RE: What!

I found it interesting that the petition on Change.org was started by CW.

RE: Leveling and turning on your refrigerator?

Are you concerned about pre-cooling it before loading? Many times we have loaded up our few needed items and food, drove to the storage unit fired up the fridge, and took off. Never died from doing it. I never turned it off when driving except to fuel. Long threads about that but I just felt better turning it off. Got a residential one now, same thing but cooling is faster.

RE: Aluminum Wheels

Make sure your wheel studs are long enough to handle the added thicnkness of the alloy wheel.

RE: Question about OTR semi-tractors....

Here is two articles that explain it far better than I can and the difference between the two locking diffs and a power divider lock. https://clinewood.com/2017/06/20/technical-highlight-differentials-differential-locks-work-commercial-trucks/ https://itstillruns.com/power-divider-semi-work-7604663.html The old worm drives pretty much had everything pulling at the same time.

RE: Bend, OR over to Lincoln City

Fastest will be Hwy 20 to 22 to 18. Or you can take Hwy 20 all way over to Newport and up, I will say if you are going at night I don't suggest that route. If you want to see some of the Oregon Coast I'd head to Eugene/Florence and up, but you'll add a hour or so to the trip. This way. Stop for overnight at Spirit Mt. Casino for decent food, we usually eat in the sports bar, and say hello to my wife's money. Good RV lot plenty security.

RE: Koni FSD where to get besides Shockwarehouse

The reviews from other forums are all over the place as far as service from Shockwharehouse. YMMV.

RE: Need suggestions....flooring!

Floor leveling compound is my first thought, you will need to feather it out and maybe sand it. Tent it off with plastic or spend the next year cleaning dust from the cracks a crevices. Sand it down with a belt sander, again feathering it out. Gonna be dusty. Tent off. Get some cheap stick down vinyl squares and use them to build up the low area. Floor leveling compound if not prefect.

RE: CA, OR Coast

Depending on where you want to go on the coast from Valley of the Rogue US 199 is ok, but the last 10 miles or get quite crocked and slow but totally doable. OR 42 is okay, OR 38 is good. OR 34, been years since I was on it it was a good logging road then, now I don't know. OR 126 is good US 20 is very good. OR 22/18 is good. US 26/OR6 is good. US 26 is very good. US 30 is very good. 101 the length of the coast has some windy spots a few tunnels and some narrow roadway in spots but nothing that will give you any problems. No need to crowed the center line on any of the tunnels or bridges. The only way you will hit the wall is if you jump the curb.

RE: CHF 2018 Thor, F53, Rear do I need Z brackets

Cheap Handling Fix Found on a competing RV website so you best do a search for it. Reference the above picture it is a DIY job moving the downlinks to the inter hole effectually shorting the sway bar to give better sway control.

RE: We are looking at combo washer dryer

We have the 2100XC also and like it. I wouldn't want to do extremely dirty work clothes in it, but have been pleasantly surprised on the stuff with medium/light soil. We have found that we take less clothes, depending on where we are going and when we will have hookups. It doubles for the dirty clothes hamper till we are ready to wash. We have found that if you wash only, then fluff the clothes after the finial spin they don't wrinkle as bad but generally just let it do its thing. When we bought our current rig, 2016 Bounder 34T, the DW was waling through and gave her blessing to the kitchen and bath, then opened the closet and saw the Splendie and exclaimed "Oh, I always wish for a washer/dryer." Never had mentioned it before. We are only out a few weeks at a time but wouldn't be without.

RE: Cutitng Fiberglass

Run some painters tape then cut through it. I will help reduce the possibility of chipping. Got clearance? No frame or any thing in way?

RE: Ford Focus problems?

I have a 2015 Focus that I tow and did have a similar problem. Every now and then I would go to start and nothing. Would turn the disconnect switch and it would start. Re checked my connections and tightened them all up and problem solved. Just before last service it tossed a CEL light. Had my dealer check it out when service. They found code, long forgotten, and said it was a generic code for unspecified (electrical?) issue. Said there was a voltage drop across my disconnect switch. As he went on he asked "Why do you have a disconnect switch? I told him it was because Ford requires it to flat tow. His reply made NO sense or logic. "Well, wait about two hours before disconnecting it. It is because the computer takes about two hours to shut its self down." I told them to show me that part in the manual or a service memo. I"m still waiting. Plus he couldn't say how much voltage drop was across the switch. I have the well known transmission problem that comes and goes, with the clutch pack and software up date. Again it is getting to the point of bugging me, getting close to bitching about it again. I never have changed or re-did the switch The service writer is new but has about 10 years Ford experience. It may have well been my last visit to the dealer and I have been using them since 2001. Plus he did some other stupid stuff that I figured out later. I thought about contacting the service manager but I figure this guy will be down the road soon enough.

RE: Internet Costs

I wrote these two post on a different form 9/27/15 If you have AT&T service in your area look on e-Bay for "AT&T unlimited sim card" or send me a PM and I'll send you the sellers information. The cost from him was around $35 and the AT$T monthly charge is $35 + tax. He sets up the account then you log into it and set your own information, plan and credit card. I bought a Netgear 815S hotspot, AT&T branded, and a Netgear antenna, from Amazon on the Warehouse Deals for about $100 total, both used. The DW was extremely hesitant about getting the sim and plan as I am sure it is in the gray legal area. We finally decided that if it got cut off the amount lost wouldn't break the piggy bank. I wrote this about 10/26/18 Used about 160 gigs for the month. We had some slowdowns but I felt it was more to weak signal. We could sorta test by hotspoting our iPhone's to our ATT account with about the same results. The crazy thing is even though there is a credit card on file at 2359:59 on the 30th day the connection dropped. I Hotspotted the phone, logged on to the ATT site and had to do the dance for the plan and security code for the CC. Had connection promptly. I said before that I felt the seller was a little misleading about the info. The $29.95 plan is now $35 including taxes. But I had read something about ATT upping all the unlimited plans by $5 so it wasn't a deal breaker. But five bucks is a Starbucks-almost! The Netgear 815S hot spot is simple to set up, pretty much P&P. I don't know if the external antenna Netgear 6000450 really does any good but both were used off of Amazon under $100 for both and $35 to the seller of the card so I'm not out a lot of cash. Just completed kicking the kids off my cell plan. Had a old ATT plan with 20 gig/month. Shouldn't need that much data now along with the streaming plan now. The DW is retired, gotta watch the outgo more closely. Am going to miss her phone reimbursement from the company though! As of right now we have been out 5 days and used about 80 gigs. Got the standard notice several days ago that I have reached the 22 gigs limit and might be prioritized due to tower congestion. Everything running full bore. Got a notice the other day that AT&T is raising rate another $5/month.

RE: winterizing with compressed air

Look for the shut off valve under the closest sink. FW in their great quality control hid mine behind the rear panel under the sink. Then the dealer ran a staple through the line while chasing an electrical short.

RE: Oregon coast advice

All good roads. 58 has a 6 mile 6% uphill going east but the downgrade isn't much. Collier State Park for a day trip to Crater Lake. https://oregonstateparks.org/index.cfm?do=parkPage.dsp_parkPage&parkId=165 And go to the logging museum across the street if your interested in old iron. From Newport you can also take US20 east to I-5. It is also a fine road. Four small pulls but they are short and under 900' in elevation. In theroy you can take your MH to Crater Lake but I wouldn't advise it. There is several buses that do tours around the lake and they make several stops, or you can drive your own.

RE: Hellwig or Roadmaster

When I did them my 2007 E-450 the Hellwig was a lot cheaper for the same size bar and was no drill for either end. sdtrucksprings.com was the cheapest then. Happy with their service. Did both ends in an afternoon including a long lunch break. Also I ran into a now long forgotten problem when doing the front. I finally gave up and called Hellwig. Talked for a few moments and as he started talking the light started to shine in the brain cavity. Had a good laugh at my expense.

RE: Rhinoflex... Not what it used to be

Best hose, period. At $7 a foot, it better be.... I got a $5 credit, maybe I'll buy a short section.

RE: Where's the fly?

LOL In my younger days I would get up about around 0330 most mornings. Usually laid out pants and shirt night before. Would turn on the hall light to see to dress and grab a pair of underwear from the drawer. At the first pee stop I'm fumbling around and finally got Junior out to do the duty. Fought the fly all day. Got to my layover point and headed to shower. Discovered had DW panties on. Glad I didn't have to go to the hospital unconscious.
