RE: Bleach treated water on lawn?

I power wash my driveway every year and afterwards spray water/bleach at 60/40 and rinse off. Has never seemed to have bother trees and bushes at the edge although the worms do squiggle. I would water my lawn and go on. Of course you could always do a test patch.

RE: Macerator Pro&Con

Or you may want to have the tote tank in the back of a pickup so you won't have to tow it any distance over rough ground. That's another use for a macerator pump. That's what I do but only for gray water. Used it for black one time at home. Didn't want to wait for the five trailer in front of me at the dump station.

RE: Ford is raising their fuel capacities.

Big difference between stopping and stopping for fuel. I would much rather stop at larger rest areas for a leg stretch than a busy truck stop. Just because you have the extra fuel doesn't mean you're not going to stop, it just changes where you going to stop. And that is worth it, especially when having dogs. Once drove 700 miles in a (long)day and none of the stops were at gas stations.

RE: DirecTV Help

Using any number of places get the coordinates for the bird. Load a clear line of site place the dish, set the angles and elevation, connect the coax between the dish and receiver. The one I use also has a small bubble level in it which needs to be exactly level before setting angles and elevation and then the coordinates are spot on.

RE: Eternal bond tape or Dicor?

Was thinking of sending pictures of mine but they are almost the same as Larry. I think that the key to Eternabond is roll, roll, roll, and roll again.

RE: Eternal bond tape or Dicor?

I used Eternabond. Did not bend it. Used 4 straight strips and roll really good.

RE: Solution for damage from flat tires - thoughts?

Had a tire blow at about 62 MPH. My fiver has a metal sheet above the wheel and no damage there. Skirt cracked in one place and I glued it back together. Also the axles are flipped, perhaps the increase in height also helped.

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.

RE: Sound but no picture on my DVD player

Just went thru that with my DVD player. Mine was a bad cable.

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.
