RE: Keeping warm

We have camped to ten above. Heater runs constantly as does the dehumidifier. Stayed nice & toasty

RE: Emergency Brake Cable

Never heard of a hitch coming off a rig. That is where I hook mine. If the hitch came off I would think the force of the hitch flying off would pull the brake away cable one would hope.

RE: 5th Wheel REAR stabilizing jacks lubrication questions

I have used WD, silicone spray and axle grease. Yes grease attracts dirt but it lasts so that is what I use put only where contact points are.

RE: Weep holes....REALLY?!

This baffles me. Is it really cheaper for the RV industry to continually produce poor quality and design rather than raising the bar for both on the asembly line? I guess so. And we keep buying it

RE: New to the hybrid adventure

I believe my Bantam listed below is very similar. The back bed took some observation to find a best way. Not much space so we make sure the bunk end support frame is under the mattress and retaining straps are snapped. We then fold the canvas like an envelope is made. A 45 degree overlap seems to work. Check for bungee's that they are inside and fold it up. No room to leave bedding on matress. Hope this helps.

Hi Dutch. I would love to replace the manifold as you did with your oven. No one wants to talk to me about which parts can make this happen. Probley due to liability. How did you determine which part would work? I know Atwood makes ovens now with no mercury in the unit so why can they not tell me what parts I can use to make it worik? Is that too much to ask?
Oasisbob 05/07/17 07:25pm Tech Issues

I realize making parts that contain mercury is a bad idea. So now Atwood makes units without mercury. Why can they not make an alternative part to help those of us who need a non mercury replacement? That's all I'm saying. For this reason I want to buy another brand. I researched Atwood, Wedgewood & Dometic and found they are all owned by the same co. So looks like Saburban or a marine unit?
Oasisbob 05/06/17 08:36pm Tech Issues

My ATWOOD oven burner frfuses to light. Part I need positively no longer available. Atwood has stopped making original part, as it contained mercury, and offers no alternatives. I am now looking at a new oven but want to steer clear of any and all Atwood products as customer support stinks. So I know the RV industry often makes several brands but really the same. So what brand can I purchase that will have replacement parts and a good track record?

RE: Opinions on 3400 champion inverter generator.

Part with a little more cash, or buy used, and go with a Honda EU series or Yamaha equivilent. Everyone within a two mile radius thanks you in advance.

RE: Stinky Slinky storage

I use extra large zip ties to fasten my PVC to the inside of the rear bumper. Has held great for several years. I also put a 45 elbow with screw cap to get my 20 foot hose in and out. One of my better mods IMHO

RE: LED strip lighting

I have this in my camper. Despite good surface prep it did not stick well. I used a few carefully placed thumb tacks grabbing the side not puncturing the light. Very delicate. They have worked well for me three years now. 15 feet of blue into a toggle switch.

I am at a stand still on this project. I would like to replace the oven controller, burner and safety mechanism to solve my problem. Cannot fine someone who will talk to me about finding the right parts. Sounds odd but I think liability keeps them from telling me what parts will work. They only want to sell me parts for my specific model which are no longer made by Atwood or anyone else. Atwood really has left us hanging in the wind as consumers on this. Looking for a used unit but it is the smaller 17 tall. Hard to find
Oasisbob 05/01/17 02:12pm Hybrid Travel Trailers

A new possibility I will look into. I can find a used unit but most are five inchs taller which I can work with if need be. I am really disapointed with ATWOOD on this
Oasisbob 04/27/17 08:22am Hybrid Travel Trailers

Ed at Laurelhurst knew of my model and said mercury was a component and outlawed. He told me Atwood offered no alternative part which is disapointing but not surprising. I will do a bit more research to confirm. Thanks for the help though. I apreciate it
Oasisbob 04/26/17 01:17pm Hybrid Travel Trailers

Well my excitement was short lived. Laurelhurst confirmed the part I need is no longer available and was actually outlawed due to it containing mercury. So new oven time. Atwood did indeed leave the consumer with no options. On the plus side I really like the folks at Laurelhurst Distributing and will keep them in mind for the future.
Oasisbob 04/26/17 11:04am Hybrid Travel Trailers

Thank you soooo much. You are one of the folks that make this forum great. Makes me wonder why two places said parts not available. Not worth their time? Thanks again
Oasisbob 04/26/17 10:48am Hybrid Travel Trailers

The oven in question is ATWOOD MODEL# R-A1731W2P SERIAL# A08020077 I will call Laurelhurst today. Thanks for the suggestion. I was told by Etrailers and a local trailer shop Atwood no longer supports this model.
Oasisbob 04/26/17 09:58am Hybrid Travel Trailers

The oven in our R Vision Bantam Trail Lite will no longer heat up and I have learned that the part I need is no longer available. Thanks Atwood for the great customer support. NOT Anyway we use our oven most every trip so need to replace it with a used unit. My question is about size. Are they universal or does size vary? BTW there is no thermacouple on this model. The knob controller valve is faulty.

I really apreciate this and always seem to go in and buy something. Their competetion, Johnson RV, closes their dump station on weekends. Not so helpful
