RE: fixing small hole in sewer pipe

Another vote for Goop. It works on anything. Mike

RE: Skylight - Smoked color or Clear?

RE: Rust-Oleum Stop Leak

I haven't used it on the MH roof but I did use it extensively to seal between the walls and floor when I did a Travel Trailer Rebuild. By all accounts it works as advertised. That was a great job, and looks like a lot of work. Mike

RE: Fastest route through Seattle??

I can remember one trip from Medford, Oregon to Victoria that it took us almost as long to get from Medford to Seattle as it did to get across Seattle. They have more accidents up there than anyplace that I have ever seen. I was just up there on I-5 a few weeks ago, and we always seem to hit rush hour. Same old thing. I would think you would be in good shape early in the AM. Mike

RE: Using ethanol free gas.

I have been to a couple of small engine repair places over the last year, and the first question they ask is have you used gas/alcohol mixture. If you have they start with the carb. Mike

RE: Ram owners with flip up mirrors

I had a friend that bought a Dodge without the flip mirrors. He had a short TT, and while on a trip over by Lakeview, was stopped by a State Cop coming into town. He was escorted to an auto shop for a fixit ticket to get a pair of towing mirrors to attach to his truck. Mike

RE: Using ethanol free gas.

The other day I just bought some alcohol free gas for the lawn mower, and it cost me $1.80 a gallon more than I could get the mixed garbage for. Can't afford to get that for my car. Mike

RE: Old fashion woman bike for my wife

About 40 years ago I bought my wife a 5 speed bike Schwinn that I thought she could handle, she rode it about 100 yards, and refused to ride it again. Recently, I broke down and got her a Wal-Mart light weight cruiser, and she loves it. Rides it all around when we are camping. Mike

RE: Butyl tape or Putty tape?

I would use the white butyl tape. Mike

RE: Vanity Mirror LED replacement

I have a single one of those over my sink. So I wired mine to a switch that cuts the outside two off when flipped one way, and all three on when turned on with it the other way. Less light, but works OK when boondocking. When hooked into 110 at a park we can use all of them. We also have a double LED light in the ceiling behind that above our head, we use for the sink area. Works for us. You don't need that light for a very long time if everyone is trained well. Mike

RE: Sumo "springs"

so, tell me about your timbren's. Did they smooth out ride in the rear? I have no problem with the ride. I did to start with, but after talking to them, they sent me different cushions to get a little space, then they were great. I carry a tool box that is pretty heavy, so in order to get some space above the timbren's it took a different size. With the trailer on, it supports the weight to prevent sagging, and that is what I wanted. I don't notice it being rough over bumpy roads like some complain of, but it is a truck, I don't expect Cadillac rides. Mike

RE: Sumo "springs"

Appear to function like the Timbren's, I like my Timbren's. Mike

RE: Can't believe folks connecting up sewer without gloves

I used to work on a Jersey Dairy. I didn't use gloves then, and you wouldn't believe what I was exposed to. This is a piece of cake. Just use common sense and good hand washing after. Mike

RE: Need to move spare tire off bumper.

I took a spare tire holder off of a small truck, and mounted it under the fifth wheel. Mike

RE: Weber Q?

Thanks, I will stay as is. Mike

RE: Weber Q?

I hate to jump in with another question, but this seems to be a good place. I bought a used Weber Q 120 I believe. From the web site it is supposed to have a thermometer in the lid, but mine does not. You can buy one, drill the lid and place one in. I worry about that being a place for the lid to break down with the heat. Do you use the thermometer, or just heat it up and go with what you get? Mike

RE: Timben SES

My Timbrins are set with a 1" gap when empty. They came with a rubber disc than can be used to adjust the clearance. They make a huge difference in stability and are easy to install with no modification's. The same for mine. In and done. Very pleased. Mike
