RE: How to eat a onion ring

A&W has the best onion rings I've had anywhere, anytime. They cut the onions in store, dip in batter & drain, then dip in the crumbs. After frying the outside is crispy & the onion inside is cooked, but still a little firm. The onion does not slide out of the crust. My gosh, I want some right now.

RE: generator stalls when converter tries to charge battery

If you have electric water heater, make sure that is off too. On mine that switch is on the WH itself. that element is a 1500 watt, and would for sure kill that EU1000. Otherwise, is your battery dead or heavily discharged? If so the converter will kick on high output to recharge, and could be your issue too. I don't want to hijack the OP's thread, but added my comments thinking maybe there may be something about some RV converters that doesn't play well with inverter generators. In my case, all 120V loads were turned off, just the charger & propane detector were on. Battery is in good shape & charged.

RE: generator stalls when converter tries to charge battery

I have a Honda EU1000 that won't run the on board charger either. With all 120V circuits turned off, the generator overload cuts out immediately when the trailer is plugged in. Not sure what is going on here. The carb has been cleaned & it runs fine.

RE: Plastic Fenders

I wonder how hard it would be to glass the back of them for added strength. I had the same issue with the screw holes being cracked. I just scuffed the back side around each hole & applied epoxy (slow cure, not the 5 minute kind). A stainless steel washer was also epoxied to each hole on the front side. After curing, I rattle can sprayed it with a new coat of white paint. That was over 2 years ago & that fender still looks like new with no cracks around the screw holes.

RE: Cheater adapter to run 50 amp

Some campground pedestals have the load side of the 30A breaker connected to the 30A receptacle as well as the line side of the 15A breaker. So a cheater cord won't gain you anything. All the load goes through the 30A breaker anyway.

RE: Tembren system vs oversprings

I've had them on 2 vans and a pickup & I hate every minute of having them. The effectively reduce suspension travel & make for a harsh ride. I had them removed & a spring shop install heavier springs, which were better in every way. I originally installed them because my BIL was a distributor & convinced me that they were great. And they were very good for his bottom line.

RE: Duramax L5P Fuel Mileage

Anyone have any real world experience with the fuel economy of the new GM L5P Duramax in a 3500 DRW? Nope, but I =did= subscribe to one of Gale Banks' videos where they've totally instrumented a new crate L5P engine and are going to keep pushing it until, as Gale said, "the crankshaft's on the floor or the heads are on the ceiling". :B Lyle Gale Banks produces some excellent and informative videos. I don't even have a diesel, but I love watching his videos.

RE: Duramax L5P Fuel Mileage

A bit of a hijack here, but this MPG talk reminds me of a summer job I had in the mid '70s carrying drywall (what a way to make a living). There was a regular run out to one of Calgary's bedroom communities, about 20 miles, mostly highway. There was a gooseneck loaded with drywall, pulled by a Chevy 2500 454. We got between 2 & 3 MPG. How things have changed!

RE: GM's New 10 Speed Allison Transmission

Too bad they won't just give us a 7, 8, or 9 speed manual instead. That's a lot of development work for you and the other 12 customers. ;) The transmissions already exist. It is just a matter of being willing to install it and market it. There's plenty of demand for it, people just don't want derated trucks just to have a manual. A manual that would hold up would sell and did sell in the past. Unfortunately for those that want it, the market has already told all the manufacturers that the demand just isn't there. I used to far prefer manual transmissions, but automatics have so far outstripped them in efficiency and driveability that I'd not buy a manual.
