RE: Ovenight in a Truck Stop

#1 my father was a truck driver and i had many driver friends #2 i'm 68 and i don't park at noon, and i can't believe to many Rv's stop before noon so they can spend the night in a truck stop #3 i prefer rest area's, and i almost always get surrounded by trucks, in the Rv parking lanes, even when there is open unmarked truck spacing at the end of the driveway, you want to idle your engine all night..go to flying J Courtesy works both ways, i do my best to stay out of truck stops at night, i even prefer to buy my Diesel fuel at NORMAL gas stations you may have had a problem in washington state, take it up with them and the truckers associations, not a rant on the RV forum

RE: NICARAGUA Which Windows 7 version?

new DVD and CD are blank new Hard drive, is Formated for the intended system, but contains no system data, it is empty except for the data that defines the way the data will be stored a HD with windows on it actually contains several partitions (sections) the primary C: drive and usually a system reset restore partition invisible to normal use, and only visible with special tool software and only active, when you choose the factory restore, which makes it BRAND NEW again not to be confused with "restore points" which are under user control

RE: Anyone have info on electric/motorized bikes?

Would adding a gas engine to a bike make it a motorcycle? in most places NOT until it is larger than 50cc thats why legal mopeds are 49cc a 30cc engine on a bicycle, is just a motorized bike most places it does not even qualify as a moped no legal restrictions most places new york requires a Moped license for 49cc engines even for ones with pedals

RE: Firearms in RV's

Sorry for almost having started a civil war. That was not my intention. As I mentioned 3 times already, I have no plans to bring a firearm in my MH, I was merely wondering what the laws are. as moderators we have too deal with the fall out from careless questions on sensitive subjects why ask an idle question on a sensitive subject , IF you have no interest in doing this on s subject like this, it might be perceived as trolling some see the need to be prepared, others do not and think the police will be there to protect them but it is always a HOT topic

No. Not variac Just plain ol normal adjustable bench power supply used to power equipment being tested OR worked on Those voltage and current dials are not mounted on the circuit board/chassis, the are mounted in the face plate, and wired to the circuit board, very similar to this mega watt mod

RE: Rogue MegaWatt 30Amp bulk charger.

I have to ask (except for the lack of a face plate mounting) How is this any different than a work bench power supply, with vernier knobs for voltage control, mounted in the face plate and "cabled" to the circuit board I really don't expect any kind of induction or feedback oscillation issues
MrWizard 08/29/15 11:07am Tech Issues

batteries fully charged? fridge off or on l.p. water heater off turn a/c on fan only for ten minutes then to cold start early in day when voltage is up and it's not do hot
