RE: Water lines

Assuming that you have the fill valve in the correct position - the check valve at the water pump is allowing reverse flow. Simply using the water pump briefly may remove the object blocking the check valve from sealing.

RE: Pilot Flying-j plus charge card discount in WI

Because the first response that I received from the Marcus response team was totally unresponsive and then quickly removed my later replies have been taken out of context. You may now close this thread. I saw the original GS response, it was simply a cut and paste from the website.

RE: using BAL levelers

I missed the fact that the BAL 28050 was an actual leveling device, I assumed it was a scissor jack since the part number seemed so familiar to me. Yep, this is what we are talking about. http://www.rvpartscenter.com/Image/18058.jpg Very popular among popup and other small single axle trailer owners.

RE: Water Hose Storage

I toss it in the compartment with hoses, leveling blocks, tools and everything else used outside the RV. I coil it and connect the ends to keep out bugs/dirt.

RE: Name of this part?

...it has no function other than looks.... Not true, it is required by law. Some RVs use a tank cover which also covers the regulator. If that isn't the case then the regulator is required to have its own cover. jjjandrbaker, the cover is specific to your brand and model of regulator, make sure you get the right one.

RE: Stuck on I81 in VA with no help from my Allstate Motor Club

...I contacted Allstate Motor Club and told them to cancel my membership....I immediately joined the Good Sam Road Service Plan. Guess what, you still have Allstate who subcontracts for Good Sam through 2019. :B Read here.

RE: Was I Wrong? (Long Story)

I believe you are younger than many of us on here and also relatively new at RVing. For some reason you appear to have the need to prove yourself in the right and get the endorsement of others on the forum. Here is what I would have done based on years of life experience. Ignore the fool. I don't carry on loud conversations after dark from long distances. I would not have replied in the first place. If the fool chose to escalate the situation and approach me things would have changed. At that point he would be an aggressor and I would respond appropriately. If he became threatening my response would probably be to his detriment. You escalated the situation by responding and arguing. In the right or not, you escalated the situation. I know, you're young. You should have ignored him and let him think what he wants. It is not your job to educate the fools of this world and you will find it an impossible task anyhow. ...if I just walked away then I would have just been pissed at myself for bowing down to the jerk. I pick and choose my battles and this was one I selected. Then you need to grow up.

RE: Terminology Question

Nothing. It is only what the owner named it. Just like a restaurant, cafe, diner, no real difference, just a name.

RE: using BAL levelers

I love using my Bal leveler with the Aliner, best thing since sliced bread. Some have used them with tandem axles but it might become more effort than it is worth. You might want to look into the Anderson levelers.

RE: Flying J Ripoff

As one of the "benefits" of membership, I obtained a Flying J card...Furthermore, they told me the card would be discontinued in December.... I am really curious about this "discontinued in December" comment. Exactly what will be discontinued in December?

RE: Finding fresh water.

We had a discussion about carrying water at our campfire Saturday night. All of us that have traveled full and empty reported never having seen a difference in fuel mileage. My TH TT carries 100 gallons of fresh water and my mileage is consistent empty or full.

RE: Can someone tell me how to read this correctly

Charging Good Fair Low You would be a lot further ahead using a digital voltage meter rather than those idiot light.

RE: Is there a better tank monitor panel/display

If the only issue is being able to glance at the readout without pushing the button - place a jumper wire across the momentary switch or replace it with a SPST toggle.

RE: Open Tanks with no worries

Not knowing what your invention is but I have to assume it involves regularly flushing the tanks with copious amounts of water. Seems mighty wasteful to me in order to avoid one having to pull a valve handle occasionally. Just think what could be done with those five minutes saved every week! Maybe those extra minutes could be used to solve the world's clean water shortage!

RE: Coleman Mach 3 A/C

Most common reason for icing is reduced air flow. The reduced air flow can be from a dirty air filter or running the fan on low in a humid environment.

RE: Fridge cooling fan mod

More important than those fans is to bend some sheet metal to force all air flow through the condenser coils rather than around them and also eliminate the dead air space. Make sure to send a thank you letter to your RV manufacturer for screwing their customers with a lousy design and poor installation.

RE: Di-electric spray

Can di-electric spray be sprayed directly to the 7 pin cord on tt? I sprayed it on and several days later, as we hooked up to leave the CG, the tv trailer app said the tt was disconnected. After several minutes, it changed to connected trailer. Am I using this correctly? Like said, di-electric grease/spray is non-conductive. I use DeoxIT D5 by Caig; http://store.caig.com/s.nl/it.A/id.1602/.f

RE: Pigeon Forge, Tn

The national park is great but if you've never been there let me warn you about traffic. Even though the distance between Pigeon Forge and the Elkmont campground in GSMNP isn't very far, it may take two hours when traffic is heavy. I would suggest something in the Townsend area.

RE: lifetime warrenty?

I doubt it is legal for the dealer to require that they perform all maintenance. It is probably sufficient for you simply to have proof of all the maintenance having been done. On the other hand that gives the dealer a way out by claiming the work wasn't done or wasn't done correctly.

RE: Hot exhausting air from Gen being sucked in by cool inlet

My Onan 3600LP draws air through the ventilated compartment door and blows the heat out the floor. Your rig seems like a poor installation.
