RE: How to repair front trim/stripped holes on trailer?

There is likely wood framing behind. If that has not been damaged the screw holes can be plugged with wood slivers and glue and the screws reset.

RE: How to install stuff on walls

If you are replacing shades you can likely fasten the blinds in the same location with screws. Windows normally have a frame around the perimeter that you can screw into.

RE: Vent fan upgrades

Easiest to install are the Vortex as they will go into the existing vent. The Maxx Air are a little nicer and slightly quieter; however they require replacing the entire vent assy.

RE: New Orleans

Unless you are into just urban activities; why restrict yourself to just New Orleans. As you go west cuisine changes from Creole to Cajun and landscape from swamp to prairie. The time you picked is mid summer so it will be hot and humid, but there is much to see. It all depends on your interests.

RE: fan/vent cover binding

I would first try lubricating the lift arms.

RE: Southern luxury rv resorts. Need Ideas

What bucky linked to is about right for average. On any given day it depends on passage of weather fronts. Generally mild but can get below freezing if a strong cold front passes.

RE: Southern luxury rv resorts. Need Ideas

It is just off I-10 about 15 miles east of Lafayette in the heart of Cajun country, with attractions showing the history of the Acadians. Good restaurants with the local cuisine are abound in the surrounding communities. There are also boat tours of the Henderson swamp and opportunities for other outdoor activities.

RE: Southern luxury rv resorts. Need Ideas

In Henderson, Louisiana there is a Margaritaville that was formally Cajun Palms. Haven't seen it since Margaritaville took over; but before it had everything a person would want.

RE: Voltage Drop - NOT Park Problem

When checking connections, did you put a screwdriver to them to make sure they were tight and clean? What is the condition of the contacts and connections IN the transfer switch? The problem may lay there.

RE: Pet Peeves in RV Parks

Part of the light problem is the trend even at home to light up everything. I have a neighbor that felt the need to add a mercury vapor light on the front of the garage even thou there is already a city street light on each corner of his property.

RE: Slab sinking

What is coordinated pipe? Do you mean corrugated pipe; if so, and it is under the section that is sinking, it may have collapsed.

RE: Pet Peeves in RV Parks

Parks that are are poorly designed. Things like utilities on the wrong side, sewer connection too tall, dump sites where your rig sits with a list away from the connection, and other things that make it apparent that the designer never used an RV.

RE: Replica of One of the First Cars (18th century)

Being steam, it could probably pull quite a bit. At 2 MPH you'd get there faster walking. Look where that beginning has brought us.

RE: leaf spring broken..trailer legs?

I am leery about putting anything inboard of the spring saddles. As for stability,the only flex they remove is that of the tires. The springs will still flex.

RE: Route Planning Question

Back up any routing system with paper maps. Many times there is a better route than the one chosen by the electronic system.

RE: Res fridge blowing warm air

Defrost cycle.

RE: Cost of EV Batteries

Another point. What will happen to the batteries after they die. We keep worrying about CO2 and such; but what about the effect on the enviroment of the byproducts of manufacturing these high tech batteries and such.

RE: Wheel Bearings

I would be more concerned about the tire age. If they are ST series and near or beyond 5 years by date code; I would change them. If you are not familiar with it, the date code is a 4 digit number molded in the sidewall of the tire indicating the week and year and manufacture. The first two are week and second year ie a tire manufactured last week would show 3122.

RE: Water heater temperature

There are mixing valves available. They are plumbed in between the hot and cold water line and the output is tempered. Most have adjustable output temperature.

RE: Proper outside storage

Ventilation is the key. Roof vent open with cover and a window opened. All I have is slide windows so I made this to keep weather out. https://i.imgur.com/St5Nqn6l.jpg
