RE: Windshield washer fluid in low temps?

Big bear is very close to me, You recommend any good winter camping spot to visit? I like the idea Of a close by very cold area to help me prep & test out things that do & do not work?

RE: Windshield washer fluid in low temps?

Wow. This is so weird for me. I live in a cold place and never even considered that winter winshield washer fluid wouldn't be available in some places. Standard fare here - everybody sells it and some go down to -50 below freeze protection. X2! I have never been out of the Midwest until I started RVing. 'ALL' windshield washer fluid sold in the Midwest is good for below freezing period. You don't even think about it. My first trip down to Florida I ran out of fluid. Picked up a bottle at the gas station and put it in my truck. Spent a few months in Florida and headed back home to Wisconsin. 2 months later during a blizzard in freezing temps I was on the interstate and hit the windshield washers to get the salt off. In a split second my ENTIRE windshield froze over!! Blinded I could not see a thing I almost died that day. Fortunately I found my way to the side of the road without hitting anybody and it took me awhile to figure out what just happened. Yup they DO sell windshield washer fluid that does NOT have antifreeze in it. They sell it in Florida and that was the last bottle I put in. :S That's a scary thought of your windshield freezing over like that & being blind! I'm thinking I might just be forced to look for it as I get close or into Colorado? Maybe I'll just mix up a batch for now. I've been reading alcohol & water & table spoon of dish washing soap? But I would imagine at truck stops or something in a Co they would carry it ?

RE: Windshield washer fluid in low temps?

I just tried to order the Prestone & it can not be shipped to me in Ca. As I expected, being California & all it's lame restrictions.

RE: Windshield washer fluid in low temps?

Bull rider: what is 20/10? When I buy rubbing alcohol I buy it either as a 50% or a 90% alcohol & assume the difference is water? It's either that or I'll just mail order some assuming they will ship the de-icer to my state of Ca. I'd prefer not to have to pay for shipping for the bottle though.

RE: Windshield washer fluid in low temps?

So does the prestone work better than the rubbing alcohol.

RE: Windshield washer fluid in low temps?

I doubt I could find de-icer in Los Angeles? Maybe I can order it on line? Yet seems alcohol would be easier? Considering I could buy it anywhere.

RE: Windshield washer fluid in low temps?

I either buy the windshield fluid that premixed for cold weather, or I add isopropyl alcohol form the drug store. So Rubbing alcohol works? Do you run it straight or mix it into windex? If I wait till I get to a cold weather area, I won't remember till I need it. & being I live in Los Angeles I doubt I could find any of this cold weather formula blends. So I was thinking of doing it at home before we head out. How much alcohol to what ever I'm mixing it with percentage wise? If I'm not running it straight?

Windshield washer fluid in low temps?

If your camping in low temps in the teens or lower. What would you suggest for windshield washer fluid? I know windex will freeze. I was thinking to help keep the windshield free of Ice/frost & driving through snow. Besides letting the engine heat up long enough to defrost the windshield is there any sort of liquids you suggest for this? My rig is a 12 Valve Cummins hot rod & has a 4" turbo back exhaust straight pipe. So in other words it's loud & out of courtesy I try not to let it idle too long in campgrounds or where ever I may be before leaving. Especially if we're leaving at sun up. So...... That brings me to my question. Thanks.

Happy oven cooking buddy. :)

RE: Where can I buy a wedgewood oven gas valve?

Is this it? Wow! I'm gonna have to take a close look at mine & see how it might match to the one I have. That would be awesome if it was a match. How did you search for it? I went straight to the Sears parts web site. They have a lot of replacement parts for all kinds of appliances they don't sell in store. Sears doesn't just service things they sell. I once found a pilot light assembly for a 6 gallon Suburban gas only trailer water heater on their web site when searching for the Suburban part no. on line. Briggs and Stratton parts for my non Sears - MTD Yardman rotor tiller and Murray lawn mower. I had no idea, good to know.

RE: Where can I buy a wedgewood oven gas valve?

I can't justify the price of replacing the oven. I'm like Jimmy, For as often as it would get used it can wait. My tummy & wife would both enjoy a working over though. I never really thought about finding a whole replacement oven though. Something I'll look into.

RE: Pictures of your TC's towing trailers

So I guess these really do work? I've gotta get out there to try mine out.

RE: Where can I buy a wedgewood oven gas valve?

Still looking for this oven valve & or links or numbers to possible sources? Thanks. I have the same range in my '84 (T2130BG). Oven is inop. Pilot works, but the oven doesn't come on. I cleaned the thermocouple by the pilot . No good. Can't find parts anywhere. Any other suggestions? Or do I need to replace the whole range? Sell me your over valve!. :D

RE: Pictures of your TC's towing trailers

In my line of work the triples require a commercial driver if the trailer has triples . Funny how many things change between commercial & private equipment.
