RE: Printing?

"But I will endeavor to persevere." Keep at it Lone. The more I read of these issues with Windows 10, the more I'm glad I've stuck with Windows 7. Seems like there's more danger from Microsoft than any hackers. :)

RE: Outer banks

We took 64 from Williamston east and had no issues, mostly 2 lane but no biggie. We were towing our 40' toyhauler. Came across Roanoke Island.

RE: The worst Post Office in the USA... your vote

"The worst Post Office in the USA... your vote" Seriously? This is a real rant?

RE: Printing?

I may have missed it, but did you mention how the computers are connected to the printer? WiFi, Router, or some such?

RE: Portable Jump Starter

I've got one, but I'm guilty as charged with neglecting to make sure it is recharged. I've had a couple batteries fail with no warning. Some newer cars will simply not crank when the voltage gets below a certain level. They crank fine to that level. Old cars will crank slowly, but newer ones don't necessarily act that way.

RE: Check your bolts!!

The bottom line is this. If you had bolts loosen up in a few weeks or months they were not taken to spec torque in the first place.Again, read the article you posted. It explains why some, not all, but some bolts in some applications will loosen up if some kind of friction modifier isn't used. That may be Loctite, Nylock, castellated nut, jam nut, or some variation of that. Many trailers recommend retightening lug nuts after being installed, even if tightened to the recommended torque.

RE: Check your bolts!!

"Properly tightened bolts don't loosen. It really is that simple." Uh, did you actually read that link you posted? It stated categorically that "Yes, properly tightened bolts can loosen over time". And it went on to explain why properly tightened bolts can become loose. And what you can do about it.

RE: leveling jack stuck

I'm not sure I understand how pitting on the cylinder would cause the cylinder to stick. It would leak but I don't know that it would refuse to move. Is the cylinder stuck down, or is it stuck in the up position? Have you been able to move it since staying by the ocean? Depending on the brand and type of cylinder, it may be repairable. However some cylinders are not designed to be rebuilt and are welded together. Rebuilding one like that is difficult if not virtually impossible to do.

RE: Remember the bike box?

Looks very well done. Is the box made of aluminum? What do you suppose it weighs? Just curious where the license plate ended up.

Nothing new, just people being people.

RE: Is a stabilizer jack for fifth wheel hitch worth the money?

"What benefits does the stabilizer jack provide?" None. "Is it worth the expense and weight to lug around?" No. If you feel you have too much motion, invest in something like the JT Strongarm stabilizers.

RE: 5.9 Cummins Diesel Towing capacity

Thanks for the info. IMO exceeding RAWR is probably not a good idea. Some people think as long as your tires will hold you up... :)

RE: 5.9 Cummins Diesel Towing capacity

"Our newer 5er is a different floor plan and has me looking for a truck." Just curious, but how does a different floor plan have you looking for a truck? Just wondering mind you.

RE: Home made 50 amp power cord.

you arn't gonna find any. There are no right angle twist-locks. You ain't correct...:S As in - You be wrong!..:B Google "Marinco Park Power 1RPC50RV" - for several suppliers. Walmart appears to be the best price, although most pretty close. Note: The Camping World $44 item is *not* 50 amp ( = 30 amp). . That’s an adapter though, not a plug. OP is looking for a plug to wire into a cord.The OP was looking for a plug, but the adapter was in answer to the statement that there were no right angle twist-locks.

RE: Home made 50 amp power cord.

you arn't gonna find any. There are no right angle twist-locks.I have one that connects to my regular 50 amp cord. Works great. You might want to check around some more.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Tesla overtakes Toyota to become world's most valuable car maker "However, Toyota sold around 30 times more cars last year and its revenues were more than 10 times higher." For the June quarter, Tesla reported deliveries of 90,700, down 5% year-over-year (vs. 95,200 in Jun-19), compared to GM down 34%, Toyota down 35%, and Fiat Chrysler down 39%.

Yep, Tesla is still about to go broke!If it costs more to produce your product than what you net on the sale...

Well, you got to admit the consequences aren't as serious if they miss the barge.
