RE: New tires for 5'r

I buy USA tires if possible and never from a communist country.I'm interested in quality not ideology.

RE: New tires for 5'r

While I agree that Sailun s637 are the best, they're overkill for OP's fiver.

RE: Sailun tires

Sailun confirmed today that tires built before 2020 are not covered by the recall. All of mine are 4319. Whew!

RE: Sailun tires

Do you mean the white tag at the top of the photo? It doesn't conform to either of the UPC Walmart sent. https://i.imgur.com/onnVnROl.jpg "border=0" https://i.imgur.com/m3zZPvb.pngClick For Full-Size Image. On one side of my tires there is a semi-embedded white label with a number and barcode.

RE: Sailun tires

Copied from another thread... Sailun Tire Americas, Inc. (Sailun) is recalling certain Sailun, RoadX, Blacklion, Blackhawk, and Ironhead brand tires, sizes ST235/80R16 and ST235/85R16 with DOT codes 2020 through 4120. Due to a manufacturing issue, the tires may experience a belt separation. Belt separation could lead to loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash. Sailun will replace the tires, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed in December 2021. Owners may contact Sailun customer service at 1-844-281-9696.Is this a quote from a letter from Sailun or a thread somewhere? My 6 tires are dated 4319 / Made in China but Walmart where I bought them sent me an email saying "Our records reflect that you may have purchased one or more of the below items: UPC 0695965540992 SAILUN S637 TRAILER TIRES 0695965541960 SAILUN S637 TRAILER TIRES" Date code is easy to find but where can I find the UPC?

RE: Can't user 5er again this winter - replace red goo in pipes?

Once the water's gone, it doesn't matter anymore. Isn't there a lot of water in the antifreeze?

RE: Can't user 5er again this winter - replace red goo in pipes?

OP here: My lines are PEX. I'm aware that I should put some more in the P-traps etc. I just don't know if the alcohol can get through PEX somehow.

Can't user 5er again this winter - replace red goo in pipes?

For various reasons my RV won't be used again this winter. It was winterized a year ago. Does the alcohol evaporate (to where I don't know)? Should I replace the RV antifreeze before the second winter stored outside in Canada?

RE: Windows 11 available on October 5

Maybe it's time for an upgrade. I'm learning to fly and I downloaded a simulator to help with cockpit management. I'm only able to get about 6 frames per second even with the graphics turned down. ORRRR Maybe a clean install of W10.

RE: US extends border closure again

It's getting too late to make plans. Even if the border opens, I'm not sure I want to go to Florida until the current disaster gets cleaned up. I don't want to spend another winter in the Great White North even if this winter is as nice as last winter.

RE: Windows 11 available on October 5

My PC is old enough that I'm not eligible for the inner ring W11 beta (because it doesn't have secure boot) but MS assures me that W11 will run just fine despite that security opening in my machine.Apparently NOT. Just got their new PC Health tool and it says "No Windows 11 for you but we'll keep updating your Windows 10!". Maybe it's a blessing in disguise: what I've seen of the W11 UI, they're trying to make it look like a phone. I have ZERO interest in that.

RE: Windows 11 available on October 5

I know Linux seems "scar"What does "scar" mean? Scary? I have a dual boot system on one of my PCs - W10 and Ubuntu. On the surface Ubuntu is easy to use but I've been unable to get it to share files with the other W10 PCs on my network or find my network printer. It accesses the internet just fine. It's not scary to me but for the most part W10 does what I need. No need to switch as the webserver I was planning to install I did in the cloud instead. My PC is old enough that I'm not eligible for the inner ring W11 beta (because it doesn't have secure boot) but MS assures me that W11 will run just fine despite that security opening in my machine.

RE: Windows 11 available on October 5

It never ends. I have some XP computers running software that I am not paying thousands to update needlesslyHow are you protecting them from known security flaws?

RE: can this possibly be true? 150 amp hours $46.51 cdn

BFL13, No, it is in storage in Regina. I will demoth ball it at the end of August for some long overdue piano tuning out of town work trips. That is "IF" covid cooperates. For those trips, I'll be using the existing batteries for load support. One issue will be getting the fuel out of the generator.Mine's been in storage (beside my house) since March 2020. The advantage is that I can run the generator monthly so I don't have to worry about the gas.

RE: How to bypass Windows 11 limits and install on old PC

I'm not sure that article from zdnet is accurate. Microsoft advised me that my PC will not run the beta version of W11 currently being tested but that it WILL run the pre-release version. This PC is 11 years old and theoretically isn't approved to run W10 which I've been running since before W10 was released. Your PC will probably run W11 just fine.

RE: How to bypass Windows 11 limits and install on old PC

If my older Toshiba cant be upgraded I’d be tempted to try the linux OS in place of Windows.Make it a dual boot system - then you can still have Windows if Linux doesn't work out. One of my PCs is dual boot. I find Linux to be slightly more work.

RE: Possible Canada boarder opening mid August

However, Canada has over 80% of its over 12 yr vaccinated, while the US is only at 56%!80% with ONE dose. We're 50 something percentish fully vaccinated. Canada is starting to run into resistance getting more first shots into arms. Less than 1% per day now.

RE: Possible Canada boarder opening mid August

Joe Bedford. So you think that Biden will open the border on Aug.9? I wish you were correct. What info are you using to come that conclusion?I read this morning that Biden won't open your northern border until Mexico has the pandemic under control and your southern border can be opened at the same time. Personally, I don't agree with that analysis. The info is that Biden will be under a lot of pressure from border states and that sooner rather than later he will agree to open your northern border.

RE: Possible Canada boarder opening mid August

I believe the border will be open in both directions for fully vaccinated people at about the same time. Having said that, customs officers for CBSA are in a legal strike position so that could throw a proverbial Spaniard in the works.
