RE: Disable automatic updates for Windows 10 Home

My data usage has put me 20.00 a month over my usage since I went with 10.

RE: 110 hookup only ???

On a single 120 volt outlet I have been able to run one AC as well as the TV and lights. I switch off the AC when using the microwave. The WH is on propane as is the refrigerator. It just requires energy management and watching the meter to see how many amps you are drawing. +1 We spent six weeks in a friends backyard on a 20amp breaker, fridge and waterheater on gas, ran microwavew when needed, Mr Coffee in the morning, toaster as needed, ran the furnace a few nights when it got cool.

RE: Fridge Gas to 120VAC

Our fridges for most part run on 120VAC and kicks over to gas if power goes off. Has anyone made up a circuit to do this the other way around ? Thank you. Why? I don't know you model but on auto our DM2862 is selective either Gas only for when one might be on limited AC or auto AC/gas. When we stay at a friends with only 20 amp (it's free camping) I run WH and Fridge on gas the 20 amp keeps the batteries charged a morning coffee pot and maybe the TV and ceiling fan.

RE: Dometic RM2652

Our RV frig's check light stays on when on gas mode. I have shut it off and turned on the frig several times but it stays lit. I have replaced both the inside and outside circuit boards. Where do I look next to resolve this problem? Thanks in advance! Ted Does it run on gas mode? Does it run on AC? Could be the Thermistor if it freezes in lower compartment. Or if: 9. Check light on.

RE: Keeping the fridge cold on hot weekends

Under filling is as bad as over filling so keep the fridge full of beer, take out a cold one and replace with a warm one.

RE: 15000 BTU AC troubleshooting or not?

I have one of those volt meters that you plug in to a receptical it was reading 114 while we were using a 20 amp to run the AC. We were also using a 30 ft 30amp cord atached to our 30ft 50amp with a 50>30 dogbone and then a 30>20 reducer. AC is 12 years old.

RE: slide out floor replacement?

I've replaced all three of my slide floors. 3/4 marine plywood with 1/4 ACA laminated screwed and glued over the seam plus 2' stainless flat stock over and under the seams. Waterproof epoxy on the underside I would assume yours is 1' as well 3/4 would not hold at the span of 4'. My slides are 3x11'6" and 32"x13'6". They're more difficult to remove than replace.

RE: Anyone do a total rebuild of a TH ramp?

If a man made it a man can rebuild it if a machine made it you may be out of luck, check Utube videos. Try google "how to repair toy hauler ramp door".

RE: Depreciation Class A vs C

Here is something else to consider 1) A class C is more mobile for folks that don't want a toad. 2) Many folks can store a C on property where an A may require off property PAID storage. 3) Intimidation/perception, a C cab looks like the like the Uhaul box van they used to move an A looks like a city bus.

RE: Best Route From South FL To Seattle

Is the trip really just to get from here to there? There's so much to see between FL and the PNW, the heartland of America. You could, if you go to New Orleans, head north from there along the Natchez Trace a beautiful drive, Memphis, home of the Blues. Don't miss the Arch Gateway to the West in Saint Louis, you could follow the Big Mo as Louis and Clark toward your destination. Maybe stop for a view of Mt Rushmore, Devil Tower, Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument. Through Montana we have taken both I90 up to Idaho and Coeur d Alene but also US 12 up Lolo Pass a beautiful drive all the way to I5. Hey it's your trip make it what you want.

RE: Lots of Fords

6.0 and 6.4 were not Ford engines 6.7 was Ford designed and built. As far as the quality of the truck other than the engine Ford is beyond the others.

RE: Shower wont drain unless black tank is dumped

You had the black tank pumped out, but if you had a large mound of dried paper and poo only the liquid may have been removed so the usable volume may still be compromised which would require more frequent dumping. If you know the gallon capacity of your black tank and your gauge works I would empty the tank then close the valve and get a bucket of known volume and pour the number of gallons of water down the toilet till your gauge reads full. If that number is less than the capacity of your black tank I would assume you still have a pyramid of poo.

RE: Sequoia - Bear Lock Boxes

We volunteered in Alaska last summer. We had 3 different bears visit us in 4 evenings. They all just sniffed around outside none approached the 5er. On another night I heard one but didn't bother getting up to investigate the next morning you could see where it had climbed up on the bear proof trash bin and you could see dirty paw prints on the storage building door where restroom cleaning supplies were kept.

RE: milage question

Since our truck is used almost exclusively for moving the 5er from one volunteer position to another using Google maps each move can be added together for mileage on the trailer.
