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: 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?

RE: Gas oven goes out while in use

If the pilot lights and holds normally (mine is hard to light) Let it burn for 2 or 3 minutes and check it again, if it's still burning your options are: I have found it is easier to light the oven off by lighting the pilot, setting a timer for 2 minutes, then setting the temperature. Cranking up the temperature before the 2 minutes, the pilot will usualy go out. Bad control valve (Thermostat) it contains a safety device that senses the flame of the pilot. You may have something here...the temperature control is horid. The way I have learned to use this oven is to always crank it up to 450, no matter what. I did put a thermometer in the oven one time and tracked the temperature and it swings +/- 150 degrees. Setting the temp at 450 it averages around 325. (Every time I make Cheesecake) but I do use it from time to time, Last was 12/17,, Took the cheesecake to the Pot Luck on the 18th (Glad I decided to do that, things happened on the 18th and I was pressed for time, Unlike so many things you can make in advance, Cheesecake MUST be made in advance, so all I had to do was take it out of the fridge and go). mmmmm.....cheesecake! This may not be your issue, but I found that if I pull the oven door open too fast the rush of air will blow out the pilot. Since it happens rarely could that be your problem? Doubtful, as twice I was baking up some biscuits, got things in the oven and did not open the oven until 24 minutes were up (the normal time that has worked in the past to get them golden brown) and they were only half baked and the pilot was out.

RE: Gas oven goes out while in use

May have found the problem. I pulled both propane bottles and when I removed the second one, there was two teaspoons of what appeared to be a light oil that came out of the hose that connected to the second bottle. Note - I had not remove the second bottle for some time as I would run the first one down until it was empty and then I would refill it. Could oil have been dumped into the second bottle some time when I had it refilled?

RE: Truck Campers 10 years from now?

What if your camper gets the BSOD or a virus when you are out in the boondocks? I will be right back with an answer for that. I have to go upgrade the O/S on my TC and put in more memory so I can store more in the black tank.

RE: Sealing Seams

For older campers I have used all the main brand caulks but last February I bought proflex brush able seal and used a small paint brush. This stuff is amazing. Every seam, window frame, running lights, roof and vent seams, screw holes, and even the AC shroud that had cracks. It has been 10 1/2 months since I did the old 98 Lance and seal is strong!! TC has been through some major downpours on road and at campsites and seal is strong with no leaks. Especially around the dreaded front window on Cab over which I detest!!http://i907.photobucket.com/albums/ac280/billyray50/Lance%20990/P1020588_zps484849c8.jpg width=320 You said you used "proflex brush able seal" but your picture shows cans of "Proflex RV Instant Roof Repair." I am very curious as to which product you used - or both?

RE: Truck Bed Rubber Mat

Another vote for why bother to take it out? When I use the truck for hauling cargo, it keeps the cargo from shifting. I have fliped 1/2 one way, then then other way the two times I have looked under to inspect things. Saw no reason to clean anything underneith. Some minor dust underneith so no action needed.

RE: Gas oven goes out while in use

So it works perfect when you are not using it? Absolutely! Open the oven and use a small piece of sandpaper and lightly sand the thermocouple. This cleans the rust off. It's the little metal tube that is in the path of the pilot light. The pilot heats the thermocouple, which tells the gas valve to open and stay open. Make sure the thermocouple is in the path (middle) of the pilot. The other thing that might be occurring is that as the oven temp cycles and the burner relights, it's blowing out the pilot. Make sure that any kind of shroud around the pilot is positioned properly. Will try that this week.
