RE: Oven will not light ,but pilot stays on

Humm, with what you have said I'm also thinking there may be carbon build up on the thermocouple. Or, it may not be positioned in the flame good enough. Make sure it is clean and directly in the flame. I'm not so sure about the carburetor cleaner thing though. Sounds flammable to me, plus it stinks. It is flammable, but evaporates very quickly. And works great for this problem. If that's what it is. It does sound like it. Not enough gas is getting through those little holes to ignite. With the little red straw, spray the holes well. As mentioned before, lay some rags under it to catch excess. Wipe it dry, and let it sit for about 5 or 10 minutes before trying to light. You can also take the assembly off to clean it.

RE: Caulk

We have a 3011 jayco greyhawk and are looking for recommendations for a caulk to use in the rv do not caulk around the Flux Capacitor! :) Good one. Wonder how many got it.

RE: Travel souveniers

I collect coffee mugs. Collect is not very accurate though. I use them a lot. And lose them a lot. I take them to work and people just kinda walk off with them. Or they get broke. But I don't mind. I just like always having some silly coffee mug. More silly looking the better. Kids do the pressed penny thing. I like it. Because they do

RE: x-tend a chock resilience...

Been thinking of getting the x chocks. Do they help stabilize it that much? Are they worth it? I'd still use my regular chocks to prevent rolling.

RE: Outside stereo

Guy didn't say anything about blaring his stereo. I use mine mostly when I'm boondocking by myself. At any rate, any stereo shop can fix it. Could be wiring if it's been as problematic as it sounds. If not wiring, they are really easy to do yourself

RE: Eggs left in refrigrator

I forgot to add to mine, put a bowl of white vinegar in the fridge after you scrub it down. When we lived through the Rim Fire a couple years ago, the entire house and it's contents smelled like smoke. It was bad. All our clothes and everything. We put a bowl of vinegar in each room. About two cups in each bowl. Changed out mid day, and by day two it was gone. Nothing smelled like smoke. You probably won't even need to change it out. One bowl full of vinegar left in that fridge overnight and I bet it's gone

RE: In the course of RVing...

Well, after you have the two selections posted above, add a nice steak grilled to medium rare with a pile of sauted onions, a fresh salad, and a cold beer....Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold or Conways Irish Ale! Follow that with fresh coffee and apple, blueberry, or any other great pie! I would agree, but......Why over cook a decent steak like that??? When I take a bite of my steak, I want to hear the cow scream in pain! :B

RE: Eggs left in refrigrator

The two solutions I've always used for similar issues are white distilled vinegar or peroxide. Dilute either with water to 50%. Should do the trick. Good luck

RE: Severe thunderstorms- do we need to lower the TV antenna?

I'm lucky, I don't have to worry about it. Mostly because a decent thunderstorm already ripped my antenna off. Wind gust speeds were reported in the 80mph range.

RE: Towing above 65

I am of the belief that with the PROPER equipment, and experience, that higher speeds are not any more of an accident waiting to happen than lower speeds. Is that why the DOT estimates that more than 1,115 lives would be saved by a max speed of Truckers to 68mph.The truckers for the most part have the right equipment and they have the experience and training along with the medical card to be on the road. So truckers kill at least 1,115 people driving 68+ and that was the cause of the accident? No wonder there are so many sue the trucking company ads on daytime tv. Wouldn't it be cheaper the set a speed limit for truckers or are they not really professionals that can police themselves?With your logic 30k people die in traffic accidents what kind of speed limits are you going to set for the rest of the motoring public? These are not my stats or proposal. The question is do you need big brother in your vehicle to save yourself because you are incompetent? Or is setting a speed limit adequate? My apologies, the one comment is from a different post suggesting using governors to set speed.I agree that I don't want more rules and regulations. I would be willing to bet that one day we won't have any control over it though. Personal freedom is slowly eroding and to the young people it will be the norm. Speed limits have zero to do with personal freedom. The rights of an individual being paramount to those of the masses is something I believe deeply in. However, none of us has any right to drive in an unsafe manner that endangers others. Since it's impossible to predict who is safe at certain speeds and who is not, limits (or standards) are set. It doesn't matter if we like the particular standard or not. We are free to stay off the roads if it bothers us that much. Personally, I follow the speed limits unless my set up requires I go slower. In certain circumstances this may mean I need to reevaluate if I'm safe on the road at all. Accepting the responsibility of operating several thousand pounds at high speeds means you have a duty to others to do so safely. Each one of us will have to decide if we can do this.Not once in my post did I say breaking the speedlimit. Some people can't drive safely at 55, does this mean everyone on the road be regulated to 55? You need to read the post we were talking about governors that limit speed regardless of the speedlimt, hence lack of freedom to drive the speedlimit because of a few that can't make prudent decision. Apologies. I obviously misread the posts leading up to that

RE: How many knots per hour does your TT get?

In the 60's, they rented flat pontoon boats on Lake Shasta (Northern California) that you backed your house trailer onto and then putted around the lake. Did that at Don Pedro too. Not allowed anymore, but it's only been about 20 years since they banned the practice.

RE: Towing with Overdrive Off

Need to remember the 97 didn't have tow/haul mode. These older Fords just had the OD button on the gear selector.

RE: I've learned my lesson!

I know this is going to sound strange...but what I do is put a pie tin of clean cat sand crystals in the fridge and freezer when winterizing. No mold, no odors. It works like the little pouches of moisture absorbers found in a box of new shoes. Not strange at all. Anything that absorbs moisture will work

RE: Minnie Winnies at the Sydney Caravan / Camping Show

I like the bright colors. I get kinda tired of trailers all looking the same

RE: Roof Question.. should I freak out?

The magnets in those speakers will stay cold for awhile. If the moisture is just on the insulation that touches the speakers, I wouldn't be concerned. If it's a larger area, it needs to be checked out. I was going to bring this up as well. When dense metal components get really cold, then get heated quickly in a humid environment, condensation occurs.

RE: how long do propane rubber hoses last?

My hoses are over 10 years old. If they're not cracked/dried out, I wouldn't worry about it.

RE: Spray foam for travel trailer ceiling and walls?

My opinion, if you're going to do all that prep work yourself, do the spray yourself. The biggest part of the job is the prep. That's what really goes into the cost. But I doubt a pro would just come in and spray very cheaply. He's still gonna want to make his money. You can rent the spray guns and air compressor at a hardware rental shop. Probably sell the medium as well, but if not, any big box hardware store will have it.

RE: Towing above 65

Interesting. Do most other states not have a separate speed limit for trailers? Most places here it's 55. Decent ticket if the CHiPies are of the mind.CA does a lot of things different than the rest of the nation. I avoid it like the plague. True. In this case, however, I happen to agree with the speed limit. Much more than 55 is silly when towing. I've towed out of state and didn't notice there weren't any signs postin a different speed limit. Was just curious.
