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

RE: Bubbles on the side of his RV

Read this thread Ray Thank you very much for the link. You did a great job that most people would not have went to to repair this. My uncle was a boat builder and I have seen him drill holes and plate both sides and inject resin back into the damage spot. Gene Gene, it wasn't me doing the repair. It was another member of Monacoers. Ray

RE: old diesel fuel in tank

I've heard good things about StarTron, that it can digest algae in the tank I use Biobor as a preventative so algae will not grow in the tank. Ray 03 Windsor

RE: Chrome exhaust for generator

O'Reilly's auto parts has these on the shelf. Other auto parts should have also. Many of those are chrome over plain steel and won't last very long. I have tried them. Stainless is best.

Get one that is stainless steel or chromed stainless. Here is a 1 1/2"

RE: Toto tires

Good Year and Michelin both proved to be problems on Mohos, rivering, cracks and, blowouts. Then a few yrs ago Bridgestone became the tire of choice on larger coaches. I had a set of Bridgestone and loved them but eventually, they became as expensive as GY and Michelin. The along came TOYOs at a more reasonable price so after others reported good experiences with TOYOs I cautiously bought a set of 6 sizes 295/80/22.5 I have only praises for my TOYOs and as mine age out I will buy TOYOs again.

RE: Inside tire valve extensions

I have learned the hard way that extensions are just another possible problem. The best solution is a new stem specially shaped to bring the end out where you want it. They are available at the link above, here it is again. Dually Valves

RE: Satalite tv

I believe with Dish you can activate it when traveling and turn it off when you want. Seems simple enough.
