RE: RV steps don't retract when engine is started

Check to make sure the magnet that controls the door switch is still in place. If the magnet is missing, the system will think the door is still open. I believe he stated that the steps extended and retracted when the wall switch was on, which means the Magnet is working. IF they do NOT, then yes, his door magnet switch is the problem. Doug Good call Doug, I missed the part about the door working correctly with the door switch.

RE: %#[email protected]^ critters!

Here are the recommendations from the CDC for cleaning up after rodents. CDC Cleaning up after rodents Great LOL. Now his mice will be running around the RV 6" apart wearing little surgical masks while facing the possibility of being locked down by Dr Mauci. Putting rodent bait out is easy. They come running. You know what else is easy to bait for? Science Deniers. All you have to do is utter three simple letter: CDC. They come running! Several people in this thread said the exact same thing as the CDC. Use bleach solution to sanitize.

RE: Battery operated fan quesiton ?

My solution is a portable fan with built in battery that is rechargeable from a USB plug. Charge it when there is engine power, or solar power. We also have a small fan that takes two D cells, and a larger fan that takes six D cells (and has a 110V adapter).

RE: Yellowstone second thoughts.

If you have reservations inside the park, you shouldn't need to worry about the people waiting at the entrances (once you are inside). You are not going to commute every day from outside the park. And you're an early riser, so you will be ahead of most people. Go for it!

RE: Bryce Canyon NP to the Northeast

It's an incredible drive. We did in in a 30 Class C with no problems. We went from Bryce to Capitol Reef. So can't comment on the part of Hwy 24 East of Capitol Reef. Yes, you need to keep an eye on the weather. We had snow at the highest point, saw lightning coming down towards Torrey, and hail when we got into Torrey. I tried to record some of the drive but ran out of memory in the dashcam. The views are that great. If you, or your passengers are squeamish about drop-offs or driving next to cliffs, you need to balance that with the incredible scenery. Driving the Hogback, the passengers will get to enjoy the scenery, but whoever is driving will be watching the road. But my answer is do it! It's worth every minute.

RE: Happy Campers no longer available in CA?

I'm no expert, but it must contain one (or more) of these chemicals: Chemicals that CA SB-317 bill bans: Formaldehyde Bronopol Dowicil Formalin Glutaraldehyde Paraformaldehyde Para-dichlorobenzene Benzene Toluene Xylene Ethylene glycol 1,1,1-trichloroethane Trichloroethylene Perchloroethyleneā€¯ https://uniquecampingmarine.com/blogs/news/california-sb-317

RE: Stainless wheel liners.

My old ones were literally hub caps. Just pry up at the edges. My current ones are held on by the lug nuts. And there is a tool to pull off the center cap.

RE: Reserve California website question?

The website did change to a new "improved" version. I remember last September that when you logged on, you could use the old version, or choose to use the new version.

RE: Needles to Quartzsite?

We did this route two years ago. We chose the Lake Havasu City route. Mainly to see London Bridge (not worth it). But we also chose that route because we thought it would be more scenic. Yes, there is some traffic through Lake Havasu City, and it gets a little slow and curvy around the south end of the lake and Parker Dam. But I still think it was a better choice for the scenery.

RE: Holding Tank Terminations

See the note from jpmyers above. The plumbing is installed incorrectly. It does not matter if cap is removed or not. If the gray valve is opened first with the black valve closed nothing will come out, and both tanks will be connected to each other. Levels will equalize, and nothing will come out of the dump hose. And accidents do happen. I don't assume life is perfect. I have seen the disaster where someone removes the cap when the valves were not closed, and the tanks were full.

RE: Holding Tank Terminations

There is nothing stopping someone from putting the plumbing together like this. But... If the black tank is full, and the gray tank is empty, and the gray tank valve is opened, it means that the black water would back flow into the gray tank until they are both at the same level. So, half of the black water would be in the gray tank. Doesn't sound like a good thing! Now before someone says you should never open valves in that order, never underestimate the possibility that it could happen.

RE: Holding Tank Terminations

Doesn't sound correct to me. There should be two valves. And as already mentioned, it would mean that both tanks would be connected at some point, either during dumping, or all the time. I guess it could be possible but doesn't sound good.

RE: A TATRA Off Road Motorhome

Tatra has been around for a long time. They build serious trucks. Tune into the Dakar coverage the first week of January to see them get airborne. Tatra Dakar Trucks

RE: Grey tank ABS pipe leak

I would try your suggestion for a Fernco coupling. They come in hundreds of sizes and styles. You might also look at how you can better support the pipe to reduce movement.

RE: Odd CG map

Looks like they are using the same map designer as Recreation.gov. And that is not a compliment!

RE: Trouble finding alcohol free RV antifreeze this season?

Well, I just went and checked the alcohol-containing RV anti-freeze I have, and nowhere does have a "Flammable" on the label, and it does contain a certain percentage of ethyl alcohol. However it does say in small letters near the ingredients that it is "Combustible", which I think is considerably different from "Flammable". The only difference between "Combustible" & "Flammable" is the flash point. I also checked a couple of MSDS sheets for the two types of RV antifreeze. Both with the same freeze point rating. Flash point for ethanol antifreeze - 110F. Flash point for Propylene Glycol antifreeze - 228F. FLAMMABLE VS. COMBUSTIBLE LIQUIDS NFPA splits flammable liquids into two types: flammable and combustible. Whereas OSHA only has one type: flammable liquids. Either way, these are liquids that can burn, or rather, the vapor they give off can burn.
