RE: Flexible PEX hose.

When our rig was built, the plant was stocked with cross-linked vinyl tubing for flexible connections. Unfortunately, they seemed to be out of barbed fittings for the connections. They used typical PEX fittings, and clamps. Leaks randomly appeared throughout. The first few I changed replaced the crimp rings with gear clamps. This solved the problem, short term, but I eventually changed out every brass fitting that had vinyl connected to it.

RE: What is the coldest temp you've started your Honda 2000 in?

Shouldn't be a problem. My work Honda was used all winter, often at -35 or colder. I ran 0-W20 synthetic oil for the cold, stepping back up to 5-W30 come spring.

RE: Nice find TV

As an indicator of the lengths the dealer is going to, to move this Ford, he's in California and advertising in Phoenix. It'll be there awhile, if he's stuck on the price.

Why is it always a Canadian? Almost makes me want to move.

RE: Ram box on short bed - ill-advised for towing a 5th wheel?

Watch the length of the hitch on the trailer. Too long, it'll want to run into the inside of the truck bed in a turn.

RE: Converter Nichrome Wire Break

The NiChrome didn't get hot and melt from a resistance issue, it melted from a current issue. Have the battery terminals ever been removed while the RV was plugged in? Quick short to ground would do it.

RE: Full time in the 2020 JAYCO EAGLE??

There's nothing wrong with the size of the Jayco model you're looking at, but the cargo capacity is wanting for full time use.

RE: How to winterize residential refrigerator??

Use air to blow out the lines. There's probably a drain valve at the edge of the slide, to speed up clearing the fridge lines. Set the ice maker to build cubes last, use the glass filler for the bulk of the clearing.

RE: Carriage Cameo 2006 Window

Damaged frame? Broken glass? Either way, find a glass shop instead of an RV repair shop. Brand is probably a Herh.

RE: Honda eu2000i separate on/off switch

I run ours dry by turning off the fuel cap vent. Worked good so far.

RE: Blizzard hits plains states and PNW

Are you goofballs actually arguing about the weather forecasting 131 years ago? They were there for it. ROFLMAO............... Not the forecasting, but why the Pony Express operated by Paul Revere was not able to warn everyone. Why do you think Grover Cleveland was able to beat out Benjamin Harrison in 1892 and get his old job back? Yes Sir, Oct 10 1888, The temperature dropped from 40 to -30 in a matter of minutes. Those poor school children froze to death in their tracks. They did not even find them until Spring. Especially hard hit were the ones who had to trek uphill to school both ways, with no shoes. That's what barb wire was originally invented for. Traction in the winter. It was a savy cowhand that seen the possibilities of animal control during the low sales months.

RE: Boycott “No Campfires”

So, Fire bans? Too much hand wringing and fake drama on here, lately.

RE: Experiences with Products/Services of

Short of a heat exchanger failure, nothing on an Aqua-Hot is really significant. Might be a pain to get your hands in where hands shouldn't be put, but that's what you're paying the tech for.

RE: Campground washroom needs GFCI

As noted, could very well be slaved from another GFCI. But if so it should have a GFCI Protected sticker on it. Could just as easily been installed before GFCI was required and grandfathered in. In that case the owner probably in no hurry to upgrade.That is how ours are wired and they don't have stickers. Someone making a fuss about GFCIs in the bathrooms, or even worse testing them, is someone I would actively look to get out of the park as soon as possible. Definitely wouldn't extend their stay, would note in the records to not take them again, and if the made too much of a scene I would refund their money and send them on down the road immediately. To me, that is a person who is looking for a problem and won't be happy until they find one. If the GFCI is fine, they will keep looking. I am more than fine in having them pursue happiness elsewhere. Yup, heartily agree.

RE: Onboard genset

Added a 5500 w genset to a 5th wheel, using boat tanks. Worked well, used extra gas cans to keep the 2 boat tanks full. Use a 2k Honda or Yamaha when travelling more than the big genset.

RE: Tire cables or chains

If you need to put chains on an RV, you've made some bad life choices. They're hard on tires, bodywork and the body of the guy putting them on. That said, the laws of the land do require them to travel, so get the cheapest, lightest ones you can find, to meet the minimum standards of the law.

RE: Towing a VW Rabbit

Time to either find a fab shop, or swap the front end for the North American style.

RE: Check valve location

It always matters. Check valves in industrial installs are usually placed downstream of the pump, because of restrictions to flow through them is less noticeable to the discharge.
