    This section of the forum is for helping each other out with our RV related problems. Post your question and hopefully some veteran RVer has the answer.

    Hi Kathy, I’m not sure which screws you mean. Almost all the screws on mine are Robertson type heads.

    Could you post a photo of them?

    Mine are more of a  swastika type head, when I’m back home next week I’ll try to post a pic, I just hate having to buy special bit ends all the time.  And a manual screw driver sometimes is all that you can access a screw with. Just would make my life easier seeing as how I’m the one who will need to be doing anything to the rig.

    Oh, I see, they may be what they call a tamper proof screw. There are many funky unique heads out there. I have a tamper proof bit set like this. Comes with many of the tamper proof type bits and regular styles in a nice little case.

    Not sure if it has your style but you could check places like Home Depot and Lowes.

    Hi Robin, you may try Ebay, sometimes I’ve found stuff there that is hard to find. Also a local plastics shop may be able to cut one out for you and smooth the edges.

    What model is the trailer?

    Ya, a plastics shop usually has the know how and tools to trim and cut plastic properly.
    This is an example of a place I’ve used in the past for custom plastic work.

    Might be worth a shot if you can’t find a replacement, likely there is some place similar where you live.

    It must be, robin…I’ve never heard of one either, lol!  You might find a small cutting board that would fit.  Did you check Camping World?

    Hi Norma,

    Thanks.. yes we did…i think the easiest solution at this point is to just buy a regular ole cutting board to put over once we are settled. The left side has a cover that fits so not too big of a deal.

    I was wondering if anyone has a olevia TV? We are having an issue with getting the TV to auto scan, cable and air channels!! We can’t find a place in the USA to talk to, only China! We do have a warranty, but I think it’s something simple. I hope.

    Marsha, what is the model number? I’ll see what I can find out. I was a TV repairman for 25 years before we hit the road. Still have some contacts and might be able to help you out with info.

    I use a cpap while sleeping. Convenient  when we are hooked up to power but if we are going to boondock some if I don’t have power from generator I guess I have to do something to get power to it. This is where I’m not familiar with electrical setups on RV. I’m dumb but willing to learn. I  have the 280RLS Cougar. Can I use the batteries somehow to run it. Would I have to install an inverter to run a separate outlet for power. Help Please.
