RE: Water Heater Thermostat Adhesive

If that is on the front (outside) of the tank, it should have a piece of foam insulation covering it and the ECO. There should also be a large washer (metal on older ones, clear plastic on newer) between the spring and metal tabs- the washer has a cutout on it to slip under the tabs while rotating. IOW- if everything is installed correctly, there shouldn't be a problem. Worst case- buy a new thermostat/eco assembly- under $20. Thanks Chris, I went to a local dealer and found a new assembly for $15.00. The plastic washers were missing on the original unit. Some one probably removed them and lost them. The spring will hold under the tabs if the circumference is expanded, but it will eventually work out as it happened.

Water Heater Thermostat Adhesive

I am working on my neighbors 2004 Fleetwood Discovery and the water heater thermostat has come loose. The thermostat is held against the tank by a surrounding circular spring which in turn is held by 3 metal tabs. The spring had come loose and did not always come in contact with the tank. I have got the thermostat, and spring holding it against the tank in position, but I believe it will eventually vibrate loose again. Is there a better solution to this problem? Is there an adhesive which will keep the spring from sliding out of the tabs and will hold up to vibration and heat?

Does anyone know of a campground that allows tent camping in the area?

Where did you get the 3 amp diode?

RE: Help-Water Tank Won't Drain

Told you it was something simple. I started up the coach and the vibration must have broken an air lock. I can't see where the outlet is, but it must be on the lower side of the tank. It seems to be very sensitive to having a level coach. The tank has an over flow which should provide venting either for the pump or the drain. Thanks for the help.

Help-Water Tank Won't Drain

I am getting ready to winterize and I have about 25 gallons left in my fresh water tank. It won't drain out or it won't pump out. The amount in the tank has been verified by visually looking at the tank. It is a 97 Monaco MH if that makes a difference. Never had this problem before. Maybe I overlooked something simple.

RE: San Diego To mi choices

West Texas is pretty darn boring no matter which way you go.

RE: Water pump not working

Look to see if water is filling your fresh water tank. Sounds like an open valve to me.

RE: Front Mount Receiver for 2015 3500HD

I went to a welding shop and they built a custom one for me for $100.00. Look in the yellow pages under hitches or welding.

RE: kwikee step issues

It could be that you had a short to ground (worn wire). When the brown wire is grounded either by short or by switching it to ground the step retracts.

RE: Need Honeymoon Destination help!

On our last camping trip we spent two month celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary and enjoyed almost as much as our first years camping. Spend the time enjoying each other. Enjoyment of sites and campgrounds will come naturally. Do not place stress on each other trying to get to "some exotic place". I would recommend Lake Catherine as it is a beautiful park and is close enough to Hot Springs for other things to do. I don't remember any steep hills going there. You can take route 7 as a side trip to see the fall foliage. Good luck in your future.

RE: Toilet Odors

Where are the overflow holes? Inside the bowl, near the top.

RE: east of Souix City on hwy 20 overnite

I would highly recommend Scenic Campground which is just off of 20. It is on the river and in South Sioux City (Nebraska side).

RE: WA RV parks for Oct, Nov?

There are quite a few not far. Alder Lake is a nice park, but have to pick your sites carefully. Silver Cove is a very nice park near Mt St Helens. If you head out to the Coast, Grayland State Park or Cape Disappointment state park are nice. If going North, Pioneer Trails near anacortes is great. All of those parks have full hookups (have to check state park site by site), are clean and well kept. We have reviews of all these on our blog in my sig. I highly recommend Cape Disappointment, especially the costal sites. Be aware in Washington, when they say "Campground" they are usually referring to sites for small rigs; whereas, they refer to "RV Parks" for the bigger rigs.

RE: Looking for recommendations for inspection camera

Be careful with some of these cheaper ones and even some of the more expensive ones. Some of them have a mirror image and they are very difficult to use.

Toilet Odors

We had a SeaLand toilet that was putting up quite a stink, if you know what I mean. My wife put everything she had heard of including Tang to cover up the odor, but nothing worked for any period of time. Then I accidentally read in the manual that the two overflow holes have a trap in them that can dry out. Voila, works fine now. Thought I would pass that along for fellow travelers who hate to read manuals.

I had a part of my exhaust brake break and block my exhaust manifold causing no turbo function.

RE: branson

My family and I have a cabin east of Clinton and drive that road about 5 times a year. It is very curvy and hilly between Clinton and Harrison, but it is scenic, the roads are smooth, and there are many passing lanes up the hills. From Little Rock to Clinton and from Harrison to Branson is all 4 lanes. I recommend stopping for breakfast or lunch at Ferguson's which is just north of Marshall. We have had no problems with a big motorhome pulling a toad through the north side of their lot. For a more adventuresome side trip drive down to Gilbert which is just east of Ferguson's. It has an RV campground and access to the Buffalo river. There is no off street parking except for the campground, but it is a sleepy little town off season and parking on the road is no problem. There is a WallMart in Conway, Clinton, and Harrison right on 65.
