Might have water in the gas. Was it sitting before you bought it?

RE: Old Fashion North Carolina Hotdogs

I love a good Chili/cheese Dog! Or a "Cheese Coney" as they are called in Cincinnati where I grew up. If you haven't discovered it yet Walmart Hotdog Chili is very good!! (Great Value Brand) The really good news is IT'S ONLY 50 CENTS A CAN!!! I have bought extra cans and given them to friends. They can buy their own dogs and cheese.

RE: My experience with front air bag installation

One important step I had to do was to grind down the sharp knife-like edge on the hole in the bottom of the A-frame. I used a Die Grinder with a stone bit but a Dremel Tool would work too. I cut the old bags in pieces with a reciprocating saw.

RE: Leaky fuel tank

A good shop that knows what they are doing could braze the holes if the metal around them is sound. I have soldered, brazed and welded may fuel tanks including Semi Tanker Trailers. As long as they know how to clear them it's not that hard.

RE: All Electric Motorhome ?

Since about 50% of the US electric is produced in coal fired plants these "wonderful" electric vehicles are at least 50% Coal Powered! Try explaining that to the over educated. They will argue that the electric comes from the wall socket!

RE: How to test my alternator: SOLUTION

You might have an intermittent problem, worn brushes or electrical component failing. Checking the battery voltage engine off then on would show how it's doing at that moment. A shop would know how to load test it.

RE: Water Filters - need help

My home is on a well and I have a whole house filter and a filter on the fridge ice maker/drinking water. I buy the filters at Walmart in the 2 pack and they are cheaper than the home improvement stores. With the carbon filter I have excellent tasting water!!!

RE: Re roof my 1995 newmar

As to cost to repair there are too many what if's. BUT if you don't know what you are doing you need to have a pro work on it. (some pros are much more experienced than others!!!) Making an uninformed repair could lead to more/permanent damage that could be really expensive to correct.

RE: Front tire pressure

When ever possible you need to set/adjust pressure when tires are cold/not driven. Sidewall numbers are maximum pressure.

RE: Got this nice Ham Bone! What to do?

Large pot, bone, 2 lb frozen mixed veggies, taters, onion and Barley. Water as needed. Bring to boil and let simmer until taters are soft and meat has fallen off of the bone. The longer the better for the flavors to blend. Even better when re-heated as left overs! I had a problem with a spiral sliced ham bone. The slicer nicked the bone a bunch and I had bone chips in the soup.

RE: 1984 fleetwood southwind project

A squeaking Alternator can be that it is charging heavily. Is the battery charge low from working on the M H? Might also be the emissions air pump. ????

RE: 1984 fleetwood southwind project

The wobble could be any number of things from the tire to suspension parts. Even wheel alignment can cause it. You will need to eliminate the cheap things first so you don't waste a lot of money needlessly. Even a good grease job might make a difference. A common problem with the Chevy 1 tons was front brake hoses failing internally and keeping one or both front brakes dragging. The front air bags were inside the coil springs. I changed them on a 1989 Southwind that I had. The bag kit was less than $100. There are posts on here on the easiest way to change them. I ran my front and rear at 45 psi and it rode like a dream!! Your best bet is to make a list of things that need attention and set their priority. The good news is most chassis parts are still available, NAPA is your friend. Be careful of some of the advice you will get on the internet, they will have you replacing everything including the nut behind the wheel! :)

RE: Why would anyone want a pressure cooker?

I have a Mirror aluminum PC and a T-Fal stainless steel and I have to say the stainless steel is worth the extra cost. It heats up faster and is easier to clean. I also just use the pot for soups, pasta or hard boiling a lot of eggs.

RE: Why would anyone want a pressure cooker?

I cook most Veggies in my pressure cooker. Growing up my Mother always cooked Holly Vegetables! (she boiled the hell out of them!!) :) That's what I am use to and like but the P cooker leaves the flavor in. My favorites are cabbage (comes out sweet but not soggy) and boiled peanuts. For boiled peanuts- add green peanuts, water and salt. Cook 30 minutes on the perk. Then !!!! let sit until cool! If you don't let sit and cool the peanuts are cooked but are dry with no salt in them.

RE: Looking for a marinade for Pork Chops

I just use the Italian Dressing and try to marinate overnight in the fridge turning them a few times. Even the dressing from Dollar Tree works great. When I put the chops on the grill I pour the marinate on them. It runs off and smokes them too. The aroma from them cooking will drive you and anyone down wind crazy!

RE: Today's Entree in the Big Easy

Interesting pan, oil drip? Yup, motor oil drip pan picked up at Walmart. Nice (cleaner) for keeping temp gauge, cooking basket etc off the bare ground. The cooker has it's own drain pan, I think the OP is using the big pan for staging the cooker off of the ground.

RE: Hush puppies

I just buy Hush puppy mix in the store. You will find it in the flour area near the fish batters and bread crumbs. You just add water, the good thing is you can make as much or as little as you want!

RE: 1997 Vortec 454 head gasket

45,000 isn't much for a timing chain and would require a whole lot more work tearing everything off the front of the block. Once they remove the accessories on and over the heads they are down to the chain cover. The chain has at least reached it's half life, maybe more.

RE: Tag axles?

The Tag Axle adds a lot of stability with the increased capacity. Have you ever noticed how stable those commercial buses are as they blow by you like you are standing still on the interstate! :)

RE: 1997 Vortec 454 head gasket

Glad you are happy but thats some pretty stout money for a head gasket..... Assuming he is counting the towing also it's not that bad for a first class repair. Most motorhomes you can't even see the cylinder heads much less R&R them without a lot of labor! I hope they are replacing the timing chain while they are that far in?
