RE: fleetwood rv

Fleetwood (Rev Group) sells direct. But they are high priced. Headlights for my 05 Fleetwood that are $90 on EBay are $450 from Fleetwood. A chrome exhaust tip was $275. They have to keep the prices high to recover the cost of the warranty repairs because they refuse to train the help right and take the the sloppy workmanship as quality.

RE: Wiring mess found behind shower wall

I got enough saw dust out of my ceiling and under the dinette to stuff an elephant I just saved mine for fire starter.

RE: Wiring mess found behind shower wall

That is a minor disaster. Nice job on the cleanup. Should have seen the several messes in my 2016 Bounder. I understand the wire looms are made for several different models but just stuffing wires in the cavity hoping don't rub through till the warranty runs out is criminal IMO. I really liked the two water lines in a three inch hole through the floor pulled so tight it was a job to get some split duct around the pex, in two places. The plus was that they didn't bother to fill at least three holes, that I have found so far, with foam so at least I could identify a potential problem. Then there is the propane lines just tossed over the frame rubbing and not tied down and same with the jack lines. Or the front left jack mounting bolt so the bolt cut through the Ford wiring harness split duct just nicking a wire when I found it. I got more but we have all been there and got the t-shirt.

RE: Double hitch receiver for bike rack and 4 down towing

Just do a web search for "duel hitch receiver" and you will get a large list. etrailer.com is a good source.

RE: Route 138

I think 58 and I5 would be a better choice. From south of Eugene where 58 hits I5 your only about an hour south to Roseburg. I respectively disagree. Why go 75 miles south to turn and go NW to I-5? If the OP wants to head to I-5 then south it would be to his advantage just to stay on OR 126 into Eugene/Springfield then south. This is only 20 miles or less to the OR 58/I-5 junction, doesn't have the long downgrade of the Willamette Pass and the road is just as good but does have several small towns to slow for. To the OP I feel it is about a toss up either way you go. But then I'll drive out of my way to avoid a freeway, but unfortunately US 97 is just about one.

RE: .How do you reserve? Online only, by phone or combined.

I very seldom use commercial campgrounds but never have had a problem either way. One of the last ones I stayed at I had to call. They didn't take a credit card over phone just "call if your plans change." I have pending reservations with some local extra tickets for later this summer. Had to call and leave a card number and I asked how much they would charge my card. "Nothing unless you no show, but cancel 48 hours in advance please." I rather do online but I understand the difficulties and cost of the online security for the small business.

RE: Rock protection for toad.

We use a Protect-A-Tow to protect our toad, but there can be some issues installing one on a rear exhaust DP. Yep, that's what I use on my Bounder. Easy to Instal and stow. Fabric won't tear. Only ding I got was when I dollied once before I set up my flat tow and not using any protection. I use a 10" drop hitch and was concerned about it going under it. E-mailed the company and they said cut a hole in it and I'll be fine, it won't tear. That's what I did and good to go.

RE: GM releases new Medium Duty Truck

As an owner of an Express 4500 based Class C, one of the real frustrations of ownership is warranty or Chevy specific service. Despite popular belief, it is very difficult to find a Chevy dealer that will service an RV...at least in our area. For us in Raleigh, we have probably a dozen dealerships within 10 miles. However, the closest dealer that will take in an RV is 108 miles from us! And, the only reason he will take it, is they used to also sell RVs! As such, our next unit will be based on a Ford. Gary If you think Ford locations are any better, think again. Example, I'm in the Portland, OR metro area. The dealer that works on the F-53 is about 20 miles away, but I have a strong distaste for them. They will be a place of last resort for me. According to Ford my next choice is in the Seattle metro area about 170 mile trip. I recall them saying there was one south of here about 250 miles. Somehow they overlooked the one about 90 miles from me that another forum member uses. Go figure.

RE: 7 pin electrical contact cleaner

Got a can of starting fluid around? Couple of squirts and your good to go.

RE: GM releases new Medium Duty Truck

Looks like a work truck. Probably rides like hell with spring suspension. https://www.trucks.com/2018/03/07/chevrolet-silverado-medium-duty-trucks/ is reporting 'the availability of the factory-installed rear air suspension."

RE: removed

I agree I even saw that one in a Police mag when I was working. It is also a Urban Myth Now I want you to visualise the black tank on your RV It has 3 holes in it The vent hole up to the roof. Nobody is going to even THINK that is a gas cap The Toilet And the drain valve There is nothing anyone would stick a siphon hose in anywhere to siphon that tank thinking it was Gasoline. So the story is a MYTH..... As a former police dispatcher and you were never amazed what a meth head would do? LOL

RE: Debris Protector

Give the Protect-A-Tow a look. Rear exhaust pipes can be problematic though. I'm happy with mine too.

RE: Refrigerator shelf ideas?

Look at closet wire shelving installed upside down. Yep. Had to jury-rig in my garage fridge when the glass shelf at the bottom broke.

RE: Fuel filter location on a 2000 Ford E-450

When I had my '07 E-450 it had sat for several days before I changed it and didn't have much trouble. Mine had a two filters listed for it, one was shorter and fatter, other longer and skinnier. My NAPPA filter came with a wrench to release the filter. Mine was inside the left frame rail and had some shielding around it and kinda hard to work around. Knife sharp too. Golf tee in the line when you disconnect it is supposed to help the fuel drain running down your arms.

RE: SW6D acting up

Both solenoids need to open to light. If one is bad it is likely to be the one closest to the tank. White-Rodgers makes it, or is the replacement. I know PPL Motorhome sold them. I'll see if I can find the part number and edit this later. EDIT: It is a White-Rodgers 3475

RE: Been looking for months.....Help!

My 2016 Bounder 34T Anniversary Edition meets your wants at 35'4." Has a Splendie combo unit, but it also has the residential refer but that was part of the upgrades. Fleetwood discounted the model in the 2017 lineup. Last time I looked there was a couple on RVTrader.

RE: Road information US Hwy 20 central Oregon

I guess you can say it depends on the destination. Since you are using the #216 as a landmark I am guessing you are heading to that area. 20 after you leave Vale is sort of a nothing drive. Decent road and won't give you any problems. Figure fuel in Vale/Ontario, Burns and Bend with Burns being the higher price. Crossing the Cascades on 20 may not be to your liking but is doable. It is rather twisty and has a good downgrade. Maybe there was a reason they call it Tombstone Pass. Since you show Greely as home I'm guessing you have seen a mountain road. As others have said 26 is a nice option, then take 126 out of Prineville into Sisters (don't take 242) to Santiam Jct. Watch the speed coming off the hill as you need to make a flying left at the junction and follow 126 into Springfield. You come into I-5 at the #199 so you are only a short drive to the #216. Either way you go have a good trip.

RE: ford front hubcap

Likely two of the fake lug nut covers have small indents on them. Turn them counter-clockwise with your T-Handle wrench or you might need a 1 1/8 inch socket it someone way over tightened them.

RE: Route to Gold Beach Oregon

The roads paulj is referring to are BLM 34-8-36, NF-23 or NF-33. Don't try them unless you want a day trip in a car/pickup. Then be sure you know exactly where you are going. And I wouldn't want to do them at night if you are on the wrong side at nightfall. Be aware that 199 has a rather winding section of about 20 (?) miles. Totally doable some get rather upset about it.
