Heard there was an area south bound with long delays for bridge constrution between Columbus and Cinci. Thinking of the 270 bypass to Dayton to avoid this. Any help appreciated. Heading to Tenn.

RE: Holding tank monitor sensor question

last year in the high heat I started to get false reading of 3/4 full. Flushed tank out with the Hydro flow fitting on the dump hose. It is a right angle with a hose water hose attachment. Then added the enzyme solution for the black water. Filled it with a third tank of water and drove 5 hours to the next campground and dumped. No more problem. The sensors get coated and give the false reading. Try this before you drill holes or try to remove sensors.

RE: Where to bring antenna wire through?

I need to run ham radio coax in for the two radios I use. I went to Lowes and the plumbing section. Looking for a threaded cap and then a threaded section of 1 1/2 PVC. Found a piece about 2 inch threaded and then a cap for it. Through one of the storage compartments doors close to where I wanted the radios I drill a hole in the compartment door. Measured twice for the hole and then sealed it with caulk that locked the section into place. On the outside the cap screws on with a gassketthat I formed and this is how it seals all weather out going down the road. To use the coax just unscrew the cap and pull out the coax which is right in side of the compartment door and direct it to the antennas.

RE: What caulk to use.

Thanks. I knew the self leveling was not the answer for the spouts but Dicor lap sealant is what I was looking for Did not know they made this. Thanks!!

What caulk to use.

I am going to replace my gutter spouts. Got two that will be replaced but not sure which caulk to use or what they had there originally. Thanks

RE: Frozen Battery Cells

To ROYP. I pick up replacement 100AH batteries from the local battery supplier for a fraction of the original cost. They replace them from computer back ups after nine months so they are almost new. The Amish are starting to pick them up to run with solar panels so the have electric without being hooked up to the outside world. This makes it a little harder to get the batteries. 300AH is nice but I physical pick them up and us them in my boat for the electric trolling motor. !00 AH weighs about 60 pounds. How heavy is a 300ah?

RE: Frozen Battery Cells

I found two UPS uninterrupted power supplies and took out the bad or old batteries. Take the batteries into my basement. ran leads from the UPS to these larger batteries for the winter months and use them as back ups in the ham shack or for other things I need twelve volts. Batteries just setting on the shelf in warm conditions could still lose 1% a month

RE: Frozen Battery Cells

It depends on the state of charge in the battery.Electrolite will freeze if it does not have the correct specific gravity. I tried to copy the answer but could not post it. Do a search ""Will electrolite freeze"" and look at the chart. This should help
