RE: F150 vs. stupidity

I join the "fake" club. The tan-colored trim along the bottom of the truck does not make a straight line at the point just behind the back door where the "bend" is supposed to occur. The rear part of the trim is higher than the front part. It's been Photoshopped.

RE: why only one page of posts?

What harm would it do to keep a "new" post for, say, three days even if it is not active. I, for one, do not spend the day looking at a smart phone 24/7, and sometimes it takes a day or two before I can read a post.

RE: Auxillary Fuel Tank ?

If Transferflow does not make an in-bed auxiliary gasoline tank (that pumps directly into the truck's main tank), they do make in-bed refueling tanks. Not as convenient as an auxiliary tank, but they give you the same additional range.

RE: Hobbies in the off season?

Just finished this model of the USS Constitution. I began the project at the start of 2018. During a fall 2018 RV trip, I made a stop in Boston to visit the actual ship to check on a few details. https://i.imgur.com/fLimjGMl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/eEpPqWAl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/cT84IUHl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/vXfs543l.jpg https://i.imgur.com/Elh7wRLl.jpg

RE: Worst RV Brand List

Just a collection of uninformed opinions, so the result cannot be taken seriously. Why, we might as well hold elections the same way. :B

RE: It is no wonder

I was not trying to be a smart-ass but I'm a retired math teacher, and an uncontrollable urge to correct homework papers just kicked in.

RE: It is no wonder

The derivative 28 cos(7x- pi/2) @ x-0 = 28 cos( -pi/2), which is 28 cos(-90 degrees) = 0.

RE: Washington State

If you like to sample good wine then spend a day or two for tasting in eastern Washington, particularly the Kennewick-Pasco area. There are dozens of small wineries to choose from, and some of the cabernet sauvignons are outstanding.

RE: Gas station guide

Janss: That pop-up menu next to the city window shows only regular, mid-grade, and premium on my browser. I am using a Mac laptop. Verrry strange. Roy Wait a minute!! Now I see it! The pop-up menu has a scroll bar. I have to scroll down to see "diesel". The light finally dawns. Roy

RE: RV Park near Noesho River OK

We like Keystone State Park, about 15 miles west of Tulsa. It's just off US 412, a good four-lane expressway, so you are 15 minutes from downtown. There is an commercial RV park in town at I-244 & Mingo, but I don't recommend it (having stayed there twice) unless you really need to be in the city.

Matt_Colie: I looked for "filters" but, sorry, I do not see it. I'm using Safari browser on an Apple ibook. Roy

RE: Gas station guide

I just looked at Gas Buddy, and I cannot find diesel fuel anymore. The only fuel options were for gasoline. I don't know when that changed. (Google can find the gas stations, but I am interested in prices.) Is there any alternative to Gas Buddy for finding up-to-date diesel prices? (Added at 10:47am): I looked at gaspricewatch.com, but it was useless for diesel.

Furnace blower stops briefly then comes back on.

Atwood Furnace in 2008 fifth wheel: Blower motor stops for two or three seconds then starts again. I don't think that the furnace flames out (I don't hear a 'click'), but I'm not 100% on that. This happens every few minutes. My worry is that the blower will stop and not start again.

RE: Will any portable compressor handle 95 psi?

Note from the OP: The CFM 8-gallon 125 psi compressor is an exact duplicate of what I am now using: a Husky 8-gallon 125 psi compressor purchased at Home Depot. Obviously both are made by the same company.

Will any portable compressor handle 95 psi?

My tires need 95 psi cold pressure. Is there any portable compressor that can handle that pressure in a amount of reasonable time.? My compressor is ok for 80 psi, but it slows to a crawl when the tire pressure reaches about 85. (I have a fifth-wheel, but I am posting in class A forum because class A owners have to deal with the problem of higher pressure.)

RE: Anybody else have trouble packing for camping

I really like DuchmenSport's comments. I, too, enjoy the adventure of every trip. Even the problems are just a part of it. We are taking the fifth-wheel to a state park for Thanksgiving and the weekend. Yesterday, I checked the trailer (always a good idea to do that several days in advance) and discovered that the front jacks would not operate and one tire had a slow leak. A bit of a worry at first, but hey, I discovered that I could operate the front jacks manually (something I had read about now and then on this forum), and the tire store where I had purchased the tires found a small nail and fixed the tire for no charge. Today, my wife and I are going over the menus and starting to do some of the cooking -- all part of the adventure.

RE: Why no continuous furnace fan option?

To address your concern about pipes freezing in the basement, why not get an external thermometer to put in your basement. Then you can keep tabs on how the basement temperature compares with the temperature outside. If there really is a danger of freezing in the basement, you could allways use an (old style) light bulb near the pipes.

RE: Using the jack without the battery

Are you talking about front jacks in a fifth wheel? leveling jacks? Converters vary in their power output (30 amp., 55 amp., etc.) and that may not be enough to power a jack motor.

RE: Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is November 28. You can have the Tofu this week and the turkey next week.

RE: The future cost of RV stay

Must be winter time...... #bored You can say that again. I just came in from raking leaves, and that may turn out to be the high point of the day.
