RE: Water Heater Question

Yes that is normal if you do not open a hot water valve or trip the pressure release valve on the water heater first. I have received the shot in the belly once from forgetting the above. Notice I said once!:E You should be good to go now.:) Barney

RE: Liquid rubber

Yes, they do it both ways and price accordingly. Click on the "learn more" link of the website and they explain the tear off. I wanted a tear off to find out what shape my roof was in because I intend to leave it for my sons use in his campground when we are done with it. I don't want to leave him a pile of garbage. Next summer I will have it professionally detailed outside and, with that done, the trailer will be essentially a new trailer inside and out. We have already replaced the fridge, and air conditioner and many other minor items. Barney

RE: Liquid rubber

Bringing this up again as my roof was torn off and replaced last weekend in three days by a very conscientious and well trained technician from RV Armor. They came to my trailer location out in the woods and did it right there on site. I am completely thrilled with the work done and how the roof looks now. No more worry about leaks. As you can see by the pictures below, my roof looked terrible but was not leaking a bit as evidenced by the condition of the wood after the rubber was torn off. I was a bit worried but knew I had been quite proactive in taking care of it for the past 17 years. I would have no worries about recommending this company if you are looking to repair your roof or are interested in getting the longest life possible out of your rig. Barney Roof before Rubber roof removed. Roof right after application Roof completed. We left the luggage rack off because it had never been used and never would be.

RE: who's towing with gas and 342 vs 373

I have had two diesel trucks. I didn't find either one to be complicated or temperamental. One was a 2002 F250 with the 7.3 PSD and the other, and my favorite, is the 2016 Ram Cummins TD pictured in my signature. Both trucks ran flawlessly for thousands of trouble free miles and gave excellent towing performance. The cost of an oil change was higher ($55-$90) because of the amount of oil in the crankcase (16 quarts if I recall correctly). Other then that, the diesels didn't cost anymore to maintain than my previous gas engines. Of course they do cost more up front though but that is a slight disadvantage, in my opinion, compared to the improved towing performance that they give. Barney

RE: manual retraction of slides

The electric motors all work at the moment. I am jsut trying to be prepared in the event that they dont... The underbelly is totally cover in coreplast .Have not found a hole where a crank would go . The motor is visible right behind the slide out. All Sunnybrooks had their underbellies covered but if you look behind the slideout, you will see the motor and the shaft that connects the two sides together. The part you turn is on the bottom of the motor. You should also have a small crank to turn the motor with. It is black and is about 12-14 inches long and has a square opening in the end to fit the motor shaft. My trailer also does not have a hole for a crank. You have to slide under the trailer to get to the motor shaft. Barney

RE: manual retraction of slides

On my trailer, the slide motor is on the bottom rear side of the slide out and can be operated either with the small crank that came with it or a electric drill/socket. It is attached to a long round bar that operates the opposite side gear along with the gear on the rear side. You have to slide yourself under the trailer to access it. Although our trailers are different types, I think Sunnybrook was fairly consistent in the use and placement of most things between models and years. Barney

RE: owners manual - 2005 King of The Road

I agree with the comments that almost any RV manual is just a collection of the manuals that the appliance manufacturers put out and any other information is just about useless. We have a longtime member, Chris Bryant, now retired from his RV service business, who has generously provided a link to many manuals, both RV's themselves and appliances used in RV's, on his company website. You can check out the various categories on his site here. Barney

RE: Suggestions for a Weight Distribution Hitch

Take a look at the Blue Ox Sway Pro, no noise, and you can backup with it. I've had one for 6 years, and would buy it again. Snip... I back up with my Anderson all the time. just loosen the sway bar and don't jackknife. Snip.... The Andersen hitch does not have a "sway bar" to loosen. The sway control comes from the material that the ball cone sits in on the hitch head. If you DO have an Andersen then your statement makes no sense at all to me.

RE: Need help - Weight distribution hitch installation pics

Folks, this is to explain the "edited" posts above. It is not necessary or desirable to use the "quote" feature when replying to the person immediately above you. Just type your reply as if you were talking to the person. I don't know anybody who repeats the persons sentence when speaking to them and it is not necessary here. Barney

RE: Macerator pump questions

I think the reason you are seeing stuff still come out after more than one dump is because "stuff" gets into the corners when you just sit in one spot and are not moving around thus mixing the contents. The tank rinser does not reach them well enough - especially the corners on the same side of the tank as the rinse nozzle. I found that while snowbirding in Florida for 18 years and staying in one spot for 3-4 months, I had to use the wand down the toilet hole about once a month to blast the stuff out after normally using the tank rinser every dump. It would take quite a while before the water ran clear too because the stuff packs quite tightly into the corners! Here is the one that I use. It does a good job and shoots a powerful blast of water. I would use it down the toilet while emptying with the macerator. Barney

RE: Need help - Weight distribution hitch installation pics

Here is the sticky on setting up a WD hitch. The one linked in post above is for how a WD hitch works but does not say much, if anything, about how to set it up. Barney

RE: Sending a TT back to the factory

There have been many posts here about folks taking their trailer back to the factory for repairs - usually because the dealer had exhausted all his resources and could not fix the problem or possibly because the problem was above the dealers capability. Sometimes it is because the owner is dissatisfied with the dealers service. Many different reasons but the bottom line is that most brands have a way to take a customers unit and fix it. They often will fix other items that the owner didn't even know were broken! In addition, some factories will pick up the unit and transfer it back to the factory and maybe deliver it back to the owner. I would imagine that would depend on the amount and reason for the work. Good luck.:) Barney

RE: Liquid rubber

Has anyone tried liquid rubber L R Yes! I did several years ago and posted about it here, with pictures. Make sure you read the whole thread because I can no longer recommend the stuff that I used in that thread. You will see in later posts why. In two weeks, I am having the whole rubber roof replaced at a cost of over $6500 which probably would not have happened had I not used the product that I did. I wish I had just used a simple paint like product as has been mentioned earlier in this thread. Barney
