31  Main Forum / Tips and Tricks / Small hand held vacuum on: April 17, 2017, 02:40:38 pm
We wanted a very small hand vacuum for the PC.  We finally decided  on this one and are we glad we did.  
https://www.amazon.com/Carpet-Pro-SCT-1-Teeny-Vacuum/dp/B00MOAAK86/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1492453629&sr=8-1&keywords=teeny+tiny+vacuum

It is very small but very powerful and it comes with a 27 inch hose, a crevice tool and two brushes perfect for getting the dust off all the wood corners and ledges.  It received excellent reviews on many sites.  Home Depot and Walmart were sold out and Amazon was highly priced.

We ordered it from Ace Vacuum https://www.acevacuums.com/micro-hand-held-vacuum-sct-1-carpet-pro.html for 26.95 and free shipping.

Larry,

According to recreation.gov they are dong extensive road work in Arches NP.  They are still doing some ranger led tours but are not taking advanced reservations.  It is first-come first-serve.  If you are there and the Fiery Furnace tour is available, it is one of the best tours we have ever taken. 

When at the four corners you are also close to Mesa Verdi NP.  Another great park.

Bill,

Here is a link to an old post on window screens.  We have now used these for 8+ years and they still look brand new.  We bought the material at a local awning shop, gave them a pattern of our windshield and side windows and it cost in total about 80 dollars.  We attach the windshield one with heavy duty Velcro and use magnets for the side windows.

Patti,

I setup my small table top ironing board on the kitchen counter.  It woks great for me.  I tried it on the bed and as you say it is not stable enough but the sink counter works great.  I also have an ironing pad but I tend to use the ironing board more.

We had a similar problem and went to the RV show in Tampa and talked to the Thetford rep.  The Thetford rep turned one of the toilets upside down so we could see how it works.

When you step on the foot pedal it triggers the valve (looks like a rotating ball) to pivot on two pins underneath the valve.  As a maintenance item we now spray silicon at the pivot points and direct the spray underneath the valve at the two pins.  This lubricates the pins and allows the valve to open and close smoothly.  

So glad CW was able to fix it for you.  Enjoy your trip and safe travels.

Thanks Bruce-exactly what we need!
38  Main Forum / General Discussion / Euro Chair Specs on: February 26, 2017, 09:15:07 pm
We are looking for some information on the euro chairs.

How high off the floor is the seat?
How wide is the euro chair including arm rest?
How wide is the seating area i.e. How wide is the chair if you don't include the arm rest?
Are the arm rests removable?

Thanks

Nice job Joey!  We have talked about doing the same thing if we ever have a problem with ours

We carry three 10's and a 4.  We just replaced a 25' because the center liner collapsed and was blocking off the flow of water.  We buy ours at Walmart.  A raccoon will chew through a hose no matter what you pay for it just looking for fresh water.  This happened to us at Fort Desoto.

We carry ours in a covered plastic container with other fresh water accessories.  We always sanitize a new hose and then again at the end of camping season when we sanitize everything including the container they are stored in.  We also store all of our hoses with the two ends connected.  We were camping with family when one of the party connected their hose to the water inlet, turned on the water and ants started pouring out.  After inspecting their hose we saw many ants crawling around inside.

Badger,

Here is a link to what we did two years ago

http://www.phoenixusarv.com/community/index.php/topic,2080.msg16401.html#msg16401

We are very pleased with these.  They have held solid with no air leaks in the two years.

Jim

Here are the dimensions for our sofa table.  The exact size can be modified to meet your requirements.

Base
10" x 8 1/2" x 3/4
Radius on four corners is 1"
Top edge has 1/2" round over
I screwed the legs (center legs on screw holes) to the base with two screws.  The first screw is located 1 3/4" from the back of the base and 1 3/16" from the side of the base.  The other screw is located 2 3/4" from the back of the base and 1 3/16" from the side of the base.

Top
14" x 12 1/4" x 1"
Radius on front corners is 3"
Radius on rear corners is 2"
Top edge has 1/2" round over

Mounting Cleat
1 1/2" x 1" x 8 1/4"
I screwed the cleats to the legs with two screws each.  One is 1' from the back of the cleat and the other is 2' from the back of the cleat.

Cleat is located 3 3/8" from the back of the top.  I screwed the two cleats to the top with two screws each.  One is 3 1/2" from the back of the cleat and the other is 6' from the back of the cleat.

Legs
2 5/8" x 3/4" x approximately 22"
Overall length of legs are determined by thickness of Base, top and mounting cleat.
Side edges 1/4" round over

Attached is a picture of the table showing the underside with mounting cleats.

Jim,

No, this was not a jackknife sofa.  It was the one that had the air bed in it.  I would check with Phoenix to find out if the carpet was laid over the linoleum.  I know when we visited the factory many, many years ago (2003) we were impressed that they lined the whole floor with linoleum.  I do not know if they continued that practice through the years.

Jim,

We were the ones that built the table.  Here is the original post
http://www.phoenixusarv.com/community/index.php/topic,732.msg5027.html#msg5027

Not sure what kind of sofa you have in your 2006.  We have since replaced the sofa that is seen on the original post.  When we added the drawer to our new sofa we made sure there was enough room for the table to slide under.  The base of our table is 3/4 inch.

Corner to corner is 40 inches.  From the center of the door to the opposite wall is 26 inches.  Hope this helps!
