RE: Insulating exposed tanks

Reflectix is the wrong product. If you read the manufacturers documentation it's best at reflecting, not insulating. It is only R-1 I would consider either dry camping or buy a more suitable RV. If you must use what you have, build a box from foam board to encase the tanks. This. Reflectix is for heat and wont do anything for cold.

RE: Water line burst

Get a high flow regulator instead of the cheapo ones. Bingo - that's all it takes. Just make sure it says "high flow" and you'll have all the volume you need.

RE: Broken key, locked out of TT, no spare :(

If you break a window, break the one in the door. They're cheap at less than $35 and available at RV parts places.

RE: WA 20 or US 2 across the Cascades summer 2020?

WA 20 usually closes around Thanksgiving (depending on snow fall) and US 2 is open year-round but sometimes has temporary closures do to snow removal or avalanche control. These usually only last a few hours but can last a day or two. Both of these routes are gorgeous. We make the tirp over US2 many times every year. I can't choose just one! Pick the one that takes you the route that sounds best and you'll be fine. US2 is shorter but WA20 is more scenic. If you go WA20, you have to stop in Winthrop for icecream!

RE: Strange house battery issue

You would have a 63XX Magtek converter and it's shot by now. I suggest you get a new PDI9260 converter from They will also have videos on how to change it out. The new one will have multiple stages and work better than the old one ever did! Unless your battery(s) are fairly new, plan on replacing them too as the discharged condition will have taken its toll on them.

RE: battery charging

13.2~13.3 is good forever. You can forget about it! I will check my water levels in the spring and very little, if any, will be needed. S

That would be nice to have. I don't refill but I've had them leak after a single use. Found some here: Amazon has them too.

That I don't listen to her, and some other sh!t she was rambling on about..... :B:B:B Only two things? You're doing great!! S

RE: Hearing problem need wireless mic and ear piece

I'm getting a bad case of CHS (cant hear s...) and FWIW, my Dr. told me that (real) hearing aids are going to become an over the counter item in the future and that do so shold cause the prices to come down. I'm hoping I can hold out that long. That is not true for REAL hearing aids. That is just for amplifiers. My hearing cuts off at the higher end of frequency's. I can stand right in front of our microwave without my hearing aids and not here the timer beeper which is 1 foot from my face. but I can hear the pile driver 2 miles away without them. I forget the frequency level that my hearing drops off. That is what causes people to not here some words being spoken. or hear some letters pronounced. It's not about the volume it's about what frequency you are not hearing. Only a hearing test can show this and no over the counter can fix it. Real hearing aids can amplify the higher end and cut down or out the lower end. Just like an equalizer on a stero. The more tracks the higher the cost. Forget about those $800 for two you see in the newspaper. I am on my 3rd set in 20 years at $1800.00 ea.The next step in hearing aids is gonna be blue tooth/GPS. Doc says I will be able to call him in MA from FL and he will be able to adjust my hearing aides from his computer. You didn't read my post closely enough. I didn't say they are available. I said my Dr. indicated they will be available - as in they aren't yet. Also, I'm not talking about the toy things sold on TV and elsewhere. I am talking about real, programable hearing aids. There is no reason they can't be sold in stores. Qualified professionals can test people and set up the new aids. I've been dealing with hearing aids for my disabled son for the last 30 years so I'm very familiear with them. I just paid $2K for his present set. They're a rip off. There isn't $50 worth of electronics in them.

RE: Remembrance Day

Thanks to all who served. The state of many of our World War memorials is deplorable. Many sit forgotten and neglected (Like Oahu's Natatorium). If you get a chance, please support them.

RE: allison mt643 to allison2000 series swap

TDR I don't know if they can help with that sort of thing though. Might try the "Conversions" forum there.

RE: Signing a power of attorney for bank when selling your RV

No way I would do that and it isn't needed. Something smells there.

Have you tried just tightening them?

RE: Electronic failures, PCB repairs.

Ditto what ScottG said. I'm an EE as well. What frustrates me to no end is when relatively simple circuit boards are potted (filled/covered) with epoxy so they can't be worked on. But if your board has everything accessible, then that makes it much more likely to be repairable. After solder joints, the next common culprit is either bad connectors (or broken wires at the connector) or relays which no longer work. ~Rick And we shouldnt forget those pesky solder balls! Of course they usually show up pretty quick. Scott

RE: Installing Laminate flooring

Let it float and don't use glue. In something as small as an RV, you don't need to leave as large of a gap around the edge but I would still leave at least 1/8~3/16". Also, if it's snap together type, don't pound them together. Only use enough force to make them click and no more. Otherwise you will end up with tiny raised edges that look terrible in the sun. I have seen the results of a floor not having enough room to expand and it's amazing. The middle of the floor will rise up like a giant blister. It can move furntiure and people standing on it as it expands. I've fixed bad installs but it's a pain. You don't want to make any mistakes or do anything other than what the manufacturers suggests.

RE: 2020 Silverado 1500 Duramax and the Ike

I know they're trying to do these test equally between all makes but it would have been interesting to see what happens if he manually downshifted - if that's posssible.

RE: Rear Hitch Bike Rack for Travel Trailer

I have destroyed two bike carriers and tore one bumper (welded on) nearly off. The one bike carrier that is actually for RV use is the Swagman and it has held up great. You'll want to make sure your bumper is up to the task and probably reinforce it.
