Re: what to do when railing screws are stripped out

Looked in my file for rivet nuts info in vain. Doh! Seem to recall they were about a 1/4 inch grip length, which would work well withy the deck thickness. Got mine from McMaster-Carr--nice people to deal with. The #10 thread size is all you need and works great.

Re: what to do when railing screws are stripped out

I used nylon washers to left the base enough so water could flow beneath it. That keeps corrosion from occurring.

This setup was trouble free for at least 10 years, with every railing joint as tight as it was when I first did them.

Re: Oil leak - good & bad

Also look at that tiny hose that transfers (on some Mopars) pressure from the engine to the oil pressure manifold.

Re: Inverter/charger installation on dual engine

I've learned from painful ($$$) experience that each battery needs its own, dedicated charger.

Re: Exhaust manifold temp

That's WAY too hot! You'll burn up the hoses and etc. if that continues. Mine ran about 130-140 degrees (after a long run).

Not sure how that dual chambered nightmare works, but something isn't pushing anywhere near enough water through.

Re: Waste tank/s setup question

I suggest you also look into the cost of an ElectroSan toilet setup. No pumping out required, just a small bag of ashes to be dropped in the trash.
