RE: Bubbles under rubber roof

There are too many good trailers out there to take a risk on something you don't understand. It may be fine. On the other hand......... x2 There are too many good trailers out there to take a risk on something you don't understand. x10

RE: No hot water flow, what's up

Hot water heater check valve?
Beaker 01/15/15 06:49pm General RVing Issues

There is no difference removing a sensor to removing a valve cap My flow thru have a "lock" on the sensor where it screws onto the valve. A small allen wrench(provided) is needed to take off the sensor which makes taking it off a pita.

RE: Reserve America Question

If I read your question right, you want to be able to reserve every site in every park all year for 1 reservation fee?

RE: Backing in a 5th wheel

A fifth wheel starts its turn slower but once under way it turns quick. Pull farther ahead than you think to start your turn and once it starts turning be ready to chase it in to where you want it to go. Pulling further ahead helps tremendously! However I don't "chase" it once I know I've overcut it. Just pull forward and it helps a lot to get it going in the right direction. I recently install a 5AB Sidewinder and it is even easier now.

RE: water heater adjustable thermostat

My suggestion is to get a mixing valve. Then you can still have the full output, and not get scalded. I will look into this. No reason to have water as hot as this.

water heater adjustable thermostat

I'm thinking of replacing thermostat on water heater with an adjustable one. This sucker is way too hot! Replacement looks pretty simple on youtube. Has anyone replaced theirs, have reasons not to, or run into any problems?

RE: Hawkshead TPMS

I have a 507 TST Flow thru. It worked perfect during a 600 mile trip in spring. I had problems with it on a recent 1200 mile trip. I called TST and they recommended a signal booster($59)and I bought it. The truck is sitting about 35 feet from the fifth right now and everything working good. I guess time will tell.

RE: RV driver charged in fatal accident in Tennessee

I don't believe you get an accurate perception of what really happened. I know what happened. He ran over an officer on duty while 100's or thousands of cars did not. The only real question is was he doing anything out of the ordinary. If he was traveling the same speed as the rest of the traffic, then the rest of the traffic is just as guilty as he is. NO!! The rest of the traffic did not kill a policeman on duty.

RE: Switching to LED lighting

Definitely go with panels rather than "bulbs" and definitely "warm white". Bright white is actually blue and not very bright. eBay is the place to get them, too. Just finished replacing mine. Bought the paddle type and were too dim for me. Replaced them with the 48smd which are much brighter. Mine are the "bright white" also referred to as "pure white" which does make a bluish lite but of course that is a personal preference. My kitchen light over the sink burned out last week(fluorescent)and I used that fixture and wired it for the 48smd. Regardless of what you use check out pricing everywhere; prices are all over the board.

RE: credit card limit

The 5% cash rebate we get on just our fuel purchases buts us well ahead of paying in cash or by check. And could you tell me what card that would be?

RE: credit card limit

Guess we need to begin carrying large amounts of cash That's what I was doing but hoping for Alaska next year...don't wish to carry that much in cash. Suppose to get 3% cash back on fuel with this card, that would beat the cash discounts.

credit card limit

On a recent trip I tried out a new Nationwide credit card. At a couple of gas stations saw signs on the pumps spelling out money limits on certain card. One station stopped at $75 but would not retake card. At one station stopped at $75 but let me run another $75 after rerunning card. At a truck stop ran over $175 and did not stop. Has anyone been able to have their credit limit upped when using it for fuel?

Going to need diesel along I95 in Ga or Fl. Either state cheaper than the other or not worth thinking about? Thanx!

RE: Canoe and 5th wheel

I just purchased a Sea Eagle 370 to take with us. I spent the last three years of thinking the Porta-bote way but I think that the Sea Eagle is going to be it. I was going to go the front hitch way but I am not interested to see all the scenery in the U.S while driving with a post in it.

RE: Anybody use " RV Warranty Forever" service?

Don't have it but would like to know what are the costs? Nothing up front? How much for the inspection? Where are the inspectors? What if the find a `problem'? Who fixes it? How much to fix it, if any? Is everyone nationwide? I have no interest in extended warranties for ANYTHING but am always interested in "new" business models. Checking around the internet I have found that this is not a warranty you buy, it is a "standard feature" on all new RVs(and some used) sold by a participating dealer. The customer must bring the RV back yearly for inspection and maintenance. Think that there won't be a good size bill for "needed" maintenance? Also I won't list the stuff not covered but the one that stuck out(catch that?) was slides weren't covered, but of course the buyer can always buy another extended warranty to cover what is not covered by the "lifetime" warranty. Whose or what lifetime I'm not sure. Telling the RV buyer that this RV has a lifetime warranty is just another selling gimmick. Many will buy that particular RV because of the warranty. I am not one of many.

RE: Still have water heater issue.

You have a bad check valve. IF they have 3 valves, which husband says they have, there would not be a check valve. Well top valve is open. Bottom valve is open. Middle valve is closed. Now no water at all coming out of the hot water taps. Cold water taps OK. This though gives a thought that perhaps there is a check valve. Has OP checked{by overflow valve) to see that there is hot water in the tank?
