RE: No floor joists in 2001 trail-lite 30' tt!

...1/4" plywood panels sandwiched on 1-1/2 foam. Towards the rear the water,grey,and black tanks support the floor..... Terrible design, your best bet is to install a plywood floor on top of the existing floor and then whichever floor covering you prefer. Another possibility would be to install hardwood tongue and groove flooring. T&G laminate flooring will not add sufficient rigidity. Either way you will need to compensate for the additional thickness and don't forget about the increased weight.

RE: What is wrong with the new TT

Great thing about toy haulers, ours carries 100 gallon of fresh water. We chose to do a major remodel and upgrade so we could keep the large tanks and built in genset.

RE: Progressive Insurance

The roof cleaner I used was made by Dicor.And as far as doing nothing after a storm I did not see any damage to the roof before pulling down the road.But thanks for your comment.This membrane did not come off by the termination strip coming loose because it started behind that area.The fact of the matter is that I have insurance for a reason and Progressive did everything that they possibly do to not pay this claim.They have fabricated story after story.When I prove them wrong they come up with a different reason. Hope it works out for you.

RE: Provincial/State Organization???

Some years back we had no candidates for state director. We were told that GS would be happy to absorb our $100,000+ in assets but would not make any promises beyond that. It would be wonderful to get an official answer from the current heads.

RE: Progressive Insurance

I want to warn all RV owners to avoid Progressive insurance.On 7/27 while pulling my camper the roof membrane came loose and damaged my vents and tore off my antenna.I made a claim to Progressive on 7/28 and was advised to take the camper to the closest dealership which was Pontiac RV in Pontiac Illinois.I advised Progressive of a major storm event that had occurred in my home town on 7/22 and explained that I believed that the roof had been damaged by hail or tree branched that had been blown down.The serviced manager at the dealership also confirmed that there must have been storm damage for this to occur.When the adjuster looked at the trailer he first indicated that the cause of damage was from improper maintenance.This camper is a 2014 model and my 7th RV.When I informed him that I inspect and clean my roof at least every 90 days and provided receipts for rubber roof cleaner and Dicor lap sealant then I was informed that Progressive would investigate further.I called my agent with my displeasure and was assured that they were reconsidering.I also supplied weather reports from the national weather service along with radar images proving the fact that a major storm with damaging winds and hail had occurred on 7/22.10 days went by and I got a call from the adjuster telling me that Holiday Rambler had used the wrong glue on the roof because it had a OSB Roof deck.I contacted Monaco who now owns Holiday Rambler.(Rev group)I supplied them with my vin and was informed that Progressives claim of the wrong glue was totally false.I also contacted Dicor and they also confirmed that the proper adhesive was used.The bottom line is that the worms will come up with total lies to avoid paying claims. I am currently seeking legal help and plan to bring a law suit to regain the money that should have been paid without question on this claim.I have also filed a complaint with the Illinois insurance commission and the. bbb. Please avoid this company at all cost!!!!!!! What you described sounds like the termination strip at the front failed allowing air under the membrane. Is that what happened? I don't see how a storm could cause it to happen. Also the forum rules state; Posts are not allowed in which a local, state, or federal consumer action board and/or legal counsel is/have been involved. This includes posts related to future, ongoing or past lawsuits.

RE: Propane Refill

New cylinders (they're not tanks, which are different) are good for 12 years. Why recertify or mess around when they expire? $25 every 12 years is mice nuts. Maybe because 30# and 40# bottles are a lot more than $25. If you have a 20# bottle that is expired take it to an exchange location and get a newer one that includes 15# of LPG. The exchange company will certify it before sending it back out.

RE: HELP Security Camera Ideas suggestions?

Dash cams operate on 12vdc. With a larger memory card they will record for eight hours or more Many dash cams can also be set to motion activate.

OSU65Bob, thank you for posting about your experience. You may have just saved myself or others going thru the same trial.

RE: Hengs Vortex II fan poorly balanced

I have read the same complaint about a Fantastic Vent fan, no manufacturer is immune from having defects. I have the Vortex, Fantastic, and Turbo Maxx and they have all been fine.

RE: Weekend Warrior ramp question

I didn't want an undermount but fear I may have to go that route I don't believe that I would be able to bolt a mount through the door without significant reinforcement. By the time I did the fabrication and work it will be a lot simpler to spend $100 for the Bal spare tire carrier.

RE: AutoFanKit

I'm curious how it works. Since the thermostat is in the return air, how does the thermostat read the temperature when the air isn't moving?

RE: HELP trailer sway almost killed us!

You may have a brake issue but brakes don't cause sway. Your most likely issue is not enough weight on the tongue.

RE: 30-32' TT - Are they too long, difficult to park, etc?

Most national parks have a 30' limit for TT, some are even less.

RE: Interesting conversation

I don't know anything about a discount but most RVs have warranty claims before they are ever sold.

RE: Weekend Warrior ramp question

...Doesn't your Warrior have a spare tire mount under the bottom? No, I bought it in 2006 when it was maybe nine months old. I always have carried a spare in the TV because the trailer has no mount. We are preparing for a 6 - 7 month trip and I am tired of the spare being in the way.

RE: Converter fan isn't running

Low budget or temporary fix would be to supply manually switched power source to fan. You will need to turn it off and on as needed. Plugged into shore power = switch on. Operating on battery power = switch off.

Weekend Warrior ramp question

I want to add a spare tire mount to the outside of the ramp door. It appears possible to still have adequate clearance to operate the ramp. I have looked on the inside for screw or nail heads under the texture and have been unsuccessful. Mine has aluminum on the outside. From pushing on the aluminum it feels like studs underneath but I wonder if anyone has had the ramp apart and can describe the construction of the layers? I know there are under mount options but I don't care for what I have seen. I want accessibility to be as easy as possible. There is no room on the tongue. I am open to suggestions, thanks.

RE: Floor Rotten

OK, sounds simple enough. However, I'll bet it's not as straight forward as that. Thank, Hap I gave the CliffsNotes version, I am not going to write a book and I have no idea the specifics about what you may be working on or your skills.
