RE: Windows 11 Experts?

Just curious, do you really need an H partition. I have been heavy computing for 30 years and never needed different partitions on my internal or external drives. Thanks.I put LINUX on a separate partition. I've installed various VMs in separate partitions. My F: drive used to be my C: drive until I replaced C: with an SSD. Oh yes, I've been computing for 55 years noob :)

RE: Windows 11 Experts?

We're getting a new Dell laptop as soon as we get home in 3 weeks. W11, 500GB SSD. Is "send to" a new feature of W11? I've always used copy / paste for other W dot X OS'es.

What glue to reattach pleated blinds to frame??

I recently restrung a pleated blind and maybe the strings are a little bit too tight because the bottom pleat is coming detached from the bottom frame. I'm wondering what glue to use to reattach the fabric to the metal frame??

Have you tried bringing in the slide with manual override?

RE: Season soon to end - putting RV into storage

Summers down south are battery killers. So you’re leaving the Rv batts in though?I have 2 12V deep cycle batteries in the RV. One is 10 years old and the other is 5 years old. I'm thinking of disposing of the 10 y.o. one and going with only 1 12V. If the summer kills one or both the batteries, it'll motivate me to change them / it. It's my plan to leave the RV here until we're done RVing (a small number of years) then haul it north to sell it. I don't see much dry camping in our future.

RE: Season soon to end - putting RV into storage

Simply disconnect to eliminate any parasite draws on power.I'm going to do that with the RV batteries but not the golf cart batteries. Summer heat is really hard on batteries; different than winter cold.

RE: Season soon to end - putting RV into storage

Yup. Just move to Florida like everybody else does ... and forget about it!Sorry, no. I'm looking for good weather all year round not just winter.

RE: Season soon to end - putting RV into storage

I let my Class A driver's license lapse so if I ever got into an accident I don't know if I'd be covered. I'd rather not haul it too far.

Season soon to end - putting RV into storage

The last time I stored the RV in Florida, I had power so left the a/c set for 85F which got rid of the humidity. This time, no power for 7 months. I got some pails of damp-rid and put a vent cover on so I can leave one vent and one window (partially) open. I'll disconnect them, but I'm also worried about the house batteries being dead when I come back. I'll have a spare battery or jumper cables to get the the generator started (so I can run the levelling jacks). I have less than a mile from storage to my site for next winter. PITA but I'm taking 6 golf cart batteries north with me so I can tend them. Any other hints what needs to be done?

RE: Burning electrical smell from furnace

Welcome to the forum. You've replaced every component except the blower motor. Could it be .... the blower motor?

RE: Overload built-in Onan gen. without popping a breaker?

But if the generator overheats, wouldn't it give you an error flash? I didn't get that.

RE: Overload built-in Onan gen. without popping a breaker?

My Onan 5500 has a 30A breaker and a 20A breaker.

RE: Overload built-in Onan gen. without popping a breaker?

There were no fault codes. I didn't monitor the voltage because it seemed to be fine until it wasn't. I'll check the voltage next time I run it under load. When you say "kill" do you mean make it stop or break it?

Overload built-in Onan gen. without popping a breaker?

I was testing my gas-powered Onan 5500 the other day. I was running both air conditioners and the water heater. It seemed to be handling the load well but after 20 minutes, it just stopped - no sputtering or anything - just spun down suddenly. I was able to restart it and it worked OK but I'm wondering what would cause it to stop like that. There's plenty of oil (in fact maybe a bit too much oil). No breakers were popped.

RE: RVs swept into river in CA

And on a related topic: from Ottawa (approx. where I'm from) the Rideau Canal ("longest skating rink in the world") isn't going to open this year because of thin ice for the first time since it started in 1971.

RE: Camping in New Zealand

We didn't camp in NZ but we saw many campgrounds when we toured there when we didn't want to go to USA in 2017. They're relatively primitive but well maintained. I wouldn't mind RVing in NZ; right after we do a motorcycle tour there. No problem driving on the left as DW is ex-English and I've driven in England many many times, but we did hear of fatalities caused by foreigners driving on the wrong side of the road. I don't know what this gov't red tape you're talking about is. We didn't have any. We did a self-drive LoTR tour (FANTASTIC!) so we had to rent two cars. No problem.

RE: Kitchen stove fan "flap".

Still have the original on my 12 y.o. RV. No need for me to have a stronger one. I occasionally have to latch it closed on a windy day or the banging noise will bother us,
