RE: Crashed trailer

Well, how about a flat bed trailer.

RE: Where to put generator in 21' travel trailer

Maybe some of you naysayers should go see your local high school physics teacher and have him explain what happens when you add weight, not at the pivot point which would be the trailer axle but more likely 7-8 feet behind the pivot point. If it's a 50lb genny, at the axle it would exert 50 lbs, at distance of 7 feet it would exert about 350 lbs, be it down due to gravity or add that amount to sway, something not desirable.

RE: 12 volt DC problem

On another note: It is unbelievable to me that they mounted the open electronic board with a gazillion wires and electronics that controls the slide, the tongue jack, the awning and the stabilizers directly under the bathroom sink trap, faucets and water pipes with only a thin 1/16" shelf panel above it and no other enclosure You would be surprised the junk they put together and shortcuts they take to save a few pennies.

RE: How difficult to install new brake drums

I'm surprised no one said to buy a new trailer because the ash tray was full.

RE: Do NOT use Flex Seal on your camper roof!

This is what I did when I wss bored last summer after I found an old tube of Dicor Well, at least it's insight how much to use and adding a little fudge factor for temperature.

RE: Do NOT use Flex Seal on your camper roof!

Well I'm on the other side of the equation. I used the Flex seal caulking tubes to seal up a couple of cracks in the roof in the spring. It stayed tacky for about 2 weeks and then became less and less tacky as time went by. Fast forward to fall, after checking a number of times, it didn't crack, peel become brittle or shrink and the trailer rood has full sun exposure for at least 6-7 hours a day.

RE: Electrical mystery--set out to fix 2 problems but fixed 3

What happens when you plug it into your house receptacle? I'm suggesting the generator is not grounded and will cause a fault to show on your tester, not the fault of your wiring.

RE: Looking for portable electric space heater for rv!

Make sure to check the outlet you plan on using. If it has stab connectors, replace the outlet. I can't stand those "RV" style electrical outlets. High chance of a fire if the RV assembly guy didn't seat the wires correctly. I went a step further and added a new outlet on a dedicated circuit which I show in detail in this video I did it again in my truck camper last month. The primary purpose of these new outlets is a dedicated circuit for a space heater Nice work. I'm surprised that UL and CSA actually approve those receptacles for 15A, just looking to light on fire.

RE: HAPPY NEW YEARS eBay Hoot link

Hmm your link goes to "fixing" batteries.

RE: Replacing ceiling in Lance shower?

Thanks. I’ll look into that FRP. I finally got the leak under control. Took lots of experimenting and I learned the following that may be of use for others: 1) caulking needs to be checked and replaced FREQUENTLY in hostile climates like southeast Texas. 2) spray on “Flex Seal” is ok for emergency repairs, but after just a couple of months becomes brittle, cracks, and peels off. It’s useless for long term! 3) using butyl tape AND lap sealant AND eternabond is the way to go! For the ceiling I’m currently eyeballing this: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Glasliner-4-ft-x-8-ft-White-090-FRP-Wall-Board-MFTF12IXA480009600/100389836?source=shoppingads&locale=en-US&mtc=Shopping-B-F_D30-G-D30-30_27_PANELING-Generic-NA-Feed-LIA-NA-NA-&cm_mmc=Shopping-B-F_D30-G-D30-30_27_PANELING-Generic-NA-Feed-LIA-NA-NA--71700000052659303-58700005045840622-92700044042640858&gclsrc=aw.ds&& gclid=EAIaIQobChMI2rDBwoT57QIVUPDACh1k9wkxEAQYBCABEgLsRvD_BwE Seems like it might be better for a shower where humidity and moisture are a constant potentl threat to simple luan. That fibreglass sheet will work quite well. I used it for an exterior window cover on the front of my old T/T a few years ago, held up for at 4 years before I sold the trailer. Just use a dust mask and gloves when cutting. I used masking tape on both sides of the sheet where the cut lines were to minimise any splintering and had a fine cut jig saw blade.

RE: A top to bottom look at green energy

subscribing just to monitor this nonsense. bumpy Got a spot on the sofa for me, how about I bring the popcorn, lol. Sun states seems to think the sun shines out of their (fill in the blank) alll day long and the wind blows hard at night (probably because they're full of that hot sunshine air). If everyone lined up all their electric gadgets and disposed of them, we would need less power to start off with. Now imagine everyone in (pick a sunny s/w state) and they all plugged in their EV's during a heat wave. Then they would all cry my A/C won't work. Ya just can't win it all.

RE: A top to bottom look at green energy

Oh ya, I watched a Praegar U video called "unobtainium" the other day. It outlined the percentage of maximum output of wind and solar, actually pretty pathetic and then all the energy expended in mining the required resources not to mention, like you said the infrastructure required. Lets shoot ourselves in the foot to kill the ant under our shoe.

Hot water will freeze before cold water. probably keeps boards under tires when setting on concrete. :h :B Bingo.

RE: Comcast to charge extra for exceeding 1.2 TB data

Well there's soooo many people out there who think they're important and have to have the phone going all the time, the pad and TV. You want to pay less, turn the **** thing off and leave it at home. 30 years ago the world didn't end when the phone wasn't answered and it won't now.

RE: Tire Deformation

Good you did catch it prior to deflation or explosion either way. I had one similar on my boat trailer, looked like a chicken mysteriously laid an egg under the middle of the tread. I just caught it by luck, I store the trailer with tires off the ground and give them a spin a couple times during the winter.

RE: Tire Deformation

Carcass and belt delamination for lack of better words. Most likely caused by driving through potholes or a rock you ran over. I pay attention to the road surface.

RE: Reminiscing Part 3, old cell phones

Time flies, my first was a Motorola bagphone, 3 watt output analogue. I swear you could bury yourself 10 feet down and still get a signal. Those were the only phones in the campground that were useful until about 2010 when they planted a couple more cell towers. Even then, you had to stand on the picnic table in a lotus pose and hope. Then I got a portable Wilson booster and solved that problem.

RE: Electric space heaters

Not to send the topic in a different direction but a lot of stick and brick houses have similar connectors, a 14 ga hole in the back of the receptacle. I had a couple go up in smoke.

Is your device physically attached to you? If not go get a a dinner tray, problem solved.
