RE: Trailer Brakes Are Locking Up

I have a cheap Reese Controller from Walmart in my PU. It has two adjustments- How much brake force is applied and how fast the pressure is applied. It also has a button/lever so I can apply the trailer brakes only. With the lever I can apply a little or a lot of braking without the PU brakes. I can't imagine towing without personal control. I set braking heavier when trailer is loaded.

RE: 94 Brave LP Tank Shocker!!!

I had one that leaked if it wasn't all the way open or closed. I found a jam nut on the valve shaft that I could tighten to make it seal. Look for a nut under the handle that is around the stem.

RE: Tis The Season for good pie crusts

I just made an apple pie last week. The only crust for me is the Crisco crust!! You usually find it on the can. It is so simple, Crisco, flour, salt and water!! I have been told all kinds of liquids to use instead of the water BUT I am hooked on the original and never found the variations as good. I gave half of the pie to a friend who gave me the apples so in stead of me gaining the 5 lbs she gets half of that too!!

RE: Today's Entree in the Big Easy

Per the instructions (and experience) do not cook with the top screen on! BUT put it on toward to end of cooking then it causes the rays to reflect back in and brown the meat. And you don't cook by time, the internal temp is your guide.

RE: Top of the Grapevine, lost all air pressure!

What you need to learn from this is that you need to see where normal is on your air pressure gauge and any time you find it lower you need to investigate why. Most problems will come on slowly and the sooner you detect them the safer you will be.

RE: Please share your favorite blueberry recipes. :)

Pancakes are my favorite. My berries are so big (size of a dime!!) that they stick out of both sides of the pancake! I add cinnamon to the batter with or without the berries!

RE: 454 Southwind Popping back at carburetor solved-- revised

The GM HEI Distributor was one of the best ever invented! It is simple and easily plug and play. I have used it to retro older points systems. During the same time period Ford had the Brain Box system. A total DOG to troubleshoot! The only way to check the box was to replace it and when they first came out they cost $150.00 !!!

RE: Blown Engine, 8.1l

If your invoice states "New Engine" then it's time to take pics and call one of those TV lawyers!

RE: Atwood 6 gal gas water heater problems?

just a guess, check to see if the flue is blocked. Dirt dobbers will work their magic in there.

RE: P32 MH Engine Dying Abruptly

My first guess is ignition pick up in distributor. Second guess fuel pump relay/circuit. The oil pressure switch could be acting up. See if it is covered with oil/leaking.

RE: adding a transmission temp gauge on P30 chassis

Something else to consider is if you have electric fans in front of the radiator you can hook up a manual switch (with a on light) so you can add extra cooling. The fans are automatic but a switch gives you extra control. The fans have a relay and you can wire into the control side. I used this switch for faster cool down when coming off of the interstate before shutting down. The temperatures can really build in a hot engine that is shut down too soon.

RE: Salesman's battery switch not working

It might not be a solenoid, it might be a "Latch Relay". They look the same but work differently. If latch relay there should be a fuse controlling it. I had the on/off switch stick and burn mine out.

RE: Dash A/C not working- I can't locate source for new hoses

Hoses are replaceable using the original fittings. With many custom installs the hoses are made to fit the application and are not OEM.

RE: Alternator Quit ( I think)

If you can find a GOOD local Starter/Alternator Shop they can check it and repair it for a reasonable cost. Normally a lot less than new replacement. Alternators are fairly simple in operation and repair.

RE: Front Air Bag Replacement - Chevy P30 Chassis

I did my 1989 Southwind with new air bags and it rode like a dream with just 45 psi in the bags!

RE: Front Air Bag Replacement - Chevy P30 Chassis

Doing it your way you should at least use coil spring compressors! How ever anyone does it make sure that you smooth down the sharp edge where the hole was punched in the A-Frame. I have used a die grinder with a stone wheel but a Dremel or even a drill with a stone wheel will work.

RE: pine sap removal from rubber roofs

I use automotive Brake Clean on painted surfaces but it does remove any wax/protection. You could try it in a small area. Brake Clean is very handy for a lot of things, I even use it for grease stains on carpet. you should keep a can in your maintenance kit!

RE: Brake Pad stuck after releasing Air Brake

Rocking is better than just trying to go in one direction. I have had to move hundreds of semi trailers that had been stored for over a year or more. Beating on the drum with brakes released is a bad idea if you don't have the wheels blocked.
