RE: Adding a photo to a post

It's not that hard. You 1st need to join Photobucket.com Load your pics onto Photobucket You need to make sure they're in a 640x480 format. When posting a pic on here (and this is just me) you need to click on the Reply To Topic spot that's located at the bottom and top of the page on the left hand side. Next find the pic in Photobucket you want. Open it up and on the right hand side of the pic will be a box. It will say 'Links to share this photo'. Left click in the IMG box. A brief image saying 'copied' will appear then disappear. Now go back to the box where you are replying and copy and paste it there. I don't use the little image box that's above the reply box. I used to, but this works well for me. Keep trying, once you get the hang of it it's pretty simple. Many thanks, Jack L

RE: Adding a photo to a post

No offense, but that's why there are sticky posts: it saves rehashing the same questions over and over. And gives a set place for the answers to common questions. No offense, but I am not good at all this computer jargon I'll just forget about adding the picture and live happily ever after. If someone asks me a question, and I know the answer I'll gladly be polite and answer them. jack L

Water heater check valve question

A while ago I asked a question in regards to a noise I had in my water heater, and the general concensus was it was the check valve. Now I want to remove it and replace it with a valve. My problem is getting it out. In my estimation the factory did a horrendous job in installing it and had a system that couldn't be taken apart with out cutting the pex. I thought I was going to break the whole water heater getting the connector from the check valve to the pex off, since they just used a pressure connecter from the pex to the end of the check valve connector, but I finally was able to turn it and get it off. Now I cannot budge the check valve from where it connects to the water heater. When I look into it, I can see what looks like a white nylon ring, and I am wondering if I can some how get some small needle noise pliars on and pull it out. I am afraid if I try to punch it into the water heater, I will end up with loose parts that might clog up the pipes at a later date. Any suggestions on either how to get it unscrewed from the water heater or removing the guts so I can just install my new connector and valve? Jack L

RE: Sadly selling our TT this Saturday....

There is life after children. When our children, (all eight of them) were young we always went tent camping. As they got older and into the sports, bands and other high school interests, that went the way of all good things. Then one by one they graduated from college, got married and have their own families. After the last one left, we bought a small pop up and realized how much fun we were having so graduated to a 19 foot trailer. Now we have a 25 footer, snow bird in Florida and use it a few times here and there in the summer, and I think this is now the best times of our lives as much as we did enjoy raising a bunch of wonderful children. jack L

RE: New guy, not sure which tow vehicle to choose

For what it is worth: I had been towing a 25 foot, 5000 pound trailer loaded with another 500 or so pounds with a Ford F150( 5.4L 8 cylinders) with a cap completely filled with another 500 pounds, with two kayaks and a canoe on the roof I just upgraded to the new Dodge Ram Hemi 5.7L (with "tow haul") and just completed a 6000 mile trip with all the same weight and equipment and it tows with much less strain and better over the steep NC mountains plus I am getting 2MPG better Jack L

RE: Atwood gas water heater water connection question

I am pretty sure the check valve on my hot water outlet has gone bad and want to replace it, but it appears that the pex pipe is connected to it with a banded pressure fitting. I would like to change it out myself, but don't want to buy a special tool Questions: 1. If I change it, would it be better to just install a shut off valve rather than the check valve, since I already have two shutoff valves for winterizing and that is all the check valve is used for? Yes you can do that and that's how RV's used to be plumbed in the past - with multiple valves. 2. Are there fittings available for the pex so I could just cut off the pressed fitting and replace it with wrench or hand tightened ones ? Yes, you can remove the barbed fitting you have now and just install either a sharkbite that's threaded or a traditional fitting. Guy Thanks, Guy

RE: De-Winterize?

My criteria is to just wait till I get to the first camp ground. Then hook up to water and flush a bit before taking a shower or washing dishes. We drink bottled spring water, so I don't worry about that jack L.

RE: Size matters

Use state parks where you go on Reserve America to book your site. Prior to booking, look at the map and pick out the site that you want. If it is available, it is yours Jack L

RE: Cheap Crummy Stereos and speakers!

Just the opposite ! Our "low end" travel trailer came with a Jensen system. Everywhere we look we have these hideous black half bulb type things clogging up the ceilings The big selling feature according to the salesman was the speaker system, which we could have cared less about. It had a humongous sub woofer taking up valuable storage space under one of the dinette seats, so one of the first things I did was take it out and give it away. (I built a large drawer where it was, and now all the pots and pans get stored in it, and there is still more storage space behind the drawer) It had a separate big switch ( I guess for the woofer) taking up valuable space on the surface of a blank cabinet above the one that had the Radio/CD/DVD, so this year I threw that away and replaced the blank with a cabinet door (matching the others) and a shelf which made another nice storage spot that we didn't have before. I also replaced one of the bulb type speakers with a flat home made one. It was right in the way of where I installed another cabinet and would have prevented opening the door. I like my flat home made speaker better than the other ugly monsters. Different strokes for different folks ! Jack L

RE: Looking at TT for new year

My wife and I have a 25 footer that we winter in for four months. To us it has all the comforts of home. It has a bath with shower and lavatory and a kitchen with all you would have in your home kitchen, plus heat and AC. The bedroom has a queen size bed, but then if we had two other guests, we have a sofa that opens into a bed, and the dinette makes into another bed. I would not want anything bigger Jack L

RE: Info for snowbirds

You forgot about the 2:00PM tricycle races. The guys race and the girls put on their old cheer leader outfits and do the cheering. They have the 25 yard course for the over 80 crowd, and the 35 yard one for the under 75 guys. That is followed by mandatory oxygen tank breathing and then nap time. I knew a guy who was thinking of trying out for the shuffleboard team, but the standard course was too long for his shots to reach the scoring triangle. jack L
