RE: Iota transfer switch

I put a Progressive Dynamics transfer switch in mine (it didn't have one from the factory). This will be it's fourth season. So far, no issues. I went with PD's reputation for making a very good power converter (which I also have).

RE: Frig does not get cold on electric?

First item: Check for AC voltage at the outlet the fridge is plugged into. It could be something as simple as a GFI popped. Get one of these and keep it in the RV.

RE: Help Identify this Class A (Criminal Case)

Is it possible the OP is wanting to buy the MH when the county/state sells it after the condemnation hearing? The more information he has about the unit, the more he is able to figure out what it is worth. If it has had meth manufactured inside it, the state may require it be destroyed however. Not a chance. In good shape that RV is worth maybe 10 grand. I have a perfectly good 2011 Navion (and a well paying day job) and have no need for some 15 year old abused POS that has had been a doper crash pad. I presume that once they ID it and if it is determined to be stolen, it will go to impound and an insurance company (if it was insured) will have it hauled off to auction or if uninsured the owner will be contacted to collect it. Hopefully law enforcement can develop evidence for further charges now they know what they are looking at. The cops are trying to get him for everything they can. They even had Fish and Game in on the raid as there has been deer poaching happening in the area. I choose to be an active participant in my community and not phone in my citizenship just at election time. I (and others on this board) have helped the cops with a lead. Now it's up to them to develop a case if they can.

RE: Help Identify this Class A (Criminal Case)

If you read what the op wrote, this was a narcotics search warrant. Narcotics cops tend to care mostly about narcotics and not stolen vehicles, but they will do a stolen vehicle case if it's an easy one. Sounds like the easy to find VIN's were removed from the vehicle. Also sounds like the vehicle is on private property. Also sounds like the search warrant was for drugs and not a stolen vehicle. So to impound this motorhome and start taking it apart to look for the hidden VIN's is likely going to require another warrant. Also looks to me like it is not going to be easy vehicle to tow and will potentially be very expensive to tow with the potential that the law enforcement agency may be paying for that tow. Yeah, they could get a warrant and send officers back out and look for VIN's on the scene, but that could be time consuming. Now if they can get a make and model and do some checking for similar stolen motorhomes maybe they can identify the motorhome as stolen and identify an insurance company that will pay for an impound, Now this is all just speculation on my part, but I am a retired cop and spent many years in investigations including time in both auto theft and narcotics, and I'm not willing to accuse the OP of being up to no good here. I can see how this can happen. Thanks. They had their vehicle guy trying to ID the vehicle and the closest they got was a date ID off the steering column....which was 1998 or so....Ford. They also had Fish and Game out trying to bag them on other charges. They are looking for everything they can get and if I could short cut the search process I was happy to help.....the help came from here. Direct quotes from my contact with KCSO: Me: "Gulfstream Sunsport. Mid 90s or so." Kojak: "Made by Gulfstream and Sunsport is the model? The Ford steering column is from 1998 so I think it is a 99 or 2000 vintage. Your associates on the RV website id’d it?" Me: Yep. RVer associate IDed it today. If column is original you are probably correct. Yes, Gulfstream is the manufacturer and Sunsport is the model. Kojak: Looking at google images as we speak. THANK YOU AND THE HORSE YOU RODE IN ON! Me to RV.Net right now: Thank you all.

RE: Help Identify this Class A (Criminal Case)

He is currently in the KC jail on 20 grand bail awaiting trial. I wouldn't mind further charges and that number going up. I have zero interest in a crappy old class A beyond keeping the last occupant in prison for as long as possible. He's been in and out a bunch of times and he returns to his mom's place (the property in question) and starts over. This is the big chance to keep him in a while and the cops are looking for all the help they can get from the citizenry to make that happen. Get involved. Neighborhood security is a team sport. As far as me fearing retribution from the property owner, she has bigger problems with the county as they will be serving her abatement paperwork due to her kid's activities there. Fellow KC tax payer here....We had about the same problem with druggie neighbors. Cops would come over and within a month they were out of jail doing drugs again. Then after about 2 years KC board of health got involved...placed was closed down in about 1 month. No more problems. If we'd known about that angle would of saved everybody a lot of headaches. Do you know about http://ingress.kingcounty.gov/inmatelookup/ for looking them up in KC? Our old druggie neighbors had to move when their house was shut down. Maybe your new neighbors? I'm aware of it. I keep track of our local miscreants that way. The guy that hit me has been in 6 times since I was burglarized. It was me crowdsourcing info on FB that led to him being picked up and me getting my log splitter back. Cops admired my detective work.

RE: Help Identify this Class A (Criminal Case)

Why do the police need to know the make and model of this RV? Is it only stolen if it's a Winnebago? :B Is that picture from the police department for distribution? Or did you sneak over into the neighbor's yard and take the picture!?! Cops e-mailed it to me.

RE: Help Identify this Class A (Criminal Case)

If the make/model is identified it makes their job easier. That is all. I can't believe this can be so hard. I thought folks would enjoy having a little fun with it.

RE: Help Identify this Class A (Criminal Case)

Detectives ALWAYS look for information, no matter where it comes from. If they get a lead they pursue it. They went into the RV to grab the guy at 0600...flash bangs and all. Right now they are trying to narrow down where it came from. You can call the above contact info at the KCSO if you like. They can put you in contact with the detective. :S You sure do really have a vested interest in this don't you? If you had a heroin/meth dealer living in your neighborhood, wouldn't you? I am part of a neighborhood watch and very involved.

RE: Help Identify this Class A (Criminal Case)

For those suspicious, the sheriff's office are swamped so I offered to help. I helped put this vermin in jail as one of his "customers" burglarized me. The cops do not have the RV in their possession. It is on private property. If they determine it to be stolen, they will grab it too. Still working on the photo issue. TO determine if it is stolen THEY NEED THE VIN so the auto theft and forensic units NEED TO BE INVOLVED. IF THE VIN has been removed then the police can seize it and determine the VIN BLOW MORE SMOKE They will be involved if I can shortcut the ID process and give them a make model to home in on. That's all I'm doing. After that, it's all theirs. If you don't trust me go to this link Clicky and get the contact information for Precinct 2. Call them and tell them you can ID the make/model of the motorhome in the April 4th SWAT raid in Carnation.

RE: Help Identify this Class A (Criminal Case)

The police should be able to get info on a hidden VIN from the chassis manufacturer. Don't they have an auto theft unit? It was removed too.

Help Identify this Class A (Criminal Case)

I am doing a favor for local law enforcement which just put a local heroin/meth dealer and thief in jail awaiting trial. He was living in this class A RV. All identification has been removed from it. No manufacturer ID, no plates, VINs removed, etc. I offered to try and crowd source an identification to make their investigation easier. The reward for correctly IDing the RV is the satisfaction of possible ADDING to what he has been charged with. Thanks and here we go: http://i.imgur.com/78kDkI3l.jpg

RE: 12v or 2 6v batteries?

And, if you don't need to power both air conditioners, you can run only one generator and save half the fuel. OK, I get it. Don't necessarily agree with it though as now you have TWO things to keep maintained; oil changes and the like. A single generator running at half load would save a fair amount of gas; maybe not half though. To each his own, I guess. Thanks for explaining. It's pretty common to parallel two smaller generators. "2000" size generators can be lifted with one hand and are more easily stored than larger units. If one is not expecting to need the power of two generators, just leave one at home. Generator maintenance is pretty trivial so there's no real extra effort there. Manufacturers realized this and designed it into their products.

RE: 2006 Winnebago Outlook Flashing gas indicator on fridge

I doubt your LP level and fridge malfunction are related. First thing you want to do is make sure the burner is clean and the flue unobstructed. I had a piece of scale drop from the flue down onto my burner and cause all kinds of grief. If the gas jet can be checked, check it and behind it in case there's an obstruction there. If you are still having issues check the gas pressure. In general the blinking light is a malfunction indicator. I'm betting you hace a dirty burner like others have said.

RE: CEL After Failed COSTCO fill + OBD II Scan

Buy a Scanguage and mount it in your RV. It is very useful beyond just reading codes. LINK

RE: 12v or 2 6v batteries?

Sixes are superior in every way except price. Since you already have one 12v, I suggest you buy one similar 12v and use them till they fail, then upgrade to 6v. You won't have to wait long.
