RE: Camp light from Aliexpress - don't!

Do you have any cordless power tools - what ever brand name? I run Dewalt, so I already have a fleet of batteries and chargers. I bought the flashlight, tool only for 30 bucks. Bought 3 of them actually, 1 for the RV. Works great. Perhaps you could do the same if you have cordless stuff already.

RE: Cheap Win 10 laptop

And to think I just shelled out 1300 bucks for a 14.6 inch tablet. And another 150 for something to cover it with....

RE: OBD Port F53

I have now taken to putting a stand up directable flashlight on the floor and using a mirror to find stuff. Last time I got under the dash I nearly had to be surgically removed.... Love the Advil idea! :B

RE: ALWAYS something!

Yes, always something.... I attended a wedding in BC over the Labor Day weekend. Hadn't had the TT out yet this year. Brought it home, dewinterized, usual stuff. Filled the fresh water tank, ran the pump to fill the HWT and flush the lines..... The pump runs on and on and wont shut off. It worked enough to do the task at hand, but rather weakly. Hmmmm. Long story short after investigation, pump is sucking air from the tank side. It still pulls water, but the cold taps sputter and spit, the hot doesnt. I can pull the feed pipe up and down where it goes through the floor into the tank. That shouldn't be happening. Looks like I have to drop the tank to figure out what came apart... At least I had full hookups for the 4 nights out, didn't need the tank water. Sighhhh.... Always something. :R

RE: Looking for slide out insulation, 1 1/2"

Consider rigid insulation such as SM or similar. It is available in various thicknesses including 1 1/2". Cut to fit the voids, and for any gaps or going around wiring etc, use a bit of expandable spray foam. Super light weight and it has an R value of R5 per inch, so R7.5 for your application. That's double what you'll get from regular batt insulation.

RE: Ford V10 Running hot

Don't overlook something as simple as plugged cooling fins on your rad. There is usually 2 or 3 things out front, the rad being the innermost. Your A/C condenser will be in front of the rad, and then a tranny oil cooler if you have one. Are you cleaning a lot of bugs off your windshield over the past couple years? If so, those same bugs could be plugging things up through the grille, restricting air flow. Take a peek through the front to see if there is a lot of schmoo in there.

RE: Hazel Henderson -- 1945/2022

From a Canadian friend in the west: I'm truly sorry to learn of your loss, but express joy at your new little blessing. Theres never the right words at a time like this, sorrow is a difficult thing. Hazel is in a better place now, watching over you until one day years from now when He takes you home to join her. I pray for peace and blessings for you as you move through this difficult and challenging chapter of life. Again, truly sorry for your loss. Take care.

RE: How safe is etransfer - selling big items?

In the case of something not very expensive, like an engine, I'm not sure why he couldn't pay the balance in loonies. I mean, what is it, a couple grand, tops? But good luck getting a real world review of online funds transfers from a group of senior citizens.... Couple grand doesnt even cover the deposit to hold the engine, lol!:B Extremely rare engine, near impossible to find, and all totally rebuilt by a pro rodder. Never run. It's worth a gob of change! It was introduced in 1958, with triple carbs as an option, which mine has. It was superceded in 1961 by the 409 engine.

RE: How safe is etransfer - selling big items?

Thanks for the input everyone. I've never had an issue with etransfer, and I use it all the time. Fast and easy. I'm not sure when he is going to be able to make the trip to pick the engine up. Its several hundred miles from here. The arranged plan was to do the second half payment when he gets here. From his point of view etransfer gives him a record of the payment too.

RE: How safe is etransfer - selling big items?

As mentioned, I already have a sizeable deposit by etransfer

RE: How safe is etransfer - selling big items?

Have him send the money to me and I will forward it to my banker in Nigeria and then I will send you a certified check and an offer to extend the warranty on your auto , all at no charge to you ! P.S , how is your supplemental insurance ? That's awesome, thank you!! I'll get right on it! :B

How safe is etransfer - selling big items?

With all the scams, swindlers etc out there, just thought I'd throw this out for anyone who may know more than I do: For over 20 years I have had a totally rebuilt 348 Tri-Power for a 58 Impala. I always wanted to find a 58 Chev convertible for it, but never did. I just sold the engine on Kijiji yesterday. The buyer lives in the next province from me, so I have not met him. Everything was done by email. He sent me a sizable deposit by etransfer to hold it until he can drive out and pick the engine up, at which time he will etransfer the balance. Ok, sounds good. The question I am pondering is: How safe is etransfer? Funds are in my account. Can these be scammed? Can it be reversed somehow? I am leery of any transaction with a stranger for large amounts of money. Everything seems fine, but I believe in being very careful with Kijiji transactions. Anyone have real life experience with this? (Not looking for wild guesses - I can do those myself) Thanks.

RE: Unbraked trailer, towing limitations

I'm sure that many of us here can attest to this: If you have ever had to do a sudden panic stop, avoid an animal, vehicle incident or whatever, you will appreciate having trailer brakes. In normal driving conditions, keeping a safe distance etc you can likely make out ok. But what about if a child chasing a ball suddenly shows up in front of you and there's nowhere to swerve? I've had that happen. Years ago when I lived in BC, I thought anything over 1500 pounds required brakes. I might be wrong, but I think it's a good rule. About 15 years ago in Langley BC, on the bypass I saw a small car towing a TT. Traffic suddenly bunched up and he plowed into the car in front of him, unable to stop. Highly unlikely the tow car had a brake controller.

RE: Replacing a Furrion AM/FM Radio

Gee what a hassle... :R Gotta wonder why they do this stuff.... I guess I'm lucky with my 07, it was pretty painless to update the factory stereo. Actually, one of the reasons I did it is because half the bulbs in the factory unit were out. I went do the stealership to see about replacing a few 50 cent bulbs. Nope! No can do. Have to but a whole new stereo to get the bulbs working. In my mind I had a 2 word 7 letter phrase as I politely said no thank you. I could have ripped it open and soldered some bulbs in there, but, nah, why bother. I wanted BT, phone hands free, USB in and more. No brainer.
