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

Scrubbed the bejeezers out of the roof this morning. Going to apply EPDM tomorrow morning. That sounds like big project. Did it have EPDM before? How do you plan to cut the openings? Did you take all existing items off the roof? I made one minor error in my original post. I should have added the word "liquid" as in "liquid EPDM" oops!

Well, I got home and it fired up right away. (The water heater that is)

RE: Altitude Effects on Fridge?

You might need to add a fan to the rear coils of the the refrigerator. The installation of the refrigerator on some RV's do not provide for proper airflow across the rear coils for the most efficient operation of the refrigerator. I had to install a fan on all three of my RV's. You can - buy a new roof vent for the refrigerator that has a solar powered fan (however it does not work in the shade or at night - on the other hand there is no electrical wiring involved in the install) - Buy a kit that contains all the parts for a thermostatic controlled 12v fan - build your own. You will need an old fan out of a computer, a thermostat from Amazon (the one I selected was $14), a fuse holder and some wire.

RE: Soda Crate Moral Dilemma (& Informal Survey)

The other day, I saw a gallon of lemonaid fall out of the cab of a truck. I stopped and picked it up, but I could not catch up with the truck to return it. What should I do with it?

RE: Annoying Appliance Aggravates Anniversary Affair

Problem is I cant get the P&T valve out to replace it. Any suggestions? Annode is in good condition (replaced it not too long ago) Unfortunately, lots of rust on anything that will rust. It was that way when I bought the camper used. The P&T valve is rusted in place. Can't it just be used on electric? We've never used ours on gas. The only problem I see is if electricity is not available. This model is gas only.

Annoying Appliance Aggravates Anniversary Affair

We made it to our 30th! We decided to run off and do one of our favorite activities - camping - to celebrate. Problem is, the first morning we got there we had a chill put on things. Looks like the thermocouple on our cold water heater* quit. (Fortunately we chose to go to a campground instead of boondocking and there were bath houses) The burner will light off and burn for about 15 seconds while the igniter continues to fire, then will shut down for 30 seconds. It will repeat that three times, then stay off until the switch is cycled. I have decided to replace the water heater because: 1. it is 15 years old 2. I discovered the T&P valve 3 years ago would not open any more. I attempted to remove it and when I tried I started to crush it. Then I noticed the T&P valve would open again, so I stopped there. 3. There is all sorts of rust flakes falling off the outside of it (around the T&P valve and the annode) I am guessing the water heater is a Suburban 5120A or equivalent based on appearance. Most all the labels on it are illegible and I have no documentation for it. My question is should I just get another Suburban 5120A or is there something better I can get without breaking the bank? I expect that we will probably have this RV for at least another 5 years. Your $0.02 would be appreciated! * Yes, cold water heater. Why would you heat water that is already hot?
