RE: Real-life experience blocks to aid 6-point leveling system

I found that I would lift my tires off the ground on many occasions when on uneven ground without using the leveling blocks. I don't want my tires off the ground EVER! You might find that necessary to do your breaks or a flat tire.

RE: Real-life experience blocks to aid 6-point leveling system

Yes. I have 6x6 blocks. Sometimes the ground is so far off the levers can't do their job. The less travel you have, the shorter the shaft the more stable you will be. If for no other reason, I use the blocks to help keep the landing pads clean and out of the dirt.

RE: smoking diesel exhaust

The guy is asking a legitimate question and wants to solve a problem. No need to penalize him. I am sure many of you have asked questions before that are common sense to others, but not you. Give they fellow RVer a break.

RE: smoking diesel exhaust

Looked up black smoke from diesel on internet and results said over-fueling. Fuel injector wear. Check it out on the net for your model.

RE: Insurance question

From complaints often posted on here, I would go with any company OTHER than Good Sam. NO GOOD SAM. I have NC Farm Bureau and in the past Progressive, but did not like them. Keep raising policy amount.

RE: Stairs not working

I am not familiar with auto-stairs, but you seemed to be replacing a lot of parts. Are there and micro switches on the steps that might be sticking and shutting the stair off prematurely? Any binds in the guides or supports? Do you have a fuse or a circuit breaker? If a breaker, perhaps it is drawing too much current, overheating and shutting down. Like a thermal fuse. All else fails, get steps or manual stairs.

RE: Lowering rear of truck

Not sure if it would be cost effective, but when I bought my 5er they flipped the axles.

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

1. Pumps should have an overheat shut off. My question is if it was primed where was the water going. They are supposed to shut off automatically wen demand ceases. If they keep running with no demand you might have a leak somewhere. 2. I have a Big Foot system and one of my jacks is also slower than the other. I have had no issues.

RE: Oil Change - synthetic oil

I have a Ford Diesel, but that should not make a difference. I change my oil every 7000 miles and the filter. Don't know if your vehicle would take the same oil or not, but I use Shell Rotilla 15-40 (T-5).

RE: Removing pine pitch

WD-40 let it sit a bit and wipe or scrape off. Works great on windows and painted metal surfaces of your vehicle.

RE: Grey Tank leaks

Glad you found your leak. My grey leaks from somewhere above the visual line. To get to it I would have to remove the bottom fabric that covers the bottom of the 5er. The tank is not exposed. So I just keep the grey valve open so it doesn't leak.

RE: EMS/Surge Protection or.... TPMS???

EMS with out a question. You can physically check tires daily and every 3 hours driving (kick test) when traveling, but you can not see electricity and know when it will cause problems. I have a built in Progressive 50 A EMS/Surge that I installed in my 5er.

RE: Taking the dogs with

I would never put my pets anywhere I wouldn't put the kids. Yes. But it appears you need a bigger truck or semi to accommodate your growing family. :W

RE: Massachusetts in October

We are up here for 6 months at my daughters from NC. As mentioned above, CG do close for the winter and anytime after Halloween you can expect that 4 letter word "SNOW".

RE: Buying land for camping...

We have a 1 Acre zoned Agriculture lot in NC that we installed a pad, shed with washer drier and all RV hook ups. The only problem is we must stay 6mo on and 6 mo off.Actually, no longer than 6 months on lot. It is fenced in for privacy. Our neighbor was good enough to check the RV and keep the dehumidifier filter clean. We hired someone to cut the lawn. I can see that 6 months or whatever establishing residency but what other reason is there? I mean, can you "camp" 7 months and of course you are then a resident and then must change car tags, etc. bumpy It has to do with RV rules in the area and area zoning laws. When we got the build permit this was one of the stipulations. However, all our neighbors did not care about it.

RE: Can a brake controller get weaker over time?

Yes to above. Perhaps breaks just need to be adjusted from wear.

RE: Carriage Cameo

We have a factory install on my 2012 Cameo. Unfortunately, I can't send a pic until we go back to NC in September. If you don't get anything by then and still want a picture, send me a private message on this site.

RE: Low Voltage on One 50A Leg

Are you reading this at the post or do you have a built in voltage EMS inside your coach? As noted above you need the raw voltage without load. A few volts difference will not matter.
