RE: Winterizing black and gray tanks

I usually add one gallon of pink stuff to each tank after all of the other winterizing tasks are completed. It doesn't cost much and is cheap insurance. Valves closed of course.

RE: My water heater drain plug is metal, is that a problem?

Might want to consider replacing the anode rod yearly with threads wrapped with teflon tape even tho the rod itself has plenty of life in it if it truly is rusting.

RE: "All-terrain" step stool??

Amazon has one by Camco with adjustable legs from 7.5 to 9 inches.

RE: Replacement Water Pump

Be careful to not get too high a flow pump. The reason is since most demands are small, even showering, the pump can come on, quickly satisfy the pressure requirement, shut off then have to come on again, etc.

RE: Fresh water tank drain.

Don't know where the drain is on your rig but it should be right under the tank. Calls for someone to crawl under the rig and look up. I vote for an empty FW tank. The pink stuff may be hard do totally get rid of next Spring.

RE: Home - Waste Dump

I'm thinking the plumber would decide that but I think ours is at least four inches; probably more like 6.

RE: Smaller Trailer - King Bed?

We have twin beds in our 27 foot TT which is the same square feet of mattress space as a king but better because movement is not transmitted to the other sleeper.

RE: Hanging pictures

Did you use four Command strips per picture? Wood frames plus bouncing puts a load on the strips.

RE: Pensacola area... stuff to do?

Do a Google search for `Pensacola tourism' and read on.

RE: What's in your tool kit? What about other must-haves?

GPS. Tire pressure gauge. I like the digital ones.

RE: cleaning 7-pin receiver connector on truck

In the old days I used to drill out the female connectors to get rid of corrosion. Also try spraying Corrosion X into the male connectors.

RE: Having Difficulty Finding Replacement Roof Vent Covers

Any chance Jayco could identify them using the VIN? Once replaced I would recommend Maxxair or other covers over the covers. Keeps the sun off and allows the small covers to be open in the rain and/or underway. I just checked a very old RV parts catalog and found Vent Mate lids that look a lot like yours. Try Ventmate-products.com

RE: Snow Birding

If possible it might be a good idea to stay one month at each of several places before committing to several months at one place. Emphasis on the `if possible'.

RE: New to RVs.....A Few Newbie Questions

You can spend some valuable time searching this Forum for various topics one of which might be the make/model of the RV you are considering. Someone has probably already purchased it and spent some time in it so you can get experience and not even have to leave your house.

RE: Hot water tank drain plug

Flush with something like a Tank Saver from CW or Camco Tank Rinser.

RE: Vax Passports

How about when the doctor's office asks to see your Medicare card and other insurance coverage?

RE: Suggestions for a Weight Distribution Hitch

X2 on Bob213. I like the Equal-i-zer because of its simple design and no chains.

RE: 3rd AC

Do you have Maxxair (or other) covers over the roof vents?

RE: how to make a Towed Car Protection Shield

One experienced RVer made one out of plywood.

RE: RV roof vent cover

Were the covers open while driving? If so, they can vibrate from the wind pressure and disappear. Either keep them closed or install Maxxair covers. I'm surprised you never installed them heretofore.
