RE: Feds open 1.4 million acres to hunters and fishermen

One of the primary purposes of many (not all) regulations is to provide an advantage to a large donor to the politician that obtained the advantage for the contributor. The stated purpose is simply the cover story for the corruption. Sad, but true.

RE: no water pressure thru hot water side

Do you have the water line bypass valve to the water heater closed?

RE: Anyone ever use one of these

Works well, precool small bottles in freezer and you get pretty close to a full refill.

RE: I 76 Neb to Denver

Just drove it east bound from Denver to I80 on Monday. I really would not call it wash board as 5ne ride is tolerable, but there is enough surface wear from heavy vehicles that there is a loud oscillation thump in most sections, As was mentioned, the left lane is much better, but they have posted signs on state law requires moving back to right after passing. Although it is not a terrible ride, the sound is very annoying.

RE: split mattress question

We have had our bedroom slide with split mattress for over four years. We do not strip the bed. Just flip up and minimal adjustment when you flip back down. Comfort was good but as one of us is at 270# we added a foam mattress pad and it still folds easily. The split is under the leg area and is not not noticeable even when getting in and out from the bottom. Our longest trip was thirty days and comfort was good. We have not replaced, but I will assume that cost will be higher.

RE: Best motor oil for MB Sprinter diesel engine

Be awesome to see a list of all the oils available, which currently do meet the required Spec. Like this.

RE: Best motor oil for MB Sprinter diesel engine

As a practical matter on current model MB Sprinter specs that meet/exceed manufacturer warranty requirements purchase Mobil 1 #120760 5-quart jugs of European Car Formula 0W40. It is available at Walmart for approx $4.50 per quart in the 5-quart jugs. Keep your receipt and the two quarts left in your third jug for the unlikely event that you must provide backup for warranty claim. Hard to find a better price/solution but, of course, there will be one hundred other opinions and non-relevant comments. I simply want to provide one simple, relevant reply to your request.

RE: Gas prices.

they blame gas prices on shortages which I think is BS since the east coast doesn't seem to have that problem this year. it's all on the shoulders of the oil companies. they raise their prices at the drop of a hat and they always make sure they have a hat to drop. they are crooks 100% Yes, there are crooks. The tax hidden in gasoline in CA is about 75 cents when you include underground storage tax, state taxes and federal tax. The supplier pays thousands in transport tax, fees and permits to get it there after it is found and refined. Have to think about who are the crooks.

RE: Harley Battery Drains When Traveling

I pulled my Harley from AZ to FL and back (and other long trips) and never had a battery issue. Could it be your battery? Your 2011 does not apply. As was stated prior, the manual enlightens transport mode for this very reason.

RE: Jensen Radio has dark screen

Try disconnecting all power to the radio to reset. These devices have both ignition on, and battery power input. A better than nothing suggestion. Good luck. YES. I have had this happen a couple of times and this solution resolved.

RE: Swapping a TOAD for a scooter?

We switched about four years ago and I still cannot say it was the right thing to do. When the weather is warm it works very well. But when cold or rainy we find ourselves just not going out. We originally decided that if we needed transportation for considerable distance in metro areas we would rent a car. So far that has not been necessary. We haul a pretty large scooter (Yamaha Majesty) so we can move with highway traffic and it works well for two up riding with a large under seat cavity for groceries. It is a real plus for parking. I can load and unload without assistance but it does take a bit of time to secure for travel.

RE: Volt meter question?????

To get 36 volts the batteries are connected in series from positive to negative of next battery. Reading voltage from the positive and negative on one battery reads only that battery individually. To read them as one 36 volt battery you must connect to the negative on one end of the series and the positive on the other end of the series the same way that they are connected to supply power to your cart.

RE: Renting Class C for Nat'l Parks Roadtrip

You also may wish to check into having a rental car delivered for a couple of days at some locations to get around and park easier and cheaper with superior fuel economy.

RE: Stand-alone GPS or smartphone?

I prefer using a cell phone--but there are times when there is no cell signal--in mountains etc. GPS uses a satellite signal, not a cell network signal. I routinely use my smart phone GPS when I'm WELL out of cell service. As a pilot I'm often "out of service" at only a few thousand feet up. You just have to have the map database on the phone itself instead of something that needs to fetch the maps as you move along. True, but you better have a ton of memory available for the maps if you wish to have the whole country unless you want to continually swap data maps with destinations around the country:

RE: Using Cell Phone As Your GPS

When no cell service the phone has no internal data available. (NAVIGON app was the exception with download of all states available, but has been discontinued.) Dedicated GPS has all of the map data internal but must be updated from time to time. It works all the time and does not require a cell signal. As to the phone, google maps was significantly superior to Apple maps, but recently has improved ten fold and is now pretty much an equal, and occasionally better than google maps. Having both dedicated gps and phone maps is ideal.

RE: What cellular company?

Little known secret is Cricket. It duplicates ATT but at much less cost. The unlimited plan allows 4 lines at $100 or $55 for one line. The only difference we have found from ATT is no option for the watch with iPhone. $10 extra for hotspot is available. Our son has T-mobile and has good coverage in metro areas, but found no service in parts of the Midwest.

RE: Forecast of minus 60 in mid-west.

Yes, just hype. In Brainard, MN the windchill is - 50, but the actual temp is a balmy -34, that is is really only 66 degrees below freezing. Warming right up by putting hands in freezer at just 0.

RE: A drone while camping

If I see one hovering over my campsite I'm firing away with my slingshot. I can't tell if it's a high end unit scoping out the site or some kid playing around. Hope it is not one that has the gun mounted. Good luck.

RE: Directv H25 problems

Are you positive you ever had HD. I have not seen a dome antenna that can provide HD to a Directv receiver. Dish, yes, but DTV is a no. (Once Imthought I was wrong, but I was mistaken.)

RE: Surveillance Camera Setups on your RV

This post is a perfect example of why this forum is dying a slow and painful death. ...... OP, great job. I live out in the middle of 50 acres and have cameras set up outside. Yes, I only rarely post largely due to the incredibly rude, obnoxious and useless responses. I wouldn't think of leaving home without my motion detection cameras up and running. I thought pretty much everyone, at the very least, has a doorbell camera. There is video from those a couple times a week on the news, most of the time solving the crime. Thinking about this...maybe one could move their dashcam over to the window by the door when parked. That is the climate we live in. Everyone has an ahole and an opinion that must be shouted out. Anyway thanks to the op for sharing.
