RE: Materials are Coming in

True, but I am pumping a lot of water. It’s a 24 volt pump and pumps about 34 imperial gals a minute. Maybe the pump doesn’t draw that much.

RE: Materials are Coming in

I see these projects and installs on RV’s of hundreds of wattages. In this case 400! And I ask ...why so much? I’ve been watering cattle with a solar system for 17 years. Watering as much as 350 head (2000 to 3000 gals a day) with four batteries and two 64 watt panels. Do RVer’s tend to overbuild?

RE: Two features a must in a fifth. Who builds them

Or it’s in storage...batteries are in warm shop for the winter and she wants something from the far end of the trailer. Well if it was like our kids you would have to climb over the island bar and sink to get to the back.

RE: Two features a must in a fifth. Who builds them

We have had many occasions and locations where we are thankful to be able to get to the rear of the trailer to access storage, lay on the couch, watch a little tv, sit four at the table for a bite. Might be parked at a rest stop, on the curb in front of friends house for a few days. It can be very convenient. Thanks for the input folks.

RE: Two features a must in a fifth. Who builds them

Not one of the Alliance models have awnings the fully protect the entrance from sun or rain.

Two features a must in a fifth. Who builds them

We have an 09 Cedar Creek. 34 TSA. Two features that appealed to us was the fact that even with 3 slides the door entrance is fully protected by the awning. Not like many today with slides close to the door and the awning end near even with one side of the door. Camp in the rain with a wind....and your stairs get wet. The other is that this trailer is fully accessible but for the two recliners when the slides are in. 4 can eat at the table and one can walk right to the rear with out opening a slide. It was a feature FR bragged about. Does any builder today have such a floor plan etc that has these two features.

RE: Fibreglass wall laminate separating??

Was thinking for starters to remove the lite and run a screw behind it to see if what remains of the wood has any integrity. Is there any glue spray that could would work to spray into the gap and then press it together? Is there a wider corner trim as the original just barley overlaps the side?

Fibreglass wall laminate separating??

We must have gotten moisture inside the wall and the thin wood that the fibreglass is glued to has come apart. So the wall is bubbling. How to fix?

RE: Costco/ Colman Solar set up?

It is 110 watt. I really don’t need a controller or inverter as I Already have those.

Costco/ Colman Solar set up?

Costco has this “Colman” 110 watt solar system that comes with controller and 300 watt inverter for $170.00 in Canadian funny money. Seems like a good buy if the panels are any good. The price is much cheaper that other panels I’ve seen. Is one panel as good as any other if they work??

RE: Best way clean 5th wheel

Yes ReJex is excellent to use everywhere but especially notable on the cap as the Bugs for a large part will slide off in a rain storm. However if you have considerable “oxidation” that should be removed first. If you don’t you will see swirlies and will not get a consistent finish.

RE: Suspension & Shocks: doing maintenance & upgrades. Suggestions?

If your going with new shocks on the trailer check to see if the mounts allow for proper compression.

RE: Anyone have a favorite RV wax ??? I use this on the fifth, the boat, the truck etc. The bugs just slide off when I wash. A great and easy product to use. But any oxidation should be polished off first.

RE: Canadian “snow bird” numbers?

This has to be a considerable benefit where Canadians spend. I remember hearing years ago when our dollars were lower than the U.S. some parks would take the Canadian dollar at par. Does this happen anywhere nowadays I wonder.

Canadian “snow bird” numbers?

Has any organization produced any estimates of the number of Canadians that RV south in the winter?

RE: Electric black tank dump valve. Worth it?

Larry this trailer does have another second valve fully exposed with/at travel cap. The grey water Valves also are hidden with in the belly then pipes all join before final valve. So I do not like your idea because there are times when I dump grey water away into the grass or cactus when boon docking. I would loose that option if I don’t fix this valve.

RE: Electric black tank dump valve. Worth it?

Well you all have scared me off of the electric option. My CC has cable...6 foot! The valve is mounted at 90 degrees from vertical. It has always been stubborn to move. The whole thing is hidden from view as it is all above the belly panels. So operating an electric one “manually” would not be an option. Thank you all. Including the comedians.

Electric black tank dump valve. Worth it?

Been having trouble with cable and valve leaking. Took belly off once to deal with cable. Now valve leaking. Thinking if I have to take belly off again perhaps I should go electric. Are they trouble free?

RE: 09 Cedar Creek rubber roof cleaning? Do I need to?

Thanks for the affirmation regarding my reluctance to "wash the roof". Besides it does get a blast of soft water rain once in a while. I have all the trailer that you can see looking great after polishing with "Mothers finishing polish" that removed all the oxidiation. then finished it up with "Rejex". Your trailer cleans very easy after useing this product.

09 Cedar Creek rubber roof cleaning? Do I need to?

I don’t really care how dirty it might be up there. I never look at it but to check all the caulking. The only reason I perhaps might clean it is because when it rains the dust etc up there contributes to the staining where the water might run down the side. If I do can I just use a bucket of water and laundry or dish soap? Brush...And rinse it off. After drying does it need to be treated with anything. I was probably spoiled. Previous rv’s had aluminum roofs.
