RE: Cleaning the outside of the 5'er do to oxidation

I've used PoliGlow in the past for an older 5er. The Poli Prep will remove all oxidation and discoloration, letting you start on a very clean slate. When I finished my front cap, I looked at it under a full moon and couldn't believe how shiny it was. https://www.poliglowproducts.com/#/

RE: toilet

2 suggestions. First, open the flush valve all the way and rotate a toilet bowl brush thoroughly in the opening. If that doesn't work, the next time the ball valve is dry, pour a couple ounces of vegetable oil in and let it sit for several hours.

RE: Catalytic converter anti-theft

Good luck with that. Here in northern MN, a pawn shop has a billboard saying they buy catalytic converters.

RE: uneven tire wear

Wear in the middle of the tire normally indicates overinflation. You said you air up all tires to 80 psi. The load that tire is carrying may just be too light for 80 psi. There are some places that do individual wheel weights, instead of by axle. You might want to check it out to see if you need to adjust tire pressures. I wondered about overinflation, but it is the only 1 of 4 tires with this problem and there’s really not that much variability in the weight. Also everything I read said blowout resistance was best at 80 (max) psi for trailer tires, nothing said anything about reducing inflation for reduced loads. Someplace that weighs each wheel individually will tell you exactly instead of guessing. At the very least, it would prove or disprove conclusively one possible problem. Here's a link to the Goodyear load/inflation chart. Please note this chart is for towable RVs, as in ST tires. https://www.goodyearrvtires.com/pdfs/rv_inflation.pdf

RE: Wi if booster

Whatever you buy, you may be disappointed. A booster can help you get connected to a weak signal but it can't increase the total bandwidth available. And it looks like you're more interested in bandwidth to stream video.

RE: Any Apple gurus?

Just a quick update to close the loop. I was finally able to get the answer to one of my security questions and the system let me in far enough to reset all my security questions. BTW, it would NOT allow me to use the same answer to all questions. I removed that unknown device that I originally got the email about and will probably just delete the account this weekend.

RE: Any Apple gurus?

I take it you checked the email address to make sure it was a legitimate address for Apple. If you can't access the account, due to the security questions, it makes me question the validity of the email completely. The validity of the email is NOT in question. I brought up the source view for the email and everything pointed to an Apple.com domain. After I reset my password and signed in, I saw that same device connected to my iCloud account. I also provided a screen shot of the email to Apple support. They didn't blink an eye. There just comes a point that you need to provide additional verification to accomplish some actions (like deleting the account). https://i.imgur.com/ib7AIzOl.png "border=0"

RE: Any Apple gurus?

Since you don't own any Apple stuff chances are good that you don't have any important information stored in the cloud. Just tell Apple to delete your account completely. I already tried that with Apple support this morning. They wouldn't delete it for me. They did provide links for me to delete it, which all failed due to the security questions. Catch 22.

RE: Any Apple gurus?

Did you click a link in the message you received? Are you sure it was a legit message? Do you remember storing any data on the cloud? What about just letting it die a slow death? If you ever need to have an iCloud account you can try starting a new one. No, I didn't follow any links in the email. So far, it looks 100% legit. Didn't store anything in iCloud. Probably just created the account to troubleshoot a problem for a user. If someone else is using it, or trying to use it, I'd rather delete it now.

Any Apple gurus?

Apparently, at some point in the distant past, I created an iCloud account, probably while working tech support. I've never owned an Apple product. This morning I get an email saying my account had been accessed from an iMac 27. I immediately went through the Forgot password and Reset password process from my PC. Chatted with Apple support for about 30 minutes and they couldn't help. The big problem now is that I can't do anything other than sign in because I can't remember the EXACT answers to my security questions. Ideally, I'd like to just delete the account but can't get past the security questions hurdle. Any fresh attempts will have to wait a day or two since I failed enough times to trigger a lockout. Any suggestions on how to do this? FYI, I was able to see the expiration date on the CC associated with the account was 2013 so that's not a major concern at the moment.

RE: Electrical question

By all means, do the right thing.....but I would suggest doing it via email so you have a trail. If you get an outrageous bill in the future it will show your actions and intent.

RE: LP or electric on a meter

I found this link several years ago. Can't vouch for the figures but it looked like someone did their homework. http://www.adventure.1tree.net/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=292&Itemid=285

RE: Adjusting self adjusting brakes

Haven't heard back from OP, whether talking truck or trailer. His truck is new enough that it will have 4 wheel disc so the answer is trailer. Not necessarily. My truck has 4 wheel disc brakes but the emergency brakes are drum and have the self adjusters on them.

RE: Adjusting self adjusting brakes

Maybe they put it on backwards at the factory. The only reason I'm suggesting this is because I just did some work on my wheels (replacing lugs) and while I was pounding in the lugs I accidentally clipped the emergency brakes. A spring and the self adjuster fell off. When I put those parts back on, the self adjuster was backwards and I had to reinstall the next day.

Trip planning tool

Beware of trusting the Good Sam online trip planning tool. I'm getting ready to travel again and plotted a route. I specifically input 14 ft as my height so it would not route me through a 13'6" rock tunnel that I used on my way in. Guess what? It routed me that way anyway.

RE: Insect prevention in black tank

Google 'drain flies' for lots of suggestions. In the interim, I would fill the toilet bowl about half full before flushing to limit the time the valve is open. You may not have to replace that seal. The last time this happened to me, I opted to replace also but could have gotten by with brushing the old, dried out plumber's grease from the original seal, applying new grease and reassembling.

RE: Calling RAM 3500 owners

Thanks for the input folks. Still waiting for the new lugs and nuts to arrive. Since the mechanic is just across the street, I'll give it a shot myself. My big concern was getting the drum/rotor combo off. If that's really not necessary, so much the better. If it is necessary and I can't get it off, I'll just throw the wheel back on and drive it across the street.
