RE: senior pass

What isn’t being considered within the three branches of the U.S. government? Besides, why should you and I pay less than a hard working family? Perhaps because I, and maybe you, have already paid our fair share and more for over 80 years. Barney

Since the OP has made up his mind on what he is going to do, I am closing this thread. Barney

RE: Required hitch for 6 3/4' bed

Sometimes using a short bed truck runs into problems if the terrain is not level. It the truck and trailer are at two different grades from side to side, or the truck or trailer tires happen to drop into a ditch or while leaving a gas station, or while turning or backing up, the shortbed truck will allow the trailer to contact the cab or take out the rear window. This can happen even if you have plenty of clearance for normal maneuvering. Just something else to be aware of and watch for. I think if I were you,for infrequent use, I would just use my existing hitch and watch carefully where I go and what the trailer is doing. Barney

RE: I think they’re doing it wrong

It appears there is no pin in the second level back section of this nightmare. The 1st section off the truck receiver is bending down from the weight. IMHO this is an accident waiting to happen! Lakeside No pin needed in that location. That is for putting in another shank from the rear. That way he could carry a flat platform carrier for his BarBQ grill. :B Barney

RE: digital thermostat

Yes, it has been done by many of our members. See this post, with pictures to guide you, from our Do It Yourself Forum archives . Honeywell digital thermostat conversion Even if yours is not a Honeywell, most of the stats available, Hunter, Lux, Honeywell, etc all wire up pretty much the same way. Hope this helps you out. :) Barney

RE: Extender Gas Cans

All I ever did was start the generator with the aux tank hooked up and the generator fuel cap air shut off and aux tank air open. The generator would then run and eventually suck the gas from the other tank. It was not necessary to prefill the line from the aux tank to the generator. You could sit there and watch the gas inch along the clear fuel line I used. It would keep the Hondas' tank full all the time and when I shut it off the tank was full of gas ready to go again. Barney

RE: WiFi Hot Spot App

Another vote here for FoxFi or PDAnet. I used it successfully for quite a long time on my Samsung S4. Now use the built in on my S8+ when travelling or up in the northern Michigan woods. Barney

RE: Texas road map

Pick up a Rand McNally Road Atlas at Walmart. They have all the road maps and the price is much cheaper then other places. Before the GPS came along we used to get a new one every year - only a couple of bucks as far as I remember. Barney

RE: 2008 Cameo F35SB3

Look under the trailer at that point. You will probably see a white pipe with a cap on it or a small valve. Remove the cap or turn the valve and the tank should drain. Barney

RE: Blow out water lines question

I pressurize the lines with AF, then crack the cold inlet on the water heater for a moment to put some in the tank. Works for me. Whoa! Glad it works for you but I don't think it will work for anybody else. When you get even a little bit of AF in the hot water tank it is very difficult to get it all out. You will have foamy, smelly hot water for a long time. If you drain your water heater there is absolutely no need to put anything in the tank. The small amount of water remaining in there will do no harm if it freezes. Barney

RE: Blow out water lines question

Why not spend a bit on a couple gallons of RV antifreeze and be 100% sure your are ok or blow out the line and HOPE you got all the water out? Either way takes about the same amount of time by the time you get the compressor out and hooked up. Also, I have never had any residual taste remain after running water through my lines in the spring. Did it both ways during over 40 years of RVing. Found out the hard way that the black tank flush line does not get winterized by using the antifreeze. Now, I blow the lines out and then put the antifreeze in. Takes just a bit longer but I know for certain that my RV is safe during the cold Michigan winters. :) Barney
