RE: Humidistat ?

It should not be a hard thing to do. Go to a heating a/c company and buy or get them to install a humidistat in line with the thermostat that controls the A/C unit. I have a humidastat in my Florida park model while I'm back north in the summer time. It's cheap to operate, only about 4 kwh a month on the electric bill. ryoung

RE: DO NOT USE MILLENICOM!!

Millenicom is to Verizon as Consumer Cellular is to AT&T. Both sell their excess capacity and slower bandwidth to the smaller companies. Obviously you're not going to get the quality of service from the cheaper service providers. ryoung

RE: How much air in the tires? Need advice... First "real haul"

If you need an engineer to explain tire pressures, just read the door placard on your vehicle. The placard on my dually says to inflate tires to 65 psi at maximum rated load which if I recall is a little over 9000 lbs. I would assume that an engineer came up with this number. So why should I disbelieve him and run 80 psi? ryoung

RE: Roadside Assistance Urgent Statement

You will not believe what I'm about to post. Please read my two other posts above first. This afternoon I go a "courtesy" call from Good Sam informing me that my ERS was about to expire and I could pay now on the phone, blah, blah, and more blah. Finally when I was able to speak, I guess I yelled, I told him that my account should show that I was to receive a refund since I cancelled my membership on May 13th. Yes indeed, after calling up my account, it showed that I had dumped Good Sam ERS. If these callers have access to billing info, why in the hell do they waste their time and mine? Yeah, I know; it's all about marketing> ryoung

RE: Bad day?

I know there is a lot of good info on this web site, but if all they want to do is complain, then why come here and try to bring everyone else day down? First of all, you are also "complaining" by posting. Second, if it "brings your day down", don't read it. Hells fire, find something else to do if it has that much effect on you. ryoung

RE: Roadside Assistance Urgent Statement

I called Good Sam ERS yesterday and asked that my payment for next years service be returned. No problem. When ask why I was cancelling, I told the rep (not Marcus) that I was tired of receiving "urgent" notices when my membership was paid up. He said there was a computer glitch that sent every member this "urgent" message and it would take time to get it corrected. I then asked him why the computer glitch wasn't fixed last year when it did the same thing. End of conversation: and the refund is in the mail. Thank you Good Sam ERS for refunding my payment. ryoung

RE: Roadside Assistance Urgent Statement

I also got my urgent notice in the mail today informing me that my ERS membership expires this month. This is 23 days after sending my payment on April 19th. The check was deposited by GS ERS 4 days later. What is wrong here? Is their accounting that poorly managed that they cannot reconcile their accounts payable in a timely manner? I would hope not. Perhaps it's something else. The letter was signed by Marcus Lemonis the Chief Executive Officer. Ah, that's the problem! The CEO has to micro mange his company. Just imagine how many thousands of accounts this man must look after and send out renewal notices. Why doesn't Joe Smoe, the manager of accounts, sign the letter?? It would be more authentic if that's what their trying to project. All joking aside, this practice of sending these "urgent" notices is a very poor business practice, regardless of the benefit the company may gain from it. It's a waste of my time as I had to spend the time checking my records to see if I had mailed the check. Why should a customer have to be put through this BS? You should be sending me a thank you notice for my payment and thanking me for continuing to subscribe to your service. But no, you send me trash! What if I didn't see through the smoke and mirrors? I would certainly come to the conclusion, that if GS ERS can't manage their accounts, they certainly couldn't provide reliable road service. The final word is this. I am done with doing business with GS ERS. So Marcus since you are running the company, would it be too much to ask of you to cancel my service when it expires on May 28, 2014 and promptly refund my money that I paid for next years service. BTW the check number was #1313(no joke). ryoung

RE: Have you ever pulled into a weigh station?

When I purchased the 3500 Duramax last year I was concerned about traveling on I35E through St. Paul. This stretch is posted NO trucks over 9000lb GVW. I don't recall exactly, but believe my truck is rated at 11,500lb. GVW and GVWR are not the same. If your truck is empty, I doubt that it weighs over 9,000 lbs regardless of its GVWR rating of 11,500lbs.

RE: Tires?

I would first try to determine the cause of the blowout and also determine the weight you are carrying before considering what type of tire to buy. Was it due to incorrect inflation pressure, exceeding weight capacity, wear, manufacturing defect, etc. ryoung

RE: Tire Pressures for Dually and Heavy T/C

Are the replacement tires the same size and load range as the OEM tires? If not the door sticker info will not apply. Stickdog, do you have "E" or "G" load range? I would weight the axles with the maximum load that you carry and use the Michelin inflation tables HERE. ryoung

RE: Tire Pressure

I don't believe load inflation tables can be called nonsense as one poster suggests. (I don't quote posters here anymore as it tends to pi$$ some of them off and they get nasty in their replies). The best wear and safety performance from a tire can be had by using load inflation tables. Why do the major tire manufacturers publish inflation tables for their tires as exampled in the following links: Michelin Yokahama Goodyear ryoung

RE: Stirring up a hornet's nest?

Another absolutely not. Our Alaska trip in 2007 with another couple and their TC was the joy of a lifetime. I bought the TC just for the trip as I did not want to pull the fiver there and back. Over 11,000 miles with no time schedule, took nearly 3 months. Near the end of the trip, we put the TC on the Alaska Marine Ferry ship Columbia in Skagway and got off in Bellingham, WA 5 days later. Took nearly 4,000 digital photos and still enjoy looking at them now and then. The memory is what makes the trip. Not really wanting to return as there is still much of the lower 48 that I want to see....in the TC that I bought for Alaska. ryoung

RE: Verizon Jet Pack Data Usage

Did anyone read this post or are you just shooting from the hip because it has not affected you, yet .... believe me, if you are using a jetpack and a Verizon customer, your day is coming, as thousands of others have found out. Since you are able to make this prediction, certainly you must know the cause, so please tell us. Oh well, guess it's just something else to look forward to, like the Maya prorhecy of the end of the world that didn't happen last December. ryoung

RE: Verizon Jet Pack Data Usage

The OP states "because it uses about 1gb per half hour", I doubt very much the problem lies with Verizon. That is a phenomenal rate of data just for surfing and emails. If Verizon was going to overrate your usage,as some have claimed, they would certainly be smart enough to do it in smaller increments and not to the point that your monthly amount is consumed in a matter of hours. How dumb to think otherwise. Have you contacted Verizon about the problem? I have a Jetpack 4260L on Verizon 4G LTE network and only use around 3.5GB in 30 days of surfing and emails. ryoung

RE: Email Addresses

I am using a computer.... If I go to mail and hit any letter then the email addresses associated with that letter appeat to include some incorrect ones. That is what I am trying to delete. Not from address book. The email addresses you see when you type a letter are from your address book. As mentioned earlier, left click on the To: and your address book should open with edit and delete options. ryoung
