RE: Rv Park with Pine trees

Come to Washington state! Many of our state CG's stink of them (pun intended). Lake Easton, Rasar (then walk through Rock Port state park for ancient, enormous, old growth trees), Birch Bay, Lake Wenatchee - just to name a few of our favorites. Reservations are a must though.

RE: Follow-up on refrigerator temp problem

Thanks for taking the time to update us. Many never bother.

RE: Fast tongue jack

Caution with the folding foot, unless you bungee it up while traveling it has tendency to drop down. And It tends to fold up on uneven ground. Then it's broken. It has a 1/2" dia, spring loaded steel pin that must be pulled for it to move from either position. Drop the tongue hard enough (like my dealer did) and it will break. Otherwise it will never move on its own.

RE: Diesel Engine Owners- I've a DUSTED engine, so cummins says

Run. As is so often the case with diesels, that shop doesn't know how to diagnose so they claim they need to do everything. Find a better shop. BTW, is is VERY obvious when an eng is dusted. Also, a leak in the boost lines of a turbo WILL NOT cause dirt ingestion. To the contrary, it pushes air outward. I would just fix the fan and try again. I bet all is good then.

RE: Pt Townsend Coupeville Ferry Seattle Area

My buddy takes his Maserati, Ferrari and Aston Martin (I know, right?) on that ferry every single weekend. Never ever had a problem with clearance. I've taken my Challenger SRT on it that scrapes some speed bumps and never hit.

RE: IH-5 through Seattle options?

I would not touch I405. Go through Seattle mid day (noon) if week day or late at night (after 7PM) and drive straight up I5 to 20. If weekend you can go any time.

RE: Transferring fresh water when dry camping

If you're considering the Seaflo 5.5 GPM 60 psi pump, skip it. I just bought one (looking for better flow) and it's a total disappointment. Lousy pressure and about the same volume as my Shurflo 4008. Oh and it's horrendously loud and it vibrates due to cavitation. I'm waiting for Shurflo to come out with a 5 chamber bypass pump.

RE: Corroded 7-pin no more

It will happily corrode with no voltage present. You just need to keep it dry.

RE: Can’t find a part

Yeah, that's a stupid price for what it is. Could you make one of these work?

RE: Fast tongue jack

I use one of these and it works great. Pull the lever and it folds up out of the way. Folding foot

RE: Cleaning trim

Either replace or paint with Krylon Fusion (amazing stuff).

RE: Recommendation on 2nd AC

The OP didn't ask whether or not to have a second AC. He asked for a recommendation for "something quiet with its own controls and thermostat".

RE: 50 amp RV outlet

Personally, I would tell him to wire a standard Nema 14-50 RANGE receptacle. If you tell him to do a drier receptacle you may get a 6-50 or something else.

RE: 50 amp RV outlet

Home Depot has them - that's where I got the last one. Or Amazon.

RE: 50 amp RV outlet

Neutral and ground should only be connected together at the main panel.

RE: 50 Amp Usage Question

Well first off you can’t use a 220V circuit on a 50A RV! Second higher amps is always the better way to go. But since you’re wiring everything, why not just run a couple 50A RV services with a 30A RV outlet. Every 50A RV has 240VAC coming into it but it's then separated into two 120VAC circuits. Look at the wiring of a 50A RV outlet. It is not 240V! Now you can wire in 240 after the panel in the RV. But coming in, no it’s 2 120V 50A circuits. Just adding up the voltage does not make it 240! I'm sorry but you just don't understand what this circuit is. It's simply a 240VAC range outlet. It does measure 240 across in your RV's panel and yes, adding up two 120VAC circuits that are on opposite sides of a split phase does give you 240V. Maybe we're just getting stuck in semantics here..

RE: Bay View RV Resort in Texas has Workamper Openings:

Sounds like some are insecure with the choices they've made or they wouldn't be so ars-hurt over a pragmatic observation. Or maybe deep down inside, you feel a little duped after working for $5/hr. There was nothing offensive about my original post so try not to be such a snow flake. Oh and for the record, I have tremendous respect for a person that supports himself or a family working at Walmart. I have no dog in this fight. But its offensive for the simple fact, you assume a person doing the job doesn't understand how much they are being paid? Are you attempting to enlighten them as to their salary as though they can't figure it out for themselves. Your passive aggressive tactics are offensive. People applying are responsible adults. They are capable of understanding what their time is worth. If you are not interested don't apply but don't attempt to shame those who maybe interested.I was going to reply as well, but you did a much better job than I would have. 100% agree and thank you. Talk about arrogant, you guys think you have the right to tell me what I can post? For your information, my post was addressed to the OP. It was to let them know how lousy of a deal it was. Apparently you're easily offended. Perhaps you should lighten up a little and consider that not everything is about you personally.
