RE: roof air

How ofter do you clean the filters. They should be cleaned every month when in use. The dirt thay gets past them will make the evaporator coil smell pretty bad after a short time.

RE: Water Heater

When I had a LP water heater I always had the electric element on. I now have Aqua Heat and only occasionally turn on the electric element.

RE: A/C Issue

A weak run capacitor could cause the amps to go up and open the thermal switch (klixon) when it cools and resets the compressor would start again. Just a thought.

RE: Newmar Dutch Aire 4304

Can't say it that price is fair without alot more info but as for parts, there should be no issue with getting replacement parts. Nothing on those coaches was proprietary other than the monogram.

RE: Serpentine belt

Assuming you mean because of a locked up air conditioning compressor, then that is quite a job, If the compressor is driven with the serpentine belt, when it locks up it will distroy the belt no matter how new it is.

RE: Class A-what year is it?

I just recently registered a 2019 and that is what my Florida title shows. It left the factory in August 2018 as a 2019 model and it rides on a 2017 freightliner chassis. Florida registers the house and not the chassis.

RE: Rust Around Basement Doors on Power Bridge Chassis

Sometimes its salt air, sometimes road salt and sometimes it the lack of care by the coach builder, not prepping the metal corectly. I've seen rust on the chassis frames on new coaches before. Surface rust can be delt with though.

RE: Class A automatic leveling never works!

I've owned 3 coaches with Powergear automatic levelors, never had an issue. Most of the time we look for level sites to begin with. a few times we ended up on sites that were pitched and used them manually, useally with wood blocks under the feet. Seems strange that an RV tech hasn't been able to find the issue and make repairs.

RE: Coleman mach 8 A/C

I haven't had any squarrel cage fans come apart but I did have the condenser fan blade break when the grommets that the motor mounts on failed. Happened to a friend recently too. That was on a 15" model. My new coach has a totally different condenser fan set up and is now called an assembly. Motor, blades and bracket are all one assembly now.

RE: Propane fill for parked motorhome?

Our local propane company will fill an RV tank but they charge a higher price per gallon when delivered. Odds are that someone in the area will be filling a large tank at their home close by and they could fill when in the area without a special trip.

RE: Windy today

I once owned a F53 that was 37 feet long and handled the wind just fine. It was heavy and only got 5.5 mpg (on a good day) but wind was never an issue. Sometimes, I miss that coach.

RE: GoodSams Early Renewal $50 Gift Certificates

I think this is how capitalism is supposed to work, I like it. If socialism ever takes hold, we won't need to worry about buying things on line or in stores. Had a friend that once found a 20 dollar bill in the road. He complained all day that it wasn't a 50.

Best in which way?

RE: Diamond Shield damage by Love Bugs

I'm on my 3rd coach with Diamond Shield or its equivalent and never had any pitting from love bugs. I do wash the love bugs off as soon as I arrive at destination because I know how acidic they are. Sorry to hear you had damage. How many days were they on there?

RE: Availability of service

Thats terrible that you had to wait 7 days F-53, V-10 is one of the easist starters I've ever changed. Ford dealers must be really busy in CA.

RE: $700 replacement toilet????

Depending on the toilet, $700 isn't so pricy. My coach has Tecma Mercerator toilets which cost $1,400 plus installation. You may have Vaccuflush toilets and they aren't cheap.

RE: Problem with Extended Warranty

Typically they try to deny all extended warranty claims. Especially the ones that are expensive. Even if it is covered they hope you will just go away and pay it yourself. How can anyone assume that the thermostat just went bad without overheating the engine and giving you some type of overtemp indication. I once had a thermostat stick shut on a 90 degree day in Florida and it never caused my radiator to leak. If that thermostat was bad and you kept driving you would loose a head gasket way before it would rupture a radiator with a fan blowing across it. Most extended warrantys are a waist of money

RE: DriveShaft spline showing

Yes, seeing an inch or 2 is totally normal.

RE: 22,5" rim torque specs

450 is correct but a lot of big tire shops just run them on with a large impact and send them out the door.
