Thanks Doug. I will call Monday morning. You guys rock.

Thank you my friend. My symptoms mirror yours. I could take it in under warranty but there is aditional charges from the dealer so I might be money ahead to try a few things. Number one being pilot asembly. It is a small gamble.
Oasisbob 11/18/17 11:23am Tech Issues

So I could change out the pilot assembly, however, the pilot lights fine and burns bright initally. Could the pilot orphis be closing up as it heats? As I said previously the pilot light kind of "burps" prior to it and burner going out. And since they go out and gas stops flowing would that dismiss the thermacouple? I really apreciate your input on this evan though I may not sound like it questioning your advice. What are your thoughts?

RE: Dogs in RV

Some of this depends on the dog. Some will be quiet and others bark as soon as you leave. I put a digital thermometer in the windshield dash for folks to see so they know the dog is not baking. In Oregon it is legal to break out a qindow to save an animal in distress. If temp goes above 80 we eat outside with the dog maybe a park.

The gas flow seems tine as the pilot & burner will both work well for quite a few minutes. Then the pilot begins burping. So if the pilot flame is not placed dead center in the thermacouple why would the burner come on initially? This is the part of the problem that perplexes me
Oasisbob 11/17/17 07:28pm Tech Issues

So the thermacouple needs to be precisely in the center of the pilot flame correct? Can I bend to adjust if needed?
Oasisbob 11/17/17 05:34pm Tech Issues

New Saburban oven purchased this year off Amazon. Pilot lights fine and burns bright. I dial up temp and burner comes on no problems. I reach desired temp and burner lowers in brightness and pilot kind of "burps" going on & off. Then both pilot & burner shut off. Thermacouple? Or do these symptoms suggest something else to you? This unit hasa two year warranty but I hate takin my rig into a dealer and being hit with some not covered charge. Any thoughts?

RE: How do you guys look for RV Parks?

I do some on line research when going to a new area reading reviews. I make a list in priority of reviews. When we were young we just winged it. After spending a night in a parking lot and another in a park right next to a fast food drive through, you want fries with that? , we learned to plan ahead

RE: Poop water is everywhere

Thanks for sharing your story. I laughed so hard nearly spit coffee on the key board. LOL You may laugh as well in a few years. And on the plus side you may have a really green spot on the lawn next year.

RE: Aluminum vs Fiberglass TT

If given the choice I will take aluminum every time. Here is why. Aluminum is proven and easy to replace. Ever hear of aluminum delaminating? Nope. Seems every time the RV industry comes up with something new it is for them, not the consumer. The latest scam is frameless windows. How can that be a good thing? Go aluminum

RE: End of the year wrap up... So how was 2017?

We love winter camping. Fewer folks. Though we camp less. It is the time of year I inventory the trailer, do maineanance and improvements. Amazing the things and supplies we can remove or change out.

RE: Storage bays: carpeted or rhinocast?

I suggest astro turf. Keeps stuff from sliding and you can shake it out if needed.

RE: Witch dehumidifer to purchase?

My unit is big and does not need to be. A smaller water collecting electric unit that will modify to drain outside is good. Home Depot has several. Read the reviews. Many are equipped with a hose connection. Yes, they will collect that much water. Set the humidity level at whatever you like and forget it.

Just heard on the Portland news we are where the tiny house trend started. I have watched Tiny House builds on TV. They appear very heavy and do not appear very road worthy. I keep wondering if these people have ever heard of an RV? What am I missing here?

RE: Condensation

Our hybrid TT of 15 years built up lots of condensation during winter camping. Seemed unavoidable until I started using a water collecting dehumidifier. Now we have virtually zero condensation. In fact we can dry wet clothing over night simply by hanging it in the bathroom. We have collected two gallons of water from the air in 12 hours. If you have shore power this is the way to go

RE: Camping is popular

As helpful as you all are I realized I needed to contact the campground directly which I did. A nice lady returned my call and told me if one loop ends up being full they would allow folks to use the closed loop. Sometimes it is better to go directly to the campground so I have learned. I did find lots of info on OSP and data available in regard to usage. So they know the score but do not always act accordingly

Camping is popular

Some of the best camping, in my opinion, is after Labor day. And I guess others are catching on. I went to make reservations for Thanksgiving weekend at Champeog state park here in Oregon and all RV sites are full. So muchg for that idea. My frustration builds when I learn they close down the A loop this time of year. So do they not see the need? At $31 a night they are turning away revenue. What am I missing here?

RE: Well, so much for waiting to winterize....

I got total winterization time down to 15 minutes. We camp almost year round so I get lots of practice.

RE: Hybrids must be hibernating

We were out last weekend. Some of the best camping is after Labor Day & before Christmas in our opinion. We are never cold in the hybrid. Feels like home as long as we have no noisey neighbors that is

RE: ? Concrete Pad Question

I would go five and use rebar. Remember expansion joints. Where we live I used black top and it is considered temperary and no permit was needed.
