RE: Yukon river crossing at Dawson.

We crossed with our toad connected and a few cars plus a 40+ foot tour bus next to us. You will not have a problem.

RE: Genset (2016 Tiffin RED PA37) won't start.

Flashing light on the start switch and rapid clicks? Sounds like your fuel pump is priming. When the fuel pressure builds up the starter will kick in. Hold the start switch down longer and it will start...15-20 seconds, That is, if you have more than 1/4 tank of fuel. The fuel tap for the Gene is at about the 1/4 fuel level in the tank. That prevents the Gene from using all the fuel out of the tank.

RE: Garage for Class A

All I can add is a pit so that I could work under the rig. My grease pit has a lip that holds 2x12s to cover it when not needed. Best investment I ever made.

RE: Head light up grades

Question. Did you read the voltage from the back of the socket, with the lamp installed? Lamp must be in place to load the wires and get a true reading.

RE: Condensation in slide corner

Had the same problem with bedroom slide. Used water hose, no leak. Moved MH to covered storage, still had water in the closet(overnight). Used my inspection camera through the light fixture hole and found condensation on the closet roof. Got a small dehumidifier at Wally World, problem solved. Have added insulation put still use the dehumidifier. That keeps the MH fresh and not like an owl's nest. Moved back outside, still no problem.

RE: screen door shade

Had the same problem. I sprayed silicone (slide lube)between the shade and the cover and on the ends of the roller then played with it, till it unlocked. Then it rolled up. Then pulled it out and sprayed the fabric (lightly) and wiped it down. Had to do it again a year later (seems I didn't do a thorough job) It's been great for three years now. Seems that dust and dirt will jam the shade against the cover. I did not try to remove the shade from the cover. I could see that would be a handful. I hope you are talking about a black, smooth fabric shade. If not ???

RE: Front wheel bearings while towing

Ford Explorer front wheel bearings have a high failure rate, under normal driving conditions. I don't think towing had anything to do with it. Some were found to have little or no Lube. Ford almost had a recall. There is a service bulletin. Replaced front bearings and rear bearings and seals on DD's Explorer. (1 Front bearing failed so replaced both. Rear bearing seals leaked, so replaced both) So far so good.

RE: No power from shore or generator, ok on inverter, need help

Have you checked the breakers on the inverter? DW would try to run our microwave with the space heater on. No matter how many times she tried it would knock to power off. The inverter was under the bed and I had to remove a cover to get to it. After a few times I installed a little door to get to the two breakers on the inverter itself. Good luck....Let us know what your fix is.

RE: How do you winterize water heater OUTput pipe?

If you have used air to blow out the system before adding the pink stuff it's not a problem.

RE: Here I go again...

Assuming you have HWH jacks on your Winnebago product and assuming they have not changed since I had one, you may be able to stop this from happening by not shutting the system off at the panel after raising the jacks. Let them time out on their own. Dont know why this works but it was what I was told and it worked for me at the time. X2 Hydraulic fluid expands as it gets warm. This will move the jacks just enough to turn the warning on. After I started letting the system "time out" I had no more problems.(Winne with HWH jacks)

RE: Toad brakes

What is your toad weight? Do you ever get those Temps when just driving the toad? If not, the cable may be (Adjusted) a little too short and applying full brakes before RB lever goes full travel. Especially if you have a large, heavy toad. http://www.readybrake.com/uploads/3/9/4/0/39400577/ready_brute_elite_tow_bar_rb_9050.pdf See "adjusting ready brake cable" page 5.

RE: My RVs Primitive Brain

Sorry to hear about your fan problem. We replaced our electric fan clutch in 2013. A lot of labor involved as I remember it ran about $1,700 all told. They had to remove everything behind the fan to get at it. SORRY! Ours got to the point that it would overheat then the fan would kick in and run all day without a problem. Had it back to the shop two or three times before pinning down the cause. Checked and/or replaced the easy stuff first. (A stuck thermostat will act like that sometimes) One time I left the shop and it started to heat up, turned around and got within a block of the shop and the fan kicked in.(I know now) Left it at the shop over night. In the morning we hooked up the code reader and drove it (Up hills) till it started to heat up and were able to tell, even though the fan was turning it was not moving enough air to cool the engine. If you start it up cool and walk back and you don't feel a blast of air, the fan clutch is not engaging. (I now know) The shop I used was Kenworth Northwest a Cummins repair shop. I use them for oil changes, fuel filters and Lub. They work on a lot of motor-homes and work with MH owners and truckers till it's fixed. (Not in the same world as the Winnebago dealer shop) SORRY...I feel your pain. Good Luck

RE: No power to radio

Did you bump the "salesman switch" when going in or out while fueling?

RE: Water Works Question

What you are seeing is normal! Shut pump off when filling tank. Check your manual. You can run the pump when hooked up to city water if the tank has water in it. For more pressure, like taking a shower. (If city water pressure is low) But not while filling the tank. You should not use a "garden hose" on your MH as they are not designed for potable water(Yuck) and may not withstand pressure for long periods. Use an RV hose designed for that purpose.

RE: any good advice about towing a car

I have toad Saturns for years. Never a problem. That said. I have used a few rattle stoppers on the receiver and found that most do not work that well. The main reason is that most depend on the rattle stopper to take the load not the receiver itself. This does not work very long. The best and most effective hold the hitch down against bottom of the receiver just as the hitch down pressure does. The reason for posting this is, when I towed a friends car on a tow dolly I found that any play in the hitch would allow the tow dolly to try to fish tail. The tail wagging the dog. (Not my dolly, so did not try to fix) You may want to consider a rattle stopper when towing. Google: StowAway-Tightener-Anti-Rattle-Stabilizer

RE: Renovating my Rig

First of all, thank you for your service! If it was me, I would beef up the wiring(12 Gage min.) and install/replace a few new (good 20 amp) outlets for running back up space heaters, electric fry pans, micro wave and DW's hair dryer. When needed. Free standing oil filled heaters are safe and cheap to use. Check out the gas heater and make sure it is in perfect condition. A bad gas furnace will let you down when you need it most and can kill you in the bargain. Don't take chances. Make sure you have plenty of ventilation, especially when cooking with a gas stove. You also need to control the humidity, venting will help. Best of luck and keep in touch.

RE: My RVs Primitive Brain

We have the same Winne DP as you. Had the coolant level sensor fail while still under warranty. Was told it was common failure. It was a bear to replace. It is in the front side of the tank over the radiator. The mechanic at Freight Liner forgot the O ring the first time. So he got to do it again. When we got back from our trip @#$%^. Would I replace sensors?......Yes!

RE: Electrical Problem

Breaker on your inverter? Mine has two, one for some outlets each side. DW keeps using the microwave with a space heater running. (Power feeds through the inverter even when on external power)

RE: Shurflo water pump won't shut off..

Sounds like your pump needs to be primed with some water. The pump may be sucking air. If it can't pull water from the tank it will keep running and not shut off. Try taking a fitting loose to bleed the air out. Works for me. Once you get water in the pump it will work OK and build up pressure and shut off. (It sounds like it's just sitting there at an idle because it's pumping air not water)
