RE: Road to travel

I've only ever crossed at Blaine once and the traffic south through SeaTac was horrendous. 101 to Olympia Mon-Fri looks like it would be a great option, seeing as your starting point is PA.

RE: Exhaust rattle

Harmonic rattle. Probably due to missing catconv.

RE: How do I relocate my outside compartment Cable connection

I found a 3 foot length of coax cable, and leave it connected, with appropriate connectors, all the time. Reaches to the outer edge of the compartment, and I connect external coax cables to it, for TV, or whatever.

RE: Dometic Power Awning Pro Beeping and Clicking

In that case, good luck with it. Maybe someone with your exact awning/issue will chime in?

RE: Dometic Power Awning Pro Beeping and Clicking

If it's below freezing where you are (based on your signature?) it may be water intrusion/freezing around the motor/mechanism. If you don't really need it, I'd wait until it warms up above freeze, and then continue your troubleshooting.

RE: IVECO Daily at Speed

Do roof vents remain on the roof at 110 mph ? Only in forward gears, as they're usually hinged at the front edge and open upwards from the back, like a roof top spoiler, so improved down force is increased, too. However, 103mph in reverse may dislodge them.

RE: IVECO Daily at Speed

Is that kind of speed useful in some way? Are there autobahns or other types of high speed commuter freeways/highways in Oz where you could take advantage of 103-110 mph? Where would one use that kind of velocity in a motorhome? Late for your non-refundable campground reservation?

RE: Looking for advice/feedback on a purchase

Flip a 3 sided coin, and then go with the 2010 Winnebago Chalet. :C

RE: how to not destroy an alternator when charging LI batteries.

Are there reports of burnt up Alternators from RV'ers installing Lithium Batteries and the Chassis charging system is not designed for Lithium? Doug Only on the Victron video.

RE: It's time to winterize...

Yes, there are always at least a couple of gallons of water {added after a thorough flushing in both the gray and black tanks} so adding a couple of quarts of antifreeze is about right. The black and gray tanks are only 20 gallons each and the tank heaters are not huge. I just use them to take the edge off of the low temps. The space heater is plugged into a GFI and has a kill switch if it is bumped much less knocked over. I had an electrician install the dedicated 30 amps with its own box just below the house breaker panel. Normal snowfall up here is about 23" a year spread over half a dozen 2 and 3 day events, no big deal but... last January we had 2.5' of heavy wet snow with temps in the mid to low teens which while unusual snow {like "stuff} happens". Here are a couple of shots taken last January: :E I pretty much do everything you do, including the space heaters. No water heater tank, so not that, but agree with grit dog, don't bother putting RVAF in it. I don't turn on the tank heaters, but I do empty as much as possible while the weather is still good, and the fresh tank, too. RVAF in the traps, and if some winds up in the holding tanks, so be it, no harm, no foul. No RVAF in the fresh tank, personal preference. Easier to keep the roof warmer than freezing, to clear the snow on top of my solar panels, than to get up there with a brush. It snows where I live, and often it snows a lot. Also, if you've got a water filter, mine's under the sink, remove, and drain it. Don't forget to replace it, before you recharge the water system. You got this....:C

That's what living at altitude will do for you. :E

RE: It's time to winterize...

Does pink RVAF qualify as "liquids in the holding tanks"? I ask because my tank heaters have a caveat "do not use on empty tanks". Unless you keep an amount of liquid in the holding tanks when they're sitting in your driveway?

RE: Is there a Class C that can be driven into sketchy terrain?

Winnebago EKKO, but they're new, and pricey. Some more exotic units exist, but they're closer to truck campers. Earthroamer, for one. Very pricey, but they sometimes have used ones for sale.

RE: Flat tow toad brake and tow bar recommendations

Blue Ox for me. Base Plate, towbar, wiring, cables, and Patriot II towed automatic braking system. Not an easy DIY for me, I had it installed. 4 years, no problems pulling a 4500lb Wrangler.

RE: house batteries & heat with 120v

my 2 house batteries my class c are dead and Cales taken off. want to wait until spring to buy new ones, but want rv to be available for kids to sleep inside if needed during the winter. If I hook up to 120v shore power to use the furnace will the blower work all night without the batteries being hooked up? thanks again. Probably not, but adding year/make/model of RV will get better more relevant answers.

RE: What's a reasonable towed vehicle?

I pull a 2016 Wrangler JKU with a Blue Ox tow package. 4 down, easy to tow, no locking steering, or fuses to pull, or other special needs. Transmission in P, and transfer case in N, and off you go. 1/4 tank of gas to keep the weight down, and under the GCWR of 15250 lbs.

RE: Stability control

I just installed the yellow sumo springs what a difference. I will be putting them on the front. Thanks for the update! Good news? I've decided to wait for a while, and a few more miles to add the fronts to my chassis. The rears do seem to help, so I may not need the fronts after all, but I have them, if needed. Weather is starting to chill up here, which also helped decide which way to proceed.

RE: Chevrolet 4500 service

Truck stops can also handle RV chassis stuff. Loves, FJ, Pilot, TA, etc....
