RE: Just Have To Vent, Thank You ...............

Are you saying you want to dispute the bill for the overnight site but you "ate the meal'? Sounds like other problems besides the campground WIFI to me if that's the case. They did have WIFI, wasn't working at the time.

RE: Best Price for LED lites?

Forgot to add, 3 out of 3 I bought from one dealer had a blinking or led out. Dealer has a good rating but if you want to know which one, pm me.

RE: Best Price for LED lites?

I tested them with a Lux app on my phone at about 1' and got 934 Lux. I have not seen any at that rating. I've been replacing mine lately. Just ordered some more tonight. Do what Alfred622 did and buy 1 of what you think you want. Doesn't seem to matter whether they are the paddle type or panel type although I think the panel type have the possibility of coming untaped. I found that the 24smd 3528 where fine for some applications but a little shy on light in others. You may want to try a 24 3528 and a 48smd 5050 of the same color. Prices for these seem to range from $1.50 to $4.50. As others have said buy from China or Hong Kong.

RE: US DOT Numbers

Companies that operate commercial vehicles transporting passengers or hauling cargo in interstate commerce must be registered with the FMCSA and must have a USDOT Number. Also, commercial intrastate hazardous materials carriers who haul quantities requiring a safety permit must register for a USDOT Number. Has anyone read the above from the FMCSA link posted? I am not a lawyer nor know the law. But I can read. OP was not doing any of the above. Or as dodge boy posted If you are driving to and from work even in a 1 ton and you have nothing in the truck you are moving and getting paid for then you are private. private vehicles do not need DOT#`s.

RE: Insurance Company giving me a hard time

Now they are saying that they feel it is water that caused the sag and is not covered. In 2001, my insurance totaled my 1999 Trail Lite due to water damage. Got $2500 less than I paid for it 2 years earlier. Hope you get it.

RE: Too much tail for the dog?

STOP the assumptions it had something to do with the truck, trailer, or set up. If we did that, we would have to go to bed. And stop watching Ferguson.

RE: Auxiliary Diesel Tank Gravity Feed vs. Electronic pump

We have the Transfer Flow 40 gallon/toolbox. Yes it is pricey compared to the gravity flow, but the price is long forgotten and this thing is nice. Over 720 miles with both tanks full. And just filled up in Va. where we go every 2 weeks at 3.54$ instead of here where it is 3.74-3.97$. The replacement tanks seemed way overpriced for the small increase in fuel capacity. I don't worry about bed space as we travel light and I have a utility trailer for hauling the mower, lumber, etc. The way the automatic transfer works is to keep the ratio the same in both tanks and as they run low they will almost be the same. To me, stopping where and when I want is worth the price. Saving on fuel is a nice bonus.

RE: US DOT Numbers

Do I Need a USDOT Number? What is a USDOT Number? Companies that operate commercial vehicles transporting passengers or hauling cargo in interstate commerce must be registered with the FMCSA and must have a USDOT Number. Also, commercial intrastate hazardous materials carriers who haul quantities requiring a safety permit must register for a USDOT Number. Sounds like you're not transporting passengers interstate. You didn't mention hauling cargo interstate. You did not mention hauling hazardous materials interstate. Without qualifying for one of the above three, the rest of the information on the website has nothing to do with you. And no number needed. Even if this is correct, you will be cited for something.

RE: Removable Pin Box?

RE: Louvered V-gate

One advantage of the V notch is that you can reach further into the bed while standing on the ground. I prefer mine over OEM gate.

RE: 12V Portable air compressor

I have a MV50 which has been extremely handy. However, it does heat up to the point of shutting off unless it is a cool day.

RE: Possible Frame Damage in new to me Travel trailer

any modern RV trailer built today has inadequate chassis under them, How about a 12 year old one? I recently purchased an 18ft, 2002 Thor Wanderer

RE: Going to re-seal my roof ?

As mentioned two biggest is getting the surface clean and rolling it out good. In case you missed it, here it is again. As mentioned two biggest is getting the surface clean and rolling it out good. I did my roof last week and accidently cracked the cover over the bathroom fan. No problem, eternabond. NOT!!! I was sure that the vent was fiberglass, which eternabond is suppose to stick to. Would not stick at all. Would have been easier to get it to stick to a melting ice cube. Anyone know what material might have been used for that vent?

RE: Determining High Temp Settings for TPMS

My TPMS system from TST has a min. temp setting at 158 F degrees. You can set it higher if you want but I leave it set at 158. Wish I could set mine lower. Coming back from Hunting Island July 4 weekend, I was keeping a close watch on temps since mine is a new system. Outside temps were about 90 and tire temps never above 105, and that was on the sun side.

replacing light bulb

Well, here is Mr. Handyman, Jack of All Trades, rebuilding 2nd home--and I can't figure out how to get the bulb out of a dome light in the RV in signature. Not a bayonet, possibly a candalara(sp)bayonet type. Could be a wedge mount but afraid of pulling on bulb. All help appreciated. Thanks

RE: Stuck on I81 in VA with no help from my Allstate Motor Club

Always press "0" when going thru options on menus.

RE: Going over the Insurance Mileage Limit...?

Saved money when DW and I retired when I told insurance co the mileage to/from work =0. The insurance salesman filled our application for us over 30 years ago and had "pleasure" filled in for use. Has stayed that way since then. It's been true on one of the vehicles since May this year.:)

RE: 2008 GMC Yukon MPG?

I can not speak for the 08 but my 2000 extended cab towing my 22 ft loaded to about 6300 plus another 400 in the truck gets between 10-11 hand calculated on the average here in utah Just what my 2000 Silverado got pulling a 6000 lb fifth wheel!

RE: exploding tire

They are not perfect. The fault with it is that the sensors only transmit pressure and temp EVERY 5 MINUTES. (Page 2 of Instruction Manual) I will have to check my manual in the morning. My system is new and I was watching it quite closely and was not taking 5 minutes to show changes in psi and temps. It may have taken 5 minutes when first turning the system on. Thought it was a bad monitor at first.
