RE: Very Scary Tow Car Breakaway

, it is also important to ensure the safety chains/cables are attached to the frame of the car. Probably most of us are guilty of this, myself included. Also not just the car end but at the coach receiver as well. Overly dependent on the hitch and base plate to stay where they are. I think I'll add additional safety cable between the coach receiver and frame along with the base plate to frame to my list. Cheep insurance.

RE: Wash/Wax

The wrap changes everything. As stated by rgatijnet1 you need to talk with the wrap folks on how to approach exterior cleaning.

RE: Broken plastic Atwood hot water heater drain plug

Although an inconvenience just be happy the plug is plastic and not metal. May break easy but just as easy to get out without damaging the water heater tank.

RE: Very Scary Tow Car Breakaway

Fortunately failures of this nature seem to be pretty rare but checking both the coach receiver and base plate doesn't happen as often as maybe it should.

RE: fresh water tank

Cup should work. Drive around a bit to shake it up. Drain, refil for a flush and you should be good to go.

RE: A and E awning

I don't believe you can without basically replacing all the hardware. Very different tensioning system using a cylinders in the arms as opposed to the springs in the tube. Would be cool if someone had a retrofit kit and I would be in the checkout line behind the OP (cost dependant).

RE: Diesel --- front engine -vs- rear engine

If you're asking about a standard class A, more or less it's a gas chassis with a diesel engine. You should gain enough in fuel mileage to off set the fuel cost difference but don't expect much more where comparing to a diesel pusher. If the price is right it's a good option to go with but I would rather wait a year, bank a bit more and then buy a diesel pusher.

RE: Funny noise coming from ?

Check the heat shields around the convertor. Usually the shields are spot welded. Crack a weld and it will make a racket.

RE: New to RVing... need help with fresh water filling

I'm starting to side with the someone screwed something up theory. I have lifted the tank up and I am sure that there are no other inlet openings. So I guess I'm gonna run my own fresh water fill line to the tank and see what happens. Either I'm gonna make it work or instead of a motorhome I will have an arkI'm thinking the same, prior owner alteration. Call it a PO-Alt. Use one of the overflow lines. Install a hose connection with a cap. Add water until it comes out the other line.

RE: alternator not charging

With the rear radiator that direction is blocked so you either access the engine from the bottom, top or sides. There should be a panel in the rear storage bays that you can remove for some access but most engine work is done thru the top via a hatch either under the bed or in the rear closet floor. As mentioned you can run the generator and use the AC to DC convertor to charge the battery when on the move. Depending on the battery control center (aka BCC) you might not need to hold the AUX START switch to feed the chassis battery bank. My coach BCC will charge both my house and coach batteries from either the engine alternator or convertor but yours could be different. Give Tiffin a call Monday. Friendly bunch of folks in Red Bay.

RE: Slides an jacks hydro problems

Your statement "12 volts to the coil and the contacts close so there is also 12v to the pump" might not be correct or I'm misreading it. Could be the contacts have failed and are open. Can you check for power directly at the pump? Then again could be something as simple as the pump has gone to pump heaven after the magic smoke escaped.

RE: New to RVing... need help with fresh water filling

The pump movement when you tug on the line would be correct and yes the pump should have a check valve to prevent back fill when on city water. Any chance of following the lines from the fill valve and the two overflow tubes coming off the tank?

RE: V-10

2006 chassis model year. A quick check is the label for the button on the gear shift. If it reads 'Tow/Haul On' you have the newer engine which included a five speed transmission.

RE: New to RVing... need help with fresh water filling

Double overflow hoses coming off the tank is a bit unusual. You only need one. Can you traces the two lines from the tank to where ever they may originate? I suspect one is the fill. Need to hand over hand trace the lines. Can't explain why the water is going to the gray tank instead of the holding tank. I'm wondering if a past owner added a gray tank flush and rerouted the tank fill to the new tank flush. Know of a few campers that never fill their tank and only camp where they have city water available. If so I would disconnect. To great of a potential for cross contamination. Best to have an air gap between potable and waste systems. Also the 'T' at the pump is probably the city water inlet to your fresh water system. Simplest place to add the 'T' plus ensures when winterizing an owner can remove as much water as possible starting at the source. Good luck and post and update when you find the problem.

RE: Buying a used winnebego what to expect

How many miles are high? Can be a bit subjective. Normally you would like to see use, say 4K for each year but getting into 20+ years at that rate will put you into overhaul time for the power train from that time period. How many miles until you get into major engine and trany issues? Can also be subjective. Prior ownership routine and preventative maintenance will play a major factor in addition to usage. Look for a coach that the owners have maintenance records. Also you're either looking at a carburetor or throttle body single injector. Might be difficult to find someone with the knowledge to service if a problem is beyond your capabilities. Anything else to look for? Lots, in particular are water leaks which will destroy a coach. Soft spots on the roof. floor, interior/exterior walls. Just about everything made of rubber will be suspect for potential failure. Learn how to determine tire age by the codes on the side walls. Get the engine and tranny oil tested. Older coaches can be a diamond in the ruff or a money pit so do A LOT of looking before taking a coach home. Test EVERYTHING including the water system. Consider spending a few $$ to have the coach checked out by both a power train and coach (house side of the rig) specialist. Good luck.

RE: Campground Question

Simple mistake but they made you whole so there really isn't much you can do besides posting poor reviews everywhere you can. Is it worth the effort? To me no but I would probably never return to the CG. Airlines to it all the time bumping passengers and over booking flights. Much more inconvenient and frustrating. One of the many reasons I prefer an RV vacation.

RE: Tire pressures

Your owner's manual pressures are normally based on both the capacity of the axles and the original tire capacity, or in other words, as if you loaded to the maximum capacity of the coach (GVWR). The higher rated new tires will give a bit of a harder ride as the side walls are stiffer due to the increase capacity. Without knowing your actual weights on the axles, or better still each wheel position, you're into unknown territory changing pressures especially reducing the pressure. Drop the pressure too much and you risk potential tire damage and worse yet a blow out. Get the coach weight checked with a full load (including passengers) that you normally take on a trip then cross reference the tire manufacture's chart for the recommended pressure for optimum tire performance and ride comfort. I don't think the ride will improve as much as you may like but it's worth a try.
