RE: cubic mini stove question

Well it's wood fired and you better start early to get supper on time. On a 90F day, your A/C might complain.

RE: Jacking/Lifting Trailer for Wheel Bearing/Brake Service?

Just go rent a 10 ton fork lift and be done with it.

RE: Looking for a Good Men's Hair dressing

Odds & Ends Carpet Warehouse. The less hair there is, less time in the barber chair. The only difference I noticed, I have to wear a hat on the bright sunny days from overheating the computer and something warm in the winter to keep the computer running.

RE: Friction hinges, easy way to change?

Careful what you wish for. I installed a pair of the friction hinges after getting smacked in the back and lower legs a few times and don't regret it at all. Maybe a couple drops of low viscosity oil will free them up a bit.

RE: How many folks just want to gripe about EVs?

The way I look at it, for the moment and near future, EV's may be okay for work commutes and grocery wagons. When it comes to towing, not so good. Who wants to spend hours recharging on holiday time just to get to your destination. The further you get away from highly populated areas, charge stations become like unobtainium, and then only small numbers. When I go into the woods for remote boondocking, it's a complete forgetaboutit. Not happening period. And why should I run a generator for recharging, that's not the idea behind EV's.

RE: RAM 1500 EcoDiesel Productions Ends in January

They are apparently not good sellers. Otherwise they would find a way to keep them coming. Same as this whole thing about them getting rid of the Challenger and Charger. They're not selling well or they would find a way to keep making them. I'm old enough to remember way back when on RV.net a lot of people said if they would just make a 1/2 ton diesel I would buy it. Well, they made it and I guess a lot of those people were not telling the truth. Or not enough of them anyway. Does Nissan still even make that Cummins thing? That thing cost as much as a 3/4 ton and got the fuel mileage of a 3/4 ton and had a payload of a Dodge Colt. Nope the Titan/Cummins is looong gone.

RE: Diesel Ram Owner Forced to Scrap Truck !

They gave him the option of returning it to stock. His own stupidity that he circumvented the system.

RE: Storing My Diesel Truck Over Winter Advice

No, leave it closed, dirt and errant bugs and other critters might explore and fall in. No worry.

RE: Storing My Diesel Truck Over Winter Advice

Get a battery maintainer and keep it plugged in, all the time. There are parasitic loads that will slowly kill the battery. You only need one, the batteries are wired together. If you can't power them inside the shop, bring them somewhere you can get power to do it. My 2004 went 10 years on the original batteries doing that.

RE: Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injection

DW has had the injections and radio ablation that toedtoes described in lumbar area. She had weeks of relief from the injections and months from the ablation. Right now, she's considering a procedure where spacers are glued into affected disc spaces (my interpretation of the procedure). This is minimally invasive and offers immediate relief with little recovery from the procedure and a more permanent solution. Her physician is an anesthesiologist that specializes as a pain doc and done many of these procedures with good record of positive results. Please keep us in the loop, I'm going through the same agony, L1-L5 discs pretty much pooched. North of the border we are still years behind in these types of operations.

Furion is not known to have the best quality by any stretch of the imagination.

RE: charging an EV at a campground

Part of the issue is that campgrounds were set up for camping and not charging EV's at whatever rate they use. Maybe campgrounds sould charge an extra $50 for that and slowly improve the wiring.

RE: Purchasing a Jackery or something similar....need help....

Save your money on any of those "solar generators". Buy some more solar panels and a good inverter for the RV. It will be money well spent, far more convenient than toting something else around, and likely less expensive. There has been a uptick in postings about these overpriced battery packs. What I have noticed is you cannot talk sense into the folks who wish to buy these overpriced batteries. They have already made up their minds to buy them and absolutely nothing posted that tells them to save their money is going to deter them. I am pretty much done trying to persuade them that they are a bad deal and not worth the $1,000 or more for what amounts to be a battery with the same capacity of a garden tractor battery.. Amen on that one brother. Their money and foolishness.

RE: Cleaning trailer electric cord contacts

Just be careful with the tiny brushes, if any of the metal bristles break off and lodge between the contacts, you might wonder why fuses are blowing.

RE: How To Clean This

Go to home Depot and get some caulk remover, there's a variety of brands even safe for use on fibreglass.

RE: Unbraked trailer, towing limitations

Marty and to add to the confusion for a dealer to sell a trailer in canada if it has a GVW over 2000lbs then it must be sold with break away trailer brakes. this insures all trailers sold in canada met the most strict of provincial requirments. If you look at the individual provincial requirements, it's still around 3000lbs in some provinces. I just spoke to a trailer shop and when I mentioned BC, his eyes rolled back so far...enough said.
