RE: Black Tank Valve Replacement

One way that works for us that I do about once every couple of months. Dump tank; dump a five gallon bucket of water through toilet, close dump valve and pour in about a pint of cheap vegetable cooking oil (canola) and then wait a few minutes to let the oil float on the surface of the water that remains. Next go out and work the valve open and closed as rapidly as you can. Valve gate will pick up enough oil after five or six open and closes to make a surprising difference. Works for us for a good twenty years so far. Art.

RE: Generac GP3300 modifications

If it is surging now, putting windings in series for full output as 120VAC is not going to change anything. Get engine running and governed smoothly and your microwave will probably be happy. Art.

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.
