RE: Live with no dash ac?

Get the dash air working and hang a temporary curtain behind the driver/passenger area while driving. It will keep you cool. Yep, this method keeps the cab plenty cool.

RE: 1994 Beaver Patriot VIN

We have a VIN plate on the drivers side of the dash very close to the base of the windshield. Have you looked there?

RE: Question about my on-demand water pump and ?

I've accidently left our water pump running dry a couple of days at a time on several occasions and I've never had to replace a pump.

RE: RV & Auto Parts Return Experience

If is was damaged in shipping, contact the carrier and file a damage claim. The carrier will pick it up and ship it back at no charge to you. You will need to notify RV and Auto Parts that it was damaged in shipping and being returned by the carrier and that you want it exchanged for a new and undamaged product. The carrier will reimburse the shipper for the damaged product.

RE: To brighten our day

I wouldn't have said a word to him. He should have been smart enough to figure out that you probably have a large fuel tank just by looking at the size of your rig. Obviously he wasn't.

RE: 32 Foot Class A vs 32 Foot Class C

I'll mention a few of my reasons for preferring a Class A. Sitting up high and being able to look over the top of most of the vehicles in front of me feels a little safer being able to see brake lights come on several cars ahead of me and watching for openings in traffic. An 8 1/2 foot wide windshield is great for viewing the scenery as we travel also. We've only owned Class A's, but I think they may have larger storage bays and possibly larger fresh and holding tanks in the same length of vehicles. Just my thoughts but I'm sure Class C owners can probably list the benefits of a C that I wouldn't be aware of.

RE: Camping with no reservations

We haven't been to the east side of the country, but here in central WA, northern Idaho and western Montana we seek out the first come/first serve campgrounds and haven't had any problems getting a sight mid week. We stay through the weekend and then move to a new area on Monday or Tuesday. Most of those campgrounds are full on the weekends, but mid week arrival works fine in our areas.

RE: Norcold 1210 freezer cold refrigerator warm

Doug knows a lot more than me, but I would expect the coils to be hot if the fans aren't working. OP, I can hear our refer fans when they cycle on.

RE: Campsite Squatters

A few of the campgrounds we frequent have a rule that the site must be physically occupied each night. A camp host verifies this each night or early morning. A tow vehicle, or in the case of a tent, a car must be at the site. I suppose a trailer and tow vehicle could occupy the site and not have anyone actually there. The camp host wouldn't be able to determine that, although it would look pretty odd that there is no activity at the site all day or evening. Campgrounds yes, but FS land as in dispersed or BLM land, same, have different rules. Thank-you. I missed the part about FS land. I was referring to a FS campground.

RE: cracked potable water tank

We've had eight motorhomes and we always travel with at least half a tank. Never had a leak and I'm guessing the tank material is all pretty similar between manufacturers.

RE: Quartzsite 2021-Big Tent- Who's going and taking the CHANCE?

I'm planning on going again this year but I probably won't be going into the big tent. There are plenty of products and rv vendors in the open air outside canopies. From what I saw last year, I can easily stay 6' apart from others while viewing the products. It will probably be easier than shopping in Home Depot, Wal-Mart or the grocery store.

RE: Back to the '70s!!!!

Those prices wouldn't deter us from going to Oregon State Parks as WA Parks are already that much or more.

RE: How Often Do you Get Skunked on FCFS Camp Spots?

We have never gotten skunked, but we have pulled into FS campgrounds and gotten the last or 2nd to the last site available. We usually arrive just before check-out on Sunday through Thursday and find available sites. I wouldn't try that on a week-end.

RE: Who's hitting the road this summer?

We have taken about 4 separate trips this summer into north east WA and also Idaho and Montana. We usually boondock or stay in forest service campgrounds so we are not really close by anyone else unless we want to chat with someone in a nearby campsite. We never use public restrooms as that is one of the main reasons we have a motorhome. We are heading into northern WA in a couple of days, so need to pack the motorhome tomorrow:)

RE: Air bags

Last year we had a rear air bag with a slow leak in it. I took it to a Cummins repair facility and they replaced the leaking bag. I asked about replacing the other rear bag since they were both the original. They stated that they usually don't replace them until they start to leak. I though that was odd, but it's been over a year now and the older bag still has no leaks.

RE: Tow Truck Policy

I would drop any roadside service that wanted Walmart to do my repairs. You got that right!!!

RE: Tow Truck Policy

Because of profit margin. Regardless of how many years you have had a policy, how much money you have spent on it over the years or that you rarely if ever have had to use it, no business will spend more than they have to. Many times it's less than they should. It's not right but every one of these road side assistance programs, insurance companies etc. are in business to make money and as much of it as they can, 100% of the time. Do you know of a roadside assistance program for RV that would include all household vehicles that would include a towing radius as opposed to the nearest? I'm going to search and change if I find one. We have Coach-Net Platinum. When our motorhome broke down they sent a tow truck to take us to the nearest Freightliner facility. The problem was that this facility couldn't even look at it for 2 weeks. I told the tow driver that I had to head south in about a week. He talked to Coach-Net and they instructed him to tow us an extra 140 Miles to a Freightliner repair shop that could look at it the next day...at no charge to me. I seriously doubt Good Sam would do that.

RE: 100 days till snowbirding........ maybe not

We will be heading south as usual in late October. WA virus isn't much different than AZ and we don't need to be in close contact with anybody when we are traveling unless we choose to. We can go a long time with the 100 gallon fresh water and equivalent holding tanks. We aren't close to anyone when fueling either. We would rather be distancing from others in warm weather than in cold weather.
