RE: Oven Going Out / Thermocouple

Thermocouples either work, or they don't. The nut holding it to the gas valve may be loose, causing intermittent loss of connection. Use a wrench to just snug it up.

Been getting parts from US all year long.

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

Pfizer may not have taken US money, but there was government money involved.

RE: Maritmes phone coverage

Unfortunately I don't have a US provider, such as AT&T. For the months that we are in the US we use Straight Talk & TracPhone. Straight Talk offers a plan for calls from the US TO Canada but nothing for use IN Canada, hence the question about a pay as you go provider IN Canada. More research needed. Phone options these days is bewildering. One option definitely out is my roaming with my Bermuda phone. Might as well get a satellite phone for their charges. Get on Craigslist, or any shopping centre phone reseller, and get an unlocked phone. Your StraightTalk phone will NOT connect to any cell towers outside of US providers, and can't be changed.

RE: Maritmes phone coverage

AT&T partners with Telus for roaming, so their coverage map will give you an indication of service. Other US providers have different partners to roam with. Be aware that data is crazy expensive up here, especially on roaming packages.

RE: Best screws to attach WH to foam board?

Foam screws. In all seriousness, in a situation like that, I'd be adding a backer strip of wood to the inside and use longer screws. The original screws were intended to catch the fiberglass exterior surface, but it sounds like that's too far gone.

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

I have had to delete way to many posts on this thread. PLEASE No Politics No Conspiracy Theories No personal attacks Topic is: Any one else giving up snow birding due to the covid Yes. We broke down and bought a townhouse to winter in. The uncertainty with the border opening, along with the crush along the west coast, curtailed our full timing at the 6 year mark. I'm just now getting used to flushing a toilet without a foot pedal.

RE: Tire Chains

If you've never used chains before, on the side of the highway isn't the place to learn their quirks and foibles. Especially on an RV. While technically, that may be true, ;)Murphy's Manual of Tire Chains (with examples and scenarios, 1965 ed.) :) says in Chapter 1 that one has not had the true tire chain experience until they've had to put chains on on the side of a road, in a snow-rain mix, late at night. Extra credit is given if the user has left his or her coveralls at home. A one time 5 point bonus is given if the user's work gloves are left on the dresser at home as well. A one-letter grade promotion is given for each of the following which occur: i) the chain tensioners are left in the garage; ii) the chains in the RV are meant for the car; iii) the incident happens in below zero weather; and iv) the incident occurs as one is already running late to get somewhere. Without undue puffery, suffice to say that I've long since graduated, with all honors and bonus points, from Mr.Murphy's advanced course in Tire Chains, (minor in focus on Alaska). :B ^^All the above is triggered due to last night's hour spent organizing tire chains for the ATV, pickup, and Plow Truck. I, too have encountered Mr. Murphy. Tractors, trucks, even snowblower has had chains. If I need to reach for my galoshes and Nor'easter to go RV'ing, I've made some poor decisions.

RE: 1157 Style LED Interior Bulb Warm Lighting?

Anybody ever seen a dual contact interior light socket? I've seen 1157 bulbs wedged into a 1141 socket for more light. The first indication is a melted lens, followed by a melted fixture. Not good. Years ago we had a small Class C that had a couple of interior lights that used dual filament 1157's in fixtures with "High/Low" switch settings. I don't know if the fixtures were OEM or not. Hey, Dutch, those were very likely OEM. The fixture I seen had the slots for the bulb pins directly across from each other, like on a 1156 or 41 style bulb. The previous owner had filed down one of the pins on an 1157 to allow it to fit. The original centre contact hit both contacts of the 1157, so it was bright, but hot.

RE: 1157 Style LED Interior Bulb Warm Lighting?

1141 LED is a common interior lamp Won't work in an 1157 socket. Exactly! The numbers describe the physical and electrical aspects of the lamp. You don't put gasoline in a diesel or shampoo in the dishwasher! Anybody ever seen a dual contact interior light socket? I've seen 1157 bulbs wedged into a 1141 socket for more light. The first indication is a melted lens, followed by a melted fixture. Not good.

RE: What truck do I need to pull this trailer

Nothing wrong with GM's 8.1, Ford's V-10, or Dodge V-10 gassers. DRW chassis, 4 door models are harder to find with Dodge, but the other 2 are common as dirt. Save with the purchase price, fuel price is a wash.

RE: CSA

The border isn't truly closed, only the land crossings. Want to go south, get on a plane. Get the facts.

It'll work for a minute, maybe.

RE: Air brake push rod inspection on motorhome

Before you go in for the test, I'd suggest searching YouTube for Air Brake Pre-Trip Inspection. If you're lucky, the tester won't ask for one, but if they do, you better know how to do one. At the same time, your pushrod questions will be answered. You'll also be a safer driver.

RE: What's This Do?

Keeps leaves out of the bed and diverts water? Gets my vote. Seen rubber flaps there, too.

RE: Drop in voltage with increase in heat

Loose wire connection onboard your RV. Time to do some tightening.

RE: Glue for slide seals

Contact cement. Not sure if it'll work with other adhesive residue on there.
