RE: New to RV’ing....and might not last

Keep posting on here and someone will always help you out. Most RVrs in a campground or anywhere would be happy to give you advice and help. Check your tire codes too. When were they last replaced? (Since you received all the records) 7-9 years is max regardless of how they look. As has been stated, everything on the coach is like your house, it's either 12V or 120V. Get a cheap tester and find out which is which. Make copious notes for future reference. If you have trouble remembering, get a label maker and label everything. Above all, remember a happy wife is a happy life....:B.....Dennis

Remember a few weeks ago Harbor Freight recalled some of their jack stands? Well, there's more. Here's the email....Dennis --------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm writing to apologize. I often reach out to tell you about Harbor Freight's commitment to quality and all the investments we've made to deliver quality tools at the lowest prices. Your trust matters deeply to me and I'm proud of how far we've come. So when we have a product recall, it hurts. A few months ago, we recalled our Pittsburgh 3 ton and 6 ton steel jack stands (SKUs 56371, 61196 and 61197) due to a manufacturer's defect. We asked customers to return them and receive a gift card that could be used to purchase replacement jack stands. I felt terrible about that recall because you should never have a concern about the safety of any of our products. Today, I feel even worse. I'm disappointed and embarrassed because we've identified a welding defect in a small number of the Pittsburgh 3 ton steel jack stands (SKU 56373) that replaced the recalled jack stands. We're now adding these jack stands to our recall. Unfortunately, this defect wasn't discovered during the initial recall investigation. If you own these jack stands or any of the jack stands in our original recall, whether or not you have had an issue with them, please stop using them immediately and bring them back to your local Harbor Freight Store for a full cash refund or store credit (see details here). We have investigated all of our other Pittsburgh 3 ton steel jack stands (SKUs 56371, 56372 and 57308) as well as the Pittsburgh 6 ton steel jack stands (SKUs 56368, 56369 and 56370) and Pittsburgh 12 ton steel jack stands (SKUs 56374 and 56375) and did not find the defect. Although none of these other jack stands are being recalled, if you own any of them and have any concern whatsoever, please bring them back and we'll give you a full cash refund or store credit for those as well. I want to apologize to all of our customers. While we've dramatically grown our team of engineers and inspectors, and intensified our tests and inspections, I assure you that the lessons learned from this will drive further improvement. As the owner and founder of Harbor Freight, I want you to know that we stand behind every product we sell and that safety will always be our top priority. Sincerely, eric_sig.jpg Eric Smidt Owner and Founder

RE: Buying RV that's been stored

I'm assuming you know how to check the date codes on the tires. They've been sitting a year or more depending on the veracity of the seller. Like any salesman, they tend to exaggerate. I don't even look at the tire except for the date code. Sitting for at least a year most likely took 2 years off their life span. Figure at least $500 per tire to replace. It will need an oil change and lube. Most likely you'll also want to flush and change the coolant. Inspect for rodent damage as that will present many electrical issues later on. Also check your engine belts for dry rot. The location of where it was stored is important also. A coach sitting in the hot desert sun of Arizona will have different issues than one that has been sitting in the cold and snow of Michigan. Take a paper and pen and go over the coach closely, then take it on a test drive. Remember rust is not a friend of your braking system so use caution there. On the test drive plan on at least 50 miles so there will be no surprises. Driving it around the block is worthless. See how it handles on the freeway...good luck...Dennis

RE: Replace DVD player 2004 National RV Tropical

Isn't it amazing how things have changed in 16 years? Industrial velcro was used in tons of applications but I don't know if that's true in your case. That said, if you're not going to keep the DVD player use a crowbar and yank it out. Then clean everything up and put in the new one. I'm changing out my 32" TV this week with a 40" flat screen. Losing about 50 pounds in the process and using only about 1/4 the number of wires......Dennis

RE: Water in fuel light came on then off

It, most likely, was a false positive but I'd get a bottle of 9.1.1. and throw that in there to be sure. Cheap insurance....Dennis

RE: Tire covers

IMO, tire mfgs build UV protection into the tires during the mfg process. As the tires rotate and warm up, this protection comes to the surface of the tire and does it's job. However, if a tire simply sits for a period of time, this protection fails as it cannot come to the surface which is one of the reasons why it's recommended to take your RV out for a spin periodically. If you don't do this then covering your tires is a good idea. The biggest advantage is in the temp drop from the sun which is easily measured. IIRC, white covers drop the temps about 38% while black drops it about 31%. Tire covers also have another plus, they tend to keep the rims from getting dirty...:)....Dennis

RE: Lost Power on all appliances - Microwave, A/C, outlets

First question is do you have a salesman switch? Second question is do you know where it is? Usually it's near the front door, but it depends on the mfg. This switch is designed as a convenience switch to turn off A/C power quickly without having to turn off the disconnect switch in the basement. Check to see if yours in on. Recheck the breaker on your inverter. On mine it's a really small push button and easy to miss. Yours may be different. Recheck all your wiring. It's easy to overlook the simplest things especially wiring. Be sure to let us know if you are successful in tracking down the gremlin...Dennis

RE: New to RVing, GVWR and multiple State DL

In Florida I can drive a 45' Prevost RV with my standard FL driver's license BUT I have to have a motorcycle endorsement to drive a little 100cc motorcycle. Kinda weird but that is the way it is. :B But in California a special class license is required for 45' coaches......Dennis
