RE: Gummed Up Honda EU 2000 Gen

My Honda is now nearly 10 years old. For five years it got used regularly but the last 5, only one week each year. After last run, I fill tank, add Seafoam and stow away. It has always started the next year after a half dozen pulls and a lot of choke. Maybe I'm just lucky.

RE: 10 year wax

Sounds like the wax job you pay a huge amount of money for when you purchase a new MH. Its just a way to gain a bigger profit for the seller.

RE: Video of two climbing to the top of a 2,000 ft building !

I got dizzy watching the video. I can't imagine anyone putting themselves in height situations like that...either for fun or for any amount of money. I envy that talent.

RE: Kevin Harvick wins Sprint Cup championship !

I read somewhere that Danica is in the the group of the very highest paid drivers. She is the third highest paid female athlete, following two tennis players. And.....you can bet those tennis players are winners....not a top 20 placer :) But...shes good for the sport and an asset to NASCAR.

RE: Kevin Harvick wins Sprint Cup championship !

Harvick hasn't been a favorite of mine but if Tony likes him, then I'll be ok with it. I'm a Tony fan and really dissappointed in this years performance(s) and his problem on the dirt. But I'm really impressed with his talent as a team owner. He seems to have a very big talent in that area. Can't wait for next year, a deep breath and fresh start, that team should be awsome.

RE: Kill a watt, how accurate?

Can't verify all the functions of a Kill-a-Watt but I compared the voltage reading of the Kill-A-Watt to my Fluke and it was actually very very close.

RE: Black friday sales

Years ago, perhaps 20 or more, Best Buy advertised a desktop computer and screen for $399. I drove our camper to the store the evening before and parked. I slept in the camper and set the alarm for about 2 0'clock, then 3: oclock. By then there was about 5 people in line. It was cold...bitter cold. I dressed according and got in line. I got my computer. The price was really low for a computer at that time. By opening time, there had to be a couple hundred people in line.

RE: 5 staples in the noggen! EEEYOWCH!

Similar but off the head subject: Today while flying RC planes, one of the flyers is a dentist. He accidentally had two fingers cut pretty badly by a spinning prop. We grabbed paper towels and I attempted to apply pressure and then wrap them and finished the task with some duct tape As I finished I just started to chuckle. He asked what was funny? I told him I spent most of my 74 years waiting for the chance to tell a dentist that you might feel a slight tingle or pressure.

RE: How do I stop Microsoft 8.1 notifications?

I've been a Mac user for about the last 4 years. I suddenly found that I needed Windows for a particular application not available in Mac. I partitioned the HD and loaded Windows. I can't believe the massive amount of updating, popups, very sneaky windows to lead you into other Windows programs that I don't want. What a cluttered up mess. I don't remember Windows as being such a cluttered mess in years past. There has to be something that other Windows users are doing to be able to navigate in the Windows environment.

RE: Portable generator

It will keep your batteries charged. Provide normal routine power for everything other than the AC.

RE: tow setup

The last place you want to go is a welding shop. Don't weld a baseplate to the frame. Baseplates come with good instructions that any automotive mechanic can easily drill necessary holes and mount the baseplate. I'm just an old John Deere mechanic and I've installed three myself. All were done in my driveway in just a couple hours each.

RE: How do you find a place for lunch in your motorhome?

I've never had that problem. Just keep your eyes open for an opportunity. On Interstates, Just use a side road exit/onramp area. You see trucks at the top of an exit to a side road there all the time.

RE: Another Lithium Ion batteries question

I know nothing about the lithium batteries used for automotive use, but they are the battery of choice for Radio Control cars and planes. The fly in the ointment is the safety in charging these batteries. If not done safely and properly, they will cause early failure and a fire is a real threat. So the charging system would have to be designed to safely charge them. Probably completely different than regular automotive batteries as we know them now.

RE: High definition TV

First off: You have to have an HD Direct TV receiver. I have a HD TV but my receiver is not so all I view is regular TV not HD.

RE: I-25 Albuquerque, New Mexico to I-10

If weather is good, go the I-40 to Flagstaff and then I-17 towards Phoenix. Flagstaff is the fly in the ointment. Flagstaff is just nasty in the winter time.

RE: Were coming to America

Best of luck on your RV travels. You've been a silent member for 3 years so I'm sure you have a good idea of the ins and outs of RVing. Hope our paths cross while you are here.

RE: Do any of you use those Bumper hitch racks?

Frankly: If you have to have a rack like that on the front of your pickup, you're probably hauling too much stuff. Not a flame, but realistically I'm betting that you could inventory and find a lot more stuff you aren't using and eliminate it and have room for the stuff you would carry up front.

RE: The Cold

I woke up to 40 degrees in Holbrook, AZ in the parking lot of a Diesel Garage. Waiting for parts for a $3000.00 repair job on the radiator fan and fan components. Wind warnings are high and of course we're parked broadside to the windy side. 4 days so far and at least 3 more to go......At least we're plugged into a 20 amp circuit.

RE: Coax connectors

The push-ons are what I have been using and they just lose their tightness and cause more problems than just taking the time to use the screw-on connectors. The others displayed look like they are what I'm going to go to at this time. Thanks.
