RE: water tank help

That's all the sensor is ... the device that attaches to the studs reads resistance / conductivity and turns the full, 3/4, 1/2 and 1/4 lights on. You could also look at upgrading to the Seelevel II system, which attaches via a sensor strip to the outside of the tank and is more precise. thank you Gordon, so to clarify, do i need actual sensors which attach? or just a wire and bolt to the female thread? even o look at sensors on line i see a sensor and rubber grommet etc as if i was going to drill a new hole and add that. can you point me to a photo of what i might need? thank you The nails you spotted are the sensors. There the bottom one is probably ground and the others are the various levels. The SeeLevel system just attaches to the side of the tank like a big sticker and does not use the original sensors. There are no holes drilled in the tank with the SeeLevel sensor.

RE: Air Conditioning condensation

It's kind of ghetto, but you could put a bead of non leveling Dicor down the roof and over to a corner. That would at least channel the water away from the awning. And unless you're up on the roof you would never see it.

RE: Rewiring the brakes

Unfortunately it's difficult to say how hard they would be to replace. I suppose if the underbelly is exposed they wouldn't be too tough. But if it's closed in you'll have a bit more of a challenge. How was that for a fairly useless answer. :B

RE: Electrical issues

Is there a GFCI in the outside outlet to plug things into when under the awning? Maybe that one is tripped.

RE: Parking on area with dirt/grass stability

I camp almost exclusively out on the sand in the desert. Based on your description I can't imagine anything snapping. But just to go there even though you didn't ask here's what I do. Before you disconnect the trailer level it side to side. I use the plastic lego blocks, many people use pieces of wood. Chock the wheels using a minimum of 4 chocks so neither side and roll forward or backward. Put something down on the ground for the trailer jack to sit on and distribute the weight. (I crib 4x4's for this) Using the tongue jack level the trailer front to back. Now drop the stabilizers down to help remove some of the wiggle. I typically crank down until the jack contacts the ground or the piece of wood and then give about 1/4 additional turn. If the ground is really soft I might give a half turn. Personally I use pieces of 4x4 lumber about a foot long to put under the tongue jack and under the stabilizer jacks. The idea is to fill the open space between the jack foot and the ground so you don't have to crank the jack down very far. The stacking of wood will also help make the trailer more stable than just the jack cranked all the way to the ground. You want to use cribbing when you stack the wood under the jacks. Place two pieces of lumber in one direction like north/south (leave a gap between the two pieces). Then stack the next layer on top perpendicular (East West) Keep alternating layers N/S, E/W until you get the height you desire. I always end up with a single 4x4 across the center of the cribbing for the jack to contact. Then crank the jack down and add 1/4 to 1/2 turn and call it good. Later that night or the next morning make sure your jacks are still tight as the ground can settle.

RE: Eu2000i muffler cleaning ideas?

If still plugged let it dry really well and then run it through a cycle of a self cleaning oven. It might burn it off.

RE: A Cautionary Tale: Wired Rear Camera on a 2015 Majestic 28A

Great write up. wouldn't it be nice if the manufacturer left a channel or two to run wires through?

RE: 2020 Jayco 36FTBS grey water sewer smell in trailer

Yep look under the sinks and you'll spot a vertical stub sticking up from the drain pipe just after the P trap. Unscrew the valve by hand and replace it. There are better ones, but the one you have is probably $7 from Home Depot. Link

RE: Why remove dinette booth and replace with table and chairs

Personally I like my dinette. The instances I've seen of people replacing them is because they are uncomfortable? As far as new cushions. If the fabric is acceptable, you might look into an upholstery shop just replacing the foam with something better, maybe firmer.

RE: heated mattress on forest river flagstaff

What would prevent you from swapping out the mattress? Unless the mattress is too big to get through the trailer door I see no reason why you couldn't pull the original off and put your preferred mattress on.

RE: Worn inside Tires

Yes not enough camber. Unfortunately this is probably from a bent axle. You may find a truck shop for big rigs to straighten it. But it would probably be cheaper to just replace the axle.

RE: How to empty fresh water tank without pump?

Sorry I can't help but there should be a drain somewhere near the tank. As far as the pump running but no water, Try unscrewing the aerator off the end of the faucet. It might be plugged up with old construction debris. Also see if the winterizing valve is set to pull antifreeze out of a jug. That will keep the pump from pulling out of the tank.

RE: Broken Window

Been there 2 times with a very similar window on my TT. Number one thing to do right now is to get a roll of tape (Blue masking or clear box tape) and carefully tape up as much as you can to keep the broken glass in place before it all falls out and makes a huge mess. Once taped up take the one screw out and take the window to a glass shop that does windows and doors and such. They will measure and have the replacement cut and tempered and replaced in your existing frame. One caveat that I did not know and learned the hard way. Keep the replacement glass standing vertical like it sits when installed in the trailer. If you lay it down flat it might break overnight. Thanks, already used blue painters tape to tape the whole window. Good to go there. Good tip on transporting it back in the vertical position, I wouldn't have thought about that. Found a local glass company, she doesn't carry tinted tempered but can get it and said she would rig me up with a temporary solution until she got it. Thanks for all the input!! Yes they don't carry tempered glass because they can't cut it once tempered. They send the measurements out to their supplier where it is cut first, then tempered and then sent back to them to be installed in the frame. She should be able to measure the current frame and then work with you to decide the the desired tinting before sending the order to her supplier. One other thing that might help you at the campground that helped at my storage lot. I knew the manager would claim I signed a waiver against damage while stored. And yep as soon as I mentioned the break and the $200 to fix it he started down that path. So I calmly stated I knew there was a damage waiver and I was not asking him to pay for the repair. But I did ask if he could meet me in the middle with maybe a rent reduction for a few months. At that he perked and readily agreed to temporarily cut the rent in half for the next few months to help with the bill. You never know sometimes being creative can help.

RE: Need damage advice

True they might deny the claim, but you won't know until you try.

RE: "My Forums" link takes forever

It's slow for me on the Goodsamclub portal. Well actually lately it's been fine. But inn the past it's been slow. I usually do a right click on "My Forums" and then select "open in new tab". I then go back to browsing the forums until the link opens.

RE: "Old Tires"

I'm not saying the guy is right, but he probably has seen 20 year old tires still going. But that doesn't mean it's a good idea to run them that old. He might also have beet thinking about truck tires. While still not advisable to run that long. They definitely seem to be built a lot tougher than trailer tires.

RE: Rodents coming in through engine compartment.....

Unfortunately the only thing that is going to work is to have the holes resealed. The last shop should have embedded wire mesh into the spray foam. Without the wire mesh the rodents can just chew through again. You might be able to find a person who will spend time crawling around under the rig looking for the holes and patch from the outside.

RE: Simple extension cord

It should be as simple as an extension cord plugged into an outlet in the house. At the RV end use a 15 amp to 30 amp adapter. If you have a 50 amp rig plug a 50 to 30 amp adapter in. Turn off the AC.

RE: Our Zion National park trip

Looks like an awesome trip. I laughed at your daughter putting her head down on her handlebars. Kids are always fining inventive ways to relax. :)
