RVing with pets / Re: rethinking getting a puppy
« Last post by ArdraF on Today at 04:27:25 PM »
Greg, we no longer live in California but still have family in both north and south.  They were all close to the evacuation zones in Santa Rosa, Sonoma and Oceanside.  I just want to say thank you for all you and the others did to help save lives and homes.  A yeoman's job for sure!  And a particularly difficult one when looking for remains.

I hope you and your new puppy will share many good times together.  Yep, you need one another!

Rallies, Shows, & Events / Re: 2018 Quartzsite Rally - Reply Topic

Jeff, our plans just changed so we're going to miss Quartzsite this year.  That's a rarity!  Jerry's sister and family are gathering that week in San Diego and we haven't seen them for a couple of years so we need to do that instead.

We signed up and will go in early.  We'll probably meet at the Spotlight 29 Casino and go into together.  Stay tuned, Bill.  It will be good to see you!

The Shade Tree / Re: Quit smoking
« Last post by garyb1st on Today at 04:02:20 PM »
My dad smoked a pack a day, and when I was 12 or 13, he told me if I wanted to smoke, I wouldn't have to sneak around bumming cigarettes off of my friends.  He'd give me all I wanted and even teach me how to smoke.

I took him up on that offer and we went out behind the house for my first lesson.  He smoked L&Ms, and unbeknownst to me handed me one with the filter cut off.  Really nasty stuff.

He showed me how real men smoke, taking a long drag to get that good stuff deep into the lungs.  Not any of that shallow puff-puff sissy stuff.  I lit up and as I took my first drag he gave me a strong slap on the back for effect.

Several minutes later I finished coughing and throwing up.  I've never wanted a cigarette since then.  Aversion therapy works.

My dad tried that with alcohol. It didn't take.   ;D

General Discussion / Re: Wheel polish
« Last post by Rene T on Today at 03:53:13 PM »
Unfortunately, it might be the clear coat itself they spray over the aluminum wheel. If you thought it was hard water spots, try a little vinegar and rag. But I'm guessing it's the clear coat.  I've heard of others, that sand with like 1000 grit sandpaper and respray the clearcoat.

I believe that's my issue. I wonder if Rustoleum clear coat would work.

Tech Talk / Re: Generator Won't start
« Last post by ClickHill on Today at 03:37:14 PM »
That is possible and I might have to do that.  Right now we have identified a FIRMS software problem between the Magnum 2800 inverter and the inverter control panel.  I have been working with a Magnum/Precision Control technician to resolve this issue first.  This is a known problem with this control panel and I am currently in a 6 hour battery test with the control panel removed to determine if the problem is with the control panel or the inverter itself.  Once I have the inverter issue resolved that "might" also resolve my gen problem.  I'm hoping the only problem with the gen has been a lack of power all along and there isn't actually anything wrong with it. Fingers crossed.

Towing and towables / Re: towable toads
« Last post by JakeR on Today at 02:49:57 PM »
Towing a 2010 Toyota Corolla S manual transmission.  Cost was less than $8K for only 69K miles.  Excellent shape, easy tow, large trunk and can easily carry 4 people.  Rather gutless going up mountains so we just get a run for it but it is a good tow car for us.  Fantastic heater, air conditioning pretty good.  Happy with our decision.

Remodeling your RV / Do you use curtain rod screws in your walls?
« Last post by PattyRN on Today at 02:46:21 PM »
I removed all the hideous valances, painted the darker portions in our living area, put the blinds back up and now I'm ready to hang curtain rods.  I thought about using command hooks spray painted the color of my rods but my big window is so high up that the top of the curtain rod would be below the top of the blind.  The only other option is to use the small screws that came with the rods.  Has anyone tried this successfully?  I have a 2015 Montana Mountaineer.

Fulltiming / Re: Going full time. What tools should I take?
« Last post by TonyDtorch on Today at 02:04:10 PM »
Chances are If you overthink it you'll end up carrying around a whole bunch of extra weight that you will seldom use other than to loan it out to other people.

As a Retired shop owner....I sold all my Snap-on and Milwaukee stuff,  and I now have a bucket of the essential hand tools that it would take to repair a some of the typical RV stuff and a Home Depot battery drill/tool set.

  If I ever need an inch pound torque wrench or 17m/m deep swivel-socket... I will just buy a cheap one at Harbor Freight and throw it in the dumpster when the job is finished.

However, what I've found is... When people that worked with tools retire...they sell all their cool tools to the other guys that retire,     so there's usually this friendly retired guy in a huge motorhome that carries around a full garage with rollaways/welders etc...and he's just a couple spaces down from you.

 Are you retired or not... ;)
