RE: Residential refrigerator door shelf failures

I had one break on my home fridge. I used glue (I think Gorilla Glue from the colour) Its been holding now for about 5 years. The repair is not visible behind the clear shelf. Mine broke because of a heavy load in it and getting bumped getting something else out. Ken

RE: Residential fridge door locks

Walmart or Amazon etc. Baby department. Lots or choices for child (adult) proofing items, many are applied with 3M adhesive tape. Maybe one that sticks on the side of the fridge/cabinet and the other end on the door Ken

RE: Refrigerator

Turned off? While in storage, days or week. traveling, 6-8 hours. or accidentally turned off. How full is it, refrigerated cold foods, large thermal mass takes longer to cool down. How often is the fridge door opened? Ambient temps outside 40 or 60 or 90, at back of fridge and inside RV, air conditioning running. Personally, if not running for 6 hours in daytime, fridge half full, temps around 85, I would not trust any perishables, throw the milk out. Ken

RE: Replace air conditioner

If yours is built into the roof, like many Roadtreks, its not as simple as the 4 bolts. Google/YouTube is your friend Roadtrek A/C replacement. Ken

RE: Storage RV lot with GFIC breakers

Is it the GFCI tripping or the actual circuit breaker that feeds the gfci outlets that is tripping? Sometimes GFCI outlets don't play well together and will trip the first one one line (my experience several times). Try turning off the circuit breaker in your MH panel that feeds your GFCI outlet(s) and see if that corrects the problem. No cost, just a little time, probably more time when you forget to turn it back on when using the MH. Ken

RE: Should I re-winterize?

As Grandpa Kip said "peace of mind". Minimal cost and time, rather than finding out next camping trip that you have a problem. You might be OK, But!! How accurate is your weatherman. Ken

RE: RV salvage

Ford engine parts are fairly easy! There is nothing fancy or RV only for drive train parts. You can get some good parts at an auto/ light truck salvage yard. What do you need exactly? X2. One advantage of a c-class. Ken

RE: Tire aspect ratio

Actually check tire info sticker in the drivers door jamb. That will give you the correct size and specs that Ram recommends for that specific vehicle. It's possible that a previous owner put on a different size and spec tire, just to save money. I Ken
Beverley&Ken 03/23/22 10:10pm Tow Vehicles

Just stop on the side of the road, before entering the gas station. Make sure of your entrance AND exit before entering. We always starting looking for gas at the 1/2 tank mark, stops were usually required for other reasons. Never have I had to unhook the car to get fuel. Ken

RE: Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems

What type of system does your LazyDays have? If it is TST, they have a kit with the four sensors and a REPEATER to add on there system. If not TST they also have a 4 sensor kit with repeater and Monitor. Most systems are not interchangeable with other manufacturers. Ken

RE: Tioga Won't Budge after long neglect. Help, please.

There's a good possibility that your brakes are 'seized' or badly rusted. Service brakes or parking brake. You may have released the parking brake pedal, but the actual brake may still be on. Also the service brake rotors, pads could be badly rusted. The extra power and traction from the tow truck may be enough to free them up to be towed. When you get it home, time for a good inspection of all. Ken

RE: Burlington, VT to Nigara Falls, can.

You can take that route, but other than Canadian scenery, you might not like the rest of the drive. Currently the price gas on that route is about $5.5-0 / gallon factoring in the current exchange rate. I would go down to the Lake Champlain Bridge and across 8 to Rome and west from there across the south side of Lake Ontario. x2 from Oshawa area (east of Toronto to Hamilton (west end of Lake Ontario) your scenery will be cars, trucks, cars, trucks and highway signs. If you are one that would avoid Atlanta traffic, you would also want to avoid the Toronto area highways, and from New England, the best way would be south of Lake Ontario through New York. Sites, let us know what you are interested in, nature, history, wineries, lots of everything in the Niagara area beyond the actual Falls. Ken

RE: owners manual

Manuals for older RVs, well they were not the best, even when new. Your best bet would be to make a list of all the appliances, stove, fridge, water heater, furnace etc. that are in your trailer. Get the make, model# etc and google search for the individual manuals. I've owned two Bonair popup trailers in the 80s and early 90s. Bonair was a smaller Quebec company that primarily made popup,s before trying the hard body trailers. Bonair closed their doors (out of business??) in the early 2000s. Gimme Shelter RV, Shelburne, ON , They were long time dealers for Bonair until Bonair's demise. Gimme Shelters owners Keith and Suzy, could probably answer any questions you need about Bonair, but for most of the RV issues, you will probably get all the answers here. Plumbing, wiring (12v and 120v) is similar in all trailers, just adapted for individual units. Converters, appliances etc are all manufactured by individual companies and then installed in the trailer by Bonair or other RV manufacturer. Ken

RE: Fuse location - 2007 Concord

Each MH manufacturer could wide them differently. On our 06 Winnebago E450, radio power comes from either Ford chassis or house batteries. Winnebago ran sides from the house system under the can floor carpet to a switch in the panel by the drivers left knee, they also modified the Ford wiring and then brought the two Ford not sides (radio memory and radio operating) to the switch. It is labelled Radio House Batteries or Ford chassis batteries). When camping it allows use of the radio without killing the chassis battery. It's possible that the power for the mirrors is also picked up in this area as well. I honestly don't know which system powers my mirrors. I I also read that one RV manufacturer ran the sides from the house batteries to the dash area through the stepwell and had inline fuses under the plastic drivers step cover. Ken

RE: Missing catalytic converter

As Ava and Jax have said, in my area they stolen, not for resale as a unit, but for the metal, in particular the precious metal (platinum??) inside. The precious metal is taken out and then the remaining metal is discarded separately. There is a metal recycling company that pays XX$ a 100lbs. They don’t even look at it before going in the crusher. It’s inconvenient and mildly expensive (with insurance) for most people, but can be VERY inconvenient and expensive for some. Last year a company in the area found out. 7 cube work vans, 7 missing catalytic converters missing Monday morning. 7+ employees without trucks to drive to the job sites unknown if they were paid) , 7 disappointed customers and the owner (and his insurance) with a $20000 repair bill.

RE: Upgrading 2007 Aspect 26A Rearview Camera system

It does sound very similar to mine. I took mine apart to run a wire for the Bluetooth microphone for the new radio/cell phone. My monitor is still working, touch wood, but it is getting dimmer, now need the brightness turned up full. The camera appears ok. Can’t remember the make. Ken

RE: Upgrading 2007 Aspect 26A Rearview Camera system

A picture would help, but if it is the same mounting as our 06 Winnebago Outlook. Mine is mounted in a plastic housing hanging down from the overhead above the windshield. There is a metal bracket screwed to the overhead (in our case the bottom of the bunk). The monitor is mounted in the plastic housing and the the housing and the housing just snaps onto the bracket. In my case, I used a thin plastic dash removal tool, with a bit of a hook on it. I worked it in between the ceiling and housing on the sides, hooking onto the side of housing and GENTLY pulling out while also pulling down. Ken

RE: DVD player Setup

After you changed TV setting from cable to antenna (over the air) you may have to rescan the TV to pick up over the air channels, the modulator connected to the DVD player probably by RCA cables, turns the signals into VHF format for viewing on your TV. ch 3 or 4 was used so it didn’t interfere with an active VHF station in the area. Again rescan TV Ken

RE: Skating in Ottawa

When I was a bit younger, well about 50 years ago, a local conservation would flood the walking hiking trails for skating. Another city would convert the sidewalks in the central park for skating. It was nice exercise and scenic skating in the woods or outdoor parks. Cold, all relative. I looked out my window this afternoon, a man jogging by wearing a sweat shirt and shorts, it was only -18 Celsius (~0 F) Ken

RE: Water system going crazy help!!

I'm thinking the check valve at the pump has failed. When running the pump it allows the pressure to drop as water leaks back into the tank. When hooked up to city water it allows water to go into the on-board tank overfilling it. X2 Ken
