RE: The GEO Method and Space Heaters - Thoughts?

I run 1 or 2 cheap electric heaters. I run a heavy duty extension cord to the pedestal 120 outlet and through the slide seal to the inside and plug it in, this way its not taking and of my 30 amp power so I can run other things in the morning.

RE: Visible Phone Hotspot

One advantage of a cell modem (travel router) is the ability to add an external antenna. In fact, most cell modems have two antenna connections, allowing dual external antennas in a MIMO configuration resulting in considerable data speed increases. Thanks for the explanation. I dont have visible so can have multiple connections and also have the surecall booster so I can put an antenna up on a telescoping rod in those fringe areas.

RE: Visible Phone Hotspot

Just a curious question as to why folks are using travel routers. It seems most phones/mifi devices have a hotspot feature where they can share the connection so I wanted to know of why go through the trouble of all the other setups people have.

RE: I-71 to I-70 thru Columbus Ohio

The 70 still has construction in downtown but its not for very long so I would still go through if its the closest route you have. I would avoid rush hour but other than that it is manageable

RE: Storing My Diesel Truck Over Winter Advice

I fill it up, throw in a can of seafoam and put it on a batteryminder plus maintainer. At least I feel like I have done what I can while its in storage.

RE: Adding fan behind refrigerator...worthwhile??

The best part of this story is that I did not have to go to ER while doing this mod!! Then you must have been doing it wrong. Please disassemble and try again.

RE: Honda 2000 won’t run my late model home furnace

austinjenna wrote: So forgive my lack of electrical knowledge but is all that I would need to do is get a 110 plug, then run a small jumper from the ground to the neutral(white/silver) side of the plug and plug that into the generator? My assumption is that instead of using a 110 plug I could also do it for the 30 amp outlet on the generator and therefore free up a 110 outlet. My genny has 2 - 110 outlets and 1-30 amp outlet Thanks For 5 years, I have been using a bonding plug, exactly as you describe, so my PI EMS will let my Honda EU2000i current into the trailer. I finally got tired of fooling with the plug this summer and opened up the Honda's faceplate. I jumpered the GROUND to the NEUTRAL on the Honda's receptacle, itself. So, yes, you can jumper the back of the 30 amp outlet. Or, if it is easier, jumper the back of the 15 amp outlet. It doesn't matter which outlet you jumper. A few weeks later, I came across another camper who was complaining about having to disable his PI EMS when running his generator. I gave him my (now unneeded) bonding plug and told him to plug it INTO THE GENERATOR, ITSELF. Thanks. I have an EU2000 and it does run my house furnace and have done that when the power has gone out in winter. I was curious about this for my daughter who will be getting a new furnace and has a ryobi inverter generator and being able to set her up and what might need to be done.

RE: Bedding Brakes

Who would have thought after 50yrs of just putting on new pads/drums/rotors we were all doing it wrong LOL. I am in the crowd of putting them on and driving it - done.

RE: Proud of my Costco cheap Firman Gen

Don't forget that back in the day there were really 2 choices for a quality generator, Honda or Yamaha. Those times have changed and there are many nice ones out that folks have had great luck with and are not as expensive. What I never will understand is why someone will buy something and then not take care of it. I am sure your owners manual would not say to store it for a year with old gas in it. But then again its yours so do with it what you will.

RE: Trailersavor vs Anderson Ultimate

Another BD3 user here and after having a reese solid hitch I would never go back to a solid one. You do get what you pay for, my bed is chock full of firewood as well.

RE: Lippert six point levelling jacks

this video doesnt make sence to me. I only have the 4 point, but once there is pressure on all 4 pads it doesnt matter how high the tires are going to come off the ground the rig isn't moving. but my rear and front jacks look substantualy beefier than thoes ones.. elecric vs hydryalic I guess. I just had to use them to lift one side of the 5th so the tires were 1" off the ground a coupel weeks ago to change a tire. But the site was off level front to back, so when the tires were raised on the one side off the ground, the chocks were no longer holding it, that side slid forward

RE: Storing My Diesel Truck Over Winter Advice

I rarely drive my truck in winter so I do have an onboard maintainer for the batteries and keep it on that. Also as others have said fill up the tank and use some type of conditioner. Most importantly, make sure you pat its hood and tell her what a good job she has done this year and let her take a rest.

RE: Lippert six point levelling jacks

So is it okay then if you are off level to have one side where the tires are lifted off the ground? I don't have this system yet but sure the next rig will and was curious if that would cause any damage or its perfectly fine.

RE: PSI when using higher load range tires.

I have the Goodyear Endurance and run them at 80psi as they suggest.

RE: Trailersavor vs Anderson Ultimate

I had a Reese solid hitch for years and had no issues with it. I then bought a Trailersaver air ride hitch because my truck already rides like an old stagecoach going down a gravel road. This really improved the ride. I can look in my rear-view mirror and see the hitch doing it thing by absorbing the bounce of the trailer and not transferring it to the truck. To me its not a question of Anderson or Trailersaver but rather any solid mounted hitch compared to any air ride hitch. They are pricier but it is a one and done thing. I am happy with my purchase and if I ever needed to get a new hitch it would be an air ride hitch

RE: hot spots

With the proper support devices, cell booster, mimo antenna or yagi antenna on a 16' painters pole, I've never not had cell reception. Even out in the desert or miles from civilization in a forest. There is always a cell tower somewhere. You just need to reach out to it. I should have mentioned that I did have my booster, 25ft pole with antenna on it as well and depending on what time of day I might be able to snag a little bit of signal for a short while. Dont forget in a campground its more than just you trying to get a signal, its everyone else too so reach out all you want too - these were my results

RE: no noise generators

The power stations have their place and are nothing new and have been around for a while, they have just got a little fancier and have better batteries in them and now being able to charge them with solar as well. I think a well-prepared person has both a generator and a power station.
