RE: Looking at a 2001 Cedar Creek 30 RLS. small leak

Aluminum frame so that wont be an issue. There is still wood in the floor and inside wall board. So it could be an easy fix or a lot of work.

RE: conversion of camper vans to 4 wheel

There used to be companies thst did that. As i remember it added about 10K to the base price of the van. I assume this is Ford based? So searching out front axle assembly, transfer case from a donoe truck should be doable. Just takes a lot of time to engineer mounts etc to connect everything. Lastmissue would probably be the computers. Getting them to understand the changes could bea daunting task.

RE: Should my 5th wheel have shock absorbers?

Still not offered as standard on the smaller trailers. Heck our 2002 Arctic Fox did not have them either.

RE: Umpqua Lighthouse Campground & Satellite TV

Like most of the coast parks there is lots of trees. Dont expect to get a signal unless your really lucky.

RE: Should my 5th wheel have shock absorbers?

Should it? Probsbly notespeciallyin thst size and age. Will it help to have them? Yes. But unless it has shock mounts it is unlikely if it was even offered as an option.

RE: 1998 Fleetwood Avion Valve

There should actually be three valves. One each for how and cold low point drains and one for the potable water tank.

RE: Starcraft 14 R/T furnace system questions

A typical 35K BTU propane furnace will burn approx 1/2 gallon of gas per hour. I just filled one of my propane tanks and it took only 5 gallons after three weeks. Battery is going to be your biggest problem. A typical 12VDC deep cycle battery might last one night IF your really careful with power management. Your going to then need a way to fully recharge the battery.

RE: Privacy curtain

Accordion doors are a much nicer alternative to a curtain. Big box stores have them along with other places. You might also want to check with the MFG and see what they have as an option and where they get them. Then call their supplier and try to buy one directly from them.

RE: Water coming into the slideout

This is why I always leave my slide side just a but lower. That makes absolutely no sense? If your slide seals were properly designed by the manufacturer and are in good shape and actually sealing the opening there should be no moisture leaking in. To the OP. I would suggest that you do a Seal Test after a thorough inspection of the seals. Any nicks or cracks in the seals can allow water in.

RE: cell phone booster

T Mobile is your biggest problem. Their service is just too limited for long term Rvers. Most go with Verizon for the superior coverage in almost all of the US. There is a current thread running covering amplifiers that you might want to look up HERE

RE: 1985 companion by kit, 236..need some advice

Your biggest concerns will be all appliances work, leaks causing wood rot, roof condition. At that age the roof is likely toast, possibly water leaks and frame rot, plus good chances the refer is DOA or on it's last legs. Roof replacement alone could cost you more than the trailer is worth. New refer is easily a thousand dollars. Wood rot could make it a total wreck good knot for scrap.

RE: 5th Wheel with 1 ton truck weight advice needed

The State of Washington licensed my 8800 GVWR truck to 12K! I pay annual tonnage on that amount and that is the amount legally allowed on the truck in all 50 states. Chris Just because the state of Greed, ERR Washington licenses your truck to carry 12,000 pounds does not make it prudent to do so. All they want is your money for the unrealistically high tags your willing to pay for your truck.

RE: Musty smell from dash vents

Plugged drain tube is my first guess. That seems to be the vast majority of the cases anyhow.

RE: Cellular Amplifier & Antennae

Clicky I have had an amplifier in the fiver for the past three years. To attach the magnetic mount antenna, i simply glued down a piece of painted steel using lots of Dicor to the roof. When i am setting up, i clumb the ladder, drop the antenna on the plate, and feed the wire thru the slide out bulb seal then complete opening the slides. Mine is totally wireless, in other words there is an inside antenna and an outside antenna. It comes with a power supply so all i need to do is plug it in to 120VAC and turn it on. Generally you will not need amplification if you are close to major cities or along major highways. The times I need it is when we are hosting several miles off the highway or in very remote far west locations. Then i am lucky to get 1G service early in the morning. The closest towers are miles away with lots of mountains in the way. And nothing Will help in those situations.

RE: baking stone

UN-glazed floor tile from Lowes, Home Depot or any flooring store or Pampered Chef should still sell pizza stones. Be sure it is UN-glazed why do you say... UN-glazed? Because glazed floor tiles tend to explode, sometimes with disasterous results. An unglazed tile is cheap easy to find and very durable.

RE: 5th Wheel with 1 ton truck weight advice needed

With fifth wheel towing it is not how much you can tow but how much pin weight you can put in the bed of your truck before overloading components. Truck weighs 8000 according to you or scales? GVWR is what? 9900? 10,200? If 9900, then you have a scant 1900 pounds of load carrying capacity before exceeding the mfg GVWR.

RE: Newbie Installing Satellite

Not uncommon for things to be miswired. Run the coax thru a window and directly to the sat in on the back of the receiver and one cable from to tv to the tv and see what happens. If it works, then you have a cableing issue inside the trailer. I assume your using a ground antenna of some sort? Is it actually designed for dish and not directv?

RE: Electrical Shock!!

Bad ground. Are you using an adapter? Very common for cheap ones to fail.
