RE: Norcold Refrigerator Claims

I believe that is it JimR1. I never have stayed at either one, but some friends of mine stayed at a KOA right across from one of the Marine bases. But actually that is not part of Barstow. That is the little town of Yermo, CA. I honestly believe that the only place in Barstow is the one across from the drive in theater. I do not believe it has many RV sites. It is kind of hidden if I recall. Now Off I-40 east of Newberry Springs, there is a site there which I believe it just opened a few years ago. It is on the right side going east. Most of the RVers stop at the new Super Walmart. It has a big parking area where lots of motor homes stop over night, and also some big trucks stop I guess to get some shut eye. It does get hot here in the summer. Right now it is around 100 degrees. We usually leave on our coach in the summer and go up into Oregon and Washington staying on 101 at the TT Resorts right next to the Pacific ocean, but this year with the Coronavirus we decided to stay in our stick house and hopefully things might get better by the fall so we can start traveling again.

RE: Norcold Refrigerator Claims

It has been three years now since we started receiving part of the settlement, but I thought all three checks that I had gotten were 307.52, but I also thought that it said there would be four installments of 307.52. But thanks for the information Jim. I guess it is better then nothing. I am one of the lucky ones, my 1200 LRIM is still going strong since I bought the coach new in 2003. The temperature on the refrigerator I keep it at around 34 degrees and the freezer I never have set a thermometer in the two freezer compartments, but it freezes everything solid including ice cream.

Norcold Refrigerator Claims

I got a question for RVer's that were part of the Norcold settlement. I got my final check yesterday and I the way I had understood was that we would get four checks, one per year as part of the settlement. I fell under the 25 share settlement and had gotten $307.52 the last three years, but the final installment was only $193.83. I always understood they had divided your settlement into equal installments. I tried to find out by calling the number on the letter, but they have answering machines which do not explain what the amount should have been. Has anybody else gotten the same letter and check like I got and are the amounts correct. Thanks Ray

RE: Anyone traveling yet

If the beaches are packed with young people partying, then they go home for mother to give them a place to sleep and have contacted the Coronavirus while at the beach. The young person might not get sick, but poor mother or father or grandma will probably end up dying from the virus. So I do not know what kind of model Florida is showing. Maybe I am just getting old and do not understand how some think.And what do we do about the yearly flu that kills tens of thousands each and every year? Stay home forever? People are gonna get sick and die, that's the way it is. How can people be this concerned about grandma kicking the bucket and be silent about the million babies aborted in the US every year? Unfortunately there are people like you out there that just do not give a d** about the elderly and humans in general. 95,087 human beings have died in the United States in the last three months and to you it is just collateral deaths that just happens. Fine, go out and do your thing, just hope I never run into you some where on the road.

RE: Anyone traveling yet

Just booked 7 nights at Disney world for July................ Wear a mask and stay away from the shoulder to shoulder crowded places. Disney World would be the last place I would go to. Too many people. My son who lives in Miramar, Florida says the virus is still every where, but the governor wants to open everything up.

RE: Anyone traveling yet

NY Gov Cuomo was just on the news saying, of the recent covid hospitalizations in his state, 66% of the patients came from home while 18% came from nursing homes. My math says that works out to 84% of patients have been in "lock down". Seems to me that staying home, as everyone is telling us to do, is the leading cause of contracting the covid virus. Maybe the CDC doesn't know every thing. If you don't want to go outside then don't. But don't get on me and others for our decision to go camping and venture outside, to live our lives. It's still a free country despite what some want us to believe. I agree that if that is what you want to do, GO FOR IT! And go to a party where everybody there want their freedom and hug each other and we will watch to see what happens to you guys. White house did not believe either, now it has hit home and everybody is wearing masks (except) you know who. Tough guy!

RE: Anyone traveling yet

Wear a mask and stay at least six feet away from other people. Most of us are retired folks and over fifty, so it seems like the virus hits the elderly more then the teenagers, even though we have had several young people dying from the Coronavirus. So use common sense and don't do as our politician suggest. There are the minority that will believe anything, like the person in Kansas that injested Clorox and ended up in the ER. We are not in any rush, we are in our stick house very safe and comfortable. Would like to travel, but most the National parks and even our private resorts are still close. So I am hoping maybe by August things might be under control with the virus. Lots of people are starting to run out of money and are worried about the losses in the stock market, but is it worth your life? Be smart and use the Lysol for sterilizing the places you touch the most on your motor home.

RE: Fleetwood Storm quality

The Storm is an entry level motor home, but you probably will not pay much for it and maybe that is what you want. Your choice, nobody elses. If your happy that is all that matters. But I will say that on motor homes you can get a lemon on any brand. I have seen expensive coaches that are a piece of trash, and at the same time I have seen entry level that have served their owners well. Quality Control is just not in the motor home industry as far as I am concerned. But it is a shame that as much money as these coaches cost that they would be manufactured better. But I think the Ranger was a little harsh on his comment. I had not participated in this forum in a long time, because at one time if you did not own a Newmar all other coaches were junk. And there used to be big arguments between the Tiffin owners and the Newmar owners. I did not like that arguing back and forth. To me it was childish.

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.
