RE: Itasca. Shore power.

The original poster has a coach with an AC unit that requires 50A service, but only has a 30A cord. I wonder if the previous owner had changed the cord in the past? I would take a look at the AC breaker panel in the RV to see if the shore power breakers are 50A or 30A. Examining the generator/shore power transfer relay might also shed some information. I cannot understand how a RV with 50A accessories would be wired with a 30A shore power cable. Additionally, what is the generator capable of? Is it a 50A generator with two AC lines out, or a 30A generator with just one AC hot line out? Finding the answers to all these clues might shed some light..... A 30 amp power cord is standard for this model, however a 50 amp power cord was an option. It's wonderful what factory spec sheets tell you.

RE: Erie to Watkins Glen route

You could also take I-90 to NY14. Don't know how 90 is tho... We did the Glen to Niagara this time last year and at least that section of I-90 was ok. That's the way I usually go, was looking to save a little time & miles. Make this trip every year.

RE: Erie to Watkins Glen route

I was on I86 from Erie through to I-88 a few weeks ago, and I don't recall any significant construction nor horrible road conditions. I-86 would be my route of choice for this trip. Thanks, last time I was on it, it was so rough you couldn't go over 40- 45, especially the western end. There was also a lot of construction.

Erie to Watkins Glen route

Will be going to Watkins Glen from Erie KOA next week. Is I86 construction done and how is it thru the Indian nation area, or should I take Thruway and come down along the lake?

RE: Awning rail adjustment

Thanks for the replies. Will have to get to storage lot to work on it.

Awning rail adjustment

Have a Dometic 8500 manual awning that recently started having a problem when retracting it. In order to get the front outer rail to seat properly when rolling it up someone has to put rearward pressure on it or it will not slide over the inner rail. Is there a way to adjust the outer rail?

RE: Eternal bond tape or Dicor?

If you already have the eternabond, that is what I would use. I have a roll of eternabond, but it's only about 2" wide. Just ordered some Dicor

RE: Win10 wake from sleep bypass sign in

When you go to Settings, Account,Sign in options is the first option "Require Sign In, If you've been away, when should Windows require you to sign in again? " That eliminates having to sign in after sleeping.

RE: Interstate 80/Chicago by-pass

Unless there is an accident, I normally have trouble keeping up with traffic with cruise set at 62. Biggest delays are at peak commute times and delays caused by the sun in your eyes. BTW, there is only one tollbooth on 80 in the Chicago area and that's at 294 & 80.

RE: avoiding Chicago area traffic

It'll probably take you longer with a lot of stop and go and traffic lights. As long as you don't hit it at rush hour,won't be bad.

RE: Looking for an Extended Warranty Company

Look into Route 66 Classic Coverage, they list what is NOT covered. Had them for our '94 Adventurer and they were great to work with. More than got the cost back on a generator rebuild. Route 66

RE: So my fridge just died

Was just at National rv refrigeration a month ago. Leon is great to work with and had a good selection of rebuilt units ready for installation. If nothing else, give him a call.

RE: Interesting customer service attitude

Well, if they don't have anyplace in your area, what else can they tell you when you ask for a place in your area? The CS person maybe could have stated it more nicely, but in the end a goose egg is a goose egg. My point was that I was using their website to locate a service location, and it was nowhere near current

Interesting customer service attitude

Have a 2000 Itasca Suncruiser with basement air. Brought it home yesterday to do some work on it and started the a/c. The unit was making a noise I hadn't heard before, so went online to the ColemanAirexcel site to locate a service shop There were 3 shown within 50 miles of me. Phone calls to all 3 resulted in similar answers - we haven't done that for years, but they won't take our name down. Tried calling Airexcel and couldn't get to speak to anyone so sent an email to customer support explaining problem and asked for a call to direct me to a service center. Today I get a call according to caller ID from Airexcel. Pickup phone and get "Hey, how's it going?" I asked who's calling and get " Eric, was told to call you". Explained what I needed and all service centers on their website no longer did service. Response was, I don't have a secret list so if you find somebody let us know. Goodbye. Since they also make the rooftop units, wonder if they treat everyone the same. Obviously, their website is of no help to anyone needing help.

RE: Has anything ever happened that wasn't the RV Park's fault

Chill out westernparkowner. For every problem guest there are 1000 good ones. At our Colorado park we don't have problems, we have opportunities. Sometimes they are opportunities to help a customer understand his rig.That guest made it very clear that it was not my place to help him understand his rig. Get slapped around a few times by those 1 out of 1000 you don't take chances with the other 999. Nice to see you bash your guests on the World Wide Web!! This is your interpretation with out any debate from the guest!! Cool,, lets just all label them as stupid because your so smart!! Great business sense!! But it's OK for people to come on here and bash a campground without the campgrounds response? That happens more often than complaints from a campground.

RE: Are you Disssapointed with Windows 10

Tried 2 different times to upgrade my think pad t500 and went back to win7 both times. 10 was slower and didn't like the fact I have 2 graphics cards. 10 kept insisting I had 2 monitors and the cursor kept disappearing.

RE: Chicago Bypass

Definitely take 294 and before 3 or after 6 would be best.
