RE: Reset PW

OK, thanks for that. Problem is, the "Forgot your password" option on RV.com doesn't work. They don't ever send anything to your email.

Reset PW

Trying to reset my password so I can use something other than this lousy Goodsam portal. Going to the "RV.com" portal, I used the "Reset password" function but never get an email back. My email has not changed in 20 years.

RE: New bathroom sink replacement bead sealer

100% pure silicone is an excellent adhesive and is used extensively in aircraft assemblies and electronics to adhere and "rugadise" parts so they stay in place in high vibration applications - especially helicopters. I used silicone to bond the porcelain sink in our last TT and it held firm for 13 years till we sold it.

RE: Electrical Help pls

Reflectix is for heat infiltration and isn't intended for cold. Details are on its packaging. So maybe find a better insulation material to put in its place and it could make a big difference! Reflectix actually works for heat and cold. Preventing heat from going out still means the inside is warmer. Many of us have tried it. It works. It has minimal effect (again, read the manufacturers info: for temps over 70 degrees). Pretty much anything, even a blanket draped will work better.

RE: Electrical Help pls

Once the fuse blowing issue is solved, I expect you'll be dealing with battery capacity. Heating appliances will draw your battery down very quickly. Yes, I am bummed. I don't know how to heat ourselves at night. Below 40-degrees and it's downright uncomfortable. We have a Little Buddy heater, but not for sleeping. We have Reflectix around the vinyl (we have a pop-up TC), but that's not enough. Back to the drawing board. Reflectix is for heat infiltration and isn't intended for cold. Details are on its packaging. So maybe find a better insulation material to put in its place and it could make a big difference!

RE: Got the insurance money but I can't I do this myself?

I replaced some of mine myself - it was easy. Shipping was crazy expensive because it's over sized so I made the 5 hour drive to get that and a new bathtub (bad install caused cracking) from a dealer near the factory. The factory cut the 16' length in half so it would fit in my truck. All in all, I paid myself about $60/hour in savings.

RE: Residential refrigerator outside temperature below 40°

When it gets down to 40, or roughly the temp set point of the fridge area, the fridge wont run enough to keep stuff in the freezer section frozen. I don't think the fridge "shuts down" but it has no reason to run at those temperatures. The inside of the fridge temp is the controlling factor regardless of the outside temp. A residential refrigerator installed in an RV has three sides exposed to the inside temps, with only the back having some exposure to outside temps. Our fridge has worked fine with outside temps down to -4 deg.F and just the lower vents blocked off. LP/electric absorption fridges are much more effected by outside temps, both unusually high or low. The OP is talking about his fridge being in 40 degree temps - around all sides. At least that's the way it's written. My point is, if it's colder on the outside of the fridge than it is on the inside, it's not going to run because it doesn't have to! I believe the OP was asking about a standard residential compressor refrigerator. Not sure why RV absorption refrigerators have been introduced in the discussion. Either way, it's the same principle.

If nothing else, make sure he DOES NOT use a silicone product to seal it.

RE: BUCCANEER STATE PARK

Sure looks like it would be fun. Check it out on Google Earth. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Buccaneer+State+Park/@30.2641418,-89.4077563,1585m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0xdb99a6c3ac4eba69!8m2!3d30.2643535!4d-89.4056303 Copy and paste - sorry, can't make a direct link for some reason.

RE: 50A RV with 30A plug?

Sorry but that's not a 50A cable - see how small it is in the second pic? It's a 30A cable that someone put a female 50A plug on. You are not going to be able to change the male 30A side and make it 50A capable. If you want 50A, you'll need an entirely new cord assembly.

RE: Arctic Fox 25r interior wall removal

I've done a lot of invasive projects like this in RV's. Frankly, that wall is suspicious and could hide plenty. I would remove the thermostat and see what I can see. Maybe even remove the wood panel on the bedroom side if possible without doing damage. You would have to move the thermostat and you will lose the side of your cabinet. But again, first and foremost, I would verify what is inside the wall. It could be a chase for wiring like the 12v ceiling lights. And looking closer at the pic, it's plausible that all your tank level wiring, power for the stereo and 120VAC for the air conditioner is coming up through it. No way would I just start tearing it up without knowing what I was getting into!

RE: Not the cells that fail it is the battery Management System!

This is very helpful Don, thanks for posting. I have been trying to decide whether to buy bats with built in BMS' or buy 4 cells and an external BMS. I have only seen a couple of assembled batterys that can be easily opened and they are much more expensive and have no other attributes - you're just paying for the case. I think this makes the decision for me. Another benefit of stand alone BMS' is they tend to more often have better temperature protection and blue tooth. I can also over-size the BMS to head off trouble.

RE: Rand Mc Nally GPS

It means your device simply doesn't have enough memory left for further updates. This is why "Lifetime updates" doesn't really mean squat.

RE: Bike carrier

Your bumper will carry the weight if you reinforce where it attaches to the trailers frame. In this pic, the piece of angle iron that is cut off at an angle, spans underneath the existing frame to the underside if the bumper itself and keeps the bumper from being able to rotate and tear lose. I carried nearly 100# of bikes over 13 years with this setup and never had any problem after this mod. Before that I ripped this bumper off with just a couple of light bikes. https://i.imgur.com/OLxUBFh.jpg?1 Note, I'm not responsible for the factory booger weld on the right!

RE: Storage RV lot with GFIC breakers

Does the 50A or 30A have gfci??? Heck no! Actually the latest NEC update does require GFCI on those. So you will start seeing it in new campgrounds. Think of the fun CG owners are going to have with customers on that one!
