RE: Mobile Suite purchase price help needed

What does "retail" mean? I would think that "retail" would be at a dealership. Shouldn't "private party" be less than retail? If so...how much below retail can I negotiate toward, as a general rule? I'll bet that the other posters thought you were talking about a rig on a dealers lot. Dealers prices are typically always negotiable. YOur private party seller's price is already below what a dealer would list it for. No one knows what your seller will accept but him/herself. There is no typical discount with a private seller. Check around until you know what a good price is for the unit and do your best negotiating. Good luck.

RE: Generator Starts Up On It's Own

I've read this on the forums I visit a few times in the last year. Seem to recall there was some type of circuit board that got wet and/or went bad. Maybe you could find the other threads with a search. Edit: google just brought up a bunch of posts about it.

RE: Source for door latches, drawer guides, etc., etc.

I don't believe Prime-Line sells to the public. But the popular hardware stores probably carry their stuff.

RE: Don't idle your loud diesel at 5am for so long!!

We idle our diesels because we are Men. And Men love the sound of a powerful engine!

RE: Tire pressure when traveling

As soon as nitrogen was mentioned, I knew the thread would take this nasty turn.

RE: CareFree Electric Awning / Front support not all the way in

You do not want them to tight other wise they get rolled under the Alumiguard. Glenn, I'm not sure what you mean by 'too tight'? Maybe you are talking about where the instructions say to leave 1/4 inch clearance?

RE: Fridge power consumption and operation

Here is another simple diagram. This assumes an ATS is built into the Inverter. http://mrwebman.com/120volt_wiring_example_overview.gif

RE: Fridge power consumption and operation

As stated, that is a pretty complicated solution that already has some simpler methods to accomplish what you want to do. You want to research using a 'sub panel' with your inverter and an ATS (automatic transfer switch). Here is one example document I quickly googled about it. BlueSea Inverter Sub Panel And no worries about leaving the fridge on 'auto' and let it switch to propane as it does not pull a battery down quickly.

RE: CareFree Electric Awning / Front support not all the way in

Well, based on that diagram my Tractioners are way off from the factory.

RE: oil change

Is there only one place in St George, UT? What kind of RV do you have?

RE: CareFree Electric Awning / Front support not all the way in

One is that it seems to roll in and out jerky, does not roll in/out smoothly. The roller itself seems to rotate smoothly it is the supports that seem to hold up the deployment of the awning. I did spray the tracks with silicone but that seemed to make no differe Glenn, I just went through this part of the issue. Check the End Caps on the roller. There should be 2 screws in each one. And watch the motor as it is operating. Does it wobble back and forth? One screw came out of each end of mine, leaving only one screw on the end cap. That let the motor wobble back and forth as it was operating. That made the arms real jerky as it operated. Lubing the tracks had no effect. Once I identified the issue and got new screws, the motor still wobbles slightly. So I think the motor drive is bent. I believe the screws was a #10 self tapping.

RE: Repair Shop Wait Times. What was the longest wait?

I think it matters if an appointment was made or if you just dropped the coach off for service, unannounced. Many will not make appointments. You have to bring it in and have it sit there idle until they get time to even look at it.

RE: Toll booth and Axis

I never noticed before I got the Class A, but then found that there is a second ticket dispenser higher up. Somehow the toll booth knows which one to spit out the ticket to. The big trucks also use the higher ticket output.

RE: GPS stand/mount question

One thing that is important to us is being able to use the GPS in both the MH and the Toad. So select your mounting method to consider this also. In our case, the GPS helps us to get to where we are going, then is vital in the Toad to help us find the MH again after a day exploring in the Toad. The first time we got lost and couldn't find our way back to the campground is when I bought our first GPS! So true. I have the same mounts in the motorhome and tow car so I can just move it to the car when we leave the campground for the day.

RE: cell tower construction

Believe me it's a cell tower, since cell antenna are vertical bars, they are not constructed the same way as "wire"/rod antennas The frequencies used are in the lower end of the microwave spectrum And MW antenna are some times called horns, depending on the application Must people think a television Sat dish is a MW antenna It's not..The antenna is tiny, it's in the end of the horn sticking out from the dish...The dish is just a reflector to catch signal and focus it on the end of the horn..where the antenna is hidden Thanks for that explanation. I worked in the wireless business for about 16 years as a network manager charged with development and implementation of the fixed and switched wireless network. I just never heard anyone in the business refer to the antennas as 'horns' or 'elements' in that time. It has been a while though.

RE: cell tower construction

What are these 'horns/elements' ? Doesn't sound like cell tower antenna.

RE: cell tower construction

To try to tell if it is a Verizon tower, when the antennas go up check to see the directions the 3 sectors point to. If it is North, Southeast and Southwest, then there is a chance it could be Verizon. If the antennas point Northeast, South and Northwest, it is not Verizon. If you see some guys working stop and ask them. As stated, construction time can vary, but it could be operational within a couple to three weeks if all goes well for them.
