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.

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.

RE: Power Wahser to Clean Rear Radiator

Had my rear radiator pulled and cleaned at abou 35,000 miles. I bought the MH used. The slobber tube was extended at the time of the cleaning. Since then, 80,000 miles I try to find a car wash that I can fit into every year or so and use the pressure spray from the rear, carefully. I do not have any overheating problems. Course it helps to start that procedure with a professionally cleaned radiator :)

RE: I am stupid, I am stupid, I am stupid.........

The pairing of wires in same direction is a bit unconventional but not really wrong. As long as the bare ends are not sticking out the ends, which is hard to see in the photo. The yellow wire missed its mark to make a connection and I don't see a second wire in the connector unless its the green wire thats end is not seen.

RE: Campground Question

Heres the scoop: The campground isn't in the 21st century yet. No credit cards???? Heck you can get a scanner for a cellphone now very easily. So you know that the majority of their income is not reported. So records are sparse or non existent to say the least. A lawn chair with a rock on it to keep it from blowing away would have kept your spot secure. Simple stuff. Like you, I would have been POed if it happened to me. But I spend my time complaining about the fuel prices and the government.

Did ya' ever notice?

When the campground has a central dumpster or multiple dumpsters, the wife will walk up with a bag of garbage, with one hand open the lid and at the same time sling the bag into the dumpster and walk off letting the lid just settle down on its own. The husband? He walks up to the dumpster, and with one hand opens the lid and holds it open while he gives the contents of the dumpster a really good once over. Sometimes even moving something out of the way to get a better look...then sling the garbage into the dumpster and lets the lid slam and walks away.... On occasions, the husband will turn around and walk back and re-open the lid to give it just one more double look.

RE: What is the favored air compressor to carry?

I can easily recommend this one. Kobolt from Lowes Its $130 bucks and has a 2.6 inflation at 90 lbs. Pumps up to 150 lbs and is more than adequate for even those higher psi MH tires...I run 105 lbs and its a simple task to inflate them to proper poundage. Plus as a Vet you get 10$ off of the price so that pays for the tax.

RE: Hard Starting

Try starting it without ever touching the accelerator. Don't give it that startup pump.

RE: New (or not so new) SCAM!

We can all read these phonies on this thread and are smart enough to know that they aren't legit. But the sad thing is: They are getting better and better at their scams. Even "smart" people are being taken every day by them. Its not going to go away, they are just going to keep educating themselves and get better and better at their ploys.

RE: Did I Do a Dumb Thing?

I don't think it will have any effect on your emission test. Suggest you run the RV fairly hard just before the test and arrive with it at full operating temperature. Never test a cold engine.
