RE: First Time RV Buyer

Better build for the higher end ones. We have had a Pacearrow, Winnebago chieftain, Newmar and a Blue Bird Wanderlodge. The Newmar was build better than the first two and the Wanderlodge was no comparison to the first three. All were Gas except the Wandelodge. The Newmar Mountainaire was a great RV, build very good and not many body issues. We keep it 16 years. The Blue Bird was a 2003 and build was very high end like you high end Monaco and other higher end couches. Find something you like and afford and enjoy it. The Blue Bird had the best drive train and suspension. No upgrade required. The Newmar I added air bags to made it ride smoother and it did. No sure what you going to find in a 30-32 foot size.

RE: Ceramic Waxes

I'd get a bottle and do my car. If it works as described, then I'd do my coach. If not, you've spent very little time, effort and money and you're done. Looks like a great alternative providing it's not some hyped up snake oil. My experience has been these waxes are easier to apply but do not last as long as the old trusty smear on, buff off waxes, so you might have to redo the coach 3-4 times a year instead of annually.......Dennis Dennis I did this on my little sports car. It was right at $60 for the stuff. Really has to be clean and dry. Then at lease two coats of it. It dries fast so not that bad. Lasted just over two months and it stay in the garage when not driven. Looks great but it ready for a new clean it off and do again. It looks great, better than new, but collect dust really bad here where I live. So its not cheap and it takes a while. Its going to take a while to do that 45 foot. They just started putting it on cars here for $50 but you have to have the car wash first for another $30. I am not sure if it one coat or two. The company I got my stuff stated two coats and anymore is a waste since it does not help it stay on longer. To me the regular wax is good but does not look as good as the ceramic. I have notice the price has come down by 50% since last year. Have fun

RE: 2001 Holiday Rambler

MountainAir I had a new Winnebago Luxor in 1997 that had a factory Sony system. Monacos had the same in 1998. Popular system. Thank you. Our Winnebago had an option for an upgrade.

RE: Any option for re-filling MH Propane Tank from Small Tank?

I'm not a specialist on this, but a question, Since many people run a portable grill from a low pressure line run from the RV system, Why , couldn't you attach a tank with a grill regulator to one of those fittings to basically back feed the system after turning off your main tank? vapor and liquid.

RE: Any option for re-filling MH Propane Tank from Small Tank?

What you read is the only safe way. You can purchase a extended stay adapter and if you have a BBQ tank or the bigger cylinders you just install it inline and connect your other tank and you have propane.

RE: 2001 Holiday Rambler

Never ran into a RV that age that had a Sony OEM. Look at the numbers on the wiring. Maybe they left a decal on them.

RE: Keeping a charge on AGM batteries

In days of old some of the converters were first class JUNK and would destroy batteries if left connected too long.. I don't think that converter type has been manufactured in the last 20 years Modern converters come in 3 or 3+ types Single state: More proper to call this a "power supply" Fixed out put voltage normally 13.6 battery NEVER gets to full charge Two stage... Bulk/Float This recharges much faster but depending on the unit may or may not fill the cells with power. Three State (Bulk/Absorption/Float) Now this rapidly recharges the battery to like 90% then slowly tops it off to FULL then switches to Float. Best type The PLUS. Equalization or desulfacation features. And mine for my AGM or wet cell is 7 stage plus equlization or desuf. Provided the converter has the proper "profile" You are golden. But even a Flooded Wet charger like the Progressive Dynamics Charge wizard is at worst Silver with AGM's (The profiles are mighty close) If your rig was made this century. post the make and model of your converter for more.

RE: Mirror replacement issue. Need some assistance Please!

Update from Yesterdays post. wired yp everything this morning and here is my results. MotorHome Green Wire to Mirror Black MotorHome Red wire to Mirror White MotorHome Black to Yellow. Now everything is working except-- left and right is perfect. Up and down is backwards-- Up on swith is down mirror and down is up. Now if I have to I can live with this as I have a new good functional mirror, but being me knows there is a pattern to get it right. any suggestions would be helpfull. Thanks much Dad PS: I am not using the 2 Red wires!! Is this both mirrors as in Left and Right. You can also look at the old one still install and that might help. Also that 1-800 # will work for them and they know the answer fast.

RE: Keeping a charge on AGM batteries

If they are AGM then they need a correct charger. I have one vehicle that has it and it stays on the charger 24/7 if not on the road. I use a Cteck brand. My OEM lasted 9 years doing this. As stated every time you take them off they start over, just not as long as if they not been on in a while. https://smartercharger.com/ Are we talking about the same thing? Honest question. When plugging in to shore power the converter supplies the charging current. I'm not even sure yet where it is (2000 Airstream Land Yacht) and it's not something I can check right now, but is it likely to have different charging settings? Yes you will not be able to use the RV system unless it came with a high end or up grade to a higher end charge. Since you have a 2000 as stated you do not have a high end charger as OEM. Maybe an upgrade. If you going to run AGM then you need to configure the correct way so they will last. Charging voltage and rest voltage are different for AGM. 12.80+ for charging. My rest voltage is 13.1

RE: Mirror replacement issue. Need some assistance Please!

how bout who made the mirror and model number. On mine the Red and Green are the heaters. Brown, White, Black go to the mirror. Pin # 1 is brown Pin # 2 and 3 is the blacks Pin #4 White So each company uses a different color and pin for power and grd so that is why need the make and model.

RE: 2001 Fleetwood Southwind Front-end sags

Hello Everyone, I have a 2001 Fleetwood Southwind. It is a nightmare to try and level. The front end sits pretty lower than is should. I replaced the airbags, but that did not solve the problem I am guessing the only thing it could be is the springs. Does anyone else have any other ideas? Thanks, RobContent deleted as it offered no valve to the discussion. Mr lee I beg to differ on your statement. MY Ford had the same issue out of new dealer lot , New and order by us. A Newmar Moountainaire. They replace both front leaf springs after 60 days of my purchase under warranty. It happens.

RE: 2001 Fleetwood Southwind Front-end sags

Springs . I had a 80 model and within 60 days it was touching the tires. It happens every so often.

RE: OBD-i and OBD-ii did a '96-'97 F53 ever have diagnostic plug

I think like stated under the dog house toward the Left wheel on the firewall or just in front of the left wheel inboard. Use to be some pictures on here somewhere. https://www.google.com/search?q=1996+obd1+connector+F53+chassis&client=firefox-b-1-d&tbm=isch&source=iu&ictx=1&fir=cWY6CzKvXHYktM%252ClAM1ja74UHVeAM%252C_&vet=1&usg=AI4_-kS3N0KFLVvp9ASIOsElG-GqKiNsLw&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwii8f-QlP7uAhWdAZ0JHXbmD0UQ9QF6BAgdEAE#imgrc=cWY6CzKvXHYktM just info. this is not the same shape as the obd11 connector. Only has 3 to 5 pins . this has pictures where it is located

RE: Looking for an electrician to answer a question for me

as stated put in a manual transfer switch and when power is lost, pull the switch to get power from the gen. No back feed to the line coming into your home. People get hurt and killed from peoples short cuts to save a buck. You will not get much working with 30 amps.

RE: Transmission advice

First you need to repair/replace any cables that got to hot. The 4r100 transmission along with most others do have lockup system that get info from other sources. You can purchase or have wiring made. After that what every codes you have can be address.

RE: Start

Without any info , either the wrong parts installed as too low in amps or they have one heck of a amp draw.

One is for the level system and the other one for your slide. Probable just a leaking valve, but would need to know which system you have and it has pictures so easy for you to pick.
