RE: Hitch Mounted Cargo Carriers

I'd think you'll get a LOT of side to side wobble on such a wide carrier...... be prepared for that.

RE: Bad capacitors in my rear TV!!

The badly manufactured capacitors was a worldwide issue many years ago, effecting reliability and longevity all kinds of electronics. However, it was discovered and the flawed manufacturing was corrected long ago. I doubt it could be an issue on any relatively recent appliance. Capacitor Plague

RE: Why do I need a DC to DC charger?

Regarding the Smart Charger on the Ford Transit 350 HD diesel RV platform......it is not so smart. It was designed to charge the engine/chassis battery 'smartly'. However when RV manufacturers hook up the house battery system to it ( through the battery solenoid ), the Smart charger becomes less smart......it does not know when to drop the high charge rate down to normal float voltages.....it continues to pump out 14.7 volts all day long. On long trips this is harmful to the batteries which are being constantly subjected to Bulk charge voltages long after they had reached full charge. Personally I installed a switch to my Battery solenoid to disable connection of my house battery bank from the alternator.....to protect ALL my AGM batteries.

RE: Dirty water in toilet bowl after sitting

Not related to the OP's question, but I would suggest keeping a little water in the toilet bowl to help prevent the seals from drying out.....

RE: Registering an out-of-state purchace

I believe most Oregon DMV offices are open, albeit with COVID restrictions....reservations usually required. Most registration issues can be done on-line. You might take a good look at the Oregon DMV website. To remain legal you do need to get hour RV to Oregon before the Washington permit expires. Once in Oregon I suspect things to be a bit more forgiving if you don't get registered quickly......call or contact them Their customer is pretty good.

RE: Upgrading to a better phone

RobWNY, that's exactly what I'm asking. I don't know the difference between a Samsung S series and the A series. All I want is a reliable phone with decent battery life, camera and storage. Oh yeah, and ease of use. What is the difference between the A series and the S series? Other than price? If you're looking for a Samsung smartphone, you can choose from different series. The Samsung Galaxy S models are the high-end devices. In the Galaxy A series, you have both mid-range and more affordable devices (the old J series). The higher the number after the A, the better the device is.Aug 5, 2020

RE: Buying from private party in California

Sales tax is never collected on private sales. But you probably need to get a temporary registration or permit to drive the vehicle on California roads until you reach AZ.

RE: Dish Network receiver question

Why focus on Hoppers and Wallys? There are lots of still new or used previous generation receivers out there. Up until a few years ago I had a basic H11 receiver.....just plugged a 1TB hard disk into it for DVR.....and there are a number of older Dish DVRs available. I just added my receiver to my home account as an RV receiver.....Dish was perfectly agreeable with that.

RE: Solar

3M VHB Heavy Duty double sided mounting tape, #4950 is highly recommended. Clean surfaces well, use tape, and when mounts are done and in place, cover with Dicor to protect edges of tapd from sun and weather.

RE: Map App for Phone...?

Google Maps is likely the leader in good general maps, with lots of good search features. If you are primarily interested in road and traffic issues, then also get Waze for that.

RE: Sticky situation

Fiberglass, when long worn and weather/sun deteriorated will look like a fabric. I'd go with mineral spirits, as previously suggested.

RE: Class B or B+ recommendations?

There are lots of C's of all sizes without a bunk over the cab.....

RE: Class B or B+ recommendations?

There is no such thing as a B+. I wish RV salesmen would quit using this false term. A class B is build in a Van. A class C is built on a CUTAWAY chassis. Period!

RE: Microsoft Outlook

2Oldman - I would suspect the original poster is using an email client for the same reasons I do (using MS Outlook 7). I want the ability to read, write, and edit my emails without the necessity of being connected to the Internet. Also, I like the features available in Outlook that I don't find in the other newer clients I have briefly tried. My Outlook 7 continues to work great on my Windows 10 PC.
