RE: Travel Trailer CEILING/ROOF WATER DAMAGE - need advice!

Commonly a leaking roof results in a rotten roof and rotten floor. That is why the dealer said it is totaled. Inspect very thoroughly before deciding a course of action.

RE: Real scoop on Fiberglass skin trailers?

Check the construction. Most fiberglass RVs use bonded panels. The stick-n-tin trailer with fiberglass option is probably now just stick-n-glass, not the same as bonded panels.

RE: USB 120 volt outlet

I picked up the receptacle yesterday and after removing the receptacle from the rv wall I swapped the mounting tabs from the rv one to the new one and it worked just fine. I don't know what mounting tabs you mean but I will reiterate what others have said. When replacing an RV/mobile home receptacle with a residential/commercial receptacle, the new one must be in an electrical box. This is a safety code requirement.

RE: USB 120 volt outlet

I prefer to plug an adapter into a 12vdc receptacle. I always have 12vdc but only sometimes have 120vac.

RE: Water pump won't shut off

If it is pumping water, and not leaking, the pressure switch at the pump is bad. It could also be as simple as a particle in the pressure switch interfering with its operation.

RE: battery maintainer

Either one will work. The 8930/50 distribution center comes with a series 9800 converter/charger which is three stage and can stay connected indefinitely.

RE: 12V LED TV options

Lots of options. Go to the store and look for televisions that use a power brick to reduce to 12vdc. Get rid of the brick and connect directly to 12vdc.

RE: RV Exterior Painting

Yes but no writeup. It is the same as painting a car. Just prep the surface, mask, and spray a good quality automotive enamel.

RE: New GPS App for IPHONE and Android

Heck,I just use Google maps on my Galaxy S-5 and have never had a problem with route finding and it's never steered me wrong. I also keep a paper highway map handy for a quick area reference. That only works when you have a cellular connection. Copilot and Pocket Earth work offline. With these apps the maps are on your phone, not the internet.

RE: Gray tank problem

Improper venting. Do you have a roof vent?

RE: battery maintainer

Thanks for the response. I could leave the converter hooked up or use maintainers. What would be better for storage? No way to know without you sharing what converter and what maintainer you have.

RE: Want new TT trailer but don't want a "Throw Away"

www.airstream.com ...Airstreams have been in production for over 75 years and 80% of them are still on the roads today.... So you are saying that only 20% of them made it back home? :B

RE: LED tail lights.

Replacing only the tail lamp with an LED will most always disappoint. You should replace the entire fixture with an LED fixture. Your original lamp was 402 lumen and 38 lumen. For an LED to be brighter it has to beat these measurements plus be properly designed to work in a reflector type fixture.

RE: The pink stuff in the toilet.

Doesn't matter at all. The seal doesn't care if it is wet or dry.

RE: New GPS App for IPHONE and Android

I have GPS Copilot and also Pocket Earth. I haven't decided yet which one I prefer. They work offline by using maps downloaded to your device, they do take over 2 GB of space each.

RE: 12 v problem

If you are getting 12.7v from the converter, it is not charging the battery.

RE: I'm confused about propane.

...A 30 lb tank cannot be filled over 80% if the valve is working right. 80% of 30 = 24 lbs max in the tank. 24 pounds is about 5.7 gallons + -. 5.7 gallons is less than 22 liters Your info is wrong. A 30 pound bottle holds 30 pounds of LPG when filled to 80 percent of WC (water capacity). LPG weighs approximately 4.2 pounds per gallon so a full 30 pound bottle holds approximately 7 gallons.

RE: Ultra-Fab Power Twin II Review

Thanks for the report. I look forward to pictures and more info. How much have you used the system so far?

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

Forum guideline is a max width of 640. If a picture is larger it causes every post to run off the page. I appreciate not having to constantly scroll back and forth. The moderators spend an inordinate amount of time editing pictures to conform with the forum guidelines.

RE: stronger rear end

An owner can make mods that improve the towing feel, nothing you do will change the tow rating as set by the factory.
