaking system I plug my Brake Buddy into a battery booster. I have gone up to 5 days running off the booster before recharging it. I use separate bulbs in the taillights rather than diodes so there is no chance of back feeding power.

RE: How far would you go to buy a 3013 used trailer

My first concern would be if from private or dealer sale is why is a year old trailer for sale. If it's from a dealer beware if it's not a brand they sell.

RE: Bill stein shocks vs Monroe gas

My experience with Bilstein on 2 motorhomes was that they are a very stiff shock and I felt every crack in the road. I found the Koni shocks to give a much better ride. They seem to soak up the cracks in the road. Maybe a better way to put it is the Bilsteins seems to have a very sharp response to bumps and pot holes and the Koni seem to soften that sharp response yet maintain control.

RE: Cable operated dump valves

Several years ago I install electric valves. They worked fine for regular dumping. But my first dump into a portable blue tank was not good. The electric valves I had closed rather slow compared to hand operated. Before the valve got closed my blue tank was over full, what a mess. Maybe the electric valves today are faster operating.

RE: Lubing the HWH Jacks with what ?

I use transmission fluid on a rag to lube the jack and works good I think you hit the nail on the head. The seals get a little on the dry side and if you extent them full and wipe them down with ATF, then retract while wet with ATF most times there good to go.

RE: carburator cleaning

I think one of the first things to do if you going to use some magic in a can (Sea Foam). Is remove the fuel line on the generator. You may have to add a length of fuel line to reach into a gallon can. Mix your magic in a can with a gallon of fuel whatever there recommend ratio is. And draw from the can, really no use treating 25 gallons or more of fuel in the motor home tank. Myself being a old timer I still treat carbs the old way and that's mix 6 parts of gasoline to 1 part of ATF. For the generator mix one gallon. Start the generator let it warm up and run it under full load till you use a 1/2 gallon of fuel. Then shut it off and let it sit overnight. Start the next day and again run under full load till all fuel is gone. Repeat once or twice if you need to. If that doesn't help, you need to rebuild the carb.
