RE: Odd Smell/Odor

We had a foul but not strong smell coming from the mattress in our Jayco (Australian Jayco) that was there from new and we put it down to formaldehide that was somehow used in the construction of the mattress. Once we replaced it the problem was solved, no more smell. BTW... The matress was made in China would you believe. Jayco wouldn't budge and replace it so we had to pay but it was worth it!

RE: Shark Bite on older pex

If replacing the fittings good practice would be to trim the end of the Pex to create an unblemished end for the new connection.

RE: 14 Reasons You Will Regret an RV in Retirement

I didn't see anything wrong with the article... RVing is one of those things you either take to or don't. Prospective RVers need to go in with open eyes and as many suggest rent first or buy an entry level rig to start with that way the risk is less. Also being a very handy person can save you a lot of time, money and frustration... as most of you know.

RE: Pushing a TT into position from the rear bumper...?

A friend lf mine had to pull his TT up an incline to store it (no access to get the tow vehicle back out) so he used a manual block and tackle anchored to a wall to haul it into position, perhaps you could do something similar?

RE: Fry's Electronics shutting down 30 stores in 9 states

I visited Fry's LA store when I was in the USA in 2002... it was kinda like the holy grail. Same thing in this country for computer swap meets where all of us enthusiasts used to regularly jostle around buying parts and software. The swap meets are pretty much done these days. In a way its a sad sign of the times. Downunda - Melbourne Australia

RE: Genset carb upkeep:  drain it and/or exercise it? Both?

You can buy a kit from Hutch Mountain that allows your Honda to use all of the fuel in the carby before shutting down. Using this option after a trip when you don't plan to use the genny for a while saves you draining the carburetta manually. I fitted one as I didn't want fuel residues gumming the carby up.

RE: Cant get parts shipped from USA to Canada

Join MYUS or one of the other companies that accept deliveries in the USA for you then on-ship to other countries. I've used them a few times from Australia and its not very expensive. Good luck.
