RE: Leaving unit plugged in 24/7

Our 96 Southwind is plugged in 24/7 when not being used. I just check the batteries every month or so.

RE: Restoring EPDM roof for first time

Welcome to the forum. Last summer I restored the roof on our 96 Southwind. I used Heng's Rubber Roof Coating, it required no primer. Tide powdered detergent was recommended to clean the roof. Dawn liquid will make peel. Clean the area well with mineral spirits before applying the Eternabond. I used a metal roller to press the E/bond. Some use a wood roller, I think a metal roller does a better job, I tried both. Along the edge of the roof I used 2" Eternabond, about 1/2 inch on the rain gutter. I would have used 4" but because of the curve on the roof I was concerned it would not lay smoothly. The Eternabond is really sticky. The 2" did a great job. I used a 4" roller to apply the coating. I put on a very light first coat and left it dry overnight. The second coat went on nicely, basically like paint. So far it looks good and is holding up to the sun, wind, rain and Pennsylvania's freeze/thaw cycles. I'll do any touch ups as needed. I used about 2 1/2 gallons. The actual roof is 30'. Your plan sounds good. Personally, I wouldn't use a pressure washer. But, you know the possible problems so just be careful. My only advice would be, don't get in a hurry. Take your time and double check everything as you do the restoration. Thoroughly roll the Eternabond and it will stick properly. Definitely overlap the Eternabond seams. My only regret is, I didn't do it sooner.

RE: 48 inch wide rolls of Eternabond tape?

I purchased a roll that was something like 48" wide, but it was only 4" long. (Old joke, sorry) Kind of like aircraft pilots landing on short but, really wide runways? :B

RE: 48 inch wide rolls of Eternabond tape?

48" by 50' Eternabond is definitely not a one man job. :) The 4" stuff can be tricky.

RE: The dreaded potty burp, can't eliminate it

You said the vent is clear but, did the pipe slide down into the tank?

RE: On our way outwest this summer...

I can't help you with Copper Harbor. But, when traveling, I like to use Roadside America. Sometimes you can find interesting stops along your route. Enjoy your trip.

RE: An older class A for a single traveler

Our 96 Southwind has 4 speeds. (ovedrive). I don't know when the chassis manufacturers went from 3 speed to 4 speed. Personally, I don't think it would be worth the price to change the transmission, unless the RV has a bad transmission. You're definitely not going to get good MPH cruising at 70. I think you will find most agree around 58-62 MPH is the most economical speed for motor homes. I'm guessing an older 3 speed Class A traveling at 70 MPH will get about 5 MPG, or less. If you're looking for better MPG, spend the money and get a Class B. Keep us updated on what you decide.

RE: My Laptop Survived Gravity

As we know, ALL computers will survive Gravity and a fall. It's the sudden stop at the bottom that causes the problems. :B

RE: small roof leak fix?

Eternabond! X2. Eternabond, if applied correctly, is usually a one time repair.

RE: 7.3 no start

I have no idea but, please keep us updated if he gets it started. With that many miles he's probably familiar with its quirks.

RE: Flat tow newbie question

I would check in the owners manual before you flat tow it. X2. Not all manual transmissions can be flat towed.

RE: Its been started...

not using rv type junk such as dicor If you're not using Dicor because it's junk, definitely don't seal your roof with Eternabond. It's pure garbage. :B Keep us updated on your project and post some pics. And, watch your weight as you add site built house components. It sounds like a cool project.

RE: Around the Campfire - litterally!

cool idea, but not for me Mike I agree. To me, it seems like more work setting this up than it is throwing a log on the fire. But, it is interesting and ingenious.

RE: 2 cycle generators

If you don't want to spend the money for a Honda or Yamaha, consider the Champion 2000i.
