how to clean gray/black spots from roof?

I have a '02 Newmar with a rubber (Brite tec ) roof. I have been parked for a couple of months in a wooded cg, resulting in gray/black spots staining the roof. I have used spic and span in the past for general cleaning, but it's not effective for these extensive stains. I think I've read or heard that soft scrub with bleach can be used? If not, what product can be used on these mold stains? Thanks

RE: Stupid question about filling tires

Hi ladies. I'm a solo female fulltimer. Yup, tires can be a bit intimidating - but you can handle it - here's what I do: I have a tire pressure gauge that goes to a higher psi than a typical car one - easily found at any auto parts store. Always check your tire psi when they are cold (not directly after driving). To determine how much psi is required for your particular mh - that's another story - all based on tire/size/mh weight. most tire brands have a psi chart on their websites. Once you know what psi your tires need, and you check their psi with your handy dandy tire gauge - you might now need to add some air. I have a compressor that will go to 150psi - a compact unit I purchased from Sears. I had a poor experience with a previous Cable-Porter unit - but so far so good with the Craftsman.

RE: Anyone take adv of Brake Buddy old for new discount?

Op. The breakaway is different. They sent the entire assembly with the unit. In addition to the differences noted,you can change sensitivity and braking mode right from the remote sensor. Another difference is the not having to depress test button 5 times, happens automatically and when unplugging the unit dumps the air. These things in my old classic were on the owner to do.

RE: Need Qick Advice for Hershey Show Please

Check out Leisure Unity. Great little rv - with creative use of interior space. Friends have the murphy bed model - very cool. The Leisure website has video - must see

RE: Anyone take adv of Brake Buddy old for new discount?

OP back. My new Brake Buddy Vantage arrived, they sent it as soon as I provided the tracking # for my bb classic that I sent back to them. The cost for the new unit was $650, just as they quoted. I am glad to get the 3 yr warranty with the new unit. It has some new features, compared to my old bb. Overall, I am very pleased with the entire process; cost, quick shipping, and new/better technology. I was a bit worried, you know "if it sounds too good to be true....." - but everything was handled as quoted - no unpleasant surprises.

Anyone take adv of Brake Buddy old for new discount?

Hi, My brake buddy has bit the dust. RV tec (brake buddy authorized) checked it out, and I need a new circuit board. BB will not sell the part, even to the rv center. I spoke to cs at bb, he said that the part is about $200, evaluation/repair will put cost well over $300. I will need to send my bb to them. CS said they generally recommend replacement of unit, particularly one that's over 7 yrs old.They will replace (keep) my bb in exchange for a new Vantage unit (mine is a Classic, '06) for $650. The Vantage on bb website is about $1400+ - plus will have a 3 yr warranty. OK, sounds good - we are fulltimers, satisfied with bb over the past 7 yrs - we are not looking for a different braking system (tow 2500 lb Fit). Is there something in this deal we're not seeing? Seems to be very good. Anyone do this? Satisfied? UPDATE 9/9 post thanks, Happy Labor Day

RE: East Coast Suggestions?

MAINE!!!! Get to Acadia - you cannot go wrong. There are several cg's that are on the water - or at least a water view - Bar Harbor CG, BAr Harbor KOA (very $$$), Narrows Too - to name a few. So much to do, and just a few lobsters to be consumed :)

RE: Alternative Resources changing name

Understand they are expanding - good for them. Change of address not good. A bit of a hassle, for sure. can't say I'm happy about that. Thanks for the FMCA tip, didn't know that - and I am a member. I will be contacting AR/DP to get my discount.

RE: Coastal Southern Maine or New Hamphire Campgrounds

We enjoyed our stay near Belfast, ME at The Moorings. It might be further north, but it is right on the water (no sewer - but dump station and a free pump out if you stay 1 week). Small cg, most sites have view - something to consider. We have used Wild Ducks and The Bluffs - all good options. If you wait for fall colors - consider visiting Acadia NP - well worth a visit anytime

RE: looking for a motorhome for primary residence

Will you have hookups during the winter season? If not, that opens up a whole 'nother can of worms. Battery drain!!! You will need a good generator to recharge the batteries or solar power. If you have electric that makes winter living a little easier. You will need access to propane - either move the coach to a fill station or add an "extend a stay" and use 100 lb aux tanks that the lp service truck comes to you. You will need to find a way to keep the tanks and plumbing from freezing. Some rv's have heated wet bays (not sure about the models your looking at). Otherwise some folks use a work style trouble light in the wet bay, and keep the interior cabinet doors open so the furnace heat warms the plumbing pipes. There is a lot to consider living in a rv in cold weather. It can be done, but lots of planning and preparation

RE: Laundry and the full timer

I am a solo fulltimer - 6+ yrs. I have the Splendide w/d - and love it. It has worked flawlessly (knock on wood). I do generally camp with full hookups - dry camping with an onboard w/d may not be worth it. If you think you'll be boondocking extensively, that should factor into your decision about a w/d.

RE: Insurance Rate Doubled after Accident--Help!!

OP. I am curious about the "5 points" - is your insurance co referring to DMV points or their in-house point system? 5 pts seems high for such a minor accident. Maybe there has been a clerical error

Brake Buddy making buzzing sound

I have a 7 yr old Brake Buddy Classic. I am a fulltimer, that let's the "wheels roll", I'm not a long term sitter around, so this bb has been well used. I had the compressor replaced 2 yrs ago. The bb is working, but now makes a slight buzzing sound, never heard it before. Any ideas? thanks

RE: toad is dead

I tow a 2012 Honda Fit - auto - blue ox setup. love it. As another poster mentioned, the 2015 auto is NOT towable. Look for a used Fit, great toad option.

RE: Broken plastic Atwood hot water heater drain plug

OP, I've "been there, done that". I am not a DIY'er but with a suggestion from this forum, I got the plastic plug out. Go to HD or Lowe's. Go to the lawn sprinkler area and get a device called "nipple extractor" (yes, no lie that's the name on the package). Cost is under $10 - looks like a "T" , 2 size ends - it took some muscle (maybe because I'm a girl) but the snapped off plug came out. I don't leave home without that crazy little tool!!!

RE: Cell phone reception database?

I often check with the Verizon coverage map - you can put in the cg address. I don't know if other providers have a similar feature. I also ask the cg staff at the time of making a reservation. I find in some national/state parks there is sporadic coverage, but often not everywhere.
