RE: How do I make the refrigerator colder?

It is a good idea to freeze and refreeze water bottles but only near the end of a trip would I have room in the freezer to do that. I sometimes wrap a piece of dry ice in a towel and put in the fridge.

RE: Trip Report: Sierra Trout Fishing, Camping and Paddling

Buzz, I have never fished them but have heard of big trout in Blue Lakes above Hope Valley. Red Lake also.

RE: Trip Report: Sierra Trout Fishing, Camping and Paddling

There is nothing wrong with living in NorCal, SoCal a list of things. Lol. I always like the geology on 88, huge lava flows next to glacier worn granite. Hope Valley is a great area.

RE: Just want a good AM portable radio

I have radios that are 20 years old, working fine. Got a CCrain radio with bells and whistles that lasted till just after the warranty ran out. Not a good experience with a high priced radio. I did lik it's functions while it lasted.

RE: Didn't know it was back there!

I have had DRW flats and the only way I noticed is hearing a different sound whil the window was down. Pulled a utility trailer miles down a dirt road not noticing a flat also. Did I mention I wear heading aids. I thump and IR temp quite often.

RE: What did you do to your truck today?

You mentioned tapping the frame. Using studs you just drilled clearance holes?

RE: A reminder to check your tire pressures

I have never seen a 25 psi difference in gauges. I'm guessing slow valve sten leak.

RE: 1121 Lance Tip Out Sag, starting the job

I would suspect the fridge drain as the water source.

RE: Scary things encountered

Doing a winter ski crossing of the Sierras and had a visit from a bear one night. Told the novice with us to deal with the problem and tried to go back to sleep. No way as he beat on cooking pots all night. Bear managed to get one food sack, novice never went out with us again.

RE: Boat hauling

Boat and truck around 50 feet long, no camera. Backing down a ramp is no problem as long as you can get Iined up straight at the top of the ramp. As long as you can't see the boat in the mirrors you are going pretty straight, slight correction the other way when you see the boat. I do recommend one or two rubber wheel checks behind the back wheels when you get out to launch. I have mine on chains that I attach to tie down chains so all I have to do is pull up the ramp when done launching or recovering the boat, just drag them along till I get to a level spot. I have seen too many rigs turn into submarines. Some people use a front hitch but I have never seen a need for that.

RE: Yay! No more commercial registration fees!

Dak, did DMV inspect the truck or just paper work?

RE: Not a good start to Summer

Please post the source of the oil leak when you know it. I don't know about automatic transmissions since I have manuals but does not a torque converter contain a lot of oil and could have leaked. A loss of a lot of motor oil seems more likely, Could you smell tranny fluid? Our summer has not started well either. Within 6 hours of closing on a new house someone broke in and took the fridge, microwave, and shower head. Had we gotten there that night instead of the next Am we would have walked in on them. Mostly glad that didn't t happen because I would have had to deal with the police over a gun issue. My dogs would have gotten involved also.

RE: Low fuel pressure Duramax

Could be bad fuel, has the truck not been used much. I am currently fighting algae in my tank because I did not add biocide over the winter.

Trailer Mover

So I have a small problem. Moving to a new place and while there is a good amount of RV space it is not a straight shot for easy parking. I either need ATV or walk behind powered mover. ATV would be nice but I would not use it much so any personal reviews on movers? I would prefer battery powered over gas or corded.

RE: Hitch mount generator setup.

Very nice work but scary. Some of my friends carry gen sets that way but extend the mounting so the load is higher. Bit of peace of mind in a rear end collision.but not much if full of fuel.
