RE: Rear Corner or Fixed Bed?

Phoenix Cruiser 2350, maybe others. I'd check Nexus too.

RE: Noisy New Converter - What to Do?

I've had 3 of them, and none ever hummed. Sure, the fan can run, but that's not a hum. I think it's defective.

RE: 6" 2" Tall

I'm not tall. But I will put in a plug for my Class C, a Sunseeker 2300 on the Chevy chassis. It has a residential size queen bed, 60x80. You didn't ask about beds, but I thought you might be interested in that aspect too.

RE: Fuel price gouging on the Alaska Highway

This is an example of what I like to call the living in the boonies tax. Some things are cheaper in the boonies: land, houses, wages, services. Some things are more expensive: anything that takes serious capital and transportation.

RE: National disgrace

Here is an example of what's being discussed. Gives you the cold sweats just looking at it. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/3M4ECwZNmAswk8qbwSmULSiNTUnUJl08kPTqW0REocM=w741-h556-no width=640

RE: National disgrace

DW and I enjoyed BBNP, including the trinket peddlers. One of the trinkets became an ornament on our Christmas tree. I mean really, these poor guys sneak across the stream, leave trinkets and a money jar. Oooo, scary! Criminals!! This has NOTHING to do with illegal aliens coming to mow your grass. If the peddlers were causing a problem, there would be a crackdown. But they aren't, so there isn't. Oh, and horse poop! The horrors!!!

RE: Ooops! Now to fix it ...

No need for all that heavy hardware! As one of the videos I posted shows, all she needs is one of these, available in every hardware store in the country in various sizes: http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/61R2khqm-9L._SL1500_.jpg width=320

RE: Ooops! Now to fix it ...

Does the rear side have a vinyl insert? If so... Pull it out from the bottom. This should expose the heads of screws which have pulled away from the body. You can try to rescrew them, or try longer screws. Most likely the best way will be to redrill the screws into new holes away from the existing ones. If it has the screws I'm talking about, the right way to do this includes getting some putty tape and applying it under the trim piece. Afterwards, it still would make sense to use some Proflex RV caulk or similar product on the upward facing lip of the trim piece. In a pinch for now, buy some GOOD foil HVAC tape. It is great stuff. You can tape the edge into place with it, and maybe a dab of caulk on the top edge of the tape where it starts. A mobile RV repair service could probably fix you up in 15 minutes.

RE: QUESTION New Fords And Chassis Battery Disconnect

Minor correction j-d, they recommend removing the - cable. But it's so hard to get to (on the Focus) that some are disconnecting the + cable.

RE: Peso Tanking?

I regularly read a couple of political economist type columnists. I don't research what they write to be sure of its accuracy. With that disclaimer out of the way... One writes a lot about the dollar versus other currencies. He says the dollar is gaining value against all of them, and expects it to continue. It's a currency war by the major competitors to the dollar. They all want their currencies to be cheaper, to discourage their imports and encourage their exports. Apparently it has affected the peso as well. Even the Loonie is down vs. the USD, from what I've read. I'm sure our Canadian members can affirm or correct me on that. (It affects the NHL salary cap calculation such that my Blackhawks might have to shed a highly paid player to meet the cap.) Anyway bottom line, the USD is moving higher against almost all other currencies. So travel to other countries is getting cheaper. Imports will be cheaper. Exports will be more expensive.

RE: Duramax battery fluid grows over time

Yes, there is acid and rust damage beneath the battery. Not eaten away damage, but needing to be neutralized and painted. The batteries are weak and not charging well anyway, so I think it's time for two new maintenance free ones.

Duramax battery fluid grows over time

I first noticed a rusty stain on the gravel where my 2004.5 Duramax is parked every day, under the passenger side battery. So I checked the fluid levels, and darn, it's over-full, did I do that??? I used the hydrometer to suck out the excess. This was a year or two ago. So today I checked it again, and it's over full again!!! This battery is partly covered by the sheetmetal edge in front of the windshield wipers and cabin air intake grilles. It keeps gaining fluid level in the rear three cells, which are covered by one big 3-hole cap. Rainwater running off the sheetmetal above could run right onto the cap and the cavity it sits in. That's all I can figure. Anyone ever run into this?

RE: Winter Curtains?

I hung curtains with a tension curtain rod just pushed up under the valance. I left them extra long so they lay a little on the top of the dresser stopping the cold air from coming out underneath. The one over the bed has nothing at the bottom, so the velcro sounds like a good idea for me on that window. Our bedroom windows are dual pane but seem colder with a draft that the others don't have. They look fine and frames seem tight. Don't know why. Maybe it's just more noticeable by the bed.

RE: Winter Curtains?

not totally attractive, but I use reflectix behind the shades.. I slide it behind the shades and up under the valance on the top and side panels.. bottom I sit in window frame... It isn't perfect but was a quick inexpensive way to give me some additional insulation. I am still debating if I want to put curtains or not as I plan to trade in another 2-3 years. Thanks. I tried that out today. I made it the full width inside the valance. It comes down to even with the bottom of the window frame. The shade is snug enough at the bottom that it holds the reflectix against the window frame bottom all the way across. I am going to get stick some foam weatherstripping on the back side of the bottom bar of the shade, and maybe also on the window frame bottom, to really tighten up the sandwich. It might work.

I see I asked the same thing this past January, lol. Still looking....

RE: Winter Curtains?

Velcro: continuous strip across the bottom, or just a small piece every so often? I'm wondering if it needs a continuous strip to stop the cold air from dropping out.

RE: Winter Curtains?

Don, thanks. Do you have a valance box across the bottom of the windows? Or it is open like mine? Any way to post a photo of one of your curtains in place?

Winter Curtains?

I'm looking for examples of removable curtains or other cold air blocking, to use with the type of valances shown below. Goals: -Removable for day time use -Stop cold air from dropping out of the bottom -Not messing up the looks of the valances or walls very much. I didn't photograph the bed side-wall window that opens. They both leak air though. I could try a plastic winterizing sheet over the one in the photo, but not the one that opens. We are using this in AZ, where the nights can be cold but you need the windows open during the day. (BTW the plastic you see in the window is in the workshop, several feet behind the RV. It's deceptive in the photo.) Our makeshift solution last winter was to clip a blanket to the bottom edge of the top valance. Then tuck the blanket into the sides, and drop it down and tuck it behind the mattress at the wall. It helped. There is no gap at the top of the valance. I don't think the top needs to be perfectly sealed. The sides and bottom are what count. I'd like to see what others have done. https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-A_OyRhBv_nI/VIs12-2d1VI/AAAAAAAAB6k/UJSrTHqCh_I/s800/2014-12-12%252012.36.17.png width=320
