RE: Diesel fuel prices … how is that affecting your RV travel ?

As one man put it, I can buy fuel but I cannot buy more time. Prices will curtail most people's travel, and even stop many of them, but some have the resources and determination to not be deterred at all. We didn't have any trips planned this summer anyway. However, it's not diesel or gas prices stopping us. When we resume travel it won't be as we were accustomed. No long and extended trips for now, hopefully later

RE: Onan 7500 need parts

Get the belt from Cummins because there is no adjustment so the belt must be a near-perfect fit. My gen is on a slide so I could sit up in the space in back of the gen. Removed the necessary panels to get at it. Started 1 of the 4 pulley screws loosely, installed the belt then rotated until the other screws lined up. Don't roll the belt or force it on.

RE: Taos and Santa Fe with 37’ Taos motorhome

Be prepared for lots of walking because I don't think you will be parking close to anything. As stated those are very old cities, very congested especially the areas you'll be wanting to visit.

RE: Best Portable Satellite Dish for Direct TV?

With DTV you are limited to a large dish with 3 LNBs in order to get HD and all of the channels. I currently have DTV that is SD so we can have in motion TV but they keep dropping channels from my programming. However, I don't believe you can even get the SD receivers anymore. They are trying to force me to get HD equipment which I don't want to do. We have been with DTV for about 25 yrs but I plan to change to Dish Net where I believe I can get both HD and in motion along with a friendlier company.

RE: What to do about fire damage

As far as I can see we still don't know what make, model or year the coach is. Those things are important to determine if the coach is even worth fixing. Fire damage can be incredibly expensive and lengthy to repair correctly. The OPs profile shows a 2004 Alpenlite Medinah 5th wheel trailer worth $32k. We know that's incorrect but ???

RE: Class A luggage door hole repair

You should tell us what kind of coach you have. I have a Monaco and my bay/luggage doors are aluminum. The skin is held on to it's frame by double-sided tape and riveted at the top to the hinge. I bet yours is about the same. Most people take the door to a metal shop and have it reskinned then painted.

RE: What to do about fire damage

I assume you have insurance, call them, they need to be involved. Since we have no idea what coach you have and the extent of damage it's hard to give advice. Fire repairs can be so expensive you may be looking at a total. Totaling the coach would probably be the fastest solution.

RE: Gas pump keeps clicking off and slowly fills gas tank

When we had our gas rig we had the same problem. I noticed it would fill pretty well until it got to about 1/2 full then it would start what you described, cutting off and get really really slow. What I found was that the fill pipe did not enter the top of the tank instead it entered the side at approx 1/2 full level. I decided that when the gas in the tank covered the fill pipe the gas entering after that had to lift the gas in the tank resulting in a slow fill Sorry, I never did come up with a fix I just lived with it.

RE: Water heater

Posters above have hit all around the issue at hand, that is you can probably never drain or blow all of the water out of an Aquahot. The problem is, there is not a tank instead the water is stored in coils of copper pipe. People have tried to winterize by blowing the water out only to find some water remained, and that water froze bursting the coil $$$$$. The manual above is not for your Aquahot, yours is probably an AHE-100-02S. So here's hoping that it has not already frozen. If the heat ( Aquahot ) has been running you are probably ok. If your water flow seems good you need to winterize. Buy RV Camco anti-freeze and make sure the Aquahot has anti-freeze.

RE: Best Toad braking System

Initially i thought the brakemaster 9160 for air brakes looked good, but have now been made aware that an airline failure in the toad could negatively impact my coach air brakes. Thanks! The info you received is not true. I have used a Brake master for approx 20 yrs. It is so simple and so basic, and that's its advantage IMHO. Any air brake system for your toad will have an umbilical hose that is plugged in when you tow. Once I failed to couple the hose good at the toad while we were traveling, the coupler dragged on the hiway for miles and miles, the brass coupler was gone. The Air hose was wide open, I never knew it, my brakes on the coach worked fine, and my air pressure stayed up. Air only comes out of that hose when applying the brake. It wasn't until in traffic I began to notice the toad brakes weren't working, coach brakes still worked fine. I bought a new coupler at Graingers and we were on our way. IMHO a Brakebuddy is far more apt to malfunction than any of the toad air brake systems. I have read of many going from a Brakebuddy to an air system, never the other way. BTW 20 yrs ago I was going to use the M&G system but it wouldn't fit the toad we had.

RE: Stranded in Marietta, GA

JR may have hit the nail on the head. The OP has already stated the air drier/filter was trashed. Now I wonder where he is and if he's moving. Hope his air drier is working.

RE: Stranded in Marietta, GA

Assuming you have a tow car get the part number, take lots of pictures, and go looking for one. Acworth/Marietta Ga is right there at Atlanta so you should be able to find plenty of large truck ( semi ) parts stores. The post above using a small 120v compressor is what I would do, then drive it to a truck shop

RE: Where has Executive been?

Yeah, Dennis always had something interesting to add. He is/was a member on Bill D's Monacoers, and I think that's where he said they had bought a house. I think in Idaho, so that may have him busy, or worse, retired from RVing.

RE: Any 80mph PLUS - class Aers still on here ?

Just to be clear 80 is fast, not old.

RE: Anyone else run out of diesel ?

Yep, that's a low-down thing to do. More than likely all they wanted was the fuel. Since you have it running off the 5 gal can, can you go fill the tank? I have primed before by using air pressure ( low ) at the tank fill opening. I placed a shop rag as somewhat of a seal and applied low but constant pressure while someone has a fuel line cracked open at the engine until fuel appears. Good luck

RE: Any 80mph PLUS - class Aers still on here ?

Our tires sizes are only rated to 75 mph same as semis. 65 is fast enough but it's hard to stay there with everyone else passing I find myself wanting to keep up, 80 is my age, not my mph

RE: Onan’s New Inverter Based Generators - Mike Mas

Until Mike's buddy informed him he was indeed full of B.S. he was adamant that none of us had inverter generators, then he switched to " I noticed an immediate change from his 2019 and his new rig. " I have never seen anyone stand by a mixed-up opinion in the face of overwhelming proof like that. WOW He still won't acknowledge he was wrong.

RE: Bubbles on the side of his RV

Seems like the OP never returns to threads so it's hard to know if any of this helped. Happens all the time
