Looking forward to reading yours!
This tip is primarily to clean off the sensors so they will read correctly. It only works for a short period. The better tip is to replace the sensors with see level II

I stand corrected. It will not work to clean all the sink and surfaces like you may desire.

I will use one of those 'store bought' sprays, so it will be safe, and not be out of balance, like mixing my own bleach formula might be.
I am just answering these as I come to them and someone else may have said this.

I have been to a lot of bio hazard training classes curtesy of my job with the post office. 5 per cent bleach solution will kill just about anything including the aids virus.

Aids virus? Where/how would it be applied?

Thanks!

If you have to back into a campsite at night without a helper, a couple of flashlights positioned where the driver's side of the coach will be positioned is very helpful. Of course, a walk through looking for obstructions is required first.

Problem with Slide out Vinyl Covers getting checked from weather. My motorhome sets more than it is used with the slide outs in, so the first 3 to 4 inches of the vinyl slide out cover wears out long before the rest. Covered the entire length with 4 inch EternaBond tape and after 3 years they are still like new.

What was the process with your EternaBond?

I assume you cleaned your covers first with something.

Did you use the EternaBond special primer (Wow its expensive!)


Thanks
