RE: Bathtub is clogged. Kitchen sink backs into tub.

That is one way to tell that you need to dump the gray water tank, when the water backs into the shower pan. Idiot lights for gauges are not reliable and most do not work anyway, specially the cheap ones in C class RV's, mine quit about the 3rd month and I have not used them since 2002, grey water backing into tub, time to dump grey. Black water showing in toilet tube time to dump black tank, in any case my wife can hear the noise change when the black needs dumping, she is one hell of a sensor. navegator

RE: CB Radio & Antenna Installation Suggestions

I have the antenna mounted on an L bracket from Radio Shack and ran the wire through an antnna fitting for boats,the ones that go through the cabbin roof to the sailboat wood mast,they are really, really water fproof. Mine is mounted on the Port (left) side in the cabinet with the hole for the antenna as close to the roof as possible, just aft of the overhead window this gives me the perfect height for the 90 degree turn out side to the L braket where the antnna is mounted. Good reception for my need, I get about two and half miles on flat land reception, less for transsmition. navegator

RE: SAFEST way to get on roof...OEM ladder or extension ladder?

I use the seven foot step ladder tied on the RV ladder to get past the bumper and only have two rungs to deal with, this saves me having to hang like a monkey trying to reach the ground on the way down and it also allows me to carry items on the bigger steps to a point where I can place them on the roof with out doing a balancing act. navegator

RE: Screw Sucked Into Head of Generator

Following the KISS principle, what and who worked on the generator last. There is no way that a screw is going past the air filter unless the air filter was off while the generator was running, then the person doing this lost a screw and was succked into the unit. If the generator was running OK prior to this incident, then there is a mistdry to be solved, who done it. navegator

RE: Woman and Tattoos

There are tatoos that are impressive works of art, then you have the regular ones, all of these are of course done with colored inks and then: There are the ones that let you know how long the dude has been incarcerated or paroled, the amount of discoloration of the "black" ink, Law Enfoememt Officers love tatoos one can spot trouble makers at a glance, and even what gang they are affiliated with. I do not have any and I do not mind others having them, I belive it is every ones right to do as they please, a lot of cultures have tatoos and some very old mummies have tatoos, the ice man found in a glacier in the Alps has some. navegator

RE: Black tank problem

If the rod came out off the gate, some are threaded and over time they turn until the screw part of the rod comes off, if that is the case push the handle in and turn clockwise until it feels tight, do not over do it or you will split the plastic. Good luck navegator

RE: What do you leave in RV

We have a complete set of dishes, kitchen utensils, light aluminum pans made by Tefal, acrilic gass ware, linens and winter and summer clothes, canned goods for about two weeks, we only add perishables along the way, we like to take off at a moments notice, over the years we have added a lot of convinient items, wine bottle ooppener, can oppener, small blender, toster oven small, we even have a four rack wine sellar in the cupboard, 19" color tv 120v/12v and a dvd/cd player, we normally go to places were there is no radio or tv reception. We found out that taking out and bringing back to the C kitchen, linen, clothes, and food took up to much time and we always forgot sometning that had to purchased on the way, so we gathered all the items needed at home and then transfered them permanentlly to the C, saves time and agravation. navegator

RE: I found err proof way to break down camp area to travel

I have manual jacks, so I place the crank on the steering wheel, and to remind me of the TV antenna I have a red remove before flight pendant that is clipped to the visor, then I unhook water, sewer, electric and do awalk arround checking all comparments, then another walk arround cheking that the windows closed, awning properlly stower and then check visually under the truck for any thing down there. I do the same inside with all the cabinet doors, roof vents and anything that needs securing, then I fire the engine and check lights, all of them after this we pull out to a new adventure. navegator

RE: My "new" $2000 RV

If it is carburated, step on the accelerator a coulpe of times and hold the acceleartor down while cranking, this should light it relativelly fast. If it is fuel injected do step on the gas pedal wnile cranking, the accelerator sensor will send the wrong signal to the computer, it will not start. navegator

RE: When to replace old class C tires?

Six years from the date of manufacture, not when they where replaced, some tires at some tire dealers have been stored for years. The manufacturing date is found on the side wall two numbers all by themself, the first 2 numbers are the week and the last are the year. 0814 as an example indicates the eighth week of the year and the fourteen is 2014, I replaced all 7 tires on mine and they were looking like brand new but they were 6 1/2years from manufacturing, be safe on the road, do not gamble with your life and loved onrs, or totally inocent persons trying to save money, it is not woth it. navegator

RE: Insulation and exterior condensation

I always knew that as morning dew, cars, patio furniture, even the grass and cement side walks would have moisture. That has nothing to do with the insulation, it has to do with what side does the moisture laden breeze comes from and the temperature difference from the insulation to the metal frame. The metal frame shows where it is, if you need to install somethig or drill a hole, you can mark where these are to either avoid or use them. navegator

RE: How do you protect your surge suppressor

Place it in a bag and hang it in such a way that both cables are coming out of the bag going down so that no water gets in the bag. I am assuming you have a portable one the you plug at the pedestal. navegator

RE: Battery - Learned something new

Refrigerator, water heater, cabin heater, some of the sensors Co2, and propane. The refrigerator needs 12v for the electronic control board to switch from 110v A/C to propane and viceversa, the hot water heater uses 12v also for the control board and the igniter and the valves, even when hooked to 110 v if the battery is old, has an internal short or low in water it will not have enough voltage to operate electronic boards. navegator

RE: Fantastic Breeze 12V Box Fan Clean-Up

Remove the four screws that hold the fan, they are on the top, need to get on the roof, that way you can clean the blades a lot easier, when the fan is out and to the side clean the enclosure and you might want to remove the square piece on the bottom of the fan housing four scews again, this allaws you to clean inside the actual fan housing, you will be surpriced how much lint can accumulate in there. navegator
