  1. I have radio operator plates on the truck, the rv and the Jeep. They all have the exact same license number. Looks as far from commercial as I can get.
  2. Good way to use the skills you already have.
  3. “We took out my moms bush and branch so now she has to relandscape her entire yard.” Her mom must not be too Intelligent either or they Drove over her entire yard.
  4. Where is “Shopping at Lowe’s” on this chart. Probable same as grocery shopping although at Lowe’s I see everyone attempting to avoid close contact.
  5. If the lights unplug just replace them with a 12v bulg with the same plug configuration. Or you can unsolder them and resolver new bulbs in.

    If you already have the silver leaf I wouldn’t change. If you are comfortable with the software then why change. If you like to play, you can download this device and see if it will work with silver leaf. It might benefit some people that are having trouble with their gauges.

    there are two versions of the software. Trucks and Motorhomes. I use motorhomes since I don’t need the functions of the trucker version.

    A,Avon is your friend. Just make sure the color of the splitter is the same as your diagnostic port.

    Jack this is the one you need. You can turn of the Slower data stream you don’t need. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01CS1HUXI/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Review the device. There are several models. Since my truck has a 6 and a 9 plug port I purchased the 9 plug model in green that uses IOS, Android and Windows 10. I needed a Y cable and since my port is black I had to use a black Y. The green will work on a black port but the black won’t work on a green port. There is 1 pin on the green that is larger. This makes me compatible with all 9 pin ports. I can even use another cable to mate it to the 6 pin. It is very adaptable. Just make sure you have the correct combination. It works great on the Y with another device such as a Tucson brake controller.

    Yes. iOS, Android and windows 10. You need to buy the proper device. One is comparable with all three but others are not. You also need to have the correct plug. If you nerd a Y cord, it needs to match the color of your plug. A green cord wont plug into a grey connector. I found out the hard way.

    I have a scan gauge for my Jeep. The problem is that you are limited to only 4 gauges at a time.

    Once you get it hooked up, go to repair. It will show you everything it can monitor. There are lots that the computer monitors that we don’t have gauges for. I doubt if anyone has a load or torque gauge. To get a dashboard, it is probably best to download one and then modify it to fit your needs. I don’t need to monitor every little detail. I still have work to do. I took screen shots of the repair page so I can make changes that will work.

    I have no negative input. I did have to figure out how to manipulate the gauges. Once you do it is easy. They have a forum and will answer questions pretty quick. The map is more of a placeholder right now. It doesn’t track your position. They have several different devices depending on your operating system and how many pins your connector has. Available on amazon.
  16. I have the blue one. I purchased a socket that fit the square drive and used a ratchet. I only loosened them enough to use my cordless impact wrench. I was able to use a torque wrench on the input shaft with the socket and torque them down.

    So I bought a BlueFire device that plugs into the diagnostic port. I also bought a Y cable so my trailer brake would still work. You download a program for your dashboard. I really like it. I was able to improve my mpg by monitoring my load and torque. It also tracks my fuel used. I could have made it from Reno to Albuquerque on one tank with some left over but wanted to fill up in hollbrook at the maverick. They have rv pumps at the truck island and it is a little cheaper. Arizona finally decide that we could fill up at rv pumps without penalty. Here is a screenshot of my dashboard.
  18. You will probably need to extend them and pull the fuse.
  19. I pulled down my grill and used foil tape to cover the one side. I loose my quick cool feature but we don’t notice. It is somewhat quieter but you still hear it.
  20. We have been down to the teens without much issue. When the pipes have frozen I put a space heater .on them and it thaws it out. I also make sure my tanks are empty going into a low temp event so I have a few days to go. So fat it has always risen to about he 40’s after a freeze.
  21. I experienced this exact issue with my heat pump in October. My DW said repair or replace. I ended up installing a hard start capacitor and no more problems. It was cheap on amazon.
  22. I abandoned the valves buried in the belly installed by the manufacturer. They are left open. I added new valves to the pipes on the exterior of the rv. Easy to repair and use. For your leaky valves, try adding 1 cup of cooking oil to each tank after you empty them. It will lubricator the blades and seals.

    GY 114 Tire

    I don’t worry about temperature unless it spikes. I lowered my pressure because at 125 I was loosing tread. Since I lowered it I haven’t had any separation. I have been through a bunch of tires too.

    GY 114 Tire

    I bought the discount tire warranty for mine si I haven’t paid full price yet. Based on weight I should be running 125 lbs of pressure. Since I dropped to 118 lbs I haven’t had any tread peal off. Still watching. When I have to pay full price I will go to Hercules tires.
  25. If you have satellite radio it has been activated for the holidays. It also gives you weather and traffic,
