RE: Questions about towing CRV's/Jeep Liberty

My CR-V mostly 60-65 but when up to 70 briefly, no issues.

RE: Short generator use

Been exercising mine 2 hours on load every month for 6 years. Starts up and runs like new every time. Have only changed the oil once.

RE: Sunseeker 3050S

One can debate brands and models ad nauseum as to concerns real or perceived. Other than a few minor things that I took issue with, I love my Sunseeker and loved my ROO the same.

RE: Newer RVs that are hard to winterize.....grrrrr

My own experience with finding the water pump was after picking up the unit from the dealer in mid-February, after the RV show as it was a floor model there. Noticed a steady, slow leak behind a lower compartment wall. Realized it was a tiny, $10 plastic valve on the water pump tubing. Of course taking off the compartment molding and the 10 something screws that did not want to come out was the biggest problem. The dealer replaced the item. I am another who does not use AF or blows out the lines. Gravity, with a minimal heat source has not failed me for over 10 years with two rigs. I also agree with keeping the tank valves open as opposed to closed. To each his/her own. Always good reading though as to options and concerns.

RE: I-pass mount

As others have noted, all good locations. I have found that it also depends upon the respective toll booth readers. I can go through one with no issues and the next trip it goes red and rings the bell. There is never an issue with overhead readers whatsoever.

RE: Safety Cones - Do you carry them?

I have 3 triangles and flares since day one. Recently I bought one of these for myself and now give them as gifts. As a former traffic cop I was impressed with the utility and visual recognition of them. And no, I am not a paid spokesperson. Rechargeable LED Flares

RE: Sun coming in skylights

I use reflectix on all my windows and skylight vents as required by sunrise!

RE: Forest River motor homes

If the Amish RV builders are having a bad day, all brands can have issues! I bought mine at a show with no real intention to do so. 5 1/2 years later and at 20,000 miles it is still making me smile. Sure, replace this, repair that, cuss at those, blah, blah, blah. On a scale of 1-10 I give mine a 9. Nothing is a perfect 10.

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.
