You have not lived until you have traveled and you have to force your GPS to stay on this road, but we traveled from Williams KOA thru the town and down a beautiful road and well we ended up on a narrow road. I think it was Perkensville Road. Just stay on it until to go to Jerome. Trust me you have not traveled until you have done this road and you will never want to go off the beaten trail ever again. O and by the way, make sure you are in a car. Nothing else. What a roller coaster you will travel. So nothing can compare to what ever tails you have. We went out west and yes we experienced the back roads of the west. Tales to be told and had.

On the smelly sink letter. We had this problem and thought it was the drain also. I found that the water lines to an unused washer feed prep fed off the sink lines. Since we don’t have a washer the water in those lines got bad and smelled like rotten eggs. I disconnected the lines and that eliminated the problem.

In Chuck’s Editor Corner about Michael today, I can name the arthritis that Michael has. It is called Ankylosing Spondylitis. It is a very painful disease that not only fuses the back, but will affect all of your other joints and organs. It is an auto immune disease in which your immune system will attack your good cells. By the time Michael is fully fused his head more than likely be fused in a downward position. His chin will be or close to resting on his chest.

I just wanted to share my knowledge of this form of arthritis to hopefully bring a little more awareness of this disease. I can fully understand and appreciate Michael just sitting on the rock and drinking it all in.

Such a sad story with one poor soul heading towards the unknown and another good man seeing such a time he decided he could be a friend and get involved. You are a good person Chuck by thinking of Michael and his need for some friendship.
It makes us something different in the animal kingdom as humans. You thought of Michael and you gave him the gift of friendship for perhaps that last part of a normal life he would know.
This is a perfect story to share as we enter this holiday season and I’m sure there are many Michaels out there who could be in need of a bit of friendship. Just a cup of coffee or tea, a wave, a hello and even to share a simple meal could mean so much for some other Michael. Wouldn’t that be a fantastic thing to do for someone? Just remember don’t let your heart get the best of you to where you place yourself in an unfriendly unsafe moment. Be friendly but also watch your back.
Thanks for sharing your story Chuck, as it puts a bit of the Christmas story out there for us who may have forgotten what it’s all about! Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Can someone tell me the difference between a 12 volt deep cycle battery and a 24 volt deep cycle battery. I was sold a 24 volt deep cycle battery for my camper instead of a 12 volt deep cycle battery.

12 volt batteries are made for 12 volt systems. 24 volt batteries are made for 24 volt systems. You can’t use a 24 volt battery in a 12 volt system. I have a solar generator and the batteries are wired for a 24 volt system. 24 volt systems can use smaller diameter wires. I had a belarus tractor that was 24 volt and I think a lot of the military vehicles are 24 volt.

I’m pretty sure that you won’t find a 24v battery anywhere in North America. You can get 24v by connecting in series, 4 x 6v, or 3 x 8 v, or 2 x 12 volt batteries. Some larger vehicles have 24v starters, so use 2 x 12 v in series, but the rest of the vehicle, lights, fans etc are 12 volt, so they use switches/relays to get the proper voltage to the right place.
Batteries are generally 2volts per cell, so if you have 3 caps it’s 6 volt, 6 filler caps it’s 12 volt.
I think someone is pulling your or possibly my leg.
In any case don’t use 24 volts in your RV, it won’t wreck everything right away, but it will cause a lot of damage.

Good chance it was a Group 24 battery, still a 12V deep cycle style.
