RE: Pump

The higher the flow, the faster the fresh water tank empties and the faster the waste tanks fill.

RE: Leveling a Fridge while on the Road

Hmm, I wonder how long it takes. We had a Mallard for 14 years, we bought it new. We now have a 2003 Itasca we also bought new. Never had a problem with ether refrigerator.

RE: Anyone with a Winnebago view "M" floor plan?

We have an Itasca 24V, 2003, with no bed on the main floor. The couch and dinette will make into a bed.

RE: Engine A/C vs. House A/C

When driving into the sun, the sun heats the wind shield which radiates heat back into the coach. By turning the defroster on and set to cold it cools the wind shield and stops the heat at the wind shield.

RE: Am I seeking the impossible?

We sleep in our cab over bed, I refer to it as the "Crows Nest". I consider a bed room on the main floor as wasted space, especially when you have a short mh. Ours is an Itasca 24V. Dusty

RE: ? about 50 amp campground problem, need master electrician

female plug on pedestal worn out. not making enough contact when load is put on line. Agree. Also you can over load a circuit breaker for a short time without it tripping. Dusty

RE: 48 hours on genny. Electrical shorted now.

I learned something new - what a "marrette" is. Tried finding a definition, that led me to this link clicky Never knew that... Glad you checked it out I did not know either and I'm a retired construction electrician. We always called them "wire nuts". There are a lot of different makes of them. It's a good practice to tug on each wire, after installing a wire nut to be sure all the wires are caught/holding in the wire nut. I was working on a job once making joints/connecting on #12 stranded wire. I had made all the joints in a box and was pushing the wires into the box so I could put the cover on, and a wire came out of a wire nut. I thought that I must of not check that one. I fixed that one then went on to the next box, made all the joints in that box, and made sure that I pulled each one in that box, they were good. But when I pushed the wires into the box another joint fell apart. I found out that the wire nuts that I was using were the poorest ones that I had ever used and they were NOT holding the wires like they should. Dusty

RE: Help with my inverter!

I knew of a Mallard, about 1990, that did not have a house battery. Dusty

RE: Charging solenoid?

We have an '03 Itasca 24V on a Ford E-350. The Solenoid went out when we were on the road. I had a hard time finding it where it was on the mh, and getting to it to change. The front storage boot has a removable back where there a couple of fuses, behind it. Then behind the removable back of the second compartment is a third compartment and that is where is the solenoid is located. Real fun to get to and work on. Dusty

RE: Oil Changes,Where?

For you guys that service your mh yourself. How many of you have removed the plugs and installed grease zerks at the ball joints? And at how many miles on the odometer. Dusty

RE: Propane supply valve is stuck

Best thing to do when filling up with gasoline is to turn off all LPG/propane appliances from inside, no need to turn off the valve at the LP tank. That is only done when filling LP tank. Dusty

RE: running the fridge on lp

Some units have 12 volt electric heaters in the door area for humidity control on humid days. You turn them on and off. They are seldom needed, so be sure they are turned off, they do use quite a bit of power.

RE: Gnerator starting

Try this. From the outside hold the stop switch in, in a few seconds you will here the fuel pump start, keep holding the switch, when the fuel bowl in the carburetor is full the sound from the fuel pump will change, then release the switch, then push the start switch and hold it until the generator is running, not just starts, but running. The start system is designed to hold the start switch until the engine is running. Which is different than we are all used to. Dusty

RE: What extras should I insist on in a new Class C

We spend the winter in central Florida. Our furnace uses up the propane too fast to keep the tank full. A cube heater is always it the way and does not heat all that well. So I installed a toe kick heater with a remote programable thermostat. It's in the wall space under the refrigerator. It's rather quite, and works and heats like a regulator forced air furnace. We are on a meter and pay for our electricity to the electric unity. Dusty

RE: 50 ~ volts in door/doorframe, intermittently

Put a new cord on it. If the problem goes away and stays away, then make an extenion cord out of the old on by putting new ends on it. Sounds to me that you have a bad male cord cap. I cut one open once and the wires are not all that well attached to the prongs. Dusty

RE: Selling Class A to Buy Class C advice

I've read where Winnebago/Itasca, for many years, has the highest % of satisfied customers. Dusty
