RE: good Sam VS AARP.

So I guess I'll discount all the opinions based on politics. You don't like a group fine. That has nothing to do with whether they're a good deal, and actually prevents you from knowing either way. Very wise.

RE: Sewer smell strong in trailer when dumping??

Maybe it's the grey you smell. If the roof vents are installed wrong or blocked for any reason, dumping will pull water out of the traps and it can smell. Grey can smell worse than black.

RE: What would cause this on a slide out?

The lower, front right side has hit something. Could have tweaked all kinds of stuff. I would pass on that unit. BTW, the only slides that sometimes need bars are hydraulic.

RE: Warning! Publci Toilet Hygene

We carry a package of ars gaskets in the rig and use them.

RE: New GFI Outlet Will Not Reset

For some strange reason, the manufacturers of GFCI swapped the "line" and "load" connections from top to bottom a few years back. So if you hook up the new one exaclty the same as an old one, it would be backwards and dead. Might verify the connections.

RE: GM eBoost Technology

It's about time. Hope this comes to fruition. Problem is, people don't want to pay for anything that isn't superficial. It needs to be phased in like antilock brakes were.

RE: New Ford 7.3 Gas

I think it could be a great combination but I would give any new engine a couple of years of evolution before buying.

RE: Anyone use rv share?

If you're not the type that is real picky about your things (not an insult) then by all means, go for it. I could never do it. I take pride in our RV's looking like new up to the day we sell them. You can't expect anyone else to care for your stuff and they'll beat the krap out of it. If you move forward, don't forget to update your ins.

RE: lino cracked after cold spell

It's normal to only adhere it around the edges. I suspect RV's just use the outer walls to hold it in place. Cracking happens all the time. My neighbor had his crack when the temps were in the teens a few years ago. I keep mine heated to just above freezing to combat this. Maybe Ins. will cover. :( EDIT: I tore my floor by accident and was able to piece it back together and use glue (Titebond, a PVA type glue was suggested by flooring mfr) to hold it down. You cant even find the spot I fixed. Might try that.

RE: firewall, black expanding foam

Black will burn. You can use fire-block foam which will even take a direct flame. OTOH, even the black or white "Stuff" is good for around 240 degrees and I doubt it will see those kinds of heat.

RE: Low clearance - cut this off?

Cutting will help your ground clearance issue but not solve it. Cutting it solved the same problem for me!

RE: Smart Light Bulbs

My neighbor has those for his porch lights. Yes, if the power gets interupted they go nuts and need reprogramming. In his case he was on vacation in Hi when someone turned the light switch off and back on. The lights flashed for 2 days until he got home. :B

RE: Question on inner bearing grease seals

Some seals are designed to be used with the EZ lube or in the case of marine stuff "Bearing buddys" style grease system and are built to take the pressure (in theory..) created during the greasing process. Those seals cost more. If you don't use that "feature" then the cheaper, more common seals work fine for RV's but for a boat trailer, I'd get the better ones becasue they have a tighter seal. Scott

RE: Low clearance - cut this off?

I cut off several inches on a couple of those, including the one I've been using for more than ten years. No problems what so ever.

RE: Jump Start Question

Just replaced the 10 y/o batterys in my Dodge. They still worked but didn't like sitting in the cold very long. I've been driving for about 43 years. In that time I have had batterys suddenly short internally on 2 occasionions in various cars. Both times they could not be jump started. The shorted battery was just too much of a load. It kinda sounds like that's what happeded to you but that's a lot of bad batts in a short time.

I really dont think it is.

RE: Electric Slides Motor

The 120V breakers had nothing to do with it. You have a 12V auto-resetting breaker that is tripping for what ever reason and your problem is going to return. I would find the 12V breaker and replace it (they're cheap). Otherwise you are going to get stuck someplace with the slide out. The part will look something like these and you will need to get the amp rating off it: ***Link Removed*** Good luck, Scott Would there only be one of these auto resetting breakers? Most often yes, they have just one but on rare occasions someone will install two in parallel. I had one where they mounted the breaker under the trailer, next to the motor. Some others were mounted up near the front just behind the batterys. There are breakers designed to be installed in wet locations but they never seem to use them. Instead they use cheaper breakers designed to be installed inside. Those really dont do very well out in the weather and if they actually get road spray, they corrode. Scott

RE: melting plug

So the smart plug hasn't been certified by UL or UL marine and they make no mention of the one I respect the most, CES. It has just "met their (UL) performance requirements". It still has no NEMA designation and is not included in the NEC - unless I missed it. I guess time will tell.

RE: melting plug

It's sad but the industry's NEMA TT30R/P design is really under engineered IMHO. Many decades ago when it was created, there were no electric water heaters (in RV's) or micros, TV's, large battery chargers, etc. Just some lights and the occasional space heater. Then add in poor quality, off shore parts and it only gets worse. We use a lot more of the capacity if these "trailer" circuits now and while they work OK when everything is perfect, they don't like running a constant load at anywhere close to their 30A rating. It's too bad we can't switch over to the marine undustrys 30A receptacle for pedestals. It seems to hold up better. The 30A twist lock used in marinas is worst than the RV 30. It is a 80 or 90 year old hospital design and routinely causes marina fires. This is the new plug for marinas, however it would take years to convert everybody. Thanks, good to know. I guess I had my hopes up too much. Wonder if the new one will ever catch on in the RV world...
