RE: Auxillary Fuel Tank ?

On top of extended mileage I also find fuel at the lowest price, $2.54 - $3.09 with in 50 miles of each other. I fuel when I want not when have to plus save about $50 on an 80 gallon fill.

RE: MOTOR OIL ?

I never said the $8/hr. junior mechanic assigned to oil changes is incapable of changing oil - it IS very easy - I said they don’t have the same interest in making sure it is done right that I do. Reached oil change time and bought3 gallons of T6, took it in to have it changed. Came back when called & went outside to find 2 gallons on the floor???? New guy added the one gallon on a Ford 6.0 and never checked level. Had the shop manager come out and all he had to say was it was a new guy and likely is first diesel.

RE: Hobbies in the off season?

Just finished this model of the USS Constitution. I began the project at the start of 2018. During a fall 2018 RV trip, I made a stop in Boston to visit the actual ship to check on a few details. https://i.imgur.com/fLimjGMl.jpg Nice work!! I have that done to the deck & quit, just too much work.

RE: Auxillary Fuel Tank ?

I install a transfer refuel in my F350 from Trailer Supply. First 2 pumps were Fill Right 12V & both crapped out in under a month from another supplier. I now have the GPI pump from tractor supply about a year. I mounted the pump on the drivers side and always fuel the TV from it and refill the transfer tank from the station pumps, keeps fuel fresh. Otta see the attendants eyes when you hand them $200 on pump 3, 80 in the transfer and 38 in the TV. :) :W

RE: Flattest, warmest route to Las Vegas in January from NC

I-10 is the flattest through Phoenix which sets at about 1000ft. The peaks surrounding Las Vegas reach elevations of over 10,000 feet, and act as barriers to the strong flow of moisture from the surrounding area. (snow & ice) I have been in Lake Tahoe (6200ft) in Oct on a bike and got stranded in Las Vegas due to snow going back, December & January are the coldest months.

RE: Stay off the ice! 3 Trucks and TT go through ice into lake.

I grew up in WI and they plowed parking lots on the ice for fishing jamborees. My dad a a buddy built the first gas power auger I had ever seen with a V shaft Briggs mounted to a wash machine agitater turned upside down. I would drill holes where you wanted 3 for buck. Dad also taught me how to drive on icy roads on a frozen lake. Never lake Michigan but smaller in land lakes and ice was 36" thick or more, stay away from the ice heaves, where the two sides freeze and meet in the middle, it's thin ice.

RE: Directv or Dish?

I have had Dish for 3 years and it works well. With the "My Dish" phone app I can change my location to get local news & weather. It works so well I pull it from the RV and use it at home with the mobile antenna on a tripod. The down side is it does not always download the guild with means you need to manually do it.

RE: senior pass

I would be OK with using my pass only on weekdays in very high-use parks. In fact, I usually avoid public campgrounds on weekends anyway. X2

RE: freezer have ice flakes

Why not just tell all of us? Over a couple years I have found they place a made in America sticker inside on the bottom where the two lower doors join. Remove it and clean the glue. The center flap may or may not work, it has to close fully to maintain temp. If it still does not close you will need 2-4 nylon 3/16 washers from any hardware store,a 5/16 socket/nut driver and a flat screw driver. Next remove the trim on the top of the left lower door, you'll find 3 5/16 bolts, remove them. You can now remove that top hinge, the door should stay. Lift it up and off the lower hinge and set it aside. Clean the lower pivot and install the nylon washers as needed to raise the door. Reinstall the top hinge & check door alignment, make sure the flap is in place putting the door back on. Check door & flap operation. It should now close as it is supposed to. Here's a YouTube on the fix: www.youtube.com/watch?v=OMsPpc3DDx0

RE: Have our trucks got too much power yet?

A German company has shown an intriguing prototype. Self propelled camper One big advantage of a driven trailer would be the extra traction available. A big disadvantage is that the drive train wouldn't get used nearly as much as it would in tow vehicle so payback would be much longer. However, if the system makes such that you can pull the trailer with a much smaller vehicle there could be some real advantages in that. Isn't self propelled campers Class A/B/C's?

RE: freezer have ice flakes

This was happening to me this past summer and it turned out it was the refrigerator door. My refrigerator is a side by side. One door has to close before the other or the flap between the doors doesn't click in properly. In my case, the door on the left has to close firmly before the door on the right closes. If yours is a Norcold 2118 PolarMax PM me and I can tell you how to fix the stubborn flapper.

RE: Bent Kingpin?

Like the other posts, somethings broke and it is not safe to operate. Inspect it and find a good weld shop to do the repair work.

RE: NM-26 Between Hatch and Deming, New Mexico

I just drove it Friday as I have relatives in Deming. Worst issue will be Semis traveling slow pulling hills and few places to pass safely. One slow down area at Nutt to 55MPH & NM State Patrol does work the highway as does the Deming police on their end. The travel plaza in Hatch has some really good Burritos, DEF at the truck pumps, & a free dump station.

RE: pressure washers

I would not worry too much if it is only a 1500PSI, usually electric, washer however I would not waste money getting one that weak. I have a 2500PSI gas washer used primarily for boat bottoms, house roof, concrete driveway. Effective but nowhere near a good as a 3000 or a 5000PSI. Get yourself a nice soft brush, a decent length adjustable painters staff from Lowes or somewhere, a bucket of of soapy water & go at it. Much more effective & safer for the graphics than a pressure washer. The only time mine has seen a pressure washer is in TOK, Alaska at a fuel station there where you can wash your RV after you buy fuel. Feels like a 3000PSI but I keep my distance & use it to get the chunky bits off then rinse after brush & soap. Used an electric 1500 on the roof this year, worked great. Added Oxiclean to the soap water, soft brush, pressure washer rinsed and it's like new. I'll keep the gas for the truck, shop & driveway.

RE: Do you need a special license to drive an RV?

Not all states do but they should, for any type RV. Driving an A,b,C, or pulling a TT or 5W all need skills not used driving the family car. The biggest is you can not see what directly behind you as the rear view mirror is useless.
