RE: Wastewater Tote & Fresh Water Containers - Do you use them?

Showering is over rated. Keeps the neighbors far away no need for covid masks. Jesseannie

RE: Use of FLEX-SEAL (revisited)

A little over a year ago I posted that I used Flex Seal on a tough seal job on the roof. And I was happy. I was told to wait a year and then report back. Because they said that I would say something something different the performance after a year was poor. Well I am here to tell you that it performed beautifully. I believe it was properly preparing the substrate before I applied the product. I brushed it on and applied two coats it has performed as advertised. Jesseannie That's good to hear. Not many things more frustrating than having to redo a paint or sealant that didn't work as it should. (Removal of the old stuff being the worst part of it.) But I have to ask, if repairing something that you intend to be permanent, and it's not a quick side of the road type use what ya got type repair, why not use a product that is proven to be the right material for the application, rather than some "as seen on TV" type product? I used a product on my repair job that was permanent. I did the job at home and cleaned the old caulking of the skylight. I installed Dicor in the big holed and covered it all with paint able Flex Seal. It did a good job better than smearing on Dicor. Jesseannie

RE: Mechanics backed up for weeks all over?

I think it is a "good service" issue. If you get quality service it is going to cost you and you may have to wait. But if the service dept knows you and you don't cry wolf too often you will get in quickly. Jesseannie

RE: Best TT in the western parks?

We have found in our state and national park visits that larger campsites are hard to cone by. We have a 26' travel trailer and often we are limited to less than a half dozen sites in a 50 site camp ground. I think that National parks have the least big sites. Sometimes it is not the length of the parking pad but the narrow access road makes it nearly impossible to maneuver into the spot. We had a beautiful site in a park inside Mt. Rainer NP but it was on a corner and we had to back uphill to get into it. It took my wife and I and two other campers to guide it into the spot. It was marked for up to 29' but boy it was hard to get into. When we bought our trailer we thought it was small enough to go anywhere but sometimes we wish we had gone to a 24. We loved camping at Jedidiah Smith in the Redwoods when we had a van camper. But the sites are limited to 24 feet and we won't fit. My advice make an itinerary then look at your options for site size all along the route of your trip, maybe that will give you some help.

RE: Anyone have recommendations for awning replacement

We have Carefree awnings and went directly to their website to view info on replacements although we purchased items elsewhere for well under Carefree online pricing. Not overly complicated process, we even added some window awnings to keep the heat out during summer RVing. There are service companies that specialize in awning replacement in most major cities, I seen them removed and replaced in about 15 minutes when RVing in PHX a few years back. Really? It takes me 15 minutes to lower mine. Haha Jesseannie

RE: Anyone have recommendations for awning replacement

I just went through the thought process of redoing my awning my self or getting the local RV shop to do it. I decided not to tackle it myself. I am glad. The shop took it all down, replaced the fabric, replaced a torsion spring (he had a barely used one he gave me). Freshened up all the fasteners and recaulked the holes. It works better than it ever has. He charged me 675.00 complete. For me it was worth it. And that was a completly manual awning. Jesseannie

RE: Soresto Collar Danger

We have an English Springer Spaniel that started scratching and licking almost obsessively recently. We wondered if the Seresto collar may have caused this? The use of the collar and the licking of her front legs and paws seemed to coincide. We took the collar off about a week ago after reading some of the complaints and she is much better. The obsessive linking is much better. We will see if it continues to get better as the chemicals work out of her system. My two cents. Jesseannie

RE: Black frp sheets.

I used to sell and distribute FRP. Black is a very unusual color. Even as a distributor if we ordered it there was a minimum. Can you get it from the RV manufacturer? Jesseannie

RE: Social distancing

If we had a "like"button, I would click on it. Unfortunately; the Aunt Ednas in our camp ground can't read. No one here is doing social distancing. It is a very sad situation. My wife, (83) and myself (84) used to love to take a daily walk, but we now are pretty much trailer bound ! Guy I have a 6 foot long walking staff. Used appropriately it keeps all the close talkers at bay, along with my big "keep your distance" button. Jesseannie

RE: Skylight/roof repair

I am always hesitant to post an experience I have had that others may benefit from on this forum. There are always those who are more experienced and have different opinions, and are always more than willing to share them. This worked for me I thought I would share. I am probably better off being an observer and not posting. Jesseannie

RE: Skylight/roof repair

So, using the Dicor you covered 6 inches, the same girth as you did with flexseal? Did you dicore over the screws too? I can't imagine Dicore Lap sealant not working. I suspect user error, so curious what your method was. Dicore is good for RVs since it is a good idea to re-do this every few years anyway. Dicore is easy to remove and re-apply. Sounds like by a few years the flexseal will deteriorate so can be cleaned away with a small wisk broom at least. I covered the area thoroughly I know what I am doing, I spent 50 years in commercial construction. The issue with the Dicor for this job in my opinion is the small hairline cracks and fissures that happen after application and I doesn't "flow" into those small spaces like a liquid. Thanks for your upbeat post.

Skylight/roof repair

I had a problem with the skylight in the shower of my travel trailer leaking I had used dicor twice previously and was very careful with the application of the caulking. It still leaked. I live in rainy Oregon and camp year around so I wasn't going to park it with a blue tarp on it....lol. So I bought a qt of liquid Flex Seal (as seen on TV) I dried off the area with a towel and heated and dried it carefully with a hair dryer. I again carefully filled any suspect holes and cracks with Dicor and brushed one coat of the thick coating about 6 inches wide around and up on the perimeter of the plastic skylight. Success! We have had lots of rain since the repair and it is bone dry inside. I am a believer! Jesseannie

RE: Out with the old in with the new

We were camping for the New year also. We were at Sunset Bay near Coos Bay oregon. The ocean was incredible, huge waves and breakers on the cliffs and rocks, amazing. Looks like your Border Collies enjoyed it too? Jesseannie

New Years camping.

We usually winterize the trailer in late November and start camping in April, but this year we decided to go camping over the New years holiday. We moved to Oregon 3 years ago and are going to take advantage of the mild winters. We will be at a full hook up campground on the Oregon coast so we will have water and heat. We are planning on a special grilled steak dinner on New Years eve. Other than a late winter trip to Arizona years ago this will be our first winter trip. jesseannie

RE: New travels trailers are getting scarce

Just wait until springtime. All the "if we get a trailer we can travel all we want" folks that had no idea what they were getting into will be dumping some hardly used units after the kids and/or wife decide it is not for them. Won't be this spring. With the media pushing the virus so hard. Camping will still be the way to go. I don't know about this being the media's fault.... it might be tge overflowing ICUs and morgue? jesseannie

RE: Smallest RV anyone has full timed in?

We full timed in a 26 foot no slide trailer. The only thing that was a problem was having a really comfortable seating arrangement. The gaucho sofa and an armed dining chair did not cut it. Jesseannie
