Constant Convertor?

Hi all—new to us 2000 Sunline TT. Installed new battery two weeks ago. Unit is plugged in and the only thing on is the refer on AC. The cooling fan in the converter runs constantly and has done so for the last week or so. Have had many RVs and never had one where the converter fan ran constantly. What is going on?

RE: is weldwood contact adhesive strong enough?

Weldwood is pretty good stuff and, from experience, I would say you have a 50/50 chance of success in using it. I built a Florida room for a friend who lives full time in Florida and had the same problem. I used Weldwood in putting up some of the moldings and, 10 years later, most of them stayed in place. I believe the ones that needed to be re-done were due to applicator error.

RE: Opinion: 1986 Pace Arrow 27FT Motorhome Chevy Chassis

We owned that model back in the day. As I remember, there were several things that bugged me and made me trade for something else. Overall, it was a good unit and fun to drive. The roof design made not sense to me as it had a radiused edge all around, that, when you were parked dead level, created a swimming pool of water on the roof. Constantly sealing was in order to deal with constant leaks. Another constant was the hot start problem and the exhaust manifold problem that the 454 engines of that era were plagued with. The unit sounds like a good deal at the price and if you are ready to deal with the challenges, go for it!

RE: Rubber roof glue?

Hi—you can use a non-solvent based contact cement. Make sure both surfaces are dry and coat with the non-solvent contact cement. You have to be careful laying the rubber back down as once it makes contact, it cannot be moved. Sort of like applying contact paper.

RE: Benny=18.2 volts?

Darn autocorrect—tag line should read “genny”

Benny=18.2 volts?

Working on a friend’s 1999 Pleasure-Way with an Onan 2800. Generator fires up, puts out 110 volts (?) everything AC works. DC volt meter shows 18.2 volts with genny running. Is the normal or does the genny need work? Thanks.

RE: Android vs Apple

My vote is for Apple. Having had both systems, we find the IOS on IPhones to be much more user friendly and intuitive than the Android platform. Same with the Windows computers—can’t believe we resisted Apple for so long!

RE: Many paged forum?

Thanks Schlep1967! Never thought of that—so used to clicking on “newest” that I never realized how much more there is on the active site.

Many paged forum?

As a long-time member and daily follower of the forum, I am wondering whatever happened to the very active and many paged forum of yore?? Used to be four or five pages, now we are lucky if we get a page at best. What gives? Sorry if this is posted in the wrong place and hope it will be moved to a more appropriate category.

RE: leaking sunroof

I ordered a magnetic sheet which I place over the sunroof. The material is white, the vehicle is white so it matches without being seen. Want to use the sunroof, simply pull off the sheet, roll it up and carry it until the vehicle is parked again. The magnetic sheet, which I bought on Amazon, stays on the roof while driving, no matter how fast I drive. Simple solution, stops the leak and still allows me use of the sunroof.

RE: Roof coatings.

Having tried several over the years, I second the vote for Hengs. If you can repair the damage and provide a stable roof, Hengs will provide good secure coverage.

AC—oil or no oil?

Five year old Dometic rooftop air has required service by Dometic each year since installed. Seems to need a new control unit each time. Anyway, thought I’d do a little PM like blowing out the fins, etc. I mentioned that I was going to oil the motor shaft and was told by a self-proclaimed expert that I should not do this? What say you?

RE: Best way to bring shine back to fiberglass body.

Do a forum search on Red Max Pro or ZEP wet look floor finish. I have used everything on many old Fiberglas units and find that you can’t beat the look using this product. Preparation takes the most time as you want everything to be as clean as possible before applying the liquid floor wax. Once you are done, the look will last for a long time before it will need reapplication.

RE: Plastic toilet and sink cleaning?

Thetford makes a cleaner called Aqua Klean (sp?) which works well on cleaning all things plastic. Plastics and abrasives of any kind do not mix!

RE: Dual pane windows....

Yes, less condensation with dual pane, but you can control moisture even if you have single pane windows.

RE: Dual pane windows....

Count me in with a vote against the dual pane (PAIN) window! After 25 years of full-timing in 13 different rigs some with and some without dual panes, I would rather use extra heat/cooling than deal with the problems that come with dual pane windows. Our current MH, a ‘99 Bounder, has had almost every window removed and repaired over the years and even the repaired ones are in need of attention again. At $200 to $400 each for repair, that money would go a long way paying for extra propane or kilowatts! No other benefits from my experience!

Leave slide out?

Hi all—just bought a 2010 Bighorn with three slides, that will be parked on a leased lot and lived in for six months of the year in Florida. The question is can it be left parked with the slides out permanently or do I have to bring the slides in when we are not here. There are no slide toppers. What say you??

RE: 1996 Pleasure Way RV, Exel Wide Body Dodge Ram 3500.

We own a ‘97 PW and, after owning a Roadtrek, we find that we much prefer the PW. I agree with checking the overall condition and doing your research before the purchase. The Dodge van chassis is a proven item as is its dependability. I say “go for it”!
