RE: I'm so bored

Self-Isolation Quarantine Diary (How to pass the time): Day 1 - I Can Do This!! Got enough food and wine to last a month! Day 2 - Opening my 8th bottle of Wine. I fear wine supplies might not last! Day 3 - Strawberries: Some have 210 seeds, some have 235 seeds. Who Knew?? Day 4 - 8:00pm. Removed my Day Pajamas and put on my Night Pajamas. Day 5 - Today, I tried to make Hand Sanitizer. It came out as Jello Shots!! Day 6 - I get to take the Garbage out. I'm So excited, I can't decide what to wear. Day 7 - Laughing way too much at my own jokes!! Day 8 - Went to a new restaurant called "The Kitchen". You have to gather all the ingredients and make your own meal. I have No clue how this place is still in business. Day 9 - I put liquor bottles in every room. Tonight, I'm getting all dressed up and going Bar hopping. Day 10 - Struck up a conversation with a Spider today. Seems nice. He's a Web Designer. Day 11 - Isolation is hard. I swear my fridge just said, "What the hell do you want now?" Day 12 - I realized why dogs get so excited about something moving outside, going for walks or car rides. I think I just barked at a squirrel. Day 13 - If you keep a glass of wine in each hand, you can't accidentally touch your face. Day 14 - Watched the birds fight over a worm. The Cardinals lead the Blue Jays 3-1. Day 15 - Anybody else feel like they've cooked dinner about 395 times this month.

RE: New Cell Phone Choice

Addressing the OP: I bought a couple of Galaxy S7 in April 2017 used off eBay for about $300 apiece at the time. They were in perfect condition even though the seller rated them at 9/10. I've been completely happy with both of them. The wife was a newbie to smart phones at the time but now I can't get her off FB with all her friends. I love the camera! Especially the "panoramic" feature that lets me start at one side of a scene and sweep in any direction up to 360 degrees (it gets a little messy and confusing if you go past 360). I've got a hot spot that runs over its 15Gb high speed data by the 10th of the month. If the throttled speed is too slow to do what I need to do or if I don't have the hotspot with me, I'll switch on the phone's hotspot feature and continue on using it. I've thought about upgrading but why would I want to? The camera meets all my needs and I've all the apps I could ever want at my finger tips. I added a 32Gb micro SD card to store my pictures as the built-in memory can't handle a lot of images from the camera - like I have stored on the SD card. Here;s a link to an eBay search for the Samsung Galaxy S7: I see the price way down from what I paid 3 years ago making them an excellent choice. I've never had any problems with either phone. I use this horizontal case: And keep the phone in one of these: I found a glass screen protector for $1 at Dollar Tree. If I were to take the covers off the phones today, there wouldn't be a mark on them. I highly recommend the Samsung Galaxy S7. Don't get sucked into any of the 5G hype for the next several years till after the providers build out their networks. I doubt if you'll ever be able to get 5G service while boondocking in the desert at Quartzsite. The range on 5G tower isn't nearly as good as 4G/LTE towers.

RE: Artificial Grass Green Outdoor Area Rug

Lowes and HD carry it on a roll. Just tell them how much you want. I'd get smaller sections. A 12x24 is going to be hard to handle.

RE: I'm so bored

Doing what we're doing is a lot better than being on the front lines of this national disaster so be thankful for that. This truly is a war and the health care workers are on the front line saving as many lives as they can. When I hear they're going into battle with reused unsterile equipment risking their lives, it makes me cry. We should be better than that. I don't care for being cooped up either but feel like I'm doing my part to prevent the spread of enemy and preventing a spike that would put the burden on health care workers to decide who lives and who is left to die. No one should be put in that position so I'm doing what I can. There's plenty to do around here if I could get my butt off the couch and get at it. Maybe tomorrow I'll feel like getting after that project I've been putting off for the past year. It's too cold this week to paint so I'm off the hook on painting the house for now.

RE: Entrance steps won't go out

I've seen several say they had a bad ground on the steps. Try pulling on the bottom step when you open the door and hear the click. It might need a little help. If that works, oil the heck out of it.

RE: Help: winegard pathway x1

If you're not hearing the antenna buzzing and clicking as it attempts to locate the satellites, there's something wrong with it. It could be it's not getting power through the cord. If you can find another receiver to test it with a different (short) cord right at the dish, you'll have eliminated a lot of troubleshooting steps. While I was troubleshooting mine (based on information I got in emails from Winegard's tech support), I had the cover off and testing for voltage on the circuit boards. They will guide you through it.

RE: Entrance steps won't go out

Yep, if the motor runs after tapping it with a hammer, the brushes are worn and the motor should be replaced. The motor assembly came for a 90's model Ford. If you'd share the model of your steps, someone will let you know the part number to ask for at an autoparts store or

RE: Help: winegard pathway x1

Winegard will work with you to diagnose the problem via email from their website. I had to send my CarryOut back to them for repair - they will not sell you any parts. I was in the local UPS store and asked what it would cost to send a 2 cu ft box to Davenport IA from St Louis. They said $72 as I remember. Next stop was the Post Office where they said $27 for the same box. That's the way I sent it. When it came back it was in box that measured 23"x23"x17" and their cost was $17. They charge $70 up front for troubleshooting. They'll probably sell you a new cord (they always do). One of the controller boards was bad - they replaced the bad components - cost from them was less than $5. I was amazed someone today actually repairs circuit boards at the component level.

RE: Water Heater Gas Supply Line

The tubing size is 3/8". The new heater probably has a 3/8" male flare connection meaning you'll need tubing with a 3/8" flare nut and flare at the end of the tubing. You'll need someway of connecting the original tubing to the replacement unless you have enough tubing left after you cut off the old connecting nut.

RE: Water Heater Gas Supply Line

It doesn't sound like you've ever worked with tubing before. You'll need tubing cutter and flaring tool and maybe a tube bender. You can bend the tubing as needed but if you're not familiar with it, you could kink it and have to start over after cutting off the kinked section and adding a new piece on. If you don't have the tools, get in touch with propane dealer and see if they can help you.

RE: Crack in ball valve

This search on Amazon shows a lot of parts for the 310 including the ball/gate flush valve: Here's a link to the 310/320 PDF manual: I see several YouTube videos for 310: Exactly what part is not replaceable? height=400

RE: Crack in ball valve

I'm so thankful to learn this now. I've been looking at these for a couple of years thinking the steep sides were ideal. I never found one in bone for a price I was willing to pay so I kept passing them by. Now, I'm happy I never bought one. What were they thinking?

RE: Bit of a health care rant

At one time I had a doctor that bounced back and forth while he was seeing me like someone that had to pee. He never had time to sit down and talk me to. I tried to call him about something but his staff said he wasn't available to talk on the phone and I'd need to make an appointment to see him. I made the appointment and arrived a few minutes early as usual. After waiting 45 minutes past the scheduled time, I told the nurse my time had a value too and left. They refunded the co-pay I had to anti-up when I checked in and I immediately switched to another doctor and have never regretted it.

RE: Fireplace removal and repurposing space

I had one in our previous MH. We got more use out of it than any other appliance bar none. RVs don't hold the heat so when the sun goes down and the temps go down, we turned on the fireplace to keep it comfortable. Liked the ambiance too. If you want to remove it, there's nothing to it. Take out the screws on the sides and pull it out. You'll find a cord plugged into an outlet behind it. Plug the cord and pick up the fireplace. At least that's how it was on my unit.

RE: leaking sunroof

The OP hasn't given us a clue about what brand/model sunroof we're try to give advice about but if they want to tape it up permanently, I'd vote for Eternabond from I found out years ago that if I parked my HHR (w/sunroof) nose up in the driveway, I'd have trouble with moisture inside. If on the other hand I parked it facing down slope (my driveway's not that steep) I've had no problem since. Works for me.

RE: Rebuilding my eu2000i... (never did this before)

Three things are important - compression, spark and fuel. Even if they don't arrive when they should, it should at least backfire if they're all present. You should have checked the compression before you took it apart. Did it have a good hot spark? Was the plug wet with gasoline?
