RE: Destroying a truck

I was referred to, and viewed a youtube video on how to repair the door for our dishwasher. Very good demonstration, then following the video, took ours apart and replaced the lock and reassembled. very simple, very quick, and saved an expensive service call. So youtube does have some good uses.

DW used to groom and show poodles. Haven't been to a barber shop in the last 2o-30- years.

RE: jacks up or down

Ours is stored in the drive with the jacks down to level it. We do spray the pistons with grease occasionally to help keep water off.

RE: Reservations cancelled

Politicians eel that they can make a big point of doing something by closing campgrounds, and not offend too many in their own voting area. Big news, little use.

RE: Flatulence causing CO/Propane detector alarm?

At least in my youth, I had enough sense not to try it, but I can confirm that farts ARE flammable. Sometimes with amazing results. It can cause severe burns, but I have not seen more than a slight scorching. In our RV, the detector is right outside the bathroom, and it does go off occasionally. IF your detector is going off often, you probably need to look at the manufacture and installation dates. They do need to be replaced occasionally.

RE: US Closes Mexican and Canadian borders

If its just that easy to stop illegals from coming across the border, why do we need a Wall?? Just tell them the law says they can't cross. If you get stranded in Mexico. just follow the crowd and come on across through one of the tunnels.

RE: Senior Citizens Speak Up

Actually, many who can "afford" an RV, have problems affording private RV rates. Especially those of us on fixed income, with no hope of annual raises. Many have sold their equity in a fixed home purchase an RV home, many for economic reason, expecting lower costs than that of a fixed home.

RE: Floe Drain Down System

Seems like a lot of unnecessary expense and effort for something that is so easy to do with what you have. All you really need is an inexpensive source of low pressure air. Personally, I feel a lot safer with filling all the pipes with pink stuff, and draining the water heater. I do like to open all drains ahead of time and drain as much as will, su that I do not have to flush water into the holding tanks. Usully I have enough overflow of pink to take care of the holding tanks. One word of caution, with either or ANY system, do not forget the drain traps!! Draining or blowing will NOT get the water out there. Use enough pink down the drains to make sure!!!

RE: Wash service for Motor home, Virginia

Actually, the best deal I ever got was a High school baseball team trying to make money to go to a tourney. Bunch of kids with hoses, brushes and suds.. and adult leaders to supervise the fun.

RE: Coronavirus practical issues

From most of the replys, looks like too many have missed the whole point. If you are solo in an RV, and in most any RV campground, private or public, call out to one of your neighbors. With most RVers, all you need do is ask, or just let someone know, and most will do whatever is needed to get assistance for you. That is just the way most RVers are. If the folks in your campground are not the type that will, you are in the wrong campground.

RE: Chesapeake Bay bridge and tunnel Maryland

Be sure and carry a good bit of cash for the toll. Our first time we didn't think about it, and expected to use a credit card if it was higher than we expected. Which did NOT work, they would not take anything but CASH, which we did not have. Pulled off into the parking area, detatched toad, drove back to where we could find an ATM, got cash. got back, cleaned out piggy banks and laundry change, many pennies, put it all in a sack, then pulled back to toll booth. Gave the the sack of change, told them to take however much they needed, while we blocked the toll booth (at rush hour). paid the balance of a few dollars from cash I had just gotten, and went on our merry way. Every since, I carry a few rolls of toll booth quarters, and avoid toll roads whenever possible. As far as the bridge, just watch out for high winds, which is the biggest danger there.

RE: Thor Tuscany - water is hot everywhere but the shower!

Sounds like you have the water heater bypassed for winterizing. Check you winter bypass valves.

RE: Alternator power

Thanks everybody. Just what I wanted to know. I was musing about water power rig and batteries for off-grid, and have found LOTS of information and how-tos on internet once I started looking in the right places. Looks very possible, but not for me any longer. I just let TVA do it all for me.

RE: Adding a 2nd Battery?

My classA has three. One for the engine and chassis, two in parallel for the coach. Only problem is the cost, on our last trip, one of the coach batteries blew up, so I replaced both at the same time. Very high capacity deep discharge monsters. OUCH!!!

Alternator power

While I sit here with my mind drifting in places where it probably shouldn't, I have come up with a question that someone may be able to answer for me. How much power (horsepower), does an average automotive alternator need to maintain a charge on a 12v battery bank at a reasonable rate?? As the regulator and conversion is provided within the alternator, would any other regulation or control be needed. Would it be practical to use an auto alternator attached to a water power turbine to maintain a 12v battery bank?? Has anyone done it successfully?? To provide some power for an off-grid RV location in particular??
