RE: Dometic Refrigerator inoperative

Dump it, install a residental refer and go happy. You really think this helps anyone??????????? Doug Yea, I do. Makes perfect sense. There are numerous horror stories concerning absorbition refers that it makes sense if Keystone refuses to fix it, and Dometic cant figure it out.

RE: DirecTV Help

Using any number of places get the coordinates for the bird. Load a clear line of site place the dish, set the angles and elevation, connect the coax between the dish and receiver. Turn on receiver and go to setup and start searching. Without the correct tools and unless you have practiced already, good luck.

RE: Maintenance and repair comparison

Tires on a fiver? Your either buying really cheap tires or you have axle problems! My fiver is going on 12 years old and only on its second set of shoes.

RE: Dish Satellite and TV brand

You can almost always find a code that will work. I know zdirect has some genearic codes that will work. With the newer ewuipment it should have the ability to auto find the TV and then program itself.

RE: Airstream Shower

Should be an easy fix regardless. The potable water system is one system for all. So he just needs to do a bit of searching to find the problem and fix it.

RE: Dish Satellite and TV brand

Why inmheck you you limit yourself to only crappy 12 volt TVs? Most all smaller TVs have a transformer to drop from 120VAC to 12 volrs DC. So, go pick a TV in size and picture quality you like the best, take it home and connect away. BTW why 12 volt? Your dish receiver will need 120 volts anyhow.

RE: Montana or Silverback input please

The Silverback will be a step down from your Montana. In the FR specifically Cedar Creek line up the Silverback is considered the entry point. Not that they are not nicelly equipped, but just saying. Their floor plans are geared more toward families. Our CC is fast approaching 12 years old. Except for some wear it still looks like new. I can still call CC parts and have the correct part a week later via UPS.

RE: Looking for "a halfway spot" Coeur D'Alene to Bend

There is a nice state park just west of John Day. From there its an easy drive on 26 to Prineville where you can head south on 97 a short 18 miles.

RE: Dometic 2663 RM fridge won't stay lit

Obviously you have a gas flow problem. Start by checking for a kinked or blocked line.

RE: Tires

Why? LT tires have a much better life expentency So you recommend that the OP goes from a load range F tire to an E, giving up about 900lbs of capacity with out even knowing what the application is. This LT obsession here is nuts! :S Completely agree. I swear, some people believe you need LT's on a wheelbarrow! Op, not sure about the first tire you mentioned, but the Carlisle Radial RH is a great tire for the money and the new Radial HD looks very good also. And as many here will mention, possibly look at LT tires also. But don't drink the koolaid they are serving saying it's the miracle fix all and your best option. Make your own educated and informed decision. Amazing how few people actually read any more. I NEVER said anything about going to a lower load rating. I SIMPLY SAID BETTER LIFE EXPENTENCY! But like Jimlin said, if, that is IF the OP has 6K axles then any decent LT tire will do. If he has 7K axles, maybe he should consider 17.5 inch tires with well over 4500 pound load carrying capacity. Either would still be far superior to any ST tire.

RE: gas smell

Smell gas! Usually indicates one of a couple things. First thing that comes to mind is bad fuel pump. Second is fuel leak likely a bad fuel line or possibly,mif carbuetor equipped a stuck float. Either way, fix it before you get stranded along side the road.

RE: 2 tire related questions

If he has 7K axles under his toy hauler, suggest he invest in 17.5 inch tires. They offer somewhere around 4500 pound load rating each, and have really good reviews.

RE: Full time soon / advice needed

Find a mail forewording service locally. There should be lots on FL as a lot of full timers register there. The level of service they offer varies, so figure out what your needs are and pick one that matches tour needs. Start now getting rid of stuff. Storage, while an option can get expensive in a hurry.

RE: Keystone or Heartland for my new camper

Pin weight! Fifth wheels carry at least 20 and as much as 25% of their total weight as pin weight. Translated that means your truck could be carrying 3 to 4 thousand pounds of the trailers weight directly over the rear axle. Thus the need for a dually for that much trailer.

RE: Caulking type around lights

To do it right, take the lights off, pop the cap and two screws. Clean everything really well, apply a new bead of butyl putty tape. And put it back together. Next day using a plastic scraper, remove the excess putty and apply a bead of Dicor around the top and sides. Be sure to leave the bottom with no Dicor to allow a place for water to escape.

RE: Low voltage on one side

113 volts? That is well within the allowable 10%.
