    • I have used electronic collars for some training, such as snake proofing, for decades. I am not a fan of any system that provides stimulation automatically (i.e. without the trainers input to initiate it). Every dogs reaction to these devices is different and the trainer needs to be in control at all times. I suggest you read the 28 poor reviews. Here are excerpts from a few. "The boundry would change each time you turned on the fence. When the automatic garage door was opened or closed it would interfer with the signal of the fence. If the dog was anywhere nere the garage door it would shock him even though he was within the boundry" "field changes all the time as soon as the collar starts to run down a bit the everything gets smaller this seems to be true with all of the wireless not just this one" "If your pet runs far enough past the boundry the collar stops shocking. Then she tries to come home and gets shocked again because she has to cross the boundry. So now my dog knows if she stays out far enough the collar wont shock her." "my dogs just go right on past it like it was not there" "the saint bernard its on the highest setting and it dosnt even phase him" "I have a 90# golden retriver, heavy coat and is used to running thru brush and heavy cover, the correction is not strong enough for a dog like this. Even with the longer prongs the correction didnt phase him"  
    • I subscribe to the KISS principle (Keep It Simple Stupid).  I set my tire pressure when the tires are about 65-75 degrees ambient temperature, not having driven and no sun on the tires.  I determine the proper pressure by use the weight from weighting the vehicle, using the tire mfg pressure to weight guide and then add about 10% for a buffer, as long as the 10% doesn't go over the max pressure on the sidewall of the tire.  From that point on I use my TPMS to monitor the pressure.  As long as all the tires, inflated to the same pressure, stay the same I don't adjust the pressure for very cold mornings or warm mornings.  Both your front tires and all your rear tires should be about the same pressure, set for the weight on the heaviest side of the RV.  I do take into account, when driving, that the inside dually will be hotter than the outside and therefore a few pounds higher in air pressure.  Note, I have never seen any written documentation from a tire mfg that if you have the proper "cold" pressure in the morning at 65 degrees and you are driving in the afternoon with the ambient temp at 100 degrees that you need to reduce the pressure for the afternoon heat. Note that if you normal cold pressure, in the morning at 65 degrees, is 100PSI then in the afternoon with 100 degrees ambient temp, you are driving at 60mph, the pressure will increase significantly.  Possibly to 115PSI to 120PSI.   Again as long as all the tires relative to each other are about the same I don't worry about it.  If any one is out of line, I stop and investigate to see if there is a problem.
    • Mrchips was referring to me on the hold.  Where are you currenrly located? I sent you a message with my phone number. Thank you
    • Yes a jar for cooking grease and oil is a good thing to have. Never put grease or oil down the drain. Never. I also use paper to wipe the extra oil from pans before washing. Did I say never put oil or grease down a drain.
