RE: But officer the spare is flat....

I'm just curios as to how he got it loaded? I'd like to see the unloading.

RE: Using a 2014 GMC Sierra in dinghy towing

Use an aux cig lighter with two alligator clips to power the braking system. Just clamp onto the battery when you disconnect the main cable. Of course, you want an inline fuse on that setup for protection.

RE: Who caught what

You do know that the first lier here doesn't stand a chance. Mine was an 18" bugle mouthed bass. :)

RE: 275 hp Cummins

I have the same engine and an Allison 1000 tranny. The tranny will not handle any additional hp.

RE: World Record Eagle Flight

Truly an amazing video. Thanks for sharing. I have two GoPros and continue to try to find different methods of using them trying to get different results. Maybe I could start with a parakeet???? :)

RE: Be careful if you go to America Choice Rv in Ocala, FL

I'm sure the warning is nothing more then an attempt to let off some steam about the frustration of being taken advantage of. To the OP, feel lucky that for only a $70 con you've now picked up at least two places in that area that do good work at a fair price. Imagine if you would have rolled in with a major problem not knowing of the other places . As they say "fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me." HOW did they take advantage of him????? They quoted him a price, he accepted, they did the work. Then he has buyers remorse. Doug Perhaps the work could have been done cheaper but because of the easy access the provider pays a premium price for his location when compared to others that might be cheaper. Once you accept the service for a price, the negotiations are over with.

RE: Just ordered a Go Pro!!!

The GoPro is the greatest thing since sliced bread...my opinion only. But has anyone figured out a way to use it as a head mount without looking like a complete dork or geek? I fly RC planes and like to film some of the flights from the ground so I attached the GoPro to the bill of a baseball cap and it serves the purpose well, but again, I look like a geek. I have two GoPros. One has an aftermarket lense to remove the fish eye. I use it on a quad copter for overhead videos.

RE: Tips for operating manual levelling jack with painful hands?

I saw my neighbor pull out a cordless drill, and I thought, 'That's what I need!' Went down and bought a socket, and adapter for drill (I hate buying tools I already own, back at my S&B). Got back to camp and, nope. Ok for stabilizing, but not for leveling -- drill just twists in my hands. My van is now all cattywhompus, and my hands have given out for the week. Ideas? To actually answer your question: If the electric drill is too much to handle because you've tightened the jacks too tight, just replace the electric drill with a break handle the same size as the socket. Plenty of leverage to regain control of the situation. May be a bit slow, but will make the effort, duck soup.

RE: Need a Bumper for Fleetwood Turbo Diesel

Give Walts RV a call in Rialto, CA. Walts = Fleetwood.

RE: How much sewer hose?

I use a Sewer Solution so my hoses are 8' lengths. I carry three lengths and normally use only one.

RE: onan 7000 watt marquis

Have never done so but.... Most cases, the flywheel will have two smaller holes about an inch or so from the center of the flywheel. You find a couple bolts that size and a puller (NAPA) and use that to remove a pulley or flywheel. Again, I'm guessing that is the way yours comes off. But you didn't get any answers so its something to check.

RE: Buying first MH, what should I change right away

Check the fuel level regularly while smiling/driving. :) I would suggest a regular check of tire pressure and have the RV 4 corner weighed and follow the tire manufacturers recommendations to the Tee as to proper pressure. If you weigh the RV too soon, you'll be light...wait until you have overloaded it like the rest of us do :) Really, low pressure is the number one killer of tires.

RE: Warning! Caution! Warning!

The most dangerous feature of thousands of things we buy is the packaging. You can seriously cut yourself either on the packaging itself or the knives it takes to open them. No warnings there!This is my pet peeve. It takes the chain saw to open some of the packaged items. COSTCO is a good example of this super human packaging.

RE: Splendide Repairs

Technical Support at Splendid is, by far, the best you can ever encounter. Give them a call and they will talk you through the fix and call you back to make sure everything is running properly.

RE: Polarity reversed?

Is the outlet that drains the battery (I agree, not possible) actually a live outlet? It may not be actually providing AC power?????

RE: Good Sam's Roadside Service???????

UsualSuspect: Sorry to hear about your negative experience with CoachNet. If that happened to me, I'd be in your corner too. But like I said in my first sentence: Roadside Assistance has to use the available service available....sounds like you got Willie LumpLump for your local service.

RE: Parasitic Power Loss!

As stated above: You just need to completely disconnect the battery terminal to insure you have a charged battery. You can disconnect and have a charged battery even 6 months after last use. No need for a trickle charger at all. (I know, I know, only if the batteries are good)

RE: Los Algedones Mexico

I see the same guy on his bicycle stopping at all the eye glass sales offices, picking up and delivering. Obviously the glasses are all ground, made at the same optical warehouse. Only difference is going to be the price charged by the retailer.

RE: Los Algedones Mexico

We have used Best Optical for years. Priced competitively and quality is excellent. They do eye testing also.
