    I have a 2004 Damon Bayridge FK38′ Park Model and rain water is getting into the rig via the venting in the lift up door of the water heater. The water goes onto the floor under the water heater and eventually exits out to the carpet in the living room. We have definitely determined that heavy rains splashing over the roof is getting water in via dripping down over the vents. We put a piece of aluminum flashing the length of the door, over the vent, above the door to deflect the rain and it works great but the door gets extremely hot now and I’m concerned about it creating a fire hazard?
    Thanks for any suggestions!

    Hello! I’m David Rico, I have a 2006 Keystone Raptor toy hauler model # RP3018. I noticed after a few days of using the shower, I think my grey tank starts to leak water. Is this fairly easy to repair or change out?

    29′ w/no slides ‘Yes!) and an 8.1L. It’s a keeper with only 42,000 miles. Only real issue is “Delamination & Repairing Water Damage-(Minor). Comments/Suggestions. IE: Class & DVD would help. Thanks: Patrick: “The Jersey Swampfox”.

    Is it possible for the average guy to repair the inside walls where moisture from condensation from the windows has caused the wall covering to bubble? Can I just scrape it off and repaper or do I have to replace everything on the inside? Thanks

    Hi Dave,
    I have a diesel pusher. When I am running down the road is it ok to run my Onan 7500 Quite Diesel to cool the motor home?. Sometime the dash air is not enough.

    Under the circuit breakers I believe is the power inverter that sounds like a fan is running non stop. The fan gets louder when lights are turned on and gets quieter as the lights are turned off. Is there a potential problem with it? Just stared in the last few weeks.

    My power converter below the circuit breakers sounds like a fan running non-stop. When I turn on lights, it gets louder. When I turn off lights it sounds like it slows down and gets quieter. Is there a potential problem with it?

    I have a rubber roof on my RV and tried to attach solar panels with well nuts as suggested in the solar company’s instructions and the well nuts pulled out. Any suggestions on how to attach the solar panels to the rubber roof?

    My RV is an old 30amp class A. I am looking at options that will allow me to run both A/Cs during hot summer months. I have looked at changing the panel to 50 Amp, using a 50 amp to 30 & 20 amp splitter or just running a separate 20 amp circuit and auto transfer switch to the rear a/c connections from the generator box. Do you have a preference or is this the wrong approach?

    My slider on my 2014 forester is opening only partially. It opens about 2 inches only on one section of the panel. I checked the fuses, when I remove one fuse, the light next to it lights up and when I pull the second fuse (fuse is good) the light does not come on. Does this mean there’s a short in the wire or something else. I checked to see if there’s any blockage and nothing appears to be. Thank you.
