RE: Fish bowl cooling class A

You say the roof a/c's are high capacity and cool well when parked. If the heat is an issue while traveling and not when parked check you firewall for air leaks. Often manufactures are sloppy sealing penetration's for hoses, wires and steering columns. Air pressure on the front of a coach can push a lot of hot air through a coach and out slide seals, windows and around fans.

RE: Inside sewer smell

Commonly called "studor vents" by the commercial plumbers around here.

RE: A few mods done today

All good mods. Nice work on the vents. Looks like they were meant to be there from the factory. One of my favorite hobbies is doing changes and upgrades to the coach.

RE: oil leak

Running a quart low can't cause a leak and really won't hurt anything but it is better to keep it on the full line. Like others have suggested, you probably spilled a little.

RE: Xantrex Freedom 458 - Equalizing at 16.3 Volts

12 volt electronics can handle 16.3 voltage and since wattage is voltage x amps (current) motors will draw less amps while resistance heaters will be a bit hotter though not enough to hurt anything. Quality LED lights will have no issue with a little more voltage.

RE: Bugs on Windshield

I've found bug removal to be a pain in the a$$ so I installed a small pressure washer behind the generator slide out. Its plumbed with PEX to a cold water line and wired to the inverter. I just open the slide and pull out the hose. Makes short work of the bugs as long as I do it at every fuel stop before they bake on.

I am no longer with Safeco due to price increases but had them a few years back. I did have a claim and found them to be very professional. Very please with how things were handled everything and not at all like General Insurance.

RE: Replacing water filtration under

The filter housing for under the sink is not any different than what most of us has in our wet bay. So yes you can get a new one from a big box hardware store. The filter cartage makes the difference in the level of filtration. I filter at the water bay to keep sand and crud out of my tank and system. Under the kitchen sink for taste and odor and in the refrigerator for drinking water. On the road you can never filter too much because you never know the water quality you're dealing with.

RE: Aux Start to Boost Cranking Amps

That's confusing. You said if the engine is running and if it is, the alternator should be suppling the power for the levelers. The alternator should be able to supply all the power needed. To answer your question...yes you can use the boost switch with the engine running.

RE: Thor Structural Warranty Experience

Thor is creating their own reputation. If it isn't good, its because of things like this. Any manufacturer can have a problem. Its how they deal with it that makes them good or bad.

RE: Any option for re-filling MH Propane Tank from Small Tank?

Just so you understand how LP is transferred from tank to tank, it is pumped as a liquid and never dumped into a tank. If you don't think that you could navigate your 40 foot coach into a facility, maybe you could arrange to meet a LP truck outside the campground and get a fill-up.

3rd Issue of RV Magazine

Received my issue of RV magazine today. Marcus has a welcome page and says he hears us loud and clear. He says they are still working on things to get it right but apparently this hasn't happened on the 3rd issue. It still hasn't won me over. Must be edited by someone who has never owned an RV.

RE: Cost of engine replacement or rebuild

That Porsche engine probably came out from under the car. Maybe 10 thousand in parts and 30 thousand in labor LoL!!

RE: Spark Plug Confusion ??

Generally there several plugs that will probably work fine for the same engine but if it were my coach, I would pull 1 plug and shop for that same number plug and eliminate any guess work

RE: Do you let you kids drive your motorhome

My son can use my motorhome anytime he wishes as he is very responsible. He does own his own motorhome so unless his is down for some reason, there won't be a need. My son-in-law still needs some time to learn responsibility but I would lend him the money to rent one if he ever asked. Lending it to anyone else is out of the question.

RE: Ac engine compressor

Yes the hoses are expensive. They were installed by the motorhome builder and OEM parts are always over priced. Your other option would be to take them off and have a local shop make them. Since these are high pressure hoses it will still be expensive. If I remember correctly a friend replaced just 1 hose on his F-53 chassis and REV sold it to him. It was over $200.00 2 years ago.

RE: Need an Education

What is your definition of a long time? When we leave we let the engine run long enough to air up, about 3 minutes and never more than 5 even bringing the slides in and levelers up. Same for arriving. Engine needs to be running to level and move the slides out. If someone has a gas RV without levelers and a small slide, 5 minutes might seem like a long time.

RE: Class A travel without interstates

I have no issue with interstate highways but when I have the time to avoid a large city, I certainly do. I have driven some great US highways around cities like Kansas city and Atlanta and have also driven through those same cities. I can tell you going around them was much more pleasurable of a drive.

RE: RV magazine

Well I for one will keep my subscription. I also don't like the new magazine at all but TP is getting hard to get around here again.

RE: Aquahot issues

You have 3 pumps in the Aquahot. The pump to the right of the burner is the stir pump, See if that one is running. If the stir pump fails you wont get much hot water at the faucet. You also may have a remote booster pump, mine is on the opposite of the coach, I don't know where Monaco would put one but if it isn't working, you won't get heat up front. Aquahot has a great service manual on line that gives a lot of info that helps with troubleshooting
