RE: Leaking Water Filter and Hose

.... What about putting pipe dope on the threads of the hose? Or Teflon tape? would either of these help? ....To be blunt, NO. As others said, use good rubber washers. The solid part of the fittings need to be sealed with the washers, the threads just hold the ends together and compress the washers. Make sure the hose ends are square without any strange bumps.

RE: IRS calling

Yup, got one of those on my answering machine. "A warrant has been issued for your arrest, call this number immediately .... ". My wife was starting to think it was real and was anoyed that I was doubled over laughing. I was beginning to feel left out because I hadn't received one of those scam calls. :R

RE: Trailer ball height

... Here is the OP: Been lurking here for months soaking up,the info like a sponge. Simple question that I have saw many answers on from posts and videos. Is the top of the hitch ball supposed to be level with the top of the receiver when backing up to hitch up. Or is the ball supposed to be 1" or so higher. Have used both ways but looking for the correct install. Thanks for the help. The questions are in bold. I answered the questions asked.I read it the same way you did. I wish the OP would clear up the question.

RE: Tell me about Cape Cod

It has been many years since we explored the mid-cape and P-town area but we do take day trips to the canal for lunch. (only 1 1/2 hours from home) Mid-week is the best time to travel to and on the Cape. Crowe had some great suggestions. Coast Guard beach is considered one of the best in the area. Park at the Visitors Center and take the free tram to the beach. The lighthouse at Chatham (on the "elbow" of the Cape) gives a fantastic view of the ocean and has parking that should handle a mid-sized C rig. It might be an interesting ride past it going to/from the beach. I don't know if you can still walk down to the sand from there. Is does seem that if you are going to the Cape a ride to P-town completes the trip. Rt. 6 is good road ALMOST into the town. The kids might like to climb the 252 feet to the top of Pilgrim Monument at P-town. The view from there is fantastic. Enjoy

RE: Straight Talk Talking in Circles

I have 10 gigs with Verizon on my cell phone plan for $60. Why would anyone spend more money on a Straight Talk plan for more than you pay for it directly from Verizon?The Verizon site shows Prepaid Data Plans $100 10GB expires after 2 Months. http://www.verizonwireless.com/prepaid/data-plans/ If you are talking about phone and data then Gulfcoast shows Straight Talk is less expensive. Yes, lots of people wonder why 5Gb = $50 and 7Gb = $75 :h

RE: WIFI Hot Spot

... I think wi fi is not the same as 3G. ....You are correct. ... however ... A "WiFi Hotspot" is a device that gets internet data (3G or 4G) from a cell tower, just as a smartphone does, and then feeds it out as a WiFi signal.

RE: WIFI Hot Spot

You can get a hotspot directly from Straight Talk with free overnight shipping until 6/20/16 https://www.straighttalk.com/wps/portal/home/shop/otherdevices/hotspot Put in your ZIP code and you usually get 4 choices: Mobile Hotspot (UNIMAX U240C) $29.99 Mobile Hotspot (Unimax U240C Reconditioned) FREE with Plan Purchase! Mobile Hotspot (ZTE Z289L) 4G LTE $49.99 (AT&T towers) Mobile Hotspot (ZTE Z288L) 4G LTE $49.99 (Verizon towers) The U240C is 3G speed. Some time back there was a problem with the Z289L on AT&T but that has been fixed and they work well. My Z289L usually gives me 5Gb dowload speed. I only activate my hotspot when I go camping.

RE: New England RV parks in the fall

Keep in mind that in New England most campgrounds are closed after Columbus Day weekend. Columbus Day is October 10 this year. Most campgrounds will be quite empty and you will not need a reservation EXCEPT for the weekend itself.

RE: UPS/FedEx routing

Well, that beats a UPS ground delivery that went north from New Jersy to Manchester New Hampshire and then back south to Warwick Rhode Island. I have never had one go through the same location twice .... so far.

RE: planned GPS outage on the west coast

Seems the test has been cancelled. clicky The U.S. Navy has canceled plans to jam GPS signals in the vicinity of the China Lake, California, Naval Air Weapons Station. AOPA had raised concerns about the impact on civilian air traffic and the size of the affected area. The Navy did not reveal the cause of the cancellation, other than to say the reason was “internal.”

RE: planned GPS outage on the west coast

One of the online stories (that I can't find at the moment) showed a "side view" of the interference. It was a V shaped directional pattern.Dont forget that they are reporters trying to demonstrate a point. But look at the plot issued on the NOTAM. The radius of this thing looks to go out possibly 500miles. If that's accurate the verticle view is probably going to look like a mushroom. It'll be interesting to see who and what's affected by this. Even at Goldstone there are GPS sync'd clocksThe story I mentioned had a link to an FAA drawing showing the cone shaped beam. Anything on the ground will not be affected. Virtually every telcom office uses GPS clocks to sync digital switches and transmission equipment so it isn't just places like Goldstone.
