RE: Toilet: porcelain or plastic?

Never had a problem with my Aqua Magic V. Yes if yo look down the hole with the flush valve open you can see some dried on splashing. It's below the blade valve so I just don't worry about it.

RE: dragging the propane tanks...

I'm wondering if I tighten the big wing nut on top of the tanks and then drill and zip tie the wingnut to the hold down bar beneath it, would that prevent the threaded rod from vibrating loose?

RE: Electrical problem

The other outlets not working could be another GFI somewhere else in that is tripped. Another thing to check is often times a breaker will trip but not really look tripped. I would unplug the shore power. Then flip each breaker off and press firmly in the off direction before turning it back on. A tripped breaker will feel spongy or springy in the off direction where the others will not. As far as the 12 volt items (lights refrigerator, slide) my guess is the no power has caused the battery to drain. Either that or you possibly hooked the battery up backwards and it blew the reverse polarity fuses. Look for one or two fuses that are set apart from the other fuses a bit. Pull them out and swap them with two different fuses to temporarily test. If you have a digital meter it would be helpful too.

RE: 24 foot TT can I camp at tent sites?

Typically the tent spots really only have enough room for a car to park. You would have to cal the individual campground you are interested, but I would bet they say no trainers in the tent sites.

RE: Jacks

My jacks are up. They are only there for stabilizing the trailer when people are moving around in it. Since I'm not hanging out in there when in storage there's no reason to lower them.

RE: Wireing for added tailights

Does your rv have red lights for brake and running lights and amber lights for turn signals? If so and there is no converter box it is probably wired incorrectly. Import vehicles with amber turn signals use one wire for each turn signal and one wire to power both brake lights. If there are only 4 wires connected then it is probably wired for the two turn signals the running lights and ground with no brake lights. If this is true you would need something like this. Link As you can see in the photo, the converter takes the separate turn signal and brake wires and combines them into two wires that power both the turn signal and brake on each wire.

RE: Wireing for added tailights

Your other option is to remove the converter and wire the turn signals to the amber LED's on your new lights.

RE: Wireing for added tailights

Your camper has a faulty trailer light converter. The converter is trying to convert a 5 wire Toyota system 1. Tail lights2. Brake lights3. Left turn (usually amber)4. Right turn (usually amber)5. Ground. and convert it to a 4 wire (domestic) system. 1. Tail lights2. Left turn/Brake3. Right turn/brakes4. Ground Your converter box has failed and is not feeding the brake light signal to the plug on the bumper. With a test light you can verify this. You can also buy a new converter box at most auto part stores as well as Uhaul and maybe even Walmart.

RE: Eternabond lifting rubber roof

I wonder too if it's just a poor bonding. On my roof I notice that over the years the membrane has cone un-bonded along the top edges. I know it's not a leak because I had to slice into some of the sections and the roof is dry underneath

RE: Overheated my brakes

I wouldn't worry about it. Brakes get hot but after they cool they will work just fine.

RE: They take a licking and keep on ticking...

A bit off topic but I noticed your rope for lifting the batteries. I did that too on my first set and it always hurt my hands. Now I use one of these handles. Link

RE: Thetford c-402c Cassettee Potty repair

Helped my brother with that repair once. we had a bit of a problem since it wasn't on ebay and the seller was in UK and would not ship to the US. We had to have a friend in Australia order it and then ship it to us. The repair was fairly simple after receiving the disc. Good luck with the repair.

RE: Deteriorating door handle -- solved -- see update below

Probably easy to replace. On my trailer there is a flush square plug at each end of the handle. A small regular screwdriver will pop the plug out and expose the screw underneath. you need a new handle Maybe one of these and some butyl tape to seal the screw holes.

RE: Hauling a big trailer for only a couple of miles ?

I would totally do it. 2 miles on a surface street with a 45mph speed limit? Put it in drive and go 35 mph for two miles and be done with it. It's not going to sway at that speed. Buy a $35 timed brake controller and go get your trailer. I do like the U-haul idea also. anybody know what size ball their trucks have?

RE: New to TT (long time pop-upper) WD hitch probs

Also don't be afraid to hitch up to just the ball and pull the trailer out to a flat spot in the campground to hook up the bars.

RE: New to TT (long time pop-upper) WD hitch probs

OP here: On the initial campground attempt to hitch, the TV was enough out of alignment that the drivers side square bar was way off to the side, and we couldn't push it enough toward the L bracket to get it into place. You should be able to swing the bars fairly easily. From your description it sounds like you possibly have the wrong ball and if so it can cause the bar sockets to crack and fail. Go look at the bottom of your hitch. The shank and nut of the ball has to be completely inside the hole in the bottom so the bars can swing over the hole. If the threads stick out of the hole the sockets will hit and crack on tight turns.

RE: Water Heater

Look for something like this on the back of the water heater. http://cdn.blog.rvshare.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/3-valve-water-heater-bypass_.jpg?de6dcd height=300
