RE: removing "Ghost lettering" left from removed decals on paint

Buff and hand polish as its not just removing oxidation as also the area under the decal has no scratches and they just need to be blended to hide as you'll never remove it completely.

RE: tire size question

The words faster and cheaper are what usually get me in trouble. Thats why when my oem BlowMaster tires looked grimm after four years I opted for Maxxis replacement which took three days from order to mounted for $535. For your weight trailer the smaller tire max load would be fine you could even go to smaller 14" rim LRC and still carry the weight.

RE: Simple Night Light Mod

I use a simple night light in the bathroom 120 v outlet retrofitted with a blue led as it seems to light up the legos and dog toys strategically placed along my walking path...

RE: 5.4 is a screamer!!!

If you leave the trans in OD towing over 6000 lbs any distance your trans should be needing rebuilding shortly regardless of your axle ratio. And yes your mpgs will increase also. A friend of mine lost his tranny not realizing he should tow with OD off. I've been towing in O/D for years and no problems. Of course the 4.30's help in that department! Funny how some people give advice on something they have never tried for them selves. Yes you can drive with it in OD if you have a V10 but the 5.4 with a 3.55 will be shifting in and out of OD and your trans temps will be going thru the roof. And Yes I've tried it many times esp. with fuel over the $4 a gal years. :)

RE: High Pressure Propane Hose

That hose connects to the regulated or low pressure side of the propane line on the trailer... You will also need to remove the regulator on the grill to make it function correctly...

RE: Zip Dee awning lights

I attached a bungie cord with a hook on each end of light strand and just hook it to each support arm. I'm not sure this would work with heavier light strands but mine is lightweight. For a heavier set of lights I would run a cable or rope to support lights from.

RE: RainX Windshield Chip Repair

I've yet to see a home glass repair or even a professional repair that is decent. I advise everyone that if its anywhere close to the drivers view to replace the glass.

RE: 50 amp service

Putting in a 50amp 240v outlet is easy peasy as is a 30amp 120v as is a 20amp 120v. Lotsa war stories shouldnt scare most from a simple project. Now the price of the wire is what scares me.

RE: If you've got a rear bed slide - Jayco X213/X254 or others

I find most sites fit just the box size fine with the bed extended over the grass similar to what most popups do. We've had a few sites where we extend out over a hill which makes for a nice view as our Kodiak has a rear window to look out. Decision of squeezing in is mostly due to the availability of more desirable smaller scenic campsites vs larger more open to maneuver larger trailers into sites.

Selling old toads

Has anybody had more luck or interested parties/$ in just listing toads in a classified labeling it as a completely setup toad or is it just easier selling them as a basic used vehicle without the towbar lights etc?

RE: Sanitize Fresh Tank & Bleach

The dollar store bleach will work well as long as its regular/ no scent and be sure to check the date codes to make sure its not old stock as no more than a year.

RE: Sanitize Fresh Tank & Bleach

I do one cup of regular chlorox per 50 gallons once a season fill and purge all lines and let stand in lines and tank for 24 hours. Drain and flush once. Always try to do it a minimum of a week before first trip of season to let any residule bleach evaporate out.

RE: Servel S819 not cooling from propane

There will be plenty of skilled RV mechanics at a Nascar race camping... Most will be happy to share some of their vast knowledge and years of experience in helping you troubleshoot your problem... Might cost you a few beers for the effort but I've seen some ingenious ideas on older customized RVs over the years...

RE: Olive oil?

I always buy the large evoo from sams as its cheaper and I use it instead of the stick of butter or lard bucket we grew up with...It took me a lil while to get used to the difference in taste but now I prefer it.

RE: Totally bummed with Electric Jack

I'm looking at getting a Barker, and I noticed they make a Tall one. Has anyone tried this taller one to solve the problem? I don't want to lose the LPG tank cover, and my tanks are already inched forwards a bit to clear my secure battery box... So much going on in that little triangle of space... Had same issue with the manual handle and with the Barker 24" there's no need to rotate the head and it clears the 30 lb propane cover iffen you need to manual crank it...

RE: Down to a decision, give your vote on electric tongue jacks

If you purchase a 24" the head is located higher up on pole and not even a factor in the tailgate opening radius...
