RE: Tow Vehicle/Trailer Road Damage Protection

Roads are great except for the frost heaves and you will notice the first one. Your truck trailer combo will allow access pretty much unlimited. Plan on spending much more time than you currently allow only because its a great place. Bring a tool box with an elect meter and spare fuses. The long road will id the weak links. pops

RE: Do the Stewart/Cassiar highway to or from AK?

Stewart-Hyder is a must do stop After watching the photographers watch the dying salmon for 4 hours we gave up on seeing the bear. Apparently they , the bears, come out early which at that latitude is pretty early. As we drove back into town, right in the middle, a black bear walks out into the road, stops traffic. and continues on into the woods. I asked at the Pharmacy/store why would the bear be in the middle of town when he should be out eating the salmon. Store clerk sez even the bears like to get away from the tourists occasionally. When going back into Canada through customs I noted that a very large caravan with 30 plus class A and toads were going in the other direction. I mentioned to the lady custom agent that there is not sufficient parking space in the US town to stop all those vehicles. She said they will stop. But getting them untangled to leave will take a day or two. pops

RE: MICE

Get some good old fashion sticky paper glue and pour a several inch spot on disposal cardboard. Put a piece of sharp cheddar in the middle and you have an environmentally sensitive low co2 non global warming trap. Learned this trick in the middle east where there are a lot of mice pops

F53 air filter change frequency

Just changed out the air filter on my F 53 after 25 m miles and found it to be much dirtier than any car I have had with similar mileage. Apparently the ample space under the front end of this Georgetown class a sweeps up more road grime than the passenger vehicles. Half to go to a 10m mile frequency.. Not an engine problem as crankcase recirculation occurs down stream of filter. pops

Anchorage MH oil change

Any recommendations on getting a lube oil change in Anchorage. That will be about the 5000 mile trip mark and I do not like to go any further even with the synthetic oil. Overhead clearance prevents many shops from the job. Most RVers making the round trip this summer would have a similar issue pops

RE: Quick Release Drive Shaft

All is not stationary when,,rocking the vehicle rotates the rear drive,, The ,,right one,, for each individual is different and therefor undefinable. pops

RE: Quick Release Drive Shaft

Well Grumpy, when you get around to defining the term, right one, for the rv'ing population, I may let you use the term silly. The remco shaft disconnect is a spline collar to engage only when the shaft is not turning from the transmission. Grinding the splines is a gross miss operation and sure to destroy the unit. As there are two alignment tabs, putting the vehicle in neutral with engine off, and rocking the vehicle rotates the rear drive to proper engagement position. If it is an auto transmission my particular vehicle would rotate the drive shaft while in neutral disconnected and engine running resulting in spline clash when trying to engage.

RE: Quick Release Drive Shaft

Had a remco for 3 years applied to a vehicle I already owned. It worked had issues. I would not buy a new/used vehicle to install a remco on. Their are two many other tow compatible vehicles that do not need it. pops

RE: Is .22mag snake shot enough for moccasins?

Its the snake you do not see that will bite, making guns pretty much useless. Carry a good walking stick and thrash around congested weeds before entering. If you see one a whack across the back works. Killed many blackberry picking in south Louisiana pops

Windy season

The late spring has caused the windy season to be late this year in Rockport but it really came in full force three days ago. 100 % humidity grey skys and 20 mph se winds till end of May. Folks leaving will have a very favorable tail wind up through mid continent but watch for tornadoes. Winter texan season is officially over. pops

RE: Leaving Trailer In South TX for the Summer

The past 15 years I have lived in Rockport and summer time temps are typically up to 95 degrees with the sea breeze keeping it cool. The seabreeze however is very humid and condensation is a very real problem. I tried to sue pergo flooring for an improper moisture barrier but they were already bankrupt. Now 95 may be hot to someone up north, its all a matter of benchmark. I lived 8 years in Saudi Arabia with day time highs of 115 to 125 degrees. Thats hot. Leave some vents open. The ac will have a condensing temp lower than set point and if the condensation gets under the rv skin folks will not be happy Pops

RE: Leaving Trailer In South TX for the Summer

One of the worst things you could is leave the ac while unattended for the summer. You will have days when the dew point is lower than the temp inside and condensation will occur under the aluminum or Fiberglas sheeting. Rapid deterioration of the particle board occurs causing delamination and soft floors. Warm and dry is far superior to cool and wet.

RE: Parts

Are you looking for the battery charger 120 ac volt to 12 volt dc. Inverter is normally used to describe a device that changes 12 volt dc to 120 volt ac. Not a typical stock item, but many rvers will have one for boondocking charging of cellphones. To locate the battery charger follow the thickest wire on the house battery and it should lead to the charger. pops

RE: Home dump station

I tried that with my septic tank and there was just not enough free headspace to freeflow a 4 inch dump. Made a mess the one time. If you are connected to a muni sewer the flow capacity should be larger pops

Going Home

Just said goodby to a friend and his wife as they are returning to Missouri in the morning not to return after 28 years of wintering in Rockport. He is a great fisherman and never took a red or trout that was undersize. We will miss him. pops

RE: leaking tv antenna

I have had the problem only when going down the road at 60. Apparently internal cabin pressures fluctuate and suck the water in while raining. except for it being right over the drivers head, I would be less irritated. Spraying seal with silicon lube reduces it. I would sure like to hear from someone with a real fix other than staying out of the rain.
