RE: RoadMaster Base Plate for CRV, -1 or -4

Are you sure that 2014 CRV is 4 down towable? I agree that the 2014 CRV has a different transmission, CVT, and may not be towable 4 down. Better check with Honda before you buy. Just a heads up before you spend the money.

RE: microwave/convection oven combo

Yes use the metal rack with the little legs, set right on the turntable, in the convection but be sure and take the rack out when using the microwave. Also set the temperature 25 degrees below what the recipe calls for. Also watch the bake time, could be more or less time then the recipe calls for.

RE: Put MH on boards or not for winter

I use boards, 2X10, make sure the boards are wider then the tire tread. ````Also make sure the boards are not in a hole that can fill up with rain water, tires should not sit in water especially if they have steel belts as they may rust if the water somehow penetrates the tire tread into the steel belts.

RE: Engine Oil Jug Safety Seals Broken

I would not use it just as I would not use peanut butter or any food product with the seal broken.

RE: Power Gear Jacks

Just an observation, you said you have the emergency brake on but do you have the gearshift in PARK and the engine running? With the engine running the alternator will be putting 13.5 volts into the battery. Give it a try

RE: Removing Norcold Roof Cap

You have to remove the calk. As you have noticed, the screws are recessed. The calk is to cover the heads to keep them from rusting. Correct answer, but the caulk is also to keep the water/rain from leaking through so recaulk when done

RE: Fleetwood Flair High Beam headlights

I believe it is on the turn signal arm, you pull the arm toward you to get high beam and push away from you to return back to low beams. Or pull again to get low beams.

RE: Calif. west bound from I-5 to 101

If your final destination is northern CA, Redwoods, and you don't want to go through the Bay area, SF, then stay on I 5 past Sacramento and go to Williams and take Hwy 20 over to 101, at Ukiah. this cuts out all the bay area traffic that can be heavy at times. If you don't mind the bay traffic, then post this `desire and there are ways around some of it. So where do you want to go?? Note, 101 through SF goes over the golden Gate bridge, which requires you to drive some city streets.

RE: wallpaper border removal

I own a 2007 keystone passport that has a ugly floral wallpaper border halfway up the walls. I want to remove and just leave the neutral wall color. Are there any tricks or traps I should know before I start peeling this stuff off? Thanks. What you are describing is not a border in the sense that most people think of a border. Borders are usually about 6 inches wide. What you probably have is panel board with the wall paper as part of the whole assembly and probably will not come off without damaging the whole wall. I would just paper over it.

RE: Genset success, then tragedy

Good job, now to keep it going, remember to run it at least once a month under half load for at least 1 hour. Keeps the windings dry and the gasoline fresh.

RE: How private are those bathroom/bedroom slides?

Run the fan, it cuts down on the extra sounds, and if that doesn't work, sing!!!! That will work or at least drive the listeners away to a distance out of ear shot

RE: Onan Marquis 5.5 gas no start

Fixed, did a code check(push pre-heat 3x quickly) no codes flashed. pushed start and it ran! I am not aware of a pre heat button on the 5.5 gas generator. Mine has a prime button which runs the fuel pump when you push and hold down the STOP/PRIME button. Hold it for 20 seconds or more or until the pump quits clicking. Then push start button

RE: Setting up 2014 Honda CR-V AWD for towing - bumper removal?

What it is considering and is calling a bumper is inside the Shroud of the decorated bumper. It bolts to the frame member that and has to be removed to mount the base plate. The base plate has a built in bumper that takes the place of the one removed. You then put the "Shroud or decorated facia back on to retain the original look of the front of the Honda. The square tubing of the base plate are then visible through the grill opening, at least they are with the roadmaster base plate. You should save the bumper and reinstall it if you ever remove the base plate

RE: headers

What ever you decide to do, ddo yourself a favor and soak the manifold bolts now and every day with a good penetrating oil. (PB blaster) . And be prepared for a couple of broken bolts along the way.

RE: Truck Stop Lanes

If you are long, use the truck lanes. If you take the autos lane and you don't fit, there usually have no choice but to exit and get back on the freeway, there is no go around in most reststops. So use the truck lanes

RE: What is this? it may be RV related, you never know!

My guess is an fill cap for an underground oil tank. The words "buckeye" is a company that is probably still in business today.They make gasoline and oil dispensing products such as nozzles and tanks and vents. Next time you put gas in the car, look at the nozzle, it might be a Buckeye. There should be a vent pipe also next to the house going above the roof. Could be a hazardous material job to remove it.
