RE: Salisbury Steak Casserole

I have been making Salisbury Steak lately just using Campbell's Soup Recipe found online. https://www.campbells.com/kitchen/recipes/simple-salisbury-steak/ It is simple and turns out great! I do add a small can of mushroom stems and pieces chopped up. I also make extra and freeze it.

RE: Rent a tow dolly?

I have driven a lot of motorhomes and most types of semis with trailers but had never used a tow dolly. I drove my Chevy PU 140 miles to look at a Kia Sportage for sale by Hertz Used Car Sales. The car was in perfect condition so I made a deal on it and needed to get it home. (they were great to deal with and even took a personal check and furnished new tag) I went across the street to U-Haul, rented a dolly to bring the car home. The car/dolly towed GREAT, like it wasn't even back there! I ran 65-70 mph most of the way home. My only problem was when I would look in the inside rear view mirror to see that car tailgating me! :)

RE: Brake booster (hydraulic) and master cylinder (1993 P30)

Have you priced it at your local NAPA? Sometimes they are very reasonable on brake parts and it's easier to deal locally if there is a problem.

RE: Microwave dying

A neighbor gave me a high dollar Sears microwave that worked sometimes if you slammed the door. I replaced a $1.50 microswitch on the door latch and used it for many years. Many switches on ebay.

RE: P30 Suspension Overhaul

The p30 chassis is a bad item.Weak suspension. Bad auto park brake. Parts are getting hard to find and can be pricey. I am a gm guy but not the p30.Do not install air bags. Get the aftermarket coils. It is not inusual to spend $5000 on the front end and handling add ond. Moisheh WHAT a totally ridiculous statement! If you replaced EVERYTHING on the front suspension including the tires and rims it would cost no where near 5 grand! Not that you would ever need to! I had a 1989 Southwind 30'er and I replaced the worn out air bags and it rode and handled fantastic afterwards! With air bags you can adjust for weight in rear overhang. Try that with new springs- no options.

RE: How to check brake pad on a Freightliner DP ?

Some drum brakes are exposed and some have dust shields. If dust shields there will be a slot roughly 12 o'clock 6 o'clock for inspection of shoe thickness. Always check for oil leaking, grease slinging, ie bad seal.

RE: Has this happened to you?

Was also an episode of I Love Lucie many YEARS ago where they were traveling and stopped at a roadside motel and the owner (Tennessee Ernie Ford) stole parts off of their car and was selling them back to them!

RE: Has this happened to you?

There was one of these scams exposed back in the low 80's on TV where they claimed they heard a noise from M H rear end and told them it was the differential. M H had cameras under it, guy removed cover and dumped metal shavings in oil. Sold them their old parts back that were marked! Busted! Your best bet is to call the police!

RE: New Ford F53 Chassis

Gee, an engine with the camshaft in the block. How original. And 8 cylinders! Why don't they put one of those 3.5 ecoboost engines in it? Everybody brags about how powerful they are!

RE: Coachmen 24FS towing a travel trailer?

I have seen hitches that have arms that connect to the rear axle. That would take the load off of the frame and suspension and increase towable weight. I don't know where you would look for them. ??

RE: P30 front end upgrades

I have owned 2 P-30 chassis motorhomes, a 1983 Winnebago and a 1989 Southwind. Both were a dream to drive and never wandered. I drove semis for over 30 years so I know the difference. The only thing I changed was bad air bags on the Southwind. You might have too much weight behind the rear axle. My rv always has something behind it. I either have my enclosed dirtbike trailer (approx 2700lbs) or my motorcycle carrier, which is about 500lbs “floating” on the hitch. Its definently a bit more squirelly when driving with the carrier but not that different than when nothing is behind it. What can i do to combat rear weight? I towed a 23' Boat (5000 lb) with no problems up to 80 mph passing/keeping with traffic. I always ran 35 lbs in my air bags. You might have too much tongue weight and need an equalizer hitch for the trailer?

RE: Suggestion Selling RV

I recently discovered "Facebook Marketplace" for buying and selling! Amazingly because of this website. Someone posted a link to a M H they were looking at and when I followed the link I found it. There are a lot of postings on there and it seems less chance for scammers because you need to register to respond. Since finding the site I found a GREAT deal on an 18' boat and missed another deal on a zero turn mower by a few hours. You can't be too careful with money. I recently bought an item on ebay, paid with paypal and got notice from ebay that the item had been hacked. I did cancel the p p and got my money back. Have used wire transfers but made sure it was legitimate first. CYA!

RE: propane quick connect

You might be having problems because some LP systems use liquid and some use vapor. Liquid supply picks up from bottom and vapor from top of tank. Forklifts use liquid LP and the tank needs to be indexed in the mounting bracket to work.

RE: Bad gas ?

First bad gas can indeed clog just one or two or three injectors and .. Well the longer you run with it the more get clogged. Second. multiply ways to drain the tank Assuming you have a B.I.R.D. (bi-directional isolator device) you can simply plug in to keep battery charged. Disconnect fuel line at the filter and turn key to ON. firing up the in-tank fuel pump and let it drain off. Disposal of haz-mat (Gasoline) is up to you. I'd suggest a 'flash pan" and burn it But only if you are in an area where you can do that safely and without angering the fire gods (Law enforcement). Major danger in doing that if you don't know how (IE The other fire gods. Plastic Surgeons been there done that not fun) |Or a siphon hose.. or both. Then fill and treat to clean up remaining gas. DOn't forget to change the fuel filter for if the gas is bad.. SO IS THE FILTER. Fuel pump won't run unless you bypass the pump relay. Relay designed to only run fuel pump when you have oil pressure or 30 seconds for starting. Syphon out old gas and check with local fire department to see if they can use it for training exercise. Have Auto Parts Store read codes.

Tow it on a dolly with surge brakes. Dolly will always have some resale value too.

Ham Bone? Make Soup!

Christmas ham bone became vegetable soup! Why do I forget how easy it is to make soup? A leftover ham bone, pound of frozen mixed veggies, 3 potatoes chopped up, chopped up onion, 1 cup of barley (I love barley!) and a can of green beans, add some water. Bring to a boil then let simmer 1 to 1-1/2 hours and- OMG! I once used a spiral sliced ham bone and they sliced too close and I had bone chips in soup so check it first.
