Re: Leveling a MH on concrete block perimeter [pictures]

Hi there, No advice to give, as I have skirting, but I noticed that it appears that your floor joists run lengthwise? I don't see many posts here with a frame like ours (1988 Astro), so am interested in what's been done to your place. Where are you located? That will help others who know more give y...

Muttering under my breath….

OK, this is the THIRD post in the past few minutes - the other two disappeared when I hit "preview" and went into the great unreachable beyond. I just hit "preview" on this and it showed up, what the hey? Is anyone else having trouble with the site? Well, I'll go ahead and try ye...

Re: Few questions before I relevel our home

Hey Ponch, How did it go, if you got to it? We're looking at releveling our mh as well, and were getting ourselves worked up to do so when I had to replace our front P.T. stairs. I'd love to hear more about your experience with the leveling with one jack, angle irons (what are they and how do I get ...

Re: Leveling questions

Thanks for all the help everyone, we definitely have a water runoff problem that we knew ahead of time about when we bought this place this past October. There is a huge hill behind us, and mountains behind it. We didn't have any runoff to speak of this Spring because we didn't really have winter sn...

Re: Leveling questions

Thanks Gregg - wow, ok I don't think we're going to find the drop is "that" bad (knock on wood)! I didn't know whether or not there was a cut-off point where you were too bent to bother or the like. We just got a professional quality hose at Costco, so have that. I was under the impression...

Leveling questions

Hi Everyone, I've been checking up on what everyone's been up to off and on - some great remodels going on - and now that Spring has hit the Northeast, we're gearing up to take on some projects that need doing around here. Our trailer is a 1988 Astro "Country Manor" and has the lengthwise-...

Re: PEX (plumbing) questions

Mdnagel, I'm hoping you will/are taking lots of photos to share? I'm really interested in PEX as well, and am planning this year to do something like DCdiva did and bring our plumbing up into our single-wide and use PEX all the way. We have to repair/replace a good part of our floors, so might as we...

Re: Glazing or color washing

Hey Debi, I know you posted awhile ago, but if you see this, I think if you used something to really clean the walls (like TSP or the like), you should be able to paint over the current paper with color. Sounds like a great idea, letting the pattern show through - would you please post pictures if y...

Got your photos, nice job! The new windows look so much stronger and really add to your place. Definitely going the regular window route, then, thanks!

Uploading photos for posts and avatar?

Hi folks,
I see that some folks have their photos uploaded as their avatar and can post photos as well, but I've cruised around a bit and I don't see how I go about doing that. Help?
Thanks!

Re: New to Mobile Homes and to this forum

Thanks for the welcome and reply, Greg! I have been all over the web looking at how folks are doing window replacement, and I think I'll start with just one window, conventional type and see how it goes. I had forgotten about the kerosene Monitors - I had a propane one once and loved it. I do love t...

New to Mobile Homes and to this forum

Hi Folks, Just ordered the Mobile Home Repair Manual, as we're in the process of buying a 1989 Astro "Country Manor" model single wide in a state-run park. The place is small, the estimated square footage is 784. The house inspection revealed a rotten subfloor under the bathroom, due to an...
