RE: Tank Monitor and Battery Level Panel Not Working

Make sure the battery is not connected backwards.

RE: 3rd Brake Light

I often think about adding one to our 5er. Might say I am rear ended conscious as I have been rear ended several times, fortunately never with a trailer in tow. :)

RE: Tekonsha P3 - What say all of you?

RE: second spare?

I do now, last year had a blow out on a tandem axle trailer, when the rear tire blew the shrapnel took out the valve stem on the tire in front of it and I was there on the road side with 2 tires down. :)

RE: Spraying Seafoam directly into Honda 2000 Carb.

Yes, what I did with a leaf blower was to spray Seafoem into the carb with the engine running wide open till it flooded out and died. Then let it sit about 15 or 20 minutes and restart and it smoked like crazy but smoothed out and ran great afterwards. :)

RE: Ewww! The caulk is black!

Don't know what caused it but some mineral spirits and a clean rag take it off easily. I just finished cleaning mine. :)

RE: TRC 34730 BUZZING surge guard

How did you get the case open? Did you have to cut it open?

RE: Is this surge guard OK?

Get a Progressive Industries Power monitor (EMS-PT50 or EMS-HW50C), it will do more, a far superior product, life time warranty, fantastic customer service. You will not regret it versus the other brand.

RE: Rust after trip to Galveston

I would never camp near the Gulf.

RE: are you towing with a short bed crew cab?

For the past 7 1/2 years I have been pulling with a 6 1/2' bed F250 & no slider and no problems. It all depends on your 5er, from what you mentioned I would say you should not have any problems. :)

RE: Axle Self Alignment

With that many miles if there was a problem it would show up as excessive tire wear. Leave well enough alone. :)

RE: Harbor Freight Freebie DMM

I use the HF in the RV to check for the presence of voltage or continuity and as a loaner. I will not loan my Fluke. I was in electronic servicing for 50 years, as mentioned when a tech was a tech and not a board changer. :)

RE: Aerospace 303 or NuFinish or Both?

I use 303 on the decals and auto wax on everything else. :)

RE: Question about tire pressure monitors

No leak as long as it is working properly. I have the TST-507 and like it. If you would have a leak it would show up on the monitor. So no worries. :)

RE: Transmission Gauge for Ford E-Series

Scan guage! :)

RE: tire pressure

IMHO on a trailer, yes, yes, yes.

RE: LED Voltage & Current Control Module - Tough To Beat

I would think a pulse width modulator would work well. I put one on the kitchen exhaust fan because it was too noisy and we love it.:)

RE: Outside Lights - camping tips

I love rope lights, just lay them on the ground around the rig, easy set up and pick up. Lately been using a bucket light with football logos on it, even easier set up. Guess I am getting lazy as I age. :)

RE: Handy Hints, Gadgets, Products & Gizmos

Good. idea & Good point! I know the list of pics to take with your phone is endless, but just had this experience at the RV dealership: Went for annual inspection and as they were getting the vehicle information off the sticker on the side of the RV I noticed it was getting so faded from the sun that it might not be readable in the near future. So I snapped a picture of it and made sure it got loaded into my dropbox storage so I can access it at any point in the future from the different devices I use even if I don't keep my current phone. As for security, I have apps to lock my phone, track my phone and remotely wipe my phone and that's about as protected as I think I can get right now. You can never be 100% unhackable but at some point I figure I just need to live in the digital age and not stress about it too much anymore. ~Karin Posted: 04/24/15 05:26pm Link | Quote | Print | Notify Moderator Phone Camera Uses; I probably missed this but here are a couple tips. Use your phone to take pictures of your VIN, your license plate, your driver's license and any medications you have. Really the list is endless.

RE: No grease for slide gears...

I like dry silicone spray as it does not attract dirt. :)
