    We always wipe, with paper towels, our dishes and pot/pans to remove the majority of grease and oils prior to washing. Not just bacon or hamburger grease but olive oil is one of the worst for coagulating and turning into that white caking glob. Grease is like a magnet to other grease and oils...

    Not sure what you mean by flour for baking. But, if it was white and came apart in chunks, it was grease. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    New to the forum-Just purchased a Sundance XLT 189MB

    Congrats on the new trailer. Solar and slide toppers are a good addition. I’ll speak about Hwy 1 from south of Monterey to Ragged Point. Some parts are very windy and narrow with steep drop offs. With your trailer it won’t be a problem, you won’t get to look at the view too much though. The...

    Slide cable problems

    Norco Accuslide is the cable system on my 2016 Bighorn. Also, my screws to mount the pulleys are much bigger than yours as well. Yours look #8 screws. Mine are #10 or #12s. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    I have a question about your production. With your roughly 600 watts of panels, I would guess that would be about 36 amps total, I know that’s variable. How many ah on average are you putting back into the lithium batteries each day, assuming a sunny day. I have 600 watts of panels but lead acid...

    1/2 Inch PEX Faucet Water Shutoff Valve

    That’s good reasoning and I can’t disagree with doing it that way. Cost less and saves a step. I’m just used to residential and commercial plumbing so I like an angle stop or straight stop and brass. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    2020 Cyclone brakes making noise.

    Hum, same thing happened to me in 2014 on our 2012 Bighorn with Dexter axles. Rear passenger side. Because of that, when we got our current 2016 Bighorn I installed disc brakes. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    New trailer, now for solar

    So my Resmed, AirSense 10 AutoSet, is not listed as approved on the document you linked. On mine if I used 12v dc direct from the battery, I’d need a dc to dc converter because my Resmed needs 24v dc. I already have the ac to dc converter that came with the cpap. The Magnum has enough watts...

    New trailer, now for solar

    We’ll I’ll have to check on mine now. My understanding is pure sine wave inverter is the same as your home power. At home you have a converter to convert from AC to DC. If you use that same converter in your RV your still converting AC, through your inverter, to DC. Sent from my iPad using...

    New trailer, now for solar

    I run my cpap off my Magnum MS2812 inverter when dry camping. It supplies the same 120v power as when you’re plugged in. Just need to make sure your inverter is pure sine wave. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Dometic AC Documentation / Service 2016 Bighorn 3010RE

    I had airflow problems in my 2016 Bighorn 3685RL and I unintentionally solved it. The bathroom had a return air vent but no supply vent so the bathroom would get very warm on hot days. Since the supply and return channels run the full length of the trailer I decided to cut/drill a new hole in...

    Tire Hardware

    If you have the lug nuts with thin chrome metal pressed over steel lug nuts, the 12 point will sometimes cam/slip over the edges of the nut. The 6 point won’t do that. If your lug nuts are solid steel, weather plated or not, the 12 point is fine. Unless you use an impact gun, not recommended...

    With that wall shared with the bathroom there is likely more vent pipes going up that wall. The source of smell may be one of those. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Location of anti-siphon check valves?

    Anti-siphon valves can be a real pain but they are a health/safety item. They are placed above the flood rim of the fixture they are protecting. In the case of our RVs, above the rim of the highest toilet/toilets attached the black tank. That’s why they’re placed in high, inaccessible places. If...

    I’m guessing you’re dealing with Tredit. As someone who has dealt with Tredit three times on wheel issues, I can say they are very responsive to their customers. All times they have replaced the wheel in question and the last time all four wheels. There is a lot of weight on there, in my case...

    Anderson brass valve froze up

    I used Dow Corning 111 for many, many ,many years in the plumbing trade for faucet/valve repairs. I would buy it in the larger grease gun tubes and dispense it with a grease gun. It’s good stuff. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Anderson brass valve froze up

    Whatever you do, don’t try to lubricate the new brass valve with WD-40. That will lock it up way tighter than is is now. Actually don’t try to lubricate it with anything. In the old valve the cartridge could be removed and lube or replace. I don’t think the new brass ball valve is able to be...

    Anderson brass valve froze up

    The new Anderson brass valve is less likely to bypass, like the original valve did. But, it is hard to turn when it has not been exercised in several months or longer. That’s the same with any angle stop, ball valve, code cock, etc. when it’s set idle for a long period of time. I made up a...

    Look where the vent pipe comes out of the roof. Assuming the vent pipe goes straight up. Look inside and outside vertically below the vent pipe to see if there are any screws, nails, what ever, penetrating the wall below the vent pipe termination. Also, remove vent cap from roof and look down...

    Another possibility could be Heartland was out of stock on Sailun (or some other good tire) and put blowmax tires on the trailer. Not good for the person that buys that trailer, but. It’s hard to get trailers off the assembly line without tires on them. Not making excuses for Heartland, it’s...
