RE: Two small modifications - 2007 Itasca Navion

I've wondered if the T/P valve was designed that way so if it opened due to high temperature, it would put the fire in the burner out.

RE: NEMA 14-30R (not 14-30P) to TT-30R?

In VAC terms... WHITE is ALWAYS Neutral GREEN is ALWAYS Ground ANY OTHER COLOR is ALWAYS HOT! ALWAYS use a tester to VERIFY and turn OFF power before playing with it....Dennis Seldom seen but GREY is also always Neutral. Dusty

RE: Sewer Bumper

Our Itasca got rear ended. Dealer fixed it, insurance paid for it. It's made of aluminum.

RE: preferred tire brand

Each his own. I don't care for Michelin. Right now we are running on Firestone.

RE: Roof Racks most have

unless some think they're decorative or something.The look reminds me of a swimming pool ladder. :) Not exactly the look for my taste. http://tweetys.com/images/products/detail/924644.jpg height=300 Some people like to hang chairs and bikes off the ladder. For those people, a full-wall ladder-like rack would be stronger and more versatile. We have a 24' '03 Itasca with a ladder like that, it also has a fiber glass roof. I built a pair carriers, much like roof top carriers for cars but fastened to the fiber glass roof, to carry my 17' Kevlar canoe that weights 47 lbs. I temporally fasten a piece of unistrut to the top flat part of the ladder to drag the canoe up to the roof. Also when we are dry camping and need to add water, we carry it in a 5 gallon bag, then hang the bag from the unistrut so it can drain into tank in the mh. Dusty

RE: Roof Racks most have

You didn't say what type of roof you have. Our mh has a fiberglass roof. I added a carrier for my Kevlar canoe. If you have a fiberglass roof, West Marine has a page on fastening to fiberglass. If you don't find it, I'll try to explain.

Lavatory sink

Someone posted that the hot water flow to their lavatory sink was slow. Ours had been that way for a couple of years. Yesterday I took the faucet off the sink, and took it apart. There is a screen just before the hot and cold valves. on ours the screen on the hot side was about 99% plugged. It didn't look like they would come out without being destroyed, so I sprayed water through them and also used the air hose on them. There are a couple of washer in there that keep the valve from coming apart, they need to be remove before you use a wrench to take the valve assembly out. It works great now, full water flow. Dusty

RE: CL scams

We/I had been looking for a different home for many years. I had 4 things that I wanted in our new, to us, home. After the many years of looking, I found one on, of all places, Craigslist. I had 4 things that I wanted in a new place, we got 3 of the 4. We've been in the new place for 2-1/2 years.

RE: generac generators

As of ~2011, Generac generators were discontinued for RVs. I think there is a market niche available. If someone could make a generator that used EFI, an inverter (so the genset could run at an idle), and perhaps a small battery to absorb load until the engine got up to speed, they would make a mint. Even a generator going with four poles instead of two would be nice (1800 RPM instead of 3600), or using oil pressure instead of splash lubricating. Several years ago I saw a 1800 RPM and also a 1200 RPM, in two different MHs.

RE: Chevy cut away chassis putting gas in

I had the same problem on my 'C' on a Ford Chassis. The filler tube is too small to take gas at 'full open' because the gas rises up in the filler tube and shuts the pump off. So I don't push the nozzle all the way in and don't lock the lever all the way open. It gives me a chance to use their bathroom facilities instead of mine. :) Most places it's posted that someone must keep the nozzle in sight at all times while filling.

RE: What is this fuse and can I use a regular mini in its place?

Probably an auto reset breaker.

RE: Am I going to regret going C

I know that slides add a lot of space, but they also add a lot of weight and weaken the box.

RE: Ford E450 - Inspect / Lubricate U Joints?

What about the tie rods and king pins ? Our E-350 '03 has plugs in them. Dusty

RE: Power Outage

It's a very good practice to turn everything off thats protected by the GFCI before resetting the GFCI. There is a set of contacts in the GFCI and they burn up easy when closed under load. Dusty

RE: '87 Falcon - Sliding storage compartment

I wonder if the slides are like drawer slides and have releases that will let them be removed ?

RE: leveling jacks

We have a 24' Itasca, no levelers. I put a cat's eye/round level on the dog house where I can see it from the driver's seat. Often times I can get the rig level just by moving it around on the lot.

RE: Minnie Winnie 24ft

We have an '02 24' Itasca. It's on an E-350 with the V-10. Sounds like it has the same floor plan. We like it, bought it new in the fall of '02.

RE: Lazy daze 24 FD

We have an Itasca 24' Spirit. We go to antiqut tractor shows, family camp outs, and spend the winter in Florida in it. When we spend most of our time out doors, it's great. If the weather keeps us inside for a week, then it gets to seem rather small. Dusty

RE: House Batteries

Most all mh charge their batteries, both engine and coach/house, while the engine is running. Have a good trip. Dusty
