RE: Pinbox moves?

There is a tolerance for movement, I do not know what it is. I was at a rally two years ago when one of the attendees had this issue. It was taken back to the factory and the front cap removed for measurements, they welded additional bracing to eliminate the amount of flex.

RE: US 84 New Mexico

My map shows 84 between I 40 and I 25 and extends beyond both. I think you are looking at 285 that continues out of Santa Fe. Just checked the map and see it runs with I25 and south near Santa Rosa. After looking I have run 84 south from there to Mule Shoe TX down to Abilene. Guess CRS has stuck, can't remember sh*t.;)

RE: 75 Speed Limit - How Fast

The GOOD NEWS...you are in the Fort Worth area! Jerry Nope. I’m all over the US. With experience you can’t hope to match for vehicle type, weather, roads and loads. And it looks (again) with understanding of the rules you ignore when convenient. You one of them runs at too high a speed into a construction zone to “get ahead” of the big truck. Jam yourself in front of him as he tries to keep a reasonable distance? And you’ve attached your nose to the hindquarters of the car ahead of you. Who has done the same again, and again, seven cars ahead? No braking distance at all? The Midwest beats the South any day for intelligent drivers. As a class, they’ve all but disappeared (farmers & ranchers used to be among them; not any more). Connecticut is — generally — the state where skill & vehicle & ROW best come together. Indiana doesn’t have the worst drivers. But they’ll take advantage of the lower truck speed limit to cut over too late, brake, and exit the highway. Enter a single lane. Even accelerate to do it. If that truck driver had to brake to avoid hitting you the “accident” won’t be his fault. If it’s me, I know how to keep my truck upright and lane-centtered to come to a controlled-stop. It WON’T be with you jammed under my right Steer tire. You’ll be somewhere other than on the road is my guess of how it’ll go. Unlike you I have a family who expects me to come home. Also unlike you I have devices recording all that I do. A medical card. HOS regulations. I must daily certify the vehicle is safe to operate. Etc. And I’ve gamed out how to control a situation with the least damage. Whether or not you go home is up to you. Know the rules. Stay inside them. For an RV’er, ones at the helm of the LEAST capable vehicle out there. With the least capable driver (he’s always the new guy). On a two week vacation you MIGHT have worked out the rhythms by the time you get home. Every one believes that they are good drivers. The differences between best and worst are tiny. At speed, it’s all about vehicle separation. Use ROW — and separation — then the habits become natural. Having a trailer behind you shouldn’t occasion ANY CHANGES WHATSOEVER. But RVers are bad drivers. How do I know? Just read here about “engine power”. And NOTHING about steering control or antilock trailer disc brakes. “Payload” and “Tongue Weight” and “Tow Capacity” and other non-existent (imaginary) “concerns”. What’s the RVer answer to what they think is a bad TV? Get a worse one. . . Not quite correct there are a lot of "depends" in ROW. How do I know? Twenty five years county patrol, zero accidents but investigated a ton. Then bought a class 8 when I retired and ran as O/O under the same conditions you quoted, HOS, Sat tracking (I leased to a large co) Again zero accidents, sold after 750K due to medical issues. You and I know in the class 8 you leave some space and someone is going to take it. The safe driver, what ever hes driving, needs to be driving 1/4 mile or more ahead and adjust your driving by whats happening way up there. Yes merging into traffic has become a lost art in the it's all about me world.

RE: Steamed Clams, Pacific NW - Washington

WOW. I'm without words with your responses. I'm glad that you have moved on and are now far, far away! Reading comprehension is apparently not important to you. In the nearly 50 years that I have lived in the area, I do not know anyone who travels to Coupeville or areas north of there who actually uses the Clinton Ferry to get there. I've worked in Oak Harbor, Coupeville, and Port Townsend for many years. Do not take the ferry from Clinton to get to Coupeville, no one suggested it! Get it? The steamed clams are worth the trip. Your post 7: I'm a bit baffled about how expensive ferry rides ($3.50/person, $1.75/senior for a walk-on to Port Townsend from Coupeville (Keystone). . . cheap for the experience) and crowded Deception Pass (20 miles to the North, which is another great and worthwhile experience) has anything to do with great steamed clams? Take the ferry to Port Townsend for the afternoon and visit Deception Pass State Park on your way to Coupeville. I've lived in the area for nearly 50 years and haven't been overwhelmed by yuppies yet. -------------------------------------------------------------------- $3.50 walk on explain how he does that, he has to get to Coupeville first. Your a Whidbey expert that lives in Anacortes, not even the same county. I moved to Whidbey from San Jaun Island when I got tired of a 2 hour ferry ride. I guess you missed I lived on the island and was trying to give helpful information to a tourist, not how cheap the ferry ride was. He has zero knowledge of the area or he wouldn't be asking. You are the exact reason I moved off the island when I retired, you obviously know all there is about WA and change the facts to fit YOUR story. Say hello to Inslee and the rest of the liberals up the way, I'll stick with the ranchers down this way.

RE: Fridge warming up overnight

That model does not have 'defrost' mode That model is equipped with an automatic Low Ambient Control (LAC) function *turns food compartment light ON when ambient air temps drop below 50*F ---- no on/off switch (light causes a heat load so thermostat calls for longer heat cycles/colder temps That model only has 3 temp setting.....narrow range control You have proven cooling unit functions properly (Direct wiring of element) SO...... Unplug the thermistor leads from lower circuit board (P2 connector at J3 --- S/B white leads) Run fridge overnight w/o thermistor sensing and fridge temps should go down and stay down If they do replace the thermistor Snip-The-Tip Rheostat thermistor replacement This is your resident expert, he's helped me with a Norcold cooling issue. Always good advice.

RE: US 84 New Mexico

I run that route regularly 84 to visit relatives in CO. 84 does not go to I40, it connects to I25 and you go south to 40. Where are you starting & going, I live in NM for 20 year+

RE: Crater of Diamonds State Park, arkansas

How does one spot a diamond amongst all that dirt and other stones? You wash or walk and pickup anything that shines. They will look them over on the way out and tell you if you have any. They sell small plastic boxes so you don't loose the little ones.

RE: 50 Amp service question

And that 43 amps is probably on start-up. Correct about 13amps running.

Take the ferry to Port Townsend for the afternoon and visit Deception Pass State Park on your way to Coupeville. I've lived in the area for nearly 50 years and haven't been overwhelmed by yuppies yet. This is a camping forum and I assume they will be taking a camper to see the sights, then add wait time. Not every one walks on, so they walk on and end up in Clinton. They hitchhike or wait for a bus? How much time waiting for the bus Clinton to Coupeville? Coupeville to DP? DP back to Clinton? If you live there you know it takes hours to get across most of the time, especially weekends. Just from your response I suspect your one of the liberals and drive a Prious, your not a Sherman or Engle that's for sure. There are 3 separate ares, military north, central was farming & dairy now taken over by liberals, and south with the alternative living folks. I'm am so glad to be away from the entire states liberals. BTW my RV's 37ft pulled by an F350 Crew cab super duty long bed, I guess 50ft-60ft so $71.00 each way, I can buy a lot of clams for $142. Ferry fares: Vehicle, Motorcycle, and Stowage Fares Vehicle Under 14' (less than 168”) & Driver $9.70 Vehicle Under 22' (standard veh) & Driver $12.25 Vehicle U14' (less than 168") & Sr/Disability Driver $8.30 Vehicle U22' (standard veh) & Sr/Disability Driver $10.85 Motorcycle & Driver $5.45 Motorcycle & Senior/Disability Driver $4.05 Vehicle Length-Based Vehicle Under 30' Under 7'2 in. $18.15 Vehicle Under 30' Over 7'2 in. $35.75 Vehicle Under 40' $47.50 Vehicle Under 50' $59.25 Vehicle Under 60' $71.00 Vehicle Under 70' $82.75 Vehicle Under 80' $94.50 Cost per foot over 80' $1.20 a foot Why would you ever consider doing the ferry from Clinton to Whidbey Island? It's expensive and prone to overuse. The poster is coming to explore our area. The route around the North end of Whidbey Island is usually faster without waits and is more interesting. I'm sorry that your political issues have influenced your reasoning. I suspect that the moderators are about to remove your posts. The OP asked about steamed clams and has no idea what the areas like. Looking at maps you find two ways to get there and with no knowledge he could well take the ferry route, and be very disappointed he did. I know exactly where you are I visited the owner of the tow service regularly. Tell me how he gets to Coupeville without his vehicle, should he leave the RV in Skagit Co? With out a years prior reservations he'll not find a camp site unless you'll let him use your yard. Yes it's beautiful on Whidbey, that's why is getting impossible to get there to visit unless you know someone or want to stay in a motel. It's cheap to go there when you can walk on the ferry and walk home, it's that's simple. Gas $2.99 - $3.05 when the national average is $2.19, every thing there is over priced, you pay for location. He's pulling an RV and likely has a diesel, what's the current price there, $1.85 here a couple days ago. Whats he do with that RV if he's to go to Port Townsend? The food maybe great in Coupelville but your going to pay for it muti times over.

RE: black tank flush port

You can close the valve while flushing, you will put approx 5 gallons a minute into the tank. Open & refill as needed until the tank waters running clear. DO NOT GET DISTRACTED, that can lead to serious damage. Keep the black closed except dumping or flushing.

RE: Steamed Clams, Pacific NW - Washington

The absolutely best steamed clams are at the Front Street Grill in Coupeville, WA on Penn Cove, Whidbey Island, WA. Their Coconut Green Curry Mussels from Penn Cove are even better. We were there for lunch when Tom Douglas (probably the best restauranteur in the NW) brought a tour group there for lunch. I raise my own Pacific oysters (6,500), Manilla clams (12,000), Mediterranean mussels (15,000) and geoducks (35) on my beach. I go there when the tides are not favorable. Go there. Coupeville has gotten too ....... yuppie, I lived there 23 year on acreage near Admirals cove. Ferry rides too expensive and Deception Pass too crowded.

RE: What axle do I have?

There should be a label like this on the axle: 7 and 8K are the same with the exception of the outer bearing and most 7K have 1/2 lug studs, 8k will be 9/16. https://i.imgur.com/SEzimR8l.jpg
