RE: Missing RV'er in Ocala, FL

You can also prefix emergency contacts with A-ICE on your cell phone. That way they show up first.

RE: EZ Pass

Illinois IPass transponder is not vehicle specific. List all your vehicle by license number and move the transponder to whichever vehicle your are driving. Have one transponder that I move from my car to motorhome as needed. We have 2 transponders, 1 for me and 1 for wife and they combine them for 1 $40 account that gets replenished as required.

RE: Generator runs 30 minutes, shuts off

Thanks for all the replies. I decided to try changing the oil from a multi viscosity synthetic to a straight SAE 30. Generator was still running under heavy load 2.5 hours later. The only other difference was ambient temperature was 84 instead of 90. Will see if this really solved the problem.

RE: Generator runs 30 minutes, shuts off

Possibly the oil is thinning out and reducing the oil pressure enough to trip off the generator engine. You may want to try 10W30. But 2 -3 minutes wouldn't be enough for oil to cool that much that it would run another 30, would it?

RE: Generator runs 30 minutes, shuts off

Oil level in the generator correct? When did you chamge the generator fuel filter? Do the simple things first. Yes and fuel filter changed 9/14, about 250 hours ago

Generator runs 30 minutes, shuts off

My Onan NHE 6500 just started with this problem. Starts fine and will run for 30 minutes with a/c on. Shuts off and will restart if I wait about 3 minutes and runs for another 30 or so minutes. If I try to start it before the 3 minutes, starter cranks but engine won't catch. Gas tank is over 3/4, oil is full, new air cleaner, so I'm at a loss.

RE: Tom Tom Go vs Co-Pilot on 10"Tablet

Been using Tom Tom Go on my 10" Lenovo tablet for 2 years now. It works as well as, if not better than, my TomTom GPS. No WIFI needed as everything is on tablet. Hook up to WiFi and you get live traffic, as well as construction, traffic delays with alt route suggestions. This all costs you a onetime yearly fee. Basic routing without traffic, etc. is always free. Since I started using GO, I don't use the GPS.

RE: James Island, SC

Hard to get any more hole in the wall local good sea food then Bowens Island Seafood just a few miles out towards Folly Beach. If you want some good local BBQ, check out Melvin's on Folly Rd just a little ways back towards Wapoo Cut. I'll second this. Real hole in the wall, real good food

RE: Wrangler TJ

Been towing our '02 TJ sport ( 6 cyl, auto) for last 6 years, over 40,000 miles + 98,000 on/off road. Hook it to tow bar, transfer case in neutral, trans in park, key in "OFF", and a way we go. Takes all of 3 minutes.

RE: Question about winterizing

After blowing everything out, I leave all drains, faucets and water heater open/out. Just pink stuff in the traps and fill toilet bowl.

RE: Campgrounds near Washington D.C.?

Just came from Cherry Hill. Tried driving into DC once. 6:30 AM took 40 minutes in to White House area. Trip back from Dulles Air and Space was 35 miles 1 hour 50 minutes at 3 PM. Rest of time we took the bus and Metro. Stay at Cherry Hill and buy the SmarTrip card. BTW, it's much cheaper to take the Metro. Cheapest all day parking I found was $16

RE: Ready Brute towing

Been using the Ready Brake with a sterling all terrain tow bar for about 7 years. Very easy to set up and works well. On vacation this month, I somehow managed to bend the Ready brake tube in the receiver. Called them and then sent pictures. They weren't sure what caused the bend, but it's covered under a lifetime warranty. Shipped it back to them and they replaced all the bad parts. Should have it back today.

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?
