    Plumbing Phobia

    Thanks for the help! I managed to get what I needed at a funky little hardware store here in Tacoma. They are the shark bite adapters that go from the old 3/8 inch poly to the new 1/2 inch pex. The guy there helped me piece together just what I needed and it all works perfectly now!!

    Plumbing Phobia

    Not sure if anyone can give me a hand...I need to reconnect the plumbing under the kitchen sink. The old connectors were leaking like crazy. Went to HD thinking I had the pieces I needed to replace in my purse only to discover they got left behind.😥So, as I had taken photos, I was able to show one of the employees what I needed to replace. He found me what I also thought would do the job. I needed to cut part of one pipe off and use a new attachment to the sink. Problem is it does not fit my pipes. It is the grey plastic pipe, which I thought was PVC. I've since figured it is the old outdated polybutylene. It doesn't fit the new adapter which is 1/2" x 1/2". Can anyone tell me what size adapter I need and what company makes them?? Thanks!

    Draining water system

    Mine has the little o rings. By the end of the day my tank was dry. I'll try all of your suggestions and let you know if it solves it. Thanks all😁

    Draining water system

    Soooo, this is my first trip of more than a night out. I drained the water tank etc. last fall and winterized. I used the little pull thingies under the sofa by the tank, following the manual directions. I have now filled my tank and right away realized I needed to close those suckers as water was pouring out from underneath. I had forgotten they were pull ones. But, it is still dripping after having pushed them down. After reading this, I wish I’d just run the pump, but, too late now. Is there something I’ve missed in closing them? They may need to be adjusted? Rotated? ?? Or could be hooped-aahh! Any one who could give me an idea of the steps to use these drains would be wonderful! Thanks!
  5. I put 50-55 lbs. in mine.

      Thanks! I saw  somewhere someone had put in 100psi and I thought that sounded extreme. Don't want to blow up the poor old dears!!

  6. Duct tape is a good friend!

    Wow!!
  8. I'm thinking that replacing the entire outdoor shower is the best bet as the cover for it was attached with velcro when I bought my Toy. AND, there is no shower head. Amazon sells several complete replacements for under $40USD. 6" x 11". Before I get myself into this project, can anyone tell me if it's a difficult replacement or a snap? Just have to preparemyself. Part 2 of help needed...the screen door. Mine, for some reason, fits unevenly around the frame. Not sure if it's the door or the frame. It fits fine everywhere but where the door latch is. It is tight enough there that the screen door touches and you have to push it in (not alot of force, but enough that over time the paint is wearing off). There appears to be a missing latch that would have held the door closed while the coach door is open, but the pressure of the tight fit in this one spot keeps it closed. But, I can see where something has come off on the interior frame of the door. Does anyone have an Itasca (92) that would be willing to post a photo of the complete screen door set up so I can see what I'm missing here? The screen door also will not attach itself to the coach door with the little pressure arm as the plate it is supposed to snug over is broken. Any suggestions? Thanks one and all! Sue

    92 Spirit - Foam Rubber Seal for Coach Door - Source?

    I have the same year and model RV...Mine seems to have been replaced at sometime with a thick foam tube. It's not great. I'm looking for the same thing, as well as any suggestions for door hardware. I find I constantly catch my sleeve, or something on the knob that sticks out of the frame. Also, my screen door does not close smoothly. One area rubs quite hard against a part of the frame, so it is impossible to keep the door and the screen door together when opening the door. Not sure if it is out of whack, or ?? Has anyone else had this issue?

    Awesome, Linda! Thanks! I'd love to know what this guy used to paint over them. Any idea?

    Painting over decals

    This summer I am hoping to tackle the exterior of Honey, my Itasca. She has filon siding and it is in pretty good shape, but needs to be brightened up with a good clean. I've read that Barkeeper's Friend is a good choice for cleaning the exterior. Is this okay to use on the filon? Then, once she has been given a good scrub, I would like to refresh the decals. Just wondering if anyone has tried painting over them and if so what they used. I would like to get it all looking spiffy and then do the Zep coat. Thanks in advance for any advice offered!
  14. Lots of great advice! Thanks a bunch! Did more research on the FRP and found painting it is the way to go. Just needs to cover the opening for the over cab window.

    What to use between top of cab and bottom of filon??

    Thanks to both of you. We ended using a marine sealant around the opening, applied very thickly. and then screwed the plywood to the metal. Finished it off with a tube of closed cell foam stuff my hubby found. We squished it into the space between the roof and the filon, from the outside. Seems to have done the trick!
