Winnebago Recall from last November

I just got my recall on the fire extinguishers ( I’ve been RVing in the S.W. Since last October) I got on Kidde ( prounced kid-da) Website today and couldn’t figure anything out it didn’t jive with my extinguisher! So I called the toll free number and talked to a service rep! She asked me the model number and I told her and she said that Kidde would send me a new Extinguisher free of charge! The model number of my extinguisher was not on there website? I bought my coach new in 2004 and my extinguisher is still charged according to the gauge. I had no way of knowing that my extinguisher was faulty! I’m grateful I didn’t have to use it. Kudo’s to Kidde for stepping up taking responsibility and fixing the problem.

RE: Electrical?

Unplug from shore power. Do not connect again until you have checked the voltages at the pedestal or several neighbors have plugged in with no problems. OK, Arch!

RE: Electrical?

Thanks guys for your quick response and explaining to me about the switch! I’m sure the switch is working but I’ll shut the 50 amp breaker off just to make sure. The power is going off again for 4 hours tomorrow!

Electrical?

I’m currently camping at the Palm Springs, Joshua Tree KOA. The power went out purposely today for 4 hours. There were workers, working on the underground power lines. My question is can I run my gen set without electricity back feeding into the lines where the workers are working. The temperature was 84* at 10 A.M. and I wanted to use my AC, but wasn’t sure if the electricity could feed back to them are not? Is there a switch in my RV that stops electricity from feeding back or do I have to turn the 50 amp breaker switch off?

Salton Sea

I was curious how many people research the destination there going to? I got on a few Salton Sea websites and was shocked by what I read. I’m RVing at Palm Springs KOA, so I went down today to take a look at California’s largest lake! Anyway, it appears that just about everything I read was true and that place is a real health hazard IMHO. I feel for the poor people living in communities around the Lake and can’t afford to move and there very sick! I got out of my CRV at Mecca Beach, and the Lake smelled like sewer to me. I was shocked at all the people in motor homes camping along the lake? I don’t know if they were unaware of there surroundings or just plain ignorant? I’m glad I, at least checked it out and won’t be going back there anytime soon since I have a low immune system. If your not aware of the Salton Sea problems please read about it on the net! Happy Trails, Rooster

RE: Chairs For Driver and Passenger

I would check the price difference between new and reupholstered. If there is not a big price gap between the two, I would go New.

RE: TIRES

I paid around $2,800.00 for my Michelin XRV’s about 3 years ago on the Michelin Advantage program. What I suggest is keep doing your research and purchase the best tire that you can afford. When it comes to tires, brakes or steering I would be very careful in my selection to have faithful equipment! Good Luck, with whatever you choose! Rooster

RE: Aspire vs a phaeton, what do you think?

I would buy the Coach with the floor plan that would suit my needs the best! Both very nice coaches!

RE: How do you use your class A?

I’m retired and living in Washington State, we take our coach out two weeks during the summer to the Pacific Ocean, then the coach sits until October when we head for the Southwest! This year we moved around more than usual 1-1/2 months at St. George, Utah, 1-1/2 months on the Parker, AZ. Strip, and now we’ve moved on to Palm Springs, CA. Which we are enjoying for the first time and have been exploring the area. Weather in Palm Springs is usually 10* warmer then Lake Havasu area. This coming week in Palm Springs it will be in the low 80*s. I’m enjoying this area very much lot’s to do!

RE: California winds

We have been camping out on Lake Havasu until yesterday and the winds have been around 25 MPH gusting to 35-40 MPH we moved yesterday and were on the Colorado River just below Parker Dam and the winds here are calmer but it still blows good in the late afternoon. Last night driving home from Parker, AZ. My I-Phone weather alert went off (very similar to a amber alert) warning us of high winds and fire danger? The wind here is blowing out of the Northeast toward the West. Across the River from our Camping spot is San Bernardino County, California desert. We’re about 240 miles East of Los Angeles is my guess. your a long long ways from the ventura and La area fires so no worrys Thanks, my wife read in USA Today that the alert was sent out to 12 million people! I don’t have to sleep with one eye opened tonight!

RE: Water Drip

We have a 2003 Adventurer 35U so may be a different layout than yours. The overflow for the fresh water tank comes out of the top of the tank and down through the floor. Dumps right on top of one of the mufflers, or maybe a catalytic converter, don't remember. Fridge drain goes out the back into a tank behind the vent cover. Low point drain goes through the floor next to water heater. That's the only drains I know of, oh, the drain for the fresh water tank but that's a large hose, over an inch. Only time I've seen water come out of overflow/vent is when filling the tank. When it starts overflowing I know it's full. Thanks, Scott & Hank! Hank my coach is very similar to yours a 04 35U. I have overfilled my freshwater tank one time and the water just spilled out toward the back of the tank. I can’t ever remember water coming out of that black hose before! Thanks, Rooster

RE: Water Drip

My refrigerator has a drain hose that exits under the coach. My WH overflow from high temperature, also exits under the coach. I also have a fresh water tank overflow that exits under the floor on the opposite side of the fresh water tank. This hose used to siphon water out of my fresh water tank until I put a plug in it. The only other hose that drains under my coach is from the dash AC. Any chance that it is one of those hoses? Thanks Ron, my guess would be the frig, my water heater is way more forward!

Water Drip

We’re currently Rving in a State Park on the Parker Strip in Arizona! When I arrived at the Park yesterday my wife informed me about a water leak coming from the area around our self contained water tank (center of the coach) I crawled under the coach and to my surprise the leak was not coming from my fresh water holding tank! There is a little back hose that is coming thru the flooring and water is weeping out of this hose? I can see clearly that the hose was designed to do this, but I never seen it dripping before? I own a 2004 Winnebago Adventurer (this coach when I bought it new in 2004 was Winnebago’s top of the line gas coach) the area the hose is protruding from is around or under my sink and refrigerator. Not guessing does anyone know where this seep hose is originating from. Thanks, Rooster P.S. it’s been very windy here in the South Lake Havasu area.

RE: Geico Claim AFTER blowout

Dennis we have geico insurance and used it one time with success 5 or 6 years ago when a run away pick up truck (paperboy jumped out of truck on a flat surface at the Cattail Cove Ranger Station and down hill the truck went.) The PU went over the bank and T-Boned the right rear side of my Winnebago wiped out our propane system. It was 5 AM and the wife and I were sleeping. Geico had our coach towed to 3 T’s in LHC. This accident happened in Dec. so I couldn’t get any parts from Winnebago factory closed down for Christmas Vacation so had to wait until second week on Jan. To get parts. Geico paid for everything including our trip back to WA. ST. Rooster

Nevada Hwy. #93

I’m heading out for Arizona in a couple of days my wife would like me to take Hwy. #93 thru Nevada. Does anyone know if I’ll be able to drive between Ely, NV and Pioche, NV. I drive a 04 Winnebago, 496 gas engine, 75 gallon fuel tank, and I’m towing a 2014 CRV. Is there a gas station not showing on the map between these two cities? It looks to me to be a long distance between those two cities. Thanks, Rooster

RE: Super Singles

I'm a retired truck driver who hauled super singles on a converter dolly and some trailers. I do not like how they track! And I did see one time a semi driver who made a very sharp U Turn with a trailer full of can goods and the Super single tires seperated off the wheel rims. I really like how they look but I don't care for them. Good Luck with your Super Singles if you decide to purchase them.
