RE: 120VAC problems

Hopefully it didn't blow out the converter.

RE: Just wondering.

It's somewhat the cruel joke of RV's. When you are young and could go crazy RV'ing, you don't have money. When you are older and have money, you don't always have the health & reflexes as the young ones.

RE: Solar Panels

Just as an FYI, I mounted some with Shoe Goo. Insanely amazingly strong. They Will not budge at all.

RE: roof seam sealants

Eternabond all the way. I've seen it used very successfully on a church roof made of metal 2 stories up. Nobody can see it anyway. :)

RE: Exhaust

there are also many of those at Autozone. Some are screw on mounts too. Mainly you want to make sure the tailpipe is flush with the body.... Even if it's a couple inches you'll probably be okay. Main thing is you don't want exhaust going into the coach.

RE: Fastening a cable to a roof

I've had great results with dicor and shoe goo glue.

RE: 2012 Newmar ventana LE 3634

I think everybody has their preference on power. Some don't like to feel the weight of the coach, some don't mind. Go with whatever drives the best for you.

RE: Choice route

I always choose to go the road less traveled as possible. I get white knuckles in some traffic. : )

RE: 97 F53 radiator

You can always try an add on extra set of radiator fans. Are the ones you currently have working 100%?

RE: Interior LED lights Winnebago

I do believe you will need to replace the entire fixture. When we purchased an Adventurer in 2013 we were told that the following year Winnebago would be switching to interior LED lights. At that time we would be able to replace the halogen bulbs that came in our coach with LED components. I tried on several occasions to order replacements only to be told no such bulbs existed. Finally at the 2016 GNR I asked a rep how I could replace our current Halogen bulbs. At that time I was told that the only way to replace just the bulbs was to order them from an after market vendor. Winnebago had decided that rather than continue purchasing the same fixtures with LED's they decided to go with another vendor that supplied the housing and bulb as a complete unit. They were less expensive, but if one failed the entire fixture would need to be replaced. As a side note you might want to contact Winnebago. They did have a number of problems with the all in one units. At one point they were replacing them at no charge to the original owners. I would replace with aftermarket with a real bulb. That way if one burns out again, you can simply replace the bulb.

RE: Slightly used, but still running

See it's just a matter of your mindset. You, he, and/or she may care what an RV looks like... But some people could care less. Does it drive? Yep. Does it get out there? Yep. In life I've met people with net worth of 10+ million that shop at thrift stores and drive 20 year old cars. Some of them simply do not care what anybody thinks of them and only are concerned about function. One must ask. Two coaches side by side. This one, and a 2018. Both have the same views, both function. Outside it's all the same. But one is paid for, the other 100k in debt. Some may be snarky and say "I'd rather have the debt", but the other guy says, "Yep, but I get to be here on Monday, enjoy your weekend".

RE: ge produxts be aware

I want more than anything for Hobart to start making appliances for both home and RV's. Unfortunately, a lot of government now exists in our appliances.

RE: Having the hardest time buying a new class A

Thing is about residential refrigerators is they seem to perform way way better and last way way longer than the others. No they don't run on propane which is a problem... Constantly here even on RV net we've seen people with so much trouble with classic RV refrigerators... Countless posts. What we do when we boondock is freeze LARGE ice packs, lots of them in the freezer when plugged in. Put the ice packs all through the fridge and freezer when boondocking. If you need to fire the generator to re-freeze, get them all back into the freezer. At least that's what we'd do. To each their own, and understand all situations are different.

RE: On-Site Oil Change - Yuma

x2, check with park management. Usually oil changes aren't rocket science. I think so long as they are clean and quick the park management won't care... Unless it's more or less a ritzy snobby park.

RE: Kids and class C

We have a class A and our kids are all teenagers now, but when we first bought it, they were ages 1, 3, 4 & 7. Yes, in those days, we did use at least 2 cars seats with the youngest ones. But once they were big enough to be belted in, we no longer used the car seats in the motorhome. Our general rule was, once they were old enough to move around on their own, that IF they needed to use the potty, they would ask permission. If I felt it was safe (I was driving), then I gave them permission. This would require that we were not in a high traffic situation, there was lots of space between vehicles, good weather, etc. etc.. In other words, a low risk situation. If we were in bumper-to-bumper, stop & go traffic, then we pretty much encouraged them to get up and use the potty during the traffic jam. Again, very low risk situation. Once we started travelling at speed, most of those caught in the traffic jam were pulling into rest areas to use the potty while we just kept trucking down the road. If we were on a long trip, we would have premade sandwiches, snacks & drinks and wifey would distribute these. Or if a diaper needed to be changed, we'd pull over at the next convenient rest area. As the kids got older, they had more freedom, but they will ALWAYS ask for permission to make sure it's safe, and so that I know they are no longer in their belted seats. In my opinion, there is no better way to travel with children than in a motorhome. Use it wisely and enjoy the trip! ~Rick I like this because you let it "live a little". There were days when you could pile up children in a hatchback, ride in the back of pickup trucks, and not worry about every little thing you did on the road. I mean, you are the driver, if you are not in a dangerous traffic area, things look smooth, we'd go for it. :)

RE: Boys and Grils - A Change of Seasons

Glad you had fun with it! Life adventures don't have to stop even if you stop RV'ing! :)

RE: 1997 Southwind ignition key

It may just be easier to put a new key into it using lock pics to push the cylinder into place? Is it a classic fit key with the small whole to change the cylinder? Often doing so is a 5 minute job.
crasster 04/16/18 12:50pm Class A Motorhomes

Why use fuel if you don't have to? I know electricity is a form of fuel, but at least it's a plug in and not something you need to go refill.

RE: FMCA Michelin tire program issues

Well if anything else is learned, always check on the labor rate. Still though $540 for 6 tires mount and balance seems very high. Many smaller tire shops will have the jacks needed (basically bigger bottle jacks) and heavy duty impact wrenches to service a coach. What size tires?
