RE: Don't let your guard down, Covid is still out there...

There are a lot of callous replies here. Some still have this ignorant idea that the COVID virus is a hoax. My daughter works in a Vegas hospital ward and still watches these people die. Yea. It's still out there, and it's real.

RE: House AC went out can I hook up to 20 amp gfci

No one mentioned what could happen if you overload that circuit. You could burn up you AC unit ($$$).

RE: roof repair?

If you attempt to repair it, do it the correct way. Cut the roofing material 4-6" past the affected area. Cut our as little plywood as possible. Reinforce the cross section with flat 2X4's at each end, being sure you slide the lumber under the existing plywood. Use screws, not nails (they hace 3X the holding power). Add the new plywood. Screw it all down, including the edge of the existing plywood. Cut the new roof material larger than the piece you cut out. Glue it in place. Use Eternabond tape on top of the new roofing material, to ensure permanent adhesion (Eternabond tape is a real pain to remove).

RE: roof repair?

They make a rubber roof repair tape that can be found at most RV part centers.Just a thought to stop further moisture damage. Eternabond.

RE: Curiosity of RV Park parking?

I don't let what other people do affect me that much.

RE: Awning Repair Kit Recommendations

Just use some Eterna-bond tape. Everyone should carry a roll of that stuff, just like ductape and caulking.

RE: Super Slide Falling Apart

Looks like a screw snagged those parts. Lay under it while someone operates it. You'll figure out what it is by all the unusual noises. Then you can really dig into it.

RE: Portable air conditioner

The fact that the entire unit is in the same room with you makes them noisy and bulky. The need to run hoses to the outdoors makes them inefficient, due to heat losses through the hose. Typically, a window unit will do a better job of cooling, even if it has a lower BTU output rating. It'll also cost less. The portables that sit in the same room as you create as much heat as they cool. Get a widow unit like Skibane says.

RE: Water Issue

Simply tapping on the hose connection could loosen up whatever is stopping the check valve from operating properly. If not, they are easy enough to replace (vs paying a kid $75/hr to do).

RE: Diesel fuel prices … how is that affecting your RV travel ?

I just sold my 5th wheel. It would cost me $1050 to drive to and from to see my grand children in Phoenix. That's not going to happen. I can fly round trip, do an Airbnb for the same price, saving all that drive to spend with them. Now I'm pondering whether or not to sell my 2000 F350 7.3 truck (165,000 miles). I doubt if I'll put another 2,000 miles on it this year.

TC and MPG

I just sold my 5th wheel. With diesel fuel topping $7/gallon here in California, I can't see pulling a trailer at 12mpg. So, the question I have is....what can of MPG can I expect to get from my 2000 F350 7.3 if I decided to get say a 10' camper? With my 27' 5th wheel I averaged 12mpg. Without about 17mpg. 3.73 gears, automatic, 165k miles. Unchipped.

RE: best way to sell

Have sold 3 rvs on Craigslist, I still use CL all the time but also FB Marketplace. Just sold an item on CL in 1 day that was listed on FB for 2 weeks, use every outlet available. BTW latest scam on CL is you get a text asking if its still available, then they ask if they can call you right now, then they ask if you are a real person and if so please verify because there are a lot of scammers out there and want to send you a link. DON'T DO IT! Agreed. Just post your phone number and tell them to call or text only. Scammers will not reply by phone/texting.
