RE: Drill motor for stabilizers

I converted my Rigid impact driver to a gas powered tool using a 2 stroke weed eater motor. The battery version was just too slow. Apparently it's pretty popular as I usually get the one finger salute when leaving. Well, I hope you at least mix the oil a little heavier to help with the skeeters!

RE: Drill motor for stabilizers

The next person I hear using an impact on their stabilizers im throwing their impact in the garbage or in a lake! :B Please use a cordless drill!This attitude is why I do not use campgrounds. Cram a bunch of people together with no elbow room, and someone will have an issue about something with another. I hate camping around people.... I have to put up with their BS in the city... I will NOT do it when camping. If I can see another camper, they are too close. Exactly!

RE: Hot Exhaust On Differential

At this point just wait till you get there. With the airflow under the RV the diff getting hot isn’t an issue. Just don’t open any rear windows while driving!

RE: Drill motor for stabilizers

Battery tools to raise and lower jacks/stabilizers has never been a issue in the 61 years I've been camping. Guess I'm not camping in the right camp grounds to hear all the noisy annoying battery operated tools running early in a morning. Noise bothering someone in a camp ground from a battery powered impact tool on a scale from 1 to 10 is about a 1..... maybe...JMO. Well Considering they didn’t have battery impacts when you started and only in the last 20 years or so has the average person had them. I don’t think your “1” on your 1-10 scale is accurate. They are far more annoying than that. Now put one in the hand of everyone around you and it becomes ridiculous. Just use a battery drill. Far quieter and everyone is happy!

RE: Water Pressure Regulator

I haven’t used one in near 20 years of RVing. Everywhere from the Rocky Mountains to the east coast and Canada to the Gulf! Always left my water on. I have one I bought along time ago because I was told I needed it. Never found a need for it. It now just sits in the bin in the water bay.

RE: Drill motor for stabilizers

Been using a cordless drill for years. Never got a dirty look from neighboring campers. It does the job I need it to. Yep, that’s because you are using a drill and not an impact! :C

RE: how long can one store a gas engined motorhome?

If you put fuel stabilizer in it the fuel should be OK. If not take it and go fill it up. Check it over real good for rodent damage first.

RE: Drill motor for stabilizers

Guess I'll switch mine out before I get assaulted at the campground. Probably a very good idea!

RE: Drill motor for stabilizers

Guess I'll switch mine out before I get assaulted at the campground. It gets bad when you have 3 people near you using them at the same time! I always used a drill. It’s better for the stabilizers.

RE: AGM Deep Cycle batteries

AGM is far, FAR superior to flooded lead acid. AGM is a much better choice! Although recently their have been some quality LifePo batteries that ar good quality.

RE: Purchasing first TT, need a bit of sanity checking advice

You will be fine! Don’t obsess about it. Remember you want 12% of the trailers loaded for travel weight. Figure minimum trailer weight of 6000 lbs, closer to 6200. 12% of that for tongue weight would be approx 700lbs. That leaves you with 950 for the hitch and people. The Hemi and 8 speed will haul that without issue!

RE: Just give me the bad news.

Do you know how to spell fraud? Yep, it's spelled M-A-T-T. I still like his channel, but that was pretty shady. Sorry for the sidetrack, though it does deal directly with insurance fraud. Fix the truck! :) CC I can go the other way and tell you how insurance companies don’t want to pay a legitimate claim because they feel they don’t have to. Or take short cuts to fix a car. I’ve had the writer call a customer to have their car towed out because I wouldn’t work on it. I don’t want a shoddy (unsafe) repair with my name on it!

RE: Electric bikes !!

I just wish the electric bike riders would keep their speed to “pedal bike speed” on our shared-use bike paths. Many of them are a hazard to walkers and other bikers. Dave I agree. I just got my wife an E bike and found that even the lowest setting was still faster than most people casually ride. The highway setting gives you 19 mph. I got 22 with full on pedaling. While it’s nice to go fast, most of us are out there to enjoy nature while riding! Guessing you have cadence sensors. Not matter how slow you pedal the sensor still tells the bike how fast to go. Once you start pedaling the bike goes to the speed equal to the PAS level you're in. Torque sensors are easier to go slow because they require you to actually pedal to go faster. The bike will actually go really slow in PAS 1. Yes I’ve been researching to convert my 2 year old bike over. It sounds like a mid drive kit has the torque sensor and the hub kit has the pedal sensor. It’s not really an issue as you can just pedal a bit to pick up speed and then stop pedaling. Not a deal Breaker but it would be nice to pedal as slow as the bike and person needs to go.

RE: Just give me the bad news.

Well then I would get a dehumidifier and run it in their for a few days. Empty the bin often. You’ll be surprised how much water you can pull out like that!

RE: Just give me the bad news.

Could be as simple as a BCM or a fuse. maybe (and probably more likely) rodents got under the hood over the winter and chewed some wires. You say it ran OK when you parked it? And yes water damage would be covered. its not from a flood. and even then comprehensive would cover all that.

RE: 30A Surge Protector Recommendations

2 main ones. Watchdog from Hughes. Or the Progressive unit. Not sure on the Progressive, but the Watchdog has a replaceable surge module. You can replace it yourself, I think the progressive has to be sent in. Maybe someone else knows for sure.

RE: Anode rod help

Depending on use you can get 3-4 years out of one. Only once did I ever get a year out of one! That still has at least one probably 2 years left I it. Once you get near the metal rod (1/8” rod) then it’s time to replace it. You want to be really shocked? Flush it out with a water hose with an attachment that has a stream. I just flushed mine and got a ton of crud out of it!
