RE: Magnetek 3230 power converter problem

Some older converters had two outputs from the converter, one filtered and one unfiltered. My guess is that the filtered side has failed. Possible capacitor. My thoughts as well.

RE: I take back all the good stuff I've said about Les Schwabs!

All Discount does is tires, and IMHO they do it well. This caliper replacement policy is undoubtedly lawyer driven, and it lessens the need to have employees who can make an educated decision.

RE: F150 Tire time

I like Michelins (just put a set on my F250), but I had Goodyear Wranglers on my F150. Worked great in the snow. If the Michelins lasted 50K and they worked, why not go back to Michelins?

RE: RULER reading???

Assuming the tape measure is "normal", as in each line represents 1 16th. 5/8= 10/16 +2/16 (the two lines referenced) = 12/16 AKA 3/4"

RE: Nevada 447

Be very aware of your speed when traveling on reservation land. Tribal police have and use radar to write tickets.

RE: Storage Compartment Theft

While you may think I am being negative or unhelpful, one cannot reasonably expect to deter a determined thief with any sort of standard RV doors/ locks. While this time it might have been "fairly easily thwarted" homeless, wait until some hardcore tweekers show up. Based my experience, (I wrote 20+ estimates at one storage location) thieves talk, and once a storage lot is found that has weak security it gets hit again.

RE: Wells, NV to Bishop, CA

Unfortunately you got hit by our first real storm, and it was a windy mess. Travel should be good tomorrow. It's been a while since I have been down that route, typical 2 lane NV highway but the usual rules apply, just watch speeds near the small towns, buy fuel when you see it, limited cell service from Tonopah to Bishop.

RE: Can't figure out how to grease u-joints - '93 Ford E350

Company that made U joints probably isn't the same as who made the driveline yokes. As mentioned, you may need to rotate the driveline so there is some angle to the U joints, which will provide clearance to get the grease gun in.

RE: Any old Dodge mechanics online here

Wheels are different between single rear and dually, so front hubs will be different.

RE: Tension bar won't stay in place

Same thing happened to me years ago, BarneyS pretty much summed it up. Get some new pins.

RE: retained fumes in garage?

Two different toy haulers over 8 years, 6 different ATVs and never had fuel smell from any of them over thousands of miles.

RE: Short Beds w/out Sliding Hitch

Generally turning while on flat ground isn't a problem, what creates the problem is when you're backing into a spot that isn't level with the road, so when the TV twist one way, while the RV twist the other is when you run the greatest risk of contact. ^^This Many a truck owner with a busted window and dented cab did the safety check in the parking lot thing. What you cannot account for is one of the tires being lifted by uneven ground and the cap of the trailer tilting into the back of the truck. I'm not throwing shade at the whole idea of going without a slider... just pointing out the limitations of a test. Basically, even if you think you're in the clear you still must pay attention. Yep, what they said. This is exactly what happened to me.

RE: Hubodometer

You would think with all the tech they are putting in newer trucks they could log trailer mileage. My '17 F250 has that capability. If you have more than one trailer, it logs mileage info for each, you select what trailer you happen to be pulling that trip.

RE: 04 FS3000

From what I remember most of the frame issues were in the lightweight line. I had an FS 2600 and had zero issues with the frame. I had several friends with FS3000's and they did OK as well.

RE: Bedroom AC?

Yep, we have common ducting. When running only one at a time BR A/C is felt more in L/R than L/R A/C is felt in the BR.

RE: Travel Trailer vs. Motorhome (my situation)

While you do lose bed space with a 5W, even with the hitch, I still have room for an aux fuel tank / tool box, a 2nd spare & other stuff. The other advantage of a 5W-truck is once you unhook, you can find cheaper fuel, with a large MH getting into smaller fuel retailers can be difficult.

RE: Spinning lug nut.....how can this be possible?

Same thing happened to me. The sheet metal cover was spinning. I was lucky, this happened to be home & I have a large selection of sockets (metric/ SAE/ 6-12 point) I managed to drive a socket (took a couple of trys) over the whole mess that allowed me to get the lug loose. Now, getting the lug nut out of the socket was another story. And even after all that, it still looked pretty good. I replaced all the lugs on my 5th wheel with solid one piece lug nuts after that experience.

RE: How long to return to camping after open heart surgery

I haven't had heart surgery, but had a surprise surgery for an arterial clot in my leg. That kept me down for a bit. It can be hard to deal with what feels like a slow recovery, I dealt with that during chemo for chronic leukemia. My advice is look at your recovery like eating an elephant- one bite at a time. Set reasonable goals that you can accomplish so you can see your improvement. And you will see improvement.

RE: Purchased TT (undisclosed salvage title came in the mail)

All of you forget that insurance companies also insure for theft, so it is entirely possible that an insurance company can get a vehicle as a theft recovery with no damage. Just because an insurance company has possession doesn't mean it was "totaled".

RE: FDA lists brands of dog food linked to DCM

Good idea to get this info out there, as it doesn't seem to have made the news. Our vet told me about this a couple of months ago when we were discussing high protein levels that showed up in my elderly dog's blood test. End result was the premium food we had switched to was the cause. Went back to an "average" food and things returned to normal. What we need to remember is dogs are designed to be scavengers and eat everything they can catch / find, so unless your vet tells you your dog needs to be "grain free" or on something special, feed them normal food.
