Thanks Doug!

RE: Adding electric heat element to gas water heater

Yeah, I've already ordered a kit and will likely take that approach. Thanks All!

Adding electric heat element to gas water heater

Because my old travel trailer may need to be permanently occupied for the next 6 months or so, I'm considering adding an electric heating element to the gas only water heater. The tank is aluminum, and it looks like the available kits use brass fittings. I'm concerned about galvanic corrosion. Anybody have experience with these things?

RE: Why did my water pump stop pumping?

Recently we had the same thing happen. I looked everywhere. Finally, digging around under the sink (where the pump is) I noticed the wife had stuffed a cleanser bottle into a corner, which happened to be where the water line came from the tank. The line was pinched just a little bit. When I removed that bottle, the water started flowing.

RE: Roof reseal

I would Eternabond over all the straight seams, then self leveling dicor or equivalent on the round ones. When it's all dried and cured, paint it with your favorite product. JMHO. I used Heng's about 4 years ago on my EPDM roof and it's holding up great. It has yellowed a little but is still stuck down great. I may do another coat next year.

RE: Furrion Chill 14.5 & 15.5 unit's both use 15.4 amps?

I guess research is good, but my Coleman Mach III is 18 years old and works great. I'm not worrying about it until it makes me.

RE: DIY Awning protection cap / cover

I have considered the same thing, and even doing it very similar to what you described. Ultimately I just applied two strips of 4" wide Eternabond across the top of the awning. It protected it well. I just replaced that awning at 18 years old. There are awnings available with built in protection for the top section.

RE: air compressors

That cheap Harbor Freight one just filled the tire on my son's Hyundai Sonata from flat to full in just a few minutes. The tires are very low profile though. I was impressed.

RE: Great video about generators, ground rods, bonding, etc.

My impression is that we should probably always bond ground/neutral on our portable generators when using them to power our RVs. There's always lots of conversation about EMS systems requiring it.

I have some ancient electrical training that was navy specific, so I was kind of fuzzy on some of the topics. This made it all easily understandable for me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=viNZV0lyRVQ

RE: Fleetwood prowler 25Z where is the breaker panel?

That's where it is on my Fleetwood trailer too.

RE: Patching an enclose underbelly

Eternabond is ugly but it work well for that application. And it doesn't show anyway.

RE: New Travel Trailer

I thought the OP said 7000 lbs loaded. Interestingly, my Ram 1500 with coils springs tows my 6500 lb trailer absolutely rock solid. I don't even know what the relationship between coil springs and white knuckles is all about. I call BS. There's a couple on youtube that fulltimes in their 7000 lb Grand Design that's pulled by diesel Ram half ton. They've towed coast to coast with no problems for about 5 years now.

RE: Vinegar Treatment

Be sure to rinse any and all areas surrounding the water heater after you drain it. The vinegar corroded the door hinges and other areas really bad. I used the 25% vinegar solution for my system.

Beautiful country! We live near BC and have been considering an extended tour/visit. Thanks for sharing!

RE: Replacement Awning Fabric

I'm getting ready to replace my 18 year old awning today. It lasted that long because I ran two strips of Eternabond along the top section. How wide a roll did you use? 4", 6" wide or wider? Two strips = how may inches covered? Thanks John I used two 4" strips for a total of 8". It covered the entire top half of the awning when rolled up. I don't know much about awnings, especially newer ones. On mine, I was able to lay the awning flat against the side of the trailer by putting the legs under the trailer. That made it easy to attach the Eternabond. I should note that the Eternabond eventually looked rather wrinkly but staid securely attached to the awning. Not pretty but very effective.

RE: Thinking about the next Tow Vehicle

Though I think the newer gas V6s (non-turbocharged) would do what you want, I think they would work hard. Just about any V8 (or equivalent power) truck would do well for you. I firmly believe Ram builds a lot of play into their numbers. Their GVWR is miles from their GAWR. My 2015 Ram with 5.7L V8 tows our 6000 - 6500 lb trailer with ease and stability under all conditions. And that's with various loads in the truck that are usually over the GVWR, but under GAWR. I agree with the statement earlier that anything in the last 8 years or so would be adequate as long as you go by the manufacturers numbers and it's been well maintained.

RE: 2005 Durango 5.7l

It's body on frame. I used use an older Dakota for similar service. As long as you have the gearing, and a reasonably good antisway wd hitch... why not? I would do it. JMHO
