RE: Windows license scam

Shopper Drug Mart scammers are hard at it too, $90 gift certificate if you click on the link...Don't be tempted.

Last thing FCA needs are engineers of junk.

RE: Water pump question

Where would I add a winterization kit or use an existing fitting to add antifreeze to my system? It has to be added on the inlet side of the pump. If you get another hand threaded fitting and about 4 feet of appropriate sized hose, you can switch out the filter side with the short piece and stick the hose in a jug of RV antifreeze.

RE: Water pump question

I would believe that filter is on the inlet side of the system, no sense trying to run debris through the pump. That's how both mine have worked.

RE: Been a busy year

That was an awesome trip, super nice write up to go along with it. May you enjoy many more trips like that.

RE: Cold weather, generators, and campgrounds

My cartoon bubble: #1: Man did you hear all those generators last night cycling on and off? I hardly slept a wink. #2 Uhh, that was our furnace fan cycling on and off all night. In my rig the furnace cycling would be much louder than any generator noise sourced from "many" surrounding camp sites with the RV buttoned up to keep out the cold. In fact, I cannot imagine hearing a nearby generator from the inside of my RV in these conditions. Note that I am not a fan of generators in campgrounds even during the day. As for the "rules are rules" folks, rules are at the discretion of the enforcing authority to enforce as they see fit. I have to agree with you, two neighbouring trailers with furnaces cycling make more noise than my Honda 2k eu.

RE: In a quandary

It's a game of numbers and if anyone is following them you may see that even those fully vacc'd can still get it and end up hospitalized, still pass it on to others whether they are vacc'd or not. Of those that are not vacc'd, the underlying factors such as pre disposed medical conditions,ie, diabetes, etc or lifestyle,ie, obese tend to suffer far worse. I would also throw in a number of how many people are coming to your family get together, the bigger the number, the bigger the risk. I know my family members "don't poke the bear", ie, go to Wmart, Costco and other shopping venues that are still crowded beyond reason. To each their own.

RE: Running lights on cars

Those people you mention are probably doing "other" things or just plain expecting the rest of the world to accommodate their inability to concentrate on the right things to do, in other words careless. That's why I like my dash cam, my story, their story and the facts.

RE: Amps Draw and Voltage Drop Question 2

Toast comes first! The furnace can just wait a few minutes if a choice has to be made. :) https://m.media-amazon.com/images/I/81ZAv2zbG1L._AC_SL1500_.jpg height=300 width=300 CAMP STOVE TOASTER for $7 A low cost/low tech solution to a expensive high tech problem? :B Still have mine and it's never broken down or needed TLC.

RE: Anderson connectors: if too small, is that a bottleneck?

Pretty simple the way I see it. Anderson tells you what size per wire to use, if you're unsure, go up one size. There is no confusion.

RE: What causes soft floors

Bad design and use of interior low cost material.

RE: Need advice on 50 ft cable to portable solar panel

A gauge 10 cable with a length of 15 m, 50ft, has a maximum current of 5 Amps. This is for DC wiring. https://www.engineeringtoolbox.com/amps-wire-gauge-d_730.html This has a user chart you can put in your numbers. https://www.renogy.com/calculators#tab_solar-cable

RE: Aurora activity high -- and not much moon!

It seems like whenever the aurora is forecast, mother nature pulls the clouds over our heads. Cold midwestern winters gave us some awesome light shows.

RE: Newsom signs bill to ban the sell of gas powered generators

Why don't they include those stinking motorcycles. Motorcycles were indeed more fuel-efficient than cars and emitted less of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide, but they emitted far more smog-forming hydrocarbons and oxides of nitrogen, as well as the toxic air pollutant carbon monoxide. For the most recent model year vehicles tested -- from the '00s -- the motorcycle used 28% less fuel than the comparable decade car and emitted 30% fewer carbon dioxide emissions, but it emitted 416% more hydrocarbons, 3,220% more oxides of nitrogen and 8,065% more carbon monoxide.

RE: Which inverter?

I've had one of these for about 10 years now to power the TV and satellite receiver. Simple install and no issues. https://gpelectric.com/products/300-watt-pure-sine-wave-inverter/

RE: High profile tires on off road packages on trailers. hmmm

2. Resembling a stork. In other words, ridiculously large sized tires that make an object look taller. Sometimes related to those of small body parts.

RE: Samsung Galaxy Phone...How to send photos?

If it's like other Androids, go to Pictures, put your finger on the one you want to send. At the bottom it should show "share" with a bunch of options like "message" press message, then go to your contacts and pick the one you want to receive it. You can add text and then send. Hit send.

RE: Australian Truck Campers are dramatically growing

:( Probably, but not any better than the American built quality RVs. ;) Well that definitely wouldn't be hard to beat.

RE: Keystone

What BarabooBob said, I found the similar receptacle on the front corner of my Coleman, a 14 ga wire pair zip tied to the main battery cables. There's no controller. The actual plug was a ridiculous price at the dealer, but you can get them here. You may still have to insert a controller at the batter(ies) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yxYGaQX5GSQ
