RE: Reddog1 "Wayne"

I lived just 10 minutes from Wayne's and got to spend a lot of time with him over the past few years. Wayne went out in style, doing the things he loved; working on his truck, Samurai and RC trucks as well as getting in some serious play time on his tractor. He was in great spirits through his illness right to the end. I never heard him complain once about his lot having it. Just that he needed some help getting things set up for his wife before his time came. I will miss him tremendously. Jerry

RE: Aquariums

I'd buy a kiddie hard plastic pool and when parked, set it out for the turtle. Cover with wire mesh if critters could be a problem or escape. Put the turtle in an ice chest while on the road so water won't splash all over. Maybe a hitch mount trunk box would hold 600 pounds if it's a good enough receiver hitch.

RE: Propane tank recertification

1 more observation. When you take your cylinders to gas station who also sells propane as side business - they never take a look at certifications. Done it 4 times in last year. Never. Except when they do. My tanks have been checked every place I've ever taken them including gas stations selling propane. Expired date, they ask me to move along as they do not cert. Which is how I discovered my local RV parts/repair shop sells propane cheaper than anyone else and certs for $5.

RE: Ford aluminum trucks

Some of these posts blowing right through sensible, going past stupid and into the dangerous territory. And some posters should come with a warning like a pack of cigarettes, because they are downright harmful. The difference between discussion and trolling is that in discussion you bring technical opinions and facts. (they can be wrong- no question) In trolling you make personal remarks. I do not ascribe to your definition of 'discussion'. Saying things that can put people in harm's way goes way beyond technical opinion and into harmful. Reader beware the opinion of anyone as fact when it comes to your well being, especially when it comes from those known to pontificate on subjects they have been proven wrong about.

RE: Propane tank recertification

Just about any of the local propane dealers will in my area. The local RV part house sells propane and recerts tanks for $5. Much cheaper than swapping out at Blue Rino. Oh, and if you do go the blue rino route, check the dates on those tanks too. Many are within months of expiring. Weed through and exchange for a more recent tank that has a longer period before needing it's next cert.

RE: Hwy 99 to Stockton instead of the 5

A lot of 99 has been repaved and added lanes in higher traffic areas. I think it's MUCH better then I5. Last drove it a year ago. Took 99 down and 5 back up Sacramento to Anaheim and back. Drove my 2006 Dodge 4x4 diesel with a Lance slideout camper and towed a tandem axle trailer hauling a tractor down, no trailer back.

RE: JUst how many GB are needed?

Xfinity/Comcast will tell you your use if you logon and check. Other internet providers might do that as well.

RE: The ticking time bomb under the hood

The site says they still work on filters for Powerstroke, so sounds like Dodge needs them more ;) Well, if 4 microns sounds good to you, then fine.

RE: The ticking time bomb under the hood

Based on that kit, I would think aftermarket filters would be a wise investment then. I installed a kit on my Dodge truck because the factory filters are just not effective enough to protect the injectors. Looks like this and costs $260. Includes everything including the pipe cutter. One is a water separator, the other 2 micron filter. I've installed 3 kits now, mine, my brother and my neighbor's trucks. About an hour job once you know how. http://www.dieselfuelfilterkits.com/03_12_cummins_fuel_filter_kit.html https://i.ytimg.com/vi/I2umztArJXg/hqdefault.jpg width=480 https://i.pinimg.com/originals/48/26/37/482637835c2fad151fce3e6de72c211d.jpg

RE: Kidde Fire Extinguisher recall

They replaced 2 for me. Last week I noticed both gauges state they are discharged. I tested and sure enough, no more pressure. I guess the propellant leaked out? Far as I'm concerned Kiddie is trash. I recommend everyone checks theirs every time they fill up with fuel. In-home, check every time you replace your smoke alarm batteries.

RE: California hwy 120 between 395 & 6

There's a tunnel on 120 where drops into Yosemite Valley heading West. From the valley to this tunnel has lots of twists, but also lots of turn-outs. The tunnel is an arch roof. Every time I go through it, I straddle the yellow line so as not to loose my AC off the roof as the arch is a lot less clearance on the sides than the center. Long as you got good brakes, it's not bad. ****EDIT**** Found this; Big Oak Flat Road Continuation of Highway 120 from the west into the park Maximum vehicle length: 45 feet for single vehicle. Height restrictions: tunnels, from Yosemite Valley: 10 feet 3 inches; into Yosemite Valley, 13 feet 8 inches (the height of the tunnel at the white fogline is higher and California-legal vehicles are able to drive through the tunnel while remaining in their lane). Seasons: Open all year (chains may be required in winter). Tips for Pulling a Trailer over Tioga Pass Highway 120 between Tioga Pass and its junction with US 395 is a steep, winding mountain road. The steepest portion of the road is an eight-mile section that ascends about 2,500 feet (from Lee Vining toward Tioga Pass). Portions of the road have a grade as steep as eight percent. Other considerations: 1. Adhere to the towing capacity of your vehicle (you might be able to tow a trailer that is heavier than what your vehicle is set up to tow on other roads, but it might not work if you're going up or down this grade); adjust your braking system if you can. 2. Know your driving skills and what you are capable of doing. 3. Many vehicles towing trailers make it up to Tioga Pass (slowly and patiently). However, you may not be able to keep up with other traffic--if you try to, your vehicle may overheat. So, don't try to drive the same speed as other cars that aren't towing vehicles; use the pullouts when you can to allow them to pass you. 4. If you do break down (engine overheating, brakes fail, etc.) be aware that you might be waiting several hours for help (especially if you come through later in the day when fewer people can help you). Have a plan if you break down.

RE: Quick Connect for Extra Batteries in truck bed?

I use quick connects used for attaching a winch to a vehicle, where the winch is removable. Amazon here; https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01KHQQY7E/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Impossible to reverse voltage due to design. https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/71dBj9Q%2BiWL._SL1500_.jpg width=640

RE: Maintaining air gap in new Atwood water heater

I've always heard the air gap in a water heater tank is what caused the valve to leak. Burp the valve and no more leak. At least, mine works that way. Once all air is purged from the tank, the valve no longer leaks. The only time it comes back is when I sanitize the system by draining and filling a couple times with chlorinated and plain water. Then I heat up the water, see it dribble, burp the air and let it cool down, then repeat. Second time; no leaks.

RE: Rock Guard To Protect Toad

BTW, I've found it worth the effort to fabricate front wheel flaps as well. The underside and sides of my RV stay a lot cleaner when running wet conditions, road construction and other than clean road surfaces.

RE: Rock Guard To Protect Toad

I don't have one and don't have any chips either on my toad. I suppose if you have a nice toad and the skirt is cheap, then I'd say it's worth it, but frankly, I don't really see the need.

RE: Short Beds w/out Sliding Hitch

I have a short bed GMC with a patriot slider. The dealer who installed it set as far back as it would go. The pin box will hit the tailgate when the hitch is slid back: I have since adjusted the hitch forward 3 inches, it will just clear the tailgate on level ground. I will have to lower the tailgate to use the slider. Gary This is why they sell those 5th wheel tail gates.

RE: A/C not working

I'd start with a volt meter and trace the power from the AC back to the panel to see if there's at least power.
