RE: Yellow stains from suction cups shower walls

From the description it's not a stain but areas that have not been sun bleached or in other words shadows. Isn't much you can do beyond resurfacing the walls and tub. Maybe one other contractor services that can repaint a fiberglass tub or shower enclosure.

RE: wiring TV to existing coach speakers

Effy you'll need to test your TV to find out if an amp is needed. Some will have a volume control output but you'll need to check. I guess you don't have a radio/CD player built into the bedroom which would have made this pretty easy.

RE: Overweight Toad?

80+ postings! I'm going to need more popcorn and a refill of my beverage.

RE: wiring TV to existing coach speakers

Get yourself one of THESE and tap into the wires coming from the dash radio to the speakers.

RE: Free ride mods - results after a long trip.

Effy good write up. It's pretty amazing how just a few PSI makes a difference particularly when you get into the lighter rigs like ours. Getting the coach weight checked is the key. I'm a weekender traveler along with one big trip a year. Since my loading for the weekends is pretty static I'll get the weight checked at the start of the season (takes into account all the new stuff added over the winter) and when we hit the road for the summer trip (load up a lot more stuff). Worth the few dollars and the few minutes it takes.

RE: Windshield Shades

Dale, What did you use for the hemline material?? D W is worried about something to withstand the weather and heat. Thanks, DonOff the shelf at Jo-Ann Fabrics extra wide bias tape. Made for a cleaner edge rather than just folding it over sewing a hem line. The material is super easy to sew considering it's more open space than material.

RE: Adaptive Cruise Control

I had one in every vehicle I own, wasn't optional, and can't turn it off, and it lets me know EVERYTHING I'm doing wrong but I still love her.

RE: Overweight Toad?

I think you're living a bit close to the edge. Besides over loading the hitch there's also concern for the coach frame from the rear axle back. Another concern is where you contact the dolly safety chains. Normally most of us just connect to the points provided on the hitch but with the overloading of the hitch if it fails or pulls lose from the coach the dolly and car are going somewhere you don't want them to be. Either get a lighter toad, a newer coach or replace the hitch and beef up the rear frame by boxing it in, additional cross members and a good lawyer on a retainer.

RE: Our first real drive.....

I think you need to plan a trip to Red Bay.

RE: Class A with a Salvage title

A salvage title associated with a failed transmission seems a bit unusual. One would normally associate such with an insurance lose. Although it doesn't appear to have been in an accident. Maybe it was caught in a Northeastern or Sandy and flooded. A VIN trace might disclose a bit more history. As mentioned you could have problems with the new ownership registration plus if you ever intend to sell it. $15K seems OK with the salvage tile if it runs.

Eight years and 38,000 miles and going strong. Stuff breaks and you need to budget for it. Not even NASA get's it right everytime. Also, please unlock your 'CAPS LOCK'.

RE: New Gas Chassis Choices

There really isn't much in the Class A world on the horizon from a 'Major' manufacture who can produce a workable chassis with the economy of scale that Ford or GM can or could have. There have been a few potentials that show up with a one of cassis at the major trade shows been I've not seen anything beyond that. Any start up is going to have very steep hill to climb to get a coach builder to want to take the risk and build on an unproven chassis. Maybe in a few years when new coach sales improve they might be willing to take the risk but I think at the present time it's going to be Ford for a while.

I suspect you might have damaged house battery voltage sensing circuit in the battery control center. This circuit controls the battery disconnect solenoids and the cross connect to get power from the engine. Need to know the manufacture, model and revision number for a better idea what and where to check. One thing to try is next time you lose house 12VDC hit the AUX Start switch (with the engine off) and see if the lights come back on. Really surprised the fridge controller didn't cook and it still operated on LP. Would have been interesting if you had tried to extend a slide (assuming they are electric and not hydraulic).

RE: Hydraulic Stabilizers / Driveway damage

Unless the contractor who poured the driveway used substandard concrete or it's less than minimal thickness for a residential application you should be fine.

RE: Black Water Valve Won't Close

Not completely closing is a whole lot better than not opening which is what one normally reads. Suspect the seal might have come loose and is jamming the gate or as you wrote something from the tank is keeping it open. TP is pretty mushy once wet so probably something a bit harder. Loose a toothbrush or hair comb recently? It a good flush as you wrote doesn't solve the problem removing the valve is probably your only option. Pretty easy once your tank is empty. Four bolts and it's out. If you want to make this really easy just replace it.

RE: road side assistance

Opinions concerning Coach Net and Good Sam will mirror Ford/Chevy, Coke/Pepsi, Ginger/Mary Ann, gas/diesel,,,. Either one should fulfill your needs. You might also have roadside service thru your insurance carrier but be careful depending solely on them. Many are not familiar with the specific requirements for a coach in particular the size and weight and possible distances a repair service will need to dispatch someone. AAA is another provider you must research concerning your needs as a RV owner/traveler. I use Good Sam and have twice called them. Flat tire and a tow. Both time the service, response time, call backs and follow up checks were very good and I have no complaints.

RE: lots of work but looking good........

Excellent work. I remember when the first pics when you brought the coach home. Love the front bumper. If it was a bit bigger you could call it a Cow Catcher.

RE: toll roads

I run the numbers. Tolls, distance, fuel cost and such and will take the most economical route. Travel time is considered but is pretty low on the priority list when planning.

RE: F53 air filter change frequency

Why not an Air Filter Monitor? About the same cost as a filter for a F53. Got it on my wish list.

RE: Jeep or CRV - the search for a toad continues

Surprised no one has mentioned it, but I might have missed the posting, is the Civic four down towable with a lube pump? Plus you know the saying "If Momma ain't happy,,,," need to go with what she is comfortable with. Plus the best toad is what you already own. Two Honda's in our driveway. 05 CR-V with 100K miles and a 98 Accord with over 200K miles. Only the Accord has a base plate, for now. Both have never seen a repair shop or left us stranded with a break down.
