RE: Social Security disability

Social Security at 62, for reasons unrelated to health, taking a 25 percent reduction in benefits for filing four years before full retirement age (currently 66 but gradually rising to 67 over the next several years). Six months later, you are diagnosed with kidney disease. You can file for SSDI, and if the claim is approved, you will get a higher benefit, backdated to when you applied for disability. (You will still not get your full retirement benefit, but the “reduction factor” for early retirement will shrink from four years to just the period when you were only eligible for retirement benefits.) Full Retirement (65-67).....Disability amount is same as full retirement amount so you remain on SS vs Disability

RE: Revenge is mine, says the buffalo herd...

We had taken a back road to circumvient some of the tourist traffic in Custer National Park when we saw a Mother & Calf buffalo so we stopped along side the road for a photo op. Soon we were surrounded by other Mom's/Babies that stood there facing us....front/rear/both sides and there were NOT moving along. Just standing there snorting. held us hostage for about 20 minutes when one Mom turned and walked away....then the rest followed suit. For a time I thought I was going to have to explain HOW the large dent in truck occurred But....they let us go unscathed.

RE: Atwood Water Heater Relay - Stuck Closed Again

To answer some of the questions, I am using he Zettler AZ2280-1A-12D as sold by Atwwod. Due to the tight space I have to crawl into, I don't think that I will be able to make too many measurements on the element. I will give that a shot though and see what I can do. Thanks and keep the questions coming. I would like to get to the root of this. Terry Might want to try the Song Chuan Relay (does same thing as Zettler) AC terminals are on opposite sides vs next to each other. Might not generate as much heat as Zettler (Suburban uses that relay in their DEL Models ---DC to trigger AC to element)

RE: Atwood Water Heater Relay - Stuck Closed Again

To confirm the diagnosis, I would pull the relay and then ohm the contacts to verify that the Contacts are really stuck. Jerry Parr Relay uses DC to trigger AC to element AC can NOT get to element unless Relay is closed OP stated...... W/O DC ON the AC is still getting to the element. Hence....relay is closed

RE: Norcold fridge not cooling

If you can change temp settings then you have DC to fridge What temp is freezer holding? Is fridge in a slide out? Are the external fans operating? Has any insulation fallen down blocking draft (airflow)? Is RV level? ANY FAULT CODES? Which MODEL is this Norcold? 1200 or 2118 ???

RE: Keeping fridge cool in high 90s temps

Few questions... *are the INTERNAL Fans operating (1/freezer & 1/food compartment) DC power from P4 2 pin connector (pin 1) far bottom right on circuit board *are the EXTERNAL FANS running (P1 10 pin connector -- pin 5) DC goes to t-stat then to the Fans Suggestion: Unplug thermistor leads (temp sensor on 2nd fin in food comaprtment) and let fridge run W/O temp control (set tp MAX temp setting ---then if food comaprtment gets to cold you can lower the temp setting ----operates on Backup Operating Suystem which is 'timed base' vs temp based
