RE: Thor Tuscany Motorhome's Aqua-hot,do you want that in an RV?

Once he has it, he'll never buy another coach without it. Endless hot water. It will heat your coach also. Maintenance is recommended once a year. I do mine every other year. Maintenance consists of replacing the nozzle assembly, checking the fuel pressure and general clean up. The diesel burner can get dirty. Easiest way to check if it needs maintenance is by smell. If there's smoke or a strong diesel smell while it's running, it needs attention. Most units have an electric switch. While on electric, you won't get anywhere near the recovery time as you do with the diesel burner. I leave my electric on so I have hot water for dishes etc. We turn the diesel on when showering or doing the laundry.....Dennis

RE: Complaint about a dealer

I can understand some of the frustration but not all.. In retrospect in reading my own post and having time to do some reflection during my writing sessions, I think my frustration is multi-parted in that: 1) we traded a perfectly working coach. But, an OLDER coach. There's a REASON why YOU traded. 2) we had many issues that we did not expect with this new (to us) coach. It's a REPO..NOT a NEW coach. Expect issues with any coach. Your expectations were too high. 3) The way we were treated for the work that was done, that I feel should have been taken care of before we even received the coach was unprofessional and not called for. Cleanliness varies. What's clean to others may not be clean to you. 4) It seems at every turn, something is going wrong with this coach giving us the feeling of owning a lemon. I know they require maintenance but we didn't experience this many issues with our Damon. Bad Kharma..the more you resent the Fleetwood, the more 'issues' will bother you. Time to accept the new (to you) coach. 5) My anger towards my RV Dealer is directly related to two things a) their promise to deliver a 'like new' coach was not fulfilled 'Like new' to you differs from what 'like new' is to the dealer. and b) after telling me to log the issues and that they would take care of them (which they did) but then to turn around and bill me for it, then rescind the bill only after complaining about getting the bill in the first place and then give me a lecture via email on what is and is not covered in a warranty and what my expectations of the warranty is. Sounds like "assuming" took place on both sides. I do feel your pain. However, I can also see the dealer's side of things. I'm trying to see both sides here. Maybe if you look at this from the dealer's perspective it will help contain some of your irritation. You bought the coach used, (don't know if you got a 'killer' deal) and expected a 'like new' coach. Like new is not 'perfect'. You turned in a list to the dealer asking them to fix those items. Probably irritated the tech by asking them to fix a burned out lightbulb, but they fixed your list and billed you for the repairs. Remember, different individuals doing different things within the company. (Lack of communication between billing clerk, service mgr and owner) Sounds like owner cleared that up but wasn't going to continue giving you a blank check for future repairs. The warranty you received specifies what needs to be done in the event of a failure. You didn't follow protocol. They, most likely have some of the parts you need in their facility. Maybe from a previous fix. IMHO, you've got to give them the opportunity to fix your issue. The only other solution is to write them off and move on. You'll get nothing from any government agency. The dealer will show they acted in good faith by completing your previous repairs and eating the cost of those repairs. If you want the dealer to fix your issue under their warranty, you'll have to take it back to them. Otherwise it's on your nickel......Dennis

RE: NewBie with a 12 VDC hose power question

A couple thoughts...there should be only one switch for the batteries. So, the next step should be with a 12VDC meter. You replaced the batteries, so start there. 1. Are the batteries hooked up right? Are they fully charged? 2. Is there an inline fuse running from the battery bank? Is it good? 3. Do you have power at the disconnect switch? 4. Do you have power at the front side of the solenoid? Back side? 5. Does your unit have one of the Big Boy solenoids? Let us know what you discover after these tests...often it's easier just to go back to the dealer and have them redo the walk thru. I recommend videotaping the walk thru so you can review it for things you missed....Dennis

RE: Camping Tunica, Ms. What a difference a YEAR makes....SAD !

Dennis, where did you end up staying? We had heard that Harrah's closed and it is sad. Be safe out there! MM. Mark, we went down to Isle of Capri. It's just a parking lot but it has full hookups incl sewer, areas to walk your (fufu)dog, pool and spa...all for only $8.15/night including taxes....not bad..we stayed four nights there. Not too many gamblers in the casino. I think the Harrahs property has value but IMHO the other casinos have to join and form a consortium of sorts and build a theme park like a 6 flags, waterpark, maybe a riverwalk venue with water taxis to all the casinos on the river and some decent shopping to draw the people back in. Right now all they have is Memphis. Helena Arkansas is almost all government sponsored housing. The entire downtown is boarded up and it looks like downtown Detroit. Without federal checks coming in, that place would become a ghost town overnight....headed west and warmer weather.....:).....Dennis

Camping Tunica, Ms. What a difference a YEAR makes....SAD !

As many of you know, our oldest grandkids like to spend their summer vacations traveling with us. Last year they flew into Memphis because they wanted to see Graceland and all things Elvis. Anyway, we had booked a two week stay at Harrahs in Tunica at their Mid-South Campground. Beautiful campground right next to the Mississippi River. Here's a couple pictures of the campground from our site: http://i62.tinypic.com/2s9vl9k.jpg width=400 http://i62.tinypic.com/okacuf.jpg width=400 This year we thought about going back as we headed towards the West Coast and found that tough times have hit the casino market in this area. Harrahs closed it's doors for good on June 2, 2014 and abandoned all three hotels, the casino, the golf course and the RV Park. Here's what it looks like today: http://i57.tinypic.com/30dgtp2.jpg width=400 http://i62.tinypic.com/2gvvcw6.jpg width=400 Mother Nature is reclaiming all that land. Kudzu, the weed that's swallowing the South, is waiting in the wings......pretty sad......Dennis

RE: refrigerator fan / led lite combination

I got mine for about $15. Unless you're hung up on the LEDs, I wouldn't spend $90. It works great. Clips to the fins, powered by the fridge light. No icing. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dometic-Norcold-Custom-Fan-w-ON-OFF-switch-to-INCREASE-cooling-std-w-grill-/370910258215?pt=Motors_RV_Trailer_Camper_Parts_Accessories&hash=item565bf96427&vxp=mtr The seller is the same as the RV Cooling Warehouse...the folks who market the Amish cooling unit. dforce, the seller, is David Force..that was the unit we had until I dumped the Norcold...worked well...Dennis

RE: Dropbox, Pros and Cons

Dropbox is good if you have a pdf file or some other type of file you want to share with others. PDF files cannot be posted on a forum like this, so dropbox fills this void. Putting private information or photos you don't want to share on the internet is, IMHO, pretty dumb.....Dennis

RE: Are Most Class A Motorhome Owners Hermits?

Bruce, When I "camp" I am usually in Mode 1 or Mode 2. Mode 1: Me and 2 other buddies with 3 Class A's roll into camp, unload 1 or 2 golf carts, set up at least 2 TV's (one for the games and one for qualifying), set up the music and swimming pool and about 8-10 of us commence to party. Mode 2: I just drove 725 miles after 6 days of Mode 1 so I just pull into my spot and go to sleep. (no fufu dog to walk). Usually gone before you wake up and do another 400 miles home. So which one of me do you want to be "camped" by? :B THAT must be that passive/aggressive behavior, Nomad was talking about.....:W...Dennis

RE: Tire Inflation Question

Just a word of caution about lowering air pressure... Check the DISTANCE between the rear duals before letting too much air out. As they flex you don't want them rubbing or you'll surely be sitting by the side of the road, or worse, in a very short time......Dennis

RE: 3rd time to the repair shop for our Endeavor

Just talked to my husband, it's now not leaking. *throws hands up in the air* I guess that's a good thing, though lol they can't get us in till tomorrow, so maybe we can figure out what's going on before then. I'm learning a lot, he already knew about the brakes and how important the pressure is. Glad to hear your taking the proper precautions....:) If you want to educate yourself about your air system, click on the link below. Lots of good information. When was the last time you purged your air tanks? Specifically the front one, if that's where you suspect the air was leaking. Mine is inside the generator compartment on the right side. Call Monaco if you don't know where it is on your coach. Perhaps this valve is not closed completely. Worth a quick check.....Dennis Air system info for Motor Coaches

RE: 3rd time to the repair shop for our Endeavor

1. Where are you? 2. Air up the coach fully, then turn it off and watch your gauges. Time how long it takes for the air to bleed down from 110psi to about 60psi. Do you know how AIR BRAKES work? I'm guessing here that you have limited knowledge of your air system. I'll hit one fairly significant issue you may not be aware of. THIS IS A WARNING ! PLEASE READ BEFORE DRIVING YOUR COACH ! Your air brakes depend on air to work, unlike a car that uses fluid. Normal air pressure in your system is 110-120psi. When that air pressure drops to about 60-65psi, your system will sound an alarm. If that happens, STOP asap !!! When the air pressure drops to 20-45psi your EMERGENCY brakes will apply. Low pressure releases a powerful spring which applies the brakes. If you are MOVING when this happens, you could lose control of the coach and CRASH ! That semi following behind you could climb inside your coach if you suddenly stop in front of him too.! Either way, it's a dangerous situation. Again, a small air leak should be checked immediately but the coach can be driven a short distance. A LARGE leak, such as you described, is dangerous and should be fixed before the coach is driven.....Dennis

RE: Tire Inflation Question

Saying you don't have access to a scale is a cop out. Any truck stop, Flying J/Pilot/Loves/TA have scales. Get your coach weighed and inflate your tires according to the table specs. Michelin and Goodyear have tables posted on their websites. Lots of reasons to maintain the correct tire pressure...Dennis
