RE: Gray tank won't drain

Have you tried just closing and opening the grey valve to see if something has started clogging up at that point?

RE: What are these straps for?

There are no loops or fasteners on the mattress cover and the mattress is longer/wider than the point where they're attached. Not saying that is what they are but you have the original mattress/cover from 1983? I am actually envious of people that use popups. Loved mine. But than was then and this is now.(1986 for a few years)

RE: Beware of Keystone RV products

Now I'll have to go through my insurance company to fix a manufacturers defect because the company refuses to stand by their product! Just me but I would be jumping for joy if my insurance was going to pay for it. Yes, I know that there are deductibles, etc. I do think that RV quality is very lacking and you definitely should not be having that problem. And not to sound whatever but it is out of warranty. Should they cover it 8 months out of warranty? How about 12 months? 2 years? Don't get me wrong. My graphics were splitting after 3 years but I have just have to live with it. Luckily, they are not peeling. Not yet anyway.

RE: LED tail light upgrade

I just swapped out the guts of the lights and called it a day. Could you tell or lead me to "swapping out the guts". I just converted my kitchen overhead fluorescent to LED keeping fixture. Would like to change out taillights.

RE: Mold in wall board in Forst River Blue Ridge UPDATE

Either that or you just noticed pimples that were there from day 1(or shortly thereafter). Exact words my dealer told me when taking it to him during warranty!

RE: small leak

Not sure if you have one installed but this would be a good time for a MaxxAir cover once the leak is fixed. No such thing as a small leak in an RV. I Eternabonded mine and then did the MaxxAir cover. Nice to be able to leave the vent open.

RE: Mold in wall board in Forst River Blue Ridge UPDATE

Mold means moisture is getting there from somewhere/somehow. X2 And the pimpleing was the first sign of water damage on my older trailer. You can do all the caulking and checking you want but it is surprising where leaks can come from. I looked for weeks to find one that was coming from a screw holding the awning bracket. No signs from the outside until taking the screw out and finding the rusted threads. Now if I see any rust on the head of screw, things get checked out.

RE: Bearing failure I presume? Warranty?

Our TT has been put on a LOT of roads with MANY high speed turns in the mountains so the bearings got a hard workout on this trip. ???

RE: Sales tax question

Make that Illinois and Indiana.....but that's not true, at least not the whole amount. Illinois would have charged you the difference when you registered it, as their tax is higher. Bought in Indiana, delivered to Illinois, Titled(registered) in NC.

RE: Sales tax question

Not all states are reciprocal so make sure before you pay so you dont have to pay in both. Don't know about NC & SD, but when I bought my rv in Indiana they drove it about 6 miles to Illinois border for delivery; otherwise I would have paid sales taxes both to NC and Indiana.

RE: Should a rubber roof feel soft when walked on?

So all dry inside. This means absolutely nothing as far as leaks are concerned.

RE: Satellite TV or Cable

I take a SD dish with me. Maybe someone could tell me why with a SlimLime I could not get HD?

RE: To flip or not to flip

My 2010 had two sets of holes in the spring hanger and was set in the top and lowered to the bottom. Run me around $400 but the EquiFlex was cracked on both sides and had to be replaced. The manager tried to get manufacturer, Lippert I think to replace them, but of course not. They bolts were replaced with wet bolts and bushings replaced with Never Fail or something of the sort. The fiver was 3 years old. I was kind of perturbed at the time it was taking but the shop was trying to get the EquiFlex replaced buy manufacturer. Looking back I am glad things worked at the way they did. Although I trust this shop, something I don't trust about welding. Not a shot at welders, just my thing.

RE: insurance trying to screw meeeeeee

NADA Guide value is $8,500 I don't expect that much, I didn't pay that much. I'd put a value of about $2,500 give or take a dollar or two. mssmith1999: You are correct. My mind was still on the value, not his expectations. If I had ask my insurance company for the $2500, they would probably paid a check on the spot. However, he is dealing with the other drivers insurance which really surprises me why they wouldn't cut the check. Seems to me they would get off fairly with the deal. While I am not in love with insurance companies, I have had a few claims without a problem and understand what's going on. As you know claims like this happen everyday. Just seems something strange with the whole situation. As for Nada, KKB, True car, unless new, use them as a ballpark and sometimes they are not that close and everyone of us thinks our vehicles are special, better than the next, etc.

Win 10 also "calls home" in the background, and from what I have read, you may not be able to shut that off. From an article that I just read, you can shut it off. If I read correctly it is tied to Cortana which will also be shut off. Lots of things can be shut down. One needs to do a little "digging" to find it somewhere. Really not the hard to find. Does anyone know if Win10 has "repair" function such as the one one Win7? Haven't found that one yet.

RE: insurance trying to screw meeeeeee

The OP himself says its worth $2500 but wants more. And he has said he wants a different RV.

RE: insurance trying to screw meeeeeee

I did take people's advice. I went so far as to file an uninsured motorist claim As far as I know uninsured motorist insurance only covers medical. Seems to me you were already talking to the other guys insurance as I'm sure you don't have collision. Yours is an old story that happens every day. You paid $2500 so we know the value. At MOST, you would not get more than that value. I do believe you are owed something but sounds like you're really looking for a way to get rid of it and buy something else. Lawyers and State people involved in this is ridiculous!

RE: real slow ACER netbook

Dang, that is some crazy cpu usage! Did chrome have some really busy tabs open? 25-50% still sounds awfully high to me. On my small computers, I notice slowness when they getto 20%, and they usually run below that, say 5-18%. According to Task Manager, which I do not completely trust. Win 7 boots. First thing check cpu usage under task manager and it you would see it climb from almost 0 to 100% and stay. All the squares in task manager would turn green and stay there. One time after booting up, saw something and Chrome on the screen and then disappeared. Delete chrome and dropped to the 25-50. I agree that's too high but the laptop is seldom used and now does what I want. I will be chasing more on it later.
