RE: This cain't be normal behavior...

You really should write a book titled 'the tales of an old fart'. You would have people laughing so hard they would be crying through the whole book. Excellent writer and story teller. I love reading your posts. I actually started laughing so hard during the kitty poo post that I could barely breathe.

RE: Beautiful

I love the new look 100 times more than the paneling, it's a very refreshing *new* look and cozy paint color. Has the paint flaked, scratched, or chipped at all since painted ? I painted paneling once when I was younger - without the KILZ or washing first.. God what a horrible mess that was lol The ...

DGAT070BDD - Coleman Evcon

Furnace: Coleman Evcon Gas Furnace Model Number: DGAT070BDD Serial Number: 950741195 Problem #1: When the heater turns off, it usually turns right back on within 1 - 3 seconds. When it does this, it can cycle this way all day (costs us more money and is annoying). It seems to do it more during the ...

Furnace - Short Constant Cycles (digital thermostat)

I read the manual I bought from Mark, and read the furnace section in the forums. So, I understand that the possible 'fix' for constant short furnace cycles, however when I took the cover panel off my digital thermostat on the wall - there was no sliding switch to adjust the numbers which would typi...

I also live in Michigan and have gone thru the same crazy weather cycle. The condensation forms because you have single pane windows. All you can do is change window to insulated glass, add storm windows or add plastic window treatment for winter weather. Not only is condensation forming on the gla...

RE: Lightning rod for a MH?

Hi Wildirish, Just a tip I'm passing on from my PC repair man, he told me that when it storms to not just unplug the electrical items in the home, but to also make sure the actual plug is at least 2-3 feet away from the outlet you unplugged it from. He said the surge can jump from the outlet to the ...

RE: How to clean vinyl siding on MH?

Welp, I used the Moldex and it worked great. I did notice without the Moldex that the bulk of the black mold looking stuff would scrub off.. but the Moldex took it ALL off, and with a lot less scrubbing time (or spent energy). I made sure to keep the garden hose pointed down when I rinsed, thanks fo...

RE: Tub and shower discolored

I know our sunroof (?) is in our master bathroom, and wow that sun really beats down into the restroom during bright days. It fades my decor (pictures & towels), but makes a great spot for the cat who loves to sleep in the sun. I'm going to try and fit some milky white plastic up there someday (...

Re: RE: Can you tell if this is OSB ? Paintable ?

At our Lowe's and Home Depot there are bins of discontinued rolls of sheet vinyl. Average cost 50.00. Not sure what room this floor is in b...

Can you tell if this is OSB ? Paintable ?

Hi again, Can anyone tell by these photos, what type of flooring I have? I mean, if it's OSB, particle board, MDF ? I don't think it's plywood, because it's super smooth yet there is a 'fine sand dust' feeling to the touch. Plus it has those little strips of pressed wood chips in it. But they are wa...

Re: RE: How to clean vinyl siding on MH?

I bought one of those brushes for Hubby to use, it works good but he says the water runs right down the wand and down his arms and into his shirt... he hates the feeling. Soooo, what he does is mix about a half gallon of bleach with a lot of water in a big storage tub, stirs in some Tide, and he di...
