RE: Loose rubber seal on bay door

I have used super glue on the door seals that came loose. It holds great. Use the liquid super glue not the gel.

RE: LP Refrigerator use at high altitude

We have crossed the Rocky Mountains several times with our fiver and never had any problems with using the refrigerator on propane.

RE: Adding a better lock to the door.

I wonder if the door lock isn't pretty good actually. I used to store my fiver and it was broken into twice. Both times the lock held so they broke out the big picture window beside the door. One time the broke out the entrance door window but they couldn't unlock the door because I had both locks set.

RE: Loading weight & distribution on a 5th wheel

If you put weight right on the axle the pin weight will not change. If the weight is behind the axle the pin weight will be less. Weight forward or the axle will add to the pin weight. As you put weight forward of the axle more of that weight is transferred to the pin depending on how far forward the weight is. Likewise the further aft the weight is behind the axle the pin weight is decreased accordingly. Get a good physics book and look up lever arms. Basically, the fulcrum is between the two axles

RE: Help with trailer brakes

I have gotten those messages on my dash. I found that the female round plug on the truck was defective.

I don't see a problem with that. I agree with you trying to get a ruling from the BWI parking folks.

RE: 5th Wheel Longevity

We don't live in our fiver full time. We live and travel in it four months out of the year in the summer. Our fiver has been down the road for 114,000 miles and is fourteen years old. I do make sure the running gear maintenance is looked after and repair or replace things in the department as needed. The frame seems to be in excellent shape. The rugs, curtains, sofa, bed, dinette, stove, air conditioner and refrigerator are all original items. We have had to replace the microwave, two water pumps, three storage batteries, the toilet, kitchen sink faucet, the shower head, the TV antenna system (New antenna and a new coaxial cable run from antenna to TV), and the electric convertor. We have repaired the window cornices and valences several times. I rebuilt the cabinet that held the old 32 inch TV so a new flat screen could be installed. I have had to repair all the inside doors for one reason or another. I have put new brakes on it. Replaced the spring shackles with wet bolt shackles. I have replaced the shocks twice. We are on our third set of tires. We had the foldup entrance steps rebuilt. We have done repairs to main slide mechanism twice. I rebuilt the ladder to the roof. I have repaired the two roof vent covers due to the mounting bolt holes cracking. I have replaced the front 1/4 of the rubber roof. I have had wheels wells rebuilt four times due to tire failures. Oh yes, and replaced numerous light bulbs and fixtures both interior and exterior. Guess that's about it.

RE: Need help on what tires to get

I have always ran Michelin's on my trucks for 20 years now and have had really good luck with them. If you go for the Michelin Light Truck tire they call the LTX M/S be sure and get the one that is ten ply loaded rated E. They will cost you around $220 each plus mounting. I just had a set installed for $960 total cost tires and mounting at WalMart.

RE: Normal Lifespan of A/C Units?

The AC on my fiver has been working for 14 years now. I keep my fingers crossed as it really gets a workout in the summer.

RE: Copy and Paste

"I've been having trouble using copy and paste when composing a post for quite some time." I did a copy and paste to put your first sentence in this message. You don't have to select quote. You copy from one message with a right click to outline the copy material and a left click to copy. You do the same thing again in your message to paste what you copied.

RE: TV Free air antenna

I replaced my batwing with this jack antenna when my batwing got damaged because I forgot to lower it. I find this jack antenna to be most satisfactory. We dropped DirectTV several years ago and now we watch movies on our DVD player and watch the local channels we get over the air with our jack antenna. In the past three months we have traveled from Florida to upper Vermont, then on to Nebraska, down to Missouri and Texas before come home via Alabama. We got TV stations at most every place we stopped. Closer to the big cities we would get 25 to 40 channels. I am most satisfied with this antenna.

RE: Inept or not properly trained dispatcher

Had a blowout on my fifth wheel on I-80 pa. Dispatcher took info and stated she would call back in 15 min. 1 hr later I called back stated she was still looking for a service tech. I Called back 1/2 later she state she checked within a 100 mile radius and could not find anyone to respond. She told me to call the State Police . I called the PA state Police and they stated I was close to a service station and they would send him.. Barons Sunoco showed up in less then 10 minutes and did a great job changing the tire and getting me back on my way. The charge $50. Less then what the roadside assistance cost and a lot faster. To make it worse another dispatcher called back after about 2 hrs later and stated that she wanted to confirm that I cancelled the need for service. I advised her I did not cancel the service call and that I was instructed by the dispatcher to call the police. She told me she would send me a form to fill out to reimburse the cost. I'm waiting for the form. I hate to say it, but I have used Good Sams road service about three times over the years and each time I found the dispatcher I got on the phone to be inept.

RE: Can you recommend a wireless TV earphone for late night use

I have had good luck with these. Buy two or more as they are inexpensive. The transmitter plugs into an audio jack. So you have to have an audio out jack on your TV. http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-5-in-1-Hi-Fi-Wireless-Headset-Headphone-Earphone-for-TV-DVD-MP3-PC-Black-/331236943818?pt=US_Headphones&hash=item4d1f42a7ca

RE: Additives for Grey Water Holding Tank

We have never put anything in our grey tank except drain water from the sinks and shower. It's 14 years old and the grey water tank has never put out a detectable odor and we us it a lot.

RE: Popped off 2 cabinet doors already!!

We hold our doors shut with little bungee cords. Inexpensive and Works well.

RE: Kitchen sink -- very slow drain

Remove 'P' trap under sink..clean it out This would be my recommendation. It's that goose neck shaped pipe under the sink. Pull it off and check if it is plugged up. They are designed to be taken off. However, It sometimes is a bit difficult to get to in you camper, but I bet you will find in full of something.

RE: Best Way to Pay for Gas in NM, Co. Utah ?

This happens all over the United States. It is a pain in the ass. And, some states, the stations will advertise a great diesel price and when you stop to fill up you find that, that price is for commercial trucks only.

RE: Purchases in Canada

This is just my two cents worth of venting. We used to go to Canada a lot, but stopped going because of the increasing hassle at the border crossings both going to and coming back from Canada. It is just sad the way things have progressed between our two countries.

RE: Electricity issue? TV blacking out when the heater is on.

I agree. I think your problem is electrical waves from your heater blocking your low tv signal strength. It doesn't take much to scramble these digital TV signals.

RE: Fueling up at a truck stop

In general, when you get fuel at the truck islands you do have to go inside and talk to the teller. You may have to leave a credit card or pre pay to get fuel. Oh yes, it is a good idea to get the pump number you are at as they usually want to know that. Some stops have a telephone near the pump and you can use ir to find out the procedure for getting fuel. These past few years tho, I have been finding some truck stops have upgraded their pumps so that you can use your credit card just as you do at the car pumps. It is also very imperative that after you fill up you move your rig forward out of the pump area to let a truck behind you get in to refuel. It is not like at the car pumps where some park their car at the pump after fueling while they go do your errands inside the store. Lots of stations have car diesel pumps in the car islands. These are usually the pumps on the end. I use them a lot. You can tell which are the diesel pumps as they usually have two hoses attacked to the pump. You usually find that the diesel hoses have a green handle. However, I have found some to be colored yellow. Practically all the gas stations that have diesel fuel advertise their price in a green color. Just use your head and be polite and you will get along just fine.
