RE: Dually Valve Stems

Borg solid stems in the rear and standard short stem in the front. Have TST 507 sensors attached all around, flow throughs on the rear and non-flow throughs on the front. This setup has worked great for years.

RE: GM to introduce electric Hummer

They are talking a skateboard battery layout so the batteries would be down low. It would be a great vehicle for the rver that takes it on short trips pulling on the weekend and then commutes to work during the week on 1/4 the fuel cost.

RE: Oil headed for 70 bucks s barrel. Here we go.

An area of solar panels of 100 x 100 miles backed up by 1 x 1 miles of batteries could power the entire United States. Long distance DC transmission lines can transport the power. Obviously the solar won’t all have to be in the same place. The Gemini Solar project is an example of the rapid development taking place. 690 Megawatts with 531 MW / 2125 megawatt-hour (MWh) battery power.

RE: Kwikee Stairs failure rate

We had our Kwikee electric steps not come out on a trip one time. And they didn’t come out for the whole trip. My eventual conclusion was I was not lubing one specific joint so the steps were jammed. Never have had an issue since. I went through most of the troubleshooting procedure on my own but had to quit when it called for a special harness. Took it into Camping World then. The tech there didn’t follow the procedure at all. He simply unbolted the motor and checked to see if the motor rotated back and forth when opening and closing the door, which it did. I use the specified lube, Kwikee Kwik-Lube.

RE: digital photo storage

We keep 4 copies of all our files on internal and external drives, one of which is in our safety deposit box. I make MD5 signature files of the files to make sure no data gets corrupted. Have had to update a couple of photos from other copies due to corruption. Still have our first digital camera photos from 2000.

RE: What do you do for condensation inside cabinets?

We take and run a large 60-pint dehumidifier that draws around 600 wats when in high humidity or cold locations. That is the only way to keep the humidity down to a reasonable level of 60-65%. The unit is heavy but fits well under the dinette table between the table leg and bench seat and I block it in with other gear so it doesn’t roll out. Normally we keep that dehumidifier in the garage. During our stay we have it running in the back. We only used it once this year at the end of October when it got below freezing and we had hook ups. We also have one of the small 80 watt units that uses a Peltier effect device but being small has less effect.

RE: Quick question about oil changes

I run Mobil 1 EP 5W/20 in the V10 and Mobil 1 0W-40 in the Onan Gen. I will change the V10 oil at 4000 miles and the Onan oil at 50 hours no matter how long it takes. This has been up to 20 months on the V10 and 2-1/2 years on the Onan. Blackstone oil analysis on both showed no issues with either oil change. I do stick with an all-synthetic filter media on the oil filter for the V10. I run the MH and gen monthly when not in use and use Stabil in the gas.

RE: toilet treatment for black water tank

I have been using this method for years. Grey and black sensors are working great. When we go out I insure that the bottom of the black tank is covered with water. Daily we add Walex Bio-Pak and Porta-Pak capsules. After we get back I will add water to black tank so it is at least 2/3 full. I will add water to the grey tank and dishwashing soap. I then take it for the final dump and use black tank flush. Both grey and black sensors always read empty at this point. When we go out the black tank will read accurately if we stay in one place. If we drive with a partially filled tank it can slosh and read higher than it actually is. If we dump without flushing then the sensors will read whatever the previous highest level was. I can always look in the toilet to see what the black tank level is. Both grey and black tanks are 40 gal. so we have never filled them.

RE: Changes in Air Temp and Tire PSI

Cold inflation pressure refers to ambient temperature at the time you are driving not the cool of the morning. An added factor is highways with sun shining on them adds additional heating. I usually inflate my rear duals to around 76-77 psi in the morning to target a cold inflation pressure of 80 psi at drive time and that produces a hot driving temperature of 88 psi as read out by the TPMS monitor. Pressure rise is around 1.5 psi for 10 degrees F.

RE: Cuts to the Senior discount coming?

The fed campgrounds already had no discount for double campsites nor extra vehicle parking fees. The places we go are apparently too primitive to have additional services that are discounted.

RE: how do you keep sewer tank clear

We use Walex Bio-Pak and Porta-Pak tablets. These keep the black tank contents dissolving fast and remove the odor. I then use the black tank flush after the final black tank dump to keep it clear.

RE: Those with portable surge protector

We have a whole house surge suppressor in our breaker panel at home and also use the portable surge suppressor at all times. The portable suppressor is in the utility bay attached to an extension cord so always gets used when the extension cord is plugged in. Lost a minor amount of electronics years ago at home when the utility had a 6kV line fall on the low voltage line. Added a whole house surge suppressor soon after.
