RE: Mount trailer tires yourself at home?

I have owned a manual tire machine for years. I mount my car, trailer, motorcycle, truck, and tractor tires.

RE: Solar charge current

To visualize it, think of it this way; the current isn't pushed into the battery, the battery sucks it in. When the battery is full and stops sucking, the current stops.

RE: Goodyear Marathon tires class action?

It's a legal team trying to drum up business. No different than all the personal injury (ambulance chasing) law firms advertising on tv.

RE: El Paso Wally docking

Anytown, USA has multiple homicides every week. El Paso, Beverly Hills, Spokane, you name it. Focus on the negative and live in fear if you wish.

RE: LTVA "storage"

Contact the appropriate regional office of BLM's Law Enforcement Desk. Tell them you want to report some long term unoccupied RV's being stored in an LTVA.... I would use the term abandoned.

RE: El Paso Wally docking

We spent a night in Anthony/El Paso Texas at the rest area on Interstate 10 last March. We had a nice peaceful, quiet night. Our neighbor just outside the rest area was La Tuna Federal Penitentiary. They didn't bother us and we didn't bother them. I choose not to live in fear, the whole border thing is blown way out of proportion.

Seems he is always complaining about something.

RE: Cash Vs. Finance

I don't understand or simply don't agree with your reasoning. I made our deal online and with emails. Gave my CC number for a $500 deposit. Drove 900 miles, inspected the trailer, wrote a check for the balance, and left. Why muddy things by involving a finance company?

RE: Very good video on Buddy Heaters

Catalytic heaters do Not have ceramic tiles They have "glass"? mat that is coated with Platinum Which is the catalysis Yes “tile” was an incorrect term. It has screen like mats as you describe. Not the Big Buddy or the Portable Buddy. Whatever heater you are referring to, it is not the MH18B

RE: TT Tire Pressure

What many consider max pressure is NOT the maximum pressure. Read carefully, it is the pressure required to obtain the maximum load rating. You can increase the pressure beyond what is on the sidewall but it does not increase load capacity beyond the rating. When I had 50psi LRC (ST) tires, I regularly used a cold inflation of 55psi. Maybe provide a tire manufacturers link to this please. Read the side of your tire. It probably says something such as "max load xxxx at xx psi". Maximum load, not maximum psi. Roger Marble of http://www.rvtiresafety.net/ has addressed this a number of times. Here is one article he wrote that may or may not help in understanding; http://www.rvtiresafety.net/2015/07/when-is-minimum-inflation-maximum.html Edit; Here is a pdf from Goodyear about the 65 mph rating of Marathon tires. It speaks of increasing the pressure 10 psi in order to operate at 66 to 75 mph. The limiting factor on increasing the psi according to Goodyear is the wheel and the stem, not the tire. https://www.tirerack.com/images/tires/goodyear/Marathon_Special_Trailer_Applications.pdf

RE: potty without the rv

Most of the worlds population do not use flush toilets. Much of the worlds population has no toilet facility of any type. It isn't complicated, your ancestors knew what to do.

RE: Very good video on Buddy Heaters

My CO dtetector reads 0 (zero)when held 6” above an operating Big Buddy on any setting. Is that because a catalytic heater is a catalytic reaction not combustion... The Big Buddy is not a catalytic heater, it is a blue flame heater with a ceramic brick to diffuse and disburse heat. Model MH18B - is not a flame heater. It is a 2 tile catalytic heater. If you survive the most dangerous part of your camping trip which is the drive on the road to get there, use these heaters safely. Nope, nowhere on the Mr Heater website do they claim it to be a catalytic heater.

RE: Wiring Furrion camera ipo marker light?

May seem silly but did you try the camera with the lights on? Did you try the camera from a reliable power source before installation?

RE: Water filter upstream of the pump?

Tried it, pump continually cycled at an extremely rapid rate. I believed it would destroy something if allowed to continue. I now use a sediment filter when filling the tank and a .5 carbon block filter in the kitchen which only feeds a separate faucet at the kitchen sink.

RE: Old propane tanks on new RVs

Take them to most any of the exchange places and swap them. The LPG supplier will certify them, fill them, and send them back out. If the exchange place lets you do it, check the dates on the ones you get, some are new or nearly new. You get shafted a little because you get 15# in a 20# bottle but the newer bottle is otherwise free.

RE: Built in vs. Stand-alone GPS?

...All modern phones have a built in GPS that doesn't require a cell signal to locate the phone... You should have seen me trying to explain that to the pimply faced nerd (geek squad) employees at Best Buy. They argued with me that having Copilot GPS app/maps loaded on my tablet won't work without a cell signal. I regularly use my tablet for a GPS. My tablet doesn't have cellular capability.
