Thanks for the links.

That looks like a bunch of fun. I like boats and have always been interested in steam power.

We paddled our canoe around those reeds and lilies in Klamath Lake in 1992.

Maybe I can arrange to be in Anacortes next summer to see the boats. Thats my home territory.

CAUTION!!!

It is not wise to use the word "Gadget" in the presence of ones spouse....

..... with great respect to the domestic relationship - there is simply is no understanding of the need for any "gadget" .....

..... however .....

..... a "Tool" is a much different story ......

...... the need for a "tool" cannot be disputed - there can be many tools in the RV "tool kit" - but there should be no "gadgets" .....

...... in this case the Infra-Red Scanning Tool should be described as a critically important "Multi-Purpose Temperature Evaluating Device" ......

...... on that is obviously designed to ensure the safe operation of a number of vitally necessary RVing functions ......

...... of course there is a wide range ......

......from wheel bearing temperatures to ensuring your morning coffee will not scald your lips ......

..... please remember ...... solidarity is important if we are to achieve domestic tranquility ...... there no gadgets ...... there are only tools .....

..... and each tool makes it own essential contribution to every successful RV outing .....


Thanks,



Jay

On our Balloon Fiesta trip two years ago, our truck started flashing lights about the transmission being overtemp. Checking the fluid (no burnt smell and good color), operation was good. The final piece of mind was using my infrared thermometer to shoot the temp (under 140 degrees). Turned out to be a bad sensor.

Very nice to have.

Too hot = too bad

Barbie will be in England next July, so we won't get the boat up there for that meet - but we do plan on being there in the Tin Pickle.

Might save a lot of wasted time looking!

Maybe for a young fellow. However as I aged, I discovered that hotness is not the best search criteria.

A very expensive lesson it was, but thats another story.

Thanks in advance,

P.S. I have already recognized the need to know the temperature of the white area in the middle of Daisy(my avatar)'s belly.
My thermometer arrived a couple of days ago. How did I live without one all this time?

The white spot on Daisy's Belly is 87.5 degrees.

After I posted above, I read the CT flier and there it was on sale. I just had to have one as, with my years, I think my judgement may be in question!
Now everyone-er-thing will be put through the "HOT" test.
I even used it on my bum knee to show higher temp. from inflamation.

CT=Canadian Tire? If so, what do they call it? I don't see it in their online flyer.
