Any propane grills equal to Weber Genesis E310

Hello, Although this grill is not for use on my RV (I have the Weber Baby Q 100 for that) I need help in finding the right propane grill to replace my rotted out falling apart home grill. I currently have a Char Broil Commercial Infrared gas grill. I will not purchase another. The igniter stopped after 1 year and the so called stainless is rusted out so bad that the grates are ready to fall completely out. So I am in the market for a new grill. I really like the look and feel of the Weber Genesis E310 but at $699 it is on the high side. I was wondering if anybody knew of a comparable brand that might not cost quite as much or should I just bite the bullet and get the Weber? Your thoughts are appreciated Thanks! Dave

RE: Things to do - Myrtle Beach

A reasonable drive to Charleston to see the aircraft carrier and submarine were enjoyable. A longer drive to Wilmington to see the USS North Carolina is good as well.

RE: Delamination on slideout

I would use the West Marine system epoxy. If trying it again. It sounds as if you did this before. What method did you use? I was hoping to just drill a few small holes and inject the epoxy in if possible. The area is only about 1 square foot. I reviewed the West Marine Website and could not find an epoxy that had any type of injector method Any help locating a quality epoxy with an injection method would be appreciated. Thanks! Dave

RE: Delamination on slideout

OP here, First thanks for the information! I read the article and this approach seems like something I can try to at least keep the problem from spreading. My question is what brand of epoxy to buy and where? Thanks again! Dave

Delamination on slideout

I had my 5th wheel in for work at the local RV Service center for A/C issues. That was handled as expected by the RV Tech who owns the shop pointed out that my slide out had started to delaminate. I asked him what could be done and his response was pretty much nothing. The only fix would be to completely remove the entire panel and put it back on with new adhesive. He said the chance of getting the panel off intact were not good so a new panel probably would be required. When I asked how much he said more than I would probably want to spend. He is looking in to the cost of the panel and will let me know. The area involved is just about 1 square feet currently. There are no signs of water intrusion that he could find. All joints and seams are well sealed. My questions are should I consider replacing this entire panel? The slide contains the couch and dinette for a size reference. Is there anything else that can be done that does not involve this extensive of work? Thanks! Dave

RE: Rubber Roof Treatment Recommendations

After 10 years applying Liquid Rubber can make them white again and add a few mil of new EPDM rubber. It is not easy or cheap but it can be done in the driveway. Is is also sold as Liquid Roof through the RV supply channel but the mark up is a bit more. OP here My roof is still in pretty good shape so I don't need to go to this extreme. I have not treated my roof but I do keep it clean. I am looking to keep from having issues like this down the road by performing preventive maintenance.

RE: Getting on the roof ?

Before I took sick I weighed in around 240 and my two daughters combined weight is probably 275 or so. All three of us have been up on my roof at the same time with no issue. Not knowing the overall condition of your RV I would pay attention for any soft spots just in case there is some unseen rot developing. I will be bringing my 5th wheel home today to clean and winterize it for the season as we are not able to go out any more this year. Part of that is to get up and inspect, clean, and treat the roof.

Rubber Roof Treatment Recommendations

I am looking for recommendations on a Rubber Roof Treatment. I have searched the forums and the discussions all seem centered around to treat or not to treat. I am looking for specific brand advise. I will bringing RV home later this morning and my plans are to clean it up including roof and to winterize it for the season as we will not be able to go out at all the remainder of the year. Thanks!

RE: First Time Awesome-Gas Grill?

weber Q100 http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41juuGovHzL._SX355_.jpg even heat. easy to clean. I store in my trailer with no cover. the grease stays inside the grill or runs into the easy to clean drip pan. Plus DW thinks it's "cute". Ed X 2 Got mine at Sears at end of season and saved a ton. Also picked up their cart that it attaches too Great system!

RE: Somewhat scared and concerned

OP here, I have an appointment with the doctor made. I have started discussing the situation with my wife and oldest daughter who is a registered nurse. They have both had a calming effect on me. I want to thank all of you for your advice, thoughts and prayers. It is also comforting to know that there are total strangers out there who care about others and wish them the best. Thank you all!

RE: Air conditioner replacement

OP here, Heard back from my RV Service tech yesterday. All my AC needs is a new motor. He has ordered one from Dometic and is waiting on them. Total for the repair is around $200 to $250. That's a lot cheaper than replacing the entire unit! He said there is no reason the unit should not last another 10 years or so.

RE: Best route from Ocala, Florida to Scranton, PA

Make sure you time the your arrival at the I-77 & I81 junction. Friday, Saturday and Sunday it backs up northbound for hours in the afternoon. If you come through M-Thur its fine

RE: 5th wheel jack

I use the Trailer Aid jack. You place it in front or back of the good tire and pull or back it up onto jack. Very simple and safe. I know it works because I have changed all four of my tires using it when the tires needed replaced. Here is a link on the CW website. Before buying Google it and buy at the best price. Trailer Aid

Somewhat scared and concerned

I had 5 vessel open heart done last year at the end of October. I was under a great deal of stress having lost my job of 30+ years and no real prospects were available. I recovered ok took longer than I thought it would and started working as an independent consultant in information systems in June. Needless to say my wife was a trooper worked full time got us health insurance and kept our heads barely above water financially. What it very troubling now is that my legs are weak and I can't walk long or fast any significant distance. I do not get short of breath but just feel like my legs are all done in. Yesterday while this happened I felt some very very minor chest discomfort but it did not feel anything like my chest pain from the 3 previous heart attacks. It also did not last but a few seconds. I am trying to get on as a regular employee at this company and I've been told that if you call off as a consultant they will not hire you. I really need to keep this job and I know if I go the doctor I will be admitted for observation at a minimum. I don't want to do anything to jeopardize my life either. I can't discuss this with my wife right now as this would push her over the edge. As much as I have been through physically she has had to suffer mentality. I took to this forum to 1 vent and 2 hopefully get reassurance and guidance that will make my future decisions more thought out and easier. Thanks for taking the time to read and hear me out.

RE: Getting ready to use Dutch Oven for first time

Thanks to everyone for their responses. I will plan on seasoning it before I use it. I do have a timed oven so the idea to do it a bedtime is a good one. Thanks again!

RE: Tailgate on truck will not latch

OP here, Thanks for all of the responses. I will try spraying the mechanisms tonight when I get home from work. If that fails I did find a utube video showing how to replace the clips at the handle location. I will keep you posted. Thanks!

RE: Tailgate on truck will not latch

Possibly just rusted or something. Take the cover off the back of tailgate and check it out for function. Did u do anything previously to affect it or just happened? The tailgate has a spray on liner and there are only three large bolts directly behind the handle. Not real sure how to take it apart. No I didn't do anything. The truck has been sitting because I got a new job that requires me to drive 65 miles round trip into downtown Pittsburgh. I didn't want to beat the truck up with those miles plus gas and trying to park it in the garages was a pain. I bought a Tracker and drive that. I had to tow my 5th wheel into the shop yesterday and ended up removing the tailgate so I could hookup and tow.

Getting ready to use Dutch Oven for first time

We purchased a Lodge Dutch Oven brand new factory seasoned. My question is do I need to season it again before I use it or is the factory seasoning good to go? The hard part is to determine which recipe to use because there are so many good ones out there!

Tailgate on truck will not latch

I have a Chevy 2500HD Silverado. The tailgate handle barely moves and the tailgate will not latch. The latches are in the proper position to "snap" around the posts on the side of the truck but they don't. Anyone else ever have this issue and how did you correct it? Can the handle / latch mechanism be replaced? I looked and it does not seem that you can get at the parts. Thanks! Dave

RE: Refrigerator smell

I have placed charcoal in mine after I neglected to prop door open before storing. It absorbs oder pretty well. A large bag of the natural charlcoal at Lowes is pretty cheap. When I took it out I put it back into bag and used it at next campfire!
