Re: Simple Question.......trying to repair toilet tank leak!

The fitting in the shutoff looks like a sharkbite style (there are a few different brand names). I would keep an eye on it and plan on changing it to prevent problems.

Re: Simple Question.......trying to repair toilet tank leak!

It is a fitting to go from plastic tube to pipe thread on the bottom of the fill valve. Try tightening the nut slightly and see it that stops the leak. if not shut the water off and remove the nut. there should be a flat rubber washer that goes between the adapter & fill valve that may be leaking.

Re: Painting front door

Preparation is the most important part of the job.
Follow the directions on the can, prep. time usually takes longer than painting.

Re: Replacing Piers on 1973 Mobile Home

I personally don't like that (pointed) style of pier, I would rather have a full block. An inspection should only take an hour or two to do (plus travel time to be fair) I would say 6 hrs should be plenty of time the change & relevel ALL of the piers, unless they are adding a tie down system. The pr...

Re: Replacing Piers on 1973 Mobile Home

Without pictures it is impossible to say.

To add pictures use the "full editor" and add the files. you may have to resize them if they are too large.

Re: Crawl Space Venting

The code states 1sq/ft of ventilation per every 150sq/ft of floor space. I don't think I have ever seen a formula for power vented. During warm weather I don't think you can have too much ventilation. For leaks, all you can do is a close inspection or pressurize the system with a gauge and watch it....

Re: Leak detector on water meter spins back and forth

I would contact the park and ask them. I have never had a submeter.

Re: Moving my HW tank outside.

I can't see any reason as far as federal HUD regulations, but there may be local codes involved so check with your code officer first.

Re: Metal exterior wall/ ceiling panels?

It is hard to say without seeing them, but they sound like the panels may have been some type of kit addition pre made just assemble on site. you could try some low expansion foam if you can get to the void.
Pictures need to be resized to post here, most picture programs have that feature.

Re: Buying used - Single wide vs Double wide

I say PLAN because one thing leads to another, open up the floor and you end up with wall damage. open up belly you usually find insulation and possibly floor & rim joist damage. I have seen many people go in to do one thing and end up finding MUCH more and end up dumping a pile of money into it. Wh...

Re: Buying used - Single wide vs Double wide

It would need to be releveled at the least. Plan on a total overhaul, with new under belly and heat ducts.

Re: two wire thermostat question

If you have 2 wires now any 2 wire should work. I think the colors are labeled on the back of the thermostat.

Re: Buying used - Single wide vs Double wide

I think the problem would lie with the installer. If you have a quality installation on a quality foundation the problems would be minimal. A cheap hack job with the home just set on blocks would be more prone to problems.
