RE: Garmin 1095 Mount

Well my Garmin RV990 I asume is similar. The suction cup stopped working and I ended up screwing it to the center overhead. Depends on how much a couple of screw holes bothers you in the dash.

RE: How do you measure the ambient temperature?

The cheap way is to get one of those stick-on thermometers that go on the outside of a window. We have a wireless with three remote senders. One under the propane tanks, one in the fridge freezer and one in the bedroom. About $40 from Amazon IIRC

RE: Ideas on selling Thousand Trails membership

I have never owned pne but O know there is a lively business in buying/selling them online: Search engine page I would not expect to get anything like what I paid for it.

RE: Denver to Lusk, SD to Rapid City

I don't recall that highway but we have been all over WY highways and they are uniformly in pretty good condition. Mostly good two lane roads. We pull a 30 ft TT

RE: Gray water joint leak

Assuming black ABS pipe then look here: ABS repair JB Weld Plastic Putty claims it works on ABS QWhat ever you use clean the joint with solvent, I'd try the 91% Isopropyl Alcohol that is so common lately

RE: Twisted Receiver Square

I would not trust any "fix", what are they going to do, weld a shim in to hide a twisted frame?

RE: Hospital RV park closing

Lubbock Univ Hospital has FHU in one of their parking lots. Maybe 10 or 12 spots. We had to use it last fall.

RE: Toilet leaking

If it is the valve leaking by then you can get valve replacement kits on Amazon. The Thetford is easy to install. You do not mention the brand and model but you will need that to order the parts. Lots of YTube videos on this subject.

RE: Chaning Differental oil ???

I did it on our 2012 F350 4WD including the transfer case and it was easier than I expected. I used the OEM Ford fluid. I also got a pump to pump the old stuff out and the new stuff in. Or did I use a drain plug? It's been awhile, definitively used a pump to add it back tho.

RE: What are these called

Yeah I know that's why I said 12V which is the right jack size

What are these called

The 12V jack that is found of wall pucks/chargers? I am getting cigarette plugs when I search. I want to extend a charger cable to my back up camera and it takes one of those plugs I'll cut one off a wall puck if I have to and figure out the pin put. TIA

RE: Propane Powered Engines Featuring a 7.3 Ford and 6.7 Cummins

Let me say I'm no automotive engineer, I was going on posts like this: ack of lubrication is a universal problem in the diesel world - older vehicles weren’t built to run on ultra low sulfur diesel (ULSD) and new vehicles are built with extremely tight tolerances, producing higher pressure and temperature, making the lack of lubricity possibility catastrophic. Every single diesel engine injection system relies on diesel fuel as a lubricant to protect and lubricate all the moving parts within the fuel system including injectors, in-line pumps and injection pumps. If the lubrication of the fuel isn’t good enough, the internal components begin to wear against themselves and can fail from excessive wear. post

RE: Propane Powered Engines Featuring a 7.3 Ford and 6.7 Cummins

I bet the valves will love it I doubt it, diesel engine valves get lubrication from the fuel. That is an issue with low sulfur fuel, it provides reduced lube.

RE: Propane Powered Engines Featuring a 7.3 Ford and 6.7 Cummins

Yes... But I think I would rather have this than a EV truck that maybe able to pull your camper ~100 miles at best. Plus these guys claim they're able to maintain factory power. Dream on if you think the ----- types will let you have one of these. They are busy attacking gas stoves right now after all.

RE: Propane Powered Engines Featuring a 7.3 Ford and 6.7 Cummins

Yawn.... Check out the energy capacity of propane vs Gasoline or Diesel. You's be cutting your driving range to a fraction of what it is currently. Or hauling around a massive and heavy, large propane tank. This as pointed out above is old tech and usable by short range vehicles only. Propane does burn very cleanly and probably improve engine life but you will pay for it. Same applies to hydrogen plus adding hydrogen's many other problems.

Surprise a/c discovery

Surprise to me anyway. We cleaned the a/c filters several weeks again and since we were actually running the a/c at the time I noticed that it showed a new behavior: it ran all day and into the evening w/o icing. Not what we usually see. Not to say it would run all night too, it would not icing after midnight unless it was raining. High night humidity I assume. This happy situation kept on until yesterday when it resumed icing after three or four hours of runtime. Cleaned the not very dirty filters this AM and its been running ever since. ?? This got me to clean out much neglected Fantastic Fan filters/blades which were filthy and that much improved their operation. We are in a dusty location right now
