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?

RE: Expansion tank electrical question

Maybe I am missing something here. If you are worried about the tank being fully pressurized why not just open a faucet until the pump starts then close the faucet.

RE: Vented or Ventless Combo Washer/Dryer

Sorry Dick, I had not read your post. I have never seen a coach where the installation of the washer/dryer was not on an outside wall. So yes in your case a non vented is better than the other option.

RE: Vented or Ventless Combo Washer/Dryer

RE: **UPDATE** Strange Rescue Organization Encounter

We tried to adopt a dog at an adoption event at a Petsmart in Las Vegas about 3 years ago. We were turned down because we travel in a motorhome and don't have a fenced back yard. Ended up buying our Golden off of Craigs List. She loves to travel and we walk five to six miles every day so she gets plenty of exercise.

RE: Can this be removed?

It's normal for them to drag but if you are tearing up you driveway you can remove them and install a couple of these skid wheels

RE: Sewer Hose Supports

Sewer hose supports at the campsite help to protect the hose from rocks, goat heads, and other things that might puncture it. Most dump stations are concrete or blacktop and sloped well so support is not needed unless you find laying the hose on a possibly unclean spot a problem. I use chunks of gutter at the campsite and nothing at the dump stations.
