RE: Hard Core Shopping: Best Laptop Buy For The Buck SSD ?

I'm way out of practice with Classic Shell and its brethren, so I couldn't offer legitimate advice. This link seems like a great place to start though.

RE: Hard Core Shopping: Best Laptop Buy For The Buck SSD ?

I too will throw my support behind SSDs. I do IT in a shop with nearly 10,000 PCs to support. After that initial hiccup, they are rock solid and FAST. Windows 7 lack of security could bite you bad regardless of your financial status. As previously mentioned there are front end software products that will make Windows 10 act and behave just like XP or Win7. IF you live where Internet is not guaranteed, Windows is worlds better than Chromebook. Even an i3 processor will perform well with at least 8 GB of RAM and an SSD. I personally won't go smaller than a 15" display now, and the cost is minimal. Sometimes 15" models are cheaper than 14" models that are otherwise identical. I second the recommendation to buy directly from Dell too. During these COVID times, it can be quite a challenge finding good laptops. At least it has been for us. We have had to settle for Lenovo models. They are starting to grow on me. A lot of bang for the buck for sure. JMHO

RE: Removing Eternabond

It looks like only a small area is coming up. Can't you just trim that off, and lay a fresh layer over it?

RE: What should getting wheel bearings packed cost?

Just got it done at Les Schwab. Cost $170 per axle plus tax. This included new bearing seals which typically are replaced when bearings are packed. They also inspected/adjusted the brakes and greased the suspension wet bolts for free. It used to cost about $100 per axle plus tax, but a couple of years ago they discovered they were charging way below the competition (which I verified) and raised their rates a bunch. I don't like the price increase, but they seem to do a good job. I truly wish you the best of luck with LS.Just got mine done at Les Schwab too. Second time they've done 'em on this trailer.

RE: Got my New Tires for the Tahoe

Yep. Nice tires. I think road noise is almost a thing of the past. The manufacturers are getting pretty clever. I'm running 305/55r20 Nitto Ridge Grapplers. NO road noise. They look much louder than they sound.

Nice! On both accounts!

RE: Harbour Freight Jack stand recall.

Thanks for the heads up! I have an old set that may be part of this too. If they are, I guess I'll have to search for some other brand of {deleted} stands.

RE: Website issues continues to give me grief, no matter what computer/tablet/phone/browser I use. I fall back on the portal, which I'm using to post this now. It has been totally reliable for me.

RE: New and looking for a generator

I would have to say, at first blush, that venerable NT Powerhorse 3500 looks almost EXACTLY like that throw away HF Predator 3500.

RE: Hard start capacitor

In your original post you mentioned getting a generator. A hard start cap, or a soft start device may allow you to go with a smaller generator. BUT as already pointed out, if you spend a little extra to get a generator that doesn't need one of those devices, your overall experience will likely be better because you will have plenty of power for anything else that may arise. We purchased a 3400 watt generator that allows us to use our RV pretty much any way we wish without worrying about power. Also as was pointed out, the place those devices really shine is on questionable shore power.

RE: Air shocks on tandem axle - settle this debate.

I'm becoming confused. I thought you were asking about shock absorbers all along. It looks like my trailer (2004 vintage) already has the mounting hardware in place to install shocks (shock absorbers).

RE: Air shocks on tandem axle - settle this debate.

REGULAR shocks are great for damping motion. Shocks are not meant to support a load. Back in the 70s we used air shocks to jack up the back of our wanna be hot rods.

RE: Storing with gas in tank, for a year or more?

I've used Stabil for years with no problems, sometimes going several years before starting a small engine. I'm sure Seafoam would be comparable. However, I also ONLY use non-ethanol fuel for long term storage.

RE: Sway Problem / Need Help

Tongue weight appears to be over 1000 lbs according to those numbers. That seems high if you're using a WD hitch. It's already close to the max I think that hitch can handle.

RE: Cleaning solar panels on an RV

About twice a year for this guy. I use a ladder to get close then use squeegy with a sponge on one side, and mild detergent. They get DIRTY!

RE: Resealing the Edge of the Roof, Dicor, Eternabond, or Both?

I wrapped Eternabond all the way down to the gutter on my trailer about 15 years ago. It's been more or less bullet proof. The only caulk I removed was to give the tape a smooth surface to adhere to. I glommed a couple layers of tape over the those corners, then used a little self leveling caulk on the edges.

RE: New Cell Phone Choice

I recently purchased a couple refurbished Pixel 2s for $90 each. They are working excellent, and tons of life left in them.

RE: Modified Sine wave inverter for seldom used microwave

This is soooo much like the half ton vs HD arguments. Myself, I don't try to justify every expenditure, especially when vacationing or RVing. But I do prefer to do it once only. Definitely just my humble opinion.

RE: RV "Coffee Table" Books

I keep state specific atlases around. And literature that's relevant to destinations.

RE: Turning the Page

I just keep modifying the same old trailer. I look at new ones a lot, but always come back to the one that's done it all for us reliably. Happy camping!
