RE: Broken cargo door key

I'm pretty tall, slightly handsome Happy Thanksgiving. Tall, yes :) Happy Thanksgiving, Jerry Jerry, you need a new washing machine. The one you have is making your T-shirts bulge out in the front! :B:B It's even worse now during the pandemic. Me too. I have been diagnosed with "Furniture Disease" My chest has slipped into my drawers!

I now see the error of my way in failing to read the quoted post properly. Perhaps I should pay more attention! Indeed Jerry, not you with the faulty washing machine!:o

RE: Has anyone seen this Monolith?

Didn't some billionaire hide something worth a lot of money out there somewhere? Mabey they found it and don't realize it. Yes, I think you are right. That thing is actually solid platinum. It weighs 486 pounds 12 ounces. So based on the above figures at todays market value of $939.29 an ounce, that thing is worth a cool $7,315,190.52. Nice find! 486 pounds and 12 onces of solid platinum!!!??? For lack of a better reaction - that's not possible ... with platinum worth over $950 per ounce. I suspect hardwood painted with silver paint as more likely what it's made of! ;) P.S. Could a 1-ton dually 4X4 PU even carry 486 pounds and 12 onces - plus the crane - plus the backhoe - out there (unnoticed) so as to deal with setting that thing up vertically stable? I think not - but maybe another cup of coffee will help me think more clearly. Have another coffee, that whole thing was a joke I made up on the fly!! HAHA! :B:B:B

RE: Broken cargo door key

Even though the key is broken off inside, which negates putting another key in or picking the lock, is there any chance you could insert the broken end of the key until it touches the end of the broken key, then ever so gently try to turn it while tapping and pushing in and out on the cargo door? The idea is to relieve the pressure on the lock tab inside. I know on mine that the fit isn't the best, and the locking tab inside is tight against the frame. Putting pressure on the door could relieve it enough to turn. Another thought, by any slim chance is there access from inside? My last TT had a lift up panel under the bed to access the storage. I could reach the storage bay door from the inside. If so, you could remove the nut on the back of the lock cylinder, and let the tab fall off. Do both sides of the compartment lock? A lot have a thumbs latch on one side and a lock on the other. Your pic is too dark to tell. If you can open one side, pull the door open enough to get your arm in there, maybe you could work the nut off the latch tab on the inside. Or maybe get something in there to try to jockey it open. There is some flex in the doors, they will bend a little without damage. Is it a pass through compartment with a door on the other end? If so open the other door, pull stuff out and crawl in to take the thing apart from the inside. Or a drill and bits. Drill out the cylinder until it comes apart. New ones are cheap enough. Should be able to do that without damaging anything.

RE: I Hope This Doesn't Get Taken Down Right Away

Looks like it didn't get taken down right away. Don't think it will. It's in ATC now. And it is a remembrance of a life changing event in history that many of us remember. I did notice one thing about all the replies: I am the only Canadian that posted a reply. Surely I'm not the only Canadian Air Force brat that is here...

RE: I Hope This Doesn't Get Taken Down Right Away

I was living in France, going to a DND school. 9 years old. My Father was a Flight Lieutenant in the RCAF. Walked home for lunch, found my mother bawling her eyes out. I remember it like yesterday, always will. Tough day for everyone.

RE: Electrical Short Under Sink on 2019 1062 Lance

Brad, looking at the pics, I see the sink is recessed under the countertop, but is there room to remove the sink, allowing room to perhaps lean in from the top. Still awkward, but may offer more room. I have taken apart a lot of cabinets in various RV's, some can be partially dismantled by removing screws on the inside. Possibly might be able to take the front of the cabinets out by accessing assembly screws. Use a mirror to find out how it's held together. It's hit and miss and depends how they built it. Another option, although a bit of work would be to remove the countertop for access from above. Chances are it is totally held in place with screws. May need to become a contortionist to to get in there to get at the screws. I have used mirrors to get into tight spots to see whats there. Is that your HWT behind and to the left of the damaged wires? If so, maybe you could pull it out for access from the outside. But I agree this is a factory problem and the manufacturer should go good for the repair. You're lucky you didn't have a fire...

RE: The price of new trucks is beyond comprehension!

Back to OP's original title: Back in November 1984 I ordered a brand new 1985 Dodge D-150 with stereo, A/C, 318V8, and 4sp od. Price...$10,000. I thought WHAT!!!! $10,000 for a pickup truck!!!! OMG!!!! Just to keep it in perspective. Like my 78 I paid 8G for... Don't we all wish we could pay that now for a new truck!

RE: The price of new trucks is beyond comprehension!

Hello, Interesting thread. I have taught Dave Ramsey FPU for ten years. He has good advice on personal finances. Now, do you remember what he called a lease? Dave Ramsey does not like a lease, for good reason. Dave Ramsey refers to a lease as a "Fleece" I remember chuckling on numerous occasions as I listened to his talks.

RE: Filling small holes in Filon/Fiberglass exterior walls

Clear silicone sealant is your friend. And it will match perfectly the surrounding color. Never use silicone. When in needs maintenance in the future, nothing will stick. Agreed! And the silicone won't stick either. It will cause a leak around itself. A good polymer based sealant is the best choice. It will even adhere to wet surfaces. I use Weathermaster Titebond in my solarium business. Best I have ever found for the application. There are others, widely used here by members, but no to silicone.

RE: Filling small holes in Filon/Fiberglass exterior walls

The doorknob who had our TT before us hung a decoration on a wall with drywall screws that were longer than the wall was thick.... Screws were sticking out the wall on the outside. When I pulled them out I just used some polymer based caulking a similar color and filled the holes, then smoothed it off on the outside and cleaned up any excess. The thing to do is put the caulking tube nozzle right tight to the wall surface, then pump pressure on the gun for a second, then release the pressure before pulling the caulking gun away. This will force caulking right into the hole a ways so it isn't just on the surface.

RE: The price of new trucks is beyond comprehension!

Hello, Interesting thread. I have taught Dave Ramsey FPU for ten years. He has good advice on personal finances. Interesting you mention teaching Dave Ramsey FPU. I used to listen with great fascination to his spot on Siruis years ago. Channel 151? I forget now. I learned a lot, even though I didnt always agree with some concepts, he had the credentials, so I knew he was right and I was wrong. Wonderful teacher! And he was very much against leasing a vehicle. Now, do you remember what he called a lease?

RE: Windshield wipers travel

Also check inside and make sure the nuts holding the motor in place are tight, mine were loose and caused the wiper blade to not cover the area I wanted. Good point. I had that happen years ago on my 78 Chev pickup. Wiper coverage was wonky, so I got in there and the bolts holding the motor on were loose, causing it to move around and interfere with the wiper blade travel.
