RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

I'm either lucky or just use to needles....... No side effects from 1st Moderna 6 days ago Never have had any adverse reactions to any shots except that one time in Boot Camp when the Corpsman gave me multiple shots cause he thought the airgun was messing up :S

RE: Battery Powered Lawn Mower

Last year New Neighbor was trying to move his 1/4 acre with electric cord mower. After what seemed like hours watching him drag the cord around, reposition the cord so he could mow a section, 2 long extension cords cause exterior outlet was only in one place....mower bogging down etc. I couldn't take it anymore-----pulled out the Troy 22" self propelled mower I hadn't used in couple years cause I got a 42" riding mower. Dusted it off.........filled the gas tank/couple of pulls and it fired right up Pushed it across the street and gave it to him as a House Warming Gift Cord Electric MIGHT be OK for a really small yard That 16" Self propelled Battery Mower------probably would do a really good job on that small yard......but $304 is more then I paid for that Troy ***course you can use those 18V Batteries for other Ryobi tools

RE: Resuming Rving... ideas dealing with Covid.

YOU just mask up, social distance, wash your hands and go about your travels Not really much difference then going grocery shopping, going to fuel station, going to doctors, etc etc etc YOU can control your encounters but you will never be able to control the fools As for food delivery...........have no control over WHO is making it, delivering it etc I'll do my own shopping and cooking as I can control it vs someone (who knows who)

RE: 2018 Jayco Pinnacle 36KPTS Furnace Problems

Run furnace and while running take voltage readings on DC Supply and AMP draw on motor circuit... That On/Off CB should be rated for 15A Trips if motor draws more then 15A **Motor failing, air wheels binding, low dc voltage....high amp draw

RE: 2018 Jayco Pinnacle 36KPTS Furnace Problems

The On/Off Switch is also a circuit breaker On/Off function is so DC can be turned off locally when working on furnace The circuit breaker is actually a re-settable heat sensitive device designed to protect the blower motor. In a furnace, this heat evidences itself in the form of an amp draw. The breakers used are externally mounted and are of a slow blow style. This means that due to their location on our furnaces, the heat of the furnace cannot affect their operation. Likewise, short amperage spikes will not cause them to trip either. The motor will have to produce an excessive and prolonged amperage draw to trip it. When a circuit breaker trips, it does so because a problem exists. After resetting it, voltage and amperage draws should be taken to determine where the problem is. These readings will determine if you have a power source, breaker or motor problem.

RE: Raising our 5er

Installing the Correct Track system will raise the trailer 3". A relatively inexpensive & easy install. Not sure LCI Correct Track is available anymore Thought after install it was 2" overall

RE: Freezer not freezing

OK, ten days ago outside Ambient temps ranged from ten below zero (degrees F) to 18 above. Since then, there has been a gradual warm up ranging mid teens for lows to lower 40's for highs. We keep the inside above freezing with space heater and occasionally running the furnace. It was too cold.......... Light bulb in rear compartment

RE: Excellent video on brake repacking

Brake Repacking? And with all those 'special' tools I'm surprised he doesn't have a 'bearing packing tool' height=400 width=500

RE: Freezer not freezing

The Dometic DM2852 model does not have a LAC (Low Ambient Control)---turns interior light on for heat load in cold weather **DM models are same as RM models.....Dometic changed production location and changed to DM designations Freezer has to get down to 10*F or so before Food compartment can cool down Ambient temps can impede cooling effect...... So as asked What is Outside Temp? If really a light bulb in outside compartment to add a little heat If NOT all that cold......below 20*F Remove thermistor from the FIN in food compartment and let it dangle W/O FIN temp feed back to thermostat the fridge will run continuously and cause Freezing temps (freezer & food compartment) Fridge gets COLD..... Replace the thermistor with Snip-The-Tip Rheostat (Uses same OEM thermistor wiring just replaces the defective thermistor) IF fridge does NOT get COLD Then you will have to 'force cool' to test if cooling unit is capable of functioning **Unplug the Electric Element leads from lower circuit board....plug leads directly into the 120VAC out....energizing the element continuously (bypasses all controls) Operate with element continuously energized for 12hrs Fridge gets cold then circuit board is issue Fridge does NOT get cold...cooling unit is bad

RE: Raising our 5er

2" nose high on a 39' 5th wheel should not be an issue Yes it is good to tow level but at 2" nose high are you experiencing any towing issues? Chucking, abnormal rear trailer tire wear etc????

RE: Ram 2500 only carries 2300 lbs.

What is the RAWR......6000#? What is the scaled weight on Rear Axle?? That is your limitation....add springs, upgrade suspension etc but stay at/under axle ratings (tires also but they are usually a bit higher rated then axle)

RE: weight on slide out

Thanks and I will try Keystone again.... So right now I have on the main slide out one sleeper sofa and one dinette with 4 chairs. I want to get rid of the sleeper sofa and replace with a dual recliner and then get rid of the dinette and replace with another dual recliner so the difference in weight would be between the dinette and one dual recliner. SO 4 recliners vs sofa/bed & dinette Unless folks are in the 300# PLUS club I don't see an issue Weight of recliners not the issue. It's the added weight of 4 fat people (I use to be a club member at 385# but now 270# so I can call fat people fat)

RE: Bal 28240 spare tire

Don't know if it is a BAL 28240 but have similar/same set up on my 5th wheel....factory installed Never had an issue with lowering/raising spare tire other then weight of tire/rim and getting it centered 5vr is 2007 Vintage height=300 width=450

RE: weight on slide out

You stated " What I would like to do is remove the sofa bed and dinette and replace with two double recliners." And then stated "Do you believe replacing dual recliner for dinette will cause slide issues??" Now which is it......... Remove sofa bed AND dinette OR remove dinette??? Sofa bed & dinette.............2 recliners is NOT going to be an issue (weight wise) Just the dinette....table/chairs are not that heavy 2 recliners could be much heavier then dinette set BUT slideouts are 'self supporting' when extended and the subfloor is pretty thick Not sure what yours is but the subfloor in my slideouts is 1" thick Call Keystone back........ask to speak with Factory Production Supervisor not some 'customer service' phone rep who probably is not even at the factory, never been to the factory and hasn't a clue about production I spoke directly with 'production rep' when I needed specific information **course now a days that maybe near impossible to contact one CUSTOMER SERVICE Goshen, IN (866) 425-4369 (toll free) ***ASK FOR TECH or Factory Rep Try calling CORPORATE Goshen, IN (574) 535-2100

RE: Harbor Freight - what happened to the 20% off coupons

Harbor Freight is opening a NEW Store in town next to us....18 miles away which is a heck of a lot closer then the only other Harbor Freight that is 40 miles away I do not use Harbor Freight for tools......Dad always said buy quality tools ONCE But I do use them for stuff.... Only other place to get stuff is ACE or Home Depot so it's a mixed bag with the new Harbor Freight going in

RE: Landing Gear Lubrication

As for the 'legs' With 5vr hitched I drop inner leg and spray it with a graphite lube.....goes on wet then dries. Then exercise the inner leg up/down Afterwards I dun outer leg down and spray the upper portion then fully retract Give it a light spray every couple months of use as I am breaking camp Simple....takes maybe 5 minutes
