RE: Windshield Replacement Recommendations

We live on Long Island NY and had to replace the 1 pc windshield in our Winnebago. Went through the glass repair people associated with FMCA; can't remember the name. Went to a local auto body shop, the only ones to bid the job and they could not handle it; did not realize it was one pc. They wound up getting a crew from 45 miles away to come out and do the job. Turns out that, I'm guessing due to liability issues, few if any shops in the Northeast will touch one pc windshields. Glass firm said next time we need a windshield go to FL, AZ or CA where there is no problem.

Replacing Thethrod toilet with Dometic

Replacing existing Therford toilet with a Dometic. Parts supplier says I need a mounting kit for this which, according to the description converts 4 bolts to 2 needed for the Dometic. Has any one done this replacement project? Do I need this $45 plate? Utube videos seem to show a direct drop in replacement. Thanks to all who share their knowledge.

RE: Newmar Sold

Well, the Newmar we had was the worst motor home ever. We were constantly repair something. After a year and half we sold at a loss and bought another Winnebago. Hope that Winnebago quality does not degrade to that of our Newmar.

RE: Coach net vs FMCA road side assist

Just called Coachnet to see why their plan was more expensive than FMCA. Turns out our Coach net plan covered MH and cars. Don't need cars as AAA handles that. FMCA base plan is MH only. More interesting is that FMCA uses Coach net.

Coach net vs FMCA road side assist

Currently we have Coachnet. Fortunately, never had to use. It's time to renew and I see that FMCA offers a plan that is cheaper. Has any one used the FMCA? Is it on par with Coachnet?

Toilet mounting

Planning to replace our Thetford toilet with a Dometic 311. From what I can tell, the base mounting bolts are the same. Can any one verify that? Are there any other installation issues I need to be aware of? Thanks for your help.

Toilet replacement

We have had issues with our thetford toilet over the last year. First, the pedal mechanism broke. When it was replaced, the seal was also replaced. Well the seal did not hold water despite letting the pedal slam back. Figured a bad seal and repalced and still have the same problem. Perhaps it's time for a new toilet. Any recommedations on the best one? Don't need a porcelin bowl for the RV.

Battery corrosion

The metal brackets that hold down the batteries tend to collect a lot of "white" stuff. I've cleaned them many times using battery cleaner and then sparying with battery protector. Terminals themselves are clean it's just the hold down brackets. Any suggestions on how to deal with this?

Acadian coastal drive in New Brunswick

Planning to do this scenic route next month in our 27ft motor home. Wonder if the roads along this route are motor home friendly? Any points of interest we should make sure we see or do?

RE: A crappy experience

I once had an problem where the rubber "keeper" strap for the cover got caught in the connection to the hose so it did not seal properly. OMG what a mess to clean up when all I wanted was to sit with a beer after a long drive.

RE: Teddy Roosevelt N.P.

We did both North and South units on our way to and from Glacier liked both. Stayed at Medora Campground. OK but not great - it was convenient. Try to stay off the intersate going to Glacier, much prettier and more interesting staying on state roads. Great auto museum in Chester MT. Good RV park in Shelby part of Comfort Inn. Interesting musuems etc in the little towns along the way. Took our time and enjoyed.

Refriderator replacement

Saw an ad for an Amish cooling system replacement for the Dometic units that uses a compressor and runs 12/120. Has anyone tried this? How does it work? Looks like a $600+ cost and likely not a DIY.

Mobileye collision avoidance system

Saw an ad for the subject system. Runs about $900 plus installation $$. Has anyone installed this? If so, how well does it work? About what were installation costs? I'm figuring at least $500 or so.

RV air conditoner silencer

Saw an article in FMCA magazine about an RV A/C silencer from Wacko Products. It replaces existing filter input housing with a " improved design" that is supposed to reduce noise and provide better filtration. Cost $189. Has anyone tried this? Does it work well enough to justify the money?

RE: Full Wall slide dependability

We had a 2014 Newmar Baystar 29' model with full wall slide. After about a year when going to set up, I noticed chunks of metal in the storage bin where the rear mechanism is. Turned out it was some kind of thrust bearing. After many calls to FL dealers, I finally found one that could see us in 2 weeks instead of 8. When the dealer was fixing the rear he looked at the front and that was about to break also. Even after the fix the slide was not right. This was the final straw in a year and a half of constant repairs and we traded it in.

Replace slide out weather strip

We have a 2015 Winnebago Vista. The weather strip on the bottom of the slide is tearing away from where it attaches to the bottom of the opening. Has any one replaced this? Is it stapled, screwed or glued on? Winnebago was not helpful in saying how it was attached, but does sell replacement strip.

RE: Replaced front pull-around curtain with pull-down shades.

WOW what a great addition. Our previous coach had the motorized shade and it was a real plus when driving into the sun. We now have a 2015 Vista 26H and the sunvisors are useless. Where do you connect the "ignition" wire to? As we have the same year and model coach, can you point me to the MCD part #'s?

RE: Are Newmar coaches constructed better than others?

We had a 2014 Bay Star and it was the worst piece of junk ever!!!! In the year and a half we owned it, the coach was at the dealer 4 times and the factory once. Each time for a long list of items; most of it incredibly poor quality workmanship. There was not one trip we went on that I did not have to repair something many times, with the help of the dealer service. When the full wall slide mechanism broke that was the last straw. Traded in and moved on. While at the factory for 2 days of repairs we took the factory tour. We were amazed at how fast the workers were assembling the coaches almost like there was a race or the place was on fire. If we had done the tour first would not have purchased.
