RE: TV recepytiom

which antenna are you using, and older style batwing? I upgraded to a Jack Antenna... what a difference!

RE: Propane Quick Connector hose to BBQ

Camco makes a series of hoses, with the quick disconnects.. but what I can tell you is there are small differences between manufacturers... Mr. Heater also makes disconnects, and I can tell you from experience, while they look similar, they are not compatible.. Stick with one brand, and you'll be ok...

RE: Propane plumbing - adding cat heater

I added CAT heater by putting a black pipe fitting to flare 3/8" copper tubing. Tubing run unto interior compartment, where I put a gas rated ball valve with flare connection. Rubber hose to propane quick disconnects from there. This is what I'm trying to figure out - what parts should I get. For now, only talking about above the floor part. So there is a bare end of 3/8 OD copper pipe sticking out of the floor inside, in the "interior compartment" - under dinette bench. The heater is about 2ft away. What parts do I need to get from the bare copper pipe to 3/8" flare of the heater? Rubber hose inside is not safe - technically, but still an option if nothing else will do, and it is easy. A piece of 3/8" copper sounds better for this purpose - more difficult, yes. Go copper all the way... I did rubber with disconnects since my heater is portable and I like to put it away.

RE: Need advice

for starters, 12 gauge wire is rated for 20A.. That being said, if you watch what you're consuming and keep it under 20A, you'll be fine.. The minute you crank on an AC unit, you're risking burning up that extension cord. Why not invest in a 10 gauge extension to make your life a bit more peaceful?

RE: How cold is too cold

As long as you're running the heat at night and your underbelly is covered, you'll be fine, the cabin heat will keep the entire trailer above freezing... As another poster mentioned, if you have a city water connection, you may want to disconnect it over night, or turn it off..

RE: Star Tron opinions?

Sta-bil is only a preservative, it won't clean dirty carbs etc.. Also look at SeaFoam.. good reputation with Gas engines..

RE: Michelin LT tire recalled

small RV trailers with a 16" tire?.. I think you meant to say small class B/C RVs..

RE: Single waste tank for an RV

I've watered many trees with Gray waste in many campgrounds. Us too. Back in the sixties and seventies many RVs only had a black tank. The gray tank consisted of a hose into the bushes. The only time I won't do this is when we're in bear country.. But generally, I see no reason not to dump gray water on trees and whatever..

RE: Gas grill.

As far as replacements go, I can recommend the Olympian (Camco) 5000 series stainless.. I've used it about a dozen times so far... no complaints..

RE: Boondocking using HEATING PAD

For starters, your batteries are not true deep cycle.. they're hybrid marine cranking batteries..

RE: store bought GPS

How about an ipad with GPS and use the Allstays RV park and campground app? That's what I use.

RE: Home made macerator

For what it's worth, I sourced a 1" ID hose and run it 100' with the standard Macerating pump available out there.. no issues.. not saying this is the cheapest way, but it's what I do..

RE: Television Antenna Leak

I replaced my winegard with a unit with less problems and builtin signal finder to boot! Don't have to worry about putting it down or up either! Jack Antenna

RE: How long do we want batteries to last ?

It's a well known fact that here in the hot Desert of Arizona, we can't get flooded wet cell batteries to last as long as more moderate climates. I just got about 4 years out of my Costco golf cart batteries. Normal Car batteries can be relied upon to last about 2 years and die suddenly with no warning. The heat is killer on them and I don't care how much you spend, they'll die early.. That's why I never over spend on boutique brand batteries because nobody gets any life out of them.

RE: How to clean wheel bearings??

And for heaven's sake, whatever you do, DO NOT use gasoline.. you'll die.. :) P.S. I use gasoline, and always in a well ventilated area (outside)

RE: Eternabond job is in my future now where do I buy the stuff?

Well, you'all have convinced me. I now know there will be a sizeable amount of Eternabonding in my not too distant future. Sounds like the way, if I plan to keep this trailer for a long time (and I do). No more dicor. Now, where is the best place to buy the stuff? Probably be needing 2 and 4 inch rolls. Best prices, good selection, etc? Before you go taping everything shut up there, consider the possibility of replacing roof vents, or any roof fixture (as I have done many times). Dicor self leveling sealant is a ton easier to remove than that tape is.. That tape is fine for seams or repairing permanent problems.. just my $0.02
