RE: Replace or reseal skylight

I would go Huntindogs route. Once you get the old sealant loose the hard part is done.

RE: 2 Battery banks built from 6 volts

Slightly off topic here but a 12v TV set uses a fraction of the power and they’re not that expensive. To save water we use a lot of hand sanitizer. Taking a shower, use a 1/2 gal milk bottle to catch water while the hot makes the trip and use that for toilet water. Get led light bulbs.

RE: Mileage observations

I get curious just like you do! I don’t remember what the name was, but I googled something like power requirements for trailer towing. What I found was a site where you enter height, width, weight and speed and it would calculate hp and torque required. It didn’t really mean much but it was fun to play with!

RE: TT for full time living or negatives of trailer brands

If you’ve never done this before rent some kind of camper for at least a couple of weeks and see if you even like it. There are many challenges living in a space so small, many you’d never even dream of without some experience. Make sure you’re ready to do much of your own maintenance. It can save you a small fortune.

RE: New to the forum, new to TT's as well

Congrats on your new toy! Half the fun of it is figuring everything out. Don’t over think it all and realize that things break, so don’t let that spoil a trip. On of the hardest things I had to learn was the oh well attitude. Happy travels!

RE: Those with portable surge protector

I have a hard wired Progressive on mine and it wasn’t able to stop a surge. It burnt the wires coming right out of the box. Not only would they not honor the warranty because I drilled a hole in the box form my solar, they wouldn’t even answer my original question and would not engage any further conversation. That’s the part that really PISSED ME OFF. Moral of the story, it only seems to be good for high or low voltage alerts.

RE: Slide out awning covers

I’ve had toppers on my last two trailers over the last 12 years. I’ve replaced the fabric on two out of the four of them. If you’re the least bit handy you can easily replace them for only the cost of the fabric. I wouldn’t have a slide without them. I’ve had more problems from my porch awnings than the toppers.

RE: Oops, Dodge just threw you under the bus...

Is it really necessary for me to have a one ton dually to get my petunias home from Lowe’s?

RE: how to level a trailer

The reason for leveling at all is to protect the fridge. Use the stick ons like said above and get it close. Rule of thumb is if you’re comfortable inside you’re close enough. It doesn’t have to be perfect.

RE: Slides- Important stuff AND what they don't tell you.

I have three on mine and they’re used ALOT. All of them have toppers to keep the debris out. Only problem I’ve had was one of them wouldn’t go out until I gave it a boost. It’s a rack and pinion type and the stop can got out of adjustment. That caused it to bind. Then can is not square and it basically got upside down. Easy fix if you know about it.

RE: Why did the motorists cross the road?

I remember hours with my mom and sister gluing stamps in little books. The snacks for doing the chore were the best.

RE: How to eat a onion ring

It probably wasn’t peeled right. Fold in half, dip in mustard, bite. Continue until the gorge is complete.

RE: What do you want in a campground?

For me it depends on which side of the Mississippi I’m on. East side it’s the standard clean, fairly level and a decent amount of room. West! Ahh, West. I like a place anywhere off the side of the road. Water, sewer, electric, WiFi all amenities I really don’t need. The amenity I like most is kind of level and my nearest neighbor a few hundred yards away. If you’re that far I’d love to have a cold brew at the bbq with youp but go home at night. I love western USA!!!!! Can ya tell? Happy travels y’all!

RE: Perils of RVing

My latest was trying to remove a parking lot ballard at Walmart using the curb side of my trailer. This was followed by several hard, self inflicted kicks to the seating area.

RE: Back in the day...

Yeah, well, I get a good laugh every morning when I look in the mirror, because in the middle of the night, some gremlin painted a picture of an old fart smiling at himself and brushing MY tooth. Haha! Good one. Great way to start the day!!!!

RE: Ideas for a truck to pull 6500lb trailer?

Maybe consider a 2500 type truck with the gas engine. Any of them should have enough motor to do the job. The 2500’s may not ride as rough as you think. Part of the trick is deflate to rear tires to around 50psi and the fronts to 60. It makes a big difference. Happy shopping!
