installed new toilet

My father in law now travels with us and is used to a high rise toilet. So I got a new Dometic Model 310. The almost 2" higher is nice but the apperance of the toilet is amazing. It has no rim to catch dirt. You open the lid and you see holes around the top where the rim would be. It flushes so well and the ball seems differant and I think does a better job of shutting than the old one. I had a Dometic model 110 and this is a direct replacement. Took less the 15 minutes out and in. For us older group, I think you would like the higher seat. got it online for around $140+ship

RE: testing brake signal

i don't know your truck but my 2011 chev will not put out any brake voltage sitting at rest. the manual switch will work but the pedal is incorperated into the computer and has to have wheels rolling

RE: Furnace Issue

had the same thing on my coachmen MH. could not shut it off I ended up putting a switch on the wall right next to the furnace on the low voltage thermo wire . No more problems. cost about $3. I also have a thermostat that controls an outlet for my little electric heater and when it gets cold there is no way to shut it off. Heat selector switch off and thermo down, it will still be on. I think it wants to protect the living space from frezzing. All I can do to it is remove the batterys

RE: Wheel Bearings

Just a stupid ?. If the seal doesn"t leak, where does the grease go. A high quality grease should be there forever. My car is approching 100k and I just had brakes done and I told mechanic to change bearings/seals if needed. He did not think any service at this time.In 2009 I changed my brakes to disc and new wheel bearings and seals ( came as part of a kit) have not been touched since and inspection says they are good to go. Dexter says yearly. I say every time you pull the wheel to inspect the drum brakes. Which I believe you should do but I don't have that problem so I elect to leaave well enough alone.

RE: black streaks

white sidewall cleaner works great and no scrubing. But it will take off the wax

RE: Low Water Pressure

First thing you have to do is go buy a pressure gauge. They have those that have a gauge and regulator together, so that would be my first choice. Without knowing the pressure you and all the others that are trying to help you are playing a guessing game. After you get one you will know the pressure at the faucet you have your hose into. Now you could use a water thief ( an adapter) to hook up onto a faucet and then use your new guage to measure the pressure there. guessing just don"t do it

RE: Trailer Tires

Nobody reminded anyone that the ST tire has a getter load carrying capacity that the same size LT. SO, if you decided to go LT than you need to bump up the size of tire and usually will mean new rims. and maybe then there would not be clearance?

RE: Onan 4000 Generator won't turn over some of the time

my emerald 4k did that and finally took the starter motor off, took it to a altenator/starter repair place and never had trouble again what they did?? about $70 repair. Do Not go to Cummings they will not attempt to repair, just sell you a new one. I think they wanted around $350.

RE: Rear stabilizer motor only works in retracting.

it's the switch. DC motor and you reverse the polarity. may be just dirty contacts and by working them may clean up a bit

RE: About long-term storage of Honda eu2000i

go to a store that sells chain saws. I think Huskavarna? sells fuel and I know Sears does in a guart container for around $4 a can that is supposed to last forever. My neighbor uses it but forever isn't here yet so how do we know if it's any good.

Unless 10 has gotten better in the last 4 years, I'd find a differant route. Worst highway i've ever been on. Louisiana being the worst.Thought the axles were going to leave me. Maybe it is better now but the last time I went more north and took 20 so it's been 4 years. I don't like KOA because they are built too small for todays rigs and charge too much for stuff I don't need or use.Never had a problem finding a place to stay.

RE: Onan 4000 dies

Sound to me like the engine low oil switch. Climbing? oil away from switch. Fifty hours, may have used some oil. Dumb question> Did you check oil? I know my Emerald onan 4000 watt used some oil and it would shut off if the oil got hot and thin if too low.

RE: Listings in Good Sam campground guide

To be in G S directory you have to PAY. It must be a lot or more campgrounds would be in it. It really bothers me to be needing a campground and blow right by one on the highway with the next exit 20 miles down the road. Googleing dosen't work all the time but it seems the best way in most cases. Many old Mom and Pop campgrounds don"t have websites so that leaves them out. I wish "like the state you are in could have a site that gives all licensed campgrounds adresses and Phone #'s. But I bet there are more campgrounds than the state knows about or maybe they don"t have to have license?

RE: Smelly water after 3 days

Last time I went to FL the water stunk so bad. I removed my anode and installed a drain valve in it's place. No more stinky water. And before someone goes off on me, that was in 2007 and no, the tank is still in good shape 7 years later. I've said before, home water heaters have an anode and NOBODY ever changes them.

RE: Help with water supply issue from fresh water tank

I just cut the coreplast on three sides and found that the line was bend almost to the point where no water would flow. got it straightened and all was good. Made three holes and stiched the clorplast back up with zip ties. and if you have any, the tape used for tyvac is one that is so sticky it lasts for years. Put some on the cut.

RE: 1500 towing a 5th Wheel

I saw in my travels last fall 2 people towing Jayco Eagle ? with F150 and Toyota Tundra. Both were very pleased with the towing capacity of their trucks. The fivers had 2 slidouts. I was really impressed in the tag on the side . Heck, a weight savings over what I pull now means better MPG, right?

RE: RV electrical

I recently serviced a motorhome that was kicking the gfci. The water heater element was bad and by turning off the breaker did not clear it. Needed to disconnect the neutral wire (white)

RE: Pinhole leaks in sewer hose - what to replace with?

I found that the bumper tube rusted and the scale from the rust created pin holes in the hose. The hose was free to move back and forth plus the jiggiling .The hose in now in a 5" galvenized pipe and no more trouble. Plus I have Rino flex hoses.
