RE: Slideout seal caulk

I don't think my slide seals even have, "caulk."..? I'll have to go and look.

RE: Jeff Gordon and the Chase

A nightmare scenario for the "Chase" Some guy (let's say Dale Jr.) wins 9 races during the regular season and 5 chase races and gets 2nd at Homestead...2nd to a guy with no wins the entire season and looses the Cup. Could happen.... :E

RE: Faded front caps - my solution!

Nice rig and it looks great. But, for $1200 to clean it up after only 2 years, I'd might consider finding covered storage. Ours is much older and still looks brand new...the secret is covered storage.

RE: Correlation between weight and "quality" build

Like you said - It's hard to say. Back story for us: 4 trailers. 3 "light" and 1 heavy. Generally the heavy one has been the best of the bunch quality wise. But, all I can say is that if you own an RV you better be handy with tools and keep up meticulously with maintenance.

RE: Slide out awning

Your going to get a ton of opinions on this subject. IMHO they are worth every penny. True....and my opinion (having had rigs with and without) is that they are worth every penny.

RE: how do I undo these hoses?

Correct answers above...I have a little plastic tool that looks like this to depress the collar so the hose can be pulled out. http://www.handsontools.com/assets/images/mel1558.gif

RE: Oregon State Parks....campsite sizes?

The reservation system for Oregon State Parks details the length of each site in every park....and shows a picture of the site. Oregon State Parks Home Page

RE: Jeff Gordon and the Chase

A driver doesn't HAVE to win to get into the Chase, it just makes it easier. Ryan Newman was in last year without a win and came close to taking home all the marbles. Very true....I'm just asking/wondering IF Gordon doesn't get in on a win or points, will Nascar finagle him in..??

RE: Safety chain placement

Why would having a WDH have anything to do with crossing the chains or not? Just wondering?

RE: Safety chain placement

All my hitch receivers have been securely bolted to the frame anyway. Safety chains (criss crossed) have always attached to the receiver.

RE: Rest area dumps and hose fittings

Those free (rest stop) dump stations are just a courtesy...a place to dump and go. They were not ever meant to be a place to flush and clean tanks. Flushing and cleaning is for a payed for site or campground.

RE: TT Slide Outs

Mine (2 slides) have creaked and groaned for years, but have never has any problems. Possibly the squeaking you are hearing is from the rubber seals and the wiper rubbing against the slide wall as it moves.

RE: Roof Repair Project (Advice needed)

Welcome to the Forum... I'd also be concerned about what could be happening under that roof...Looks like it could easily have been leaking. If so, you could have problems between the roof and ceiling inside as well as in the walls.

RE: where to drill fridge?

Right next to drip tube This is what I did...but I have an inspection camera (very handy tool) (you can rent one at Home Depot cheap) that I snaked up behind the frig and the outside wall so that I could see what was what back there. Be very careful. If you drill into the coils your frig is toast. SLOWLY AND CAREFULLY use a very small bit first then stick a thin wire into the hole and you can sort of feel what is back there and if you have good clearance to proceed.

RE: Empty Hot Water Tank

You said a month or so....I'd drain it. 5 minute job.

Jeff Gordon and the Chase

Taking with my race buddies... Suppose the 24 doesn't win a race during the regular season.. Wondering if Nascar will find a way to tweak Jeff (retiring this year) into the Chase?

RE: Cracked front storage lid, is it fixable?

If possible take a picture. I know you said you can't up load pictures, but have you tried using this...it makes it really quick and easy..one step. RV Forums Photo Upload...HERE

RE: Question on determining campsite size?

My way is to give the total size including the tongue and back bumper and then add a foot.

RE: Oven cleaner in 5th wheel

Can't think of any reason why not....just make sure you have plenty of ventilation.

RE: OK, which one of you is this?

Did the truck have a pair of those classy bull (you know whats) hanging under the back bumper?
