RE: Negotiating RV Price

I pin dealers up to dealers. "They will sell me it for X". Do it over email even. Take the best price and don't let them complicate it.

RE: 1st trip in the "new" RV

Let us know how it turned out.

RE: buying a fifth wheel

Beware the weight gestapo out there. X2. You can do this with a large gasser to the dismay of many. Many will jump on you saying Diesel only.

RE: Refrigerator Settings

Yes, 30A is enough to run 2 RV fridges (based on every RV fridge I've ever seen).

RE: Tire Pressure Monitor Systems

I like TPMS and have used them in times past. I don't anymore, not because they are bad, but because there are so many complications to the RV anyway. Here's what I do. Before I trip I check my pressures. If it is a 2-3 day trip, I do it once. That's it. If it is a long cross country trip, I check them before I go. Then after my destination is reached, I check them before I come back. I have a 12V tire pump to add pressure if needed. I do think it's a good method.

RE: When to change Allison Transmission oil

Modern trans oils last a LOT longer than years past. If it is in your 2002 you may want to have that checked out. Many modern vehicles (like Toyotas) have sealed transmissions even because the oil is so good.

RE: no 12v in the coach

Lots of great suggestions here. When you say no 12V is there ANY voltage and just not 12V? Have you tested the batts?

RE: quick question

Yes it happens depending on you coach. My coaches, they give me a discount. No seriously though, I have heard people say things like "quote based on their shoes".

RE: Best place to buy Michelin's in AZ

X2 Discount tire usually has very good deals, but you can also buy online from tirerack and have them shipped.

RE: Always go prepared...

We've been RV camping for almost 15 years, but I learned a valuable lesson last week that I wanted to pass on. The lesson is always go prepared. I always bring a cordless drill with me when camping and almost always bring my 201 piece mechanics tool set. We had a 5 day trip planned, but we were really busy the days leading up to our departure. I decided not to bring the tool set. Unfortunately, that was a mistake. When I emptied the hot water heater last, I did not fully tighten the drain plug (we have a Suburban, so no Anode Rod). Sure enough, it leaked from the drain plug. I didn't notice it right away and had a nice size puddle under the camper. The campground was pretty quiet, so not really anyone to ask if they had a wrench and I could never pin down the host (we were out of the campground each day). I was able to hand tighten it to keep the water from really leaking, but never got it tight enough. I did have a gallon bucket to catch the leaking water when we needed the hot water heater. I left the hot water heater in bypass most of the time to keep it from getting pressurized. The only time it leaked a lot was when there was pressure in the tank. Once the pressure was relieved, it only dripped every so often. Like the drill, I will always bring my tool set, even when in a hurry. -Michael Yes and DUAL purpose things. Trash cans can act as buckets. Get creative!

RE: Vented Gas Cap?

Well the easy thing to do is leave it on real loose and see if it cuts off. I don't have the direct answer to your question though.

RE: Luxury vs. Mid-level Pushers

To be honest I haven't really seen "entry level DP's". Most DP's are pretty nice. There is luxury and not luxury. You can usually tell by the faucets and cabinets.... I have not seen any real "junkers" though. Typically the higher price brings up the quality. Tiffin is a great brand just to name one.

RE: surge protector????

looked at the Surge Guard on amazon I will spend some money but not sure I am down with a $350 surge protector. They do have the non lcd version for $96 I'd go non LCD. No point in $350 for the same job.

RE: Norcold refrigerator issue

Is the click more like a fan hitting something or a relay toggling back and forth?
crasster 03/23/17 07:29am Tech Issues

Sometimes dings in paint can allow water to penetrate and get under the coat of paint. Can you chip all off, wire wheel, and spray paint to seal?

RE: Inverter generator without 30 amp outlet

Be sure if you use any extension cords not to draw more amps on the cord than they can handle. Just a "tip". if you RV has 20AMP out that is pretty considerable. Many extension cords can only handle 12-15amps. I've also seen some genny breakers not trip until 22-23 amps when rated at 20. But yes OP, adapter will get you going.

RE: Trading in

I agree. Sell it outright. Get your $ rather than ripped off by a dealer.

RE: Wheel Chocks with levelers on double axel travel trailer

Yes, definitely get these if you are going to be camping anywhere with any type of moderate grade. I would go with the real deal tandem over wedges.

RE: Why do Class C's always leak in the front upper bunk area?

Yes, they are notorious for front bunk leaks. Many MFG's even quit putting windows on the bunk area, but still, they can tend to leak. The best think IMHO to do with a C if you like them is to keep them in covered storage and so that it won't be victimized by the elements all the time. Does it stop leaks? No, but water won't get in it if it's covered under storage. It's a great way to "stop leaks" and preserve the coach.

RE: Domestic thermostat problems

Okay a couple other questions, are you plugged into power and are all of your breakers switched to power on?
