RE: How many have crawled under your trailer recently?

Mine is completely covered. The only thing that I check when I adjust the brakes is to make sure the cover is OK Jack L

RE: Is your travel trailer cozy and homey??

Yes, and we love it. We call it our "Little cabin on wheels" We snow bird in it every winter, and as much as we love our seven month mountain home, we can hardly wait to get in it. I am fairly handy and have made all kinds of cabinets for every where that there was a space. I matched all the factory wood work. We have made many other improvements, (too many to list), but it makes it a one and only Jack L

RE: WDH while staying hooked up overnight

I have been doing it for 10 years several times a year on overnight stops. I don't even put the tongue jack down or stabilize, unless I am way off level Jack L

RE: Campfire smoke

All my life I have heated with wood, and now that we snow bird in Florida, it is hard for me to figure why people want a camp fire on an 80 degree evening. We have many times had to put up with a neighbor with a smoky fire blowing our way. The worst is when they throw their plastic bottles in and the cloud of black smoke comes our way. It is hard to keep from saying something, but we usually just head into the trailer and hope that they don't stay as neighbors too long. Jack L

RE: Testing water system psi when buying RV?

Maybe just me, but I would never put 50PSI in my water pipes. Jack L

RE: Two questions: Hub temp and hitch lube

I use Teflon ball lube on the ball and I do a walk around at every fuel stop and just feel each hub. I also check the hitch and safety chains. It has worked for me for the past ten years and many long distance hauls. As soon as we unhitch, I remove the hitch and ball and in that way I don't make the mistake of brushing the ball with my pants. The ball lube is made for a reason ! Jack L

RE: Need a Replacement, My 7"x 7" Post is Deteriorating

Build your own. I built one that is 10" x 10" x10" out of scrap 3/4" plywood with a center piece of 2" by stuff as a stiffner. I also built four smaller ones for my stabilizers. I spray paint them black every few years, and I have been asked many times where I bought them. Jack L

RE: When will gas stations start truly accommodating trailers?

Did it ever occur to you that those gas stations just might have been built before trailers were made longer and longer ? I have a 25 footer and would never go longer. I also have my own 12 volt compressor that does a great job of topping off the tires. Over the years I have listened to the people with monster RV's and longer trailers complain about not being able to get into a camp site, and it should be obvious to them that the camp sites were built a long time before they got their monster RV Jack L

RE: Shut off water at home???

Yes I shut the main off and I flip the breaker for the water heater off. We had a water heater leak while we were away and it not only burned out an element in the water heater, but ruined a solid oak floor Lesson learned ! Jack L

RE: Buying in Florida....

RE: Another Fishing Question! Tennessee & North Carolina

A lot of people fish Price Lake just a ways up the Blue Ridge Parkway from GrandFather. Price Lake is a small pond. It is a pretty tourist destination, but the biggest fish you will get there will be about eight inches long. If you are looking to just dip a worm it is fine, but if you are looking for a good fishing experience, I would never go there. From a local ! Jack L Price Lake is on the BRP. I don't know about "touristy"...sure if you go intop Blowing Rock or Boone, which are miles down the Parkway, but even then, not so much. As far as small pond, I would not say it's a small pond. Small lake perhaps. It is 47 acres. And that's a good bit of paddeling in a canoe or kayak. Price Lake is a small pond. It is a pretty tourist destination, but the biggest fish you will get there will be about eight inches long. If you are looking to just dip a worm it is fine, but if you are looking for a good fishing experience, I would never go there. From a local ! Jack L

RE: Upgrade Kitchen Faucet

I did ours two years ago. Got a nice Delta with a high goose neck spigot at Home Depot. It was the easiest plumbing job I have ever done and took all of ten minutes. All the connections are hand tight, per the directions. My wife is very happy, and we all know if our wives are happy, then we are happy Jack L

Fontana lake 4. the French Broad river in Asheville 5. the Nantahala River 6. The Toe River many other good places too Jack L

RE: Modifying the plumbing.

It's a campground that will let you dump your grey water on the ground? Wow.... Anyway, if they let you, I would tend to agree with leave the vents and gut what you don't want..... What do I do about those pesky little vents for the vent pipes? Leaving them as is will mean that the mosquitoes will visit me. I could throw some screening up. Just cap them. you can get Plugs/caps at any plumbing supply house or Lowes, etc, and they are as cheap or cheaper than screening jack L

RE: Modifying the plumbing.

Yes, but I would leave the trap in the pipe to prevent insects from coming in. I would also pipe it away from the trailer so you won't end up with a mushy spot under the trailer that would be a breeding ground for mosquitoes Jack L

RE: Is this surge guard OK?

My two cents worth and why I wouldn't have the cheaper one. 1. the cheaper one does not have automatic reset. Which means that if it trips out on low or high voltage you will have to manually reset it, (just like if a breaker trips out on overload). This translates to: if you are gone for the day, and it trips out, nothing will be working in your trailer until you get home and reset it. Think how hot it will be in there on a summer day! I made the mistake of getting the cheaper model with out knowing the above. My wife and I winter down in the Keys and go kayaking all day long. Bahia Honda State Park which is one of the places we stay at is notorious for spikes of low voltage, and it only took coming back to a hot trailer a few times for me to get rid of the el cheapo. I gave it away. 2. The expensive one has an automatic reset, but it also has an 8 second time delay to enable an AC unit compressor to work properly Good luck on your decision Jack L

Question for you plumbers

I am installing a water filter on the incoming cold water supply to our washing machine. The connection on the filter is plastic threaded female and I will be using a male threaded plastic (PVC) on PVC piping. I have always been told that you don't use Teflon tape when you are going plastic threads to plastic threads. Is that correct ? Or should I use it ? The instructions with the filter say "never use pipe sealant or pipe dope" just looking for the above question answered not suggestions on using PEX, etc Jack L

RE: Electrial Question

test your voltage at the pedestal. Ideal should be 120 volts. If you are only getting 115 or less, it is time to move away. It will damage any thing you have that is motor driven. If you are getting a decent reading there, then check one of your trailer receptacles. If the voltage is low there, it is in you trailers electrical system Jack L
