RE: Duo Pane

If there is moisture between the panes your window has failed. There is no DIY fix. Time for either a new window or contact one of the few companies that can rebuild them. I think there is one in Florida that is popular, I don't remember the name.

RE: My spray port is a bit different - how to winterize it?

When the WH is bypassed you hook a hose on the spray port and pump a little antifreeze thru. For those confused, a spray port is common on toy haulers for washing off the toys. If you Google "RV spray port" your queries will be answered.

RE: Video Review & Install: AP Products Mopeka LP Tank Check

Interesting but I would point out that what you have are technically D.O.T. cylinders, also called bottles. Motorhomes have A.S.M.E. tanks.

RE: LED’S under awning

I used the cheap $20 roll of lights. I drilled a hole thru the wall of the trailer and wired it to a switch inside. There are no wires running on the outside of the RV.

RE: Should I use cruise control while towing a travel trailer

I use cruise but the answer for you could be relative to your rig. My old tow vehicle could not maintain speed in cruise control.

RE: When did TT's become "Campers"

Camper, RV, travel trailer, call it whatever you want I don't care. The whole discussion seems silly.

RE: Water flow

Thank you that did the trick. I cleaned the aerator last fall but it plugged up again. Thanks again. Sediment in the water heater will regularly plug the aerators.

RE: Is this overpriced because of the cuteness factor???

You will get tired of reconfiguring it constantly very quickly.

RE: RV re-painting companies recommendations?

Any body shop can paint it.

RE: Cleaning Exterior Cheap and very effectively.

One would assume that the spray bottle comes with a strength that is "ready to use". Is that not the case ?? Nope, the bottle with the sprayer is the same concentration as the larger bottle with a cap.

RE: How do you figure value on an old trailer in poor condition?

Remember, the seller never determines the value, the value is decided by the buyer. It is worth scrap value which is about nothing. Offer $100.

RE: Is this overpriced because of the cuteness factor???

I think it is ugly and besides the poor cosmetics don't understand why anyone would want one. It is barely more than a cargo trailer with some modular seats/benches added. Any of the a-frame trailers would give way more bang for the $$ and be lighter weight.

RE: Full time in DFW

Due to legal issues most campgrounds specifically prohibit using the campground as your residence. Maybe take a look at mobile home parks, their legal status is for permanent residents.

RE: Cleaning Exterior Cheap and very effectively.

Been washing with the product for years. The correct name is LA's Totally Awesome, the product called Awesome is a different product.

RE: Momentum M-series reviews?

Grand Design was attempting to be a step above the rest and build quality. They were one of the extremely small number of RV manufacturers that actually built and operated a quality control inspection department. Alas, earlier this year they sold out to Winnebago. Quality of current and future product is unknown.

RE: dead batteries

The statement of "3 solar panels" is very vague. What size? Could be anywhere between 5 watt and 150 watt. What load is on the system? Leave anything running?

RE: Which is the right move in a split second decision?

From personal experience in an out of control sway situation when I was sure we would crash - keep steady throttle and activate trailer brakes with manual control - we didn't crash. The arrogance of anyone stating that it won't happen to me because my setup is correct is absurd. It can happen to anyone, be prepared when it does.

RE: Truck bed water tank?

FWIW, my Aquatainers spend the off season in the basement filled with water as an emergency supply just-in-case.

RE: Where to take tire temps

I shoot the tread but the important thing is do all the tires the same. Regarding the next question which wasn't asked yet; there is no set temperature to look for. You want all the tires to be in a reasonable range, trouble is indicated when one tire is substantially hotter than the others.

RE: Backing into drive

I was taught the swoop/scoop or whatever you call it when I learned to drive semis. One thing that does make it easier if you are able to approach with the drive on your left. If the drive is on your right you will be backing in nearly totally blind.
