RE: Super Bowl Half Time

I'd much rather watch a College/High School Matching Band preform at half time vs ANY of these so called celebrities/singers/rock bands/hip-hoppers etc.

RE: 20lb Horizontal Propane Tank out of date....

Thankjs everyone for the suggestions. my 2004 tank does have the OPD valve and the new type threads. My problem is that NONE of the bulk propane suppliers in my area do the recert. I spent a lot of time on the phone yesterday calling welding supplys, hardware stores RV sales/, etc. etc. Still waiting on one call back. The closest recert place to me is Blossman Propane in Bedford Va. The problem there is that the recert guy also does deliveries, so a **** shoot if he is in. Plan B is to use a regular BBQ tank on the ground with an extension hose. What a pain..... Suburban Propane in Roanoke doesn't do re-certs? Amerigas has always been iffy..but Suburban is one place I thought WOULD do it.

RE: 2015 SRW Ram 3500 Cummins (First year review)

Good write up.........nice to see real experience review. My 2007 with the 5.9L still puts a big ole grin on my face towing or not. Towing a 14K 5vr up 6-7% grade in cruise at 65 mph and I just smile Yours get better non-towing mpg but close to same towing I added an Exhaust Brake back in '07 a few months after purchase......BEST MOD I did! I run Michelin At2 tires.......Fronts are 55 psi all the time, rears 80 psi towing and 45 psi non towing. Get roughly 60K I do like my tractor motor......the wrapper is OK Hope you like yours as much as I do mine 10 yrs down the road :B

RE: Gas side of fridge out

No spark.. Then issue is back at circuit board or with spark electrode (positioning, gap, high tension wire contacts) IF spark electrode is NOT getting DC Voltage then neither will the gas valve solenoid.

RE: Gas side of fridge out

Thanks for the tip. I've done everything except soaking the valve. But it's days are numbered. Thanks the valve doesn't get soaked....just the orifice Getting spark?

RE: Different Electric Heater Question?

Old-Biscuit 09/29/16 04:45pm Fifth-Wheels
RE: Gas side of fridge out

Does it swap to GAS..fridge in AUTO mode and you unplug AC ?? Does it go to GAS in manual mode? Does the spark electrode produce a strong spark? When it sparks do you feel gas valve solenoid click/buzz/vibrate OR have you checked for DC Voltage at solenoid while electrode is sparking? (Gas valve only gets DC Voltage during sparking event for 6-8 seconds) Does Main Flame light off at all? Have you cleaned gas valve orifice.......unscrew/soak in alcohol then blow with air?

RE: What to do first?

For those that have essentially gone into fulltime mode and setup residency in a different state, what changes did you have to make to any existing wills/living trusts? :@ Updating a Will for a 'change of address' is not necessary ---Will remains valid. Just make sure Attorney/Executer is notified of your new address for any future correspondence. We did update our Wills ----just like to keep them current. But not legally necessary---unless specific property (house/land) is bequeathed in Will As for question on Banks. No Banking Institute is NATIONWIDE. BUT cash via debit cards IS available Nationwide-----ATMs, cash back when shopping etc. We still Banking Accounts via same one we used for years in CA. Just change of address on checks, accounts, records but same CA Bank Course we also are paperless....billing/statements etc. so which Brick/Mortar building isn't an issue

RE: What is the best BBQ grill

Nice but we don't carry charcoal when on the road. Don't like the clean up. Almost NO clean up involved. Load up with charcoal......fire it off.......cook If going to use next day put lid on and close all vents Reuse next day etc. If NOT and going to break camp next day...leave lid off and charcoal burns down to ash and grate burns off clean Next morning....dump cold ash. Put lid on close vents, bungee cord over lid and stow 7 yrs FT Traveling. No mess, great flavor/cooking and charcoal bad cheap/easy to pack.

RE: What to do first?

All good suggestions Our priorities *Go to paperless billing/banking *Set up mail-forwarding service in domicile state. They can be very helpful with other services. *Tell family/friends.......come get it NOW as for house stuff *Donate items ASAP.....don't wait *Outfit RV with KNOWN items needed, then GOT to keep items then THINK we need items (then go thru again and really evaluate YES/NO) Have an Estate Sale----------everything sold in one day----GONE no hassles and MONIES in our pocket (didn't even have to lift a finger...just sat and watched) *Change of addresses to everything one/companies/bank accounts-WILLS etc

RE: Purchase a hail damaged rig?

Just think of the better mileage with the dimples due to less wind resistance.....just like a golf ball (or the Myth Busters Car). Serious...... Was this trailer 'totaled' by insurance company? Does it have a clear title or a salvage title? Type of roof? Cosmetic damage or more intense? Hail usually is followed by RAIN? Lot of factors to consider and INVESTIGATE

RE: Trailer brake shoe wear

Typical trailer electric brake shoes material is 3/16" (new) and replace when down to 1/16" Hairline heat cracks are normal
