RE: trailer brakes failed, any brake experts on here?

Common issue, go under the trailer and check the wiring to all wheels. They run trough the axle to the brake and rub through the insulation. They may have wire nut connections, check them.

RE: New to all this..

Make your best guess as to where the studs are using a stud finder. Drill a tiny hole and insert a bent paper clip and probe side to side to see if you are in a stud or if there is one nearby. If it is a no go, fill the tiny hole and try again. They use steel plate backers, try using a magnet and looking for the plate in the area you would mount a TV. They are not always where you would think, I had one at 90 angle to the couch. I have found inspection scopes to be a handy tool for "looking inside." Scope

RE: Hire company to drive Motorhome home

Who is the RV insured through? Many policy's have coverage for this scenario, that was why I carry Coach Net, wife can drive the truck but cannot pull the 5W.

RE: 140 PSI Water Pressure

Who sets water pressure that high, never seen it. Did you gauge the pressure your self with a reliable gauge.

RE: Blown engine

Do some shopping around. You should be able to get the job done for about half what that dealer quoted. Lots of those engines on the internet with warranty for 4-5000. Visone RV salvage has some low mileage 8100's from 3-4000.00 This is good advise shop around and have it towed to a repair shop. I'm sure there are some good used engines around, or Internet rebuilt short blocks and use whats still good on yours. I use a local shop that is 1/2 the shop rate of dealerships. Someone pays for that pretty building they are in. I was a Ford/Lincoln/Mercury mechanic coming home from Vietnam.

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.
