RE: conceal carry permit SD

Yes, we do have constitutional carry, but this is directly from the states website: "Has physically resided in and is a resident of the county where the application is being made for at least thirty days immediately preceding the date of the application;". It seems pretty self explanatory to me.

RE: Solo fire pit

My wifes asthma won't let her sit around a fire in a regular fire pit anymore, so we bought one of the Solos also. What little smoke they do give off isn't enough to make her cough at night. It sure isn't enough to bother adjoining campsites. That being said, we have only been able to use it once and that was at a state park campground because of fire bans where we usually go. It is nice to be around a wood fire again, the propane fire pit just doesn't give off the heat. Before you call a propane fire pit a "fake", stick your hand in it. That fire is REAL! LOL!

RE: Discoverer AT3 XLT

I have Cooper HT3s on my pickup and with 10k miles on them I am very happy. Much happier than the Goodyear Duratracs I previously had on it. They seem to be wearing much better. I did use Falken Wild Peaks on my previous pickup and didn't mind them at all either.

RE: 5th wheel parts

https://macsaluminum.com/ Try these folks if your Outback dealer or mfg can't help. I had to replace the front aluminum cap (in '90) on a 1984 26" Aljo 5th wheel trailer. They were about 12 miles away from me so I dropped the ruined cap off at their place. They matched the tri color pattern and horizontal rib pattern perfectly.Thank you for that link. I bookmarked it for future reference.

RE: EPDM roof Material or Something Else?

snipped PS, Use the link and use that glue to do your repair. What I do for your type is to cut out the square area and remove the rubber. Cut a slightly larger piece of rubber and glue in place and then use Eternabond around the perimeter. https://dicorproducts.com/product/water-based-bonding-adhesive/ THAT is why I like reading your posts. As simple as it is I wouldn't have thought of doing it that way but it would definitely work better than what I would have done. I would have cut a slit at the bubbled part, laid it down flat and put Eternabond on the cut part to seal it. I still wouldn't have the repair glued down doing that, even though it would be sealed. I am also a lousy carpenter. ;)

RE: EPDM roof Material or Something Else?

OP here - First thanks to IAMICHABOD that link told me I have an EPDM roof - Now the follow up question - what adhesive is the correct one to repair a section of the roof? Thanks! josh How big of a section are you needing to repair? If it's a tear, get Eternabond tape. If it's a small hole, the I would use Eternabond and then Dicor self levelling.

RE: Water Pressure Regulator

^^I agree, there is a reason the Watts regulator costs more. The RV Guard model looks like the Valterra regulator. Bad thing about a cheap model, just more expense, when you decide to toss it, and get a proven high quality one. Myself...I quit using any, just fill my 60 gal fresh tank as needed, and have a great, consistent water pressure. Nice too, in case you ever have a water leak, you catch it right away. Jerry I curious....How long have you used this approach, and how many water pumps you replaced? I like this idea, but am always hesitant to, as I'm concerned that the water pumps they put in RVs, like many other RV components, aren't meant for prolonged use. I'd be concerned that if we used the water pump all the time for everything water related like you are advocating here, we'd be replacing a lot of water pumps. How has your water pump held up under this kind of constant use?I do not use external water connections except to fill my fresh tank. I have faith in my Sureflo pump. In my last 5er, I accidentally left my pump on for a day and a half, running dry. I was sure I ruined it so I ordered a new one and replaced it. I am still using that pump to pump water from my 60 gallon bladder to my tank in my current 5er. I haven't done a thing to that pump yet. We had our last 5er for 8 years, this one is on it's 5th year, and we stay over 100 nights a year in it since we like it better than our home, but can't afford to full time yet.

RE: Need help understanding how to set up an ARP device

The instructions for my ARP device were NOT well written. Also, I couldn't get the device to change settings. I learned the hard way that a "TAP" of a button was not enough. I had to "HOLD" the button to make changes. Richard I agree. Poorly written instructions, and lots of "refer to something or someplace online." That's not handy when boondocking. I am glad I have the unit, and offhand I would recommend checking to see if maybe your heat sensor is too close to the heat source or not firmly against the metal.

RE: Drill motor for stabilizers

I have to agree that the impacts are annoyingly loud. I was walking early one morning, 6ish and some a$$hat decided that an impact at that time of the morning was the tool he needed to use so he could go home when most were sleeping. I did say something to him and he looked clueless. Love the "all about me" people. Late morning to early evening and the impacts are just an annoyance. Earlier or later than that and they are just rude. Using a quieter tool doesn't affect anyone, and a drill is MUCH quieter than the little impacts. That being said, I have auto levelling, so I don't even need a drill.

RE: Electric bikes !!

SNIP I'd be afraid if we had E-bikes, we wouldn't get as much exercise riding. Temptation would be to get lazy and let the motor do a lot of the work. The only time I do that is after happy hour!!! And I love it! :)

RE: Electric bikes !!

I would love to have a electric bike. But, as a 58 year old, balding, jeans wearing, heavy set guy, I think I would look stupid on one and people would laugh at me. Could be worse. Around here if I rode a bike wearing a spandex outfit and a helmet like I see people on TV doing they would beat me up or something. lolHey, I'm 58, and jeans wearing. You wouldn't look stupid on one, and if someone said you did what do you care at this age? The exercise is great for you. Don't do the spandex. EVER!

RE: secureing sofa in slide

We pulled the jackknife sofa out of ours and replaced it with a dual reclining loveseat about 4 years ago and it's not fastened down. The original one wasn't either. No problems yet.

RE: Need big collapsible bowl for salad for 4

I bought a couple of these in the original size, they have a lid and a cutting board is part of the collapsible bowl. Just a heads up, my shipping was very slow but it is a good quality product. Drip EZ I specifically did not want a drain in the bottom so I could use it to marinate meat without worrying about leaks.

RE: 80 amp charge controller

Epever seems to have a few issues periodically and is considered low end value product. I have not used this controller so just going on what I read. I've read the same thing but then again, I have read what trash Renogy is but I haven't had any issues with the two I have, other than smallish connection ports..I'm looking to get an MPPT 20 amp controller here very soon soon..Epever was on my short list but I may just go Victron and be done with it .. I have respect for Renogy, I have some of their components and like them. They have gotten used used daily for a few years now and no problems at all. That being said, I am going to go with Victron for my MPPT charge controller, and most likely my next PSW inverter. I have one of their 375 watt inverters now and am going to go with at least a 1200 watt unit.

RE: New porch light

While I don't have a direct link and honestly didn't even look for a light, my first stop on the internet for led lights is always Superbright LEDS.

RE: 12 volt Refrigerator

You would be much better off with a propane refrigerator. That is debatable ! You could be in big trouble if you run out of propane and there is no refill station nearby. Snip The OP has been a member here longer than I have been. I am pretty sure he would make sure his propane is topped off. Also, I have never heard of this as an excuse to not use an absorption fridge before. Yes it could happen, but highly unlikely. Edited to add: If my Norcold would die, I would replace it with a 12 volt compressor fridge. That being said, I must be lucky as we are on our second Norcold, and they both work or worked very well into the upper 90's. Our ice cream has never thawed, even into the 100's. :)

RE: Camping Courtesies

If you will be repeatedly getting in and out of your vehicle throughout your stay, silence the beeps.This one is SO annoying! Either leave your vehicle unlocked or press the button on the door.

RE: Silver Bullet Hose

I use my tank all the time so I think it could be a good hose. I will keep it in mind if my Zero G goes bad. I do love the Zero G hose.

RE: 2020 F350 6.7 weak start

We have a 2019 Highlander. Was sitting in a parking lot waiting on my wife while she was in a fabric store. Ignition in accessory position, radio on nothing else. The master alarm suddenly goes off and the dash display pops the following message " shutting Ignition off to conserve battery". Radio only????? After 20 minutes???? ..... Mfgr's put the smallest battery in there, thank the bean counters.Actually not always. My wifes Taurus takes the same battery as my 7.3l Powerstroke. Only one of them though. ;) My best friend has a 2017 or 18 6.7l and he left his sit most of the winter without starting it and it cranked right up when he tried it early this spring.
