RE: Fridge issue

Before your fridge, water heater or any appliance you must be sure you have gas going to the appliance. The best way to do this is light you stove top and after you get a flame then try your appliance. This is required if you unit is sitting awhile and there is no gas yet to the appliance. In other words, you purge the gas line.

RE: supplemental cabinet latch?

Just a stupid thought, but you can try those safety latches made so babies can't open cabinets.

RE: Caulking

DO NOT USE SILICONE. I use Dicor on the roof and Lexel on the sides.

RE: Myrtle Beach Campground recommendations.

There are many CG in Myrtle Beach that our good, but you are packed like sardines. We vacationed there many years ago, and hated it. Check out Emerald Isle, NC. We stopped there on the way down to Myrtle, and are now retired in the area. We love it.

RE: PA Drivers License Class

Used to live in PA about 8 years ago. Have a dually truck and a 5er. Truck is 8 T and the trailer is rated about 20 K lbs. I had a standard license at the time. Now, if you are taking on paying passengers you will need a class B. (Such as a taxi or school bus). You should be able to just call them and get an answer right away.

RE: Cleaning up my stabilizer jacks

Babock: Too busy for that, but am sure someone got some good info. Don't be so picky. If they are scissors then they are stabilizing very little weight. I got a replacement scissors for my son-in-laws little trailer that seized up from e-trailer. Better quality than the OEM jack and only took about 1/2 to 3/4 an hour to install. Keep them lubed with WD-40. Yes, took a bit of time. But, there is a big difference between "stabilizer" and ""leveling" jacks. Stabilizers can not lift the rig, while leveling jacks can.

RE: Cleaning up my stabilizer jacks

I hope you did not score them with the wire brush. If they are hydraulic like mine you might have ruined the shafts. They should be smooth. I have not had a problem, but what I do is wipe them with a soft cloth or paper towel with silicone spray on it. I try to be sure I get up inside by the seal too. Then I spray the piston with the silicone. This also done every time before I retract them.

RE: How do I change these LEDs?

The glass twists off. I have halogens, but same thing. The "lamp" is on spring clip. Pull it down enough so you can grip the glass and twist is off. Sometimes, the glass sticks, so what I did was spray a very light coating of WD-40, just in one or 2 spots, where the glass meets the metal and wait a few minutes. Then try again. After you get it off, clean the area of WD-40 and put a small bit of valeline on the glass for net time. Very small amount. When you do this, be sure you are secure. I use a ladder as I am short and it pays to have a good grip. If you feel safer use some gloves to grip the glass with one hand and the metal base with the other. Be careful, as the mount is fragile and you don't want to break it. For the Halogens, I have to use lintless white gloves so I don't get oil on the bulb. I don't know if this would be necessary for an LED, but it would not hurt. GOOD LUCK!

RE: Class C roof damage

Check into enternabond products. They have a variety of products and they work.

RE: Surge Protector

Y-E-S, YES AND yes. Any way you want to say it. I have 50A service so naturally I have the 50 Amp version. There is a 30 or 50 amp that you can get. I have the Progressive Industries EMS-LCHW50 (built in version) since the unit was new in 2012. It has saved our unit many times. Well worth the investment. Don't know if they have the same model or improved models, but well worth it.

RE: CoPilot and Navigation questions

I have a 40' 5er and several years ago we did a cross country trip. When we are on the move I plot our travels using 2 items: The Garmin RV6000LMT and the issue of the Rand McNally Motor carries road atlas. Mine is the large print laminated version. We check routes using dry erase magic markers. The can be erased and the routes can be changed. Using the two helps keep the garmin error free.

RE: Microwave dying

I am looking for just a microwave, not micro/convection. The air fryer is a good idea, but I use the microwave basically for reheating and heating up canned dog food for my little buddies. Anyone have experience with LG, Panasonic or Sharp. I know GE is rated high, but I do not like GE products.

Microwave dying

We are full-timers and our microwave is starting to go. There is a relay or something that keeps the unit on after it is supposed to shut down. After giving it a couple of quick slams on the side it unsticks and works for a time or two. The unit is above range mounted with a cook light and fan. (Fridgadare). I am looking for what types of microwaves you have used for replacement and if you recommend it.

RE: Replacement tires

I have been using BF Goodrich LT245/175R, Rugged Trail T/A. Load Range E since my truck was new. Good tire. As a mater of fact I am putting 2 on the front tomorrow.

RE: slide out

Slide out stablilizers are not recommended. Your unit was build with plenty of support for the slide. If you do use a slide out it is very possible that too much pressure be put on the slide and could cause misalignment or other problems.

RE: Said goodbye to my foster dog

I share your loss. Many dogs are abused and it is not right. Persons that abuse animals should not have a dog or kids. I lost a member of my family the end of January to cancer and he is the second companion who's ashes I hope to be with me when I am gone. A dog is truly a friend, member of the family and someone you can count on when the chips are down. We had fostered 17 dogs when we were not full timers and all had found good homes. One was a foster failure and we adopted him. If I were you, I would get another foster as soon as possible. Not to replace your friend, but to save another life.

RE: Fit, finish and quality comparison...

My truck is older. I bought it because the build was rated the best at that time. The interior is okay, but many engine related repairs. I would not purchase another Ford unless others are just as bad.
