RE: Getting the wrinkles out

I have removed as most of the wall paper in my older rig and painted the walls a basic white. Looks much newer and an easy fix for me I did that on a trailer a few years ago. That was a lot of work. I refinished the whole interior, including cabinets, with oil based paint. Super nice, but time consuming. Thanks.

RE: low coolant / add water?

The dude lives in SoCal. Even if the tank was empty, it won't freeze at 60*.

Getting the wrinkles out

How does one get the wrinkles out of the paper/vinyl that is applied over the luan in the interior walls of 99% of RV's? I know it is caused by moisture. I have no leaks, never have. The cause is more than likely age (1999) and a few high humid days here and there (SoCal). I just want to hear from those that have successfully eliminated or decreased the wrinkles and what those methods were they used. This is the only flaw I have in, on or around my RV. I'm now living in NoCal, where the humidity is a little greater, but nothing like Texas or Florida (i.e....we have rain up here). I anxiously await your replies.

RE: RV parked for a lengthy period

Maybe the guys at a RV dealer would know more? They have hundreds of RV's that sit for a year, then someone comes a long and buys them. All they do is recharge the battery (sometimes replace it).

RE: Roof type - leaks

I loved the aluminum roof on my 37' motor-home. Never had to do anything to it. Reflected heat a lot better than a rubber roof too. I wish I had an aluminum roof on my present 5th wheel. I wouldn't have had to re-coat it this last spring.

RE: Problem with B&W Companion unhooking from hitch

That happens to me often. It's frustrating, like getting stuck in mud, but you just have to work through it.

RE: Water/snow weight concerns

64 pounds per cubic foot.........hell, I can stand in one place on the roof and it would be 220 pounds per cubic foot. Snow only weights about 20 pounds per cubic foot.

RE: Spare Tire Bracket - broken - Jayco 1206

If somebody welded it once, somebody can weld again That's what I did to mine when I found cracks. I just took it in the garage and fired up the arc welder. Three minutes later, it was all back together, better than new.

RE: Best and worst routes across the Mountains ?

Pull that radiator and have it boiled out. Replace the hoses and belt, including the trans cooler hoses. If you have the dough, think about putting a disc brake conversion on that beast. Have the heater core looked at too.

RE: sears 3000 inverter

Find a used Honda or Yamaha. You'll be much happier in 5 years.

RE: Oil change + replace battery, which comes first ?

Your oil will be fine. Look at the cars that sit on dealer lots for a year or two. You live in SoCal, so there in no need what-so-ever to worry about the high humidity problems the south have with water/oil. Get yourself a small solar charger. Your batteries will last a lot longer if they stay topped off.

RE: Tire/wheel change on the road

LOL. I doubt you'll bust a lugnut loose with anything less than a 36v cordless impact. The impact is a 1/2” drive with 500-600 ft lbs. It’ll break loose wheel lugs no problem. That's amazing. 700ftlbs.

RE: Mattress Reccomendations

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B079YYQNDB/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1&fpw=alm I put one of the above in our 5th wheel. We added a WalMart 2" foam topper right before our last extended trip. Neither of us wanted to get out of bed, it was so comfortable.

RE: Septic Holding Tank that's portable?

30'? Just run your sewage hose to it. Or, get some 3" ABS pipe and slap it together (don't even need glue).

RE: Towing in the mountains: the routes near big bear lake

Go up the 38. 39ft is pretty long and 18 has hairpin turns. You'll be taking up a couple a lanes on a few turns. Besides that, you can stop for breakfast in BB....and enjoy the lake view. A lot of 38 is 55mph. That's not so with route 18.

RE: Complaints about Cost of Mhs vs Motels

Well In another place (Political) I often yammer about folks who never look at the OTHER SIDE of the Ledger. applies here too but not polically. When you travel by RV.. First Campgrounds range from around 30-40/night to OUCH. Hotels and motels... About the same price range only the OUCH is OUCH!!!!. And you still have a house you are paying for back "home" (the other side of the ledger) RV FUll time you don;t' have the house. With memberships I paid 90/month during most of the summer to park my RV (Full time) and around 200-250 per MONTH in the winter. That included Water, Sewer and Electric (Plus over the air TV) Since moving into an apartment my first Gas/Electrc bill is 120 bucks. They house ate over 200/month in Gas and electric. Our Electric Bill runs $400.00-$550.00 a month. You REALLY need solar. My electric company OWES me $200 for this year. I haven't paid for electricity for over 7 years. My house is all electric....3,000sqft. I live in Northern California, not SoCal.
