RE: Roof coatings.

I used liquid EPDM the first time and it lasted about 5 years. This last year I applied Tropicool. Made by Henry’s I think. Available at Home Depot. I did repair a tree tear prior to the coating. No leaks. My roof is 19 years old now so the next coating will be a new roof.

RE: LOUD Transmission drone at 58-62MPH

I have a very similar sound in my 2001 P32 Fleetwood Flair that almost duplicates your issue. I have had the noise since the coach was new. Now have 50,000 miles and nothing has changed. Serviced yearly regardless of mileage. Oil, grease, etc. Tranny also serviced. I have checked everything that has been mentioned so far with the exception of removing the driveline to check u joints and have found zero issues. Even replaced the fluid in the rear end. Fluid was clean with no signs of abnormal wear or particles, etc. I have come to the conclusion that it is simple harmonics caused by extended driveline and possibly poor design. But can’t confirm that. I do know that with the RV unloaded, the sound is not present. That’s my reason for design considerations. I will be following this thread so keep us informed as to what you come up with.

RE: Class A LP Tank

If you prefer low pressure, make sure that none of your appliances (i.e. Firepit, BBQ, Etc.) do not have a regulator attached. Propane does not like to be double regulated.

RE: Best way to bring shine back to fiberglass body.

I have used Poly Glow with good results.

RE: Question about Onan Generator

My battery for my generator is the same battery that provides power to my coach and receives a charge from the converter/ charger when the generator is running or when plugged into 120v.

RE: Supplementary lighting

Here’s another website to help understand what your issue may be. Also, check out Inexpensive well built auxiliary lighting.

RE: Out of State Purchase - Private Party

And be prepared to deal with your state for bringing in an out-of-state vehicle. Might try to tax you. We are talking about California. Of course they WILL collect a sales tax and a vehicle registration fee. Check out This link should take you to the DMV page outlining an out of state purchase. Good luck with your purchase.

RE: firewall, black expanding foam

If your engine compartment is anything like mine, that little bit of “Fire Rated Foam” isn’t going to make any difference if you have a fire in your engine compartment or anywhere around your front cap. Unless it’s a very small fire. I guess it might not promote fire spread. I don’t know. The rest of the wood, fiberglass and plastic will do just fine spreading the fire. Sealing the gaps to keep your feet warm is more important. IMHO

RE: Super duper plug in code scanner w. WiFi?

I have one of those “cheap” plug in modules and use the Dash Command app on my iPad. I can check and reset codes as you would expect but also look at and monitor critical engine functions. I guess it all depends on what you are trying to accomplish. For a <$20 investment, I am happy with what I have. You can buy “Pro” level apps, but your gunna pay for it.

RE: Solar panel purpose on used motorhome

I have the same size solar panel you are describing. Mine came from the factory with it. It’s sole purpose is to keep the chassis battery topped off. If I remember right, the output is around 5 amps. So not really enough to charge anything but enough to overcome parasitic loss while the RV sits.

RE: Auto Park Brake Issue

Search out OldUsedBear over at His name is Roger and he is the resident expert on the auto park brake systems. Also on the other forum is a special section for the Workhorse chassis that may contain some information that you can use. Sorry I can’t help you more. Good luck with your problem.

RE: Hitch upgrade question.

I have a 2000 Dutch Star with a GCWR rating of 39,000 and GAWR of 29,000lbs. According to the manual, it supposedly has a 5000lb hitch, but I know it can have 10,000. Can one just have a higher rated hitch installed without having to beef up the frame? Your answer is in your posted numbers. It may be possible that the manual is a generic version printed for several different models. Possibly have the hitch inspected to confirm the size. Either way, use due diligence to confirm everything prior to towing over 5000 lbs.

RE: Dash air intermittent

I have been having a similar situation with my 2001 Workhorse chassis RV. I do know that with my system, if the Freon level is low, the compressor will not engage. I recently had my system checked and they did add some Freon. The system worked fine all summer long. Hope this helps.

RE: Planning to replace a cracked fender

Icon definitely has the corner of the market for fender flares, covers, etc. for RV’s. I need to replace all four flares on my class A but don’t want to spend $200 each for new ones. As RVpapa posted, That’s my plan also.

RE: atwood water heater

What you describe sounds like a 110 volt heating element. It helps the water heater recover quicker if using propane and electric or allows you to use electric only to heat your water.

RE: Onan Marquis Gold Carburetor part - linkage rod

Go to Register for a free account. You will then be able to download a complete Onan parts and service manual for your respective generator. Their prices are competitive and they have most items in stock. I think I figured out how to post this picture. Hope it helps.

RE: GAF Roof Coating at Lowes any good??

Another vote for Tropicool from Home Depot.

RE: gas line interferes with drain plug

I took my plug out completely and installed a 90 degree drain valve with a hose that is routed under the RV to drain. Hope that hose is temp/pressure rated for above 210*F/150 psi Temp/press that COULD be reached/exceeded should t-stats fail to shut down heating source Drain hole is small to begin with (1/2") Valve cuts that size down even more so effective draining of crud is hampered. A little bit of overthinking here. Why would a drain hose that’s about 12” long need to be temp/ pressure rated. Or are you thinking of the Temp. Relief Valve. I don’t full time in my RV so the “crud” buildup would be minimal to non existent and I drain my tank after every trip. It’s a modification that I wanted to do to my RV. If you don’t agree with it, then fine, move on to the next post but quit trying to impress everyone with what you think you might know.
