RE: Class A with a Salvage title

If nothing else check with your insurance company I had a friend who had a hard time retitling a vehicle he bought with a salvage title. He did finally got another title but it was like a rebuild title and he still could not get insurance. Sounded like a good deal on the front end but it was a nightmare to deal with.

RE: Coach is getting older

I had to make that decision several years ago, buy another or keep. I decided to go a few more years and see how it would shake out and I'm still going with the same coach. Have had several small issues such as alternator, steps and brakes but no show stoppers and I was able to do the repairs myself. So far NO problems within the coach except batteries and I have no regrets. Oh yeah mice but that's another story.

RE: What's everyone using to remove mal ware?

If you have used Cnet to download anything you need to check for PUP's.

RE: Can you jump the coach to chassi batteries to charge

I have used a jumper wire across the aux solenoid for the past 6 years when in storage and plugged in. Keeps both coach and chassis battery charged by the converter I also have a pink strap on the steering wheel to remind me to disconnect before starting.

RE: So I weighed my coach today....

One test you can do at a gas stop, before pumping gas 1st thing is to feel all the tires if they are hot you do not have enough pressure.

RE: PLEASE Help, its dead.

I would take the battery to an auto parts store and have it load tested could be internal to the battery. Voltage is not that low however, a restive (corroded) connection will limit the current (amps)to the starter and you would hear the click from the starter solenoid but not enough amps to turn the engine over.

RE: Dumb question

Sounds like a steer safe. Keeps you going straight in case of a blow out. Steer safe

RE: PLEASE Help, its dead.

"Click won't crank" is a sign of dead/weak batteries or corroded connections at the battery.

RE: Grey Tank Valve Open or Close

Well I just may be lucky never having a problem. When staying more than a week we leave the gray open but always flush both tanks using a Flush King. Amazing what comes out after the first gravity drain then using the Flush King. I sometimes have to back flush 3 or 4 times before I am satisfied the tanks are clean.

RE: '94 Winnebago Brave - Won't start

I think you have a corroded connection. . You may also have a bad fuseable link on the pos side. Time to get out the meter and check for resistance from battery to ground on neg side and battery pos to starter. Should be around 1 ohm or less.

RE: Turn signal problem

This problem is known to happen when the flasher module fails on GM vehicles. I found this when researching a weird problem with my turn signals. New module is over $100 salvage yard $20. May not be your problem but worth checking out if your RV uses the same module.

RE: What to do in high crosswinds

You can spend a lot of money on fix's that help but do not FIX the problem, the best fix is know your limits and get off the road when you feel unsafe. IMO a day or even two days late to wherever you are going is better than trying to figure out how to get home AFTER an accident.

RE: Help Me to Understand Dry Start ?

Farm equipment lasts for many many years and they do not have a pre lube set all winter and fire it up in the spring.

RE: Alarm Company Video vs. Do It Yourself

You might check on insurance discounts that would just about pay for the system before purchasing. I installed a Swan 8 camera system from Costco(only have 4 cameras installed)it works great but no discount from the insurance company.

RE: Gen. wont hold 2 a/c's

Should be no problem unless there is a problem with the generator. As others have stated there are other loads that could be on at the same time like a microwave or hot water heater.
