  3. Laptop replacement

    rv/blue There are no websites listed there at all for me to remove. In my pea brain that is what they are trying to get me to do- give them permission. As soon as I click on something like a new topic I get the box asking me to allow or not now. The upper part of the box asks will you allow rvnetwork to send you notifications. shows a learn more link after the question. I just tried all this just before posting this and keep getting the same result. I appreciate you guys trying to help but if this gets too tiresome we can let it go at whatever point you want. Again thanks again.

  5. Fifth Wheel Rebuild

    DW installation. Hot and cold water, power and drain already in place. This is the shorter of the 2 units but takes a 10" plate which is all I require.

  12. Rats crawling into my engne

    "Fresh Cab" - Google it. The peppermint oil - you put a few drops on cotton balls. Put 'em wherever. The Pep oil is more tolerable *inside* an RV. - Fresh Cab (it's some kind of a collection of potpourri) and (IMO) pretty smelly stuff. But not anywhere near as bad as moth balls !! Easy to understand why rodents don't like it. The light under the hood - (i you want to do that) - extension cord up under the wheel well to a "shop light" (the one in a 'cage") - and close the hood. As other posters suggested.....put a note on your steering wheel when you do that. We all hate meeces to pieces. .
  13. Rust Protection/Lubrication

    According to https://www.wd40.com/cool-stuff/myths-legends-fun-facts that is another myth.
  14. This Ad is a scam! I reached out months ago and could tell it was a sham. Besides the fact that he has not sold it yet and it was posted in California.

    just googled "can you spray peppermint oil on a truck engine" and came up with a video, they guy soaked cotton balls with the oil, placing all around the engine. Said it works great, so that makes more sense to me, rather than spraying it.. thanks for that tip!
  16. Laptop replacement

    I won't deny that Chromebooks are generally cheaper than laptops, but I just purchased an ASUS 15" laptop for my wife with an 8th Gen Core i5, 8GB of RAM, a full HD (1920x1280) display and a 1TB HDD for $499 delivered from Amazon. This is a reasonably powerful computer whose performance ranks not far behind my two-year-old Core i7-powered laptop. At that price I figured I might as well get a full-fledged Windows computer rather than a Chromebook, especially since this one weighs in at less than 4 pounds.

    Cab fresh, I think that's what it's called, at Tractor Supply store and on Amazon. We use whatever will keep them away, moth balls, dryer sheets, lights, etc.

    Hi Jim, What I'm wondering about that peppermint oil is, isn't peppermint kind of sticky, since it has a lot of sugar in it? I'd be concerned about it on the engine, and different parts under the hood. I guess if you haven't had a problem, it's probably fine, but now that you've mentioned it, it's a good question next time I'm at the Ford dealer. Thanks for that barbara
  19. Safe travels and good weather for the trip!
  20. Yes, I was being sarcastic about them doing their job as guardians. My opinion is they are promoters of the of the big data companies much the way the FAA are promoters of the airlines, not their customers.
  21. Since the electromagnetic spectrum is a limited resource (there's only so much mega- and gigahertz to go around), it has to be regulated.
  22. BluDot adjust brake pressure & maintenance

    Interesting... (Note to self: find a hold-off valve to keep at 0psi until I apply at least some braking pressure; any specific advice on what valve to get, and where?!?) Thanks, Dick. -Don

    Always,,, like a religion!
  24. A little bit early

    Missoula newspaper had a pretty interesting article a couple weeks ago. Kenworth hauled the national tree from the same spot clear back in 1958, but back then the tree went from truck to rail to truck again. She's a little different than a bunch of cranes and a wrapped T680 w/ extending flatbed. I think they had to start loading it in February to get it there in time!
  25. Rats crawling into my engne

    I ran into this problem some years ago and another RVer recommended "peppermint oil". I was at a park that was in a forested area and the critters were really raising heck with the rvs and trucks. She gave me some oil to mix with water and spray around the RV and the engine compartment of the truck. I immediately had no more trouble with rodents. I buy mine at Amazon for under 10 dollars. If you read the reviews on amazon you will see a lot of people use it to control rodents. Jim

  27. Rats crawling into my engne

    Funny that of all things to know about Rv'ing, understanding rats is one of them,,,, I saw a lady alone camping where I was last week, and she had her hood up. I almost stopped to ask her if there was something wrong with her truck. I bet she knew about the rats! I think I'm going with the lights. .For some reason, I'm hesitant to leave the hood up. Too much risk maybe with someone other than rats messing with my truck... I know, small chance, but a chance just the same. Right now I'm at a nice place with three cats roaming around.. Not the first time I've seen "campground cats" so I think I have little to worry about here. I appreciate the dialog here and knowing what you all do. Funny though, up till last week, I''ve never seen anyone with their truck hoods up. Maybe they've just been lucky Barbara
