RE: Battery powered portable fuel transfer pump

I used to have one of those when I had a kerosene heater years ago. If I remember correctly, it worked great for a while and then bit the dust. But you're right. At the $10 price point, it pays for itself in a few uses. I recently bought one of those shaker siphons. I've only used it once but I was able to fill my garden tractor very easily. I like mine but don't use it too often. The biggest problem with them is that the hose comes PRE-KINKED ! There are a few places that sell them without a hose (eBay) so you can buy what you want at your local hardware ware store. I bought two 5' sections and a nylon splice. If the one is not long enough then add the splice and another 5', no clamps necessary ! Remember that with a siphon, the tank you are taking fuel FROM, needs to be higher the the tank you are sending the fuel TO ! When putting fuel in the car or boat, I place my 5 gallon fuel jug on a tall step stool or step ladder. are you talking about the same thing as the rest of us? hose?????? bumpy I believe he's referring to the Shaker Siphon I mentioned getting. He is correct. The hose does come Pre-Kinked.

RE: What is your best Potato Salad recipe

The best potato salad there is bar none is the potato salad that never goes in my mouth.

RE: How do I get on air tv

Did you push the button on the antenna booster? It's likely on your coax connection plate

RE: Heart attack question

Good info and advice here. This is a great reminder to get CPR trained and to have your family and coworkers do the same. CPR/AED and first-aid training are a great way for you to help others, but the only way for you yourself to get help is to encourage others to take the training and stay current with it. The training is quick and simple. Renew your training year after year when it expires (every two years?) to get up-to-date and also to relearn through repetition. I can't stress enough how important continued training is. I've been trained in CPR for 45 years and the procedure has changed several times over the years. There will also be a lot of stress, adrenalin and panic going on so the more practice a person has, the better chance it will be second nature to them if the need arises.

RE: Diesel vs Gas

There's also the performance issue. If traveling in the West or through mountains, a diesel will always out perform a gas engine. Depending on the size of the motorhome, getting in and out of gas stations could be an issue too with a gas engine. With a diesel, you fuel up where the big trucks do and avoid that problem. Yes you pay more up front for the unit but you get more when you sell it too. Lots to think about!

RE: New TT bargaining...

It will come with full LP Tanks and a battery. Forget about the hoses. They'll throw in a piece of junk hose and you'll throw it away and buy good hoses. I would try for the hitch. Even if you can't get them to throw it in, maybe you can get them to split the cost. If that's a hard NO, go for something less expensive like lynx levelers or a sewer hose support or an RVLock.

RE: Campgrounds around Cleveland Clinic OH

we went to a baseball game in Cleveland last year and stayed at the Streetsboro/Cleveland SE KOA. It's less than 15 minutes to the Cleveland Clinic. Not a bad campground and can accomodate big rigs.

RE: What kind of trailer plug is this?

Those would be if you want the camera for seeing behind the trailer, or seeing inside the trailer. All the other trailer views appear when you plug a trailer into the 7 pin harness. Do you have electric over hydraulic brakes? Have you plugged in a trailer harness? I have electric brakes on my 5th wheel and use the 7 pin plug

RE: What kind of trailer plug is this?

In the past when GM didn't have the 4 pin with the 7 pin they included a 7 to 4 pin adapater plug as a std accy. Good point. OP - Did you check the glove box, or in the under-seat storage? There might be a plastic bag with the adapter you need. Should be with the manual that also tells you how to buy the trailer camera package from GM. I don't know if aftermarket cameras are compatible. I don't think aftermarket cameras work with either. I've checked the glove box, under the back seat, in the back seat storage areas, and everywhere else I can think of. When I bought the truck, I received a grill cover for when it gets cold, Snow plow prep wiring, 2" reducing sleeve for the hitch, Owners manual, various other documents (Sirius/XM, Infotainment system, Getting to know your Duramax engine, Limited warranty) but no camera wiring or where to get it or the cameras. I found a lot of information on how great the system is online and demonstrations of the different camera views but I can't find anything on where to get the things needed to make it work.

RE: What kind of trailer plug is this?

Where do you buy the cameras and plug ins to use those camera ports for your RV? I received no information obviously because I didn't even know what they were!

RE: 2020 GM 2500HD Dead Weight Hitch Tongue only 500 lbs ?

Do 2020 GM's have hitch labels ? I just went out and looked at my truck. There isn't any kind of sticker on the hitch receiver at all. All I can tell you about it is it's a Class 5 hitch and has the 2 1/2" receiver and a 2" sleeve that comes with it. Failing any other labels, is there any information engraved on the hitch bar / ball (i.e. the part that slides into the receiver)? A couple of mine say "Do not exceed XXX max trailer weight or XX tongue weight". I didn't notice anything on the tube and I looked pretty closely.

What kind of trailer plug is this?

My new Silverado doesn't have the standard 4 pin plug. Instead, it has this type of plug above the 7 pin plug. I've never seen this before. Do I need some sort of adapter to tow a trailer that has a standard 4 pin flat plug? https://i.imgur.com/A2ql7dkl.jpg

RE: Strange sounds from the kitchen sink

I keep my gray tanks open when I'm on an extended stay someplace. I always make a "P" trap or a dip if you will in my sewer hose near the actual sewer connection. That way I know it stays filled with water preventing sewer gases from getting into my RV. Many RV parks have their sewer connection pipes a few inches above ground level which makes a "P" trap automatically.

RE: 2020 GM 2500HD Dead Weight Hitch Tongue only 500 lbs ?

That VIN decoder webpage really isn't vehicle specific even though you put in your VIN number. Many of the specs provided on that webpage show the same for all GM trucks. For instance, I have a 2020 2500HD Duramax Crew Cab standard box. When I use the decoder webpage with my VIN number it shows the same 500 pound rating but on the actual sticker it gives the vehicle specific numbers. This sticker is from my truck. https://i.imgur.com/TEee0cVl.jpg

RE: Use Verizon IPhone hotspot with Dish Hopper for On Demand?

Most people don't understand what "Unlimited" means in today's market. Years ago it meant that you bought a plan, you were locked in for two years, you had unlimited everything, No throttling, no caps, just 3G data speed period! Now it means you aren't locked in anymore unless paying monthly for the phone (a whole other discussion), you have unlimited full throttle high speed data ability up to a certain point and then you reach a cap and your connection is throttled down to a speed that makes it difficult to stream or do much of anything other than make calls and text or you're throttled during peak times and can't do much. Cell phone companies use the word "unlimited" deceptively and most people hear that word and think they are good to go. Use as much data as they want, for as long as they want, at any time that they want. Just pay this minimal monthly fee. There are 3rd party companies out there that will sell you an unlimited, unthrottled, uncapped monthly plan and they're legal, but as soon as the big carriers see what's happening, they shut things off so those plans come with some risk. The entire RV world wants really good internet at a fair price that's easy to obtain, works everywhere and is easy to get set up. I'm hoping once Starlink is available there won't be a need for all the nonsense we have to go through now in order to have decent internet on the road.

RE: Portable Gas Heaters

We have a 200 watt solar "suitcase" that works great and has never failed to recharge the four 6V deep cycle golf cart batteries we have. It's much safer than a portable propane heater too.
