We have a white flat hose, that we don't use. Don't remember why for sure, but I think that it might be because it puts a taste in the water when used full time.
Dusty R 01/21/21 12:09pm Tech Issues

I grew up on a dairy farm. In the summer time we ran many hardware store garden hoses to several different areas watering livestock and chickens. We often drank from those hoses and never gave a thought about what the hose was made of. Now 50-60 years latter it's hard to find a hose that does not put a bad taste in the water when hooked to an rv. full time.

RE: solar

You also need to consider where you spend most of your time with your RV. For example, Michigan is 47th of the 48 continental states.

RE: Door lock Trimark 30-1050/030-2650

Thank you again enblethen, I might just have to go that route and get part#060-1650 and see what happens. Dusty R. Thanks for the insight. I look forward toseeing what you bought I looked at the latch that we used to replace the TriMark and there is no name on it. But if remember right it was not a TriMark. Dusty

RE: Door lock Trimark 30-1050/030-2650

In 2015 we bought a new Itasca in Michigan. A few months latter the Trimark door latch broke, we went to an Itasca dealer in Florida and got it replaced under warranty. In a few weeks it also broke. Then we went to a small RV parts place and bought a new latch, but a different make. It's not as comfortable to use, but it is still working. If I don't forget I'll look and see what make it is.

RE: Calling on Solar Techies

I suggest that everyone who is planning to build a solar system to first check and find how much available sunshine in the area you plan using it in. For example, Michigan ranks 47th out of the 48 continual states in available sunshine.

RE: Modify OR Access Easily Over cab Bed for the Older Camper

I made one out of 1x3 oak. Used it for 13 years.

RE: Plumbing pressure relief

And it does not matter where you put it, or what position it is in. Just put a Tee in the cold water line and plumb the tank into it, figure out at what pressure the pump turns on at, and add air pressure to 2 lb. below that.

RE: Plumbing pressure relief

I like installing a small bladder type pressure tank. It makes the whole water system work nicer.

RE: Changing Spare Tire

Maybe try loosening the lugs slightly then driving a very short distance.

RE: Best tire inflator for dually tires

We tow a tandem axel flat bed trailer taking our antique tractor to shows. One I got the trailer out and check the tires with a pressure gauge, they were OK, and I loaded my tractor. It was a few hours later before we left. Then we stopped at a grocer store and while my wife went in I checked the load, and found a soft tire. Apparently checking the air caused a valve to start leaking. So now I only check tires with a radiant thermometer. Dusty

RE: Durability of Command strip hooks and hangers?

In our stick & brick I made a hanger to hold a plastic bag that things are put in at the cash register to carry home. I used the Command strips to monte that bag holder to the cabinet door under the kitchen, used to hold wast paper. I was concerned if the strips would hold. I mounted the bag holder about a week ago and it's still holding. I've made about a dozen of the bag holders/hangers. Dusty

RE: Lifting my class C

I've raised garage door openings. Maybe I should have said that some garage door opens can be raised.

RE: Changing Spare Tire

I added a remote pump to my hydrulic jack so I don't have to lay under our mh while jacking it up to change a tire. I also bought a 20 volt 1/2" impack dril motor for removing the lug nuts. I've always been able to get them off but time is catching with me, I turned to 79 a couple of months ago. When I bought it I hopped I would never neet to use it, but I used it to repair my zero turn lawn mower this summer. Had to take the pulley off the pump and there was no way I could hold it from turning. Dusty

RE: No hot water during a freeze

Water that has been heated will freeze faster than cold water, it has less air entrained in the water than the cold. What if you have 2 pans of water, one has been heated, but both are now the same temperature. Will they now both take the same amount of time to turn to ice?

RE: GFCI at shore power tripping

You may know this but I'm going into it anyway. A GFCI measures the flow of current between the hot and neutral wires, if some current flows to ground then the GFCI trips. So somewhere you have some current flowing to ground.

RE: Electric space heaters

There's 2 things that I don't like about the portable electric heaters. 1 It's close quarters in an RV to begin with, so there is never a good place for a portable electric to begin with. 2 The thermostat is on/in the heater so it senses the temperature of the unit before the room/rv. In our last 2 mh I have installed a Toe Kick heater under the kitchen sink/cupboard. They use a thermostat just like a furnace. I wire it to the same breaker as the air conditioner, leaving the AC hooked to the t-stat with the LP furnace. Now the electric heat/furnace and AC can't both run at the same time. If they try to the breaker will trip.

RE: Ultra Sound wireless LP tank sensor , Bluetooth to phone app

Looks interesting, I wonder how well it will hold up to the spray and grime from the road when on the bottom of the tanks on mh's. And how much they cost?
