RE: Parts Needed

Ebay is a great place to get any oddball RV parts. Lots of salvage, some new.

RE: Smog check - Where do you go?

Google is your friend on this one. Call around! Some places should be reasonable.

Just so you know, there is a small rebellion with MANY RV owners just installing regular fridges in their coaches. There are a lot of problems people have with RV fridges. The one listed in the OP is very common. Home refrigerators run at 34F in the fridge and 0F in the freezer. It's nice having real ice cream at camp, and not soup. :) We just inverter ours off 12V on the road.

RE: Light Switch

Grab a volt meter and check for continuity (Ohms) and see if the switch is working. Just put the two meter leads on each of the switch terminals and press the switch. If it changes the meter read, the switch is most likely good.

RE: Limitations to gas Class A

I have a 4 cylinder Class C, and it goes up the mountains... It even goes faster on the way down the mountains! My Class A bounder on the other hand, performs much like the 4 cylinder, it's slow going, but usually passes semis.

RE: Tire Minder vs TST tire pressure monitoring system?

What I do is I check my tire pressures before I leave for a trip. If it is a long distance, I'll check them again before I come back. So far so good. I try to make things "less complicated" if possible. In general, I've heard mixed reviews on pressure monitoring systems anyway. Some love them, while others think they are gimmicky.

RE: Vinegar or Baking soda

If your shower drains into the black tank, then you'll have soap in it to clean/soften. It does not have to be sterile of course.

RE: How many RV batteries is to much for a trip

If you are not using any 12v stuff, 1 should be good enough to keep everything in check with charging and converter.

RE: Current Status of Holiday Rambler

I have heard only good things about that brand. The warranties are rock solid!

RE: Switch to LED Tail Lights

One other thing that a lot of people don't think about.... It's small, but it adds up. LED's use considerably less power than standard 12V lights. With many class A RV's they have a ton of running lights amongst other lights. It can put a lot less stress on the alternator and/or more charge into your house batteries while driving. Many of us don't mind the power hogging nature of RV's, but they really are. Any steps that we can do to save power, better MPG's, and be more "green" are good things. LED's are the tip of the iceburg and not much, but it's a tiny step to making things better.

RE: tire rotation

I am interested in this thread because rotation is supposed to prolong the life of the tires. Why wouldn't a person rotate them?

RE: A toyota sienna toad

I have a Sienna (2003) and as far as I have researched, tow dolly was the only option. Flat had too many variables, such as if the pump and electrical concerns. Today I tow a standard Toyota Yaris flat and can't even feel it back there. No worries on that one. I'd call a toyota dealer and get more info.

RE: Sunova vs sightseer

Sometimes I wonder why RV manufacturers do this. Just make it the same way with different trim packages rather than calling it something else.

RE: Auxiliary air port

I have not seen many motor homes without them and agree with the tow truck operator.

RE: xantrex echo charge

It is good sense to keep all chargers away from water and ventilated.... this applies to almost every brand.

RE: Allegro Bus fog lights won't turn off

I've seen both with a toggle switch and headlight push switch. A friend of mine has a 1987 and it has a toggle switch.

RE: Wood stoves

It should not be hard given most RV walls are simple to go through with a saw for the pipe. Just be sure you follow rule #1 first - safety.

RE: onan 5500 generator

Well it's either a 1) Gas problem 2) Spark problem 3) Compression problem 4) Ground problem My hunch is it sounds like a fuel problem. Go with the obvious and work your way out.

RE: Battery/Alternator problem

If there are no buldges on the battery, I'd invest in a battery minder desulphation charger. Your battery sounds sulphated to me. Takes a charge and is weak/lathargic....

RE: Too big to travel? (45' X 101")

Everybody has their preference on what size coach they like. Personally I like to do more with less. Having 3 RV's, A bounder, a Toyota Class C, and a KZ, truly the Toyota Class C is the most simplistic and easy to get around in coach ever. There is not a whole lot of elbow room, but I can park it in 1 standard parking place. It makes driving it around a snap. Everything is there that we need, we just sometimes feel a tat more cramped. The bounder though is nice on those longer voyages. Easier to kick back, throw the feet out there and take it easy. But it requires a lot, and more white knuckles on mountains. The KZ is simple too, but still unfortunately takes the tow hitch and WD hitch. So the top of my list is the Toyota class C. Seriously, sometimes we just jump in it with the children, run to Costco, and go hang out at a state park without even camping. We can also easily bring it around town to soccer games and there is always the bathroom, A/C, eats, drinks, etc... Right from the soccer field parking lot. The OP obviously wants a extremely large coach, I say great! That kind of room comes at a price though. Besides the gas usage it would be the handling, manuvering, and parking. I'll zip right past him through a parking lot and do 3 circles around him - quick and nimble.... But then we get to camp..... And he looks over out his window while reclining watching us poor folks walking sideways out of our Toyota... :) Every coach comes with a price, pros, and cons. But yeah, NEVER have seen a cop with a ruler out checking coach width.
