RE: Dicor

Check out Eternabond. We started using this 2 years ago, and through tons of snow on roof sitting, lots of rainy days etc not a sign of a leak since. Not cheap for us to do every seam, edge of all furniture fixed to RV (ladder fix, antenna, air vents, skylights etc), and even cut very thin to go around the windscreen that was leaking forever before hand and now amount of resetting the screen stopped it. Just saying, FWIW. We are Eternabond junkies now, even using it to block up holes around stucco where pipes enter buildings etc. . I agree...do Dicor every year or every other year...do Eternabond once... but clean good either method

RE: How to avoid driving thru Phoenix, AZ?

Little longer route, but a lot easier in my opinion...and the way we go to Tucson...take the 10 to the 8 then to the 85 to the 303 to the 17...

Turn signal with lights on

On a recent trip, I had an issue with my turn signal blinking (at least in the coach). It was getting a little cloudy and dark so I changed the lights from the running light to the normal headlights. a little while later I went to change lanes to pass and turned on the turn signal. It stayed a solid green and did't blink. I turned the headlights back to the running lights and it blinked as normal. What should I be looking for? thanks

RE: Boise to Phoenix

We have always taken HGW 93 to Ely, then 6 and 318 to Ash Springs and back on 93. Then we avoid Las Vegas by going through Lake Mead National Park. How is that road thru lake Mead NP

RE: Boise to Phoenix

If want to avoid hectic then you should avoid the entire Phoenix area. We actually go into Sun City west. but man SLC is as bad or worse than PHoenix

Boise to Phoenix

There are two routes from Boise to Phoenix. One is 93 south out of Twin Falls, Idaho, while the other route is I-84 to I-15 through Salt lake city. Each has their own characteristic...93 is single lane, narrow in spots and no cell signal in spots. I-15 through SLC is freeway but busy and hectic to drive for about 90 miles from Ogden to Provo. Couple of questions... 1...has anyone taken the cutoff on the I-15>>67>>215>>i-15. and IS it any less hectic during mid morning early afternoon times. 2...which route do most of you prefer

RE: 101 degree heat & 30 amp air-conditioning

You do NOT have a a/c problem. 102 degrees less 15 is all you're gonna get. Keep that fan off...as all that does is make things hotter. Hmmm. 30' TT here with a single 13.5K AC 30A unit. Recently in Moab, set up in shade, but where daytime temp high was 108. I am able to keep the inside at 74 degrees. Granted, I have completely resealed the inside on my trailer's AC unit with aluminum ducting tape and it made a very big difference in the ability for my trailer to keep cool. Prior to doing the reseal, it was very hard to keep the trailer under 86 degrees when it was 90-95 out. OP, do yourself a favor and watch these short videos that gives an explanation why a lot of RV AC units do not cool very well. I really thought I was in need of a new AC unit but started doing some research and found multiple videos showing RV AC units are poorly sealed where gaps only continue to get worse over the years. A little time and a very inexpensive roll of aluminum duct tape can help a lot. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_GNjfFpTGU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AzdQoDublzs I will check them out..thanks

RE: 101 degree heat & 30 amp air-conditioning

Forget the fantastic fan. Was the RV a cool 72 at the start of the day parked or did you roll in with a hot box? Yes they use some type of Freon but they are sealed like fridge. No ports to add and check pressure. Yes you will struggle with one air. Set it down to 70 or lower overnight to get a head start on the next day. BTW at least check your voltage in the RV is good. We started with a cool box...

RE: 101 degree heat & 30 amp air-conditioning

pull in the slides and cover all the windows it will cool better that way, less space to cool turn the a/c on in the morning right after breakfast, save some watts, put the WH and fridge on LP a few extra watts and an early start 'might' get things cooler AC on early and all shades closed..awning around down except main and since we are golfing I don't leave it out, but comes down as soon as we are back.. Will pull slides in and try that.

RE: 101 degree heat & 30 amp air-conditioning

Does this have the Basement A/C with Dual Compressors like I found when I looked up "Dolphin 5342" on the web? If so, I don't think it can run both on 30A service, and running on one won't cool that big a coach at 102 ambient. I am finding that out.:S

101 degree heat & 30 amp air-conditioning

We are setting in a RV park where the temps today reached 102. The RV park didn't have any 50 amp sites available, so we are set on 30 amp. Had Air set on 76 degrees and current temp in MH is about 88 degrees. Turned fantastic fan on and temp rose to 90.. Do I possible have an air conditioner issue...I just had someone check everything out and said all was working ok...Do these units use Freon or as home units do? thoughts please, and thanks

RE: RV TV Satellite Service W/O Home membership

Best thing about Dish Network is that the signal will be high Def as opposed to DirecTV and Standard Def I have a portable that I can switch providers. Interesting but not true. I have DirectHD both at home and in my RV. Also with 2 DirectTV accounts you can put each one on vacation up to 4 times a year - works great we just put on vacation the one we are not using - one account is always on vacation Why not just have one acct. and take the receiver with you?
