RE: Placing a travel trailer on our recreational property?

I will post only this. Laws, ordiances Zoning rules and such vary from place to place even within a single city or township you may have differences. So you MUST find out if it is legal where you wish to park it. Alas, I can not answer that.. Some places have some Strange... Rules

RE: Onan Marquis 5000 how clean?

How clean? VERY, not as good as a true sine inverter, but likely cleaner than shore power.. I've never had an issue with my 5500 NOTE: If it has not been exercised in a while (Should run 1/2 hour every month under 1/2 or load. or more in both 1/2s) you might want to run it an hour or two with non-electronic loads as cleaning up the power is ONE of the things regular exercise accomplishes

RE: Weigh Station Protocol

Some weight stations leave the scales on even when the station is closed. if this is the case No charge.. HOWEVER at best you can only do axle weights by driving SLOWLY over the scale and noting the first weight (When front axle mounts the scale (Total (Gboth axles) and last Rear only. YOu really neeed to know the "Wheel weights" and on most Weith stations you can not do that To do that you neeed a rlat5 scale. or segmented is nice. park so the full axle is on one setment (Each axle a difrerent setment. Get total axle and vehicle weights Re-park so only one side is on the scale (Get weight on that side) Do the math for the other side. YES. usually that type or scale costs. Optional www.rvsafety.com (I think its comn) has a link to a serfice that ror a reasonable ree will call you and interfiew (What tires do you hafe. have that info handy) and come out and do all the work safe for driving the RV for you.

RE: TV surge protector

I woudl have to agree with the improper ground theory. The only other way current could flow in enough quanity to melt the connectors would be if the wall plate (THe "TV BOOSTER" is what most folks improperly call that) were wired backwards and neither the curcit in the wall plate not the fuse feeding it is anywhere near that big. Fuse would blow first.. Have blown a few of 'em.

RE: Honda's new EU2200i model...

For many years my complaint against Honda (Well the biggest one) has been that I need a 1,000 watt generator, not a 1,000 PEAK. if they come out with an 1100. that might work for me.. (Just enough to power my converter).

RE: "Net Neutraility" Is Yes Or Is No Significant ?

What is going to happen: Currently the Internet is one giant system. All traffic is processed at priority 2 save for some very select stuff which is P-1 (IE: Pacemaker to hospital) all are processed at one rate Soon, when/if the new rule goes into effect (it can still be stopped) there will be additional priority codes. So depending on how much you pay for E-mail, For Video files, for _____ you may only be able to do a very small amount of it as WWW becomes World Wide Wait. It also means that ISP's may even refuse selected traffic.

RE: Doc to PDF

What operating system are you using? Windows 10 has a priter. So does Chrome "Save as pdf" this is different from the DOC->PDF converter. No guarantees. I've had that same problem with other files. One diference between the Doc-2-PDF and the printers drivers is that they (the printer drivers in both Chrome and 10) work with almost ANY type of document. even web pages.

RE: California Considers Placing A Mileage Tax On Drivers

An observation.. California has been considering a 'Millage Tax" for many years now.. Finally technology is getting to the point where it may be practical. That is all I can say on it, For frankly that's as far as I have researched.

RE: Another tire question

Sounds normal the tires should be replaced, when depends on who you ask, My advice is 2 years from now.. If those are 22.5 nobody makes a same size but there is at lest one that is close..begains with "T" (Toyo troyo????) I'd stick with what you have though with FMCA discount

RE: Antenna aiming

Conditions change, Solar activity is kind of strange this year and can mess up TV signals something fierce. as can other things. Also coax that was good 2 years ago. may no longer be good My first suggestion is check all connetions My second is more height. for Height is might.

RE: oven use in travel trailer

First the setting knob may be off, mine is 50 Degrees. so you need a thermometer to measure the oven temp with Second a pizza stone, or a unglazed ceramic tile (set it on the bottom, on the metal tray that is just above the burner) this will tend to even out the heat. I do this. don't do pizza but do do cookies, Takes me a batch or two to get time right but .. Well when I take 'em to a pot luck they are Vacuum cleaner food (When it's time to go home the plate looks like someone went by with a high power Shop Vac and sucked 'em all up).

RE: Battery or converter Problem?

Are they MARINE/deep cycle or Golf Car (GC-2) DEEP CYCLE The latter may recover from a few "OH C**P! deep discharges The former.. Not so much IF THEY ARE TOAST consider a pair of GC-2 in series For just that reason.
