RE: TV tire life

I had 7 year old Michelins on my truck with only 15,000 miles. Parked in garage at all times when not in use. I had a blowout on I-40 just east of Barstow, CA that did $3500 damage to my rear quarter panel. Not an experience I want to have again. Discount Tire will not fix a tire over 7 years old if it has a nail in it so take that as a guide. I would not go over 7 years without replacing.

RE: Metal carport RV shelter

I have a 50'x12" wide. I have had to raise the roof 3 times for different rv's. Go high the first time and be done with it. If next rv is higher I'm scrapping the whole thing and starting over. Raising these things is neither safe nor fun.

RE: Which of these 3 battery brands would you choose?

Trojan are usually flooded unless you get the "Motive" brand. T105 Deka (EastPennMfg. are great. They make the Energizer brand that Sams Club is known for. Sams also sells the Energizer agm

RE: Starting Over - Heart Attack

Was this plan in the works before your heart attack? You have just experienced a major life changing physical and mental challenging episode. Take some time to process all this before you make any big decisions. JMO from someone who has been there.

RE: Rv-ers prefer Duramax?

Is there any way to order a Cummins diesel with GM interior and Ford paint? ;)

RE: Corroded 7-pin no more

Use a Plug-GuardX2 Keeps it clean and off the ground where it can get damaged.

RE: toilet bowl water

Clean the seal and then lube with Plumbers Silicone or olive oil. DO NOT use anything petroleum based. Replacement varies by type of toilet.

RE: Berrings

I wouldn't think brake size would effect size of axle bearings. Did you change axles? What size axle do you have?

RE: Electric Tongue Jack Power Problem

Thanks everyone for the replies. I think I'll follow the advice to hard wire it to the trailer battery. That will be a simple solution. Thanks I would suggest you add an inline fuse if the jack doesn't have one now.

RE: Price differences in water filters

Last time I checked the Berkey (my choice) could not be shipped to California. Government hard at work to protect us from ourselves. Hopefully that has changed and Berkey paid the money to certify what they already know.

RE: Power chords stuck together

I just use Deoxit D-5....works great. I also use an Autoformer so voltage is always good. X2 Dexoxit is a better choice than di-electric grease. Naolox is a good choice as well. Di-electric is a non conductor but works great in wet or exposed locations.

RE: Stupid question about tires

There are nitrogen pumps but not really affordable for home use. It's a gimmick. Just use that 78% nitrogen that comes out of your air compressor and you will be fine.

RE: Some things never change

And then there's the people who have a fire and the wind blows smoke into my camp, the guy next door who stands out there smoking a cigarette or cigar, then people that have music on their outside speakers or leave their porch light on all night, and the people who walk thru my camp space, kids riding their bikes with loud training wheels, or all the other things that people gripe about. How can anyone enjoy camping? Jeez! Boondock or become a hermit!

RE: Toilet seal lube?

Has anyone tried this Since it's petroleum free and silicone based I bet it would work fine.
