RE: Running lights

Gary, your front and rear marker lights should be on the same circuit from the headlight switch. I would start at the front marker lights and see if you have 12 volts to the lights themselves. Use jumper cables or a line from the battery ground terminal to verify power. If you have not power to them, start trying to trace the wiring down by going behind the TV, as not many manufactures insulate the front caps very well, and you may be able to see/trace the wire from there. It probably runs down the drivers side pillar to the switch. You have a large RV dealer in your town. If you go to the service department and explain what you have and are trying to do, they may be able to give you a print-out of the wiring for you MH. thanks I will do that...also the rear marker lights do work...that is ONE of reasons I was/am confused

Running lights

My running lights at the top of the MH in front are not working. The ones in the back do. I can't locate a fuse specifically listed for that. Any suggestions on the reason? :h

RE: Under the slideout

I had that happen on a prowler 5th W. It had 1/2" pipe about 4" long mounted horizontally like rollers on the outside edge of the camper to support the slide as it rolled out. There were 4 of them. They were literally a roughly cut piece of pipe slid on a 1/4" x 6" bolt mount between 2 "L" brackets. The fiberglass obviously wasn't bonded well enough to withstand the weight of the slide on the "rollers". It eventually made cracks in the fiberglass. I ended up replacing the whole slide floor but not because of the cracks. While doing that I re-worked the rollers and bolts so they rolled easier. Used a smaller pipe on 3/8" bolts and rounded the edges. I didn't put fiberglass back on the bottom of the slide I used a woven black plastic material that is used on the bottom of some brands of campers. Worked great the rest of the time we had it. Our '01 Jayco which we bought new and still works great, has a solid plastic (probably nylon) support about 3" wide and the full length of the 12' slide. Much better than the rollers. That is exactly what mine was, a 3” wide white plastic, but on the depth (inside to out). There is one more that looks like maybe glue loosening. Not sure what to do on it...knocking on where it came off sounds solid...

Under the slideout

I am getting delamination in a couple of spots (3 inch wide strips) on the bottom of slide in a couple of spots. Not wet...any thoughts and what may need to be done?

RE: Az to Idaho

Go via Vegas and then 93 through Nevada - it's a bit shorter and avoids SLC all together. This is the way I typically go, but even here the traffic is getting heavier and the drivers more impatient in passing a MH doing 60

RE: Az to Idaho

We drive this route several times a year--we live in Boise and my parents live in the Phoenix area. In our opinion, the traffic thru SLC is worse than thru Vegas. I swear they have been working on one end or the other of that part of the freeway for the past 12 years. So be prepared for construction! (But we haven't driven it since November of last year) Traffic does seem to be lighter on the weekends, Sundays in particular. We don't bother with the 215 bypass--it's about the same traffic wise. We try to always avoid afternoon rush hour! that has been my reason for avoiding...thru Vegas 25 miles or so...thru SLC 90 miles when you include provo to ogden

RE: Flex Seal, Flex Tape and Flex Glue...

For tape applications Eternabond only For horizontal level applications Dicor self leveling sealant only I do not ever want to have to think if the product installed is going to work or not or even worse discovering it did not work! These two products are proven to do the job Dave Well maybe

RE: Flex Seal, Flex Tape and Flex Glue...

I've used flex seal and flex tape om my last camper and now on our new camper. If the area it is used on is cleaned properly it holds real well. Never had any problem with it. And this is what I have found with anything I do on the MH...It has to be cleaned and then cleaned again before applications!!:C

Az to Idaho

Thinking about going back to Boise via SLC Utah...Is traffic thru SLC area a lot better there on Sundays?

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
