RE: Furnace bugs

Regardless of local important to maintain furnace or any appliance. Just like exercising generator run furnace from time to time, blow out air input and output tubes. Drain and flush wh every now and then. Best way to assure they work when you need them is to run them when you don’t.

RE: Calculated MPG

My DW gets a receipt for every gas fillip and writes the odometer reading on it. She then puts the receipt in the glove box. She gets really mad if I fill her car and don’t do the same. This goes on for the time she keeps the car. When it come time to trade, I clean out the car and throw out all the trash in the glove box. Not once in all the years has she done anything with the information. This is the same women that complains about the price of gas yet she might drive 1-3 thousand miles a year.

RE: GM outsold Ford??

I doubt the delay in delivering the CyberTruck has to do with lack of chips. More that Elon has found it harder for the engineers to live up to what comes from his mouth. I suspect IF GM or Ford deliver what they promise for their EV truck line, Cybers will come in third. They be just butt ugly. (My opinion of course) I dont think its about the trucks anymore. This year and last, the one able to secure the most chips wins. And Tesla's sales almost doubled because they program their own chips and were able to program/reprogram cheaper available chips. If it was that simple, where's the cybertruck?

RE: Converting Onan generator from gas to propane

Do you think the number of “horror stories” significantly out number the instances of people who have had zero issues? Of those with issues, how many have to do with fuel source versus issues due to no or poor maintenance? It will make you sleep better than swap.

RE: Camping on Sand

Be prepared to take some of the beach home with you. Wind and shoes will bring the sand into the RV. DE may not think that’s a good thing.

RE: Best Toad braking System

Take a look at the NSA Ready Brake system. Easy one time install, fool proof.

RE: Musk Starlink now has a new problem

Might want to read the column from The Verge. Cats in the antenna sounds like the least of Starlink's problems. Yeah I know it's Beta, but sounds like trees and buildings are not its friend. Same issue as Sat TV, and OTA TV. Trees, buildings, mountains, any obstacle, rain, wind, planes passing overhead may interfere with the signal. But the promise is to bring internet to millions of out of the way places.

RE: Musk Starlink now has a new problem

Years ago, many years ago, my parents raised cats for show. It was quite common to have 10-15 of the furry hell-kittens running around the house. When the TV was on, most of them gathered on top and there was at least one tale hanging down over the picture. One nice thing about flat screen TV’s no place for kitties.

RE: Where did the Non weekend RVers go?

Maybe they’ve found better things to do with their time.

21 years and no map updates? Anything you buy will be much better than what you gave now, and have many more features than you may want, or wish to learn. In my opinion, Garmin is still the gold standard for GPS based mapping devices but they are not infallible. I have a Garmin 760 and use it when going long distances in the RV. One of the best features is you can update the thing wirelessly, no pc required. A word on Google maps is if it can’t get me to my house, why would I use it to go somewhere else? I live on a main road and Google send delivery drivers down a wrong road, even when they are on the right road already.

RE: Laptop Google issue??

You might also want to try a different search engine after you get the problem resolved. I agree with the post above, sounds like you need to do virus detection. I only use Windows once a year to do taxes, and this is the last year I’ll do that. As far as a search engine, check out DuckDuckGo. A very good engine, maybe not as powerful as Google, but then they don’t watch everything you do. I moved away from anything Google with the exception of I will watch utube videos.

RE: Hwy 321 Columbia to Savannah?

Wouldn’t bet on that but maybe. Shorter yes.

RE: Hwy 321 Columbia to Savannah?

It’s a nice ride thru the state. Will take about an hour longer than 26-95 but I appreciate you wanting to avoid 26. Nothing I know of will be a concern. Plenty of little towns.

RE: Broke down on the road, what's your insurance experience?

I too used Progressives coverage and they were good. But they are only as good as the local service companies which is true for all providers. If there is only one tow company within 30 miles that’s who you get and they may be busy.

RE: TV Antenna

Height has always been important for OTA television. Put the Winegard on top of that pole and you’d get equal or better results. Just like an antenna on top of a 30ft mast on top of a house gets better reception than rabbit ears on top of the tv. (Well that goes back a few years)

RE: Windows 11

Seems I’ve done my last Windows OS upgrade (other than upgrades for 10). Had already moved almost everything over to IOS anyway. But MS told me I don’t have an upgradeable system (Surface), and I’ll not buy another.
