RE: Heat & A/C on at the same time!

My new FW will allow me to set the heat and AC at the same time. The theory is that if you were to be away all day and it's cold in the am but hot in the afternoon, the heat can run to bring it to temp X and the AC to temp Y. If the temps were set to be the same, I guess it's possible they could both come on at the same time since they are independent systems. They don't use the same ducts however. I guess questions would be how did she know both were on ? Was there a panel that told her this? And how did she know they both came out of the same duct? Does she have a heat pump in her AC unit? It is possible that the ducts could have held hot air when the AC turned on and felt warm until the ducts cooled?

Thanks, confirms what I was thinking.

Heat setting off smoke alarm

First time trying the heat in the new FW. I expected a lot of "new" smell, what I didn't expect was that it would set off the smoke alarm. I don't remember this ever happening in any of our other RV's despite them being new also. There was no visible smoke and I shut it down. Part of me wants to chalk it up to never having been used yet, another part of me thinks there could be some debris in the burner that could be a real danger. I thought I might try it again this weekend with the windows open to let it burn off any "newness". Thoughts?

RE: File transfer via Bluetooth

Not a direct answer to your question, but have you tried emailing it to yourself? that's the easiest way I have found to get a file from one device or another aside from cloud storage.

RE: Child/baby seat confusion

OP, just make sure that the model that you use is rated for a car seat. Once you know its rated for a car seat, you can find a fire station or police station that is certified to install the seats for you if you aren't comfortable doing it yourself. It is a free service. What type of trip are you planning? I hope you have a great and safe time! I doubt the OP will return. This thread is 5 years old and the OP hadn't returned since.

RE: AC leak, help!

“I hadn't gotten around to getting the stain out” Sorry but the stains are the least of your problems. You have wood rot in the floor and ceiling. Walls too I’ll bet. Get a pro to inspect. Determine if economically feasible to repair. And likely mold.

RE: Winegard Acquires WiFiRanger

WiFi Ranger has nothing to do with the WeBoost product. WeBoost is Wilson Electronics. I think you missed the point, Wifi ranger is owned by King. They are marketing and selling a weebost product in direct competition with their new merger. There is no relationship between King and either Winegard or WiFiRanger. WiFiRanger is most definitely not owned by King and no WeBoost products are marketed by WiFiRanger. The King Extend is licensed by Weboost and is a legacy Weboost model rebranded. I was confusing Wifi ranger with Wifi Max so it may be a moot point.

RE: What discount to expect on special-ordered truck?

Depending on the truck, the one I bought was in high demand so your experience may vary. Bought mine brand new from a friend who is the sales manager at a Ford Dealership. I got about $5k off MSRP and most of that was incentives. Covid has slowed production on vehicles and RV's, both in high demand right now. High demand, low supply = less negotiating room.

RE: How often and how to clean black tank

“then there is an inadequate amount to drive biodecomposition.” RVs have holding tanks. While breaking up “chunks” for easy dumping is a good thing RV tanks are not made for decomposing. I have always wondered, are there signs in there that tell the ever-present microbes to NOT do what they normally do? It's not in there long enough to decompose - at least it shouldn't be in there that long. It's a holding tank not a septic tank. Sure the microbes exist - unless you add bleach.

RE: Bubble bath

No,...heading home Friday. We are right across the road from the showers and the loo, so we’re ok with slow faucets for now. I’ll check everything out when we get back. These are things you can check while you are camping.

RE: Bubble bath

Replace pump? have you ruled out all the suggestions noted so far? If not, replacing the pump won't fix your problem.

RE: Needs multi-platform website monitor for son's online usage

Are these school provided devices or your own that allow you to access the school's systems? School provided devices - at least my son's - are locked down already. Almost all sites are blocked and you can't load anything to it.

RE: banks

Sounds about how real chicken farming works. Small pens so they can't move and stuff em with fillers and antibiotics.

RE: 1995 Bounder 36' increasing towing cap 3500 to 5,000 lbs

Thanks to all who weighed in. What does the gallery think of this? Beef up every system? 1. Go to slotted and cross drilled and ventilated brake rotors front and either convert the rear to disc or go to the next bigger size of drums. 2. Add say 25% more volume radiator 3. Beef up the Hitch to a 5 or better yet 10k 4. Install an oil cooler and transmission cooler 5. Lower the rear end ratio or replace the entire rear axle with something bigger, beefier and have a push button locking differential 6. Replace the fuel delivery system with state of the art in 2020 fuel injection 7. Replace stock exhaust with headers going into an oversized single pipe I have so little money in this rig that I could add these improvements one at a time. Any comments on the ideas? You didn't mention beefing up the frame. The stock extensions are rated at the current hitch. Your frame would need some re-engineering. Playing devil's advocate, sounds like you spent very little money on this rig and that's fine. But even if you do every single upgrade - which by the way may still not work - it will add nothing to the value of the motor home. If you plan on keeping this a long time it's a moot point, but you won't get your money back out of it. If it were me - and I understand I am not you - the money spent on all these upgrades that may still not work, could be spent on an RV already built that will work. Or a TOAD that this one can handle.

RE: Bubble bath

Outdoor shower valves open? Cracked filter screen assembly on the pump?

RE: Food for thought

No, that’s like saying a fried egg is fried chicken. Still Chicken - both fried.

Food for thought

Isn't egg salad still chicken salad?

RE: Is it a good time to sell?

Really my biggest concern is that I'll sell then regret it later :) The good news is, there should be plenty of lightly used units on the market next year if you change your mind.

RE: 1995 Bounder 36' increasing towing cap 3500 to 5,000 lbs

The easiest option would have been to buy an RV that met your needs. It's pretty hard to take an existing MH with all it's engineered tolerances/limitations and turn it into something with greater capacities - especially towing. Sure you can do it - anything can be done if you throw enough money at it, but at what cost and worth. Or keep the MH you have and get a lighter TOAD or, rent a car at your destination.
