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: 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.

RE: Front View Camera-anyone else use one?

I just took delivery of this one for my regular car. Looks like it will do the job and is small enough to tuck up tight against the top of the windshield behind the mirror.

RE: Annoying smell

Make sure you have liquid in the P traps. Don't forget the shower drain which is a common one to go dry from lack of use.

RE: Front View Camera-anyone else use one?

I bought one after having too many people cut me off in the RV. If I run over one of them I want full documentation of what led up to the wreck. Within a month of having the camera in the RV I caught a wreck between two other vehicles. I barely saw it in my peripheral vision but the camera caught it all. I will be putting them in more vehicles.

RE: Winnabego View vs Forest River Forester MBS

I was able to copy and print all the wiring, plumbing and individual parts list for our 2013, before we picked it up in April '13. I've seen 2014 printouts online also... No such luck for my 2011. The folks that service the RVs are irritated by it too from what the WGO support person told me. Were did you find a 12 volt wiring diagram? I don't see one for later years on the site.

RE: How difficult is it backing a 8ft trailer behind Mercedes B+

I have an MB based RV and had a front hitch fabricated/installed for this situation.

RE: Winnabego View vs Forest River Forester MBS

As owners of an older Winnebago I can tell you that we really appreciate the information available on their website and the support you get if you call. To be able to get at the parts list and schematics and even the original brochure of our 2008 has been wonderful. We certainly didn't see documentation like this available in other brands when we were shopping (nor with our other campers). Unfortunately, when the economy tanked WGO quit publishing schematics on line so there is a lack of them for later model RVs (at least for mine). The tech folks on the other end of the phone however are very helpful.

RE: Diesel vs Propane Generator

Chuckhm What was the cost of the propane generator? Second dealer said you are much better running you generator on your diesel as it runs quieter, and save your propane for the other appliances that need propane. Cost of diesel option was about $4500 Do your own research on whether a diesel is quieter. Have them fire them both up and listen for yourself. DO NOT take the word of the salesman. Listen to them outside and inside the RV under conditions you will likely be using it. I seldom use the AC so that isn't a big issue for me. Your needs may be different.

RE: Staying Warm

Yes, you can either plugged in or dry camping. We RV in sub freezing temps. There are lots of tricks to make life easier in cold temps. Search the forum and you will find lots of info.

RE: 2015 Itasca Navion Battery Problems

That is way too short. I can leave mine for a month. You have a current draw that needs addressing. In the mean time you can use the battery disconnect to help preserve it. See your MB owners manual for location. Mine is next to the throttle pedal.
