RE: Safety

People keep talking about safety in a campground. As I replied earlier, never felt threatened or a need for a gun in a campground. I carry because I have to get from point A to point B and what's inbetween might not be the best of places. If I could guarantee that I wouldn't get a flat tire, some other breakdown or even an accident then maybe I would feel comfortable without a weapon. Since there are no guarantees, I'll carry.

RE: Safety

I have a CCW and do have a gun in the MH. Never felt unsafe in a campground. I carry because you never know where a breakdown may occur. Could end up on the side of the road in an unfavorable part of town. For those that prefer to call 911, go ahead. Keep in mind that although it says "Protect and Serve" on many police cars, protecting you is not their job. Their job is to enforce the law, investigate crimes and arrest criminals.

RE: 1st time RV owner need help

Our 32" flat screen is mounted on an articulating arm. I can bring it out and down so we're not forced to crane our necks to watch it. I use two luggage straps to hold it in and up while traveling.

RE: no 12v in the coach

Could also be battery disconnect solenoid. Had one fail in previous MH, would not latch in on position.

RE: Class A body roll

I personally don't think tire pressure is going to stop body roll. I feel like I have to much body roll on our coach going out of uneven driveways and when making turns. I am going to put on Bilstien shocks. I have been told by several members on here that the Bilstiens will control body roll and a better ride too. We shall see! Many have mentioned a stronger sway bar. Depends on which type of body roll you're trying to solve. You mention uneven driveways. Stronger sway bar will make that type of roll worse. When one wheel drops or rises the sway bar will try to compensate which cause the roll to be worse. Sway bars are intended to prevent roll while cornering or on the open road.

RE: Do any Class A motorhomes have mirror-wall closets?

My uncle's 1999 Southwind had a mirrored closet across the back. Ours has a mirrored closet on the side next to the bed in the slide out. 03 Winnebago Adventurer.

RE: double pane window

The Bounder we had had double pane windows up front, driver and passenger windows. Of course the windshield was single pane. In our Winnebago the passenger window is double pane. The driver's window is a power window that goes down into the door, it's single pane and of course so is the windshield.

RE: double pane window

I believe the 1/4" he's speaking of is the glass thickness, not a space between panes. My parents Allegro had that. With that said, we've had single pane and double pane windows. For me I wouldn't consider single panes ever again. It would be a deal breaker. Okay, never seen 1/4" thick glass in an RV, that's a really thick pane of glass.

RE: Slide out question

Before adjusting bolts on the slide take a look at the end of the arm the rail slides into. Should be a white nylon piece, spacer. The rail slides across that. If it is broken or missing the slide will drop on that end.

RE: double pane window

Just my 2 cents on double pane windows. We camp year 'round and in cold weather, double pane makes a huge difference in condensation (motorhomes are so closed up humidity goes up and a cold window will condense water or frost over). People who store their RVs all winter (and there are many) won't see any real advantage to double pane but will have to deal with the issue of eventually resealing them. Your preferred way of camping should dictate your window choice. I would think if they say 1/4 inch, that is going to be single pane. If you see tilt out windows, that's single. All double pane I have seen have been sliders. !/4" is the typical thickness of the spacer between the 2 panes of glass in a slider double pane window. Our MH also has tilt out windows in the bedroom that are also thermo pane or double pane. They have a smaller spacer, don't remember for sure but either 3/16" or 1/8". If the tilt out window sits on the outside of the frame then it's going to be single pane. If it sits done inside the frame when closed then it could be double pane. We had a Fleetwood Bounder and it had double pane windows, can't say for sure that Fleetwood uses double panes in all their MHs.

RE: Day/night Shades Cleaning

Soaked ours in the bathtub in oxyclean. Rinsed with the shower wand and let them dry. After hanging them back up I sprayed them with spray starch, closed them up and let them dry for a few days. Turned out good.

RE: Digital video recorder.

Seems half the time when trying to reply on this forum it just sits and spins.

RE: Digital video recorder.

Tried posting a link a couple times but just get the spinning circle. Search Iview 3500STBii on Amazon.

RE: Thoughts on Used Class A Drive Train and Chassis

We have an 03 35' Winnebago and don't really have an issue with wind noise. Having said that, wind noise has nothing to do with the chassis. Ours is the Workhorse, W22 with 22.5" tires. Good chassis, it needs new shocks but still handles well.

RE: Replacing decal stripe

Might also try a marine store. They use a lot of vinyl on boats.

RE: Need 2002 Bounder/Workhorse advice

Workhorse purchased the chassis business from GM and did continue building the P32 chassis. The W series chassis is a whole different thing. We had a Bounder on the P32 chassis and now a Winnebago on the W22 chassis. It's a good chassis and parts are available when needed. I would think your neighbor should have the paperwork on the recall if it was done. If not there is a Workhorse sub-forum on another site. A user there can run the VIN to see if there are any outstanding recalls on the chassis. BTW Workhorse was purchased by Navistar.

RE: Water Heater Element

NOT ON YOUR MODEL. That is the operative statement. YOUR model has the OLD style rear system. The OP may have the NEW style system with the Tstat and ECO on the ourside, which controls BOTH LP and 120 operation. NOT in the back. You still have to access the back to replace the element. We really need the OP to respond with their Model number. They may have an old style as 2003/2005 was when Atwood changed. Doug Well I guess my statement was no more correct nor incorrect then yours since it depends on which model they have. As the MH is an 03 like ours it may have the manual reset ECO. In any case if the unit was overheating due to a failed thermostat the ECO should cut power and prevent the element from overheating.
