RE: How young were you when you bought your first DP?

Bought the DP @ 64 after selling our 98 Safari Trek gasser. Still using it and as we speak the DW and I are sitting here in Yellowstone. What a great lifestyle RVing has been for me,I purchased my first MH in 1972 (a class C cab over on Dodge chassis).

RE: A Propane Use Question

We put ours on electric mode during the day and night and the gas when we shower or need extra hot water.

RE: which eternabond?

I had a repair done after a hail storm. The repair shop used a aluminum tape over where I had installed Eternabond along one side of the roof and it failed in the 2nd year and started leaking along that seam. I had to remove the tape and reseal w/ Eternabond to stop the leak!!!

RE: Water Heater won't restart !

snomass, As it is so often mentioned here, it would behoove you to get a DMM(digital multi-meter) and learn how to use it. They are very simple to operate and they do so many things to help you save time. I have two or three brand new meters in the garage that I got free from Harbor Freight. There are a multitude of appliance manuals available on line with trouble shooting sections. Most troubleshooting manuals have schematics and exploded views so identification of the various parts is simple. That said, I have nothing against asking for help here as some solutions are so simple and common that many of us carry a spare part or two for those failures. Occasionally you get an answer which seems very simple but doesn't make any sense. By adjusting the thermocouple I believe the intent was to say "is the thermocouple located in the correct location in the pilot flame". A good idea but a little fuzzy if you haven't heard about that in the past, besides there aren't many adjustable thermocouples. So post your question, download the manual and use the new meter that hopefully you picked up for free at Harbor Freight to trouble shoot the problem following the manual. After all that, if you don't have the solution, I'll be surprised. Eagle Rock, I assume you are from the Eagle Rock area. I trust your wisdom, since I married a girl from Eagle Rock High School. I grew up in Highland Park. I will try the meter from Harbor Freight. Thanks for the info.

Water Heater won't restart !

Our hot water heater won't re-light when it cools down. It fires up at 1st and runs until the water is hot, but doesn't always re-light to keep the water hot. Does anyone have any ideas what could be wrong?

RE: How do they jack up big coach when replacing tires?

On mine they used air/hydraulic bottle jack. Bought the Mich's from a local semi-truck repair facility in Denver. 6-Michs cost 3700 OTD. Next set I will ck prices on Hankook's and Toyo's!!!!

RE: Tire Pressure Gauge and Chuck

You can get inner dully valve extenders at any Truck stop. I just bought one from TA, because my older braided extender started leaking.

RE: Oh - nooo. Not the engine repair you want to hear so soon

I can feel your pain. In the last 18 mo's we have had some several maintenance issues that were in the tune of about $17,000. It included engine issues and several road break downs and some preventative maintenance things we had done. We have about 88K miles on the 02 Dutch Star. The way I look at it if we had a second home someplace it would cost that much or more for upkeep in the last 12 years. We still don't want to give up the flexibility of RV'ing!!! Good Luck in the future!

RE: Will RG6 cable carry the HDTV signal to my new TV?

Note my receiver is a Direct TV H24-700. Does anyone know what HDTV Direct TV model receiver has the "out" to TV w/a RG6 coax connection in lieu of the HDMI connector. Or are you guys saying that I have to rewire my MH to a new switching box in order to operate my 2 TV's in Hi Def.

Will RG6 cable carry the HDTV signal to my new TV?

I'm going to install a new Winegard Traveler dish on the motorhome. My question is that there are existing RG6 cables that are prewired from a switching box in one cabinet to another cabinet where the HDTV receiver will be located. Can the RG6 cables carry the HDTV signal from the new HDTV receiver back to the switching box so the 2 TV's will operate in Hi def? The receiver only has a HDMI connection on the "out" to TV side of the receiver. The "IN" from the Traveler dish is an RG6 connection.

RE: Question on Winegard Traveler Cable Installation

Do you install this plate over the 1 inch hole and then clamp down the wires running on top of the roof to the dish? I have about a 4' run from the dish to the hole that goes into the cabinet.

Question on Winegard Traveler Cable Installation

I am going to install the Winegard Traveler and can someone tell me how they installed the power control cable thru the roof. My receiver and existing coax cables are located in an overhead outside wall cabinet about 4' from the traveler. I think it would be easy to drill a 1" hole thru the roof above the cabinet for the control cable to enter. Do they make any special 1" hole covers or roof mount cable run covers? Any ideas would be helpfull.

RE: Will Winegard Traveler work w/ existing cables?

I have read a few posts about people replacing their in motion sat with a Winegard Traveler. Curious why they're doing it. The 2002 KVH dish stopped connecting to the satellite in Jan 2013. KVH said I needed to upgrade to a newer unit!!

RE: Will Winegard Traveler work w/ existing cables?

Thanks for all the info guys. Now I have to figure out how to get the control box cable run down thru the roof to the power outlet in my overhead cabinet where all the existing wiring for my receiver hook is located.

RE: Will Winegard Traveler work w/ existing cables?

I have a roof mounted KVH in motion sat dish and want to replace it w/ a new Winegard Traveler. MY question is will the existing prewired KVH cables/wires (and inside switch box Newmar installed) work on the traveler without adding any new ones? Do you have DISH or DirecTV? I have DirectTV and presently use my home SD receiver. I will be using my H24-700 HDTV receiver when I install the traveler!

RE: Replacing slide awning fabric. Need options.

I went to a local awning/tent maker shop and took my originals and they duplicated them and I re-installed. 2 slides cost about $275.

RE: What did you do to your Class A MH today???

Just got hit by hail storm Tuesday night and now waiting for the insurance adjuster to review the damage. So far I have the following damage: 2 A/C covers, Refer cover, plumb vent covers. both 40ft long alum edge caps, high tail lite, side running lite and some paint chip on drivers side. I bought the roof covers today and will install tomorrow so we can at least take our August trip to Yellowstone and when I come back it will go to the body shop!!

RE: A used Newell, what do you think?

Just remember you will have maintenance costs for any older coach. This past year I have spent close to 17K on maintenance problems on our Dutch Star. It started with a leaking exhaust manifold and went downhill from there. I just had all new heater hoses replaced because one broke on the Interstate on the way home from CA last spring! Have all the running gear checked by a good mechanic before purchasing any older MH. It is money well spent!
