good ideaSeptember 3, 2018 at 7:41 pm in reply to: Worn & Damaged RV Awning Fabric – Temp Repair #53041
I used the clear Gorilla tape on my awning and so far it is holding well. But I only needed to repair one end about 2 inches by 3 inches. I keep checking it to see when I will need to replace the fabric but so far, even with the storms it has stayed put. Good video again Ray.
I remember watching a video on someone replacing their fabric on their power awning like yours also.August 20, 2018 at 8:50 pm in reply to: Repairing Cracked RV Waste Tanks with Plasti-Mend #52908

Another good video, Thanks RayJuly 20, 2018 at 6:49 pm in reply to: Finally decided #52597
Congrats, I feel your pain as I am in a similar situation since I was made power of attorney for my mother in law after her son past away 2 years ago. We had to bring her home with us till I could get her finances straighten out but now she is in a Alzheimer unit. But wife and I still take short trips with out fiver till we can break away.
But have fun in the mean time and before you know it the life of full timing may come your way.
Again, congrats on your purchase. :yahoo:July 19, 2018 at 7:46 pm in reply to: Fridge and jack repair #52577
Sorry to hear about the communication screw up but glad to hear that the fixes were simpler than thought.

Thanks Ray, Another great video. The HoKena emergency lights really looks like a great deal and a lot safer than the old flares.July 11, 2018 at 8:17 pm in reply to: Traveling with Chickens #52487
Feathered or plastic tuxedo? Sorry, couldn’t resist :yahoo:July 9, 2018 at 8:35 pm in reply to: Which Solar Panels? #52443
I’ll put in a plug for Eddie & Aileen. Eddie travels the country installing the solar units for people and has a lot of knowledge on the subject. I have learned a lot about installation just from his videos that he is in. I am sure he would help you decide on what would be best for your needs if you ask.July 1, 2018 at 5:19 pm in reply to: Why We Are Buying a New Truck Versus Fixing Big Blue #52360

I measured my batteries and then picked up a super heavy plastic storage box with lid from our local Menards (Big Box Home Improvement Store) then mounted it temporarily then marked where I needed to drill and mount a pipe for air to escape through the bottom and added another to the lid for connecting the air intake. Works like a charm and only had about $10.00 total. Just an idea.June 5, 2018 at 8:17 pm in reply to: Dometic Fridge Cooling Unit Replacement #52093
It is a good if you take a picture of every connection before disassembly so you have a picture to reference when putting back together. at least that is what I do so it makes it faster to get back together.May 30, 2018 at 9:05 pm in reply to: Best 5th wheel (in your opinion) for full time living? #52036
Another business that has these washer dryer combos plus individual washers and dryers that can be stacked is https://www.pplmotorhomes.com/parts/rv-appliances/washers-dryers/rv-washers-and-dryers. Calling is free to get questions answered if they can help you. I have found them less on parts compared to other RV parts dealers. Me? I play the cost game so depends on price as well as delivery time. Most of the time Amazon is where I go but I have used pplmotorhomes other times.May 29, 2018 at 7:55 pm in reply to: Best 5th wheel (in your opinion) for full time living? #52016
Now I can’t remember but I did go and look at the Outdoors RV 5th wheels online and think I seen a couple that were about 38 feet in length. But can see why you really like them. Even I looked to see where I could go and see one for real. But Colorado is the closest to me here in Iowa. But if i was to purchase a new one I do believe I would travel the distance. Stay safe and RV hard. LOL
