    Slide Room Toppers

    Like others w/ factory installed toppers, the angle for drainage has a lot to be desired. have heard about the beach ball, but how do you go about putting them in? Taking them out? Not being a rocket scientist, seems that someone would come up w/ something that can be installed on slide to help...

    Slide Room Toppers

    Ordered them along w/ the 2nd awning on our '18 3560SS. LOVE 'em!! Beats having to get up to sweep the slide tops off every time. Yes, ours do not have much of a pitch to them so water will pool on top, so best not to stand near them while being retracted cuz it will be alike a cow peeing on a...

    NEW Internal combustion Small Engines Now Banned in California

    Sadly, NY will probly follow suit. Many have said that with all this push for solar, wind energy, all have a limited lifespan and are NOT recyclable and have to be buried someplace. On top of that, there is NO way enough power can be generated to meet the needs of usage. Do the Einsteins of this...

    Musty odor in bathroom

    Ours is not like this at all. The white item (Studor Valve) is, ours has a cap instead. Plus, the black pipe on ours is loose. So if I p/u a Stupor Valve, do I just remove (somehow) the cap on ours, and replace it w/ the Studor? Then hand tighten the pipe back onto the drain pipe? Thread tape...

    Musty odor in bathroom

    So I finally got my butt in the coach to check the area under the bathroom sink. What I found was a 2" (?) pipe that was threaded on one end and screwed (although very loose) onto drain pipe for sink and a solid cap on the other end of it. Wasn't very long overall, maybe 4" tops. So I screwed...

    Musty odor in bathroom

    Last year our DD and SIL mentioned to us that they could smell a musty like odor in bathroom. Well, I agree there is some kind of distinct odor, but cannot see any areas that are wet either under the sink, walls, ceiling, etc. When I had my issues of winterizing it last year, didn't see any...

    Stuck sewer pipe adapter

    What do others do to lesson the adapter that screws into CG pipe fittings? Yesterday I had 2 that got stuck and only way I got them out was w/ a screw driver and hammer. Do not recall this ever happening before, but really don't want to go thru that again. Soap up the threads 1st?

    New sneakers

    Well as fate would have it, need to get new tires for Casper. Went to tire shop last w/e for rotation only to have them tell me they can't/won't due to low tread (3/32-4/32). Foooooey. Was going to get new ones in Oct, but with upcoming long trip planned, figure to play it safe and get new ones...
