RE: Will My Class Flip Over?

I won't go to my brothers house anymore as the parking spot he has for me requires too much slope for me to be comfortable. I have parked there but worry the entire time will I flip over on the way out. I say, you can never be too careful. If you detect the "pucker" factor, back out and don't do it. No point risking it. To counter my own point, I have have yet to flip over.

RE: What happened to the other Forums?

Owners, engine, chassis have disappeared on my Firefox brower. Hopefully this is temporary as they are all great resources. And I claim this senior moment as my very own!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sorry about that!I embrace your moment and expect to see it myself at some point. Enjoy.

RE: Fill up air in inner wheel

I just take my motorhome to the dealer where I bought the rear tires, and he checks the pressures for me.I'm sure that works great. When travelling, how do you know if you tires ever lose pressure? I have had stems go bad and start slowly leaking. But, whatever, live how you want.

RE: Who Are WE RV'ers Really?

How about just using it as mobile toilet. That's what the DW calls it.

RE: Tires: 245/70R/19.5

Same size. Have been running XZE LR H. My motorhome drives like a caddy. Tire man tried to get me to something else. I said NO WAY. Just bought 7 of them less than 3 weeks old. Yes, it is costing me more but I will be happy on the road. My second choice was R250 bridgestone but they were just about same price. Similar to the OP, I'm looking to replace 6 245/70R19.5 tires with Michelin. I notice you picked the XZE instead of the XRV. I'd appreciate knowing what drives the decision to go one way or the other. SkipNot sure if you are still asking me or if I already answered however, the XZE I had for 7 years were a perfect ride for me. No sign whatsoever of any cracks or other problems. Even the tire place said you should sell them (my old ones) as they inspected and said years left (lot of good that does me as my new tires were already on).

RE: HWH Jack problem

Read sometime/somewhere that these jacks need to be deployed at least an inch or so to keep pressure. Perhaps Doug can comment on this but I have been in the habit of making sure when I use the jacks that I "use" them instead of just touching the ground.

RE: View blocked by awnings

I have them in shade cloth. You can see through, but they shade instead of blocking. Only way to go IMO.

RE: How to stop neighboring campers from

When I hear these types of stories, I try and picture the layout and configuration of the park. Is it an RV park where many of the residents are full time, or is it a spacious campground full of people fishing and having fun.And by that statement one could assume that OP should just deal with it. Well, he is renting the spot and doesn't want some schmuck walking through it. Believe it or not, not everyone is social nor do they really enjoy their paid-for-space being invaded.

RE: Ford Transmission

Thought it called for Mercon LV.I'm going to have to fall on my sword on this one. Had to review multiple years of owner's guides to figure this one out. Model year 2006 when the 5 speed first hit the F53 chassis it was SP. For model year 2008 Ford switched to LV. The OP's 2011 is LV and the last model year 2015 was LV. With the 6R140 it's still LV. If you need to verify what your transmission requires, and all the other needs regarding proper care and feeding, best go by the owner's manual for your chassis model year. Electronic copies can be found HERE.Dale not wanting to call you out or belittle your knowledge here. Anyone searching for Ford Mercon LV vs SP will find a myriad of confusing Ford guides as to which fluid to use. I spent hours the other night trying to figure it all out again just to make sure I wasn't out of date. From my understanding for my year, 2006, Mercon LV is perfectly fine and prescribed however can be substitued for SP. Anyway, Ford caused this confusion and not the owners. Bottom line, I use LV in mine and will continue to use that but I would caution every owner to spend some time and research exactly which fluid to use as Ford confused many people.

RE: Is this Site Declining and losing Members?

Not worth the effort to post anymore. Too many ********. If you post anything that can be considered opinion, you better have some KY and grab your ankles because it is coming. Only worth asking a question every now and then.

RE: Removing vinyl graphics and painting

Ha, my replacement and paint cost around 6K. Yes, it looks great. Only thing I didn't like was they had to use pinstriping decals over the edge of new paint/old because the new paint was thicker and presented an edge they could not feather in. Good news is after about 6 years, none of that pinstriping has come loose.

RE: ARP Refrigerator Protection

No need to sense level, as running out of level for even a short time will dramatically raise boiler temperatures. And the temperature is much easier to measure than angle, as with angle you also have to account for acceleration, deceleration, bumps, etc. At the Seminar Paul gave at an FMCA Convention, he had a test cooling unit set up with his control unit installed on it. Up on the screen was a temperature monitor he had set up with probe on the refrigerator boiler. He raised one end of the test cooling unit on a 2X4 (so less than 2"). While he talked (less than 5 minutes) we all watched the screen and could see the temperature rising VERY quickly up to the point where the controller turned it off. Then once it cooled down, the controller re-started the cooling unit.Funny, I installed mine carefully, tested it, followed all directions yet I have NEVER had an alarm for overheat, regardless of angle, etc. It appears you either didn't either read or understand how the ARP system works. There are NO ALARMS or any indication that the system has been activated unless you go thru the system menu and pull up that information manually. It simply does what it's designed to do "PROTECT the COOLING SYSTEM" silently and basically in the background. I think, but might be wrong if there are multiple shutdowns over a certain period of time then the system will shut down the unit and it will not come back on automatically until it's reset, but I would have to go back and double check that to see if that's actually true. I just always have my remote unit displaying the boiler temp and that way I know when the cooling unit is actually activated. LarryI knew there would be at least one person who told me I didn't know what I was doing. When I installed mine years ago, it clearly provided instructions for including your visual and/or audio sensors. I did it. Otherwise, how do you know it is working. I'm saying mine has never done anything. Larry, my install is done the right way.

RE: Long Key State Park. Rat infestation.

We were there in October in one of the 50's sites and yes we saw more rats this time than ever. Seems to be worse every year. Northern Florida State Parks have issues with ticks and they won't spray.Just how much should they spray? Some of these parks are in the middle of the woods, animals eat the bugs, they don't need chemicals. Stay out of the parks if you are scared of bugs.

RE: Child seat installation

I don't think the Trooper ever saw how much loose junk (missle hazards) are in an RV. DO NOT let your child face the rear. DO NOT seat them sideways, side impact is not the same as sideways in a front end collision. Make sure the belts are anchored good. I had our granddaughter in the front passenger seat. It was the only good seat, anchor wise, and the seat back protected her from flying missile hazards from the rear.
