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.

RE: 77minnie winnie refridgerator

If it smells like ammonia, then your cooling unit is shot. Been there, Done that. Yep. There are places where you can buy the cooling units exchange if you're up for the project.

RE: Winnebago view 24J bed

Here would be the first place I would start with a query like that.

RE: Bicycles-recommendations?

Big box store bikes are the Yugos of the cycling world. I work on my own (and friends') bikes and the Yugos are horrible to keep adjusted...if they can be. Go to a local bike shop, or even a chain like Performance Bike. REI offers very good value in their house brand (Novara) and they go on sale in the spring. REI has real bicycle people in their bike department too. You don't have to spend a mint but a $100 bike will work as well as that $4000 Yugo did.

RE: Diesel class c

I've see a pusher class As and Bs, never a C.

RE: to toad or not how about you?

We do both. It depends on what we are doing on that trip. Last two trips we had the toad and didn't use it.

RE: Parking pad on a slope -- on a budget

I just dealt with a similar situation at my brother's house. We take out RV over there but his driveway has a significant slope which is beyond what my small ramp setup that I carry can deal with. I made some 6 foot long "super ramps" out of lumber They are about 15 inches tall at the end. I made them tall enough for his longer wheelbase Bigfoot to be able to use them also. I just need to get up about 11 inches to be level with my RV. They work great. They weight about 55 lbs each so they are staying at that location. I just back up the driveway, deploy the ramps and drive down onto them.

RE: How to secure water fill inlets?

I am going to get rid of my TV antenna. To keep aliens in the CG from sending radioactive mind waves at my RV. After you get rid of the antenna you need to put foil over the hole to keep the radio waves out.

RE: Opinions on the Winnebago View/Itasca Navion?

This is good news. I'm looking at most short B+ rigs, be it a Coachmen Prism, a Navion, a FR Solera, or similar. The FR and Coachmen may take some work for the rough edges, while the Winnebago is definitely a step ahead in build quality as well as documentation. What I want to find is a model with the Onan diesel genset as oppose to the LP gas ones. The reason for this is that I live in Texas, and the diesel would provide a lot more run time. I'm also hoping for a model with the 3.0 V6 since it has more oomph, especially if I hit hilly terrain. I don't know how agile it is, but I plan to run toadless and deal with it. If I really have to, I'll rent a car in the destination town. For some festivals, I will be towing a cargo trailer meant for solar power and additional storage. As for service, I live fairly near a very good M-B place in Georgetown, and a good Freightliner Sprinter place. Towing, most rigs can do 5000 pounds, or more accurately 500 pounds on the hitch. Not awesome, but good enough. Fully laden, the towing capacity of the current View/Navion is around 4k due to the combined weight rating.

RE: Opinions on the Winnebago View/Itasca Navion?

too small to drag a toad. False

RE: Attaching to Fiberglass

Velcro Bruce Adhesive backed velcro doesn't like heat or UV. There are exterior double back tapes available that people use to mount solar panels without drilling. That is some strong stuff.

RE: Thor Axis drivability

We also liked the Axis, but the shower and lav configuration is poorly designed and became the deal killer for us. As I recall, the CCC was not too hot either. But I will say it was fun to drive for the trip we made with it as a demo at CW. Thanks for the reminder. UVW (unloaded vehicle weight). At the Tampa show we looked for stickers and in the past they have not been difficult to find. This year found virtually none which made me wonder if the numbers were very low and they weren't fond of showing them. Don OCCC placards are mandatory by federal law.

RE: HELP! View/Navion stuck between V and G model?

What did you decide to do? Did you buy the 24V? The Wife and I went to view the Winnebago Navion 24V at at recent camping show. However, we walked into the Thor Axis model and liked the layout better than the sprinter chassis class c. It is a class A on a Ford Class C E350 chassis with the V10 gas engine. It sells for nearly $20K less than the Winnebago for a very similar layout. That $20K is a lot of diesel fuel. We have not drove either model yet and scheduled a test drive for next weekend on both models at our local RV Dealer. Has anyone here looked at the same units side by side? Any thoughts or opinions? I made the mistake of driving both a Sprinter and E series back to back. You can see the results below.

RE: Spring supplies

I don't put anything in the tanks. Replaced almost everything with LEDs a couple of seasons ago.

RE: Winnabego View vs Forest River Forester MBS

I'm buying a Forester instead of the View or Navion since the 5 year down the road one sells for more scenario is a financial risk one should not take. They are virtually the same machine and to pay more with today's dollar in the hope and expectation that 60 months from now you will get more does not make financial sense. a) I am not selling in 60 months b) "Virtually the same machine" is a matter of opinion. I crawled around under and on top of FR and WGO RVs looking at the quality of engineering and build. I formed my own opinion.

RE: Front View Camera-anyone else use one?

As for the Swoop and Squat insurance fraud thing around here you also get a ticket for not stopping in time when that happens. A camera showing what happened might help in court. That would be 100% correct without a camera! The assumption is that you were following to closely or not paying attention. Very hard to prove your case without a camera. This is why I have one, way too many times when towing on two lane roads six cars decide they all want to get around you as a passing lane ends!! Needless to say they really have to slow and squeeze to get in front of you. I will state on two lanes I go with the flow of traffic, be it the posted limit or five or so over. Another issue is parking lots. The default position by insurance companies can be 50% fault in parking lot accidents unless there is compelling evidence otherwise. I got in one a while back and my insurance carrier (which was the same as the other party) tried that on me. Fortunately I had a signed note by the other party admitting fault and a witness. A camera would have worked just as well. I did get burned many years ago when I was backed into. Other party claimed I ran into them and the driver/passenger swapped sides too (I presume the actual driver was unlicensed). A camera would have caught all of it.
