RE: SPAM from a new “member”.

I got that one too. What surprised me was there was no way to report a PM - at least one that I could find.

RE: LED Side Marker Lights

Be Sure To Drink Your Ovaltine. Great reference! (Took me a minute) :B

RE: Toilet seat cover ???

Get yourself one with soft-close option while you're at it. Luxury at its best!

RE: Toilet seat cover ???

There are two main sizes of toilet seats whether it be RV or otherwise. One is commonly referred to as round (yours probably) and the other is elongated. Measure the length of yours, go to HomeDepot and find one you like. I replace the junky plastic ones when my RV's are new.

RE: TT keeps popping shore breaker

Just turning off a breaker doesn't isolate the circuit enough to remove a faulty device from tripping a GFCI. You need to unplug, disconnect things like the fridge to check them.

RE: Changing Screen Mesh - No-See-Ums?

Yes, I bought a roll of No see um from Home Depot and re-screened all but one of my windows in my last two RV's (hate these long winters). I haven't noticed any difference in air flow although I'm sure there's some minor reduction.

RE: Dou Therm 57915.622 won't work.

A 23 y/o RV furnace is far from safe (I lost a BIL that way). If you're going to have him using it, make sure there's a new Carbon monoxide sensor present.

RE: Canadian Propane Tank Recertification in Washington

Take it to one of the Indian casino's that refill them like Silver Reef casino in Ferndale. They will fill anything no matter how old or nasty looking and they're cheap - I get all my propane there.

RE: Proper Accumulator Tank Pressure

Mr. E, please let us know how this works out for you. I have the same pump and have been considering adding an accumulator to smooth out flow but not sure how it will work with these bypass pumps. (Manufacturer just says "not needed"). The accumulator will work ok with a bypass pump. The manufacturer is correct that it's not needed for the low flow pump cycling that occurs with non-bypass pumps, but it still works well for cutting down on how often the pump runs. I have a 2-gallon accumulator installed with a SHURflo Revolution bypass pump, and we can often make it through the night with typical old folks bathroom visits without the pump running at all. Good info - thx! What did you set the tank pressure to?

Use the maintainer and Biocide.

RE: Black water tank health concerns and questions

You are no more at risk of these tanks than you are from the sewer plumbing under your house.

RE: Schwintech slide system

That slide system has been revised several times and the latest iteration works well. Mine is 4 y/o and has never had an issue. I would not hesitate to buy another.

RE: Power tongue jack head "partial rotation"

After you take the weight off the jack, find the set screw at the base of the head. Loosen it and rotate the head assy back into position.

RE: Side door latch/lock won't close without assist...

It's a $25 item - just replace it. Which item is $25? A new complete door latch from TriMark is ~$150+. Are you suggesting that just a part of this latch needs to be replaced? If so, I wasn't thinking that was an option but would be good. Please elaborate. Thanks I paid $26 for the entire assy just to get a unit key'd like my other door. Has worked perfectly for 4 years so far. In retrospect, it probably wasn't a TM but it looks and works exactly like the one I replaced. I would buy one again.

RE: Water heater temperature

FYI, 5 gallons would be a lot in our experience. We spent last week without any sewer connection so I had to get creative. The only thing that went in the grey tank was shower water and after my wife and I took showers, I drained the tank into a container every morning and found we only used about 5 gallons total. So ~2.5 gallons for a Navy shower (and we could probably do better).

RE: Slide out question

When your slide starts to move, do both sides move at the same time or does one end move a little before the other end starts moving? If it's the latter, you probably have a broken shear bolt. Look for a 1/4" bolt going through the shoulder of the gear. If you only see it on one side of the gear, it has sheared. You can get a replacement shear bolt anyplace they sell lawn maint. equip. parts (snow blowers, rototillers, thatchers, etc.) It's also possible the pinion gear itself is broken but that's much more rare.

RE: Replacement catalytic converter

A Prius CC costs about 8X that of an avg F150 (more precious metals) because they have to work efficiently at lower temps due to the vehicles start/stop capability.
