RE: garmin 1090 goes to sleep

What is your power source? Is it possible the plug is not putting out any /correct voltage?

RE: Retile

We had carpet in the bedroom, bath and living areas with tile in the kitchen. Replaced it all with a wood look vinyl and it's much better. No more grout to clean between the tiles and much more comfortable under foot than tile.

RE: What's your mileage?

My 40,000# bus conversion with Detroit diesel Seties 60 engine gets 6.5 - 7 MPG. I travel at the speed limit (plus a few) up to 73-74 where I top out. The majority of our driving is Interstate as I am looking for more time at the destination than the travels.

RE: Priming the water pump

The only thing I can do, and have been doing, is to disconnect the inlet hose from the pump, put a funnel directly into the pump and pour water in and reconnect the hose. That seems to cause a prime that then works as long as we keep the tank filled and keep using it. Any idea why the pump no longer primes on its own the way it should? Thanks! What I don't understand is how you can disconnect the input line and not have water flowing everywhere. That line should be full of water and supply lots more water to your pump than a funnel could provide. Is the pump above the tank?

RE: Holiday Rambler anyone?

Hahaha, this man asks for thoughts on one particular brand of coach. He makes it very clear he’s already decided on a gas coach….And yet still, some can’t help but make it into a gas vs diesel thing right off the bat. We really need to try harder to focus on answering the question being asked, and quit hijacking threads to the same age old debates. It's also possible that the OP is not aware that a used diesel will be more affordable, have less issues and provide a better experience than a new 2023. It's worth mentioning.

RE: New to me used camper questions and thoughts

So few RVs have any significant solar I don't see it as any kind of a added sales incentive. See

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

So disappointing to see a new posting listed and then find the same old crud the moderator warned fulltimin about. Not sure what happened, but this thread hasn't gone anywhere in many months. Now we are 6 years into a project that still has years to go if it ever gets started again. Please stop posting random thoughts instead of something that has to do with the project at hand. It gets my hopes up that there is once again progress only to have them dashed.

RE: New to me used camper questions and thoughts

Take the panels and other equipment. You can remove the panel from the brackets and leave the brackets behind if you want to keep the roof weather tight. If you plan to junk it or sell it real cheap, take it all and Dicor the roof, screw the screws back in and Dicor over that. Whether tight again!

RE: Manifold Replacements

That being said, labor, two new sets of bolts and two new manifolds around 4,300 hundred. 4,300 hundred is A LOT = $430,000 :W

No posts since 2/1/23 and we are supposed to get excited by another of topic post? I was hoping you were going to show us a completed interior at least!

RE: Amplifier for television?

You can't add an amp to the Winegard antenna which is already amplified (at the head where it does the most good). Sometimes, where you are located vs. where the broadcast is located requires MORE and/or higher antenna. If you are going to be there for an extended period you can look at some of the higher gain antennas that you can mount on a taller pole. If you plan to move on soon you can try adding the Winegard Sensar Pro which does have some additional boost but most importantly a signal meter to ensure the antenna is pointed in the right direction.

RE: Black Tank Help Needed

There have been many cases of new RV's having the plug that was cut our to connect the valves being left inside. Eventually, that plug gets flushed back to the outlet and clog the whole thing up. The only real way to know what's going on is to remove the valve (having a bucket handy) and see what's what.

RE: Is there any REAL quality out there?

Marathon Coaches are built in Oregon. I think those qualify as high quality. Isn't Marathon built on a Prevost? YES! If your most important parameter is quality, you can't afford to NOT buy a Prevost. You may have to move back a few more years than you had expected but a Prevost built in 1995 is still better than anything built today.
