RE: Going to be a warm one today!

Where is Furnace Creek other than close to Hell? I'm guessing it's in Death Valley. And, maybe I'm wrong again.

RE: Wash/Wax

Bar Keepers Friend is good for removing oxidation. It's used during the ZEP/Red Max Pro application process. It did a nice job on our 96 Southwind. Some like the process, some don't. Decide for yourself.

RE: Newbie getting a head start.

Welcome to the forum. The diesel vs. gasoline debate is an ongoing process. Did you consider renting a Class C for a trip? That way you will get an idea of how they work and how the floor plan works for you. The price difference between gas and diesel isn't the only thing to consider when buying a RV. Take your time and enjoy the search. It's a learning process. Maybe you will decide another type RV is best suited for you.

RE: Generator Voltage with Electronics

Thanks for the quick response. I didn't think it would harm anything but, I really didn't know. Thanks again.

Generator Voltage with Electronics

I have a 1996 Southwind with a Onan 5500 generator. When I'm on shore power my Kill-A-Watt shows 121.1 to 121.3 volts in the Southwind. On generator power it shows 119.1 to 121.3 volts. Will the small fluctuation on generator power cause any problems with electronics, computers etc.? The generator is running great and is not surging. Thanks for any help.

RE: Neat Little Gadget

It opened for me. It's a like Swiss Army Grater/Masher/Opener/Separator/Squeezer and Measuring Cup. Looks useful for the RV.

RE: Ford Superduty Megacab?

I think they should build an extended crew cab. That would one up the mega cab. :)

RE: how do you know when to trade

When you no longer like the RV, floor plan, colors, etc., then it's time to sell/trade. IF you like your unit, I would keep it. It's like cars. Some people feel it is necessary to buy a new car every few years. I don't. As long as I like what I have, I keep it. I wouldn't worry about depreciation. As soon as you buy a new unit, you lose money. JMO

RE: 12 volt system problems

Definitely check for corrosion. Our Southwind wouldn't start yesterday and I had no 12 volt power, the chassis battery is charged and in good condition. I cleaned a little corrosion off the positive terminal of one of the 6 volt house batteries. The engine started and everything is working normally. A little corrosion can really mess with you.

RE: window insulation

I've used reflective bubble foil insulation on our 96 Southwind for years with no problems. I use it on the windshield and the double pane windows. You can get it at Lowe's, etc. or online.

RE: Perfect sunny side up eggs

Looks pretty good, but for my money, there is no more perfect breakfast than trout, eggs, bacon & toast. Feel free to disagree. Eliminate the bacon and I'll agree. :)

RE: 10 year rule

But it seems the 10 year rule is pretty well established every where. Where did you get this information, from a RV salesman? :) It a ten year old rule was strictly enforced, many campgrounds would probably go out of business. I've never had a problem with our 96 Southwind.

RE: Need recommendations: Drinking/RV/Boating Hose

Buy another white hose, or the color of your choice, and also buy a pressure regulator. Put the regulator on the CG spigot to protect your hose and RV water system.

RE: Diesel --- front engine -vs- rear engine

Dare I say its a lot like comparing a Harley to a Goldwing. The Harley is the FRED and the Goldwing is the PUSHER :@

RE: Newby with lot of ?s

That's a big, vague request. What are your interests? Cars? Art museums? History? Aviation? Etc., etc.. If you narrow it down a bit, we can give you better advice. There is a lot to see and do in the lower 48. I like to use Roadside America when traveling between destinations. What states do you want to visit first? That's a start. :)
