RE: Outdoor latches

For those annoying sticky locks, go find some "Houdini", we used it year round at work and it never let us down. It smells like orange or citrus juice and you don't need a lot, just a one second squirt. http://www.houdinilocklube.com/

RE: Misplaced Keys

Well I guess it was bound to happen sooner or later with only one set of keys. Misplaced and of course she's all closed up for the winter with the door handles and deadbolts locked as well as the hatches. Any non destructive suggestions? I'm pretty sure the keys will turn up but DW wants something out of the trailer. Thanks for looking. Well that's what happens when you rely on one set of keys. Why don't you have a spare set that stays in the tow vehicle. I do, for boat and ATV and travel trailer.

RE: Swivel TV wall mount

Well a little apprehensive this morning, poking holes can be like poking an angry bear. Took a 1/16th bit and made sure only 3/4 of an inch was sticking out of the chuck. Then by luck I noted the staple holes used to staple the wall panel to the studs. Bingo. Did the left, center and right hole within about 3/4 of an inch of what I figured to be the center of the stud. Nailed center dead on. Used 3 #10 by 1" screws to hold the swivel mount to the wall. Tight as a snare drum, attached the TV and it swivels around nicely and parks tight against the wall. Thanks for all the tips. Makes life easy. That studfinder video was eye opening too.

RE: Swivel TV wall mount

Ya, I think that small TV weights about 2-3 lbs at the most.

RE: Swivel TV wall mount

Ok, thanks, that gives me a couple of options to start.

Swivel TV wall mount

I have a small 19 inch LED TV I'd like to mount to the wall where it says, "Mount LED TV here". I have the muti swivel mount, the part that gets attached to the wall is vertical with 3 screw holes. Now, question of the hour, any idea how wide the mounting plate behind the wall is? I've done the old "tap tap" to hear roughly where the center is, by the sounds of it, it's only a wall stud. Of course, call the company and it's not much help. I don't have a stud finder either. I suppose I could make a couple of tiny 1/16ths holes and hope for the best. Any pointers, thanks.

RE: GM announces their Electric Silverado half ton.

Unless someone invents trees that produce electricity when you're far away from charging stations, it will never be for me.

RE: Furrion 12 Volt Refrigerator Issues

I know it's not the right answer, but I avoid anything made by Furion.

RE: RV Cover

I lay mine inside down on dry grass in the afternoon after the morning dew is dried off. Fold the ends in, the sides in, and then lengthwise twice to the center long line. Then it gets folded front to rear, rear to front at the half way mark. Next fall you unroll it on top of the trailer and it's right side up.

RE: Need awning input...

Get yourself some earth anchors, there's various ones out there. I used 4 that holds down a 10 x 10 patio roof, been there for 5 years and has not budged an inch. Here's one. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Vortex-16-in-Steel-Folding-Ring-Spiral-Ground-Anchor-ANCFR16-ORG-A/202703690 and here's some more. https://www.rona.ca/en/shelterlogic-shelterauger-earth-anchors-30-in-4-pack-10075-330736988

RE: Unique Situation. What’s My Best Truck Option?

^So that’s a reason not to get a dd clutch? Any good single or dd should last a long time. You got a bad clutch, bad install or bad driver. A bad clutch during manufacture of the truck is possible, as for bad driver, I drove stick most of my life and never had a clutch adjusted or burned out.

RE: Disposable Razors Observation

Yes and the price of the disposables has gone through the roof, making an effort to go back to the electric shaver although it doesn't get quite as close.

RE: Unique Situation. What’s My Best Truck Option?

Installing a South Bend Clutch in my 4WD RAM was about $1200 - and everything is more in the Seattle area. Hmmm. I’m seeing the south bend clutches for $1500 dual disc. Then I’m also thinking install will be $1000-$1500 labor. Had one of those dual disc clutches in a 3/4 ton, didn't last 30K miles, they were made to take the rattle out of the transmissions in the 3/4 GM's, I put a single regular one in you only hear a bit of grumble on launch.

She should sleep with one eye open, karma has a bad habit of biting when you're not looking, lol.

RE: How to run exterior cable for wired backup camera?

Try to run it in the frame rails underneath all the way up to the firewall and then into the cab

RE: Looking for original 1987 M-19E Prowler manual

Easy enough to find where the fresh water tank is, walk around the outside and look for the gravity feed point, may have a small lid or similar to cover it. Most tanks are either under the bed or under one of the bench seats.

RE: Can a generator get rained on?

What does the owners manual say about it. Wind driven rain can get into some places, cause havoc and then you'll be wondering why things get rusty and don't work. A simple lawn chair cover with about 30 seconds of effort would alleviate that.

RE: Axle Service

Somebody is loading their pension account with your money. Even with all new parts, I can't see it getting that high.

RE: Battery Powered Lawn Mower

I'm sure most people have the capability of thinking and watching not to run over the cord, if you don't then go with a battery powered one or hire a landscaper

RE: Resealing windows?

We have a 2019 KZ and from what I have read on the internet it may have "dry fit" windows and the seals are leaking on a couple of them. I ordered some butyl tape that is 1/8" thick. The TT has corrugated siding and the gap between the window frame and low part of the siding is just over 1/4". Do I need to triple layer the tape? Can I double layer the frame and add small sections in the low spots of the siding for the 3rd layer? Yes that what I had to do for mine. Place the single layer all the way around onto the window frame itself and add appropriate sized small pieces to fill out the recessed areas on the trailer. When the butyl is warm, you can cut pieces lengthwise and roll them between your palms to make fat "worms" to fill in any gaps. Don't go gorilla tightening the screws, a little bit every day, some will ooze out you can slice off with a dull knife, gently. A good idea is to add a couple thin shims under the window frame from the inside opening to keep things square in the opening and it prevents the whole window from slowly sliding down.
