RE: MiFi/Verizon

MiFi Jetpack Isn't that 4G? Did Verizon disable support for it, or did you turn it off? Pretty sure I have one somewhere.

RE: Rhinoflex... Not what it used to be

Considering something like 20% return DEFECTIVE items, that leaves 80% of the **** and cheap products' sales the mfr gets to keep. Is it right? Nope. Is it honorable? Nope. Is it profitable? Yep. Guess which one will prevail....

RE: Salt, Rust, and the value of a diesel engine

Another strategy that may help either choice would be an annual wash down and treatment with something like FLUIDFILM. A lot of work to properly cover all the spots and inside box frames and such. Well worth having a professional do it. Shouldn't be too much once per year and definitely helps preserve your investment. Let us know what you choose and good luck!

RE: Friday Funny - nice home-built

Creatively simple. All the wiring and base appliances and amenities would be in the truck camper part. Seriously gotta look at the weight issue on the axle and tires, though. As for a cabin (park in a mostly fixed spot), it's AWESOME! Windows look big enough to hunt out of ;)

RE: Friday Funny - nice home-built

Are those the new 7k lbs rating per tire from Goodyear?

RE: Getting stuck in sand

Oh- I'll add this. Ford 4x4 trucks usually have ability to MANUALLY turn front hubs in, clockwise. Make sure your 4x4 works BEFORE you need it ;)

RE: Getting stuck in sand

Dessert sand? Others have mentioned a lot of good advice. I'll add a few things. 1. Safety in (smart) numbers. Qualified and experienced off road drivers 2. Minimum 3 vehicles, each able to pull the other 1 on 1. 3. Each vehicle carries recovery and survival gear. 4. Each vehicle sufficient condition and space to carry ALL PASSENGERS in an emergency. Know what stuff you might need to keep with you in case of injury/danger bugout. 5. Fluids. Water, trans fluid, oil, fuel. 6. Know WHEN to abandon a vehicle. Expensive tows or long recovery hours with help is a whole lot better than life-threatening survival mode ;) 7. When possible, try not to be the smartest, most experienced, or best prepared person on the trip. If you can bring someone who knows MORE, do it ;) 8. Be medically prepared with supplies and gear. I've set joints and done minor surgery (to avoid potentially life threatening or permanent damage) on survival style trips, recently in fact ;) 9. Bring your Can-Do, Let's-have-fun attitude and leave anyone without it at home ;) Have fun!

RE: Dometic stove, one burner not working

Don't need or want your advice. It isn't helpful, including your inaccurate, inappropriate comment about the dealer, especially since Dometic was directly involved. Welcome new member. Looks like you are getting off to a rough start here. Maybe this will help. 1. Most people here are trying to help and offer suggestions freely. 2. Doug happens to be one of our veteran PROs and is quite generous with his professional advice and extensive experience. Hard to find better. We have some others who are also professionals on RVs and you'll get to know who they are if you hang around long enough 3. It is customary to tell you things you may already know. Until we know YOUR level of knowledge, it serves as a starting point to get to a (hopefully) solution 4. Be patient and friendly. Being snippy...well, you may find yourself posting to a very quiet audience. 5. It is also customary and polite to report back WHAT you did to fix it. We have given our time to read, consider, and respond as we felt qualified and compelled to your request for help. So take a deep breath. Sit back and take a load off and enjoy the camping/RV related discussions. Enjoy your time here, we hope you add to the positive experiences ;)

RE: Campsite security

I haven't heard anything about what the CAMPGROUND OWNER is doing about the theft and danger in his campground? If you are friends with the owner and other 'regulars' I can understand why you want to stick with him and figure out a way to resist/combat the problem. Maybe he can build a FENCE to make it inconvenient to cross and more inconvenient to traverse with goods in tow for the perpetrators? If you feel compelled, you can take cases of bottled water and put on the other side of the fence. Lots of options, depending how deeply you want to become involved and the amount of exposure you desire. Good luck and keep us updated!

RE: Unfortunate report on new Ram

OP...when deciding to accept less than a new engine, ask this question: If you were truck shopping, would you BUY and pay FULL PRICE for a truck that had a "rebuilt" engine in it, instead of new, at 500 miles? Or would you RUN AWAY? Why should YOU as the customer take that hit on resale? The VIN of that truck will be permanently tagged with that info and show up on reports of work done on that truck. Good luck and keep us posted ;)

RE: Scotty Kilmer says the EcoDiesel is the Worst Diesel Ever

6.0's are fine once you replace the stretchy headbolts and fix the EGR. The 5.7 was a gas motor converted to diesel. No comparison They are both diesel engines right? Yea... its a direct comparison. I'm sure a couple of changes to the Ecodiesel would make it better in some people's eyes, just like the 6.0. 6.0? "Oil Cooler" Be sure to add a coolant filter, or you quickly get to tear it down from the top and replace the likely-to-be-plugged finned cooler ;)

RE: 240 AC Stick Some Of These Near Your Electrical Box

A lot of "capable but not electrical expert" folks here. It would be helpful if you post an installed wiring diagram ;)

Webcam and an Internet connection, you're an expert in anything. Add a Facebook account and you'll KNOW everything, too! LOL.

RE: The great slide vs no slide debate

It seems the solo or couples campers are the ones who don't feel they need a slide. Makes sense. But with more people, we need more room. No single-file tunnel life for us! LOL

RE: The great slide vs no slide debate

We live in earthquake country, hence our home was built with maximum shear strength walls. An RV is subject to a continuous earthquake each time it is going down the road. One or more large rectangular holes in it's walls for slides is a compromise in wall shear strength. We do not have slides for the above reason. Wow. First time I've heard "earthquakes" blamed for not wanting a slide, LOL. We're not S-T-R-E-T-C-H-I-N-G a bit, now are we? Haha!

RE: Class A in pieces after accident, Ellensburg

Hold solid, small adjustments, avoid what you can, put the 'meat' (strongest points of the frame) where you need it. Pray. No guarantees. Prayers for the family and all affected.

RE: So. Backed into a tree.

So I'm thinkin / hoping that all I need to do it recaulk. I've seen tape, rawhide, vines and nails- all kinds of stuff, but I've never seen a limb reattached with caulking! ;) Just kidding. Hope your damage isn't too bad!
