RE: Propane - when is a fill a true fill

It's been my observation that not all propane dispensers are trained equally. Some may use a 'standard' weight for your cylinder instead of actually looking at the tare weight stamped on the collar, then adding for the weight of the nozzle and unsupported hose.

RE: living in a 5th wheel gas or electrict $$$

A lot depends on your local costs for electric and propane. I've recently changed my philosophy about water heating though. At one point I read that it was easier to keep that water hot than it was to get it hot from scratch. Well, that may be I'm using much less propane now that I'm only heating it when I need it.

RE: HELP - Need FL site over holidays

You could start looking here, then work your way out for whatever distance you feel is reasonable for you.

RE: 50 amp fiver - 30 amp service

It could get tricky in the winter if you're running multiple electric heaters. As long as they're on separate circuits you should be OK. If you try the toaster, coffee maker, or hair dryer at the same time you'll probably trip a breaker.

RE: Seasonal working at UPS during Christmas rush..??

please keep us up with your deal with UPS.. its nice to get an inside prospective to this opportunity. Not much more to tell. No callback yet despite documented experience in seasonal positions. I suspect I've hit that gray ceiling.

RE: Stationery Living

and the weather forecasts. Your profile doesn't say where you're at but 5ers can be very expensive to heat in extreme cold conditions or cool in extreme heat conditions.

RE: Looking for good location in central Florida

I haven't been to any VA clinics but there's another, fairly new one, in central FL on the east coast. http://www.viera.com/vieramedicalparks/vaclinic.aspx

RE: Black water problems

Try getting about a 4 ft length of 1/2 inch PVC. Ram it down through the toilet until the pyramid is broken up. It could take a while.

RE: Seasonal working at UPS during Christmas rush..??

To the OP: after going through the UPS interview I have a few more answers. Starting pay down here for driver helper is 8.50/hr. That's lower than Amazon and no campsite included. A group of 25 of us got briefed on the requirement for the job. Yep, it's physical. Yep, the hours can vary based on daily needs. Men are allowed conservative sideburns and mustache. Women are allowed earrings and can put their hair in a ponytail. Men are not allowed earrings and must cut their hair. Neither sex is allowed visible tattoos or piercings. As far as the initial briefing went, it was very company-centric. I've also worked the sugar beet harvest and Amazon Christmas rush. Both of those companies went out of their way to tell us how much they appreciated the fact we were there to work. UPS - not at all. I guess since their greatest need for help is in cities/towns with large labor pools, they can afford that attitude.

RE: Black Water not draining

Thanks all. I didn't leave the cable open all summer. I just went we have been using it since the summer. I was pulling the valves and just assuming the black was draining with the rest. Here over the last few weeks is when I noticed the gauge was showing it was not empty. I got a 25 foot snake I'll tryout this weekend once I get down there. I assume dumping a gallon of bleach wouldn't hurt anything right? Just trying to think of chemicals that could help break down any solids to assist if it's not s broken cable and it's just a clog... Gauges are notoriously inaccurate. If that's your only concern you may be getting worked up over nothing. Bleach will disinfect, not break down solids.

RE: Black Water not draining

If you have a cable operated dump valve, it's also possible that the connection has broken right behind the frame. If that's the case, you can drop a small portion of the underbelly and pull that cable. If you have a blockage at the outlet, your best bet is to get the valve all the way open and let nature/gravity take its course. Before you go too much further, you should add a clear sewer extension to the end of your pipe so you can actually see what's going on instead of relying on sound.

RE: Seasonal working at UPS during Christmas rush..??

I just finished the online application for UPS (driver helper). The last step in the process was giving me a date/time/place for an interview. I looked at the info twice before realizing that it wouldn't take place at a UPS facility. Instead, it will be at the county job force office. So, I can only assume that there will be a packed house at the appointed hour. We'll see if my Amazon experience helps me to stand out from the crowd. BTW, part of the online app mentioned that any seasonal hires interfacing with the public would have to adhere to UPS appearance guidelines. For me, that will mean shaving the beard if I get hired. Not a biggie since I keep it short anyway and it won't take long to grow back.

RE: Monetizing videos on YouTube: Experience/Comments

I suspect he's trying to make money from videos that he posts on YouTube. Not strictly a technical question, more a business question if that's the correct interpretation.

RE: Propane Tank Recertification $$$

I would hope that 25 bucks includes a refill.. IF IT DOES, get 'em re-certed, should be good for 10, not 5 years or so I thought. As for me.. Well, it's a motor home, no re-cert needed. Nope, it's 5 years if the letter E is also stamped next to the new date. This is usually the case. There's another recert method which, if memory serves correctly, is good for 7 years but it's more expensive and fairly rare to see.

RE: gray water tank - Wolf Creek 850

I would suspect a tank cutout still in the tank.

I have a ceramic heater but it doesn't make a dent in the cold on mornings like this. I tried running two but it trips the breaker. Until your furnace is repaired, make sure your 2 heaters are on separate circuits. Also, if you can select settings individually do NOT leave them on the highest setting.

RE: Suburban water heater ?

Thanks for the link to the video. I had run some hot water out of the tank, then turned on the electric side before test with my voltmeter.
