RE: Shore cord gets warm/hot!

Is the temperature even the whole length of the cord, or is it warmer near the cord connector, cord cap, plug? If it is hotter near the cord cap, then it might be a good idea to change it. However the problem could be a warn, loose receptacle. Have fun with your new RV. Dusty

RE: propane regulator

With the new over fill protection valves the tank must be hooked up before gas will come out.

RE: Generator fuel pumps

I did that several years ago. And I do NOT do a monthly exercise. I only run my generator when I need it. Dusty

RE: Low clearance pulling a trailer

I tow a trailer 7000 lb. rated trailer. I added a weight distribution hitch, after towing it a couple of times. It is also a anti sway hitch, the spring bars lay on brake type pads, and now the pads are coming loose, unglued. Dusty

RE: Best navagation tool/APP for RV'ers?

I wish there was a volume control much like on a radio. I know you can set the volume, but that's not the same. Dusty

RE: Just received a Ford recall notice for rigs cruise control

We had an 1988 until 2002 Mallard, and I still have a 1989 E-150 van. Have not received a recall on these.

RE: 15 and 30 AMP "Y" Adapter to 50 AMP

If the 50 amp is not on a GFCI then it will work.

RE: Itasca Spirit 24V on Ford 350 Chassis

I am considering buying a 2005 Itasca Spirit 24V on a Ford 350 chassis with a 6.8L V10 engine. Has anyone out there had any experience with this unit? Especially need fuel milage, power for mountian driving or any other thing that I should look out for. This unit has 30,000 miles and looks very good. I have owned 9 RV's but never a motorhome. Thanks We have that same unit but an '02 on an '01 E-350, with 70,000 + miles. No complaints, except I wish it did not have the front over head window, I've covered the inside of it with insulation, and the out side with aluminum tape. I haul my antique Allis tractor with it.

RE: Level

I glued a round/cats eye bubble to the dog house on our class C ford. Works good enough for us.

RE: New to the forum with an old Mallard

It may only have cab air. If you have coach air, the AC unit will be sitting on the coach roof in one of the vents.

RE: Where to find Owner's Manual?

If you want to see what an owners manual for a motor home looks like, I have scanned a manual for a 22' '88 Mallard. Dusty

RE: Bathroom door out of plumb

I'd take it in now and find how long it will take them to fix it. If too long for now, then tell them that you will bring it back latter to be fixed. Dusty

RE: 2000 Bounder with an Intellitec Transfer/Relay issue

There could be a bad joint in a junction box somewhere. What type of wire is on the input of the relay? Do a continuity test between the plug on the end of your shore cord and the input at the relay. Dusty

RE: Inverter question

Most flat screen TV's are 12 volt to begin with. They have what's often called a wall wart, that's on the end of the cord that plugs into the 120 volt wall receptacle. If you look close at that wall wart, it will tell you that it's input is 120v and if the out put is 12v. That cord can be unplugged from the TV. Now just find a new cord that one end will plug into the TV, and the other end will plug into your 12v outlet, and has the same polarity. Dusty

RE: Bad tasting water

In 1988 we bought a new 22' mh, a couple years latter I added a small bladder type pressure tank. This system worked very well. Also we NEVER sanitized the fresh water system, and never had a problem. In 2002 we replaced that mh home with another new mh. Because the bladder tank had worked so well in the old mh I put one in this new mh first thing and we also sanitized it sometime after adding the bladder tank. The water always had a slight bad taste that bothered my dw more than it did me. Last fall before we headed for Florida the winter, I disconnected the bladder tank, you don't need it when hooked to city water. That got rid of the bad taste. I have a new bladder tank that I need to get hooked up before we leave next week for a 2 week vacation, where we will be using the pump most of the time. Dusty

RE: Interior Wall Restoration, Looking for Some Ideas !/?

Not sure but I believe that the walls are covered with vinyl covered paneling. You might want to replace the paneling. Dusty

RE: In-dash air conditioner - Worth converting or fixing?

When the sun shines on the windshield, it heats the glass and the glass radiates infrared heat into the mh. To counteract this turn your defrosters on. The AC runs when the defroster is on, this will cool the windshield. Dusty

RE: wfco 8845 converter ?

I replaced my original charger with a 3-stage charger many years ago. I've found with the 3-stage, my batteries use much less water, and we mostly dry camp. And the batteries do charge faster, so I don't need to run the generator as long. Dusty
