Roadside Assistance Coach Net vs. Safe Ride Motor Club

My Coach net roadside assistance expired and they want $249 to start me back up as a new member. I called FMCA and found out that they don't use coach net anymore they use Safe Ride. They want $109 to sign me up. So my question is which one is better and which ones have you used. Thanks

New Flooring

I was thinking of replacing the tile and carpet in my RV. When I looked at how they were installed, it appears that all the flooring was installed prior to placing the cabinets and slides. So taking up the the old tile and carpet will be difficult. I am wondering if it can be done without removing the slides and cabinets. Does anyone have any experience doing this type of project, with leaving the cabinets in place and if yes how did you do it ? Thanks

RE: Shower/Bath Tub Maintanence

Shower/Bath Tub Maintanence

I have a large shower/bath tub and after 12 years I have noticed that water is leaking out where the glass meets the tub. No problem, I need to re-caulk and seal the leaks. What the bigger issue is, is that the tub has rough surfaces, where the glass and tub come together, almost like rust, but I'm not sure it is rust or just buildup from the hard water. My question: Whats the best way to fix this ? Thanks

RE: Installing a dish receiver

How many cables are coming out of this dish ? Trace each one with the above mentioned tool, or unplug all but one and connect them one at a time to your receiver and see if you can connect. Are you sure the dish is aligned with the satelite, is it a dish to goies and finds the satelite, or do u have to align it manually ? If you have to do it manually, get a signal strength meter, so you see when you are getting close. You need to tell us more about the dish so we can help you.

Rubber Roof Coating on Fiberglass roof

I have a 12 year old Manadalay 40 foot with a fiberglass roof. I have the roof cleaned regularly and waxed. When I had it cleaned this week the wash guy said the caulk needed to be replaced and he recommended I seal the roof with a rubber coating. I have had the caulk removed and replaced before but never had a rubber seal applied. Do I need this for a fiberglass roof, have you guys done it and how did it work out, which type of rubber sealant is best ? Thanks

RVAir - AC Air Filter Reviews

Has anyone used the RVAir AC air filter products ? Looks good but I was wondering if it restricts the air flow and cooling ability ? If you have one let me know if you like it. Thanks

RE: Electrical Problem

THE FINAL FIX: I checked the connections on all the outlets, and all were good. I replaced the one for the fridge, as it was severely rusted. No power. So I called in an expert. He check the GFI and found that it was wired incorrectly. Even though I had wired it just like the old one. Turns out it was a different type of GFI with different wiring. Once he did this, everything was up and working. So in the end, my GFI had gone bad, and I wired it incorrectly. Problem solved. Thanks for the help guys

RE: Electrical Problem

Thanks guys. I am at a park hooked into 50 amp I have one of those $500 surge, low voltage protectors from camping world hooked up. This circuit has been an issue on and off since I bought the RV. It trips once a week on average and if I get get the RV washed while plugged in, it will trip. I think water is caused a short on the outside where the fridge plugs into the outlet. I will check all the outlets next to make sure some of the wires have not come loose. Kming.

Electrical Problem

So the power went out to the right side of the RV. No power to the outlet, no power to the fridge, and guess what no propane in the tank (way to go dummy). So I ran an extension cord to the fridge to keep it cool. I replaced the GFI outlet, I replaced the breaker, and still no power. The only thing left is the wire. Have I missed anything ?

RE: Proper Shifting to Reduce Engine Temperature

Triker, did you even read my original post, it talks to each one of your items. The only thing I did differently this time was go to 2nd gear and slow down. I always downshifted to 3rd when going uphills. As far as cleaning the radiator from other posts, I spray and clean from the front and back of both radiators.

Proper Shifting to Reduce Engine Temperature

I have had my RV for 12 years and I think I learned something new. From the very first month I had the RV I experienced overheating when traveling in temps over 100 degrees outside. I have a CAT C7 and the temp alarm trips at 220 degrees. I took it in to FL and they showed me how both radiators were caked with oil, dirt and road debris, and they cleaned it all out. I then found out my oil sump was not plumed to the end of my RV, so the oil that comes off this hose was going directly into the fan and onto the radiator. I fixed this by having it plumed to the end past the radiator. Then once a year I break out the simple green and clean both the radiators. All has been good for a while. This month I decided to go to Northern AZ. I'm heading north on 17 going up, up, up. Then I hit this really steep grade and the temp starts going up, up up. I manually downshift to 3rd gear to keep up the momentum. The temp goes to 222 degrees. I try something I never tried before, I downshift to 2nd gear and let off the gas a little so the transmission is not trying to go to 3rd gear. When all of a sudden the engine temp start to drop, and keeps dropping all the way to 213, well below the overheat alarm. So now I'm thinking I should downshift to 2nd gear when I hit these really steep grades. Did I finally figure out how to drive my RV correctly in this situation ? Let me know, and please refrain from saying "yes stupid" or "it only took you 12 years to figure this out, DUMMY ?"
