RE: Propane tank locks for my TT

I flattened one ear of the stock wingnut and drilled a hole in it and the regulator bracket.

RE: Garmin GPS

I have the smaller screen RV660. If you use the RV mode you can set the rig height and it will alert you to low bridges.

RE: Portable Macertator

I made macerator hoses from 3/4" pond or water feature hose. Lightweight, and it coils easily for storage.

RE: ? "Easy" Toilet Blade Seal Replacement?

Two bolts and a water connection, and the toilet comes off.

RE: How fuel stabilizers work...or not

I use E0 gas and drain the tank and carb at the end of the season. No issues with any of my small engines. My son in law doesn't take those precautions and about every other year I'm cleaning out a carb for him.

RE: Shurflo Water Accumulator tank

I have a 2-gallon residential tank that's been in 3 trailers so far.

RE: Cleaning out black tank for winter

Buy a wand or build your own, there are plenty of videos online. I swear by my homemade wand. I have a clear elbow and even after using the on-board flush I get a lot more "stuff" out using the wand.

RE: Schwintek slide system.

Both the slides we have use the Schwintek system. Interestingly, on the next model year the manufacturer went to a Lippert system on the large slide. And our large slide has always run slow.

TST 507 and I didn't need the booster. BTW - there are several active Grand Design and Grand Design Imagine FB pages.

RE: Flojet Water Pump hammering

How far are you opening the faucet? Does it do it with a faucet wide open? Sounds like the pump flow capacity is exceeding the rate of discharge from the faucet. That pump has a 4.5 GPM capacity and will definately short cycle when using the shower. Adding an accumulator will solve that problem. Yes, I have a 2 gallon residential expansion tank. It stops the short cycling, holds enough for a few nightly potty runs w/o the pump, and as a bonus it cut down the annoying burst of hot water when taking a Navy shower.

RE: Winterizing queston

You could blow air through the winterizing line but I'd also unscrew the pump strainer and empty it.

RE: Bent Axle, or spindle welded on crooked?

I had a bent axle on our last trailer. Fortunately there's a very good truck frame shop near me and they were able to straighten it and tweak the rest of the wheels for a true 4-wheel alignment.

RE: RV sale pending, but we found evidence of mice...

We had 2 mice in a campground this year. I didn't want to use poison and have them die in an inaccessible place so I used the old fashioned spring traps.

RE: toilet seal

Recently had the same problem with mine. Thetford Aqua Magic II. Had to turn off water, disconnect lines, remove toilet from floor flange. Flip toilet upside down, separate toilet in the middle and replace seal. Reverse steps. If you get the seal kit, also replace the floor seal at the same time. Depends on the model. On my Dometic with the China bowl, you just hold the pedal down to move the ball over and reach in and pull the seal out of the groove. Takes about 20 seconds if you're very slow. Other models might require some disassembly. Why did you have to remove it from the flange? I thought you could separate it while still bolted down. And I watched one video where no disassembly was required to replace the seal.

RE: Converter charger upgrade

I know PD is the big favorite but I have an IOTA-55 deck mount converter to suppliment the factory WFCO. It's mounted in the pass through and feeds dual 6V batteries. The WFCO is turned off at its breaker and is only used as an AC - DC distribution center.

RE: Anyone towing a TT with new Silverado 1500, 3.0L diesel?

Curious as to what the payload is on a 3.0.

RE: Servicing Wheel Bearings

The older cars had serviceable wheel bearings same as a trailer. I used to repack mine at 30K intervals.

RE: To Upgrade TV or Not

Switching to "E" rated tires on my F150 took out the squishy - squirmy feeling.
mbopp 09/21/20 07:56am Towing

I do not know what the difference is between Ford's standard and max tow package; but my choice would be max tow with 3:55, especially with that engine. I had a F150 with the standard tow package - get the max tow package.
