RE: Glow plug still in warranty

What the HE!! Is a glow plug??? Rod that goes into each cyl to pre heat before starting . In cold weather your turn key on & wait for light to go out then crank. My '03 also had a block heater but I can't find the plug if this one has it, but it just doesn't get that cold here but maybe 1 or 2 days a year. My Kubota tractor has glow plugs too

RE: IOTA Circuit breaker Box

Looking at an Iota manual , they don't give a specific brand but says any " interchangeable breaker " works so I would look at the GE style or Homeline.

RE: Help and Advice on a badly placed 5th wheel

This is all conjecture without a PICTURE! I said earlier the rv is probably junk & the neighbor built the fence to not see it. OP would have shown us if it was looking like new.

RE: Landing gear motor.

E-Trailer has the parts to do the conversion to 2 motors. It might be a kit but I can't remember. I was going to this to my Jayco but went 6 pt hydraulic levelors instead

RE: Boeing 737 crashes..........why ?

Ok, I just fly old Cessna's & an Aerocomander every now & then , so have had a question about flying the " big iron ". In the training for planes such as 737 is it taught that when everything is going bad is to turn the automation systems off & fly the plane . Would turning off the auto-pilot/auto trim early in the problem have helped?. I understand how fast things were happening in those 2 cockpits and I would not have come close to doing as well as these crews did.

RE: Boeing 737 crashes..........why ?

Boeing used their influence in D.C. to insert ODA wording in latest FAA funding bill so they can bypass FAA people and have their own people certify the 737 was just fine. Think also...they hired Collins Software to do the programming of the MCAS and some or all of the work was outsourced to India..... Give the man a cigar ! My BiL is a long time IT/programmer since early 70's and now does some recruiting stuff . He has been saying from the 1st crash it was cheap programming by The foreign guys. He says a bunch of Boeing in house programmers put out to pasture early on in the design process.

RE: Flaky Furnace Thermostat

Per the Coleman OEM install spec I was looking at, the 3 wire does not go to the furnace. Both 3 & 4 bundles go back to AC control box then a wire to furnace, but that's the way it's SUPPOSEd to be wired. To turn on furnace the white in the 4 wire gets connected to the red (12+). Do it with a meter 1st to check . Why they can't put a tstat wire in that will work all the contacts is beyond me.

RE: Flaky Furnace Thermostat

Check the 4wire bundle, red 12+ & the White is furnace. The 3 wire bundle does the fan speeds & the HP reversing valve. If mfg followed colemans specs for OEM install.

RE: Help and Advice on a badly placed 5th wheel

It's way past photo time. One pic would clear up the whole idea of how to move or just abandon In place.

RE: Flaky Furnace Thermostat

Which 8530-xxx do you have as there are a couple of different series ? From your original post, you said something about turning on the batteries so I have to ask are you turning off a battery disconnect and killing the 12volts to the rv ?

RE: Flaky Furnace Thermostat

OP, you mentioned 3 wires so have a question. Is your heatpump a Dometic and if so you might have the " communicating " tstat & if so that's what you must use. The 3 wires I mentioned are in a sheath and come from the gas furnace. There are 4 wires in another sheath that come from the Coleman Air Conditioner/Heat Pump. With only 4 wires back to roof AC , you don't have a heatpump based on the Coleman wireing diagrams I have seen.

RE: Flaky Furnace Thermostat

As long as the backup batteries are good the tstat doesn't care if it's 24 or 12

RE: Knee Pain

I'm also wondering if any of you has used any topical ointment that you've found effective? Just because the first 70 years were fine just means you got lucky. My late MiL had a saying, " getting old is NOT for sissies "

RE: Knee Pain

Quit jacking around with the home remedies and get it fixed. You will be glad you did after the rehab, not before. I understand not wanting to go to a Dr.. I am very reluctant myself but have learned at 71 it's about quality of my life and pain free is a good place to be.

RE: RV Lot Insurance Ideas

I would look for a new agent! Plenty of carriers who would insure X2 I have SF and keep my rv at our acerage.. My agent just added the location on my homeowners policy. I do have a rv and umbrella liability policy also. Your state may require a different policy on your building & land. I can get a separate policy he calls a " farm " policy that would give me more coverage out there

RE: Help and Advice on a badly placed 5th wheel

If a tractor or forklift rental is is more than you'll pay then why not just take it apart piece by piece and move it ? :S Did the neighbor build the fence so they didn't have to look at an old junky trailer with **** all around it ?

RE: Knee Pain

My nephew swears by Tumeric or Curcumin He notices pain returning when he stops taking it. TUMERIC Turmeric has helped with my joint pain. Lots of knee surgeries arthritis in left hand. As said, go see an ortho Dr asap. You are makeing it worse.
