RE: Removing caulk from rubber roof

You can use a heat gun and plastic scraper to remove the old caulk. There is also a Caulk Remover available. I just remove the loose caulk. Clean the remaining caulk and apply new over it. Eternabond will stick to the old caulk. Just clean the area well before applying.

RE: Things you find on computer

Thanks for posting. They should have mated the Jeep to the red/silver TT. That would be a really cool RV.

Why would a pic of gbop scare us? I wish I looked that good!

RE: Snow Roof coating on EPDM roof

Thanks for the info. I restored the roof on our 96 Southwind about a year ago with Heng's Rubber Roof Coating. It as easy to apply and no primer was needed. It has held up to the sun, rain, wind, snow and ice. Obviously Pennsylvania doesn't get the sun damage like in Texas. Give us an update in about a year and let us know how it held up. Our Southwind is 37' but the actual roof is 30'. I used 2 1/2 gallons to apply two coats.

RE: Soda Crate Moral Dilemma (& Informal Survey)

It depends on the law in your area. In Pennsylvania it's Theft. § 3924. Theft of property lost, mislaid, or delivered by mistake. A person who comes into control of property of another that he knows to have been lost, mislaid, or delivered under a mistake as to the nature or amount of the property or the identity of the recipient is guilty of theft if, with intent to deprive the owner thereof, he fails to take reasonable measures to restore the property to a person entitled to have it. § 3925. Receiving stolen property. (a) Offense defined.--A person is guilty of theft if he intentionally receives, retains, or disposes of movable property of another knowing that it has been stolen, or believing that it has probably been stolen, unless the property is received, retained, or disposed with intent to restore it to the owner. § 6712. Use of carts, cases, trays, baskets, boxes and other containers. (a) General rule.--A person owning shopping carts, laundry carts or containers may adopt and use a name or mark on the carts or containers and may register the same pursuant to 54 Pa.C.S. Ch. 15 (relating to reusable marked articles and receptacles). (b) Prohibited uses of containers.--A person may not do any of the following: (1) Use for any purpose, when not on the premises of the owner or an adjacent parking area, a container of another which is identified with or by any name or mark unless the use is authorized by the owner. (2) Sell, or offer for sale, a container of another which is identified with or by a name or mark unless the sale is authorized by the owner. (3) Deface, obliterate, destroy, cover up or otherwise remove or conceal a name or mark on a container of another without the written consent of the owner. (c) Presumption of possession.--Any person who is in possession of any shopping cart, laundry cart or container which has a name or mark and is not on the premises of the owner or an adjacent parking area shall be presumed to be in possession of stolen property. The Finders-Keepers defense probably won't hold up in court. There a lot of people sitting in jail because they 'Found' something. That said, your chances of legal problems because of an old soda case are probably slim to none. So, it's not only a Moral Dilemma, it's also a Legal Dilemma. ;)

RE: Selling a Travel Trailer

do not buy new tires. The new owner may have a preference or may not want Chinese tires X2. I think that goes for any type RV. I would rather buy the tires of my choice, then I will know the condition and that they were not abused or run with low pressure.

RE: //www.boondockerswelcome.com

What makes you nervous? It's like any place, RVing or not. If it doesn't feel right, move on.

RE: Crazy driving

Some people are ignorant, some just don't care, some well I don't know. We need to be a little more conscious of what we are doing and the risks and danger we are creating when we are pulling. Again, it's not a race. Rant over. Dan Wait until the high strung, Type A RVers post and tell you you're obstructing traffic by only towing at 68 mph. Then they'll brag about towing at 85+ and feel that is perfectly safe. Unfortunately, it is a race to some :W

RE: Recoating Rubber roof

I used Heng's Rubber Roof Coating. No primer needed. It goes on easy and does a nice job. Since you spent the money for the Dicor, follow the directions and do it right.

RE: Total Eclipse of the Sun will jam CG's!

I assumed everything was booked up by now. I wanted to go but, school starts August 23rd. It would be too much of a rush to get the kids back in time. :( There should be another one in a hundred or so years. I'll wait for the next one. :)

RE: I81

I would take I-81 to Scranton PA and then take I-84 east to avoid NYC. Unless you are planning on visiting the city? This, except I would avoid the stretch of I-81 from Harrisburg to Scranton due to construction and road conditions. The last time I did this stretch it was pretty rough. Maybe a PA member can update this info. An alternative is to take I-78 out of Harrisburg to PA33 or PA611 to I-80 to US209 up the Delaware Water Gap and hook up to I-84 at the PA/NY border. This is a scenic route and has the added advantage of missing the bridge construction zones on I-84 in PA. It's Pennsylvania. ALWAYS expect road construction/repair. You are seldom disappointed. Check 511PA for traffic and construction information.

RE: I81

Yes, it's probably the best choice. I would take I-81 to Scranton PA and then take I-84 east to avoid NYC. Unless you are planning on visiting the city? That's the way we travel to Bangor ME.

RE: Vista

I have an old Dell laptop with Vista. Seldom use it but what can I do to install a newer operating system? I suspect buying an upgrade but the Dell is so old, slow and would like to spend a lot of money. Why do you want to spend a lot of money if you seldom use a computer? If you really do want to spend a lot of money, buy whatever you like. Call Dell, they will sell you a lot of upgrades. :)

RE: Toad or No Toad

I use the ROCKY for fishing, grocery runs, and running around the National Parks for sightseeing. I would hate to be without it. Am I the only one that does not know what a rocky is? Gonzo42 is probably talking about the Daihatsu Rocky, a small SUV type vehicle made in the 90's.

RE: Park to reverse hard to move lever

Does it happen when you are parked on a grade or the front tire is against the curb? Try setting the parking brake before you shift to park.

RE: Rubber roof repair

Use Eternabond for the repair. Then use the E/bond on the seams snd edges. Clean well before applying and use a roller. It will be worth the time and money.

RE: Leisure freedom 1997

How long did you have the refrigerator running? The 21 year old refrigerator in our 96 Southwind takes about 1 1/2 days to get the refrigerator temp down. The freezer works great and quickly. Did you set it to a lower temperature? I can't help you with the earplug question.

RE: so TT is back to pre dog condition

Maybe if you feed your dogs more they won't eat your trailer. :B
