RE: Other Uses for a Bottle Jack

I used it once to straighten the steps after dw did not listen and cut the corner too tight and caught a stump. I read this thread initally because there was a spot of dirt on the screen. I thought the title said Other uses for a bottle, Jack

RE: Tire Chains?

I carry enough chains to cover the requirements of where we travel. I have never put them on. If the road conditions require chaining up I stay put until conditions improve. Unfortunately, if you're on a schedule, this isn't always possible. I therefore always try to add a few "what if" days to my schedule. We have a winner!!!!

RE: Opinions on heat strip for A/C

I had an 18' bumper pull and the heat strip kept it toasty down into the 40's. Never had the oportinity to test it at lower temperatures. The thermostat kept it from getting to hot.

RE: Full Monty at the Cat scale

Come on, you expect us to believe you went camping with only ½ case of beer? x2 Actually- I think it is 1/2 a truckload of kegs. That is why the weight is so high.

RE: Monitoring the factory supplied tpms on the toad

If I add an additional TPMS system - should I re-balance the tires? Nope! :C Sorry - but I got to ask the question - why not? I am adding weight to the one side of the wheel.

Valve stem extenders and wheel balance

I have searched for this a bit and have not seen an answer. How do you compensate for balancing the tires when you add valve stem extenders to your duallies? I am going to have to get new tires probably sometime next year. So at the same time, I am going to at least get metal valve stems - but also whatever I need to make my life easier when checking the tire pressure on the dual's. But I dont want to break things at the same time.

Monitoring the factory supplied tpms on the toad

Does anyone have a system that monitors the factory installed TPMS on the toad? i.e. I have a Jeep Liberty that came from the factory with TPMS and when I am towing it I would like to monitor the tires.

Claire has crossed the rainbow bridge

http://www.beaglenews.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/6-199x300.jpg We saved her just in time from the pound, skinny and covered in fleas and ticks. She took many hikes with us, and had several good times pointing and retrieving quail. She put up a good fight against a sudden onset of epilepsy and blindness, however, things went downhill recently. She joins her camping cousin, Annie the beagle, who is waiting for her. Goodbye Claire! Hunt on!

RE: Camping in a winterized TC

Whereas the main ingredient of RV antifreeze is ethyl alcohol, the same alcohol as in beer or wine. Non-toxic...except in extremely large doses! RV antifreeze is not ethyl alcohol!! It is propylene glycol - not going to make you drunk but not particularly good for you either. It is non-toxic for most people in small amounts. It may be more toxic to your pets. Ethylene glycol (ordinary antifreeze) is highly toxic, pets love it because it is sweet tasting but it is a very bad way to die. Darn! I was going to ask what was a good mixer with RV antifreeze. I remember a post from some time ago where someone said they used cheep vodka.

RE: Camping in a winterized TC

http://www.beaglenews.com/images/BallField20121227.jpg Hassle? What hassle? Campgrounds all to yourself, hiking trails without all the (insert your favorite kind of nut case), no need to run the generator cause you need A/C. I dont see any hassle! This is my favorite time to go camping!

RE: old school observation.... tire whacker

Why do people call coppers LEOs? Always makes me think of Leo Gorcey, you know, from the Dead End Kids and Bowery Boys. Law Enforcement Officer

RE: Using "Overdrive" when hauling TC?

If it keeps shifting up and down - lock out the overdrive. Otherwise, let the computer do its job.

RE: Making the bed easier

I'd have the maid do it.

RE: old school observation.... tire whacker

They might as well take that stick or ball peen hammer and whack the hood of their truck to see if it needs oil. That is not the correct way to check oil. You will only scuff the hood of your truck doing that. The correct way is to tap on the side of the oil pan. :B
