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

I have one in mind, but I’m just gonna wait and see. As our civilization crumbles in front of our very eyes, I bet there are a number of good candidates.

RE: Suddenly, rangetop burners not getting propane..

The main regulator is 3-4 years old. It switches between the two 30lb tanks.

RE: Suddenly, rangetop burners not getting propane..

There is propane coming in. The burners are weak. The oven burner runs but wife says it was stronger. Refrigerator running (but isnt that like a very small flame?) Hot water heater makes hot water

RE: Suddenly, rangetop burners not getting propane..

I swapped out the regulator and NOTHING. Still the same. What now?

RE: Suddenly, rangetop burners not getting propane..

I think it’s looking pretty stong that its the 10” pressure regulator. I’m going to buy one and try it.

RE: Suddenly, rangetop burners not getting propane..

I seem to remember when my main outside regulator failed... I think it was the furnace that was the tip off. It wasn't getting enough propane? The light users were all happy if I recall. Is it the heavy users that first show problems when the regulator fails?

RE: Suddenly, rangetop burners not getting propane..

Thanks for the info.. I am not there but I had the wife text me pics. So it appears as if there is a pressure regulator present. If you lift the range top, you can see the copper propane line entering. It goes first to the regulator, then the regulator feeds a LP service bar/pipe that includes all of the knobs for the range and the oven. I will be trying to light the oven when I get home. I didn't think to try this before. We have been having troubles keeping the oven lit lately......... I was thinking the oven problem was the pilot heat sensor getting a blanket of carbon on it, so I have been wire brushing it before the oven is used. Maybe its the regulator..

Suddenly, rangetop burners not getting propane..

I can light them, but they are weak and will burn out. -propane fridge happy -bled tank thinking overfill -all three burners same problem -tried the spare 20lb tank (known good, was used previous to this prob) -hot water heater ok, strong It seems to be pointing to the range, or the feed to the range?

RE: Rebuilding my eu2000i... (never did this before)

Petes Cycle guy reported that he decarbonized.

RE: Rebuilding my eu2000i... (never did this before)

Since i have it apart, should i just buy a cylinder and new valves? When you buy them new, are the mating surfaces all perfect? Do the valve guides come with cylinder? If so, i can make the unit like new, without needing to visit the machine shop which is 3 hours drive from my current location.

RE: Rebuilding my eu2000i... (never did this before)

Had it to 3 shops Shop 1: petes Cycle in crummy baltimore (my hometown): he got it to run. Died after 10 hrs. I couldn’t get it started. Shop 2: he had me buy a new carb when I knew it wasnt the carb because I know how to clean the carb Shop 3: he pulled off the valve cover and adjusted valves. Could get it to try to start with starting fluid. One thing I am wondering. It has spark. But is it possible to have a weak spark? I had this on my furnace (which i also had apart many times. Lol) where i had to increase gap to make a hotter spark. Generator has a new spark plug

RE: Rebuilding my eu2000i... (never did this before)

So, say if I order a new cylinder and two valves. Will they mate perfectly out of the box? Also, will the valve guides be already pressed into the new cylinder?

Rebuilding my eu2000i... (never did this before)

My generator stopped working and I had it to three shops. One got it working and after ten hours, it died (he said he decarbonized). The second two guys couldn't get it running. So I thought it must be something deep inside wrong. So I pulled the whole thing apart. Labeled things and put them in baggies. Took pics as I disassembled. I am now examining the parts. I found an old GX-100 shop manual online. This has the specs on things like valves, piston wear dimensions, etc. I have zero experience, but, having said that, it doesn't look to bad inside. Like I can still see the machining lines on the piston. You know where the cutter went over it? The valves look somewhat suspect. I did wiggle the valves in the guides and the Intake is tight. The exhaust wiggles a bit more. There is some carbon around the edges of the valve seats. The valve doesn't look like a nice 45 degree flat either. It's kind of cupped where it touches the seat. But I have not cleaned the valves yet, so that might be an illusion with the crud. I am trying to find this big defect that prevented the motor from running, but it is not sticking out at me. Could the valve carbon have caused decompression? I do remember at the end, when it did run, it had lost power. Any comments or big belly laughs weclome. lol.

RE: RV living and registering child for 1st grade.

I saw an area in Texas outside of Austin that allowed RV park address as valid for school enrollment. I wonder if there is a way to find out what other states allow this?

RV living and registering child for 1st grade.

I am wondering if this is possible and if so, how people do this? I am pretty sure I saw kids getting picked up and dropped off by the school bus at our last campground.. If you have a house with no wheels, you’re good. If you’re deemed homeless, you’re good. In between those two, you’re a non-resident and must be rejected! Lol

RE: In Quartzsite, thinking of Montanna.. don’t like mountains..

Now that you mention it, I was skiing in tahoe and saw Truckee. Some non-hospitable hills. Thats where all those people got stuck and ate each other.

In Quartzsite, thinking of Montanna.. don’t like mountains..

Going up California might be fun, but then, are the routes through the mountains fairly flat? Otherwise, it looks like I go back east to New Mexico and turn north towards Denver. Q: What are the flat routes?

RE: Best charge controllers..

Did I see a separate device you can buy that is a desulfator? Thought I saw something. Like it uses bursts of RF energy?
