RE: Proper Class C Storage

I store my rig with full gas tank - adding fuel stabilizer and running the generator b4 storing is good idea. I keep my rig plugged in during storage - my converter is "smart" so it keeps the coach batteries charged without damaging - I also added an inexpensive Trik L Start which insures my chassis battery is kept charged. I don't disconnect my batteries. I turn my fridge off (why waste electricity) but do keep the doors slightly open to avoid mold issue. Air conditioner isn't required in my area but I do use a small dehumidifier. My rig sits level on gravel - no leveling jacks.

RE: RV Kwik Step Not coming IN

The swing arm of the motor which connects to the step is held in place with a round metal bar which has a cotter pin on the end .. remove the cotter pin and bar and the step can be moved manually. Sometimes rapping the motor will resolve problem with dead spot on the motor.

RE: Not charging from alternator

If your solenoid isn't making any sound when you turn the ignition key it maybe defective - they are easy to replace and don't cost much. Sometimes rapping it with a hammer will unstick it. SB some threads on how to test the solenoid.

RE: A/C compressor will not shut off

Sounds like a bad thermostat - might consider replacing - should be able to find a suitable replacement at any Big Box store. Lots of threads discussing how to replace thermostat.

RE: battery

Depends on your setup. In my rig I have a rocker switch which connects to a relay. Perhaps your relay isn't working. Also - if you have a relay like the one in the link make sure the fuses are OK.

RE: Mozilla Thunderbird & Win 10

I have windows 10 with Thunderbird and the new update did not have adverse effect on me. Since your original emails should still reside on the original servers you might consider just reinstalling Thunderbird - might be a simple fix.

RE: Looking for good campground in Portland OR

Might consider Pheasant Ridge which is south of Portland ... s/b able to jump on 205 and take that to airport.

RE: Tire Dealer trying to sell me older tires, what do I do?

I asked the dealer for new tires and it took a couple of weeks but they were a few weeks old. I would not accept tires that were 1 year old.

RE: Very slow propane leak: how to find it?

When I have a leak I take the rig to the commercial propane dealer that I normally use to fill the tank. They find/fix the leak very quickly and never charge me.

RE: Atwood hot water heater

Just a guess - but if your rig is older then maybe the interior of the water heater has accumulated calcium/crud which might interfere with it's heating ability. You can clean this crud out by emptying the water heater and filling with vinegar solution and allowing it to soak for a day or so. Just a thought.

RE: Roof Rack-Class C, Anyone ?

My rig came with roof rack but there is no way I would put a kayak up there - maybe on the rear bumper but not on the roof. RV roofs are one of the weak points on rigs and many avoid trying to place any weight/strain on them. Just my 02.

RE: New Coachman, Water Pump Issues - Updated/Fixed

Brand new? It may have plastic shavings or other debris in the filter. x2. Check the filter screen.

RE: genset will not start from remote switches

If it's like my Onan you might check/clean the connections to the board on the generator.

RE: California and Oregon coast in winter

I like the coast during winter - but bring rain gear, extra shoes, and clean up towels. You won't need reservations.

RE: southwire surge guard or Progressive industries

I would buy neither and get a Hughes autoformer instead. +3 Cost about $150 more but newer ones are more versatile and provide higher joules protection than PI surge guards.

RE: Atwood stove/oven leaking??

Over the years whenever I smell propane I just take the rig down to a commercial propane dealer - ask them to fill the tank and to check the rig for leaks. They have never charged me to inspection/fixing leaks. Something to consider.

RE: Replacing Plastic Water Tank Fittings - How is it done?

Depends on where the leak is. In order to determine exactly where the leak was I removed the tank -- and discovered that the tank was fine but the old fitting had cracked. My fitting just screwed out and I found a replacement at the hardware store.

RE: Battery/inverter

Start with the basics. Have all your batteries tested (it's free) - inspect tighten battery terminals - check grounds.

RE: eBay Solar Panels

Sold on Amazon for a little more - they seem to get good reviews.

RE: Class C Privacy Curtain??

I just use an outside windshield cover - they wrap around entire front windshield (driver/passenger included) and provide total privacy. Available at most RV parts outlet stores.
