RE: ? L E D taillights

This is what I replaced the incandescent units with. I could have simply replaced the lamps with LED's but this was FAR BETTER! https://i.imgur.com/socupPol.jpg This is what I used on my 1984 Komfort, I can testify that they are super bright. However, the brightness comes with a cost.. Less life. Yep, I HAVE had to replace 3 modules out of 4 in less than 5 yrs of very little use compared to what they should last. I will say though the replacement modules so far have been better in life. Considering just how expensive these ones are they should outlast the RV life and buying individual replacements is super insanely priced. I would suggest buying an extra two bay "tail, turn, stop" ASSEMBLIES while you are at it so you have a set of spares to replace any module that quits while on the road. https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/71xdvuUskjL._AC_SL1500_.jpg height=300 width=300 The two bay costs around $47-$50 and single "replacement" modules can cost $38-$40 each. You can also buy drop in plug and play replacements if you have the Bargman #84 frame.. https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/51NfFNS3T9L._AC_.jpg height=300 width=300 Which run $25-$30 each.. You will not find these at your local Walmart so keeping a spare is a wise idea.. I used those same Bargman LED replacement modules on my truck camper last year after nearly being rear-ended by a semi. The driver got next to me and told me my brake lights weren’t working, but when I pulled over to check them, they were fine. Later on though, I noticed that when you were looking down at my brake lights from about the height a truck driver would be at, they seemed to be very dim during daylight hours. The replacement modules aren’t cheap, but they much, much brighter. Upgraded TC Taillights to LED :):)

RE: Frog in fresh water holding tank!

Assuming the OP isn’t pulling our leg, she’s probably talking about a tree frog. Those dang things can crawl and hang on to any surface, vertical, horizontal, or upside down. You wouldn’t believe some of the weird-a$$’ed places I’ve found those around and in our house. I wouldn’t leave it in the tank if it was me. I’d figure out a way to use the overflow line to fill the tank up till it was flowing out the fill port and hopefully float that thing out of there. :):)

RE: Electric black tank dump valve. Worth it?

If you don’t have an electric dump valve, how are you going to dump your black tank while crossing a bridge over the Chicago River? Those poor people on the boat below! :E Look out below! :):)

RE: System X Crystal Ceramic Coating

I still have about a half gallon of RedMax Pro to use up. Which shows you how old it is, since it isn’t named that anymore. That’s about as “miracle” a finish as I need. It and the Zep product that has replaced it aren’t miraculous, they just make the camper look pretty good for a reasonable length of time. That’s good enough for me. :):)

RE: Germs, viruses and fuel pump handles and doors

Gloves. Diesel pump handles are incredibly dirty from fuel. I don't want that on my steering wheel. Me too neither. I keep a pair of leather gloves in the door pocket just for that reason. They’re also slightly oversized on purpose so they’re easy to get on and off. They’re quite stained after using them for a few years, so that’s dirt and fuel that’s not on my hands and steering wheel. But, the best thing to protect yourself and others from infection is washing your hands often. Disposable gloves and masks are going to be the new plastic grocery bags if we overuse them. :):)

RE: Germs, viruses and fuel pump handles and doors

You don’t need to sanitize the pump handle before you touch it. Sanitize your hands afterwards. Use gloves if you want, but even that is not necessary if you will wash your hands afterwards. Some thought should be given to what is going to happen if everyone starts going through dozens of plastic gloves a day just because you need to touch some public surface when the most effective means of protecting yourself and others it to wash your hands with soap and water. Frequent hand washing is even more effective than frequent use of hand sanitizer. :):)

RE: Spittoon? in a shower Wolf Pup camper

Definitely a spittoon. I love the back porch, but having the kids sleeping right above your head must be pretty bad for the sex life. If there’s kids sleeping above you in the camper, you’ve already gotten all of that you’re gonna get. From that person, anyway. :):)

I have a feeling that if we ever have a real pandemic, we’re going to get a idea of what Medicaid For All will be like. That wasn’t a Freudian slip. :):)

RE: LOUD Transmission drone at 58-62MPH

I had the center driveshaft support bearing on an old truck start making some noise after a clutch replacement once. Man, that thing made some weird noises, and seemed to be influenced by how the driveline was loaded, or not. Took a while to find the trouble. :):)

RE: liquid roof

Wondering how you would replace a roof vent or a skylight with all the screws covered. Just drive under this bridge first. :B Can Opener Bridge :):)

RE: Your next outing??

Not sure how any TC owner can make to middle aged adulthood and not know that boondocking on public lands is allowed and encouraged for the most part. Regardless of what state they’re from, this is the TC forum, for Pete’s sake! Unless some posts got deleted that I didn’t see, I’m not sure how trespassing on private property even got brought into this. This is a good topic, I’d hate to see it get shut down. It would be best to drop this trespassing argument, as it is not what the topic was opened to discuss. :):)

RE: How do you get to your spare tire with the camper on?

Another thing to consider if you have a dually is: can you get the center cap off to access the lug nuts on the rear wheels? I had to throw an extra tool in the truck for mine. It’s a good idea to go through the motions of changing a tire at home once just to make sure you can do it. :):)
