RE: Need help with 85 pace arrow house batteries

One of your cables will come from your converter. (that goes to positive terminal on your battery - maybe through a fuse) One of your cables will connect to your chassis and act as ground. (that goes to the battery negative terminal). The two batteries will connect together - positive to positive and negative to negative - so you should have two shorter cables that serve that purpose. That should take care of 4 of the cables. You may have other smaller cables that power things like the electric steps or carbon monoxide alarm - every rig is different. A multimeter can perform continuity test which will help identify.

RE: Parts for Kwikee Steps

I purchase my parts on Amazon or Ebay - but if your new and aren't sure of the parts you might consider visiting camping World or other RV parts dealer and discuss the issue ... might cost you a little more but you will get the assurance of find the right part.

RE: Hulu price increases TWICE this year!

I carry a TV which I connect to phone/laptop/tablet which have a library of videos which I can watch. Cost almost zip. May not work for you but it's an alternative.

RE: Space Heater

While watts may create the same amt of heat the big difference between heaters is distribution, sound, and quality of the thermostat. The quietest heater is likely the oil filled radiator type - love them but they often require a fan to distribute the heat and they are kinda bulky. Most of the inexpensive heaters you find at Walmart etc have fans that are either loud and/or so pathetic that the heat builds up near the heater which triggers the thermostat to shut off while the rig is still freezing cold. I have used a boatload of heaters over the years. I currently use a Vornado which has sufficient air power to distribute heat quickly to the rest of the rig. It's not as quiet as advertised but it's OK. My runner up is to buy two cheapo Walmart specials and set them to "LOW" and place one in the front/back. If you these inexpensive heaters on low the heat will likely not build up enough near the heater to trigger the thermostat to shut off prematurely.

RE: beaded cab driver seat??

These days I use whatever foam/gel cushion that is currently on sale - don't look as nice as the beads but your arse will thank you.

RE: Where is the valve to drain freshwater tank

Your rigs new enough that you should be able to pull into any dealer who sells coachman and find someone who will know.

RE: A Question Are you limited to life on pavement

Different strokes for different folks. 40 years ago when I lived down in SoCal it was hard to find privacy, wildlife, camping etc - even playing a round of golf required you to make reservations weeks in advance. Everyone adapts or moves. I chose to move.

RE: Signing a power of attorney for bank when selling your RV

The bank/lender is unlikely to provide the funds without having title and a POA serves the same purpose. If the lender is credible/established and you independently confirmed the transaction with them I would go through with the deal. If it were me I would request them to wire the funds to my bank (won't happen until after they get POA).

RE: Toilet Leaking

I may just buy a new one since I don't know what is wrong and can't look at it before going out there. Seems I can get the same model online for around $150 shipped. If I pull it off replacing it should be easy. Any tips for replacing it? Do I need to purchase any other parts? It says it comes with needed harware/seals to connect to existing water lines and floor flange. If it says it comes with necessary hardware you should be good to go. Lots of Youtube videos on how to change rv toilets.

RE: 1999 Fleetwood discovery not cranking.

Do the simple stuff first - make sure the battery is good (any auto parts place will test for free) and clean all the contacts and grounds.

RE: Toilet Leaking

Every toilet issue I have had required me to remove the toilet - some were easy and some are PIA. Don't know what kind of toilet or age of your rig - but the new toilets are nicer/taller than old ones and they are inexpensive enough to consider buying new toilet rather than fixing old ones. Just a thought.

RE: Hearing problem need wireless mic and ear piece

When I added Air Tabs the noise level in the cab dropped dramatically making speech at normal volume possible. Interesting. The airtabs I have scene are located on the rear of the rig and owner comments are generally focused on handling and mileage. Any thoughts on why sound levels in cab are lower?

RE: Switching to Class C

Some of the longer Class C's are already maxed out on weight so towing maybe an issue. It's likely the shorter RV will have more towing capacity and if you drop the trailer you maybe able to park in city easier. Class C will feel small compared to 5th wheel.

RE: Selling my RV advice

Selling on Craigslist has it's challenges - whether you sell RV's or anything else you have to have the ability to filter the buyers and feel free to pass rather than waste your time showing them the rig. Lots of good quality pictures and detailed info will help sell anything on Craigslist.

RE: Cummins 5 year old synthetic oil with 1000 miles - change ?

Yeah - changing every year regardless of miles is the std. But let's get real - life ain't perfect and priorities change. His rig isn't going to suffer catastrophic damage by deferring an oil change.

RE: Are RV shows worth it?

My wife won't allow me to attend an RV show - probably for good reason.

RE: Dont discuss GS

If the moderators are trying to remove complaints about GS they are doing a lousy job. My perspective is that this website allows complaints about GS and others and tries to keep the conversation civil.

RE: I take back all the good stuff I've said about Les Schwabs!

Manager got red faced pizzed with me when I would not accept the repair for free. I bet LS was glad that you no longer do business with them. Fixing stuff for free is generally considered a "good thing". Guess you don’t understand my point. Simply put I don’t take advantage of people. Oh I got your point with your first anti LS post - the other 13 were just exclamation points. Yeah we get it - you don't like LS. I have been doing business with LS for around 20 years - they don't do everything perfect but every time I have had a complaint I have had a reasonable conversation with the manager and he has made a reasonable accommodation which has always resulted in fixing the problem and often a reduction in price acknowledging their mistake. Can't say the same about any of their competitors.

RE: Blow out water lines question

Why not spend a bit on a couple gallons of RV antifreeze and be 100% sure your are ok or blow out the line and HOPE you got all the water out? Barney Many don't like the residual taste of antifreeze - and in the PNW we get the occasional warm weather during winter and it's nice to be able to add water and go camping w/o all the flushing.
