RE: Good Idea or NNOO

My coach has a entry door and a drivers door but, I always leave one window unlocked. It paid off one time about 10 years ago. I locked myself out of my coach with the keys inside. A neighbor at the RV Park had a step ladder so I was able to get inside my coach and unlock it.

RE: No water pressure

Thanks everybody. I've removed pump, blew in both sides(one air blows through, other none). I've removed outgoing pump line and constant flow of water (presumably gravity from tank). Still nothing. Not a drop out faucets, nor air being bled from lines. Tank is full as water is coming out overflow. I plugged water inlet, no improvement. I plugged water inlet with air fitting, added compressed air and water comes blasting out overflow in both valve settings (fill tank/city pressure). It appears water inlet valve is not doing its job of closing off to allow sealed pressurized system? As I mentioned, went to RV supply and no replacement for my setup.shy of cutting both lines and adding an inlet valve to each one separately, I'm at a loss. Thanks again for all help/suggestions! GregGreg, sorry to hear about your water problems! I'm interested into what is causing this in your coach? Let us know what you find out. Good Luck, Rooster

RE: Keeping cool in 95 degree heat...

When I'm headed to AZ. from Washington State, I stop off in Barstow, CA. have lunch and turn the genset on so I can run the AC's! When you get to your destination it's important to get your coach cooled down in the morning to be prepared for the P.M. heat!

RE: Is the new Ford 6 speed really that BIG a deal?

Hi Charles, You were posting as I was and I must tell you that's some fine information. Any idea when the Chevy/Ford transmission may been seen in motorhomes? I didn't know Chevy was back in the RV business? Good news to hear? And Chevy building there own transmissions that's new to me? Chevy had been going with Allison Transmissions which are near bullet proof! Surprised that they switched transmissions?

RE: Age restrictions

I was told by a RV Park Owner in Lake Havasu City, AZ. it's that high end RV Park on the road on your way to the garbage dump, I'm sorry I forgot the name of the Park! Anyway, he told me the RV Park Association voted in a 10 year age restriction for RV's. This gives the RV Park leeway to not welcome RVers that do not maintain there coaches. The owner also told me that a RV that looks good, clean and well maintained that is over 10 years old is welcomed there, but a passing vote from the Home Owners Associating (this RV Park also sells private lots) is needed. Hope this post helps you define age restrictions.

RE: 2013 vs 2014 Bounder

I would check the date on the chassis to make sure of the true year! My coach's chassis is 2003, but everything else is a 2004, therefore it can be licensed as a 2004. Why I'm pointing this out to you, is when I bought a set of shocks the model year changed and, I needed a set of shocks for a 2003 chassis! A set of 2004 shocks wouldn't of fit due to the chassis change in 2004! Good Luck with your new coach!

RE: RV Covers

For previous posts on this subject search this Forum for `RV Cover' in the Class A section. We cover ours with a Sunshield tarp; black side up in the winter and silver side up in the summer. X-2 Great Advice from Dick, lots of info awaiting you!

RE: Easiest route to the redwoods from the north with trailer

I can't remember the Hwy. (Someone Please Help Me Out, I can't find my Atlas tonight), but I followed the Trinity River to the Ocean. Fuel up at I-5 before you head toward the Ocean and my coach was a 36' and I was towing a car and had no troubles with the road. Very beautiful drive.

RE: 2015 Subaru Forester

From a article that I read dated 02-11-2014, Subaru went to a electric rack and pinion steering.

RE: Welding Precautions

Disconnect the coach from shore power. Keep the ground connection for the welder as CLOSE as possible to the area to be welded. Make sure that there are no wiring harnesses, fuel lines, propane lines, air lines, near the area to be welded. Some people may recommend disconnecting the batteries, or ECM/TCM but I never found that necessary on any of my coaches.X3. Your biggest problem will be not starting a fire, or melting something. You can do the disconnecting mentioned by others to make yourself feel good, but it is not necessary. Shore power, ground is ground, do as you want. All TIG welders I have used have HF start in AC and DC. Electricity is like humans and water, it is lazy and will take the path of least resistance. Go forth and create Fusion. X-4, I agree with the Wildman's post solid advice!

I'm glad everything worked out for you Rod! I'm a retired trucker and most of our guys had there XM Radio, set up to remove it after there shift. There antenna's were mounted on the truck cab mirror bracket!

RE: Motorhome Insurance

We have Progressive insurance - full-time coverage. Look how much more your insurance will have to pay out if something happens to the new motorhome vs the old. Perfectly understandable why they would charge more for the premium. If you are not full-time, do they allow you to put just storage coverages on it when you are not using it? If so, that can reduce the cost significantly. Insurance rates are different State to State even with the same carrier!

RE: Looking for an Extended Warranty Company

Take a look at www.rv-dreams.com they did a great piece on extended warranties. They ended up working for one of the companies they researched and have had great service from the company a couple of times. Thanks..... I had just finished reading that blog earlier this morning and called WholesaleWarranties.com. Unfortunately, they cannot sell policies to anyone residing in California :( Racorman, why is that (Can't sell in Cali!)?

RE: Boy this listing IS FISHY

I would think that $2,500.00 wouldn't even pay for the diesel engine if it's well maintained and in good working order!

RE: I was pleasantly surprised

Won't happen in Washington State we have some of the highest fuel taxes in the U.S. were in the top 5. Shouldn't be that way since we process most of the crude oil coming from Alaska's North Slope. Our State politicians starting with our Governor on down can't stay within the reins of financial responsibility so they raise are fuel taxes and sick the Washington State Patrol on there own citizens to write as many violations as possible to make up the shortfalls. The WSP wrote over 1 million traffic tickets (mostly speeding) on I-5 in Fife, WA. (according to KING 5 News) My neighbor who is a State Trooper told me he dislikes having to make up this short fall. I'm very happy for all of you RVers who pay low fuel prices.

RE: Issues with new coach

^^^ That's good advice. Marcus, or at least his team, do seem to have the appearance of caring. Shake some leaves, maybe some fruit will pop out. X-2, Marcus monitors RV.Net at times! Is CW renting out these RV's before people are buying them? It sounds like to me that new RVers not knowing what they are doing are causing a lot of these problems?

RE: RV sitting for over 2 years - recommendations

Don't matter if it's gas or diesel run 3 cans of Seafoam thru the engine and genset it will clean your fuel system up after sitting for a couple of years. Seafoam is $6.94 per can at Walmart and 3 cans will treat a 50 gallon fuel tank. Pour the Seafoam in first then fuel!
