RE: Looks like we got ourselves a Convoy

The requirement of having truckers vaccinated before they can cross the border in both directions to delivery goods to both countries.

RE: Longer term answer for Rust in fridge burner

Cover the burner up and remove the roof vent to access the flue tube and use a wire brush with a long wire handle. (These are available at HVAC supply houses). Push and pull the brush up and down a few hundred times to remove the rust. ;) What do you do about the spiral baffle??????????????? Doug Once the roof vent is off, lift up the spiral baffle and clean it off.

RE: 3d printers for making stuff for the RV

Having read the last link and that there are places to do the printing, how would a person get/make the file to make those window covers? Would you need the actual product before you could make more or how? You need a 3d model. Basically you need to start out with something like a CAD drawing in 3d, there are special 3d handheld scanners that can also be used if you already have a physical item you want to make copies of. So, draw the design, create or render into a 3d model then to print the output must go through a slicing software that cuts the 3d model into to printing layers.. HERE is a good primer on 3d printing.. Thanks, much appreciated.

RE: Mystery Battery Draw While Parked UPDATE

Just a stab, I don't suppose any of you have one of those electronic anti rust devices. My neighbour had a 2011 GM and it would drain batteries after 3-4 days, once he found where it was attached and connected, he threw it far, far away, it was rusted worse than a 1990's ford.

RE: 3d printers for making stuff for the RV

At one time, MaxxAir made a line of "Window/Maxx" window covers that allowed sliding RV windows to be opened without letting in rain. https://i.imgur.com/RaM4xT4l.jpg Even though they aren't being manufactured any more, they're still in high demand on the used market. This is something that could probably be 3D-printed - perhaps even in customer-specified lengths for an exact fit. (The original MaxxAir design required some trimming to fit most windows). That would be a product I would buy, the old trailer had the wind out widows that could be left open a couple inches in the rain, not the new sliders.

RE: Is this forum dying?

How about it's cold out for the majority of the continent. Looking for -20F for a couple nights.

RE: Aftermarket heated steering wheel?

How about a 12v electric car heater? About 150w of heat. Mount on steering column and blow heat up to the steering wheel. Similar to this: https://www.amazon.com/Portable-Cigarette-Adjustable-Demister-Defroster/dp/B09LHXRVPP/ref=sr_1_4_sspa?keywords=12+volt+car+heater&qid=1641178876&sr=8-4-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEyOE9CTjBBTUpWUkUzJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwNTA1Mjc3Mks0TEtFMURLSUwxMyZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwMTkyMTI4M1ZRWk5XTFcyUFJLUCZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNwX2F0ZiZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU= They are a complete waste of time. I bought one a couple weeks ago, similar model, ended up returning it. After running for about 10 minutes at 32F/0C, there was about as much heat coming out of there as a mouse fart would make. Think of it as a small fan blowing over a 150 watt bulb, try it if you don't believe. Now you have to figure out a way to move the little heater around to get the whole steering wheel.

RE: How to prevent Keirig from freezing??

You would lose that bet. There are videos of how to fully drain a Keurig. It is not a simple process. You're right, I just dismantled one to see the inner workings after it quit. Seemed like it was the pump that crapped out, but even turning it upside down and all other directions, about 1/2 cut of water remained inside.

RE: Camper basically chopped in half by tree

I wonder if the truck frame may be bent too.

He's not hiding, he had to get a second job to pay for gas. Like trying to pull a train with a washing machine motor.

Whoops, didn't notice the date.

RE: GMC Ecotech engine

It's a 4 cylinder although after it starts to grenade, it may become a 3. Not recommended. http://shiftinglanes.com/2016/12/chevys-new-1-5l-engines-are-melting-themselves/

RE: Norcold Fridge Depth?

2112 has an 8 cu ft (N8xx) refrigerator, I have a smaller 6 cu ft (N6xxx) refrigerator. For some reason I have a plethora of empty cardboard tubes and scotch tape right now. So I made up a quick depth gauge by scotch taping a toothpick to a cardboard tube and closed the door. Closing the door pushes the toothpick back along the tube so that the length can be measured when you open the door back up. https://i.imgur.com/3gDVfQn.jpg height=300 Ingenious. Nice work.

When all else fails, use a different platter that fits.

RE: Advice on Toy Hauler Selection

Within the last few years durability and quality control are a complete disaster. Go and inspect before even thinking of buying and bring along a couple extra set of eyes. Everything shiny and new can cloud a buyers vision that will most likely bite you in the cheeks down the road. Everything from non connected receptacles, loose water fittings, wood chips in the fresh water tank and water heater and piping, lack of caulking in the shower, missing or improperly caulked windows. Windows not installed level inn the openings, screws stripped holding window frames together, etc, etc. It's a real poop show. Bring an ladder and make sure to check the roof and all seals too. Fore warned is fore armed.

Aluminum Ion Batteries

This might punch a hole in Li Ion Batteries if it comes to production and a lot safer by the sounds. https://graphenemg.com/energy-storage-solutions/aluminum-ion-battery/

RE: Charging Battery with Solar Panel

1. On my Coleman it's only connected to the battery, 2 extra wires that come out where all the other wires are at the battery. 2. Depending on your battery(ies), 100 watt would be fine. Don't forget to add the charge controller in before the battery connection. 3. Whatever size cable that comes with the solar panel will work. Check on the video to see if this is the same input receptacle. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yxYGaQX5GSQ If it's the same receptacle you need this plug, check prices on line. https://www.zampsolar.com/products/portable-panel-furrion-cable-adapter
