RE: Tow Bar connecting

If one arm does not lock when you pull forward or if you back the toad instead, you may have to turn the motor home steering wheel and pull forward several feet. My wife always stayed outside and checked to make sure it was locked.

RE: elbow pain driving the Class A

I found that by adjusting the steering wheel almost flat and resting both forearms on the arm rests I was very comfortable driving.

RE: Itasca Dashboard Cover Question

I bought the one for my 2004 Sightseer from the service center factory store while I was there for some warranty repair. You might call them and see what they have. You can't buy direct from them unless you are at the store, but a dealer can order one for you. I used Lichtsinn Motors several times for parts and had good luck with them.LICHTSINN. They are a dealer a mile or so from the factory. If you call Lichtsinn have your VIN handy. They can cross it to your ID number so they will know which parts are on your coach.

RE: Tire covers & Wiper/Mirror Covers

Like others I used foam pipe insulation on my wipers and also put a tennis ball under each wiper arm to keep them off the windshield. I bought the motor home new in 2004 and the wipers lasted for ten years before I had to replace them.

RE: Tire covers & Wiper/Mirror Covers

I also use the foam tubes around the wipers. They work great! I have yet to figure out, why one would want to spend money to cover the outside mirrors? Two reasons: We were told to cover the mirrors in the Jekyll Island state park because wood peckers would attack their reflection. We had yellow jacket wasps build a nest behind the glass of the drivers side mirror while we were at my sister in laws commercial peach orchard in western CO for a couple of months. I sprayed them with insecticide and a couple of months later I was able to wash the nest out with a water spray nozzle. We covered them with plastics bags the next year when we went back.

RE: Mail

We used a mail forwarding service when we full timed. When we switched to being snowbirds we kept the mail forwarding service and had the post office do a TEMPORARY mail forwarding to our mail forwarding service. You can do it for six months but have the option to add an additional six months on-line.

RE: USA RV maps

Although we didn't have a sticker. If we had, we would have filled in every state we passed through. As already said above - my map my rules.

RE: Wet passenger floor

One other possibility - my wife had the Trailer Life RV park book and a couple of other large books pushed under the dash cavity in front of her captains chair. That blocked an ac vent (return air?) and resulted in a lot of condensation forming and wetting the books and carpet in front.

RE: Satellite dish hookup

The Pathway gets its power via the coax. Your wall coax may be going through a splitter that will not pass dc voltage. If so there is a simple way to connect it. There are several ways to do it. Winegard recommends the diagram below. Making the connections the way Winegard recommends does not require adding any coax connectors to the wallplate. Note that this assumes your front TV is connected to the coax connector on the front of the wall plate. If yours isn't, there should be a splitter in the line labeled "To second TV" that will send the signal to both the front and rear TVs (if you have two TVs). What Winegard calls a "power supply" below is the wall plate with the antenna booster switch and LED showing when the amplifier is on. If you still want to be able to use the external cable in for both cable TV and the external dish just add an A/B switch to switch the incoming coax from the sat receiver "sat input" to the sat receiver "TV input". If your receiver doesn't have a coax output (and many new ones don't) and you still want to use the batwing antenna you will need to use an A/B switch to switch the signal between the receiver and the antenna out connection on the wall plate. One thing not shown in the diagram is using the RCA type connections or the better quality "component" type output or the HDMI (best) output between the sat receiver and the TV. That will yield a much better picture with no interference from any local channels. You have to select a "video in" with your TV menu instead of using channel 3 (for example). Some newer satellite receivers don't have a coax output so you may have to use HDMI or component connections. If you have a video distribution box that will have to be taken into account. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v425/ClayL/Winegardsathookup.jpg

RE: TV Schematic

This is what I did when I first installed my roof dish and still wanted to use my external dish. Some use two diplexers but only one is needed. Using one does put the LNB switching voltage on the TV cable input when you connect to one but the cable system is isolated with a capacitor so the dc voltage does not affect it. I did it differently late without a diplexer but I( can't find that schematic right now. HERE

RE: grey and black water tanks

My wife and I put 3 1/2 gallons in the black tank each day and 10 gallons of gray water in the gray tank each day. This is when only one of us takes a shower each day. We could use a little less gray water by putting a plastic tub in each side of the sink when washing dishes and dumping that outside (where allowed).

RE: Onan 5500 Fuel Filter removal

I used the adapter shown above. Note that when Onan went to just one filter and added the adapter they went to a new filer. Fuel filter new style = #149-2341-01

RE: Fresh water tank getting fresh water?

If you are in the city fill mode the pump may run and pump water from the fresh water tank. If the pump is on and the shore water pressure is lower than the water pump cut-in pressure it will run and take water from the tank. At one RV park that we spent all or part of the winter in for several years, the water pressure varied from 20 psi or so up to about 35 psi depending on whether the well pump had just pumped the well pressure tank up and the number of users. When we took a shower we always turned the pump on so we had a decent pressure when the shore pressure dropped.

RE: Tire size

Changing the rolling radius of the tires and tire weight that much can affect a number of things including the suspension, speedo, engine control computer settings and shift points on the transmission.

RE: leveling during overnight stops

If the rear end of your rig is going to be raised very much when you level, it is best to have the toad in neutral. As you raise the rear end it pulls the toad forward so the wheels need to be able to roll some.

RE: Potable Water Etiquette

As camp hosts at an Idaho state park it was part of our job to tell folks they couldn't leave a hose connected. For some reason the park rules did not allow Ys to be used.
