RE: Email digest for subscribed threads?

That's kinda what I was thinking, but thought I'd ask with the barest glimmer of hope. :)

Email digest for subscribed threads?

On many other forums I frequent, when I subscribe to a thread I have the option of getting an email for every new message or a daily digest or sometimes a weekly digest. I only see the "email for every new post" option here, is that just the way it is, or am I missing the "stop spamming my inbox!" button? :) Thanks! CC

RE: Recs for Solar Cut Off Switch?

Little disconnect switch I found it amusing that this "Little" switch is listed with dimensions of 48x36x48 inches in the Amazon technical details. But it is only 9.1 oz... I bet it floats well. :)

RE: Help and Advice on a badly placed 5th wheel

Somewhere in this multipage novel the OP mentioned Rockport, TX. ... which as I look at a map, explains the comment about really sandy & usually wet. :) CC

RE: Who says I need to take up space for a Gooseneck Hitch!

Seems to be working, what's the problem? :)

RE: Short box dually?

If you're concerned about recommended weights & COG locations, etc. Swing by your local ram dealer. They'll have a book EVERY configuration of Wheelbase, engine, trim level and the recommended locations for COG & weight limits. I picked one up at my dealer when I was buying my truck. The 2018 version is about paperback book size & 1/2" thick. I'd expect they'd be able to give you either an old book for a '16, or pull up the info somehow. CC

RE: Clean Water Heater

Last year I decided to do a vinegar soak on my water heater since I could see a lot of scale in the bottom of the tank. I think I used too much vinegar though - didn't dilute it much, and let it sit overnight. Imagine my surprise the next day when my anode rod was about half gone (was a new one that year)! I flushed all the vinegar out (the tank was nice and clean!) and thought all was well. I thought I flushed everything good enough with copious amounts of water, but should have neutralized the vinegar also - now my external water heater area where the vinegar ran out/over it is a little rusty. I'm chalking that up to the vinegar reacting with the metal & promoting corrosion. Oh well, live and learn! CC

RE: Black Water Tank Missing Capacity

Can you get to the outside of the tank to do some measurements? If so, you can calculate the approx. capacity. If you're getting less than that, it could be "stuff" or an air bubble like was mentioned. CC

RE: Can you recommend me a high temperature tape?

Just a thought, maybe use your foil tape & poke a hole in it every so often for breathability. It would certainly reduce the amount of dust that travels in & out going from a large gap to a few small holes. CC

RE: finally fixed it

I love it when you can find a definitive root cause & fix it without replacing a whole unit. Good job! CC

RE: Backing up a trailer like a boss

Wait a minute, I thought you needed an F450 to tow a trailer?!?

RE: Mosquitos

Mix a large bottle of blue mouthwash,epsom salt, and stale beer in a pump up sprayer and spray liberally area the campsite. Works for flys also I'm just trying to figure out how someone came up with this formula :) Not saying it will not work. Google for Paul Harvey mosquito repellent. That's where my mom got it from. I've heard "cheap" beer, hadn't heard the stale part. She says it works, I've never actually tried it. CC

RE: What was the biggest flub on a trip?

I keep remembering the time that we missed a cucumber in the fridge door compartment during the final cleanout of the fall. Cucumbers degrade into interesting parts in a closed fridge over the late fall/winter/early spring... Yuck. Or backing the trailer up to the fence, but forgot that the bike rack was still on the trailer adding about 3 feet to the length. Forunately, just broke a couple of cedar pickets & bent the bike rack a bit. Shoulda had a spotter on that one I guess. Good times! CC

RE: “Service Temporarily Unavailable”

I got it 3 times while trying to open this thread. Most times a refresh fixes it, sometimes 2 refreshes - this is the first time for 3 that I noticed. the F5 key is refresh, so it's quick to stab that button when I see the message (quicker for me than navigating to the GUI button with the mouse) CC

RE: Finding the Missing Cursor

If I lose my mouse cursor, I will usually give it a couple of spins up and to the left. That will put the cursor in the upper left corner of the monitor (or one of the monitors on Multiple screen setups). Upper left allows the arrow part of the cursor to be on the screen when in the corner. Any other corner will allow the arrow to be off the screen & invisible except for the point which you probably can't see. Win 10 seems to have small "stops" between monitors at the top & bottom, so it'll get stuck in one of screen the corners. At least that way, I only have to look in 2 places on a 2 monitor system for the mouse. Usually I can see it zip up to a corner during the movement anyway, so then I know where it is. CC

RE: $hitty situation for me

According to the Plasti Mend link above, PE can only be properly fixed with a plastic welder. I'm not sure of the best way to determine what you have, maybe use standard ABS plumbing stuff & try to stick a small fitting or piece of ABS to the side of the tank. If it doesn't stay stuck, it's probably not ABS. :) I've got this stuff in my garage, so it'd be a cheap test for me. I know not everybody's a packrat though. I wonder if the harbor freight plastic welders will do PE, or if they're any good? Good Luck! CC

RE: Idaho State Parks

Huh. Scrolling further down - who would a thunk! I swear I looked all over for that info. Thanks!

RE: Idaho State Parks

Ok, I submit! I re-reread the fees page from the link you quote, and it does say: Current Idaho RV Registration Holders Reservation fees are waived for Idaho residents who have current, valid Idaho RV registration stickers. Reservation fees for these customers are paid for by a grant from the Idaho RV Program. Proof of registration is required at time of arrival. And... Note: Prices below do not include MVEF (Motor Vehicle Entrance Fee), prices in the high end of range include additional fees for popular destination parks, premium camp sites and non-residents. Discounts may apply for MVEF or Idaho Residents. but danged if I can find any place that specifies how much those fees are, and I'm not gonna create an out of state profile on Reserve America to find out! Thanks for setting me straight. I still hope you all had a good time! :) CC
