RE: Jantzen Beach RV Park

A quick look at RV Park Reviews would have shown you each of your concerns. This is an old park who's only real claim to fame is it's convenient location to Portland and even that has it's drawbacks due to traffic congestion.

RE: Bizarre California health care sitch

Does your receipt show the full amount then the discount or just the discounted price? either way if it were me I would be requesting a fully itemized statement to compare to my receipt then submitting copies of both with notations to the billing dept. You don't need a nasty surprise like them just calling then turning you over to collections.

RE: 1999 Diplomat, no power inside unless plugged in

Starting with the Salesman switch next to the door which I assume is on. This switch controls a relay that turn on/off all 12 volts to the house. This relay is notorious for failing and many people just move both of the wires to one side of the relay essentially eliminating it. On my coach this relay is in the compartment directly beneath the driver but yours may or may not be there.

RE: I am scared!

We miss our 04 Tropi-Cal T396 in so many ways but, it was time to move on. Of course we went bigger rather than smaller.

RE: 2014-2015 Ford Explorer as a Tow Vehicle

Towed an 08 Explorer for several years now towing a 2014 Explorer. Purchased both to have the third row seat. When traveling we put both back rows down and use the platform as storage. Not sure about front wheel drive being towable. We have the four wheel drive automatic package. Also believe you need to avoid the eco boost model. Only problem we have found with the new one has been that it has too many systems that run with the key in the first click and the battery was going dead. Had to add a charge line from the motorhome that we did not need on the 08.

RE: Awning replacement locking knobs?

Get a Dremel tool and notch the channel enough to remove the old nut and install a new one.

RE: Eggs left in refrigrator

Buy or rent an ozone generator. I got one like This on ebay. If that does not get rid of the smell you will need to replace the frig.

RE: Best route from Rockaway Beach Ore to Silverlake Wa...

I would take US 30 to Longview, cross over into WA on WA 433 to I-5 on truck route. WA 4 is very twist and narrow in some areas. US 30 is a good two lane highway, well traveled by RVs. X2 on this route. Be sure to watch for the truck route on your right after you cross the bridge into Washington as it is easy to miss and the road through Longview is not as easy as the truck route although it is doable with the motorhome.

RE: Coach Air Dryer Desiccant Filter

How about a long piece of pipe over the handle of the strap wrench to increase your torque?

RE: Awning

You really only have two options. where the 3 inch piece is out you could try to bend the "C" channel open a little more then use a plastic putty knife and force the rope back into the channel. After the rope is back in the channel you then would bend the "C" channel closed again. The other option is to take the screws out of the end of the rope at each end of the channel then pull the awning out one end of the channel until you get past the part that is out then reinstall.

RE: Will these scratches buff out?

Just the fact that they say it is a Monaco makes me want to buy it. They seem like very truthful people.

RE: How long can moisture stay in walls?

If the moisture is trapped inside the walls it could take a long time to dissipate and cause a lot of damage. If it were my rig and an inspection of the wall did not show any soft spots I would try to find an inconspicuous area at the top and bottom of the wall and cut holes where you could circulate air using a fan and possibly some duct work. After the moisture meter showed it was dry I would either buy or rent an ozone generator and circulate ozone through the same holes to kill mold and mildew.

RE: yuma law re pets in RV

First, it's their park and if they want to see vaccination papers I don't see a problem. Ran into something similar several years ago. We just called our vet and he faxed the park a copy of our dogs shot records. No problem, no charge.

RE: Coach Lighting Short

bpreece: Will that cable tracker work through a floor or a wall, particularly when I'm not even sure where the wire is located? westend: All good ideas to try next. I feel sure I know what circuit it is on. I have all the fuses identified. ScottG: Yes, I realized that right after I posted the first note. Thanks. Another question: Each wire leaving the 12V power panel is a different color. I presume each entire circuit is the same color. Is that a common practice for RV wiring? This will read through wallboard and even a few inches underground for buried cable.

RE: Coach Lighting Short

Go buy one of these Cable Tracker shut off all power to the coach and hook it up at the light.

RE: Oregon is on the Bucket List

Not only is a fall trip doable but you just might experience the best weather we get all year. Definitely do the Oregon coast; the winds will have stopped and the sun will still be shining. Just about as good as it gets. Just don't tell anyone because we really don't want too may tourists. OH and bring money!!!!!!!!

RE: LED's not working

LED's are polarity conscience. Did you try reversing the wires on the LED's?
