RE: Whole house pressure regulator

If you're going to install a Watts regulator, they sell them at HD. Tell the HD apron what you want to do and he/she will hook you up. If they give you the deer in the headlights look, ask for a mgr. They will get you the right person and parts. That said, I attach mine to the spigot, then run a short hose whole house filter attaching with a quick coupler. From the WHF the hose runs to the water softener and on into the coach. Again with quick couplers. If you need the EXACT fittings and numbers let me know and I'll look them up for you.....Dennis

RE: portable water softener

We have used one for 7 years and wouldn't be without one. It's nice to wash the coach with soft water...think no spotting....showers feel better, coffee tastes better. Arizona has water that's nearly as hard as New Mexico's. Not quite, but close.....Dennis

RE: Weep Hole Covers

I can't imagine a mfg, even Tiffin making their OWN windows. They should either be SEGI or Atwood. I would call Bob and ask where to get the covers. Obviously whatever they used to secure them isn't working, at least in your case....Dennis

RE: Geico Claim AFTER blowout

I'm sorry to hear of the frustration you had in settling your claim and fixing your motorhome after a tire blowout. Three years ago a tire separated on our fifth wheel and in the process it damaged the tire in front of it, the side wall, nearly took out the steps and took out the fender too. We have Allstate and GS Platinum Roadside Service. We called GS. They came out within the hour and the tech put on our spare. We turned around and went back home, emptied out the fifth wheel fridge and cupboards of all food, straight to Les Schwab who replaced all the tires and spare, then over to the dealership we bought our FW from. They called our insurance company and took care of fixing everything. A month later we had our FW back and the claim all settled smoothly. The Allstate rep kept in touch with us on level of service, etc. We were extremely pleased. Awesome story. Glad it worked well in your favor. Unfortunately, Allstate does not offer full timers insurance. We'll see how this goes with Geico. They're saying the 'valve' failure was not caused by the blowout. I will research further once I get the moho and the failed part back from the dealer....Dennis

RE: Weep Hole Covers

I bought replacements off Ebay. They are Atwood covers and they simply snap into place. The weather will eventually cause them to become brittle and fall off. Buy some extras..they are LEFT AND RIGHT specific.....Dennis Atwood weep hole covers

RE: Insurance increase for going full-time RVing

Full timers insurance carries liability coverage. I don't believe AAA offers true full timer insurance. Check the verbiage very very carefully. Know what you're paying for and that it is adequate should you need it. When you need it, if you don't have it, it's too late. Just sayin....Dennis

RE: Need Toad(TV).Options:Rolls Royce Ghost,Smart Fortwo,Fiat500

We pull an electric smart for two on a single axle trailer. For me it would be a toss up between the Rolls and the smart. :) the smartfor2 car has been put in the top ten worst vehicle ratings according to the 2015 consumer report that is It's also been discontinued so parts may become an issue as well...Dennis To the OP: We tow an Equinox. If you consider one of those, make sure you get the 6cyl. not the 4. The 6 has hydraulic steering, the 4 has electronic. You want the hydraulic...D

Full timing-hmmmm We get to see things in this great country, most people never get to see. We've traveled back and forth across this great nation many times using all back roads when possible. Lots of little towns, friendly people and wonderful sights, smells and sounds. I home schooled my kids too. (thanks internet) Now our grandkids love to travel with us during their summer vacations. We get to connect with them and they get to see/do things they'd never be able to. At 17, they've been to 45 States and enjoyed every minute of it. We usually let them choose what they would like to do. i.e. they wanted to swim in all the Great Lakes, so one met us in Memphis, the other in Chicago and we did the circle tour. They just might not have a 'bucket list' when they get old...:) The big difference is if we don't like our neighbors, weather, whatever, we simply turn the key. We had 129,000 miles on our Dynasty and already we are at 95,000 on the Executive. Big wheels-turning-movin'on.....Dennis

RE: PPL Texas customers

The interesting thing about PPL is they have overnight accommodations. We bought our first DP from them years ago. They negotiated with the seller and continued doing so for a couple small repairs that needed to be done. We then stayed in their campground for three nights to ensure everything was good to go. After replacing the batteries, we headed out and didn't have any issues. Over all it was an excellent experience....Dennis

RE: flexvision tv password

It appears the previous owner password protected the TV for teens. "1111" is the default password. If that doesn't work, you'll have to reset the TV to factory specs which should override whatever password they put in. Then 1-1-1-1 should work. Good luck...Dennis

RE: Nevada Hwy. #93

Rooster - We went that way - ONCE. It's a lot of nothing with nothing in between. There's a Love's station in Ely but not much after that. It's only about 100 miles to Pioche. Are you planning on staying in Pioche? We didn't find a cg anywhere in that area that we would stay at...the road is good though....Dennis

RE: What's your Suggested yearly Maintenance/Repair fund/budget?

I budget $500/mo...$300 for yearly oil change, fuel filters, lube etc. Anywhere from $1k to 3K/yr for "incidentals". (Tires, 8 - good for 7 years. 8X$700=$5600/7=$800/yr.) (Batteries -8 (2 12VDC 6 6VDC) good for 5 yrs. 2X200=$400/5=$80/yr, 6X90=$540/5=$108) You get the idea.......Dennis

RE: 2002 Tiffin Zephyr

Take a picture of the unit and post it. Sounds like it was an aftermarket install, so it could be anything...Most popular units are Red Devil and Yellow Jacket.....Dennis

RE: XtraRidd Service Contract

Dennis, I am glad you have been happy with your extended warranty plans. However, I will tell you the damage from the lightening strike and the tire blow out would have been covered by your comprehensive insurance on your RV, so that just leaves the A/C unit that was covered by that "warranty." How much did you pay for the warranty, and how much did it cost to replace. I bet you lost money. If everyone received more in repair costs than they paid for an extended warranty, those companies would go bust. The odds are not in anyone's favor, just like a casino. Some of the damage was NOT covered by comprehensive. I tried to deal with both companies as I was hoping one would pay the deductible. Nope, comp wouldn't cover 'acts of God'. Anyway, I also had the rear end drop a cog on the diff. XtraRide covered it with no questions asked. That alone was over $4k. You would have lost your bet...:W....Dennis

RE: XtraRidd Service Contract

I had a 2 yr contract from Xtraride on my Exec when I bought it. It paid for itself in that time period. When it expired, I bought a 4 yr contract from Wholesale Warranties. It was well worth the money, if for no other reason but for peace of mind. That said, Xtraride is a dealer ONLY item. You won't be able to purchase a contract directly thru them any longer. I used it when I had a lightning strike near my coach. Took out the middle A/C unit, an air pump, the transfer switch, microwave etc. They were terrific and worked hand in hand with Monaco for the repair. You'll get some on here that will tell you it's a waste of money, put the money in a separate savings acct, yada yada yada. I had a blowout in Florida and the warranty covered the cost completely including the new tire. They also replaced my A/C unit when we were in Cape Canaveral. Done at the campground. Again, for peace of mind if you can't, or don't want to do any of the repairs yourself, it's money well spent....Dennis

RE: Anyone ever drive off with a slide out left out?

Not by choice, but when we had our blowout earlier this year, we had to drive about 100 miles to a repair shop to get the hydraulic line fixed so it would retract. Fortunately it had extended only about 10" or so....Dennis https://i.imgur.com/QCDtypyl.jpg

RE: Aqua Hot

The Aqua Hot is a pretty simple unit. BTW, that is NOT antifreeze, it's boiler fluid. Do NOT refill your reservoir with antifreeze. Anyway, the boiler fires and heats the fluid which in turn gives you heat inside your unit. Each one of those fans are separate from each other. Check to ensure each fan unit is functioning properly and getting fluid thru them. If it's an air lock, they should be able to easily bleed the system if they know what they're doing. Be sure, while they have it, that they service the nozzle assembly and also check the fuel pump pressure. You said they've only had it since Monday. I think two weeks is a dealer minimum to keep your coach regardless of the 'fix'...:)....Dennis

RE: Changing tire size on class A

You guys do know I'm a sensitive guy right? :B I was just asking, as the OP didn't mention cost as a factor, only size. It didn't seem prudent to change tire size just because, so I was asking if there was some advantage that I failed to see. Cost I understand....Dennis
