RE: What size?

I like to use a 6 pointed socket. Too easy to round the corners off the Attwood nylon plug when using 12 points.

RE: Burner Tube Air Adjustments on new Dometic Appliances?

In my experience RV manufacturers install regulators without bothering to set them. A manometer is a good tool to own.

RE: Adding XM antenna to avoid camper overhang

Nice. Just a reminder that steel is needed for magnets to work; late model Fords will not work so well. Also, I understand the Ford factory shark fin antenna is dual duty for Sirius and GPS.

RE: Solution to Trash Left Behind!

No 27 eight by ten color glossy photographs with with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one?

RE: Furnace running requires hookup or engine running?

Take the battery to an auto parts store for testing and provide results to owner.

RE: Honda 2200 on front hitch...possible overheating?

One of my off season projects last year was to install a Torklift front hitch for a Torklift carrier with a 2200i. This hitch mounts high. My summer travels took us over mountain passes without issue.

RE: Coleman Mach 8 Cub freezing

Thanks Doug. High fan is a bit noisy, but backing off the temperature has worked for several nights now. The filters are clean. Seems like there should be a way to add a sensor and relay to allow a cooler setting.

RE: Coleman Mach 8 Cub freezing

Thanks Doug. Yes the controls are on the ceiling unit. Any way to add a sensor?

Coleman Mach 8 Cub freezing

We've used the AC more this year, and have had some instances of freeze-up. After some warm nights, I think we've found the temperature setting that works throughout the night. I wonder though, what else might be done. None of the on-line info I've found indicate this unit has a freeze sensor. Is this true, and is there a way to install one aftermarket? Thanks.

RE: Truck Camper Jacks

I rebuilt one that I keep for a spare. Any water that gets inside will sit on the lower bearing until it rusts. The rebuild included drilling holes in the end cap to let the water escape. I don't know if the new vertical motor is better.

RE: Timbrens vs Stableloads

Due to the inboard placement, Timbrens increased sway on my old truck. I corrected it with Energy Suspension devices installed on the overload bump stops. My new truck got upper Stable Loads and upgraded anti-sway bars only.

RE: 3M 5200 Marine Sealant et al

5200 is great stuff. I use it to seal screws and sink drains. Never tried using as a caulk.

RE: Attwod water heater issue

Will you adjust the pressure on the new regulator?

RE: Attwod water heater issue

A manometer is a handy tool to own. I have a feeling many builders just put the plumbing together and never bother adjusting the regulator.

It's not part of the normal 7 pin harness normally used for a TC. You have left and right stop and turns, but no stop by itself.

RE: Timbren SES

I began with Timbrens on my old truck. They helped with sag, but made the sway worse. This is due to the inboard mounting location. I was able to reduce the sway with energy suspension bumpers on the overloads. On my new truck, I went first with TL upper Stableloads and found the sag was acceptable.

RE: you like Torklift StableLoads? / Upper, lower or BOTH?

Thanks-great input. I had a good conversation with TL the other day. I will be going with lower SL’s first and see how that goes. I can add uppers later if needed. Thx to All. You'll be drilling your springs? I'll be curious to hear how that goes.

RE: you like Torklift StableLoads? / Upper, lower or BOTH?

I have them, and they don't engage or otherwise affect the ride when unloaded. If they did, I would contact TL.

RE: I built shelves in a wardrobe for more storage.

So here's my no drill project. The horizontal pieces are intended to keep the supports pressed into the corners to prevent the whole thing from bouncing up. Thanks for the bullnose edge idea. height=700 width=500

RE: I built shelves in a wardrobe for more storage.

I like the bullnose front edge, and used the idea. Helps hide my ragged saw cut on the shelf. Project is going well and should be finished when I get a few more hours to work on it.
