RE: Got forced into MS 365

RE: Should I Buy The Dealer's Hitch

I'm buying a bumper pull trailer and the dealer is offering to install a weight distribution hitch for $1,000. ? $1,000 NO NO NO!!!! You can get a used Hensley Arrow or a used ProPride hitch for a few $ more. Search this forum for either and read the reviews. "a few $ more"? Really? I just did a search and it looks like the new ones run about $4,000. Yikes! I'm not poor, but I'm not made out of money, either. One quick search for a USED ARROW Link $1,800

RE: Tires rubbing on camper 2 inch clearance ?

I assume replacement springs are needed. If spending money I would go up some in rating. At same time flip the axles

RE: Move all files with .txt anywhere inside current folder

I found a free software package "File Fisher" that I think will work. Trying it now.

Move all files with .txt anywhere inside current folder

Windows 10 on laptop My data hard drive F: is a mess with more than 200 folders plus an unknown number of subfolders. I would like to move all files with .txt extension present anywhere inside the current folder such as "F:\2001" (even in subfolders) to the main F: "root" no folder. I can then review them and delete the ones I do not need. In the days of DOS I THINK there was a way. I have tried DOS "move" and "Xmove" commands with no joy. A software program that would do this would be welcome

Transfer rate between two USB 3.0 ports??

My HP EliteBook 8770w laptop has 2 USB 3.0 ports on the left side. I have a red WavLink dual bay external hard drive docking station connected to one of USB ports. I have single day external hard drive docking station connected to the other USB port. My task is to copy (not clone) about 1 TB of selected files from HD “A” to HD “B”. My question, would the transfer rate be faster if I put both the hard drives in the dual bay WavLink docking station or put one drive in the WavLink docking station and the other drive in the single bay hard drive docking station? In other words, on my laptop are the two USB ports independent each with 5Gbps a total of 10 Gbps or are they parallel ports off the same chip/bus with a total of 5Gbps? I understand that my hard drives transfer rate will be substantially less than the maximum transfer rate for the USB ports.

RE: Likely to regret

Assuming you are old enough to get the 1/2 price camping pass at all government parks COE, NP, NFS, and BLM you are going to be TOO BIG. Sell the truck for a "more conventional set up". Our Chev 2500 HD pulls the steep western mountains at 70 MPH. No problems. Why do you want a toy hauler? Boondocking is the best way to see the USA and you are too big.

RE: Two questions: fridge OOPS! and battery boost relay

The RV is now parked in its level parking spot. Can I safely test whether I fried the refrigerator by turning it on to run on propane for several days? Are there tests I can perform/components I can examine to determine whether I broke it? Test it what is the worst thing that can happen? IMO it should still work.

RE: towing hitch for new trailer

Get a Hensley Arrow or a Pro-Pride. Each cost a few $$. I purchased mine used on eBay. IMO it should be against the law to sell a TT without one of these hitches. ... :B .... :B. NO MORE TAIL SWAY. I once had a wheel come off my TT while driving 75 MPH and did not know it until a car passed me and wave me down to pull over. The Arrow probably saved my life. Search the posting to see other comments. I am 85 and not problem hooking up. A few tricks to learn. Most important is do NOT turn you steering wheel the last 5 feet when you back up to the hitch.

RE: Leaving camper setup and leveled

If your camper has a flat roof, I would not leave it level. A little tilt so water/snow would run off. If it has a curved roof leave it level.

RE: Poked a hole in the wall of my refrigerator. Is it toast?

Now it's not cooling adequately to keep my food from spoiling. ------ BTW, I didn't try to remove that wire that went through the wall, fearing I would make the hole much worse. Is it not cooling now because of the HOT weather? A small hole should not effect the cooling. If you have damaged something serious the gas AMMONIA would have leak and you would HAVE SMELLED it. Did you poke the hole at the same place as the wire? If so pull the wire out a little and see if the insulation is cut. Picture of the hole and wire!!!!! The big problem will be ice building up on the patch. A small amount of spray foam may work but be VERY careful and not get too much. You can trim the foam after it cures.

RE: 50-amp electrical cable plugs in, the black screw “ring”

It appears he just wants the ring and not the the cover. He does need to make sure of 30 or 50 amp. 50 Amp. I do not know how to replace the ring only. I will need the replace the complete cover. Is the ring REALY necessary? How many do not use (tighten) the ring?

50-amp electrical cable plugs in, the black screw “ring”

On my 5th wheel where the 50-amp electrical cable plugs in, the black screw “ring” connector that holds the cable in place has broken off. Is it possible to replace the ring only and not have to replace the whole connection? I am thinking about just ignoring the problem because it appears that the only function of the ring is to make sure that the cable is not disconnected. Your thoughts on the issue?

RE: Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injection

I had the 3 injections about a year ago. After the first injection about 50% cured. It took 2 more injections about 3 to 4 weeks apart to cure me 100%. Did have some leg pain, but could not tell if it was my old knee or the pitched nerve. So got a shot in the knee. Now all the leg and back pain is gone. GO FOR IT What do you have to lose.
