RE: RV's that are Lemons

Just a thought...I would consider a higher end DP that is a repo., then do your due diligence as far a inspections. For added protection, consider purchasing an extended warranty for items you may have missed. Figure about $4k for the EW/4 yr coverage. Any issues will pop up within that time period. After that, put your money in a separate maintenance slush account....Our coach was a year old, a repo and we saved over 50% on it.....Dennis

RE: mouse in the house

Funny but true story. This past year a mouse got in our coach and started 'exploring'. He nibble off the top of a bottle of apple cider vinegar and slipped inside. I asked DW why she stored the bottle without a lid and found the little bugger inside the bottle. Pickled and dead....Dennis

RE: Jake Brake / Pac brake question

My Dynasty had an exhaust brake. Changed the factory one out to the PacBrake PRXB. World of difference. Much better braking power. The Executive has a two stage engine brake. Better holding power than the PacBrake. A Jake Brake modifies the timing on the exhaust valves so that, when braking is needed, the exhaust valves open right as the piston reaches the top of the compression stroke. The energy gathered in the compressed air is released, so the compression stroke actually provides the braking power. Low position opens three valves, High position opens all six. As for telling from the cockpit; generally speaking, an exhaust brake will simply have an on/off switch on the console. An engine brake will have a 2 or 3 position switch in a similar place. Some models also have a floor mounted pedal to activate either one. Most higher end Monacos do. Hope this helps...Dennis

RE: Black Tank Odor

....I'm thinking about getting a shop vac on the roof and try and blow air down the vent pipe..... Make sure you are hooked to a sewer and the valve is open! Make sure the shop vac hose is on exhaust and not vacuum..!..:E:E:E....Dennis

RE: Toad &a brake assist

Also, it doesn't matter what your home State's laws are relative to safety issues. If you travel in a state that requires it, you must have it or subject yourself to enforcement. Most States require it if your towed weighs over 1500 pounds...regardless of the law and the hassle, it makes you safer on the road, for yourself and those who share the road with you.....Dennis

RE: overheating 1993 Wannabago brave 27

Try 'burping' it... Most likely your "issue" is a water bubble in the radiator....Dennis Get yourself a Lisle 24680 funnel kit. About $30 at your local auto parts store. You'll save yourself lots of headaches. You'll thank me later.....D

RE: 2010 Fleetwood Discovery 40G Battery Connnections

Hi, Having some electrical issues and think that it may be due to the 6V battery connnection. Can someone who has a 2010 Fleetwood Discovery 40G post or e-mail a pic of your 6V battery compartment and terminal connections? Either the four 6 volt batteries are connected in correctly or the inverter has a problem. I tried to start the engine and the two 12 volt start batteries were dead. Tested both starter batteries, they read 10.7 amps. Hooked up my charger, hit the start assist button, and the engine started. I went ahead and replaced the batteries, reconnected everything and now the inverter display reads HI DC 19.4 I also noticed that now the microwave display was not on and the 120v outlets are not working. Checked the breaker box and nothing thrown. Also checked fuses and all good there. Checked the GFI plugs and could not find one that popped? The next step is taking it to the Dealer @ $140 per hour labor rate. Your post is a little confusing, so let's try to clean it up. Which batteries did you replace? The two 12VDC batteries, the four 6VDC batteries or all six? I read it as you replaced the four 6VDC batteries. Assuming that, I can also assume you did not take a picture of the wiring before disconnecting them. Common mistake but can be a costly one. Assuming you do not have a picture, I've attached a picture of my battery bank for you. See below. Basically: Positive supply line goes to the positive post on battery one; Negative supply line goes to the negative post on battery four; Jumpers are then connected to the positive posts on batteries, one and three; Jumpers are connected to the negative posts on batteries, four and two; Finally jumpers connect battery one's NEGATIVE post to battery two's POSITIVE post and battery three's NEGATIVE post to battery four's POSITIVE post. Hope this helps. Post back once you've verified the batteries are correctly wired.....Dennis http://i.imgur.com/PAm3lA2l.jpg http://i.imgur.com/Rna8iC5l.jpg

RE: Tires

If you were pleased with the Michelins, why would you look for a lesser brand? $4000 comes out to about $40 month for quality you know is good... so, you buy the "other, unknown to you" brand and save what? $5/month. Go with the Michelins from FMCA.....Dennis

RE: Urgent: Need Tire Advice Class A Diesel

How about just replacing the steer tires until you get home? Then if you don't like the GY's you won't take as much of a beating if you decide to replace them.I agree with this post! I drove OTR for over 44 years before retiring and I very rarely did I mix tire brands only to limp home on! I assume you mean mixing tire brands on the same axle/dual. I've run Michelin's on my steer and Goodyear's on the tag/rear duals for years. GY does not make a 315 tire, Michelin does.....Dennis

RE: Grand Teton National Park

Thanks again for all the info. Gros Ventre sounds like a good choice. We haven't made a firm itinerary yet, but I'm hoping to do so this weekend. Being retired is tiring....:B..especially with a now 2 month old granddaughter...:W:W...Dennis

RE: Grand Teton National Park

Thanks, everyone for the quick replies. We stayed at Grizzly when we visited Yellowstone but never got down to the Tetons which is why we're looking at them this year. Traveling thru Yellowstone to Jackson seemed like a long trip but we were focused on Yellowstone so I didn't pay much attention to any of the mileage. We only had two weeks at Yellowstone and spent every bit of that time hiking, riding and taking pics of the animals. Beautiful place. Thanks again and I certainly appreciate any updates on the fire situation. Fire, and the accompanying smoke are really bad, no matter where it's at.....Dennis

RE: RVing in Deep South

Slides out, they are designed to keep the water out. We got 28" in one night while in Gulf Shores. Flooded but didn't have any real issues. Only caution I would give is if you don't intend to move your rig for a few weeks, make sure the brake pads don't get stuck to the rotors. As for the toppers, the only time I lost mine, and I lost all four was when a tornado passed over us in Matagordo Texas. I was fortunate as my neighbor's fiver was picked up and deposited on the grass next to his pad. Another 30' fiver flipped four times injuring all three inside.....be safe....Dennis

Thinking about the above mid to late September. Looking for full hookups and maybe a weeks stay. We'll use the toad for sightseeing but need a base camp. Suggestions? We will be coming up from Alpine....Thanks....Dennis
