RE: Power "vampire" on coach batteries

Some radios draw power to keep the memory for favorite stations and other owner set features. Another draw could be forgetting to turn the antenna power button off. I include it in my packing up to return home checklist.

RE: over filling

Doesn't matter what type of fresh water tank fill system that you have for your trailer, water can still leak past the pump internal check valve, filling the tank. Not quite true. With our system, when all the valves are set for city water the pump is out of the system. Rob Do you actually have an extra valve that you shut off between the pump and the line from the city water inlet?

RE: Broken black water pipe

My 2007 trailer's black tank is made from black roto molded poly as are most modern made black tanks, since ABS is subject to cracking from impacts by rocks and road debris. ABS doesn't flex as easy as poly and cracks easier when the contents eventually freeze.

RE: Question about gray water...?

When I tent camp or used my pop up, I always dumped my dish pan in the bushes near by.

RE: Mount for Cell Phone, GPS, and more

Ram Mounts has way more options to choose from. I got their cell phone induction charger mount for my Samsung phone and mounted it in my Silverado. They have been around for a while. They originally made mounts for motorcycles and ATV's, but make all kinds of mounts and mounting platforms now including gps, tablet & lap top vehicle mounts and fish finders for bass boats.

RE: Broken black water pipe

A picture might be help to determine what to do in order to do the proper fix.

RE: Lithium cost keep dropping!

Will Prouse just gave SOK brand LiFePO marine grade a good review. Has BMS and half the price of BB 100 Amp and twice the capacity 206 Amp but only has 1/2 the discharge rate.

RE: What causes soft floors

There is what feels like a "soft spot" in the floor of my trailer. It is the only spot in the floor that flexes slightly as I step on it. It is an unsupported seam where 2 pieces of 3/4" plywood flooring come together. The seam crosses over the heat duct which runs down the center of the trailer. The duct is stapled directly to the underside of plywood flooring. It does make the center isle warm for the feet when getting up in the morning or getting up to go to the bathroom at the back of the trailer when winter camping.

RE: Newsom signs bill to ban the sell of gas powered generators

Over the past few years, I have been purchasing more battery powered hand tools as a convenience for not having cords to trip over and fight. I have also been purchasing outdoor tools that are battery-powered for doing work in the yard as a convenience. These outdoor tools include 2 lawn mowers (I had to upgrade), a chainsaw, a leaf blower and a weed trimmer with multiple attachments for it, some of which I already had for my gas powered weed trimmer. The outdoor tools have served me for what I have needed and as I said they are a convenience, because I don't have to mix oil and gasoline for some of those tools and have three different gas cans for three different oil mixes that are required for some of those gas powered tools that I own. As long as I keep the batteries charged they are ready to go when I need to use them and I always have the gas powered tools available if I need to use them. It it good to live in a part of the country where I don't have to worry about brownouts or rolling blackouts and can use any tool I want whether it be gasoline or battery-powered. However, I can't understand why a governor in the state with the largest population of citizens, would ban equipment that would have to force people to rely even more on a failing electrical grid, with brown outs and rolling blackouts. The same power grid that actually causes forest fires burning tens of thousands of acres (maybe even hundreds of thousands of acres) of land that the state and federal government want to protect.

RE: Furion Glass Refrigerator shelves slide when traveling

You could use some thin one sided foam backed tape under the shelf edges. Walmart has thin 8-1/2 x 11 foam sheets with a peal and stick adhesive backing in the arts and craft section next to sewing. The sheets come in colors. I cut a black piece up to use under various items on my desk to keep them from sliding around and scratching the surface. It is similar to the material on some stamped metal bookends. You could cut strips to put under the edges of the glass shelves.

RE: Home - Waste Dump

Where I used to live, there was a 3 inch clean out and 3 inch terra cotta pipe. Clean out was under the trailer 4 feet from the trailer connection. I connected straight to it with some 3 inch adapters and it worked fine.

RE: flex seal

I bought a can of clear Flex Seal to spray the outside surface of my skylight until I can replace it. It was cracking and leaking due to sun damage. Tape it off so you can spray the plastic only. Use self leveling Dicor around the edges.

RE: Are Butyl Tapes Equal?

I will be ordering/purchasing some metal roofing panels and trim pieces in the morning for a couple sheds along with screws & Butyl tape. When purchased from someone who sells commercial metal roofing for homes you can get butyl tape in widths of 3/8", 1/2", 3/4", 1" on 45 to 60 ft rolls. I don't know the price yet but I'm going to be purchasing 2 rolls in 3/8" width. The roofing i am buying is from Marco Metals purchased through the local 84 Lumber store. I think that Marco Metals is a distributor because the same exact roofing products are also provided from Best Buy Metals.

RE: Portable Wind Turbine as a power supplement?

I was thinking about building something like a ram air turbine using a high output alternator turned by a fan blade with everything mounted inside of a ducted shroud. I could either mount it on my truck rack or mount it on a bracket installed on the trailer tongue. Mounting it on the trailer tongue may create the least amount of drag since the front wall of the trailer creates a massive amount of drag anyway. It would be used to charge a battery bank while towing. This would however depend on how big the fan has to be and how many rpms it could produce at highway speeds.

Could be numbered in accordance with an agreed upon standard or they are all purchasing them from the same source and reselling them.

RE: Lounge Chair / Recliner for a relaxing nap

I have one of the 0 gravity chairs that I bought from Bass Pro a few years ago. I also have 4 hard armed Northwest territories bag chairs chairs I bought from K-mart before the one from Bass Pro that I bought for only $17 each. They too are great chairs but were discontinued by K-mart before they bankrupted. I bought the bag chairs because you can grip the arms when getting in an out of them to sit and push to stand up. I had 2 chairs before that similar to the ones with the attached table but they did not have a table. My dad kept falling over backwards in them. He could only sit in them if he a tree to his back. The bag chairs were very stable. He never fell over again. I also use one of the bag chairs at home when I sit outside and grill. The hard arm bag chairs are similar to this one, but have a taller back. Hard arm bag chair.
