RE: Odor control for plastic urinal installatoon

For trailer or shop I will loop the line to create a trap. For either use I'll have a shut off valve especially for the trailer when towing, so I dont get any splash back from the tank. The price is $69 Canadienne and aboot $55 Merican.

RE: Dicor lap sealant or Eternabond tape for new roof vent

I'd put butyl tape under the flange to protect the membrane from the flange then use Eternabond.

RE: Odor control for plastic urinal installatoon

The tank will be vented like they usually are through the roof and there will be a loop in the tubing between the urinal and urine tank to act as a trap to keep tank odor from coming back into the trailer. I'm looking at completely neutralizing the stink of the urine and am trying to see if the vinegar by itself works or if i need to add anything else. I'm also trying to keep as much urine as possible from the porta potty i plan on using with the trailer.

Odor control for plastic urinal installatoon

I just purchased anEco Tek Urinal and will be installing it in my work shop when it is built connected to a jug or 1-1/2 inch line buried and connected to my newly planned buried dedicated TT dump line running to my sewer clean out. I later plan on using another Eco Tek Urinal with my custom trailer build i plan on doing with the urine going to a urine only waste tank or jug. I will be able to hang it in the step in shower or hang it on the side of the trailer with a shower curtain or shower tent for privacy. Either way i will be able to connect it to the dedicated urine tank from either location. From what i have seen, with composting toilets a small amount of white vinegar is added to the urine diverter tank and a spritz of white vinegar from a spray bottle is used to spray the toilet surfaces after making deposits. For those with experience with composting toilets, is this all that is needed for complete odor control and cleaning or should i add anything else with the vinegar in the spray bottle? I am familiar with the geo method for traditional TT black tanks holding "mixed" waste. And please, don't anyone start a composting vs traditional TT toilet and black tank war. Moderators please delete any of those comments.

RE: 50 Gal Water Tank Mounting

My 36 gallon fw tank is supported on 3 sides by welded in place angle and on the fourth side by the driver side frame I Beam. My 40 gallon each black and grey tanks are supported on 2 sides by 2 inch angle. They are bolted to flat bar tabs that are welded to the webs of the main frame I-beams.

I bought a ryobi Expand it trimmer, Blower, mower and chainsaw, all in 40 Volt. I'll be carrying everything except the mower especially when I begin full-time. I'll also be carrying some of my attachments for the trimmer.

RE: Rv security camera

Not inexpensive, but you might try Rearviewsafety.com for all your other needs. They sell back up camera systems for commercial and non commercial vehicles and RV's that have multiple cameras. They also have compact DC powered DVR's available that use both hardwired and wifi cameras. You can connect or link from 4 to 8 cameras. They use 1TB and 2TB Western Digital hard drives and also use SD cards. I believe they can be connected via cable to a lap top or computer. I haven't fully looked into them, but will be checking them out closer as I get closer to becoming a single full time nomad. Besides considering using them for a trailer backup and security system, I will also have them installed in my tow vehicle for security incase of any bad encounters on the road.

RE: Oil in Propane

This article gives some insight into the oily residue in Liquid Propane Gas. Emphasis on Liquid. LPG is a byproduct of oil refining. It is compressed and becomes a liquid therefore trapping impurities (the oily residue) in it. Part of it could very well be additional lubricants added to protect the equipment from wear when the gas is compressed. It is also difficult to analyze and remove the impurities as mentioned in the article. After compressing into a liquid state LPG is then shipped with a minute amount of the impurities in it to distributors. It is then transfered again as a liquid into the distributors storage tanks, then transfered again either to dot cylinders, if the they do retail sales or again as a liquid into tanks on trucks to again be transfered as a liquid into tanks at homes, businesses and even retail sellers such as Tractor Supply, U-Haul, Southern States, etc. So the whole time after the manufacturing process it is handled in a liquid state. The oil is suspended within that liquid state. When your cylinder for your trailer or the tank on your motor home is filled that oil can coat the internal surfaces in the shutoff valve itself. As propane gas flows out of the tank or cylinder, oil captured on the internal valve surfaces can eventually over time build up in the regulators and hoses of your RV through multiple cycles of refilling the tanks and cylinders. This is not blackened oil coming from the hoses breaking down, but as I myself have noticed as having a yellowish consistency, so it is leaching out from the Liquid Propane itself even before the liquid reverts back to a gas.

RE: o rings for valve extenders

You might try an auto parts store. They should have a pretty good selection of o-rings. A fleet supply store may also be helpful.

RE: CDL Required to Drive Class A?

Some states require a CDL, some states require a Specialty License the rest only a regular DL. All states outside your home state honor your home state License regardless of the type, i.e. if your home state only requires a regular DL and you are driving in or through a state that requires a CDL you are good to drive in that state. Matt from YouTube channel Matt's RV Reviews: Do you need a specialty License to drive an RV? I saw something in the past week that indicated in Texas if you have a dually truck and and a 5th wheel trailer with gross vehicle weights of both truck and trailer added together totaled over 26000 pounds that you would need a class A license. It was stated that most people in Texas were not aware of the requirement and are towing illegally with that combination. Texas Class A License requirement. Texas info corrected. I found the video regarding Texas. It was for Class A and not A CDL.

RE: mobile LTE modem question

LTE is 4G, which is worse for your body tissue than 3G but not anywhere near as bad as 5G. Put that 4G modem right on your tummy as close to vital organs as possible, you won't have anything to worry about in a couple of years... This is an interesting thing to bring to this thread. I am no scientist but it's breast and brain tissue that's really affected by this. Never heard of hip cancer from carrying a phone in your pocket. Anyway, I do agree with the fundamental idea that this stuff has an effect on us that we don't understand. Aaaand back on topic... I just started browsing Verizon for unlimited plans and they're up to $70 a month for unlimited. Anyone know a really good unlimited plan with great coverage in the Southeast? You might look at nomadinternet.com. Some of the RV Nomads that have YouTube channels and upload videos are using it. They also do live streams using it. It is also being used by people in rural areas that only have dial up or expensive cell phone plans. Nomad internet is truly unlimited and not throttled after reaching a certain cap. They have 4 different plans available using Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile. Plan prices range from $99 per month to $129 per month depending on which plan you use. The most expensive plan uses Verizon. I believe Nomad Intertet is limited to 4G.

RE: FLEXIBLE FRESH WATER HOSE

I'm so bummed that my favorite drinking water safe hose is no longer available. It rolls up flat on an included reel like a fire hose. I bought the last two an online RV shop in Utah had and when the second one dies I guess I'll have to try a Zero G. Will any of these fit your reel?

RE: Adding Heat Strips

Some A/C units have plastic parts in the area where the heat strip mounts that may melt.Dometic makes a kit for the OP's model. I would hope it doesn't melt things. Dometic heat strip for B57915 ducted system There's a different kit for non-ducted systems. Two points from my experience: 1) Don't expect a huge amount of heat. Doug posted the wattage earlier. A space heater can give just as much or more heat. 2) These things stink like heck on the first use of the season. Before you really need it, run it a few minutes with the windows open. As I said "Some A/C units". That is the warning that I saw someone post on another forum. As I stated the OP should check to make sure that his unit is okay to add it. If Dometic makes a kit then it should be able to be added without issues as long as the installation directions are followed.

RE: What do you do?

Drink Crown Royal Apple, Reserve or XO on the rocks. Stoke the fire for coals to bake Dutch oven supreme pizza, bake pineapple upside-down or German chocolate cake in the Dutch oven. Drink more Crown Royal Apple, Reserve or XO on the rocks.

RE: Plumbing pressure relief

Accumulator tanks are now required at the hot water outlet pipe of water heaters on residential construction and when replacing WHs in existing homes. This is to counter the expansion of heated water in the WH and hot water lines and prevent unnecessary cycling of the WH relief valves. So as mentioned introducing air into an RV WH or adding an accumulator tank in the hot water line should solve the problem unless there is a problem with the WH itself over heating the water and or the relief valve has failed to operate. Although someone mentioned adding air by using a drained water hose on the city water connection, if you blow out your water lines to winterize, a shot of compressed air into the city water connection with a hot water faucet open will add air to the WH to reestablish the air pocket.

RE: Best mouse trap?

Please do not use poison. Eating a poisoned rodent is one of the main causes of death for raptor-type birds. It might also be found by a dog or cat who is someone's loved pet. I prefer the snap traps. Possibly the mice are long gone. Just keep an eye out. Yep, 6 to 17 days for an owl to die after eating poisoned mouse.

RE: Long Trips And Medicine Damage

The inside of my amlodipine bottle gets a little dusty inside, but haven't had it disintegrate into powder or break down like the lorazepam. I'll start carrying a smaller quantity and stuff a couple cotton balls in the bottle. If it is a any help to you mine is 10 mg and made by Lupin Pharmaceutical. It is a small round white tablet with an L on one side and 32 on the other side. Purchased from CVS Caremark.
