RE: To buy a generator or not...

I was curious, so I looked at inciweb. I think I would cancel that trip. There were fires all around there including in Shasta and the Dixie fire south of there that is 200K acres and only 22% contained. The smoke is already there and will probably only be worse in 2 weeks. We just decided not to go up north because of these fires. Look what happened last year, how fast these fires got out of control

RE: Black tank treatments.

Never used any chemicals in my tanks. 25+ years...never needed anything. Maybe add granulated laundry detergent once a year.

RE: 2013 Ecoboost overheating

The thermostat would not know if you had a trailer or not.

RE: Awning will not roll back up

You might have tightened in backwards.

RE: 50 Amp plugging into 30 amp service

30 Amp pedestals are only wired for a 30 Amp load. Keep that in mind.

RE: Onan 4000 generator cranks but won't start

OP says he's getting spark. It's carbureted, so we know it's getting air. He tried starting fluid. All that's left is compression and timing. Check the compression ($15.00 tool). If you have 80+ psi then you are okay. Move on to timing problems. If you have less than 80psi, you have a huge problem. Of course, he could have a faulty oil pressure sensor that won't allow it to start.

RE: Storage

25+ years of owning RV's....never a rodent. Clean it. Fill any holes you can get to with spray foam.

RE: Hot Water Heater Funny Issue

And that is why it's not called a hot water heater. ;) Why would anyone need a "hot water heater"?

RE: 34 ft 89 winnebago chieftain

Your springs: You're probably sitting on a P30 chassis. You can find them @ SD Truck Springs. Easy to figure out what set you need. I would do a YouTube search for the genny problem. RV shops are expensive. You might even find it is cheaper to buy a Predator generator rather then fix what you have. Dropping you water tank is the best way to look for the water disappearance. A motorcycle jack makes it much easier to do.

RE: RV Hot Skin (Exterior electrification)

Where was the junction of the two cords?My guess is your connection between the two cords was exposed to moisture. Your garage outlet should be a GFCI protected outlet. If it isn't, you should change it asap.

RE: TR: where did all the water go?

Powell has been like that for two years now. It won't get better anytime soon. I was there last fall, and I was afraid to take the pontoon boat in the slots in fear of hitting a sand bar.

RE: Portable Rolling 5-10 Gal Water Container

Or, you could get a $20 drill pump and a couple of 5 gallon water containers. If you want to go all out, a 12V water pump with a switch would work great.

RE: Heated hose

I just use the hose when needed. Don't leave it hooked up. And, if it's that cold, you want to make sure the water supply is on at your destination.

RE: Bathroom dispensers

Yep. Just like home (except in brushed nickel). We have always used several of these. If you buy quality ones they stay put rather well. Suction cup baskets.

RE: trying to get stuck tire off

I carry a valve stem cap that has the little piece t tighten them. They cost $1.

RE: How best to improve a primitive RV site to rent it out?

Is there a local guy that pumps septic? That same guy might even want to include water delivery (no...not using the same truck...LOL). That would take care of 2/3 of RV'ers needs.
