RE: The importance of a TPMS Tire Pressure Monitoring System

I learned a long time ago some folks are just set in their ways and no matter how you explain the benifits of some devise, they will come up with a way to say it isn't needed. Those of us that see how something "could" keep us safer, might jump at the chance to purchase said item. I know from first hand experiance that tire pressure monitor systems can and do help in many situations, and I am a beliver in owning a system. As I always say, you get to spend, or not spend your money anyway you want. The original poster has seen the reason so many of us have decided to buy what makes us feel safer.

RE: Buying a new class A

Have had gas and now diesel, all purchased used and well cared for. The V-10 Ford powered 34 ft 2018 gas was fine for the traveling we did and it pulled our towed car fine. But was noisey and not a great ride, so moved to a Tiffin RED 34 ft, night and day difference in quiet, ride and quality. Then moved up to a 40 ft Tiffin Bus, even nicer. For the money your wanting to spend you should be able to find a quality well kept used Tiffin. Good luck in your hunting

RE: full size corner bed vs queen corner bed

Conner beds are not my cup of tea! They are really hard to make up, and if your on the inside, hope you can sleep the entire night without waking up! We made that mistake ONCE, our first travel trailer we kept for exactly 2 outings, and put it up for sale. Never again own a corner bed RV.

RE: Bay View RV Resort in Texas has Workamper Openings:

Exactly and well said! And the previous posts are exactly why no park advertises for workampers on this site anymore. If you don't want the job, don't apply. But for many workampers there is more to consider than just exactly how you break down the hourly wage. Would you actually come out ahead working at Walmart for those 20 hours at $15.00 an hour? You would then have to pay for an RV site, utilities, the cost of commuting etc. The work for site arrangement isn't taxed. You would not have the advantage of working where you live which allows you to check on your pets, eat lunch at your own home and be at work in 10 seconds. If you are a couple and one of you worked outside of the park, the other person would either have to drive you to and from work or spend the day without transportation. There is much more to consider other than math.

RE: Tiffin or Fleetwood.

Have now owned 2 Tiffin motorhomes, both were fantastic and have enjoyed the last one the most. Calling for questions is always answered correctly and quickly by Tiffin staff.. When I needed a part that too was handled well. When time comes to upgrade, I will look at what THOR did to Tiffin before making that decision.

RE: Cali planning carb tests for Class A

Just one more reason to never go there and not spend a penny of my money in that state.

RE: TFT Code for ScanGauge 2 ??

When I was having difficulty getting my Ford V-10 class C to read the trans temps after trying all the manual suggestions, I called Scan-Gage and they explained what I had missed. That made it work, so might want to just call them.

RE: Patching Coroplast

I had cut the bottom of my 5th at least 4 times when doing work up under the trailer for slide out motors, plumbing and some electrical. Went to the Lowe's and bought 2x1 6ft wood and cut it to lay on each side of the cut out overlapping the edge by 1 inch. Screwed that wood to the uncut coreplast kleaving the 1 inch over the hole. Put the coreplast up and screwed that to the wood. Was able to get back uop into the bottom by removing the screws when needed. Never had it fail and fall down.

RE: Tire valve Stems

All the truck tire shop did on my last big truck was replace the rubber gaskets used on the metal stems, not replacing the complete stem. That seems to me not a needed thing to do, but don't know for sure. I would ask why and maybe even ask other truck tire shops the reason for replacement.

RE: Residential Refrigerator Issue

Having had both, the rv and the residential, no way would I ever go back if I had to pull the rv one out. More useful room, better temp control and overall nicer appearance in our rig.

RE: Are Any Places To Stay Open Near Scottsdale Arizona?

We are sitting in Deserts Edge RV park ( on the I-17 & 101 expressway seems they have a few open sites. The manager lady said getting some cancellations and might have a few spots when they would normally be full.

RE: Shower Door

We removed the small entry sliding glass door in a Class C we had and tried the shower curtain for a while. Then found this company and bought the retractable shower door. WOW, easy to install, worked great and we were very pleased with the look and operation. Give this company a look sliding door

RE: 5 Star Tune

I had a 2018 34 ft Holiday Rambler that I towed a 2015 Cadillac SRX with. I added the 5 Star tune and it made the V-10 "wake up" and seemed to acclerate and shift better. Never saw any fuel mileage increase, but liked driving the rig more so probably used the acclerator pedal more? Was going to sell the rig so removed the 5 Star and had forgot how dull it was without. Ended up selling to a relative so put the 5 Star back in and showed the new buyer the difference, he said LEAVE IT hooked up!! No comparrison in with and without.

RE: Removing old sealant from fiberglass roof

Plastic scraper with a hair dryer. Or, a heat gun on low. This is how I did it a couple of years ago. Was a slow process, but once you get started should not take more than 1 hour, at least that was how it went for me.

RE: How to clean water stains on ceiling fabric

I'm terribly sorry for posting here but I have a similar problem and I'm wondering if you managed to fix this problem Which problem? the loose a/c unit or the stained ceiling? yes to both, took the grill down from inside the rv and tightened the 4 lag screws holding the roof unit to the rv. That stopped the water leak when driving in the rain. Then as above stated, Folex and carpet cleaner with the carpet cleaner machine.

RE: Cleaning the carpet?

I have used Folex purchased at Home Depot, spray on a micro fiber and rub that on the dirty areas of the carpet. Really bad spot, spray directly on the spot, use a dry micro fiber cloth laid on the spot and use my foot with a shoe to pressure blot the area. Then vacuum, Folex worked really well on the ceiling areas where water leaked in at the a/c unit.
