RE: Patching Coroplast

And the winner is........zip ties! They closed it up nicely and I didn't have to bother with cleaning off the old adhesive first! Thanks to everyone for all the suggestions. what did you use to seal up the crack so water doesnt get in? Steve It's too far from the tires for them to throw water up it, and any other incidental water that might splash up will not likely get thru the joint because the two edges are tight against each other. It would be necessary to seal it if water could accumulate on the surface, but it can't.

Patching Coroplast

Our 5th has coroplast covering the bottom of it. The factory cut a 8 - 10 inch slit in it to route a power cable thru it. The original tape job fell off after about a year, and now after 2 or 3 redos with Gorilla tape, I cannot get a tape patch to last longer than about 4 months. The coroplast is now coated with dirt/dust-imbedded adhesive residue which is probably why the tape doesn't stick very well. Not sure how I would get the coroplast cleaned up as it just pushes up when any pressure is applied to it - same problem when applying tape. Any ideas?

RE: Front Cap Cover

A good coat of wax twice a year has kept my front cap looking like new for 6 years so far.

RE: Brake controller craziness, advice?

Brake wires shorting inside your axle can cause this. The wires chafe over time and short out in the axle tube. It can cause an intermittent problem, due to bouncing wires inside. Jerry X2 had similar problem due to wire rubbing on brake drum. Rubbed thru insulation and caused intermittent max application of brakes.

RE: Recommendation for Folding Hard Tonneau Cover

I've had a Fold-A-Cover on my Silverado 2500 for 6 years. No complaints and it is "virtually dry" when raining. Folds out-of-the-way when towing my 5th, and the front section folds open to access items in front of the 5th-wheel hitch. Very well-made and durable.

RE: Office 2016 - Outlook??

As the brother of another old Whiltsie sailor, let me ask, what is the format of the contacts file you are trying to import?

You could make delivery by the dealer part of the deal.

RE: Propane Delivery to RV

Someone was finally able to get in touch with Aguirre and he made a pass thru the park last Wednesday. Don't know if he will come by regularly in the future.

RE: Propane Delivery to RV

Anybody know of a propane company that will deliver to Class A's in the Cathedral City/Palm Springs, CA area? Aguirre used to be the source, but they no longer deliver to the RV resort my friends are staying in. Wow. Aguiars used to deliver everywhere. Are you in outdoor resorts? My friend with the class A and I are at Palm Springs Oasis RV Resort in Cathedral City and Aguirre's has apparently gone out of business.

RE: Propane Delivery to RV

Best resource would be the CG Staff and IF they know of a propane delivery service CG staff hasn't been able to locate a source since Aguirre stopped delivering and stopped answering their phone.

RE: Fresh Water System Sanitizer

Video I looked at shows using the winterizing port. That does get to the tank. I believe you are mistaken about that. When winterizing, you should set the valves so that the antifreeze does not go into the fresh water tank. You do NOT want antifreeze in the fresh water tank. It would take forever to get out. The fresh water tank is "winterized" by simply draining it through the low point drain. You DO want to sanitize the tank and all the lines. So the sanitizing additives, what ever it is, should be put in through the port that fills the tank, and then pumped through the water system. I agree with everything except not putting anti-freeze in the fresh water tank. A previous trailer of mine did not have a winterizing port so I would pour the antifreeze into the fresh water tank and use the pump to distribute it throughtout the system. I never had a problem flushing it out in the spring when I sanitized the system. putting a couple of gallons of AF in the fresh water tank is a terrible waste of money and effort to clean it out. a little bit of water on the bottom of the tank isn't going to hurt anything. bumpy I didn't put the AF in the fresh water tank to keep it from freezing. I put it there because that was the only way I could distribute it throughout the pipes using the water pump. As I said before, that trailer did NOT have a winterizing port. And it took no extra effort to flush it out in the Spring other than what I would otherwise do to sanitize the fresh water tank and water pipes.

RE: Brake question

Have someone actuate your brakes while you listen and feel for the brakes to operate on both sides.

RE: Heating Cost: Electric vs. Propane

Last year we were in an RV park in Palm Springs from November thru March, and we paid for the electricity we used. I kept close track of our heating costs when using our heat pump and when using the propance furnace. The cost to heat by electric was virtually identical to the cost of heating with propane.

RE: Temp. go before freezing pipes on class a

Seriously? You have to worry about pipes freezing if you have the heat on and the temps drop into the mid-to-upper 20's? I'm sure I've read on this forum where people have camped in single digit temps successfully.

RE: Any one else giving up snow birding due to the covid

Going south as usual. We believe we can avoid COVID by wearing masks, social distancing, washing hands, etc. equally well regardless of where we are and what the local case load is. Another lockdown won't keep us from doing what we like to do (golfing, hiking, biking). The choice for us is cold and rain in the Pacific NW versus warm and sun in Palm Springs, CA. We are a bit concerned that a big surge could limit the availability of hospital beds should we need one for any reason; however, that could happen at home in the NW too. As far as support networks go, they are the same both places. 11 Days and we're on the road again!
