RE: Florida RED Tide at Ft. De Soto

You won’t miss much if you have to cancel but the heat. As a previous resident of 70 years, it’s going to either be very hot or a hurricane will be expressing itself.

RE: Transmission shudder

It is probably caused by the trucks AFM ability when the truck switches to 4 cylinder mode. Several post concerning GM vehicles with AMF. Many forums reporting transmission shutter and lifter problems. The transmission TSB relating to fluid flush addresses what most report as when accelerating, feels like driving over rumble strips. My 2019 Corvette has had both.

RE: New Ford recalls

PYload sticker and rear axle lubricant. The majority recalls are for a FRS explorer that should not tow much more than a pop up or small single axle TT.

RE: FOB keys and theft

Most new GM vehicles, additional fobs can be programmed in the car itself. I have a C7 Corvette and used this procedure to program my additional fob. Fob Programming

RE: Connecting Winegard Traveler to Dish Hopper

Use an RF Modulator which uses the video output in your receiver to send the signal to a cable.

RE: do LED interior lights have bulbs that can be replaced?

Most newer RVs have non replaceable bulbs in the can type lights but those non sealed like over the bathroom sink/ dining table may be replaceable.

Most of the full size residential couches that recline will come apart in 6 sections. 3 seats and 3 backs.

RE: Tires - for a truck...

Every new truck I’ve ever bought, I make them remount the raised white letter tires inside cause they are a pain to keep clean in this Georgia clay.

RE: 50A breakout - 30A & 20A for 2nd A/C in 30 amp RV

I placed a second a/c in 2 separate 30amp trailers over the years plunging the second unit into the 20 amp pedestal plug. Never had a problem. Eve had 3 50/amp units over the years with either duel or triple a/c units . On one of the 50 amp units, I tried a split 2, 30 amp plugs to a 50 amp since many Georgia state parks have a twin 30 amp pedestal, I’ve attached the 50 amp units to a pedestal with 2 30 amp outlets and it blew breakers up stream in a main junction box. When I attached 1 of the 30amp legs to the pedestal 20 amp outlet, it blew the 20 amp GFCI. The only way to work it out is to have the new unit on a separate input cord using the pedestal 20 amp and the 30 amp to the dedicated 30 supply.

RE: I-95 rest area parking for RV

We were Florida residents for 70 years. I’ve spent the night along I-10, I-75, and I-95 many tines without any problems. Wed pull in, make a bathroom run and hit the sack till daylight., never a problem. We’ve even joined the truckers overflow on the entrance ramps back onto the interstate.

RE: RV diesel future?

Let’s put it this way, if you are living today, you will be dead and gone before fossil fuel is Not available. There are at least 7 million diesel vehicles registered in the US. Don’t know how many tractors, construction equipment, Generators etc there are. If all the vehicle plants in the us turned to electric only, it would take over 10 years to replace those 7 million + vehicles. Ain’t going to happen too quick.

RE: Regular Microwaves vs RV Microwaves

I’m seeing less and less of microwaves being vented to the outside. While ours has a fan, it sucks cooking fumes through a filter much the same way most home microwaves do with no venting to the outside.

RE: Benefit of extra fuel tank.

My bladder requires a rest every few hours. Our Ford has a 48 gal tank which allows us to tow most of a day, at least 400 miles. I’ve bought fuel for $2.48-$5.15 a gal. If you can’t afford the price of fuel, you should get another hobby.

RE: ? DIY Utility Trailer Deck "Paint" ?-

Using a deck paint and a bag of friction additive, or a few handfuls of playground sand makes a protective deck covering that’s non skid.
