re: Changing A/C Unit on Camper - bapple
A friend of mine had put a mini split on his old RV and he said it made the overhead unit its bitch. Just something to consider... [img]http://www.hphvac.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/Ductless-Mini-Split-Air-Conditioner-2.jpg[/img]...

[quote]My Dad had a '99 and had 140K on it, no major problems/repairs in 17 years[/quote] My dad had an '01 Avalanche, one of the first in the entire state, and drove it for 150k miles. Didn't have a single issue with it the entire time he drove it, even still had the factory brake pads on it. He...

re: Car/truck exterior care question - bapple
Clay bars are designed to grab the leftover particulates from the painted surface that regular washing does not remove. All that's needed is a slick liquid to make the clay glide otherwise it tends to stick. You just slide the clay across each panel until it starts feeling smooth and then fold it ov...

[quote]Apparently brake fluid leaked into the booster, ate through the diaphragm, and was getting sucked into the engine via the vacuum. I was burning brake fluid in the engine. [/quote] I did have to replace my brake booster and a friend of mine did too. And replacing a brake booster filled...

[quote]Sounds to me almost like it shifting in and out of eco on the cams to me. [/quote] The second generation of the DOD system on the new trucks does appear to be better. You really can't tell when it's going into V4 mode whereas with my Yukon it would annoy the piss out of me until I had it t...

re: IWB holster recommendations for Glock 43 - bapple
[quote]Is that model holster called the "professional"?[/quote] And to the other dude who asked, yes I'm pretty sure that's the model. It's the default model without any specific differences. [quote] I hadn't considered one with a back like that. [/quote] I like it so much more than having ...

re: IWB holster recommendations for Glock 43 - bapple
I'm a big fan of the N82 Tactical one I got for my Kahr CM9. Suede on the inside part and very comfortable. [img]http://truthaboutguns-zippykid.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/Kahr-CW9-in-a-N82-Tactical-Professional-IWB-holster-courtesy-Dan-Zimmerman.jpg[/img]...

re: Tell me about Chevy Silverados... - bapple
The new LT motors are a bit more complex than the older LS motors but are much quieter with the direct injection. I like the compactness and ease of servicing a pushrod V8 but I get that most people don't service their own vehicles like I do. Love my 2010 Yukon Denali with the 6.2 but it's the ol...

re: Range day with some FN toys - bapple
[quote]Just returned from the range and must say the 5.7 impressed me. Its very accurate and followup shots were quick to target.[/quote] I feel like the 5.7 handgun is a bit of a gimmick since so much energy is wasted with the short barrel. The PS90 with a longer barrel I feel would make it more...

re: Building a 10mm single rifle - bapple
[quote]I wouldn't put an extractor on it. Too complicated when I could just add a small notch and pull the spent cartridges out by fingernail. [/quote] Know that the 10mm Auto is a rimless design so it wouldn't be as easy as pulling a spent shotgun shell or 22 out of the chamber....

Would love if FN made a tactical version for their striker guns like the FNS9 or the FN 509. I want to throw another RMR on one of my guns! Sweet collection!...

re: Any put BFGoodrich A/T KO2's on their truck? - bapple
Have them on my 2010 Yukon Denali for the added protection from flats after dealing with that crap for too long. These things have multi-ply sidewalls and tread and have a very low chance of ever getting a flat compared to what I had before. Agreeing with most others here: 1. Surprised how qui...
