RE: Keep using Eternabond until entire roof is covered?

...after 15 years the rubber roof itself is starting to go; the white is wearing off in places and the black shows through.... Purely cosmetic, you don't have to do anything with it. While the white is cosmetic, it keeps the UV off the black rubber that would otherwise break it down very quickly. So it is important to keep something over the black part. I retired from commercial building management. There are millions of commercial roofs using the same EPDM roofing that RVs are using. The white layer is purely cosmetic.

RE: Sewage Follies

I have read that buses typically pull over a grate and let it rip. Seems like that dump station may be to accommodate Greyhounds and charter buses.

RE: MaxxFan (Smoke with Remote Control) Best For Ventilation?

Good choice. I could have purchased any fan I wanted. In the past I have had the Vortex, Fantastic, and Maxx. For my current trailer I chose the Maxx 7500K for our bedroom. I can't answer your question about power draw, I never even thought about it.

RE: Leveling Jack Pads

For heaves sake, I don't need to put my "Stabilizer Jacks" down so hard as to lift the rig off of the ground. A short 2X6 or a extra plastic leveler block is all I need. I'm not planning on keeping it stable during a earthquake. And, of the girlfriend and I are rocking it around a bit I don't care who cares. But, to each their own. Some of us have levelers, not stabilizers. Mine can easily lift the tires off the ground.

RE: New 6 volt golf cart batteries seem not to be charging

New install? You connected them wrong or simply left a wire off. Redo your install.

RE: full time 101 questions

Mobile homes are built for full time use, RVs are not. Prepare the site, buy a used mobile home and get it delivered. Put a foundation under it and you have a house.

RE: First time Eternabond user observations

I cut shorter more manageable length pieces and overlap the ends.

RE: Campground washroom needs GFCI

It has to be protected since it's a commercial or public facility (goes for rentals too). No grandfathering. If it passed inspection before the GFI requirement the is no code to make them upgrade to GFI. Yes it can be grandfathered. Per NEC, NOT in a commercial, public or rental property. I have been though this many times and I am 100% sure of this. Now if some local yocals don't adopt NEC requirements then anything goes but the code is clear. True, before retirement I did commercial property management and renovating. Health and safety is NOT grandfathered.

RE: Refrigerator fans and roof vents

Typically refrigerators with a roof vent don't need fans. Have you checked the clearances in the back? You might need to add baffles or filler material to close up wasted space.

RE: Hold down screws for RV walls

Hillman Pop toggles at Home Depot. I'm using them for the same purpose, the factory screwed into just the wall panel and they are pulling out. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Hillman-1-8-in-Pop-Toggles-with-Screws-6-Pack-376254/202243046 https://images.homedepot-static.com/productImages/f60c4b09-8a33-430a-9949-d05153f8c5c7/svn/hillman-hollow-drywall-anchors-376254-64_1000.jpg width=300

RE: 2017 Cherokee 274DBH question

Refrigerator is not in a slide, right? The upper vent should be on the roof.

RE: Wireless cameras

After looking at the Furrion and surviving the sticker shock, I bought a Haloview which is substantially less expensive. The Haloview also records everything like a rear facing dashcam.

RE: Good Sam credit card fuel limits

... Of course the cutoff is set by the station depending on how much risk they are willing to assume. Higher volume stations could also get a higher guarantee from the card company, We aren't privy to those negotiations.Which is the answer to the question asked by the OP, and was replied to by me and several others: the gas station sets the limits. The station either abides by the card company limits or sets different limits. The fact is; the issue is caused by limits set by the card company on non-signature transactions. You don't want the limit? Take a walk into the the store and sign, then it is a different type of transaction.

RE: NEC 2020 & Receptacles

For those considering installing a 30 or 50 amp receptacle at home for their RV's, you might check out the changes the 2020 NEC has instituted. Looks like GFCI's will be required on all outdoor receptacles. NEC Increased GFCI Protection Nope, according to Mike Sokol it has been put on hold for now and will be reconsidered at next cycle of code review.

RE: 6 Volt RV batteries

Sir Beemberphile. A gentle and polite question if I may :) How many days per year average are you vacationing disconnected? Are your batteries constantly maintained at home? Last question first, batteries are constantly maintained when home. First question is harder to answer other than to say it varies. Spent five months in the southwest last winter, some dry camping and some resort camping. Have 400 watts of solar for dry camping so with four batteries they are never run particularly low. In other words, I use but don't abuse the batteries.

RE: Good Sam credit card fuel limits

When using a credit card without a signature the card company limits how much they will be liable for if the card is bad/stolen. Some gas companies will cut you off at that limit because anything over comes out of their pocket.The limit the gas stations impose have nothing to do with credit card limits They are arbitrary amounts set by the stations, not the CC companies. That limits their losses in case of drive offs. Nope, with a signature the card company accepts full risk, without a signature they limit the risk to a set amount, exceed that amount and the station can get burned.So why do you get different limits at different stations using the same card? It's set by the stations, otherwise all stations would have the same limit on the same card, and they don't. Of course the cutoff is set by the station depending on how much risk they are willing to assume. Higher volume stations could also get a higher guarantee from the card company, We aren't privy to those negotiations.

RE: 6 Volt RV batteries

I get my GC2 (6v golf car) batteries at Sam's Club. I plan (usually get) a minimum of 7 years use.
