Re: Rearview Mirror glue

It's dutch hardstyle, and it's not that loud. :excited: :lol: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kpYn5gWferE Oddly, the glue sorta half-failed. Half the glue is adhered to the button, other half is still stuck to the glass. Split right down the middle. :wtf: https://photos.smugmug.com/Trucks/Ram-2500/i...

Re: o ring for p/s reservoir

yup, or find a local industrial shop that can make an O-ring for you, if they don't have something off the shelf that'll work.

Bearing/motion supply shops can usually do some sealing work as well. I've got a shop nearby that specializes in seals/packing/O-rings.

Do they make any sort of "seal savers" for trucks, like they do for dirtmobiles?

Re: Towing Capacity

Yes, it'll do it.

Take it slow and watch temps on the long uphill pulls, but it'll get the job done.
I go over the continental divide just about every weekend all winter long.

Do the dirt bikes have the same problems the LC4’s had with the crappy Turkish cam bearings?? Crank bearing. Replaced the original roller bearings with heavy-duty ball bearings at ~6k miles.

Re: Easy Ideas for Hot Food on the Trail

Anything switch-mode (most power supplies) can take modified sine just fine. Rectified, plenty of input capacitance to clean things up, then it goes through the switcher with pretty fast feedback loop (usually a few hundred khz) where it goes through more filtering to provide DC to the load.
