RE: Cleaning out a DIY septic tank

Cheap is being nice. Replace the tank with either a concrete or plastic SEPTIC tank with the proper inlets and lid for the pump hose. No need for a field line if you pump out on a regular basis.

RE: Winterize or Not

I get tickled on all the rv forums I visit talking winterizing cause it's gonna be 97 here today . Also get a good laugh over on the Kubota tractor board, all the northern folks hooking up the snow blowers. Not makeing fun because I have been in the cold climates a few times it's just funny to me how early you must prepare. We don't even give an early morning frost a thought until usually mid November.

RE: Long term camping

Thanks for the information on lake fork. Sounds very interesting. Any specific campgrounds. That anybody may have thought on? Thanks again! There is hundreds of them on Fork. We had a site there for 2 years at a small place but he is full. Lots of them with websites The bass are huge and the crappie fishing is also pretty good if that's your thing

RE: Six Volt MH battery in a tractor...

I am having to replace all four of my Interstate GC2-ECL-UTL batteries. Will one of these batteries work on a Ford tractor with a six-volt system? GM Yes is the quick answer but I had better starting with an 8 volt on my 9N. I eventually converted to a 12volt using a delco alternator & homemade bracket . It's been at least 20 years since I had that beast.

RE: Removing a B&W gooseneck from F-250

Looking at a used 250 with the B&W gooseneck setup. I know how to remove most of the hardware but is there some neat and simple way to cover the hole in the truck bed? Anyone else done this? Yes, you can get plastic hole covers if you remove the B&W. If it were me, I'd leave it in place and use something like this Demco 5th wheel rail adapter. https://cdn11.bigcommerce.com/s-7fff5/images/stencil/1280x1280/products/11366/17089/6140_Ind__64121.1450215953.jpg?c=2 It's a little pricey, but you won't have to buy another 5th wheel mounting kit and it will also preserve the gooseneck ball if you ever have a need to pull one of those trailers. If your Pullrite will fit standard rails this will be your cheapest option. KJ I use the Curt X-Rail which is similar to the Demco . Curt makes 2 versions, one for their round shank and one for the B&W square shank. I pick up the hitch attached to it but I use my tractors front end loader then put the rubber cover on the hole.

RE: Back hurting from bed in travel trailer - need advice please

We opted to spend the money for a Sleep Number bed and our backs couldn't be happier about it. IMO, spend the money on a good bed. Yep, we use Sleep Number in both rv & home.

RE: RV GPS Units / GPS Apps that ACTUALLY WORK???

Hi, Thanks for the replies. Yes, I did program the GPS with my RV specs and had it in RV mode. That is why i was really unhappy when it sent me on the route it did. I live in an area where there are several roads with low bridges and some truly unsuitable roads for RVs so it was the perfect area to test it. I realize that nothing will be fool-proof, but now I question whether the $300 was worth it if it is only marginally better than my car's GPS. Not sure. Matt I can't check as gps at the farm but on my 760 when in rv mode, the truck/trailer icon is on map & it changes when in automobile mode.

RE: Any of you guys winterizing with air only?

We lived in NE Oklahoma for several years and I always used air to clear the lines and then put antifreeze in the P-traps. Never had an issue. Ken Here in East Tx all I do is open low point drains, faucets, put a brick on the toilet pedal, drain water heater, then blow lines. I also dump then add AF to all drains and pour enough to get a little in all tanks. Ours stays set up with the heat on at the farm and I added a quick connect so I have 4 propane tanks feeding the heat. I only do this if we are getting a hard freeze warning, teens or lower which very seldom does. Here it's frosty one day & the next your wearing moody shorts.

RE: Long term camping

Recently retired and new to the forum. Looking for a reasonably priced long term campground. Would like to be on or close to a large bass fishing lake in the south. Alabama, Tennessee, Texas or maybe Florida. Any direction on specific campgrounds would be helpful as there are so many. Thanks There are dozen upon dozens of these on Lake Fork here in East Texas. Lots of really big bass come from there.

RE: Quit RVing

Happy birthday. I know it was a tough decision that all of us will be faced with. I recently sold my plane due to my wife has a health issue that will progress so I kinda know what you went thru with the decision.

RE: “I was shocked with just how white it was there,” she said.

Whats beyond their comprehension is that the thing stopping more minorities from camping is that,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, They choose not to. For some it may be economic, for a few others it's too close to things their families recently left behind, and for the majority, life with "all the modern conveniences" is preferable.And you know that because you're a minority. Right? And heaven knows that's the way "they" like it. I have 2 grandkids that have married Hispanics and I believe their spouses wouldn't go camping if I paid them. Both will tell you it's not their thing. They are both in early 20's so that might change. Not a scientific pole , just 2 minority's that don't like camping. Good grief, how many non minority don't like to camp, a lot. I should have mentioned some of our grtgrandkids of Hispanic descent love to go with us on occasion. Our normal CoE & Tx SP I see lots of minorities camping and I never gave a thought that it's a big deal. I just see campers having a good time. My wife is qtr Cherokee so I guess I have been camping with a minority since 1966

RE: RV GPS Units / GPS Apps that ACTUALLY WORK???

Put the 770 in RV mode and put in your rv specs. On regular car mode it will send on some really non rv roads. I have the earlier 760 and it has never sent us down a non rv road, so far. Garmin makes some good stuff , just get it setup correctly. I went thru a learning curve too :B

RE: Tires, again!

Thanks guys, this is just what I was after! The Sailun look good, but they take 110 psi, not sure my OEM wheels are rated for that. And I'd probably have to mail order them. Eight years ago, everyone recommended the Commercial TA, Michelin Rib, and Duravis 250. I went with the Commercial TA after multiple problems with the TowMax. When BFG recalled the Commercial TA, Discount got the Ribs as a no charge replacement. :) Its approaching 7 years on the ground, so looking for replacements. The GY Endurance look good, but I wasn't sure about another ST tire. I'll probably just go with the GY before my next longer trip. The trailer GVWR is 13688 lbs. with 6K axles, 3875 cargo capacity. Sailun has a tie pressure chart for each tire showing capacity at different psi. I run 100 psi cold based on my scaled weight.. my wheels rated 110 psi. GY probably a good tire, that was what came on my 5er but what GY did to the Tyler, Tx plant employees I just can't bring myself to buy them, but that's me. Hurt my friends, neighbors , or family I hold a grudge. I run Michelin on Tahoe & Yokahama on the dually.

RE: Golf Carts in Galveston?

My question is, does anyone know of another community where campers can ride their golf carts into town, like they do in Port Aransas? Over on Bolivar Penisula my BiL/SiL have a place on Crystal Beach and golf carts every where. Several rental places. We allways use Paula's Vinyard simply because in laws place on a canal is right across the street.

RE: Dometic Penguin 2 - compressor on, fan on, not cooling

FYI, the RUN capacitor only works at STARTUP. At roughly 70% of full rpm " back electromotive force , EMF " stops current flow thru start winding. . Yes it's got symptoms of a a bad run cap but again what's the amp draw & voltage ?. Could be a bad wire terminal, locked compressor, on and on. https://yorkcentraltechtalk.wordpress.com/2012/03/30/everything-you-ever-wanted-to-know-about-capacitors/ The RUN capacitor is wired in series with the start winding of the motor and stays in the circuit all of the time. They are designed to dissipate heat associated with continuous operation of the motor. The whole purpose of the RUN capacitor is to bring the start winding back in phase with the run winding. The start winding is slightly out of phase with the run winding to provide starting torque for the motor. The RUN capacitor also provides “running torque” once the motor is up and running. As you can see from the information above, the RUN capacitor is ALWAYS IN THE CIRCUIT helping the compressor / fan / any PERMANENT SPLIT CAPACITOR (PSC) motor perform better. sayoung before you start correcting people, educate yourself. reread the info you posted and WHAT I wrote. Back EMF stops the current flow thru the START winding at about 70% of full operating rpm. The run cap never leaves the circuit but it QUITS flowing current, don't touch it cause it will flow then.Once it's actually at full rpm you can cut the wire of the start lead and compressor will keep running. You do not need a start capacitor to start most compressors with fixed orifice metering or rapid bleed Txv. Start caps use a relay to actually disconnect from the circuit. It can stay energized for about 7 seconds then things get ugly. But according to you I don't know , allways somebody that doesn't know jack shoots their mouth off on this Forum. Moderator will probably kick me off but that's fine.

RE: Dometic Penguin 2 - compressor on, fan on, not cooling

Just because the compressor is hot doesn't mean it's running. Can you hear it running? From what you've said, I don't think it's running. The small tube coming out of it going to the condenser should be too hot to touch if it is running. If it isn't running, take a look at the capacitors. If the one in a metal can shows ANY sign of bulging, replace it. If there's one in a black plastic container, examine it for signs of damage - they can overheat very quickly and spew wax around before busting the plastic case open. If there's something that says "easy start" on it, it may have failed. The easy start and start capacitor get the compressor turning, the run capacitor keeps it running and reduces the amps drawn by the compressor. FYI, the RUN capacitor only works at STARTUP. At roughly 70% of full rpm " back electromotive force , EMF " stops current flow thru start winding. . Yes it's got symptoms of a a bad run cap but again what's the amp draw & voltage ?. Could be a bad wire terminal, locked compressor, on and on.

RE: Cant hook up a whole house generator

Just wondering if you plan to move in a few years,how can you sell the house? Any good home inspector would flag it for the buyer.It was just built two years ago and made it past the inspector then. Made it past the electrical inspector. Home inspector is an independent hired by a potential buyer. They are on the look out for any little thing. Do you KNOW which code your city uses. 2017 NEC I am pretty sure requires a cutoff on the outside of a residence. Anyway, just find a highly rated company to make it right. Why a lot of us good sub contractors call builders " buzzards " .
