RE: My Fridge Died

Up to you of course! Gotta take the fridge out anyways to fix it, wouldn't take long to try it. It's actually not that bad to remove. I had mine out on the floor in about half an hour. Short term fix? Like anything, it's a tumble of the dice. 6 years later mine was still going strong, and I know the guy I sold it to. Last time I talked to him it was still working. Good luck on your repair, hope it doesn't cost too much. :) Let us know the outcome.

RE: My Fridge Died

Charlie this may be a long shot, but let me explain how I resurrected my fridge when it died. I tried everything to make it work, but no sale on that deal. It lit, the burner, 12V was fine etc but no cooling. I was FT for 2 Alberta winters and it was really cold out. The fridge died exhibiting the symptoms you describe. I bought a small bar fridge to hold me over until I could replace / repair my unit in the spring. I removed the fridge from the TT and took it outside to the parking lot of where I was set up. I then "took it for a walk" From the upright position, I laid it over on its side, waited I think about 30 seconds, may have been longer, a minute or 2, don't recall for sure. Then I turned it upside down and let it sit a for the same amount of time. Then on its side again, then back upright and so on, waiting in between flipping it. I repeated this process about 20 times or so (20 complete cycles from upright to upright), finishing with it in the upright position. I gave it about 15 minutes, then reinstalled it. I then waited for quite a number of hours, it may have been overnight, again, don't recall for sure. After the wait was over, I turned it back on and voila!! Success!! The fridge not only resumed operation, but worked 100% like a champ for the next few years until I sold it! It was I believe the spring of 2015 when I did that, and I sold the unit last fall, the fridge still working perfectly. I figure a chunk of something internal came loose and blocked a pipe, and "taking it for a walk" dislodged it. It's worth a try before you spend a gob of money and a bunch of effort on a new cooling unit or replacement fridge. What have you got to lose? Mine was a 1997 model Dometic. **On edit, I think it was maybe only about 10 times that I rolled it over, not 20. and I think I left it for at least a couple minutes in each position. Seems to me it took about an hour once the fridge was out. It has been a while, I forget exactly**

RE: Where have all the members gone on this forum?

I'm still here! Do I count? :B Have to admit, I'm in here almost every day, mainly lurking, reading stuff, posting here and there, not so often any more. I don't do Wastebook of myface or yourspace or flutter, twistedgram or twitface or any of those things. For me it's a waste of time. I like this forum, always have. But yeah, I've seen a lot of folks come and go, and many just disappear. But I'm still here! And somebody, somewhere, owns a camper that they bought used and they are wondering why every time when they turn on the furnace the camper smells like butter. :B Lol! I'll never live that one down!

RE: Where have all the members gone on this forum?

An interesting observation in this thread: I notice that the majority of those of us who posted here are the really long timers on this forum. Many joined 2001 thru 2005-6. I was 2003. And of course some other long timers, just not quite as long. Nice to see a bunch of the oldies here gather for this party! Pass me a beer please...:B

RE: Nubs on stabilizer rod worn down. Can these be replaced?

Another vote for Fisherman's solution. Perfect. So much easier with a socket and cordless drill.

RE: Pulling new heater duct

Replacing ducts would be a tall task. They are all joined together, there are corners and jogs etc. Existing ones likely have some kind of duct / foil tape sealing them. They will be attached to the floor in various places. Ducts are all installed while the unit is being built, prior to assembly of floor sheeting and more. Anything can be done, but you'd have to open up the floor to access them. "Pulling" the ducts is not an option. IMO, the best option would be to clean the existing ducts. Get in there with some kind of flexible snake with a cloth on the end, wet with a cleaner. You could even remove the furnace, take it apart and thoroughly clean everything. Spiral round flexible pipe is a great dirt trap. They are full of ridges inside and air will not flow smoothly. Have a look at the Floor section of my rebuild site, link in sig. It shows one example of heat ducts. There are many other ways they do it.

RE: My Microsoft Mail has suddenly been reformated

Good work Mike!! Regarding the content, I have seen this before in my Gmail. For some inexplicable reason the occasional email gets messed up like that and shows the actual coding content rather than the readable message. I cannot answer why it does this. With me it is very occasional and random. Do all your emails show up scrambled like that or is it just the one you showed?

RE: My Microsoft Mail has suddenly been reformated

I can get a screen picture but my problem is showing it to you. I can send it by regular email but not post it. I know there's a way. Working on it. Mike if you use the link that 1492 provided, and time2roll (same info), it brings up a page like this: Follow the instructions, drag & drop or select file, making sure it is in one of the listed formats. It will return this: Then just copy the whole thing as displayed and paste it here into your post. The image will have been uploaded to this site, and will show in your post. BTW, I did a screenshot of the above pics. Win 10 Home on my laptop. Hold the Windows logo key down, press Shift and S, then release all 3 keys at the same time. This will bring up the screen to copy. Use your mouse, click and hold the mouse button down and drag a box around the area you want to capture. It will show a box in the lower right. Click that, screenshot will open, select Save. Be sure you know where your default Save To directory is.

RE: My Microsoft Mail has suddenly been reformated

Can you do a screenshot of what you see? That will freeze it exactly as you see it. What device / computer and OS are you experiencing this on?

RE: How long has your AC run ?

Mines a 2007, it is still going strong. The unit on my 97 and 95 TT's both worked perfect when I sold them. My thought is don't mend what ain't broken. And I have always felt that old stuff was built better than new stuff. I had a portable window AC I bought from Sears in 1974. I dragged it with me wherever I went, house after house. I even once rigged it into the window of an old TT years ago. I finally gave it away 2 years ago, still working flawlessly as it did from day 1, with zero service in 46 years.

RE: Remember to keep alert while driving..

Wow Mitch, that was a close call! Any closer and it could have been through your windshield. Good driving, always better to not swerve while towing.

RE: Dually tire service/installation

Pulling your leg.... Tires are balanced before bolting them on, after mounting on the rim. It doesn't matter if they are inner, outer or on the front.

RE: BC ferries work for the smaller routes.

Steve, I've done those routes many times in the course of doing homeshows for my sunroom business, and building them. They are all straightforward, just have to read the BC Ferries schedules carefully. It's been a few years now since I used to do those runs, I doubt they have changed much. If I was going to Powell River I would pay once at Horseshoe Bay. (West Van) That would get me to Langdale. From there I'd drive to Earl's Cove, where I would not have to pay to cross to Saltery Bay, a short drive from Powell. Same thing in reverse, pay once to make the 2 sailings getting back to the mainland. Crossing from Powell to Vancouver Island, you pay at Powell River to cross to Comox and the other way too. From there you drive south to Nanaimo or Victoria to use one of the 3 crossing points to get back to the mainland. My preference was Duke Point. Half an hour longer, but a nice run, and a terminal kinda out of the way, more peaceful I found. I liked to use the ferry time to relax, enjoy the view and the pleasant smell of the open ocean air. I preferred crossing to Tsawwassen to avoid the always heavy traffic going east on Hwy 1 and over the Port Mann from Horseshoe Bay. Even after replacing the bridge there's a high volume of traffic there. Doing the Powell/Comox crossing, a nice stop is Texada. Small island but it's a really nice drive going around there looking at the scenery. I built a big solarium on Texada years ago and really enjoyed the area. It's been years now and I cannot recall if you can stop at Texada without paying twice. You'd have to check the ferries website. As a sidenote, I was coming back from Powell to West Van once and when driving through the beautiful community of Sechelt, I came across a car show! Well, right up my alley, I found a place to park my truck and TT and spent hours there looking at all the old cars. And there were lots of them. I had my camera and took piles of pictures too. On the way to catch the last sailing from Langdale to the mainland, I severely blew a tire on the TT. Took me a while to fix that mess and I missed the last sailing. There is a nice little government CG near Roberts Creek, about halfway between Sechelt and Gibsons. I overnighted there and relaxed for a day before going home. That CG became a regular stop for me after that.

RE: Data plate

Have you looked on the sides of the unit, maybe near the front. Many I have seen have a plate or a sticker with the info. Also, on the inside of a cabinet door they sometimes put a build sticker sheet
