RE: 2023 camping season

We will keep on camping as much as usual. This winter in Arizona, it doesn't look like anyone stayed home because of fuel prices either.

RE: Roadside Assistance

After two fails many years ago with GS, I switched to Coach-Net. Only used them once to tow the Allegro and the service was exceptional. I bet Coach-Net pays the towing company more than GS.

RE: Winter in Arizona...

This seems to be a Very popular year to visit Quartzite with no regard for high gas prices. It's the most RV's we have seen on BLM land and traffic in town is more than we have seen in several years of coming here for the big rv show. Hope you get the rv fixed soon.

RE: RV Flex Armor

Our neighbor has a 40' Alpha that he was constantly having water leak problems with. He finally bit the bullet and had the Flex Armor applied. He says that it's the best thing he ever did and has had absolutely no leaks anywhere. He had it done about 3 years ago for $6000. We can see the roof of his rig from our house and I can honestly say it looks as good as it did 3 years ago.

The parks in southern Arizona are full of snowbirds. The park we are in doesn't have even one rig with an AZ plate.

RE: Then what?

By the way, who is still using a 110 VAC drill?Really. All my yard tools are battery.. leaf blower, lawn mower (110v battery!), hedge trimmer. I would never buy another gas powered tool. I'm thinking he meant a corded drill that plugs into a wall socket.

RE: Roof tear along edge ...

I'll add my vote for using Eternabond as you described. I've been using it for over 20 years on 5 different motorhomes around roof vents, a/c flashing, roof seams and front and rear caps. Never a leak on any of them.

RE: Possible delamination

jjj, I'll let my friend know about your experience also in case he has an issue that isn't normal for that design.

RE: Possible delamination

Thank you for the replies. I've never had a bubble effect or waves on my numerous rv's over the years, but I will let my friend know that this is fairly normal on some brands of rv's.

Possible delamination

A friend purchased a 24' travel trailer 11 months ago. Shortly after the purchase he noticed some air pockets(soft spots) on the rear cap. He took it to a rv repair facility and they pulled off the rear cap, didn't see any damage and reglued the cap back on to the tune of $2000. Now he is seeing some soft spots at the bottom of the rear cap again and took it back to the original repair facility. The repair shop now says that the air pockets are normal as it is a "floating" wall/cap. I've never experienced any soft spots or floating wall on any of my rv's. My question this a true statement from the rv shop?

RE: Preparing to Leave in Hot Weather

We also pre cool everything and occasionally put a fan inside the refer during really hot weather. What works very well for us was buying a small 4 or 5 inch desk top fan (110v) and putting it in the outside refer access area. It blows the hot air up over the coils and out the top. Since we have an inverter, the fan can stay plugged in and runs all the time. Of course when we are plugged in at a park, the fan would run continuously anyway.

RE: Leveling Blocks

I use the 3 tier one piece levelers(like the ones pictured above) on the small rv in my signature. They are light weight and easy to handle, no worry of slivers, and the grab handle makes it easy to pick up from underneath.

RE: My problem now - First DP!

Our 40' Bus looks the same as yours. The ice-maker quit working on ours too. Since we drink bottled water and don't trust our fresh water tank or rv park water to always be bacteria free, we decided to take out the ice-maker. It gives us more room in the freezer. We just buy a bag of ice every couple of weeks and use the original ice bin to keep it in. Just a thought.

If you confronted him, he more than likely would have said it was your fault for being in his way:(

RE: Curiosity of RV Park parking?

I've seen trucks hanging outside the end of their pad and partially blocking the roadway. Most of the time when I'm checking in, I look to see the path to my site. If it looks like I can't squeeze through because of a vehicle blocking the road, I ask the mgr to notify the owner that I will need to come through there. The mgr and the offending vehicle owner have always complied. Both mgr and the customer have been nice and courteous about my request.

RE: Diesel fuel prices … how is that affecting your RV travel ?

To answer the OP's question...Usually, we take the Allegro on longer trips and the Isata on shorter trips. Because of the higher price of diesel over gas, we will take the Isata on all trips this summer. The price of gas is about a dollar a gallon cheaper than diesel and the Isata gets 15mpg compared to the Tiffin at 9mpg, so we will be taking the small gasser. We definitely won't be staying home all summer!

RE: Fuse location on engine a/c compressor

Have you checked the low pressure switch itself to see if you are getting power to it? If you haven't it may just be a bad switch. Doug also suggested that will be my next step. Thanks.

RE: Fuse location on engine a/c compressor

Thanks guys for the knowledgeable replies on diagnosing an a/c system. Interestingly, they did not charge me for any freon! I will call them on Tuesday and find out why "no charge" if they had actually added freon. This was a diesel repair facility and likely didn't have an experienced a/c tech. I only did a visual inspection on the inline fuses{nothing melted} and will need to check continuity now. Other than that, I will have to find a shop that specializes in a/c only.

RE: Fuse location on engine a/c compressor

Rick jay and Doug, thanks for the feedback about no compressor running. This is a quote from the invoice. "Checked A/C. Recovered system. Was about a pound low. Charged to 4.2 lbs. Test ran. Clutch is not engaging". I have no idea if they bypassed the low pressure switch. Tiffins suggestion for fuse location was no help. I'm going to have to check every fuse that I can locate.

RE: Fuse location on engine a/c compressor

Apples to oranges, but the fuse for our '14 American Revolution is in an inline holder, buried under the dash, near the evaporator assembly. Not an easy find, even after being told where to look.... There are several inline fuses under the dash. Rather than pay $165 an hour, I picked up the rv and told them I will continue to look for the a/c fuse. Thanks for the suggestion. I'll probably start checking all of them after the holiday.
