RE: What does this burned furnace wire tell you?

Were you playing with some blue wires in the system?

RE: What should I do with my Travel Trailer? Student needs help!

Keep trailer. Leave it as is, fix only what needs to be fixed. Save the rest of your money. Sell for same money after graduation. This is what I would do.Good luck but please be aware of your health living there.

RE: Gas Prices in Canada for US travellers

Because of a high State fuel tax, we pay more in Washington State than many US states. Our local Safeway is around $1.80 and Costco about $1.73. It's only about 55 miles to the Canadian border from the Burlington Costco. We see scores of Canadian-registered cars in the parking lot, people loading many gallon cartons of milk then going to the Costco gas station. Unfortunately for some, Costco does not sell diesel. Those folks are coming from Vancouver area where gas prices are probably 30 to 40 percent more than most places in Canada. Think its a combinations of special transpo taxes and other stuff. Prices are close to 3 bucks a gallon US there. Most of Canada is down around 2 bucks a gallon US. Mostly BC has a CARBON tax.Just another tax grab.

RE: Canadian dollar

I have spoken to many that won't go down after this year and apparently many parks have lots of homes for sale by Canadians,especially in the Yuma area.The Canadian resource based economy has tanked and over 100,000 oil workers in Alberta lost their jobs.so not so much travel this year,many people not willing to pay the high medical insurance for travel,friend with a pace maker just got a quote for $8000.00 to spend 3 months in Yuma,not going,up for sale!!Vancouver Island is full no deals there unless you booked a year ago.Okanagan valley properties are booked several years down the road in Osoyoos.

RE: How to avoid the dreaded "boondocker's fingertips?"

As someone who grew up in the foothills of Alberta, where winters are fiercely windy, dry and cold, I'd suggest trying bag balm. Originally developed for cow udders, it's been a rancher -approved remedy for their dry cracked fingers forever. It is great for sure.

RE: Thoughts on how to patch roof leak with Eternabond

If it is at or very near the joint you may as well open the whole joint up to repair the leak.The roof wood plywood or what ever likely is the same joint so if you end up replacing wood you will need to get there also.Redo the whole joint.I sure hope you don't find a huge wet area all along the joint.

RE: Fuel cost to drive to Florida.

A little surprised more Canandian's haven't chimed in. From what I've seen, this time of year 85% of that country's inhabitants have fled for Florida or Arizona.Nope they are staying home by the hundreds and going to places in Canada as warm as possible.Try booking places in British Columbia,or Vancouver Island.The charters and snow bird trips to Spain and Portugal,even Cuba remain hot spots.It is all about the dollar and medical insurance costs.Mexico is still popular for rving but less so then other years.Many rv units are sitting home and not being used for the winter holidays.In our case age,and health has determined our winter.Vancouver Island rental on the sea shore golfing and fishing.

RE: Drained antifreeze after winterizing; ok or not okay?

No reason to leave the antifreeze in the lines. I live in the south and you probably know more about winterizing than I do. But I don't understand why you would put antifreeze into the system and then immediately drain it out. Aren't you going to need to flush the system next spring anyway. What is the advantage of draining the antifreeze now. Not trying to be a wise guy, just trying to understand. The reason you drain it out and leave it empty is to negate some of the taste of it in the lines especially if you have it in your fresh water tank all winter.There will be no water in the system to drip down as suggested,water was all displaced with anti freeze if done properly.And of course to drain the water heater you remove the drain plug and open the relief valve.The anode is actually part of the drain plug.Leave the drain open and all taps and showers so air replaces the anti freeze just like you did when draining the water out initially.Lay your shower head in the tub or shower so the hose also drains.Water only breaks things when it turns to ice and has no room to expand.

RE: NADA Pricing

Thanks for the advice. We just want to pay the going rate or less, we don't need to beat someone down to wring the last nickel out of a deal. It just seems the asking prices, selling prices, and NADA values are all over the place. And of course you can always use the old tried and tested method.Ask how much the seller wants,offer what you want to pay AND can afford to pay.If you like it buy it,don't worry about others as some one always bought it cheaper and put the seller into the poor house.And always have the opinion that you paid too much,it never fails.

RE: Oil pump removal. Help!

well, i'll take it for a drive and the oil pressure will stay at 10 while coasting then move to about 20 once I hit the gas. Eventually dropping to 0 later on during the drive with or without accelerating. It may move back up to 10-15 if I let it sit for 10 minutes. What grade of oil does it have in it?What grade should it have?

RE: One More Reason To Never Buy Jayco

The 110 and LP connections were made before the unit was slid in from the outside. The 110 line comes into the box via a 3/4" hole in the box. It was then screwed to the flange on the outside with about 20 screws. Sorry to disappoint all the haters of this post but I am smart enough to see that a totally enclosed plastic cargo bay does not allow access without either cutting a hole or removing the whole unit. The element and relay are in the rear of the heater. I cut about a 12"x12" hole to access it. The relay was bad. Not the connections or element. That sure sounds like a made for dealer service call at a huge cost to the owner.I don't think dealers would complain too much about that design.Glad you got it fixed and now have a service port.

RE: One More Reason To Never Buy Jayco

I got a 2012 Jayco Embark new. Their workmanship was horrendous. Requiring many weeks at the dealer, countless hours of my work and even a trip back to Jayco. Recently the electric portion of my water heater quit. When I went to check it I found that the water heater was installed in a totally sealed cargo bay. Brilliant engineering! I sent Jayco CS 2 emails politely asking the dimensions to cut a hole to access the element so nothing else would be damaged. No response. Never again. Where are your bypass valves located,what make and model of water heater is it?Do you access the element from the rear or the front? Again where do you find the by pass valves?Is the 110 volt element on the front or rear of the heater?How did the factory make the electrical 110 volt connection to the heater in an enclosed space.All electrical 110 volt connections or joints require an access point by any code I have ever read.Do have to take out some panel to access the heater?? I'll have to see this situation to understand it.We have a Jayco dealer near by and I am sure they have some knowledge of how to do this,may have one on the lot.How did you resolve this situation?
