Campers Grill

We have a 2002 Coleman Caravan, hard sided with the slide out bed over the hitch. The stickers/stripes along the outside have curled and looked awful, so I removed them, and am looking for replacement stickers, and a replacement grill that mounts on the side of the unit. Any Ideas where I can find these items? Thanks.

For peeling stickers – Apply gentle heat on the peeling vinyl graphics with a hairdryer or heat gun. This will reactivate the glue, so have some wax paper ready to lay the sticker on. You may like to know: How to remove old vehicle decals.
Replacing RV decals

You`ll need to thoroughly clean the area where the decals are to be installed with rubbing alcohol to get any residue off. Tape the decal backing in place with painter`s tape. Then use a measuring tape to ensure it`s going in the exact spot you want it.

One of the first things to try when attempting to give old RV decals their original shine is a simple cleaning product. Some RVers swear by 3M Marine Fiberglass Cleaner and Wax. Others say they`ve had luck with the individually packaged Rejuvenate restorer wipes or Max`s RV Vinyl Decal & Graphic Restorer.
You could use a bit of rubber cement or a glue stick to try to reattach corners that are peeling off. Or, if you feel that the whole label is sliding off and needs to be freshly reattached, you could soak the bottle in warm water until the label comes off entirely.
The long-term durability of a cast vinyl is typically seven to nine years, but this can be extended with proper/timely care and limiting exposure to the elements. The suppliers of graphics to the RV industry offer both calendered and cast graphics, so it is a conscious decision to choose the better product.
They are made from a specially designed vinyl material that can be removed and reapplied multiple times. Standard vinyl decals are made from high-quality vinyl material that is designed to last for years. They can be applied directly to the surface of your RV and come in a variety of designs and colors.
Glue sticks and Gorilla Glue are good for restoring small stickers, such as stamps. If your target is a single sticker, roll the glue stick over the back of the sticker and then reapply it. Gorilla Glue has a stronger adhesive, so be careful when using it and be precise.
Nail polish remover or rubbing alcohol

Soak a rag, paper towel, or cotton ball in rubbing alcohol, nail polish remover, lighter fluid, or yes, even cheap vodka. Let it sit on the face of the labels for at least 15 minutes for an easy way to remove labels.

Soak a rag or paper towel in rubbing alcohol. Cover the sticker you want to remove with the alcohol-soaked rag. Let it sit for about 30 minutes. The sticker should wipe clean afterward—but if it doesn`t, gently scrape away any remaining residue with a plastic scraper.
The temperatures that labels are exposed to during use and/or storage after they have been applied can also influence the adhesive bond; any extremes of heat or cold may interfere with an adhesive bond causing the bond to fail and leading to the label peeling up or falling off entirely.
Oils from your hands create a residue that makes your decal peel as well. Also, any dirt or foreign objects on the surface can lead to peeling. Spraying the area with a cleaning spray or rubbing alcohol will allow the adhesive to stick without a problem.
The most commonly used material for outdoor stickers, vinyl is designed to withstand constant exposure to the elements. It can endure for over five years and sometimes even surpass 7-10 years.
Tamper-proof stickers are either printed, made from cut vinyl material, and the main difference is in application or purpose. Stickers are generally stuck on any sized surfaces. Decals may have larger formats and are more likely to be stuck on walls, floors and glass.
Water Resistant Labels, which include Glossy White, Matte, and Clear Labels, are printed on polypropylene material which is finished with a water and oil resistant laminate for long lasting applications.
For the most part, waterproof stickers are usually designed and manufactured using high-quality vinyl. There are two primary types of waterproof vinyl available, which in both instances have the same durable and highly resistant properties: White Waterproof Vinyl. Clear Waterproof Vinyl.
Typically, vinyl stickers and decals are not reusable. With time, any type of decal with back-adhesive has the propensity to lose its adhesive property. Also put into consideration that the moment you remove it, it leaves an awfully undesirable adhesive residue.
Things You`ll Need

If you need to paint, but are unable to remove existing decals from the surface you are working on, paint over the stickers, using the proper techniques. Unfortunately, decals are not suited for adhesion and require specific preparation before they will accept paint.

Whether you`re working with stickers that stick to plastic pretty well or those that just slide right off, you can use decoupage glue to put those stickers permanently in place. Use a decoupage glue designed for use on plastic to seal and optionally adhere the stickers for the best results.
Stickers made out of vinyl and adhesive have a lifespan of up to 5 years while stickers made from cling last up to 6 months. Some specialty materials such as glow in the dark vinyl is not intended for long term outdoor use however it will still last indoors for up to 5 years.
Clean vinyl siding with vinegar and water

You can make a DIY cleaning solution of 30 percent vinegar and 70 percent water to rid your vinyl siding of dirt, stains, and light mildew. In a large bucket, mix 5 cups or 1.2 quarts of vinegar with 11 cups or 2.8 quarts of warm (not hot) water.

In a bowl, mix together white Elmer`s Washable School Glue with an equal amount of white vinegar until you have a thin, milky liquid. Using a small paint brush or a pastry brush, smear the back of the paper sparingly with the glue mixture. Allow it to dry, then apply a second coat, and allow it to dry again.
Or if your decals are looking faded and peeling off, you may wonder if it`s okay to cover them over again with paint. You can paint over RV decals if you have an older, flat-sided vehicle, but in most cases, your best bet is to remove the old decals and then add a fresh coat of paint.

We have a pop-up with the sink that folds down. We need to replace the sink drain from the sink to outside, but the only flex drain hoses that I can find have a hose only 26 inches long. I know that will not be long enough to go from the sink to the outside of the camper.

Do you know if any place I can go to get a sink drain system with a longer hose. The contraption (I don’t know what it is called) at the base of the sink drain has rusted off so that the swivel part of the drain system is gone. We currently have a garden hose connected to the pipe coming directly from the drain, but when we close the camper, it pops off.

Do you have any suggestions?

Thanks

Michele

ANSWER : Hi mj2181,I would say your problem should be solved easily with a hose extension , if you can get the extension and then use it , it should be ok for you and there should be no need to get a sink drain system with a longer hose.An example of an extension hose can be found on this link :- http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/7174401GS/0071/580?sid=SPDx20101101xNXTGHope this helps ,

My swimming pool. I have just had my fifth IC 40 Intellichlor chlorine generator installed in 4 years at a cost of over $900 today. Each one has worked for no more than 8 months. The first three were replaces under three year warranty, the fourth by a factory rep and I bought the fifth today. The first three all failed with Flow Chk PCB error message. The fourth just stopped working on Sunday, no power or lights. A local Pentair warranty person, whom I paid a Service Call, unplugged the unit, opened the small power center cover, showed me the green light indicating that there was power, plugged in a new IC 40 which worked immediately (as did the other four). I asked if I should replace the power center and he said that it’s basically just a transformer and is working fine. We do get occasional power blips that make the clocks on microwaves, etc blink, but I thought that the power center essentially isolates the cell from these. I do have a Florida Power and Light surge protector on the electrical box that brings power into the house. I have now talked to the pool builder, two Pentair warranty repairmen and one factory rep. I am at a loss. They all tell me they have no idea why these units fail after less than a year. This last IC 40 was installed 3/24/2010, version 2.0 and now failed in less than 5 months. Should I replace the power center that the IC 40 plugs into. Any other suggestions. I have been told that this is the best chlorinator. I don’t want to keep replacing units. By the way, each unit had been spotless inside. I keep the water chemicals and salt levels at ideal levels. The units have never worked long enough to get dirty inside. The power center is connected to an Intellitouch control system outside with an indoor control panel. Last time I called Pentair North Carolina and got some smart alec tech person that had no suggestions. Please Help if you can.
ANSWER : I’ve had the same experiance. On my fifth one as well. Fail every year. No idea why.

Need the wire diagram to rewire my Ariens lawnmover to bypass the safety switch. It is Ariens GT-19 model # 931026 Serial # 001463.
Can you help? It is an old Ariens mower but still runs good but now I need to bypass the safety switch in order to run it any longer. The local Ariens dealer said I need to go through the internet and get the wire diagram as they cannot give it to me directly. They told me I needed the wire diagram and the part involved in bypassing the safety switch. Hope this is all the information you need to help me.

Thank you. Roger Fielitz

ANSWER : Here is owner manual:http://apache.ariens.com/manuals/030305C.pdfusually the switch is behind the ignition, sometimes at the N position of gearshift, just look for a switch with one wire coming in & one going out (usually the same color); disconnect the two wires & jumper them together to bypass the switch. Looks like yours has one under the seat.
