RE: Keeping mice out what do you do?

I keep a “ Wheel of death “ at home near my rig. Simple Home Depot type of bucket of water with a rod through it at the top and through a pop can with some peanut butter on it. It just spins and the mice drown in the water. You tube it to see it work. I tried that in the barn and never caught a mouse I trap lots of them in the barn with the good old victor type traps.

RE: Keeping mice out what do you do?

Find an outside cat, make a nice cozy box for it to sleep in in the shed. Give it some food and water and access to outside. You won't have a mouse problem anymore. The coyotes have eaten 3 cats.

Keeping mice out what do you do?

I live in a rural area with lots of mice they are impossible to irradiate. I have had major damage to my last RV a 5th wheel where they got into everything and I ended up replacing all the heater duct what a job. We have killed 2 so far in the motor home what do you do to keep them out? I have areas that can't be completely sealed under the bed there is an area that has a lot of wiring it seems to be open on top and very hard to get to, I think that maybe where they can get in. I keep the MH under a free standing metal RV carport that is adjacent to 80 acres of forest with an endless supply of vermin. So far we just have some traps set but I am wondering about the plug in sonic deterrents?

RE: Fleetwood ratings

I have a Fleetwood Expedition and so far I like it a lot. I have had some small issues that I have fixed but it is a 2005 so it is going to have some issues no matter what brand. The wood work is not high end but better than the TT's I have owned. It has a Freightliner chassis with a Cat C7 and Allison 3000. The slide mechanisms could be better they are rack and pinion with electric motors I would have preferred hydraulic operated slides the large slide struggles to move in and out.

RE: I need to setup a 2007 Chevy Tahoe for towing.

Likely, do a search. You'll probably have to buy a new base plate and cable and wiring. And break away equipment. I did a search and didn't find anything.

I need to setup a 2007 Chevy Tahoe for towing.

I bought a nice low mileage 2007 Chevy Tahoe to pull behind my 05 Fleetwood Expedition. I have a 10,000 LBS towing capacity on the coach. I got a Ready Brute tow bar with the coach when we bought it but I am missing some parts. I need the base plates and the brake cable that attaches to the vehicle brakes. I was going to tow my old car with a dolly but decided to buy a different car. Anyone on here tow a vehicle this size with the same Ready Brute setup Tahoe, Yukon, Durango or Explorer?

RE: Water hose storage??

I read reviews on the Zero G and there seems to be a lot of problems with them leaking that sucks because I was going to buy one.

RE: Water hose storage??

I wonder how something like this would work. Link It doesn't say drinking water but I guess I could replace the hose. The size would fit in my bin. Man it would be nice to just pull out how much hose you need then have it retract.

Water hose storage??

I need a new water hose my cheap 50' Walmart hose is a kinked up mess. I did a search looking for a cheap hose reel with no luck. Maybe I just need a better hose but it would be nice if it had a reel to reel it up anyone know where to get something like that without spending a bunch? I found some in the $300+ range but I don't want to spend that much for my water hose.

RE: Car dolly's what to look for?

i just bought american car dolly. exactly what your're lookin for ! So you own this one and have no affiliation with the company if so how much have you used it? I saw it advertised on my local CL. I prefer electric brakes. I have had surge brakes on other trailers they are pain in the rear.

RE: Car dolly's what to look for?

Maybe ask in dinghy. I searched that forum and did not really get the answers I was looking for.

Car dolly's what to look for?

I want to get a tow dolly what features am I looking for? What tie down type? what design? I do not want to break the bank I have plenty of room to store it I already own 2 16' car hauler trailers one enclosed and one open but don't want to deal with a trailer that size. I don't want to trade cars mine can't be towed 4 down a 2008 Mazda 6 auto FWD. I have the ability to repack or replace the bearings and races if needed. There are many on our local CL used. I am setup for electric brakes on our MH. What do I look for? Eventually I will get a different car that can be towed 4 down I have a tow bar that I got with our coach.

RE: Water system woes.

We have a trip planned for the end of July for 6 days dry camping we are going to have to do better with water conservation. They do have a guy that comes by for a fee and he empty's the sewer and fills with fresh water. Looks like I will need him every couple days. We are going to Dune Fest with our ATV's & UTV it is a blast anyone on here going? It is at Winchester Bay Oregon July 23rd thru the 28th.

RE: Water system woes.

Well surprise the tank was empty. That surprises me my RV's before this one would always have full black and grey water tanks before the fresh water was empty. Now I know the gauge for fresh water is not accurate as it read a 1/4 tank. I opened the fresh water drain and nothing came out so I closed it put some water in the tank and like magic the pump built up pressure and shut off. Feel kinda dumb now for even posting this. But I still need to get some filters.

RE: Water system woes.

If the valve is not shifted from shore water the water pump will continue to run. Check you main input valve and make sure that it is not on shore water. I will check it but it worked good for the first day I will make sure it is fully closed. Thanks I need things to check.

Water system woes.

My 05 expedition seems to give me a new issue to track down each time we use it. This last weekend dry camping on the Oregon Coast day 2 the water pump would not shut off. I need to track down the issue the tank gauge shows it still has a 1/4 tank of water and I would be very surprised if it was empty knowing how much water was used. I replaced the water filter before we left but I will check that anyway. I also need to check to see if there is a screen trap. I need to order some new filters it has a Watts 10" single stage filter housing. I see filters rated from 10 microns down to .5 microns with prices all over the place. I would like to order several anyone have a good source? The filters are 2.5" x 10" they actually measure less than that but that seems to be the right ones. Thanks Mike

RE: Rooftop ac repair

You might find the compressor is also made for other applications and find a replacement that way or maybe not good luck. Good job on fixing one of them.

RE: Front AC not working?

Have you replaced the compactor on the front one. Worthwhile cheap fix. I replaced both and fixed the issue. What is the compactor?
Gundog 06/17/19 09:00am Class A Motorhomes
RE: Front AC not working?

I used a register deflector available at most good hardware stores. Works great to get the air where I need it most! Quick and easy. That is a good idea thanks.
Gundog 06/17/19 08:34am Class A Motorhomes
RE: Front AC not working?

This is the vent cover it has Vent cover If you close the louvers almost all air is forced to the rear of the coach there are only 2 round vents forward and hardly any air moves forward through them. With the vent cover removed it pushes a lot of air. The vent can't be turned around because of the fresh air portion of the vent. I need a way to divert some air forward. The unit is a Coleman Airxcel model 8534B8797
