RE: Storing My Diesel Truck Over Winter Advice

Use the maintainer and Biocide.

RE: Black water tank health concerns and questions

You are no more at risk of these tanks than you are from the sewer plumbing under your house.

RE: Schwintech slide system

That slide system has been revised several times and the latest iteration works well. Mine is 4 y/o and has never had an issue. I would not hesitate to buy another.

RE: Power tongue jack head "partial rotation"

After you take the weight off the jack, find the set screw at the base of the head. Loosen it and rotate the head assy back into position.

RE: Side door latch/lock won't close without assist...

It's a $25 item - just replace it. Which item is $25? A new complete door latch from TriMark is ~$150+. Are you suggesting that just a part of this latch needs to be replaced? If so, I wasn't thinking that was an option but would be good. Please elaborate. Thanks I paid $26 for the entire assy just to get a unit key'd like my other door. Has worked perfectly for 4 years so far. In retrospect, it probably wasn't a TM but it looks and works exactly like the one I replaced. I would buy one again.

RE: Water heater temperature

FYI, 5 gallons would be a lot in our experience. We spent last week without any sewer connection so I had to get creative. The only thing that went in the grey tank was shower water and after my wife and I took showers, I drained the tank into a container every morning and found we only used about 5 gallons total. So ~2.5 gallons for a Navy shower (and we could probably do better).

RE: Slide out question

When your slide starts to move, do both sides move at the same time or does one end move a little before the other end starts moving? If it's the latter, you probably have a broken shear bolt. Look for a 1/4" bolt going through the shoulder of the gear. If you only see it on one side of the gear, it has sheared. You can get a replacement shear bolt anyplace they sell lawn maint. equip. parts (snow blowers, rototillers, thatchers, etc.) It's also possible the pinion gear itself is broken but that's much more rare.

RE: Replacement catalytic converter

A Prius CC costs about 8X that of an avg F150 (more precious metals) because they have to work efficiently at lower temps due to the vehicles start/stop capability.

RE: Reset PW

OK, thanks for that. Problem is, the "Forgot your password" option on RV.com doesn't work. They don't ever send anything to your email.

Reset PW

Trying to reset my password so I can use something other than this lousy Goodsam portal. Going to the "RV.com" portal, I used the "Reset password" function but never get an email back. My email has not changed in 20 years.

RE: New bathroom sink replacement bead sealer

100% pure silicone is an excellent adhesive and is used extensively in aircraft assemblies and electronics to adhere and "rugadise" parts so they stay in place in high vibration applications - especially helicopters. I used silicone to bond the porcelain sink in our last TT and it held firm for 13 years till we sold it.

RE: Electrical Help pls

Reflectix is for heat infiltration and isn't intended for cold. Details are on its packaging. So maybe find a better insulation material to put in its place and it could make a big difference! Reflectix actually works for heat and cold. Preventing heat from going out still means the inside is warmer. Many of us have tried it. It works. It has minimal effect (again, read the manufacturers info: for temps over 70 degrees). Pretty much anything, even a blanket draped will work better.

RE: Electrical Help pls

Once the fuse blowing issue is solved, I expect you'll be dealing with battery capacity. Heating appliances will draw your battery down very quickly. Yes, I am bummed. I don't know how to heat ourselves at night. Below 40-degrees and it's downright uncomfortable. We have a Little Buddy heater, but not for sleeping. We have Reflectix around the vinyl (we have a pop-up TC), but that's not enough. Back to the drawing board. Reflectix is for heat infiltration and isn't intended for cold. Details are on its packaging. So maybe find a better insulation material to put in its place and it could make a big difference!

RE: Got the insurance money but I can't I do this myself?

I replaced some of mine myself - it was easy. Shipping was crazy expensive because it's over sized so I made the 5 hour drive to get that and a new bathtub (bad install caused cracking) from a dealer near the factory. The factory cut the 16' length in half so it would fit in my truck. All in all, I paid myself about $60/hour in savings.

RE: Residential refrigerator outside temperature below 40°

When it gets down to 40, or roughly the temp set point of the fridge area, the fridge wont run enough to keep stuff in the freezer section frozen. I don't think the fridge "shuts down" but it has no reason to run at those temperatures. The inside of the fridge temp is the controlling factor regardless of the outside temp. A residential refrigerator installed in an RV has three sides exposed to the inside temps, with only the back having some exposure to outside temps. Our fridge has worked fine with outside temps down to -4 deg.F and just the lower vents blocked off. LP/electric absorption fridges are much more effected by outside temps, both unusually high or low. The OP is talking about his fridge being in 40 degree temps - around all sides. At least that's the way it's written. My point is, if it's colder on the outside of the fridge than it is on the inside, it's not going to run because it doesn't have to! I believe the OP was asking about a standard residential compressor refrigerator. Not sure why RV absorption refrigerators have been introduced in the discussion. Either way, it's the same principle.
