RE: Water system going crazy help!!

city water intake thing (connection). There is a check valve on the backside of the connector. You don't say what year your rig is but my 2020 Vista had a plastic connector and leaked when I got it in 2021. Replaced it with brass fitting and been fine since.

RE: Portable surge protector

I had a portable unit for a while until it was submerged during a tropical storm on the outer banks, NC. Didn't realize the water on our site had gotten that deep. Water got in the unit where the female cord entered the unit. I replaced it with a hardwired unit. First thing I did with our new coach was put in a 50 amp hardwired unit.

RE: Purchasing a RV in another state

Took plates from old MH and put them on new MH. Drove from Wisc to Mo. Once home officially transferred plates at same time applied for title on the new MH. Of course transferred insurance before starting trip home and had registration for the old MH with me if needed.

RE: Pre-planning for first long duration trip upon retirement

Nobody has mentioned it but should look into a credit card that doesn't charge extra fees for use in Canada. We got Bank Of America's Travel Card for our trip.

RE: Sediment in Freshwater System - Need Help!

Should also clean the strainer on the water pump. It can trap grit contained in the water from the fresh water tank.

RE: Re-sealing Winnebago radius roof in "J" channel

Earlier this year I redid all the J channel on both sides as well as the front cap to the roof on my 2003 Itasca Sunova. Until then I had only been doing the sections that had lost the bond between the roof and the channel. I used Manus Bond 75AM available on Amazon. As memory serves I found Manus recommended here on the forum or it could have been forums. Of course then I finally found a new 2020 Vista to buy.

RE: Gen leaking fuel

Does your generator have a single fuel filter or 2 filters? Our 2001 Adventurer originally came with 1 fuel filter at the pump, and a second screwed into the carb. Onan later eliminated the one at the carb because after it was replaced a few times the threads would often start to leak. They came out with a fitting that would replace the filter and remain in place permanently. Later models came only with a single filter at the pump. Our Onan started leaking at the filter in Colter Bay in Grand Teton NP. Got the filter replaced at a RV rental place in Jackson. Later found out about the fix that eliminates the 2nd filter when I had the gen serviced.

Route D between US54 and MO64

Can anyone comment on driving route D between US54 and MO64 going to Pomme de Terre state park in Missouri? Driving 33ft MH towing.

RE: Do you run house AC while on the road

Our first class C on a 1985 chevy chassis had an aftermarket ac and it was worthless. Our next class C on a 1998 chevy chassis had a factory air and it could freeze you out. Our current class A we have to run the generator and roof ac to keep comfortable in hot weather.

RE: Dead batteries

If your Sunova is like my 2003, you won't be able to start the generator until you have a charge on the house batteries. I should also ask if you checked the house batteries disconnect switch. It should be on the left of the entry door. If the batteries are disconnected it will seem like they are dead.

RE: How to sanitize new RV water system

I'm with Bumpy, tried the hose method and it was cumbersome to get the bleach in the hose and keep it there while connecting it to the RV. The filter method is so much easier.

RE: 1993 Itasca chev 454 will not start

I recently had similar problem in a 2003 on a Workhorse chassis. My problem was caused by a critter chewing through one of the many wires going to the engine computer. Found it by sheer luck when I noticed a bunch of chewed up acorns on the front of the computer.

RE: How often to disconnect from shore power

I'd disconnect the chassis battery if the MH is not being driven for 6 months at a time. Disconnect the house batteries when the MH is in storage. The house batteries need to be checked for water levels frequently when not disconnected.

RE: RV magazine

Plan to let my subscription run out in June. Not as good as it once was.
