RE: Fixed toilet bowl seal

vinegar might have removed any crud that was keeping it from sealing. We clean with vinegar and fill with olive oil between trips.

RE: Help ANTS!

next time out put comet around your stabilizers to prevent them from crawling up onto the bottom of your trailer. We camped in Las vegas and this suggestion was printed right on our campsite map. It seems to work. For the ones you have now, go with newman fulltimer's suggestion.

RE: Damage after a tire blow out

Doubt you will find a LT tire in 14". If you want to stay with ST tires Maxxis probably is rated the highest. The Kumho tire mentioned above need 65#PSI. Make sure your rim will handle that. A 195-R14 is the correct replacement size for a 205/75/14 but TireRack does not carry them. A Hankook Radial RAO8 195-R14 is also becoming a well rated replacement but also requires 65# PSI but like the Kumho's is LR "D".

RE: Hot Water Heater Not Working

If it was bypassed and had no water and you tried to heat with electric you more than likely fried the electric element. Check for spider webs or other obstructions in your gas jet.

RE: Propane pigtail failure

Tanks are about 25.75" tall and 12.5" diameter. There is no way they are 29" tall! I do believe I might have had a rub problem on the tank cover. At one point I had a tank level gauge on that tank that might have pushed the line into the cover or made it bend more severely. Thanks Old-Biscuit!

RE: Grill Adapter/Connector

Very interesting that I can't find the Camco brass tee without the hose. I already have the hose. Chuck Try here: Just tee

RE: Propane pigtail failure

Don't understand why ball check valve did not work. We don't use much propane. This tank is the original (3 years old) and has never had any propane drawn from it. The other tank finally ran out and when the regulator switched over the hose ruptured. When I took the empty tank to get it refilled they put in 8.8 gallons. Did they over fill it or just rip me off?

Propane pigtail failure

I had a line on my second tank rupture. It was blowing propane so I shut it off and removed the bottle. The bottle still feels quite heavy like it still contains propane. I replaced the pigtail but I can't get the gas to flow. I tried it on the other side that I know works and still no flow. Is there something that has to be done to the valve or tank after a ruptured hose to make it work again? Could the tank have lost all the compressed air and only contain liquid (is that even possible?). A new 10 gal tank is about $130. here (filled) so I would like to get this to work if possible. Thanks!

RE: Equal-i-zer

When I had a problem I was told Progressive does not sell "parts" to upgrade a hitch. Something about the liability issue of a pieced together hitch. Plan on replacing the entire hitch.

RE: Need outlet wiring help. Can I use 220 volt wiring?

RoyB's post pretty much shows it all for you. Here's some extra reading material. RV Electric And take Mexicowanderer's advice and triple check before you plug you TT into it.

TST or TireMinder seem to get the most votes from what I've seen. I have TST flo thru on my TT and am happy with performance and customer service.

RE: ST205/75R/14C Tire Choices - Not Too Many Choices

The Kumho's are a metric tire size. The equivalent to a 205/75/14 would be a 195R14/70. Kumhos are usually "D" rated in that size and require 65 lb. psi. Make sure your rims can handle that. The 195"s are getting hard to find since TireRack quit carrying that size. Great tires though. A nother option is Hankook Radial RA08 195/R14 Tires also "D" rated.

RE: Do I need Java?

I've had it disabled for a LONG time and have yet to find a site I really needed it. I'm still waiting for someone to tell me it's safe to use again.

RE: Desert heat

Your refrig. will probably be far less able to handle the temp. Keep your drinks in an ice chest so you don't have to open the refrig. If temp. can't be kept low enough in refrig. transfer perishables to ice chest. Fans help to make you feel cooler while a/c is running. A/c can only do so much for an oven on wheels. The hotter it gets outside, the less it will cool the inside. Shade for refrig. side of trailer and a/c if possible. We live and camp in 100*+ temps. It's not like being in the mountains or on the coast. Prepare to be a little warmer than you probably would prefer.

RE: from La ,anahaim go grand canyon doubts

If you don't want to drive the 7 hrs. you could take I-40 and stop in Laughlin for the night. You would then enter the south entrance to the Grand Canyon. If you want to take I-15 (at least 1 extra hour) you could stop in Las Vegas and from there enter the north entrance.

RE: Who treats their diesel fuel?

10 years with Optilube and no problems. Older motors need the extra lubricity not found in ULSD fuel. Optilube XPD Might be all hype but I'm a believer....
