  1. We were overnight docked near a boat with a parrot. 6 am every morning they put the cage outside because the damn thing wouldn't shut up
  2. Being a submariner, I relate more to the guy & the ape. Matter of fact, I think I dated her.....
  3. I recently bought a Dish portable, & was informed by my RV place that some wiring inside an RV could be CAT 5, sat requires CAT 6. Had to run new cable to plug into trailer & have it work. (Pls view me as a parrot, I don't claim to know what this all is, just passing it on)
  4. Wanna' talk about fabric & sewing heavier material? PM me, I am a canvas/upholstery fabricator.

    route planning

    Lots of traffic & idiots. Remember NO propane in Balt tunnels if you get tempted...............
  6. Whatever you buy (if more than 1) check that the mfr dates are all similar & with an acceptable time.
  7. I got tired of this too, and put in an "accumulator" similar to an expansion tank in a home heating system. Made out of PVC pipe & 2 ends
  8. Do-it-yourself accessory bidet?
  9. We just had a ceiling replaced (leak) and I have maybe 6 small-tube 12VDC florescents if you want something like that. We went with 5" LED downlights, updated the coach & look great. I think they only cost me $7 each. https://www.ebay.com/itm/5-x-4-75-LED-RECESSED-DOWN-LIGHT-INTERIOR-CEILING-FOR-RVs-BOATS-12V-CW/172113232306?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 If that doesn't come up, seller was "rvoutlet" on Ebay.
  10. Can't tell for sure, but may be an "anti-siphon valve", used on boats due to being below water line

    Singling the Volvo.

    If you decide to single by moving the rear axle fwd, or leaving it long, just be aware the input yoke on the rear axle is NOT the same size as the front. If having a driveshaft made keep that in mind. And it is a Metric tube on Volvos

    Singling the Volvo.

    I singled short. Short or long is your choice, but if'n I was to do it again- I'd trade the whole tandem to a yard for a factory single. Brakes etc are bigger, & same time you get the gear ratio of your choice. I went from 3.73 to 3.08, a little too far. Hindsight says 3.23, but I can run 55-65 in 9th.
  13. How about a battery impact gun, & adapt the crank to it with a socket, etc

    Convert to weedburner

    My 2000 635 came w/ a factory weedburner that dumped under the frame. I turned it 180 & it now exits thru the fairing R side. You can use my SNO to get the factory part, but there's lots of cheaper solutions to be had. PM me if you want more info
  15. When you go to the dealer for the "computer dump", be sure the tech or service manager goes over ALL the parameters you can set yourself, not just what you "want". There's LOTS of stuff you might not know about, time to idle before shut down, etc. Get them ALL one shot, same price, they might forget to tell you.
  16. I'd suggest you either put a bolt in them or get some T-shaped plastic ones from an auto parts store. The ones i mean have what I call "pine trees" on the shaft, push in & the little things resist pulling them back out. Seen on many cars to hold down plastic shields in the engine compt & elsewhere. Maybe a little silicone in the hole first. Look in the "Help" section
  17. I bought a used J7 off Ebay, not as many toys but does fine for cheaper than an S
  18. OK, you get points for being generous anyway. TKS!
  19. GAWD, please! Suburb of Baltimore (murder/shooting capital), Middle River. Shoot me a PM & I'll send $. This is a 5 button 2 unit duotherm control like this? https://autoplicity.com/10431708-dometic-rv-3106486008-sensor-kit-remote?utm_source=google&utm_medium=surfaces&utm_campaign=shopping&gclid=EAIaIQobChMInPLmu7DG6gIVVQiICR3ZxQSOEAQYBSABEgJxvPD_BwE
  20. Look for a drawbridge & dump it. It's the celebrity way...........
  21. I had a similar experience, no AC power to the curb-side slide out . After a LOT of crawling under and tracing wiring, it turned out that there was a GFCI in the system - IN THE ISLAND IN THE KITCHEN! Everywhere you can find a visible GFCI, reset it. Behind sofa, in a cabinet, etc. see if you get lucky.
  22. No, just too dim. If you pop it off the back part, you can see 2 small black circles on the board. These are the lights, twist them with a finger & they pop right out. Tks again, I may take you up on it anyway,.How much will cover your trouble to zip 21220? (Dometic take note: The village idiot could do this, and you want me to buy a whole NEW one?
  23. Unit works fine, except my old eyes can't read the LCD's with the crummy little bulbs in it. They easily twist out from the back, but I want to buy same size LED's for the spots. Tks for the offer...
  24. Oh, there's plenty on line & I'll check my local store. But the question is, are they T4 or T5 ? The biggest part of the base is 3/8", looks like 10mm so T4.
