RE: Office 2016 - Outlook??

I use Outlook, but keep my current Contacts list in my Google account. I keep them synchronized by occasionally exporting my Google Contacts and importing them into my Outlook Contacts (after deleting the Outlook contacts of course). I quickly learned that even though Google has an "Outlook CSV" format, it is NOT the same as my Outlook 2016 CSV format. I wrote an Excel macro that reads Google's version of "Outlook CSV" and converts it into Outlook's version of "Outlook CSV." I bet you have the same problem, the output is incompatible with what Outlook needs. Even though both are CSV format, they have to have the same fields in the same order. An example, if TB has the contact as "Jones","Sam","1234 Anywhere St" and Outlook needs "1234 Anywhere St","Sam","Jones" you have a problem. And, if TB throws in a field that Outlook doesn't have, or deletes a field that Outlook has, you have a bigger problem. Outlook doesn't know what the data means, it is just importing string data into empty fields. It is up to you to be sure the data imported is what Outlook is looking for.

RE: Tire went flat in the driveay. Damage?

Bobby I call B S on that! Your refusal to believe does not make it false. Try it sometime. I agree with the follow on post that says once the ratchet strap has the bead seated, you must put in some air before removing the strap. Your definition of "seating" the bead differs from what is commonly accepted. A bead is considered seated when it is pushed out tight against the outermost ridge of the rim, all the way around, on both sides. There is no way for a strap to achieve that. A strap will push the tire's bead out to the step on the rim, cutting off airflow so you can inflate the tire and seat the bead, but it does not in and of itself "seat" the bead. By the way, I did not have any issue seating the bead. All I had to do was lift up slightly on the tire and apply air. You are right. My definition of "seating the bead" is when it will hold air for inflation. Since the ultimate goal is to re-inflate the tire, my definition is good enough. Anything else is semantics. I am fine with you using whatever term you want to use.

RE: Drill Holster (tip)

I always put the jacks down before I let my wife enter , but then you guys do not know how heavy my wife is ! I hope your health insurance is paid up if she reads this! :B Ha, life insurance is more likely to be used here than health insurance!!! I was going to post for him to tell her to let me know when the funeral will be. I will attend.

Can of starting fluid works better than strap, but likely to send old women screaming and waving hands. I've seen that done too, but wasn't about to recommend it.

We haven't put down our stabilizers in years.

RE: Tire went flat in the driveay. Damage?

A strap around the center of the tire with a ratcheting clamp will seat the bead without using air.

RE: Honda 2000i tips and tricks for changing oil.

more expensive, but more useful for other things Form-a-funnel Years ago I bought a 3 pack of flexible cutting boards. I am still using them to make ad-hoc funnels or protective shields. Dirt cheap. They cut quite easily with ordinary scissors.

RE: 12 volt DC problem

Happy to be of service. After the battery is fully charged, get it load tested. Taking a battery down that low can kill it.

RE: 12 volt DC problem

No 12v power. If you are not plugged in to shore power, your battery is dead. If you are plugged in to shore power, your converter is not putting out 12v and your battery is dead. Could be no power from pedestal. (Power outage or breaker tripped.) Could be breaker tripped in your RV. (Main breaker or breaker to converter.)

RE: Trailer hitch pin

Kip :: In the English system, we use pounds to describe weight and feet or inches to describe distance. You may remember that 2000 pounds is called a "ton", but did you know that 1000 pounds is called a "kip"? (It was most likely shortened from "Kilo-Pound") So, when you see a notation like "kpf", think "kips per foot". 0.48 kpf would be equal to 480 pounds per foot. Engineers use kips since it makes the numbers much easier to work with (especially in the days of slide rules) and reduces errors caused by lost zeros.

RE: Anyone rent out their camper?

When my son was 20, he asked if he could borrow my RV to stay in at Bonnaroo (a relatively local music festival). He QUICKLY added that I could drive it up (towing my car) and set it up, then afterwards I could come back and break camp and drive it home. I said "yes, absolutely." Then I said I would even give him the choice of the bed or the jackknife sofa bed. He asked what I meant. I told him I was staying in the RV while it was up there. But, not to worry, I wouldn't bother him at the music festival. I would stay in the RV and read. That was the absolute last I heard of him borrowing the RV.Which tells you exactly how your RV would have been treated had you simply let him use it without you there!!!:B I knew better. I watched him growing up. ;)

RE: Chipmunks

You should have a well stocked freezer by now. I’m jealous, squirrel gravy and squirrel stew makings right at your fingertips. Squirrel and dumplings is our favorite. However, you have to add chicken broth because they are so lean there is no broth otherwise. Squirrel pot pie is good too. When we get 3 to 4 squirrels, we have enough for a very good meal.

RE: Leaving breakers in the camper on while away?

we leave trailer plugged up What in tarnation?!? I though this was an electrical discussion, not plumbing. I thought more along the lines of needing a laxative. It is the Pharmacist in me.

RE: Chipmunks

When we bought our current house 11 years ago, squirrels had been living in the attic for YEARS. I finally bought a very high quality pellet rifle. (I wanted accuracy.) I am up to over 500 squirrels now. No squirrels in the attic for years now. (I am now down to less than $1 per squirrel.) But, I still have squirrels in the yard. You will never eliminate them.

RE: Charging issues?

Getting 12.3 volts shows a mostly depleted battery, and that is under no load. Fully charge the battery and get it load tested. Without load testing you have no idea how good that battery is.

RE: Dometic Fridge stopped working in cold weather? Ideas?

I don't think that the GFI outlet tripped......I still had power to the control panel, and the door light inside the fridge worked when I opened the door. The control panel and door light are both 12v. They will work without 120v power. As soon as I hit the "GAS" button, it started cooling again. If it cools on gas but not electric, you have a 120v problem. The GFCI would be the first thing I checked.

RE: GFIC tripping

GFIs are very sensitive. They trip all the time. Many MHs and TTs have a 30 amp system but are plugged into a barn or garage with a 20 amp circuit. Sometimes your rig with a GFI is plugged into a garage circuit with GFI. They fight each other and trip. uh.... how many times has your hair dryer, electric pressure washer etcl with GFI tripped and faught with the breaker panel GFI???? IMHO pure BS. Downstream GFI's work well with an breaker panel or upstream GFI. I've got literally dozens of downstream GFI devices used in the house and trailer along with breaker panel GFCI/AFCI on all my circuits and NEVER have had an issue with a downstream GFCI causing conflict or tripping with a breaker panel GFI or vice versa. Same with our son in his house. any time one or the other tripped it was a FAULT, pure and simple. They did what they were supposed to do. True. GFCI's fighting each other and tripping is a myth. But it is a commonly believed myth.
