Good evening. Low was 19 here this morning. Coffee was good. Took the fiver back to the dealer for some extended warranty work, and some issue they messed up with, when still in original warranty. Glad to hear the Dakota is making progress. Gordon, the weather sounds better in Yuma, for sure. Getting old is sometimes no fun, but better than the alternative.

I have friends Q, it's raining and cool there ,,,El Nino or whatever....

I've been fighting roof leakage since I got my current rig.
The A/C gaskets are a joke, I'm replacing mine 1 more time and then if it leaks again the whole thing is getting a flying lesson !
I'm going to try adding some putty tape under the gasket this time.


I'll be replacing it with a Fantastic vent fan if that doesn't work !!!

Popeye - I have been considering using a caulking gun to apply sealant around and against the AC gaskets and build it up so water cannot get in.

Yep raining, I took off to go to Parker looking for Soda Stream mixes and ended up going N on a hwy that had no signage of where it goes so I got to use my GPS on my phone and it told me I am approaching Parker 45 minutes driving not knowing where I was??? Pretty country though. Wal-Mart don't carry it any more.

To be continued its din din time. My spaghetti

I tried that on the last one , I couldn't get the thing to reach from the outside because I already put on the A/C unit , so applied it on the inside.

Didn't work still leaked , not believing it was the new A/C gasket I wasted a few years trying to find/redo everywhere else but !

Good morning all!

25 here this am, blue sky again!

Tim, I have not been in Parker for 20 years, but it was a nice town back then. I used to Off-Road race and a friend we raced with lived there.

I don't know much about RV a/c gaskets. Can you double them? But it sounds like it must be low, and water is puddling around it?

Have a great day all!

L.

Good Morning Everyone!!! Back home, and just finished catching up!!
Well, for the pack-rat problem, from what I have been told, a rope light, around your MH will do the trick! They will not step over it?? No,, Really!! I have seen many MH's in Az. that had them, so, maybe it works?
Well, my friend and his wife are on their way back to Wi. That will be a shock to their system, after the temp's here!
Well, back to catching up on all the post's!
Everyone have a great day! Rail!

Morning all. Coffee/cocoa good. Weather here in central Texas is cold for me, but I am so cold-natured. High in the 50's today and warmer tomorrow. In my experience with roof A/C leaking and sagging roof structure, you can put shim material between the roof membrane (rubber, EPDM, aluminum, fiberglass) and the structure below, that builds up the area. Then put the A/C gasket on the roof membrane. Then a couple of coats of self-leveling caulk on lower outside of gasket, then re-set A/C. No more puddling and new gasket will seal to roof and prevent future leaks. Has worked for me, and others.

Hope all stay well, safe, and warm.

ps water heater tank died during family Christmas gathering over New Year's weekend at my sister's house. Tank rusted out. Suburban 6 gal. direct spark gas only. Ordered new one from Amazon and it is supposed to get here tomorrow. Then waiting for warm weather (for me that means high above 60 ) Maybe next week.

Good Morning All

Still raining... with the occasional heavy snowflake mixed in.

Thanks to all for the "sagging roof" advice. May be several weeks before I get a chance to address it but I'm eager to get going on it. I'll pull the AC unit and see what's going on. Hopefully the existing structure isn't too rotted out. If it is, the steel 2x2 tubing might be the best solution... although I'm not too crazy about putting additional holes in the roof.

Speaking of pulling the AC... it appears to be the original. I might consider replacing it. Suggestions on a replacement?

Steve

Morning Gang! Hope everyone is good! Just setting here waiting for the sun to melt the frost off the windshields before I go out and fill the van with stuff to take to the shop. Have to get it out of the yard and the garage so the guy that is coming Saturday to polish the Dakota has room to work in the garage! As I previously stated on here, I was going to do the wet sanding and polishing. But he came over and told me how long he's been doing it and what he was going to do , so for $200 bucks i'll let him do it ! But I will watch what he does as they have new supplies and tecniques for that stuff now! Bobby

Good Morning Gang,
Coffee is good this morning, weather getting better, supposed to get into the low 70's today, and the breeze cut in half, only about 10 to 12 mph.
Good advise on the shimming of the roof.
Bobby,
Sounds like you are heading in the right direction. It is hard to downsize, but man is it worth it once you get over the initial shock.
Have a great day all,
Frank

Good Morning,

15 this AM and boy did the hot of the coffee do the trick. The weather is up and down here and not sure what it is going to do next. Sun's out at least, that always helps.

Lot's of stuff to do today and w--k this weekend so talk with you later. Hope everyone is well. Lynne

Morning,
Currently 48 and SUNNY Ya Baby
Spaghetti was good but I cooked it so I need say no more
Boy I got the shock of my life yesterday after getting home from Parker (I found a casino )
Joe said he was going to take a shower at the resort but found out you have to pay for it?? I said What? Yep he said. What am I paying for here just a place to park? I have never heard of it. I don't even think truckers pay at the truck stops do they?
I think its time we look elsewhere. I did research it before getting here but never thought we would have to pay for showers. The resort pays water, sewer one hour of wifi a day, no pool, exercise room, TV we pay electric.
I will say it is very clean here.

Hey Gordon what ya got down there? I don't need tv I just bought a new antenna
Tim
