RE: Putting your RV.NET name on your RV

Old RV.net sticker I still have one on my rear window. Barney

RE: Fill in fresh water tank

Sounds to me like your fresh water tank drain is open. Close it and see what happens. Barney

RE: Considering the Andersen Weight Distribution Hitch

In my opinion - and I do not have one nor have I ever used one but have read extensively on them since day one when they came out - I think that the Andersen hitch would work fine on the size trailer you are considering. I would not use one on a large trailer with a heavy tongue weight. Barney

RE: Propane High Pressure Regulator Leak.

The position of the valve between the two tanks should stop the flow between them. If the pointer is towards the left tank, that tank should flow and the other not. I would return that faulty valve for exchange. Sounds like they gave you a bad one. Barney

RE: Please edit your quotes before posting!

Barney - (IIRC) the late Moderator Sir Francis Drake "took issue" with the same issue many years ago. He eventually relented in/on his quest to do the same. Good luck..:W ~ I knew Sir Francis Drake and he was a tough cookie. However, I am probably even more so. I will not relent, just delete! :B jerem0621, I understand.:) Barney

RE: Please edit your quotes before posting!

Folks, Please understand that I realize that sometimes it is necessary to include two or more quotes to make your reply make sense. That is not what I am objecting to. All I am asking is that, when quoting a person, you take out all the unnecessary quotes so that we don't have to re-read all the stuff that came before. Simple as that. :) Barney

RE: Please edit your quotes!

Folks, Please understand that I am not advocating removing the ability to quote a person or even that sometimes it is not necessary to include two or more quotes to make your reply make sense. That is not what I am objecting to. All I am asking is that, when quoting a person, you take out all the unnecessary quotes so that we don't have to re-read all the stuff that came before.

RE: Please edit your quotes!

I should have known some of you would take this completely the wrong way when all I am trying to do is make this place a more pleasant place to visit. Oh well, just going to tighten up the belt on my little boy schoolyard pants and soldier on. Please remember what I posted in the first post. Barney

RE: Please edit your quotes before posting!

This information is for everybody on here who likes to quote other members when making a post. Please learn how to edit your quote to take out all the unnecessary information that came before the portion you wish to quote. It is quite rude and irritating to make quote of a quote of a quote of a quote etc. and expect the members and me to scroll down the page to get past all the stuff we have already read. All that is necessary is to highlight all the print that does not apply and hit the delete key. Do this before you make the post. I have to spend considerable time editing posts that should not need editing just because the poster does not know how or is too lazy to do the job right. NO LONGER! From here on in, I will delete any post that has too many quotes in it. I am tired of spending half my time editing posts to make them readable. Too many means those posts that have come before, and are not needed to make the reply seem understandable. Use your common sense and you will know how to do it right. Thank you for your cooperation.:) Barney Well said ! Point taken! (you new someone would do it) Your post is a good example of a perfectly good reason for including a quote. It is on a new page and also is a long way from the post you are replying to. In addition, you only quoted me and not any possible others who also quoted me. Barney

RE: Please edit your quotes before posting!

Has there been a substantial increase in the cost of digital ink? What difference does it make if a post is 10 words or a connected stream of 10,000? Threatening to delete posts because you don't like how they are formatted sounds extreme. If moderating these forums is too much trouble for you, maybe you should consider turning those duties over to another volunteer. I don't care one bit how long a post is or the cost of digital ink.:R Part of my job is to help keep posts on topic, within the forum rules, and hopefully enjoyable for the members who come here. Part of that job means, in my opinion, reducing the number of repeated quotes within a member post. I never said moderating is too much trouble. I simply asked that you show some consideration for the other members and edit your post before I have to spend my time doing it. Seems to me that is a reasonable request. Barney

RE: Please edit your quotes before posting!

Not concerned with spelling. Posted this here and in the DIY forum because those are two of the three forums I moderate. Not concerned with other forums although it is probably good advice for those that participate in them. I guess you would know if you were a part of the problem if you find a lot of your posts with multiple quotes being edited by moderator. Barney

RE: Let's refresh they said....

It's a slick saw, I agree. ...but did I ever cringe at the freehand table saw cross-cut against the rip fence. I think about the only way to make that operation more dangerous would be to remove the blade guard. I will admit I haven't always done things "by the book" with a saw, but...well, I at least try to ensure that if something goes wrong, it will do so in a way that leaves me with all my fingers and abdominal organs intact. Me too! :E :( Barney

RE: RV Refrigerator Losing Its Cool

I turn mine off at night, especially when in close proximity to others. Those things put out a pretty good roar at 3am. You must be talking about the furnace or water heater. The OP is talking about a refrigerator - which makes no sound at all when on LP. Barney

RE: Why 4 X 4

I would want 4wd only for traction on roads or in campgrounds and I wish a stock 4wd truck was available that sat low, as low as 2wd Chevys used to sit. Even 2wd trucks sit high now. You need to take a look at the new Rams with complete air suspension. My truck automatically lowers when driving over 35mph and you can raise it 6 inches for off road travel if you wish. It also auto lowers when you shut it off to make entry and exit easier. Works like a charm and rides like my wifes' former Mercury Grand Marquis! :) :) I don't know if it comes on 2500 or 3500 trucks however. Barney

RE: Help with torn roof

Thanks for all the help, got it repaired in Amherst NS at Roymac Homes. If you are ever in the area and need help, these people are awesome. Roy put 3 experienced workers on it and done in a day with new membrane patch on front. Going to buy some eternabond tape to carry with me from now on, probably never need it LOL. I have always carried a roll of Eternabond tape with us for emergency repairs. I sealed every seam and roof penetration opening with Eternabond tape at least 13 years ago and we have never had a leak. I purchased the tape from Best Materials who had the sizes needed and also had the best price at the time I purchased. Barney
