RE: seattle rv parks

I live there. There are tons of really lousy RV parks here - I mean BAD. The only place I would stay at is Lake Pleasant in Bothell. It's located in a suburb of Seattle (about 20 mins away) and is very nice. It's also convenient to stores and restaurants. I would stay there if I didn't live around the corner from it.

RE: I just got the new RV Magazine

It's more of a Martha Stewart rag now. None of the departments or contributors I enjoy and none of the tech. Just a bunch scabbed together junk from various free lancers. What a cheap move Marcus - you really blew it. I will not be renewing either.

RE: Water proofing slide toppers.

I use a long piece of styrofoam insulation stood on edge. Pink grade is more durable.

RE: SiO2 Battery -UPDATE 5 (Two Batts)

Can Si02 live with a 13.2VDC float (PDI storage) voltage? Some literature suggests they want 13.5 min..

RE: Help ID'ing tub

If the pan is fiberglass, why not repair it? It really isn’t difficult and you’ll have it out, anyway. Then you could reinforce it however you want. It’s definitely a design I’ve never noticed before. And yeah, it shouldn’t have split. Good luck with it. RVing is such an adventure, isn’t it? Apparently all RV pans are made out of plastic (ABS) rather than the fiberglass that's used EVERYPLACE else. It's about 1/16" thick and frankly, I don't know how it lasted this long. This is the 4th RV we've had over 30+ years with a shower and the first that has failed. Manufacturers seem to stay up nights figuring out how to make stuff ever more junky.

RE: Help ID'ing tub

Path, I think you're right about the brand and thanks for the link. I can just see the white logo thingy in the back corner. Northwood will sell me a new tub at a reasonable price. I need another large item from them so I'm going to drive to Oregon to save shipping/crating on everything. Kip, this is the only combo unit of this size and has a very distinct shape. Trying to use something else would require a new surround ($$$) and take drastic surgery. I'm going to fiberglass (or have it done) the area that's weak to keep this from happening again. It should not have cracked under my 164# frame!

Thank Path, their website is a little lacking but I'll contact them if I can't get info elsewhere. Scott

Help ID'ing tub

My tub cracked and I'd like to replace (not repair) and reinforce it so it doesn't happen again. I can probably get it from Northwood but I'd like to have options. I need help identifying the make/model. https://i.imgur.com/R8od10o.jpg?1 https://i.imgur.com/ZODL0li.jpg?1 Note that it's very similar to the Pellandant/Fleetwood model but the dimensions are different. Also, any idea what caulk they use? It doesn't seem like silicone and it doesn't attract dirt. Thanks in advance.

RE: Water Heater Gas Supply Line

The gas line generally goes through the floor and down to a black iron pipe. You could disconnect it at the pipe and run a new line or simply use the approriate fitting to splice onto the old brass line and lengthen it. I would like to connect to it where it comes up through the floor. The old one is the right length, but has the wrong fitting on the water heater end. I am just trying to figure out if I can buy this line, or if I need to make a new one. It seems like it is a pretty common connection. There are lines used to make flexible connections to residential water heaters and furnaces but they aren't designed for the rigors of RV use - or at least, I've never seen them in one. The safest bet is to make up a new line. Some old hardware stores still sell flexible 3/8's line by the foot. They may even be willing to flare the ends for you and direct you to the correct style of coupling. It bends pretty easy if done slowly and with care making sure to stop if it starts to kink. EDIT: I see the old line takes a pretty sharp turn getting to the WH fitting. You shold be able to save that section and splice it back togeher. Or, you could use some brass fittings to make those sharp turns.

RE: Help Identifying things in my RV

Seems like a lot of wires for a B/U alarm! Not really, not for "backup alarm" as in a sonar or similar system to detect when you're getting close to an obstacle. There's a power input on the right, what I assume is a lead to the buzzer or whatever on the instrument panel, and a few connectors (A, B, and D) for the sensors. For a backup beeper such as trucks and construction equipment have, then yes it's a lot more wires than one would expect. That would typically just be a little noisemaker box wired to the reverse light circuit, and have no separate control box. Given the little picture of a cartoon car emitting wi-fi, I think a sonar backup sensor system is a very good guess. Yeah, that's a different animal. I was just thinking the beep thing.

RE: Just curious......

Avg is about 11.5 or maybe a little more. We do a lot of mountain driving though.

RE: POWER PANEL went blank. Generator the same

I wonder if your battery died/shorted and took out the reverse polarity fuses in the converter.

RE: Problems with past RV Parks you've stayed at?

Haven't really had any problems in a very long time. Night time noise would probably be the biggest complaint but it seems to be a rare occurance anymore.

RE: Slide - In or Out

I think it's marginally better for them to be in but since I'm in and out of there all winter doing projects and such, I leave the main slide out. Either way isn't a game changer IMHO.
