Highway West Vacations

Does anyone know about this company? Never heard of them before. Pulled into Ocean Side RV park (Oregon) and noted the park had a new owner. The big shock was the price....WOW. Location, location, location. They really milk this money cow. But the place is full. Whatever people will pay, once anyway. Talked to other campers and most will not be back. The place is run down and costs too much. Just too bad. I will not be surprised to see Condos replace this park.

RE: Just Found This out About Driving into Canada from the US..

Although I have had the Canadian Non-Resident Insurance Certificate (the 'yellow card') in the past in recent years both of my insurance companies (USAA (car) & Progressive (RV)) have said it's no longer needed and they don't supply it any more. Ditto, My insurance, State Farm says the same Same for PEMCO

RE: Towing fuse box location

I have a 2008 Winne Destination and had the same problem. You need to find the Freightliner Aft fuse and relay box. I found mine in the compartment with the power cord behind a panel that does not look removable. It was a real bear to get access. I made an access door in the panel before replacing the panel. What you are looking for is a covered box with many cable plugs going to it. It is the same as the one inside the (large) forward fuse box. Use care removing the panel if you have 12 volt circuit breakers in the compartment. (The aft fuse box is below) Returned after dinner>>>>>>> I think the post below nailed it. At least, I hope so for your sake. A lot easier than what I went through. I know people (Dealer shop) tapped into the MH lights because they could not find the fuse box. Good luck.

RE: Winnebago basement air

Basement A/C Does it really cool quicker? No. Is it quieter? Oh yes. Is it easy to work on. You bet. No climbing on the roof. Is it installed on new units? No.

RE: how to keep tow car cleaner

I also use Protect-a-Tow. Works great. Got it before Alaska trip. I was surprised how well it kept the toad clean. Simple to use and stores as a small package. I previously used a windshield cover. Protected the glass but that's about all.

RE: dripping sound in shower,?

Don't know what your rig is, but I had the same problem with a 2000 Winne Adventurer. I had a single control valve and a shut off on the shower head. What happened was water was on at the control valve and shut off at the shower head. We removed the round cover around the control valve and found the plug in the bottom of the single control valve was leaking. Some pipe tape and a wrench fixed it. Hope this helps.

RE: RV mirror

Ryder Fleet Products. Exact replacements, fast shipping, and best of all, great price. Been there done that. The roads in Baja sure are narrow.

RE: 20 amp service question

You need to tell us about your rig and A/C size. Most times you can run one A/C, but little else. No extension cords. Monitor voltage.

RE: Amazing things some folks do

I do believe in color coding also. When my water hose starts to age, I mark both ends with red tape and it becomes the black tank flush and stinky slinky rinse hose. When replacing my water hose I make sure it has good solid brass fittings. That makes it much easier to hook up with no leaks. Another thing I started doing a few years back is using a pump spray bottle filled with bleach solution on the camp spigot before hooking up my hose. I have seen dogs lick tall spigots and the short ones get no respect at all.:)

RE: How long until your holding tanks are full?

When you bought it the indicator showed that the black water tank was half full? The previous owner most likely let the black tank sit and go dry. The solid waste (aka Poop) is now like concrete. It will take some time, water, and soap to clear it out. Liquid Tide soap is a good wetting agent. Never use any drain cleaners, they will damage plastic tanks, rubber seals...$$$. Dump...Fill with water and soap, let sit, drive with a few good STOPS, dump. Then start over. It may take a few times. (A CLEAR hose fitting will let you see what progress you are making.):p (By the way, the chemicals sold at RV stores and walmart are not any better than just soap....Just $$$ down the drain :) Been there done that....Guess what problems my kids bring to DD to fix?

RE: Slide locks 2012 Winnebago Journey

Check to see if your slide has two motors. If it does, the FWD one may not be running. I would check that first. Read your manual for alt extend info. The Winnebago website has manuals and parts drawings you can download...Will show where motors and locks are located.) Be glad it is broke in the closed mode. (you can drive it to the shop if needed) Let us Know what you find, please.

Water Filter Replacement O Rings

Just had my MH in the shop. Had the fresh water dump valve and flex line replaced. To do this they had to remove the water control panel (valves, inlet, and filter Assy.) to run the new flex line. The Good News...The valve can now be opened and closed with ease. The Bad News...The "O" ring from the filter was lost. Try to replace on the weekend...NO WAY!:M Dealer and shop closed. Camping World will order (Package of 10 @ $16 +shipping?) So no help there. I packed the filter "can" around from RV stores, Home Depot, Wal-Mart, etc.,etc. Trying to match the "O" ring groove in the "can". Ended up with a Culligan part. From Farm Co-Op. Just a little bigger around, but I was able to FINESSE (as in craftiness & maneuvering) it in place. Then I was able to flush out the red stuff and refill with bleach added to the water, let stand then flush and refill. Then I went on to check out the water heater, pump etc. Ended up working later than I had wished, but us old guys can do that if we want. Today, Monday, went back to the Winnebago Dealer's shop. I was armed with the part numbers from the build parts list. They ran the number and that was what they had also. They had that part, sound good. I hope so. Free is a fair price considering. Will install with new 10" filter cartridge in the morning. SHURflow brand...Winnebago part numbers Filter Assy. 155482-01-01A "O" Ring 155482-01-700 It seems that many people have a problem getting this "O" ring. Used on many Winnebago MH. Called SHURflow and they said that Camping World was the ONLY source. As I said, CW does not stock but will order. They do sell complete filters, DUMB!:S SEE YOU ALL>>>>DOWN THE ROAD (yes I'm yelling):D

RE: Wiper Arm Parts

Try ebay..."wiper arm cover" I found many pages of 50 each, wiper parts. Your photo looks like a Porsche 911--928 cover. You could use duct tape :) But that will give you a place to start. Good luck On edit: http://www.veurinksrv.com/--monaco-factory-direct-parts?gclid=CMO_75-iscQCFcRafgodaQ8AKw

RE: Check Valve Replacement Advice

The valves are under the entertainment center. Open door, remove side-wall and you are at the back of the water heater. Upper and lower check valves. Been there done that. (We are on the road so can't send photos) Good luck
