RE: RV Park, Full Amenities but no hot water

Don't expect them to offer recompense. Decide what you think is fair and ask for it from the owner, not an employee. Be polite and courteous at all times.

RE: equalizer, where to buy?

First go to the manufacturers website and determine the correct model. Then go here and search the model number; http://www.google.com/shopping

RE: Bizarre California health care sitch

You were talking to the wrong department. The billing department only collects on bills. They are not authorized to do anything other than demand the payment their computer files say you owe. Tell them you want to talk with the 'patient advocate specialist'. Make sure you straighten this out or they will nick your credit report.

RE: '101' Propane question

Assuming your trailer doesn't have a permanently mounted propane tank, and popups typically do not, the propane tank (technically a "bottle") is exactly the same as that used with a gas grill, with the possible exception of capacity. You can use the trailer bottle for the grill and vice-versa. If you want to get technical, it is true that it is a bottle but it is specifically a 'DOT cylinder'. They are required to meet Department of Transportation standards as portable cylinders. Yes, they are interchangeable.

RE: Question obout light fixtures

Thanks all - I finally got the bulb out. I took a look at these and see that there are emitters all around. What good does that do against a plastic reflector like mine? The lamp in there now shines light in all directions, doesn't it? The LED replacement is meant to mimic the output of an incandescent lamp.

RE: Toadless

Her insurance is obligated to "make you whole". I would demand they pay for an identical new car. There is no reason you should take any loss. Don't forget you are also entitled to time lost from work, damage to your clothing, personal effects, and pain/suffering. In your case the pain and suffering will be very small.

RE: The Camera Never Blinks..

Long thread about dash cams; A recommended dash cam brand/model?
beemerphile1 05/21/15 10:46am General RVing Issues

I don't think those pumps are approved for potable water.

RE: 30 amp cord

For clarity, your 30 amp cord is a 110 volt cord. You need a 30a to 15a adapter available at all RV dealers and even many campground stores.

RE: propane tank valve stuck

Remember; Righty - tighty lefty - loosey Not on the old Propane connections. LOL They have left hand threads. Talking about the valve, not connections. Sitting at my computer I can't see from here whether or not they are attempting to turn the valve handle the correct way.

RE: Question obout light fixtures

Oh heck - the fixture says 921. So wiggle and tug. Wear gloves or take caution just in case the glass breaks! Did you replace with LED? I'm also wondering if I can replace the backing with something reflective. Otherwise, I guess my LED lights will be the ones that are flat and one sided. On the reflector beside the lamp it says 921. Just grab the glass part and pull it out.

RE: What Caulk to Seal Outside Shower?

The correct fix is to remove it and use butyl tape under the flange area. It can be done without disconnecting the plumbing.

RE: Propane leak test

Thanks. If I understand the manometer will show the drop in pressure but not the volume rate of leakage. In a way it does show the rate- no drop from an 8" water column movement in 3 minutes means the leak is small enough to be inconsequential (some states call for up to 15 minutes- the time I use for testing). The trouble with watching the changeover indicator is that you have a volume of high pressure LP in the pigtails, which can keep the pressure up even with a leak. Amazingly some people would rather guess than know.

RE: Propane leak test

Look at this link, build a DIY manometer, and check for leaks according to the instructions. http://www.rverscorner.com/manometer.html

RE: Wagon Trains

Oh puhleeze. I've yet to see where "Biker gangs...rule the road." And that's a bad link. X2 on that and the sky's falling! As a motorcyclist myself (not a 1 percenter) I have always found the paranoia regarding bikers comical. I have been around the 1% many times without trouble. It is about like anyone else, you stay out of their business and they stay out of yours.

RE: 33gal freshwater, about how long will it last?

The paranoia about water purity runs rampant. The RV water system is perfectly fine and safe to use for drinking if correctly maintained.
