RE: Do you know a good mail-order compounding pharmacy?

Not sure where you are. In the Denver area my wife has used both Pencol and Belmar pharmacies and has had no complaints about either one. I believe that they both offer mailing service. She uses them for creams and pills that require special manufacture.

UPS Batteries

Are UPS batteries good for use in RV's? (AGM Batteries designed for use in Uninterrupted Power Systems.) What are the advantages and disadvantages? Thanks for your advice.

RE: Using RV in winter, including water

Also depends on where your water tank and water lines are. If the system is comfortably within the RV, you can open the cabinet doors at night to make sure the heat reaches the pipes. If the water lines run under the floor, you will have a hard time preventing things from freezing during cold weather.

RE: Two Questions in Colorado

I like "best and safest" and also "least stressful and most relaxing." Do you have a time crunch? I would double back to Fort Collins and enjoy the drive up 14. However, Thom definitely is the authority here.

Question about Onan Generator

Something I have never understood about generators (I have an Onan 6.5 Emerald III.) A 12-volt DC battery is used to start the generator, which then produces 120V AC. The battery supplies the energy needed to run the generator, right? So, while the generator is running, does it send a 12-volt DC current back to the battery to keep it charged, or does the generator just continue to drain the battery until the battery no longer has enough voltage to keep it running? So if the generator drains the battery, then there must be a converter in the circuit to keep the battery charged, just like the alternator on a car engine. OK, I'm no electrical engineer, I just want to be sure that I understand this correctly. Thanks for your tolerance on this post.

RE: kwikee steps

I installed the upgrade kit that is available for the steps on my old rig (new motor and controller) and they work better than ever. I used to use modified window motors, but the factory motor was much better.

RE: State Bridge, CO to Kremmling

I once drove that road while we were shuttling back and forth for a raft trip on the Colorado River. That was a few years ago, but I remember it to be a two-lane paved road in good condition.

RE: Deciding on Battery Replacement

They are the UPS12-210MR. Three batteries. They were pretty well balanced intially, but now they are within about 2/10ths of a volt. They date from 2010 and 2011. On our trip in November the resting voltage of the group was about 12.8 volts.

Deciding on Battery Replacement

Hello all, my question is: What are the best way(s) to tell if an AGM battery has lost enough of its capacity that it should be replaced? (And if it's anything complicated I will probably need advice on how to do it.) Thanks for your help. (I should add that this is a group of 54 amp-hour CD Technologies Hi-Rate Max batteries that I have been using in parallel in the RV. I took them out and right now I have them in my house charging.)

RE: Best Fuel Preservative for Pure Gas ???

Thank you all, I would just like to be sure that if I occasionally forget to empty the gas out of an engine or two, or leave it in too long, I won't wind up with equipment that won't run and carburetors that need to be replaced.

Best Fuel Preservative for Pure Gas ???

I buy pure (no ethanol) gasoline that I keep on hand in a couple of 5-gallon cans for snow blowers, lawn mowers, power washers, portable generators etc. The STABIL products that I buy indicate their use for alcohol-blended fuels. Are there any fuel preservatives specifically for pure gasoline and which one would you recommend? Thanks for your help.

RE: What jack to have onboard for roadside tire changes?

Thanks for the help. The HR does have levelers, and I always have the cellphone, road service and credit card. I guess I'll just keep the bottle jack and hope that things work out if the time ever comes!

What jack to have onboard for roadside tire changes?

I have managed to travel in my HR for 10 years without ever having a flat or blow-out on the road. I have always carried a 6-ton bottle jack thinking that I would use that and boards as needed if the situation ever occurred. Today I watched a you-tube video on a blow-out incident and I am embarrassed to admit that I now realize a bottle jack will never work when a front rim with a shredded tire has dug itself down into the shoulder of the road. I suppose what I really should be taking might be a low-profile floor jack? What do you recommend as the best type of jack to carry for roadside tire changes? Thanks for your advice.

RE: Best type of house battery

I deploy my jacks with the motorhome motor still running. I imagine a fifth wheel owner could deploy the jacks and slides in the same way, so the power doesn't deplete your house batteries. I have gotten a lot more life and power out of AGM's than I did with LA batteries. The AGM's also need very little maintenance, so I think they are worth the extra cost. One hint is to look for craigslist ads for AGM's that are overstock or are being retired from UPS systems. A good way to get new or near new batteries for a fraction of the retail price.

RE: .

I just got done throwing out all of my shirts that had any logo or company name on them. I certainly would not have it on my RV.

Looking for Recommendations for a Replacement Water Pump

Hello, I need to replace the Shurflo 2088-403-444 water pump that is in my Holiday Rambler motorhome. This pump is 2.8 GPM, 4 Amps, 40 PSI and I'm looking for something about the same to replace it. I'm finding a lot of models and brands out there and I'm hoping for some recommendations. Thank you.

RE: Im in need of a 1992 Caribou Fleetwood. Truck Camper Manual

Manuals for RV's that come from the manufacturer are general and not always that helpful. The specific manuals for whatever component or appliance that is a problem are usually more helpful. What exactly is your problem?

RE: water water everywhere but not a drop to drink!

Does that filter filter out the soap and shampoo? Might be hard to rinse off.
