RE: Awing leak

I would look close at the attachment seam from the roof to the sidewall. There is a rubber covering that covers the screws that can rust out and allow water to enter. Remove a portion of this seal and see if it is wet , moldy or the screws are rusted away. Also check the 4 bolts that hold the awning arm on. Start by tightening the bolts,when you torque the bolts do they just spin or do they tighten and caulking squeezes out? If they spin I would re caulk under the flange and install over size bolts. If water is entering here it may be rotted underneath and nothing for the screw to bite into. If you check these two areas and report back what you found you can receive further help.

RE: Ford v-10 bucking and kicking out of overdrive

Does the check engine light just flash or can you retrieve a code from it? If you can get it to throw a code it will tell you misfire at a certain plug number. It will either be a coil pack or a spark plug, look for a black track in the white insulator indicating a cracked spark plug. Once you know what plug number is failing you can switch out plugs and coil packs to find which is bad , either coil or plug.

RE: Help w/ Water Heater

Thanks for your help. Is there a simple test to determine if its the circuit board. There is a simple test for the board. Go to the Attwood web site and they show the test. Also if it is not the potted board you can remove it and look at the back side for burned tracks.

RE: Downshifting fix for hills

There are several things that I have found that help this downshifting problem not mentioned yet. When I first bought my MH 10 years ago it downshifted at the slightest hill. Headers,a FF muffler and CA intake cured that problem. After several trips out west and to Alaska larger mountains would cause a lot of downshifting. I had an old vacuum gauge in my garage that I installed and it made a world of difference not only in shift points but in a slight mpg gain. When I see a hill coming I increase my speed before the hill once the MH is climbing and RPM's begin to drop I let off of the gas and maintain 2 psi of vacuum on the gauge this will keep the MH from downshifting. Off course on very long steep hills where you need more power I let it downshift.

RE: Consternation re Water Heater Burner & exhaust

The flu won't rust it is aluminum if you have an Attwood water heater. You can run a brush or coathanger with a rag at the end through the flu and just clean it out. The burner tube and bracket holding the igniter is steel and will rust that can be cleaned with a wire brush.

RE: weep holes

After inserting knife tips in the weep holes for years to unclog them I finally had to take up the rubber strips and remove all of the mold and dirt in order to clean out the tracks so the water could flow out of the weep holes.

RE: Waterless coolant

Will the waterless coolant do anything to remove the mineral buildup inside your old radiator? Is the specific heat transfer greater than 60-40 water and antifreeze? If not I don't think it would be worth it for an old radiator.

RE: Using an I Phone as a hotspot

I finally got the hotspot to work by calling Apples tech line, it took well over an hr to resolve, she would not admit what Ron stated above but I believe that was the main issue.

RE: Using an I Phone as a hotspot

When we got our I 5cs the same thing happened. It seems Verizon is reluctant to let everyone have hotspot ability. If both phones are on the same contract you may have to call them and have them enable hotspot on the 2nd phone. I see some one suggested tethering using USB. For a while I lost this ability. I found out that you have to have download Itunes for the drivers. Ron. Ron, I will mention your comments when I call the tech line, this sounds like the problem.

RE: Using an I Phone as a hotspot

I tried changing the name but still had the problem. I took it down to the Verizon store along with my laptop and spent over an hour their with a young man behind the counter was able to get my email working for me but not able to resolve the hotspot issue. What was strange is that he got the phone to work tethering it to the laptop, when we tried it as a Wi-Fi hotspot it would not work , when we tried to tether it back to the laptop it no longer worked. He gave me a technical number to call,the problem was beyond his understanding.

RE: Using an I Phone as a hotspot

When I right click on my I pnone there is no prompt for delete. What version of Windows are you using? Try highlighting it and hitting the delete key.. I have windows vista when I try to highlight and right click or delete nothing happens.

RE: Using an I Phone as a hotspot

We need more information. Do they each have different SSID's (connection names)? Does your laptop see your iphone hotspot but won't connect? If so, try deleting the connection on your laptop (right click on the iphone hotspot name and click delete), then refresh your connections and try again. It should now come up and ask for your hotspot's password. After it connects once, it will remember the password. My laptop sees both my wifes phone nad my phone as gary's IPhone. When I try to connect with mine it see's it but fails to connect. I will try deleting the hot spot

Using an I Phone as a hotspot

My wife and I recently got 2 identical 5C I phones. I can use hers as a hot spot with my laptop and it works fine. When I try to use mine I cannot connect to it. I set up hers first, I don't know if this has any thing to do with the problem. Does anyone have any idea of how to fix this?

RE: Help me find a motorhome?

How do you plan on using the motorhome, weekend trips, long-term, travel national park state parks or RV resorts? Based on how you camp what size motor home will you want? Will you do most of the maintenance work yourself? If you can post the answers to these questions this will help you get some better answers. OP said Full time. I missed that.
