RE: Problem filling the tank!

Interesting. And here I thought it was just me. For the first 5 years/15,000, no issues. More recently, almost every fill up. I slow the fill pace down, turn the nozzle upside down, etc. and for the most part once there is a steady draw all is fine. I figured it was a vapor lock issue but not sure how to address it. Good info.

RE: how many leave their coach outside vs inside ?

Outside since day one. I head out every month for several weeks at a time, although not full-timing. I had looked at pole enclosures but just cannot pull the plug for the dollars. I am in/out of the RV so much with the slides in/out as well that a cover would be problematic as well. I keep an eye on the roof seal and have replaced all my standard vent covers already.

RE: brake buddy

My Classic starts as all red. With each of the five test button activations they disappear one at a time. All five should become green if it is working properly. The troubleshooting instructions are clear about problem identification.

RE: GoodSam vs AAA

Call me crazy. I have both. Just in case and/or just because.

RE: Blown tire advic3

I missed the Michelin recall date by a few months. Although I only had 15,000 on at 5 years I began to notice slight circumferential cracking on the sidewalls. My tires are always covered. I stayed with Michelin, got a great price and continued driving down the road knowing I did not push any limits. I am a firm believer in not sacrificing time and/or price for safety.

RE: How do you stabilize your Class C when parked for camping?

Putting it in Park always does the trick. Stabilizers are overrated on Class C units. And why add the extra weight of two if not four units? I bought this years ago for the sake of argument just in case more than a few folks were staying in the RV. http://www.dyersonline.com/valterra-stabilizer-stand.html Fortunately it is usually only me and once I am in bed, nothing is moving but me.

RE: Re securing the cab/cabover joint/seam

Every day is a new day as it relates to issues, regardless of manufacturer. Your detailed explanation as to the repair process was great.

RE: Towed vehicle battery charge line

Take a look at an isolator kit like: ToadCharge to protect your car battery from coach loads. I know most folks are comfortable with DIY installs and back in the day every vehicle I owned I wired this and that, usually successfully. I bought the Toad-Charge and like having the charge regulator with the status indicator lights.

RE: Slide Topper - Help

Interesting to see this two years after I had what was a confounding issue. On an extended out of state trip my short bedroom slide would only push out halfway. I could not see anything unusual and the electrics appeared to be engaging properly as well. On top of that I had zinged and slightly bent my generator exhaust pipe on a concrete median on the Cross Bronx Expressway, so I was not the proverbial happy camper. Come to find out, when I had made contact with the anti-billow arm on a street sign next to my house coming home after my last trip, it had rotated such that it prevented the full rotation of the awning roller when the slide was actuated. Did not break anything but it was something I could not figure out without professional advice and assistance. Always something to learn.

RE: It is the little things drive me crazy.

I see nothing wrong with all that. Improvise, adapt, overcome. Call me crazy but it becomes second nature even with all the stuff that does drive one up a wall.

RE: Slide-out Toppers

Can't imagine not having one.

RE: Cover vs Starting Class C

As others have stated. I keep mine uncovered, plugged in, heated, start genny for 2 hours once a month, run engine as needed and move snow off roof as soon as possible. 5 years without an issue, although I was always out every month as well. Other than NYE weekend I am a little behind on my getting out.

RE: are scissor-type stability jacks worth it?

I would never suggest you should not. However, I have never found the need for them or any other stabilizer for that matter. Once in a blue moon I use the lightweight universal aluminum folding stabilizer on the rear frame.

RE: Walk around while Class C in motion?

Just because you can, doesn't mean you should. 32 years in law enforcement has provided me a plethora of negative examples when common sense or motor vehicle laws have been dismissed for personal convenience.

RE: Do you drain the gas out of your Onan Carb?

Exercise, StaBil, No Draining. X2. Going on 5 years no issues.

RE: Which automatic sat dish for Dish Network service?

DVR and X2? As long as you understand you can only watch/record 1 satellite channel (the channel you are watching or a channel while you are away/asleep) then that combo is an excellent option. Roger that. Thanks. I know it is not a standard DVR. Heck, if I really wanted to watch something that bad I would not be DVRing it were I in front of the TV! But it would be nice to grab a couple of programs from time to time.

RE: Which automatic sat dish for Dish Network service?

Been thinking about the DVR option now that the X2 has proved its worth. Just realized my 2006 Seagate external drive has the required hardware. What's another $40, eh?

RE: Which automatic sat dish for Dish Network service?

I have no experience with a roof mounted satellite dish. However, having pushed my Tailgater for more than 2 years often in less than optimal conditions and getting less than optimal results with the Western arc sats, I went to the PathwayX2 two weeks back. Spent a week at my fav, less than optimal results state park. Pretty much same Western arc issues. But the magic of the Pathway's Eastern arc swing was super special and had 60 signal strength on all three sats which was totally unheard of using the Tailgater, even at the beach.

RE: Airless tire valve extensions

Similar personal experiences with low pressure and also a flat as a result of the valve nut coming loose from the constant adjustment of the valve extender. New tires and one piece extended valves as well in the near future should create less anxiety.

RE: New DISH Subscriber With Questions

Although it gets old dealing with the CSRs regarding the Zip Code deal, I too have found that a request to bump your receiver can make a big difference as already mentioned. I was trying to get assistance while in Canada recently (they did not need to know that since I had a decent signal) but the CSR could not get it through her head that I had a Tailgater and could NOT receive Eastern arc sats and kept asking me about their signal strength. And she was not an off shore CSR. But I also agree it is better to talk with a DISH Tech Support or RV Specialist at times.
