RE: Streets of Dreams

Never heard of it. Which service is hosting it?

RE: Employment VS Unemployment

Well, the main purpose of most low-paying jobs is to earn enough money to keep body and soul together. When the government tempts you away from the low-paying job you're currently employed on, with more money than you can make where you are, what do you do? Businesses get incentives from government to do certain things, farmers get paid to not grow crops, people get paid not to work. Nobody said it had to make sense: "We're from the government, we're here to help you".

RE: Amazon to close down Kindle lending library January 2021

It's an agreement with the "publishing" company, and Overdrive. The companies have a limit on the number of digital copies that can be distributed by the library. Actually it's not an agreement, it's a stipulation by the company. The libraries either go along with it or do without the title. And unless you have an old style Kindle or other limited connection reader, the book will be deleted from your reader automatically at the end of the loan period.

RE: Laptop Stripped Screw ?????

If you can drill the head off the screw, then use a left hand drill bit. They really don't work any differently than a right hand drill bit, but there is an excellent chance they will unscrew the fastener while trying to drill off the head. Haven't come across too much thread locker that is stronger than a drill bit. Must be some super special stuff.

RE: Collecting 5th wheel Tow Data, just for fun, 2000 mile trip

OP I am confident you can drive and chew gum at the same time.How about drive, chew gum, note passing traffic, note which trucks are towing large 5th wheels, what brand they are, and then noting it all down, all at the same time? :)

RE: Amazon to close down Kindle lending library January 2021

You also might check out The Fussy Librarian. Mostly free books, lots of self published, some well known authors, mostly free.

RE: Laptop Stripped Screw ?????

^^^^^^^^Exactly, that's the purpose of a left hand drill bit. More often than not it will unscrew the offending bolt.

RE: Collecting 5th wheel Tow Data, just for fun, 2000 mile trip

My only thought is don't get so fixated on collecting data that you don't pay sufficient attention to what's going on around you. Maybe let the passenger collect all the data, and you just alert them when there is data to collect.

RE: Blocking "Restricted" Calls on Smartphone

I've read this before, and I always wonder what you do when you get a call from a number you don't recognize, and it's from someone who borrowed a phone to call you for one reason or another. We've had that happen with our great-granddaughter. FWIW we get very few, if any, spam calls on our cell phones, but I'd hate to think that someone needed to get a hold of me and I ignored it because it simply wasn't on my contact list. I guess if they really need help, they'll call back...oh yeah, and get ignored again. :)

RE: Ultra Sound wireless LP tank sensor , Bluetooth to phone app

I tried it when it first came out a couple years ago, and it didn't work reliably for me. Sometimes no signal, levels changed, just didn't trust the accuracy. Perhaps they've improved them.

RE: The mac daddy of bike rack overload?

This thread is about who cares? Is it yours? Has it hurt you? Maybe you heard a generator like it and it’s bringing back bad memories? Maybe you saw a c rappy bumper and this one gives you ptsd? Wait, I know....just a bunch of busy body’s with nothing better to do than preach their suppositions!And another busy body complaining about their complaining. LOL

RE: Tire/wheel change on the road

... With impact guns I would say some guys can get pretty close. My buddies all change sandcar tires with electric impacts. Dont think I've ever seen them with a torque wrench in their hands. ...Well, a lot of guys think they know how tight they need to go, it's that educated arm. :) Many guys think they simply don't need a torque wrench. Seen that a lot. And if it doesn't come off, and you can get it off later, it's good.

RE: The mac daddy of bike rack overload?

Some of us have experience in things mechanical and know junk when we see it. Maybe read the Craigs List post: "The rack has been reinforced to support the weight of the equipment. "And that means exactly what? How reinforced? How much weight to be supported? And just because it's there doesn't mean it means squat. But it does sound good.

RE: The mac daddy of bike rack overload?

My concern isn't the trailer frame, but the size of the material. It looks way small to be carrying that much weight. Got to be at least a couple hundred pounds sitting, and bouncing, way back there. I'll bet there's a weight limit for that construction, and I'll also bet all that stuff is way over that limit. I doubt it, the bumper is 4" square and the square tube holding the generator looks to be 2" so it should be able to carry that weight. I used 2-1/2" angle on mine and it held up well.I didn't think it was that big. Looking at the square tubing it goes into under the trailer, that looks like maybe 2" square, so I was thinking the smaller tubing was 1 1/2" or maybe 1". Way small for the amount of weight.

RE: Tire/wheel change on the road

What are we on now, nine pages already? Just how many RV.NETers does it take to change a tire? One to dial Coachnet and wait for the tire to be changed.What's your Plan B when there's nobody available? It can happen.

RE: Credit Score

The only way to get 800 or over is to buy large purchases with a card and pay it of in 6 months or less and buy and pay it off. I use a Debit/Credit card very rarely and only at the gas stations with exception.Nonsense. I never carry a balance on any credit card, I use 2 sometimes 3, and my credit score always runs over 800.

RE: Tire/wheel change on the road

Going beyond the click on a torque wrench is not a good idea, that's why it clicks. A little bit probably won't hurt, but a lot can't be a good practice to get into. Proto is good stuff, take care of it and it will last. If it's rated to torque left hand thread, and it doesn't click, then something has broken. That may affect the right hand thread torque, but I don't know.
