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.

RE: Oregon 101 Fort Stevens to Gold Beach

With traffic it's a long drive. Since the Oregon Coast is beautiful with plenty of attractions I would take advantage and stop at a few of those small towns and have fun. That would likely require you to spend another night and camp at a mid way spot.

RE: Looked at an older RV

My 02 If this is your first RV - find one that has no signs of water damage. Water damage is the nemesis of RV's and unless your experienced with assessment and repairs stay away.

RE: Either smell in coach

I have no clue what ether smells like - typical smell issues in RV (other than holding tanks) tend to be associated with batteries, coolant leakage from fridge, hot water tanks (rotten eggs) and outgassing of carpets/furniture/insulation on new RVs. If smell is related to service I would call the service provider and ask for advice.

RE: TireMan valve stems

Use the forum search feature - believe I saw a thread a while back which indicated that the guy who founded/ran TireMan died. If so - might explain why nobody is returning inquiries.

Zep is just an inexpensive version of Poly Glow which has been used in the boating industry for years. I have used this product for many years and it made my 92 rig look like new. Takes a considerable amt of prep on the front end but it last a long time and touch ups aren't hard. I have not experienced yellowing or any of the other negative comments referenced above.

RE: Class C

In 25+ years the only leak I had in my Class C was from a side window which prompted me to remove and reseal all the side windows (all RV's should have there windows resealed eventually).

RE: Water pump not working

If prior owner winterized the rig chances are the valve between the water pump and the FW tank is still closed ... worth a look.

RE: 2000 class C E350 V10 Ford

My E350 fuel filter is located on driver side frame. As I recall you need an inexpensive special tool to remove the filter.

RE: Class C and water

Some class C's have weight issues when towing - if your rig is one of them then I would carry less water. Just remember to choose camping sites where water is available.

RE: City of Grants Pass OR

We are talking about Grant Pass Oregon. The ordinance and overnight parking prohibition is posted in the Walmart parking lot. They are attempting to regulate parking on private property not just on city streets. I can understand resort communities that need to restrict parking. So the community does not want cars or RVs clogging up the streets day and night. Yes they can prohibit overnight parking but only on public streets. The prohibition has to be evenly applied; i.e., residents would not be allowed to park on the streets either. BTW, Grants Pass is hardly a vacation mecca and certainly not a resort community. I passed through a couple of months ago and it was more congested and uglier than ever. You might think it is a good idea to outlaw sleeping in a car or RV even if it is legally parked. Sleeping in your car or vehicle if legally parked is legal and know it all local city governments do not have the right to prohibit this activity! We still have some freedoms in the country. BTW why would you want to prohibit sleeping in a car? Because you do not like the lowlifes? Did it occur to you that some people are struggling to get by. I have met quite a few people sleeping in their cars. Many were trying to work jobs and to get out of poverty. Maybe instead of trying to dump on the unfortunate, the city of Grants Pass might consider offering some assistance. Plenty of people deserve and could use some help. No one is dumping on the unfortunate, that’s why we have shelters to help the homeless get back on their feet. Ain't no simple solution. I have no problem with someone sleeping in their car/RV overnight ... have a big problem if that someone wants to sleep in his car everynight in my front yard. Portland Or requires 7 day notice to move homeless. We have a large homeless RV population and for the most part they don't create a problem because they move every few days. They also don't put out slides or leveling devices like the OP did.

RE: Older Onan generator

The electric output of your Onan Generator is associated with your RPM of the engine .. your Generator appears to be running at a bit higher RPM than normal - but not much. B4 messing with anything I would run the generator for a few hours under load - if you still have a problem a simple MINOR adjustment should put things right. Download the operators manual - s/b free on the internet.

RE: Sears. Craftsman, Die Hard, Adios

Most of us stopped shopping at Sears long ago which is why they are in the sad state they are. I prefer to remember the old Sears which has quality products and good customer service ... but I won't miss the Sears that has neither.
ksg5000 12/28/18 01:38pm Tech Issues

If the rig is parked/running can you open the door and apply soapy water to the door seal to spot a leak - kinda like finding a leak in an air mattress? Just a thought.

RE: City of Grants Pass OR

That picture would draw attention in most cities on the West Coast - leveling rigs is a pretty good sign of camping. I would lose the leveling blocks etc.

RE: Internal fuse for the WFCO 55 Amp Converter?

When you checking the reverse polarity fuse take the time to measure the voltage right at the converter. If the converter is putting out power then check for auto reset circuit breaker near the battery - when they go south it takes the battery offline.

RE: 400 mile Electric Truck that Tesla should Watch out for

Going to be plenty of new electric startups - the ones with real new technology will likely be acquired or go public - the ones without new technology will likely be rolled over. I like this vehicle but at close to $70K it's not going to find a market in the USA.

RE: RV Financing & Full-Timers Question

" I was just concerned that on the application they may ask what our monthly mortgage or rent payment which we do not have." One of the few benefits of being OLD is that eventually we do pay off our home loans - not having a mtg payment/rent is not necessarily something that would raise a red flag. There going to do a credit check on you which is what they rely on.
