RE: Air conditioner supply shortage?

On our 06 Outlook, the generator is an Onan 4000 KY......, Which I think was pretty much Winnebago's standard for c-class of that vintage. What's happening to cut the generator off? Generator still runs, but trips the breaker ON THE GENERATOR! Maybe just a weak breaker on the generator. On mine, the breaker started tripping on a heavier load and finally could not be reset, the breaker handle just flips from side to side, no tension. The generator runs fine but no power because of the breaker. For 12+ years, the Onan would run everything in the coach. Then the A/C started tripping the generator breaker. The Air Conditioning unit still works great on shore power, kept my interior at 70F this past July (90-100F), no shade. Ken

RE: Is this a problem?

Interesting. Maybe you could visit the dealer and have a look (pictures) of similar units/roofs, someone on the forum with the same unit roof could check. If other units are smooth, it might be time to talk to the dealer service dept or check with the manufacturer. Ken

RE: Back cushion support in the forward dining area,mods

I would help if you could post a picture of the area your dealing with. On our old hybrid one end of the dinette was the end wall of the trailer and the other was part of the dinette box. In our current c-class, the dinette the area is a box with supporting end walls from the floor up. Actually the front, (behind the passenger seat) has a hinged cutout so that the passenger seat can recline. Ken

RE: Minimum gate opening width needed for TT parking........

Double check your clearances, clearance after the gate is opened to the eave and how high up is the eave. If it is a straight run at it, should be doable. Don't forget the mirrors on the tow vehicle, they probably will have to be folded in until clear. When looking at the trailers, remember that the box width stated is NOT the total width of the complete unit. It may state 7'6, 8'0 or even 8'6". (102"). Our RV is 8'6" wide plus awning on one side and slide toppers on the other, thereby requiring a clearance of almost 9'. Ken

RE: Theater seating sofa malfunction

Those are usually pretty easy to fix. Flip it upside down and see what came loose. Since they are new the Mfg. should agree to ship any needed parts for free. Good luck. X2 I had a similar problem with a lazy-boy at home. Called Lazy-Boy and they mailed the part out, no charge. Could be something as simple as a nut or bolt not tighten properly when assembled. The hardest part would be taking it out and turning it over. Posting the make of the theater seating sofa, may get a response from an owner with the same specific problem. Ken

RE: Best quality 4 season trailer

For a RV designated as 4 season by a manufacturer, it would depend on what they consider the 4th season WINTER. Winter in Florida, Washington. Minnesota etc. Heater tanks and water systems in some 4 season trailers maybe good for a couple of nights at 20F, minus 20F at night and daytime highs of 10F, Totally different story. Furnace, propane, batteries?? An RV designated as 'light', generally has less insulation or none for the underside, plumbing etc. Single pane windows. Ken

RE: Travel trailer lengths

You would have to read the fine print in each manufacturer. The model number maybe close or 2 or 3 feet different. Some manufacturers may use the actual box length rounded up or down. Some may use the tongue hitch to bumper or spare tire. If in the specs, it should say exactly what points they are measuring. If a fifth wheel, another story. Ken

RE: How long does a 18lb propane tank last you?

To quote my neighbour "Well you answered your own question complete with variables that no one can calculate to any degree of accuracy. Do yourself a favour and take along a spare 20lb'er and keep track of your usage" I have a handheld baggage scale, weight the tank full, write it on the side of the tank. When completely empty, weigh and record that weight. Any weights in between will give you a reasonably accurate guess of how much used or left. Ken

RE: RV carport/shelter

I just measured our 29b and it is 9'6" from the ground to the extrusion at the top of the side. Then there is the sharp curve where the roof meets the sidewall. + 3 1/2", then the fridge vent on the sloped roof + 4". So just in from the side I'm over 10'. Don't forget the ladder going up and over, mine is on the back but realtivley close to the side, max air covers. I would go with a 12' wall, maybe 11' IF the framework went to a minimum clearance of 12'+. That would be the minimum if you are backing under from a level driveway. Ken

RE: Melting wires

Improperly tightened wire connections. Loose causing poor connections generating a lot of heat. Dangerous. If you're not 100% comfortable working with 120 volt AC wiring, get a professional to check it out. Ken

RE: Flashlights

Harbor Freight specials, even have one hanging on the linen closet door handle at home, just in case I can't find the cell phone. Ken

RE: Disconnect Power When Using Generator?

"With all the home wiring jobs discussed on RV.net it is a big unknown if all RVs still meet code to isolate the cord. For a properly wired and maintained RV there is no issue." X2. They Probably had an issue umpteen years ago that fed power back into the park grid. Ken

RE: UPDATED - Ran over Gator

"You were a couple hundred feet too close for emergency stop" Not necessarily, the truck could have been in a different lane and threw the gator into another driving lane. I have seen worse, the gator being thrown up and taking out the windshield of a car. Ken

RE: Leaking pressure relief valve.

Before replacing, try 'cleaning' it. There could be some debris in the seal area. With the water cool/cold but under pump pressure, flip it open and closed a couple of times, this might be enough to clean it and stop the leak, also a good time to turn the pump off and re-establish the air bubble. Cost $zero. If that doesn't work, time to replace. Ken

RE: Hooks on my counters

If they are glued on, two sided tape etc. Use a length of fishing line and use a sawing action to cut through the adhesive. Tie each end of the line to some type of holder, eye hooks or something easy to hold and not cut your fingers. Left over glue residue, will be another project to clean. Ken

RE: Newbie - Class A or Class C

How many grandchildren do you have and realistically how many will travelling with you at any one time. The Coachman c-class will most likely have the cab over bunk for 2 extra sleeping positions. Both units will the couch and dinette for sleeping as well. Get the floor plan that works best for you, slides IN and OUT. Personally,after owning a c-class, I now would go with an A. More living space, seating choices when the cab seats are swivelled. Driving, pros, cons, personal preference for each, I might take a day or 2 to get used to either. Both units are the same width, approximately the same height. According to the model number , the A is about 3 ft longer, not much when driving on the highway. Ken

RE: How do you know how much you can TRULY pull?

See if Toyota oh and small print (*,1,2) etc with that tow rating. I know Honda did at one time. 5000lbs if it was a boat or flat bed trailer, but only 3500 if a box or travel trailer. IMHO, you shouldn't have a problem with a 4000lb gvwr trailer, even the ideal tongue weight 400+ lbs should not eat into the Highlander cargo carrying capacity. Enjoy your RV Ken
