RE: New Monaco Diplomat Nightmare

I don't see how anyone can blame the owner.......this guy paid the price for a NEW motor home. It's up to the dealer to deliver a safe, working product. I remember my first purchase, I didn't know anything, looking back at it, neither did the kid that did the walk thru with me. One thing I remember, he didn't even know how to operate the toilet. So I don't think the consumer in this case can be blamed, for problems that are obviously the manufactures fault. Brian

RE: New Monaco Diplomat Nightmare

I'd be coming unglued over this. As far as I'm concerned it is the Dealers problem, that's who you bought it from. Let's face it, if you buy a Ford, you deal with the dealer about problems. You don't have to call Ford headquarters, at least under normal circumstances. I'd document everything, keep all receipts for motels, meals, tows, etc. I don't blame you, and I'd do the same thing, if I couldn't get satisfaction from the dealer, I too would call Monaco. Good luck, and I'm sorry for the problems you have. Keep on them. Brian

6V Deep Cycle Batteries

I have 4 Interstate 6V deep cycle batteries. They're approx. 3 years old. I've had the motorhome for 6 months and the batteries have been checked and serviced regularly. Terminals clean and tight. My problem is, they don't seem to hold a charge very long. I can get them up to 13.5 - 14.0 volts on the indicator.......but after only a couple of hours of running the TV, Direct Receiver, Frig, Carbon Monoxide detector, invertor they're down to 11 volts. How many years does a typical deep cycle battery last? Are these getting old and due for replacement? What do you think? Thanks Brian

RE: Evaporative Cooler on the Roof??

On California Gold with Hugh Hosier (sp?) several years ago, he did a show on houses down around Thermal CA and the cooling system they used years ago. If I remember right, they draped the houses in burlap and had water tanks on towers that would drip and wet the burlap. I think they used these in the early 1900's. Probably could find more doing a search online. Brian

Evaporative Cooler on the Roof??

I was driving back from Virginia City NV today. On hiway 50 just east of Carson City, I saw an older bus conversion with a very large evaporative cooler on the roof.....must have been about 4 feet higher then the roof.......looked like something waiting to be taken off by a tree limb or overpass. Don't think I had ever seen one on an RV before. Brian

Shower Liquid Soap Dispenser

I have a 3 container liquid dispenser in my shower. What kind of liquid soap do you use in this? I assume compartments are for soap, shampoo, and conditioner. Thanks Brian

RE: Blue ox pin failure

Had a Blue Ox base plate brake on my 07 Escape hybrid after a couple years of use, probably about 10K miles total use, safety cables did their job. Called Blue Ox and they had re engineered the new base plate for my model/year...sent me a new one, no charge. New one was much better built. Brian

RE: China made LED light Strip problems.

i'm using the transformers........and I also I have one light out of the 4 available. Prior to soldiering instead of using the supplied connectors only half the green lights would come on. Now I have green white and blue, but no red on one string.

China made LED light Strip problems.

I've installed a couple of LED light strips, one down each bottom side of my motor home. I purchased them online for around $25, they flash, change colors, dim etc etc. I've had nothing but problems, that I've narrowed down to a view things. one being voltage drop, which makes the lights act erratic, ie, different color then selected, only 1/2 the lights come on, etc etc. I've increased the wire gauge size, soldiered all connections, and it works about 95% correctly. I've researched online, and it appears there's lots of problems with these so called cheap China made LED light strips. The light strips themselves are thin, cheap components that burn out, voltage drop among other things. I haven't talked to any experts yet, but have read and seen videos that compare the China made ones with domestic strips. The quality of the domestic is superior...........the price also goes up.......but I guess you get what you pay for. I'm curious, has anyone else run into problems with their mult function, multi colored light strips? Thanks Brian

RE: Got hung up and could not move. How did I get out?

If it was a dirt driveway, you could dig a small trench for the hitch. Brian

RE: How do they jack up big coach when replacing tires?

Use the leveling jacks to take most of the weight off the coach.........Tires should still be on the ground. Then use a jack to raised the axle up so the tire is just off the ground then change the tire. This way you have the leveling jacks as a back up.

RE: changed out Norcold to Amish cooling unit

If I ever have problems, this is the way I'm going. http://www.rvrefrigerator.net/ Have already talked to him and read reviews. I've already installed the ARP control unit, which I highly recommend, alo9ng with a fire extinguisher..........which I bought from Mac the Fire Guy........lots of info on his website. Brian

RE: Refrigerator Safety Device

Dennis, when I was talking to Mac the fire guy about extinguishers, he said he had one of the APRrv controls installed on his refrigerator. From what I had previously read and hearing this from Mac, convinced me this was the way to go. Brian

Refrigerator Safety Device

I just finished the install of my Absorption Refrigeration Protective RV Control. I think this is one of the most important installations I've done to my RV...........especially from a safety stand point. Anyone that is concerned about refrigerator fires should take a look at this device. The installation was NOT difficult....but did take a few hours......I installed the unit with a indicator inside the motor home, so running the wires was the most time consuming. I'm sure the installation where the indicator is in the access compartment for the rear of the refrigerator would be much faster. www.arprv.com is where you can read all about it. Spend a little time looking over the website, it's loaded with information, and I think you'll agree, this is a good device to have. I know I'll sleep better knowing I have an extra bit of safety. Next step is to install a fire extinguisher to cover all bases. By the way, Paul at ARPrv was very helpful, you contact him via email or phone. Brian
