RE: Fresh water leaks into tank

I would check the water selector switch to see if it's completely on City water. Also one time my selector switch came loose and fell to the ground. My wife seen it on the ground and without mentioning it to me see put it back on in the reverse position! And this was causing me the same situation you are describing.

RE: Counterfeit Tires

I hope the counterfeit tire makers get sued! Like Samsung got sued for stealing all of Apples technology and made all those cheaper tablets and phones! That's a two way street. Technology companies are always stealing from each other. From what I've read, Apple has had to remove Samsung's technology as much as Samsung has had to remove Apple's. You could be right? I don't have the facts but Apple is hands down the leader in computers, tablets and phones. But I was at a conference and Steve Jobs was talking and he quipped and laughed about the one thing that he stoled from Microsoft after they stoled so much stuff from him. I'm so glad Samsung got nailed!

RE: cold weather travel

My tow car lost tire pressure at Lake Havasu City, AZ. after a cold spell last year. The tire light came on the dashboard warning me. I went to Lakeside Tire in LHC and the manager told me it's quite common for tires to lose air after a cold spell. He also told me that I was the 12th vehicle to come in that day with low tire pressure. I've never had that happen to me before during cold spells in the Pacific Northwest?

RE: Condensation Problem on front window.

We run an electric water collecting dehumidifier in the HTT during winter outings. Leaving windows cracked or vents seemed silly. Now we dial in the humidity we want. We have been known to put the unit in the shower and dry cloths by hangin them in the bathroom. I think these should be standard equipment in all RV's.We have collected three gallons of water from the air in less than 24 hours X-2 on being standard equipment in a RV!

RE: Most secure motorhome?

The most secure motorhome is the one that is double locked! The door lock is locked and the deadbolt lock is locked locked! Any RV that I've owned since 1976 had both locks on them. Good safety question IMHO.

RE: Chains for driving on snow and ice

I'm a retired truckdriver and the dual chains that are mentioned in this post are called 3 railers! I've driven my motorhome in the snow just fine without chains (one time April 1999, I went from the Grand Canyon to Flagstaff, AZ. 1-1/2 feet of snow in the drift areas and I never spun a wheel) and I had chains on board but did not need them. I recommend just carrying a set of singles and 2 short pieces of 2"X10" wood that way if you have to chain up put both pieces of wood under each inside dual and drive up onto the 2x10's. Your outside duals will be off the ground and set up easily to install the chains. And you will be legal if you go over any mountain passes which require chains Nov. thru Apr. RV's drive well in snow (not ice) because there so heavy. If it's super icy, I run two singles on the outside rear and a single chain on my left steer tire. I do carry chains today but I try not to chain up just sit and wait. Before I retired I chained up almost every night during the winter driving a set of doubles over the Cascade Mtns.

RE: Bypass Phoenix from Flagstaff to Palm Springs

I would bypass Phoenix completely by going to Kingman then to Palm Springs. X-2, I've taken this route before!

RE: How long to learn to drive a Class A

I'm a retired over the road truckdriver and I experienced what your talking about in my semi and my RV almost all the time. Your driving a high profile vehicle so any vehicle pushing wind or the wind itself will effect on how your vehicle steers. Also most roads & Hwys. are "Supered" for drainage. Most roads it's a 3" difference between the centerline and the fog line and this will have a minor effect on your driving also.

RE: Condensation Problem on front window.

Yes, there is a product that will stop moisture inside your coach it's called a Dehumidifier! You can buy them at most RV Shops. It's the greatest device that I have purchased for my coach. I have my dehumidifier placed between my split windshields and I empty 3 to 4 inches of water out of it a week. Great Question!

RE: 50 amp power cord

Happy 2, My 50 amp cord is in it's own storage bay! I bought one of those orange 5 gallon buckets at Home Depot. I store my plug in adapters in that bucket along with all my different size TV cable. I wrapped the 50 amp cord around the orange bucket and it stays nice and uniform and is no trouble to me unreeling the cord length as needed.

RE: Licensing questions

Anyone can drive a RV in Washington State! You can be in failing health, you need no special license or endorsements.

RE: Driving the motorhome through Colorado?

You will likely have more trouble with the weather than CDOT. Been going in and out for 10 years and no issues. X-2

RE: Veterans Day

I started another Veteran's day tread on another forum. I serve 68-72 II Corps, Qui Nhon etc, VietNam. I still serve but not in uniform. Thanks Guys for Serving. Now help out the foundering American Legion Halls. To our Fathers and their Generations that served in WWI and WWII, Korea and Vietnam a great big howdy. To those that never cam back I saulet you all wherever you rest. Down Home, I'm glad your trying to help with the floundering American Legion Halls! That's good news to my ears! Over a decade ago I needed help filing a VA claim (Agent Orange) so I went to the American Legion Hall in Bremerton, WA. The American Legion Hall in Bremerton told me there was nobody here to help me that they were a drinking club and they sent me to the DAV! The DAV took care of business for me and I'm very grateful to them.

RE: My wife is concerned about personal security

We travel mostly to Arizona and most RV Resorts that we go to have security. I've never had any security problems RVing and I've been RVing since 1976.

RE: Veterans Day

Yes, a big thanks to all Veterans for their service. BTW, I was not brave, I was drafted! No volunteering for jungle hikes here....but got to do it anyway. I hear you Dean! I was drafted also, I had number #3 in the draft lotto! Isn't it nice to be a lottery winner. The prize for winning was a 1 year paid vacation in S.E. Asia. I was on a night Ambush squad we went out into the jungle every night and we were rewarded by getting to sleep on a supply base during the day!

RE: First time buyer
