RE: Dinghy Towing guide

I clicked on link, and it does not indicated what year of CRV it is for. From the diagram of the car, it is for a much older, before 2011 models and the fact that a manual transmission is available. Our 2012 has different instructions and they changed again beginning in 2015 when the CVT transmission was introduced. That link only applies to certain years of CRVs. Ken

RE: Phoenix to Toronto, May 2020

I would agree with I70-I69 to Port Huron/Sarnia border crossing and then 402-401 to Toronto. 402 and 401 are virtually the same as any U.S. interstate highway. Once you get with a 30 mile radius of Toronto, highways are like any big city highway, busy and crowded about 20 hours a day. Going through Niagara, longer going around the east end of Lake Erie and you still get bad traffic on QEW highway. Ken

RE: Wierd bathroom water problem

The first thing I'd check is to see if there's a check valve in the outlet of the water heater. If you have just one valve to change to winterize, you probably have a check valve. The check valve has a small disk that blocks the flow of water back into the water heater. That disk is plastic/nylon and is held in place with a spring. I've seen several of them come loose from the spring and lodge in the outlet of the water heater. It's hard to get to the back of the water heater to get at the check valve. There's no maintenance. You must replace it. I found a replacement with a metal disk right next to ones with the plastic disk. Choose carefully. HOT water works....OP has issue with COLD to bathroom sink and toilet OP.... Tolet sprayer works (as desgin---only when toilet is flushing) but you have low flow to toilet. That suggests toilet inlet to bowl/rim is plugged up with minerals/debris Same with that cold side of faucet. X2 Probably minerals/debris in system has broken loose and those were either the first two used. Ken

RE: 2005 Dutchman Dorado - Ford 450 Super Duty and transmission

If that is the E450 SuperDuty cutaway series, it is probably the same combo as our 06, V10 with the 5 spd Torque shift transmission. We have not had any problems with the engine or transmission. Adequate power for our 29' pulling the CRV. Others have reported this combination engine and transmission bullet proof. Our only chassis work done was the brakes, other than regular maintenance. Ken

As 'Second Chance Rob) said. Straight through, middle lanes and plan ahead for lane changes. Ken

RE: Paint/ Stain

Use a water based for the sides, inside and out, where the doggies are close to it. A high gloss finish (water base) would be the easiest to clean, the outside walls could be matte, satin semi-gloss or gloss, your choice. The top, again paint or water based stain depending on type of wood. Ken

RE: Getting cold {er} in southern Arizona...

Water freezes at 32°F no matter where you are, but our reactions to colder weather depends on what part of the country you are in. Personally in our area (Central Ontario, Canada), if I was going to be using the RV in the next couple weeks, I wouldn't think of winterizing if the overnight temp was going to 30. It would take much longer to get the RV to that freezing temperature. Here low 30s, put on a jacket to shovel the snow and then come in and add ice to my drink. I did see one neighbour using his snow blower, while wearing shorts, my definition of cold freezing weather is different than others. Ken

RE: Safety Chains

Unless you remove the tow bar regularly, just leave the safety cables semi permanently attached to the MH. Just find a point on the rear of the MH that the books can attach to and not drag if you drive the MH without the towed. Ken

RE: Battery Question

It could be that your batteries are getting a little weak and after a month the parasitic draws on both systems are bringing them down. On the chassis side, the engine control 'computer' and maybe the radio memory feed. Most radios have two 12v feeds, one for the power operating system that you can turn off, and a second (orange on ours) that just feeds the memory. On the coach/house side its quite possible that the propane and other detectors are wired to the batteries before the disconnect and consequently on all the time. The only sure way to prevent parasitic draws is to disconnect both systems right at the battery terminals. Ken

RE: Weight capacity for 2019 Ram 1500

The truck camper weighs 1280 lbs, my question is, what weight is that. The advertised dry weight of a similar model leaving the factory OR the specific unit with options installed or with battery(ies), full propane, maybe water OR your own unit ready to go with clothes, food camping gear etc, scaled weight. Don't forget that trucks payload includes whatever is put into the cab, starting with 2? people (x150) would automatically reduce the capacity 1950 -300 to 1650 lbs. Ken

RE: And the smokey glass stove cover is no more

I would go to a local automotive glass shop, with the dimensions, hinges and a picture of the stove top. They should be able to cut the glass, know how to attach the hinges and then have it tempered. Tinting ? Cost ? Probably a lot less. If too much or not possible, go with the wooden cutting board, routered to prevent sliding. Ken

RE: Dealing with pet passing while on the road

If you are at a campground, I would ask the campground owners/staff for recommendations, or fellow campers (if from the local area). There is probably 'google' sites that may have reviews of local vets. Ken

RE: 4 year old Forest River vent covers already failed

Who knows why some of the covers fail UV days. Our bedroom vent cover totally disintegrated in the first year, under the Winnebago warranty, but for $10 cost, it was not worth even moving the MH to the dealer. I added MaxAir covers at that time, just for double protection, glad I did. About 6 or 7 years later, I noticed that the vent cover that I had replaced was in pieces on the screen , but the bed was still protected by the MaxAir cover. Interesting, the vent covers for the bathroom and overhead bunk are still the 2006 originals. Yes all have the MaxAir covers. Ken

RE: E450 wheelbase

They are not exactly shifted on the Ford (or whomever) frame. The Ford frame rails are actually cut in two and a section welded in to lengthen the wheel base to meet the RV manufacturers requirements. The driveshaft in ours is one piece, so probably one made to specs, not a piece welded in. I'm not sure if brake lines and electrical were added to or replaced with longer ones. I haven't noticed any splices in ours, frame rails yes but not other components. All of this must be done to meet Ford specifications. Ours does have frame rail extensions behind the rear axle to support the body of the RV and it also does, or can change the towing specs. Ours is still rated to tow 5000lbs but can only have a tongue weight of 350lb. Ken

RE: Where is the valve to drain freshwater tank

Look around the sides of the fresh water tank, near the bottom of may actually be on the bottom of the tank, depending on your individual model. Ours is near the water pump, but a separate fitting off the tank, it then has a separate valve before leading to the 1" drain pipe to the bottom of the RV. Our old trailer just had a screw cap on the drain pipe. On ours, the pump and fittings are on the opposite side of the RV from the fresh water fill and vent fittings. Ken

RE: Forum Posting Help and Support

The directions for posting a new topic, thread etc could be clearer, more options. When I open RV Net, my page shows, in the Blue Bar, Newest, Active.....Forum Posting Help.. My first time I clicked on Forum Posting... And started my post. And it was in the Forum Posting Help... Topic/thread, it does not give an option to change threads/topic from there. I've found that you actually have to get into a specific forum/thread (c-class , towing etc) and go to Post New topic in the grey/black line, I think that there should be an option, when doing the initial post , to pick/change the area you want it posted in.

RE: Winterization issues

On our 06 Winnie Outlook 29b, there are 4 low point drains, in the water pump compartment there is a big yellow handle for draining the fresh water tank and on the pressure side of the pump there is also a low point drain in the plumbing supply line to the coach. There are also 2 low point drains, hot and cold. They are located in an outside storage compartment and go through the floor of the basement compartment. These three are the same type of valve 1/4 turn white handle, the same as the winterization suction valve. It's possible that when changing the valves in the area of the fresh water tank, you've may have forgotten to close this one. Ken
