RE: Tow dolly without brakes

Two months ago I bought a 2016 Kia Sportage from Hertz Car Sales in Winter Park Fl. (got great deal too!!) I rented a U-Haul Dolly there and towed the SUV 130 miles home with my 2004 Chevy Silverado X-cab. SUV stated weight is 3300 lbs. I drove semi's (all variety's) for many years but never used a tow dolly. The SUV towed like it wasn't even there! A couple times when looking in rear view mirror I was startled thinking why is that guy following so close! I ran 65-70 mph though the dolly was marked 55 mph. SUV wasn't that heavy and dolly had 12 ply tires so I felt safe. The dolly did not have surge brakes. Just an after note- with the tire straps, vehicle safety chains and ramp storage/securing make sure you double check everything!

RE: Oil Filled space heater

I just bought one for use in my home a month ago. (Lowe's $36. w/military disc) I use it to keep my bedroom warm without running central heat. I leave the door open and it still keeps it comfortable. It has safety tip over and over temp. Instructions say at least 3' on all sides and I find that is sufficient. I did see them at Olie's in Plataka Fl. for $29. so check around. Very happy with it.

RE: Short in house wiring

Problem could even be a wet/damp wire. It only takes mili-volts to trip GFCI.

RE: American car dolly?

I recently rented a U-Haul Dolly to bring home a new/used car that I purchased. I had to tow the Kia Sportage over 100 miles home with my Pick Up. I drove semi's (all varieties) for over 30 years but never had used a tow dolly! With my new experience I would recommend making up a check list so you don't forget any of the steps to hook up. I am pretty through but I can see how easy it could be to forget a step when hitting the road and it could be costly! My biggest problem? WHY WAS THAT GUY FOLLOWING ME SO CLOSELY when I would glance in the mirror! :)

RE: Crock Pot Pulled Pork

Older thread but the holidays are coming so my pork butt favorite. Local groceries often have pork butts under $1.00 a lb. ! I have the butcher cut butt in half (no charge!) and I cook one cheek at a time and freeze one. :) I put in the crock pot at 8 am with fat side up topped with one large onion sliced and add a half bottle of Italian Dressing. Set temp 280-300* and it is ready about 5 pm. It is fall apart tender! Let left overs cool, put in fridge and the fat can be removed from the top easily. I have even froze portions for later meals.
