RE: Dangerous Pranks

If you push on the door, the grab handle will open. Try it with a partner you trust. After reading some of the previously mentioned posts, I tried this on my TT. It does, in fact, open as Dave said.

RE: Storms and Tornados

The best weather app I have found is “Zoom weather”, cost five dollars and well worth it... picture below. Paid for itself when I was able to shoot the gap between two huge thunderstorms in Nebraska one evening...slight rain for 30 seconds. When you click on the box it expands and gives you the speed and intensity of the thunderstorms cell...2nd picture. The underlying map is as good as any Google map and I use it as a moving navigation tool. This looks interesting. Is this for Apple only?

RE: TPO roof understanding help.

I called Alpha (the manufacturer of my TPO material) when I got my current camper in 2011 because I had seen so much conflicting information in various forums. They said to just wash the roof with Murphy's Oil Soap once or twice per year. They said the soap leaves a little oil behind which lubricates the TPO and keeps it supple. It still looks fine.

RE: Using RV generator as backup for house?

I have a 9,000 watt continuous (12,000 start) and it won't run my heat pump, so I just plug in a couple of portable heaters. If you run extension cords that would be easy enough. I understand your desire to not run cords.

RE: ..Looking for a new air compressor for the MH tires etc..

If you have Dewalt battery operated tools and already have the batteries and charger, you might want to look at Dewalt's portable compressor- Dewalt Inflator It can run on its battery, the included 12 volt cord, or an optional 120 volt cord. I've used mine to inflate to 80 psi. It's not fast, but not terribly slow either, and with the battery, you don't have to drag out cords.

RE: How to improve ride on my F250Silvarado Cummings DuraStroke?

Just get rid of the whole package... put DW on a diet, and get a 2021 Powummins.. Problem solved. Or was that the new PowerMax :h Put her on 2 diets...she won't get enough food on one.

RE: Drill Holster (tip)

A built in place for the charger would be more useful as I don't have an outlet in the underbelly. When I get around to it, I'm going to fish an extension cord down there so I can leave the battery connected and charging. Our water heater is in one side of the pass through storage. It had a single receptacle for the heater, but I replaced it with a duplex and use the other for a drill battery charger.

RE: Diluted RV Antifreeze

Just bring along 2-3 extra gallons of rv antifreeze and use that to flush until you get south far enough.

RE: Can you retreat gas with stabil to extend protection?

We usually spend the summers in Michigan and upon returning to Florida in the fall I fill the tank up (75 gallons) and treat the gas with stabil and it is good until the late Spring when it is time to travel. This year due the pandemic we cancelled our plans to travel North and I am concerned that the gas is reaching the 12 month protection limit stated on the bottle and would like to know if there is any proven ways to safely extend the fuel protection for another 12 months? Thanks From the Stabil FAQ: I HAVE SOME GAS IN A TANK THAT HAS BEEN THERE MORE THAN 2 MONTHS. WILL STA-BIL® FUEL STABILIZER MAKE THIS OLD GAS LIKE NEW? No, STA-BIL®Fuel Stabilizer will not restore or improve old gasoline. It will, however, stop it from degrading further. The best thing to do is treat the fuel with STA-BIL® brand as soon as you buy it. Depending on the quality, type and source of the gasoline, as well as storage conditions, doubling the dosage rate of STA-BIL® brand could prolong this storage time to up to 2 years. However, any gasoline stored for more than 12 months will tend to lose volatility (ignitability), which could lead to hard starting or no start conditions after this long storage period. NO additive, STA-BIL® brand included, will prevent volatility loss in fuel. To reduce fuel volatility loss during storage, we recommend filling your tank at least 95% full with fresh fuel and STA-BIL® brand, and store in cool conditions away from direct sunlight if possible.

RE: Corn, Corn and more Corrn

... Only thing is how can I get half dozen kids to make it Eden. Anybody read any books on how to get your wife to let you have a mistress, and keep the wife happy. No I'm dreaming. Never would violate what my wife an I have. Maybe a fertility doctor. Any body thin it nuts to have kids at 72? I love to give homemade gifts. Which one of my kids do you want? ;)

RE: I got my new gas light.

With a large Amish population in Holmes County, Ohio, Lehman's Hardware caters to the "non-electric" buyer. They have a selection of gas lights and parts. Gas Lights

RE: Curt Betterweigh

Did you ever do the CAT weigh/Curt comparison? The Betterweigh sounds interesting if it really works.

RE: Propane Tanks Direction

My cylinders face forward, but the cover comes off hard as I have added batteries and the battery boxes come too close to the propane cover. I like to check which cylinder is being used without having to take the cover off, so I keep a small camping mirror in the front pass through so I can see the regulator through the top lid. Might work for back facing cylinders, too. https://i.imgur.com/MIN4toJl.jpg

RE: Fairbank AK -- Northern Lights ????

I can't speak as to aurora activity in December, but I agree that Sept is a good month. We saw the lights 3 nights out of 5 we were there last Sept. https://i.imgur.com/WYIBGGcl.jpg

I also have the TST 507 system with color monitor. I just had a problem with the monitor going blank and not able to turn on. Long story short- do not leave the color monitor plugged in to power all the time. Just charge it as needed and it will last 5-7 days on a charge. Leaving it plugged in is detrimental to the batteries. Mine is on the way back from TST after being repaired. The manual states, "Do not keep a fully charged display plugged in constantly." but I missed that.

RE: Leaving potable antifreeze in the system

Kenny, do you have a part number for the compressor to city water hose? I checked Home Depot's website and cannot find that. Thanks. I'm sorry but I don't. I bought it 10 years ago to winterize a small motel with only about 10 rooms. Here's several different ones from Amazon. air fitting adapters for RV Thanks. I should have looked on Amazon, but wasn't sure what to call them. I have the small plastic adapter, but have been concerned that the air hose pulling downward might break the fitting on the camper. This seems like a better arrangement.
