    If the gas door is open then the slider will not open! Already tried . 
    As a side note the gas door closes between 55 and 60 MPH .

    I have changed a lot of trans filters.  Most had only small amounts of debris. The real benefit
    Is the changing the heat stressed fluid.

    I work at a drinking water treatment plant. The only people who are getting to stay home during the "shelter in place" for our county is the management staff. All the operators are still working but social distancing means all overlap between shifts have been cut out so you have to do all the work alone. Normal for me since I work the midnight shift, but the day and evening shifts are used to working together on multi-person jobs during the afternoon overlap. Overall, a few less hours per week but much busier.

    G B L got a reaction from jrm223 in How the heck do you jack one of these things up?   
    The clamping load for a grade 5 bolt is 9046 lbs per bolt and a grade 8 bolt is 12771 lbs . If something fails on the hitch when you use it for a jack point it won't be the bolts.

    Where I live, we have been staying home since Monday.  Mayor's orders.  Today is Sunday. Anyone else sitting at home?
     
    Boredom has set in. I'm now thinking of performing unneeded service on the cars.  Oil change, spark plugs.......For no reason.
     
    Then there is no eating out. I have had to make my own food.  Today's meal was born out of cabin fever. 
     
    I like steak and eggs. 
     
    I like tomato beef.

    If you mount a GPS in the right place the speedo problem will be eliminated and as an added bonus the tire size will no longer be an issue.

    @Fifty 150 Let's see.  If you are sitting in your vehicle with the air on, the multi-speaker stereo blasting, driving an automatic, on cruise control,with the LCDs playing a movie etc., are you really driving?  Or just another guy taking refuge from the wife.
     
     Sorry but I am 74 years old and can no longer do tent camping.  What is the more likely scenario is I'm sitting around a campfire in a forested area watching the moon and the stars while enjoying a cold brew after I grilled a great steak over the campfire.  Then when I can't stay awake anymore from all the fresh air, I crawl into my bed and watch the 10 PM news and fall asleep only to be wakened 6 hours later by the chirping birds.  Can anyone else vision that?

    Brings to mind the question - anyone retrofit a cargo  van with the AC duct work from a passenger type? Doesn't seem like it'd be all that difficult. That said, I'm surprised the stock AC does as well as it does, with the help of a MaxxFan mounted towards the back of the roof.
     
    My kind of camping, eh. I set up in a "primitive" section and have an inverter for some low watt AC stuff I can run thru an inverter. Van is small enough none of the tent types have ever complained ... at least till I open up my tiny little 4x8 trailer anyway ... it's WAY bigger on the inside! <G>
     

     
    PS - lost a leg and couldn't drive the Ranger stick shift anymore, which is why I went with the TC in the first place. I've already go a convertible bed and kitchen set up in the TC (I posted up a pic of that "in progress" earlier in the thread), but have been mulling over converting the back bedroom of the tent trailer into a foyer and attaching the thing to the side door. Stay tuned!
