RE: rotten egg smell

We have never had strong odors from the gray water so I wonder what you are putting in the system. You can put the black tank treatment of your choice in the gray tank. When I thick of sulfur (rotten egg) smell my first thoughts go to a boiling battery and secondly to an LPG leak.

Wow, sounds like you were seriously misled but also made some errors on your end. It sounds very odd but I will not beat up on you without having witnessed what happened. One thing I will suggest, we froze our credit years ago at all three credit agencies making identity theft or any errors like this impossible.

RE: Best place to buy A&E awning tube with fabric?

The shipping for a roller tube will be very expensive. Unless it is bent, just replace the fabric.

RE: 100# Propane Cylinder Transport

It is against the law (and common sense due to the danger should anything happen) to haul any LP tank laying down It must be upright and also secured, larger tanks are usually installed, filled and maintained by the company that will supply the LP gas. If you are going to give legal advice you should at least use the correct terminology. The first things you refer to are vertical DOT cylinders. BTW, there are also horizontal DOT cylinders.

RE: Frustrating furnace issue

A single stage regulator like for a BBQ grille is not approved for RV use. You need to be sure that you use a dual stage regulator and that it is correctly oriented. There are horizontal models and vertical models.

RE: Body Shifted Slightly Off Frame

I wouldn't necessarily run but am suspicious of the 1/4" thing. Knowing how they are built, in order for the body to shift 1/4" it would require that every screw between the frame and floor be sheared.

RE: Fexperience w/ Excel tankless & ventless water heaters?

Those are available under a lot of different names. They are not intended to be used inside a living space. I have seen a couple of pop up owners that mounted them on the outside. Look at the fittings, they are garden hose connections.

RE: Propane Fire Pits

We love our Little Red campfire. The cost is comparable to campground wood but the advantages are tremendous. It is nice to simply turn the fire off and on rather than spend two hours trying to get a decent fire going with wet, green, campground wood. We also use it inside our 10x10 shelter with wind walls and no worries about sparks burning the nylon.

RE: Replacing / Upgrading Electrical Panel

No benefit to replacing the electrical panel but there may be benefit to replacing the converter. What brand and model converter does it have?

RE: Awning Help

Drill, hack saw, and file a new slot in the cap. You might want to add some new rivets on each side of the new slot.

RE: Moving trailer for wheels

Any benefit is so minimal that it is not worth the bother.

RE: A new way to get around a campground!

https://images.indiegogo.com/file_attachments/345650/files/20140202223731-URB-E-GP2.jpg?1391409451 height=300 Combine the extremely short wheel base with tiny diameter tires and it creates a dangerous vehicle. Hit a pot hole - do a face plant. I am considering an electric assist bicycle but no way would I buy that scooter.

RE: Keystone vs Jayco vs Forest River vs Grand Design

My short list would be Northwood products or Grand Design. Unfortunately Grand Design has been sold so I expect it to become just another of the many junk quality RVs.

RE: On Board Generator vs Portable Generator

I love the convenience of our LPG fueled built in Onan. However I opt to use the portable when the larger genset isn't needed like for charging batteries.

RE: Vinegar and baking soda in holding tanks?

I have never had any need to "clean" the waste tanks.

RE: Sealing exterior joints ?

I am considering using Dicor Seal Design Seal-tite corner seal tape. It requires R&R of the corner trim but should be a permanent seal.

RE: Installed Fantastic Vent fan

The Fantastic Vent fan is a marvelous product but I chose to replace the bath fan with a Vortex fan. The Vortex does not require removing the vent and is much less expensive. I installed the single speed Vortex and added a separate speed control.

RE: Dispersed camping protocol

Humans for the most part are herd animals and tend to congregate. A few are more independent and prefer solitude.

RE: Dispersed camping protocol

Must admit I never heard the term 'dispersed camping' until this thread. Are we not using 'boondocking' any more.... Ever been to US government websites? "Dispersed camping" is the official terminology used by the government for public lands.
