RE: Black Water not draining

If you have a cable operated dump valve, it's also possible that the connection has broken right behind the frame. If that's the case, you can drop a small portion of the underbelly and pull that cable. If you have a blockage at the outlet, your best bet is to get the valve all the way open and let nature/gravity take its course. Before you go too much further, you should add a clear sewer extension to the end of your pipe so you can actually see what's going on instead of relying on sound.

RE: Seasonal working at UPS during Christmas rush..??

I just finished the online application for UPS (driver helper). The last step in the process was giving me a date/time/place for an interview. I looked at the info twice before realizing that it wouldn't take place at a UPS facility. Instead, it will be at the county job force office. So, I can only assume that there will be a packed house at the appointed hour. We'll see if my Amazon experience helps me to stand out from the crowd. BTW, part of the online app mentioned that any seasonal hires interfacing with the public would have to adhere to UPS appearance guidelines. For me, that will mean shaving the beard if I get hired. Not a biggie since I keep it short anyway and it won't take long to grow back.

RE: Monetizing videos on YouTube: Experience/Comments

I suspect he's trying to make money from videos that he posts on YouTube. Not strictly a technical question, more a business question if that's the correct interpretation.

RE: Propane Tank Recertification $$$

I would hope that 25 bucks includes a refill.. IF IT DOES, get 'em re-certed, should be good for 10, not 5 years or so I thought. As for me.. Well, it's a motor home, no re-cert needed. Nope, it's 5 years if the letter E is also stamped next to the new date. This is usually the case. There's another recert method which, if memory serves correctly, is good for 7 years but it's more expensive and fairly rare to see.

RE: gray water tank - Wolf Creek 850

I would suspect a tank cutout still in the tank.

I have a ceramic heater but it doesn't make a dent in the cold on mornings like this. I tried running two but it trips the breaker. Until your furnace is repaired, make sure your 2 heaters are on separate circuits. Also, if you can select settings individually do NOT leave them on the highest setting.

RE: Suburban water heater ?

Thanks for the link to the video. I had run some hot water out of the tank, then turned on the electric side before test with my voltmeter.

Suburban water heater ?

Electric heat stopped working on my 12DE water heater. Propane still works fine. The on/off switch at the water heater was stuck in the ON position (been fulltiming since '06). Sprayed some professional blaster on it and it started rocking again after awhile. Checked voltage at T-stat and heating element and getting 0 volts. Leads me to believe that the switch got corroded and has a broken wire. Can that switch be popped out from the outside (facing the front of the water heater)? Or do I need to crawl behind and push it out?

RE: Refrigerator Condensation Drain Tube

When mine did that, I went to the local hardware store. Bought a brass union and a couple feet of clear plastic tubing. Cut the old tube inside the compartment, worked the union in, then attached enough clear tube to other side of the union to stick out the vent.

RE: Traveling with dogs that RV parks get concerned about

I wish stores/restaurants could restrict 'pets' easier......without the threat of lawsuits due to 'ambiguous' comfort animals. X2

RE: Black tank dump valve replacement tips?

I've had a few slow leaks from the black tank. Never replaced the valve, just did a very good fill/flush the next time. After refilling the tank with fresh water, I open the valve slightly. The increased flow pressure going past the valve seat usually pulls whatever TP was stuck there so it can seat properly.

RE: Do Cable Companies Fake Data Useage

You didn't mention your OS. If you have Win 8.x, do you have live tiles turned on and updating? As others have stated, video ads (whether you see them or not) can eat up a lot of data. Are your news videos coming over in HD or SD?

RE: How you heatin?

Personally, I bundle up during the evening and put extra blankets on the bed while I'm sleeping. When I wake up in the morning, I'll run the furnace for 20-30 mins to take the chill off.

RE: Membership discounts

Please keep in mind that those discounts are only good off the daily rates. If you're going to stay weekly/monthly/longer, those rates usually have built-in discounts from the park/campground.

RE: Tips, tricks, do's and dont's ....

I use a covered (dome) litter box and non-clumping clay litter. Works great for me.

RE: Travel Lunches Non-Heat Non-Fridge?

Backpacker mode, beef jerky, trail mix, dried apricots/fruit. X2. Or if you want a hot meal, look at Heater MealsThe link I provided only show sales by the case but I'm sure you can find them individually in sporting goods stores. I've actually had a few and they're not bad.

RE: Don't trust the GSRA phone people

There seem to be more and more of these reports where the GS dispatcher tells stranded folks to call local law enforcement. Definitely NOT encouraging.

RE: Interesting things to see and do?

The topic of this post, http://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/27979117.cfm would also apply to sightseeing.
