RE: Black water tank completely full and won't drain. Help pls.

Wild guess, diaper or feminine product. Neither will go through.

RE: 95 Bounder 34J--rear leafs--shop recommendation

Bags are the answer, way cheaper, totally adjustable. Any spring change is permanent or spend more money. My guess is poor weight placement making the front end too light. I had a 1974 Winnebago Indian that had two 30 lb LP tanks, generator, fuel and water tanks behind rear axle. It was MISERABLE to drive over 40 mph, semi's would blow it 1/2 a lane sideways and you had to always watch the mirrors for up coming traffic to compensate!

RE: SURGING PROBLEM

That sure sounds like Torque Converter Lock Up in and out. I have had GM Vehicles that you could feel when lock up occured and it felt like another gear shift. Something to try, when it is working normally, tap the brake pedal but don't push hard enough to apply the brakes, just enough to turn on the brake lights. That will cancel lock up and when you let go of the brake you should feel lock up again. Watch the tach to see if it is the same issue.

RE: SURGING PROBLEM

Sounds like the torque converter is unlocking them locking back up. Most scanners and even free phone apps and using a bluetooth dongle will show torque converter clutch (TCC) status. Watch to see off the command is being lost to lock. If the command is not changing, then tapping the wiring at the trans and adding a light might be needed to prove a weak connection to the solenoid. Unfortunately most mechanics will not pursue without a CEL as a starting point. And at $100+/hr it can get costly for a shop to try to track down an intermittent problem. I had a TCC lockup solenoid fail on a 4L60E that resulted in weak and no lock conditions. It was easy to access requiring only dropping the pan. I don't know where it is on the 1000. Just an additional thought about the converter lock up- Have you had any issues with the brakes? Why I ask is applying the brakes cancels lock up. If a brake issue were causing brake pressure in the system it might cancel lock up. ??? Did Workhorse ever have brake hose issues? Just a wild guess outside of the box.

RE: Pita Bread

and you bake it where? As posted, in an oven or even a skillet on the stove. Dutch oven would be iffy because they bake so quick. They bake very fast and puff up then go flat when cool. There are videos showing them baking. They say they taste better than store bought. You can also add any flavors that you like, maybe garlic, onion, or??

Pita Bread

I was curious about how difficult it was to make Pita Bread so I googled it. It seems it is very easy and bakes fast, 4-5 minutes and can be made in an oven or skillet. Dough can be kept in fridge and used over a few days. The only difficulty if you want to call it that is it takes a couple hours to rise which is not a big deal. I haven't tried it yet but just wanted to throw it out there.

RE: Florida Camping

The Keys is heavily policed as far as parking somewhere overnight. They even enforce hitchhiking laws to try and keep riff raff out. The biggest problem with this time of year is Spring Breakers keep parks full and if you find a spot you might not enjoy it. I have been to the Keys and Panama City during S B and it was a ZOO!

RE: Fixed: Reverse lights not working

They should work with ignition on, engine off, BUT set parking brake!! In order I would check- Bulbs/sockets, fuse, back up switch and switch connection.

RE: Car Trailer behind a class A MH

He states MH has "20,000 lb hitch". That is towing limit, NOT tongue weight! Putting 2800 lbs tongue weight would be much over loaded even for storage! Even at 5 mph that he said it would handle moving around a campground. It's a fun idea but they should have made a lift up tow dolly. Much lighter.

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.
