RE: white spots on windshield

Once you use " " product to clean the water spots etc off the windshield. Its a good time now to do a final step and clay bar the windshield. You'll be amazed how more stuff it will clean off. Then put a couple of coats of Reload paint sealant or your favorite glass treatment IE: Rain-X,, etc My car detailer who installed my clear bra and paint sealant uses the Reload on all painted and glass surfaces , works great on the windshield ! Bug splatter etc, cleans right off easy I've been using Rain-X washer fluid for a while in my vehicles. I've decided it's well worth it. the concept is not unlike what is used in aircraft....rain repellent to encourage beading and shedding of water.

RE: Considering a new Winnebago View 24J

Lewis RV in Dayton Ohio is known for low prices and it may be worthwhile calling them for a quote, 937-253-8816. They will deal over the phone and are another resource for information. Another data point is I heard WGO is allowing dealers to advertise 25% off MSRP so it looks like there is a price beyond that to be had. MSPs have gone up a lot in recent years which may account for that new policy. Lewis will likely be your benchmark in any case.

RE: Considering a new Winnebago View 24J

Anyone have any thoughts on the overhead bunk? We use our overhead bunk as a bulk storage are for big light stuff like jock bags and paddling gear. We took out the mattress, carpeted it, and made a net that stretches across to keep stuff from jumping out.

RE: Propane Level Indication?

I discovered that the range of the sending unit on mine could be matched with an analog fuel gauge. One VDO fuel gauge purchased on eBay and my science project works. When "full" at 80% the gauge reads FULL and goes down from there. I haven't gone all the way to empty but I'm pretty sure than end of the scale is correct from how far I've drawn down the tank.

RE: battery

When checking battery voltage after charging, the battery needs to "rest" before the voltage measurement is made. Let the battery sit for a few hours unloaded and then take a voltage reading. A fully charged rested battery should be very close to 12.7 volts with no load.

RE: Fiberglass Repair Help

The real fix is to grind it out repair any damage, fill and refinish. A die grinder works well for this. If the damage goes deep enough, you need to get behind it and lay in some fiberglass. It is very doable if you've done any bodywork and are willing to learn a bit of fiberglass work if needed. I suspect you are going to find it is more cosmetic than anything. I don't think stop drilling it is going to do much for you as fiberglass cracks don't propagate in fiberglass like aluminum. The "paint" they use when molding fiberglass is called gelcoat. It is thick stuff that is sprayed into the mold befor the fiberglass goes in. The fiberglass, when laid into the mold sticks to the gelcoat as the exposed surface remains tacky after "drying". It almost looks like the gelcoat or gelcoat and a layer of thin fiberglass have separated. I used to work with fiberglass a lot so I've seen a bit. If you do and up having to do glass work in the interior of the RV I would recommend using something other that polyester resin (epoxy may be better). The smell of polyester resin inside an enclosed place like an RV will linger a long time and could cause marital strife. It is one of the more potent and permanent stinks I know of. If you feel you are in over your head I know of an RV repair place in Fife (Wescraft) that did an excellent job on an insurance repair of my fiberglass overhead from a rock strike.

RE: Winter time travel

Unload the G&T, and Mojito mixing stuff and prep for warm adult beverages. You should be good to go.

RE: Keep plugged in or disconnect battery when parked

If they have a single stage converter, the easiest thing is to disconnect. If plugged in, the batteries will need to be checked regularly. They could also plug in to battery maintainers for the coach and chassis batteries which would be really easy. No disconnecting of anything required. The best thing for them would be to change over to a multi stage converter. They are not that expensive and generally not difficult to install. Mine went into the same enclosure as the old converter.

RE: Oil and filter change

I'm spoiled. The oil filter on mine is on top of the engine and at the front. The down side is the MB spec oil is made from the breast milk of mermaids and the price reflects it.

RE: 24v batteries

They are most likely Group 24- 12 volt batteries. I"m betting this is the answer^^^

RE: 2006 Itasca Navion vs 2009 Winnebago View

One other little thing. Ours has the propane powered generator and later models are diesel powered. I like the propane. Your opinion may vary. Maybe you don''t like the H floorplan, but we do, and the other floorplans have very small side windows, which sort of belie ther 'View' model name. As for the sleeping choices, DW needs the firmness of the dinette support. I can sleep almost anywhere, and use either the couch or crow's nest depending on the night tmmeperature. Actually most of them are LP powered. Diesel was an option when I bought mine. I have diesel. The up side is it doesn't drain the LP supply. The down side is it stinks....and it's loud.

RE: Value of a 2009 Winnebago View 24H

Worth keeping, I would say. Why are you considering selling? As a side note, ours has a propane generator. Does yours really run on deisel? Yes, there are diesel generators out there. I have one.

RE: Navion or View what's the Difference?

A couple of points: Regarding Itasca vs Winnebago, there will be no difference in service between brands. They came off same production line and dealers sell both. The only difference is colors of trim. As far as ease of maintenance, I do my own and the MB is easier to work on under the hood than my E350 was. For instance the oil filter it on top of the engine at the front. I've never had a problem finding diesel fuel. As soon as one owns a diesel it becomes pretty obvious. The myth of diesel being hard to find is just that....a myth.

RE: Dash mounted aftermarket GPS

The only reception issues I've had is when I mounted my dash cam too close to the GPS. Can't have both in the center of the windshield.

RE: 2nd battery

There are virtually no true deep cycle wet cell 12V batteries. If you want true deep cycle performance switch over to 6V golf cart batteries. They are inexpensive and widely available. Learn to read you battery voltage and what it means as are as charge and you will soon learn to interpret how "empty" your batteries are.

RE: Newer RVs that are hard to winterize.....grrrrr

Get the coupling from Campers World that lets you feed air into your water line. Open all drains and blow out the water with about 15 PSI air pressure. This. I use about 30 PSI

RE: Kayak storage?

Regarding trailers, one can put cross bar on a utility trailer and anything that will mount to cross bars can go on top of the trailer. I just U bolted two tubes across and I can carry 4 bikes on top of mine on Thule carriers. Kayaks would just need the appropriate saddles.

RE: Kayak storage?

We have an Advanced Elements Convertible inflatable set up as a tandem. It all packs up into a 60# bag and can ride inside the RV. We've had it for about 4 years now. Several of our friends now have them too. It's been a great boat in warm weather and not so warm.
