RE: 1993 Holiday Rambler Aluma-lite Owners Manual needed

Son of Norway has the best suggestions. My 03 Monaco has a manual but not that good. I also have all individual appliance manual that I keep on my laptop and the cloud so they are always available. The manual for the Monaco is not worth much but I keep it for a listing of capacities and weights.

RE: Replacement thermostat

...My solution in the motorhome is to grab the hair dryer out of the bathroom and warm the thermostat enough for the furnace to come on. Never thought about the hair dryer. Always used the electric heater. thanks for the suggestions.

RE: Lake Superior Grand Circle Tour

PM me with an email and I'll send you the spreadsheet we used in 08. Did 54 waterfalls in 17 days CW from I-75 around the lake. It lists the falls, campgrounds, and some of the other sights.

RE: Replacement thermostat

I replaced a Dometic tstat with a Honeywell and it has worked well except one problem. Even the Honeywell service center could not figure this one out. When leaving to go south in December I went to turn the furnace on with the MH in the driveway and the thermostat would only show LO. I needed to direct my electric heater on the thermostat until it got up above 35 degrees and then it would work. Found out the indication was that the temp was too low for the tstat to work. I knew it was cold but did not know the Honeywell home thermostat would not work in very cold temps. Once I started the heating process the furnace would kick on and then all was well. The installation process was very straight forward and should only take minimum time for the average DIY person.

RE: Discount Travel Cards

Don't know which you are referring but it may depend on what activities you enjoy. We always now get the annual pass when going to some FLA state parks. If the annual is only $20 and a daily is $10 then it is a no-brainer if going more than once. Everyone will be different depending on use.

RE: Hensley/Propride owners -- Leaving trailer for maintenance?

I did not take the Hensley off when in for service. They moved it but had a problem. When setting it down they bent the power jack and needed to replace it. Other than that it was not a problem. I always asked before just leaving it.

RE: Water pump

the check valve at the pump is leaking and pressure in the system is pushing water back into the fresh water tank. Might be able to clean it out or even replace it.

RE: New RV Park North of Detroit

Don't pay that much per month for a good snowbird site near Daytona or Orlando Jan to March.

RE: Running generator and a/c while driving

Turn off AC then the gen 5 minutes before stopping for fuel. Fuel Leave the pump and start the gen. Turn the AC on in a few miles. Don't need to stop to do the gen as controls are on the dash and it runs on diesel.

RE: Phoenix trip

I did take Usery pass and north bush hwy and then AZ87 to get to Payson from Phoenix. These were great roads in better condition than most of the other roads on the way to Michigan.

RE: Phoenix trip

Thanks for the info. We are leaving Apache Junction and finally heading home so this is what we will do to get up to I-40 and then MI. Was trying to avoid the multiple switchbacks if at all possible.

Phoenix trip

How is usery pass and north bush hwy and then AZ87 to get to Payson from Phoenix instead of just using 87? We have a 37 ‘ Motorhome with toad.

RE: Florida to Arizona best route?

I've taken I-10 on that trip two years ago and will never again do that. We are currently in Gulfport, MS and had a great trip over I-10 from Orange City, FL. Roads to this point have been very good. No construction. This morning we will be taking US-49 N to Jackson, MS and then I-20 West to meet up with I-10 near Van Horn, TX. I have not taken it yet but have heard the road is better than I-10 and I know I-10 has construction in LA and west TX. Good luck on the choice and if I remember I'll post results in a few days.

RE: Dim LED's

Could have been a connection problem at the fuse holder. That was the only contacts touched so you must be right.

RE: Dim LED's

I went and pulled, again, every fuse, checked and put them back in. None were bad. Tried the switch just because, and all the lights worked very well. Just like they should. Glad it is all working but I still don't know what the problem was or is. Thanks for the suggestions. This is on a Monaco A DP.

RE: entrance door hold open latch?

Many of us have problems with the scissor closer on the top of the door. Mine will open and then stay open and not allow a slight pull get is closed. Need to start it by hand and am too cheap to put new unit on top. There is an indent in the scissor unit that should hold it but often times does not.

RE: Dim LED's

I'm going to try the old bulbs and see if they work. I agree it might be a feedback issue as the roads on I-10 have not been nice. I'll try the other suggestions after church and dinner tonight. On the road tomorrow so I'll have time each night until it is fixed. Thanks and I'll update as I go.
