RE: Drawing water from a lake

I think the OP's primary interest is not swallowing grit or things doing the backstroke, Correct because he drinks the lake water all the time. It is much easier for posters to skip reading the thread and simply post their opinion. :B Dave

RE: no power from generator

How long did you wait before deciding you had no juice. My generator runs for a minute or two before the transfer will automatically occur. Dave

RE: Tire Dealer trying to sell me older tires, what do I do?

HOWEVER, the company I used to work for had data that indicated that there was no difference between properly stored 3 year old tires and freshly made. So how do you know if they were "Properly Stored". :h The same way you know that some migrant worker did not take a whiz on the lettuce that's on your sandwich. :B :W Almost sprayed the iced tea I was drinking! :B Dave

RE: Tire Dealer trying to sell me older tires, what do I do?

So you are willing to accept 6 or 7 months but 12 is too much? IMHO you are overthinking the problem. These tires spent those unacceptable 5 months stored inside, not exposed to sun, moisture, asphalt or road debris, and without 5-10 tons sitting on them while under-inflated and often parked in the same spot. I would put them on the coach and save the receipt so I knew when it was time to think about replacing them again. Dave

RE: Various Rv types and wind

Try coming out of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel on a windy day. Exiting a tunnel on a narrow 2-lane 300 feet over the water and being hit by a 50 MPH crosswind is not fun, even when you know it’s coming. I let traffic pass, took the upwind lane, and still scared the pants off my wife in the passenger seat when we abruptly changed lanes. Dave

RE: What is this new Cloudfare security blocking

Seriously, no response from tech support? It would be nice to hear “Thanks, we fixed this. “ Dave

RE: Mobley to Unite SIM PIN Locked

from HowardForums ALL att sims come with a default SIM PIN of "1111" the software up date uses this to lock the change the PIN and I actually didn't have any hold time. I called 1 (800) 331-0500. When the automated voice came on and asked what it could help me with, I said, "Get a PUK code." The voice said, I can help you with a SIM card, please hold. And it transferred me to the rep who gave me the codes. once you have the PUK, Pin Unlock Key there are procedures to follow to unlock and protect your SIM slightly different IF your Sim is not in the mobley and not locked for locked sims insert into an UNlocked att compatible phone enter any random wrong PIN code 3 or 4 tries NO more it should ask you for a PUK to let you set a NEW PIN use that menu to enter your PUK you got from ATT set a new PIN of your choice for accessing the SIM you can now remove the SIM and put in any device and use that new PIN you created for device access Thanks for this post. After having changed my SIM PIN I then got a new SIM and the update locked it and I couldn’t move it to my new Netgear 1120. These instructions worked perfectly. Dab

RE: PA to Disney Route Suggestions

From Pottstown I would take either 422 or the turnpike West to 81 then 81 South. You can easily get back over to 95 in South Carolina using Rt 77 and completely avoid all the DC traffic and tunnels. I think it is actually a straighter shot. We just came back that way returning from winter in Florida. Dave

RE: Mini-Split Airconditioners

Actually it is a matter of length. We just had a two unit system installed and the installer told me if we didn’t have a 25 foot minimum run he would have to bury some outside. A shorter run will cause the inverter to cycle too often. He mentioned that the house he just bought has the problem because of a poor installation and he needs to fix it. Another issue with our system is it uses flared fittings rather than soldered and they would never hold up. The ducted mini-splits are great systems and can be squeezed anywhere and are really quiet. This was our second installation with the previous one in a 150 year old house. Dave

RE: Laptop dies when AC outlet is turned off.

The laptop will run more than 1/2 hour on the battery... If I unplug the AC power cord direct at the laptop the laptop continue to run on the battery... However, it I flip the switch on the GE outlet strip the laptop dies for lack of power. How is this a bad battery? Any battery that can run a laptop for an hour (as the OP stated later on)is not a bad battery in my book. My theory (WAG) is that the GE strip has a surge protector on it that provides just enough juice that the laptop "thinks" it is still plugged in, but it turns off because there isn't enough juice to power it.

RE: Oil Change

Honestly, who wants to change their oil themselves while on the road. Check out Jiffy Lube. They are everywhere, have pits and tall garages. Dav I do, no stripped plug, no double gasket, no loose filter and NO cheap oil. And no BS about needing all kinds of additional stuff. After the way they abused my aged parents, they will never see a dime from me. Oh, you mean when they stand there showing you a perfect air filter that has 13,000 miles on it and they broke the latching clips when ripping the filter cover off. :) You’all must look really gullible :B. I’ve never had an issue with Jiffy Lube and reading the other posts I’m not alone. I used to change the oil in my two boat engines, plus a genset totaling a half-dozen gallons and plus 3 filters but I had an engine room with lots of space. I couldn’t be bothered to carry empty and full oil cans plus bags for filters in my RV and then look to dispose of it. But that’s me. YMMV. Dave

RE: RV Pole Barn

Been there, done that, downsized. Just finishing a 24x30 barn with no support poles inside so it is wide open floor space. Room for our 24 foot class B, a workshop and a car. I still haven’t figured out what I am going to do with the huge attic space with stairs to it. Dave

RE: PEX pipe and fittings

Thanks. I just remembered that the system on my boat where work was done on the Pex had Shark fittings. I guess I’ll use them for this project. Dave

RE: PEX pipe and fittings

Does anyone know what size Pexlock would be for the hoses in an RV? Do they measure by ID which I guess is a 1/2 “ or OD? ** On Edit ** I see these are combo fitting/clamps available in pretty much any size so they come in matched sets. Dave

RE: Tolls in Florida

I have enough trouble keeping track of my one ez-pass. Does anyone know what the surcharge is if you don’t have one and they send an invoice? Their web site doesn’t make that very obvious. Dave

RE: RV travel agent? Could you suggest one?

RVing is like boating... plans are a good start but life gets in the way. Dave

RE: Myrtle Beach

Even we don’t stay at motels/hotels that take pets and we travel with two labs. It’s why we travel in an RV. As far as smoking... been there, did that, now not happy with second hand smoke, but that is my problem. Dave

RE: Fiberglass insulation that doesn't stay wet or attract mice?

I would suggest you go to Home Depot and look for the white plastic encapsulated fiberglass batts. I bought a package for the outside wall of a bathroom rehab on one of our homes and had half left over. I used the rest in a high dampness application where the previous insulation was removed due to mold. Five years later completely dry behind the insulation. Dave
