RE: Sail Switch or Something Else?

I Have listened at the outside and no sound of it trying to light.

Sail Switch or Something Else?

Suburban SF-30F about six years old. Problem has been ongoing for several years but now has hit critical. Every once in a while over the years the unit would fail to light, shut down, I would turn off and let it reset. Sometimes it would start, sometimes not. Take the grill off, bang around and it would fire up. Sometimes it would cycle 3-5 times then fail to light. Other times it will run for days and not give a problem. Batteries are good and charged and it makes no difference if on shore power or not. My first thought is sail switch, but the fact that banging around in the cabinet or driving makes me wonder if something else. I don't mind throwing some parts at it since I need to pull it anyway but any ideas? I am guessing that the intake/exhaust tubes are kind of a press fit into the exterior ports. Am I correct or is there some sort of gasket that I need?

Crater Lake/Mazama Campground

Anyone with recent stay at Mazama Campground in Crater Lake Park? It has been at least 22 years since we have been there. For several reasons DW doesn't like not having cell phone access, AT&T. When I told her there likely wouldn't be phone coverage in the park she is ready to nix the visit. Can someone confirm? Option might be going to Diamond Lake RV, doubtful for coverage, or Collier State Park which I am sure would have coverage. I suggested tossing our phones for the trip...That was the wrong thing to say.:E

Foodsaver/Vacuum Sealers

Could anyone chime in about these? I am looking at one http://www.costco.com/FoodSaver%C2%AE-4880-2-in-1-System.product.100071662.html and wondering about the speed of operation. We get lots of ground beef and chicken breast in bulk and have found the beef tends to get freezer burn before we can get through it all. Reviews at Costco and Amazon seem positive.

RE: 2005 ford f450 6.0 sunseeker class c

You might try the Forest River Forums at http://www.forestriverforums.com I would be surprised the Sunseeker has the switching valves for the water system. I have an '07 2860 and only have the gravity fill.

RE: Ever been totally rained out?

That is alot of rain for sure. We once woke up to six inch standing water under our trailer and surrounding area due to a minor flood on the oregon coast at Devil's Lake state park. What memories. LOL Must have been the same time we were there. We must have been parked on the high ground though, it was only four inches deep.

RE: 2007 sunseeker

We bought our 2007 2860DS from a local rental and have no complaints about the build quality. Last year I got a bug and we started to look at some of the entry level A diesels as well as some gas powered units. The glaring poor quality of the units turned us off and we decided just to keep what we have. I did replace shocks though I am not impressed with my choice and doing them again is on my short list. Replaced the front and rear sway bars with HD Hellwig which was the best thing anyone can do with that chassis. Just ditched the two 12 volt batteries in place of two Trojan T-105's 6 volt golf cart batteries http://www.trojanbattery.com/product/t-105/ and upon the advice of Randy at Best Converter replaced the WFCO power converter with a 55 amp PowerMax. http://www.bestconverter.com/55-Amp-4-Stage-Main-Board-Replacement_p_522.html#.U5jB3rS9KSM In all I have no complaints about our Sunseeker, it seems for the most part as well,put together as anything and a whole lot better than some of the overpriced new junk out there.

RE: Oregon 126 or 36

Don't take Hy 36. It is doable but you won't like it. Rough and narrow. If you thought 126 was bad you won't like 36. The part between Chesire and Swisshome is worse than a Forest Servive road. Low hanging trees will have you on the centerline.it will take a lot longer than 126. The only difference between 36 and Galice to Gold Beach route is that it is flatter. If you are going north on I-5 send me a PM and I will give you a good route to take north bypassing the West Eugene traffic.

RE: Costco 6V GC battery price?

The t-105 is 11.07 inches high. If your going to boondock much I would go with the T-105s. Here is a link to them and it gives the specs. http://www.trojanbattery.com/markets/mr/6v/

RE: Costco 6V GC battery price?

As of a week ago Costco in Tigard was $87.95. Item number 245725. I just swapped my two 12 volts out and went to the Trojan T-105's for $135.41 each but they are higher amp rating.

RE: Possible to swap booth out for a sofa in C?

Took our booth out and replaced with two rockers. Had to remove the seat belt hold down mounts and relocate an outlet. Had to steal a piece of carpet from under the couch to patch a spot. Only time we wish we had the booth is when the grand kids are with us and the weather isn't nice.

RE: T-105 or T-125

Thanks for the advice. While looking for information I stumbled across a website that said the T-105's had a better duty cycle than the T-125's. Thought I bookmarked it but guess I didn't. Anyway I am going with the T-105's and while I am at it changing out the WFCO converter to a Progressive Dynamics one.

RE: T-105 or T-125

RE: T-105 or T-125

Whaddya got now? How does that work for you?Two Trojan SCS-200. About two year old but one has a dead cell. Looking back I think someone unloaded some old stock on me, now that I read the date code one the bad one, they never preformed the way I thought they should have.

T-105 or T-125

Need to replace my two house batteries due to one having a bad cell. I am on the fence as to go with the T-105 or spring a little more for the T-125's. Anyone care to give their insight? I am not sure the additional cost of $22+ is worth it. We have a tendency to dry camp for 2-3 days at a time and have a generator for when we need 120 volts.

RE: Columbia River Gorge Washington State Campground?

What's your height? I'd have to get the Truckers Atlas out of the truck, but there is a warning on two tunnels on WA-14 between Vancouver and Mary Hill SP You are good for 13'6" I know for a fact. The low part is at the shoulder.
