repair aqua magic 2

I need to replace waste gate seal on this. I've looked at diagrams for parts but can't see how bowl separates from the base. Anyone know? Thanks!

RE: airbubble from toilet

Don't know what kind of rv you have but on my 5th wheel, the pipe has a 45 degree angle to it going to the tank. If too much toilet paper and not enough water is flushed, it gets stuck in the pipe. A full toilet bowl of water is usually all that is needed to correct the problem. I had one like that except instead of water to correct it, it needed a little prodding.

RE: Accidents versus Safe Driving

I thought I would post my thoughts on the recent rash of accidents and driving habits of some RV drivers. Sounds like a normal day to me.

RE: DisneyWorld's Fort Wilderness

We were there October a year ago and paid $89 a night.That was in the 400 loop.Still expensive but about $40 less than what you would be paying.Don't know if they went up that much in a year or if they charge more at different times of the year? It would probably be our last time there since the whole trip from Pa cost about $3,500 considering fuel,camping,park tickets,food etc. About what we paid last year, 300 or 400 loop, starting the Sunday after Thanksgiving. Went then to see the Christmas lights, which were terrific(some at the campsites pretty good too!). I actually prefer almost any state park to Ft. Wilderness. Just me. For those who think that you're not going bothers Disney, they won't miss you. Won't say when, but the 1st time I went to Disney, I believe that the ticket book for the day was $17 dollars, which was pretty high for us.

RE: what not to do before leaving on a trip

I am leafing a Mexican caravan in just over a week. One of the customers decided to wash & polish his rig and fell off the ladder & broke his heel. Pins & screws time Having broke my right heel in 2001, this is much worse than most broken bones. It usually involves part of the ankle. The loss of some motion of the ankle is not a big deal, it just eventually gets arthritic and that starts the constant pain. I just had my ankle fused this past January. Now full loss of lateral movement which I don't even notice and have done 6-7 mile hikes and this is after years of everyday wondering if I would make it thru the workday. I do hope that your customer does not fall;) in the category I just described. As for those that wish to drive with your left foot, IF your doctor has no driving listed with restrictions, your insurance will PROBABLY not cover you.

RE: 2015 GMC Sierra 3500 - Check Trailer Wiring

My 2008 IBC was replaced under factory warranty. Don't remember what message but similar to what you quote; however I also had same messages when things were wrong such as loose connection.

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: What are these straps for?

To hold mattress?

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.
