RE: I just got the new RV Magazine

Since the magazine is basically a sales brochure, it should be free. The "tech" articles in the previous magazines were often an extension of the advertising and often gave erroneous information.

RE: Blue DEF

I bought the cheap stuff...once...check engine light came on, said it was a DEF issue. Used the Blue, after about 2-3 tanks of fuel, the CEL went away, no problems in 50,000 miles. It would be nice to know what truck and what the trouble code was so that we might learn something.

RE: Cannot open grey or black tank

You might want to call the county assistance office for aid. We had a family living in an old motor home that the local church members helped, so that too may be an option. The problem is simple, take down the cover and repair the valves, it ain't rocket science, anyone with an bit of ambition can make the repair. Surely there are folks that would be able to help if only they knew about the problem.

RE: Remember when tv

In Kansas we had the three networks as a kid then got PBS later on. Remember all the antennas on long poles at every house to get reception. Also remember going out and turning the pole to get the best reception while Dad would call out through the window. We were a fringe area for reception. With more over the air channels than ever before, it is surprising how few know that. Rotating antennas are a real benefit if one wants to take advantage of free TV.

RE: Cannot open grey or black tank

You need to expose the valves by removing any covers. Once you have access, try loosening the four screws in each valve and then operating the valves. Keep a bucket under the valves and expect some leakage. If the tanks can now be drained, then flush with plain water followed by removing the screws and replacing the seals.

RE: Dometic RV Toilet - Model 300

I don't know what toilet the OP has, Dometic has 300 series toilets with model numbers of 310 and higher. The black seal and the flush valve are replaceable in this series, any other problems require a complete toilet replacement.

RE: Ford posts videos of winter testing of their Electric F150.

I predict they will become very popular when the battery technology increases their range and we have sufficient charging stations. Electric cars were common in the early 1900's. I often wonder where we would be if back then they would have pushed battery technology like they did the internal combustion engine. My guess that many mountains would have been leveled to provide the minerals for the batteries and motors, and there would be power plants every block.

RE: RV lighting

Good luck finding LED bulbs that function well with a dimmer.

RE: Green Valve Stem Covers

I have green caps and nitrogen filled tires. I wish everyone did because it's good for the environment. I have noticed many tires several pounds low on air and that has a direct result in reducing gas mileage which adds to carbon emissions to the atmosphere. This doesn't apply to battery cars though. Wasting energy producing and distributing useless hydrogen should be considered, if you want to discuss this infinitesimal subject. Your wonderful battery powered car uses the nuclear, hydro, gas, fuel oil and coal fired power plants surrounding me.

RE: Green Valve Stem Covers

You really should replace the green valve caps with black ones, it might keep others from asking useless questions.

RE: EMS / Surge Protector

The correct solution is to properly engineer the park system. Park owners resist this answer due to the costs. Yet we all suffer with the danger and poor performance of inadequate power. I avoid the suffering by boosting my voltage, others can smoke their equipment all they want.

RE: EMS / Surge Protector

Get an autoformer while you still can, apparently the low information crowd is taking over the asylum.

RE: How will my new F350 behave in cold temps?

The last time I checked, all the Powerstroke engines have the block heater element in them from manufacturing. I would be very surprised if that wasn’t still true. It’s a very inexpensive part, and installing it requires emptying and refilling the cooling system. The harness is the only thing added by ordering the engine heater. My 2010 F450 didn’t have the cord when I bought it, and I added it. Whoever ordered my current truck included the block heater, and all I had to do was find where the cord was hidden. Depending on year and the state they were delivered to, there may be no factory installed block heater unless ordered. My 6.7 had no block heater so I installed one. Remove the right front fender liner, cover the starter with plastic and remove the plug installed in the block, then quickly screw the heater in. If you get prepared and work real fast there in only a minor amount of coolant loss. I never had an issue starting in temperatures well below zero even when all electrical outlets were taken by old school (think 7.3) diesels.

RE: Travel trailer warranty

Don’t do it. You will be very lucky if the dealer does the factory warranty work correctly and in reasonable time.

RE: Tire/wheel change on the road

HONEST question, how do you know the lugs were not torqued to lets say 150-160??? So you set your torque wrench to 140 and sure enough they all click. There is nothing I can say that will suit you. I suggest you search some YouTube videos if you want some instruction that might be correct.

RE: The mac daddy of bike rack overload?

I have intimate knowledge of these junk pull out racks. A good friend has one of these on his 5er and has had nothing but trouble. He won't even use it anymore for the bouncing before he lost 2 bikes. But just for the naysayers who say the rest of us are busy body's or whatever here are some weights involved. Gen 260 lbs (per web site) Propane 110 lbs for 2 full 30 pounders (per interweb lookup) Spare tire and wheel 75 lbs (65 of which is lookup wheel est at 10 Aluminum cover 15 lbs (est) ------------------ Total 460 lbs Plus the 150 lbs the manufacturer states the rack weighs. One SC I95 expansion joint and this is throwing sparks down the road. Thank you for that. It is pretty bad when we can't discuss possible RV safety issues without the approval of the naysayers.

RE: Tire/wheel change on the road

A good tire shop might use torque sticks. I told the last shop to torque to 140 and all the nuts were dead on when I got home. You mean they all “clicked” ??? No way in HE!! will I let anyone touch my rigs with A torque stick. I mean that I do check others work and I do know how to use a torque wrench.

RE: The mac daddy of bike rack overload?

That thread is about the bumper tube ripping from the weight of the spare tire, not the failure of the sliding tubes. There have been many posts regarding bumpers failing on trailers that do not have the slide mounting fom the weight of the spare tire. Actually this thread is about a ridiculous pile of junk hung on the back of a trailer.

RE: The mac daddy of bike rack overload?

Read about it on the Keystone forum. Some of us have experience in things mechanical and know junk when we see it.
