RE: 89 Ford E 350 fuel problems

What is the level of fuel in the tank? If it is below i/4 then that will cause the pump to heat up and fail. It's the fuel in the tank that cools it. If that's the answer, your fuel pump still needs to be replaced. The overheating is simply the warning before total failure. Gary Haupt

RE: Takakkaw Falls in Mid May ??

I think the issue is the fear of an avalanche. That stuff comes down hill like a freight train and it won't stop until it stops...like at the bottom the hills where the path is. And unlike a freight train...there is no warning. Gary Haupt

RE: Takakkaw Falls in Mid May ??

You find a parks employee and ask. If it's safe to do so..away you can go. If not...they'll tell you. You just may need a pair of snow-shoes, but again...an employee should have that info. Gary Haupt

Google Maps show this...rustic...but looks pretty nice. https://www.google.ca/maps/@51.4244087,-116.4335425,217m/data=!3m1!1e3 https://www.google.ca/maps/@51.42467,-116.4334167,3a,60y,201.27h,72.94t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1sMTft7-cCnoLhbY1H9ciutQ!2e0!3e2!7i13312!8i6656 Gary Haupt

RE: 89 Ford E 350 fuel problems

You have switched out the fuel filter, right? I think folks tend to over-fix this problem. If it's not the filter...it's going to be the pump. '89? Maybe rust in the tank has clogged up the pump. Any chance you have run out some fuel into a jug and looked at it? If you can..drain some out and let it sit for a day..maybe run it thru a coffee filter. Gary Haupt

RE: What does 10 TRILLION gallons of water even equate to?

I got my question answered way back...so..Moderator..if you want to close this..won't hurt my feelings none. Or..leave it open to discussions of Global Climate change..and I am good with that too. I'm not really learning much..but it keeps some of the folks off the streets. In that vein..I am of the opinion that it most likely will never been proven that the cycles have been forever, but I am pretty certain that the people who are being forced from homes due to rising sea levels and the high paid engineers in places the world over that see the rising water levels as one of the biggest threats to how things are now...are looking for a way to bring this under control. I am also pretty confident that if those that are so willing to argue 'No Such Thing' would be singing a different tune if they were the ones looking at loss. Funny how the nearer the danger, how ones ideas change. Same/same the foolish remarks made about people in California after I posed the question. How many of the smart fingered group would be laughin and carryin on if they were the ones in flooded cars and buildings or waiting to be rescued. Not so funny then. Gary Haupt

RE: Queen Charlotte trip

First, get used to calling it Haida Gwaii! The name changed a few years back. Then, read through this site. It'll give you a lot of info to ponder... Haida Gwaii Poster called it Haida Gwaii..as did I. Or did I miss something? Gary Haupt

RE: What does 10 TRILLION gallons of water even equate to?

And all I wanted to do was understand what 10 trillion gallons of water would 'look like'. That got answered in the first responses. Then some of you went off the rails with insults and mean posts. Too bad. Gary Haupt

RE: Queen Charlotte trip

It is pretty pricey if you are going over in an RV. The only way to come out in the black is to stay a couple 3 weeks and boondock the whole time. The ferry is out of Prince Rupert on a night sailing for 9 hours. You cannot be on the vehicle deck, so it's either trying to sleep in chairs or taking a stateroom. It's $100.00 well spent. An option would be to take the toad, if you have one, and B&B it for a couple 4 nights. You'd need to park the RV in a paid spot..so..all in all..I'd take the RV. Haida Gwaii is a place of special things. It is very relaxed...very laid back. If you are going to go..be in touch and I can give you places to go and see. There aren't loads of RV resorts..mostly provincial camp grounds. A dump in Queen Charlotte City and one in Massett. Gary Haupt

RE: What does 10 TRILLION gallons of water even equate to?

What does 10 TRILLION gallons of water even equate to? Gary ... I'll go way out on a watersoaked limb here and make a guess to help visualize things: That much water probably could fill somwhere around the coach interior volumes of 5 billion motorhomes like yours. By the way, along with all that water comes nasty winds. Here's what was laying next to our rig when I got up last Thursday morning: Oh man...glad the branch didn't land on the roof. Such a worry for folks in the path of water damage. Between flash floods, dams bursting, rock falls, slides and all of it...hard to feel secure. Gary

RE: What does 10 TRILLION gallons of water even equate to?

10T gal would be 30.7 million acre/feet (google) Oroville dam holds 3.5 million acre/feet Oroville dam Lake Mead (Hoover Dam) capacity is 26 million acre feet Ahh..okay..thanks. That sort of does bring it into a perspective I can grasp. Gary Haupt

That's one weather prediction for southern California in the next week. Gary Haupt

RE: Lab Work in Canada

It won't be the getting it done part..it will be who is paying for the work. Then you need to have the results read. You can fax them to your own doctor but then it will get interesting if they need to adjust your meds. You really do need to contact some of the major labs, and see what they say. Gary Haupt

RE: Tell me about the 101 along the coast of Oregon

I would make two comments...you are starting from the north...how are you getting to that point? And Brookings, Oregon...last of the Oregon outposts before descending into California debauchery. The city owned campground..down by the USCG station offers the best beach side camping. If you are going to do it..reserve a site in the outer..right at road/beach side. It truly is one of THE best campsites. Gary Haupt

RE: Sand

And after all of that...you will still have sand everywhere. You know that constant wind? is loaded with sand particles. I used an Astro Turf mat and that helped. I also bought a 12v vacuum...and that worked okay too. But, ultimately, the only way to stay sane is to shake the rugs once a day, a damp wipe over your hard surfaces..keep your computer lid closed when not in use. If you have a DLSR camera, keep the body and lens bagged. You won't beat it but you can, sort of, manage it. Gary Haupt

RE: Class C for boondocking ?

Speed is your only protection. Don't. It will be a royal pain but the only, and I do mean only, way to avoid damage from the road surface is to just go slow. It'll either be that or reattaching the cupboards when you arrive..and get back home. One thing might be to drop the air pressure in your tires, but then you run the risk of stone punctures. Plus you will need to have a compressor with you. Another thing to be aware of is the dust that will get all over everything. It will get in thru any small opening and by the time you get your 15 miles in? and out, eh....There are ways to mitigate the dust..maybe. Your RV will likely have one or more Fantastic Fans. You can reverse the air flow so rather than sucking out..blowing in, thus creating a positive pressure inside. But really? just plan on devoting a couple hours to doing a thorough clean. Put the bedding and clothing in large plastic bags. As far as A or C? You need to decide which design works for your family. Where do you like to go? Gary Haupt BC

RE: Off to Alaska Soon YES in FEBRUARY

Instead of taking a porta-pottie why couldn't you just use your RV toilet and flush it with RV antifreeze from a jug. Then you tank would not freeze. I'll just toss a guess...a porta potty you can dump most anywhere. Any gas station. The tank on an RV? Nope. And all dump facilities are closed till June. That's a long long time to hold it.

RE: Cost of a motor home; any class

Well, I haven't seen any post about how darn cheap it is. I've spent a bundle on both my C's. Now, granted, my currant lifted 4x4 C is a show piece and I'm going to start charging 5 bux to those who want to take a pic of it. If anyone is reading this..thinking of buying and the money involved? If you are a good money planner...rent it. A trailer, a C a B or a big shiny A...but rent it. Owning is a fools game. Gary Haupt
