RE: I'm addicted to mods...

Don't forget the "Smart Tile" mod for the kitchen backsplash, just did ours and I love it! I think those are manuf. in Canada,maybe you can get them cheap! hehe, I ordered a package of those last week and which will be another mod that will get done with during spare time on our 2 week vacation which starts in a week. I'm hoping to do the kitchenette and bathroom, covering the "lovely" border that came with the TT. Just finished these mods: New antenna head since the old head almost fell off while driving.Replaced awning fabricReplaced door window with EDWINReplaced shower curtain with new accordion shower doorOxygenics shower headcracked rain gutter replaced with extended spoutsStarr stainless bottle cap remover outside next to door OP, you're not alone. :)

RE: Ordering parts / accessories

Same recommendations as everyone else for online ordering but just wanted to throw a shout-out to etrailer.com. The people at etrailer.com 100% understand customer service and I would never hesitate buying from them... great online site.

RE: First trip with new trailer/truck

...It seems a bit odd that they carpeted the floor underneath the dining table - might require more cleaning. That's what the family dog is for. :) Ours has carpet and has never been an issue being dirtier under the dinette. Although my kids are older, so no highchair situation.

RE: chocking wide spread axles

Yes, I use both a standard wedge style chock as well as the Bal X-Chocks on both axles. There are many posts on this forum on how to make your own wedge style chocks. Just do a quick search and it should come up.

RE: I'm addicted to mods...

I never though about the fact that if you make a major mod you could void the warrenty. It does not surprise me that the dealer refused to service a modified TT. He has no idea of what all you may have done to the TT. It is true that the factory may throw these things together in a flash, but the good or bad dealer knows what to exspect from them. Beside, he probably already has plentry of work. You obviously don't have the sickness of being an engineer. We do things because they could be better. It's FUN!

RE: Memorial Weekend Ruined

This is bold misinterpretation. They weren't protesting oil. Oil is clearly a necessity. Nobody claims oil is evil. Just those who ONLY seek to profit from it and act with impunity when it destroys lives. If this is a misinterpretation, please feel free to explain what the protest was about. Seems there are many reports available that claim this protest was about oil exploration in the arctic. I'm not understanding the misinterpretation part. However, I'm more laughing at the hypocrisy of people and their "topic of the moment" approach to issues.

RE: 2011 - 2014 6.7 Powerstroke PCM update. Did You?

My biggest concern would be that it doesn't 'break' it right away, but under certain conditions...it might act up...or go into limp mode...or stop the vehicle or kill a component on the spot... I'm curious, since you don't own one of these trucks, why this is a big concern for you?

RE: Trouble Shooting a wet.patch

Sounds like when your slide-out is in, the slide covers the wet spot area? If this is true, does the wet spot get wetter when the slide has been out for an extended time? Or is it noticeably wetter once the wet spot area is exposed when the slide was just put out?

RE: Trouble Shooting a wet.patch

Is the wet spot in the middle of the floor with standing water and if so, any sings of wetness or dripping from above? I'm going to assume no. Then your wet spot on the floor is near a wall? It is very rare for a leak to travel up, so chances are it is coming from above or travelling within a wall. Does the wall contain a window? Is the area noticeably wet after rain, using water within the TT or after using AC?

RE: Memorial Weekend Ruined

Meanwhile the vast amount of natural gas seepage in the Santa Barbara Channel continues: These natural seeps have leaked gas and oil through cracks below the ocean surface for the past thousands of years. Santa Barbara Channel’s Natural Oil Seeps If you've ever been on a boat there, you would know the seepage is all over the place. I'm not trying to lessen the importance and horrible situation of this current major oil leak... but the amount of sensationalism surrounding the oil spill and how that area will be ruined for decades is also appalling. Should be about time for another anti-oil protest by those showing up in their petroleum produced kayaks. IRONY is watching Seattle enviros protest oil… They came in auto­mo­biles fueled by oil, wear­ing cloth­ing made from oil, to protest oil, in kayaks made from oil. Then they tweeted their pho­tos on phones made from oil and drove home. Share the irony. http://agenda21news.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/11233491_10153287782355281_4985912876975514416_n-300x283.jpg

RE: Suggested Loop and Attractions

Some more Oregon suggestions... The coast is definitely a must, lived on the north coast for nine years and it truly is beautiful. Having said that, Oregon's John Day Fossil Beds National Monument is amazing for natural scenery. There are 3 units there, this one being Painted Hills Unit: http://i267.photobucket.com/albums/ii301/_RedRocket_/DSC_0462_crop.jpg width=650 http://i267.photobucket.com/albums/ii301/_RedRocket_/PaintedHills_NefEdit_640.jpg width=650 There is no camping in the park so you would need to find a spot near there. We stayed in a great little town, Dayville, at the Fish House Inn and RV Park. It is really small so reservations are recommended. Near Dayville is another John Day Fossil Beds National Monument, Sheep Rock Unit. There is a HS north of Dayville where you can legally dig for leaf fossils. There are many orchards nearby and you can pick you own fruit. This area is truly a gem that most are not aware of. No crowds when we were there and such a nice place to visit.

RE: Door window sealant?

Same here was/am hoping to get it to have it done before we headed out for a week.. Yes, that was my concern also. I felt 2 1/2 weeks was plenty of time to ship the window and was shocked at the 4-6 weeks notice. I too am headed out come June 1st for a 2 week trip with the TT so it did place some worry on me that I wouldn't receive it in time.
RedRocket204 05/20/15 12:14pm General RVing Issues
RE: Door window sealant?

yeah, that irked me a little bit too when that shipping information was mentioned after the order was complete. The good news... it only took about 1 week to receive it once the order was placed :) I am assuming the 4-6 weeks for shipment is more in-line with their custom order windows but give them an out for the standard EDWIN window if they run short on supply.

RE: What happens when you lose a tire at 70-75 MPH?

I have driven 4 million miles and am not comfortable with a Travel trailer at any higher speed. 4 million miles towing a TT? That must be a record. IMHO they are not safe above that speed and have seen wrecks that prove my theory. Good thing you stopped and spent the time at each one of those wrecks to do a full, expert analysis of the wrecks to prove your theory.

RE: Door window sealant?

A bit more than replacing that- but I highly recommend the Edwin window https://www.easyrvwindows.com/images/edwin-vs-traditional.jpg as a replacement. A pretty much unanimous opinion to those who have bought them. Found your post mildly amusing... I received my EDWIN window today and will get it installed this weekend. I'm only replacing to get the added ventilation along with being able to see out of it.

RE: Door window sealant?

Remove all the silicone. Use a silicone removal product to get all traces of it off your RV. Replace it with Geocel Pro RV or Dicor non-leveling sealant. So is this a product, that I get at RV shops? Not certain on the Geocel but Dicor, yes.

RE: Cap or Tonneau or Neither?

The Cap's biggest drawback is the weight. It will be very difficult for me to take it off, and it adds 200+ pounds to the truck all the time. My same complaint as I always need to ask my neighbor to help remove and put it back on later. So, did some looking around and came upon this: youtube - How to remove a pick-up truck cap with one person and simple hardware Looks simple enough. The only modification will be on the cross bars. Mine is fiberglass that goes over the sides but the main structure of the canopy, kind of recessed, rests on the bed rails. So, I will put risers on the cross members so the canopy recessed area rests properly on the cross members and not outside fiberglass area.
