RE: Traveling thru Las Vegas heading north I-15

When I go North from Yuma I go through Lake Havasu City to Kingman. I do not like the humpty dumps in California on US 95. Then US 93 and turn off on Lakeshore Rd Just before Boulder City up to highway 167. Then if you want to see Valley of Fire which is more than worth the time turn on Valley of Fire Highway then to I15. If you are not interested in Valley of Fire continue on highway 167 to highway 169 to I15. This skips Las Vegas completely and both highway 167 and 169 are good roads. As per google maps the route through Las Vegas is 222 miles and 3hr 24 minutes. The route using highway 167 and 169 is 219 miles and 3hr 46 minutes. The distance and times are from Kingman to St George. Is the area you are referring to the location where the 95, the 515 and 15 meet?

RE: Traveling thru Las Vegas heading north I-15

RE: Blew out water lines. Hooked up, no water @ bathroom faucet

Hello. I blew out my water lines on my: 2012 Fuzion FZ375 before leaving for Christmas with the family. 2 weeks later, returned, hooked up the water and now have no water at the bathroom faucet. Kitchen, toilet, and shower all work fine. Any ideas? Thanks in advance- Larry make sure the levers setting the "normal" use positions are set there...I am alway filling my tank and forgetting to return to city water use...

RE: Rain on slide toppers

Have that problem as well, in fact it cost me a slide topper and $$$ as I had to get a mobile RV repair to come to the rescue. Since it has finally been rectified...I made me a "tool" to use to brush the water off the toppers after a rain, no matter torrential or not. I constructed it out of a pole (3/4 inch conduit or PVC would work) made an elbow at the top-6-8 inch 'arm', another elbow with 1-2 inch 'down arm' to which I connected a broom head. Works wonders..sure I turn heads when I use it, but also I have been asked if the neighbor or the 'lookers' could use as well. It stores all in one of my pass thru compartments. Can you take a photo of it? and post

RE: Jacks

Well i got my jack to work again. I had my wife work the joy stick up and down and sprayed the jack shaft with WD 40. After several extensions and spraying the jack now works normally. This was a relief. Thanks for all the comments. I thought my solution may help someone else. Might be better to spray it with a dry silicone. or the dry style of wd 40. I do it every month.:C

RE: back-up camera

It is pretty much plug and play. You'll have to hook up a ground and power wire. The hardest part is running the wire from the front of the RV to the rear. I guess that is my question. If a MH already has a camera and monitor, can you use existing wires? ,etc.

RE: back-up camera

How much tech knowledge is required to change out the camera? is is somewhat of a punplug plugin kind of thing...:h

RE: Experts in things turn signals,brakes , etc. electrical

Wow, I'm impressed, YC1! You nailed that mystery fault right on without even seeing it. How great this forum is. I never crow very loudly, I am begging to like the taste of crow. :B He has not fixed it yet and the spray he used will just make things slippery. One just has to sit down over a bucket with the end of the connector inside and remove the little screw that will get lost when checking each end. I have overhauled my cords many times in 35 years. It is amazing how funky they can get in one season. Since I am not real handy with electrical kind of things, I was going to go look for a cord...but are you saying I may see the issue if I take the ends off the cord? If it is a ground, how do I know which it is? BTW the turn signal turned for either right or left does the same thing.

RE: Experts in things turn signals,brakes , etc. electrical

The cruise cuts off because it thinks you stepped on the brake. Which way do you turn the signal to make the cruise quit? Either way... When setting still (here in a park), I turn on the turn signal...it flashes correctly, then I step on brake and it stops...I then pulled the umbicale (sp) cord out from the MH and the turn signal keeps working...sounds like it is the cord...I had electrical spray and it didn't help...so must as fellow above says...is probably a short..

RE: Experts in things turn signals,brakes , etc. electrical

You may have a short in the toad umbilical cord or either the coach socket or the car socket. If there is a short, indicated by blown fuses, you could have feedback to the brake line thus telling the rv you are putting on your brakes which would turn the cruise control off. Yes it could be intermittent so take each end of the umbilical apart and open the sockets on the vehicles. I have some of the electrical spray...could that help...I guess I could check that now that I am parked by taking the umbilical cord out of the MH...Is that what you are referring to?

Experts in things turn signals,brakes , etc. electrical

I will try to keep this on point...Left home and everything was working fine...stopped at a rest area, turned the MH off, came back and started up again...about a mile down the road noticed the cruise control would not engage...pulled to the side of road and turned on the flashers...alas flashers not working...checked outside stop lights...none...So got out the workhorse chassis book and found two fuse blocks...one in the MH in dash, and one under hood. the fuse for the stop and flashers was on the outside block. changed it and the one for the cruise control and took off...both now work.... HOWEVER...when I turn on the turn signal the cruise now kicks off...and that is my dilemma...any suggestions??
