RE: AC problem from hell: Now compressor is turning off.

is there a chance there's some cold air leaking into the return air flow and tricking the thermocouple thinking the air is now cold? I had this issue on my brand new TT.

RE: A Commercial Vacuum Sealer Might Be Just What You Need

knowing how to use a food saver is 95% of it's success. Liquidy type food, put it in the freezer first before sealing. Liquid under sealing iron will prevent a good seal in all but the best commercial units. As said above, the cheapy units aren't worth the cheap Chinese plastic used to produce them. I've started using bags that have a "rough" surface. It helps slow the flow of liquid.

RE: '07 Lincoln Town Car Towing

transmission was set up on that pig to maximize fuel economy. Lock up torque convertor will quickly heat the trans up while towing. your best option is to find out if a predator is available for the vehicle and find someone to do a custom tune for you to tow with. I would also make sure you get the wt distribution well set up.

RE: Cracker Barrel

cracker barrel by my house has some of the worst food and service I've ever seen anywhere. Locals hate the place. They get enough transient traffic to stay open.

RE: What do you shut off when leaving for a trip

Water is turned off. Sure beats a problem if a pipe bursts if the furnace happens to go due to a power failure.

RE: those with boats

slow and easy away from other boat traffic. I became the master at torture for people riding the tube. One friend challenged me, stating nobody's ever been able to knock me off one. We agreed in max speed. Do I dare say I had an inboard ski boat that could spin on a dime? I saw a fairly large boat on this inland lake just plowing through the water. I timed it absolutely perfectly, launching him about 10' into the air, and to make it better, the tube turned upside down. He let go and curled up into a ball. To be that young (and stupid) again :)

RE: Snowbirding - What is typical monthly rent by region?

If you don't like the AZ numbers, forget about Vegas! Quartzsite is cheap but why anyone wants to spend the Winter (or any week of the year) in Quartzsite eludes me! What's wrong with quartzsite?

RE: photography

f/ ? I have found sigma lenses to have variation. I lucked into a 70-200 f/2.8 that is super fast focus and incredibly sharp. my 18-200 VR the store allowed me to try multiple lenses on my camera. It was the 4th one I tried that was the charm. I've only sold one lens, and I regretted it after I sold it. I don't know anything about sony lenses

RE: New camper coming has nitrogen filled tires

Ah, but Ron, they never were 100% Nitrogen anyway.:W But they said it was :)

RE: Most American made truck

It a useless and ridiculous calculation. If an OEM imports an incomplete alternator, it's missing say something like a ground wire and screw, and that is installed in NA, the cost of the whole product is considered NA content.

RE: Propane smell after traveling

I'm disturbed the propane leak alarm isn't going off.

RE: Unleaded vs. Premium gas, does it make a differnce?

I filled up in SC with ethanol free premium before going into the mountains of NC. The truck seemed to be running better through the mountains.

RE: Lippert Frame Issues

I got a LOT of photos today. I'll go through and post a few of the interesting ones. 3" was an exaggeration. Looks like it's about 3/4" side to side axle alignment. Also, one tire sticks out the side of the trailer. Huge crack in the frame... about 2" up the side of the rail. Several missing welds. Some never welded at all, others are just tack welded. One photo baffled me. Where one weld may or may not be is covered up with expanding sealant. I said, WTF is this? She said, you're the engineer, you tell me. What I hadn't been told before, apparently when the dealer she took it in for bearing repack, literally pulled pieces of bearings out of the hub. This thing is a mess that should have never been built into a trailer.

RE: New camper coming has nitrogen filled tires

also had one that had a constant leak no one could fix. Now, new tires from Costco - different tire but filled with nitrogen at no cost. Why didn't you replace air with N2 in the leaking tire?

RE: New Trailer Axle

I've said it before, but I'll say it again. Never put any trailer, new or used, in service till the hubs are serviced. Good tip. Dealer that sold us ours, that is part of their inspection criteria.

RE: New camper coming has nitrogen filled tires

Actually I think Nitrogen is a benefit. n. Nitrogen doesn't expand and contract as much as typical air from a compressor due to moisture, so, when your tires get hot, the Nitrogen tire does not expand as much, or have as much of a pressure change. Horsepucky. Automotive tires don't get hot enough for moisture to have any impact tire pressure. You'd have to get the AIR temperature inside the tire above 212F before moisture has an impact. At 212F, you're in deep doodoo already.

RE: Lippert Frame Issues

I'll have her send me some pics. One side of the tongue being an inch longer is unconscionable.
