RE: New TT with Rusty Bottom

A can of rust converter, a paint brush and a couple hours of his time will cure the issue for his lifetime.

RE: Water issue

Everybody has tried, but everything that has been suggested is really basic stuff. If you simply cannot do basic home repairs, then you need to think about hiring a mobile repair tech.

RE: Water issue

Where water fill valve usually located. How long have you owned this RV? Have you ever taken the time to learn the systems? Not teying to be nasty, but geeze this is RV101 stuff that you should have learned the first month of ownership. If you dont understand RV systems maybe its time you hired a mobile RV mechanic to come and teach you the basics.

RE: Water issue

Take the aerator acreems off each faucet. Thats the part the water comes out.

RE: Water issue

Winterizing valves in the wrong positions. Most likely the aerator screens plugged with crud.

RE: Hot water heater

Take it out and take it with you to your favorite big box or hardware store. They are a common electric element.

RE: Travel trailers and appliances

Two way refer means 120VAC or propane. Remember most refers will still need 12VDC as control voltage. Water pump brings water from the on board storage tank to the faucets, toilet, etc. It does not work unless there is water in the tank first. Might be a good idea to hire a mobile service tech to come spend a couple hours with you and teach you all about RV systems.

RE: Electric brakes

The small battery is probably your emergency brake power, so its likely all you need.

RE: So how do you go about getting somebody comfortable towing?

Try to find a local RV or truck driving school and see if they could give hin a days training.

RE: Newer diesel with least problems

Seems that most of the new diesels have had teething problems. Ford and GM CP4 lift pump failures. I understand the new trucks are now using an updated version. But for others according to one poster their on national back order. Ram? Early 07s did have some issues, but after a couple of software flashes have been bullet proof. Witness the numerous hot shotters using newest Rams many of them well over 200K miles and still running strong. The newest ones using DEF have had a few issues with the DEF systems. Mainly sensor failures. But that complaint has died down too. I would not hesitate to jump into a new Diesel. They are just soo nice and quiet. Once you do that 7.3 will feel like under powered junk.

RE: What does this mean???

Don't get excited about it. You have the GVWR and inside there will be a yellow tag with weight as it left the factory. That's what you need to know.

RE: What does this mean???

All of the above. GVWR is the sum of the weakest component. Could be tires, wheels, axles, or springs.

RE: Older fridge not cooling

Sounds like your cooling unit is going bad. You could replace the refer, about $1200 dollars. You could repace the cooling unit with a new Amish unit, about $700. Dollars. Or you could replace it with a dorm refer, about $300. Dollars plus the cost of an inverter and wiring. It all depends on how you camp, how often you camp and how long you plan to keep this trailer. Personally I would go with the Amish unit. But Im handy, and can fix things.

RE: Finally pulled the trigger on a 5er

Make absolutely positively sure you have enough truck. Anything marginal and you will hate the towing experience.

RE: Bama Scooter on back of my 5th wheel help deciding

Likely the receiver is not rated for that much weight. But to be sure ask the mfg.

RE: ***Traveling out west*** Need Suggestions

Two weeks is not enough time for an RV trip. Your looking at a week just in travel time. I would suggest flying to someplace like Boise or SLC and rent a car or SUV. Of your really wanting to rent, again fly to SLC and rent one there. Be sure to have reservations. BTY, board the dog.

RE: Corroded Direct TV Slimline

It should be a standard coax bulkhead fitting.

RE: Cell Phone problem - SOLVED

Take the battery out, wait two minutes and put it back in. If that does not work, call your phone provider and they should be able to walk you thru the restore procedures. Be aware you will loose EVERYRHING. Your other option is to go get a new phone. The S4 is now pretty old technology with a really short battery life. I was lucky to get a half day, with my newer phone I can go all day easily.
