RE: Need RV Park near Naperville ILL

I called and made my Reservation at Sycamore. They do stay open past Oct 31 but with limited staff and facilities. I will be gone by mid December so for 3 to 4 weeks all should be good. Thanks

RE: Interior coach lights dim and flicker ???

Had the same thing happen to me a few months back. 2 of my 4 6v house batteries were bad. Get a guy out to check the batteries or pull them yourself and have them checked. Replace the bad ones, see if problem goes away. If issue is unresolved, look at the inverter for repair or replacment.

RE: Need RV Park near Naperville ILL

Thanks guys I looked at Jellystone reviews and they said no Satellite due to tress, and poor wifi, I gotta have both of these as I will be working during the day, and relaxing at night. The Hollywood Casino does not show sewer hookups on RV Park Reviews, did you have full hookups when you were there ? I did find this one Sycamore RV Resort 375 E North Ave, Sycamore, IL 60178 Anyone stay there ?

Need RV Park near Naperville ILL

Will be heading to Naperville ILL area in mid Nov for a month or 2 (temperature dependent) and need a good campground. I did a search and many in that area don't seem to have sewer hookups and others have poor reviews, so I need some recommendations. Thanks

Class A Security System

I have wanted to add a security camera system to my RV for some time and would like to take the plunge now. I would like the cameras to be day and night, battery powered, and wireless. I would like the receiver to connect to the internet so I can see the cameras on my cell phone when away. Anyone installed a system like this, or know of one ? Thanks JCAT

Thetford Aria Deluxe Overflowed on its own

So about a month ago my Thetford Aria Deluxe flapper stopped working.(listed in a another post). I have ordered a replacement. This weekend wife and I got up were watching some TV when we hear the pump going on the toilet. I open the lid and the flush water is going into the bowl, and the bowl if full !!!! And the pump is not stopping, the water is now pouring out on the floor ! Ran and got towels placed them on the floor around the toilet, ran outside and cut off the water supply, came back in and the overflow had stopped. Unplugged the power to toilet. I called Thetford and asked if there was a recall and they said no. This is a very bad situation, what if we were not in the RV, the whole RV would have been flooded. There should be an automatic shut off of water built into the toilet that would prevent this from happening. Your thoughts ?

RE: Thetford Aria Toilet replacement

The parts to replace are $175, plus install, so maybe $300 to $350 total. And just week the control board went out on the same toilet. That is $175 part plus labor to install. Add it all up and a new one is about the same

Thetford Aria Toilet replacement

So my electric toilet won't open up and flush. Thetford Aria. I thought I would get a manual one that fits the same footprint. The Aria Classic has the same footprint, great. The cost for the manual one is $500, same price as the electric one. How can that be ? Anyone have a cheaper toilet that fits the same footprint ?

RE: Looking at a Class A, price check please

Tranny replaced means that the original miles are not accurate. Also add to your list, replace all batteries that are older than 1 year, house and engine

Toilet Flapper won't open up

Went to flush the Tecma toilet, the water went into the bowl but the flapper on the bottom did not retract to let everything out. What's the fix on this one ?

New AC's Cooling Much better than the old ones

My original AC units 2, 13500 and 15000 btu's were 10 years old. I replaced them with 2 15000 btu Penguin II High Capacity Air Conditioner's and I added a 3rd unit of the same type. I stay out in the Palm Springs area in the summer where it gets HOT HOT ! With my old units once it got to 100 outside you felt it inside. 105 and over it was time to bug out. Now with 2 of the new units going it is cold at 100 degrees, and at 105 (so far 1 day) with all 3 units going full blast it was 71 inside the RV. These new units are soooo much better than my old ones.

RE: It's always something

People's posts are always interesting, they make assumptions in the absence of facts in the original posts, and make statements based on their experience, which may not work for the OP. But in the end its good to get all info. A misstatements: 1. AC units are $700 2. If you don't do any maintenance in 11 years this is what happens 3. You should fix your RV and not outsource it Dometic 15000 AC units are $1450 Do you really think I could go 11 years and not change batteries (3 times) house and engine, tires 2 times, oil changes every 1 to 2 years ? I have fixed and continue to fix the little things, the items on my list were outsourced as I can't do them, and the RV resort I stay in won't allow it. Thanks

RE: It's always something

$700 AC units I think not. Here is what I had installed and they are great, 3 15,000 units put out a lot of cold AC. Here is the one I added. http://www.campingworld.com/shopping/item/Penguin-II-High-Capacity-Air-Conditioner-with-Heat-Pump-Black/72425/&?&affiliateid=5193&gclid=CjwKEAjwjpeqBRCDiKqliK2aiicSJAAgKD2FUhMbwMvhmjAHf1U7IhfrlW5Jpf2fboI8dnNSHPbpohoCUpnw_wcB

RE: It's always something

You are right I farmed out all the items above. Except the engine battery replacement. I have replaced the drawer slide brackets several times, but that was a temporary fix and I wanted a long term fix this time. The house batteries I paid $75 in labor to have them replaced, well worth it as I don't want to rupture another disk in my back. All the other items are beyond my skill level and physical ability to perform. But Robert, If you ever head out to Palm Springs area I will gladly let you do my next repairs, if you are so inclined. I can provide you and your rig a free place to stay at Motor Coach Country Club, what do you think ?
