RE: Starbucks intimidates me

There was a time when I worked for a living, we would on a weekly basis, go out to eat on Fri nites with two other couples at a nice restaurant. After the meal we would go to a Starbucks for a cup of coffee or other kind of a coffee type drink that I couldn't pronounce....like the OP, Starbucks customers for the most part speak this foreign language. I would order a cup of de-caf. My wife could speak fluent Starbucks ordered something else. Nearly every time, I would be told that they were out of de-caf...I'd have to get regular. Not a bad thing, I actually like regular black coffee better than de-caf anyway. But it just strikes me in an odd way....a place that is basically nothing but a coffee place, can't supply a simple cup of de-caf????? :)

RE: Big car, big cigar and no gas.

Does anyone take the OP's query serious???? If someone is talented enough to retire with a yearly income of $150 grand is certainly smart enough to know how to budget that amount.

RE: Code reader - Check Engine - Scangage - Silverleaf or OBDII

The reason you get a fault or code when using the engine brake is because the engine is over-revving on your decent. Your engine could be red-lined at about 2750. That number is for peak rpm on acceleration. When the engine brake is engaged you can easily exceed that number. That isn't a problem There probably is a de-acceleration number on the engines but its a larger number than the acceleration rpm number. You engine computer will prevent the engine from over-revving when using the engine brake but it still shows up as a fault code and the code light will light up. Rest easy.

Of course we can't cover every possibility of fire in a RV but we can try. The percentage of RVs that are consumed in fire is very small when compared to the number of RVs still on the road. I'd almost bet that its the same numbers when compared to stick and brick homes, percentage wise.

RE: Just a Suggestion:Theft

You just can't convince me that the scrap dealers aren't aware of who is bringing them copper. Over and over again? Obviously there are dealers who are promoting the copper wire thievery.

Terrible...If I would venture a guess, it would be the refrigerator. Looking at the refrigerator area (what looks like the frig area) its completely destroyed... Course all of the top picture says its completely destroyed too.... On edit that area looks more like the bathroom area.

RE: Michael Waltrip on Dancing with the Stars !

Somehow this doesn't surprise me at all. :) Hope he does well.

RE: Commode not holding water

Please try the vinegar treatment. It absolutely works. Make sure that there isn't any paper stuck to any part of the ball or gasket. Calcium will disolve easily with vinegar.

RE: Paintless dent removal

I had a red Trans Am and the right front was parking lot damaged. Looked like someone actually drove over it. I got a $1200.00 quote to repair and repaint from a reputable body shop. Stopped in at a Fix-A-Dent to see what they could do and make an appointment....the guy looked at it and said $50 buck...when? right now. Took him a half hour in the driveway and it was absolutely like new. I got lucky.

RE: What is the dumbest thing you have seen while on the road?

Driving our MH on the express way in San Diego. As anyone who has ever driven on multilane freeways in San Diego knows, they don't ever widen the freeways, they just repaint to add another lane. Anyway, the lanes are very narrow and I'm actually white knuckled driving in rush hour traffic. Then here comes Willie Lumplump driving his car next to me with a pocket novel on the steering wheel reading it during his commute.

RE: What is the latest on RedMaxPro peeling and removal.

The Zep stripper will work. It dissolves the old Red Max in a heartbeat and can easily be washed off with just plain water. I had to redo my door after about 2 years from the applicaton (poor preparation on my part) and it was really a very easy task. Re-applied and I'm still in great shape after 3 years since original application. And we fulltime.

RE: 50A Idea

I made my own 50 to 30/20 amp pigtail. I plug my main 30 amp cord into the 30 amp female. I plug a 20 amp, 10 ga second shore cable and run it to my inverter/converter. It has its own breakers. So my big items run off the 30 amp cord and my items that would normally be powered thru the inverter is powered thru the 20 amp cord. If I have to plug into only 30 amp shorepower, I just plug the converter/inverter back into the normal wiring and run everything off of 30 amps.

RE: Golf Cart

My cart is gas but it does have a battery. I store it for 8 months of the year in WY. Its in a small unheated shed but lets face it, it gets mighty cold in WY. I make sure its topped off with distilled water and charged completely and disconnect the ground cable. It has survived the last three winters and starts the engine in the spring without any additional charging.

RE: Considering installing an electric pressure washer

I would ask? Are you a fultimer or just a weekend/vac RVer? If fulltimer, then perhaps I guess I could justify the bulk and weight of the unit, but if not, I'd leave it at home and just do the cleanup you think you need a pressure washer for then. BTW: I've never used a pressure washer on my MH in 9 years of fulltiming except: the one at a car wash to clean the radiator. It took me 7 years to give up the basement space for a small but efficient air compressor :)

RE: "Remember That Black & Decker Charger You Bought For Me?

Most of the problems with the B&D chargers seem to be the cooling fan. Mine quit shortly after I got it. I had to sit a small fan right next to and directed into the charger to use it. Plus, you can't get into the darn thing to replace it.

RE: Found this generator at Home Depot. "deal of the day"

Here's the deal breaker: "Auto idle control = No " That means it's running at full-bore all the time. That was the first thing that caught my eye. Even the 2000 watt Honda is noisy at full throttle. This unit wouldn't be something I would like to have running within a hundred yards of my campsite.

RE: Dead Cummins ISB/275

You said you replaced the fuel filter...was that before you started it? If so, I'm betting you didn;t prime the system well enough before starting. If so, bleed the injectors.

Do you wear these clothes when checking your batteries????

RE: People never cease to surprise me

But, but, but, you never got to the bicycles and plastic training wheels running up and down the pavement for hours at a time. ... :) :) :) Not the worse kind of neighbor by any means but just think of the tale you will have to share with others over and over again in your travels...priceless.

RE: compartment lock

To open a door that you can't operate the hasp like in your case, you have to look at the sides of the door where the hasp is located. I have used a short stubby knife to slip it into the crack and push at the pin of the hasp while pressing in on the door. Then allow the door to put pressure on the pin again while I pull back on the knife and re-apply pressure on the pin again. Repeat over and over again until it finally gets to the open position. Then go to the opposite side and repeat. Its a test of patience but it works for me on my Fleetwood Expedition. My pins break and become useless but have to be forced open just like in your case.
