RE: Electric bikes !!

I bought this folding CCM carrier for our regular bikes. I didn’t trust it for our e-bikes so I replaced all the folding parts with heavy wall tubing. It is rock solid now. Disclaimer: You may need to address Plate and lighting issues with this setup!

RE: Broken rear window

I’ll call around tomorrow. The nearest place to me has some other brand.

RE: Broken rear window

Dicor is just a brand name correct? Any non levelling silicone free exterior caulk should work just fine I’m guessing?

RE: Broken rear window

Also, what type of caulking would I use to reseal the ends of this moulding? Thanks in advance!

RE: Broken rear window

Great! Good luck with the re-install. It should go in easily. Let us know how it turns out. Thanks for your help on this Bob (and everyone else). I can’t believe how easy it went in. :B Obviously it was glued in there from age. I notice that there are a series of vertical distortions in this glass when viewed at an angle. Would this be a defect that could affect it’s structural integrity? I can live with the optics of it. Tint looks right on!

RE: Broken rear window

Well I get my window back tomorrow. I hope it goes back in relatively easy. I will use some windex for lube.

RE: Running Inverter Generator Safely From Pickup

The generator needs air! Both for cooling and for combustion. Number 3 would be bad, under the cover blowing hot exhaust gasses back into the enclosed space...not good. Blow the exhaust away from the truck and trailer. Rain should not hurt the generator.

RE: New Mattress

The wife and I just picked up a new Brody Euro Top 11” mattress with separate pocket coils in a short queen size. She picked it out, as I could almost sleep on plywood. We haven’t slept on it yet, but it felt comfy for the few minutes I laid on it at the store. I hadn’t removed the bedding when I erroneously measured it at 72” long, but it is in fact 75”. Here is a chart for anyone searching this in the future.

Blinds: corded vs cordless?

We are about to replace the factory pleated blinds in our 2010 Cougar 5th wheel. We have gotten 4 quotes and I thought I asked for the same cordless spring loaded old style roller blinds from everyone. We were about to order them from the lowest bidder (not that it was the most important factor) but then he said they were corded and they were cheaper than cordless. I had thought the opposite would be true, but now it makes sense. Has anyone had any bad experiences with either style? Thanks in advance.

RE: New Full Body Paint Job

Wow, that looks fantastic. Our 10 year old Cougar looks horrible due to the peeling decals. We have never found another one that we like as much, but I don’t think I want to invest that much into ours. Enjoy!

One of my favourite movies!

RE: Dangerous Pranks

On my first travel trailer the door lock didn't work so I just added a hasp door hatch clasp and used a pad lock. Went to a party at a buddies house and I didn't want to drive home after drinking so I took the TT. I though nothing of just leaving the pad lock hanging on the door. The next morning I woke up to find some friends had locked me in the TT !!! :B The door had a window in it and the screws for it were on the inside. Using my Swiss Army Knife I was able to remove the screws and take out the window. After that I reached out and unlocked the door. I never left the pad lock hanging on the door again. :B You should have snuck away and left it parked there for a few days to teach them a lesson.:B

RE: Broken rear window

Ok, glass cleaner it will be. I will have a better look today but this is what I imagine the molding/frame connection is like? I think the frame was cast into the molding. I did try removing it with the window in all positions from wide open to nearly closed.

RE: Broken rear window

My apologies folks. I have inadvertently created two accounts here and posted under two usernames. I have notified the moderators to delete one.

RE: Broken rear window

Yeah, I bet a nice heavy coat of silicone or tri-lube spray will help that slide back into place easier.

RE: Broken rear window

Good Luck!! :) Tempered glass is pretty tough. The thing that gets it is nicking an edge, so be careful not to hit a corner on something. It has a full frame around it, I just have to avoid twisting it like I did to get it out. That odd shaped extrusion is tucked up under the molding. As soon as I get a nicer day, I will go and clean up the shards and see if that molding comes out easily?

RE: Broken rear window

I got the frame out, but It sure didn’t want to come out easily! Being the top one it is somehow hooked into the rubber molding above it. The glass shop is charging me $85. to replace the glass. My fear is that I will break it trying to re-install it. I went to the Keystone dealer and they said it is a Kinro window, not Lippert. They didn’t have any service info on it, so I have e-mailed Kinro to see what they recommend. If I do break it, I will put plexi glass in the second time! Wish me luck.

RE: Broken rear window

It's actually quite simple. A piece of bronze 3 mil, cut to size, then tempered will work. The difference from 3 mil to .131 is very little. It will work fine. Does 3 mil refer to three millimeters? That would be 0.118” which is very close. The gasket should compensate, or maybe a touch of sealant. Anyways, the glass shop will do that part. I can’t find this style of window on Lippert’s website, not that it matters. I am heading back to the trailer today to tape up the shards nicely so they don’t get scattered anymore. Google is a wonderful thing!??

RE: Broken rear window

Just find a way to secure it from the weather for 3 weeks. No problem, I’ll just tape some heavy poly over it. Thanks.

RE: Broken rear window

Thanks Bob! I figured that price sounded really good. Even if it comes out to more, I’m Ok with it. And thank you very much for the info on removing the window. I was planning on googling it, but had no idea where to begin. Much appreciated!??
