RE: Fridge WOES......Again

Is it in a slide? Is the drain tube cracked? Has the drain tube been moved?

RE: Rand McNally RV GPS

I have two of them. I broke my first one but repaired it after buying a new one. I will not leave home without it. All of them have some warts but the benefits of hitting a couple of buttons and finding a truck stop along the way or rest stop is fantastic. I use the check list every time we leave a camp spot. Of course it is my own check list. They could improve the way it is edited but it works well. Using this GPS next to my smart phone with the Waze app makes things really relaxing. As we decide where we want to spend the night while traveling my wife does some research and then tells me the name of the campground she wants to go to. Using the simple features of the points of interest I can have it up and going in the gps in a matter of seconds. The height setting warnings is a great help. They could use a bit better graphics but for the price, they work very well. The Dock software on mine seems to work well. I update about every 6 months. As someone mentioned, having the digital speed showing as well as the speed limit and a warning if you go over by whatever you set it at is handy. I have had many many Garmins and all were great. Having this one that is built around rving is really a benefit.

RE: Mugged by California DMV?

I am a business owner from Calif. When Arnold was in office he doubled the DMV fees. This killed me since I owned a fleet of vehicles and new personal vehicles and an RV. The RV registration was $1800 a year. As a business owner and native Californian I left the pick pocket state and moved to Florida. My registration on the RV is now less than $90 a year. And I do not pay State income tax. When the State was making a higher profit than me on sales tax alone I just gave up,. Wow, when I have a senior moment it is a doozey. Sorry Arnold. I think my tongue was over my eye teeth and I couldn't see what I was talking about. Yes I do remember the Recall of Davis. Sorry folks. And to think I am a native Californian. Wow, when I have a senior moment it is a doozey. Sorry Arnold. I think my tongue was over my eye teeth and I couldn't see what I was talking about. Yes I do remember the Recall of Davis. Sorry folks. And to think I am a native Californian. I need to do better proof reading.

RE: Plug into 110 = no power plug into generator = power

Did you try running just the fan? Did you measure the voltage at the RV breaker panel? Measure it before turning on the fan portion. Then measure it while someone turns the AC portion on. I highly suspect the voltage will be low. Then go to the AC outlet you are plugging into and if it is a dual socket you can measure the voltage on the empty one while trying the test. If it does not have a second socket you can pull the plug out just slightly and measure. This seems to be a simple Ohms law issue. Too much resistance somewhere.

RE: Electrical problems

I would definitely install the new converter. It will be way smarter and help protect your battery. The old one could have been under or over charging and sent the battery to an early grave.

RE: Plug into 110 = no power plug into generator = power

Try running the AC fan only. If that works you know power is getting there. I would highly suspect there is just too much power loss in the extension cord.

RE: Refrigerator & water heaters

I would not leave the water heater on. The refer is fine but be sure the rv is level.

RE: Tires, Tires, Tires!

You have not mentioned make and model of RV and especially year. Tires age out. I just replace the four rear 22 inchers on my rv. They looked new as far as tread wear. My tire pressure monitor probably just save me from an expensive disaster a few days after having them replaced. One of the valve extenders developed a leak. Probably from me hitting it with the wheel buffer. My monitor beeped and showed the tire down to 85 lbs. It was an inside dual. With the extender off there have been no more problems.

RE: Peeling Clearcoat

My rattle can has held up quite well. My front cap was really bad so I had to sand through to the color. A local shop closely matches the color. Not perfect. I have since found a shop that should be able to match the brand and color codes. I cleared it after that. Nothing fantastic but since it is out of sight it is fine. I spent 4.5 months painting a small plane so I know how much it can take if done to show room quality.

RE: Calif. Coast Trip

Between Monterey and Santa Cruz on the coast is the very small town of "Moss Landing" with a great KOA campground--again small. You can literally walk to 3 great resturants- --Phil's is our favorite, ride bicycles, walk or ride to the beach and around the Marina. Very clean place and 1 of our favorite spots. Lars Double Dittos: The one resturant has amazing fresh seafood.

RE: RV tires best buy

I just had four rear tires replaced yesterday. Firestone FS591. 22.5 inch tires. The cost was a tad over 2K for the four of them. New valve stems, balanced etc. I kept the old ones for Craigs list. Tons of tread left and only 35K miles on them.

RE: Refilling Meds On The Road

Just a side note. I too take an opiod and it is a difficult problem. The new rules are really difficult to deal with. I guess it will take a congressman having to deal directly with the issue. My doctor has just given me two prescriptions to take on the road. They have notes to not fill before certain dates.

RE: 1987 RV Engine Won't Turn Off

Do you have daylight running lights? If so, pull that fuse first. It would be interesting if it was the same problem I had. I am a Senior Certified Electronic Technician so these things get my interest up. It can be a real bear chasing something like this down even with a decent schematic which probably does not exist. Once you find a fuse that cures the problem, then put it back in and keep pulling fuses to be sure there are no others contributing to the problem. As suggested, a screw wearing through a harness can be a monster to find.

RE: DirecTV on my old dish/LNB

Chuckbear is dead on. You probably don't have B-band converters but if you do, take them off. If you are using a DVR, you will need to program it to "one receiver", unless you have two outputs from the dish. A b-band receiver is a small rectangular box with short coax cables on each end and connect to the receivers. You will not get high definition channels so set up a new "favorites" list for the rv.

RE: 1987 RV Engine Won't Turn Off

As crazy as this sounds, start pulling fuses. I had a new Chevy Tahoe do that many years ago. It was the daylight running light fuse circuit. Somehow a diode had shorted and was back feeding the circuit.

RE: Current draw from refrigerator.

How are you charging the batteries? They may not be getting a full charge.

RE: Need Battery Help ASAP

You paralleled a dead battery with a charged battery. Bad idea. The charged battery tried to charge the dead battery. That wasted a ton of amp hours. We do NOT buy batteries. We rent them. If you have an RV battery that is 4 year or older why waste time wondering. That is past its useful life. YES< YES, I'm going to get a dozen people tell me they got 9 years on their batteries with no problems. I worked with batteries in public safety vehicle for over 40 years, owning a telecommunications company. I am a Senior Certified Electronic Tech. FCC licensed, Motorola Certified. Save time and misery. Replace old batteries, clean all connections shiny and new. Take care of them. Keep them charged and watered properly. If you have two 12 volt batteries now. I would replace them with two big 6 volters in series. Now go camping.

RE: Battery

Since you have power to run a charger, isn't there an onboard charger? I don't know what a 23B is so sorry for the ignorance. A trickle charge could take a couple of days to bring a battery up. You probably basically have a maintainer. Eventually it will catch up.

RE: Are Engine and House Batteries Connected?

If your engine battery was 6 volts or so and now a replacement shows 14 volts with the engine running, my vote is for a loose battery connection. It could be loose at the combiner solenoid or at the battery terminal. When you replaced the battery you tightened those connections but did you follow those heavy wires and tighten anywhere they are connected??? The boost switch, if connected to the engine battery, would not close due to low voltage. If you get into a situation like that again, you can often just use one jumper cable between the positives to get things going.
