  1. I guess they will do slides but they are reluctant to do so (at least at the Mesa shop). The guy said they don't recommend it and it would be disproportionately expensive. I didn't ask for details.
  2. I did the flexarmor but cannot give you much detail as I only have had for about 4months. Looks great. They remove everything, drip rails, vents, AC and cover all seams. Wehn they reinstall you get new vent covers and new seal for the ACs.Total additional weight when done is about 150 lbs as I recall. The coating virtually dries on contact after being sprayed and they apply a thick coat. It is much thicker than an epdm. As Glenn said they do not do it in a campground so we stayed in a nearby hotel a few nights. I did not realize that Rhino was now doing roofs. Both flexarmor and the Rhino bedliner materials are made from polyurea. The flexarmor is a modified formula of polyurea to allow for flex as cracking was a concern. It is softer to the feel than a bedliner. So did Rhino also modify their formula? Another question I would have is whether this is actually Rhino of Rhino lining fame or if someone is playing games with the tradename. RV ROOF also goes by Flexarmor and is trademarked and then you get the campground one going by the name of RV Armor causing all kinds of confusion. Anyway. I love the new roof. I had a branch rip our first one and I would be very surprised if a branch could get through this. Plus no more annual maintenance. We had ours done in Mesa Arizona but the first store is in Green Cove Springs Fl.
  3. We have one of the 16 gallon water heaters and never really have running out as a big concern. I liked the idea of a tankless for less weight and less energy use. Are these not real benefits?
  4. I am confused on this as well. Some people say their's work great while I read others who say they are either scalded or cold.I am interested but this conflicting info has scared me off.
  5. Glenn. I apologize if you answered this before. I am trying to envision your set up with the mini split underneath. What is the clearce from the back of the minisplit to the RV floor? Did you put a protective grate or screen in front of the unit? Are you holding the unit in place with angle iron attached to your frame?
  6. Where does New Horizons mount the mini splits?
  7. I have been thinking of doing this also but with the 120 volt.
  8. Glenn you have probably covered this previously but isn't your bottom mount position going to make the dust in the filter problem worse?
  9. Hi Just did some work on the toilet ball valve and I found a lot of calcium build up. Recommendations for water softener?
  10. Thanks John. Interesting.
  11. Glenn's system involves major loads and I suspect he is looking at busbars like this which are anything but cheap. https://www.electricalhub.com/blue-sea-2107-powerbar-busbars-600-amp-2. John T what do we really need for busbars because there can be a vast price differential which is why I looked at making my own heavy duty ones just like Glenn.
  12. Glenn rather than smash pipe why not just order from copper from a place like this https://www.metalsdepot.com/brass-products/copper-flat-bar. Also, you can buy on ebay. I agree with John you just seem to be asking for problems by attaching it to aluminum angle. I have not made my own but looked into it and then bought them due to time considerations. I think if you walk through a dollar store or home depot you will see all kinds of plastic or rubber items that could be used for mounting (bottoms for canes or table feet). Otherwise if wood is easiest just put a buffer layer of plasticor dip them in plastidip.
