RE: I Should be Dead...The importance of a TPMS

Even my basic model 2009 PT Cruiser has TPMS. Our 2012 Rogue does too. Wish my 07 dually had it.

RE: I Should be Dead...The importance of a TPMS

A good, somber reminder from the voice of experience. Glad you averted disaster, and thank you for saying something that all of us should know. I know the importance of TPMS. I totaled one of my TT's years ago over a blown tire. But do I own one? No I don't. Time to smarten up. Thanks for this.

RE: Old rig picture

Where are you wanting to delete it from? Where is the picture?

RE: Damage while moving

What did he hit? Someone else's personal property? Is there someone out there looking for a vehicle involved in a hit and run? I would never allow a stranger with only a phone number to touch my RV. I doubt you will get satisfaction. An expensive lesson for you.

RE: 12 v water pump possessed?

One of my rigs had a petcock to shut off city water from the inside. If you have one and it's open, then water could be shooting out. However, there should be a check valve in the city water connection that does not allow back flow. Maybe check that too.

RE: New Truck!!

I cant get the photos to post. I will be happy to send them to someone who can lol Some of us would love to see the pics of your new truck. I know I would! Here is what I do. I open a second tab in my browser and load this. This link has provisions to point to the picture on your computer. Click Select and it will give you the menu to choose and upload the pic. Then it will give you the URL to copy. Copy that as it is given and simply paste the whole thing into your post. I like doing it in a separate tab because you can have the post open you are posting the pics in, and you can have the above URL open in another to upload as many as you want to post. If that doesn't work for you, send them to me and I will be happy to do it for you. PM me. And yes, off topic indeed.

RE: RV Rebuild Website - Online soon - Input?

Another update: I have been seriously working on my site over the past while, after not touching it for a few weeks. I am spending 2-3 hours about 5 evenings a week and have also put in entire days on some weekends. It is definitely a huge pile of work for sure. It takes a while to organize everything, write little descriptions for each picture, and to also post them in some meaningful sequence. I have it broken down into sections, starting at the beginning of course, and establishing a progression of the work. I currently have 9 pages. That could change. I have also learned that I can have a blog as 1 of my pages too. I'll likely do that later after launching the site. The whole thing will have no glitz and razzle dazzle. It is plain, simple and factual. Wix has a provision for formatting it for portable devices. That's a whole other pile of work to do too once I get it built for desktop computers. What looks good on a desktop can be a mess on a mobile. I would say I have the bulk of it about 75% done. I really didn't think it would be this much work. But the site is way more elaborate and detailed than my original one from 15 years ago was. And I'm sure that once its launched, I will get feedback that this or that does not display properly. I am a novice, but eager to learn. I enjoy the work a lot.

RE: Screws backing out

Further to the good advice above, I would ask why they are coming out, and why they are stripped. That could be a red flag. Pull a few right out and look at the threads. They should be clean and metal color. But if they are blackened or rusty, you have a water leak problem. The screws are coming out because the wood is wet and rotting and no longer holds the screw.

RE: Teach me about solar

There is a most excellent thread that CA Traveler put up about 6 years ago regarding members solar installations. He did a great job of compiling a lot of solar info and putting it all in one thread. I subscribed to it so I could read and learn more for when I do my own TT. Check it out here. This will keep you out of mischief for a while.... :W:W

RE: Sliding Storage Tray

I've thought about that myself. There are long sliding extensions available for a variety of applications. The thing that stopped me was the reduction in usable space it would bring. The storage bay door is smaller than the compartment and the drawer has to fit that opening. You lose a lot of storage area.

RE: Back before cellphones

A week and a half ago we were walking around the Lake Minniwanka park area (Across the highway from Banff). We had our cameras, capturing shots of the area and I spotted this! Thinking of this thread, I just had to take a picture of it. And yes, I walked over to it and lifted the handset. It was working, I got a dialtone.

RE: Back before cellphones

I recently found some post cards I had sent to parents 65 years ago. I was 15 and took off hitch hiking around the country. You could do that in the 1950s. Parents didn't have a phone so once in a while I sent a post card. Here I sit with an I-12 and wonder if anyone sends post cards anymore Whats a postcard? :W :W I tried buying some postcards about 9 years ago to send to a friend (long story) I had a heck of a time even finding them.

RE: Train vs Motorhome

Many years ago before DH flipped the axle on the TT every time we would go into Geneva, Ohio he would go really slow and try to find the best spot to go over RR tracks, cross them, stop and I would jump out. He would pull into the Winery that is right near the tracks, I would run out and get the cover for the thing that holds the dump hoses and put it back on. Then we would decide if we would go into the winery or not. Simple equation for that: Stop, examine TT for damage. If no damage, continue trip. If damage, visit winery! :B

RE: Train vs Motorhome

Any experienced forum member can tell it was the salesman's fault. Yup, I can hear it now! "This baby can outrun, outpace, and dodge any train"

RE: Passenger headlight inop but bulb and DC power present

:h Hmmm.... Doesn't sound logical does it? What you have done for testing it is all good. Theoretically it should work. Especially if you have 12V and provided an alternate ground. Does this system have the provision that many newer vehicles have for shutting off a headlight when you turn the signal light on? If so, I wonder if its possible that has anything to do with it. Perhaps a malfunction in there....

RE: what voltage for the 'house'?

Great article Don, thanks for posting. I like the SXS comparison in easy to understand language. I have been following solar and optimum configurations for a while, wanting to learn more, as we want to build an off grid support system for our Tango. This article helps a lot. Not a cheap venture at 4500 bucks for a battery! I'm sure the price will come down as more things like this become widespread in use. Good stuff. :)

RE: Chasing music festivals

Having looked for the same thing myself, I did a search for "Concerts Southern Alberta" and it returned a number of possible places to look including a page on that showed a variety of shows for every genre of music. There are other returns for that search that show different venues, what acts are coming there etc.
