RE: Internet question????

Well, I called Earthlink today. My current account charge is $5.95 monthly. I asked about a yearly prepay. What she quoted me made it $4.95/mo. I said to her...hmmm, someone told me they called today and got a yearly plan at $3.45/mo. She said they must have a lesser plan. Huh? Didn't know about lesser plan. Turns out it is for up to 2 email addresses instead of 4. Well, I didn't even know my current account was for 4. We've only ever used 2. Of course, they never offered or advertised this difference to us in 20 years. And of course, I told her to change my account to the lesser one at $3.95 monthly or $35.40/yr, which makes it $2.95/mo. Yay!! I've never been so happy about saving 3 bucks a month! Ha ha! Thanks again y'all!! WOW, thats even a better deal than i got and i will have to check, as far as I ever new I only had one email acct. and I was paying 6.95 a month. the yearly bill is almost cut in half so thats a good thing but just curious about how many emails I have. thanks for the feedback...

RE: Internet question????

hello, I have asked around and can't get a right answer so figured I would ask here since I always get great help here.. I have had earth-link as my Email and internet provider for years with a bill every month. I would like to switch to a free email provider like Gmail. my question is, is there a way to have all my earthlink email forwarded to my new Gmail acct automatically since i have so many contacts as well as bills etc that have my Earthlink email and no way could I even remember and change all my accts and subscriptions. Thanks for any help in this matter We have Earthlink, our original ISP used Earthlink for Email and then they dropped Earthlink in favor of their own home brewed email. We were given the choice to keep Earthlink but in doing so we would have to subscribe to Earthlink ourselves. First, you can change the Earthlink billing to once a yr, you will prepay for the yr up front. Paying by the yr can save you money but you most likely will need to call Earthlink to set this up. Earthlink will still send a monthly statement but it will be zeroed out until you run out of money on the prepaid account. As far as forwarding actual Earthlink domain emails goes, if you quit paying Earthlink I suspect forwarding Earthlink domain emails will also stop. You are far better off simply one by one, changing the email addresses for all of your accounts from Earthlink to your Gmail address. Exporting/importing Contacts and saved emails varies greatly depending on if you are using the webmail interface or using a third party email client (Thunderbird/Outlook). thanks for this advise, i just called them and they put me on the yearly plan for just about half the cost. from 7 bucks a month to 3.45 a month... big help and have been happy with earthlink for 20 years so guess i will just stay with them for that price. THANKS FOR THE SUGGESTION AND THANKS TO ALL FOR UR HELP. HAVE A GREAT WEEK..

RE: Internet question????

WOW, thanks for all the responses but for someone like me that knows nothing about computer talk and not really sure what some of the responses above even mean. i only use the PC for emails, pay bills and some searching maybe i will just continue paying the 6 bucks a month like I have been doing for the past 20 years and have had no problems... Hate to try something that I have no clue what to do and screw up everything and really lose all my folders etc. Figured I would save a few bucks if it was a simple task that I could handle... THANK YOU ALL for ur posts and assistance...

RE: PROPANE LEAK??????

The new trailer we had had a brass fitting above the tires fracture and leak out two full bottles as we drove from Flagstaff to Needles. Our current trailer this last month had a propane smell inside as we were prepping it for a desert trip. I sprayed all the fittings underneath remembering our last problem but found nothing. Letting it air out and then immediately returning inside with my sniffer I located a strong smell at the heater underneath the stove. Pulling the grate off and spraying the exposed fitting created bubbles, lots of them. I got some wrenches and loosend the fitting then snugged it back down. No more leak and the big propane bottles up front remained full after 5 days in the dunes using the heater every night. Once I check the hose's and find nothing thats a good place to start checking... will have to get one of those leak detector things, TY.

RE: PROPANE LEAK??????

The pigtails from tank to regulator is high pressure , bubbles would be larger and easier to find. Regulator vent and the flexible pipe from regulator to the black iron pipe is very low pressure. Bubbles would be very small. In ancient days, we used White ivory bar soap for making solution. Good to know, TY......

RE: PROPANE LEAK??????

To check for leaking pigtails, liberally soak the crimp connections with soapy water. Have BOTH tanks ON. twist and wiggle the crimp connections at the pigtails. Odds are, that is where they are leaking. YES, temp changes can cause those crimp connections to leak. They should NOT with temp changes. It is not unusual to have to replace the pigtails every few years for leaks. The quality of these pigtails has declined in the past 15 years. You want a pigtail that does NOT have a round ring clamp. Those are the worst. Also, keep the pigtails covered from the sun. UV causes a lot of problems. LAST, NEVER LEAVE LP ON, ALWAYS TURN THE TANKS OFF. Doug Hey Doug, good advice.. you have helped me out many times in the past for many years, and I thank you friend.. You are always ready to help out on here and a benefit to this forum...stay safe and TY again..

RE: PROPANE LEAK??????

Will check them, I know I replaced them about 3 years ago but like I say the sun out here and 120 deg, temps destroys everything...put solar street lights on the house back in may and by aug they were all destroyed, one even fell off the mounting pole when the sun just made the plastic housing so brittle that it just fell off... ty and when you do find and fix the leak, make sure you are coating all the exposed non metallic parts for UV protection. You can use 303 as a general coating that works good on everything or something like TriNova that is excellent for rubber type parts. Unlike hard plastics, the flex parts need that extra protection to keep them from getting brittle and stay flexible. good idea, i have some of that 303 in the garage. even thou my tanks have a cover on them that stuff can't hurt..

I keep having to replace pigtails, they start leaking where the fittings are crimped on. will check them first. thanks

Make sure you spray soapy water on the vent hole of the regulator. That's where mine was leaking. will do, ty..

Probably pigtails or the regulator. The soap will tell you.

RE: PROPANE LEAK??????

It could be a hose or hose connector, but it could also be a leaky diaphragm at the regulator...This diaphragm is a rubber disc that contains the propane on one side while the other side is vented to the atmosphere (via a small vent hole) which allows it to move or cycle freely...Based on the info you’ve provided it’s not the tanks... 3 tons will check the reg also where u said. thanks for the suggestion...
joelyn 02/12/21 10:05pm Tech Issues
RE: PROPANE LEAK??????

I would start by looking at the tank connections. Are they tight? If so the primary suspect would be the hoses around the regulator. 3 connections there, one of them could be leaking. As the good suggestions above mentioned, get out the squirt bottle with soapy water and get after all connections. ty....
