  1. Hi, so this is a head-scratcher of a first post: I just landed at my destination after five days of nonstop travel (as in, no time to even cook or clean, had to be here by a certain date - not my preferred way to travel, but duty calls). My fridge has been set to the middle setting this entire time, running on gas. I have warm tilapia, room-temperature eggs, and a tepid jar of pickles (among other things) stinking up my motorhome. To give you some context, this fridge has been a very low-key problem child since shortly after I acquired the RV last summer. The thermocouple probe in the fri
  2. Hi folks, I learned a "bit" about this skill from a machinist I worked with. I've messed up a few drill bits in my career (15 years as a Wood Model/Pattern Maker). I don't use this skill much, and recently I decided I couldn't see the grinder and bit as well as I would like so I went shopping for a drill bit sharpener online. After seeing the prices, I have decided to buy a bright light and a magnifier. And maybe a new set of bits. The price of a sharpener would justify it. I found this video and picked up a few tips I didn't know. I can add my own tips; Eyeball the angle. It
  3. Hello everyone, I've got an Atwood 8525-II that has a loud rattling sound that comes and goes. Usually on start up then mellows out and comes back again. I can feel a bunch of play in the blower wheel when i fish my finger behind it and push on it. Is it the motor or the blower fan? Thanks!
  4. Hello friends, ​I try to get on my roof fairly regularly to check out how things are & clean & apply roof protectant. However, after this summer I saw something I had never seen on my roof before. I'm guessing that my roof is of the "rubber" variety. It's about 16 years old & is white. It seems to be scaling & flaking off in some places revealing a blueish - black material underneath. I don't believe it's leaking. I'm attaching a photo of this. ​What do I need to do to repair, prevent & protect my roof? ​Thanks in advance, ​Loxley

  6. Darn it all.. I'm curious what folks do for windshield repairs. I've seen some of those DIY repair kits, and I know there are professional folks who will do it for you. Do the pro's really do that much of a better job? Are any of the multitude of brands of DIY kits better than another? What is a ballpark amount you have paid to have a professional do it? I've replaced windshields, but never dealt with just a little chip before. I guess I'm also curious if it's true that repairing it will prevent it from eventually expanding or is it just cosmetic. I guess it would be called a "sta
  7. We are looking for contact info of RV/trailer window manufacturers so we can buy replacement windows for our travel trailer. If you have suggestions, please reply. Thank you.
