RE: Michael Waltrip on Dancing with the Stars !

Just goes to show ya'......if it were Dale Jr on Dancing with The Starts, he could win it with a leg in a cast. Isn't it great that all the NASCAR fans are coming together to keep Michael dancing????

RE: Replace Workhorse W-22 fuel pump @ 26,000 miles?

Heres my experience with Workhorse chassis and fuel pumps. We ran a fleet of Workhorse chassis step vans. One unit had a long history of fuel pump failures. It was an out of town vehicle with a regular route around NM. The pump would fail in one particular town each time. Started to blame the driver being in camp with a local garage and claiming the replacement and splitting the cost of replacement....turns out, this driver always planned a fuel stop in this town and was always nearly empty. Found out that the pumps need a quantity of fuel to keep it cool. When you run on near empty, the pump can overheat and fail. Moral???? Don't let your tank get below a quarter tank if you have a Workhorse chassis.

RE: Yackity Yack

I understand the irritation of the situation and I wouldn't be able to use the self restraint that you possess but: it took 13 1/2 years to find this uncomfortable situation.....it'll pass and life will go on. It could be worse....ie; wind chimes??? yapping dog(s)????? bikes with plastic training wheels up and down the road????? herd of drunks arguing and fighting???? need I go on :) :) :)

RE: 50 amp to 50 amp dog tail

No, not at all, a 50/50 is whats pictured and I would have lost some money betting that there wasn't such a thing. :) Maybe it is called a dog tail....I'm not betting on anything against that either.

RE: 1st time using Coach-Net

I've only had one experience with Coach Net in 9 years. I'm dead in the water and they sent a wrecker out 90 miles to rescue me, haul me 90 miles to a Freightliner facility and had an appointment set for me on my arrival. It doesn't get any better than that.

RE: AirTab

I have no first hand knowledge of how well or poorly they work on a truck or RV, but.... I fly RC planes and two of my newer plane purchases have them on the top of the wings. Its hard to say if they improve performance or not but somebody did some research on their effect and decided to include them on some of the newer RC planes.

RE: Stupid question about filling tires

I carry this one in one of the storage compartments... Always have my own source of air.. http://www.lowes.com/pd_57655-30449-0200382_4294795218__?productId=4686711&Ns=p_product_qty_sales_dollar|1&pl=1┬ĄtURL=%3FNs%3Dp_product_qty_sales_dollar%7C1&facetInfo=Exactly what I have....High psi and high rate of recovery and at Lowes you get the vet's discount which more than pays for the tax.

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.
