Re: This is why I come here!

Bob, the thread is long in the tooth, Mike's post was made last June, Bruce just resurected it. I would bet Gathering Cinco is in June as well this year. I MIGHT have my panel back together by then. :bang: Mike - Correct, this thread referred to last years RV Fly-in. I don't have an exact date for ...

Re: OSHKosh Beer Tasting

What relatively crowd pleasing style should I look at, or what brew should I try to clone? My vote is IPA... The crowd seemed to suck those up first. Of course CJ would say that. Do you even remember that last IPA you had a Mitchapalooza? :lol: :lol: :lol: My vote is for a strong Belgian style Sais...

Re: OSHKosh Beer Tasting

CJ,

The Sunday beer tasting is definitely happening again this year on Sunday. It was too much of a success to be one and done!

Thanks for your help volunteering last year. It was all the volunteers that made it happen. I just had the silly idea RV'ers might like craft beer :bow:

Re: Data Plate

Keep it simple - Builder Name, Model and Serial Number.

My Model is a "Bullock Special" and Serial number of 001. The Tax Man knows what an RV is worth...but not a Bullock Special!

This is the last pic I have of Wyatt but definitely not my last encounter with the best dog ever. Superb dog, mediocre owner!

Landing on ICE! (Alton Bay - 1B8)

I was browsing the interwebs last night (Friday) and noticed some of the RivetBangers and New England Flash Mob members were heading up to Alton Bay, NH to land on their recently opened Ice Runway - it's the only FAA approved ice runway in the US. Alton Bay does a great job updating everyone of it's...

Re: Wiring Harness

Hi Joe, I rolled my own wiring harness. I didn't find it all that difficult. The hardest thing for me was putting together the wiring diagram for how the center stack was connected (Audio Panel, Garmin 430, 2nd comm + transponder). Once I had the diagram made, it took me about 4-6 hours to get it al...

CJ,

Out of curiosity, what's wrong with the screw-type lugs compared to the crimp lugs?

Re: Ground cable to replace

Hi Vlad, I used Welding Wire, which is composed of a number of very fine copper wires and has a lot more flex than the Tefzel wire you use, on top of better conductivity. I think the stiffness of the wire is a large contributor to your issue. PM me your address and I'll send you a couple of feet of ...
