RE: TFT Code for ScanGauge 2 ??

When I was having difficulty getting my Ford V-10 class C to read the trans temps after trying all the manual suggestions, I called Scan-Gage and they explained what I had missed. That made it work, so might want to just call them.

RE: Patching Coroplast

I had cut the bottom of my 5th at least 4 times when doing work up under the trailer for slide out motors, plumbing and some electrical. Went to the Lowe's and bought 2x1 6ft wood and cut it to lay on each side of the cut out overlapping the edge by 1 inch. Screwed that wood to the uncut coreplast kleaving the 1 inch over the hole. Put the coreplast up and screwed that to the wood. Was able to get back uop into the bottom by removing the screws when needed. Never had it fail and fall down.

RE: Tire valve Stems

All the truck tire shop did on my last big truck was replace the rubber gaskets used on the metal stems, not replacing the complete stem. That seems to me not a needed thing to do, but don't know for sure. I would ask why and maybe even ask other truck tire shops the reason for replacement.

RE: Residential Refrigerator Issue

Having had both, the rv and the residential, no way would I ever go back if I had to pull the rv one out. More useful room, better temp control and overall nicer appearance in our rig.

RE: Shower Door

We removed the small entry sliding glass door in a Class C we had and tried the shower curtain for a while. Then found this company and bought the retractable shower door. WOW, easy to install, worked great and we were very pleased with the look and operation. Give this company a look sliding door

RE: 5 Star Tune

I had a 2018 34 ft Holiday Rambler that I towed a 2015 Cadillac SRX with. I added the 5 Star tune and it made the V-10 "wake up" and seemed to acclerate and shift better. Never saw any fuel mileage increase, but liked driving the rig more so probably used the acclerator pedal more? Was going to sell the rig so removed the 5 Star and had forgot how dull it was without. Ended up selling to a relative so put the 5 Star back in and showed the new buyer the difference, he said LEAVE IT hooked up!! No comparrison in with and without.

RE: Removing old sealant from fiberglass roof

Plastic scraper with a hair dryer. Or, a heat gun on low. This is how I did it a couple of years ago. Was a slow process, but once you get started should not take more than 1 hour, at least that was how it went for me.

RE: How to clean water stains on ceiling fabric

I'm terribly sorry for posting here but I have a similar problem and I'm wondering if you managed to fix this problem Which problem? the loose a/c unit or the stained ceiling? yes to both, took the grill down from inside the rv and tightened the 4 lag screws holding the roof unit to the rv. That stopped the water leak when driving in the rain. Then as above stated, Folex and carpet cleaner with the carpet cleaner machine.

RE: Cleaning the carpet?

I have used Folex purchased at Home Depot, spray on a micro fiber and rub that on the dirty areas of the carpet. Really bad spot, spray directly on the spot, use a dry micro fiber cloth laid on the spot and use my foot with a shoe to pressure blot the area. Then vacuum, Folex worked really well on the ceiling areas where water leaked in at the a/c unit.

RE: Broken Leaf Springs

I lived and traveled full time 8 years in a 36 ft 5th wheel and heard stories of others being stuck somewhere with a broken spring. I purchased 1 spring that was made for my trailer and carried it for 7 years, never needing it. But it was there if and when needed. I let it go when I sold the trailer and let the new owner know it was just there "in case" he ever needed it. Most folks were not able to move the trailer very far when they snapped their spring without doing damage to the tire or bottom covering. It didn't take up much room and was a cheap insurance to allow us to get back on the road quickly if need be.

RE: Is there any difference in DRIVING a gas class A vs diesel?

I recently switched from a gas Ford powered 34 ft MH to a rear diesel 34 ft and it is night and day different in quiet, comfort and handeling. I find the ride and braking so much better and seems to pull my towed car easier too. It did cost more to upgrade, but we did upgrade from the gas. You have to actually get behind the wheel of a diesel and try for yourself to see if it is what you desire. One drive for us sold us that quick.

RE: Gray tank cleaner

I used the Flush King to back flush the gray tank system. Always pulled things out of that tank without adding anything to the system. have a clear down spout to let me see what was coming out. Did it about 2-3 times a year.

So sorry to hear we lost a fellow traveler. He was always helpful in his posts and will be missed.

RE: Anyone utilize Camping World consignment?

I can not believe that they would put any effort into trying to sell your unit used when they have a whole lot of new units they can sell. DTANK'S idea is a good one and wish you the best in selling your rig.
