RE: What jack to have onboard for roadside tire changes?

I do not carry any jack on my coach. I have four Quadra Big Foot levelers that will lift the coach off the ground if needed.

RE: Blue Ox Tow Bar

I have used nothing but Blue Ox base plates and tow bars on five toads and have never had any problems with any of them. But I will say that I would not install them myself. When you have to remove the fenders and the whole front end of a brand new auto, you want a good job done on reapplying everything back in a professional way. The bolts that I got on the last base plate for my 2018 Buick Envision they had self locking nuts. It did not need any lock tite. They done a great job on the installation of the base plate, plus wiring so the battery is getting charged, plus the harness is also wired for the lights on the toad to work in conjunction with the coach. Don't know much about RoadMaster, but I am sure there are other brands just as good as Blue Ox. But I would never use a tow dolly. I lost a vehicle once. That was the end of that. And some RV resorts they do not have room for the storage once you arrive.

RE: Norcold 1200LRIM Issues

I agree with the issue could be on the black box on the outside. I believe it is a 5amp fuse.

RE: Xantrex Fredom 458 series inverter/charger 20 amp

When mine went bad, it done the same thing. I was at Pacific City Oregon, so I called Xantrex in Portland and they told me to take the inverter in to their shop there. They found what he called a mother board had gone bad. They replaced it and I installed it back. But when I installed it, it did not want to start right away until I unplugged a wire on the control panel which looked like a TV connection for a few seconds. Can't remember how many seconds they told me to unplug it and then reconnect it. Inverter started working right away. That was like ten years ago and have not had any more problems with inverters.

RE: Have no electrical power and no propane on one side of coach

So what was the main problem with power only to half of the coach? Was it the RV park outlet that was wired wrong or was the problem on the coach? Not sure what wire he is talking about on the propane tank. The only wire I can think off is a wire to show the tank reading on the inside of the coach.

RE: What did you do to your Class A MH today???

The before did not look so bad for a 23 year old paint job, but the new design on your new paint job looks really good.

RE: Replacement Fridge or New Cooling Unit

Now as to refrigerators, I still have my original Norcold 1200 LRIM since new which was bought in April 2003. The only problem I have had with it is the filler water hose to the ice maker had to be replace which I got through Amazon. Other the that it has been working very good still. The ice cream which a lot of RVers always mention stays hard like a rock and the fridge stays at 38 degrees. What a lot of RVers do not understand is that you can get the refrigerator to cool much more by just sliding the thermister on the rear cooling fins up about half an inch and the temperature will drop to what ever you want, unless you have problems with the seals, then that is a different problem. But even if my Norcold ever goes bad, I can not complain with sixteen years of service and still going strong. I really like using the propane when dry camping and while driving down the road on my Norcold.

RE: Replacement Fridge or New Cooling Unit

Well I finally have a fridge installed in my MH. It's a Haier 9.8cf. Now I'm having my woodworking neighbor working on some trim on one side and a door on the other side, this will be my broom/vaccum closet. This fridge is only 23" wide where my old Dometic was just under 33". It's been a challenge finding a replacement since I was limited on height because of the drain pipe and the front furnace under the fridge area. Max height was 60". Now I'm searching for tires since my 4 rear tires are 7 years old, not a crack on them anywhere, love these Michelins. I just had all my tires changed out also because they were around seven years old and on tire was starting to get side wall cracks. Anyways I stayed with the same brand I have used in the last two tire changes and they are Toyo tires from Les Schwab for around $400. per tire balanced with Equal bags. Mine are 22.5 265x75 they are the M-154 and I just love them tires, couldn't ask for a better tire. My originals were Michelins XRV and I was always worrying about blowouts. They had a bad reputation there for a while.

RE: What did you do to your Class A MH today???

Changed motor oil, and filter. Greased all zerks. new chassis battery. Checked and topped house batteries. Changed transmission fluid to transend, going do a 200 mile trip and change it again. Changed air filter. Why change the transmission fluid at 200 miles? Seems like a waste of money.

RE: What did you do to your Class A MH today???

WOW! Had not posted in this forum in a long time, but here we go. I had a bad ignition switch so I decided to buy the switch at Napa and tackle it myself. I got the Freight liner switch through a cross reference from another manufacturer because they told me that the switch was no where in the USA. But they told me they had the exact switch by Napa. So instead of paying Sixty dollars on the internet I got it for thirty two through Napa. So I was not sure how I was going to pull the part where the tumblers were caged in, so I referred to You Tube and I found one on how to replace the switch on a Fore Travel coach which looked exactly like the one on my coach. It told me to turn the key all the way to the left and get a paper clip and push into a little hole next to where you insert the key and believe it, it come right out. Unscrew the bezel and then just unplug the harness from the back of the switch, put it back together and your done. It probably would have cost me a couple of hundred dollars if I had taken it in to a RV shop. So I saved a couple of hundred at least. Turned the key on and the monster come alive right away.
