The fact that you appear to actually believe the crap you write would be
funny if it wasn't so pitiful.
You are arguing against a point that I never made. "They void the
warranties because it's a well known problem."
Show me one post where I brought up the warranty issue. If you want to play
games with wording around "one" and "them", fine, because that is the one
and only point I was making. However, bringing up an issue that I never
even mentioned appears to be nothing more than a way to avoid the actual
point be argued. I'll try one more time to see if you can actually stay on
point. It's actually not much more than a Yes or No question:
In one thread, did you say ""We've had _one_. That was enough to cure me of
that particular laziness" and then in another thread say "I've been burned
by _them_ killing the battery."
Yes or no?
Your honor, will you please instruct this idiot of a witness to answer the
question? His continual refusal to answer a simple Yes or No question is
proof that he just can't admit when he's wrong.
Oh well, it's not like he's hiding anything. His inability to be honest
about his shortcomings is obvious to everyone present.
I rest my case...but I'm sure he's not quite done yet.
At least you delayed the freezing.
I have one water tap that when left dripping, closes, and another that
opens more. Aren't there some magic words to make them stay where they
are? (only one is used for avoiding a frozen pipe, but it's still
The lowest it has gotten here is 8+ F. Arkansas should be a lot
warmer than that. I wonder what went wrong?
But if you're in Minnesota and have full strength anti-freeze (that is,
50/50) I heard on the news it will freeze at the temps they have there.
(Wind chill has no effect unless your car sweats or you're pouring water
on it that evaporates. If it freezes instead, I think the ice is a

Sure takes a lot of firewood when it's only 3* outside . But we survived
last night , even though the water supply is frozen . I sure am glad I have
an onboard fresh water tank and a pump !
This is unusual cold for this area , hasn't been this cold since I think
they said 1996 . I hope it's at least another 18 years before it happens
There is a Snag on Adventure riders motorcycle site. Is that you?? WW
North central Arkansas . Stone County about 10 miles south of Mountain View
, to be more exact . We're building a house in a clearing in the woods .
Currently the "house" is connected by a hallway to the 25' camping trailer
we've been living in . And the camper isn't well insulated , as it was never
really intended for winter use .
It has warmed up here...21F....so we went for a ride, ran some errands,
came home along a lake near home in time to see three bald eagles out on
the ice looking for lunch. One adult and two juveniles. This is
north-central Indiana. It's snowing again, adding to about 17" from two
No snow here , just a layer of ice over everything . Roads are *extremely*
slippery - my wife who is a very good slick road driver spun out last night
on her way home from work , ended up with her SUV on it's side in the ditch
. Whole right side is damaged , and right now it's sitting along side the
road in a yard right where she went off waiting for any fliuds to drain back
down where they belong . Wouldn't do to bend a rod of something due to
hydraulic lock in a cylinder .
Good, she is not hurt, I sure hope.
Even we Canucks fear the black ice most. All my family vehicles have
good set of winter tires and AWD power train. Wife's can lock
into real 4WD. So far no problems. Today 2 deg. Celsius, tomorrow
will be around 7 deg. C. Melting like crazy. Chinook condition.
For sure, that black ice (clear ice for
netpicks) is really dangerous. Can catch
folks by surprise, and make for trouble.
The guy across the street just got home.
Took a crew along the Thruway, today, and
saw three big rigs off the road. Even
professional drivers have wrecks.

I remember back in abot '71 when they outlawed studs here in
Ontario. I had studs on the Valiant - could go anywhere. Then I got
the '69 Dart - and non-studded snows. Driving down Sawmill Road
between Conestogo and Bloomingdale, down along the river, and I
thought I must have a flat tire - the car was going all squirrelly. I
was driving slowly - not in any hurry (for once) to get anywhere. I
got out of the car to check the tires and promptly ended up flat on my
ass on the road. It was so slippery I could not stand up. I got back
into the car, managed to get rolling, and headed for higher ground
where the mist coming off the river didn't freeze on the road.
Her car is a Mazda Tribute , same thing as a Ford Escape . And she had it
locked in 4WD when this happened . Thing is that AWD/4WD may help the GO ,
but it don't do squat for the SLOW . The only thing that would've helped in
this situation is chains or studded tires . I may have to invest in another
set of rims , with studded snow tires for winter use .
She's OK , one bruise from the seat belt and a couple of bruises from
where she slipped and fell down . It was so slick last night and this
morning that if there was the slightest slope you slid downhill . This one
was so bad because it was freezing rain falling on frozen ground . It makes
me wonder , how can it be raining when the air temp is like 29* ? Why isn't
it SNOW by the time it hits ?
