RE: Propane tank soft covers

A soft cover will need replaced within a few years. Cover must be removed to access valve. A hard cover will last just about forever. An opening is provided for accessing valves without removing cover.

RE: Propane fill question

Sorry 40 pound cylinder holds 32 pounds. Math is perfect. A cylinder with 40# capacity takes 40# LPG to fill. The rule is 80% of WC (water capacity) NOT LPG capacity.

RE: Who Leaves the on-demand Pump On

We try to remember to turn it off when leaving the campsite. There is no benefit to constantly be turning it off and on.

RE: Propane fill question

So the lp gas weighs 4.11 pounds per gallon. A 40 pound tank at 80% would hold 32 gallons. That would be 131 pounds. A 20 pound tank at 80% would be 65 pounds. What :h First off the discussion is about DOT cylinders, not tanks, secondly, your math makes no sense.

RE: Propane fill question

I don't understand all the confusion on this subject which gets rehashed regularly. An LPG cylinder is filled to 80% of WC (water capacity). That means a 40# rated cylinder holds, guess what, 40# of LPG when filled to 80% of WC. The total weight of the full cylinder should be the LPG capacity of 40# plus the TW (tare weight).

RE: Income Tax for Full Timers

I don't think you can put a PO box on a driver's license so your official IRS address would be whatever is on your driver's license.

RE: cracked kitchen flooring

Throw a rug on it.

RE: How to Get the Stink Out of Bathroom

The KISS concept would be to locate where the fumes are leaking from and fix the leak rather than buy questionable gimmick products.

RE: HELP with power dist center WF 8914

Sometimes if we cannot find where a line is open, we just pull a new wire.

RE: RV Waste Disposal?

No way we can know but hopefully it is tied into the sewer/septic system.

RE: Newbie ~ electrical problem

If it was mine, I would disconnect the negative/ground wire from the battery and connect a portable charger until the service department looks at it. BTW, you have a CO detector, not a CO2 detector. There should also be an LPG detector.

RE: Wrong magazine in pkg. w/ Dingy towing issue

Moved from tech issues This is a Good Sam Enterprises issue but has nothing to do with the Good Sam 'Club'.

RE: Rv Lifestyle Sticky: I

It is simply a running thread of the experiences of Ara and Spirit who are on a sort of a unique rv vennture; tenting with a motorcycle over a period of several years. We just thought this 'alternative' approach may be of interest to the readers. Ara and Spirit also use other forums in the same way essentially for free advertising of their blog. I don't get it and think it is probably inappropriate to practice favoritism in this way.

RE: Do you use your kitchen.

We always use the kitchen but carry a portable stove for the rare large meal that we need more burner space. I can't imagine doing all the extra work of preparing food outside rather than in our perfectly good kitchen.

RE: GFCI Risks? Update

If everything is working fine except for the ground fault, it could be neutral and ground are bonded somewhere. On mine it was a Romex staple that cut the insulation and shorted/bonded the neutral and ground together. To find the defective circuit I had to open the breaker panel and disconnect the neutrals and then reconnect one at a time.

RE: Which GPS bean bag holder?

Since this thread has veered of course I will throw this out; I predict that GPS units will be outdated soon. On a recent trip I used "Waze" on my phone. The Waze app is a community-based traffic and navigation app. You and other drivers enter info as you travel plus it monitors your speed. The app uses this info to warn other drivers of slow downs, accidents, vehicles on the side of the road and even active police radar units. Traffic was heavy and without me doing anything the phone app told me to leave I95 and routed me on an alternative route to avoid a slowdown.

RE: running on 12/v battery

Yes, the furnace runs on LPG and 12v from the battery.

RE: ? Hobo Pie

What you make in pie irons is limited only by your imagination. One of my favorites is a Ruben. Bread, corned beef, thousand island dressing, sauerkraut. We also do 'egg in a basket' for breakfast.

RE: Is there any brush you can clean slide out from ground ?

If I was to devise one, I would start by bending some EMT and incorporating that with an extendable handle.

RE: RV Owner Questions

How long have you owned your RV? Which one? What type is it? Which one? How long do you plan on keeping it before selling it or trading it in? No idea.
