RE: Window that leaks, replace or repair?

I rarely post anymore but may be able to help so here goes. Buddy had a new RV with a window that kept leaking. Like yours, nothing was obvious so we removed it and found the leak. The aluminum frame is an exruded piece that's formed to fit. Where the two ends come together there will be some goop to seal it. If there's a pin hole, bubble or you can see any of the end of the aluminum, it will leak there. All his needed was a dot of sealant to cover a tiny hole, which we could have done without even removing it. So just look for where the two ends come together.

RE: Slides out / level

Sorry, I can't keep my fingers silent any more! This responses on this post are the reason why I quit posting completely on these forums. No one here has truly answered the OP's question. Everyone is side tracked, bashing the OP with WalMart parking etiquite. Did anyone even bother to read her question? It started out: "If we stop for a night at say Walmart"... In other words, If we stop for at night at say (for example) Walmart.... what about my slides if I'm parked on an unlevel suface. Her question has nothing to do with WalMart. But no, everyone jumps on WalMart overnight parking. Sheesh! I sent the OP a PM and explained the possible repercussions if extending the slide outs on an unlevel plain. OK, so bash ME again, and again and again. I'll post again in a few months! Good to see you Dutch. I've quit posting for the same reasons. I occasionally lurk but there's just too many jack-wads allowed to dominate the forum unchecked. Scott

RE: Fridge on propane while driving

I am the RV doctor and the guy from tv education 101 say leave it off. I was on the fire dept for 30 years and fought several rv fires that started in the back of the fridge because they thought it would never happen to them. come to my town and see the new rebuilt gas station we have because of a motor home fridge was left on and he gassed up and burned the place down and a ups truck refueling next to him. there are some tunnels back east that tell you to turn off your propane when going through the tunnel. must be a good reason for that, right?? In my mind there are a lot of people who think it's ok because they have gotten away with it for years. their turn is coming. Murphy will see to that. I use freezable ice packs to put int he fridge between the food when I travel and at night when sleeping I refreeze the packs for the next travel day I rarely ever post here anymore because of all the jackarses but this kind of stuff needs to be responded to. First, in an accident when the PP lines are ruptured, the tanks will shut the flow OFF. Second, I have TWO career fireman living in my neighbor hood. One is a retired Captain and the other is currently a Commander. I talked to both of them in depth about this subject and in their combinded 60+ years of experience, they had NEVER seen an RV fire caused by a fridge. Many eng fires that burned rigs to the ground but NO FRIDGES. Third, RV fridge fires were caused by manufacturing defect MORE THAN TEN YEARS AGO. Unless you have one of those fridges and have refused to get the FREE safety recall done, your chances of having a fridge fire are astronomical. Finally, tunnels, ferrys, etc want people to turn of the propane period. This has nothing to do with RV fridges at all. Now you can flame me all you want, I have no respect for you because of the outdated and made-up nonsense you spread but folks need to know the truth.

RE: Hwy #20 from Anacortes into Idaho

Use extreme caution when approaching NewHalem. It is a huge, notorious speed trap.

RE: Strange Ram 2500 Vibration

Had a very similar experience that went on for hundreds of miles and many hours. Then BANG! I nearly lost a back wheel. Looked at wheel and suddenly only had 3 lugs of 8 left and they were loose.

RE: Ucconnect? Worthwile?

It isn't worth it to me because anything I need is easlily available elsewhere. So I let it lapse. So far haven't missed it.

RE: Rotella for GAS Engines

Rotella and Delo for diesels contain zinc to prevent wear of flat tappets although the level of zinc has been reduced as of late. Zinc will cause premature fouling of the oxygen sensor in vehicles equipped with them. depends on which formulation you use. I've seen Delo and Rotella that is both C and S certified for the latest ratings. I believe that Rotella T5 is only C rated, at least that is what I recall when I last bought some. If it is S rated for the latest S rating SJ?? then it has reduced Zinc. With the switch to roller cams on OHV engines and the increase in OHC engines, few of the new vehicles have a flat tappet cam. But lots of cars through at least the 90's do. That's what I wrote: "the level of Zinc has been reduced as of late". Any level of zinc is bad for 02 sensors and that's why it has been totally removed from all gas engine oils for modern cars. (Yes, I know there are specialty oils with zinc added for old cars)

RE: Exhaust Brake Buying...

The OP's 2006 Cummins is FULLY exhaust brake ready. Valve springs and trans are built for it with no modifications. I've had a Pac "brake" for more than 10 years without any issues.

RE: Reese River Nut #58507 undersize - too loose for 75 ft/lbs

They do not "require" "rivet" nuts. They tell you to use them with tubular frames rather than bolt through them and risk collapsing the tube. That would lead to loosenes. If you have a C channel frame you don't need them.

RE: Bathroom Sink Faucet

You don't need to worry about dimensions. Faucets either have 4" (bathroom) or 8" spacing (kitchen). Your faucet has 4" spacing and any residential faucet will work fine. Or, you can use any single hole faucet with an escutcheon plate to hide the unused holes. Hmmmm I have 8" center lav faucets :h There's no law that says someone can't stick a kitchen faucet in a bath.

RE: LP Detector

I am testing the power-on timer theory with my new one. I'm disconnecting it every winter for about 6 months. We'll see if it lasts twice as long.

RE: 2015 Rockwood Windjammer 3025W - 30 or 50 amp service?

This site link lists 50A as an option along with second AC- kind of a bundle. Mine was listed the same way. So if it says second AC, it will be 50A.

RE: 110 outlet with 12 volt socket?

It's (safely) done all the time with 5V USB charge ports and 120V receptacles but I don't think anyone makes a 12V/120V outlet combo. Probably just not a big enough market for them but I could use one as well.

RE: 50 amp cords

While the dielectric grease may make it easier to get apart it actually hurts your electrical connection. Dielectric grease does not conduct electricity. Fortunately this is a myth. Prove me wrong :) Go out to your rig yank the battery cables. Gob the grease on. Then put the cables back on, hit the starter. Again. Again. Twenty times. Then grab a brewski and wander around for the rest of the day scratching your head. A year later you'll remain wondering how and why. Theory always takes a slapping when it faces practical experience. It takes no effort to prove it doens't conduct electricity. Simply stick the leads of an ohm meter in it and measure. Besides, "Dielectric" letterally means that it doesn't conduct. I made thousands of dollars off guys that slathered that stuff on connections in avaiation. I have no doubt in my mind that it causes the problems.
