RE: Baltimore to Haleysville, Al

Although I cannot imagine any reason to go to Haleyville, AL. you best route is I40 toward Nashville, I840 around to I65, and on south from there.

RE: Nashville Tenn Camping World Incompetance

Have used CW in Nashville several times. Your complaint is very common on this site, especially for that store. Situation has not improved anytime in the last few years. They are much more interested in selling new or used rigs, which may or may not have unrepaired or hiddeen problems. Check posts on this forum, and be warned.

RE: Looking to get rid of magnet lights

Its done by wiring into the existing taillights with diodes to prevent feedback. Check with Blue Ox, they should be able to provide what you need.

RE: Gulfstream Water Heater Light and Switch

Red light is whenever heater is turned on, and gas has not ignited. Ours stays on about 10 seconds after switch is turned on, then goes out when flame lights. Standard safety feature of gas water heaters.

RE: cell phone data use warming

Yep, got it disabled and set for WiFi only. Not sure how it got set on, but these things are so touchy now, and the defaults are set to use the most, unless you realize and reset it. I am one of the original computer dinosaurs, and don't care for the cloud stuff either. I like to just download to my computers and keep backups there.

cell phone data use warming

my cell plan with AT&T has served me very well, but I ran into a problem this month. AT home, my phone uses wifi for data, instead of my limited data plan. I did not notice that "Google Plus" was doing backups to its cloud servers every day. When we got out on the road this month, I had used the phone to make a number of pictures, and then later, when I turned on mobile data to check for something. Google Plus backed up all my new photos the proceeded to use all mu limited data, and more. Cost me a few dollars for extra data use, but you can believe that it is turned OFF now. Tried to uninstall the App, but as it came on the phone, It won't let me uninstall. Does anyone know how to unstall this type stuff that comes on your smartphone??

RE: "Old fashioned State Parks?

We have observed the same things. Unfortunely, the younger folks controlling the money to do the upgrades see no reason to spend it to benefit anyone except themselves and what they want to do. Seniors don't even exist. If it was for their benefit, it would be done tomorrow!

RE: FW pump question

Check it valve from tank to pump that switches between tank and antifreeze input line. Sounds like it is still set to pull from af line in read of tank.

RE: battery

Generally, no. However, if you have a big enough inverter, anything is possible.

RE: PITA Topping Off Propane

Also, if the vendor has an unpleasant attitude, or does not want to sell less that a certain amount, I find someplace else with better attitude. I try not to do business with vendors that do not appreciate my business, small as it may be.

RE: PITA Topping Off Propane

Probably not a good idea,, unless you have a nozzle to fit the fill connection on the tank. Most fill valves have a limiter that will not allow you to fill over 80% to leave expansion room. The other options you suggest might allow you to overfill, which could present problems. The places I fill always open the overflow valve before filling, then fill until liquid comes out. that assures that the tank is no more than 80% full.

RE: warm up time

Unless designed and built for colder climates, most RVs do have a lack of good insulation, and are not known as ideal homes in which to spend a cold winter. That is why they are called recreation vehicles rather that living vehicles.

RE: Is it ok to drive one RV at small cities ?

We normally don't, just because of the difficulty getting in and out of the campsites, but there is no reason why you can't, especially in a smaller RV, such as a truck camper or a class B. All it is is instead of going to the grocery and bringing stuff home, you take home to the grocery.

RE: Two found dead in rv

Please note that in this case, propane was not the cause of death! Yes propane can kill, but even worse is the fact that burning propane or any other flame creates carbon Monoxide. Propane will ignite or blow up. CO just kills you quitely. I don't really care for gas stoves in the RV or home, but this case was not the fault of the stove or the propane, but leaving a burner burning which used up all the propane after the people died from CO. The question is , why did the CO detector not wake them? Did they even have one?? I think that they are required in any house or RV where gas of any type is used. I think that the lack of warning in this case should be of more concern than the use of propane. BTW, I checked with the local fire Dept and gas depts to find out how to test a CO detector. Neither had any idea except to push the test button, and had never heard of any other way. Seem like a small can of CO would be a good product for testing a detector. Of course, it could not contain enough gas to harm a person, just enough for a one-shot detector test.

RE: Two found dead in rv

Carbon Monoxide is a odorless, colorless gas that will kills by replacing the oxygen in your body. It is produced from a lot of sources, mainly unvented gas flames or heaters. In this case, if the burner was left on as they say, the flame wold produce carbon Monoxide, then after a period, the gas would run out and the flame would die. a bit of residual gas could have produced some odor, but not enough to disturb two people who were already dead from Carbon Monoxide.

RE: Towing at 75mph

Youth and education are no match for age and experience, mixed with common sense. If you need to fly, use an airplane, not a RV. They do not fly well!

RE: '94 Winnebago Brave - Won't start

Sounds a lot like a problem I had years ago. In my case, like you said, battery seemed to charge, but would not start car. To make it short, I had a corroded battery cable! It had corroded inside the insulation, and there were no signs at all on the outside. there sere only a few strands of wire left inside, which did not carry enough to run the starter. Don't know if this would help, but its another thing to check.

RE: Led light strip install

Sounds like Camping World!!! I sure hope you didn't pay that! Tell us (the forum) more about what you are doing, and we can help. Lots of us have done a lot replacing lights with LEDs and installing LED strips. Pictures if possible.
