RE: AC leak, help!

Water intrusion associated with air conditioners is often associated with clogged drip holes from the evaporator coils - that would be my first step. Then check the air conditioner gasket ... often minor tightening of the 4 bolts can resolve problem .... sometimes you have to replace gasket.

RE: Decals cracking

Seven to ten years is about it for graphics no matter what you do. My rigs 30 yrs old and with a few minor exception the graphics are OK. I used an acrylic finish. How long they last may depend on how they are protected, where you live (ie how much exposure to baking sun).

RE: water damaged floor, Need guidance...

I don't own your type rig .... but when I installed new flooring I discovered that my furniture was bolted to the floor - that required me to have someone under the rig to hold the bolt why I unscrewed. May not be the same for your rig but thought this might help. Good luck.

RE: Gas leak on Atwood 8531-I’ve dclp

Might consider taking the RV into commercial propane dealer - have them fill your tank and ask them to check for leaks. In my area they would find/fix leaks for free.

RE: bubble on EPDM roof by the seam

Leave it alone. Never cut a perfectly good roof covering that is not leaking. Often times those bubbles come and go with temperature changes. X2. If you have cut it then you should consider a small Eternabond patch.

RE: roof joint sealing

Dicor should work fine - for extra protection consider using Eternabond but that will require you to do the necessary prep work b4 applying.

RE: LCI power steps won't shut off

Over the years when my steps act like they are possessed it always turns out to be low battery or loose/bad ground.

RE: roof joint sealing

Your pics don't show up. Check out the Forum Posting Help and Support section at the top right of the page - it should have some info on how to post pictures.

RE: Bad Water Smell

When I sanitize I include the hot water tank - usually let the bleachy water sit overnight.

RE: Advice needed -90s Tioga

“Suggest you call a Ford dealer to talk about the air condition issue ” Who at any Ford dealer is going to know anything about a 1992 motorhome with a Ford chassis? It’s 28 years old! Believe it or not - air conditioning conversion issues are well know and my Ford dealer gave me a quote within a few minutes when I inquired a couple yrs ago. BTW ... my rigs a yr older than OP.

RE: Sidewall has delaminated near the top -- DIY Repair ???

The fix depends on what caused the delam (sometimes the glue separates because of sun etc .. but usually water), where the delam is located, how big the delam, and how extensive the unseen damage. A picture would really help.

RE: Campground with RV sites and cabins

In my area many of the State campgrounds have "yurts" and those sites are generally large enough to park RV ... something like that would work well for your situation. Maybe TX has something similar?

RE: Jury Duty

As others have said - depends on where you live. Also depends on whether it's a local or federal court. In my neck of the woods the locals are easy going but the Feds are a different matter - hard to even get someone to answer the phone and have reputation for issuing bench warrants.

RE: Replacing two 6 volt house batteries with one 12 volt

An inexpensive Costco group 24 battery would do fine - about $60.

RE: How often and how to clean black tank

I have tried various methods over the yrs - and assuming you have tried the basics (water/soap etc) have found that using a bit of bleach on occasion works as good as anything. The smell comes from bacteria and bleach kills that. Many people recommend Happy Campers which I recently purchased but haven't used yet. BTW - every few years I use a septic cleaner in my black water tank (let it set for a week) which is suppose to super clean the tank - that may insure you black water tank works fine but it's not a cure all for odors.

RE: 12 volt power tripped

Are you referring to a std 12 volt auto reset breaker? Some come with button to push and some don't. If so - I would start with replacing the breaker (inexpensive) which would at least rule out the basics.

RE: Will honda 2000 start a 15k BTU air conditioner?

Generator cost more than an RV AC unit ... I would first ask if 13.5 AC can be started with your current generator. Just my 02.

RE: Advice needed -90s Tioga

92 Tioga likely didn't have telescoping steering column ... but the steering wheel can be adjusted. Suggest you call a Ford dealer to talk about the air condition issue and ask them whether burning a quart of oil every 1,000 miles or so is OK. As others have suggested the price seems high - especially for an older RV that has issues.

RE: 32 Foot Class A vs 32 Foot Class C

Class A will likely have more storage and tow capacity. Class C of that length will likely be close to the max on weight and have limited tow capacity. I own a 29 ft class C and it works for me ... but if I had to do it over again I would have bought a Class A.

RE: Air Conditioners for a 1989 Ford Jamboree

As others have said - dash air is totally separate from overhead air unit. The dash air repair would require conversion - expensive at Ford dealer. A phone call to Ford dealer should give you better info. The overhead unit is likely cheaper fix - in many cases you just need to replace the upper portion of the air conditioner ... those sell for about $500? Replacement of the upper isn't very hard but will require you to be capable of heavy lifting .. you will also need to replace the gasket which is inexpensive. I own a 91 and my dash air went out many yrs ago ... but I live in NW and rarely need dash air ... when I travel to warm areas I run the overhead air using the onboard generator.
