RE: Driver’s license for DPs

NC General Statute 20-37.16. (e) The requirements for a commercial drivers license do not apply to vehicles used for personal use such as recreational vehicles.

RE: Driver’s license for DPs

In NC anything over 26001 lbs required a B CDL. All I did was download the handbook for CDL and studied it one night. Then took the written test. I also had to drive my dp with the examiner with me. Piece of cake. Since switching back to a fiver I plan to keep the B license now that I have it. Not if it is a non-commercial motorhome. Check with DMV or NC General statutes.

RE: Back in the dark ages !

More wires give more surfaces for current to travel on. Finer the strands the greater number of surfaces. Considering the same size of wires.

RE: 25% better mpg from current diesels? Too good to be true?

I am not concerned with how far I can go on a gallon of fuel. My concern is how much it cost to get me there.

RE: In bed fuel transfer tank question

I have a Marine poly tank that is DOT certified for gas or diesel. I did a slight modification to my tool box and it fits perfectly in half of the box and is out of sight and locked. It holds 27 gallomns. I expect one that fit the whole tool box would hold 50-60 gallons. Combined with the truck tank I can carry 65 gallons.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

It appears the critics have silenced another interesting topic. Merry Christmas to all.

RE: Truck starts on its own

Talked to my service writer, he said there is no way to disable auto start on a 2019, said that feature was started 2022. Said probably a wifi signal close to my house

RE: Truck starts on its own

Probably neighbors have remote start for their vehicles. Like house keys, one key fits many houses....Many devises use the same frequency.

RE: Truck starts on its own

There have been cases where TV remotes opened garage doors.

RE: Adhesive for insulation foam board

Use a temporary sheet of plywood inside ubder the ceiling supported by temporary bracing down to floor. This will give support as you finish work on roof. Once roof is replaced use weights on top pressing it down to ceiling inside. This will be like clamping the ceiling and roof together. Best to have all material ready and assembled before any glue begins to cure. Loctite PL3 should work for all your needs. Read the instructions on the tube. Using a chaulk gun and an old brush will insure a 100% coverage of glue to all the surfaces.

RE: Battery Bank Location

In our class A I built 2 double decker battery trays with one sitting on each inside of the grille. The lower batteries slide out for service and the top batteries are serviced from the top. The original batteries I installed were each 12V 125ah but the replacement ones are 115ah. They have lasted for several years and stay cool. With Kyocera Solar Panels and a Magnum Energy 2,000 Watt Inverter we operate most all appliances in the coach.

RE: Shopping new tires - is my shop confused or am I?

High mileage tires have a harder rubber compound than low mileage tires. That is why tires have 40,000 miles or 80,000 miles ratings.

RE: Stops Catalytic Converter thefts! (inexpensive method)

The cables add about another 30-60 seconds to removing the cat. It is surprising what one can do in a second who is trained in their profession. LSU football team made a touchdown in 1 second. Tools needed: Battery powered high speed cut-off tool. With seemingly an endless supply of easy targets, my hope is that a thief will take one look and move on to another vehicle. They likely crawl underneath a vehicle with just a cordless sawsall in hand as that will do the trick 99% of the time. If they have to fetch another tool from their vehicle (high speed cut-off tool) it adds time. Or, perhaps the cables can be cut with their sawsall in hand. Regardless, it turns their job of cutting just 2 simple and sturdy access spots (right in front of and right behind the cat) into cutting those plus 6-7 more spots (some which require getting above the cat which would be a challenge especially with something as big as a sawsall...I could hardly reach my arm up there to install the cable). All this while a 115db alarm is blasting drawing attention to them. Yes, given enough time and determination a thief can steal anything. What I have done for less than $100 probably makes it 5x harder for them to remove, 10x more likely they will get caught or scared off by the alarm, and 20x more likely they will simply move on to find an easier target (...at least this is my hope). Gives me more piece of mind also (which has value). I recently had my RV (prior to this install) parked in front of my home overnight. I couldn't help but worry a little through the night that it (the CC) might not be there in the morning. Now, I'm no longer worried. If I have any worthwhile incidents (theft, attempted but unsuccessful theft, etc) I'll certainly report back. Let me know if any of you decide to protect you catalytic converter this way. I hope it never happens, but if I ever start up my RV and hear "the rumble" from the exhaust and then I look underneath to see the main pipe(s) have been cut but the cabled cat is still hanging there because the thief gave up or got scared away, I'll be smiling and back on the road quickly. Good luck all! Chris All that needs to be cut are the 4 cables wrapped around the conveter and it will fall right out when the pipe is cut. Four (4) cable cuts on the bottom of converter. Zip, Zip, Zip, Zip and it is gone.

RE: oil change

An adjustable wrench, oil filter wrench, plastic dish pan, Funnel, plastic gas can, 4x8 tarp, and disposal rags are the needed tools. Buy oil at Advance auto store and they have tanks for the old used oil. Ask them where it is possible to change the oil. Spread the tarp under the motorhome. Slide under with the dish pan and oil filter wrench, adjustable wrench, oil filter and disposal rag. Drain oil and change filters. Slide out with old oil, filter and tools. Using funnel pour old oil into plastic gas can and clean dish pan. Using funnel fill engine with new oil. Remove tarp from under motorhome. Clean all tools and store. It's a ten to fifteen minute job. Deliver old oil to Advance auto parts store and pour into their disposal tank. Thank them. :)

Probably got his fill of the constant criticism from the rocket crew about how he was not pleasing them with his postings.
