RE: Still Having Problems With TC and Truck

Oh, sorry. I thought this was all caused from rust. I guess I have your situation confused with another member’s. In that case, I’d be reluctant to replace the bed with another factory bed. Maybe a flatbed is in order :):)

RE: Still Having Problems With TC and Truck

Flatbed dealers quite often have an inventory of new factory pickup bed take-off’s Just doing a web search for “Colorado used pickup beds” came up with this. I would think a dealer like this that claims to have “a large inventory of New factory take off truck beds for Chevrolet, Dodge and Ford trucks” would have the ability to get your old bed off and a new one installed quicker than you could do it yourself. Pickup beds aren’t really hard to remove, but on a rusty truck like yours, the hardest part may very well be getting the old bolts removed. Master craft Truck Equipment Englewood, CO Salvage yards would be another source, though I would expect those beds to be used, and less expensive. :):)

RE: Iron air battery -- too heavy for RVs, but interesting

I see batteries like those ultimately serving the same purpose as pumped storage hydroelectricity and “peaker” power plants that allow the base power producers of all types to handle peak load times. Large scale economical battery storage is exactly what is needed for wind and solar power production to become more widely used, and displace more carbon based power plants. Because, try as we might, the sun still sets every evening, and the wind stops blowing at least occasionally. :):)

RE: Why put the fridge in the slide out?

IMHO, the weight is not a problem. There are TC’s with all kinds of heavy [email protected] in the slide, and they seem to be able to handle the weight just fine. From a preferred design and technical viewpoint though, I would prefer there be no electric, gas or plumbing in the slide at all. Which means I don’t want the fridge, sinks, commode or shower in a TC slide out. I just don’t, and I realize that puts me in a very small minority because there are very few (maybe even no) TC’s with a slide out that don’t have at least one of those things in the slide. The last time I seriously looked at new TC’s I couldn’t find a single one with a slide that I would buy. That’s the biggest reason why I continue to hang on to my 20 year old camper. :):)

RE: Kimbo or Lance for the Cybertruck?

Is a camper that uses a foot pump for the sink faucet even on the same planet as the Lance 1172? I suspect the respective owners are of a totally different…….pretty much everything. Probably don’t even use the same pronouns. :):)

RE: Chasing the green monster away

I like these products. The NCP2 is VERY thick, and does not liquify like petroleum jelly and some greases will. https://i.imgur.com/ssIUlNll.jpg height=300 https://i.imgur.com/IbQkovJl.jpg height=300 https://i.imgur.com/efJe0bdl.jpg height=300 :):)

RE: Just an eye opener

Well, there’s a small stream of water coming out of what appears to be electrical conduit. Probably not uncommon for buried utilities. I know the conduit my house service is run in has water in it cause I can see it when I look down into a corner pull-box location where the conduit comes up above the ground. It’s fine, it’s all fine! :W :):)

RE: Problem with U-Haul refill. Time replace my propane tanks?

Do propane tank refill places refill exchange tanks? I always assumed you need to bring an exchange tank back to an exchange place………. As long as the exchange cylinder has a “normal” OPD valve, it can be refilled anywhere. It’s your tank, you can do what you want with it. As I mentioned though, at one time Blue Rhino was trying to lock you into exchanging tanks with them by using a proprietary valve. I believe it was called a Trisafe2, and it took a magnetic “key” to unlock it for refilling. And then there’s their practice of “short filling” that I don’t like. Some like exchange, some don’t. I’m on the “don’t” side. :):)

RE: Problem with U-Haul refill. Time replace my propane tanks?

I never use cylinder exchange. I want to keep mine, thank you. Blue Rhino and the other exchange companies have admitted that they underfill the cylinders for “safety” reasons. Being a cynical person, I say it’s more likely they underfill them for profit reasons. At one time, they were also using valves that couldn’t be refilled by normal propane suppliers. It took some type of magnetic gadget in order to refill their cylinders, and of course only Blue Rhino had it. Atlanta Urinal-Constipation article on this subject I don’t participate in underwear exchange programs either. Keeping those too. :P :):)

RE: Problem with U-Haul refill. Time replace my propane tanks?

If it has any dents, dings, or any pitting caused by rust, replace it. You have a DOT cylinder, and a DOT cylinder is a DOT cylinder is a DOT cylinder. Doesn’t matter if the cylinder is going to end up on a BBQ or an RV. Also, be happy you have the “upright” (vertical) 20 lb cylinder vs. horizontal, as those are the most common, and therefore the least expensive to replace. Another nice thing about a new cylinder is that you won’t have to worry about recertification for 12 years. :):)

RE: Mystery Damage to my truck. From the camper??

This just happened right? Was it unusually windy or bumpy on your last trip? I’d say your camper got a little sideways in the bed at some point. Years ago, I was having strong headwinds and side winds occasionally move my camper a surprising amount, despite the fact that the tiedowns were tight, and the camper is sitting on a rubber mat. I eventually made some modifications to the bottom of the camper, and made a centering fixture for the truck bed to keep it from moving around. :):)

RE: 12v coolers

I’ve had one of these for about 18 months, and it’s been running continuously in my garage keeping my beer cold. It will freeze it if I set it too low. F40C4TMP When I first got it, I ran it at its lowest setting long enough to freeze water. This is a picture of its power consumption, according to my Kill-A-Watt. It’s displaying WATTS, and the compressor was running at the time. https://i.imgur.com/572zDMMl.jpg Edit: I fixed the broken link. Hopefully it will stay working this time. :):)

RE: 2022 Toyota Tundra Reveal

I can't help what I think when I see the Tundra T*RD. LOL Not the best acronym. Me too neither. I’m just gonna say it with no asterisk: “Oh look boss, another Tundra TuRD Pro!!! BTW, you feeling the need for a pit stop? I sure am. That burrito grande I had last night wants out!” https://i.imgur.com/QLgeIoKl.jpg :):)

RE: Better AC filter for those who havnt seen it yet

You guys need to put FACTS out with your opinions on the OP's filter mod. What??? “Nattering nabobs of negativism” don’t need no stinking facts! I know, I just dated myself. :R :):)

RE: The Emotions in a TC

Just returned from a week out with the boss and my granddaughter. We spent some time at Table Rock Lake near Branson, MO. The lake has been very high, and this site had been covered with water just a few days before we got there. They had just gotten it cleaned up and opened, so we snagged it. :B The site next to us in the background is still closed because the power post is still in the water. https://i.imgur.com/lj1RVlUl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/PJkCszyl.jpg :):)
