RE: How do we repair this oops that hubby just made?

How deep is the hole behind the puncture? If there is something not to deep, there is a 2 part epoxy putty, like clay bars. Knead the 2 parts together and stuff it in as best you can . This will cure like a brick and allow the base of the ladder to have something to screw into. Also need to drill small holes at the end of each crack to prevent the cracks from "running" any further than they already are. Could also cut a block of wood slightly larger than hole and work it in behind the hole and epoxy it in place. Either way there needs to be some backing for the ladder to be properly screwed back.

RE: Slide out Battery Trays - Who has installed them?

I made mine. Heaviest 24" ball bearing drawer slides at HD. 3/4" plywood for tray and sides. Because of the lip in the cabinet the tray sits high, making it tricky pulling the tray out, but it does work. Used the existing hold downs. Varnish the plywood good for water protection, going on 7 years now. First mod I did on this unit.

RE: Cheap ammeter for power hungry RV's

Could you be more specific about what wires go where? Looking at the back of the unit, the wire taps from top to bottom. Understand no printed instructions, just diagram on back of unit. Also is there a problem with lengthen those short supplied leads?

RE: Metal carport for FT RVer -Need advice

I would run a 2' piece of the roofing horizontal at the top of the long side walls, screwed to each stud.I've done this with mine, and it gives a tremendous amount of strength to the vertical supports. Depending how tall your side walls are, you should still be able to see out.

RE: Sway bar upgrade worth it?

I have a 97 e350 that had no sway bar. Installed a helwig by myself. Made a world of difference when big trucks pass.

RE: Quietest vent fan Maxxair or Fantstic?

I have one of each. Fantastic is much quieter. Max is in the bathroom and if run on high seems like it would suck wallpaper off the walls.

RE: Reserve America

Just made reservation in Ky. State park. $22 for w/e and $7.50 to RA!!! And you still have to go to a person to check in, who could have made the reservation in the first place.

Roadmaster reflex stabilizer

When looking at subject for a 97 e350, seems like it uses a RSSC body. When I look at different suppliers for a RSSC, some show with a yellow spring, others show a blue spring. Is there any difference, yes other than color? I know it uses a separate mounting brackets.

RE: Driver side sun visor

OP again. Still looking. What I had in mind was like two large "bulldog paper clamps" that are some how hinged to allow up and down motion. Hard to describe but imagine pulling stock visor down and keeping aux visor "level" to door. The roll up idea might have to work.

RE: Driver side sun visor

So, what did you use to get the extra visor?

Driver side sun visor

I'm looking for an extra sun visor that will clip to the existing visor. Found many that will hang down from existing, but I want one that will work on drivers door side as well as the current one in the front at the same time. For when the sun is getting you from the side and front at the same time. Yes, could mount an identical to current on the side, but not exactly what I want. Any ideas? This is for an "E" series Ford.

RE: Europe's RV's

OP here. Guess what I was getting at was what would it take to get one of "their" rv's to work over here?

RE: Direct tv app

Great link! Thanks. Not really what I wanted to hear but still will beat having to buy a new portable sat. Just have to watch a little older stuff. Still no additional cost.....so far. :)

Direct tv app

My other thread got off subject, so starting another. We have the Direct tv app on our new unlimited data iPad air2. When playing with the app, it seems that I can only get previous shown shows, not current "live" programming. Also no locals, which I can somewhat understand. Is it possible to get live tv with just the iPad and the app, anyone with experience doing this?

iPad air2 to TV

Been posting about getting Direct tv HD on a portable dome. Now read a bunch of reasons this can't happen. While getting a second Direct tv account yesterday, DW also acquired a new iPad air2 with unlimited data. With the Direct tv app, we now have direct on the new iPad. In another recent post it was said you could connect the " phone" to the tv. So will it work to connect the iPad to the tv to watch on a large screen? How? Is it a simple cord from iPad to HDMI on tv?
