RE: Winterizing black and gray tanks

I usually add one gallon of pink stuff to each tank after all of the other winterizing tasks are completed. It doesn't cost much and is cheap insurance. Valves closed of course. I find that a quart in each waste tank is plenty.

RE: Solar panel mounting; screws or toggle bolts?

Hello Brain Trust, I am about to add some more solar to the roof. When I did my first panel, I used toggle bolts and just went through the plywood. So the holes were a little large; that's what Dicor is for! My first 6' x 3' panel has four brackets and hasn't blown off in over 20,000 miles of travel. I am using 4" x 2" aluminum angle. My question to you all is can I just use 4 #12 x 1" screws on each bracket, rather than the bulldozer approach of the toggle bolts and still have enough holding power? What is everyone else doing for amounting method? Thanks in advance, Rick I used Well Nuts: https://motorcycleinfo.calsci.com/Images/WellNuts.png

RE: LOCAST Receives Unfavorable Court Rulling

If you are using what they paid to produce then you should pay them for that use. How much should we pay for over the air reception? The original concept was that advertising revenue paid the expenses and community antenna/cable systems expanded the reach of that advertising. OTA, (Over The Air), TV reception is FREE but you do have to buy,(pay for), for the TV set and some sort of TV antenna.

RE: old diesel fuel in tank

schmitts711, Google "diesel fuel polishing near me". FUEL POLISHING is a FUEL CLEANING PROCESS that filters diesel fuel in fuel tanks to remove contaminants... (Also known as diesel fuel polishing or diesel cleaning services), fuel filtering effectively removes water, microbial particles, and sludge from on-road and off-road diesel.

RE: Removing clear silicone caulk from exterior fiberglass

Apply acetone, white vinegar, isopropyl rubbing alcohol, toluene, or xylene to the silicone caulking. Spray or rub one of the solvents on the silicone caulking to dissolve it and scrape the area with a putty knife or scraper. Pour water on the area, wipe up the area with a rag, and vacuum it when it's dry.

RE: LED Bulbs

Because "marker lights" are seldom used while boodocking replacing them with LEDs to conserve power is not advantages/(not worth the expense).

RE: Questions about just purchased toad w / existing setup

Thanks. Are the brackets really vehicle specific? I don't see why these brackets wouldn't be compatible with my base plate, but I don't think they'll work with my cross bar. whatugetemon Brackets are BASE PLATE specific. Your cross bar may not be needed/used.
