RE: 08 3500 chevy

The only thing I would be a little hinky of is that is not that many miles for an 08 emissions truck. Sounds like a short trip truck to me? 66000 on mine, mostly 225 miles each way.

RE: EVIC symbols? Bad fuel or coincidentally something else?

I put diesel in it. Green button right? You may get in trouble looking for green. Doesn't always work that way.

RE: Getting shocked.

Ok thanks everyone. I found culprit. The heavy duty extension cord I was using must be bad I had the same experience except mine was the adapter between extension cord and trailer cord. Don't remember exact number but checked voltage between bumper and ground(wet concrete) was around 8v.

free win10 upgrade

Question: When is the free win10 upgrade not free? Answer: If you download it and set it up as dual boot along with Win7. I guess technically it is free if it replaces your present Win Os but set up as a dual boot is considered as a different machine and will require the $119 to activate. I don't really want Win 10 but there are some games that will only work on 64 bit machines and I have a few that will run on Win7 but not Win10 and I don't wish to upgrade to Win7 64bit. And probably a dual boot with Win7 64 will put me into the same boat as present. Will probably go to Win10 sooner or later and the $119 won't be felt but, still........ Strange that they tell me my activation code is xxxxx-and show the last four numbers, but don't activate it.

RE: RV.net Access

That is the exact router that has blocked me for weeks. The problem is how to go about getting unblocked.

RE: RV.net Access

I do not have that problem with log-in every time I change forum topics. Most times I do not log-in unless I reply to a thread which is not often. I do have a problem responding--ex; trying to use quotes in responding to threads. Wish I could fix the real problem. I don't remember correctly but I think if you use IP config in command mode using local IPS you will find the exact server where you are getting blocked. I cannot find a way to contact this server. Maybe some tech guru will see this thread and respond. My local IPS was very helpful but only so much they could do.

RE: RV.net Access

For 2 weeks I could not get into RV.net on this computer, laptop, or ipad. A lot of phone calls to local IP for support and found somewhere down the line I was blocked by a server or RV.net for spamming if I remember correctly. Don't know how my name got on a list somewhere but gave up trying to find out. The RV.net administrator was of no help and now I use a proxy server just for this site. (www.proxysite.com and its free) It is my IP address that is blocked so anyone using my router will be blocked. Try someone's laptop or whatever from your house using WIFI and see what happens. Sounds like what you tried using was a translator, not a "proxy site". Maybe the same?

RE: New 5th Wheel ------ Do I pay sales tax in Ohio???

SOME states were hitting people up for sales tax, even though they had already paid in the state where they bought the FW. There was a recent article where IN is considering legislation (seems like it will pass) so that people can take delivery of a new RV =in= IN without having to worry about the possible double-taxation when they take it home. When I bought my FW in Indiana about 3 years ago, I followed as their service manager pulled it into Illinois where I took delivery. If I had picked it up in Indiana I would have to pay sales tax their and NC. No recipriocity(sp) between these 2 states then.

RE: Eternabond vs MFM Peel&Seal

You can buy it a bit cheaper on Amazon: The Amazon is 2.3" compared to the $55 4". Buy the 4x50 roll, you may need it in the future and can be used for other things.

RE: 2008 gmc dually info

. 8-9 MPG's towing maybe typical for trucks of the 2008 era but it is poor for a modern diesel truck. 10-12 towing, 17-19 non towing highway, around town sucks.

RE: Trip to Fort Wilderness end of June

By the way, we like to reserve an overnight somewhere in south Ga. Check out Crooked River. Wonderful park!

RE: Trip to Fort Wilderness end of June

2. Is there transportation to and from Disney World without having to drive? Yes Bus to sites and boat to Epcot Not sure about boat to Epcot but definitely to Magic Kingdom. Also, no direct bus from Magic Kingdom to FW but you can take a bus to Wilderness Lodge(or any other ?) and then take a bus to FW.

repair aqua magic 2

I need to replace waste gate seal on this. I've looked at diagrams for parts but can't see how bowl separates from the base. Anyone know? Thanks!

RE: airbubble from toilet

Don't know what kind of rv you have but on my 5th wheel, the pipe has a 45 degree angle to it going to the tank. If too much toilet paper and not enough water is flushed, it gets stuck in the pipe. A full toilet bowl of water is usually all that is needed to correct the problem. I had one like that except instead of water to correct it, it needed a little prodding.

RE: Accidents versus Safe Driving

I thought I would post my thoughts on the recent rash of accidents and driving habits of some RV drivers. Sounds like a normal day to me.

RE: DisneyWorld's Fort Wilderness

We were there October a year ago and paid $89 a night.That was in the 400 loop.Still expensive but about $40 less than what you would be paying.Don't know if they went up that much in a year or if they charge more at different times of the year? It would probably be our last time there since the whole trip from Pa cost about $3,500 considering fuel,camping,park tickets,food etc. About what we paid last year, 300 or 400 loop, starting the Sunday after Thanksgiving. Went then to see the Christmas lights, which were terrific(some at the campsites pretty good too!). I actually prefer almost any state park to Ft. Wilderness. Just me. For those who think that you're not going bothers Disney, they won't miss you. Won't say when, but the 1st time I went to Disney, I believe that the ticket book for the day was $17 dollars, which was pretty high for us.

RE: what not to do before leaving on a trip

I am leafing a Mexican caravan in just over a week. One of the customers decided to wash & polish his rig and fell off the ladder & broke his heel. Pins & screws time Having broke my right heel in 2001, this is much worse than most broken bones. It usually involves part of the ankle. The loss of some motion of the ankle is not a big deal, it just eventually gets arthritic and that starts the constant pain. I just had my ankle fused this past January. Now full loss of lateral movement which I don't even notice and have done 6-7 mile hikes and this is after years of everyday wondering if I would make it thru the workday. I do hope that your customer does not fall;) in the category I just described. As for those that wish to drive with your left foot, IF your doctor has no driving listed with restrictions, your insurance will PROBABLY not cover you.

RE: 2015 GMC Sierra 3500 - Check Trailer Wiring

My 2008 IBC was replaced under factory warranty. Don't remember what message but similar to what you quote; however I also had same messages when things were wrong such as loose connection.
