RE: Tail light Sealant

I'm not familiar with Big Stretch sealant. OSI Quad is uv-resistant. It is used around doors, windows and trim on houses and comes in colors. Sticks to pretty much most surfaces. I don't think bathroom caulk is UV resistant.

RE: Tail light Sealant

You can also use OSI Quad it will maintain a rubbery consistency. It is composed of elastomeric polymers and high quality synthetic resins. This product offers the superior adhesion characteristics and unmatched elasticity found in high performance sealants. It yields a tough, rubbery seal which resists outdoor weather-related elements.

RE: Dehumidifier?

Thanks guys. We open the vents when we take a shower or cooking, but still, every morning all windows covered with water. About dew point, does it mean the windows inside should be about 46-50F, right? Usually we keep the temperature inside about 70F. I see in general the compressor dehumidifier are more louder than desiccant, no? The dew point varies. It is related to the temperature and the amount of humidity in the air at that temperature. As far as noise it is less than a small window air conditioner running on low.

RE: Proflex?

Proflex okay, but non self leveling Dicor or better yet OSI Quad (also available in colors) is better. It is used on houses and buildings for sealing around doors and windows. OSI Quad can also be used around trailer windows, doors and other side wall penetrations after using butyl tape. It is a polyurethane caulk that seals and stays stretchy and rubbery after curing.

RE: Dehumidifier?

The dehumidifier that you linked is only rated for 18 ounces per day. You'll need something more along the lines of 25 pints per day and that may only put a dent in it with a large family. An individual adult can exhale three pints of water while they sleep, part of the reason why you are thirsty when you wake up. Then there's showering and cooking which releases moisture into the air. I lived alone in my 28ft travel trailer for a while, using a 25 pint per day unit that I had to run continuously throughout winter. I showered once a day while running the ceiling vent and only used the microwave. The dehumidifier was barely adequate. You might want to start looking at these dehumidifiers.

RE: Insect prevention in black tank

Sheesh, all these people dumping bleach and chemicals in the tanks... you do realize that all has to go to a water treatment plant eventually, right? I've never used chemicals. Straight water has always done the trick for us. Never had sewer flies but we never leave valves open, not even the grey. So, instead of complaining about people using bleach and chemicals to kill bugs in their black tank do you have any constructive suggestions on how they get rid of them?

RE: Air Admittance Valve

Cut the pipe below the AAV. Remove the pipe stub with the AAV. Replace the AAV on the pipe stub. Reinstall the pipe stub with new AAV using a Fernco fitting.

RE: How big of a window air conditioner will a Honda 2000 run?

A 6000 BTU A/C will normally pull 400 - 500 watts.

RE: Places to fill with fresh water and clever ways to fill ..

Just a suggestion: install a large tank, large enough you can go for a week on one fill, then spend one night a week in a campground where you can refill it and dump holding tanks. I have a 30 gallon tank so a typical campground fee would cost me about a $1/gallon. Not only is that steep but that would only work if there is a campground available. Wow $1/gal just for water. How much do they charge for dumping tanks, electricity, restrooms, camp site, etc.

RE: Where is fuel leak on Onan Diesel Generator

If the RV came with the generator installed as original equipment it probably draws fuel from the RV fuel tank.

RE: Places to fill with fresh water and clever ways to fill ..

Bob Wells video from his YouTube channel CheapRVliving How a nomad gets water on the road. I plan to supplement finding water by catching rain water and melting snow. I have caught rain water off of my awning and tarps to use to wash with or rinse off gear. In the future I will have a pump with a trash filter and carbon filter to pump rain water or melted snow into a water tank where I can treat it and then pump it to or gravity fill my fresh water tank.

RE: Living full time on my land in Plumas or Lassen County

You might look at BLM land and National Forest Land in and around the 2 counties to use to rotate with your property stays. There are usually 14 day limits and distance between locations. It might require moving every 2 weeks, but can help stretch out your 4 month limit at your property. For lack of electricity you could invest in solar on your trailer. It can help you stay under the radar with the county while staying on your own property. As soon as you add electric, septic or sewage connection, well or city water, you gotta get those pesky permits and bills that draw attention to what you are doing.

RE: Need a new TV antenna

I haven't torn into it yet, but it looks like the damaged cable may just connect to the mast base with a boot covering it. Is that correct? Is it just a plain old RG59 cable? My RV is 2004 vintage. Could also be RG6 if trailer is wired for Satellite. RG6 will work for cable or tv antenna. RG6 copper center wire is thicker and stiffer than RG59. I wired both satellite and roof top tv antennae in my fathers house and the house across the street I used to live in, all with RG6. Both dishes had dual LNB. Bought a 500 foot spool of RG6 cable back then for $50.

RE: propane tank storage in truck bed

I packed a 20 or 30 lb cylinder between coolers or surrounded them with gas cans or other gear. Sometimes I run a cable lock through the gas can and cylinder carry handles and pad lock them to my truck rack. For the 6 lb and 11 lb cylinders, i usually lay both against the front of the wheel wells in the truck bed and pack other things around and on top of them. Then I use a bungee net over top everything in the bed.

RE: Clam Shell pop up screen room

The NRS straps Sjm9911 linked are great. I have them in 3,4,6,9,12 & 15 foot lengths. I used 1- 15 footer and 1- 9 footer to lash my 16 ft canoe to my truck rack. I also used the shorter ones to secure pipe and lumber to the rack.

RE: Black walnut issue

Pitch thats hard to believe. I sold the ones that used to line my driveway for far more than that, they even dug up the roots claimed they sold them to Germany to make pipes. You look the right place you sure can sell them and they do the cutting Roots are also used to make gun stocks.
