RE: Dipping my fuel tank

I think it's going to matter a great deal what coach you're talking about. Are you sure you can't get to the fuel line/top of the tank? Have you tried tightening the hose clamps?

RE: HwH is getting Ridiculous

Racklefratz, I can feel your frustration and anger. You obviously know who Doug is and that he has 40 yrs in the industry so I'm sure he knows a thing or two about RVs. Maybe you do too, we don't know. Now I will agree that Doug is not always as tactful as one might want, but he does share his knowledge and has a right to his opinion. Having been in business I can attest that some customers can wear on you, and some have an exaggerated idea of their importance and cannot be satisfied. That's not to say each one is not important. Companies have their struggles too, primarily to survive and be profitable. Anyway, we all know that the world is screwed up right now in just about every way possible. IMHO politics are primarily responsible for most of it. It's never going to be perfect and might not ever be halfway normal again unless voters come to their senses. In the meantime all we can do is deal with life as it comes, and be thankful we don't live somewhere like Ukraine.

RE: Exhaust brake quit working

2-stage exhaust brake? Are you sure? Not an engine brake? I believe a 2-stage is an engine brake. An engine brake is much more effective.

RE: 2009 Damon Avanti No power ?

Hi so bad invertor could stop the engine from starting ? The inverter will not directly stop the engine from starting, however on most class A coaches the inverter is a combination inverter & battery charger. So, if the charger is not charging you may end up with dead batteries. On some coaches the inverter doesn't charge the engine batteries, they might only be charged by the alternator, and the alternator may not charge the house batteries. It all depends on how the coach was designed and if the system is still operating properly. Fortunately, those design limitations can easily be overcome. Virtually any coach that sits unconnected to shore or solar power will develop dead batteries, sometimes in just a few days. You said they pulled the coach inside. So, did they jumper cable it to get it started? Have they tried to repair the electrical problem? With good batteries installed do the systems seem to work? Things could seem ok with good batteries only to go down again if they are not being charged.

RE: CARB smog testing motorhomes Every 4months by 2024

Apparently, none of us actually read the document. I decided to read it and found this. (The program also will apply to California-registered motorhomes, which will be required to undergo compliance testing once annually) Not 4 times, only once a yr, Right?

RE: Best ride for the buck

Newer pick up and a travel trailer. Our new truck and FW rides just fine. What we miss are the advantages of a Class A while travelling. As we travel further and make plans for longer and longer trips, things like bathroom accessibility, travelling with pets, access to food etc etc, while on the road become more important. When we bought our FW our plans were to travel shorter and stay longer. Now we are shifting to travelling longer and staying shorter. And after having a FW for 2 years I can say that parking, driving etc are so much easier in a Class A - for me anyway. A towed car behind a MH tracks with the MH. FW is a whole different animal. And I would guess a truck and TT would be worse than a FW. You stated the case very well, I've heard it said that if you arrive and stay awhile a 5th wheel may be better suited but if you tend to travel more, then a moho makes sense. We are on our 2nd pusher and when moving from a gasser the quietness sold us immediately, we didn't have to yell at each other, we could hear the radio, & tv. When stopping, there is no need to get out if it's raining or dark, etc. My BILs with 5th used to say you have to drag a car around I said, you have to drag a trailer around, and you have to stop for the DW to pee. Besides, I've got 2 vehicles in case something goes wrong, and having an extra vehicle has saved me a couple of times, I just unhooked and drove to get a part, another time was to go get fuel. That said most RVs just sit unused or they are used very little which is a shame but life gets in the way. Either one trailer, gasser, or diesel is great fun if you use it.

RE: oil change

Find a storm drain and let her rip. NO NO NO don't do it. It's not right and a good way to end up in jail. Or at least a hefty fine. Those days are long gone and were always wrong. Plus it'll give all RVers a bad reputation++++

RE: oil change

One thing I'll add is since my Cummins ISL diesel filter holds approx 2 quarts of really black oil I punch a hole in the bottom and let it drain while the engine drains. Full of oil it's heavy and if I dropped it, it's bound to make a mess.

RE: Clogged Black Tank

You gotta always have some water in there. That stuff will dry and turn to concrete or maybe it's crapcrete. Anyway, water is your friend. I have added lots of water just to dump. I knew not much was in there but wanted to dump before getting home. I like to have a strong swoosh of a dump so add water, then dumped, add water again for another dump then add water again to go home.

RE: Clogged Black Tank

Well, it appears he at least got it drained & forgot to come back. Or he's still sputtering, spitting, and cleaning up. We need to know.

RE: Zone 2 ac putting out heat,ie. COOL on.

He has an 06 Travel Supreme which I believe has a 5 button thermostat unless it's all been changed.

RE: Considering first DP - any advice?

I have had DPs since 1997 even a Monaco Dynasty with 4 slides and 450hp. I hated that thing and only kept it a year. Interesting, I always considered the Dynasty to be the gold standard of RVs. Never heard bad things about them before. What made you hate yours?

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.
