RE: Payment method

Go talk to your local credit union. A real live person face to face, the manager.

RE: leaking pipes

While you're at it, snake the drain pipes up on the roof.

RE: Refrigerator Smell - Yuck!

You might try an Ozone Generator and direct it into the fridge-freezer.

RE: "Solar" Sub-Forum

I need an online tutorial of how RV Solar system work. The more I search online the more confusicated I become. Can anyone recommend anything? Thanks

RE: Coleman Triton stove sucks! Replacement?

^^^^^^ I've purchased new leather cups on ebay. Prices used to be a couple of bucks apiece but now people that have them to sell are asking a kings ransom. You might as well check it out anyway.

RE: Side-Trip Report: Great Salt Plains SP, OK

The Highway 412 you were on is just about the longest straight run in America. One section is 47.7 miles and is arrow straight, and the 2nd section is 65.5 miles of arrow straight miles. The tiny town you mentioned, Kenton, is one of the USA's best Dark Sky astronomy viewing areas, as there is just nothing really out there. You can google Okie Tex Star Party dot com, and see how people come from all across the USA as well as Canada and sometimes from other Continents. If you are an amateur astronomer, this place should be on your short list.

RE: Coleman Triton stove sucks! Replacement?

I have a 3 burner coleman gas stove I purchased new in 1977, so that's 44 years, and it's still working fine.

RE: RF getting into Winnebago Furnace!!

Go to and to the forums section, the Mobil subsection or others you'll figure out which one, and ask your question there.

RE: Good Sam ERS Hung Us Out to Dry

Good Sam is NOT in the business to provide roadside assistance. Good Sam IS in the the business to make money. Period. Let that sink in.

RE: Air compressors

Well that's an interesting question and it may call for an unconventional answer. You could purchase an air bottle (similar to a scuba tank, or actually an old scuba tank) like the rock crawler folks use. They use these to air up tires in the middle of nowhere or to run air tools etc. These are very strong air bottles that handle a lot of high pressure air. You'd need a regulator of course. You wouldn't want to waste the high pressure, so you'd want to use your air compressor to put air into the tire (that your compressor could reasonably handle) and then top off the tire from the bottle. That's one possibility and certainly a unique possibility. Good luck.

RE: interstate 40 from New York to Las Vegas

I think I'd go zippity doodah to St Louis. In St Louis pick up I-44 to Oklahoma City. In OKC pickup I-40 and head west. New York to I-40 has tons of options. Personally I'd cross the Mississippi River above Memphis, do not go through Memphis. If the weather is good I might take I-70 through Denver and cross into Utah. In Utah get on I-15 and head south to Lost Wages NV. If the weather is not good, wintertime weather, I HATE driving I-70 from Denver going west. NO way I am going to put tire chains on. Eisenhower is good but the weather gets rough in the wintertime. Yeah Colorado does a good job snow plowing but I just don't want to mess with it. If you decide to go through Denver make sure the weather is good, then run it straight through to Grand Junction, don't dilly dally and stop and have the weather turn on you. If you're in Denver and the weather forecast goes bad, take I-25 south to Albuquerque and I-40. Best wishes to you, good luck.

RE: Are Butyl Tapes Equal?

Consider using Eternabond. That stuff seriously sticks!!!
OkieGene 09/22/21 11:21pm Tech Issues
RE: What's in your tool kit? What about other must-haves?

I'd definitely carry a roll of Eternabond tape and a quality caulk gun ($15-ish for a dripless unit) and a couple tubes of Dicor, along with a roll of Butyl tape. Some quality duck tape too. I have one of those reflective vests you see highway crews wearing, they only cost a few bucks. I'd add to that a package of the reflective triangles (don't buy the cheapies, they blow over too easily, get the ones the 18-wheelers use. Harbor Freight sells some battery powered RED flashing light things, they only cost around $5 or $6. I have some and they are awesome. On that note, plenty of flashlights and electric lantern, battery powered (around $10 at Harbor Freight. A weather radio is a must. Buy a larger and better fire extinguisher, the one you have now most likely is the size that will barely put out a cigarette butt.

RE: What's in your tool kit? What about other must-haves?

Torx bit screwdrivers in addition to slotted and Phillips. Unless the RV industry has changed Torx screws are their favorite fastener after staples. I'd look things over carefully, you might have some fasteners that use the Square Bits, the Robertson type.

RE: Kohler 5CKM21 no compression in both cylinders

I think, if this were me, I'd call a Mobil RV Tech to come out and perform an analysis, and then go from there.

RE: What's in your tool kit? What about other must-haves?

Multi-meter and have the basic knowledge on how to use it. This is something I hadn't thought of, thanks! Do you think we should get a traditional one with leads, or a clamping type? Yes, absolutely Yes. You can buy a single unit that has both the clamp on as well as leads.

RE: Getting Through OK City

We always use the turnpike when headed West or coming back home but we have the pikepass so don't know how much the toll is. Road is so much better that way.. Hey! You’re supposed to be doing Field Day today! Not messing around on the internet! Um, well uh, never mind. Carry on. Lol 73’s de N5USS

RE: Getting Through OK City

Oklahoma is going to get rid of the toll booths and go with either a PikePass or will bill you via the US Mail (based from tag reading). This is not in effect yet but it is coming. How do you pay on the Kilpatric right now. I have a PikePass since I live here (but I do plan on moving to Green Valley in 2 years at retirement). PikePass originated in Oklahoma, now Oklahoma/Texas/Kansas are all linked together for travelers and billing purposes. July 25th is the last day of being able to pay cash for any Oklahoma Turnpike. At this same time they are switching over to a license plate reader and will send you a bill in the mail to pay. Basically you'll just cruise right on through without ever slowing down and stopping, impeding traffic, etc.
