RE: Screw pulled out of wall.... best fix??

I am in doubt about a tooth pick broken off in a panel that is soft luan and usually 1/8 " thick,also doubts about screw anchors not spinning in hole,toggles need a large hole to put the toggles through.Be careful,glue the piece onto the wall can and will lead to pulling off the wall paper as that is what it will be glued to.Be very careful,been there done that.

RE: Vehicle trade in

I go to a dealer that knows my vehicles,I tell him several units that interest me and have coffee then leave.What he does next is find a buyer for my trade,and he works with several different make dealers to see what they would pay or if they are interested.Also checks the auto auctions for dealers in the two closest provinces.He then gives me a yodel to come for coffee and we go over each vehicle I want to look at and resale projections in several years.Usually we are done in an hour and I never finance.I buy what I can pay for,haven't bought new for years to avoid high depreciation and taxes.Works for me.Not brand loyal either as they all make good vehicles,except I was a Cummins man after a new 1999 Ford diesel,traded it even up for a 1997 Dodge Cummins after 2 years.

RE: Screw pulled out of wall.... best fix??

A Molly anchor will work,just be very sure you get the correct size that will collapse down to the wall board thickness.The top one shown looks like it would work.

RE: Canada Geese doing damage during our snowbirding down south

Are You sure that they are really Canada Geese? There are some pretenders out there that look like Canadians but never actually leave the USA! I think they call them Lessor Canadians! They tend to hang out at Walmart and Costco! And Yuma potlucks.

RE: Canada Geese doing damage during our snowbirding down south

We have trouble with coots on the river in our AZ place. A couple of folks use to feed them. Think they were tired of the coot poop and quit. If you keep running them off the seem to learn and will mostly stay away. Yup, never feed the old coots or they will hang around forever, they drink your beer too. :B Especially those old grey Canadian coots.lol

RE: Anybody use " RV Warranty Forever" service?

We were motorhome shopping all summer, then decided we wanted a Jayco Greyhawk and chose the 31FK model. Our local Jayco dealer covers all new RVs with this warranty. It wasn't something we added on nor was there a line item in the purchase contract for it. Granted the cost is rolled into the RV purchase price. But we wanted a Greyhawk and the local (10 miles from us) Jayco dealer had a 31FK in stock. I was certainly not going to go into the next state to buy an RV when the local guy had what we wanted. I will go along with the annual inspection for a while and see how it works and what it costs. If the cost becomes prohibitive, I can always just stop it. We tend to keep our vehicles for a very long time. If this lifetime warranty is on the level, we may be some of the few RV owners who will make them wish we'd sell the darned thing. :-) Well you might as well sell me your tools because you won't be adjusting or fixing anything.You just bought the rights to have a dealer control your RV life.

RE: Rving travel and sales likely to rise this fall

It is a sad world when we base our purchases on a very temporary downwards trend in oil prices.Car payments last for 6 years and Rv payments for 10,just like spending thousands of dollars on another vehicle to get 3 mpg more.JMHO.There will not be any stability until America,Canada and Mexico deal jointly on the North American supply and sharing of North American oil reserves,and not relying on off shore political deals.The lower the price per barrel of oil the less taxes collected and we all know we will have to make that up with other taxes.

RE: Safety Issue Chevy Pickups

The trick is first crank it up hard until it clicks then crank down.I had one of theses beasts too and learned the hard way.Replaced it with an aftermarket that worked great. I would love to mount the spare back under the truck rather then it using up space in the back of the truck. Where did you get your aftermarket unit? Do you like it? That was several years ago and don't remember,other then it was from the USA and by time I got it and paid duty or what have you it was around $150.00.I tried the wreckers but those were shot too.Spent a lot of time on goggle as I think about it.Aren't the new trucks better maybe they will fit,just hooks on and one bolt to hold it.

RE: Violent front end shaking

Just an educated guess, but if it is a P30/32 chassis, has the air bag pressures and ride hight been checked? Plus over extended shocks.

RE: Pre Purchase Advice

I would assume everything is in need of work and make sure I can afford that before I even started negotiating.I would have a leak test and pay for a visit to a truck dealer and tire dealer for estimates prior.If the dealer doesn't like that he should like your back side view even less.Remember you are not looking at a simple machine that unit can cost you thousands of $ to get on the road and maintain.If it is a good one,perfect they are very nice.

RE: New RV problems

That would seriously p*ss me off and I'd want it fixed pronto. Maybe it's driven more by Thor Industries (parent company) policies? KZ was purchased by Thor earlier this year and this is the sort of thing that KZ owners and even dealers are worried about happening. KZ would have fixed that under warranty before it was sold, but who knows in the future now? I'm not so sure you'd have to install a new tank. Since the tanks are made from ABS, seems to me you might be able to relocate the entry into the tank along with some cutting and patching of the floor. If you can't keep the existing tank, a new tank would be in the $200-300 range. That is, if you can do the work yourself. You'd also need to re&re the underbelly material (which I see Keystone says is ABS). Maybe a few lawsuits are needed to get manufacturers to smarten up. RVs are purchased from a dealer and if it were me, I'd sue them because you have a contract for sale/purchase with them, not the manufacturer. What I would do is go to 2 - 3 independent RV repair shops and get a report and estimate to fix it as evidence, even if you have to pay a few $$ for an inspection and report. Then send copies to both the dealer and manufacturer saying that you will get the work done and seek to recover the costs from them. At the very least, I would make sure you send a complaint in writing to the dealer (if you haven't already) so that they can't say they never heard about it. I would also try and find the right person at Keystone to send a report to - someone who is empowered to make decisions. It's hard to imagine a manufacturer wanting this kind of negative publicity being spread around. I am still laughing,your tongue must really be stuck in your cheek a long way.
