RE: Low Voltage on One 50A Leg

Have seen differences on the 2 legs of 2 or 3 volts depending upon which A/C is running at the time. Never have seen a 12 volt difference. As mentioned above, verify that the low voltage is not in your rig, then ask the CG if they can fix your pedestal. Some older CGs have wiring issues that can cause these imbalances and cannot be fixed without rewiring the whole CG.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

When are you going to install the sink? You've already cut the hole for the stove, so you might as well do the one for the sink too. Did you put some type of finish or sealer on the wall before you put up the wallpaper? Putting wallpaper on bare wood can make it very hard to ever take off if you want to change it later. What's next after the kitchen area? The bathroom? The living/sleeping area? When are you going to re-install the black and grey tanks?

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Not really a fan of the PT Cruiser. For some reason, it reminds me on an AMC Pacer. To each their own, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Had some irises we decided to get rid of so I mowed them every time I cut the grass. Figured that would do it. They came right back the next year. Gotta respect a plant with that kind of perseverance. They are now allowed to grow unmolested.

What about the flowers? What kind were they and will they survive?

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Hmmmm. I NEVER do things like that. I usually blame it on DW or one of the neighbors.

RE: What do you shut off when leaving for a trip

For those with high efficiency furnaces, check your owner's manual for the minimum recommended temperature setting. Keeping the house too cold can cause condensation in the heat exchanger where the furnace was not designed to have condensation.

RE: Keeping water out of revoltuon mh engine air intake

I don't think at highway speeds that much of a low pressure area could develop. IIRC, the opening is about 4" X 7" (maybe 8"). The intake feeds to the turbo through the filter, so I think the turbo would generate way more suction than any venturi effect created by the shield.

RE: What do you shut off when leaving for a trip

Turn off the water, turn off the water heater, set the thermostat appropriately (60 in winter, 80 in summer) and disable garage door opener. Set exterior cameras to always armed and set alarm system to immediate trigger. Neighbors know how long I will be gone and keep an eye on the place.

RE: Insurance claim

When my MH was rear-ended, the insurance adjuster looked at it and took a bunch of pictures of the damage. He then stated that he had no idea on the price of MH parts, so I should take it to any one of 4 places and they would pay whatever it cost. 3 were RV repair/sales facilities, 1 was a fiberglass repair specialist. Went with the fiberglass repair specialist and no regrets.

RE: Keeping water out of revoltuon mh engine air intake

Friend has a Sportscoach with the air intake on the side like you describe. His has what looks like a little hood scoop covering the intake with the scoop opening facing the rear. Haven't heard him complain about water in his air filter. Scoop has a fairly large opening in the back so it doesn't restrict airflow, I guess.

RE: Add water to class A while boon docking

On my Newmar, if I set the selector in the wet bay to "fill tanks" and the valves in the pump bay to "winterize", it will suck water from the external non-pressurized source and fill the tank. Takes FOREVER to fill 50 gallons this way. Think the drill driven pump would probably be faster.

RE: Dicor lap Sealant

Do not use self-leveling sealants on anything but horizontal surfaces.

RE: Hydrogen Peroxide

They sell higher concentrations of H2O2 at water treatment stores. The local water softener place sells 35% food grade for $60 per gallon. It is NOT inexpensive. In our area, it is used to remove sulphur smell from well water. Chlorine is much cheaper, but it has its own set of issues.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Like the wallpaper. The stone adds a nice contrast to all the wood. Hopefully the lack of UV protection won't be an issue inside the MH.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Well, you always sand between coats on any automotive finish, and POR15 is an automotive finish. Don't remember, but does the clear contain UV protectant? Maybe he should add some ultra fine metal flake to one of the layers just for that shimmer effect. Wonder what they mean when they print on the can "For metal substrates only". Guess he'll find out over the next year or so.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Looked like the POR15 raised the grain on the walnut. Are you fine sanding between coats to get a glass like surface? Or are you just applying more POR15 to the previous layer? Brings out the color and grain quite nicely. Looks good.

RE: Dometic awning issue

Not weak motor, as the awning retracts fine. Is some kind of binding in the arms between the 6" and 18" deployed positions. I would go over every part of the arms that is touching between 6" and 18" and look for signs of rubbing. If you want to get nuts, take a vernier caliper and start comparing ID and OD of areas that touch where they bind. I would guess that some part of the arms got squeezed or bent and is creating more friction than the gas struts can overcome at that point.

RE: mastoid bone hearing aid equalizer ????

If you are just looking to use these to listen to music a few hours a day, and not for daily conversations with people in the room with you, check out these reviews. Bone Conduction Headphones or just go here on Google. Google Search They do handle phone calls if paired to your phone, but not conversations with people in the same room.

RE: tire pressure

Weigh it at a CAT scale then look up the numbers on the Michelin site for how much air to put in each tire based upon the weight it has to carry. Make sure all your tanks are filled like they would be for you when you are traveling. Get in all the people and their stuff for the weigh in. I run 88 in the front, 92 in the rear based upon my traveling weight and the Michelin tire pressure charts. Edit: The people who make your tires know the most about how much air to put in them.

RE: Anyone use Quick connect for water hose?

^^X2 Get the ones with the rubber o-rings. A light coating of silicone grease will keep the o-rings sealing well. Used QDs a lot when we used to take many shorter trips each year. Not so much anymore as we either boondock or stay at our winter location for 6 months.
