RE: Proper placement of full width mudflap

We have read repeatedly that the correct placement is 6" off the ground, in order to avoid the above problems. Who knows though. Could be just an old wives tale from the road. X2, I've heard this too, but have absolutely no idea if this is just tales or legit.

RE: Seatbelt extenders

Any Ford dealer should be able to give you some free ones. I've never heard of a dealership charging for them.

RE: Sloppy steering

How is the alignment? Is it steering evenly when you steer to the extremes in both directions.

RE: Seat Belt Locked Up

Try to get the seat belt roller cover off and manually roll it backwards. It's probably twisted locking it up. It's "common" enough that this happens.

RE: Steps stopped working

Check power, wires, switches, and breakers. Start with power to the motor and somebody triggering the switch on and off.

RE: Reimbursed for traveling to manufacturer?

There may be some of the elite manufacturers that will, especially if they think you'll smear their reputation. The rest are in the sludge category and you just have to deal with it because.... what choice do you have?

RE: Converter bad

Check all outlets, breakers, and wiring. Also look for any shorts between shore power & converter.

RE: RV Stolen Yesterday

:( I hope you had insurance. If you did try to remember everything you had in the coach. Hopefully it will all work out for the better for you. Feel very bad for your dog too. Nothing will replace the dog but I've found happiness in another dog in similar situations.

RE: Washer/Dryer running while travelling??

I would not do it. The units are too expensive to risk it. But if I stop for a couple hours at a side tracked destination I would. :)

RE: genset bogs down under load

I always, always, ALWAYS start with trying a bit of Marvel Mystery oil in the fuel and oil. It is an excellent cleaner, excellent tool to remove gunk out of carbs (yes even the teeny holes) and also helps lubricate and clean the upper cylinder & valves. I've seen this stuff help engines that are seized function again. Basically, I see it as "top of the line transmission fluid" with super heavy cleaners. I've used in go-karts, mowers, tractors, tillers, weed trimmers, vehicles, to remove rust, oil door hinges... The uses are vast. It also cleans fuel injection systems out and lubricates parts in fuel pumps.

RE: 1995 Bounder and What to offer on it

I don't think you'll "offend" but it is really a bit less. I would NOT start at an even number though, it's too round. I'd start at $8150. It's sometimes if you say "I'll give you eight thousand" it's a short word and sounds much smaller when one pictures it. I would say "I'll give you eight thousand one hundred and fifty dollars". I would go to $9500.

RE: My Tub Issue Rides again!

Ok, I'll just tell you what I would do and it's not the "exact perfect way" but I think it would really work. I'd go buy several rubber shims or PVC shims. I'd stick SEVERAL under it in multiple places. Get a solid foundation of support. Then I would buy the expanding foam "great stuff" and spray it in all the nooks and crannies (avoiding drains and cracks). The foam expands well and is fairly solid. It may back up the shims for support especially with the expansion. Think of it like a solid platform of hard foam with many heavy supports through it (shims). Anyway, that's what I would do. Unless you can find a very solid thick piece of rubber and cram it there underneath. Anyway, THINK SUPPORT.

RE: Claas A/ Class C

I have experience with both. C much more simple to drive. (not often as much tow power) A harder to drive but can usually tow a toad. Both self contained. A typically will have bigger tanks and better for boondocking. Travel Trailer you typically tow with a get into town vehicle, but not as self contained. Best one of the bunch IMHO is C's for 1 week camping trips, A's for voyages across the country where you want a toad. I also think small fiberglass TT's are great for 60 somethings just starting retirement that want to tour the country and have decent health to setup. (Think Casita) A's are better for easier setup, as are C's.

RE: Vanity light keeps burning out

I have a 2016 Newmar Ventana the 3 light vanity light in the back bathroom keeps burning out, The bulbs are not replaceable and Newmar is now replacing the fixture for the third time. Is anyone else having the same problem? Newmar states no other part is available. Help my warranty is about to run out. I have checked online and found nothing to fit. Creating a non-compatible replace component like a light bulb just sounds COLD. Gives them a total monopoly on parts. I would either have them replace it with one that IS compatible with regular bulbs, or I would visit Home Depot and buy a fixture that is.

RE: Norcold 1200 throws GFCI when starting

Turned on the fridge for the 1st time this season, and it keeps popping the GFCI. All the electrical wiring and plugs seem good on the circuit, runs on LP but throws reset on AC. Could there be a problem with control board. Any help appreciated. Don Could be a weak GFCI. I'd test it with several power tools, such as a drill, circular saw, and also perhaps a space heater. If GFCI trips, faulty plug.

RE: 2008 Itasca Suncruiser Paint Failing

This really makes me hope that airstream will come out with a class A coach. :) Stainless is great.

RE: Mice in July !

I'm not suggesting you do this but peanut butter and golden malrin (fly bait) typically will wipe out mice or anything else that eats it. Anybody who tries this needs to be very careful to keep pets away. Most people report it works better than any rat/mouse poison.

RE: Shower head hanger

Why not just replace it with a new shower head assembly, sold at any Lowe's or Home Depot, and even WallMart? Get one that has the attached hose and shower head, or just get one with a new hose. If it comes with a hose, it will have the holder for it too. Simple to replace. You may never find an exact match unless you purchase the entire thing, as you've said, and you'll probably pay much more through your dealership than a big box store. Besides, it's a great opportunity to get a beefier shower head; maybe one with different sprayer functions by rotating the dial on the front. $12.96 for this one, similar to what is stock in most campers. Click here. X2. I never try to replace with anything stock RV. Lowes/HD will always have better quality.

RE: Residential fridge - temp variation fridge, freezer OK

Sounds like a thermometer, thermostat, or circulation issue. It's got to be one of the three. Also is there any melted "junk" on the vents going between the fridge and freezer?

RE: TV Cabnet

I'd just go by a local cabinet shop. You never know they may just have the perfect thing sitting there not knowing what to do with it. They'll most likely have solutions for you.
