RE: Re-sealing roof with Dicor

Why do people keep using such a product as self-leveling Dicor? ... Same reason the maker of the coaches do. Last 10-15 years, reasonable priced, and isn't labor intensive. The Dicor failure rate is on coaches that are not maintained and the roof is 10-15 years old. Cracks have formed and water got deep enough to get under the caulk. On a 10-15 year old coach does it really make sense to put a 30-40 year repair job on? That RV may only last another 5-15 years. JMO Makes complete sense to me not to use Dicor. I have never seen Dicor last much more then 5 years, have seen it fail well before that. Gaco Roof is all I use now. Comes in a gallon and paint it right over Dicor on all seams and around all roof, fridge and other vents. It has a 50 year warranty. Dicor cracks open and I have had Eternabond fail on me 2 times on 2 different RVs. And yes they were both prepped properly. I have used this product on rubber, fiberglass, rolled asphalt and metal roofs. Never again will I fall victim to Dicor. Pogoil. "Never again will I fall victim to Dicor." You do know that Gaco is silicone and is not recommended for rubber RV roofs :E. I was impressed with that stuff till I read it was 100% silicone. Now I wonder how long it will adhere for the guys I saw that put it on. Maybe a couple of years before it starts peeling when they twist their foot while washing the roof? Yep sure do and it has been on 2 of the 3 rubber roofs I have done for almost 3 years no signs of any lifting any where on the roof. When I applied it I spoke to the technical department at Gaco and he said the petroleum distillates in it would not hurt the rubber roof and sent me a test kit to check adhesion. Am not sure if they still recommend it for rubber roofs but at the time they did. I will use this product till I find a better one but this appears to beat Dicor hands down. I stand by my words, Best roof sealant I have ever used. So far the roofs I have done and the several friends that have used it have had no failures. I will say this, if the roof or your shoes are wet you will fall all the way to the ground. Slick and very shiny surface. Stuff does not seem to stick or grow on it. www.gacoretail.com/gacoroof.html Pogoil.

RE: Perfect Camping Grill/Smoker

I will add this, I have BBQ-ed on a Weber when we first got married when life was simpler before kids. Swore it was the best method. My BBQ amazed neighbors and friends. Did this for first 5 years. When the kids came along and life was more hectic I switched to gas for speed and convenience and yes my food quality suffered. Did this for next 10 years. Went back to Weber Kettle for next 10 years and got back high quality food. But for the last year I have been experimenting with a Trager portable we bought for the MH. At first I was not convinced but after a few uses I was. Let me tell you I am fully convinced that the best food is coming off it. Now when I get home from a trip the Trager gets unloaded and put on my back patio to use at home as well. Tri Tips, ribs, pork butt, brisket, chicken, pizza, pork chops, you name it. All of it is better from the pellet smoker. For what it is worth the Trager is much less cost than the Green Mountain. But when my Trager burns up I will explore the Green Mountain because of the ability to hold a small turkey. Pogoil.

RE: Filling and Dumping while on a trip

Ive seen people crack their gray water dump valve and then they let it drip out while the drive on down the road. I am a motorcycle rider so I would never do that...........after being on the bad side of it!! My mother let a friend "camp" in her yard in Florida last year and the guy was nice enough to dump both tanks in her yard before he left. He was a friend of theirs and when they called him on it, he said it wasn't him. Who else could it have been? There was poop and toilet paper all over the ground!! Then he said it must have dumped on its own, that perhaps the valve opened. Ive been camping for 40 years and have never seen a black water valve open on its own. It is people like this that cause dump stations to close and more and more this is happening plus many campgrounds are not letting people use their dump station unless staying the night. The me me me people create problems for all. Dumping a tank like this will get you a huge fine in many states. Pogoil.

RE: Redding, CA to Grants Pass, OR I-5

No problem at all I 5 is an Interstate. Routes to the coast are a little curvy. Just did the route from Redding yesterday cut across at Grants Pass to the coast. 34 feet towing a 4 door Jeep. Traveled this route about 20 times. Pogoil.

RE: When will RV Manufacturers be concerned with quality?

In 1995. Go back in time to find quality. It is sad but true. Think I will keep mine a few more years. Pogoil.

RE: How to clean roof (can't get on it) ??

Many parks have people who come and wash RVs. I see you are from Portland, they must have many who do mobile detail and could come to your home. Pogoil.

RE: emergency exit windows in motorhomes

If the windows slide open and are wide enough they are escape windows. Owner must either jump or provide a rope ladder to go down. Pogoil.

RE: Update on Nashville Officer killed by Motorhome

Everyone can learn from this. Evidence seems to show he did wrong. His life should be forever changed. As the person he killed and his family is forever changed. Slow down, pay attention. And get training if you have never driven a large vehicle. Large vehicles require one to drive at their best as situations arise quickly. Did I say SLOW DOWN? Drives me nuts when people say to new owners easy as a car to drive. No training needed. That is not all there is to driving a large vehicle. Some are challanged driving a small car. Pogoil.

RE: Michelin vs Toyo

70 percent of the population buys on price and 30 percent buy on quality. Quality is exactly what you get when you buy TOYO tires. Just so happens they cost less too. Sidewall cracks and blowouts seem to be less than some of the other brands. Pogoil.

RE: Michelin vs Toyo

Toyos 154 replaced GY. Tires are great. Almost 30,000 miles on them. When I buy again it will be Toyo. Pogoil.

RE: Looking to spend between 20-50k. any recommendations?

I would go the PPL route, offer $2000 less and buy tires with the savings. I personally have the 8.3 larger version of the 5.9. but use a 5.9 when I help a friend with harvest and the 5.9 tows 22 thousand pounds of fruit plus the truck weighs 8000 plus for a total of 30,000 pounds. Truck has 183 thousand miles and no major repairs, runs like a top. You will not be the first to the top of a hill but who cares. That coach probably weighs around 24,0000 pounds. Pogoil.

RE: Looking to spend between 20-50k. any recommendations?

Nothing will run flawlessly!! Even a brand new coach. I would take my 20 year old MH. over many of the newer coaches. Country Coach is in business right here in Oregon. Pogoil.

RE: Looking to spend between 20-50k. any recommendations?

Hi, What ever you buy make sure chassis parts are still readily available. I would not buy something more than about 5 years old. Plastic parts last about ten years. After that they become increasingly brittle. REALLY, My Beaver is 20 years old, everything on it is pretty much original. Of course I have replaced the tires and updated the interior. Only appliance that was replaced was water heater as previous owner let it freeze and crack but it still worked. Back to OP. question, check PPL Motorhomes on the Net. Pogoil.

RE: What would you buy for a $175,000?

I would buy a $75,000 MH. and put the rest in the bank. Pogoil.

RE: Parking Lot Ethics

4-5 years ago I talked to a guy in a Class C who said he had been out about 6 weeks and had only spent 2 nights in a campground. He was spending every night in Walmart parking lots. I asked him where he resupplied water and he said a lot of the larger gas stations/truck stops had water. I asked him where he dumped sewer. He said at night he would run his sewer hose in a ditch, empty his gray and black tanks then leave before daylight. Remember this when Walmarting - If you don't support the local campgrounds then don't expect them to be there the next time you're thru the area and need a campground. If enough people Walmart the campground owners might not still be in business. You're driving a $100,000+ rig and set up. Cough up the $30 to support our hobby. I agree with you, we have never and will never use a walmart to camp at. X3
