RE: I bet you wont try this. RV turn around

Since it wasn’t real, I was was hoping it would go over the edge and “kill” all the “not real people” on the bus. :W :):)

RE: DEF how old is too old?

It’s probably OK, but you can get on Amazon and buy an inexpensive refractometer that will tell you if it still has the correct 32.5% urea. Some refractometers can also check multiple fluids, like antifreeze, windshield washer fluid, DEF, and battery acid. :):)

Oh, I am so sorry to hear about that. Wayne was a good member, moderator, and person. Rest In Peace, friend. :):)

RE: Longer closure gathering momentum...

“ (not really, just pulling that old Sarah Palin gaff out of the archives for effect)” I know that was said in jest, and I accept it as such. But, just for the record, that was actually Tina Fey, playing Sarah Palin on SNL, who said “And I can see Russia from my house.” What Sarah Palin actually said, and is 100% true, is that “They’re our next-door neighbors, and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska”. While that quote even gets a chuckle out of me, It’s very much like the quote that’s always attributed to Sherlock Holmes. He never said that in any of the books authored by his creator. :):)

RE: Old fresh water tank spout replacement help

I remember those types of fresh water systems from long ago. The fill cap on the outside of the trailer typically had a PSI gauge built into it. I would be very cautious about pressuring a 40+ year old tank like that. A tank that I can guarantee you nobody has ever given a second thought to inspecting or testing, and probably never had any type of corrosion prevention, like an anode. In my opinion, you have two options. Either retain the metal cylinder and convert it to a demand system, which will require fixing the water leaks and installing a demand type water pump at minimum. Or, replace the entire system with a new plastic tank and a demand pump. I would replace it with a new tank and demand pump, myself. :):)

RE: F350 HD DRW mods for 4500# camper

I could swear that I remember reading somewhere just before the 2017 model year superduty launch that there were a few physical differences in the rear axle used on the F350 and the F450 pickups., despite them having the same axle designation. :):)

It’s my understanding though, that when the day comes that the FDA approves a SARS-CoV2 vaccine for use in humans, that will be the first time ever for a coronavirus. Is that a correct statement? There are coronavirus vaccines that we have in veterinary medicine. We routinely vaccinate dogs with one that causes an intestinal disease. There is one for FIP in cats that is not regularly given. There is a bovine coronavirus disease (also intestinal if I remember correctly - it's been about 50 years since that course) and a vaccine for it. Doug, DVM Thank you Dr. Doug. That’s encouraging to hear. Perhaps cautious optimism for a human coronavirus vaccine is in order. I’m always interested in and appreciate your input on these subjects. :):)

RE: Adding on board Generator

Actually, Generac no longer makes built-in RV generators either. They make some dandy mobile (towable) gensets, however! :W Your only choice is Cummins Onan. :):)

You won’t have to ask/tell me twice to get one. I hope and pray every day for all the medical researchers that are working their tails off on cures and treatments. In the meantime, I do what we are all asked to do in order to slow the spread. It’s my understanding though, that when the day comes that the FDA approves a SARS-CoV2 vaccine for use in humans, that will be the first time ever for a coronavirus. Is that a correct statement? But, like many other things that have “never been done before”, there’s always a first time. I never cease to be amazed at man’s ability to overcome seemingly impossible problems. :):)

RE: Bypassing charger Magnatek 6332

........ Did you replace with the one that goes right into that spot or take another route? I certainly like the potential of an easy swap with no fab required. Is it worth the extra money? Don't know....... Yes, I replaced mine with the PD 4645. I needed the replacement to fit in that space, as I don’t have another spot that lends itself as well as that one does. That was about 10 years ago I’d say, and if I were to need to do it today, I’d probably choose the PD 4645VL for the lithium battery support. It’s selectable with a jumper, so you can use it with a non-lithium as well. I think it’s worked out quite well. I don’t have the Charge Wizard pendant, I just open the front cover and use the button on the new fuse board. The charge wizard is built into the board, the pendant is just a remote button. :):)

RE: Bypassing charger Magnatek 6332

Another good reason to get rid of the Magnatek is what you’re likely to find when you remove it. This isn’t my picture, but mine looked just like it. :):)

RE: Bypassing charger Magnatek 6332

I had one of those little battery boilers too, once upon a time. I’d replace the lower section with a PD4645V or PD4645VL from The L model supports lithium batteries. I keep mine plugged in all the time. :):)

RE: A Minor Consequence of Touch Screen Technology

I also learned a long time ago to never touch the screen on the boss’s laptop if I wanted to live a long, happy life. I’m not talking about the boss at work, I’m talking about THE BOSS.......SWMBO....... That woman I live with. She was the first one to get a personal laptop. Some ancient Apple thing with a mono LCD screen. Not a touch screen. I had been using similar equipment at work for some time, and was familiar with how the image would distort around the tip of your finger if you touched the screen. It looked like ripples in water. I though it was cool looking, so I showed her what happens when you touch the screen. :C What happened was I realized I could only do that four more times and I’d have to learn how to do everything with just my left hand. :E :):)

RE: A Minor Consequence of Touch Screen Technology

I have actually tried to increase the font size of our hard copy newspaper by using the “stretch” gesture. It doesn’t work. :h I guess it’s broken. :):)

RE: F350 HD DRW mods for 4500# camper

I would try it with nothing first. From all I’ve read by owners of the ‘17 and up Superduties, the odds are very much in your favor that you will be happy with it bone stock. :):)

RE: Propane regulator has begun to whine quietly

Get a digital manometer on Amazon and check the regulator’s ability to maintain proper pressure under load. I bet you’ll be replacing the regulator. :):)

RE: RV fridge not getting cold on propane, but freezer works?

I’d bet your LP pressure is low. If the fridge cools fine in AC mode but not LP, you need to have the LP pressure checked with a manometer. You can’t judge the pressure just from the flame appearance. I’m assuming you DO have a flame when it’s running on propane, or you would have mentioned a check light or error code indicating a flame failure. Your regulator should be adjusted to maintain the gas pressure at 11” of water column with one of the bigger LP loads running, like the water heater or the furnace. :):)

RE: The one thing I hate working on is...

You missed a few :W Not sure how many amps a penny can handle, but probably more than 15. Uh......nine more amps than a penny? What’s the foreign currency exchange rate? My personal favorite :C :):)

RE: Fridge won't fit

AJ, that’s awesome. That’s the kind of “I can do this!” attitude I’ve always admired. You have my utmost respect, mainly ‘cause that’s just the way I would have done it! :B Unfortunately, the OP’s camper doesn’t have a single window with dimensions big enough to do that. His camper is very much like mine, especially in the size and design of the dinette slide out. The biggest window in our campers is the one above the dinette table. But, because it’s in a slide out, the window rough opening is only about 20” tall. It’s always good to keep all options in mind though. Your technique may very well save someone else’s day. :C :):)

RE: The one thing I hate working on is...

I’d rather wear my electrician hat than my plumber hat any day. Don’t have to be as concerned with nasty infections when I’m pretending to be an electrician. I prefer making sawdust to either one, though. :):) I'd rather deal with a black water leak any day. I can see it. Nasty infection, or death? RV voltage and current is enough to kill you. To each his own. I can “see” electricity too, with my VOM. Whenever I have to deal with a plumbing issue that involves sewage, I have an almost irresistible urge to scratch my nose the whole time. :B :):)
