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

RE: Cut open underbelly

the dealer had to cut into the sealed underbelly. All the way across, side to side. I don't think it was ever sealed up correctly and now I have a gaping hole in the underbelly. Can you describe the cut a bit more? I know you said they dealer cut it all the way across which would leave a long cut. But are the other three sides still attached to the bottom?

RE: Home toilet

most RV toilets are already water saving by design. I think mine uses about a quart (.946 L) to flush.

RE: Leaving outside camper lights on?

Just left mine on by accident this last weekend. walked out of the camper in the morning and noticed it on. I think most of them are left on accidentally.

RE: Water tank issue

do you maybe have small ids that might have run the faucets when you were not looking? I know it took more than a few trips when my trailer was new before we all got used to the idea of hyper conserving water.

RE: First Trip Tips

The only thing I like to add is to leave the safety chains connected until the tires are blocked, the hitch is disconnected and you a sure the trailer is not going to roll away.

RE: Sewer smell outside camper when toilet is flushed

Climb up on the roof and sit by the vent. Have someone flush the toilet. You will either quickly prove or disprove the vent on the roof as the problem.

RE: Lighting(side marker lights)

maybe go look at others at the dealership and see if they have lights. Maybe the factory forgot to put them on yours.

RE: dumb question about RV ovens

I saw an easy helper idea I think from DutchmenSport. Tape a small tealight candle to a paint stirring stick. Light the candle and slide it under the pilot. Then you can stand while hold the pilot button in for a minute. You can also maybe use a mirror to position the candle and not have to stoop down. Once lit leave it on until you leave.

RE: Secondary propane tank

Many regulators have a lever or knob to turn that indicates which tank the regulator is monitoring. If the lever is in the wrong position it will give a false red or green indication.

RE: Norcold moisture reduction heater switch

According to the linked guide from Soundguy it's the divider heater. #8 circled on the last page.

RE: Ceiling Bubbling up

I think it's possibly the ceiling panels moving when driving. I pull my Jayco off road (very slowly) and there are wrinkles where two panels are joined and covered with a thin strip. It looks like the panel slides back opening the gap and then when it slides into the gap again the vinyl slowly peels and bunches up rather than sliding under the strip.Could this be what you are seeing?

RE: Bad odor in the KITCHEN when taking a shower in the BATHROOM

The air admittance valve like Dutch_12078 posted is in the cabinet under the sink by the P trap. If failed it will let smell out regardless of water in the trap. It's also fairly inexpensive at just under six dollars. Link

RE: replacement jack rod

I would second something like Home Depot.But what is it used for? Can you use the shorter rod and just use the tongue jack to add or remove tension?

RE: Eternabond and skylight screws

Your seals look good. I would no go the route of cutting and adding Dicor, that would be taking a step backwards. If you want to be really sure then cut out 2x2 squares out of eternabond and paste them on top of each screw head. Now the heads are double sealed and unless someone stands on and grinds their shoe on top of a screw the eternabond will hold. Also did you use a roller of some sort to really smash the eternabond onto the roof? Your edges don't seem to show any sealant squeezing out so I wonder if you pressed down hard enough. You want to make sure it is pressed down really firmly or it will leak.

RE: Why is this TT fiberglass when the other are aluminum?

Stand back from it and look at it from an angle. It really looks like delamination just above the aluminum on the front. Hopefully it's just a trick from the camera.

RE: Dry camping

Dry camping, leaving for the day? I turn off the water pump and lock the door.
