RE: Shelf Life of Butane Lighters? ("Prepper" Question?)

There are refillable grill/stove/cigarette lighters available and there are cans that hold a fair amount of butane for refilling them. You stick the nozzle on the can in a hole in the end of what you are refilling and press to refill. See HERE

RE: Furnace Fan won't turn off, 2004 Alpha 40'

If the high temp cut-off thermodisc switch fails, what you are describing happens. Not the only cause for what you describe and not common but does happen.

RE: Free Photo Editor

I checked it out and for a lot of what I do it is great. We have a not free ($70) program called Xara PhotoGraphic Designer which is a pretty good program but is severe overkill for simple cropping and resizing. This guy will work fine for a lot of what I want to do. Thanks

RE: Choosing an RV for full timers

TTs have very little storage compared to 5th wheels. At least that is true of the ones I saw while full timing for 10 years. I did see a few people full timing in TT though. One thing many people don't realize before they start full timing is how much the stuff they need/want in their RV will weigh. We found and a lot of full timers have said that about 1500 pounds per person or more is desirable.

RE: Stains in kitchen sink

Three things work for me. 1) Add bleach to water in bowl and let it soak. 2) Soft Scrub with bleach. 3) Clorox cleaner with bleach.

RE: Sizing photos

I use an app that integrates into Windows File Explorer. You right click on a photo and a menu comes up. One of the options is "Resize Pictures" Image Resizer

RE: 1995 Chevrolet P30 Air Bag Pressure

I had a 96 motor home on a 95 P30/32 chassis. The vehicle owners manual described how to set the pressure in the airbags. In case you don't have the manual this is what mine said: The owner’s manual gives the following ranges: 4,300 LB front suspensions = 10 psi to 50 psi 5,000 LB front suspensions = 40 psi to 50 psi 5,300 LB front suspensions = 50 psi to 80 psi 5,500 LB front suspensions = 60 psi to 100 psi For the proper adjustment it says to inflate the air bags to the maximum pressure for your vehicle, load the motor home, park on a level surface and then reduce the air pressure as needed to level the motor home but don’t reduce it below the minimum. I have seen other schemes for adjusting the pressure per ride quality, but the 1995 Chevrolet Forward Control Chassis owner’s manual said to do it as shown above. I don't know if it's accurate or not but other posts have said the pressure in the bags affects the alignment and you should have it checked when you get the pressure set. The manual did not mention that however.

RE: Photobucket problems!

I think they changed something because I used to be able to click on "Upload" but I also started getting the repeating sign in although I was already signed in. I found that now I have click on the blank box that says "Click to Upload" at the beginning of each library folder. Then it works fine.This is what the box looks like. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v425/ClayL/upload%20box%20pic_zpsd8zm0s9x.jpg

RE: Interesting tank fill problem

Winnebago may have thought you were talking about the leak being around where the fill assembly screws into the tank. My fill connection had a gasket in the area where the hose connected that went bad and had to be replaced after five or six years of use. The leak showed up when I had it filled at an RV park and I bought the gasket from a propane company.

RE: white hex head self tapping screws. Found Them

I bought some, stuck them in a piece of cardboard and painted them. Took a while but worked.

RE: DirecTV Acct ONLY for RV?

I don't if you still can but I started my Direct TV account as a full timer in 2003 while in TX - motor home was where we lived. At that time my domicile was NH with only a UPS Store mail forwarding address. I later changed my domicile to SD and now to my house in CO. I bought the dish, receiver and tripod from Radio Shack and as I recall set the account up through them.

RE: Oven temperature too low

I don't know why it doesn't go over 300 degrees. I always had to use an oven thermometer on mine because the dial was so inaccurate but it would go up to at least 400 degrees.

RE: Macrium Reflect. Anyone Using it Any Comments?

It may not be supported but Win 10 still has the system image function. I use it once a month or so on my desktop and my wife's laptop. Both have Win 10 64 bit. I have had to use it once on each to restore Win 10 and all programs, data and settings. It went smoothly both times. It can be found at: Control Panel/File History - System Image in the lower left side corner. You need to make a System Repair Disk/USB flash drive. It is needed to restore the system image. It can also be found using "Settings" but is harder to find and takes a lot more clicks.

RE: Defective Ultra Leather on Flexsteel Furniture

Ultra Leather is not vinyl. It is a polyurethane on a rayon fabric and if it is really Ultra Leather and not a cheaper knock-off is very durable. I reupholstered all of my fabric covered motor home furniture with UltraLeather Plus and after 6 years of full time use it was still in great shape when I sold the motor home. There are a lot of cheap knock-offs on the market and some manufacturers have used them. There have been a lot of complaints about those that did. As I recall we paid about $40 or $50 per yard for the UltraLeather and we used about $1000 worth for two captains chairs, the couch and the dinette cushions.

RE: W 10 Backup Question

I am using the Win 10 "System Image" function to make a clone of the OS and all data, programs and settings. I have had to use it to restore everything once on my computer and the one I made for my wife's laptop once. It went smoothly both times. It is available as an option in Control Panel/File History - the option is on the lower left side "Make System Image Backup". It is available using "Settings" but it takes a lot of clicking to find it - much easier for me with Control Panel.

RE: Weight of Gear

We found that 2800 pounds for two people was not enough. Would like to have had 3500 pounds.

RE: 2 cats 1 golden retriever & litter box

We just purchased a new 2015 Cedar Creek Hathaway 38RD which has all of the bells and whistles but not much open floor space so where do I put the litter box (There is a central vac under the first step so it can't go there) and the food dishes so the dog doesn't get fat off of cat food. There is carpet under the table so do not want to put litter box there and carpet in living room and bedroom. I'm stuck. We're brand new to this so our first trip will be loading up the cats and the dog and heading down to FLorida for the winter. Excited but nervous about the pets travelling. Can't help with the litter box because we had room to put it in the hall in front of the closet. Had to move it to open a couple of drawers but it worked okay for 11 years. Did have to make a couple of Plexiglas side wings with a piece in the front with a hole in it too small for the dogs to get into though. Also had to move it over in front of one of the bedroom closets when the slide was in so Niki cat could use it while we were driving. As far as the cat's food and water goes dish we put those on one end of the credenza counter in the bedroom.

RE: Refilling your LP

"Stay A While" is another brand of external tank Tee. I got the version that has a connection and hose for a grill as well as the external tank. Didn't have to mess with the small bottles after that. I also used a 30 pound external tank which was light enough for me to handle and lasted longer than the 5 gallon 20 pound ones. It holds about 7 gallons as I recall.
