RE: Sinarek closet. Slide

Could be a low voltage issue. Check (and clean) all your connections and pay special attention to the ground connection.

Go here - Remco Towing Plug in your vehicle info and you'll be told if you can tow, or what modifications are required to make it tow-able.

RE: Difference between NiCad and NiMH batteries

Charge rate is different, so you're taking a chance of battery damage if you change to NiMH. "Nickel-based batteries are best fast charged; a lingering slow charge causes “memory.” Nickel- and lithium-based batteries require different charge algorithms. A NiMH charger can also charge NiCd; a NiCd charger would overcharge NiMH. Do not leave a nickel-based battery in the charger for more than a few days" The above taken from Battery University That said, I changed to NiMH for my solar powered shed lights and they worked fine.

RE: Interior dash lights flickering

It could possibly be your dimmer control. I had that happen and turned the dimmer control to both limits (full bright to full dim) several times .... all was well and hasn't happened since.

RE: Boycott campgrouunds that allow campfires.

Personally it wouldn't bother me if you DO boycott campgrounds that allow campfires. Leave them for the rest of us that enjoy the camping experience.

RE: Sewage Follies

my guess is the trough was in response to the mental midgets who couldn't manage to connect their 3" hoses to the sewer connection.Close to whats happening around here (WA State) ... I've found everything from rocks to diapers plugging the 3" waste dump. I've used my awning rod to fish stuff out so I could use it. In response the Road Dpt has started adding cross rods a couple of inches into the connector. Trouble is rocks still manage to get past the rods and pile up in the first elbow or trap out of reach. It seems to be a lot worse where roadside rest stops have a large population of homeless. The rest stops in rural areas are seldom plugged or shut down.

RE: Pressure Pro TPMS battery replacement

I did and the battery is soldered in. Getting it sealed back up will be challenging. As a previous owner you should be able to get them for $25. I would call them.X2 I called and replaced mine for $25 each. After 7 years I didn't object to replacing with new.

RE: Need help with dimmer switch

It may not be as simple as which wire goes where. My dimmer replacement called for a PWM (Pulse Wave Modulated) dimmer, not a simple 12v resistance type. Example Google "12v modulated dimmer switch" for multiple sources.

RE: A poll: What does 2 blinks of the left signal mean to you?

Does anyone remember when the speed limit signs on Hwy's also included "Minimum" speed? And I have a couple of tickets to show from going below the posted Low Limit. The Minimum began to disappear soon after the Interstate system became our main roadways. Not only do I remember it...it's still there on most freeways. It has been changed in many states to bump it up to 55mph and even if not posted, many vehicle codes still include it.Good to know - I just haven't seen it in a LONG time.

RE: A poll: What does 2 blinks of the left signal mean to you?

Missouri 304.011.1 - No person shall drive a motor vehicle at such a slow speed as to impede or block the normal and reasonable movement of traffic, except when reduced speed is necessary for safe operation or in compliance with law. Peace officers may enforce the provisions of this section by directions to drivers, and in the event of apparent willful disobedience to this provision and refusal to comply with direction of an officer in accordance herewith, the continued slow operation by a driver is a misdemeanor.

RE: A poll: What does 2 blinks of the left signal mean to you?

Age 80, I learned to drive in 1954. Back then, truck drivers would use this to mean (1). Today, I cannot recall seeing any trucker use that signal. And from anyone else, I would never trust it, and would wait until I could see for myself that it was safe to pass. X2

RE: Pex tubing.

No charge is unheard of, you must have a great smile. But seriously, if you shut off the valves how do you drain the lines?
