RE: refrigerator not working

If you can't figure it out, go camp a night in a good campground. Early in the morning open all the hatches, spread your tools around in sight and an old guy will come by and ask you whats up. He will get you dialed in. LOL, this is seriously the post of the year. Sounds like the batts are not juicing it up and the igniter is coming on. How is all the voltage & charge?

RE: 1994 Damon Ultrasport Class C - Battery won't charge

Follow the wires from the batteries to the converter if you can. It may be a challenge but a well engineered coach should not put the converter far from the batteries because of the long resistance from cable runs. If you are able to follow the wires you should find it. Near fuse panels, under table seats, are obvious places. Also look for a "mysterious vent panel" because converters most often have cooling fans.

RE: Norcold 1200 RIM

The thing is if this is a bad control unit, those are fairly expensive especially including labor. For the OP I would totally go through everything, make sure to blow out any dust, look for bad fuses and overall go over it with common sense. Look at components for anything burned up (electronics). For me after being through MORE expensive fridge repairs on my 3 coaches, I decided to just start replacing them with $150 fridges from Walmart. When it came time to do one in the bounder, the replacement was a $100 full size from Craiglist. Ice cream is always frozen. It is also possible to freeze huge ice blocks for going down the road to keep the fridge cool. It also works for boondocking.

RE: Slid out "out" permanently?

Surround it with a built structure/roof. If you want to use the windows get a carport on top that "lips" out down, like a roof eve, but does not cover the windows. This is for added protection. Put cinder blocks under the RV in multiple spots (frame) and level it out. I would get it off the tires for sure.

RE: Slide out ran itself out

I'd check the switch first. X2, I was thinking shorting switch or shorting wires that activated it.

RE: 2007 Daymon Daybreak

To remove rust you have to scrape it or wire wheel it off and buff. The thing is that depending on how rusty and surrounding materials changing how to remove it. For the gravel you can use white rock gravel. Do not use pea gravel. Something more robust is good, but I would suggest a compactor if you can use one. Steam cleaners will work fine for the shades.

RE: Quick connect LP fittings

Yes you can. Especially be certain to use a sealer that is for gas. Be especially careful changing propane fittings for leaks. You can use standard liquid dish soap and water, or what works really great is children's blowing bubbles.

RE: Extended Warranties

I've never bought one on any of my 3 RV's. Haven't found them worth the money. I'd rather put the extra $ into a savings account gaining interest. Roadside assistance like Good Sam is different... It's great to have 1 number to call if you are in a jam.

RE: National Dolphin Dumping Question

Also simply look at the wherebouts of the toilet on the outside of the coach. Follow the plumbing to a huge container. That is the black tank. Follow the pipe out from that to the valve.

RE: Chevolet P30 Shocks

X2 yes, check the springs. Also, is there anything causing offending weight (out of the norm) on the coach?

RE: Slide motor making clicking sound

Make sure all motor bolts are tight. Also, does temperature cause the click? For me if I could not diagnose and it still works, work it till it croaks.

RE: Electrical Woes

Thats a very big bummer getting on the road and having problems like this. I always try to find out how everything works at home to try to keep ahead of events like this... Doesn't always work... You know it will be something simple once it gets figured out... Roy Ken This IS experience talking to you as a newbie. Plug in, connect electric, hoses, run propane at home. Especially before a big trip.

RE: Towing mid-size truck

No Toyota is towable either 4-down. Has to be modified with either a lube pump for the trans or a driveshaft disconnect. FWD models can be towed on a dolly. The 2wd Colorado is not towable either 4-down or on a dolly Same restrictions as above. The 4wd Colorado IS towable either 4-down or on a dolly. Go to remco website to determine which vehicle is towable or not. Good luck Ron We can tow a Toyota Yaris 4 down (standard trans). But yes, for most of the vehicles outside of standard you have to modify.

RE: Onan 7500 stator replacment

Will be from $900 to $1400 depending on location & shop. lg2654 had a good deal with all the others services performed.

RE: Shades for Class A -Inside day/night

Are you looking for window shades, windshield shades, or exterior shades? If it's just simple window shades are you looking for pull down shades, plastic shades, cloth shades? Some areas of the country also call blinds shades. :) If you are looking for regular pull down shades they are simple to make. In fact measure and Home Depot will cut them.

RE: Corner Shower Mat

The old fashioned stick on things also can be a booger to remove. You can always wear flip flops, I've also heard of people using those liners for cabinets. You may be able to find some kind of mats with suction cups on ebay or amazon.

RE: Haldex air dryer

Whenever you are looking for replacement parts, always check ebay. Often there will be a used OEM part, OEM parts new, and/or aftermarket.

RE: U-Dinette R&R

Good job. We like dinettes in our coaches but if this suits you all the better!

RE: Thor chateau super C 33sw Windows opening

Get the evidence. Also state you will post the resolve online. This way it holds them at least somewhat accountable. Thor should be backing up their product and put the pressure on the window MFG. I mean it's opening while driving! Certainly they don't expect for you to just park an RV!

RE: Shower's door

Also search around on Ebay. There is a lot of parts on that site.
