RE: Replacing RV fridge with Residential Fridge

I spend most of my time in campgrounds with full hookups. When I travel I can run my genny to keep it cool until I arrive.

Replacing RV fridge with Residential Fridge

My RV fridge has been dead for a week now. The cooling unit is bad. I was going to get a Dometic replacement, but the price is $3000 at camping world. Today I was at Home depot and they had a nice 10 cu ft stainless fridge for $400 on sale, which will fit my current opening in my RV. So basically I can buy 7 residential fridges for the price of 1 RV fridge, complete nonsense. Anyway I have a couple of questions about the residential fridge. 1. How does it get secured to the RV during installation ? 2. How can I lock the doors when I travel down the road ? 3. How do I secure the items in the fridge from flying off the their shelves when traveling ? (tension bars) Thanks for the help.

RE: Dometic Fridge not cooling

Looks like the cooling unit is bad, so I will be ordering a Dometic RM1350MIMSS. Wow what sticker shock $3000 to $3600 for a fridge not including install !

Dometic Fridge not cooling

My Dometic Fridge stopped working yesterday, either on gas or electric. It is at least 10 yrs old. Should I repair it or get a new one ? Should I replace it with a residential unit that only runs on AC ? I checked the recall list and I don't see the model or serial numbers on the recall list. NDR1292 350 00046 I dont have much room for a residential as my furnace and water pump are under my fridge. Thanks

RE: Where to buy a Toad all ready setup to tow

I checked those websites and only found 1 jeep that met my criteria. Maybe I am going about this the wrong way, thought I could buy a complete package. I guess I'll have to buy the SUV, then the towing equipment. Your thoughts ?

Where to buy a Toad all ready setup to tow

I have towed my SUV on a trailer behind my Class A for 10 years. The trailer was used for multiple things not just towing my SUV, so it made sense to have it, now I no longer need the trailer for those other things so I was thinking of buying a Jeep to pull behind the RV. I have seen the info on what can be towed. What I wanted to find, is there a place to buy a tow suv that comes with all the equipment to tow it already installed ? Thanks

RE: LEDs lights attached connected to awning power

Good feedback. One problem with mounting them under the gutter, is my slideout. I would have to have them only on the slideout portion of the RV, which is a little smaller than my awning, but it would make the wiring much easier to the porch light. Then there is the controller on some of these units, that looks a bit large, not sure what to do with that. JCat

LEDs lights attached connected to awning power

I want to install led lights on my awning, but don't want to have wires hanging down. Has anyone attached them to the 12v at the awning motor ? If yes let me know how you did this. Thanks

RE: Newell is a good ride right?

Tom/Barb - Newells are not fiberglass they are aluminum. But your comment is valid, time takes a toll on everything. OP - your thought process is valid about buying an older high end RV versus a newer mid range. I have been exeposed to many Newells, Marathon's, Liberty, Millenium's and their owners over the last 3 years here at Motor Coach Country Club in Indio CA. One thing that many state is that they prefer a coach built on a bus chasis (Prevost) instead of the custom chasis (Newell). They have stated that the ride is better and there are less issues when using the bus chasis. I love the Newells myself, went and did a factory tour and love the layouts and designs, maybe soon I will have one. Do your research before you buy.

RE: Drawer sliders keep breaking

Trackrig, did the drawer slides you got from HD lock in place when shut ? If yes do you have anymore info on these parts ?

Drawer sliders keep breaking

In the back of my drawers where the slider connects to the wall there is a plastic piece that is attached to the wall and the slider attaches to this. Over time these plastic pieces break, due to weight in the drawer and road bumps. I have replaced over 20 of these and they are a real PITA. Has anyone found a replacement part made of of metal ? Or have you replaced the sliders with something that is more sturdy ? Let me know.

RE: Looking for Motorized Windshield shade

I have 2 motorized MCD shades installed in the front and manual pull down on the drivers and passenger sides. They do a good job but I wish they looked better.

Inverter use and electronics

I have had a convection oven and 2 sat receivers go bad after using my inverter to power the electronics. I also have observed that my flatscreen puts out a high pitch noise when on the inverter. I am wondering if the power from the inverter, since it is not a true sine wave is causing early failure of these items. Your thoughts ?

RE: External Generator use on Class A

UPDATE: Yesterday I turned on the Yamaha in the morning, 8am, and it ran until 4:30 PM when it ran out of gas. When I refilled it, it had used only 1.5 gallans of gas. So I was able to power my TV, sat receiver, fridge, computers (2) for 8.5 hours. This is fantastic ! JCat
