Trying to decide if I want to tint all of the windows on my trailer or not. My airconditioner does a great job of keeping the interior cool and our curtains cover well enough that we've had no fading issues so it really comes down to aesthetics. What do you guys and gals think? Tint or not?

Ive tinted ALL my windows,,, never know which way the sun will hit when your parked in different areas,,, And yes it makes a difference with the curtains fading from sunlight,,, Its saved my shades and curtains,

No doubt the tint would save the curtains, what I meant was that the curtains have provided enough protection for the interior appointments such as counter tops, couch fabric ect . After our first diy curtains were bleached with in a year, the wife has used a liner on upholstery grade fabric for the other two sets. The liner and heavier fabric have held up much better to the southern sun, last set lasted about 10 years. I'm probably going to tint them all just to help keep the sun from being the alarm clock.

Hi Drew, this is a question that I hope you can help me with. I have a 1977 Argosy 22 ft. We are having a leak problem. At the back of the trailer on the right side is a black hard overflow tube right in front of the sewer drain, it's leaking. It leaks weather we are hooked up to city water, or are using the water holding tank. We tried turning on and off the water shut off valves, tried just about everything. Have you come across this problem in your Argosy? Our driveway isn't level, could that be part of the problem? Any ideas? Thanks Janet Cunningham

Hi Drew, please see the comment I left for you at the bottom of this page. Thanks


My trailer has two different drains in the rear. The first drain is for ac condensate. It is located  behind  the rear most axle in the wheel well area, hangs a good 6 inches down and is shapped like a "J". If the ac is running this line is leaking. The second drain is through the belly pan but only extends out an inch or so. This drain is connected to the two faucet flush valves located in my bathroom closet mounted to the floor. One of the faucet valves is for the hotwater tank drain and the other is to drain interior plumbing lines. While it has never affected my trailer either of those valves could wear out and cause a leak through the second drain. When you are running your water pump from the fresh water tank does the pump cycle on and off constantly?


Tint the whole thing it does look awesome
