RE: Generator

OK, thanks for all the info. Yes, it was set for high altitude, don't know how that was, but moved it back to about 2000 feet. No change Cleaned the fins real good. No change. It starts right up cold, runs great for about 20 minutes then quits, won't start again till it cools down. then runs about 15 minutes quits again. Still looking for the fuel pump, according to the booklet it's electric, when you prime you can hear it running. Tried to get an RV place yesterday to check it out. He informed me he doesn't do any thing to them except change the oil and didn't know any place close by that works on them. I sure hate to drive all the way to Dallas but if all else fails maybe I will. Thanks again.

RE: What has happened to Winnebago Quality?

Yes, I too feel Winnebago sure has lost the quality along the way. My first coach was a 1995 Itasca Suncruiser no slides. Bought it used in 1997. It was a great MH, no rattles, very little money did I put into it. No major problems the entire time I Had it. Traded it for a brand new Winnebago in 2006. This coach has given us all types of trouble, Spark plug wires kept burning off, slides quit working, leak up on right hand corner, dash air needed repair, basement air just got repaired, had to repair shower leak, refrigerator had to be repaired, repaired drawer guide, Onan generator needs repaired. That's all I can think of right now. But only twice have we been on a trip that some thing didn't go wrong.

Just had my basement AC repaired, started the Generator to make sure the AC was working OK. The AC was doing it's job. The Generator ran about and hour & half then just quit. have a full tank of gasoline, oil is full. The AC man who has a Motor Home said the Generator was too hot and shut down. The temperature outside is 99 degrees. I waited about 30 minutes and the Generator started right up. ran about 20 minutes and stopped again. It runs good under load before it stops. Any one got any Ideas?? It has always ran good before in very hot weather when Boon docking. It's an Onan 5500. at least that's what is says on the outside panel. Thanks for your suggestions

RE: I'll live with my kids.

I love it. I have a daughter that her father-in-law lives with them. He has Dementia, has no short term memory, but things he did way back to WW2 he tells some pretty good stories.

Hang in there, you are getting old. I'm only 81 for a few more months yet. Still going pretty darn good. But I do notice those steps getting into the MH are a little harder to get up. Happy Birthday

RE: Why do we need such a big windshield???

If the window shield was not real big they would have no way to get the refrigerator in and out.This is probably the correct answer -- along with using a standard windshield for good parts availability and ease of replacement. A big windshield is not needed to R&R a refer. A side window can be removed much easier which is what my installer did. You do have to remove the doors but they will fit through a window By golly I don't think mine will fit through a side window. But I sure am going to measure.

RE: Who treats their diesel fuel?

My son-in-law just bought a new Motor Home diesel pusher and he has to add Diesel Exhaust Fluid, Or DEF for short. It goes in a separate tank, seems like that would be a lot of trouble. He says it won't run with out it.

RE: Used GSRA twice on same trip, different results

Being an ole man, over the years the word service doesn't mean much. It just seems like the younger generation don't care much if they help you or not. It's not only road side assistance but even in the stores, same way. I remember back when you drove in to a Service station, they sold gas, checked the oil, water, and cleaned the windshield. Even air in your tires if you asked.

Stains on roof of MH

I have quite a few stains on the roof of the coach (white top) from bird droppings and leaves. What is a good way to get them off. The coach has not had the roof washed in a couple of years due to the water restrictions here where I live. I have tried different soaps, cleansers. Got any good ideas? Thanks

RE: Maybe you can explain it !

That's an easy one....a tide in the hand would look like laundry detergent. Jim You beat me to it. I guess great minds work alike.

Refrigerator (New Brand)

Just received my copy of the Camping World catalog. They have a (Americana refrigerator) seems really cheap starting at $1176.99. I for one never heard of that brand. Any one know any thing about them??

RE: Norcold refrigerator does too warm

Sorry to hear of your problems. I have had problem with our Norcold for a couple of years now. Have spent a lot of money to repairmen who said they could fix it. Ours stays close to 40 when the inside of the coach is above 70 degrees. The freezer compartment stays below 32 all the time (Electric or Propane)At night as the weather cools down, both compartments work great. Had fans replaced, new seals placed on doors. So far nothing helps. Sure would be interested on if you get yours fixed just what repair did it.

RE: Spare tire

What size tire? When I had a coach with 19.5 tires I carried a spare in a compartment. Now that I have a different coach with 22.5 tires I have no place to carry a spare even not mounted.

That's sure great to hear, as I still have another year to go on my Good Sam Roadside assistance.

RE: GS Roadside Assist without camper

Currently have GS Roadside Assist and happy with it. Foresee in the future not having any camper. Can we still use GS Roadside covering only our cars? Some years back I used it for my car, and I had great service. It only took about 30 minutes and the wrecker was there and took it to the Buick garage. But just last year I had to have a tow for my Toad and it was a night mare. I think the road service has really changed.

RE: A rare sighting

Yes, it sure does work for out going calls. They told me if I switched to AT&T internet it would not work for out going calls.

RE: A rare sighting

I know this is silly, but we still have a dial phone in the kitchen. The phone company put it in, in 1970. I was paying rent on it till one day I called the phone company and they informed me I could buy it for $9.95. So I did and still have it. It's doesn't work real good when they tell you to press 1 for English. The grand kids are really fascinated by it.

Walking on the Grass

WALKING ON THE GRASS . The room full of pregnant women with their husbands . The instructor said, "Ladies, remember that exercise is good for you. Walking is especially beneficial. It strengthens the pelvic muscles and will make delivery that much easier. Just pace yourself, make plenty of stops and try to stay on a soft surface like grass." "Gentlemen, remember - you're in this together. It wouldn't hurt you to go walking with her. In fact, that shared experience would be good for you both." The room suddenly became very quiet as the men absorbed this information. After a few moments a man, name unknown, at the back of the room, slowly raised his hand. "Yes?" said the Instructor. "I was just wondering if it would be all right if she carries a golf bag while we walk?" This kind of sensitivity just can't be taught........
