RE: No more Nevercold! Ice and water in door, four hours

You guys are really worrying me with all the negative comments about LG refers! I can still purchase the extended warranty, I think I will. As to the questions, the left door does not open far enough to be able to remove the ice bin. When we go home to my shop, I will probably remove it again and lower the pedestal to allow the door room to swing under the pocket door track. This Bus has a good size battery pack and an inverter but we rarely dry camp so it's not too important. For example we are staying here in Mesa Az for six months. Meanwhile, the beer is really cold and the ice cream rock hard! Bob

No more Nevercold! Ice and water in door, four hours

and $863 +tip to delivery guys. Our Norcold struggles are over! YEA! We have been fighting a long battle with that piece of sh*&t for too long, inadequate cooling, broken door hinge, leaking water etc. It didn't give up without a fight however, it leaked ammonia Sat night and polluted my coach just to really annoy us one more time. Thanks to the Tiffin forum the procedure for replacement was well documented. We just had to find the perfect 'fridge to replace it. There was the right Samsung at Home Depot but it was back ordered and we would have needed to wait until the end of January. We found a sale on at Fry's Electronics and bought the LG refer #LSC23924. It is the right size, has water and ice in the door and was $863 including tax, delivery and pick up of said Norcold. Plus, they delivered it in two hours! I had to rush home to remove the window behind driver, the old unit, clean up the hole and be ready. I just made it in time and the guys were very helpful, Here are some photos.....

Top of the Grapevine, lost all air pressure!

The "Grapevine" is the mountain pass on the "5" descending into Los Angeles, the summit a little over 4,000 ft. On Sunday, around noon, I was just beginning the decent and felt the ride getting stiffer, like when you leave a campground before the air pressure has built all the way. I checked the pressure gauge and it was falling quickly! Luck was on my side as there was no one in the right lane. I pulled over but by now the Bus('06) had fallen on to the bump stops and it was bouncing us out of our seats. Again thanking my lucky stars, there was an off ramp in sight but by now my low pressure alarm was blasting and we were feeling some panic, just waiting for the brakes to lock up. We did get off the freeway and, lucky again, got to a parking lot and shut it off. I dropped the jacks and proceeded to look for the cause. After starting it up I was able to find the leak, it was the air dryer, a cylinder about ten inches around and over a foot in length. It is located at the rear just under the front of the motor. Meanwhile DW was on the internet and had found the Freightliner hot line. It is manned around the clock every day of the year, and, a real person who speaks English answered. He helped me through the diagnosis and suggested the fix. I took off the two air lines, air in and air out and connected them together, bypassing the dryer and it's leaking pressure relief valve. Problem solved! I drove it into our winter spot here in Mesa with no other difficulties. The air pressure was a little higher, around 145, but was assured there would be no problems. It is time to buy the rebuild kit and get my next lesson on maintenance! Bob

Wireless, remote speakers with Dish Hopper?

We take our Hopper with us for our winter stay in Mesa Az and would love to have music outside. Same thing at home, we need music on the patio. In the Bus we have a Blue ray player that runs the surround sound. At home the player is made by Sony. Neither, to my knowledge has provision for wireless remote speakers. What would be the best solution?(least trouble, best sound, cheapest) I did speak with Dish technical support and was told the Hopper will not do what I want, Thanks in advance, Bob

RE: Flat Towing small vehicle

Just be real careful with the resulting low ground clearance! My friends had a six inch drop that would sometimes rub the ground when negotiating low driveways. They never worried until the ball mount broke and their tow broke loose! What a disaster. Bob

Drain hose racks, a good thing?

It seems to me that blocking the drain hose so that it is in a perfectly straight line may not be a good idea. I'm sure that it may drain more efficiently, but, you are loosing the natural trap formed by laying the hose on the ground as it needs to go back up at the fitting on the end of the hose. What am I missing here? Bob
