RE: Drill Holster (tip)

A built in place for the charger would be more useful as I don't have an outlet in the underbelly. When I get around to it, I'm going to fish an extension cord down there so I can leave the battery connected and charging. Our water heater is in one side of the pass through storage. It had a single receptacle for the heater, but I replaced it with a duplex and use the other for a drill battery charger.

RE: Diluted RV Antifreeze

Just bring along 2-3 extra gallons of rv antifreeze and use that to flush until you get south far enough.

RE: Can you retreat gas with stabil to extend protection?

We usually spend the summers in Michigan and upon returning to Florida in the fall I fill the tank up (75 gallons) and treat the gas with stabil and it is good until the late Spring when it is time to travel. This year due the pandemic we cancelled our plans to travel North and I am concerned that the gas is reaching the 12 month protection limit stated on the bottle and would like to know if there is any proven ways to safely extend the fuel protection for another 12 months? Thanks From the Stabil FAQ: I HAVE SOME GAS IN A TANK THAT HAS BEEN THERE MORE THAN 2 MONTHS. WILL STA-BIL® FUEL STABILIZER MAKE THIS OLD GAS LIKE NEW? No, STA-BIL®Fuel Stabilizer will not restore or improve old gasoline. It will, however, stop it from degrading further. The best thing to do is treat the fuel with STA-BIL® brand as soon as you buy it. Depending on the quality, type and source of the gasoline, as well as storage conditions, doubling the dosage rate of STA-BIL® brand could prolong this storage time to up to 2 years. However, any gasoline stored for more than 12 months will tend to lose volatility (ignitability), which could lead to hard starting or no start conditions after this long storage period. NO additive, STA-BIL® brand included, will prevent volatility loss in fuel. To reduce fuel volatility loss during storage, we recommend filling your tank at least 95% full with fresh fuel and STA-BIL® brand, and store in cool conditions away from direct sunlight if possible.

RE: Corn, Corn and more Corrn

... Only thing is how can I get half dozen kids to make it Eden. Anybody read any books on how to get your wife to let you have a mistress, and keep the wife happy. No I'm dreaming. Never would violate what my wife an I have. Maybe a fertility doctor. Any body thin it nuts to have kids at 72? I love to give homemade gifts. Which one of my kids do you want? ;)

RE: I got my new gas light.

With a large Amish population in Holmes County, Ohio, Lehman's Hardware caters to the "non-electric" buyer. They have a selection of gas lights and parts. Gas Lights

RE: Curt Betterweigh

Did you ever do the CAT weigh/Curt comparison? The Betterweigh sounds interesting if it really works.

RE: Propane Tanks Direction

My cylinders face forward, but the cover comes off hard as I have added batteries and the battery boxes come too close to the propane cover. I like to check which cylinder is being used without having to take the cover off, so I keep a small camping mirror in the front pass through so I can see the regulator through the top lid. Might work for back facing cylinders, too. https://i.imgur.com/MIN4toJl.jpg

RE: Fairbank AK -- Northern Lights ????

I can't speak as to aurora activity in December, but I agree that Sept is a good month. We saw the lights 3 nights out of 5 we were there last Sept. https://i.imgur.com/WYIBGGcl.jpg

RE: TPMS

I also have the TST 507 system with color monitor. I just had a problem with the monitor going blank and not able to turn on. Long story short- do not leave the color monitor plugged in to power all the time. Just charge it as needed and it will last 5-7 days on a charge. Leaving it plugged in is detrimental to the batteries. Mine is on the way back from TST after being repaired. The manual states, "Do not keep a fully charged display plugged in constantly." but I missed that.

RE: Leaving potable antifreeze in the system

Kenny, do you have a part number for the compressor to city water hose? I checked Home Depot's website and cannot find that. Thanks. I'm sorry but I don't. I bought it 10 years ago to winterize a small motel with only about 10 rooms. Here's several different ones from Amazon. air fitting adapters for RV Thanks. I should have looked on Amazon, but wasn't sure what to call them. I have the small plastic adapter, but have been concerned that the air hose pulling downward might break the fitting on the camper. This seems like a better arrangement.

RE: Goodyear Endurance Tires VS Carlisle Trail HD Tires

I put the Carlisle Trail HDs on my tt a few years back. I've towed the tt to Alaska and back with no issues. I did move up to load range D from the stock C, but will buy again when I need tires.

RE: Full Time For Six Months

I think there's enough interest. Tell us your experiences and opinions, a lot of us will read your thread. Not everyone who reads them will respond so, you won't know how many read what you posted. I'll second this post. I probably wouldn't have responded, but thought I would to add one more "read".

RE: alaska 2021 ???

We plan on going in 2021 if all is well, this would make our third trip up to Alaska. we'll be entering through Nagara Falls this and traveling east towards Alaska. For those who never have been to Alaska allow lot of time to travel it's a long drive. I'll bet it was a really long drive to Alaska going east from Niagara Falls. You might want to stop and ask directions before you get to Nova Scotia. If Columbus would have stopped and asked directions, he never would have discovered America. Just so you know, Columbus didn’t discover America...about 500 years before him Leif Eriksson set up shop in what is now Canada, which is part of America. And about 15,000 years before Leif and his troop showed up the asians walked over from Siberia to North America. Now that’s what my history teacher told us back in the early 70’s... but... things may have changed since then, who knows... grin Soup. ...but did they stop and ask directions?:)

RE: How do you pay your bills on the road on extended trips?

As others have said, we put as many bills as possible on auto pay. We had a couple that we could not do that way, so I brought a few checks along with us. On extended trips, I bring a small laser printer so we can have hard copies of the itinerary that we make up the night before.
