RE: What size?

I have always used the 15/16th socket, with a small extension.

RE: 2003 Coleman Caravan

As others have said an owners manual in pretty much any form is useless. The reason the mfg's have so many units that are the same but different it would cost them to much to have a unit specific manual. With that said you will be much better off getting the model numbers of all the items you want to know about, i.e. frig, furnace, water heater, stove and the list could go on. Do your google search and you should find what you need. The things you will not find are plumbing diagrams or elect. Good luck and enjoy

RE: Thor (ACE) thumbs up or down?

We had a 2017 29.3 ACE for little over 2 years. We wanted to down size from a 35' 5th wheel. As for the ACE we knew it was not the top of the line, however all of the appliance, etc were the same as in better units. Had some problem with the paneling coming loose, again I felt ok with that nothing a little glue and nails could not solve. The original TVs are junk, I can not think of the name off hand but it starts with an "A". The black holding tank is only 26 gal. and the bath sink feeds into that. It really does not take much time to fill. Folks complained about how it drives. I had no problem, must have been the Ozark Mountain roads that help with that. The V10 really handled the coach without much problem. I pulled a KIA on a dolly for many miles with it. Storage was a down factor for us. After going out for about 2 weeks we decided we downsized a little to much. We do not carry much but the ACE just does not have much storage either in or out. All in all if I had to do it again would I buy one. Do not know but it would be on my list.

RE: Generator for full time use in destination trailer.

For what you are talking about, I would go along with what Drew said about the temp electric at the build site. That for many reasons makes more sense. If a generator is a must, for that long of a period of time, I would call the "Generic" folks. You might as well go big and get something to use as back up for the house. Will your house have propane or natural gas? See if either company can run a temp line for the Generic while you are building. With that said I would try and do the temp electric service. Much easier and maybe safer.

RE: Dometic RM2652 refrigerator dead

I am not familiar with the Dometic, as I have Norcolds. Anyway heres my first guess. Do the 120v outlets work, maybe the gfi that the frig is plugged into is tripped. Check both the 120v breaker panel and the 12v fuse box. My Norcold on the outside access door has a circuit board with two fuses maybe the Dometic has the same type of set up. On the Norcold it takes both 120 and 12v to make it work maybe Dometic is the same.

RE: Motorhome vs travel trailer for cross country with pets??

I think B.O. is on the right track for you. If you get a good med. to heavy duty van a long with a med size camping trailer you should be in great shape. You should be able to find both at good prices.

RE: Recommend a campground in Missouri

In the Branson area most parks do not have what you are looking for. I would give Americas Best a call and get more info. They are a very nice park https://www.abc-branson.com/

RE: Mark Twain Natl. Forest, MO

Mark Twain National Forest is really really big. It more or less starts in St Louis and runs diagonally down to the s.w. part of Missouri. It drifts over I44 for a part but mostly stays south of it. There are some good spots to see from St. Louis to Branson, Hermon south. St. Louis of course has the Budweiser Brewery. Herman is an old German town to look into https://www.lazydaycampground.com/ this campground is a great place to call home when visiting Herman. Although Herman does have a good looking city park, I have never stayed there. Then theres Branson with all sorts of things to do. We have alot of great RV parks here and really to many to mention. The COE is a great park as is Americas Best. With three of you, you may want to make reservations early. As for whats in between its really hard to say. Come and enjoy

RE: Christmas vacation

Depends what you want to do. Branson MO has great Christmas stuff going on. Silver Dollar City, our first class amusement park, does a great Christmas. Its worth checking out, RV parks are open also.

RE: water pump replacement

So by "stop working" do you mean it no longer is running, no power to it no pumping sound. Or do you mean its running but no water is coming out. If the pump is not running at all check the inline fuse, it should be located somewhere inline close to the pump. Make sure all of your other 12v fuses are good. If pump is running but no water coming out check the screen filter located on the pump. Its a screw on looking clear cap, unscrew and clean screen. Do you have water in the fresh water holding tank Good Luck

RE: Reviews or model advice

You are going to find in your adventure, that everybody feels their unit is the best one. Each mfg will have its good and bad, you will read more bad stuff about units than you will good. Its just the way it is, its easier to complain about something than it is to say good things. You need to do your search by looking at as many units as you can. Find something that works for you, then start reading and asking questions about the unit. I think you will find that helpful.

RE: Fridge issue

If you have found and reset the GFI's get a meter and see if you are getting power to the 120v outlet the frig is plugged into. Lets say you have power at the outlet. You will need to take off the black cover from the control board for the frig. It should be located on the back side of the frig, but you can get to it through the outside access panel. The control panel will have two fuses one being a long one and the other a push in type. Sorry I do not know the correct name for the two types of fuses. Check them make sure they are both good. You did not say if you reset the breaker for the frig on the breaker panel. You may want to check that, turn it off then back on. Good Luck

RE: R-Pod 196, 2021

I would turn the pump on and listen for a sound of some sort. It could be anywhere in your rig. A few other points that may help. Post this in one of the "trailer" forums. Folk there may have a better idea. You may also want to visit the forest river forums.

RE: RV sale pending, but we found evidence of mice...

Mice in campers is an on going problem all over. Those little folks want to get in out of the weather and a camper is one of the best places. A 5th wheel does not have as much wiring as a Motor Home so thats a plus. It sounds like this camper is what you are looking for, I would ask the seller about it. The answer will most likely be they knew nothing about it. You might what to ask seller if they would either pay or take money off for a pest control company come and take care of the problem. Mice can get into the smallest places, when winterizing mouse precaution is part of the plan. I use alot of mouth balls, make sure all of the entirety points are blocked off. I also have the sonic pest things plugged into my outlets.

RE: questions on parking dp vs gas on grass

If I read your question correct, with the motor running the air bags will inflate. This will cause the coach to raise up, which will make it higher off the ground. Thus over all height will be higher than gasser. Once you turn things off one of two things will happen air bags will stay up or deflate . I have an older coach my air bags will deflate as soon as I start the jacks to go down. If I do not do the jacks the bags will slowly loose air. For ground to frame height remember dp tires are larger also. I get really worried any time I deal with grass. Either driving on or parking on. Was at a rally couple years back, was parked on grass. Saw three dp sunk up to axels trying to get out. My jacks with enlarged foot print sunk two inches. You be the judge

RE: Fall color trip to north country

Can not state about know, but in Mid August there was not a problem traveling those states. We traveled from Missouri to North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin and the U.P. All places where very strict on masks etc. we felt very comfortable up there.

RE: Branson

Branson has alot of great RV parks, however most are very tight for larger rigs. I would say the ABC is your best bet. https://www.abc-branson.com/ Treasure Lake is another good one, its a member park but I beleive they let all folks in. Keep in mind that from 5-11 November Branson Celebrates Veterans with a week long string of goings on. This brings all sorts of folks to the area. I believe even with the Covid they still plan on going on with everything. Have not heard anything different.
