RE: Tire Balance

Balancing is good. They will also tell you no need to rotate, but I do that too. If you search the forum, you'll find out why it's a good idea.

RE: I must have violated one of the rules

A few days ago I posted what I thought was informative information on the 1918 pandemic and referred the reader to an excellent book on the subject and listed the name of the book and the author. It didn't make it to the Forum so listing the book must have been a no no. But I will summarize and point out that the author stated that in the past 100 years we have not been able to develop an effective vaccine against the `old' flu (actually four different strains) so what are the chances of developing one for Covid-19 by the end of the year? We can always hope for a miracle. Depends on the author's definition of "effective". If defined as a flu vaccine that stops you from getting the current year's strain most of the years, then yes, we have effective flu vaccines. I have had the shot every year without fail for over 50 years and have not gotten the flu once. I don't believe this would be true if the flu vaccines were ineffective. If defined as a one and done vaccine that is good for life like polio, small pox, etc., then no, we do not have an effective vaccine; however, I think what we have is good enough.

RE: ohio state parks

As a test, I picked electric sites in Loop B during early August and there were dates available. Maybe it's just the dates you picked.

RE: What should getting wheel bearings packed cost?

When was the last time you had the wheel bearings on your tow vehicle repacked? Who are you asking?

RE: What should getting wheel bearings packed cost?

Just got it done at Les Schwab. Cost $170 per axle plus tax. This included new bearing seals which typically are replaced when bearings are packed. They also inspected/adjusted the brakes and greased the suspension wet bolts for free. It used to cost about $100 per axle plus tax, but a couple of years ago they discovered they were charging way below the competition (which I verified) and raised their rates a bunch. I don't like the price increase, but they seem to do a good job.

RE: vented box for Honda 2200 generator

Sometimes not hard enough! Like when I soaked a red ant nest with gas, bent down, and lit it off with my cigarette lighter. I'm still waiting for all of my eyebrows to grow back!

RE: Airbag fill ports?

On the bottom of the rear quarter panel (fender?) pointing downward. One on each side. I didn't choose this location. It was chosen by the vendor that installed the air bags, and seems to be a good location. I think the lower part of the panel is plastic. I saw holes there... I was worried about ice build up or road gravel causing damage. Several inside the wheel well as well, where the optional liner would attach. Same concerns. How have yours held up? They still look like new after 5 years;however, I don't drive on snow or ice.

RE: vented box for Honda 2200 generator

I used one of these and was very happy with it. I had mine custom built a bit wider so that I could put a 2-gallon gas can in the same box. One of those tall, wide, and narrow plastic gas cans that people carry on ATV's. https://kshmarine.com/custom-generator-boxes/

RE: Retracting jacks while unhooked

Sometimes my auto level system will bottom out the front Jack's as part of the leveling process. Actually displays "bottoming out jacks". So I doubt it puts undue stress on the front axle.

RE: Family National Parks Road Trip

Way too many stops and way too many miles for only 3 weeks. I think you would be better off to pick 3 to 5 parks that are closest to your home (and forget about Las Vegas).

RE: Looking for Solar Panel system to just MAINTAIN battery

I use a 30-watt panel aimed toward the southern sky. It keeps 2 12-volt batteries charged at 100% for the 6 months it is in storage. Panel and controller cost about $120 total. And we don't get a lot of winter sun here in the NW. Also, I hook the charge controller directly to the batteries and leave the battery disconnect switch in the OFF position to eliminate any draws.

RE: Fort Wilkins SP, MI

Ft. Wilkins is not, in itself, worthy of a drive from St. Louis. It is nicely maintained, interesting, but so small that you can see all of it in under 2 hours. However, there is much more on the Keweenaw Peninsula to see that would make the trip well worth it. There is: A tour of the Franklin Copper Mine at Hancock Keweenaw National Historic Park The Jampot - A monastery that sells the best pastries and jams Brockway Mountain Drive - scenic Boat trip to Isle Royale National Park And McLain SP for camping. For more info, see: https://www.keweenaw.info/

RE: 2020 Super duty front hitch

If you are open to a solution not using the tow hooks, I'm sure you can find a front-mounted hitch receiver at e-Trailer.com.

My tires have a max psi of 110. I inflate them to 105, set the upper limit to 115, and the lower limit to 100.
