RE: New to the V10.. Low fuel pressure

Just had mine replaced. It was doing the same thing for a couple of years. I had half a tank of gas. Don't know if they drained then replaced it, they never said. It starts great now, best in years. I cost me a bit over $1300.00, but that included having a mechanic come to my house to diagnose the problem, then had it towed (AAA) to the repair shop.

RE: water heater boil over

Mine does it every time I start the water heater. I ignore it because I know it is the air bubble loss.

RE: You picked a fine time to leave me loose wheel

All I can say is that I read the title of your thread yesterday, and It didn't make any sense. I re-read it tonite after a few glasses of wine, and now it makes sense. Very funny!!!!

RE: Camper Bedding Question from newbie

We have used a Travasak for 12 years. Search Camping World. They are a bit expensive but have been worth it for ease of use.

RE: Electrical Question on class C

mine is accessed from under the dinette seat, directly behind the exposed panel shown in pic 3. Had mine replaced several years ago and upgraded to 2 6volt batteries.

RE: How can a GS Park not give my 10% off for extended stay?

That is always the the way they do it at Moss Landing RV Park. I always wondered about it too. I always get about $62.00 off, but the balance should be 10% off of that. If it is done how they do it now, it is cheaper than getting 10% off of 7 nights. It hasn't been a big deal for me.

RE: How to deal with neighbor noise in quiet hours?

Maybe the OP could use the early morning wake up to get our of bed during the warming of the truck next door and go Pee. That's the time (at my age (69) that I usually go then I crawl back to bed.

Just had mine replaced last month. The fuel pump was over $600 and with labor, it came to over $1300. The gas tank has to be dropped because the pump in in the top of the tank.

RE: Is a house battery necessary if plugging in at campground?

I don't want to sound rude, but if you have to "Budget" for a battery, you may want to re-think getting a Recreational Vehicle. They are like boats -- Money Pits. I wish I had re-thought before I bought one.

RE: Please remove your hitch

My wife tells me to stop looking at my phone when I am walking. I have banged into the hitch on my pickup many times, so now I leave it off out of self-preservation. I do, however have my towing bar on my Toad on all the time, but I DO worry that someone with walk into it like I have done several times. It really hurts!!!!

RE: Atwood Water Heater

You should be taking the plug out maybe 2 times a years to flush out the water heater. It will build up a lot of deposits. You can buy new plugs. When you do remove the plug, be sure that the heater is turned off, and don't relight until it refills. Also, this will give you a new "air gap" which you need so the overflow doesn't leak. Mine drips every time I turn it on to heat the water. I have just gotten used to it. You can also buy a rinser for your hose to help clean out the buildup of deposits.

RE: Flat towing 2014 Ford Taurus

Towing the FIT is the same. Turn engine off but leave steering wheel unlocked. That means you have to leave the key in the car. Don't forget to release the parking brake. The first time I towed the FIT, I drove 6 miles with the parking brake partially engaged. Asked wife if she released it as we were going down the freeway. She said "Didn't You?" Really hot brakes but no damage luckily. Be sure to turn radio off and the air conditioner or you will have a dead battery by the time you arrive at your destination.

RE: Digame' abt Towing pls

I made the mistake of going down the wrong road once, but it only took 5 minutes for us to unhook toad, turn around and re-hook up toad. Not too bad. Just be careful of where you turn off.

RE: Who pulls what toad behind their class C?

2012 Honda Fit Sport/Automatic Trans. I understand the new Fits cannot be towed 4 down if it is an Automatic. Something about the new type of transmission. I believe the Fit weighs just under 2500 pounds.

RE: RV Ovens, hate them, love them, or just meh?

I use an air-bake cookie tray over the burner. The Temps are usually perfect. I set the temp and time and ALWAYS comes out right. Without the cookie tray, everything burns.

RE: LP gas leak detector sounding alert.

Dropping an open bottle of wine right next to it will set it off.

RE: Anyone tow a 33ft bumper pull up Route 1 California coast

Our first motorhome trip in 2003 (26ft Class C/No toad) was from Half Moon Bay to South of San Simeon. I would never do that again. The DW kept telling me to "ride on the dots" as she was looking right over the edge for 60+ miles.
