RE: Grants Pass to Reno

We take this route often: I-5, 89, 44, 36, 395 This is very doable in any RV. BTDT many times. That is our preferred route also. Our favorite unless it's snowing.

RE: How do I lower the pick-up tube for my genset

Extended my generator fuel pickup tube an extra 3 inches. I traced the pickup line from the generator and then removed the pickup tube from the tank. I was able to purchase a nylon fuel line repair kit at Auto Zone PN 800-064 for $15.99. The kit came with both a 5/16 and 3/8 nylon fuel line about 18 inches long. I needed the 5/16 line. I just cut off the old nylon line, heated the end of the new line with a hair dryer and it slipped right on the fitting. I trimmed the line at a 45 degree angle 3 inches longer than the original pickup tube. I really don't rely on my fuel gauge and try to fill around 500 miles into a tank so don't think I will have any problems as that is about 3/4 of a tank. Just tired of my generator running out of fuel on the hills at about 300 miles in to a tank.

RE: 2011 Coachman Freelander 32bh Transfer Switch location?

Follow your power cord back into your rig. The box it enters is most probably your power transfer switch. When you find the box have someone turn the power off then on the box should make an audible click or thump sound. With power disconnected remove the cover and visually inspect for melted wires. Tighten all connections. This is a maintenance item that really should be done once a year anyway. Having your AC on when switching from shore to generator is not recommended but in most cases would only blow the breaker on the generator or in the power panel.

RE: Convenience center panel question.

CEKKK has the definition correce. Just showing your water heater is not on. If you refilled your propane then there is a little air in the line and it may take two or three tries to get it to stay lit.

RE: Show Low AZ ????

In the summer the valley people head to the mountains to escape the heat. In the winter it snows like H. E. double toothpicks.

RE: 2000 harney coach ...trick to start?

Could the trick have been to push a battery boost button tying the house and coach batteries together? Not all coaches charge the starting batteries while parked and plugged into shore power.

RE: Hypothetical DC electrical Question

I would not take a chance that the on board systems would automatically supply charging voltage to the engine batteries. Some only do so after they sense that the house batteries are at full charge. What I have done in the past is just carry a set of jumper cables. I start the generator then jumper from the house battery plus post to the engine battery plus post. No need to jumper the negative since they share a common ground. Over the years this has gotten me home more than once.

RE: slow moving slides

Probably do not have enough information to give you any definitive answer but I will give it a go. Have they always been slow or is this a new problem? Do they move faster when you are plugged into shore power if so you probably need to check your batteries. Do you use any type of slide seal lubricant? Might help

RE: Camping World service is non existent.

It's not just Camping World or one mfg. There is an excellent series on RV Daily Report on the subject of Service, support, and manufacturing quality. This is a multi part series so check it out. I think he posts every other day or so with a new update. RV Death Spiral: Manufacturers in race to the bottom

RE: What do you do with the grill grease?

line the bottom with foil, roll it up and throw it away. Then wipe everything down with paper towels.

RE: Diuretics R us

Just wait until you are driving the RV. Those rest areas seem to have moved further and further down the road!! Mmmmmm......my RV IS my rest area. :) Not if your driving down the road unless your one of those people we read about that just puts it on cruise control and gets up to go to the back.

RE: Thor buys Jayco

Wow! Thor now owns Entegra. I don't care if they say they are independent or not just as I was considering a Cornerstone they pull the plug. Guess it pays to procrastinate. Not going to happen now!

RE: Boondock on Oregon coast and CA coast

Probably your best bet for boondocking on the Oregon coast is the Indian casinos and they are few and far between. I know Chinook Winds in Lincoln City and Three Rivers in Florence allow overnight camping. The Mill Casino in Coos Bay used to allow free overnight but I think they charge now.

RE: Oregon/California coast--best time of year?

Mid to late September is the best. The sun is out, the winds have died down, and the kids are back in school. Don't tell anyone though, we Oregonians like that time for ourselves.

RE: just purchased fuel milage horrible

Are you sure it does not have two tanks and you filled one and then ran on the other one? I had an old class A like that once, when it coughed you had to manually switch tanks.

RE: folding ladders from CW on sale, reviews please

I sold mine. I never felt real safe on mine since I was pushing the weight limit and it just did not feel all that sturdy. The other problem I had with it was if I got lazy and did not fold it up and store it away. If I left it open under the motorhome the joints would collect dirt and grit and it would not fold up easily.
