RE: Cummins Onan P2500I Inverter Portable Generator

Don't get fooled ! I highly doubt it was "Designed and Engineered in Indianapolis, In. by Cummins/Onan." It is a Westinghouse iGen2500 with different color plastic and labels and slightly different controls. The iGen2500 sells for $599 at HomeDepot. Unless your wife gets it on sale and somehow has a coupon to use too :) I love that super shopper.

RE: Dometic AC unit

Where is the thermocouple? Pull the panel off, and make sure the thermocouple is in the air flow. I bent mine about 30 deg forward into the airflow and it works perfectly now.

Peak Prosperity sounded the alarm on the virus on January 24th. He was ridiculed at the time... and was spot on. Late February, he said if you haven't prepped by now, it's probably too late. Few days later, stores were cleaned out. Here's his latest video where he's reviewing claims made by people that this virus is no big deal. Link to video

RE: Ford, GM, FCA Agree to Shut Down US Plants

Ford is looking to re start production of their trucks in one month. They seem to be quoting the expiration of the current stay at home order (at least in Michigan). So this may be a moving target. My contract job for an auto mfg is supposed to go back the same date. But that was announced the same day we all went down. I am not counting on it right now but hopeful. Have some friends that work at a major hospital here and not showing signs of letting up right now. I'd bet on May 4th being the date. Given how fast it's still spreading and the hospitals being overwhelmed.

RE: Ford, GM, FCA Agree to Shut Down US Plants

I think if you check it was the Chinese who let it get out of control. Simple facts are difficult to grasp. The real question is how out of control did they let it get. I haven't heard a solid explanation of why there are suddenly 20 million fewer active cell phones in China. Where did they go?

RE: Ford, GM, FCA Agree to Shut Down US Plants

More is the point they will be using 3D Printing to actually make the Ventilators. Factor in many CPAP companies can make the masks and Ventilators as well OEMs have state of the art 3D printing capabilities.

RE: Battery maintenance questions

1st RV dealer spew all kinds of **** 2nd The more the battery is used, the more frequently you need to check the water levels 3rd, if it's not be used, DISCONNECT THE BATTERY 4th WFCO battery chargers are **** and should be on your list to replace. 5th, if you plan to do any amount of dry camping, replacing the 12V battery with a 6V battery is advised AND then you must replace the charger/converter

RE: What can I do to revive an old VHS recorder/player

go straight to Digital, and make multiple backup copies. I have a 4 disk server running with Raid 5, each disk is 6T. I have a nearly identical server stored off site that's a mirror of the first server.

RE: Ford, GM, FCA Agree to Shut Down US Plants

This is one of the reasons why automotive industry should stay in the US instead of moving production overseas, especially China. We have become dependent on overseas manufacturering and when that supply chain is severed it shuts down production. More importantly is the equipment that makes die tools. Much of US equipment and knowledge is gone. We are more dependent on China than most realize.

RE: coronavirus...put it into perspective

Law of exponentials. Global cases ex china were doubling every 5-6 days. R0 (contagion factor) is somewhere between 4.5 and 6 (or higher). 20% of cases need advanced medical care. Death rate of in some countries is 10%. Italy is struggling with an overwhelmed medical system. We are in uncharted waters here. Never seen anything spread this fast, nor be this deadly, this fast.

RE: Ford F-150 towing mirror size?

Hope this helps. Recommendation: buy them. You won’t be disappointed. At a cost of several hundred dollars? I'll put up with slip on mirrors until I get the next truck.

RE: Generator - A/C issue

When the generator is first started, the converter will be trying to charge the batteries. That can be a significant load in addition to the A/C. When turning things off, that should also include the breaker to the converter. Then why does it work in eco mode?

Mobile OTR customers

Check your email, the provider is changing to T-Mobile. If you stay with AT&T, it's a $20 monthly increase. Change to T-Mobile, it's a $10 increase :M
