RE: No Corona

Dang the Corona brewery is stoping production! Now we have to drink more Tequila, Mezcal and pulque, such is life at the moment. navegator Not funny. Having 2 daughters working on the front lines (nurses), I have to ask the moderator to remove this insensitive comment. What does a brewery discontinuing production have to do with anyone respectfully working on the front lines? Disconnect?

RE: 120 volt cigarette lighter size outlet

Thanks for taking a shot at it, I just found what yo linked as well. I may need a short cord like that when this is all said and done. But I'm hoping to find a 120v outlet that will permanently mount in the center console. The snap in might be where I'll have to go. But I would really like to find a round one that I can just drill a hole to mount. https://i.imgur.com/xwSditJ.jpg?1 height=480 Probably the only way to do it round would be to use a bulb socket on the inside and ‘this screwed in if you do not need a grounded outlet: Adapter

RE: Flatulence causing CO/Propane detector alarm?

Simple cure, a cork, and some super glue. “ Man in Africa killed by flying cork.”

Would that not be an extension cord? Something like this : Cord outlet Or wire it yourself with this: Outlet

RE: How about Adobe Illustrator alternatives for mac

Why not just kick the limited "MAC" to the curb and move to all Windows PC, then you do not have to scrape around with hodgepodge hokey patches and Windows PC software is more readily available to boot? "hodgepodge hokey patches"? You obviously don't know what you're talking about. Funny! pC magazine had an article asking why a MAC ran windows software more reliably than a PC. :B

RE: Camco water filter

If you do not already have a water pitcher for drinking, pass on the Britta and get a Zero Water. The difference is amazing. The Brita usually leaves about 100 ppm and zero water leaves actual zero. If you already have a Brita, check into ordering a replacement filter for it from Zero. We cannot tell the difference between this pitcher water and pure bottled water.

RE: Psssst...wanna see a Wall?

What a colossal waste of money. It's like a padlock that only keeps honest people out. Cost less than the healthcare web site that did not work and invasions have dropped significantly. Thanks for the photos of the beautiful wall.

RE: Looking for solar info UPDATE

We are just looking for a small affordable solar system. This would be used to recharge a GRP 31 deep cycle battery ONLY. We just want it for lights and maybe rechargeable items. What would be good for wattage? 100 watts? 50? Pcm controller? We will use the generator for all the power hogs onboard. Thx In May at 49N sunny all day I measured an AH haul of 56AH with a 130w panel lying flat. That would bring your battery up from 50% SOC However--- 1. You will be using your battery all day too, 2. It is not sunny all day every day 3. It is not May all year 4. An RV has wheels so you will not be at the same latitude all year. So it is a total WAG, but 200w flat might be enough most times, and you do have a generator for recharging via converter if not enough sun at times. You can use a PWM controller with the 200w. An MPPT will only do a little better (maybe!) and will likely cost more. Good answer. We spent 4 days at Lake Havasu and had minimal gen time for microwave. Batteries recharged each day for lights, water pump, furnace fan, and a couple of hours of satellite receiver and television. Batteries were recharged every day.

RE: AZ79 Between Tucson and US60.

Tangerine is north of Oro Valley and has limited traffic light. Less stressful than I10. Is it Tangerine or Cortero Farms that makes people sea sick? Twin Peaks on Tngerine to Oracle is mostly nice new four lane, so must be Cortaro, but do not drive that so cannot say.

RE: AZ79 Between Tucson and US60.

Straight, flat road. If it were me, though, I'd stay on I-10. why?Because I can get to Mesa much quicker on the 10 and with less hassle. I only drive on the 79 when we're headed to one of the lakes NE of Phoenix. I've driven the slow route through Tucson's congested streets for too many years, stopping at every intersection in Oro Valley for red lights, putting up with 45 mph speed limits on 6 lane roads, to name a few. Too much stress. ok, thanks. Tangerine is north of Oro Valley and has limited traffic light. Less stressful than I10.

RE: AZ79 Between Tucson and US60.

Assuming you are referencing 79 through Florence. Good road and no problem. I would use I10 through Tucson and exit on Twin Peaks Road to Tangerine, then East to pickup Oracle through Catalina. 79 is a left turn just North of Catalina and nice drive to US 60 north of Florence.

RE: Camping Lights

Consideration is usually egocentric. One person does not like a flickering tv, but just loves his flickering fire. The next does not like the sound level, but his barking dog is fine with him. The early departure irritates the late partiers that irritated everyone late at night. And, so it goes.

RE: Motorhomes on Mercedes Chassis

Have to love the speculation as opposed to facts, Waiting for all of the photos of MB chassis motor homes blown over along the road Speculation has nothing to do with it: Some of us don't need it to have "already happened" in order to try and be proactive at purchase time -> to ensure that it never ever would happen to us. Yet you speculated on parts availability and oil rather than looking. With your advanced engineering degree, I should have realized that with 100s of thousands of miles over many years, they just haven’t found your wind yet. Sheesh, I give up, Enjoy.

RE: Motorhomes on Mercedes Chassis

Have to love the speculation as opposed to facts, Waiting for all of the photos of MB chassis motor homes blown over along the road. In high gust crosswinds, any stock chassis can benefit from upgraded rear stabilizer and shocks. This statement is exemplary of no-knowledge speculation, “ I wonder if there are after-market heavy duty front and rear stabilizer bars available for the Sprinter. It would not surprise me if there is nothing available because MB is very stern on keeping everything MB down to the motor oil. Anything not MB voids their warranty. What a scam MB has going there.” A simple web search would provide the answer prior to posting incorrect speculation. All manufacturers provide oil specs and several suppliers meet those specs. Also can readily be found with a web search. Full disclosure: I did upgrade the rear stabilizer and shocks (yes they are sold) and the improvement is substantial removing cornering tilt and making passing semis in wind a non-event. Apparently all of the stabilization parts for other makes of chassis just sit on vendor shelves and are not actually sold as the vehicles are perfect from the OEM. Sorry, but what a bunch of ****.

RE: Motorhomes on Mercedes Chassis

2014 with 30,000 great miles. Maintained speed on interstate mountain climbs passing diesel pushers easily. Not sure why someone else paid so much for maintenance. Replaced fuel filter easily myself for about fifty bucks. New windshield was $250. And front end alignment was $125.00 in Arizona. Never less than 14 mpg and have seen as high as 18 on a tank.

RE: Built in vs. Stand-alone GPS?

In dash is nice except for the ripoff prices for updates. My experience with GM products is that they are a year or two behind Garmin on map updates and charge as much annually as the cost of a new Garmin each time and the Garmin has no cost lifetime map updates.

RE: RVND 7710 GPS No More Maps

Thanks for your post. I am still getting updates regularly on my 12 year old Garmin and will be sure to not purchspase RM.
