RE: Newbie winterization question '06 Knight 38PDQ

I'll just mention that many, many people don't bother with the Pink Stuff except to pour it down the drains to fill the traps and put a little in the bottoms of the grey and black tanks. The reason is that it takes so much water to get the pink taste and color out of the fresh water in the spring. And with most of the US in drought conditions, it's just prudent to use the 'Air' method for your fresh water lines. Air method uses an inexpensive tire pump to blow water out of the fresh water lines starting at the inside shower head. I just open the lowest faucet and blow it out there. Also remove the pump and drain it. I use Pink Stuff after I blow out my lines. It is easy to eliminate the pink taste in the Spring by sanitizing the water system which I do. You may find you cannot get all of the water out of the valve that is operated by the foot pedal in the toilet, or the valve in the back of the Refrigerator that controls the water to the Ice maker. All it takes is a small amount of water in either valve and you will be replacing, as I learned the hard way. One-two gal. of Pink Stuff is very inexpensive IMO to be sure.

RE: Towing Honda Pilot with Jayco Melbourne Class C

If your Honda Pilot is newer than 2004, Honda does not recommend towing any Pilot beyond 2004 four down. Suggest you check your Owners manual.

RE: Dumping Gray Water In Your Campsite

In South Carolina it is illegal in RV Parks, etc. It could get you a fine.

RE: 2006 travelsupreme autoleveler will not work

I have had this 40 ft. Coach since new. Today is first time auto leveler did not work. When i push autolevel it just makes a noise and shuts off. It doesn,t deflate the airbags or start any movement of the jacks. Anyone have any help for me??? Thanks Had the same issue on mine after it had been sitting for a while - Ground wire and the connectors all needed to be cleaned up. If I recll - ended up having the local mobile tec come out to find it 9on my Coach it was passenger side front under the bumper/fender) - took some time but everything worked as new after the connections and the ground were cleaned. Hope this helps, If this doesn't correct the problem I would contact Equalizer for their technical support, Friday as they will be closed for the 4th and not sure if open on Monday.

RE: Maybe I should get an older DP

Skip the first one and rent one for only weeks of use a year. Not Cost effective to buy one considering maintenance, storage, etc.

RE: Flashlight for camping needed

I highly recommend Mag Lights. http://maglite.com/ I have a several Mini Mag LED's that I have found very bright that come with a nylon belt holster to carry and are brighter then many C or D size Mag lights. But if you prefer the D size 2 0r 3 cell LED lights are even brighter and have a Lifetime warranty. Lowe's Stores often sell them at Christmas for very low sale prices, vs. retail.

RE: installer refrigerator

I recommend Precision Painting in Bremen, IN. They do all types of Interior work, and other services. Call 866.909.4473 (Toll Free) and talk to Paul Conley, Service Manager and tell him you were recommended by Arnie Krause. He has done all of the Service on our Travel Supreme since purchased. http://www.precisionpaintingrv.com/

RE: How many of you simply don't bother with hookups?

We start out with full water 100 gal. tank as one of our pets has problems with strange water. Our Black and Gray tanks are 60 gals. On an overnight stay I only hookup electric. I usually don't dump the black tank unless it is 60% or more unless I am going to a electric and water site for extended stay and no sewer hookup. We very seldom dry camp so that is not an issue. The majority of the parks we stay in are water and electric only with a dump station, that we use when we leave.

RE: Freightliner Vers Mountian master chassis

I have a Spartan chassis on my Travel Supreme and very satisfied with the ride and performance. In the past American Eagles, and their other models all came with Spartan chassis's. I.E. Spartan was a higher line chassis for many models in the past compared to Freightliner. When T.S. first introduced the Envoy model it had a Freightliner chassis and CAT. engine, and after one year switched to Spartan and Cummins.

RE: Progressive Industries EMS-HW30C install by the factory

My display is wired in my electrical bay, where my power cord and transfer switch is located for my MH. It has a switch that turns it off and on. I check it when I connect to the power pedestal to confirm amps, and no codes. Works great for me.

RE: So I am eternabonding my roof

I did my roof about 4-5 years ago and no problems since then. Be sure you have the tape in the right place as when you put is down it is there to stay. I used a small wallpaper roller to roll out any bubbles that might have happened and get a good seal. I even did the roof on my enclosed car trailer, works great.

RE: tire pressure gauges

Question on why you are running 110 psi. Have you weighed the coach axles (preferable each tire position) and used the tire manufacturer's table to come up with that number? If not and you are running the "Max Pressure Cold" imprinted on the tire sidewall you will experience a far harder ride than necessary and not be doing your tires any good. There are many threads on proper tire pressure on this forum. Maybe running 110 psi is what weighing each wheel position, and tire Mfg. recommendations suggest. I run 105 psi as what all of the calculations recommended. It all depends on axle ratings, tire size, etc.

RE: Shower sunshade?

I cut a pc. of 1" Styrofoam and place it inside and it works great. If we want it out for taking a shower we just remove it and replace it when we are done.

Dry Cleaning Fiberglass Roof

The June 2015 issue of MotorHome magazine has an interesting article Dry Cleaning a fiberglass roof with waterless product. http://washwax.com/waterless-wash-products/ It sounds interesting. Has anyone tried this product and what is your opinion of it?

RE: Floor wax on motorhome

Do a search for 'Red Max Pro'. A lot of people like it. I started using Red Max Pro about 4-6 years ago and would re coat it every other year. Last year it started to flake off and now I will have to strip it and either start over of use something else. It looked great the first couple of years on my roof. The June issue of Motorhome has an interesting article "Dry Cleaning" your fiberglass roof. A product evaluation of Wash Wax All. It sounds interesting.

RE: Backing up with toad

I only had to unhook once, when I came to a railroad trestle that was 10' at a 90 degree to the two lane road and I was 12'3". I unhooked and found a driveway I could back into and turn around and my wife followed me to another route to the CG, that was only a few miles away. There were no road signs advising of a low trestle(low bridge with height). CG owner had complained to the State several times about this.

RE: Do you travel with your interior doors open or shut

We have a sliding door that we close and latch. Our bathroom door is closed. When it is very hot outside the heat in the bedroom will heat up the front of the MH, thus we keep it closed. We also run the gen when the outside temps. reach 80 degrees plus as our dogs in crates get warm and the dash AC will not keep the kitchen area cool enough so run the front Heat Pump on AC, works best for us.

RE: How do I level a dual axle trailer???

I carried one 2x8x6' and several 12" pcs. of 2x4's and 1-2 pcs. of 4x4's and elevated one end to make a ramp either backed on to elevate or pull forward to elevate the trailer then blocked the wheels on the ramp. Easier than making two small ramps for both wheels, IMO. It took me less than 5 min. to set up the ramp.
