RE: assist for toy hauler rear door

Ours is a spring lift. 3 of the spring slots were empty from the factory. I added springs and that really helped (but it's still a challenge).

RE: Near Brownsville, Texas

"warm and cheap" works for me.

RE: Toyhauler weight vs truck capacity

"I see 3/4ton trucks towing large fifth wheelers down the road all the time." So do I. The back end is down on the bump stops and they're passing me at 75-80mph. I'll bet some of them show up here complaining about "china bombs" even though their tires are rated max 65mph. Is it just you you're going to put at risk or do you have a family? If it's just you - go for it.

Protect 50A power cord?

My power cord is essentially out all the time lying on the ground. Is it advisable to do anything to protect the rubber sheath? Thanks.

RE: Tumbler fell out of RV door handle

Never one to give up on a challenge, I discovered that there is a certain position of the latch and the tumbler that if you push down on the end tab of the tumbler with the key in, it will slip into place. The latch itself seem to be the same as a standard one except there is a hole for a pushrod from the remote solenoid. I'm pretty sure I can just ignore that. I will get a new one to replace this Baker 359. Which ones have steel innards?

RE: Tumbler fell out of RV door handle

I know they're not expensive for a standard handle. This one looks exactly like a standard handle but is also a remote lock (that I never trusted). I'll have to pull it out and see if a standard handle will fit. Steel innards? Does that mean that some brands have plastic parts?

Tumbler fell out of RV door handle

Never had a problem with this lock before. Is there any way to get this back in or just replace the whole handle? It's the handle tumbler not the deadbolt. Looks like this.

RE: SpaceX Starlink Update

Let me guess. After they are in place, Musk will give everyone a SIM card and the internet will be free for everyone. Then he will go Samuel L Jackson in the Kingsman on us and eliminate 99.9% of the earth's population leaving an earthly paradise for the chosen ones. I'd love a happy ending but "This ain't that kind of movie".Good idea but only if Free Bird is playing real loud over the entire planet.

RE: Firewall vs entry in Hosts file ????

I had a stack of file cards with ones and zeros on them. I'd arrange them on the floor in a certain order and then have to act out the commands of the binary code. :BThen you're a classic Turing Machine.

RE: Firewall vs entry in Hosts file ????

OK - I'll play: PDP-8 with 4K 12 bit words was my third computer after IBM 360 and 1620. No operating systems on the PDP-8 or 1620.

RE: What do I need to know - smart car- toy hauler

I ride a motorcycle so the poo-pooers about "Smart" Cars don't get much traction with me. My DW's trike weighs 1250lbs and mine is 850lbs - more than a Smart would weigh. Voltage 3950.

RE: Flip Phone

I have a flip phone and use it to, wait for it, make phone calls.

RE: Planning a trip Jun 2020 to Nova Scotia/PEI

MikeJinCO, when you say you can boondock anywhere what exactly do you mean?Excellent question. Boondock anywhere has not been my experience there.

RE: Nascar Follies

I was a big fan but NASCAR has become boring. There's no drama in stage racing. Points this, point that - who cares. What about "Can I make it another few laps until somebody causes a caution or will it be me?" Etc. The super speedway races are boring - sometime I don't even watch them. Talladaga I watch in half an hour and that's just replaying the crashes.

RE: Charging electric car

Why not just convert ecar units to gas car units? Much easier to relate to for most peopleAs long as you use metric units.

RE: Planning a trip Jun 2020 to Nova Scotia/PEI

Make sure you do the Cabot Trail. I prefer counter-clockwise because then you're on the outside and can see better. Go to Baddeck to see the Bell museum. Take the ferry to PEI and come back on the bridge.
