RE: Life expectancy of RV Air Conditioners

The original Duo-Therm A/C's on the 20 year old Class A we sold last year were still working fine. I did replace the start/run capacitors on both with hard start caps a few years ago. The only other maintenance has been normal cleaning. The analog thermostats were replaced with digitals a couple of years ago, but that wasn't due to any failing on the part of the A/C's.

Comcast, Time Warner Cable deal dead...

"Comcast Corp. said Friday that it's ending its $45.2 billion merger agreement with Time Warner Cable, scrapping a giant deal that ran into stiff opposition from consumers and a likely veto from federal regulators." Comcast, Time Warner Cable nix $45B merger deal

RE: Handy Hints, Gadgets, Products & Gizmos

Hi There, new to forum and love this topic. I have copied and pasted a lot of the wonderful tips, gadgets etc from this forum. Does anyone use any apps for finding campgrounds etc. I came across the Allstay app, wondered if anyone could provide any feedback. Thanks, Nerissa Welcome to the forum! On my Android phone, I have the RVParky, Good Sam, KOA, and Passport America apps. All have been useful at times.

RE: Atwood stove

What model stove is it? Some of the older controls used a mercury filled temperature sensor that is no longer available. The popular 1730 and 1731 models are a couple of the problematic ones. The model number is R-W1731BBP. Unfortunately, that model uses the obsolete 56114 oven control. Unless you get lucky and find an RV shop that still has one tucked away on a shelf, you're out of luck as far as I know. There is no direct replacement for it.

RE: Generator won't turnover from inside motorhome

When this same issue occurred on our previous coach with a 7KW Onan Marquis generator, I found the remote wiring harness had butt connectors about 12 inches along the wires from where they entered a plastic wirewrap at the generator end. One of the connectors had corroded enough to separate from the wire. I replaced all of the butt connectors with soldered and shrink wrapped connections, and had no further problems. Also, a close look at the A1 board traces will show that the remote connections are simply paralleled with the on board switch connections. If the on board switches work correctly the board is good other than a possible damaged trace or connection, both easily remedied without an expensive board replacement.

RE: Question for people that live in the land of snow

On the few occasions we've winterized the coach while staying at our Adirondack cottage through the Christmas/New Years holidays (most of the time we stay in the coach), we de-winterize a day or two before we head south, fill the water tank, and just keep the heat on until we reach warmer weather for our own comfort. We've never had a serious problem with frozen water lines even at sub-zero temps. If there's still a few below freezing nights when we come back for spring clean-up, it doesn't matter since we'll have the heat on anyway, but I could blow the lines out if needed.

RE: TPMS in Class A Motorhomes

I see no reason for the government to get more involved in my RV experience then they are. What happened to pre trip inspection and checking your tire pressure during and after your travel? It would seem to me this system is designed for drivers that don't do the proper maintenance or pre trip checks. I would never depend on a government mandated gadget for my safety. JMHO. Aftermarket TPMS is designed for drivers that are concerned enough about safety to monitor their tire pressures and temps while underway, as well as before starting out. NHTSA mandated TPMS expands on that. Government mandated seat belts and airbags are not a replacement for safe driving, but they sure are life savers when that's not enough to prevent a crash. TPMS helps cut down on tire related crashes.

RE: TPMS in Class A Motorhomes

I have the TST TPMS installed on our coach and toad, and haven't had any issues with sensor leaks. I have been alerted to a tire puncture and a sticking brake caliper though. The NHTSA TPMS regulation only requires TPMS' on vehicles under 10,000 lbs without dual wheels. Unless that requirement changes, I wouldn't expect to see them on other size vehicles as standard equipment unless there's enough customer demand.

RE: An observation on WAZE app

I dropped the Waze app awhile ago for pretty much the same issues. It just wasn't giving me enough to earn it's keep.

RE: KOA app for android

I have the KOA, Good Sam, RVParky, and Passport America apps on my phone. All of them have been handy at one time or another for finding accomodations.

RE: Insurance

I switched from Allstate to Progressive for our motorhome insurance several years ago. Progressive gave me better coverage at about half the price. Our cars and cottage are still insured with Allstate though, since the price difference was very small and Progressive would not bundle our cottage with the cars.

RE: Hagerstown-Antietam Battlefield KOA, Williamsport, Maryland

We haven't stayed there for a couple of years, but as said, the roadway to the park is a narrow country road. That said, we had no problems getting in or out with our coach, even passing a DP going the other way one time. Traffic on the road is very light, so most visits we had the road to ourselves.

RE: sattlelite

I would like to put a dish on the roof but i have a rubber roof.I am a little worried about drilling hole in it for this purpose.How should i go about it.Is it ok to use this dicor sealant and drill holes or would i go about it in a different way since it is rubber? Unless you need a hole to route the wire(s) through the roof, there's no drilling needed on your rubber roof. Just run a bead of Dicor around the perimeter or under the feet of the dome and screw it down as described earlier. Then add more Dicor to cover the screw heads. I currently have seven antennas mounted on my coach's rubber roof, with five of them sharing the same weather tight wire access point. All of them are sealed with Dicor or equivalent, and have never had a leak.

RE: sattlelite

The problem with the carryout models is if its raining you would get soakin wet from having to take it out and i really couldnt see myself lugging it to the roof everytime i wont to use it. The portable domes rarely need to be put on the roof. They can be placed wherever they have a clear view of the southern sky, making them much more flexible than a roof mount dish. Most folks deploy their portable dish on arrival at their site and stow it again at the end of their stay.If you set them down outside the rig someone will steal it dont you think? One may have been stolen somewhere, but I've yet to see it mentioned on any of the RV forums I frequent. All of the portable domes have some sort of arrangement for locking them to a post, tree, etc., if theft is a concern. Most don't bother with it.

RE: golf cart

Perhaps trade in the cart for a mobility scooter that's intended for the disabled? That would likely be more acceptable to them.

RE: Patriots Day

I think the Boston Marathon has grown to overshadow Patriots' Day (officially "Patriots' Day" in Massachusetts and Wisconsin and "Patriot's Day" in Maine) in the eyes of the public. More so of course, in the last few years. I worked for a MA based company for about 10 years, and even though I lived and worked in NY, we still got the MA state holiday off.

RE: Have You Ever Tripped the 50 amp Breaker at the PED ?

We have tripped a 50 amp pedestal breaker, but since it occurred almost immediately after hooking up with a minimal draw, I was sure it was a faulty breaker. I reported it to the office, and since it was late in the day, I told them we were ok for the night using the 30 amp outlet. The next day the breaker was replaced, and we had no further issues.

RE: sattlelite

Before doing that I'd suggest looking at some of the carryout models. We presently use the Winegard G2. See previous post re this model.The problem with the carryout models is if its raining you would get soakin wet from having to take it out and i really couldnt see myself lugging it to the roof everytime i wont to use it.
