RE: Electric fireplace

GFCI outlets are designed to trip due to ground faults, not over current. Your "little medical machine" may have a problem. Try it and see if it trips it again.

RE: Electric fireplace

I too would expect a separate breaker. Check all breakers. When a breaker is tripped it is not obvious as the handle does not flip all the way to the OFF position. It just moves slightly off of the ON position. If you are not getting any lights on the front panel then no doubt it does not have power. Could be breaker, could be plug came out, could be a loose wire, could be a bad power switch. If you can not find a tripped breaker or tripped GFCI plug, then look around the edges of the fireplace to see if there are screws that can be removed to allow the fireplace to pull out and let you see the power cord behind, assuming you are comfortable messing with electricity and such.

RE: Anybody have a f350 crew cab with 20 inch wheels

I have a 2012 F350 FX4 crew cab long bed with 20" wheels. It is right at 38" to the bed, and 57 1/2" to the top of the bed rails at the very rear, the highest point. I have the Reese Elite hitch that fits the Ford factory hitch prep. I had to drop it to the lowest holes. The 5er still sits a tad nose high, but not enough to be a concern. I also have a 5th Airborne air ride pin box that is a little taller than the OEM pin box and that contributes to some of that height.

Could be the phone, but could be some change in their local coverage that caused the problem since you did have it at one time but no longer. We had AT&T several years ago. We made an annual trip to south central Colorado every year. We got very weak service at the campground (about 5 miles from town) but great signal in town. But others with AT&T got reasonable service at the campground. Upon returning home we went to an AT&T store, explained the problem, and they suggested new phones (surprise, surprise), and recommended specific models. Well the next time we went to the same campground, not only could we not get signal at the campground, we could not get it in town either. Called AT&T and explained the problem. Their first reply was that they do not provide service to that area. When I explained that I had got service there previously (as noted by ATT on the phone screen), they could not explain it. I asked for different model phones to replace the new ones that did not work where our old ones did. Then their basic reply was, sorry, you were the ones who decided to buy new phones. But they would be glad to sell us different new ones. Went to Verizon and never regretted it. Much better coverage at that campground and every where else we have ever been.

RE: AVOID Shell station selling tires & gas in Wells NV

Don't understand what you mean by "new" owner (in quotes).New or not? And you say "it appears there are still problems". Are there or not? Unless you can be sure of both I think caution would be better than AVOID.

RE: Diesels...Ford vs GMC vs Dodge

Easy answer. They are all so close it is only personal preference.

RE: Decals!!!

Check with Winnebago to see if replacement graphics are available. Some manufacturere with supply new graphics free, but you have to pay to have them installed or do it yourself.

RE: where do you put your bikes?

I used to remove the front wheels and lay two bikes in the bed of the truck in front of the hitch. And sometimes another behind it. Built a pin box receiver for the bike rack to free up the bed.

RE: Water problem ,,, need help ASAP

That second leak may have just been water from the first leak that had run under/thru unseen areas til it found a way out.

RE: Air Conditioner Keystone Montana

If you are not already a member of the Montana Owners Club (MOC) forum go there and ask your question. Lots of Montana expertise there.

RE: Fifth wheel hitch for the ford puck system

I am also very happy with my Reese Elite after 2+ yrs and many miles. Very positive wrap around locking jaw. One thing I particularly like is that I can slide quite a bit of lumber (or other long items) under the hitch. Especially useful when I am not towing, but doing some maintenance type work and carrying a lot of 8' lumber. But it is more expensive than the others.

RE: Branson, MO to Durant, OK

It has been 2 (3?) yrs, but we towed our 35' 5er from Branson down US 65, to US 412, to I-49, to I-40, to US 69 to Texas. As far as the tow, no problems at all. But at the time, there was some pretty rough sections of US 69 between McAlester and Atoka. But I seem to remember reading that it had been repaved since then.

RE: one night stops

If it is relatively level, I leave it hooked up. I usually drop the front jacks just to reduce the movement from walking around. I connect electric to the pedastal, but do not disconnect the cord from the truck. I do have a Ford.

RE: Fifth wheel hitch for the ford puck system

Reese Elite is probably the most expensive one. But B&W and Pullrite both make good hitches to fit the puck system for less.

RE: Slides stopping too soon.

Most likely an Auto reset circuit breaker. When they start going bad they over heat, open up, cool down, reclose, over heat, repeat. Will probably be located near the battery and pump area. Cheap and easy to replace. Available at RV stores and many auto parts stores. Look on the side for the amp rating. As far as the fluid it should be near the top of the tank when all slides are retracted.

RE: GM Silverada Beats F250 In Frame Twist Test

I guess if I took my truck rock climbing that might mean something.

RE: Which is better the Montana or Cedar Creek 5th wheel

I can only speak of my Montana. Bought new July 2007. Had a minor wiring problem corrected after about 3 weeks. Still have the trailer and it has never been back for any repairs. The convection/microwave did fail after about 3 years. Replaced it myself. No name DVD/sound system failed after about 4 years. I replaced that with a Panasonic Blu-ray DVD/surround sound system. Replaced the Chinese tires with Michelin XPS Ribs even though I had no problems with the original tires. No problems with the trailer itself. Could not be happier with it.

RE: Dish or Direct or nothing

The antenna that comes with your RV will net you at any given time over 20 channels. Why do you need more than that? gee, none of the channels I watch consistently are in those 20. bumpy And I guess you have not encountered one, but there are places that do not have OTA signals and do not have cable either.

RE: Problem Cougar

I would call Keystone customer relations directly and explain the problems to them. Hopefully they would get involved and help solve the service issues.

RE: Dish or Direct or nothing

Check dishformyrv.com. Very easy to get an account just for the RV. We have had Dish at home and in the RV for years and have been very happy with it.
