RE: How do you switch between holding tanks.

Do you have two toilets? The black tank(s) would be under the toilet(s).

RE: National Park Vandal

when the Native Americans did it, it was considered historical and worth saving. At that time the Native Americans owned/controlled the land. Now the citizens of the USA own/control the land through the government. She didn't get my permission!

RE: How difficult is it to get a title?

Easiest way is for the "legal titled owner" to request a duplicate title.

RE: National Park Vandal

The really humorous part is that she was stupid enough to post pictures on the net of herself in the act. I love it when criminals display the evidence of their criminal acts, it makes it so much easier to prosecute.

RE: old school observation.... tire whacker

When I went to school learning to drive truck, the instructor warned us we would look like an idiot thumping a front tire. The technique is used on duals because you can't necessarily tell by looking if one is flat. You can sure tell by the difference in sound and feel when they are thumped.

National Park Vandal

Anyone know Casey Nocket? The feds are looking for her. From Modern Hiker; http://i0.wp.com/www.modernhiker.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/creepytings_canyonlands.jpg width=640 Apparently she is a New Yorker who went on a great western adventure this summer. She considers herself an artist and was having such a great time she decided to vandalize many of OUR National Parks. Personally I wish that I would have met her on the trail while she was practicing her 'art'. If you want to search the net, you will find a huge amount of information. Here are a couple pages to get you up to speed on the subject. http://www.modernhiker.com/2014/10/21/instagram-artist-defaces-national-parks/ http://www.modernhiker.com/2014/10/23/why-the-creepytings-national-parks-vandalism-is-a-big-deal/

RE: 12 Volt Power to My Outlets

1) Is it normal not to have any of the outlets in the 12 volt circuit? Typically there is one 12v receptacle at the location for the television. 2) Assuming the above is true any recommendations for getting 12 volt power in a few outlets? Go to your local auto parts store and buy 12v receptacles and install where you want them. I have installed several in every RV I have owned. Does your cpap transformer plug into 120v and then reduce down to a 12v output? If so, an inverter hooked to your battery array will give you 120v that you can plug the transformer in to. You can plug directly into the inverter or run a line to a new surface mount 120v receptacle dedicated to the cpap. Correct answer! No, wrong answer. It makes no sense to convert from 12vdc to 120vac and then back to 12vdc when you can just plug directly into 12vdc. My wife's CPAP operates directly from 12vdc with the appropriate cord and receptacle.

RE: Back up lights

I carry two shop rags and a roll of electrical tape. Before backing at night I hang the shop rags over the TV tail lights. Getting rid of all that reflection makes a huge difference. If I added additional lights, I would mount halogen fog lamps under the front of the trailer and point them at the trailer tires. My spotter worries about what is behind the trailer, I need to see where the tires are tracking.

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.
