RE: Distance between the two RV?

I dont want to hear my neighbors TV through the walls. If I wanted that I would get a hotel room.

RE: Lighter weight power cord

I dont really think this cord is any lighter than my factory cord but it is way mor flexible and a lot easier to handle. My old cord was like wrestling with an Anaconda and even worse when it got colder out. This new one rolls right up tight amazon 50 RV cord

RE: Question on Fantastic Fan

Turning ther fan switch to 0 should just turn off the fan. It should not affect the thermostats or the rain sensor. Thats the way mine function anyway, or at least the way they used to function. One of mine has a mind of its own now so I just pulled the fuse out of it. We rarely ever use them anyway. Its either AC or furnace for us.

RE: Rodent repellant

Isn't the best solution to find the points of entry? There should be none in a well built RV but at the worst there should only be a very few possibilities. We have stuffed every crevice we can find with steel wool. Our sliding door for the bedroom has wires going down through the far back of it right into the basement area. I cant find a way to get to it without damange and thats where i think they come in.

RE: Rodent repellant

We tried the peppermint oil a few years ago and had the worst year ever so we never tried it again. We tried the hedge apple in our basement once a long time ago to try getting rid of spiders and they just built webs right on top of them. LOL

Rodent repellant

Just opened up the trailer this morning from its long winter nap to check things over and start getting ready for camping season. I found one single mouse turd in a drawer. I have tried all of the gimmicks over the years in the boat and camper. Always found the best thing was just good ole Bounce dryer sheets. For the last 3 years I have been also using a product called Grandpa Gus's Mouse Pouches in addition to my dryer sheets and noticed that we didnt have any mouse **** at all. Last fall I decided to just use the mouse pouches. Same results. one single little turd is a victory to me. To give a little background my trailer is parked on a farm right by a machine shed full of farming equipment including a feed grinding mill, so mice and rats are a staple of the area. I have no affiliation to this company. Just thought I may be able to help out fellow RVers

RE: Winter Battery Storage

I just leave my trailer plugged in year round. Last battery survived 10 years. It is quite common to see -30F here in the winter

RE: tire time

I went with these just a month ago. So far so goot. I know they artent the best tires in the world, but they fit my budget and sure beat the tires that were on there since 2005. Carlisle Radial Trail HD tires linkhttps://www.amazon.com/Carlisle-Radial-Trail-Trailer-Tire-235/dp/B01M0OCK5G

RE: Roof reseal

BIG SNIP FOR SPACE Thanks for any help you can give a guy. Hi, On your EPDM roof, SUPER HUGE SNIP FOR SPACE Hope this helps John I dont know what to say here. That has got to be, hands down, the very best response I have ever gotten on any forum in all of the years of the interwebs. You answered everything that I asked with great technical thought. Thank you very much for restoring a little faith in humanity.

RE: Roof reseal

What is the oem roof made from? It is EDPM roof What rubber roof paint? One of the best is Heng’s. Not sure what the brand is. I got it at Menards. One of my customers did his about 5 years ago with the stuff and it is holding up great.

Roof reseal

My trailer is getting some age on it and has never had any roof maintenance done so I think it is time to get it done. I had a vent start leaking on our last camping trip so I figured why not just do everything. First question it what is the best way to remove all the old calk around all the vents and stuff. second...about how many tubes of goop will I need. Its a 35 foot 5th wheel with single AC unit, 3 powered vents, sky light, and 3 plumbing vents. I hate to be short half way through the job but also hate to have a bunch of extra sitting around. I also have the rubber roof paint. Should it be painted before calk or after. Thanks for any help you can give a guy.

RE: Electric tongue Jack blows fuses

Dont think in all my years I ever saw a jack with a fuse. I just put an electric jack on my car trailer and the instruction had me wire directly to the battery. My landing gear on my 5th wheel has self resetting a circuit breaker in line but thats the most I ever saw

RE: 50-amp electrical cable plugs in, the black screw “ring”

People actually use that thing? I have never in the 10 years I have had my trailer actually used it.
