RE: Need to add a 110v electrical outlet

I would be very concerned that the old work boxes would be too deep to fit in the walls. And since the OP said he wants to run an electric blanket a USB port isn't going to help.

RE: replacing rubber roof with alum

Many moons ago I had a '71 Tioga. Leaks got to be a problem, mostly around front window and cabover area. Sold it to a co-worker for a song, who was a much better mechanic than me. At the time we both worked at a trucking company and he bought roll sheet aluminum that they used for trailer roof replacement. He took out front window and ran the sheet under the cabover to the top of rear window. Lots of curves to go around. If I remember right he would snip the edge to make "tabs" and work it around the radius. After replacing the damaged wood, etc. he had a good looking, solid, watertight roof.

RE: Beware "Reserve America"

Never had a problem with RA. Might look into using a virtual credit card if your bank card offers them.

RE: What mattress

We really like the 8" one we got at http://www.mattressinsider.com I was surprised when I got a phone call the next day confirming our order. DW is liking it better than the one in the S&B. Out for 1-2 months at time.

RE: What to do when RV has been idle for more than a year

Would agree - 12 months is really not that long - Fuel treat is critical IMHO,- but everything else should be fine. I once bought a couple of 1961 B-61 Mack's - when they parked them they had a load of topsoil in the dump bed - we had to use a chainsaw to cut down the 6" tree growing in the back - added batteries, and air to the tires - drained fuel and started it up and drove it to the job - Had been parked for over 10 years, sold it 10 years later never missed a day. While it may have been better to run it, it will likely not be an issue. BOL, Absolutely. There is not an iota of difference between a B model Mack and an Allegro.

RE: CCW Conumdrum

So why is this question in this section. Are class A owners special opposed to other RV operators?

RE: Seven Feathers Casino Canyonville dry camping?

There is also a small County campground maybe 3/8 mile north of the casino. http://www.co.douglas.or.us/parks/view_park.asp?id=44&features=&cnt=

RE: Anyone use a First alert 10 year CO detector ?

Well I'll be..My research turned up the same as IAMICHABOD. I never was aware that the CO detectors should be replaced every 7-10 years till mine in the MH started chirping several months ago. Stuck a new battery in it then it started again the other day. Then I see the notice "replace after xyz." Did some reading and the light dawned in the dark continent. Dang, maybe should replace my who knows how old it is one in the S&B too. From what I have read it is now recommended that smoke detectors be on the same replacement schedule.

RE: I HATE winter!

EDIT. MISSED THE FIRST FEW DAYS DURING THE COPY/PASTE December 8: 6:00 PM. It started to snow. The first snow of the season and the wife and I sat for hours by the window watching the huge soft flakes drift down from heaven. It looked like a Grandma Moses print. So romantic, we felt like newlyweds again. I love snow! December 9: We woke to a beautiful blanket of crystal-white snow covering every inch of the landscape. What a fantastic sight! Can there be a more lovely place in the whole world? Moving here was the best idea I've ever had. Shoveled for the first time in years and felt like a boy again. I did both our driveway and the sidewalks. This afternoon the snow plow came along and covered up the sidewalks and closed in the driveway, so I got to shovel again. What a perfect life. December 12: The sun has melted all our lovely snow. Such a disappointment. My neighbor tells me not to worry; we'll definitely have a white Christmas. No snow on Christmas would be awful! Bob says we'll have so much by the end of winter that I'll never want to see snow again. I don't think that's possible. Bob is such a nice man. I'm glad he's our neighbor. December 14: Snow, lovely snow! We had 8" last night. The temperature dropped to -20. The cold makes everything sparkle so. The wind took my breath away, but I warmed up by shoveling the driveway and sidewalks. This is the life! The snowplow came back this afternoon and buried everything again. I didn't realize I would have to do quite this much shoveling, but I'll certainly get back in shape this way. I wish I wouldn't huff and puff so. December 15: 20 inches forecast. Sold my van and bought a 4x4 Explorer. Bought snow tires for the wife's car and two extra shovels. Stocked the freezer. The wife wants a wood stove in case the electricity goes out. I think that's silly. We aren't in Alaska, after all. December 16: Ice storm this morning. Fell on my butt on the ice in the driveway putting down salt. Hurt like heck. The wife laughed for an hour, which I think was very cruel. December 17: Still way below freezing. Roads are too icy to go anywhere. Electricity was off for five hours. I had to pile the blankets on to stay warm. Nothing to do but stare at the wife and try not to irritate her. Guess I should've bought a wood stove, but I won't admit it to her. I hate it when she's right. I can't believe I'm freezing to death in my own living room. December 20: Electricity's back on, but we had another 14" of the stuff last night. More shoveling. Took all day. Snowplow came by twice. Tried to find a neighbor kid to shovel, but they said they're too busy playing hockey. I think they're lying. Called the only hardware store around to see about buying a snow blower and they're out. Might have another shipment in March. I think they're lying. Bob says I have to shovel or the city will have it done and bill me. I think he's lying. December 22: Bob was right about a white Christmas because 13 more inches of the white stuff fell today, and it's so cold it probably won't melt till August. Took me 45 minutes to get all dressed up to go out to shovel and then I had to pee. By the time I got undressed, peed, and dressed again, I was too tired to shovel. Tried to hire Bob, who has a plow on his truck for the rest of the winter, but he says he's too busy. I think he's is lying. December 23: Only 2" of snow today. And it warmed up to 0. The wife wanted me to decorate the front of the house this morning. What is she ... nuts??? Why didn't she tell me to do that a month ago? She says she did, but I think she's lying. December 24: Snow packed so hard by snowplow, I broke the shovel. Thought I was having a heart attack. If I ever catch that guy who drives that snowplow, I'll drag him through the snow by his hair. I know he hides around the corner and waits for me to finish shoveling and then he comes down the street at a 100 miles an hour and throws snow all over where I've just been! Tonight the wife wanted me to sing Christmas carols with her and open our presents, but I was busy watching for the snowplow. December 25: Merry Christmas. 20 more inches of the slop tonight. Snowed in. The idea of shoveling makes my blood boil. I hate the snow! Then the snowplow driver came by asking for a donation and I hit him over the head with my shovel. The wife says I have a bad attitude. I think she's an idiot. If I have to watch "It's a Wonderful Life" one more time, I'm going to kill her. December 26: Still snowed in. Why did I ever move here? It was all HER idea. She's really getting on my nerves. December 27: Temperature dropped to -30 and the pipes froze. December 28: Warmed up to above -20. Still snowed in. SHE is driving me crazy!!! December 29: 10 more inches. Bob says I have to shovel the roof or it could cave in. That's the silliest thing I ever heard. How dumb does he think I am? December 30: Roof caved in. The snow plow driver is suing me for a million dollars for the bump on his head. The wife went home to her mother. Another 9" predicted. December 31: Set fire to what's left of the house. No more shoveling. January 8: I feel so good. I just love those little white pills they keep giving me. Why am I tied to the bed? http://www.tickld.com/x/tckld/best-diary-entry-ever

RE: Help a non-electrician out here!

The first thing I would do is get a bushing on the flex before it rubs the insulation off the wires and causes more trouble.

RE: LED Tail/signal light bulbs

Just a reminder that amber stop/tail lights are illegal. Amber lights are legal for turn signals, and in my opinion should be mandatory.

RE: How many pounds is 6 tons?

44+ years in a truck and have done some stupid things, but never did anything nearly as stupid as that. Report that I saw said she also had a 17 year old cousin with her. It her carrier didn't give her permission that is a Federal charge also. Their was so much stupidity in all of this it is baffling. She must have got her license out of a box of Cracker Jacks.

RE: Recommendation For BlueTooth Headset

Blue Parrot and Blue Tiger are, for my money, the best noise canceling and provide the best voice clarity on the market. Both are tough and will take lot of abuse but they don't last forever. The only gripe I have with both is their "lifetime" warranty. When one dies and you get a RMA they ship you a rebuilt one, for around $50-60. For the same money you can buy a rebuilt on the retail market or eBay. Both have excellent customer service. For the casual user I don't think they are worth it unless you want a boom mike.

RE: Car dolly

I have seen way too many dolly lights not working. They are easily hidden by the towed, get the **** bounced out of them due to the fender mount, fenders and light damaged by turning too sharp, wires come disconnected and corroded. I feel that the further to the rear the light are the better the safety. I hate coming up on someone then guessing what their intention is only to find out the signal was blinking or the brake lights on but blocked from my view. I use a dolly and the time I took to rig my lights was minor and well worth the safety. My only wish is that I would have spent the money for a set of LED magnetic mounts. But it is legal.

RE: Suburban F-35 furnace squeal....

Like it been said couple of screws in front/side then it pulls out. Disconnect the paper thin ductwork But plan that you are going to punch a hole in it so have a plan "B." The hardest part is that the six or so wires likely aren't long enough to get the unit out and their won't be a connector on them. I cut mine and lengthened them using a butt connector then used spade connectors to join them just in case I needed to redo my handy work. The worst part was laying on the beer belly trying not to roll away and finding out my arms are two inches too short.
