RE: toilet treatment for black water tank

We keep ours in a, not very tight, pole barn, and never had a problem with odor. Dusty

RE: 4 year old Forest River vent covers already failed

MaxxAir/MaxxFan 1200T does a fine job of protecting the roof vent covers, problem is they are no longer made. Sure like one even a good used one. Dusty You mean like THIS? Yes, that is the one. But they, Al's RV don't have one. In 2015 we traded our mh in on a new mh and didn't know that the 1200T was no longer available or I would have removed the one that I had put on the old mh. Dusty

RE: toilet

Try a few drops of vegetable/cooking oil in it. Dusty

RE: digital thermostat

If it only controls the heater then you probably have only two wires to deal with. There is no high or low fan to worry about. Make sure the thermostat you buy can use batteries like two AA or something. Once you purchase your new thermostat pull the old one off the wall and count the wires. If there are only two wires this will work for you. Disconnect the two wires from the old T-StatDrill the mounting holes for the new T-StatOn your new T-Stat the RC and RH wires will probably have a small jumper wire connecting them togetherLeave jumper alone and add one of the wires from your RV, It doesn't matter which wire just pick oneHook the other wire from the RV to the W terminal on the new T-StatMount T-Stat on the wall, put batteries in and test it. It really is that simple. It will probably take you more time to drill the two holes and hang it on the wall than it takes to wire it up. This is because home thermostat's operate on 24 volt AC and RV ones are 12 volt DC or battery. Dusty

RE: 4 year old Forest River vent covers already failed

Looked up that Turbo model. Never heard of it before being new to trailers. What do you like about it? # 1 You have the vent open and rain cannot get in. # 2 It has a nice fan in it that is 3 speed and reservable. It also has a thermostat. # 3 You can have the vent lid open while driving with no harm to the lid. # 4 The fan motor and blades are at the far end, which make it quieter. Dusty

RE: Lance 2285 Water Heater Shutoff Valve

I have never put antifreeze in our mh water heater, I just drain the water out of it and leave it empty. Dusty

RE: 2020 Jayco GrayHawk 12 Cu.Ft. Double door Refer Gas Flash???

I don't know how the ignition works, but it sounds like something quite lined up right. You might open the outside cover and watch it ignite. Or have the dealer look at it.

RE: Yes boys and girls, you REALLY need to carry a spare...

Or carry a small air compressor.

RE: Source for EZ Ramp Levelers

I use 1x6, 2x6, & 4x6 boards. The 4x6's I cut about a 30* angle/ramp on one end.

RE: Serpentine Belt

Many years ago when my first Ford that had a serpentine belt was starting to get cracks in it, I asked the mechanic that I had gotten to know and trust, said that Ford had told them not to worry about those belts until they started loosing rubber. Dusty

RE: IOTA Circuit breaker Box

Most all breakers tell on the side of them what make and model they are. So just remove the breaker and look on the side of it. Dusty

RE: Inverter use.

NEVER do a suicide cord. You may figure that you will use it safely, but what if someone else tries to use it when you're not around, and plugs it into a hot receptacle first.

RE: house battery question

I've added Trik-L-Start to our mh and found that now our batteries go threw very little water.

RE: Limit switch trips on Atwood furnace

Look at the name plate on the new motor as to how many amps it draws, and compare it to the old motor. Dusty

RE: Range Hood vent mod?

One of our past mh's had a range hood that had a damper that the pressure from the exhaust fan opened it. Wind and/or driving caused it to flop opened and closed with a thumping sound. I added a manual slide to hold it closed when not in use. Dusty

RE: Pop goes the water heater!

I worked it the construction industry for over 30 years. The only place that I saw a Tankless Water Heater that I thought was in a good place, was at a loading dock, at a Department Store, that was a long ways from any rest-room or where hot water would be used. Dusty ankless

RE: battery charging

I've added that Trick-L-Start. And keep our mh plugged in when in storage. I've found after adding the Trick-L-Start that the batteries seldom need water add to them. Dusty

RE: Replacement forward Dome Vent Cover for my Minnie?

Speaking of vent covers, I'd like to find a MaxxAir 1200T one. They are no longer made. Wish I could find one that has been hiding, or a good used one. Dusty
