Replacing the LED strips on my Vizio TV and the reflective shield got a couple of tears in it while removing. How can I repair without replacing?


Are you talking about the metalized tape that they put on? If so its not a huge deal, its there as a RFI shield, just try to smooth it down the best you can and if it wont stick just use a little tape over the top of it to hold it down. Another thing i use a lot to fix the shielding tape is the aluminum heating duct seam tape, its not duct tape, its an actual metal aluminum tape with adhesive on it for sealing up heating ducts. Most home repair stores sell it as premium aluminum duct sealing tape.

Speaker wire sheath has split


There are a number of items you could use to cover (repair) the exposed wire. I agree the quickest repair would be to use electrical tape, everyone has it at home but I don't find it very durable. The easiest, most durable, waterproof, and coolest solution would be to use Bondic
Bondic The World First Liquid Plastic Welder Not Glue

I found it the other week at my Redmond's Home Hardware store and I keep finding things to use it on. It has a precise applicator and the flow of material is very controlled so it allows for very tidy repairs.

You could also use liquid electrical tape, it's messier but it will stick better than regular electrical tape

Frozen hot water pipe


on campers, rvs and mobile homes the plumbing is under the floor but above the underpinning..it cant be seen..make a skirting from tarps or some material you can attach to the unit between the trailer and the ground.. then you have to get a barn heater and blow hot air under the trailer and turn the heat on inside the unit..once the water starts to flow .. you need to drain it completely out with air pressure and put antifreeze (staight) into the system..the red stuff..this will take a few hours to do.. use the pressure to test for broken pipes..DO NOT EXCEED 40 PSI during testing..if any of the pipes are broken they will need to be replaced before you use it again..if you are using it now, keep the skirting on the unit and back itup with some substantial plywood panels with insulation attatched to the backside ..the entire bottom of the unit will need skirted..mobile home supplies places carry interlocking panels for this pupose.. good luck..in an emergency you can use a hot air blowdryer to heat up pipes or pipe heating tapes or pipe insulation.. (or these noodle toys that kids used in pools..)

Coleman furnace runs a lot


You did not indicate the year or size of the mobile home, but, having lived in several in cold Michigan, here are some things.
Be sure all the windows are well sealed.
At first, I used to put a strong clear plastic sheet over the insides, and tape these in place.
Later, I bought foam insulation board at a lumber yard and cut pieces to fin the window openings, and taped them in.
When it is really cold, feel the walls, the floor, and the ceiling.
If you find cold to the touch, you are losing heat there.
If your floors are cold, put insulating panels and skirting around the bottom of the trailer.
If your extreme cold lasts for months, some people consider putting a small electric heater under the trailer that is temperature controlled.
Some people do a "roof-over" by setting poles or posts alongside the trailer and adding an additional roof above the trailer.
That step would enable you to add insulation above the top if your ceiling is cold.
God bless your efforts.

Can not go down deep enough below the freeze line without hitting solid rock. Is there anything out there to insulate the line without costing me a fortune...


when you say "insulate the line" I assume you mean water line. the only thing that you can do is to use "heat tape" and then over that you would place fiberglass insultation and silver tape to keep the insulation on the tubing. If you live in a climate that isn't too cold and has a short season, the built in thermostat on the heat tape will prevent it from "costing you a fortune" mobile home tubing is often insulated this way and its not very expensive to maintain an above freezing temp.

Sounds like a lousy job. Best tape is alluminum. You can pick it up at Home Depot or Lowes. If the tubes are flex duct be sure to pull back the outer insulation and tape just the inner lining

Need to remove DOT tape.


A heat gun (careful, some heat guns will remove paint!), or 1200 or higher wattage hair drier held over the tape while sliding a putty knife under the paint is the best method. The heat softens the adhesive and makes the tape easier to remove without damaging the paint. You'll still likely have to go back with lighter fluid and a cotton cloth to remove the adhesive still stuck to the paint. Don't use acetone or paint thinners, they attack the paint!

A/C unit not blowing enough air.


Do you change the filter regularly? And if you haven't changed it but maybe every year that is the problem. Your a-coil is plugged up and full of the stuff the filter is suppose to catch.

That is one possibility the other is and I have seen this more then once the duct work under the mobile home has come loose and is just pouring the air under there. Let me know what you find. ken
