RE: power leveling jacks

Effy's post... LOL.... Jacks lift the rig off the ground no problem. The problem is they don't handle side force. The rear wheels limit or prevent the this. The side force puts the jacks in a bind and they will not retract. Worst case, the ram bends and will never retract. It takes some heavy equipment and $$$ to get the rig high enough to get under it to remove and replace the jacks. I have seen this happen more than once. The people who write the manuals know what they are doing.

RE: 2016 Class A Ford with 6 Speed Trans

Glad to hear he got stopped in time and was not hit from behind. The engine may have died because the fuel moved to the front of the tank away from the fuel pump inlet.(The fuel pump will suck air into the line and the engine will die) A super hard stop will do that, as well as moving anything not tied down inside. Good to hear Ford is working to improve the V-10 installation.

RE: Battery door on 2005 georgie boy pursuit

I have the same thing on my rig. The tabs are held in place by Barrel locks. You need a locksmith to make a set of keys for you. This setup is used on many RVs and has been around for years. Whoever sold you the MH should give you all the keys! You use the key to unlock the door and use the tabs to pull the door open.

RE: Bottom Electric Step Flex

Posted By: krivanj on 01/18/16 06:44am I will mention that on my steps, I only have two, the manual explains about two stops under the stairs that can be adjusted with wrenches to keep the steps steady when down. Mine are Kwikee and this may only be available its two step systems. When I did this, the steps went from wiggly to rock solid. The Kwikee step manuals can be found online. Try the above first.....Works for me. I have three steps.....Four stops. Two on each side on the upper and two on the bottom. Easy fix. While you're at it check the mounting bolts. If the whole step unit is loose there are lot of things you can do, but try adjusting per the manual first.

RE: Valterra Water Regulator A01-1114VP

50-55 PSI should be OK in a 2014 Winne. Pex is used now and is good for that pressure and more. I took a pressure reading from my pump when rig was new (2008) and got 53 PSI and good flow. If you are using a filter (screen) type washer on your water inlet check it for blockage. The full house filter too. Also, shut off valves and "Y" fittings on your hose can restrict the flow.(small hole in ball valve) The inlet check valve can be a problem. (Even on a new rig. Winne uses plastic valves) I have seen people using shut off and "Y" fittings, hose filter, screen washer and full house filter and getting almost no flow. Remember, pressure and flow are not the same. Restrictions in your line will reduce flow but not pressure (When water is not being used, pressure will build up to whatever city or RV park is set at.) That is why we all use regulators. I have seen RV park pressure as high as 160 PSI.

RE: Powergear touch pad on/off light will not come on.

One more thing to try. Remove the control panel. remove the plugs and replace them. This will reset some faults and is easy.

RE: bathroon sink keeps plugging

I have to ask, have you removed the P-trap and looked inside? When you have the p-trap removed you can run your snake down into the gray tank. that should do it. (If you have a wife with long hair you will be surprised what you find in the trap.) Been there, done that. Tell us what you find.

RE: removing bolt with impact wrench

Don't be surprised if you get oil running out when you get the plug out. when Ford services these on the bench it is on it's side and is over full. Good luck.

RE: Under bed storage

No problem. But not great for cooling your beer. Other than that no worries. We found blankets and winter clothes insulate the bed and keep it cooler. I have to tell you we have a lot of stuff under our bed and nothing has been damaged.

RE: Tiffin diesel mysteries..............

On my Cummins. First start of the day idle goes from 800 to 1000 rpm, low battery for 3 - 4 minutes (12 V. engine heater) then up to normal for the rest of the day. I would guess your engine heater control is not turning off the heater as it should.

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.
