RE: Ice maker line leaking

Some models did not come with shut off valves. The line and valve on our Big Horn is located under the kitchen sink. The line runs outside the frame to a low point drain which some may mistake for a shut off valve. It is a common, but expensive headache to deal with until you get it properly set up

RE: Looking to hire mentor/share expenses for 2-6 weeks

If you're only going to try rving for a short trip, i.e. 2-3 weeks, make sure you do it during a stretch of lousy weather. It may change your perspective. Living this close with the love of your life still has a few speed bumps. With a platonic stranger...

RE: Electric help

If you have a reel for your power cord that is one place to look. Make sure you have power to each of the 25 amp legs.

RE: Two Toilets, Two Problems

If the one that continues to fill is a Thetford Aqua Magic the valve is not fully returning because of the pedal binding on the plastic shaft. Lifting with your toe may solve the issue temporarily, but won't work indefinitely. I never tried lubricating the plastic shaft. Replacement with a Dometic 310 was my solution.

RE: Money transaction when selling a RV question

I've used bank checks with no problems. Just call the bank to verify the check is good before releasing the title/camper. Your bank should be able to help you figure out a safe plan. Take a picture of buyers drivers license and license plate etc

How to remove Pro Flex caulk to renew

Is there a product for removing old caulk? The old product hardened and cracked after just one year. Never had this problem with Dicor or silicone products, but would like to hear what your favorite product is. This is the lower trim caulk on the side of a truck camper.

RE: Looking for Opinions on Keystone Montana for Full Timing

We snowbird in ours 6 months of the year in SC where the temps drop to the freezing point frequently. Our Montana seems to do as well as most and better than some. Newer models offer more insulation.

RE: Wolf Creek/ Artic Fox owners

We have the Onan generator and are happy with the choice. It's not as quiet as our Honda but a whole lot more convenient. Being able to use the microwave and bringing the batteries up to voltage are our biggest uses. The small Coleman AC has worked fine at 90+ probably running at 50 percent after cooling the camper. Camping in the 20's is a non issue, the furnace works great. You won't regret the Fox Landing.

RE: Thetford toilet water kept running

The pedal is wearing/binding on the plastic shaft on which it rides. This can be checked by lifting the front of the pedal with your toe. If it stops seeping, you found your problem. It. Will be an intermittent problem until either the pedal flies off or the bowl overflows. The inexpensive fix is to buy your Dometic 310 and replace promptly, or keep chatting with Thetford techs who claim to be unaware of any problems and recommend you buy their rebuild kit for $40. This is a common problem if you use the search or Google the problem. Hopefully you'll get this solved before the toilet overflows.

RE: TC wiring location

The one in the bed is used for our fifth wheel. Isn't it the same type plug? Same 7 pin plug The one in the bed lets me use the tail gate with everything in the bed when the fifth wheel is hooked up.

RE: TC wiring location

RE: TC wiring location

"If it's installed aft of the wheel well, you'd have to plug in the wiring prior to backing under the TC, correct? How does that help prevent pinching the bundle? I was leaning towards either forward of the wheel well up by the rail or under the bed at the front end of the box somewhere." I don't plug in until the camper is loaded to prevent the wires from getting pinched. Same with my fifth wheel. It's an easy place to access.

RE: TC wiring location

Mine is between the wheel well and the tailgat frame. Pro ... Easy to reach Con....guess there isn't any It has never been an issue when carrying stuff. Caveat: don't get too close to the wheel well or you may drill into the inner wheel well liner.

RE: Vent Hole

Drill a 1/2" hole first then probe around to make sue you are next to a frame or wiring. A hole saw makes a much neater cut when working with fiberglass/ filon.

RE: More in the ongoing toilet smell saga...

, "before I rip the toilet out to try to fix or replace the seal" It really isn't much of a project. Pick up new seal for $5, disconnect the water, undo two nuts (probably 9/16) Remove the old seal, clean and replace. Total time ....1/2 hour There must be a you tube video to guide you through the project.
