RE: heater mats under tanks

There is nothing to tell you the pads are on. The light being on just tells you power is available to the pads.

RE: Covering up holes in paneling

Buy a flat cold air return grill. They make them in many different sizes. They may only come in white but you could always paint it a color to blend in with the wall.

First time Eternabond user observations

Wow is this stuff sticky! Once it touches anything it is stuck for good. When doing a long seam make sure you get the tape started straight. When pulling off the backing to expose the adhesive make sure to pull it off straight. I tried pulling it off at an angle and the backing tore at a 45 degree angle so now I had a piece that only half stuck. That was not fun trying to fix. Prepped the area with acetone and that worked well. Using a razor blade to cut the tape works best. Rolled with a plastic wall paper roller and that worked good. I know some people here like to follow up with a dab of Doctor at the edges but I see no reason to.

RE: Screw pulled out of exterior fiberglass wall

Just fill the hole with epoxy, coat the screw threads with epoxy, push the screw in and wait 24hrs.

RE: fresh water tank overflow syphoning tank dry

We have a Vista LX 27N. Winnebago assures me there is no pipe on the vent that extends into the tank. If you look at their plumbing diagrams you will see that on the overfill pipe the use 1/2” tubing. Then to prevent siphoning they slip a larger diameter pipe over this and attach it with a screw. The theory is that the space created between these 2 different diameter pipes is supposed to let air in to prevent siphoning. Seems to be hit and miss wether it works or not.

RE: fresh water tank overflow syphoning tank dry

So we have a Winnebago Motorhome purchased last year. Worked great all last year and most of this. My normal routine is to fill fresh water tank till it flows out the vent. It will run out for a bit then stop. Drive to campground and all is fine. Now get to campground back into my spot and water is running out the overflow. How can this be? There is no tube in the tank, just a 90 degree fitting off the top of the tank, a 4” piece of hose that goes horizontal to the tank and another 90 degree fitting with a hose going down under the coach. How can siphoning occur without a hose in the tank? Even if siphoning did start once water sloshed to the other side of the tank the vacuum would be broken. Was at the Winnebago factory yesterday and today and guess what. They don’t understand it either. Yesterday they put a loop of tubing in the vent line that went above the tank then down. Gave me the coach back and said all would be good. No way it could siphon with a loop above the tank. Nope! 70 miles down the road stopping at a wayside got out to look and sure enough it is running out the overflow. Turned around and went back. Today the change the angle of the 4” piece of tubing and raised it about an inch. Drove home and it appears to have worked. Will want to test more before any cheering. What I am still questioning is what part the gravity fill port might have to do with this. Never had one before this one. If that lets air in and siphoning starts it could contribute to the problem. If no gravity fill port, no air could get into the system and eventually there would be negative pressure in the tank stopping any siphoning. The way it appears now the tank is somehow pressurized.

RE: Dead mouse

Get some spray from the pet store that eliminates urine odors.

RE: Shower stall caulking.

More than likely Winnebago used a Silicone caulk for this. You will never get new stuff to stick without removing all of the old stuff. And I mean ever trace. Probably more work than it is worth.

Good Sam credit card fuel limits

So is it a credit card thing or a gas station thing that I can only put in 25 gallons before the pump shuts off? Wells Fargo card does the same thing. Yes I know I can just hang up the pump and start another transaction, just not very convenient. This is at my local Holiday gas station.

RE: SD Online drivers license renewal

Not sure about SD but Minnesota just implemented on line license renewal. You still have to go in to one of the service centers to have your picture taken and do the eye test.

RE: Dometic fridge fins icing

My Norcold automatically goes through a defrost cycle every 48hrs. Very little icing of fins.

RE: Run the USA is what?

We retired a couple of years ago. No problem finding spots Sunday thru Thursday. Much more relaxing without the crowds, screaming kids and barking dogs. We have also found a couple of very nice County parks nearby.

RE: Run the USA is what?

So maybe I’m dating myself but there was a time when an 18’ trailer was considered big! Being in Anoka you are close to many of the bigger dealers. Time to take a look. Take some notes and use your phone for pictures. When we have it narrowed down to a couple of units we would send the salesman away and spend maybe 30 minutes just “living” in them. Best of luck. And our state parks are horrible so everyone should just stay home.

RE: How to identify make / model of toilet

Sometimes you can get away with just re crimping the connection using a pair of side cutters.
