RE: Where do you find water

We carry a couple extra 5 gallon "water cooler" bottles. That's our drinking and wash water. Easy enough to haul and carry, and more durable than clear plastic jugs. Many Walmarts and grocery stores now have bottled water refill stations, but you can also refill at a well or spigot without needing a thief attachment.

RE: Can a 2017 VW Jetta manual transmission be towed?

We owned an older Jetta with a manual transmission, and could only tow it four-up. I think it was because of the ABS.

RE: toilet treatment for black water tank

Never let your tanks sit empty, and most chemicals are snake oil that cover up odors only. We do 5 gallons of water after dumping (Home Depot bucket x 1 or my wife's mop bucket x 2), and the sloshing action while driving is enough to prevent buildup anywhere. I am not sure what you mean by "never let your tanks sit empty"... ours are always empty when parked at home. I never leave them full. Do you mean for seasonal campsite? Parked, between trips, on trips, 10 months of the year, I've got a minimum of 5 gallons in my black tank. The only time my black tank runs dry is for full winterization. Then and only then, I'll drain off that 5 gallons, knowing it's sat there for weeks since our last trip and done its job...

RE: Tow vehicle service insurance????

Yes. But they limit speed to 65 mph to prevent transmission damage. Given the mileage my C gets, that would be an acceptable trade-off. We rarely exceed 62 while towing.

RE: How to tell if fuel pumps are running by current draw?

Is there a PID for that available that an OBD2 reader could monitor? DashCommand is a great app for realtime monitoring hundreds of different sensors that the diagnostic and emmissions controllers use.

RE: What good are low point drains?

Removing the drains might be more trouble than it's worth if the piping is PEX. Fairly certain empty PEX won't be damaged from being exposed to freezing temps. I've got some leftover PEX from a project... Maybe I'll cap a section and leave it in the deep freeze for a few days to see what happens.

RE: Window Haze

I have frameless double-pane windows that I'll be doing this repair on. Same concept, apparently.

RE: UPDATED: Arizona (not Nevada) roads question

I-10 is in fairly good shape, but the traffic is horrible starting about 20 miles west of Phoenix until you're past Tucson. I used to drive back roads between Phoenix and Tucson just to avoid I-10...

RE: Generator pros and cons

I love my Honda twins. I don't use them nearly as often in the past six or seven years, and they sit dry for most of the year unused. When I need one or both, all I do is fill the gas tank, pull once or twice, and they fire up. The trick to any generator being reliable is not to store them wet... I always run the tank dry until it kills itself, or use a fuel shutoff valve to the carb.

RE: Generator pros and cons

My solar goes a lot longer these days... when I first installed it, we had all incandescent lighting and a tube TV. Now I have LED's completely inside and a low power LED TV. The worst thing I'll have to run off battery is the furnace fans, and at our threshold for running the furnace, I can guarantee there's nobody's nearby in a tent or outside enjoying their morning coffee, so the generator will come on.

RE: 4000 Onan Microquiet immediate shutdown

You might want to consider a new carb. The orafices are so small that they might look clear but aren't. Mine spent 48 hours soaking in carb cleaner in an ultrasonic cleaner... that did the job. Simply soaking didn't.

RE: Roku in motorhome

Late to the thread, but we have had good luck running Roku off our home hotspot. Good tip on the 720p setting... that should help reduce bandwidth used.

RE: Voice-to-text software

Are you expecting it to work without internet? Dragon was the industry leader for an offline connection. Not sure if it still works off-grid or not.

RE: Not A Joke Top Off With Gasoline or Diesel

It's time to switch from summer to winter blends (and for some refineries to adjust to producing more heating oil), so it's pretty normal to see prices will head up for a couple weeks...

RE: Novice looking for an upgrade to Class C

5-6 times a year? Between what you'll pay in storage plus the costs of ownership, you might be better off renting.

RE: Brand New Deep Cycle Batteries Keep Dying Overnight

Our Winnebago has a switch between the house and engine for the radio, but I can't see that being a 2.35 amp draw...

RE: Michelin kaboom! Michelin tire update!

Our dry-rotted Michelins were 2004's so no free tires for us. And as Powertour said, they just don't last in dry climates... Since then, I've tried BFG's, Uniroyals, but Coopers are the keepers.

RE: I-94 through Chicago

We just returned from the UP... If Calumet is the destination, I-94 is a disaster. Construction from the IL/WI border into downtown Milwaukee. Instead, head down I-80 to I-39. Get on US-8 east at Tomahawk to US-45 north.

RE: Grote 46003 clearance light gaskets!!

Check with NAPA -- I know they carry Grote grommets as I needed some in a hurry last week and they were delivered same-day.
