RE: Locked out of RV

You can also drill out the cylinder yourself and save time and money. Then you'll need to replace the lockset.

RE: Revising gas water heater to electric water heater

There's a cover on the water heater. Remove it. There is a temperature screw in there, behind the insulation. Adjust the temperature using that screw.

RE: Stink!

I pulled a drawer out and saw it but I couldn’t remember what they were called In the construction trade we call them "Studor vents". If that's not the problem, check up on the roof for a missing vent cap and a nest built in the vent pipe

RE: Sagging headliner

I used 3M spray adhesive on my truck headliner two+ years ago. Hasn't moved a bit since then.

RE: Synthetic Trans Fluid

Tiny particles can clog the valves. The filter cannot catch it all. While synthetic fluid can withstand higher temperatures, it cannot do anything different when it comes to these particles.

RE: Locked out of RV

The cam in the lockset gets worn out. They are made of pot-metal. If you can pry the jamb just enough (1/8") you might get it open and save yourself time and aggravation.

RE: Address

I was going to tell you to go online to the USPS. Then I thought "Maybe he means on this forum".

RE: Covid 19 impact on interstate travel?

Just drove through Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana. Nothing restrictive other than doing the right thing by wearing the mask when called for.

RE: People sure are getting petty with their park reviews

I like the Amazon product bad reviews because the shipper was late getting something across the country. They have nothing to do with the product themselves.

RE: How many miles a day can we go?

Just did a round trip to Northern Idaho. Each day I drove 700 miles the first day and almost 300 the second. Advisable? NO. My wife was not with me so I pushed the limits (64 years old) with my truck and 5th wheel combo. I slept in the rest areas with the truckers each night. Nope....Not even a semi could wake me in the wee hours of the night. I would suggest, like others, to limit yourself to 500 miles a day, less if you want to stay married a long time.

RE: New to RV’ing....and might not last

Take a trip in the RV. Wherever you go, there will be 20 people to help you figure out every inch of your new toy. Rv'ers are that way.

RE: Replace OEM tires with 2 years life left?

Put them on Craigslist while you can still sell them. That amount of money will be much better that the eleven cents interest you might get. That's exactly what I would do. Interest rates being about .25% and all. LOL.

RE: Replace OEM tires with 2 years life left?

You can collect a little interest on that cash if you wait.

RE: Update since buying my first TT

When you parked the trailer you probably had the trailer pushing towards the truck or holding the truck back. Chock the trailer wheels and then shift to neutral before applying the parking brake. A trickle charger is good to have for long term storage. Rather than having the trailer plugged in all the time and exposing it to any power issues, I use a Battery Tender brand charger about three days per month. A battery will have its longest life when kept fully charged. Ditto + Maybe add a solar panel.

RE: TT Suggestions Requested: ~6500lb GVWR

When you say "28 foot", you must mean with the tongue included? The walk-around bed is a must....just ask your wife. Who wants to climb over someone when they need to "go"? And the added floor space of the 24M will be a boon to your keeping the trailer longer. According to their specs, you'll be fine. Get a decent weight distribution hitch (Equalizer or OR used). You'll be at 6,000 lbs before you put dishes, towels, linens, clothing, chairs, ect. in her, but, you'll work it out.

RE: Tow weight

A 27RKS is a nice floor plan. But, you'll need an ulta-lite model.

RE: Cooper Tires

Cooper tires are good tires. They are made in the USA
