RE: Warning! Publci Toilet Hygene

It occurs to me that getting a rash as described is probably more likely from cleanser that wasn't thoroughly rinsed off. That's been my experience anyhow. I keep reading that toilet seats are statistically cleaner than door knobs, cell phones, even kitchen counters.

RE: 4 season camping

If price is not a concern, and since you're in the northwest, you may want to check out Bigfoot. I think they are a step above the others mentioned. I finally got to look at one first hand last week. VERY well built and stout. And very ready for extreme weather.

RE: Composting Toilet

That guy spent a lot of time on his knees in that video. It's definitely not for this old f*rt.

RE: Water heater plastic plug

Does anyone know of a nylon plug that has an integrated drain valve? Thanks in advance.They used to be readily available. I have one. When this thread started, I was quite surprised that they weren't mentioned. Then I searched. I guess they're no long made.

RE: Corrugated underbelly

The only places I see it used is at RV manufacturing facilities. Probably start there. Maybe a local RV shop could guide you to a source.

RE: Corrugated underbelly

Like the others, I've purchased 4x8' sheets at several suppliers here in the Spokane area. Cut it to size, and use a little Gorilla Tape on the seams. When I added corroplast to my trailer, I supported it with several strips of angle aluminum between the frame rails.

RE: Chrysler UConnect

I would hope that being to the dealer over this they might know these tricks.One would hope... IF that is indeed your issue, this info might prove useful. It gets kinda deep, but the fix is in there. You might try going to the Uconnect site and entering your VIN just to see what they think. On edit, I now see that you listed the problems. Doesn't sound like I was helpful. Good luck.

RE: Chrysler UConnect

I recently had an issue with GPS not working correctly. There was an update available to fix it, but it was failing to automatically download and install. I was able to go to the Uconnect website and download and install it myself. But some people have been unable to do that and had to manually jump through some hoops that eventually enabled them to download the correct file and fix the issue. If that's your problem, you could probably find the solution on

RE: Can installing weight distribution hitch be a DIY project?

Definitely a do it yourself project. As mentioned, you may need special tools. Instead of purchasing those tools, I simply went to a shop and had them tighten an torque the big bolts. I offered them $20, they turned it down. Only took a second.

RE: Changing Atwood water heater plug to brass

Did a little reading. CPVC is rated to 200F. This sounds like a great winter project. Off to the hardware store.

RE: Changing Atwood water heater plug to brass

DFORD pic looked plastic. You can get a Plastic type extension and do the same thing DFORD has done without using metal. DougWould that plastic be rated for the heat?

RE: Changing Atwood water heater plug to brass

X2!! Share please! A little surfing revealed this chart. Doesn't look very promising to me.

RE: Better/safer to have only one w/d bar? Or none?

If it was me and my Ram pulling your trailer, I would go without in a heartbeat. I have been unable to find this 500 lb limit on my hitch. The owners manual mentions something a little north of 1100 lbs for tongue weight with NO mention of wd hitch. I believe there is ZERO % chance of physical damage. The biggest concern might be towing characteristics and control.

RE: Better/safer to have only one w/d bar? Or none?

I towed my trailer without the Equal-I-zer bars a couple times. It towed fine but was more sensitive to passing semis and the like. Your trailer doesn't appear that it would be too much for a newer half ton. I have a similar truck and would go without. If you haven't already, consider airing truck tires to max, assuming they are the OEM P-metric.

RE: 30 FT Full Timing Camper

I would consider a bunk house or toy hauler, either of which would give you some area that you could modify to meet your needs.

RE: Should I disconnect WD bars

Only if you need to disconnect them to level.

RE: Will snow damage your average toy hauler roof?

You could run a heater in there for a couple days to melt that snow. I agree that the freeze/thaw cycle is probably the worst worry. As of late, I've started covering my trailer in the winter with shrink wrap over a peaked center ridge that causes snow to run off.

RE: Very good video on Buddy Heaters

TurnThePage and ksg5000, Because ever year more than one person dies from improperly using a non vented combustion heater. Combustion products are not limited to just Co2 and Co. I prefer to not inhale them. I won't run my generator while sleeping ether.I understand your reasons, I've read them here many times. There are many products I'm not interested in, but I don't sit here preaching to the masses to avoid them. In the winter I use a buddy heater almost daily in my sticks and bricks to keep my basement office warmed up. It works great and is SAFE. Happy Holidays!

RE: Very good video on Buddy Heaters

Guys ran a test and the heater passed with flying colors - but the narrator still said he wouldn't use one. Conclusion seemed a bit biased to me. Totally agree! Why are we making this non-issue into an issue?

RE: WFCO 8875 converter

It seems my converter has decided to die. Anyone know if it has internal breakers or fuses? I just found the problem a few minutes ago and can't trouble shoot for a couple of days. If I have to replace would you go with another WFCO or a Powermax? 8875's have been discontinued. It has a 15 amp 120 volt circuit breaker in the power panel. The convert will not be on the GFI circuit. There also are Two 30 or 40 amp 12 volt reverse polarity fuses on the converter. There is also an inline reset-able fuse within 6' of the battery.The WFCO converter on my Fleetwood product did not have it's own circuit breaker. It simply plugged into an outlet. I'm not even sure that outlet went through a breaker, aside from the main breakers for the whole RV. I've never seen this inline fuse either, and I've combed through this trailer thoroughly over the years.
