RE: Atwood Jacks Question

Contact these guys. They made the wired and wireless remote jack control systems for Atwood. You can still buy replacement remotes and controllers from them. Your going to need these components, and to probably disable the switches on the jacks. Gamma Electronics “Atwood” search results :):)

RE: Avion truck campers - THE AVIONISTA ROUND UP IN MULEY POINT

Dick, that’s probably one of the finest examples of expert craftsmanship I’ve ever seen. Being able to work at that level in metal, with all of those curves and contours is no small feat, and is just awe inspiring. Take a bow, man. You deserve it. :):)

RE: Argo pics: The Outside

I just realized the rear window was deleted from the cab as well. Great job making it look like it was never there. I’m betting Dick has a hot rod sitting just out of view somewhere :C :):)

RE: Argo pics: The Outside

I must say, that took some stones to cut into a truck as new as that. Looks very nice, though. Good job, Dick! :):)

RE: Where is the Converter/Charger!!! Aaargh!

The owner of a 2005 Sightseer 34A was asking the same question on another forum, and the answer was that it was right behind the AC breaker panel that you show in Pic3. :):)

RE: Propane pigtails leaking

The excess flow check valve that’s part of the Acme nut is supposed to shut off the flow of LP if the flow ever exceeds more than your rig would use if all of your LP appliances were turned on at once. The assumption being that if it ever flows more than that, there’s a leak somewhere. That’s why they make different colors of the nut, it should be matched to the LP system it’s protecting. Apparently your rig came with green nuts, so I assume your systems max usage rate is under 200K btu. Black is for up to 70K btu Green is for up to 200K btu Red is for up to 400K btu I have a big torch that connects to a 20 lb. LP cylinder that I use to start fires with. It uses unregulated vapor straight from the cylinder, and looks like a flamethrower when it’s going. It’s also very loud. It’s the only propane item I have that has a red nut on the hose. With red Acme nuts on your pigtails, it will take a much bigger leak to trip the excess flow check valve. :):)

RE: Help with a batch file not concatinating it's logs

WesternRVParkOwner has it right. Don't be surprised if this doesn't get a lot of responses. This is an RV-oriented board and this question is better oriented towards boards like Windows Ten Forums, where all the participants are coding jocks. (I'm a retired coding jock myself and would never post such a question here.) Good luck with your problem. IMHO, the term “jock” should be reserved for those who participate in activities that require wearing one. Since there’s no athletic or strenuous physical aspect to coding, I can’t see how a jock might help prevent any potential coding injuries. Sorry, but thoughts like this cross my mind when I can’t sleep. :P :):)

RE: Propane pigtails leaking

The red Acme nut is supposed to indicate that it’s equipped with a 400,000 btu excess flow check valve, which is twice what the green nut is equipped with. You shouldn’t be using the red nut on an RV that wasn’t originally equipped with one. :):)

RE: Options for Replacement Mattresses?

I was just asked this question by a buddy of mine who owns a class c. I was able to find this place. There are other suppliers if you do a web search on “RV corner cut mattress”. Corner Cut Mattress :):)

RE: 50 Amp Surge Guard Issue?

Surge Guard products now have a limited lifetime warranty as well. They made that change in November 2017. Products purchased before then just have the product warranty in effect when sold. I still don’t like their products that have the female receptacle on a pigtail. :):)

RE: F450 maneuverability question

That’s what I thought. I know I can be sitting on the shoulder of a two-lane road, and do a u-turn without running onto the shoulder on the other side of the road. The turning radius of the F450 pickup is very car like. :):)

RE: F450 maneuverability question

If the F450 pickups still come with the wide-track front axle, then it will have a turning radius of right at 50 ft, curb to curb. Not sure what the short bed F350 TR is, but I do know my 450 beats the heck out of my old long bed CC F350. :):)

RE: Full timers warning

If an “IRS Agent” shows up and starts asking you personal questions, the first thing you should do is get in his face and ask in a semi-menacing voice: “You got any ID?” If his answer is “ ‘bout wut?”, he ain’t no IRS Agent. :B :W :):)

RE: Blue Tec Fluid

What I believe he means is that pre-DEF Diesels that had DPF’s used massive amounts of EGR to control the combustion temperature. EGR works, but it sure comes at a heavy price in added problems and reduced reliability. I’ll be glad when EGR goes away entirely. :):)

RE: Balancing tires, what's best?

Oh man that’s really spooky! :E I was just thinking the same thing! :):)

RE: Balancing tires, what's best?

Beads will only do STATIC balancing. For front tires you need both STATIC & DYNAMIC balancing, which can only be accomplished with a spin balancer. Richard I don't understand what you mean. what is the difference in static and dynamic balancing? Seems like beads in the tire are by definition dynamic, as the wheel is spinning as they find their home. It means he doesn’t understand physics. Beads/Centramatics ARE dynamic balancers. :):) No It means you don't understand tire balancing and physics. Would you care to come out from behind your keyboard and insult me to my face, big guy? Or are you just a keyboard bully? Static balancing is what beads and bubble balancers do. Dynamic balancing is the balancing of the tire from side to side, not top to bottom. Dynamic balancing is one of the causes of death wobble and cupping tires. Here go educate yourself I watched your video, and I have no problem with what he’s saying because he’s demonstrating the modes of a computerized spin balancing machine. One of the modes is “Dynamic”. He says nothing about any type of dynamic balancing media. If you’re under the impression that a spin balancer is the only thing capable of dynamically balancing a tire, you’re wrong. I’ll say it again, you don’t understand physics, and I suspect you don’t understand what the word “dynamic” means either. If you did, you’d know that saying “Static balancing is what beads and bubble balancers do.” is half wrong (guess which half), and “Dynamic balancing is one of the causes of death wobble and cupping tires“ is completely wrong (it should be “Dynamic imbalance is....”. BTW, the balance problem he was illustrating with the big, wide, off-road tire can be easily fixed with dynamic balancing beads. Provided the problem is strictly a balance problem, and there are no physical defects or damage to the tire or wheel, beads will balance it. No dynamic balancing media can fix a bent, warped, out of round tire or wheel. But then, lead weights can’t either. Even if a computerized spin balance machine is used. :):)

RE: Again, Admin Opening Tongass National Forest...

While the Japanese pine beetle is a non-native destructive pest, it’s the mountain pine beetle that’s killing all the pine trees, and it’s native to the US. The damage caused by these two beetles is distinctly different. :):)

RE: Again, Admin Opening Tongass National Forest...

I live in Colorado, where much of our forest is dead due to pine beetle infestation, which is due to suppressing fires for too long. I've heard a different explanation for that. Yeah, man brought the beetle here, and now won't take care of the problem. Then they whine when it burns and call it Mother Nature taking care of the problem, we created. When in reality the dead trees should be harvested and used, and the forest slash cleaned up. Good forest management practices. OH but hell no the greenies won't allow that. I can’t remember exactly where I read this, but it was on an interpretive sign in a park in CO. Possibly RMNP, or Mesa Verde. Anyway, it was explaining why all the trees are dead, and why so many had to be cut down in the campground. Long multi-paragraph sign. The very last sentence of the very last paragraph was something to the effect of “This has happened dozens of times over the last XX-thousand years”. So, pine beetles aren’t new, or even a crisis. It happens, the forest recovers, it will happen again. I agree that the dead trees could and should be harvested. There are things that could still be made from the lumber. Ever hear of “Beetle-Kill Pine” flooring? Look it up, it’s beautiful, and expensive. :):)
