RE: Broken pin in TT front jack

I second the hardware store. Take the broken pieces and head to Lowes, Home Depot or Ace. They will have drawers of specialty nuts, bolts, t-nuts, plastic bolts, and pins. just find the one that looks closest and you should be good to go.

RE: Refer Fire Extinguisher??

I have seen posts and pictures of installs. But I don't recall a post about one going off and saving the coach.

RE: leaving for 2 months??

I've never had to do it, but I've read on here of a few different ways. One is to pay the neighbors kid a small fee to come in once a week or two and flush all the toilets and run the water in the sinks and tub for about 5 seconds each. Other people pour a little mineral oil down all the traps to keep them from drying out. Others do the oil and also stretch saran wrap across the toilet bowl. Just don't forget to remove the wrap when you get home. That's all the tips I remember.

RE: RV Propane outside quick connect

I agree with westend on this. You might try getting a barbeque pressure regulator to put between the quick connect and the grill. If you adapt that to a quick connect as well you can remove it as needed.

RE: Upgrading Travel Trailer Electric service

I can't see any reason to have 50 amp service on a 19 foot trailer. To me that would just be throwing money away. It would be far cheaper to buy a $10 50/30 adapter for the unlikely event that you ever encounter a 50 amp only site.In truth without a rooftop ac and large microwave you probably don't even need a 30 amp service. But I would do the 30 amp anyway as that's what comes standard in most trailers.

RE: Mega-trouble unhitching

That has got to be frustrating for you.I don't think I've ever had a problem unhooking mine. I wonder if your coupler is bent. You might want to go to Walmart and buy a 2 5/16 ball and latch it into the trailer tongue without a hitch, just use the bare ball. Now try to unhitch it. If the ball releases easily you can be reasonably sure that the coupler is in good shape and it's something else causing the problem.

RE: Norcold noisy

I wonder if the sound is the cooling fan on your converter. if your converter is mounted under the refrigerator it might sound like the fan is actually in the refrigerator. Maybe try opening the refrigerator door and look for a door switch.If you find one press it in and see if the noise starts up. If you can't find a switch but there is a light in the refrigerator, try removing the light bulb. Maybe it;s the converter fan and it changes pitch as the bulb in the refrigerator puts a load on the converter.

RE: Beward of MAAD / Goobers Service in Beaver, UT

Interesting to say the least. I'm sure I've read essentially the same thing on this forum a few years ago. Here it is 2013. 2013 or 2012 2012 2011 Price gouging

RE: Waste coming out when opening flush top

There's really only two things you can do. Rebuild or replace the existing valve.Add a twist on valve. Link

RE: TV Rear Shock Leaking.

Agreed you didn't cause this. Hopefully the dealer will replace both, but it's not the end of the world if they won't. There are thousands of RV's running down the road with worn out shocks or no shocks at all and they do just fine.

RE: charging batteries with Honda2000

It makes no difference, the charge speed is the same in both modes. Leave it in eco mode and save noise and fuel.

RE: Oil For Portable Generator

I run plain dinosaur oil in my Honda. I change the oil every season or two, or when I feel like it.

RE: success!

Awesome pictures, thanks for sharing. I agree with you on posting the other kids pictures. In my camping group there are easily 15 kids if not more. Sometimes it can be a challenge getting pictures that I'm comfortable posting that don't have someones kids in it.

RE: Read your hitch manual...

Ask me how I learned this... :) Ok, I'll just go ahead and tell you. On my last trip out I noticed that my hitch seemed to be acting a bit squirrly. Not too bad but I seemed to be getting pushed around more than I remembered from last season. We were just getting ready to leave out on a 2500 mile trip and the hitch performance was buggin me. So I did the unthinkable! I broke out the hitch manual and read it... Paid special attention to the adjusting and maintaining section. Sure enough, I discovered that I had been neglecting to check the tightness of one little set screw. It's fairly hidden below the ball and out of sight. Tightened that baby up according to the instructions... I swear I have a whole new hitch and towing experience. Amazing the difference a 5/8 wrench, 15 seconds, and a little turn or two will do for you! Lesson learned, thankfully before I broke anything. Single set screw and 5/8 inch wrench, I'm betting it's an equal-i-zer hitch.

RE: Travelling with hot water tank full?

Yes that drain plug is a pain to get to. I finally solved that issue by screwing it back in finger tight. Then put the socket and the socket only on the plug and turn a bit tighter with your fingers. It won't leak and it's easy to remove the next time yo want to drain it. Make sure to run a hot faucet in the RV until the pressure is released from the tank before you pull the plug.

RE: Water Pump Motor Repair

Some pumps have a filter bowl between the fresh tank the the pump. If you have one it might be plugged. I would try to eliminate the water source or hose first, then disconnect the outlet hose at or near the pump and see if if is any different there.

RE: 24v to 12v

as 2oldman state, count the fill holes on the top of the battery and multiply by 2. 3 caps = 6 volts 6 caps = 12 volts 12 caps = 24 volts

RE: Christening rv toilet

Good to hear that it's holding water, I had a feeling that was what you would find. As far as keeping the tank clean, my humble opinion is to not worry about it too much. It's a tank full of poop water, it will never be clean enough to eat out of so just let it be. I sometimes run the tank sprayer in mine to help clean the tank out. But in the end you have no way of knowing that it's really clean and can only assume that it is. Just keep some water in it and empty it when full. Yes I've has some smell when dumping my tank, but really that lasts for all of 5 minutes then the wind blows it away.

RE: Dinette does not seem to fit properly

I think I kind of see what you are contemplating doing. I also think it would be a bad idea. I base that on the fact that it sounds like something I would consider. And every time I have done something like that which required brute force, it always went bad.You are better off looking at the slides and see if there is something obviously wrong.

RE: Ambience of a campfire

How about a big funnel too so you don't miss. It looks like they are trying to prevent large campfires.
