RE: Sealing underside edge of counter top

RE: Sealing underside edge of counter top

We noticed some swelling bubbles toward the front right side of the sink on one of our summer trips last year. I was angry. We had MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) with the thin vinyl layer (with the sink removed): as well as the same garbage on the bath sink and small counter next to the bed. Here's the results of the winter project to "seal" those countertops: New corian & backsplash, new sink: Bath vanity: new corian & backsplash, new sink, new faucet: New dinette table: All 100% waterproof. I'm no longer angry about it! See more Sunseeker Project Pictures on my photo hosting site.

RE: You're right!

I've been at these forums since the days of usenet groups. Yep, that long. has been a mainstay for me, though I'm certainly not a consistent poster or responder. I really do appreciate good knowledge and wisdom. I despise those that can't keep their mouths shut (fingers at bay) when they should, but hey, I never (rarely) response to clickbait. Hang in there, good people! Go away, (bleep!)

RE: Theft from dealership

1968mooney, I'd be tickled pink if you saw any state's road sign and turned around & went home! Likewise, I'm pleased that you don't like Oregon, and it is my greatest hope the remainder of the country to the west and north of Florida is not to your liking. (Seriously, I stated my opinion, and apparently you took umbrage with it. It's just an opinion - let it go!)

RE: 2020 fortest river 2250 with chevy

pnichols writes: - You might want to buy it built on only the heavier duty Chevy chassis ... the 4500 chassis instead of the 3500 chassis. The 4500 chassis will have the big 57 gallon gas tank for a great long range between fillups when traveling ... plus plenty of fuel on board when camped for running the built-in generator to provide air conditioing during expected or unexpected hot weather. B> I don't believe I've seen any fairly recent Chevy MH that wasn't on a 4500. We have the 2016 2250 Sunseeker; it is on a 4500. - The heavier duty Chevy chassis will also provide superior brake service and life because the brakes will be larger. B> As above. - The heavier duty Chevy chassis will also allow you to travel with all tanks full if you wish with no over-weight concerns. B> As above. - Do all the cabinet doors have gravity locks so they'll never fly open on the open road? B> Snap-latches, yes. It requires a bit of a tug or a light yank to open the doors/drawers. - Do alll the cabinet doors slide on steel tracks? B> Yes. All are full length slides, meaning you have access to the backs of the drawers. - Is the water pump easy to get at? B> Not easy, but not difficult. With the slide in the out position, the front half of the mattress flips toward the bath - exposing the water tank and all the goodies behind/beside it. - Are the grey and black tank valves connected to their handles by cables or steel rods? Steel rods is best. B> Steel Rods. - Can you disconnect the RV batteries with an easy to reach switch by the coach door? B> On the wall to the left just off the floor. - Does it come with a spare tire? B> Ours didn't, but many of the newer models do. I looked at a 2018 at the RV show that had a bracket and a spare on the exterior back wall. With the length, there's not much room for a spare under the unit. Yet, in all the years we've been RVing and traveling, I've never had a flat. That said, I carry a tire repair kit & compressor, as well as a bottle jack and jackstand. - Is the battery box big enough for either two 6V golf cart batteries, or two 12V Group 31 batteries? B> The batteries are under the middle step. The height is a 1/2" too shallow for 6V batteries, as the bottom of the step would just contact the top of a 6V. However, while I have group 27s, I've seen reports of folks installing group 31s in their unit. - Is the roof one piece fiberglass and does it roll over the upper edge of the walls all along each side ... for long term protection against leaks? B> One piece fiberglass - yes, but their are seams at the top edges of the roof. As long as the Dicor is maintained, they will be fine. - Does it have at least two roof vents and does one of them contain a 3-speed reversible fan? B> Stock, it has 3 roof vents, one with the weenie fan in the bath. They are easy to replace, and all three are pre-wired for powered fans. I installed two, and kind of wished I'd have done all three. - Are the electrical hookup cables and sewage valve access areas in an enclosed cabinet? B> No, the sewage is hanging below, but is nicely tucked up under the unit. The gray valve is on the passenger side and black is next to the outlet on the drivers side. Electrical - the 30A cord is fed through a mouse hole into the storage compartment on the drivers side. I replaced mine with a 30A twist-lock Marinco unit, which seals the sidewall and makes it easy to deal with the power cord. I use a 15A connection 99% of the time, so I carry a couple 30A twistlock to 15A adapters. - Is the refrigerator 2-way propane/electric powered, or only an electric powered "residential type" refrigerator? B> Our unit has a nice 2 door Dometic Propane/120VAC unit. 12V is used for the control board. - How is the cabover area built such that it will - for all practical purposes - "never leak"? B> Ours has a full fiberglass nose cap. Again, no matter the style, seam maintenance and proper storage out of the elements will keep a unit in perfect shape for years. - Does the passenger cab seat swivel to face the rear? B> Ours did not, but I installed a swivel. Search my posts for the project and pictures. - Does the coach contain at lot of 120V receptacles and 12V receptacles? B> 120VAC, Lots!, 12V, one in the house and two in the dash, and a dual USB power in the bedroom. - Are the outside storage cabinets' walls and floors steel or fiberglass? B> Roto-moulded plastic. I added supports, as they needed a bit of help. Search for my posts for the project and pictures; those pics are in my photo album listed at the bottom of this post. - Are the cab mirrors powered and heated? B> No, standard Velvac. Easily replaceable with full spot style Velvac, and once they are set, no need to move 'em. (unless you have more than one driver - I'm the only driver, so I don't need to move them.) Heated? I've very rarely needed heated mirrors. - Does the coach have a manual or automatic step? B> No exterior step. The body is designed such that the first step into the entrance is at the same height as an external step. I've really appreciated not having to deal with a manual or electric step. I replaced the manual on our old Four Winds with an electric, and while it is convenient, it's yet another thing to maintain. Additional notes: The sidewalls are Azdel - no luan plywood between the fiberglass and the insulation. Block formed sidewalls/floor, and the ceiling is curved and has a lot of expanded polystyrene foam insulation. Likewise, the floor is of similar material, with 1/2" OSB below the floor covering. It has some special floor covering as well, though I don't recall the brand name. See more Project Pictures !

RE: Theft from dealership

Coupled with my own ugly experiences with CW and stories like this, I've avoided CW for the last several years. That and any KOA. Our saying when we see a sign for one whilst on the road: KOA -Stay Away!!!!

RE: Dometic refer - Door flange condensation heater

Perfect, SoundGuy! That's exactly the information I was looking for. Take care, and RV on!

RE: Dometic refer - Door flange condensation heater

DFord, don't jump to conclusions about my usage model - We'll be boondocking for a few days, and not yet having solar, I'm trying to make the most efficient use of the batteries while we are in the dry high desert. I'll make the decisions about when I want the heater to run, and when I want it turned off. DM2652RBX. The heater strip is wired in parallel to the light/switch on most of these models.

Dometic refer - Door flange condensation heater

I've been searching for the posting where the wires entering the lamp/switch box can be cut to disable the condensation heater. Mine doesn't have the factory switch, so I wanted to snip & cap off the wire to the heater strip. There's a larger and smaller wire on both the red and back wires. Logic would say to snip the heavy wire, but I think that's the power lead in. The heater strip probably is the smaller wires. Can someone (re)educate me on this - and/or post a link to the original post? Thanks in advance!
