RE: Where did you get your Electrical knowledge?

2-year Associated degree eons ago (ours was the last class for vacuum tubes.) Worked p/t with an electrician for a while on residential wiring. ASE certification in automotive electrical systems.

RE: Kevin Harvick wins Sprint Cup championship !

A while back DW & I were watching an interview with JJ. The host asked Jimmie "What do you attribute your success to?" DW & I both replied at the same time: "Chad!"

RE: Gummed Up Honda EU 2000 Gen

I siphon the gas out of the tank and then run it until the carb is dry. For insurance I also open the carb drain. And all my small engines get non-ethanol gas.

RE: RV Hookups near Hospitals

Eons ago mom & dad were RV-ing in Texas when dad had a heart attack. The ambulance took him to Midland IIRR. Mom drove their rig and was surprised to find the hospital had an RV lot with security and cameras. They told her that many people came from so far away they bring their rigs to the hospital if a loved one is there.

RE: Converter breaker labelling

I had a compatible breaker and spare slot, so I put the converter on its own breaker.

RE: Kevin Harvick wins Sprint Cup championship !

Did anyone else find it odd that Jeff Gordon pitted when he was in 2nd place? Did NASCAR have him come in to create more drama with the drivers in the Chase? How would it look if Gordon won and Harvick finished second?

RE: Advice on TT for my Truck

No, our AC and heat are not ducted. But since we do a fair amount of dry camping we don't use the AC much. We had a hybrid TT for 8 years but DW's knees wouldn't let her climb into the bunk end anymore, so we moved to a full TT. It was a toss between the 21 and 22FBS, the 22 having a couch.

RE: Advice on TT for my Truck

See my sig. The TT is 26-1/2' ball to bumper. Most of the time it's my wife and I, no pets, a canoe on a rack in the truck, and maybe the Honda 2000i generator. Actual dry weight on the TT is 4800#. I haven't weighed this setup wet yet but the EB handles it just fine. I'm using a Reese DC for WD / sway control. The EB is not a max tow and is running "P" tires.

RE: Proper portable generator to run a Jayco X17Z?

I have a Honda 2000i for the TT but I've used it to power the house during power outages. It'll run the fridge, furnace, sump pump, tv, and a few lights. Our stove is gas so that's not an issue. Of course it won't run the A/C if it's summertime.

RE: Dodged a bullet

After I had bypass surgery my cardiologist runs an annual ultrasound carotid artery check to look for blockage. So far - so good.

RE: Towing our chosen TT

My 2012 EB had the condensation sputter a few times but I've not experienced it since the dealer did the latest air deflector fix and re-flashed the computer. I'm real happy with the EB so far. Granted, we have a small trailer but it's nice being able to use the uphill passing lanes and go by slower vehicles. Power, stability, and fuel capacity are way better than the Envoy it replaced.

RE: Ford 150 V6 3.5L EcoBoost

Has Ford yet come up with a final fix for the Ecoboost limp mode condensation problem? Now 4 years running.... After being in the shop twice mine's been OK since the last fix.

RE: Windshield washer fluid in low temps?

The best i have found is Prestone deicer. I use it in winter and Prestone bug formula in the summer. The other benefit is it doesnt dry up and plug the spray nozzles like the blue stuff does. +1. I already drained the bug stuff and refilled the washer reservoirs with Prestone deicer. It'll even remove minor windshield ice on a frosty morning.

RE: Dale Jr wins Martinsville and gets his first clock !

So as I understand it..... A driver could be winless all season, including Homestead, and still win the Cup. Or a driver could win every race except Homestead, and still not take home the Cup. ??????????

RE: Simple Question...I think

Here's what's on the Heartland website: "Note: Overall Length defined as tow point (Ball coupler for travel trailers / King pin for 5th wheel trailers) to rear bumper. It does not include the rear ladder. Add 9" w/ Extended Pin Box" Other manufacturers may quote their lengths differently.

RE: Replacing a 55 amp converter with a 45?

If you have a single battery and don't dry camp then the 45A will be OK. But if you have dual batteries and use a generator to keep the batteries charged I'd go 55A or better. I have a 55A deck-mount Iota mounted converter mounted to the ceiling of the pass-through. Better than the WFCO for charging off a generator and it's a 3' run to the batteries.

RE: How difficult is it to get a title?

Maybe check with your state DMV to see if it needs a title or if a replacement title can be had.

RE: Annuities, cashback cards & stuff

Rewards cards don't do anything for me. The main card is a Capital One Quicksilver card, 1-1/2% cash back on everything. AMEX Blue gave me a $250 cash back bonus for using their card to charge $1000 in 3 months (easy for me.) It's used for gas & groceries. Amazon gave me $30 off my last order for signing up for their card. The trick is to pay them off every month.

RE: Boondocking and Water?

The local Flying J has a RV dump station and also flush and fresh water faucets.

RE: New to the site

Mostly it's DW (D--- Wife) and myself camping now. When we had our hybrid DW bought 2 plastic 3-drawer shelves and set them on the back bunk. Perhaps you can do that with an unused bunk?
