RE: Drill Bit Guide

For me the best way is to measure the drill size is with a set of calipers. Then you can just compare the decimal reading and you'll know if its a fractional, letter, number or even metric drill bit.

RE: Anyone convert a TT to all electric?

Only the oven/cooktop? As nothing else uses combustion air or exhausts gas directly into the RV. This can be replaced by a electric skillet or hot plate and small electric oven.

RE: Sink Condensation

Most higher end SS sinks have undercoating sprayed underneath to deaden sound, reduce condensation and retain heat. I would remove the sink mask off the mounting area and drain threads and apply a couple coats to the plastic sink. Spray foam could be applied the same way but I've never had any luck without getting it all over everything as it expands.

RE: water heater relief valve?

Turn off pump or shut off city water supply off and water heater. Then slow open relief valve and drain out relief valve to establish a air gap in the top of the water heater. Turn water pump and heater back on. The reason it leaks is because fluids dont compress so when water is heated it expands out the relief valve. Thus the established air gap now compresses and absorbs the water expansion without escaping out the relief valve. Actual procedure is in the water heater manual.

RE: Charging extra on service for non-locally purchased RVs

Seems everyplace I deal with from the grocery store to the vehicle dealers, motel rooms offer some sort of discount card package or preffered customer BS... I usually save more at the smaller places by asking for a cash discount which most retailers would make more by charging 20% less for cash...

RE: Too many kids?

I usually avoid setting up next to seasonals if I can just to avoid the great crowd senario. Golf cart derbys Baggo champianships and screaming kids are not what I look for as a great camping experience. .

RE: Turn Signal Converter

Vibration or voltage would be my guess I'd change them over to LEDs as an easy attempt to fix this.

RE: Auxiliary outside canopy?

10x10 EZup is what I prefer you can add a screen kit or solid wall kit. Almost a necessity from tent camping days.

RE: Screen door mod

Where did you get this fabricated? I used the boat plastic the last time but it was permanently mounted with rosettes. I like the snap in feature you have there. Thanks. Its the same vinyl they use for boat tops so any boat canvas place would be able to sew one up and add the snaps.

RE: Pushing your PUP around by hand

Once you get your trailer in the garage put a set of wheel dollies on then you can move Any direction without pulling forward and backward.

RE: Screen door mod

I had a flexible vinyl window made which just snaps on and rolls up for easy storage. It keeps the heat or air inside without closing the main door. Also gives a great view outside when parked. http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y60/yamadooed/Camping/null_zpsfba4a002.jpg width=640

RE: Broke my TV torque wrench

I have a couple Proto micrometer style torque wrenchs that have held up well over the years. Cal certs included along with a decent case. For a 50-250 ftlb will run you around $250.

RE: 30 amp service in garage

I would add the 30 amp 120v RV outlet along with a 20 amp 120v... Seems I always need to run some sort of power tools nearby... Unless of course moneys no object then just have a 50/30/20 box installed...

RE: T.T. tounge jack

Barker 3500 24" makes leveling and hooking up WD bars a no sweat operation. With the taller head unit and no handle it allows me to open the TV tailgate. No cons yet...

RE: Weber Q question. Does size matter?

I've outgrown the smokey joe and Go anywhere gas now its the Q220. Its big enough if you like to grill and small enough to carry along. The extra height and width come in handy for guests or full meals...

RE: Equalizer Hitch Setup Help

Sometimes you doing it the wrong way is the right way... I've met plenty of self proclaimed experts over the years verifying this fact is true...

RE: Harbor Frt Cordless Drill or Impact

Stick with a cordless name brand drill Ryobi, Dewalt, etc. as slamming an impact gun shouldnt be needed for stab jacks...

RE: weber q adapter help

Check the hose end that replaces the disposable fitting. What happens is the pin on the Weber regulator is to short and doesn't depress the schader valve in hose enough to release the gas from the hose fitting.This happens on both the generic and weber hoses. I used a tire schrader valve tool and removed the valve completely to eliminate this issue. Unfortunate but Weber would not let me talk to engineering and only their bubbly customer service rep spewing responses from a trouble shooting flow chart about opening the valve slowly and sequence blah blah stuff was as far as they would go.
