RE: Help with two Easy Dutch Oven Dessert recipes

RE: Help with two Easy Dutch Oven Dessert recipes

You mentioned your dutch oven was pre-seasoned but they do need more. I try to cook some batches of fried chicken or dutch oven potatoes & onions before I use any of my ovens. We've been cooking in dutch ovens for years and they are great.

RE: Help with two Easy Dutch Oven Dessert recipes

Here's an easy recipe. This is for a 14 inch dutch oven. Melt 1 stick of butter in your dutch oven. Sprinkle 1 box of white or yellow cake mix over the butter. Pour 1 can of any clear soda over dry cake mix. Add 1 can of your favorite canned fruit. I like peaches or cherry myself but most anything will work. 8 charcoal briquettes under bottom and 18 on top. Cook about 40-50 minutes. Rotate oven occasionally to cook evenly.

New a/c unit problem

So we decided to replace the a/c on our TT last week. The 23 year old unit was done. I ordered a new Coleman 13.5k btu rooftop unit. Got it up on the roof with the help of my son and lined it up over the opening and thought all was good. When I go inside I find that the old mounting bolts are 3/8 inch x 9 inches. The new a/c unit uses 1/4 inch bolts. Nobody in town carries 1/4 x 9 inch bolts. Who knew. Also the holes in the plenum are spaced 9" apart and the new unit has holes spaced 12.5" apart, what a crock. It took me a while to find some 1/4" threaded rod to make bolts of my own and add some flat stock steel to the plenum with holes drilled to the proper spacing. I looked at several places online that had mounting bolts but none of them specified whether they were 3/8 of 1/4 inch. Finally got it all done and it now works beautifully and much quieter.

RE: Cybertruck may have 1 million-mile battery

How long will it last towing a 10-15k lb trailer? If this "truck" could tow at all. Not long I would suspect because the charge wouldn't last long at all and would have to be recharged very frequently.

RE: 2012 Ram diesel with over 1million miles

regular oil must be good enough. Nice story. chevman Yes it is. Just think of how many billions of miles truckers had already logged before the advent of synthetic oils.

RE: Cautionary tale

So we bought a new to us 2017 Ram 2500 CTD last summer and decided to take our TT and truck out for a summer shake-down cruise. I'm a stickler for having good tires and spare for truck and trailer. We went on our trip probably 1100 miles with no problems. We were so lucky. After we got home I decided to rotate the truck tires and lo and behold the jack that came with the truck doesn't work. We would have been so screwed if I had gotten a flat because it is very desolate between home and our destination. I never thought to check whether the jack worked or not because it looked like new. I feel like such a moron. If it looked like new and maybe never used, are you sure you know how to use it. A lot of people are clueless around tools less basic than a toothpick. Uh yeah...it's not that hard to use a screw-jack. I'm not that much of a moron. When I turned the crank the jack raised up just like it should. When trying to lift any weight at all I could hear the gears inside just slipping.

RE: Not your dad's Airstream

My wife and I looked through some Airstreams at an rv show a couple of years ago. Holy ****! the cheapest one there was over 79K. They are just way too cramped on the inside. The aisle front to back was no wider than the aisle in the 1963 19ft Airstream we used to have. You're just paying for the name.

RE: A new way to tow a 5’er!

As jury-rigged as that outfit looks, I think it's pretty safe to say it would be sketchy at best. Nah, what could possibly go wrong?

RE: Stranded/broke down

My guess is fuel pump also. Breakdowns are no fun. Brian That's pretty funny. This isn't 1950. "Bad gas" is a thing of urban legend anymore. I have yet to find ANYONE that has actually gotten "bad gas" when buying it at any commercial retailer. They always know somebody that says they got bad gas or heard of somebody that got bad gas like their sisters boyfriends dads uncle in Alabama. :R

RE: Post your tow vehicle pics here

Here's a pic of our "new" 2017. Just bought it in June with only 33,000+ miles on it. It was a lease return and is like new. We've only taken 1 trip so far towing our 25' trailer and it tows like a dream. Compared to my old '97 1500 gas pick-up I can barely tell the trailer is there, doesn't matter if we're going uphill the truck maintains 65mph even in 5th gear OD. The 6.7 CTD Ram 4x4 will probably be the last truck I will ever have to buy since we are retired I'm 57 now. The wife and I plan to do a lot of traveling with this combo. https://i.imgur.com/LE0qrrE.jpg https://i.imgur.com/ZNawkSam.jpg

RE: Traveling to Austin from Las Vegas

I-10 the whole way Hopefully I-10 is better than I-40. There are so many potholes from the big rigs on the right side lanes and there has been road construction on sections of I-40 from Kingman as far as Holbrook where I get off since we started travelling this corridor since about 2002.

RE: RV dump station map

I have found that most Love's truck stops have dump stations which I find very handy when travelling long distances.

RE: Winterization

I blow out a line using 50 PSI (maybe 20-30 seconds for water to stop) then turn off the faucett for 15-20 seconds then open again for 30 seconds. Then move on the next one. I blow the water out of the lines the same way. I also make sure I drain the water heater as well.

RE: Full timers warning

Sorry, but tax evasion is just as much a crime as illegal immigration. Just because you don't like the approach to the enforcement of one law doesn't mean enforcement of all other laws should be suspended. In today's economy a cash business is an anomaly and does raise a giant red flag. The audit you describe would be the best way to catch tax evasion in that type of business. As a faithful tax payer I appreciate it whenever the government cracks down on those who cheat. They aren't cheating the government, they are cheating me! BTW, I am sure an actual solution to the border problem would be greatly appreciated. I reside in the great middle of that debate favoring neither open borders nor a resurrection of the Iron Curtain. Currently all I see is a great deal of the flapping of wings and righteous indignation on both sides. What I don't see is a workable pathway to a solution. Hmmm...I don't think I EVER seen anyone who even remotely looked like they were immigrants from another country camping at an RV park. I'm still calling BS. Immigration is an issue, obviously you don't keep up on crimes committed by Illegals, sorry they aren't undocumented they broke the law entering. Being retired LE I follow this closely. This isn't the forum for this issue but I would be happy to provide multi news article on the issue.

RE: Tires

I have always ran LT tires on my trailers. If you go over to the Montana Forums they recommend the Sailun's Good for you. Many travel trailers including my own don't have room for LT truck tires which I would happily run if I had room. The LT215/75-15 Goodyear Wrangler HT tires need only 3/8" more clearance than your ST205/75-15 tires. The ST205/75/15 Goodyear Endurance actually has a higher load rating of 107 than tire you mention with a 106 rating. That's also $118 as compared to $142.
