RE: Black Tank Flush System Question

It isn't clear to me what is going on. Maybe I'm just dense or you could describe it further. Even pictures maybe? You must realize, we have no idea what "camper" you have?

RE: Trailer Shopping

I would think that removing a fixed window and replacing with an operating window would be a simple customization job.

RE: 37 RV Hacks

what does the term "hack" refer to? It is nerd talk for a creative solution to a computer problem, a work around. The word is now migrating into other venues meaning 'a solution to a problem'.

RE: Plugged up Black tank

Sounds like you are a candidate for a macerator.

RE: I want a wax that leaves a black haze

Wellllll, I've been driving my van for 16 years so I must be doing something right. we have this nasty thing here called winter, complete with salted roads. I also haven't wasted thousands of hours washing and waxing during those 16 years. Like I said, it looks as good as most any other 16 year old vehicle. Along the original topic, there are colored waxes already. Back in my youth, I had a red sports car and I did wax it a time or two with red wax.

RE: I want a wax that leaves a black haze

Have had RVs for over 20 years, have never waxed one. Don't wax cars and trucks either. My 1998 van has never been waxed and looks as good as any other 1998 van. What do you do to keep them shiny and slick? I know some spray on chemicals can make them look shiny, But do not make them slick. I wash the RVs once per year with bleach and LA's Totally Awesome. I wash the other vehicles several times a year with an automobile specific soap product. The occasional wash keeps them shiny enough for me. What is the benefit to being "slick", doesn't seem important to me. My brother is the type that waxes his car monthly and washes every couple days. He finds great self worth in having a clean vehicle. He is a very shallow person. It has always seemed silly and a waste of time to me.

RE: Whoo oooh My storage place now has el hookups!!

Both of mine stay plugged into power while stored. But, both have three stage 'smart' converters. Some converters should not be connected continuously.

RE: Y R exhausts/hookups on awning side

When are manufacturers going to learn? I know they don't all do it, but for the ones that do.... there's nothing like all those hoses and hot air next to you when you're sitting under an awning trying to relax. Definitely is a huge con when looking to purchase! Don't like a unit? Don't buy the unit. There are others.

RE: just hard to get a RV dealer to take your money

...Sales guy says he talked with his boss and if we want it to give them a $1,000 deposit they'll start the deal. Once our deposit and offer has been “accepted” (their terms)they will look at trailer from head to toe and then we’ll “go from there”.... Normal operating procedure. Dealers get many tire kickers that waste their time looking at units with no intention or ability to buy. They are requiring a deposit (earnest money in real estate terms) to insure that you are a serious buyer before they invest time and resources. I don't think they are trying to do anything other than sell an RV and maybe some accessories. They just want proof that you are a serious buyer and not wasting their time.

RE: holding tank maintenance

The only risk in using any of those tank treatments is to your wallet. Many people have been brainwashed into believing advertising hype and the idea that higher price means a better product. Not true, none of those products are necessary.

RE: I did it! Advice for others

Glad it all worked out. Why I started using those BAL scissor chocks that go between the tires, one on each side. I found out that a regular wedge chock doesn't work if the tires are up on boards or blocks to level the unit. That pivot happened once to me before I had the Hensley, almost exactly as you described. One side on blocks and the other side chocked, and as I raised the TT off the ball it started to go sideways. Fortunately it was coming toward me as I stood beside the tongue, so I was able to stop it and lower it back onto the ball quick before it got away. http://bucarsrv.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/chocks.png width=240 Hopefully you realize the manufacturer says those are not for preventing a vehicle from rolling.

RE: I did it! Advice for others

It is great that no-one was injured. I also commend you on your positive attitude and acceptance of blame. Learn from it and live on! We can all learn from each other when these things are shared.

RE: holding tank maintenance

I've never understood the need to "clean" waste tanks. Are you planning on storing potable water in them for later use? Most of the products sold are for odor control. There is no need for cleaning if you use an adequate amount of water. Don't fall prey to marketing gimmicks, save your money on all those products.

RE: Mildew or Mold on Window ledge.

It is a very common issue. Bleach or bathroom cleaner might work but if the staining is too bad you will have to replace it or live with it.

RE: Cool Mods - Thread restored 10/18/2012

Is it possible to add these to my TT? Wall outlets http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/71VPt3sKM2L._SY355_.jpg width=300 As explained the only issue is that they have to be in boxes for safety. I won't be installing them because I prefer to charge my USB devices from the 12vdc rather than the 120vac. I always have dc power but only sometimes have ac power.

RE: Battery Voltage Monitor

I simply cut the leads from a free Harbor Freight digital VOM, hardwired it, and stuck it on the wall. Total cost - free.

RE: Thinking of buying a TT

Reminds me of the bumper sticker; "If you have to ask, you wouldn't understand!" Seriously, RVing will cost you money, lots of money. I wouldn't live any other way and we are supporting two rigs. I am basically a very frugal person. If I calculated the cost of RVing, it would kill me, so I don't count the cost.
