RE: Installation of an electric jack to a flatbed trailer

I did exactly that to a trailer using 1" spacers. Looking back on it, using pipe nipples as spacers may have been the simplest way.

RE: furnace fuse blowing

...I doubt there's a short...tried a 20 amp fuse which proceeded to blow immediately.... When a fuse opens immediately it most likely is the result of a dead short. Either a wire or the motor itself is providing a direct path to ground. In case you aren't aware, full 12vdc power goes through the thermostat, don't forget to look there.

RE: Dewinterizing systems

My driveway. RV antifreeze is nontoxic, in fact it is in many coffee flavorings. Why do you have antifreeze in your tanks? I winterize the entire rig with less than one gallon.

RE: Shopping for first motorhome, question about making offers.

There is no simple rule. You need to determine the general value range for that specific brand and model MH. Then you need to determine its value to you. Keep in mind you are not buying an investment that will make a profit. You are buying a vehicle that will provide many non-tangible benefits to you and your family. Price accordingly.

RE: Water heater help needed

When the valve handle is perpendicular to the pipe, it is closed. When the valve handle is parallel to the pipe it is open. Only the valve in the bypass pipe should be closed.

RE: Things I don't understand

Last night! A guy pulls into the CG towing like a 45 ft fiver! He takes out the small rock wall on each of the 3 left turns! He gets out b _ _ _ _ _ ing about how stupid the campground is laid out!!! So of course DW and I went over to chat with them. It's their first rig! They sold everything, bought their first truck and camper and are full timing it! This was their second stop! I offered to give him some pointers and his response, "I'm from the school of live and learn." I told him about the forum. "I don't have time for that ****." Man, I wish I could follow him around for the entertainment value! With a video camera so you could share!

RE: Water heater heater

I don't intend on reading a 21 page thread on another forum to get the story. I think hydronic heating will become more common to replace the very inefficient forced air furnaces. Here is a system that is already used in some RVs; Alde hydronic heating

RE: LP Tank check.

Interesting device but I've never been an early adopter type. I'll wait until the technology is proven effective. I have two 30# bottles. One bottle has a float inside with a gauge on top. I always use the non-gauge bottle first and the gauge equipped bottle second.

RE: What about the RVIA Sticker ?

Don't forget that most regulations only pertain to the manufacturer or a person/business doing significant modifications but not to an owner.

RE: furnace fuse blowing

The simple answer is that your furnace is pulling more than 15 amps. The trick is determining why which will require more sleuthing. Under normal conditions the furnace will pull 7 to 9 amps. You've received some good tips on where to look.

RE: Things I don't understand

That is easy to answer. Occasionally when the OP doesn't get the response they want, they will either delete or edit the OP. If the OP has been quoted in its entirety the deletion doesn't matter.How do you know this?Because it's happened many times.No, I mean how do you know that a first poster who quotes the entire OP is doing it for this reason? I know why I do it.

RE: Things I don't understand

I do not understand why the first responder in a post quotes the entire OP. That is easy to answer. Occasionally when the OP doesn't get the response they want, they will either delete or edit the OP. If the OP has been quoted in its entirety the deletion doesn't matter.

RE: Propane leak (smell )

This won't exactly find your leak but you might be able to glean some useful information. Make your own RV U Tube Manometer!

RE: Propane leak (smell )

Check the stove controls, they can get bumped easily.

RE: Things I don't understand

True story relative to not using the toilet in your RV; We were camping with some friends and they had a strict rule to not soil their toilet. The female half of the couple had the scoots due to something she ate. She also was fearful of going to the public facilities on her own. She came knocking on our door to ask my wife to go with her. She stood outside our trailer doing the potty dance while waiting for my wife to dress. I guess she made it to the facilities without accident but my wife and I still get a good laugh whenever this topic comes up. It really is hilarious that someone would voluntarily put themselves through this.

RE: What about the RVIA Sticker ?

The sticker only means the manufacturer is a member and the RV was built in compliance with RVIA standards. To you as the owner, the sticker means nothing.

RE: Kudos to Lippert

Really rare to hear something good about Lippert. Although to be fair, only their customer service is being congratulated since their control pad has failed twice in less than two years. Will you be needing another one in six months? :)

RE: Battery terminals question

The battery in the front of the travel trailer that you use when there is no power at campgroundNo, that blue line means to click the link to read about 'what battery?' LOL Next time oldman please give constructive advise thank you I'm convinced that providing you with a previous multiple page discussion on your subject was constructive. That is, if you would actually take the time to read the thread that was linked. You are new here, all of your questions have probably been asked and answered many times before. Providing a link alleviates the necessity of having the same discussion all over again.

RE: Glass replacement 09 fun runner.

For me the process would be take it to the local automotive glass company and have them replace it. You may be able to remove the fixed pane "the glass that does not slide back and forth" yourself and take it alone to the auto glass company.

RE: Insurance claim

A flooded trailer is a totaled trailer, don't let the insurance company tell you different. Remember, everything is negotiable. Gather your receipts for any upgrades you have made. Start researching what similar trailers are selling for. The first offer they make will be a low ball offer that they expect only fools will accept. Progressive is a 'high risk' insurance company and is developing a reputation for refusing claims for ridiculous reasons.
