RE: Very slow propane leak: how to find it?

If you are near a HVAC supply store get a bottle of Big Blue .it reacts to refrigerant & propane so you get a foaming area at the leak. I. Just had to replace a leaking regulator, leaking around the seam where the halves are pressed together.

RE: East Texas love bugs

Not really to bad right now, we have had tons of rain. That may be keeping them at bay. To clean the love bugs, wet a dryer sheet and rub then rinse. I'm a little north of Tyler & wasn't a problem driving home from the farm thru a big bottom area last night.

RE: Texas hwy 19?

Anyone taken Texas Hwy 19 from Paris to Huntsville? I’m going to hit Dallas around noon on Friday and I’m looking at a loop around. I am confused, are you getting on 19 at Paris ? It's a good road to Canton , was some construction in Emory a few weeks ago, but thru Monday All 4 lanes in Canton will be packed. You could take 19 to I30 to Dallas then take 635 around to I45 which is good to Huntsville.

RE: How to calculate the cost of RVing

I don't ever want to start keeping track of owning and using our rv. I would give it away if I kept accurate records. We enjoy our 5er. It's one of those activities to just enjoy. My BiL has deer hunting as his life's enjoyment so one year he kept track of every dime it cost to do his loved pastime. End of season he sat down & added it all up. He said he would never hunt again, tooooo expensive. He finally figured out to quit keeping books and renewed his lease.

RE: Triple towing / Dubble Towing

I only know my states rv rules. Here in Texas rv'ers can dbl tow up to 65 ft with no special endorsement and no matter what , if your rv/ truck combo or MH goes over 26000lbs GVWR you need a class A or B NON-COMMERCIAL license. I don't double tow so I don't worry about what other states rules are because I should be compliant length wise. Never a problem but my trips have all been only as Far East as the Applacians & the Front Range to the west, Indiana to the nort

RE: Financing TT's

Sometimes you can get a better price on the rv using the dealer financing. Read the fine print as some have a minimum length of time , usually a year , before you can pay off with no penalty.The lower price with the interest for a year added was just a wash when we were thinking tradeing in.

RE: 5th wheel hitch

Thanks for the help. I see one Patriot used relatively close to me. I don't think about raising my pin box, I'll look at that, that may make up the difference. One other option could be a gooseneck adapter. I currently have a Curt "spider" style gooseneck hitch for my 5th wheel rails. I pulled my friends gooseneck trailer with it and it was silent which is one reason of getting rid of the slider hitch. What are the thoughts of using a gooseneck adapter? It seems like it would be a lot more difficult to hook up. I found the Patriot I currently use on Craig's List. You can't buy a better hitch without going to one of the air-ride hitches and I've had gooseneck, Reese, & 2 AUH ..

RE: Rv pro Super Flex rubber roof system

Anyone have rv pro Super Flex rubber roof on their RV? Supposed to be tougher then regular rubber roofs with a texture finish that's not supposed to chalk. I have to replace the roof on my project trailer and thinking of going with the Superflex. I just brought my rv back from getting a RV Flex-Armor roof . This is a spray on roof that has a lifetime warranty and must be done at one of their locations. It's the best roof out there, imho Forgot, the warranty is by the vin # so is good for a possible future owner.

RE: Magellan GPS lifetime map updates

Magellan considers one year to be a lifetime, forget about getting updates. I have the Garmin 760 and download before each long trip if a new qtr. as that's their time limit, once a qtr and it's no hassle. Let's face it Garmin is the big gun in gps.

RE: Troubleshooting Compressor Windings

Take the readings from the wire leads & not the compressor terminals, the current from the meter can under certain conditions, example grounded, blow the terminals off the compressor shooting out very acidic oil & refrigerant . How does a meter with a AA or 9v battery blow the terminals off? Is there a new hydrogen/oxygen refrigerant ? Taking measurements off the leads may cause you to replace a good compressor due to a bad lead or bad connection. And while your questioning his electrical expertise, I'll question his refrigerant/oil expertise. It's not acidic. Richard ACID Just keep touching your leads on the terminals of compressors with grounded windings, It will happen. I don't have much HVAC experience, just a little shy of 40 years .

RE: Towing capacities aren't realistic, completely unachievable

If your in an accident and someone decides to sue you, whether you were towing 10,000 lbs or 12,000 lbs is never going to come up in the discussion. It's not realistic to try and prove to a jury (who knows nothing about towing, weights, or why it matters) how much the rear axle of the truck weighed at the scene of the accident 3 years ago, rather then you simply failed to stop in time. My attorney would use that info to convince the jury you overloaded on purpose just to injure someone for enjoyment. There are some pretty good attorneys out there makeing a boat load of cash by using every tidbit of info that can remotely be added to the story of how negligent the defendent was. Civil suits are to the point the attorneys should have to belong to the Actors Guild as well as the Bar. I tell my Son this all the time as he is an Attorney.So how is your attorney going to prove what Anything weighed at the time of the crash. Cause unless he is out there at the scene of the crime and takes possession of both vehicles then and there, he can prove nothing. He doesn't know how much water was in the tanks, whether the pantry was full or empty, how much stuff was in the back of the truck, etc., etc., etc. It makes for a good scare tactic, but show me one case in real life where a non-commercial RV was found liable and paid damages because they exceed vehicle manufacturer's specifications. Ask your son the Attorney which case he would rather try and prove; he was exceeding the manufacturer's specifications or he failed to stop in time. In a civil suit all the lawyer needs is to hit the emotional button of a majority of jurors not all of them as in a criminal case, screw the proof. Convince the jury it could have been one of them that was hit and you will protect your family by awarding a big settleme to this victim. I've been on a civil jury twice and both times the majority didn't look at facts, just the emotion of sympathy for the plaintiff.
