    That camper episode...I kept waiting for the bumper to rip off and the truck/camper jackknifing going backwards. He thinks the stabilizer jacks are actually jacks :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO: The whole frame brace deal was most likely why that one slide wouldn't go out. I think he tweaked the frame...

    Craig's List

    I recently sold an older Samsung phone at a fraction of what it was new. I had at least two potential buyers want ME to do the research on whether it would work on their phone plan. I cleary stated I used it on Cricket and would likely work on ATT since it was an ATT "branded" phone. One lady i...

    Hydraulic hose quality

    First hose that busted on me after buying my Case backhoe was made by a local shop and they used Gates hose which I thought good brand huh? It lasted maybe two year in the sunlight.

    A kid gets terminated at work...

    One old timer I worked with in the 90's had all these old country sayings. One was "don't take everybody to be your friend." Rewind to maybe '79 and working as a pizza delivery while in HS. When slow I would help in the kitchen. I hadn't learned that not everyone is your friend. Boss lady comes...

    Electrical/Battery issue

    I had a weird problem and just swapped the battery with a spare I had. Maybe swap it with your daily driver if the battery fits.

    Retirement Planning - Lessons Learned

    read up on J.R. Simplot. there was a rags to riches story. I was on a commercial rafting trip down the Middle Fork of the Salmon and one of the guides pointed out land his family still owned. the only way in is river, horseback or plane since it's surrounded by a wilderness area.

    Earth's Hottest Month

    F150 on Moab Jeep trails?

    A friend did the White Rim trail a few years ago in his Ford Ranger which is mostly stock. it's an overnight camping trip as it's slow going. I did it many years ago on a Suzuki DR650 in one day. worst part I remember is near Murphy Hogback. There was a short spot that had talc dust 8'-12". If...

    Replacing the generator - suggestions?

    I know Long Long Honeymoon (YT RV'ers) have reviewed a Champion Dual fuel. I have roughly the same unit but gasoline only. Limiting factors for you will be needing propane and 240V. I also notice many vendors are back-ordered on units.

    Mixing tans/hydraulic fluids ?

    Maybe a year or so ago I commented to Project Farm that a good review would be various tractor fluids such as Travellers Premium, Hy-Gard, HyTran etc. he thanked me for the suggestion but no such video as of now.

    Post was banned from Face Book

    People don't like change. I always suggest MeWe or pick a site that works for you. If they come over they don't stay long. They get the most attention on FB. At least people are slowly going to alternate video platforms.

    Time for a new portable generator

    I had a Honda EU2000i mainly for camping and to have a little power during outages. I often boondock camp and sometimes I need to run the A/C for a short period to cool the camper off. The Honda wouldn't do it. I almost bought a used Yamaha 3000 off Marketplace but someone beat me to it. So I...

    Torque Multiplier

    I have the Neiko larger unit listed in the first link. It's not rated for impact use and the ratio on it is slightly off per one of the reviews and they are correct. I've used a few times to torque/break loose rod caps in cylinder rebuilds on my backhoe.

    There was an illegal scrapping operation that happened out in Utah near Elberta. I think it is/was the Tintic RR. It was 14 miles of UP track. Also a bunch of containers burglarized in this video of a passing train.

    Going rate for dozer and operator?

    I recall a fella in south central MO advertising on FB Marketplace for maybe $85 an hour. I think he had a minimum of say 4 hours. Some go that route instead of having an extra transport fee. I can rent a JD650 that's about 75 miles away for $515 a day plus whatever it costs to transport it. Or...

    What's your favorite degreaser?

    I once had to replace leading edge protective foil strips on a composite ultralight prop. The manufacturer (IVO Prop) said use MEK to remove the old adhesive residue. That's some stout stuff but worked really well. Speaking of Ivo he has an interesting story. ABOUT – Ivoprop Corp.

    Not the stuff I buy called Brakleen in the red can. It's mostly tetrachloroethylene. I hope I got the name correct. It's non flammable.

    What's your favorite degreaser?

    CRC Brakleen in aerosol cans. Often local Dollar generals have it at a reasonable price. Back when I was working we used CRC Electraclean. Then they would only get the newer version which everyone hated. it left and oily film and didn't work very well.
