RE: RV door window

I put one similar to that in my cargo trailer. I don't know if it's the same but on mine the inner and outer cut outs were slightly different sized so when the two halves of the frame screw together they overlap. Might not hurt to read the reviews, several complaints that the actual frame is smaller than the original and can be a boner to line it up to ensure complete weather sealing.

RE: Battery tender & storage

I believe keeping your batteries plugged in 24/7 eats your plates away quicker than leaving your MH unplugged and recharging when the SOC reaches 80-90%. And where does belief come from pray tell.

RE: %#$@^ critters!

Great LOL. Now his mice will be running around the RV 6" apart wearing little surgical masks while facing the possibility of being locked down by Dr Mauci. That has to top the hilarious sarcasm if I ever read one.

RE: 2020 F350 6.7 weak start

We have a 2019 Highlander. Was sitting in a parking lot waiting on my wife while she was in a fabric store. Ignition in accessory position, radio on nothing else. The master alarm suddenly goes off and the dash display pops the following message " shutting Ignition off to conserve battery". Radio only????? After 20 minutes???? ..... Mfgr's put the smallest battery in there, thank the bean counters.

RE: Battery tender & storage

I have 3 battery tenders, one for my ATV and the other 2 do the boat battery and trailer battery. During the off season, they stay connected ALL the time and plugged in. I have never had to add water to the batteries even after 6 months of maintenance. They are made to stay connected and keep the batteries from sulfating. A couple of them have lasted 12 years, boat and RV 11. I'm pretty sure I'm doing something right.

RE: Finding a 3500 series truck to test drive....

Seriously, I would make the effort and have the death wobble fixed. On my old 2004, it was ball joints, replaced them, no more wobble. As for reliability, I would take any 5.9 Cummins before any GM or Ford. Ford feels like driving a brick, GM's seats are like milk crates.

And we wonder why nothing really works properly with the nitwits inventing useless trinkets.

RE: What is happening with our members?

You have to hold them by the hand nowadays. Being a kinder gentler world can be beyond comprehension, makes you wonder how they get dressed in the morning.

RE: Decent Digital Camera

What RCMAN46 said, I've got a Canon SX510, it's got a 30X zoom and even that is amazing.

RE: Compartment latches and locks

I would say the biggest problem with the cam locks are a lack of a rear backing plate that is secured to the inside of the hatch door. A simple 2x2" piece of aluminum 1/16th inch plate with the hole and half moon shape cut out secured with either screws or rivets, depending on the inside material. It will keep the whole lock from rotating.

RE: Recommendations for replacing my Michelin LTX M&S tires

... snipped ... We've run on BFG AT tires for years. We carry a 3200 lbs Truck Camper, and often towed a 3200 lbs cargo/bike trailer. We run LT285-70-R17E ... 75 lbs in rear, 70 lbs in front when loaded and hauling. These too have been recommended. Are you happy with these tires? What's the impact of the more aggressive AT tread? My son tried Toyo's on his truck, tried 3 times to get them balanced, back to the dealer and got the Michelin Defenders. Balanced and happy.

RE: Wierd Email

The CSS text you posted is not malicious, just styling the display. Either the person who sent the email messed up, or your browser cache is corrupted and should be cleared out. While I would agree that the snip is not malicious there is the distinct possibility since the OP mentioned this is an email and only is a snip of it and the same email opens fine on their own email server but not on Win10 mail client that it may be a security setting or possibly a recent security update to their Win10 PC which may have blocked or remove portions of the email.. They mentioned something about views fine on their own email server, but it doesn't view fine on their Win10 mail client (separate PC?) so I am guessing that they have their own email server serving up the emails to a Win10 mail client.. No it's on the same PC. I use Rogers.com, it provides Yahoo mail which shows the email properly. When I open the email with W10 mail, then it has the gibberish. Depending on their configuration their own email server, firewall configuration and so on could even be playing a part in what they are seeing. It is possible they can open the email on their own email server and it show correctly, but not on the remote email client. They may need to check their own email server for needed security updates and correct configuration. Some emails to reduce the file size sent will use a remote website to host repetitive pictures like backgrounds, signatures, logos.. Blocking (not trusting, blacklisting, firewalling those websites can break what you see in your emails.. I will go and check if there's any updates to W10, usually it does them at night, and if required notifies me to do a restart if required.

RE: Wierd Email

Without a style sheet such as CSS, a site would display differently in your browser. Which do you prefer? GoodSam.com GoodSam.com (w/no styling) I prefer the first one.

It's not a typo, they forgot to mention kgs, 1550 kgs = 3415 lbs. https://dcadprod.azureedge.net/b2b-experience-production/attachments/cl16ju0hv0buv01kvmu9taxm5-agilis-crossclimate-b2b-product-sheet-e.pdf

RE: Wierd Email

Unless the body of that email had something important in it I would have to say it is most likely a spam or spoofed email and may have even had malicious content embeded in the headers or body and your email client stripped and blocked parts of the email of that content resulting in you seeing all of the normally hidden content. The snip you posted looks like a crummy commercial for something like a program or app as it mentioned googleplay and appstore.. Yes it is an ad from Pizza Hut. A month or so ago, they all came out "normal", also the odd email from friends that do that. However, when I sign into my main email/internet server and go to mail there, it's all normal, so I'm now suspecting it's a setting W10 mail I haven't found yet. A bit of a pain.

Well looked and saw that preferences show text and images, have to do some more digging.

Wierd Email

Usually I can get myself out of a bind but I'm stumped on this one. I run W10 on a PC with the email that comes with it and FireFox. About half the emails come out normal, the other half ends up being these long crazy things. I copied just a small portion to give you an idea. Any idea how to fix this. =20 .dropdisclaimer-helppmc{ width:100% !important; float: left !important; padding: 5px 0 5px 0 !important; display: block !important; text-align: center !important; } =09 .googleplay { width:100% !important; float: left !important; display: block !important; margin:0 auto !important; text-align: center !important; } .appstore { width:100% !important; float: left !important; padding: 10px 0 10px 0 !important; display: block !important; margin:0 auto !important;

RE: Cool video from airstream. EV self propelled trailer.

After listening to the blond for about 5 seconds, I have an idea who these are targeted at.
