Trailers & Fifthwheels / Hanging pictures etc on walls of TT
« Last post by Carin on Today at 02:23:57 PM »
Okay I give up.  What do you use to hang pictures on the walls of a travel trailer??
I've tried command strips, industrial strength Velcro, and museum putty.
I have visions of a nail gun in my future......

Destinations, RV Parks, Routes / Missoula,Mt to Lewiston,ID
« Last post by mso on Today at 02:14:17 PM »
Hi,
Anyone drive Hwy 12 from Missoula to Lewiston, ID?  We have a 40ft DP towing a Jeep.  Other option is north to Couer d Alene on 80 but 12 looks nicer and fewer miles even though time is about the same.

I have a Ram 3500 Crew Cab 4x4 Dually and a Artic Fox 992. I added bags to level the truck, and what was another plus was that it rides much nicer loaded. I could live without a sway bar, but I plan on one shortly. I think it'll help to improve the ride even more with controlling the sway. We just returned from a fishing trip up to Coos Bay and towed our 24' Skipjack boat up and back on this trip. 550 miles each way traveling I-5 northern Ca/Ore. threw the mountains and onto Ore. state route 42 west to Coos. I experienced more sway at freeway speeds on the curvey grades of I-5 then the slower speeds on the 2 lane 42 west to the coast. I know its about the g force/speed and what not, but I feel that for me the improved handling on a Hwy and all around there is a real benefit with a heavy duty sway bar. If you add a after market bar, get one that works with airbag suspensions incase you have/want to add those later. I was looking at some and not all where compatible,,,gregg

General Discussion / Re: QUALITY long handled wash brush?
« Last post by BinaryBob on Today at 02:03:10 PM »
I've always used the Camco one linked earlier in this topic. I don't connect it to a hose - just dip it in a bucket of car wash suds.  The brush seems fine to me. You can get better handles, if you like.

I don't know if this so-called "professional" model is any better...https://www.amazon.com/Extendable-Wash-Brush-Professional-Head/dp/B01C672PCA

I have the so called "professional model". Don't waste your money.
I've tried two of these hose attached telescoping brushes. Both models leaked at the hose attachment despite changing the washers.
Thus, they gave me unwanted showers due to the leaking, but also simply due to the upright angle in which these work.

I've learned the hard way, and agree with Rene and Gary.
My advice - Skip the "water-through-the-brush" arrangement, buy the brush of your liking, and get a long extension pole.

Now I dip in the bucket and use a large micro-fiber mop frame. I enjoy being dry during this cleaning project...

A Restraining order. I sincerely hope that you now have one. Simple to get and easy to enforce.

Yes, but it's long expired. And I have no idea where he lives to even update it.

I can see doing it, drag a pop up along for the grand kids to sleep in, etc.

Tech Talk / Re: Ford F53 PCM Computer
« Last post by regval on Today at 01:48:13 PM »
Found a shop with a Ford technician and he cleared out the PCM and reprogrammed it. It's still showing an error code P0605 - Control Module Read Only Memory Error. The problem started when the vehicle would shut of like the key was turned off. I would be going down the highway and it would just shut off like the key was turned off. It would then start right back up. I thought it might be vapor lock so I tried it again the next day. The next day it did the same thing the first time then the second time it went into limp mode and the check engine light came on. That's when I took it in to a shop and they got diagnostic trouble code P0605. Since after reprogramming the code was still there I decided to abort the trip and drove back to Sarasota. I had no more shutting down or limp mode issues but the computer is still showing the DTC code.

Give these guys a call...  they may be able to repair/rebuild (in Tampa) ..  https://truckecm.com/florida/

Trailers & Fifthwheels / Re: battery too lite?
« Last post by Isaac-1 on Today at 01:43:18 PM »
It sounds like you have the wrong type of battery, deep cycle batteries should not have CCA and MCA ratings, the CA part of those ratings are cranking amps, so you have either a starting battery or more likely a marine dual use battery, which is not a true deep cycle.

General Discussion / Re: Need advice about a GFCI outlet
« Last post by regval on Today at 01:42:28 PM »
To add to what kdbgoat posted, GFCI 120vac outlets are designed to fault (trip) when current to the ground wire is in the range of 4-6 milliamps ( or .004 to .006 amp).  The outlet fault circuit measures the difference in current between the HOT wire and the Neutral wire to determine the leakage.  All current being drawn from the hot wire needs to return via the neutral wire.  Any current that is not returned via the neutral wire is leakage current.
As stated, it's likely you have a compromised cable going to that outlet, either has a nick in the insulation, something chewed on it, etc.  I always enclose my underground ca bling in grey PVC pipe even if the wire is rated for underground burial.
