RE: Removing Caulking

I was thinking about re-doing all of the caulking on my MH in the spring (if it ever gets here). Anyone out here know of a good way to remove the old stuff without ruining the camper? I have done this quite often. This tool works really well although it doesn't last long. Will not damage your rig but don't use it on the rubber roof. http://i92.photobucket.com/albums/l10/heritage93/caulk%20removal_zpsp7abxivd.jpg x2

Surely we could make a country western song out of this one? :h woossa-wossas It sounds like whatever it is it is sposed to be good for you. For that we would need some trucks, trains, mama, prison and getting drunk. Now, if he was drunk while going to pick up mama from prison and the RV got hit by a train transporting trucks, we might have something.

RE: New propane tanks

On their web site http://www.vikingcylinders.com/support/faq/, they say the tanks have a 15 year service life and it must be re-qualified every 5 years. Not saying that the above is a bad thing, but need to keep that in mind.

RE: Truck Camper Attic - how much do you use?

A couple of bungee cords and you can store a few small rude children up there. (wait...did I say that out loud?)

RE: 2014 RAM 2500 fuse problem, and other models?

I am curious what the difference is between the fuse in the 2011 and the 2014 is. I had to replace mine two months ago. I have no idea when it blew. I do not need power out of the 7 pin to operate the marker lights on the camper (or the 5th wheel that came before it) I only discovered the problem when I connected my 2015 Wranger Toad for the first time and the lights would not work. (The wiring harness on my toad hooks to the bus on the Jeep and requires power to work) DW took the failed fuse down to the local AutoZone and came back with two new ones. The only thing the shocked me was they were several dollars each.

RE: So what did you do to your Truck Camper today?

I received my new emergency hatch lid in a beat up cardboard box today. Complete with large footprint in the middle of the box. I lucked out. They stepped on the concave side of the hatch so it did not break. I will replace my current cracked and leaking hatch with my new lucky hatch.

RE: Sewer Hose Supports

Sewer hose supports at the campsite help to protect the hose from rocks, goat heads, and other things that might puncture it. .... Never been at a campground that has goats wandering around, but I do have a place I go to on a regular basis that has turkeys and chickens. I use support to angle the hose toward the sewer hookup. I don't want it laying on the ground and having a rise at the end. STUFF flows DOWN hill. It does NOT flow UP very well. I like it to have a smooth unobstructed entry into the sewer pipe. What do you do when they put the hookup above the output of your camper? No, this is not a joke, Same place w/ the chickens and turkeys above. Unfortunately I get stuck in that spot occasionally. You should see the poor guys with the travel trailers with the tanks a foot above the ground trying to dump.

RE: Verizon Wireless Customers

When I replaced my phone three months ago, I went into the Verizon store and said (very nicely) "I need more data, but I am not going to pay any more", they doubled my data plan.

RE: Pet's travel with you in a Truck camper

My dog does not have a credit card so I bring my dog with me and leave my DW in the camper with the fantastic fan on. So far, everyone has been understanding. We Have A Winner!

RE: Overall Height ???

I am just under 12 foot, but I need at least another foot clearance to unload. (need to measure that one day!!!) Make sure you keep in mind you get taller while you are unloading!

RE: Pet's travel with you in a Truck camper

During the "hot" season, we minimized our time when the furballs were left alone in the camper, unless we were camping with some other people who could take action if needed (i.e. power loss so the a/c would stop, etc). When in doubt, one of us would go to the store, the other stay w/ the furcampers. I had been looking around for a product that could alert me in the event that temperatures got to high in the camper. I had not found any....yet.

Goodbye Rocky!

http://www.beaglenews.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/5-300x214.jpg 10 1/2 years of bird hunting and camping. A faithful companion. And a lap dog (at least he thought he was) We got him when he was 18 months old. He was the sole survivor of his litter due to parvo. Always wanted to be right with you, be it next to you on the couch, in the field pointing at birds or just following you out and around the campsite. Rocky had hip problems since he was born - he always had a funky gait. The hip problems and arthritis caught up with him last week and we had to let him go Monday, as we could not leave him in the pain he was in. He joins his camping buddies Clair and Annie at the rainbow bridge http://www.beaglenews.com/oldsite/Christmas_2009/2323232327Ffp53276nu3237945898WSNRCG3296367327nu0mrj.jpg Annie, Rocky and Claire

I'm confused. I just came back from several weeks of laughing and happiness. Where is this BS you are referring to?
