RE: Over filling

Just reread your post-I answered a question you didn't ask. On mine, if yours is similar-has a switch or lever where the water fill is. this must be turned to what you want-whether city or tank fill. Mine is blue and about 2" long.

RE: Over filling

I have a coachman a couple years newer than you and I have done this twice. One was while filling and not paying attention when it filled up. The other was when I thought I had my water switch on city but it was on tank fill while we took a walk around the CG. The water overflowed for at least 15 minutes. No problems except for a lot of water wasted and a muddy mess around the motorhome. The water just goes out the top vent or overflow and onto the ground.

RE: Class A Low Bridge Accident

I wonder if the google street view camera hit the bridge also. I was looking at it(the street view) clicking to progress forward and when it came to going under the bridge(from both directions) the picture was really messed up. :h :h :h

RE: Enclosed Trailers (car haulers)

Long ways from SoCal, but MTI trailers out of TN is a quality low end trailer. But that is of no use to you unless you plan on driving a couple 3 days. It would be more productive if you posted the brands you’re considering since they’re generally regional mfgs save for the big name mfgs.Is MTI a trailer mfg or a dealer. I couldn't find an MTI trailer mfg in Tennessee. Interested in finding them because I too am thinking about purchasing one. thanks, Gary Sorry, not TN, it's Middlebury Trailer in Indiana. That is the manufacturer. I only owned the one I bought for about 2 weeks, lol. Bought it, loaded it up and drove it cross country at 80-90mph and then sold it. Things that stood out in a "bargain" brand trailer standard features. -Full plywood wall lining, -Engineered wood floor that very robust and supposed to be waterproof. I've bought numerous "budget" cargo trailers that needed another layer of flooring just to be acceptable for anything other than foot traffic. -Side door, even on little trailers with heavy duty bar lock. -Decent amount of stone/rock protection diamond plate - Nice LED lighting, solid diamond plate fenders, standard interior light - Picking color if you order one is no upcharge. - Ramp door felt solid, no flexingI saw the one in Middlebury and wondered if that was it. Thanks for the clarification. Will look into it further. Gary

RE: is replacing hub seals a big job?

Jim-linda is correct, super easy. Any trailer place has replacements. I carry a couple spares. About a buck(or less) apiece.

RE: Inside tire valve extensions

I put metal valve extensions(from NAPA) on my MH. When I screwed them on it began to leak. I backed off a couple turns until the leak stopped. Haven't had a problem in 20k miles.

RE: Dewinterizing 2018 Leprechaun

Oh, when filling the hot water tank, open a hot water faucet either continually until the air stops coming and a solid stream of water flows or stand by it and open it every few seconds until you get a steady stream of water

RE: Dewinterizing 2018 Leprechaun

Just guessing that maybe your bypass valves are not in the proper position. Don't know what the 4th valve is for, but the valves to the water inlet and outlet need to be open and the bypass valve needs to be shut. Imagine the capital letter "H" the valves on each side (the vertical sides)need to be open and the line joining the 2 sides(the bypass valve) needs to be shut. Just the opposite for winterizing. Happened to me a couple times with the exact symptoms you described, when valves were in the proper position-problem solved. Gary

RE: post disappeared??

A few suggestion, click your member name in any post, and select 'View posts'. Or click 'My Forums' and select 'My Posts' link.I did, just didn't see it. So I guess before I pointed a finger at someone I realized that the other three were pointed back at me. DW says she doesn't think I'm as sharp as I used to be and I always argued with her, but now??? No, not going down that road. Glad it was just me that missed it.

RE: Water Heater not lighting

Success!! (thought my post had disappeared) Had to replace the circuit board. Really wish it would have been one of the cheap fixes. Watched a youtube video that said start with the cheap things and work your way up. Would have been awesome if it would have been a corroded grounding screw. But anyway it's fixed. Thanks for the advice. Gary

RE: post disappeared??

:o :o Wow! that's double embarrassing. I thought I posted it in general rving. When I didn't see it there I did a search for my posts, which I didn't see it there either. Good thing I didn't slam the moderaters for that. I would have really had some apologizing to do. Thanks for catching that!!

post disappeared??

Don't know what happened to my post concerning my hot water heater that wouldn't light. The last post was by larrycad suggesting that I check the grounding screw, which I did. Perhaps someone after him posted something offensive-don't know, haven't checked until now. But anyway, thanks for the suggestions, I checked all of them to no avail. Picked up a new circuit board-that was the problem(wished it would have been a cheaper fix, but it wasn't). Everything working ok now. Thanks again, Gary

Batteries are full(but rv is on shore power)- all the connections are tight and clean-I've checked and rechecked them. :h :h

Water Heater not lighting

I have an Atwood DSI water heater(gas only, no pilot) model G6A-8E. Not lighting. When I turn it on, the default light below the switch comes on, then there is one click and it goes out for a few seconds then comes back on-this happens for each click. The igniter used to click several times rapidly to light the gas but this does not happen now. It worked perfectly a couple weeks ago, but then it stopped. I checked the fuses, cleaned all terminals, put it back together and it worked. But only tried it one time. Last week at a CG turned it on and nothing. Replaced the igniter, but same results. Checked the fuses-they're ok. Smell gas. Can these be lit manually? Thought about replacing the board, but hate to spend a couple hundred bucks and that not be the problem. Any ideas???

RE: CG in Central FL With Golf Cart Access to Stores

Blueberry Hill RV resort in Bushnell Fl. right beside Walmart. Close to I75 though. Never been there but have been in the Walmart and Wendy's at the exit and noticed it. Looks like there're packed in pretty tight and not much shade, but that's been about 4-5 years ago.

RE: Have to wonder how this will effect the EV aficionados

Ohio has already started on extra charges. $100 extra for license plates for hybrid cars and $200 for electric vehicles. The plates for my Camry hybrid cost more than my dually, class c and other car-combined. :M :M I'm confused. Why are you angry at being asked to provide a small percentage of your share to keep the roads up?If you go back and read my post more carefully you will see that my beef is this-My Camry hybrid(NOT EV) gets the same mileage as my friends Camry(NON HYBRID) yet I pay $100 more for my registration than they do. We had a Prius for a while(until a deer totaled the car), with the great mileage that we got I had no problem with the extra fee. If I owned an EV I would have no problem with the fee as I would be using no gasoline, therefore no fuel tax-for road maintenance. I know it's only a hundred bucks, which is nothing to me, it's the principle of it.

RE: Have to wonder how this will effect the EV aficionados

Ohio has already started on extra charges. $100 extra for license plates for hybrid cars and $200 for electric vehicles. The plates for my Camry hybrid cost more than my dually, class c and other car-combined. :M :M Be it good or bad, both IMHO At least here in Wa St, EV and log rigs do not pay fuel tax on fuels used to go down the road. So those folks do not pay into funds for repairs. ASSUMING that is how your jurisdiction like mine gets road repair maintenance funds. The extra being paid to register your EV, should and would be expected by me any how, so I'm contributing my share to said projects. I realize some may not agree with this, reality is, we all need to pay for this in some way shape or form. The big question becomes how! MartyMarty, yes that is how Ohio works also, fuel tax pays for road upkeep. Ohio, under the guise that hybrid vehicles use less fuel therefore pay less for the road use than nonhybrid models, this difference must be made up. Theoretically, this is correct, in most cases, but does not take into consideration the mileages on all vehicles-sort of a blanket 'fix'. My Camry hybrid(not an EV) gets 34 mpg; according to my research online and comparing several friends Camrys, their non hybrids are getting the same mpg as my hybrid. Yet I pay $100 more yearly for my registration. This would be easier to swallow if there were several mpg difference. But, as long as I have the vehicle I just pay it while shaking my head, and look at the bright side. I believe Ohio's plates cost much less than most states-about $35 a yr plus $100 hybrid fee, my motorhome is only about $40. We also have no personal property tax on vehicles. So the logical part of me says just shutup and be thankful you're not paying what most other states are paying. But it still irks me a little. Gary

RE: Anybody still tow with an old GM?

05 duramax, just turned over 100k miles. Bought new to pull a 5th wheel-which I never bought. Looks like a new one. I think it was in light snow one time several years ago. People ask me all the time if I want to sell it. Thought about it, but it's long ago paid for, and to replace it is big bucks(plus no def) So it sits in the driveway. I start it and drive it a few miles every couple weeks.
