RE: Vermont Campgrounds Closed

Both public and private?

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”!

RE: fridge removal and replacement

Hi—we just did ours and replaced it with a residential model. Have done many over the years. Do you have specific questions that I can answer for you?

H L quality?

I use the word “quality” with hesitation whe talking about an RV, but, any opinions out there about the H L line of destination trailers especially the Hyline models?

HVAC/where to start?

1999 Bounder, Intellitec system, does not work automatically. Heat will work with thermostat and work automatically to set termperature. Cooling will not work automatically. Units cool the motorhome well, but will not shut off when set on automatic. I have replaced both sensors with no result. As the system is obsolete and parts are not available, where do I start to correct and make the system work automatically to maintain the desired temperature? PS-I would post a picture if I could figure out how!

RE: Down to Road trek?

Our experience with Roadtrek was that we found them to be “quirky”. As an experienced RVer, we found the septic hookups, the utilities layout, the fresh water system, the charging system and the shower all to be Roadtrek peculiar. Most other B manufacturers conform to standard RV layouts as far as hookups are concerned. We have found Pleasureway our favorite of all the B vans out there.

RE: 1994 Dodge 350 Class B Pleasure Way Van

Hi—we have a 1997 Pleasureway Excel on the Dodge 3500 chassis. It is wonderful in every way! We are full-time RVers and have been for the past 25 years. Having owned everything from a tent to a large Class A motorhome, we now travel in our Pleasureway. Ours has the 5.2/318 engine and we do not find it underpowered at all. Besides that, it gets a consistent 15-17 mpg every time. I don’t think you can go wrong with that unit. If you have any specific questions, please don’t hesitate to PM me for help. Good Luck!

RE: Roadtrek 190 Popular

Anyone who is handy could fashion one for you. As an alternative, you could use a prefab kitchen cabinet of the right size. The added storage space is worth its weight in gold—our 170 was great and the added closet made it even better. Try to retain the ability to remove the cabinet and restore the seating if you can.

RE: How to store the camper in Florida

Thanks Notsobigjoe! Interesting and useful information—I’m going to add it to my regimen for storage both in Florida and in Pennsylvania!

Hey Notsobigjoe—what is this “suspend” of which you speak?

RE: ONAN—again!

Thanks Retraite—I have always checked the oil by screwing in the dipstick. I am going to give you suggestion a try and see if it makes a difference!
chast 07/29/19 01:35pm Class B - Camping Van Conversions

Microlite 2.8 in our ‘97PW will start fine, run for about 5 minutes then quit. I exercise it monthly under load for two hours at a time. Use Seafoam in main gas tank regularly. Seems like it wants to quit when running down the road, especially when the weather temperatures are in the high 80’s/90sF. It doesn’t seem to quit when the vehicle is parked and level. Anybody have any idea why this is doing this and where to begin to fix it? Thanks!
