RE: Using camper transport service?

I think doing a little research, which your inquiry here is, makes a lot of sense. The companies that haul for the manufacturers is one source, and U-ship is another. Call and talk about insurance, costs, time frames, personal belongings inside the RV, and any concerns you have.

RE: What's up with the DEF Delete?

In my search for a truck it seems like any 2015-2016 F350 SRW is gone the day it hits the lot. I did find a very nice lower mileage in great shape but the salesmen told me it had the DEF delete done. From what I understand it removes all the mechanical parts for the DEF and re-programs the computer. He says it's a service his shop offers and has become fairly popular. Claims to still pass emissions etc but offers better MPG and HP, but frankly, it makes me nervous. I feel like I'd rather have a stock truck. I called my mechanic and he didn't know much about it. Is this something to stay away from? The biggest thing that comes to mind is engine warranty. I bet any engine repairs needed would be denied any warranty claims. I also doubt what the salesman said about their shop doing DEF deletes. Assuming you are at a Ford dealer, any emmissions alterations could cost the dealership tons of money from fines imposed by the EPA and could jeapordize his franchise with Ford.

RE: Thoughts on this Truck

So the ad says one owner on car Gurus, but the Carfax says it has had 4 owners. The first 2 were commercial in Quebec and tallied up all the mileage. The 3rd owner was a consumer in Quebec - or some kind of auction dealer, and then a dealer here in VA - I assume traded at auction from Canada to Va. Is that something to be concerned about? Read an article about this not long ago, because of the very favorable exchange rate, wholesale buyers in the US buy vehciles in Canada and export them to the US. Even with the costs of exporting and converting the odometer and speedometer to miles from kilometers, it is profitable. That is not a vehicle I would buy. I prefer to purchase a factory certified (not some hokey dealer certification) with the extended factory warranty the certified vehicle provides.

RE: Class B title question????

Insurance recoveries often get salvage or rebuilt titles depending on the state. Also check with your state of different from where it is now titled as different states have different rules about those titles.

RE: Large camper with single AC

The A/Cs are much more efficient now. 2 Will run just fine on 30 amps if you switch the fridge and water heater to gas for the hot part of the day and shut one off if you need to run the microwave. Quite doable if you want to stay comfortable. Put #2 on. You won't regret it! This is vey good and correct information.

RE: Firman W02981- Any feedback?

Very few campers ever run air with a generator, although many talk about it. An interesting statement. I wonder on what facts you base this statement.

RE: Water Heater Help

The problem is not air in the lines! The OP has states it has run multiple times for 3+ minutes before shutting off. Everything points to a bad control board.

RE: Leaving breakers in the camper on while away?

To the OP: hatever you do at your stick and bricks house when you leave it you should do with your camper. What is the difference?

RE: Noisy Refrigerator

I think in the gas absorption refrigerator, there really isn't any moving parts, so not likely a problem with the refrigerator itself. I bet there is a fan making that noise!

RE: ISO Owners Manual

Owner’s manuals are mostly generic for all the models. I have the manual for our camper and it’s pretty useless. Go through the camper, write down all of the appliances model numbers, go online and download the manuals. Put them all in a notebook along with any manual from stuff you buy. I ended up using a really big one. This is very good advice!

RE: Toll roads or not

I remember traveling on the Pennsylvania Turnpike in my Class B. The road was obviously designed for traffic conditons in the 1950's, and the toll was outrageous. They even charged extra because my converted van was a high top! I have traveled the Florida Turnpike instead of I95- little difference except I95 is free!!! I rather enjoy traveling the back roads and going through the towns.

RE: Lp stove not percolating coffee

Perhaps you have the flame too high. The hottest part of the flame is the blue tip. If the flame is bathing the sides of the coffee pot, then it is not hot enough at the base of the fire to boil water, and most of the heat is escaping up along the side of the pot. It may seem counter intuitive, but down the flame to a low setting and your coffee pot will percolate.

RE: Onan Generator Hunts Under Load

Since it apparently runs good when connected the external fuel supply, I would look towards the on board fuel source. Perhaps stale gas, even though you added new gas that may not be enough. Maybe a fuel pressure issue with the on board supple. I think the intank pump serves both the generator and the vehicle, and if I am correct, perhaps it is weak.

RE: Out of state license and storage.

Vehicles are generally titled and registered in the state where they're garaged. As an attorney, I can tell you this is an incorrect statement. Vehicles are titled where the owner maintains a legal residence. To the OP: state laws differ, but generally you are required to register your vehicle in your state of legal residence. Some states are very aggressive about their residents avoiding taxes by registering vehicles in another state. Even those sham LLC Montana companies that some people use to register vehicles have failed other states "smell test." I think Montana is very loose about vehicle registrations, hence those LLC's. Since the RV will never be in California, and if you use a Montana address to associate that vehicle to without a mention of California, you will be fine. The chance of California discoverng you own that vehicle is virtually none. Of course if they do, as Ricky told Lucy, you got some splaining to do.
