RE: Change coolant from the green to the extended...

Thanks again for all the help! I have ordered (2) gallons of concentrate from O'Reilly's and the rest in 50/50 from Pepboys (Pepboys has a great sale for 25% off internet sales) and I can pick them both up after work. Now to get the water filter with no additive and a new thermostat and new radiator hoses. I'll keep you posted! Don't forget the heater hoses especially the long front to back hoses if you have a DP, I just had mine replaced after a breakdown for a broken heater hose on I-10 near YUMA,AZ!

RE: LP gas leak detector sounding alert.

From some of your previous posts you have a 2000 Fleetwood Southwind. That means your LP Detector is over 14 yrs. old.....they have a shelf life of 5-7 yrs. Typically an expiration date is printed on backside of detector. Get and install a new one. Low battery voltage is the other most common reason that chip. X2

RE: Taking Apart Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar

I had to use pipe wrenches to take it apart, it's not easy and it did score the nuts but nothing else would work. The score marks are OK since I would rather have a rebuilt tow bar in lieu of not rebuilding it. Mine is 10 yrs old w/60K mi of towing!

RE: Prepping RV roof for caulking

If you have a white roof just clean the area with acetone get some 4' wide Eternabond and it will be the last time you have to do it. X2 on Using Eternabond!!

RE: Why do TPMS systems fail?

67Cutlass: What is a repeater and what does it do? I might consider the TST system since a lot op people have good luck w/them.

RE: Full-Timing...what's your opinion...

We feel the same as you. we like to have stick and brick home to go back too. We use the MH about 3-4 months a year and that is enough for us. My golf buddies and club activities, grandchildren nearby etc. are important to us.

RE: Car towing question..

I have set up two different cars for towing. Both of them had to have some small cut outs in the front grill/fascia to allow the tow bkts to be exposed for connecting too.

RE: fighting the steering

I had steering problems w/ my 31' Safari gasser on P30 chassis. I installed the safety steer device from Camping world. It helped a little. I was driving south down I25 south of Raton NM and a side gust hit me and I was moved from the right lane over to the left shoulder in about 2 seconds. Needless to say I now own a Diesel MH! Good luck w/your fix!

RE: Tire Age Question For My Neighbor

My rule is 6 yrs max. I've seen what damage a blow out can cause. One went up into the passenger seat area. The choice is his.

RE: Working on something ALL THE TIME

We are on our first long post-retirement trip...4 months. I am always tweaking, fixing, checking, modifying the coach. I sometimes think I over maintain it. I've had to fix a few minor issues on this trip and have started a list of things to fix, improve or modify when we get home. For me maintaining the RV is the hobby within the hobby. I truly believe that if you aren't handy with tools and like fixing things, you'd best not buy any RV, unless you have so much money you don't mind paying someone else to fix everything. AMEN!!

RE: Working on something ALL THE TIME

Last year we had 2 breakdowns on the Interstate. This will not deter us from RVing and it is true you have to have a lot of money to keep an RV in top shape, but so would a second home and we prefer the more mobile life style while we still are able.

RE: Why do TPMS systems fail?

My TPMS is Tire Tracker. I sent it back for credit. I don't think I will use one again. I had one tire go flat while in storage because of the sensor. I've never had any tire problems in 12 yrs. before I tried a TPMS.

RE: Roadmaster Tow Bar 10 Years Or 70,000 Miles

My Falcon tow bar is 10 yrs old w/60K miles on it and I rebuilt it myself 2 yrs ago. Does this mean I need to replace it?

RE: Head lights

Go to the owners section on iRV2 forums and you might find a blog that gives you the headlight #'s. That's how I found mine.

RE: toads

I don't tow a Jeep. They have never fit my requirements for size, comfort, and ride! I have towed a Honda Odyssey and I think the Honda CRV is an excellent choice! I personally like my present Ford Explorer which I also use year around when not RV'ing.

RE: Why do TPMS systems fail?

I did all of the above. I installed new batteries. I re-programed the sensors. I made a 1000 mile trip and the 10 sensors read Ok going 1st 500 mi, but on the return (5 days later) only one sensor read and the other 9 tires would not read.
