RE: 2017 Newmar Baystar

Thanks Shot-N-Az. That makes perfect sense. When I was trying the other day I think the main problem I may have had was that I also had the water connected to the rig. So when adding chems I should have "fill tank" open and when winterizing I should have "city water" on? Don't know about your Newmar but our Baystar has the Tank/city valve in one bay and the pump and winterizing hose in the next. Wish it was all in the same bay. Found the valves for the water heater under the sink in the rig. May just have to spend the $100 to take it down and let a tech show me how. Our Coachmen was a breeze as everythoing was in one hook up with labeled valves. Thanks for your help. When you are drawing the bleach into the tank, have the fresh water fill valve open. As soon as the bleach is in, close the fresh water tank fill valve and continue to fill the tank with city water. When winterizing, have the fresh water fill valve in the closed position and draw the antifreeze in through the tube. You will not be using the city water fill to winterize. Just keep pumping antifreeze in thru the tube until the task is complete.

RE: 2017 Newmar Baystar

You should see two low point hot, one cold. Those will drain your plumbing. The fresh water tank has its own drain. You have to reach through the wet bay to find it. I’ll see if I can take a pic and load it here.

RE: 2017 Newmar Baystar

Hi Mike, I do not have a Baystar, but I have a Newmar, and I think the items you are asking about are the same. The valve you are not sure about prevents the water pump from pulling from the fresh water tank. When you close that valve and open the one on the winterization hose, you create a new source of liquid for the pump to pull from. When you are sanitizing, you want your fresh water tank fill valve to be open, with the other valves positioned as just discussed. That puts your sanitizing solution in the fresh water tank. When winterizing, turn the fresh water tank fill valve to the closed position. This prevents your antifreeze from going into the fresh water tank and directs it to the plumbing system throughout the coach. With the tank drained, there is no reason to put antifreeze in there. I also bypass the water heater when winterizing, although some do not. The water heater bypass valves are located behind the water heater, usually accessible via a cabinet door under the sink. There is a Youtube channel by RVGeeks that has numerous videos I have found helpful with Newmars. They have one that specifically speaks to winterization and would be worth your while.

RE: Are class A resorts just as filled up as other RV parks?

With few exceptions, we only stay at motorcoach resorts. Yes, they are as full as any other right now. At least in our experience so far this season.

RE: What is an RV Resort??

Check out the websites for Bluewater Key and Hearthside Grove, and you’ll then know what a true RV resort is.

RE: Microwaves on inverters.

I suck at math, and I’m no electrician, but real world experience is that I can microwave on my inverter but it takes a lot longer than normal. I’m also worried about the effect of low voltage on the microwave. While I used to do it when boondocking, that was a while ago, and I haven’t done it without firing up the generator for a number of years now.

RE: Direct TV upgrade to Genie 2 knocks RV'rs out

This thread is a hot mess. I’m not certain what the central question is, but I’d like to state for the record that I have the Genie 2 system in my MH and have been using it for over a year. It works well with my Trav’lr sat dish that I used with the old Genie system that it replaced. It does NOT need to be connected to wifi to work. However, if you want to access on-demand programming, you will need to be connected to a wifi network. No different than with any other Genie system.

Strange issue with this forum

I couldn’t find anywhere else to post this, so here goes. I noticed today that if I try to go to the first page of a thread that has multiple pages, I get an error notice. Has this been discussed?
