Should I use caulk with a T-style door holder?

I want to replace a broken plastic T-style door holder with a metal one. Do I need to use caulk when I screw it on?

Learning to use a two-way radio

Recently I bought a pair of Midland GXT1000VP4 GMRS Two-Way Radios so my wife and I can communicate with each other when she is hiking and I am at our campsite. Based on your many comments we still have not decided if they will serve this purpose. In the meantime, we are trying to learn how to use them. The instructions that came with them are not very helpful. Can you suggest a source that might be more helpful? Thanks.

Cost of FCC 2-Way-Radio License

Recently I bought a pair of Midland GXT1000VP4 GMRS Two-Way Radios so my wife and I can communicate with each other when she is hiking and I am at our campsite. Now I see that the box says "FCC License Required." Apparently there is a cost of $70 just to submit an application. And I have no idea what the license costs or how long it is good. And it seems that we can't even try out the radios to see if they are suitable for the intended purpose and return them if they are not without paying the FCC a bunch of money. HELP! Can you clue me in as to what I got myself into, what it will cost, and how to avoid paying a bunch of $ to the FCC if we decide these won't be suitable for us? Thanks.

Walkie Talkies

I know this topic has been covered before. But technology is constantly changing and improving(?) I want a pair of walkie talkies that the wife and I can use when she is hiking and I am at our campsite. What brand and model have you used in this way and would recommend?

RE: Will my WFCO 55 amp over charge?

My WFCO charger boiled my battery dry. To keep batteries charged during storage I use a BatteryMINDer charger-maintainer-desulfator. That has worked well for years.

Converting Onan generator from gas to propane

Our Northern Lite 10-2 CD has an Onan propane-fueled generator which has never given us a bit of trouble. I am considering the purchase of a Class A with a gasoline-fueled Onan generator and have heard a lot of horror stories about problems with such generators. So I am wondering if a gasoline-fueled Onan generator can be converted to propane-fueled.

Stability Issues

I am considering the purchase of a Class A. But I keep seeing posts about stability issues. How common are such problems? Are they more common on certain brands/models/ lengths? Have you had a problem? With what brand/model/length? What did you do to correct it? Did that solve the problem?

Have you owned a Fleetwood 25Y or 26Y?

I am considering the purchase of a Fleetwood 25Y or 26Y. Have you owned one? Which one? What did you like or dislike? Did you have the queen-bed option or the twin bed-option?

Fleetwood Fiesta or Terra: What's the difference?

I have a possible interest in buying an older Fleetwood 26Y with Twin Beds. I have 2006 brochures for the Fiesta and for the Terra and I can't see any difference beside the name. Can you tell me what's different?

RE: Let’s hear your best MPG and driving style ?

With our Dodge dually diesel carrying our Northern Lite 10-2 CD, we get about 15 mpg driving 55-60 mph.

RE: Time to replace batteries??

My 2008 Mazda is still using the original battery. How is that possible? When I'm not using the vehicle, I desulfate the battery with a BatteryMINDER 2012.

RE: Does such a Class A exist?

Here's an example of what I'm looking for: Fleetwood Terra 26Y Twin Bed model.

RE: Does such a Class A exist?

It seems to me that you are really looking for a Class C rather than a Class A and you just can't admit it to yourself.What does that mean? Why do you think I want a Class C when I say I want a Class A?

RE: Does such a Class A exist?

How long and how much to spend?Shorter is better -- say 25 ft. Budget: maybe $30K.

Does such a Class A exist?

Does such a Class A exist? Our Northern Lite 10-2 CD slide-in truck camper suits us perfectly except for three drawbacks. But first some features we like: The roomy dinette with a large window. No slides to mess with and malfunction. The drawbacks: At age 84, climbing into and out of the cabover bed multiples times per night. The standard-size RV toilet, which seems more suitable for a child than for an adult male – and not enough room to swap it out. Plus the air conditioner does not permit the option of cooling the sleeping area without cooling the entire interior. We like the Leisure Vans Unity model (not a Class A) with rear twin beds and loads of overhead storage. But we don’t care for the transverse dinette with a limited view of the outdoors. Do you know of a Class A with rear twin beds, a toilet with residential-size elongated seat, the ability to air condition the bedroom without cooling the entire interior, a roomy dinette with a good view of the outdoors, and no slide? And I guess I should mention that our budget dictates used not new.

Has anyone heard from Sleepy?

I haven't seen a post by Sleepy recently. Has anyone been in touch with him?

RE: Norcold Fridge Defrost Cycle

Dometic has no such defrost Cycle. NORCOLD DOES. DougThanks for the correction. I thought we had a Dometic but I just checked and it's a Norcold. Note that I have changed the original post from "Dometic" to "Norcold." So which is it: 48 hours from the start of or from the end of the previous cycle?
