RE: Gas Furnace

I had that problem and found a mud dobber wasp nest glued to the fan. Got it out and all is fine. And I have the screens on the exhaust. So how they got in there is a mystery.

RE: Cleaning the carpet?

We usually rent a Big Green Machine with upholstery atachments and pick up ZEP Commercial Carpet Cleaner at Home Depot. Also use ZEP Carpet spot remover prior to the carpet cleaning on those tough spots We get in the corners and hard to get spaces with the upholstery attachment and get the big areas with the machine. We then use it on the truck and any other vehicle upholstrey as well as the sticks and brick if we are there. One Day rental is 40 bucks and a gallon of Zep is 9 bucks which last forever! Spot remover about 8 bucks for a gallon and again last a long time. Been doing this for years from our Class A to TT now the 5er. It smells fresh and clean and the Big Green Machine is strong enough to pull out most sand and other garbage in the carpet. We had a small dog for years and it worked well.

RE: Air conditioning in new 5th Wheel

Regardless of brand of RV, there maybe an issue with return air not making into the exchange correctly. On all of the RV's I have owned over the past 30 years, I have always taken the air conditioner bezel off inside and foil taped around the sides so air does not get between roof and ceiling. Only the ducting, will be allowed air if you have ducting. Also the, so called plenum between the cold air and the warm return air may need to also be foil taped to keep the air conditioner from just recirculating air that has already been cooled. If your cold air is just sucked back in the return then you are not circulating the cooled air. My last 5er I had to do that on both air conditioners. I keep an infrared thermometer handy to check the vent temps and expect a 20 degree or more differential after about 30 minutes of running it. But I would sure look at the air not being circulated right in the area just under the air conditioner on both units. My dad had a brand new Cardinal and he was having an issue with not cooling correctly. Took it in and they said was all good. I drove 5 hours to his location with my handy dandy foil tape. We took off all vents and bezels and taped the connections between the vent and pathways at the air conditioner and final destinations in the RV and now on 100 degree days, in East Texas, he is in a 68 degree RV. Just my 2 cents.

RE: Anyone have a favorite RV wax ???

I have been using Meguiars Flagship Marine Clearner Wax for a few years and then the Same Premium Wax. Wipe on, let it dry a few minutes and wipe off and it always left a very reflective shine. UV resistant is a plus. I wax once a year and use the Cameco Wash and Wax and it always cleans it up and shines again.
