Aircraft Component Repair Frequently Asked Questions
What does it cost to live in a RV or Motor home?
What are the costs to live in a 2 bedroom Motor home/RV ? If it is parked at my mother house (she has 2 acres property) and I only pay my utiltys …how much does that cost? Electric? Heat? A/C? Monthly??
Can I hook up cable and internet? Is this possible ….no gas worries cause it will stay where it is and not move..
Rent is so expensive and cant get a home loan…so just trying to think of ways to live cheaper and be able to save money. Currently I am paying 1550.00 a month for a 2 bed rental…its impossible to save a dime. I cant afford it anymore…IS a rv a good idea?
You will have to hook into your mothers utilities. You can have separate phone and or cable service that includes DSL. I would pay her rent for the space and for utilities. The extra power should not be more than $100 a month on her bill. Keep in mind that most RVs have gas stoves, water heaters and heat. They have portable propane tanks that you will have to go and get refilled or you can have the gas company to set up an outside natural gas tank that will last months instead of weeks.
My advice is to go to a used RV dealer and tell the salesman what you plan to do and he can give you more advice.
Also, buy a trailer, not a motor home. The trailer will have more room for its length, be cheaper to buy and you will not have near as many mechanical issues when you finally sell it one day. It is not good to let a motorized vehicle to sit for months and years.
Edit: Good point Doug. I forgot about sewage. You would have to tap into your mothers septic tank or city sewage line.
are there any any companies that clean oil off of cement garage floors?
and what is their #
Basically, in out rental house, it looks like the guy dumped a bucket of motor oil on the garage floor and then used the oil to paint a section of the floor. And his car dripped everywhere on the other half of the garage. So now the while garage has drips of oil everywhere and looks kind of like the black parts of this freeway. And to make matters worse, it is totally soaked in to the cement.
Yes — google cement cleaning company and your locations. There are pages of them without listing a location: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&rlz=1T4RNWE_en___US238&sa=X&oi=spell&resnum=0&ct=result&cd=1&q=cement+cleaning+company&spell=1.
For instance, this one is a national chain: http://www.concretewashguys.com/
Buying a part for a Payne furnace – want to get the right one, and install on our own?
The furnace at our rental house is making squealing noises when it starts up. Tenants have to tap what I believe is the inducer motor to get it to spin sometimes.
First, there are only 2 motors on the furnace – the smaller inducer fan assembly and the large blower. correct?
Second, the small round wheel that is roughly 4 inches in diameter that starts spinning before the flame kicks on is the inducer motor. correct?
I searched online for a replacement motor and found a few results. I am unsure about ordering it just yet because it is a lot of money to waste on getting the wrong part.
The results I am finding list all the model numbers that the part is compatible with, and I am finding my model number in the list. Here is where I get doubty:
Our model number says pg8uaa036065adja series D
The serial number says 3801a60089
The parts for sale online list the pg8uaa036065adja number identically, but that is followed by a 0058. Would this last 4 digits be a mismatch to part of our serial number perhaps?
Here is the page I intend to order from: http://www.myhvacparts.com/Catalogue/Inducers/Carrier%20Inducer%20Kit.htm
I have called several local HVAC companies and they have all been quite rude and unhelpful. Being that this is a rental house, a service call would be inconvenient for all parties involved, and frankly we don’t want to spend the cash if we can avoid it.
My husband is a mechanic and is confident that if he has the correct part, he can replace it himself.
I have read (and warned him) that he would need to be very careful not to bend the fan and throw it off balance when he installs it.
So…. can you confirm or deny that the part I found online would be the proper replacement for our inducer motor, and also possibly give any tips from experience on replacing this part?
I sure would appreciate any info.
Wow, polar bear, you have a lot of nerve to be so rude. People act like they have a lot of balls when they are protected by the anonymity of the internet.
The last four digits of the part number: does it match my application or not?
If this attempted repair is a dangerous one then POLITELY suggesting against a DIY repair would suffice.
Yeah, pb. Texas. That explains a lot. So does the fact that all your q’s and a’s are private, you don’t have any other means for Y!A users to communicate with you…
Hollow BLUFF. lol You know as well as I do that nobody is going to hop on a plane to go find some jackass that was rude to them on the internet.
Grayson County, huh? And I am the only amber ??q?? in Cherokee county, Georgia. Or was it Carbon county, Utah? Or Clark County, Nevada? Right. You could say any county or city name you want and we both know I am not coming over there.
Hell. You could put your home address on here and it wouldn’t prove you have balls. You obviously have SOMETHING to prove though because you checked back to find my comments less than an hour later. Why do you need to convince me that you have balls? Why do you care what I think?
ROFL @ you. Get over yourself.
Thank you John. I appreciate the assurance that this part would match. Of course, we would compare it with the original one side by side when it arrives and only install it if it is completely identical.
You are right. I have a list of companies I will not do business with if we do end up needing professional service.
We have a CO and Gas detector that will sound if there is an issue as well.
I read a message on a forum from an HVAC guy that billed $100 for a service call. The customer complained about low air flow and he pulled the cellophane off a filter and handed it to him. I believe it pays to be curious and ambitious. It also pays to be cautious, which is why I am doing research about this before even ordering the part, let alone attempting it.
Theres a good chance that you have a match with the match that you made. You are right, your husband can probably get it done. Too bad the AC companies were so rude. What are the chances that you will be calling them when you really need a repair. I have been an AC tech for years. I have had multiple calls from DIY people who got stuck. I never blame them for trying, and am happy to point out where they went wrong, and explain to them how things work. I’m sure mister Polar Bear never does any repairs on his car, since he’s not a certified auto technician and he didnt pay his dues in that field. This is no different.
very early model harley davidson 1 cylinder?
i got this bike. it was my dads. he recently passed away and dont know much about this bike. i have 2 other brothers and we were looking through his stuff at my moms rental house and came across a crate with all the parts to a 1 cylinder harley davidson. with alittle more digging around we found the frame. for as long as my brothers and i have been alive, we never knew this bike excited. i have been searching the internet with no such luck to identify it. some sites say that the 1st 2 numbers are the model year and some say different. so im here, again. the 1st 2 numbers are *67. when looking online, the ones that look like this bike are the 1st harleys ever made, beside the long square gas tanks. this tank is more circled. it could be a different tank. the frame is stamped as well as the motor. same numbers. the frame is covered in rust with a few areas where you can see that it used to be red. all the motor parts look brand new. i hope som1 out there can help me with this issue. i hope i gave enough info for som1 to help idenify. if not, ask and i will add more info…thanks
If the cylinder is horizontal (sticking forward), it’s a Sprint, an Italian imported by Harley, and sold under their name.
Aermacchi (in partnership with Harley) built a 250cc 4-stroke.
The Sprint was available in 250cc and later in a 350cc version.
The Sprint model was quite popular from the mid 1960’s until the early 70’s.
Compare yours to a picture of one:
If it’s a vertical cylinder (such as this: http://auto.howstuffworks.com/1927-harley-davidson-ba.htm ), keep searching the web.
Mid 1930′s – 1961
engine number is the VIN and is located on left case. No frame number
First two numbers are the year
Letters (up to four) are the model
last numbers are the production number
1962 – 1969
engine number is the VIN and is located on left case. No frame number
First two numbers are the year.
Letters (up to four) are the model.
Last numbers are the production number.
If production number has four digits, the first number will be even if the year is even, odd if the year is odd.
If production number has five digits, the first two numbers will be even if the year is even, odd if the year is odd.
Finally, you could try this Harley-Davidson VIN Decoder.
Just plug in the VIN number:
Does a clothes washer pump have a freeze plug?
This is an old GE model in a rental house. I put the washer in last winter, and it worked fine. It got well below freezing in the house before it was rented. Now the washer seems to be leaking. I removed the washer and took it to my garage. I removed the back panel and filled it up with a garden hose. I noticed water leaking out from under it. The electric motor is connected to a plastic pump. There are several rubber hoses going to the pump. The water is coming out from a round hole about the size of a BB. Is this where a freeze plug would go?
No freeze plugs,, people are supposed to drain the washer to keep things from breaking in freezing weather,,,, you have a broken pump or water line from the freeze
