RE: What do you shut off when leaving for a trip

For years we did nothing ....until..... A lightning strike that tripped our garage breaker for 11 days. In our garage we had a freezer and a refrigerator. It also took out all our house phones, several tvs, amplifier on tower antenna and rotor. Now we have neighbor that checks on house and picks up our mail. Oh man, the garage smelled like there was a dead body, it was AWFUL. I have weak stomach so DH had to dig hole in back of property after we froze all the rotten stuff and bury it. Lesson learned....get to know a trustworthy neighbor. We do turn off hot water heater and AC.

RE: Dicor lap Sealant

Do not use self-leveling sealants on anything but horizontal surfaces. All all dicor the same as in if we buy some at walmart or an rv store?

RE: Dicor lap Sealant

Can you use Eternabond instead of or with the Dicor? We figured with all the sealant up there and it appears to be self leveling that is what we would put back. It looks like there is an aluminum lip that is screwed down on the edge of the roof and then the old sealant.

Dicor lap Sealant

This is not for either campers but our enclosed trailer. We washed it up today and the sealant around the top is coming off pretty bad. Our enclosed trailer has an aluminum one piece roof. I figure if we use our pressure washer then it will take most of the old sealant off. It's a 14' trailer so I am thinking maybe 2 tubes. What do yall think? Any other steps we might need to take. thanks in advance...

RE: Been away for a while

I am 65, the wife and DH is 76 and there has certainly been a slow down. However, the last few campers that we have purchased I made sure that I would be comfortable driving our truck, towing, setting up and tearing down. Presently we own a truck camper, which I LOVE, him not so much and a 21 foot travel trailer. A few years ago we had a 32 foot 5th wheel and sure am glad that thing is gone! Get something you are comfortable with or can get comfortable with. Life is short enough.

RE: Another Mile, Another Day

We follow the rule of 3,s. 300 miles or 3:00 pm whichever comes first. 3 cocktails, 1 for her and 2 for me. Great idea! Gotta remember that on next trip.

RE: Printing?

A friend's computer would not print using edge browser. He finally switched to Chrome and it prints fine now.

Can't go wrong with Salt Springs. Make your reservations early though.

RE: Yet another reason to love trailering

Totally agree with having my own nest. I think with the exception of a cruise a year and a half ago, which I altered my sleeping habits, it has been years since I slept in a bed that we didn't own. Hopefully going to keep it that way for a long time.

RE: Torklift Talons

Yip, we got 'em too. They are so easy to handle and they look nice!

RE: Router speeds OUT of our router

Yes, would love to get that speed too! However, our internet and cellphones been so screwed up here lately. We are thinking due to all the distant learning and things going on. Personally I think they are powering down towers and slowing internet speeds to keep up with the demand.

RE: Norcold Refrigerator not cooling

old-biscuit, not to hijack OP but guess I am, how in the world do you know all this rv "stuff"?

RE: Floor issue in 2018 Talon

My neighbor has some issues with his fifth wheel slide tearing up his floor. He ended up calling the factory and talking to a GM. Dealer tried fixing it once and still wasn't right and he kept calling factory to talk to GM, squeaky wheel gets the oil. The GM finally agreed to send someone to Florida from Indiana to pick it up and take it back to factory in Indiana. They just got it back last week and all looks good. He was polite but adamant his RV wasn't right and they finally stepped up to the plate. Good Luck!

RE: Bathroom roof vent knob too short. Can't reach?

When we had our fifth wheel DH make a handle out of wood. It worked quite well and used it for about 7 years.

RE: Private Seller - Financing

I would check out a credit union. We are not much on the big banks if we needed to fiance something. IMHO they pay their executives way too much money.
