RE: First front tire blow out....

Come on folks. Get real. The guy lightly tapped the brake pedal just enough to make the brake lights come on and shut down the cruise. All while keeping his cool and maintaining a good grip on the wheel. Why are so many acting like he did a two footed stand on the brakes. Good grief. Real life and YouTube videos ain't the same thing. :h

RE: California Bill 1346

just another reason to stall the H_ll out of California. This bill will band al small off road engines including portable generators for recreational vehicles. Meaning Motor homes and Fifth wheels. Target date July 2022. Believe the recent baned on lawn mowers and yard tools has something with this bill that was just announced. Keep an eye on this bill. Although the bill is problematic, it's not a simplistic as you indicate. It bans the SALE of certain small engines effective 2024 among other things. A simple Google search will yield the detail.

RE: MAJOR short on a 2006 newmar essex

I'd be looking for a bad ground connection somewhere with all those odd symptoms.

RE: Gasser guys and gals ...why not a diesel ?

My Magnum 3000 caught on fire. It is due to poor design on their part. So I can't recommend them. They did replace it under warranty. I've heard of several people having that problem.

When I use the notify moderator button, enter my message and press the submit button, I get an error message and it appears the report is not transmitted. Any idea as to what might be causing this?

RE: Does your slide interfere with any operation.....

A few kitchen and bedroom drawers are inaccessible. Other than that, no problems.

RE: 2002 silverado 1500

When I read threads like this it makes me wonder how dad hauled 5 kids, mom, 3 packed coolers and a ton of other gear, out to Yellowstone then the Grand Canyon @ 1974. He was pulling a 25' Holiday Rambler TT with a 1963 Falcon 6 cylinder wagon. I think those things had about 75 HP lol. Probably by working on it twice a day and once at night. While you and your siblings were out playing around in the campground or sound asleep. :)

RE: Another issue

Before you turn on the water heater open the access door and lift the lever on the pressure relief valve and make sure water comes out and keeps coming out if the pump is on or you are hooked up. If no water your winter bypass valves are in the wrong position. And if that's the case and you flipped those switches on there's a good chance you'll need a new water heater element. You can get them at Lowes or HD.

RE: Add Awning To Slide?

As it would be odd to add a traditional awning that is deployed independently over the top of a slide, I think most presumed that he meant a slide topper, which is essentially an awning that deploys automatically when the slide is opened. Not sure where you travel but I see traditional awnings deployed independently over the top of a slide all the time. Also see awnings installed on slides pretty regularly too. On TT', 5th wheels and motorhomes of all types. It's not unusual.

RE: over filling

Doesn't matter what type of fresh water tank fill system that you have for your trailer, water can still leak past the pump internal check valve, filling the tank. Not quite true. With our system, when all the valves are set for city water the pump is out of the system. Rob And the check valve is what keeps the pump out of the system. If it fails, and they often do, the pump is back in the system.

RE: Gasser guys and gals ...why not a diesel ?

Not many gassers go over 200k without serious problems. Not many motorhomes of any kind go over 200k miles at all. I think the average motorhome goes like 4K mile a year. A few exceptions of course but very few motorhomes die because of mileage.

RE: Gasser guys and gals ...why not a diesel ?

I've had both and prefer gas. The DP rides and drives better but the gas rides and drives just fine. A DP can tow a heavier toad but my gasser tows my toad just fine. A DP can climb a hill faster but I'm in no hurry and haven't found the hill yet that my gasser can't climb. I've been stranded by DP's on the side of the road on more than one occasion but in 21 years, I've never been stranded by a gasser. We normally drive less than 200 miles per day so driver fatigue is not really an issue. I don't think I'd ever have another DP because I just don't have a gasser problem that needs a DP to solve.

RE: Class C Onan Generator Exhaust Stack Issue

Can you read the trouble code?

RE: 50A Power Cord Reel

I decided against installing it. Figure 8 coiling the 50A cord in the electrical bay takes me about 20 seconds so there is really no advantage to a power reel. Plus the power reel adds a ton of new failure points. Additional connections, brushes, power motor and wiring. Just nothing to be gained there. Would it be a neat feature, sure but I don't really have a problem it would fix. I may install it just before selling/trading. It would probably make a good selling point.

RE: Winterizing

New anti-freeze is pretty cheap and easy compared to a bunch of busted plumbing.

RE: Finally !!!

Happy for you. Don't forget to make those reservations. Things are different than they were 8 years ago. :)

RE: 2015 Ford Focus flat tow damage

I have done some research on base plates and nobody makes a base plate that extends past where my failed at . If you look at the photo on page 4 . This is where the base plate should extend to . I agree, it looks like none of the baseplate manufacturers have done a good design job for the Focus. A lot of them make sub par baseplates for the Wrangler too. The fix for this design flaw is almost always a short little cable to attach to another location in case the primary attachment point comes apart. Even that kind of indicates the baseplate manufacturer knows there's a problem. Unfortunately, it's up to the consumer to figure it out. Shouldn't be that way but it is. I suppose the Focus used by the baseplate manufacturer for the initial design could have been manufactured differently than subsequent years. The baseplate guys should be sure of that before telling a customer "yeah, it'll work." I put it in the same category as the RV sales person who says "sure your F-150 can pull a 40' bumper pull toy hauler with no WDH". But it happens.

RE: UPGRADE to a larger LP tank ?

LP powered generators have caught a lot of diesel RV owners off guard. Manufacturers still opt for the cheaper installation unless the customer specifies a diesel generator. Especially in the smaller RV sizes.

RE: Do you always need an RV Park ? .....

Short answer to your question is simply "yes". The reason is "for more gracious living." If I'm boondocking it's either because I'm broke down or everything is full and I didn't make a reservation. MUST BE NICE Nashville guy ... not to care about mpg or the price of fuel AND NOW it appears you need an RV Park every night ! I have RVed since the early 80s and I maybe have gone to parks MAYBE 20 times ! I’ve even black topped it in ... Key West ! I’ll bet you went to Bluewater Park.... for 300$ a nite ! More power to ya ! Yep, it's very nice and I have been to Bluewater Key and Mountain Falls and Everglades Isle and Hilton Head Island Motorcoach Resort and many others. Momma always told me hard work would pay off. Sorry you don't like my style but I don't really understand the anger. The OP asked a question and I gave my answer. Just not the same as your answer. What's the problem?

RE: Any 80mph PLUS - class Aers still on here ?

Ford V-10's are limited to 75MPH unless coasting down hill. Don't know when that started. Fast RV drivers are like bold pilots. Yep, that is the usual BS spouted by non-pilots, and non-history buffs. As a 75 year old pilot myself I might mention just a few BOLD pilots like Chuck Yeager who died at 97, Bob Hoover died at 94, Jimmy Doolittle died at 96, and John Glenn made it to 95. There are plenty of old bold pilots and I hope many RV drivers make it just as long as these pilots and, like most pilots, do not exceed their limitations as defined by their own abilities. :R A bit sensitive aren't we? There are exceptions to every general truism. Most people realize that.
