A few days ago, my iPhone has damaged due to falling water inside it.
We have been lucky!! This thing has been a learning process for sure!
In well over 60 nights over several years, we've never anchored the awning down with guy lines. Been in some stiff winds, too!
All that changed the afternoon when the awning was set up and a gust of wind picked it up and it came down with the ridge pole hitting DW in back of head. She cried, and it might have helped if I had.
Now I'll run a guy line straight down from the ridge pole and stake it at the bottom of the upright pole.
I placed the bed supports on the back end in the top slot and when I pulled out the bunk I just could not understand why the darn thing was so hard to pull out. It took me a couple hours of sleep time laying in bed worrying about what was going on to get my eureka moment. I fixed it the next morning.
When me and the wife were putting the king end bed supports in we must not have put them in the same bottom support slot. Needless to say while climbing in onside popped out and bent the slide rail some. Still okay to use. Just lucky only one side gave way.
Yup!I’ve done that one too.
YUp! I have done that too. ALso dented my tow vehicle. I slid on a dirt road going up a hill. I tried to back down the hill. Big mistake.
Perfectly fine road trip to & from Indiana. Backing into my own driveway, I caught the edge of the stabilizers on the sidewalk. Bent the crap out of both (I was able to bend them back), and broke two welds on the left one. Not sure how this occurred, as I've been backing in the same driveway for several years...
Goodbyepup I was towing and 17 year old with permit and mom ran a stop sign right into my pup Fd up lift, front and side I’d say totaled
Sorry to hear @PaThacker! That really sucks.
Don't leave the temp supports on the lifters , then forget to remove them when lowering the canopy.
Sorry to hear that.
I'd keep at them to find you another good camper instead of just paying what the camper is valued at. You'll likely not find another good one or one in as good of shape, for what the insurance wants to pay you. You might have to force their hand to do more than pay you a few bucks.
Hi! I recently got a camper and the previous owner also applied bits of silicone to patch some spider web cracks. I need to remove them as well. How did you remove the silicone - what did you use? Many thanks!
I'm a current owner who applied silicone to patch cracks. It looks like crap. On my list of fixes.
Yep - I wish he didn't do it....It will take me time to remove his silicone patches, and I will use something different for the new ones that I see...do you have a plan what you want to use?
After putting the dinette in the bed position, I tried close the curtains. I kneeled on the dinette bed — one knee in the exact middle — and broke the the table (if only I had closed the curtains FIRST.)
... and we were JUST discussing how we wanted to replace the table...
We have come up with a great replacement idea — we'll work on it next month when the weather begins to cool.
I thought from the beginning the the table looked weak in the bed position. I cut a piece of 2X4 to fit from the floor to the bottom of the table and attached a "T" board on the bottom to hold it vertical. From the way it broke it looks as if you have a booth dinette. Ours is a "U" dinette with support on three side and the 2X4 supports the forth side.
Hi BillyMc - thanks for your insights.
We will be replacing the dinette table with a lightweight folding table.
I've drawn out our plan for the rest of the dinette/bed below.
* We will use 4 1”x4” slats to create a “bench” — making a U-shapesdarea for relaxing & playing card games. (figure 1). A seat cushion will be added.
* If we need a bed, we will separate the slats to make a support for the bed cushions. (figure 2)
* To keep the slats from separating too much, they will be connected underneath with webbing straps. (figure 3)
* If the 1”x4”s flex too much, we will have to glue and nail 1”X1”s or 1”x2”s to the bottom to stiffen them. (figure 4)
Wish us luck!
I did this last week at Ft Desoto!!! Ugh. Fans all night to dry it out
