RE: GM trucks outsell Ford first quarter !

Yeah same around here GM was basically giving the trucks away up to 12k off and 0% for 84 months... Your bias is showing. GM was not doing 12k cash and 0% for 84. Additionally, you had to have near perfect credit to score the 84. As for the other discussions regarding sales being higher in May for Ford F-series, it is proven that vehicles sales are seasonal based on factors. The auto companies all know and understand, and then we get politics and world impacts that disrupt. Correct. All three have a variation of that financing offer now. And none of them offered it before the economy shutdown.

RE: GM trucks outsell Ford first quarter !

Ford sold twice as many trucks as GM. Just a test to see if anyone notices a truck comment in this post. :B

RE: Destroying a truck

More money than brains..... :RYou tube probably pays him $20k+ a month for the air time. Yep, they probably will make way more money from youtube and facebook than what that truck costs. No different than a movie studio spending millions on some actor and millions more to make a movie all to make millions off of it. Or a football team spending millions on some football player to make millions off of them from the tickets, merchandise, TV deals, and so on. There really is no value out of either of these other than entertainment. Too many forget youtube in an entertainment source. Want to learn something, search for that. Want to watch something that fits your taste for entertainment, search for that. No different than watching the news or the bachelor on TV. You have a choice.

RE: AZ Governor Statement on RV Travel during Stay At Home order

Golf courses here in CO are open even though we are on a stay at home order. The clubhouses are closed, you cannot rent a cart, and they turned the holes upside down so you don't reach in there to grab your ball. Flags are fixed too. Not a golfer. Does that mean the hole is now shallower so the ball is up higher to grab?

RE: Furnace Short-Cycling

Can you actually observe the flame? Have you watched it when it turns off (short cycle)? Is it the proper flame? Maybe that could help discriminate between a flame with poor fuel flow or one with poor drafting.

RE: water pump problems

A water tank vent doesn't leak into the basement. My tanks vent is right beside the fill. It could if the leak was near the top of the tank and it was over filled. In either case, a leak in the tank itself would not impact the pump. Unless the leak was at the pump. And the OP has tested the winterzation port so presumably would know if there was a leak in the very proximity of the pump. They may need to drain the tank and do a similar test but draw from a bucket from the normal pump port. Just because it is drawing from the winterization port does not mean the primary works.

RE: Furnace Short-Cycling

That tongue looking thing un-screws along with the sparker unit and the orifice can then be seen. You can check that for if its hole is plugged up. Also confirm the sparker gap is correct--could matter even more for the new gap flame sensor method. The screen on that tongue eventually rusts out in places. The furnace burning gets wonky from the flame being exposed where there is no screen anymore. You can get a new one from Amazon. Be sure to get the right part when the time comes. There are different tongues by models of furnace. Just got one for my old 8531. This post explains where the orifice IS. When you have microscopic debris floating around behind the orifice, it gets in front of the orifice hole and blocks the LP for awhile. That is why I keep asking about the orifice. Obviously, you are confused as it seems you do not know what the orifice is. Remove the orifice and verify there is no debris in the cavity behind the orifice and the orifice hole is clear. You can use PC can air to blow it out. Now, I am almost 100% sure your problem is a bad LP regulator from your posts on the way it malfunctions. REPLACE the LP regulator and then retest. FORGET the exhaust tube system. You are not going to have a problem with the exhaust tube and parts of it. There are hundreds of thousands of this model Furnace out there with that same exact exhaust tube and NONE cause problems. Doug That would explain why it works with the restricter out. With the restrictor in the velocity increases and would present as running out of fuel. Is this a fair assessment on what is occurring?

RE: I have a different kind of electrical problem

Manual transfer setup to let the RV power the home. Looks like a mechanical device to shut off all incoming breakers so power does not back feed to the utility company. Typical backfeed setup with some interlocks to help reducing the chances of powering up the suicide cord.

RE: 12V heater run straight from solar panel

Are you trying to heat an RV, are you just trying to not use batteries until night? Seems like it would be more efficient to have all the panels charging the battery bank and just using the furnace. Just curious on what you are trying to achieve.

RE: water pump problems

Thanks for all the suggestions. It is definitely on the inlet side. I have no idea what happened but I have leak right at the top of the fresh water tank. I am thinking where the fresh water line enters the tank. I had two thirds of the tank filled and no water leak. When I filled it to the brim a little water leaked out. I checked the pump by running water through the winterizing hose and it worked fine so.... I replaced the pump for no reason. :( Works fine with city water inlet though. So does it work now? A leak there should not cause the problems you are experiencing. The tank does not need to be pressurized. You are drawing air somewhere in front of the pump or the pump itself.

RE: Furnace Short-Cycling

Do RV furnaces use an inducer motor/fan? If you are talking about the Fan pressure inducer like in a Gas HOME furnace---NO. The Sail Switch is used instead of a Pressure inducer on RV furnaces. Doug Thank you. Did not want to suggest something that was not applicable. I had to replace the inducer motor on home furnace last month. Even though it was operating it was turning too slowly and not giving enough draft to keep from tripping the flame roll out.

RE: ? L E D taillights

I somebody is that anal about their tail light brightness, I would suggest getting a set of magnetic lights and put them on the trunk of their car and plug into the 4 flat connector. bumpy They are the same price. Why would you be opposed to purchasing the proper bulb for the location and fixture?
mich800 03/27/20 05:46pm Tech Issues
RE: ? L E D taillights

I have seen a number of times that the bulbs should be replaced with red LED bulbs because they show up better. the original bulbs should be adequate, but if you want to throw money away, have at it. I think I have replaced a dozen at most old style bulbs over the years. bumpy Actually the school of thought I have read is to use the same color bulb as the lens to maximize color and brightness. Below is per Super Bright's website. which color to use

RE: Full-time and don't/didn't like it?

If I had to put numbers on it. I would surmise a vast majority have no intentions on a full time RV lifestyle. I never thought of it as the rule not the exception.

DW used to groom and show poodles. Haven't been to a barber shop in the last 2o-30- years. Now all I can picture is a guy with a big white afro.

RE: 110 outlets

I am not sure I understand this part. " And no power at the first2 double beakers in the panel." Are you saying you checked and there is no power off the breakers in the box?

RE: Ford, GM, FCA Agree to Shut Down US Plants

Ford is looking to re start production of their trucks in one month. They seem to be quoting the expiration of the current stay at home order (at least in Michigan). So this may be a moving target. My contract job for an auto mfg is supposed to go back the same date. But that was announced the same day we all went down. I am not counting on it right now but hopeful. Have some friends that work at a major hospital here and not showing signs of letting up right now.
