  1. Our propane leak detector keeps going off in the middle of the night! Bill gets up, checks everything, opens the kitchen vent and turns on the fan. Funny thing, it only happens at night. This is driving us crazy and I sure hope someone can give us an answer as to why this happens.....
  2. Does anyone know how to remove water stains from the ceiling? Jan
  3. The last couple of days, our outdoor radio has been going on by itself. Last night at 3:30, it went off and woke us all up. It does it during the day, also. We turned the volume way down but when the radio goes on, the volume goes back up. Has anyone had this problem and if so, what did you do about it?
  4. To FL-JOE: My name is woman_who_sees, which is a name I made up after seeing the film Dances With Wolves. I'm not Native American but my good friend is. She is Navajo and we share a love for that tribe. Others, too....
  5. Thanks We tried this but nothing. It doesn't seem to be getting any propane but furnace and stove are working fine.
  6. I just refilled the 30 pound external tank this past week. When I hooked the tank back up to our extend-a stay hose, everything in the motor home showed normal operation{lighting} with the exception of our water heater. The water heater had operated normally before I refilled the external tank this last time. I consulted the motor home manual for remedies and did everything the manual said{shut shore water off, drained the heater from both places externally and turned everything back on}. The water heater light came on with a dim red light instead of no light while water was he
  7. After 10 years of heavy use (we don't use our oven) , our microwave is finally dying. Can the one over the stove be replaced or do we buy a new one for the counter?
  8. I have heard good things about this combination but the smell of vinegar bothers me....
  9. I have asthma and pulmonary fibrosis and am looking for a COMPLETELY unscented cleaner. Amazon has one called Better Life. Have you ever used this or do you know of a better one?
  10. When we first started full-timing, we bought one of those little refrigerator thermometers and for nine years, it stayed at forty degrees. A few months ago it wet up five degrees so we turned the refer to "Colder". Worked fine. Temp went up so we went to "Coldest". Again, it worked fine for a few days now is going up again. This might be a stupid question but now what do we do?
  11. We live in Livingston, TX so we went to Walmart and bought a Little Green Machine. By the way, what is vinegar water? (I know it's vinegar + water but what are the proportions?)
  12. We full-time in our motorhome with two cats and like many cats, they throw up a lot and it is beginning to look like our carpet is multicolored. It's difficult to get one of those large rental shampooers in here so we have decided to buy a carpet shampooer so we can shampoo the small amount of carpet we have. Any suggestions on what kind to buy? Also, we have been told not to use cleaning solution with it but to use water and dishwasher powder. What do you think?.
  13. A woman I met at the local food bank was telling me she just bought a used RV. She says it is in pretty good shape and looks good except for the plastic toilet which looks like it hasn't been cleaned in awhile and is badly stained. I told her I would ask on this forum if there was anything she could do to clean it up (she's tried cleanser and Scrubbing Bubbles) or if she should just buy another one?
  14. Thanks to all who replied to my question. It seems obvious that the problem is with our faucet so we bought a new one when we returned from a year in New Mexico. But the problem persists. Now what?
  15. Ever since we bought our motorhome in 2004, we've had problems off and on with low water pressure. We didn't think about it much; figured it was just the park we were staying at at the time. We've been staying at Rainbow's End for over a year now and the pressure is worse than ever - only in the kitchen (it's fine in the bathroom). Awhile ago we took our rig in to the local RV repair shop for some repairs. We were going to be there all day so they hooked us up to water and electricity. They had to run some water in the kitchen and noticed how "wimpy" our water pressure was. We told t
  16. Thank you all for your suggestions! We cleaned everything (the filter, the fan, the housing) and voila! NO NOISE!
  17. We haven't cleaned the grease filter over our stove in years and it is now so greasy that it doesn't work well. I can't find a new one listed at Camping World so we will clean this one. But how? Any suggestions? Also, it makes an awful racket when I turn the fan on. Is the excess grease causing this?
  18. The fresh water fill hose located under the bed is leaking badly and the carpet on the right side of the bed is soaking wet. The RV repair place here is VERY busy and it will be over a week before they can see us. This same thing happened about three weeks ago and they replaced the hose and everything was OK once again. Now it has come lose and is doing the same thing again. Here's my question: The floor never completely dried from the first time and now it is wet all over again. Even after they fix the leak, the floor will take awhile to dry. Consequently, it has been wet for about a month
  19. We live in a 2004 Winnebago class A motorhome and the windshield curtains are shot! We want to replace them but ordering new curtains is nearly impossible. Apparently, these curtains snap on to a track but no one seems to be able to tell us what to buy. And apparently, you are supposed to sew new curtains, but I don't know how to sew. Help! I hope someone can tell us what to do...
  20. Oh, yes. It's MORE than possible! Bill and I live on $18000/year and as long as we are careful, we do alright. Put as much as you can each month into a savings account (how much you save depends on how much you are willing to sacrifice) because major RV bills happen.
  21. Never heard of putting reflectix on the floor but it sounds like a good idea. Did it work?
  22. Thank you all for your responses. We got an oscillating fan and we may get another; one of the tenants in the park has inexpensive skirting and we'll ask where he got it; we'll go to Sears in Albuquerque and get an electric blanket and oil heaters (also boots and winter coats); we bought reflectix and covered front windows and vents; bought 'storm windows' (plastic film) to cover other windows. Now I'm looking forward to seeing the beautiful mountains here covered with snow!
  23. Our favorite place to RV is New Mexico. We found an inexpensive RV park in Grants that charges $200/mo so that's usually where we stay. But this year, they have upped the price and now charge $200 + electricity. We live on a very small amount and must watch every penny so we are keeping the air conditioner off as much as possible so we won't have to pay a lot for electricity. Any suggestions as to how we can keep it fairly cool in here without the AC? What about the winter? We'll have to stay here this winter (we won't be able to afford a tow dolly until next spring) and the manager tell
