RE: Who all makes aluminum sided aluminum framed TT’s?

Howdy! I had a Mobile Scout 5er and they Made them that way. Unknown if they still do. “Happy Trails” Chiefneon Mobile Scouts were made by the parent company Sunnybrook RV which was purchased by Winnebago quite a few years ago and are no longer made. Our Sunnybrook is going on 17 years old, is covered with smooth fiberglass gelcoat siding over aluminum framing, is still used by us regularly, and has never had any delamination at all. Our previous trailer was a 1997 Sunnybrook with aluminum siding over aluminum framing and it never leaked or had any problems at all. Barney

RE: Eternabond question

One of our long time members, JBarca, has posted an extensive thread over on the Sunline Trailer forum where he is a moderator. He repaired his whole trailer with Eternabond and shows, in pictures, exactly what you are wanting to know. You can see his posts here. Barney

RE: 120 days and counting

“and dump my gray water behind the trailer.” Hopefully I won’t be the camper after you. Snip... There should not be another camper after him since he is on his own property next to his home he is building. At least that is how I read his post. Barney

RE: Traveling in Winter

When we travelled from Michigan to Florida each January we would leave the trailer winterized until we reached a point South where we could count on it not freezing. That was usually someplace in Georgia or North Florida on the second night. We would take a couple of gallons jugs of water and keep them in the truck so they wouldn't freeze during the day and use for brushing teeth, making coffee, etc. We would use a bit of antifreeze for flushing the toilet for those midnight visits. There were a couple of campgrounds that we knew were open on the way down and would usually stay at them. The water was shut off but their restrooms were usually open and heated. They were also usually almost empty so we could most often find a spot right next to or very near the restroom. This worked very well unless the temps were VERY cold (below 0 deg F) when we would just take a hotel room for the night. We did this routine for about 17 or 18 years until a couple of years ago when we quit traveling. Barney

RE: Question on battery charging

I think this question fits better into the Tech Issues forum rather than DIY and that you will probably get more response there from 12V.Gurus. :W. Moving to Tech Issues from DIY. Barney

RE: 75 Speed Limit - How Fast

Another tip. Stop the preaching and the bragging. That will keep the flamers away and reduce my work load! :B Some really good advice buried in amongst other stuff in your posts above. Barney Hey Barney, didn't mean to flame, but guilty of teasing a little. I think we may have inherited from a forum that banned? It is easy to understand the heightened road rage on the roadways today, with attitudes doing the driving, and the ROW can mean DEAD right. Appreciate your hard work! I'm sure you are well paid! :B Jerry Jerry, I wasn't accusing you of flaming or talking about your post - but was adding to it. :B Barney

RE: Replacing furnature

We purchased a Lafer recliner chair from Brad & Hall about 10 years ago and it is very comfortable to both sit and sleep in. It is also very compact so it doesn't take all the room in the RV. Kind of pricy but well worth the cost in my opinion. We also replaced the uncomfortable sofa/bed in our trailer with a wall hugger, reclining, leather sofa from Costco. They have them on sale now and then and are of good quality. We have no need anymore for a 2nd bed in our trailer as all our kids are grown. Any overnight guests will be very comfortable in the reclining sofa. We also have two Stressless recliners in our sticks and bricks home that we have had since 2003. They also are very comfortable for both sitting an sleeping and are also pricy. We purchased them from a company in Tampa, Florida, while snowbirding down there, called Florida Leather Gallery.

RE: Undercarriage Storage

Have you seen these Lippert underchassis storage systems? Might be worth a look instead of re-inventing the wheel. :W Barney

RE: Water pump psi

I agree that the flow rate seems very low. I don't think I would use it but would get one like the one you already have. Barney

RE: Equal-I-zer spring bar question

I would get the 12000lb model. I would guess the tongue weight will be around 1100-1200lbs when it is loaded and ready to camp in. Barney

RE: OTR Mobile - GRRRR

It is in my phone - Galaxy S8+. I use it as a hotspot when we are camping all the time. Barney

RE: OTR Mobile - GRRRR

Snip... If AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon wanted to provide truly unlimited data with no caps, no throttling, no anything, at a reasonable price, they would do it themselves. They don't need resellers to sell their product. They already have! Check out Visible by Verizon. I have been on their network for the past year and have had no place that was not covered. Unlimited minutes, texts, and data with no speed cap ever. $40/month all in. No extra charges at all. Barney

RE: How to remove/prevent standing water at campsite???

Beware of adding too much fill to level out the property. That could cause the two large trees which are presently under water to die. Changing the ground level around tree roots can be fatal to the plant in some cases. This has happened to me. I think if I were in your situation, I would try putting in some drain pipe runs out to a place where the water can flow to. Could even be the gravel filled trench already mentioned. The grass can grow over it but the drain still works. This was our solution (perforated flexible drain pipe)and has been working great for about 20 years at our home. Fairly inexpensive repair also. :) Barney
