Replacing Microwave

The original Dometic microwave started malfunctioning towards the end of last season and now, the keypad is completely erratic when you push the buttons. Rather than purchase an RV type microwave with the trim pieces, I purchased a standard home tabletop microwave that fits the opening. Does anybody have any suggestions on how to fasten it down so it doesn't bounce around while underway?

RE: Crack in Black Tank

I'm leaning towards the GFlex epoxy since the first repair I made was with the PlastiMend. Now, that was not with an ABS sheet though. If I use the GFlex, I would embed some fiberglass mesh in it.

RE: Crack in Black Tank

That's right a this is a black ABS tank I do see that Plastimend has a kit that comes with some sheets of ABS. Is that similar to what you did? The spot I will be repairing is right under where the dump pipe connects to the tank.

RE: Crack in Black Tank

That's exactly where the crack is on my tank - right near the dump pipe. Now that you mention it, I wonder if a piece of Eternabond tape would seal it. I've had really good results on the roof and it sounds similar to the tape you describe. One thing I've done on the roof is apply Lexel caulk at the seams of the tape so there would be no chance of it peeling up.

Crack in Black Tank

Last season we discovered a small crack in our black tank, which I repaired with PlastiMend. It stopped the leak and I thought it was going to be a permanent fix. Until a week ago when I de-winterized it. I noticed another crack in the area that was repaired and was dripping. I'm looking at different ways of repairing - Looks like some people have had success with G-Flex 655-8 Epoxy and fiberglass mesh. Another thing I was looking at was PC-7 Epoxy which I have had experience with fixing many things with a lot of success. Does anyone have any recommendations on repairing this crack? Thanks in advance! Art

RE: Reese Sway Control Bar

Thanks for all the great advice! I just got back today and the swaybar worked great to stabilize the trailer. I backed off the adjustment nut a quarter turn from where it was set from the factory and used the "on/off" handle as directed in the instructions by tightening it down but leaving it parallel to the bar. No sway at all at any speed. I'm sure it helped that it was pretty stable to begin with, but there would be noticable sway in high winds and when passing semi trucks. No issues any more with that.

RE: Reese Sway Control Bar

Thanks guys! The biggest thing I worry about is having it too tight and having it break the hitch head or the trailer tongue. The thing is with these things is there really isn't a whole lot of information out there about adjusting them. Watched a few YouTube videos but it sounds like it's more trial and error than anything else.

Reese Sway Control Bar

Finishing up the first season with our TT and decided to get a friction sway control bar for our next trip. We have the Reese style hitch head with trunion style springbars. The hitch head already had the little sway control ball installed as well as on the TT. My question is about dialing in the amount of friction. How much friction should there be? Out of the box, it's tightened enough to where I can't slide the bar in or out at all. If I loosen the "On Off" lever, pull the bar out and tighten the lever back, if I put all my weight on it, it will barely slide back in. We towed the TT about 1,000 miles this year without much sway at all. Just wanted to add the swaybar for additional safety. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
