RE: Shower hose fittings problem

I am just guessing that the diverter has an odd or different type of thread that was part of the old hose nd shower head. I assume you can buy a new diverter. Till then just poke some holes in a bucket and hang that from the ceiling and pour in water. :B JimR

RE: Winegard X2 storage bag

Here is the solution. According to a review on Amazon for a Winegard X2, this person reported that a 18" x 22" drum bag was a good fit and a "perfect solution." Protec Bass Drum, Black, Kick 18 x 22 (hgt x dia) (HR1822) -- Amazon $44.00 Quote: Perfect match for the Winegard Pathway X2 PA6002R Satellite TV Antenna By Donna k on Nov 03, 2018 If your having trouble finding a storage bag for the Winegard Pathway X2 PA6002R Satellite TV Antenna, the Heavy Ready 18 x 22" (Height x Diameter) Padded Kick Drum Bag by Protec, Model HR1822 was a perfect solution for the price. Yep I believe this is where I saw it reading the reviews before I bought my Pathway X2 and Wally bundle from Amazon. JimR

RE: sewer line upgrade - need to replace cap and sewer hose

This cap will let you see if there's been any leakage before you remove it: Camco Clear Sewer Cap This is the hose I use and have found to be quite durable: Camco RhinoFLEX 15ft RV Sewer Hose Kit Ditto on the RinoFlex JimR

RE: internet

When I went to a camp that did not have WIFI I bought a Verizon phone , a Moto G4 ??, that had hot spot capability and bought the plan that worked for me, I think it was unlimited with 30 GB of data. Good for email and banking not streaming HD movies. Cost about $50.00 a month and the phone was about $70.00 and worked for two seasons. I did have an AT&T iPhone but Verizon was the only service that worked in my location. So the things to think about are what service works where you are going and is there a cheap phone or device to buy that will work read the fine print. Oh the Verizon plan was Pre-Pay so when done no more payments and not locked into a contract. JimR

RE: Alfa basement air service

The outside Condenser coils you can access from the outside with a Garden Hose. The INSIDE Evap coils are harder to get at. Remove the AC filter under the rear bed and see if you can access the Evap there. Are you asking because you have a cooling problem? Doug I do not remember any ALFA having a filter under the bed as that is where the engine is. JimR One of the reasons Alfa went out of business was because the DESIGN of the basement AC system meant that you had inadequate return air from the middle to front of the Motorhomes. WE sold Alfa for just 1 year and dropped the line after numerous Customer complaints of NOT getting the Alfa's below 80 degrees on higher than 90 degree days. This was a known problem to Alfa and Alfa could never engineer a fix. So, the Air filter on the units we sold was indeed in the back under the bed. Doug Doug the air filter is not under the bed. The air filter is in the bedroom area near the bed in the cabinets above or passenger side of the bed. Under the bed is the engine access hatch no air filters. JimR You are correct. There was another brand Motorhome from 20 years ago with basement air that had the filter in the bed compartment. Doug Doug no big deal I forget what I want when going into the next room. I will agree with you that the AC on the ALFAs were not the best and that a roof air in addition to the basement air solved some issues with cooling. In the later years ALFA added a J box in the electric compartment and a 12 3 Romex from the J box to the forward top roof vent for the addition of a AC unit on the roof at owners expense. I hope dannydperez get his AC worked on JimR

RE: New Montana purchase

Theoretically you want to know that everything works and hooks to the truck BEFORE signing on the dotted line. Sounds like this CW did it right. IMO Camping World did not do this right. Holding back the finance information was wrong. Keeping them there for hours was not right. JimR

RE: Alfa basement air service

To do the best job the unit should be removed and cleaned and serviced. There are some shops that can do that very well. See my PM JimR

RE: If you bought your RV on payments from General RV.

Fox News 13 in Salt Lake did a report on this and then a follow up as more people had the same issues. First story First Report Second Report Second Story Both start the same but are 2 separate but related reports. Looks Fishy to me. JimR

RE: Very disappointed

PMB = Private Mail Box ???? Yes Dakota post and some others issue your address as a PMB Private mail Box, for most transactions its no problem, but "SOME" people like making simple things hard. Another option is to list your address as Box or apt # versus the PMB. When using a mail forwarding service in SD the SD DMV knows who those are and where they are and will not (currently) put anything other than PMB on the drivers licensee regardless of what you put on the form. Also there is different residency requirements concerning voting and fishing and hunting licenses as a resident. The PMB does not work for the fishing and hunting residency license as Fish and Game does mot recognize the PMB as a residence. JimR

RE: Quick connect LP fitting won't work with standard gas grill?

Most standard gas grills must be connected BEFORE the LP pressure regulator on the RV. You can't double regulate. Remove the regulator from your grill and then connect to your standard regulated quick connect. Yes you can my dad did it a motorhome he had for many years. A general rule of thumb is you can't double regulate. I don't dispute that your dad was able to do it but for the most part to regulators will reduce the gas flow to inoperable levels. Mine work fine double regulating. My weber is connected to the low pressure side of the propane regulator using a quick connect, the Weber has a regulator too. All works well. JimR

RE: City water hookup leaks

When mine leaked it was some sand or crud that got in the valve on mine there is a stem inside that I push in against the pressure and that flushes the valve out. But I have also replaced two JimR The "I have no clue where they got their brains from" folks will holler that "OH you will break it if you do that" (Not true) but here is a fact.. It's already broken.. You might fix it, or you might not but worst case is you don't fix it You depressurize the system first. If you don't, there is a CHANCE that the ring washer will be pushed out of place. Not always, but sometimes. If you depressurize first, there is not enough force to push the ring washer out, but you still get water backflowing out of the valve. Yes I was on tank water pump off. I discovered the leak when after filling the tank and removing the water hose that the pump would not quit running so I turned off the pump and went to look. Not sure what I had there for a plug, must have been a push in type no threads. The problem was some hard water, calcium, from the campground faucet went through the hose into the valve and I could see it sticking out the valve pushed the little pin and all was good. Glad I caught because the campground had shut the water off after my fill cold night Dec 31st Bosque Birdwatchers RV Park, San Antonio NM. JimR

RE: A B Switch

This is an update to what I posted here a few days ago. I bypassed the A B switch and my signal still drops out so there is something no good in the RV wiring. My plan is to abandon the RV wiring and install new coax to the the Wally. Just an FYI PS I tested 150 feet of Coax and it worked JimR

RE: Quick connect LP fitting won't work with standard gas grill?

I have a Weber BBQ with it's own regulator and I use the low pressure side of the propane from the RV with the quick connect. Works just fine. JimR

RE: Extend-a-stay alternate

I did not use or like the "Extend A Stay" I went to a Home and Hearth store in Oregon where they had a lot of propane stuff. For me they made my adaptor out of a brass tee with the POL fitting on either end to fit the tank valve and regulator, nothing bulky. I would say that a place that builds BBQs and fireplaces and outdoor kitchens may have some thing or maybe Granger. Looking at the photo it looks like the thread on the valve is 1/2 inch IP if so just put in a brass tee. JimR
