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.

RE: generac help

I have a whole home Generac and you'd think the motor is going to bust thru the case when it stops. Been doing that for 10 years cant figure it out but after all this time and no damage and it starts and runs fine I kinda just forget about it

RE: diagram of aluminum construction

I have a crack and wrote the co and they replied "it's out of warrenty, go see a dealer. They may be able to help you" how's that for being blown off. End of story It's cracked and has not gotten larger.

RE: Flojet VSD Water Pump

I too am disappointed by the pressure. I have a guage installed indoors and it shuts off at around 45# but when you take a shower or get water from the faucet it runs around #12 while the water is flowing. They don"t tell you pressure while flowing, just gpm and maybe shutoff pressure. That is within specs just lousy working pressure.

RE: Jacuzzi

Can't you feel your leg being pulled. Even if water and weight where no problem it takes forever to warm it up. Then there is the 250 volt 50 amp curcuit required ( yeh, I know about the 120 volt ones) even longer time .

RE: hard wired my converter in but not sure of polarity

Not really if the wire goes only to the convertor because all it is a glorified transformer and battery charger. But if it ( the cord) fed any outlets or lights the wrong polaraty could create a shock hazard.

RE: cleaning out waste tank

If you feel you need to clean the tank, get some Rid X and fill the tank with water. the little bugs will eat all the poo and you will have a nice clean tank (WHY?)
