RE: Towing a towed and a boat behind mh

Where are you going to overnight with that much length? I have been unfortunate in the past to be overnighting next some towing two vehicles. They tend to take up way too much room, being a navigation hazard to others entering or leaving the campground.

RE: Pink stuff in the toilet?

Since there is nothing to freeze in the toilet. a little vegetable oil will keep those seals lubricated and wash right away with the first flush or so in the spring.

RE: Motorhome driver sentenced in fatal accident

There surely must be more to this story. How in the world could any judge let him off so light. He killed a man the same as if he had shot him. Every thing appears to have been in place for the safe handling of traffic. This is a prime case for a civil suit.

RE: Hydraulic vs Electric motor levelers

Electrics. My brother can power his up and down. I have to depend on springs to retract. I also have to very careful with seals. However it seems to me the hydraulics have more lifting power.

RE: What would happen?

I came up on this while staying at a winter resort. I wanted to exercise my generator, but stay hooked up to the land line. I ask the resort engineer what he thought. He asked if I had a transfer switch. Yes, he said if it's working properly nothing will happen it will accept the strongest source. I did it and nothing did happen. I did it more than once and no problems. However, he cautioned me that unless there is a very good reason for doing it, he would advise against it. I stopped doing it.

RE: incontinence/bladder control

This problem may be a very simple enlargement of the prostrate. If so you can be treated with medication. It curbs that sudden urge syndrome and life is so much better. See the doctor first there are many remedies for this problem.

RE: 2007 Fleetwood Jamboree 31M

Are you sure it is a 450 HP? Ford made a 460 hp but most of the 2000 and newer had the V-10 in it. I could get 9.0 to 9.5 at reasonable speeds below 65 mph on mine. The previous 460's generally got in the 7.0 to 8.5 mpg

RE: Do coiled power cords heat up and cause fires?

Coiled electric cords will heat up. I've never seen one get hot enough to catch fire. I have left mine coiled in the electric bay many times at some campgrounds where the elect post was very close.

RE: New to Rv issues. Delamination?

De lamination is nearly impossible to correct. A brother in law of mine bought one with that problem and he completely took out the inside wall. The wood framing was rotted very badly. He is a stubborn individual and he spent a couple of years on it and finally came out with a fair looking job. You could still see waves in the outside skin however. He did all the labor himself but he still put a bundle into a coach that was not worth what he paid for it.He even had to replace the roof as where it was anchored was all rotted. It sure did not look that bad when he bought it.

RE: Pay for parts up front?

There is no good reason for the dealer to do this, unless he vastly overcharging and knows the insurance company will balk. What if this dealer goes belly up before you get your awning? You are not a secured creditor and will lose anything you give him. I would not do it.

RE: Drained antifreeze after winterizing; ok or not okay?

Your hot water tank if drained and blown out will not freeze, you can take out the relief valve if you wish and put a little anti freeze in the HW tank if you wish. You sure do not need to put any in your fresh water tank as the water pump will pull the anti freeze in and fill the water lines. I would not empty them. just leave the anti freeze in for the winter. In the spring you can flush everthing out. The HW tank will be difficult to get the anti freeze entirely out of it, but it can be done. You should not need more than two gallons of anti-freeze to completely winterize,(depending on how large your 5ver is).

RE: Should I submit an insurance claim

You may not get dropped, but you will get an increase in premium. So if you can fix it yourself do so. These insurance companies are jokes when it comes to paying claims. If it is catastrophic then they may be of some use.

RE: Parking a Class A within 4" of a wooden fence

I am going to take a different approach. If the fence is yours, take it down. Your coach is going to serve as a fence for all practical purposes when you are home. Just sayin.

RE: Dumping RV tanks into home syptic system

For many many years I have dumped my black and Gray into the clean out of my septic and later the city sewer system. I also do not use chemicals of any kind. Nature takes care of that, if you do not dump tanks too often. I never had to have my septic cleaned, and the city sewer I did not worry about. I did ask the city sewer mgr about dumping into the city system, and his words to me; it does not care where the sewage came from, it is built to handle it.

RE: New Champion 2000 Generators

Nothing like getting hot off the press feedback from new reviews.

RE: Nation wide rv sales company

Bleakly is the correct name. It was in Mid Georgia. I do not remember seeing a Ford Dealership anywhere in the area connected to the RV repair. The tough part is, they seem to be so nice and accommodating when I stopped there. 100 miles down the road my brother,( who was following in his rig) called on the CB and told me I had no brake lights or turn signals again on the toad. That is what I paid to have fixed. At a rest stop, I after a hour, found a ground problem. Fixed it, never had the problem again in many miles of travel.

RE: Nation wide rv sales company

My guess you will not hear from them at all. I had the same thing happen on the same kind of problem in Georgia. Had about the same results the next day. Wrote to them and never heard a word from them. I was too far away for me to go back and confront them. I eventually found and fixed the problem myself. It was as simple as a bad ground. So I kinow they never so much as put a volt meter on it. By the way I thought it strange they ask for cash payment, now I know why.Sorry about you getting stuck. Blast them in all the forums. "Blakely" was the name of outfit I was ripped off by.
