RE: Sanitizing water system

You mean 1 gallon of Clorox? I believe that is 6.25% or 62500 ppm of chlorate not 100%. Normal target for drinking water systems is about 1 ppm but I guess 4 pp is fine if you are slightly superchlorinating. Clorox itself recommends 8 drops per gallon or 1/8 teaspoon per 1.5 gallons of water: Disinfect water. If my math is right that's about a teaspoon per 10 gal of water

RE: Norcold fridge issue

I found the door and the burner. I'll have to find some canned air here in Missoula where we are now. Thx for the suggestions.

RE: App or site to plan route

RV Trip Planner RVTW is what I use and is quite popular with a lot of folks. It routes your vehicle according to the height that you put in the software avoiding low bridges and such. It uses shows the actual road miles to a stop, it shows all it shows campgrounds on the map along with many diffifert types of places. The list is too long to show here. The developers are actively adding features, they had two major releases in the last couple of months and they have a forum on a different RV sites that they listen to and respond occasionally to question not answered by other users. It is pay $30/yr IIRC

Norcold fridge issue

OK we have a Norcold fridge that right now is working on 120V but not on propane. It was showing a 'F' error code in the display but that has gone away. Arctic Fox 25Y TT I assume this means that I need to clean the burner. The Norcold manual is worthless BTW. So do I need to pull the fridge out or can it accessed from the outside. There is a panel outside roughly aligned with the fridge but I assumed that was for the furnace with is installed under the fridge. I'm going out to pull that panel off in a minute so I may answer that myself Just how difficult is it to pull the fridge out? I only see two screw covers on the top flange, surely there must be more? Any other suggestions? The propane tank in near full, the oven, hot water and burner top all work. The 12 V fuse is OK.

RE: Wheel chocks

Well, it may not move any when those are down, but many people chock the wheels before they drop the trailer, to preclude any movement before the other stuff is done. ........................... Ditto on that and TT don't have landing legs. I have had a trailer start to roll backwards when there is no obvious slope the instant that the truck is disconnected from the hitch. Lesson learned, put chocks in first then disconn truck.

RE: Wheel chocks

I would not say they are a lawsuit waiting to happen. Because as far as I know, every version clearly says in the instructions that they are not to be used as a replacement for wedge chocks. So if you don't use both, it is on you as the user if anything happens. ------------------------- Yeah in an ideal world, which we do not live in, we have lawyers instead. Look at the drowning warnings on 5 gallon buckets for example, and the warnings plastered all over ladders, and hot coffee lawsuits.

RE: Wheel chocks

We went thru several of those flimsy plastic chocks like they sell at Walmart, having your RV roll because it crushed some of those could be lawsuit fodder. I finally saw some heavy black rubber chocks at Northern Tool and those have worked much better. X-Chocks warn you right in the package that they will not substitute for regular chocks, they are intended to reduce floor bounce and vibration, not stop your RV from rolling.

RE: Mnnesota and Wisconsin

We've been alternating 3 or 4 days of boondocking with a FHU park or a COE park if we are back in their territory. So we could boondock weekends and get a FHU during the week. Right now we are up in the air, my wife works for the schools and the local school board is trying to determine which way the political wind is blowing. She was supposed to be back 8/24 but now they are talking about special training on the week of 8/10 which may be online or maybe not. Right now they have plans that no middle schoolers would follow, period. So we cannot make long term reservations right now.

RE: GFCI Issue looking for a solution

Could be a bad GFCI, I just had to replace ours. It would not reset.

Mnnesota and Wisconsin

Whats the camping environment like in Minnesota and Wisconsin right now? We will be in Montana Monday and I want to return to FL via Hwy 2 then south once we get to Minnesota. So far we haven't encountered anything more than minor irritations in the states we've been thru. We slipped thru NM before that governor cracked down again. And the worst thing we've seen was closed visitor centers, restaurants, attractions and such. we have to be back in FL, in mid August, so my wife can work for 3 weeks and retire from the school system.

RE: mastoid bone hearing aid equalizer ????

Pain from extremely loud but totally ineffective ear bud hearing aids make the inner each itch then later scream in pain. Well that shows that you were not working with an audiologist and ENT physician. The audiologist will give you several hearing tests and map out which frequencies need to be boosted. A modern in ear hearing aid is programmed to amplify the frequencies that you are deficient in and only boost each frequency band by the correct amount. So go pro and get yourself a good audiologist.

RE: Did you notice..........

We have been camping since late May and have had no problems getting into a CG when we wanted to. Right now we are alternating 4 days or so boondocking with a couple of days in a private CG to use their tanks and water and otherwise enjoying FHU. We started in FL and have been in 9 states so far, Missoula coming up after boondocking just north of YNP. I have no idea what it's like in the NE or the Left Coast right now. NM is now to be avoided but we got thru before the governor cracked down again.

RE: mastoid bone hearing aid equalizer ????

You really need to work with an audiologists. Find one you like and let him advise you. I have molded in ear buds and yes they are irritating for a week or so until you get adjusted to them. The mastoid type only works for a sub group of people with hear loss.

RE: Exterior coax connector cover

If you are Handy, as Red Green used to say, you can rig up a new tether using 1/16th aircraft cable that you can get from a hardware store. I put tethers on my tank drain cover and dump hose storage tube for example. Otherwise just replace the box and use some silicone sealant to prevent leaks.

RE: Anyone use Quick connect for water hose?

I've been using these: Amazon We picked them up at a local store tho. We do not have a door over our fittings so we just use the male end on the water fill and tank flush fittings. They have a cap dangling on a short plastic tether than fits right over the end of the male quick connect. I need to order some more so I can put then on our extra hoses. I don't know if these are any better than other brand but they work.

RE: Help with Roof

I did some patching on our old fiver. I don't know why you are plan to cut the flap off. I would put that back down with dicor under it and then cover the whole torn area with new material as you describe. Eternabond or this new super strong 4 inch Gorilla tape around the edges. I used Hengs coating over the whole roof after that but that's optional.

RE: CITY WATER CONNECTION DRIP?

Did you replace the rubber or plastic washer? They commonly get lost.
