RE: Help/ Fresh Water Tank

I have done fiberglass repair on a holding tank 4 rigs ago. Its was a crack close to the exit fitting. For me it work very well however as I was working against gravity very messy. I first cleaned the area then drilled a small hole at each end of the crack. That will stop the crack from getting any larger. Than came the fiberglass cloth, hardener etc. It held very well for as long as I had the coach. There are other products out there now that may do as good if not better job. I am sure some folks will help out with that. Good Luck, safe travels

RE: Best Company for Extended Service Plan (ESP)

I had GSESP for many years on all of my different rigs. I had my 5th wheel and tow truck covered and I am glad I did. GSESP covered ALL of the steering components on both sides of my truck, well over 2,000. I would still have GSESP on my current coach but because of the age 07 the cost of ESP was way to high. Now the garage did have to get the ok to do the work, I believe GS had someone come out to check if needed to be done. I understand why this needed to be done. It seems there are folks out there who would take advantage of the system, do you believe that! Yes they may not cover stuff but then so do a lot of house ins. policies auto polices, even warranty policies. Just know what is covered and whats not. I like GSESP because they do not require you to go to a certain place to get the work done. I.E. if you are traveling and something happens your taken care of. Good Luck safe travels

RE: Suggestions for places near New Orleans LA.

A couple years back we visited New Orleans and stayed at Bayou Seggnette SP. Great park and easy access to the city, we were there during the off season so not many folks which made it nice.

RE: Window fog

I do not believe its a mfg problem. I know my coach is a 07 diesel and the front door glass is foggy. This is due to just being old I guess. The cost of a new glass for me is about $1200. I have read of two different methods to fix the problem. One is to remove the glass separate them clean very good and put back together with caulk and tape. Yes there will be not gas in the middle but to me its a trade off worth while. The second is a glass company replacing the glass with a single pain automotive glass. If you are talking about the normal window glass can not help on that one. I would not let the glass be the issue between getting the coach you like our not.

RE: Let's beat this horse once again

We downsized about 6 years ago from a 35' 5th Wheel. Thinking we did not need something that large and wanted something easier to set up. We decided on a 30' gasser 2017 v10 new rig. It was great enough power for what we wanted pulled the car etc. The engine noise was doable but then I have a hard time hearing anyway. After traveling a year and half we knew we lost some important things in the downsize. The holding tanks on the gasser were very small black was only 26 gal.. Maybe more important was lack of storage both inside and out. We started looking for different units and found that the diesels pushers have alot more outside storage than other units. Anyway my point is you need to look at what you are going to be doing with your rig. If for weekends a gasser may work out, if for long trips I would go with diesel. As we go out for months at a time the diesel with all its storage is the correct unit for us. By the way the 2007 Itasca Meridian is so much better built than the 2017 gasser.

RE: Fl to Mo thoughts

Take hwy64 out of Memphis to hwy 65 then up to Springfield. I drove it coming back from Memphis to Branson instead of the 60 63 route. Much better drive

RE: Onan 7500 generator wont start in cold

I just had somewhat the same problem. My Onan 8000 diesel would not start. I would hold down the stop button to heat glow plug then the start button. Nothing would happen other than I would hear the fuel pump working. I cleaned everything looked at everything. My RV tech told me to start the engine let it run for 30 min or so then try and start the gen.. Sure enough the gen started. I also was plugged in but found out the coach batteries were no good. The volts would read 13.5+/- so I thought all was ok. Took batteries out and had them tested the volts were good but the amps were not there to do much of anything. I learned its the amps that to the work. Just another note the gen also started with the motor running and the coach batteries disconnected. Get batteries checked

RE: Oil rubbed bronze Handheld Showerhead

To me the Oxygenics 26488 BodySpa RV Handheld Shower is the best. I have put it in my past 3 RVs and have no complaints. Water pressure is great vs. water usage. For you however it only comes in chrome and white. I think you are going to have to make a choice.

RE: Slide rubber

If they are not doing the job, its time to replace. The water leakage will do more harm than the time spent replacing. Check out Steele Rubber for replacement.

RE: Mt Rushmore and Yellostone National Park

I am a big fan of Fort WeLikit which is just outside of Custer. To me its worth looking into.

RE: I just got the new RV Magazine

Some of you will remember the "Highways" magazine that I believe came out quarterly. That really had some good information in it, and worth reading. Then GS combined it with the Trailer life and MH magazine, which as you know is mostly selling rv stuff. Over the months the articles stopped and then it just became a sales magazine. Now to the beginning of 2021 a great idea from GS/CW lets combine all magazines into one and save money. So we received ours like most did the other day. I gave my DW the first chance to page through it. When it was my turn to look through I was trying to find the stories, the good things to read, stuff other than the merchandise. I made a comment to my DW how stupid this magazine was compared to past things. I was then inform by her that this was a "CATALOG" not a magazine, much like the old Sears was. I told her she was 100% correct so i put it where the old Sears Catalogs would go. Right in the Crapper.

RE: Warm weather traveling

With my three class a's I have always ran the gen.,I start the motor then start the gen. unplug and off I go. The reason for me makes sense. The coach stays cool all the time, this way once stopped with no dash air the coach is already cool. I also like to keep the frig running on 120v with the gen. running my frig stays cold also. When stopping and want something warmed up to eat in the microwave its ready to go. Generators are made to run the little fuel they use to me is not worth it. But then I am not concerned about my fuel mileage. I have the coach to use if I get 5mpg or 50 mpg I am going to use the coach. Enjoy

RE: Antifreeze no longer pink

I have had a bottle sitting around for over a year and its still pink. Option 1 call the company Option 2 go buy new stuff. Is the cost of good antifreeze worth the possible destruction freezing could do in your rig.

RE: zip lock sun screen on manual awning

Not having one of the sun blocker awnings, it brings up a question. Does the sun blocker stay on the roller tube when rolling up the awning? If not then go with sliding the strap to the opposite of the tube when installing the sun blocker. If you roll the sun blocker up with the awning, I would work on some method to have the roll up strap in the center. I would not roll up the awning using the strap to far off center. I think that would cause the awning to roll up uneven.

RE: Portable air compressor

I guess if you are stuck on the 12v models the 450 would be the way to go. I on the other hand would stay away from 12v models and go with a 120v plug in model. I have used a Fini air compressor for many years, on 19.5 to 22.5 tires. It does take some time to get up to 100psi but I believe you will be happier with a 120v unit. I got the Fini at one of the big box stores about 6 years ago.

RE: Memphis

Tom Sawyer is the park to head to. We visited Memphis 2 years ago and did not find anything you are talking about at Beale street. Now we did go there during the day so maybe at night. The Sun Records tour is well worth it also.

RE: Quiet heater that doesn’t drain batteries ?

I do not dry camp so really can not give much help on alternative heat source. I would however stay away from any type of propane radiant heat, such as the Buddy Heater. Your unit is to air tight to use that indoors. I would hope that after time you will get used to the on board furnace. Just remember also that it uses a lot of propane so have a good supply handy. Depending where you camp a generator may be an answer but then at night that noise could be worse.
