RE: BedRug with hitch

According to the frequently asked questions on their website, getting wet or being in the sun (UV resistant) won't hurt it. It doesn't hold water it drains right through to your bed drains. Even says you can use a power washer to clean it.

RE: Plumbing pressure relief

Drain the water heater and refill it, that will re-establish the air pocket in the tank and allow for expansion. See your water heater owners manual for more information. Or just turn off the pump and drain a small amount out. Then turn the pump back on without using 6-10 gallons of water.

RE: looking for info

This place should work for you, Island Resort Family Campground I'd recommend a site between 76 and 93. Afternoon shade while looking out over the lake. 8 minutes to Berlin. 23 minutes to the big parking lot at the inlet in OC.

RE: Albany NY to Newport, VT

Can't help you on the other side of Albany, but if you do not intend to visit New York City and all the traffic associated with it, I would try this route to Albany, Avoid NYC

RE: Toilet Mystery

So it is not coming from the plumbing. It did not come from the black tank. It did not come from the sky. I'd consider it a biblical event as in, "only the Lord knows how that could happen" and check the toilet daily to see if it starts to fill again.

RE: Toilet Mystery

Do you have the built in black tank rinser? Maybe you left the hose connected too long and the tank backed up into the toilet, then when you drained the tank the toilet didn't run back? If the seals pushed out enough to let water into the toilet, it surely it would have slowly leaked back down into the black tank. And the water would not have been clean if coming up from the black tank.

RE: I Like Verizon, But.....

We just replaced our phones we had for 3 years and they were year old freebies at the time so 4 years old. The new phones get much better service. As newer versions of 4G and 5G become available the companies do not improve or maintain the older versions. I'm guessing it may be time for the original poster to upgrade.

RE: Toilet Mystery

Was the toilet lid open? Check the plastic crank open vent right above the toilet for cracks. They dry rot over the years. If no water hooked to lines I'm guessing rain water from above.

RE: Something I've not seen before.

My first thought when looking at the pictures is there is no lubrication between the hitch and the pin box. With all that rust and friction when turning it could have already had cracks in the welds before the turn-over.

RE: Avoiding Low clearance routes

What I have seen is if the campground has any low bridges nearby they will have notes about it on their website and directions telling you how to avoid them from major routes.

RE: Durability of Command strip hooks and hangers?

If you can find them, get the outdoor command strips. They will handle the temp extremes better. They have blue on the strips.

RE: Installing a safe?

Really folks, if it is a hidden compartment and there is no drug dog keying on it, how would they know to confiscate you vehicle? Only if they asked you if you made any hidden compartments in your vehicle and you actually told them you have. If a safe is inside your RV and can't be seen through the open door, without probable cause no PO has any reason to enter and perform a search without a warrant. Put in your safe and bolt it down.

RE: Toy Hauler Toy Selection

Honda recently came out with theseTrail 125s. Small, good ground clearance and street legal. Many used to haul the Trail 90's around on the back bumpers of trailers in the 70's.

RE: Leaking Bunk End

I once had a dealer tell me RV's are the only thing he's ever seen water leaks go up on. In other words your leak may not be at the bed end. It may be getting forced in somewhere else and then traveling to where it can get out of the wall. You may have to get the unit pressure tested to find the leak. I would start up on the roof with fresh self level everywhere.

RE: Chairs i bought at Camping World No Good nothing done!!

Anything shipped must be inspected upon receipt. Waiting past 30 days you can almost guarantee you accepted what you got. And it's not just CW. I've been looking at pressure washers at the big home improvement stores. Reading the reviews about people buying them in the fall on sale and not using them until spring to find something wrong with them, and then the company won't do anything because it is past 3 months. Made me put off my purchase until I can use it when I buy it.

RE: Installing a safe?

Bolt it down. Just make sure if the other side of the bolt is accessible that you use carriage bolts on the outside. Don't fret about it being too easy to open at night. Just put the handgun on the nightstand at night. Lock it up in the morning if you are not carrying it.

RE: Intermittent 12v current drop when on shore power

My guess would be the converter. And just so you don't end up with a lot more problems down the road, you do not have a 240 volt system.

RE: Best way to clear grit and sand out of 7 pin plug??

Duhh? Take it apart, wash thoroughly with soap and water using a toothbrush to get in crannies, rinse and let dry and put it back together. Duhh? Not all of them come apart. Some are molded together at the factory.

RE: Best way to clear grit and sand out of 7 pin plug??

I would not use any spray until you get as much as possible out with air. Wet sand sticks unless it is very wet. Add in an oily mixture like wd-40 and it will stick forever. If you are talking about the pigtail I would disconnect the battery in the trailer, unplug the camper and dip that pigtail into a bucket of water. Move it around, shake it, force water into it maybe even use a hose to flush the sand out. After it is clean hit it with the air to get it dry. Then add whatever you use on your pins normally. But if you are going back to the sandbox I wouldn't put any lubricant in there unless you plan on putting a plastic bag over it when not hooked up. And it wouldn't hurt to wrap it with plastic when it is hooked up.
