RE: Tank sensor wiring?

If you don't have a manual, perhaps this one will help.

RE: Winter Camping - Golf Cart

As far as the battery tender.. a golf cart has 6 batteries so I’d need 6 tenders..... not convenient. Would this work for you?

RE: Modern Food?

I also have learned over the years that you don't eat pizza on the east or west coast and you don't eat seafood in the midwest. I had a seafood dinner at a recommended restaurant near the coast in Maine, darn near died!

RE: Replacing drum brakes ???

Do you recommend reusing your drums? If so, how many times? Do you get them turned? Does turning include resurfacing the magnet track? Might do brakes this spring. Not sure if I should do new drums, even though they look good. Seems like a set of drums with hubs and bearings costs as much or more than the brake sets. The maximum diameter of the drums should be on the drum, normally they will have plenty of material to allow turning. The magnet track (armature) is a different story, they are often grooved and only .030" is allowed for removal and few shops have the ability to get the high finish required. When replacing bearings, use only Timken, not the cheap Chinese junk sold by most stores, eTrailer included. When burnishing new brakes, the manufacturer suggests doing repeated hard stops to get them seated. The problem with that is the new magnets are not yet seated and hard stops will work them hard, causing grooving of the armature. Now the new drums are as ugly as the old.

RE: Quiet generators

I think even the Honda is a Chinese engine now. Some Buicks are Chinese now too. Generator tech is pretty mature. I believe that the Honda 2200 generators are manufactured in Thailand. Perhaps the engines come from China, Honda has a plant there.

RE: Water pump issue

My water pump sputters anytime I turn the faucet on. It does pump but seems to pick up air and sputters both hot & cold. I did try just a 5 gallon bucket of water into pump and still does it.. Pump has been replaced once. Thanks for any answers.. There may be a small leak between the water tank and the pump where air is sucked in. If the problem is just fast cycling of the pump, drain the water heater and refill to establish the air pocket in the top of the tank.

RE: Modern Food?

Many Mom & Pop restaurants in our area are supplied by Sysco so the meals are basically heat and eat.

RE: Built-in microwave sounds sick

I have a voltage gauge plugged in one of the outlets and when the microwave is on it plummets into the red. Is there something I should be looking for? Yes, check the gauge on your fire extinguisher, you may very well have a bad connection and that can get hot. Like above, start checking voltage at the pedestal while there is a high load, then move on till you find the voltage drop.

RE: Strange Tales From The Road

I toured the second largest stone building in the world last month. It was the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum, they closed it too soon.

RE: how to level a trailer

Level the trailer front to rear and side to side as perfectly as you can by using a long level on the frame, then install a pair of levels on opposite corners. Now you can put the long level away and use the installed levels in the future knowing that they are correct.

RE: Honda eu2000i separate on/off switch

I've owned my eu2000i since they first came out and I have never drained the carb. Why are people wanting to drain their carburetors? When did ethanol laced gasoline come to your area? Some of us learned the hard way.

RE: Hot water tank not working on 110 VAC

The element is a big resistor that heats up. Resistors dont short they always burn open The resistance wire can short to ground.

Photobucket blurs the photos so that you will pay for the service. It is one slimy company.

RE: Ford knox sensor

Maybe the dealer wants to charge you an amount that will require robbing Fort Knox. :B

RE: Deceptive traffic citations

At least those in MD are NO POINTS and NO insurance effecting That only pertains to the camera traps. MD has those cameras at many of their school zones and use them at odd hours and use confusing signs so it is impossible to know when the lowered speed limit is in effect. The fine is not reported to the state and the money is divided between the camera company and the local jurisdiction, your drivers license is not affected because they want repeat customers.

RE: Deceptive traffic citations

If this is true then yep, you got unfairly targeted. Radar comes out it an ever expanding cone from the radar gun. So if two other cars raced past you at the time the gun was active then it recorded the faster speeds of the cars and the PO decided to pull you over. You can't really do much unless you have real proof to back up that the cars were the speeders. Yep, you were the easy pickins', motorhome equals money.

RE: Reese Sway Control Bar

it hs been amhile since I used one, but I do remember the instructions stating that if the steering wheell did not retrn to center unassisted after a turn that it was too tight. The adjustment is NOT the handle. The bolt is. Correct, but the steering wheel test is highly variable depending on trailer length, truck size, etc. What I do is find a straight road without traffic and do a quick input on the steering wheel to get the trailer to swing out a bit while watching for excess over-travel, then tighten the bolt a bit and retest. There will always be some over-travel due to play in the suspension and tires. Since there is both a bolt and a handle, that is way too much for some to comprehend. The handle only needs to be tightened enough so that it doesn't move, that could be done with one finger. I doubt that there are many that are adjusted and used correctly.

RE: Reese Sway Control Bar

I had two on a 26' trailer for years. Tighten it down tight and back off until the handle is parallel to the bar. If you tighten it too much during a sharp turn you will either bend the bar or break the little ball off or both. The handle is NOT the adjustment, read the directions.
