RE: Black tank cleaning problem.

I don't know if this is the right forum to ask this question. I have a friend whose husband died a year or so ago. She has a Class C RV. like my RV. She doesn't know when the tanks were dumped last, I would say it must have been the last time the RV was used, but the RV has been sitting for several years. So my question is what is the best way that the Grey and Black Tanks to be cleaned out and what is the best way to sanitize the Fresh Water Tank is? I have heard that using RidX in the Black Tank might work, or just use Calgon Liquid water Softener in the Grey and Black tanks and drive the RV around for a coulee of miles and then dump it? Thank You for any ideas. If I posted this in the wrong forum would the moderator please move it for me?

RE: What's the best battery setup for 200w solar?

So the 'single' battery compartment will hold 2 batteries? I would not choose to go flooded battery over AGM. Agm's are just too nice and maintenance free. I have to agree with the above statement. You can store them upside down if you want. :h

RE: Picture Posting Test Thread

Here are some mods we made to our Jeep Grand Cherokee. I installed new running boards and an EZ5 Road Master Base Plate and also we installed an SMI Stay-in-Play Duo Braking System. We also put new LED lights on our 2005 Jamboree also we moved the Trailer Plug. I hope that this works. Thank You 1492 http://i.imgur.com/9o9D6wCl.jpg

RE: Do Not Disturb While Driving mobile feature coming

My Galaxie Sky Phone has the "Do Not Disturb" feature on it. Also, my Ram Truck has it in the U-Connect cellphone feature.

RE: dam it?

I'm too old for these new things... Had to search google for what was an AIR DAM... Google says.... "air dam A metal or plastic barrier extending down from the front bumper of a motor vehicle and intended to enhance aerodynamics and stability by blocking the flow of turbulent air under the chassis." Now I kinda know what you all are talking about haha... I would have added the word Jim after your post title... I'm a Star Trek fan... Roy Ken Great reply. I will not answer because I don't own a Ford.

RE: Installed new Dometic Rooftop A/C - Do I Dicor caulk?

I am not sure but if you have a gasket for it you might not need to unless it calls for it in the instructions. If I was going to ad a sealer I would use Sikaflex 715 Roof Sealant.

RE: Towing jeep 4 wheels down or on a trailer?

no you can't backup with 4 down but haven't the need if you look ahead a bit. LEN well actually you can with limitations but that would be a new and controversial thread. bumpy LOL You ain't just "Whistling Dixie" with that statement!

RE: I need help

Your surge protector indicates 'Open Ground' and doesn't allow power Your friends surge protector indicates 'Open Ground' and doesn'tt allow power SO you remove surge protector and plug in anyway Why even have a surge protector :H Your old reliable outlet is no longer trusty.......fix it and then trust your surge protector especially when anther one shows same issue X2, Call an Electrician and get it fixed.

RE: Towing jeep 4 wheels down or on a trailer?

4 down. It's so easy an adult can do it. This is one job where I don't need my Grandson..... X2 Road Master or Blue Ox...... Towbars and Base Plates.reasonably priced. Also would recommend SMI Brake Systems. I just recently bought a RoadMaster Nighthawk Tow Bar and a Road Master Base Plate for my 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee. We also got the SMI Pay in Stay Duo Brake System. I hear that SMI has a Great Air Brake system. My RV doesn't have Air Brakes so I really can't comment on the SMI brake System for vehicles with air brakes. Good Luck.

RE: Bought New/Used TT & Pro Mover Says Can't Pull It Out!!!

That will be cheap at 2x's the cost. $1500.00 would be cheap. Take his offer and run, but get it in writing, and pay him.

RE: Exercise my generator?

I would say almost 18 months. I had it serviced because we were having problems with it surging. I then would go over every 30 to 45 days. Then I got sick and we have some what neglected it since, But we are trying to get it to start so we can exercise it the last time we did it it rip the breaker switch on the generator . Now it won't start even after resetting the generator brake switch and or priming the generator at the generator. I too have a Onan 4000 on my toy hauler. Had the same issue with surging. Installed a fuel shut off valve just before the carb. Now run the carb dry every time I get ready to store (a week or 3 months) and I never have surging issues when I start it up. Just purrs and cost $15 USD for parts. I understand Onan now just replaces the carb if gummed up, don't even attempt to clean it. My riding buddies with other brands have now installed the cut-off and report the same good experiences. One place I took it for repair, said that in California it was against state law (thanks to Gov. Moonbeam & Carb) so I don't know I called Onan and asked for a rebuild kit and they said that they were not allowed to sell them in Taxifornia aka California. Anyway I have got to know the man that runs the Authorized Onan Repair shop here so I kinda trust his word. He told me what to do to see if it will start so, I guess I will try his suggestion. Thanks for the idea about the fuel shut off switch.

RE: PU Bed Lining

There is an RV shop in east county that charge an absence price ..Absurd? I really think that they gave me a price of $7500.00 to redo the Roof, and then they said that if I bought the two Skylights and all of the three vent covers, and an air conditioner cover, they would not charge me to put new ones on. Because my RV is not a Class-A RV. I would say that between $3200.00 and $4000.00 is not too much, Also, someone recommended a Bed Rug. on my 2016 Ram Laramie I have a Leer Campershell and a Bed Rug inside the bed. It's great.

RE: PU Bed Lining

I have a friend that does Rhino Linings. He even does them on the roof of trailers and RV's. There is an RV shop in east county that charge an absence price to do the roof of an RV. They wanted almost $7000.00 bucks to do my 28ft 11in Class-C RV.
