  1. New Spell Checker

    Funny thing about it is Carl understood every connotation.
  2. We found one and as soon as the deal is finalized I'll tell what it is.
  3. Tire Air Pumps

    Dummy wants to know why drive has 105 psi and tag 95 psi. Don't tell me you ran out of air either.
  4. Tire Air Pumps

    If I had baloon ties on it I would still own it. Insurance finally paid off. Why is there so much less air in the tag tires.
  5. ha ha! spare coach is gone. Insurance company finally paid us and the finance company so we are free and clear right now. Hey Fagnam, thanks for the update and happy to hear it is fixed.
  6. If you have a spare of anything you will never have another problem with that item. (Remember Murphy's Law?)
  7. Tire Air Pumps

    I never had a problem with my on-board compressor filling the tires to 110 psi, never. Yes, I have done it several times.
  8. Tire Minder TPMS

    I don't worry about what the TPMS says I inflate accordingly and use a calibrated gauge. Then I look at the TPMS and it will always read differently. From that point on it is nothing more than a reference and if something does go wrong with a tire it will notify me according to the values I set. Any gauge is really nothing more than a reference point, even the calibrated ones but they are real close to being correct. Reference point is all I need. If I set a tire to 110 psi and the gauge reads 108 psi then when the gauge reads 108 psi i know there is 110 psi in the tire. + or - 10% from either value is only about 1 psi difference. Just a reference point. It's still frustrating that the TPM can't be more accurate.
  9. It's the thought that counts, right?
  10. November the 10th, Seventeen Hundred and Seventy Five the United States Marine Corps was established. So, on November 10th you can send me something for my birthday, even though I'm only a portion of that age
  11. Punxsy, November 10th is a day of reverence - don't act up. Behave and pay your respects.
  12. Are You A Veteran?

    Happy BD Navy Mates. USMC was 1 year later. Must be it didn't take as much time to train us.
  13. Convection/Microwave Ovens

    If it didn't come with a turn table it will still work as it is designed that way. Many of the older models were higher heating output and did not require a turntable to evenly distribute the heat. it is my understanding that a "Half Time" oven cooks using both the microwave and convection therefore cutting the time in half for cooking. A microwave/convection oven will use only one at a time. Using microwave the magnetron is engaged (think radar) and in the old days they used a TWT (Traveling Wave Tube). The first units that could be called "Radar Range" the counter top "Radar Range" was first introduced by Amana. The microwave oven is dated back to the mid 1940's. The convection oven has been around for a long time. It is just an oven with a heating element that forces air around the food with a fan. I'm sure you have been in stores where they have a "Table Top" oven. It has a heating element top with a fan on it pointing into typically a glass container. Food is place on racks in the container, the top is placed on and snapped down and when power is applied the heating element comes on and a fan forces the air evenly around the food. I purchased one of those in 1986 or abouts and used it at work. Put Chicken. steak, vegetables on the rack all at the same time, turn it on and come back 40-45 minutes later and everything was ready for a table of 4. Metal utensils can be used in a convection oven but not in a microwave oven. Our first "Radar Range was in 1980 and was an Amana.
  14. Part Timer Mail Question

    We used USPS a couple times. What they did was pack up the mail in one of their boxes and mail it to the address we gave them. They would send it out on a Wednesday and we always received it on the following Friday. When we left that address and headed home we just put a hold on the mail, picked it up when we got home and started service again. Never had a problem but most likely that can be different from geographic post office to post office.
