RE: OTR Indoor Antenna

$39 for antennae & rotor. $25 for 2 10ft chain link line rail. Bag of cement. 22 channels but don't watch any of them. Went with Hulu live for less than half of DTV. Try it for 7 days free.

RE: Duramax won't prime.

Thanks for all the replies and thoughts. I gave up working on vehicles years ago but did drop fender well to tighten fuel filter. Moved very little and with a mirror to see back of filter, the o ring did not seem to be protruding. Was towed to shop where owner says probably will be end of week to get to it. Said as the trucks get on in years that they can develop pinprick holes which of course destroys vacuum. Possibility of installing electric pump. Will find out by end of week. Thanks again.

RE: Pick up tool Box extra fuel tank

I have a 40 gallon transfer flow with tool box and a Sidewinder pinbox. Cost is long forgotten and enjoyment still continues. Replacement tanks with installation can be quite expensive.

RE: Duramax won't prime.

You could check by releasing the bleeder screw and pumping like you're priming a new filter - if fuel squirts out right away you know you have fuel that far Yes, that what I mean won't prime, cannot get fuel to squirt out. Ran fine when I shut it off a week ago.

Duramax won't prime.

2008 Duramax Went to start truck, took a second or two longer than usual and only ran for a couple of seconds. Will not prime. Fuel filter changed about 2 months ago but only about 100 miles since then. Coincidence?

RE: Interesting way to tow a 5er

Looks like no squat on tires or suspension. Wonder why the don't show the landing gear that's down? :)

RE: In bed diesel tanks

40gal/toolbox from TransferFlo. Pricey but money is soon forgotten after 1 trip. Stopping when and where you want makes traveling much more fun, especially when travelling with dogs.

RE: School me on waste totes

I took the wheels off of a 30 gallon Barker and used a Flojet to pump up to the bed. Hate the Blue thunder.

RE: fifth wheel backing trouble

You can see it on Google Maps (satellite view). Just look for 1249 Dewing Ln, Walnut Creek, CA and zoom in. WOW!!!! I would never get that in there. BIG HUEY might be what you need!

RE: Lightest slider hitch?

RE: Service Trailer Brake System message

When I got that message on my 2008, it got replaced under warranty.

RE: Plugged in or Trickle Charger

Sounds like a 30 amp outlet would be fine, then. However, I only have a 20 amp outlet currently available, and have to use two cords to reach it. Based on Beaker's post, that might not be a great idea? Was parked at house, sleeping in house, thought I smelled electrical fire but didn't see anything. A couple of days later, was around the back side of trailer where it was plugged into extension cord with adapter and saw a black mark up the trailer where it was plugged in. Adapter was melted. Was washing the present trailer and got a tingle when washing the bumper. Measured voltage bumper to ground(wet concrete) and got 10 volts. Replaced adapter and voltage disappeared. Maybe cheap adapters, maybe not, maybe the cord. No longer is it plugged into house except when in use. I do put a battery charger on it now and then.

RE: Plugged in or Trickle Charger

Be careful if leaving it plugged in and using 30 to 20 amp adapter. A couple of bad experiences will not have me doing it anymore.

RE: Problems with past RV Parks you've stayed at?

Other campers are there.

RE: Soft spots in floors

I have a '17 Laredo that has developed a soft spot in the floor and having just had the roof inspected by a dealer they say there are no leaks they can find. I trust this dealer, they are small town and family owned and very customer oriented. It's the ones that they CAN"T find that's the problem.

RE: 110 outlets

Had a strange electrical problem one time and it was GFI even though tested good.

RE: New Camper problems

You have a bad battery I think so too. Went thru this last fall. It makes you think it's something else but when you jump the battery everything works.

RE: Brand New Vizio 40 inch TV problem, HELP

You're there not me but it seems strange to me that you would have an SD only receiver If you do need a different one they should send you one without charging you.

RE: Brand New Vizio 40 inch TV problem, HELP

Vote for TV input. Never had to scan tv for channels with DirecTV. Had trouble once by using SWM which I didn't need.

RE: fuel tank/toolbox combo

I have had the Transfer Flow 40 gallon combo with autofill for over 10 years. Pricey but I would do again without thinking. Totally a different world not thinking about finding a gas station every 200 miles!
