Remodeling your RV / Re: Backsplash
« Last post by ruthandken CDN on Today at 11:49:22 AM »
Originally I put up those peel and stick tiles, the ones that are made of a vinyl.  Didn't stay up in any kind of heat.  Took it all down and put up the ones that are made of metal.  They haven't moved in 3 years.  The adhesive on the back is much, much stronger than what is on the back of the vinyl tiles and IMHO the metal ones look better.  I put them in my kitchen and in my bathroom.  They come in many styles and colours, check HomeDepot and Lowes.  https://www.homedepot.com/p/Inoxia-SpeedTiles-Linox-11-88-in-x-12-in-Self-Adhesive-Decorative-Wall-Tile-in-Stainless-Steel-USID811-1/206643376

Winnebago-specific issues / Re: When did Winnebago quit using HWH?
« Last post by John Canfield on Today at 11:47:28 AM »
....  It was also good to see HWH with a table at the rally, as they were kind of out of the game for a while, and so close to Forest City.
I have a warm fuzzy feeling for HWH, I think they make a great product. They used to treat service customers to lunch when their nearby restaurant was open. They had the best pie there   :P

Winnebago-specific issues / Re: HWH 625S series jack troubles

Can you pull the motor (or motor/pump?) It might be possible to get it repaired or maybe you can find a part number on the motor. I think the scissor jack idea would work fine, good idea.

Thanks.  Sometimes you just need an update :).  The tiles are pricey but sometimes they are on sale.  They also sell them on Amazon.  They are certainly light-weight and repairing an issue is straightforward. They are also heat resistant, which makes using them near the stove possible.  We are definitely pleased with that project.

We live in Arizona and it definitely gets hot here.  We used the glue on tiles from Lowes.  We did remove the border that was peeling back and removed any loose wall paper.  We haven't had any issues.  It took between 4 and 6 hours to complete the work.  Some before and after pictures.

Looks great! Fresh update and more modern. Nice!

As usual I got off the track I intended when I started this topic.  What I was trying to say and didn't come out very clearly is that please do not turn every board into an RV related board only.  The Shade Tree is serving as an outlet for NON RV posts but the comment that this is an RV Forum only seemed to imply that somehow, non-RV posts were not to be tolerated.  Nuff said before I stir up the natives even more...lol

BTW - I do agree with the shutdown of that thread - it was headed for the drain at lightning speed.

Trailers & Fifthwheels / Re: Black tank dump valve
« Last post by BikerFlex&HappyJen on Today at 11:21:41 AM »
We had an issue on our maiden voyage with a brand new tt. We had a backed up toilet. We tried being too frugal with water. Never again. Now I try to always sprinkle some powdered RidEx after each dump station so it helps break up anything in the black tank. I keep a small box of it in a sealed plastic bag in the bottom of the bathroom vanity.  I also use a tank sanitizer or the smell is not good. Even the first few times using the tt the black tank sensor didnít show correct after a dump. After a tank dump, I check the sensors, and most of the time the black tank one doesnít read correctly. I then dump three 1 1/2 gallon buckets of water into the toilet to the black tank and that usually resets the sensor to empty almost every time.

During the clogged toilet, I added ridex and some dawn dish soap to the toilet and it sat overnight. The next day we used a drain snake and gently made a path from the toilet to the black tank and it finally broke free. We had to carefully move it down without rotating so the snake wouldnít get stuck.

As Rene suggested you may have a poop pyramid that had made its way to your black tank sewer exit and blocked it. Try adding some ridex and dawn dish soap and then add some extremely hot water to your black tank via the toilet. It may take awhile for it to dissolve.  Hopefully it will break up the blockage if that is what is causing your plug.

Oh, if possible make sure your tanks, especially black tank, are 2/3 full before dumping. The pressure helps push everything out. Even if you have to top your black tank off with water before you head to the dump station.

Please update your thread once you resolve your issue so others may learn from your experiences. Hope all goes well for you and you get it resolved!

General Discussion / Re: Lighting at campground
« Last post by mel s on Today at 11:14:42 AM »
We have rope lights that we like to put around our awning,  I like to leave them on all night.  Was just wondering if this was an annoying thing to other campers.  I would hate to think my lights were keeping anyone awake at night so thought I would ask you knowledgeable folks.

I can promise you that you will not annoy anybody when you turn them OFF.
