Mass Graves ?

Spoke to the 92 year old lady that lives next door . She was concerned about the mass graves that the county officials were speaking about at the last school board meeting ! WOW , I rushed in and replayed the meeting . I found out that our counties " Math Grades " were certainly a concern to the school board !

RE: Early Television

Early TV , brought back a memory . When Queen Elizabeth was inaugurated the ceremony was filmed and the film was loaded on an airplane and while being flown across the ocean it was " souped '. As soon as it got to NYC it was shown on all the TV stations in America . I was 8 YO and was waiting for Milton Beryl , uncle Miltie to come on , what a disappointment . Just some woman walking around in big dresses . My bro and I were angry for weeks .

RE: Best leveler for travel trailer?

Wood , 2x6 or 2x8s . Plastic is for toys and water bottles !

RE: How safe is etransfer - selling big items?

Have him send the money to me and I will forward it to my banker in Nigeria and then I will send you a certified check and an offer to extend the warranty on your auto , all at no charge to you ! P.S , how is your supplemental insurance ?

RE: Unbraked trailer, towing limitations

I wonder if putting an axle with brakes , or adding brakes to existing axles would be cheaper/better than buying a new tow truck !

RE: Powering AC unit built into travel trailer with solar?

Solar panels run nothing ! Solar panels will charge your batteries . To run a rooftop air would take many , many batteries and a way to charge them . Solar panels would do that IF you cover your whole roof with them and spend several thousand dollars on batteries , maybe ! You need to spend some time studying this before committing ! Six to ten thousand dollars should cover it !

RE: Jacking For Tire Change

With a "trailer aide ' type device you can have the flat off the ground in the the time it takes to place 'trailer aide " at the tire and pull forwards or backwards . Back 15 years or so before the Goodyear trailer tire recall my wife and I changed several flats each week during our delivery schedule . Are best all time record was eight minutes between blow out and back on the road . NEVER JACK !

RE: Jacking For Tire Change

Never jack , run the good tire up on blocks to lift the bad tire . Use boards or there are several ramps built for this purpose .

RE: Your Opinion On Air Bags

Less than $200 , you can put them on yourself . I like them as I routinely drag 3 different trailers . A trailer with torsion springs needs to be hauled level . I can raise the rear of my truck to level which ever trailer I hitch to .

RE: 16' Scamp and 2018 Ram 2500 diesel

My Ram 2500 CTD got more than 25 MPG while on the Natchez Trace for 400 miles at 50 MPH pulling our 20 foot Winnie , so it is possible !

Inverter ?

Assuming that I have the battery power would a 3,000 watt inverter run a rooftop 13,500 air for an hour or so ? I now have 4 six volts hooked up as 12 volts . I would only need air for an hour or so each day . Nothing else on batteries except normal pumps and lites .
