RE: EGR Deletes

Probably varies by state, but in Texas it is illegal to sell or offer for sale any vehicle which the emissions system has been modified. Meaning you can’t legally sell or trade any such vehicle. Dealers will likely not take it if you ever decide to trade. And, if found out, you could be fined for selling to an individual. The DEF system stops the emissions of nitrous oxides into the air we breath. And the diesel particulate filter system stops the emissions of unburned fuel, carbon particles, and other combustion byproducts into that same air.

RE: Branson

Been a number of years, but we also liked the Branson KOA and would stay there again. They have sites ranging from small back-ins to long pull thrus. And premium pull thrus with patios. About a half mile from the main show strip.

RE: Reverse Polarity code When Plugging in at Home

RE: Reverse Polarity code When Plugging in at Home

Call an electrician and have them check the wiring. This can be done before calling an electrician. Go to a big box hardware store and buy a no-contact voltage tester. They are not expensive. That will tell you exactly which slot on your 30 amp outlet is hot. You can then tell if the outlet is wired backwards. With the round slot at the top, the hot slot should be lower left. https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/51bXDYpGoYL._AC_SL1000_.jpg width=160 This is the best answer. And that tester is handy to have around any way. Here is how it should be wired. http://www.myrv.us/electric/

RE: Flashing rope light

Certainly better than a spinning glass disco ball with very bright colored spot lights throwing sparkles thru the trees in every camp site around. Yeah, saw that at a state park in Arkansas. :S

RE: Near tragic event!!

Without using a torque wrench there are two possibilities. You over tightened them to the point of weakening the studs. And the strain eventually caused one or more to fail taking the rest with them. Or you did not tighten them properly, they worked loose, and the pounding of the loose wheel cause one or more to fail and take the rest with them. Many people think if tight is good, then tighter is better, and stand on it is the best. Using a cheater bar is the ultimate. Not so. And inversely, not tight enough is not good either.

RE: Peak Blue Platinum DEF

No more DEF than I use in a year's time the small amount of money for the new and improved "Platinum" DEF is nothing and I will begin using it until proven otherwise. I'd say you have that backwards, I'll begin using when they prove that it works not the other way around............. Nope, I have it forward. I would rather use it and later find there is no benefit than to not use it and find the continued deposits required costly repairs to the emissions system. To each his own.

RE: Peak Blue Platinum DEF

If you take time to read thru the links I posted above, you will see that deposits from DEF into the SCR system is a long known problem. If the liquid atomized particles hit a hot surface and dry before they evaporate they will form deposits. And over time the build up of those deposits lead to problems of possible back pressure. And that would lead to reduced fuel economy. Those of you with chemical backgrounds may understand the whole process from reading the articles. From the links above there are multiple mechanical attempts being tested to reduce those deposits. Obviously the new Peak DEF doesn't do anything to the mechanical aspects of the system. But somehow manipulating the chemical aspects of the DEF might increase the evaporation rate and reduce the deposits. Obviously a better DEF would be cheaper solution than a mechanical modification to the system. No more DEF than I use in a year's time the small amount of money for the new and improved "Platinum" DEF is nothing and I will begin using it until proven otherwise.

RE: Peak Blue Platinum DEF

It sounds good. I'm interested in learning what the cost will be and it would be nice if the shelf life was greater than the 18 months regular Blue DEF provides. Shelf life? Fill at the truck stop $2.99 a gallon and always fresh, refill as needed. That you get at the pump is never completely fresh. They just pour the new into the tank on top of the old and it all gets diluted. The old just keeps getting more diluted each time but never completely goes away. So you end up with multiple ages of DEF all mixed together. Better or worse than the jug? Who can say?

RE: Foam Mattress Topper

We also put a 2" foam mattress topper on ours. And a mattress cover over that holds it in place with no problem. And made our OEM mattress much more comfortable. As far as repositioned or adjusted I suppose it might depend on how much you use it. A full timer or long timer might need to rotate or flip it periodically. But we have used ours as long as 3 weeks at a time and never changed any thing about it.

RE: Bad capacitors in my rear TV!!

As thin and narrow framed and cheap as TVs are now, I think I would just replace that 13 or 14 year old TV with a new one unless you just consider it a challenge to see if you can repair it.

RE: Border closure extended

Looks like it has been extended to Oct 21 but “sources” say it will be extended to Nov.

RE: Why do I need a DC to DC charger?

Curiosity leads to google. And there I found this; A DC-DC charger is effectively a smart-charger for your 12V system. It isolates the house battery system from the alternator, so that the vehicle's computer management system sees it as something like a set of lights.

RE: 5G cell phones, need to purchase?

Agree with above. 4G range is measured in miles. 5G range is measured in feet. The costs of installing 5G cell towers to get good coverage is going to limit it to cities for the time being. Go out of town and it will be 4G, probably for a long while.

RE: Bed rail clearance

I would change nothing. Mine is right about 6" and never has come close, even over some pretty uneven surfaces.

RE: Shearing the sheep

Prices are driven by demand. And demand is very high right now.

RE: Border closings

With the way so many people of the US seem determined to ignore the covid recommendations and warnings, no surprise they do not want us crossing the border. I wouldn't either.
