RE: Portable Wind Turbine as a power supplement?

Welcome to the forum. It does sound like an interesting idea. But... I'm not an expert on the subject but, I think if this was a practical application RV's/electric vehicles would have the system installed. Possibly the small amount of electricity generated would be displaced by the extra fuel used from the drag of the system while driving? And it seems like a fairly complicated system with the addition of a gear reduction system.

RE: Food!

Let's start with this premise: McDonald's does not make hamburgers. Those are beef (I think) flavored salt licks! Does anyone know what's in their 'chicken' nuggets :@

RE: Class A Troubleshooting for us Newbies

Welcome to the forum. Usually I would tell you to ask another RVer in the campground where you are staying. Most RVers are friendly and willing to help. Since you are living a rent free existence you are probably boondocking so asking a neighbor is not an option. If you know nothing about RV's consider hiring a mobile RV Tech, they could go over everything with you while checking out your jack/stabilizer issue. Did you check your breakers and fuses? It could be something simple or a little more complicated like a loose/broken wire. If you don't know where your breaker/fuse box is located let us know. Someone with a similar RV can tell you where to find it. On our 96 Southwind it's located under the refrigerator. Do you have a basic tool set and multimeter? They will be very helpful. There is a lot of information and experience on the forum, don't hesitate to ask questions. Someone will have an answer.

RE: windshield gasket for 1999 Holiday Rambler

I think your housing is fiberglass and won't be rusted out. Take your rig to an auto glass shop. Several years ago I took our 96 Southwind to a glass shop because of a small leak around the windshield, it looked like the windshield was loose. They said the factory did not use enough sealant around the windshield gasket when it was built. They removed, cleaned and reset both windshields using enough sealant with the original gasket. It has not leaked since the windshields were reset. An auto glass shop that works on motor homes will know what they're doing.

RE: Carrying a Motorcycle with my 2000 Shasta Sprite?

Don't forget, that 400 lb. Kawasaki will double or triple in weight when you are bouncing down the road.

RE: Out the door....

Sounds like a GREAT trip! Any RV trip is a great trip! Some are greater than others. ;)

RE: Who can be the last poster?

It's 44 this morning. Maybe when my brain warms up I'll understand what you said. :)

RE: Watch those glass stove tops.

My DW had a Pyrex measuring pitcher explode when she picked it up. It was empty and at room temperture. Tempered glass can be a strange animal.

The last last is the only last that counts.

RE: Cleaning the carpet?

It's not what you want to hear but, we hire Stanley Steemer for our home and RV. We've found them to be the best carpet cleaners. Watch for their specials. YMMV

RE: Kwikee Step Motor Replacement

Our 96 Southwind has the original steps/motor. I keep the joints clean and lubricated.

RE: Live with no dash ac?

Get the dash air working and hang a temporary curtain behind the driver/passenger area while driving. It will keep you cool.

RE: Engine swap.

I hope this is just a spammer testing the board as there is no possible conversion at this time. Anything is possible. Maybe if Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos got together they could come up with enough money to do a conversion. :) It would probably be cheaper to buy an electric truck and convert it to a MH than it would to convert a Thor Ace to electric.

The good news is, they can nickname their kid Smokey.

RE: Engine swap.

I've never heard of a swap for an electric motor. It sounds very expensive. Just a guess but, the battery bank will probably weigh considerably more than a full fuel tank. You could buy a lot of gasoline for the price of the conversion. It does sound like an interesting project but, would it be practical or cost effective?

RE: Electric/non electric scooter?

Yes, you can plug into the RV outlets. Why not consider electric bicycles, you can pedal or use the electric motor?
