RE: Fuel economy

I like others try and stay at 65 and let the computer do the rest. Not so much price but easy in and out for fuel. I am not a fan of truck stop fuel stops, but I have found a few that the price was lower than the guy down the street. I keep the generator running so as for mileage it really is not a good figure plus I do not care. I have the rig so will use it no matter what the price or what the mileage.

RE: When to Shut the Fridge Off

Mine gets shut off when done for the year. The short time you are at the places you listed does not make that much difference. Would you turn the frig off if you were stopped in traffic on a hill?

RE: USA crossing to Canada from NY

To answer your question; They will take either! We just finished a month long trip going in and out of Canada. We used our credit card for all purchases in Canada. Let the bank handle the conversion, in fact you will get a better rate that way. We stayed 4 days at the Jellystone park at Niagara Falls loved it. If you are going there get the WE GO pass it comes with all ready paid tickets for the sights.

RE: Missouri DMV inspectors

I know Reliable does them. I believe that any of the ones set up for cars can inspect, however I may be wrong on that one. I would stop by one of the car ones and ask if they do MH.

RE: 2006 Excursion

I have a Norcold in my 07 Meridian, that stopped working. I called the mobile tech. and was told to try this. Remove the Thermister (that's the thing clipped to the cooling fin. It should unplug right at the frig. light. This will cause the light to go out. Turn the frig on and see if it cools. It may take awhile but will not hurt anything. If unit cools the Thermister was bad. You will need the model number and serial number of the norcold to get another one. If unit does not cool you have more problems so call or go to a repair spot.

RE: C Tables ??

DW just went to wallmart and picked up a foot stool/storage cube/table for about $35.00. They had two colors black or tan, we store the dogs stuff in it, turn the top over for a hard surface table. Its about a 18x18 square. Works great.

RE: 2018 Thor Ace 30.3 Subwoofer location

RE: Ozark resort

If its park ownership you are looking for that's a great choice. However for the park ownership money Treasure Lake to me is an over all better buy. Now if its a campground you are looking for Branson has many to choose from. Thinking about the size of your rig, you will need to really ask will it fit! A lot of Branson parks are tight. You might want to try the city park, they have great flat sights. Americas Best seems to be the place a lot of folks go to. The COE park on Table Rock lake is also a great park. Just come down to Branson and enjoy all the fun you can have.

RE: Air Conditioning Problems

To help with the cooling I went and made Styrofoam inserts for all of the roof vents. There is a lot of sunlight and heat that comes through those exhaust vents. That seemed to help a lot. Also get some type of reflective material and put in the windshield. That windshield is like a heat producing machine. Like said before about the 20deg. difference is true. However if you feel the need to get up and clean off the condenser fins. Be carefully not to bend the fins, use good but not strong water pressure and a very soft brush. If you have a lot of bent fins that need to be straighten go to a plumbing supply shop and ask for a "fin comb" its a tool made to straighten the fins.

RE: Norcold fridge not cooling

I had a cooling problem with my 4door Norcold a couple weeks ago. It turned out to be the thermistor. That's the thing clipped to the second fin on the ref. If you can get the model number and serial number off the frig any rv parts store can get the part or may even have it. Mine cost $24.00. I was also told the way to find out if its the thermistor is to unplug it from the frig. Behind the light should be a plug in connection unplug (light will go off) and see it frig temp starts to go down. It will take some time for all of this to happen. Good luck

RE: Brake controller for my diesel pusher

To me a lot would depend on the size of the trailer in relationship to the quality of the controller. I am by far no expert as my brake controllers were installed by the dealership. I asked for the least expensive ones for my tow dolly. When I had a 5th wheel the quality was a little better as I was stopping more with less.

RE: Short MH's

We downsized from a 35' 5th wheel 3 slides to a ACE 29.3. Now that's not your 25.6 Vegas but close. The ACE had a full body slide, I had no problems with that as long as you follow the mfg guidelines. The main one is NEVER stop the in or out operation until the slide is in the full in or out position. Then you still have to push the button for the motors to sync. but again that's really not a problem. As for towing I towed a KIA on a dolly no problem. For me the ride was not bad, quality of workmanship so, so. With all that being said we made a mistake and downsized (for uus) to much. We were not comfortable with it on long trips of 3+ weeks. It was great for a week or so. We ended up trading for a older, bigger coach.

RE: Topper under mattress

Having the same problem. Our old unit we started with the topper on top,then moved it to the bottom and had great success. We have traded units and am having no luck with the topper on top or bottom. I have come to think the mattress plays a bigger part in this than thought. It took us many months of looking for a mattress for the house just can not think of looking for one for the camper but think its coming to that.

RE: Replacing all my bulbs with LEDs

Can I ask a question, did you find the leds put off more heat than the standard bulbs.

RE: New air conditioner problem

If both of your old ACs would run on the system, I would say that who ever installed the new units did not install correctly. Some how they must have not wired the intellitec climate control correctly. Or that you need a new climate control board.

RE: Euerka Springs AR to Branson MO

The 62, 412, 65 is a good route to take. The hardest is getting onto 65 from 412. Sit back and enjoy the drive.

RE: going from Class A to TT or Fifth wheel

A couple years ago we went the other way, 5th wheel to Class A. Have not regretted one bit. The 5er was a large 35' had a 1 ton dully to pull it with. The truck road like a truck the wife was never happy with the ride. Even though I had the 5er for years sometimes the backing got to be a challenge I am glad that part is over. From me the trade to Class A was happy wife happy life.
