RE: Water tank issue

I would also suggest that the tank was not emptied by the previous owner and it was already close to full.

RE: Awning leakage

Take a close look and see if the awning rail is spliced together where it leaks. Mine was and I needed to silicone it to make it stop. Mine even leaked from the run off of condensation from the roof air.

RE: Post that do not stick to subject

So, has anyone ever had someone walk through their campsite while parked at a Walmart after towing with the fridge on gas? Oh, wait. Nevermind. :D

Prayers For Orlando

Thoughts and prayers for all of those touched by the horrific mass shooting in Florida this morning. So very sad.

RE: Amazed and Disgusted

Placing a banjo or accordion on your picnic table will keep people and animals (sometimes one and the same) away.

RE: looking for rv part

Fleet wood ceased travel trailer manufacturing a number of years ago and in my experience, is not supporting its consumers with parts.

RE: Sudden hearing loss... UPDATE (good news)

I lost complete hearing in my left ear very suddenly and unexpectedly a little over 2 weeks ago and it is accompanied by horrendous ringing (tinnitus.) The ENT specialist diagnosed it as a mini-stroke (an extended transient ischemic attack) that occurred in the blood supply to my ear parts. Yes, it is a stroke, but not the kind that results in loss of arms or legs or facial droop normally associated with a stroke; it did affect one side in my ear. We are trying meds and in another 2 weeks I will go for another hearing test. As of now, I cannot hear out of my left ear. I am trying to adapt to this new situation. Anyone experience this specific situation (1 ear only and sudden) and how are you coping? Thanks. This will probably be deleted, but, for the life of me I don't understand why someone who has been diagnosed and is under medical care would come to an RV forum for advice. Seriously, you think that people here can come up with better? Advice? Wait until the people you are paying to advise you. The OP is only asking about how others similarly affected are coping with this problem, not for advice. Unless the OP's "people he is paying" have the same condition, they can't offer the information regarding coping he is asking for. Read and understand what is written here before responding with an inappropriate response.

RE: my new dog

Changed the name of my toilet from John to Jim. No I can tell everyone that I go to the Jim every morning.

RE: Propane Stove

The secret to control on the big burner stoves is to use a variable psi regulator. A straight pressure regulator provides full blown pressure and the stove knobs can't deal with that. A variable psi regulator allows one to reduce gas flow before getting to the burner knobs. Huh? A propane regulator is designed to be set at a pressure of 11" columns. They are not designed to be adjusted other than when first installed. Never heard the term "straight pressure". Now if you are referring to the grill regulators that have a knob on them, this knob regulates the flow of gas AFTER the regulator section. It does not control pressure. Stove "knobs" (valves) are designed to perform with that pre-set 11" columns of pressure. Maybe we are talking about different things. My variable regulator has a dial on it that allows for adjustable gas flow. I'm speaking of large or bbq size tanks, not the small, 1 lbs cans. We ar talking about the same thing. In your first statement you mentioned a variable "psi" regulator. PSI is pressure. Now in your second response you mentioned the correct information that the FLOW is adjusted. My point was that a regulator should never be adjusted form its preset 11" columns of pressure. Flow is a totally different thing. Just wanted to be sure that someone doesn't use a standard regulator and then removes the dust cap to adjust PRESURE.

RE: Popup tent trailer Quicksilver 8.0 add heater and stove?

Can be done but the important thing is the propane supply system. Rubber hose from the regulator output down to black gas pipe underneath. Then soft copper from the black pipe under the floor up to the appliances. The stove installation is pretty simple. I see used pop up appliance on Craigslist often. The heater will be more complicated since it needs to be next to a wall so the outside vent can be installed. The two-burner stove and a Big Buddy is the easiest way to go. The stove can then be used outside.

RE: Air hose quick connect for gas?

Deadly incorrect advice from those stating it is ok to use air fittings. The difference is that air fittings are designed to seal with high pressure and gas quick disconnects with lower pressure.

RE: Dometic power awning slightly off center when closed

Changed title to Dometic so Ed Gee will not get his panties in a wad! :-) Unless you enjoy appearing retarded and having low standards in mentioning brand names... your choice, may as well learn how to spell it right from the beginning. Hard to take someone serious when they won't even take the time to spell the name correctly, kind of like how you'd feel if everyone pronounced and spelled you name wrong, you'd wonder why they don't care enough to get it right. Well now, let's dissect YOUR response here. You wrote "pronounced and spelled YOU name wrong" rather than the correct spelling, YOUR name. Step down from that pedistal and realize that everyone, you (intentional jab) self and my self included, can make mistakes. And by the way, the Autocorrect on my iPad changes the word Dometic to domestic. Give us all a break, here. And thank you for reminding me why I have not bothered with this forum as much lately as I have in the past.

RE: Dometic power awning slightly off center when closed

The product is NOT "Domestic" -- it's " Dometic ". It's amazing how many here don't seem to recognize that. And it's amazing how many spelling cops there are here.

RE: clumping spices

A small piece of a saltine cracker also works.

RE: Worried about developing leaks?

You should be more paranoid about your "never leaked" statement. How do you know if it never has leaked? Dry rot can hide very well and then present itself later.

RE: Is my 5th wheel over 12' high?

Only 5-miles? 2X4 on top of the roof air, and then measure to the ground.
