RE: Ammeter Suggestions?

I am pretty sure that front bezel is the flange. Nice looking unit.

RE: Oil Change instructions for women and men

Love it, saw something similar a long time ago & forgot about it. Glad to see it again, I needed a good laugh this morning. :)

RE: My turn! Carpet out - Pergo it.

Just helped my son do that in his stick & brick last weekend.

RE: Amazon Reduces Free Shipping Minimums

Here in Louisiana we had to start paying sales tax Jan 1st with Amazon. Our new liberal idiot governor could not stand to miss a few dollars he could spend. I love Amazon service. A week ago UPS swears the delivered 2 pkgs. to my house from Amazon but only one was there. I contacted UPS and was told Amazon had to initiate the claim search, so I contacted Amazon and told them I seriously doubt someone stole it from my back door because they would have taken both and they offered to either give me credit or reship the item & they shipped it overnight & apologized for the inconvenience. I am happy with Amazon, some things are cheaper than other places & some are more. Just like any other store.

RE: Propane level gauge-do I need one in each tank??

I do like itchyfeet, check ocassionally to see if the auto transfer has switched, then refill the empty. A tank last us so long as we only use it for cooking because we usually have electrical hookup.

RE: Roadside Assistance from State Farm vs. AAA RV

Only advantage I can see to having the 2, if one isn't too good in the area you are in, maybe the other is better.

RE: Knee replacement surgery

Had mine about 6 years ago, very worth it. I guess it was about a month or two, I really don't remember. PT is the only fun part. :)

RE: Using a Scan Gauge

Afraid I can't help you except to say not all vehicles have that info available at the OBD II port, and that I use a scan Guage on my F250 specifically for tranny temp & love it.

RE: lock for the waste water valves.

A trail camera would work.

RE: lock for the waste water valves.

Never saw one, but I believe one could be fab up without too much trouble.

RE: Do Extended Cabs Come in Long Bed?? Looking for 5er Truck

Answer to your question is yes, not real common but available. My son has a F350 long bed. 8' instead of the 6.5' like mine.

RE: Plastic under TT

Gorilla tape is a lot better than duct tape.

RE: Progressive Industries EMS display brightness - annoying?

Mine is mounted in the compartment with the TV, but at a 90° angle to the screen and view able from the outside doorway. I don't even notice it unless I am wanting to see it. :)

RE: Can Dexter EZ-Lube axles be serviced as regular axles?

I treat mine like regular axles, never have used a grease gun. :)

RE: surge protectors

Progressive Industries is the only way to go. Buy one and be finished. Buy a little cheaper then buy again, is false economy. Don't ask me how I know.

RE: UPS/USPS collaberation

Fed-X, UPS handing off to USPS is the worst thing they could have done. USPS messes up almost everything they touch. I order a lot of small items and cringe when I see it has been handed off to USPS and at least 50% of the time there is a snag with USPS. They can't seem to get anything right. They are a dinosaur that has outlived their usefulness and should be given a decent burial. :)

RE: Best wheel bearing grease

That is what I used when I repacked my wheel bearings a couple of months ago.

RE: A question for you electricians

#6 or larger I like split bolt connectors wrapped with rubber tape then wrapped with vinyl tape. Sometimes I'll even use this on #8.

RE: Tire pressure on the road

That is perfectly normal, that is why the manufacturers say to set your tire pressure cold (ambient temp) because they will heat up when rolling. The same is true on your tow vehicle also or any vehicle (even a car), we are just not aware of it without a TPMS telling us this. I live in S Louisiana & have pretty much the same temps you do and have not had a problem in 10 years of towing, but like you I still worry about it even thou deep down I know it is OK. :)

RE: Satellite direct tv signal from LNB

Don't see why not, just use a good quality high frequency, lo loss switch.
