RE: Bottom of my BR slide rotting. What do I do?

On our Montana the leak was coming from a poorly caulked 4" trim piece on the lower edge on the outside of the slide. Water would get in, and the plastic covering on the bottom of the slide would hold the water in. Repair was not that hard. Remove lower trim and pry back plastic membrane. Cut out damaged plywood and replace. (a vibrating utility or detail saw works great) Caulk heavily and replace. I used Dicor non leveling sealant but Proflex would work as well. 2 years later and no recurring problem.

RE: Shower water pressure

The restrictor plate was just ahead of the shower nozzle. Three 1/16 holes, with 2 blocked. They are now 1/8 and if the pressure isn't satisfactory, the plate will be removed. Thanks for the help. J

RE: Shower water pressure

I was using the pump. Will try to locate restrictor device and disable. The 90 degree fitting behind the faucets only has about a 3/8 hole so I thought that might be the restriction. Will dig deeper.

Shower water pressure

In our AF811 the water pressure is great for everything except the shower nozzle. At sink level it might squirt out about an inch, but raise it to shower and it just runs down the side of the handle. Is this just a curse of the design? A plain hose with a valve would be better.

RE: Foam to fiberglass glue

Look in Home Depot/Lowes there is a cartridge adhesive specifically made for use with foam.

RE: towing fiver with 6 1/2 foot bed

No problem towing my Montana with a short bed. I do have a slider but seldom need it.

RE: Shocks

I have a full set of Rancho 9000's. Very happy with them. Very easy to install. Good ride. X - 2

RE: Black water tank flush

The water is still going in, it just doesn't sound like it is "rotating" The only real advantage to having it functional was that the tank monitor seemed to work fine after an occasional "spritzing"

Black water tank flush

2011 Montana Tank flusher always used to rumble quite loudly, but not today. Sounds like the water jet isn't randomly bouncing around. Is this something that can be fixed with an air compressor? Or is replacement the usual answer? Thanks in advance for your help

RE: Winegard Rayzar Antenna

Has anyone had any experience with the installation and operation with this antenna? I'm thinking of ditching the dish (I know that it's not a satellite dish). Another curious potential customer here. This is the self aiming model, correct? I have yet to locate anyone with first hand knowledge, customer or installing tech.

RE: Blow out or Use the pink stuff my personal review

Why is it that people will not drink out of their on-board tanks. Is the water source you have available to you not adequate? hard water? well water? We use pink anti freeze and drink/cook with the water

RE: Dicor

The web site shows they still carry Dicor. Myrtle Beach evidently didn't know this.

RE: Dicor

Did they say what this new product was? When they started with "this new product is so much better" I just left.
Jack Spratt 11/17/15 07:55pm Truck Campers

Went to Camping World to pick up some Dicor to touch up roof seams, and they said they were no longer carrying it, but were using a new product instead. Have others changed products?

RE: Stableload alternative

Energy Suspension was the company I was trying to think of. Thanks to all for your help. The homemade projects look interesting, and may be the way I go.

Stableload alternative

The other day someone posted pictures of a round rubber disc with a stud in the center to be used as an alternative to a lower stableload. Unfortunately I forgot to bookmark it, and can not locate the discussion. Thanks in advance if you can point me to the subject.

19.5 Wheels for 2011 GMC

Looking to getting 19.5 wheels and rims for my 2011 GMC 2500HD Which size tire do you use 225/70 R 19.5 or 245/70 R 19.5? Has anyone had Firestone FD 690 Plus? Or other recommendation, The Michelins look Pricey. Double Coins on the other hand are under $200/each. Thanks in advance JS

RE: Replacing the OTA TV Antenna

Keep us updated. I've been contemplating the same project, but am intimidated by the idea of putting a large hole in a leak free roof.
