RE: Wash wax waterless cleaning

From the video it looks like the vehicles they were cleaning were pretty clean in the first place. I wonder how this stuff works on road grim?

RE: Diesel or Gas?

You pay a premium for a diesel engine and then a premium price for diesel fuel. I have always owned diesel powered trucks, but if I purchase a new truck it will have a gas engine.

RE: The GPS Got Me

It finally happened. We were headed down the Pacific Coast Highway in Oregon. It was dark and raining. We'd been driving for 6 hours and just about to the Campground I had programmed into the GPS. The map showed to turn right in 500 feet. It then said turn right here. So I turned right. It didn't look quite like a road that a State campground would be on but I followed it anyways. It got narrower then turned to gravel and ended a mile later at a locked gate (into the back of the campground). I wound up having to back up the whole way, about a mile, out to the highway. I then had to back out onto Highway 101. The correct entrance was another 1/4 mile down the road. The GPS got turned off for the rest of the trip. I been there. Done that too. Now if I am in doubt I call the campground. Cell phones are good for something.

RE: Removing 5th wheel Hitch from pick up bed

Get a folding engine hoist ( cherry picker) with an extension for the boom. I have been removing my hitch with an engine hoist for 15 years now. It was worth every penny of the $90 I spent to buy it. Like was said above, I had to add a short wood extender to reach the hitch from the rear of my long bed truck.

RE: Towing 5th Wheel level.

The above commented on the fifth wheel nose being high, but I believe your question concerned the nose of your truck being high. If that is so, then the only way it could be a problem is if the trailer load transferred to your truck through the hitch exceeds the max gross load rating for your truck.

RE: Is Top of the World Hwy paved

Where I grew up all we had were dirt and gravel roads. The road through my hometown didn't get paved till sometime in the 1960's. So when I drove to Alaska,pulling our fiver,I heard all the horror stories about how bad the roads were. But... I found the roads to be a lot better than the roads I learned to drive on. It is all a matter of perspective.

RE: EPDM Rubber Roof

I don't know if all that is needed. The black specks are just bits of mildew which will not harm the roof. My EPDM roof is 14 years old. I used to wash it, but I don't even do that anymore. What is most harmful for your roof is to get it snagged and torn on a tree branch. These rubber roofs are put on commercial buildings and last for years with no maintenance whatsoever. This is all my opinion, but don't let them talk you into anything that you may not need.

RE: Uninstall Microwave

My microwave installation looked like the picture above. And, my microwave just slides out after the decorative vents at the top and bottom are removed. I think they are not mounted to the shelf above, as in your home, due to the stress the microwave bouncing up and down on the road would put on the shelf.

RE: Need a scaffolding idea

Do you have a pick-up truck or can borrow one? Put down the tailgate, back up carefully, and put the ladder in the back of the truck. Bill I have done this a couple of times, I gave up due to the increased instability risk. Even if you use a three foot step ladder a fall can be for more than three feet all the way over the truck bed rails to the ground.

RE: Need a scaffolding idea

I would not buy a commercial grade wood ladder. It has been my experience that wood ladders tend to have faults over time. I would opt for a commercial grade fiberglass laminate step ladder. I have had an eight foot step ladder like this for years. It is very sturdy and shows no signs of deterioration.

The ceiling fan in my fiver uses 110 volt alternating current.

RE: Norcold computer fan install

I installed two such fans. I used small alligator clips on the end of the fan's two wires. The positive wire clips to the refrigerator's light holder the negative clips to a cooling fin. This has my fans go on when the door is closed and the fans go off when the door is opened. These fans have worked faithfully for five years now.

RE: Planning trips

We travel extensively in the summer. I plan the general route on how to get to a destination where we have an interest in staying for a while. We have got so we stay off interstates as much as possible. We drive 300 miles a day when traveling and, when traveling, usually only stay in any one campground for a night, at the most two. Each night, I try to find a main and alternate campground in the vicinity of the next days drive. We don't make reservations and almost never have a problem finding a campground with something available. Campgrounds fill up on the weekend. So, when we stop at a campground on a Friday we plan to arrive early and stay Friday night and Saturday night. We do make reservations at destinations where we want to stay for a week or more if we think the campground may not be available otherwise. Last year we traveled over 6000 miles and only made one reservation.

RE: black dump valve

It is a common problem. Most RV supply stores have stuff to fix your problem.

RE: Rapid Voltage Loss while driving/idling

Could it simply be a case of a bad connection at the batteries. If it were me, I would remove and clean the battery terminals to rule out that possibility.

RE: Floor didn't make it through the winter

I would say, as you know, when it got frozen and brittle it cracked at the stress points. Have you thought of what to replace it with? You need something that can take the stress of being really cold. Or, find an nice warm barn or garage to keep it in.

RE: Fifth wheel hitch theft

I have hauled my hitch all over United States and Canada for 17 years with my hitch held in by the pins only. I still have the hitch. I don't think you have to worry about your hitch being stolen.

RE: Awning Question

Nice to see that someone stills uses light projection for images.

RE: Patio awning question

If won't go all the way up there is something wrong with the spring or springs. You can either troubleshoot and repair it yourself or get someone who is experienced to do it. I do most of my own repairs, but for the awning I have it fixed by a professional. There are lots of guys who come to you for on site repairs. Perhaps you could find a guy like this. I would imagine that one of your springs is broken and will have to be replaced.

RE: Interstate Bathroom....er....etiquette

YOU KNOW. I have been in a kzillon traffic jams during our travels. And, not once, have we ever been approached with this problem. Perhaps, the solutions here are to a problem that does not exist.
