RE: Resuming Rving... ideas dealing with Covid.

So much garbage on this thread. Too many posts claiming numbers with no reality behind them, just personal motive. Here's a fact I do know. I contracted covid from a surface and NOT from anything airborne. I know exactly who I got it from and when I was exposed. I know that person was NOT sneezing or coughing and had very minimal symptoms. I also know that you don't want this. While I didn't end up in the hospital, it was a misery that I have not experienced in 60 years of life. The pain and damage to my body is unmistakable and if I had not been in good physical shape, things may have turned out differently (according to my Dr.'s). While I was sick, an old friend died from covid 19. So assume it's on every public surface - because it CAN be. Take precautions and don't use anyone's personal agenda or politics to make decisions about your own safety.

RE: The Horrible RV Magazine

Agree with you OP. And now you know why so many have left this forum as well. FWIW, I contacted them and cancelled my subscription. Told them what I thought of it and that it was so bad I didn't even care if I got my money back - just stop sending it to me. (Or at least if they changed the type of paper, it could be used for the one thing it could be good for). They quickly sent me a check for $24 and said they cancelled the subscription. I got the latest piece of TP anyway and read where Marcus said he got the message but frankly, is too arrogant to fix it.

RE: Wonder if truck makers will start making 10001 # 1/2 tons.

House bill 1204 has nothing to do with vehicles. It is in regard to plastic packaging. HB 1204 is a *Companion Bill to SB 5256. HB 1204 Senate bill 5256 is in regard to the discussion at hand. It includes "light duty motor vehicles with a scale weight of up to 10,000 pounds". So having a 1/2T with a GVWR of 10,001# wouldn't do you any good. OTOH, there is no definition in the bill of what a Heavy duty vehicle is. Note that hydrogen vehicles that are propelled SOLELY by an electric motor are viewed the same (in this bill) as all-electric vehicles. SB 5256 bill has not gone to Committee yet. SB 5256 *Companion bills are to be identical in Wa. State. They are bills simultaneously brought up in the House and Senate in order to expedite passage to law. Also of note, Wa. state law absolutely forbids any bill from embracing more than one subject. This has not stopped law makers (or private citizens *cough* Eyman) from trying to do so on many occasions (they never learn). When that happens, The new law is challenged in the Wa. State Supreme Court and they throw out the new Law. It's dead at that point. To get the law passed, the entire process has to be repeated.

RE: Help with window leak

Somewhere in the extruded aluminum of the window frame is a joint where the two ends come together. That joint is sealed with some goop. Make sure there isn't any voids/bubbles/holes in that sealant. And stop using silicone, it's no good for rv's. Plan on removing it and using the right products.

RE: Cold Ambient Temps = Higher Alternator Voltage?

Yes, the intake heater grid can stay on after engine starting in very cold weather. NORMAL. If this continues for more than a few minutes after starting-- not normal. Yes, in most cases but if it is extremely cold out, the grids will start cycling again if the truck is stopped and idling - even if it has been running hard for hours and is at full operating temps. It may also go to a high idle under those conditions. Wow. The good news is that we have never been in cold enough conditions to have that happen. So-- disclaimer: No idea what happens in well below freezing conditions, as that is when we head SOUTH. Yeah, we've learned to never be surprised when the girds light up. Even a super cold wind will turn them on out of the blue. There's a long section in the maint. manual about the logic but suffice to say, there are many conditions that engage them. Some are even emissions related.

Before this thread gets run away with.. slightly higher voltage in cold is normal and the voltage sags you were seeing where the grid heaters cycling. Your truck is fine.

RE: Denial on claim - need someone from GS to contact me

Glow plugs have absolutely NO EFFECT on, or relationship to, head gaskets. PERIOD. This isn't even close to being a good lie GS.

RE: seattle rv parks

I live there. There are tons of really lousy RV parks here - I mean BAD. The only place I would stay at is Lake Pleasant in Bothell. It's located in a suburb of Seattle (about 20 mins away) and is very nice. It's also convenient to stores and restaurants. I would stay there if I didn't live around the corner from it.

RE: I just got the new RV Magazine

It's more of a Martha Stewart rag now. None of the departments or contributors I enjoy and none of the tech. Just a bunch scabbed together junk from various free lancers. What a cheap move Marcus - you really blew it. I will not be renewing either.

RE: Water proofing slide toppers.

I use a long piece of styrofoam insulation stood on edge. Pink grade is more durable.

RE: Help ID'ing tub

If the pan is fiberglass, why not repair it? It really isn’t difficult and you’ll have it out, anyway. Then you could reinforce it however you want. It’s definitely a design I’ve never noticed before. And yeah, it shouldn’t have split. Good luck with it. RVing is such an adventure, isn’t it? Apparently all RV pans are made out of plastic (ABS) rather than the fiberglass that's used EVERYPLACE else. It's about 1/16" thick and frankly, I don't know how it lasted this long. This is the 4th RV we've had over 30+ years with a shower and the first that has failed. Manufacturers seem to stay up nights figuring out how to make stuff ever more junky.

RE: Help ID'ing tub

Path, I think you're right about the brand and thanks for the link. I can just see the white logo thingy in the back corner. Northwood will sell me a new tub at a reasonable price. I need another large item from them so I'm going to drive to Oregon to save shipping/crating on everything. Kip, this is the only combo unit of this size and has a very distinct shape. Trying to use something else would require a new surround ($$$) and take drastic surgery. I'm going to fiberglass (or have it done) the area that's weak to keep this from happening again. It should not have cracked under my 164# frame!
