RE: Dealer hourly rate

That is totally insane to pay an RV tech that much. I thought $60 an hour was outrageous. You are not paying the tech at a dealership. You are paying the dealer. People forget that a reputable service facility has other expenses and overheard such as unemployment taxes, FICA taxes, advertising expense, liability insurance, employee benefits, utility bills, and on and on. Rather than ragging on the service industry, let's talk about attorney fees.............

RE: Lowpoint drain question

Either a defective valve or the valve is plugged with de rise, many times plastic shavings from the water tank manufacturing process.

RE: Fogged up window repair

Automotive windows are laminated glass. Meaning two this pieces of glass with a sheet of plastic between them. Whennthey start to fog it indicates a failure. The only cure is a new wild shield Only the windshield in an auto or MOTORhome is laminated. Side windows are safety glass which, when broken, breaks into small pieces that don't have sharp edges.

RE: Dry ice and Dometic fridge

And why not just turn on the fridge the day before you leave on gas or electric?

RE: Tell me your opinion about rear kitchens

Loved the one in my Springdale because it opened up the living area from slide-out to curb window and gave me a wrap around kitchen counter. Would buy another next time.

RE: Now why cant Winnebago make a motorhome like this - in a 25'

Beam me up, Scotty. There is no intelligent life on this thread!

RE: Now why cant Winnebago make a motorhome like this - in a 25'

here Obviously the OP has no information skills. And I guess that some lack reading and comprehension skills since your link wasn't for a 25' foot coach which is what the OP asked for, Mikey.

RE: thermally conductive epoxy

It is not epoxy. It is a heat conducting grease or compound. They use it on heat sinks and transistors so Radio Shack should carry it. That being said, I have never run across it being used for an RV water heater Thermodisc application.

RE: Worried about a/c failing and dogs cooking

Some are not worth responding too....I don't place the responsibility of my pets on anyone except myself. Many nay sayers simply believe all dogs bark, all owners are irresponsible so ill match your 40 years with my own! For 35 of those years we've traveled with dogs, and yes, that includes tent camping. The whole idea of this thread was to suggest ways to come as close to assuring the well being of pets hence the suggestions of cellular based temp alarms, web based heat alarms and any other means to gain a bit of confidence in leaving the pets for a determined set of time. I would have no greater expectation of any of my fellow RV'ers doing anything about a power outage for my dogs sake opposed to the same group of rv'ers watching the Rv burn to the ground knowing that dogs were inside. Some rv'ers think of no one or any living thing But themselves....Pet people tend to gravitate towards like minded groups...those that travel with pets! Soo don't worry your weary little heads, I for one wouldn't think of asking a non pet owning neighbor picking up a phone to help out another rv'er. My Gawd! First, I never stated that "all" dogs bark nor that all dog owners are irresponsible. I base my observations from my own experience dealing with some that are. Second, others, including myself, do take responsibility for unattended pets. It is the humane thing to do for any living creature. In fact, we had a coach burn in my park a few months ago due to a defective Norcold fridge. The first thing us non-dog owners did was force open the door to be sure no one was inside including pets. One doesn't need to be a "pet person" to have a heart. So before you accuse anyone, especially me, of thinking only of myself, know who you are dealing with first, sir. Those that know me here for the many years I have been posting, know of my integrity and concern for others including pets. Now "Gawd" you have yourself a nice day. :R

RE: Worried about a/c failing and dogs cooking

I have met many dog owners that treat their dogs like their children which is fine. In fact, some responders in this thread may do just that. Now seriously, would you leave your human children in a closed up trailer with the hope that all the stars are properly aligned and nothing will go wrong while you are gone? I have camped for well over 40 years. I now manage an RV park. My air conditioners have sometimes failed for one reason or another and power outages in RV parks do occur including in my park. So if you are comfortable abandoning the "children" that you so dearly love and can then live with yourself if the worse does happen, then go for it. As far as the barking goes, if you read the rules and regulations that many facilities have, you will see that one of the common rules is not creating a nuicence to other campers and sorry, a dog that constantly barks while it's owner is gone is a nuicence and I can't begin to tell you the number of owners that swear their dogs don't bark when they are gone when in fact they do. And one more thing. My park is across the street from the ocean. A few years ago after the big quake in Japan, we had a Sunnami alert and we evacuated the park. You see, there are some unexpected circumstances that can happen and I'm sorry but it's not fair for irresponsable pet owners to place responsibilities for the well being of their pets in someone else's hands. During that alert, there were a number of RVs that had to be forced open in this area so pets could be removed because their owners were out having a good time. So that "slight" chance mentioned in this thread that something could happen, does happen.

RE: Worried about a/c failing and dogs cooking

Many RV parks, including the one I manage, has a rule regarding pets unattended and this includes inside A RV. I can't tell you the amount of times guests have done this and their dogs bark the entire time the irresponsible owners are gone. Power outages are another concern with these owners.

RE: New A/C is here. Now, how to get it on the roof?

Before pulling and pushing the new unit up the ladder, remove the shroud from the AC. It has to be removed anywho for installation and you don't want the rope or the person pushing from the bottom exerting any force upon the shroud, which is not very strong and could easily crack. Very good point. Neither Coleman or Dometic/Duo Therm units have to have the shroud removed for installation. All connections for wiring as well as the four mounting bolts are installed inside the coach.

RIP Colossus!

Colossus roller coaster at Six Flags Magic Mountain in California made its final run tonight. Once the largest wooden roller coaster in the world taking up nearly 10 acres and a mile long, it is being torn down for something new. It was a great ride.

RE: Shurflo Pump silencing kit

No nipples needed. Home a depot sells braided water lines with 1/2" swivel connectors on each end. They are used for toilet supply lines.

RE: Why buy out of California

Some of you guys from out of state love to bash California taxes without really knowing what they are. For starters, the sales tax is 8% to 9% in most jurisdictions. How does that compare to YOUR own sales tax? I know Oregon does not have a sales tax. Registration cost on a new vehicle is about 5/8 of one percent plus roughly another $100, and then decreases every year. To put it in context, if you buy and register a $50K motor vehicle or RV in California, the registration fee will be around $412 for the first year. How does that compare to YOUR state? Those of you that live in states without sales or income taxes end up paying much higher property taxes and other fees to make up for the difference. There is no free lunch...and no state is perfect. And I bet some people that skirt the California fees are the same ones that complain about poor roads and services being cut. Just saying........
