Fourth Ebola Case - Doctor w/o Borders Doctor

23 October 2014 - 07:06 PM

CNN Story -- From the story:


Investigators are taking the case seriously because it appears the doctor didn't quarantine himself following his return, the law enforcement official said. The doctor took a car service to a bowling alley in Brooklyn on Wednesday night, the official said.


He was diagnosed with Ebola on Thursday.

Repairing Dash AC

14 October 2014 - 07:00 PM

My dash AC has been problematic ever since I bought my 2001 Newmar Mountain Aire in 2010.


Granted, my RV is going on 14 years old, but I've paid to have the AC repaired twice, but it's still on the fritz. It will work a while, then some new problem starts.


Are these RV dash ACs that hard to fix?

Beach, Take Me Away - Holding Tank Valve Seals

09 October 2014 - 05:16 PM

I'm replacing my gray & black tank waste gate valves because they were getting hard to open/close, and both valves appear to be originals -- 13 years old. It seemed like a good time to replace.


When I removed both valves (both Valterras), I noticed that the rubber seals (actually Santoprene I think) were in great shape. All the valve seals were still very flexible and there was no cracking or discoloration.


I could probably reuse them, but I probably won't since new seals were included with the replacement valves I bought.


My point is that I was prepared to see crumbling rubber, mainly because of what I've heard on RV forums . . . "Don't use this-or-that chemical because it will ruin the seals" -- and I've been quite liberal in my use of bleach, the so-called seal-ruining villain.


Anyway, to those of you who have replace these valves, what shape were the old seals in?

Looks like older MPEG2 receivers like 311, 322, 510, 512, 522, and 625 will be obsoleted by May 31, 2015.

Thank You, Travis
