RE: Laundromats are closed!!

Um, laundromats are no more essential than clothing. Just saying . . . . Yeah... If we all had fur and could lick ourselves clean. ;) We lack the fur, but we do have showers, so the licking part is not necessary.

RE: Traveling the summer

If you decide not to dewinterize, you should still blow out the RV antifreeze, resanitize, and replace the antifreeze, because it is biodegradable and goes bad if left in the lines too long.

RE: What meal to cook next

Spaghetti or lasagna. Salmon cakes, saw a great recipe for them just yesterday that adds mayonnaise, cornmeal, diced onion to canned salmon. And here's my mother's recipe for a fabulous ham loaf that was the wows for our extended family over the holidays. Dot Corbin’s Ham Loaf Recipe 1 lb cured ham, ground 1 lb fresh ham, ground 1-1/2 cup milk 1/2 tsp tapioca 1/2 tsp black pepper 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce 2 eggs Beat all together. You can mix this & let stand overnight in the refrigerator. Shape into a loaf, top with a pineapple ring and a maraschino cherry, cover with the sauce below & baste a couple times while baking in a moderate oven for 2 hours. sauce 1 cup brown sugar 1/2 cup vinegar 1/2 cup water 1 Tablespoon dry mustard And have you tried the famous 2 ingredient pizza crust? Makes a great pizza, if you just throw on some canned pizza sauce, a few toppings and some cheese. (BTW, does NOT taste like yogurt. Makes a really pleasant tasting pizza dough that nobody will ever guess is not regular pizza dough.) 1 cup Greek yogurt 1to 1-1/2 cups self-rising flour (or 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 1-1/2 tsp baking powder and 3/4 tsp salt) Mix in a bowl until it starts to come together, then knead it on a well-floured surface for 8-10 minutes. Add a wee bit of flour if the dough is too sticky, form to pizza shape and size you want, brush with olive oil, toppings, and bake for 10-12 minutes at 450°F.

RE: 12v outlet question

So I'm just sayin, but I used this inverter in my last rv's 12v outlet under the tv that was about 13' from the batteries for the last 4 yrs with no problems. That does suggest that your TV uses a lot less than 600 watts. I, too, would suggest putting the inverter as close to the battery as possible, just in case you ever decide to try to run a coffee maker, for example, which would likely draw close to 600 watts. AC current at 120 volts tolerates smaller wires than DC current at 12 volts. If I remember my wire guide table correctly, a 13 foot run of wire for 50 amps at 12 volts requires 10 gauge wire, which is pretty heavy stuff. However close you put the inverter, you should use a 60 amp fuse.

RE: AZ Governor Statement on RV Travel during Stay At Home order

This question was asked to a local news station in Tucson, and they got a response from the governor's office.

RE: 2021 College Football Recruiting Rankings Top (16)

Alabama generally comes onto the recruiting bandwagon late. They let everyone else do the scouting, then swoop in for the gems others have identified, so don’t count them out just yet. But wait, where is TTUN? As for the Buckeyes, Holy Smokes, but as good a recruiter as Urban Meyer was, Ryan Day is doing even better with this class. Of course, we’ll see where it ends up come December, but if he manages to keep this going, this team will be hard to beat in a couple years. Come to think of it, they were hard to beat THIS year.

RE: Furnace

The most common problem is a burner tube full of spider webs, mud-dauber nests, or dead stink bugs. Clean that thing out and if that doesn't do it, the most common part to fail is the thermocouple that ensures that the burner lights and stays lit while the gas valve is open. It is a cheap, easily replaced, and generic part. Last one I replaced cost like $5 at Lowes. Before you give up and take it to the tech who will charge you big bucks, it is worth just replacing that thermocouple out of hand.

RE: Can a modified sine wave inverter damage rlectronics

Be careful with any apple products. Their laptops at one time would fry immediately on msw power. Most heating blankets and mattress pads allow the magic blue smoke to come out when used on msw. That's funny. I've an Apple laptop from 2001 that I still use from time to time, and it runs flawlessly on MSW inverters. For what it's worth, most of the inexpensive UPSs seem to have MSW inverters in them, probably because the computer makers all seem to have gone to switched power supplies in the last 10-20 years. I think you'll find that devices with switched power supplies generally have no trouble with MSW inverters, it's the ones with transformer power supplies that choke. And I don't recall seeing a transformer type used by Apple since, maybe, the mid-nineties. I don't claim to be an expert on that, but just my observation. There are, however, many devices that do not like MSW power. I've a set of studio strobe lights that are like that. And usually what happens on most devices that don't tolerate square wave power is they get fried. Electric motors are an exception, in that they don't usually burn up, but they do run hot and loud, and are generally inefficient. In the final analysis, pure sine wave is the way to go if you can afford it. If not, be very, very careful about what you use that MSW inverter to power. Resistance heaters, light bulbs (NOT necessarily LEDs), and dumb coffee makers, no problem. But if it's got chips, and you aren't sure about a switched power supply, maybe not a good match.

RE: Router speeds OUT of our router

I would kill to be able to get any of those speeds.

RE: James Island CG closing

Closing campgrounds.. makes very little sense. IMHO, part of the knee-jerk panicked over-reaction by authorities hoping to show that they did . . . something . . . . It is a pandemic, there will be a lot of people infected, many will die, and yes, it is tragic. Absolutely, there are things that must be and should be done to minimize spread of this virus. But a little forethought would be very helpful here, especially a consideration of "unintended consequences." Closing down absolutely everything is going to be a disaster of another sort, and we don't need disasters piled atop disasters. Close bars and sit-down restaurants, cancel sporting, theater, and concert type events, makes sense. Campgrounds, not so much.

RE: Flatulence causing CO/Propane detector alarm?

Smoke, carbon monoxide, and propane detectors all have a shelf life and false alarming could be caused in part by out of date detectors. Having said that passing gas is methane, and it may be closely related enough to propane to cause a detector to alarm. Methane and propane are very similar, chemically, which is why natural gas, aka methane, and propane can be detected by the same devices.

RE: Flatulence causing CO/Propane detector alarm?

Yup. Farts contain methane, enough to set off propane/natural gas detectors under the right conditions. There are lots of folks who have talked about dogs setting them off in the night.

RE: RV Parks to be used to Quaratine people

By this time next year, a dose of reality will be at hand for us all, now won’t it? If, the prognosticators are anyplace close to right, by then around half of us will have had our own personal case of covid-19 from which to recover, and something around a million of us will have been killed by the encounter. I do sincerely hope that every one of us here in this discussion are among the survivors, AND that those who turned out to be wrong will have learned their lesson.

RE: Hand Sanitizer NBC reports the Tennessee Attorney General’s Office opened a price gouging investigation after the story went viral this weekend. State law bars people from charging “unreasonable prices for essential goods and services, including gasoline, in direct response to a disaster." Colvin confirmed Sunday that he would be donating all of the hand sanitizer to charity. WRCB reports the AG’s staff was seen hauling boxes out of Colvin’s storage unit on Sunday. But donating them will not get him off the hook. Yes, and if there's any justice at all in the world, those two brothers can share a cell in prison for a few months.

RE: Inverter Installed - Open Ground?

Agreed, not a concern. IN THEORY, and if you really want to "play by the rules" and insure absolute perfection, you should bond the neutral to the ground and then drive an 8 foot grounding rod into the dirt beside your rig, attaching it to both the RV chassis AND the inverter ground pin with a huge honkin' bare copper wire, I think 6 gauge is required, but I'd have to look that up to be sure. Not exactly the most portable setup, to be sure, so . . . . Good thing it's not a concern, eh?

RE: Cut off switch with solar panels

Can someone post a link of a good switch to shut off power from 270 watts of solar to the controller. Thank you. Something like this would be appropriate. Circuit breaker That one looks a little better but I bought one like this cuz it's significantly cheaper. Especially when you consider you don't have to solder lugs onto the wire. Oops, forget it I didn't read it properly. Your looking for a 270 amp switch. You misread. He's looking for a 270 WATT switch, nominal 24 volts, 15 amps. Huge difference.

RE: Cut off switch with solar panels

Can someone post a link of a good switch to shut off power from 270 watts of solar to the controller. Thank you. This is all you need. No, that is pretty much guaranteed to fry his charge controller. That is a battery disconnect, not a suitable switch for the wire between the panels and the charge controller.

RE: People suck

Herewith my hope that the Colvin brothers wind up having to eat that stuff, and basically lose their butts. That behavior deserves a sound whuppin, financially if not at the business end of a baseball bat. I was gratified to read in the article that the Tennessee AG sent him a squad of investigators, along with a cease and desist letter, and is looking into prosecuting him. He deserves it.
