Hi, I'm Phil Bridges, owner of Straight Arrow Repair. Ever want to know how a repairman fixes things? Well come with me, and I'll show you how I solve problems. Let's make things better together.

You might have a unique situation like this one where they have put a wall that is brick and block. I need more caulk. Anyway, we're putting PVC up this is five sixtenths by five inches. Pure plastic. We're counter sinking it with a bit so the screws don't stick out to cover up areas like this where animals are starting to try to get in.

Move this.

Because you see, there's every four foot every two foot. There's a place where the...

"Sixteen inches."

And right here, right here and here. He says sixteen inches.

"That's what I measure between them."

And we counter sink it. Then we take screw gun and put the screws to it.

"And caulk over the top."

Cameraman's got to get the screws.

All right. So we finished this belt. To cover up all the rotted Masonite and we're trying to stay on a budget but it's still quite expensive because of the PVC is very expensive and it's labor intensive.

So it's a way that you can make yours look better. It is paintable, we painted it, or sealed it with paintball silicone. So if you see, down through there where there was holes and spray foam to fill the holes is not a problem for the animals to get into now. So hopefully that would be something if you need to. You could do that as five inches high.

No, it's actually six. So I hope you figure out something from it.

This is Phil Bridges, if you like what you saw and think it might be helpful to somebody else, push that like button and let other people know what you and I know, and we'll work together toward making a brighter future. By the way, we're not Amera-Can'ts, we're Americans. See you next time.

Hi, I'm Phil Bridges, owner of Straight Arrow Repair. Ever want to know how a repairman fixes things? Well come with me, and I'll show you how I solve problems. Let's make things better together.

I am going to show you a little tip slash trick that I do on occasion that often. Sometimes you get a strange situation. I will show you that situation. And so this is a two by four that will end up being support for the floor. So it's sort of like a floor joists. The floor joists we have our seven and a quarter.

So what I've done is a 2x4 and a 2x4 underneath it. So it's seven and eight. Thing is, I'm sitting on top of the frame, so I with insulation and things like that, it's going to be way more than an eighth, but it should be fitting in there tight. And I'll show you the situation. Pretty strange.

It's like they run a long one there. Anyway. Right here is the area that I don't have any support and I'm going to put support. Now, understand your frame on the inside it's about three foot three, three foot six on the inside wall. So the outside wall will be about four foot maybe less. So, what I've done is this is going to sit on top of the frame if I can get it in there

So what I'm going to do is set it on top of the frame.

"Here let me get in there. So I can video it for you."

So the frame is right there. That's the frame, steel frame. And I will have to cut this bottom piece off a little bit because it's not the floor here slopes down. So it's not true seven and a quarter, and it does the whole all this area all the way down for whatever reason. Probably because the wall sits on in between to joists. I'll cut it down, slip it in, and then I'll put screws right here.

"Like you do this."

Every six inches. It's pretty far pretty long. So it's going to go almost a foot that way, and we can ge a bunch of screws in it. If I wanted to I can go even longer, but you can do that. Even say if I went from that frame to this frame, I could do the same thing then that gives me support in. And by the way, this area right here will not likely get a whole lot of traffic on beyond the fact that this have three quarter plywood.

But because they'll come in and go straight over to the sink slash, they don't walk alongside the wall people, the shoulders, everything they end up, we'll end up walking on this floo

This is the complete video of them putting together all the raisedbed gardening boxes. We quickly put together the boxes in one morning before they left on a job. I can't wait to get vegetables growing in them.

The guys are building several raised garden beds out of recycled metal. We left them at 36". The plan is to fill them about 3/4s of the way with local yard waste we can get free from the recycling center.

You might check with your area recycling center. If they don't have mulch you can pick up, you could try calling local tree service guys. Many times you can get mulch cheap from them. I'm also filling the bottom of the bins with trees and brush from cleaning up the park.

We wanted to do a video with all the garden beds being done, because with each one they learn new tips and tricks.

The material cost for each diy garden bed would be less than $100 if you had to buy all the material, but I bet if you looked around you'd be able to find someone with metal they want to get rid of.

#anyonecanmake #elevatedgarden #gardenbed #raisedbeds #gardenbeds #gardening

We are using metal left over from roofing and skirting jobs to build out raised garden beds. We kept them at 36", plan to fill about 3/4 with mulch we can get from recycled yard waste.

The guys are putting together as many beds as they have material for. They learned from the first one to put the first 3 pieces of metal together and then make the box with the fourth side.

This is Phil's wife. I have to say I LOVE how these have turned out. I don't have to bend over to weed or take care of the plants once we get them filled. We ended up with 4, and he plans on making me at least 2 more.

Something a little different today. We made these above ground garden beds from metal for roofing; we used rake and corner on the edges. So we make the entire bed out of metal. The beds will be 8'x3'x3' with a middle divider.

Hi, I'm Phil Bridges, owner of Straight Arrow Repair. Ever want to know how a repairman fixes things? Well come with me, and I'll show you how I solve problems. Let's make things better together.

Now, this gives quite a lot of instructions on how to get your floor level. In this case, we already had that done. How to get is so that it's the floor is level so that when this sits, it has a slope that goes that way. And into the drain. It's also recommended that you not use putty tape, but silicone here and then we've located where the studs are.

In this case, mobile homes are pretty sparse and a pretty small. So you have to be pretty careful what I've done is look around for the staples, happen to be a stud here, stud here, and then I could see a staple and see a staple right there. So we drill holes where that, those studs are and then we'll put screws in it.

That's how flimsy the walls are this is supposed to have backer-board over it, but we're not going to do that because we already have paneling to fasten to and in that case, again, it has instructions on how to install the backer board and then the, the plastic over it. We're going to use.

If you were doing a ceramic tile, would do the hardy backer and then your do your would do your ceramic tile and it would run, you're hardy backer, would go over the top of this lip and the water would run and then the ceramic tile would go on that and it all run inside there is how we do the base, the floor. You'll have to follow the instructions before you put the drain in.

We've already done all that to make sure the floor was level supported properly. If there's screws. And this thing is not moving and it will be walking that is for the Allen and Roth base. There you go, guys.

This is Phil Bridges, if you like what you saw and think it might be helpful to somebody else, push that like button and let other people know what you and I know, and we'll work together toward making a brighter future. By the way, we're not Amera-Can'ts we're Americans. See you next time.

We're cleaning out the drip edge on a mobile home. Some call this a gutter, but it actually helps to hold the roof to the mobile home. We're doing it to get ready to seal the roof, but it would be a good idea to either hire someone or clean them yourself about every year.

Transcript:
So one of the things we need to do is clean out the gutter, so it sort of works and it keeps all that trash from being in our way when we seal that edge where that gutter fastens to roof. So in this case, a lot of times I use a big screwdriver or a pipe or something, but this is a handle that works pretty good for brushes.

So I'm just pushing that along and then we'll sweep the excess, that gets on the roof off. But you, you need to get all of that out so it'll flow good. I've seen it where that trees growing in there where an acorn fell in and started growing from the water that kind of stuck around. It wouldn't be a bad idea to have somebody clean this out for you once a year.

Then you need to do this roof sealant every couple of years, you need to check it. This is what we're going to do. And then we'll show you what we start doing next.

So what we're using is this called asphalt, cement for roofs, all weather, roofs, cement. Now it's getting harder to used to be just it was called tar, but that has changed. And so this this is from Lowe's is made by blackjack. We want to make sure it's stiff not something liquid like. I have made the mistake of getting you want to be able to have something that's stiff and it will get hard with time.

But you will have that elastomeric stuff so you protect it from drying up and cracking like tar does when it gets old and hard. So I thought I'd let you know. See you.

#MobileHomeRepair, #MobileHomeImprovement, #MobileHomeRoofLeak

Hi, have you caught me looking up there's a roof leak here. So, this is uh evidence of that the sink was clogged up so the roof leaked down here throughout of that. I guess uh then we got you know all this area here it's all damaged the repair that we're going to do is over here. I don't know why this is leaking like it is. Maybe it's just running over here on top of the plastic that they run through there. But we're going to go up there and fix it. So, eventually we'll have to fix all the drywall in here too. Or somebody will.

This is what we do. See you.

Here we are installing the water heater we check in another video. This is part 2 in this series.

#HowToCheckWaterHeater, #CheckingElectricWaterHeater, #DIYHomeRepair

Guess you snuck up on me. Guess what? We're going to work on a water heater today. Supposedly there's no hot water. So first thing, we're going to check and we're going to take this cover here off with a screw, that top element is usually. That's not a good sign right there. Well, what? That rusty line going down through there.

Anyway, we're going to take this cover off and we're going to pull the insulation and such off that and we'll check resistance after we make sure we have the power off. So what we'll do is we'll take a test to make sure we have power off but John, don't turn power off till we know we have power here. First thing we're going to see if we have power.

If we don't...

"I was just going to see where the power was at."

I think it's behind the door, right there.

"The door behind the door."

Behind this door they hide it in mobile homes, usually behind the bedroom door so anyway, here's where we're going.

All right? So what we're doing right now is although we have other situations if you notice the water, we're checking the voltage and we got no voltage there. So we're going to go to the, is that on DC or AC.

"So voltage on. And so this is the good one so."

OK, so we're now checking on the thermostat. See, there's no voltage there. So the breaker is off or the reset button is off is a reset?

"It has to be the reset button because nothing is off here."

Clay. There's a button on that temperature gauge, the red one. It's a reset button.

"Right here?"

See that red button you get voltage to that?

"Sounds like it's burning."

Listen to me, check the voltage where the wires connect to it.

You got voltage there?

"Yeah."

OK.

"This thing sounds like it's burning."

Well, it's probably tripped because running water on it. See all that water running down, we could get shocked. Now, let's figure out where the water's coming from here. Look, on
