RE: Do you exercise your generator in the winter?

What about the farming equipment? Combines are only used a couple of months a year. Most tractors set all winter.

RE: Do you exercise your generator in the winter?

I added a switch to the electric fuel pump. Now when I know that I'm not going to use it again for quite some time I run it for a while to get it warm, then turn the fuel pump off and let it run out of gas. Been doing that for several years.

RE: Screw Hole Too Big

Another way if wood is steel wool stuffed in the hole.

RE: Locking wheel nuts - Ford

I took a box end wrench of the right size and heated it with a torch and bent it to a right angle. Works fine, with the help of a bar.

RE: Replacement thermostat for Coleman Mach 6536A335

Do other manufactures, like Honeywell, make a replacement for the Coleman 8330-3362 ? Dusty

RE: Teflon tape

The first time you pay an RV service place to pull little pieces of yellow teflon tape out the orifices on your furnace, water heater or cook top, you'll stop using tape and go to something like Loctite teflon dope. That happens only if the tape is improperly applied. As long as you wind it on clockwise and put it on the threads only, it won't be a problem. Do NOT put the tape, or any pipe dope, on the first 2 threads from the end of the pipe. Dusty

RE: Gas valve shut off for engines when in storage?

For the generator there is an electric fuel pump, just add a switch to turn off the pump, then run the generator until it dies.

RE: Charging Chassis Battery

We have a 2003 Itasca Spirt 24'. It has the momentary switch on the dash that temporally joins all batteries together. When the mh is parked for more than 2 weeks I block that switch on. Dusty

RE: Water heater anode rod change frequency

In our area for a stick & brick home, when ever I instal a new water heater heater I remove the anode rod, if it is left in a few short years the hot water will smell like rotten eggs. I'd rather not say how old the water heater is in the home we moved out of a couple of years ago. I've found that using a water softener will make a water heater last many, many more years. Dusty

RE: WONDERFUL! Aluminum Chinese Wire

At one time, maybe still there was a copper coated/plated wire, maybe romex. Some of the heavy copper conductors/wires are tinned. They could be confused for aluminum. It appears to me, from experience, that if an aluminum conductor is going to be near or fully loaded, it ought to be 2 sizes larger. Dusty

RE: 12V Electrical wiring - wire nuts vs crimp connections

In my book the best wire nut is the Scotch Loc. I've seen some wire nuts that after installed and checked by pulling on the wires to be sure they were secure, would then fall off when I was tucking them it the box to put the cover on. Dusty

RE: Liquid Electrical Tape? Lifespan?

3M has a product called Scotch Coat, it's been out for a long time. It comes in a can with brush in cap. After it's been opened it will leak out if it tips over in your tool box. It's like a real thick shellac. It seal thanks very well. Over many years it will dry out in it's can. I've never used liquid tape, but in my book something taped an then coated with Scotch Coat is very hard to beat. Dusty

RE: water heater leakin pressure release valve

The T/P valve is a safety system and should NEVER be plugged. Dusty

RE: Putting MH insurance "to sleep"???

At one time we had an older car that we left in Florida year round, we are Snow Birds. We used Progressive Insurance on it, they have a low milage plan where they send you an e-mail every 6 months and ask for an odometer reading, and base the premiums on miles driven. Dusty

RE: Is grease/lubrication a DIY on your rig?

Anyone ever have a problem with a bearing where there is a plug instead of a grease zerk? If so do you think that replacing it with a zerk and greasing would have saved the bearing? At how many miles should the plugs be replaced with a zerk? We have a 2003 E-350 with 80,000 miles and not had a problem yet, put been think about replacing those plugs. Dusty
