RE: Has anyone replaced a hot water tank with an instant hot?

I installed the "Hot Rod" electric conversion in my 6 gallon tank. I like it. When the RV is plugged in, my water is hot without firing the LP! Most of the on demand heaters have a large electric or gas pull to heat the water on demand. Brian

RE: Smaller Class C

I have found that the tiny shower works best for me if I sit down on that seat portion. I'm 6'3", standing in that shower is what I would call roughing it but it gets the job done. Brian

RE: Lillys landing branson mo

Lots of people use the salmon eggs and plastics. Use clear mono line of 4 lb. test or so. Lilly's Landing sells everything on site at their store you will need, including the out of state license. They also have guides running out of the resort. Have Fun!

RE: Eternabond and fiberglass roof

Eternalbond tape, like all similar products, is only as good as the surface it is applied to. IT MUST BE CLEAN ! If you are really paranoid about leaks (paranoia can be GOOD is some cases !), remove that strip, clean underneath, apply butyl tape at the edge, re-install the screws (switch to stainless steel) with a bit of butyl tape around each one. This what they use on ocean going sail boats and they see a lot of water ! Although Eternabond tape is really good, the butyl tape and stainless steel would be a really good permanent fix. More work but the payoff is a sure thing without doubt.

RE: New Water Heater Won't Light

The answer is the gas valve is bad right out of the box. Will take it in for warranty work. They will not send the consumer a new valve, must go through a dealer. Brian

Thank you for answering the white wire question. I will re-check and try again. Thanks, Brian

New Water Heater Won't Light

This should have been all so easy, but so far, not so much. I installed a new Suburban SW6P manual light hot water heater. I can't keep the pilot lit. When I let go of the pilot switch the flame goes out. I even tried a different thermo coupler. The 1 difference I see on this heater verses the one I took out is this one has 2 small white wires behind the control valve. I don't know what these do? Any help is appreciated! Thank you, Brian

RE: Various Rv types and wind

Our 21' Class C, short wheel base is also terrible in strong winds. We won't drive it in over 20 mph winds period! We had a 17' travel trailer prior with weight distributing hitch. The wind didn't phase this rig towed with a suburban. So yes, short class C's can be white knuckles all day long. Brian

RE: Spare Tire Hanger

Found the solution. Does everything I want. It’s a Roadmaster Hitch-Mounted spare time carrier. You can look it up on Amazon or etrailer dot com. Only problem is the cost: $563. Yikes. I just looked at that "Road Master Spare Tire Carrier". That is Sweet. Pricey, but nice.

RE: Finding water leaks.

Could also be check valve between city water or tank water. Make sure you have the cap on the exterior city hose fitting on the outside of your camper.

RE: 100% Gasoline vs 10% Ethanol

The only downside to 10% is the fact that if the gas sits around very long it turns to junk (without a good stabilizer like Marine Stabil. I buy non e gas for my lawnmowers. This is it in a nutshell!

RE: Sealer goop on roofs

I shaved off the high spots of the dicor, then applied eternabond over the whole seam after cleaning with acetone. Been about 6 years now. Very pleased. Brian

RE: Intermittent failure to start.

Is the battery down? If not it could be the brake light switch on the pedal. There is a switch on the brake pedal that needs to be made by depressing the brake to complete the start circuit.

RE: Roof Rack-Class C, Anyone ?

Our factory roof rack must have been brushed by overhanging trees or something prior to our purchase. It was loose and several of the mounting screw holes leaked. I removed the rack and did a patch with eternabond tape, problem solved. Brian

RE: Class C roof damage

Check into enternabond products. They have a variety of products and they work. Eternabond is a great product and is available in 24, 36, and 48" rolls for large repairs. I think this could work well for partial replacement areas. Is fairly spendy, but worth it in my opinion. Brian

RE: What's the one thing that you have but hardly EVER use?

Television and/or DVD player. Watching the tube has absolutely nothing to do with camping. We enjoy spending about 13 hours a day outside weather permitting and it usually does. If the weather does happen to drive us inside we are far more likely to be reading, listening to music, napping or perhaps a little better than that or just chatting than watching a screen. :B I see motorhomes with 3 and even 4 TV's and have to wonder... what were they thinking? :h Oh well, different strokes. :C

RE: Dexcool vs. Universal coolant

I have flushed my Buick (Dexcool) and refilled with an anti freeze of my choice. Brian

RE: Trailer hitch on back of camper

Although it could be legal, is an insurance company going to offer up liability insurance should something go wrong?

RE: Generator Issue

A cheap fix that "can" work. Pour one or two cans of Seafoam in your gas tank depending on how much gas your tank holds and run your genny on this. Since it started to run properly, this will most likely take care of it. Brian
