RE: Dash Radio's Motor Homes

"quote" ( I can't guaranty this will remedy your situation and, I need to know what model of radio you have. If it's a Magnadyne, it may have a reset pin on it. Ours does. The reset button/pin is in between the two rotational dials, on the left side. It's slightly to the right of both of them. Ours did exactly what yours is doing, only about 5 years ago. I pushed that reset button/pin and, it came back to life and, has been working great ever since. Our coach is an '04 Itasca Horizon, 36GD with the C-7 330HP CAT.) Scott Hey, my reset button is not in the same place as yours. but I did punch it and the radio worked twice then quit again. I will play with it some more and see if it makes any difference. Thanks for the info.

RE: Dash Radio's Motor Homes

Some of the automobiles that I restored still had working tube type radios. With today's electronics I would think that vehicle radios should last forever. I know that the current TV's are much more reliable than those a few decades ago. I am guessing that most of the failure comes from mechanical issues caused by the constant earthquake environment that our motor homes endure. Components that are shaken loose/damaged are the main causes of failures. I don't think the same quality exists in aftermarket radios that are used in most RV's. I sure go along with you on the (earth quake environment), Last month I was on a highway that just about shook the coach to prices. But there seems to be so much more traffic than just a few years ago. Thank y'all for your input.

RE: Woman and Tattoos

After being in the Military for over 20 years, I'm sure glad I never got a tattoo. I see many men now in their 70's & 80's sure wish they had never got a tattoo. Their skin is sagging and you can't even make out what the tattoo is suppose to be. I wonder what the women that have tattoo's are going to look like when they reach their 70's & 80's. Besides, with the perfect body I have I sure don't want any thing to destroy it's good looks.

Dash Radio's Motor Homes

Has any one else had their dash radio go bad?? Maybe it's just me. My first coach after about 5 years old the dash radio just quit completely. Tried a couple of radio shops, both told me they were not worth fixing,so I replaced it. Now in this coach, (bought it new)which is a Winnebago Adventurer 06 the off & on button has quit working, plus the remote on the steering wheel has quit also. Do those radio's last about like the car radio's back in the 40's & 50's did ? Some of you might remember they didn't last very long at all. I wonder what I'm doing wrong.

RE: Just got AAA - Do I still need Good Sam Roadside Assistance?

My vehicle insurance has towing also, But it has a limit as to what it pays . It will only pay $150.00 to the nearest garage. And I don't think 250 bucks would tow a Motor Home very far for 150 bucks. That's why I have RSA.

RE: Shower head hanger

Why not just replace it with a new shower head assembly, sold at any Lowe's or Home Depot, and even WallMart? Get one that has the attached hose and shower head, or just get one with a new hose. If it comes with a hose, it will have the holder for it too. Simple to replace. You may never find an exact match unless you purchase the entire thing, as you've said, and you'll probably pay much more through your dealership than a big box store. Besides, it's a great opportunity to get a beefier shower head; maybe one with different sprayer functions by rotating the dial on the front. $12.96 for this one, similar to what is stock in most campers. Click here. I would have to drill more holes in the shower wall, I am not real fond of that.

Shower head hanger

I need the chrome part of this. The Chrome is plastic and and it's broke and will not allow the shower head to hang up. I tried to make the picture smaller, but it still came out large. Sorry about that. I tried the Winnebago dealer, But I have to buy the complete shower assembly. Have tried many store that sell plumbing parts, but no luck. Thanks for your ideas. http://i.imgur.com/cB32eMtl.jpg

RE: Metal Building Cost?

Here in my part of Texas I think the concrete will be the biggest cost. About 20 years ago I put up a 24x40 not counting the slab for $2000.00 of course I did the work all my self including the welding. And there is no front on it, it's just the 2 sides and 1 end. I have the sides about 18 inches from the ground so it get good air circulation.

RE: Do the people that build them ever use them?

Have often wondered about that my self. I bet the guy that designed the one I have has never been camping in his life.

RV Camp Grounds

I just returned form a 4000 mile trip. I think the RV Parks a getting bad. Not near as nice as they use to be. I stopped at the Sportsman's camp ground in Lamar, Colo. (Good Sam Park) I have stayed there a number of times. This time a little girl of about 8 years of age was in there by her self, I asked if I could get a pull-thru with full hook ups. Her reply was yes it would be $37.00. I tried to show her my Good Sam card, she was not interested. I asked her if that 37 dollars was with my discount. She said yes, Then I asked her what was the cost without a Good Sam discount. She said $37.00. I handed her two $20.00 bills and she asked me how much I needed back. I told her 3 dollars and she gave me back the 3 bucks. I then asked what space I would be in, she said any one I wanted. As I drove around I found all the full hook-ups were taken. So I took one with just Water & Electric . I went down to the office and it was closed. As I say the Good Sam doesn't mean any thing in some RV parks. I stayed at about 8 more on the trip and out of 9 RV parks there were only 2 that I would recommend and stay at them again if had the chance.

RE: Age restrictions

Our coach is a 2006, which makes it 10 years old. Just got back from a trip and had no problem at about 9 different RV parks. There we quite a few that looked to be much older.

RE: "Don't Scare The Tourists"

Cattle are more deadly to humans than gators, sharks, bears, bison, and snakes; I guess it's safer near the water in Fla than rural Midwest. Yea, they say that" red meat" is very bad for you

RE: Chrome lug nuts

all is well that ends well. Looked for a 42mm or 43 mm was unable to find one. Ended up at TSC found a 1 9/16" deep socket 3/4 drive Works like a champ. Thanks a bunch for all the help.

RE: Chrome lug nuts

Thanks a bunch for the reply's. My tires are 22.5 I took my wrench with me and the guy used his inside calipers to check it, he said it would be a 43 mm. But no one seems to have a socket that big. He thought a 1 5/8 would work but it was just a hair too big. I have a deep socket that is an 1 1/4" just too small. Harbor Freight had nothing close in Metric.

RE: Chrome lug nuts

They're probably 33mm. This looks more substantial, although if you need that much power to remove one, it could do with a dose of WD40 You bet, I put some WD40 on it, will give it a try in the morning. I have loosen a lot of things with good old WD 40

RE: Chrome lug nuts

egh33,The lug wrench for the chrome lug nuts on my Winnebago says V22501-TOL there is no size number can a call to Winnebago decipher that into a size? You are so correct that is the same number that's on that piece of junk they gave as a wrench. By golly I will give them a call. What's so sad is I went into see the dealer where I bought the coach and they knew nothing of what size wrench it took as they don't do any work on the chassis.

RE: Oil filled front hubs

If you have oil just below the rubber plug you are full. I have two lines on mine that show minimum and full. Thanks a bunch for the info, but like I say there are no lines on mine. I bought the coach brand new, there never has been any lines on the sight glass.
