RE: Condensation line behind refrigerator

I was able to access mine through an electrical receptacle that just happened to be on the wall that is part of the refrigerator enclosure. I was able to pull the receptacle box which provided a hole just large enough for me to get my hand and arm through. I couldn't see what I was doing but was able to take loose and re-secure the tube by feel and some curse words.

RE: Exhaust Brake ???

Maybe at higher speeds the brake pedal must be depressed to engage it. Just a guess... Another thought- did you have the cruise control engaged ? My exhaust brake doesn't always play nice when the cruise control is engaged.

RE: %&$# RV Refrigerator

I remember reading a post several years ago where the drain tube in the refrigerator leading to the outside was pulling in hot air as they traveled down the road. The RV'er plugged the drain tube while travelling and then unplugged it when they reached their destination. Our Dometic refrigerator varies in temp throughout the day even when sitting. It will be 31 in the am and as hot as 42 during the day when the sun is shining on the side where the refrigerator is located. We've never had food go bad due to the temp variance.

RE: Trailer Brake Wear

The wear is uneven but barely noticeable between the 4 axles.

RE: Class A gas w/toad help

A buddy has a Hurricane by Four Winds MH. He tows a jeep CJ-7 with it.

RE: TPMS failures

I don't have a TPMS on any of my vehicles but I have access to a fleet of vehicles at work with factory TPMS. So far four of these vehicles have needed sensors replaced and two have need the main control unit replaced. Fords & Chevys. All have less than 10,000 miles. On one of the Ford Escapes it has gotten so bad that we don't even take it in for service any more. We do like everyone should do we check the pressure in all tires several times each month.

RE: Main Slide Shreaking When Extending?

On mine this happened twice. First time is was a piece of sheet metal that surrounded one of the rams. It would rub against the ram as the slide moved out. I bent the metal a little and it stopped. Second was the top of the slide out rubbing against one of the light fixtures due to ceiling panel sagging. I used longer screws to remount the light fixture and remove the sag from the ceiling panel.

RE: Boondock campers with no plumbing?

Most manufacturers build based upon certification by RVIA and ANSI codes. In fact some campgrounds only allow RVs with these certification stamps. The key to this is "self contained". When boondocking a self contained unit provides holding tanks for waste water.

RE: Volkswagen ??

This sort of thing has been going on since a caveman traded a stone ax for some fire from the fire merchant.

RE: I want to add a hot water recirc line to my trailer

Why not just carry an extra 5 gallons of water to throw into the fresh water tank to refill what is lost. And carry a small "Blue Boy" tank to empty the grey water for more capacity while dry camping.

RE: Ceiling fabric hanging loose

It sounds like the same material used on some auto/truck ceilings. Once the adhesive gives way between the fabric and the foam it is nearly impossible to get anything to stick. I tried to solve it on one of my trucks with no success. I took it to an upholstery shop and he said the only sure way to fix it is to remove the foam as well as any debris left by the foam, then use a sealer on the ceiling base material and the cloth/leather to encapsulate the old adhesive. Once the sealer has dried then use the 3M contact adhesive spray on new foam and the old material. He did all of this and the ceiling material stayed up until I sold the vehicle several years later.

RE: How/Where Do You Inflate Your Tires?

X3 on the Craftsmen compressor. Just used it over the weekend to pump up to 120 PSI.

RE: generator storage

I carry two Honda 2000i generators. They are carried in the pickup bed, with a logging chain with padlock and one inch cable lock. When in use, I secure them to the landing gear and frame of the 5th wheel during the day and into the evening. Then I let them cool down and put them in the cab of the truck. The vents on the gas caps are turned to off so no gas smell.

RE: Covered versus Outside Storage Cost

I have stored two different RVs in uncovered storage. The first one for 16 years and the current one is going on 21 years. Both held up well with no leaks until they reached 15 years old. I resealed all of the seams and no problems since. With good preventative maintenance (which I didn't do) the roofs will not leak unless damaged. Now I check the seams each year and plan to recoat the roof every 5 years. Here in Southern California there's no need for covered storage. Both RVs looked brand new with a good wash and wax.

RE: Bathtub?

One of the inflatable or cot type portable tubs would be your best option. Very few RVs can be equipped with a good sized tub since most manufacturers build for folks who travel in RVs and water plus space is at a premium. If you don't plan to travel much you might look into a park model TT. They can be towed from park to park but not as easily as a regular TT.

RE: Awning Spring

Look on youtube there are videos showing how to adjust the tension. It can be dangerous so be sure to follow the instructions. It's possible you have a broken spring.

RE: New FW, Problems adding Up

You'll be surprised by how well the dealer will be able to take care of the shower problem. The fiberglass shower surrounds are very flexible so it makes it easy to get a new one in place. All of the repairs should be taken care of by the dealer. Be sure to take good notes and photos of all of the problems before you take it in to the dealer. Then document any problems if you aren't satisfied with the repairs. You need a good paper trail in case you have to take legal action to get problems resolved.

RE: California coast RV park near dog beach?

Rincon Parkway north of Ventura, CA. is a county run campground. It is a first to come, first to get a site operation. It has access the the beach with no dog restrictions other than pick up after them. Strictly boondocking at it's best with beautiful views of the ocean, channel islands and lots to do in Ventura and Santa Barbara. It is tough to get a spot for the weekend unless you arrive on Wednesday or Thursday morning at the latest.
