RE: 2020 Strikes Again

I have both Experian and Equifax. Both allow me to lock my credit report plus I get a notification if someone tries to access it. I also check my credit cards and bank accounts daily-sometimes multiple times if I've been using them a lot. You have to be ever vigilant. You also have Transunion and Innovis ---they are a CRA "consumer credit reporting agency" You should also have a security freeze with them for protection of your credit/fraud Credit Cards/Bank Accounts etc all have ALERTS turned ON I get an e-mail within 10 minutes **I know where/how much SHE as been shopping before SHE even gets back home LOL

RE: What do you do with ash/coals ?

I put the fire out at the end of the night, then next morning dump ashes into a trashbag and take to the dumpster. Never thought about doing it any other way. Mike Exactly^^^^ I use a Weber Smokey Joe Charcoal BBQ for grilling Fill it up with briquettes, place lid back on when done grilling....add more as needed then last night I leave lid off and let them burn down to ash Next morning dump in trashbag and place in dumpster with rest of our trash I would NOT even consider just dumping then next to roadway Don't do it at home...why do it at CG????

RE: Surgery has changed my life...for the worse

Author, you have a too old-fashioned vision of gender roles. In the 21st century, things have changed a bit, and things are different. Through the articles ***Link Removed*** you can see that gender roles have changed and adapted in modern society. What you are talking about is just sexist stereotypes that have no place in our time. I completely agree with you. We still have a lot of people sticking to the long-obsolete gender-roles We are already living in the 21st century and everyone can live as they want Lighten up folks It is a JOKE...posted in the ATC=HUMOR/JOKES sub-forum's good for the soul :S

RE: water heater drain mod

Problem with 'drain valves' especially ball valves. * water gets trapped inside the ball and can freeze...split ball valve *after installing one folks tend to NOT remove the set up to properly flush the WH Tank of sediment/scale/crud *Atwood drain hole is on 1/2" so installation of barb fitting/ball valve chokes the drain down and doesn't allow for good flushing...drains water OK but not the crud *and do you know what that hose/valve set up is TEMP Rated for? Water temp/pressure COULD go as high as 210*/150PSI should the t-stats fail

RE: TR: Kings Canyon/Sequoia

Been MANY a year since I was in Kings Canyon. Last time we were trying to have Lunch and the Yellow Jackets were being insistent ...... Took a hotdog, cut it up into tiny pieces and placed them on a plate 20 yards away. Not only did we get to enjoy our lunch in peace but we had entertainment as we watch those Yellow Jackets swoop in grab a piece of hotdog and attempt to go air borne. If load was too heavy they would nibble at the edges and try again. Eventually nibbling off just enough to get air borne with Max Payload. Memories.....thanks!

RE: RV Airflow

I did that 'mod' 12 yrs ago Removed chill grille. Made an 'inverted V' out of coroplast and installed it in plenum Reinstalled chill grille Fan room air blows down and splits due to the 'inverted V' directing the airflow out into the ducts And if you open Chill Grille vents is still blows directly Down Airflow thru ducts and chill grille was increased....5vr cools down quite well in high temps Dang...Missed the boat---should have patented 12 yrs ago I could have been a millionaire Dang, Dang, Dang

RE: E rated tire with max psi of 65?

2 issues running those tires: Rim stated your rims are 8" and yet the 'approved rims' are 9=(9.5")-12" (9.5" being the recommended width) Your rims are too Narrow and running down the hwy or when aired down then can pop off the rims...not too bad when in the sand but can be dangerous on hwy Max air pressure for those tires is 65# Running them at 80# is OVER-Inflated ...smaller contact patch, not recommended for 80# That is a 23% increase Your own words: These are way oversized for the truck (spec calls for minimum 9" rim width, mine are 8" (and when rim width was questioned you replied) I wouldn't either, but these were on the truck when I bought it. Change rims and only air up to 65# MAX for MAX Load

RE: Tow Haul Mode

I use it when not towing in stop and go traffic. It really helps slow you down quicker and keeps you from having to apply the brakes at all in some cases. I use Tow/Haul and EB when towing, not towing, stop & go traffic etc Diesels don't have any backpressure so they don't slow like a gas engine will .... The Tow/Haul & EB make it more relaxing to drive cause the deceleration is 'as expected'

RE: My very own 'broken bumper' story...why didn't I listen?

Thanks for posting that. Note made to always air out the bumper after using and storing sewer hose in it. bumper end caps should have holes in them to allow it to dry inside, But just about any metal will rust after 8 or 9 years. OP stated 'had used this bike rack in 4 different trailers since 2010; NOT the age of current trailer which signature shows 2019

RE: Dump Station Observations

If waiting in line to dump and finding fault with those dumping creates the need to post/rant might want to bypass the dump station, haul it home and dump in privacy were all is done correctly. Your blood pressure and stress levels will be lower

RE: Refridgerator is acting bizarre

Cold temps would NOT shut fridge in loss of power/turning off Causing 'Check" Light to come on etc Cold temps will cause lack of cooling due to coolant not flowing The Light bulb in outside compartment will help with coolant flow but will not fix a circuit board that is acting up

RE: Suburban water heater replaced by suburban Nautilus

Thanks!! Realized yesterday that I need a switch, which is sold separately! So I’ve ordered the “on demand control Center” and not just the on/off switch (which is also sold separately) :) That explains the connectors on the two grey wires (ODCC) and also the two LED wires, these four should connect the the switch. And I am assuming the red and black wires will connect to the orange/white wires. (Old Biscuit, yes I didn’t mean “connected” , rather orange and white ...positive and negative, sorry about that. Lol I assume the orange is positive and white negative? Then there is the small green wire from the RV...don’t know what that is for. And yes the 120 I won’t be using and I have terminated that into the junction box that was already there. Orange should be 12VDC+ White should be 12VDC- **Verify using voltmeter Green would be GROUND

RE: Refridgerator is acting bizarre

We are outside now using a heat gun on low to dry this out. Maybe it didn't get dry enough the first time. We've had this rig for about 4 years now and I don't think the gas ever worked on the fridge so it's always been on auto. I did notice though that our stuff wasn't warm in the fridge so the check light isn't turning the power off. I just don't understand why all of the sudden it's doing it. All we did was replace the thermistor. We can't try putting the old one back in because my son had to cut the wire to get it out. Your 1st post stated: Found out the hose in back broke and water went everywhere. REMOVE the circuit board so you can DRY the backside ...where the circuits/soldering is done

RE: Refridgerator is acting bizarre

'Check Light' only has to do with Propane operation Means flame failed to light off and Prove it lit If you are in AUTO Mode.... AC Power is priority BUT on LOSS of AC Power fridge will swap to GAS If Gas fails...Check Light IF in AUTO and you are SURE there have NOT been any Power Outages then Circuit Board is funky due to getting wet IF you have propane valved in and flame is lighting then issue is with the Flame Proving signal which could be bad Spark Electrode wiring/connection OR circuit board is funky from being wet You can completely remove circuit board *label/disconnect all wires/leads (AC/DC/Element Leads etc) Then dry both sides using hair dryer

RE: Thanksgiving 2020

Thank you Grey Mountain!!! I don't have the same record of time on earth or Thanksgivings as I haven't started my 7th decade yet. As a 16 year old I started working a 'Mans' Job...oil rigs and we ran 24/7. Missed a couple of Thanksgivings due to being 'the worm' (newest/youngest) Then went in the NAVY were I was 'on shift' in Engine Room or standing Sound/Security Watches during many Holidays. We also poked holes in the sky with our 5", our ASROC and our Tartar Missiles After the NAVY I spent the rest of my working career as Control Operator in Power Plants working 12hr rotating shifts.....again many Holidays/Anniversaries/Birthdays on shift This Thanksgiving holds more meaning then ANY in the past. 5 surgeries since Jan (2 Emergency which afterwards Doc told me He had Doubts) so I have be truly BLESSED and am VERY Thankful 2020 has been rough but 2021 has promise!!! Family/Friends are precious and Health Care Folks are TOPS
