RE: 2002 Monaco Diesel heat and monitor panel

Inside on the main switch panel you may find some switch labeled 'System Heat' with a light next to it. When you turn on the switch it will glow red. If the temp is low enough outside then the power will go to the heater and the light next to the switch will glow. This tells you the heater is getting power. There is a snap switch between the inside one and the heater that will not turn on unless it is cold enough and will turn off to stop the heater if the bay is warm enough. In your manual look for 'System heat'. It is only 40 where we are and it never came on last night. In Michigan it would come on but only raise the temp in the bay about 20 degrees.

RE: Slide cover for snowy weather

We are leaving MI and it is well below freezing. I like to have the topper thawed before trying to extend the slides. If it is frozen I worry about the slide pulling the topper attachment at the roof away from the roof. Might not be a problem if not frozen but it can be if solid.

RE: 2004 Southwind Black Tank Flush doesn't work

Had the back flush blocked on the new-to-me Monaco and it was plugged in the nozzles in the black tank. Took it off and drilled out slightly larger holes after cleaning all crud off the unit. Sprays very well now and not a problem. One less to worry about.

RE: Recommend mechanic/ engine shop

Use RV Service Reviews and you can find a service unit that has reviews. In Fountain Hills there is one good one for Gas units.

RE: K&M Resorts

We have, in the past, tried the two or three nights free. I always go prepared with the statement"We never decide on the spot and will need a couple days to think about it. If the offer is not still available then, then I guess we just lose out." That has helped us but they do not like it. All the places we ever went had very hard sell and the offer got better the longer we held out. Good luck and we have no history with K&M so can't comment on them.

RE: Snow birding in FLA

RVPark Reviews is the place to start researching any park you want to go to. There are 52 listed for that city. A lot to choose from.

RE: New Driver

Take your turns wide, give more room to stop, and check heights. We took our 36' with toad MI to AZ and back without alot of prior driving. As you go you will find that each day is a learning experience. Use the freeways at a slower speed and you will gain confidence quickly.

RE: Holidays finally over with, now for the important stuff !

I'm giving those peeps in Florida 12 days to get it warmed up. Then we're leaving MI and heading there.

RE: What do I do??

Check it over real good. Small radiator crack and rotted CAC was only 10k on my 03 Neptune with only 58K miles, a 300HP Cummins and real good condition. Just saying, have someone check it over real good before getting near your limit. An oil change is $300 alone. Tires when due are going to be around $2,400. These toys are not cheap.

RE: Jacks froze on wood blocks

If a wood block stays with the jack and the springs still retract it then must tap the wood with a hammer. A sideways hit should knock it loose. It would be the same if it had frozen to the cement driveway. Mine do the same sometimes on the drive next to the S&B.

RE: Hensley Hitch Set up

"Complicated" is in the mind of the beholder! You probably did it right. If it tows right and feel right, it's right! You did a good job. Don't over think it, just do it and you'll be fine! Getting used to hit the stinger is the biggest headache with the HA. I found you need to grease the tapered end and it will not stick and give a problem getting it apart. I used it with 1400# bars on a 1500 Ram, Hemi, 2004 and Jayco Eagle 322FKS of 8,000 lb loaded. Pulled great. I have a friend who thinks the hitch hates him. I would never let a mechanical object get the best of me. I mastered it and found hitting the stinger was a simple project after several outings. Great hitch, enjoy the safety it gives you.

RE: How do you secure a wall clock?

Mine is hung just by a screw in the slot. It has never fallen off. x2 And has worked in TT and the MH. Both times it was in the center of the unit and not near the back end where bouncing is more pronounced.

RE: Are we having an early snowbird season?

Timing of the snow will also delay or speed up the migration. We have a late date of 1/27/18 but think it might move up to 1/14.
