RE: How stupid can people be

Back in the ' good old days ' cars had real rear bumpers that you could get a solid grip with both hands. Nowadays not so much. That leaves the only way is to lie on your back and hold on with one hand because you need the other hand to take the obligatory selfie. Art

RE: Plastic toilet and sink cleaning?

Cleaner sold for use on glass stove tops works perfectly. Actually a very fine rubbing compound that will polish glass if you have the patience. I use it on a folded up paper towel with excellent results. Art

RE: Champion 2k in storage for three years. Advice starting it?

As stupid as it sounds, when all the gas is drained, turn the unit s-l-o-w-l-y end over end and also sideways. Having a bit of oil spread around will help a lot for longer life. Art,

RE: Planning to replace a cracked fender

Few years back blew a tire up in Alaska/Yukon and took out most of the wheel trim. After trip was over, took off the opposite side trim and made a plaster mold. Some gel-coat and fiberglas cloth, couple of afternoons work/play and had a better than original Wheel well trim. Art.

RE: Adjust brakes with drop axle??

As the ghost reply from yesterday said, try with the tire and rim removed. This will allow you to use a 90 degree bent spoon. Takes a bit longer but is do-able. When I rebuilt my trailer and doubled up the frame I had to use drop axles to get away from that 'haul on logging roads' clearance look. Art.

RE: Truck Camper Sub-floor Issue and Repair

3/4 x3/4 x 1/8 angle iron. Notch the ends so it is supported on the framing with the flange supporting that questionable joining practice. Drill and countersink the vertical flange (lower than centerline) for suitable flat head screws to drive in parallel to the floor sheet. Before final assembly, dampen the wood with a sprayer bottle of water and get some urethane glue in the split. Practice dry fit up first as the final fit will be much easier. Art.

RE: EOH Brake Question

Braking front axle tries to wind up spring with axle twist. Rear of front spring is forced up which moves equalizer upwards. This also forces the rear spring down which loads more weight on the rear axle. Pretty much the same results as towing nose high. Art.

RE: what are these bits for?

Easy way to find out. Put all in a small container and leave where you have no access to them. Within one week of travel you will know what they are and as a bonus, the current price for same. :B Art

RE: Powerpole Info Needed

I think the pricey tools are more for faster commercial work. I soldered all of mine over ten years ago. I did all battery connections,very low cost, took more time, and has never needed repair. Art.

RE: Water hose

Stupid as it sounds, this really works . Made like BX cable and has a very flexible (possibly silicon)liner. Will hand coil easily in a 12 inch diameter coil. Personally used at +5F. Art.

RE: Arctic Fox black tank valve glued in?

Try another scenario. The tank and the valve are both ABS. The valve is glued to the tank. The clamp is there to prevent the valve from being pushed on to far when assembling (glue sets up real quick). Valve is normally changed as AGESILAUS pointed out. Finally and most important, find somebody else to work on your rig. Art.
