RE: Kwikee Step Motor Replacement

The ACI motor was the best one I had in my 1990 Bounder. The one in the Winnie is doing fine.

RE: Reverse shoulder operation

I have no personal experience but my Bro who slightly older had the opration about a year ago. He is back at work as a contract management inspector for almost 7 months. Sore after splitting firwood, not pain, only about90% range of motion. The stupid [email protected]#t is 80 and went back to work. Should have taken the retirement that was recommended.

RE: Driving a 33' Class A

Our first rv was a 28'6" long 96" wide class A,currently we have a 32'5" class A that is 101" wide. The first rv we drove for several years including a 2.5 month trip to AK without a towed. That convinced me before we made another long trip that I would buy a towed. Now with a longer, wider rv, I find it an absolute necessity. For us a 4x4 is best as we boondock, a mid-sized truck is very convient. For several years we had the rv, a towed and two daily drivers, now my daily is a GMC Canyon that is our towed. Our current Moho is nimble but not like the first one. Not small town friendly. Right turns onto narrow streets are a problem, tail swing is horrid and dirt roads, I avoid them like the plague. The three Suzis we have had were great the GMC is okay. I reccomode the towed.

RE: Dinghy Towing

MNC, I am a Californian and up until a couple of years ago did not have a SBS on my toweds, at that time the law on SBS'ss was a performance base law. Able to stop in X feet ax X speed, I went to the local CHP office where I had gotten a copy of the law and kept it in my RV, on my last visit, I was told the law had been changed and now towed vehicles were covered by trailer laws. I don't really feel that is true and the Chippy didn't have time to give me a copy of the law so I just put a SBS on my towed. Prior to my current GMC Canyon I had towed Suzis and didn't feel I needed extra braking, the Canyon is heavier than a Suzi and I can tell it. I like stay in place systems but have a brake buddy now because I bought it really cheap at a close out sale. So my answer is get it, it is cheaper than not being able to stop when you need to.

RE: Oregon State Parks to add surcharge

Thanks to "rhagfo" for posting the page from OPRD. After looking at the facts as given there, I have to say Oregon is still a great deal. I've been through these Temporary surcharges before and somehow they become permanent, once again, Oregon's charges are fair even with the charges. Fifty to seventy five dollars per night for an un-improved basic site on the beach in California State Parks is not a good deal no matter what. The old we pay taxes and outsiders use our parks is a very tired old thing, forget it. Without visitors from other states Oregon's outrageous property taxes would rise and sales taxes would be imposed. We all get a good deal with being able to go on the road and visit one another's states.

RE: 100 watt Solar decision

I bought a WindyNation 100 watt kit for about the same price, I also bouhgt a second panel and I am happy with what I have. I used sticky feet to mount the pannel on my fiberglass roof. No holes but pretty spendy. I suggest you search reviews not wib sites and find out what fits your needs.

RE: City Water is filling/overflowing my freshwater tank

If you try all of the suggestions you have received but to no avail, I will offer that you do have a bad check valve. I am making an assumption that all your valves in the correct position. There is really no other possibility and I have experienced it in the past and I have seen at least one other RV that had the same problem. Let us know what you find.

RE: Shore Power Question -- (15A+30A=45A)

One question, three different answers. That's why this forum is so popular. Everyone gets their say, and they don't get ridiculed for it. Read the first two pages of the post "Long Arm of the Law". This is my first post in a long, long time and probably my last for even longer. Gary's post was a good one, answers 18 thru to the end are in left field and off topic.

RE: Thermostat Fan Speed switch doesn't work, LONG

I'm sorry Doug but I'm not aware what you mean by the Coleman HP blower motor.

Thermostat Fan Speed switch doesn't work, LONG

I have a '02 Winnie Adventurer with a Suburban SF35 furnace and a Coleman residential central AC/Heat pump unit, controlled by a Coleman-Mach Thermostat. Last week we were dry camping in Quartzsite Arizona and experiencing overnight temps in the low 40's to mid 30's. The rear bedroom/bath area has 3 furnace registers, the kitchen/dinette area two registers and the cockpit area one. The AC has numerous registers in the ceiling. Because we were dry camping for 10 days we relied mostly on the furnace for heat and there is very little air movement in the cockpit. One morning it was especially cold, about 37 degrees and knowing the AC/Heatpump would not be very effective, I tried it anyway. The air from the heatpump was barely above body temp but as I later learned, the two appliances are tied together so that if the air temp and the temp setting on the termo are more than 5 degrees apart, the furnace will start and run until the the room temp reaches the set temp of the thermo and then both the heatpump and the propane furnace shut off. What was odd to me was the furnace came on at a very high speed, high enough that as my wife walked over floor register, her nightgown did a MM thing by blowing up around her knees. It had never blown that hard before and the air temp in the cockpit/dinette areas are normally 5 to 7 degrees cooler than the bedroom/bath areas. The thermostat is in the hall separating the bedroom/bath areas from the dinette/cockpit areas. When the thermo shut down both units, the temps in the dinette/cockpit area were the same as the bedroom/bath area. The thermo allows for heat, AC and heat pump and for fan only at HiSpeed or LowSpeed and heating/AC at either HiSpeed or Low Speed. The "fan only" function does not work at all and we've had this rig about 2.5 years and the furnace has never had much airflow. It is opvious that the floor duct is clear because the one time the high speed did come on there was as much airflow in front as in the back and it was enough to move the DW's nightgown around. How do I trouble shoot the fan speed control. None of the schematics I could find show a speed control wire on the thermostat. Getting help from AirEx is neigh impossible and I am not a member of any of Winnie's consumer groups. Normally I can find installation instructions to find out what should be there or how things should work but this has me stymied. Anyone have any ideas? Another important bit of information is that the RV is 45 miles from our house and so I can't just walk out to it and look for anything. Knoing what to look for , however, would be good to know as I will be out there at least by Saturday.
