bedroom slide keeps coming out

While sitting in storage my bedroom slide seems to keep working its way out. It happened one over last winter it came out about a foot and then got snowed on and froze so I had to leave it till it melted off and dries. Now thisd winter i have noticed 3 times now that it is out a few inches. This morning I was walking the dog and looked over and there it was out again. I went and grabbed the keys and opened it up and went in and turned on the system and ran it in again. This is a hydraulic system where 1 switch runs all three slides out one at a time. Any ideas what might be going on here? This is getting to be quite an irritation.

RE: water heater anode rod

I took it out and tossed it. Replaced it with a valve. When the weekend it over I open the valve and drain the water heater. This also makes winterizing easier as well. Been doing this for years and never had an issue. We are regular campers and really dont need to drain it but if you dont camp ofter you want to drain it anyway just so the water doesnt turn nasty and stink up the camper as soon as you run the hot water

RE: Make moving the recliners easier

I ditched the Lazy Boys cause they were so heady and a pain to move. They were also just wide enough to catch the trim on the slide and if you didnt get them up tight to the wall it would catch and it even ripped the trim off once. I replaced them with metal framed gliders. They arent nearly as comfy but they are lights and easy to move.

fresh water tank overflow syphoning tank dry

Let me start by stating that my overflow in a tube sticking out the bottom of the underbelly of the trailer. I have always just filled my tank untill water starts to flow out of the tube. It would always drain off the little bit that got in before I could pull the hose. For some odd reason this year when i do this the water will sit there and keep running out and will syphon the tank nearly dry before it stops running. Anyone have any idea what is going on. I'm thinking about installing a valve on the end but I fear that I would forget to open it and make even more problems

RE: Remove drainage valve?

Just buy a cheap pex cutter. You will need it again down the road anyway. Then just replace it with a quick connect PEX valve that requires no tools. Click here for valve

RE: Parking Light with Jumper

I hate when people leave lights on all night. If you are scared of the dark stay in town. The only reason I turn on a light is to take the dog out in the middle of the night. The only reason for that is so that he can see the steps and it gets turned back off as soon as we get back inside

RE: Parking Light with Jumper

Some people think it looks cool. Its not for me but if someone else wants to do it thats fine by me unless the rear of their trailer is 10 feet from my campfire or they leave them on all night. I would much rather see a red glow than these people that leave their scare lights on all night on both sides of the trailer lighting up the whole campground

RE: Battery replacement brands

Just tossing out a number with no data to back it up but 80 - 90% of all batteries are made by Johnson Controls and just put the different brands labels on them to ship tp stores. That being saif I just replaced my Farm&Fleet group 27 marine battery that was 6 years old this spring. I think it would still be good but I think it froze solid this past winter when it got down to 50 below. I leave my trailer plugged in 24/7/365 as well

RE: Front bedroom height?

I am 6'1" and in my Cedar Creek I have about 8 to 10 inches of headroom. If I go downstairs in the living room area I have to stand on a chair to reach the A/C filter

Red carpet stains no more

Last years camping season was a tough one for me. My dog was diagnosed with cancer and in his final days he was getting sick a couple times a day. Most of the time I was able to catch him and move him to the tile floor where it could just be wiped up. Every once in a while it would happen in the middle of the night and I wouldnt catch it till morning. This left me with 4 red stainds on my light tan carpet from the die in his food. I tried everything to clean them out. Every stain remover and home remedy was a waste of time. Last week I contacted an auto carpet restoration expert. He told me the only thing that he ever saw work on red stains was a product available from Amazon called Red Relief. Its a 2 part system that you mix in a spray bottle and go through this whole process with damp towels and an iron and then use a rug docotor to suck it all out. The purpose of this was to pass along the info that red stains are a thing of the past. "Red Relief"from Amazon.
