There are extensions/browser helper objects that can "replace" correct banner ads/sponsors with nefarious ones.  That is another possibility why you saw an ad that nobody else is seeing.

Wouldn't hurt to run a malwarebytes.org scan of your computer.

Bill,
I carry a spare used pump that I removed when upgrading to a higher volume pump, but even though I have installed it on two different coaches to help out fellow Beavers, even though I have carried it for years, I have never used it on my coach. A complete failure on a water pump is so rare that it is not worth the space and weight for the average owner to carry one. If the check valve or shaft seal start leaking, you will have enough time to get a new pump then.

Bill,
There is no easy answer to your question. Usually there is a layer of dense foam with the adhesive attached that will pull off of the weather-strip, but if you are careful, you can get most of it to come off with the rubber weather strip. Any of the foam strip that is left attached can be removed with a plastic scrapper or just by rolling it off with your thumb. After all of the foam strip is removed, you can clean the surface with a good body shop grade solvent like Acrysol.

I keep a spare pump in my Amazon Wish List. If I ever need it I can move it to the Cart and have it in two days (or less).

Does anyone carry a spare pump with them?  I'm thinking that may not be such a bad idea.  Just wondering if that's a reasonable thing to do or if I'm just a paranoid newbie :-)

Hi Gerald,
  Thanks for your advice.  I don't want to try to replace that inboard seal unless it's absolutely necessary. 

  Do you have any recommendations on products to use to clean/prep surface to accept the new adhesive on the seal?

Thanks, so I should be able to just pop the old track out? I like the hdp idea .. I knew anything having to do with cesana is outrageously priced since it’s out of production  but $300 for that plastic? I figured well over a hundred but that’s just crazy! I read somewhere where someone was trying to sell the glass door for close to 3 grand !
When I get back where I have access to tools I’ll tear it apart .. it’ll be nice to not have it bounce on the broken track and pop the bottom tracks out!

Jerry,

On my last rig my water pump refused to pump after storing it dry for a few cold winter months.  I went straight to the nearest RV store, bought a pump, replaced it and all was good. 

Curious about why the old one quit, I took it apart.  It looked fine.  I put it back together, hooked it to a spare battery and it ran perfect.   Internet reading suggest there was a small piece of something in it that interfered with the pumping diaphragm.

I now have a spare for me or anyone I'm camped next to that has a failure!

Depending on your computer, chosen web browser and ad blocker settings, "banner ads" will show up.  It is one of the ways that Google makes their living!  So, when you are looking at the BAC website or any other website you may see ads that have never been reviewed by anyone in the BAC.

For what it's worth, as a confirmed camera junkie, I get lots of camera ads.

From Beaver Coach sales you can purchase a new plastic track, when we did it cost very close to $300.00 and that was 5 years ago. Now after getting it we made our own from a piece of HDPE material (high density plastic). The piece from BCS had a lip that caught to hold it in place. Ours did not so we used Lexel to hold in in place and it is still functioning as of today.

You can buy an entire 4'x8' sheet from Menards that is the HDPE, only it is in black instead of cream color. Cut it on a table saw and bend it to fit curve very easily. Lexel and hold in with clamps for a week or so and it is rolling again smoothly. The bottom also stays hooked when rolling or traveling.
