General Campfire Discussion / East Coast Dutch Oven Gathering 2017
« Last post by hvac1877 on Yesterday at 07:53:37 PM »
After reluctantly taking 2016 off due to some unforeseen logistics issues, we are back! The 2017 East Coast Dutch Oven Gathering has a new date, a new location, and promises to be the best one yet. The date is about a month earlier than we used to have it, so hopefully the weather will be a little nicer than in past years. We are also excited to be holding the event in beautiful Codorus State Park, in Hanover, PA. The park is really on board to help us out with the event, and want to see this partnership grow.

The East Coast DOG is open to anyone who has an interest in Dutch oven cooking, regardless of your skill level. We encourage everyone to come and join us for a fun day of learning, cooking, meeting some great people and of course eating. Whether you are a seasoned veteran, or have never touched a black pot before, there is always something for you at the East Coast DOG. We will be having Dutch oven classes, a one pot cook-off, and a potluck dinner at the end of the day. We are also not far from Gettysburg, Hershey, and Lancaster, if you would like to do some sightseeing. If you arenít sure you are ready to cook, the public is welcome to come and talk with any of the cooks participating. So bring your iron, and cook up some goodness. It is going to be a great event, and we hope you will join us. www.eastcoastdog.net

We're looking at getting a canoe (apx 12-14 ft) and are wondering what we would need if we want to carry it on our pop-up camper and/or can we get brackets to use on our Toyota Highlander? TIA

Pop-Up Campers / How To Do A Pop Up Camper Roof Rebuild
« Last post by deann90 on May 26, 2017, 02:43:53 PM »
There will be times your pop up camper roof needs rebuilding due to cracks from small accidents or extreme weather conditions. It can be inevitable at times, especially if you use it a lot (or have had it in stock for quite some time).

Either way, it's important to know how to properly rebuild and fix the cracks to have a working roof to keep you protected and warm while camping. Follow these simple steps to rebuild your camper roof


1. Prepare Yourself And Materials
It's time to put on your safety mask, gloves, and goggles. The materials are a toxic, so it's best to wear safety equipment so as not to inhale or get in contact with the fumes.

2. Drill Holes
While this may seem counter-intuitive, drilling holes on the cracks will help keep it from spreading. Drill holes on the cracks with your drill.

3. Roughen Roof
Using a metal file, scrape the roof on and around the cracks. This will help let the filler material stick.


4. Clean Crack Area
With ABS cleaning solvent, clean the cracked areas. This will also help the filler material stick better. It will be easier applying it when there is no dust or sediment around the area. You can also wipe some big particles beforehand.


5. Preparing The Filler
Add one part ABS powder and methyl ethyl ketone powder. Mix it together in a glass container, stir it until it is combined well. Let it sit for a few minutes and use it once it's gooey.

Instead of using the powder mixture, you can also opt to use a rubberized leak stopper. Using the old paintbrush, spread the leak stopper evenly around the cracks and seams.

Cover an inch extra on the sides while sealing vents to avoid slow leaks. Spread it thinly but wide. You can also opt to cover the whole roof to prevent it from leaking, not just the seams and cracks.

If your roof suffers from bigger tears, then fiberglass repair tape is a recommended solution. After spreading the leak stopper or tar, add fiberglass screen tape on the hole, covering it whole.

6. Apply The Filler
Put the mixture on the cracks. You will need to work very quickly, as the mixture dries fast. Add the mixture carefully, and if it spills around other areas, wipe it off quickly to avoid it from damaging other parts of your roof.


And you're done rebuilding and repairing your pop up camper roof! Let it dry for a day or so before you can use it on your next camping trip. This will assure less chance of it breakage or leaking.


You may need help, depending on your skill level when it comes to DIY projects and repair. Either way, it doesn't take much time, so long as you exert effort and follow the instructions.

What's great about this is that you won't need any prior knowledge when repairing the roof. So long as the cracks are nicely filled and done neatly, you will be able to finish this task within the day.


Another tip: You may have wanted to rebuild your camper roof yourself to avoid costs. Try checking the camper's warranty to see if the manufacturer can repair it for you, as they can do it for free.
You'll save time, effort, and money from doing the job yourself. Contact the manufacturer for warranty details.
