RE: Roof Vent.....not normal depth?

Thanks everyone. Good ideas. I'll let you all know what I decide to do. The inside trim piece has turned yellow .... Krylon Fusion spray paint is made for painting plastic. Remove it clean dirt/grime off of it let it dry clean it with an ammonia-based cleaner and a stiff (non-metal) bristle brush rinse it off let it dry spray paint it let it dry reinstall The above are the steps I used to paint plastic window shutters with Krylon Fusion spray paint. Why an ammonia-based cleaner? I have no clue. I guess the ammonia does something to the plastic. I only know that it works.

RE: Hey Atwood! How about a useful Fantastic Vent website?

Did I also inform Atwood? Nope. See item #4 1) fantasticvent.com doesn't have an email address or contact form on their website 2) Atwood's contact page doesn't have a Fan-tastic Vent entry in its "Product Line" field. You'd have to select "N/A - Other". In my opinion, that's akin to the trash can. 3) The cell phone gets 450 anytime minutes per month. I'm not going to burn valuable airtime over this, and chasing down a LL would be about 67th on my TO-DO list. 4) I'm getting free WiFi here. I can use it any time I want - I have to ask to use the phone. 5) I suspect that there are a fair number of Atwood Mobile/Fantastic Vent employees who are also RVers and are members (or readers) of this forum who will see this thread. I put it out there that I believe that the Fan-Tastic Vent website is significantly lacking in content and am hoping that it will show up on the radar of someone at Atwood Mobile/Fantastic Vent. I have no ambition to pursue it beyond that.

RE: Hey Atwood! How about a useful Fantastic Vent website?

gotsmart, Are you just not happy with Fantastic Vent's web site, or just trying to get more info about the product? If you need testamonials, ....

RE: Demco Dolly Blew It Bigtime.!!

I take it that the 3rd option, replacing the minivan, is not an option. :S :B

RE: Hey Atwood! How about a useful Fantastic Vent website?

You made my point, twice. 1) you went to 3rd party sites for more information, and 2) the URLs in my original post do not even link to the company's own YouTube videos. I'm saying that Atwood Mobile/Fantastic Vent has dropped the ball in regards to product information/promotion. They need to do better.

Hey Atwood! How about a useful Fantastic Vent website?

Hello Atwood Mobile, please take note. I went to your website: http://www.atwoodmobile.com/fan-tastic-vent.asp to check out your Fantastic Vent offerings. I scrolled down to the bottom of the page where it says: View their website to get more information on their array of products which include: 12-volts fans, Endless Breeze and Ultra Breeze vent cover. I found 2 PDFs - a sales brochure and a old/new parts list. OK the old/new parts list is useful, but the sales brochure is so lacking of information that it is almost useless. It is too high-level. I don't buy RV products based upon feature symbols alone. I can read. I want details. I don't care if you're not interested in building websites. PDFs are OK, but put all of the product information in a PDF - models, features, specifications, options - per model. Please.

RE: Where is it?

Propane tank capacity: Here is a picture of my MH's propane tank. Behind the Stay-A-While adapter is a plate on the tank with the capacity information on it. You should have a similar plate on your on-board propane tank. Clean it off and read it. Remember that the tank can only be filled to 75% to 80% of the tank's capacity. http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8426/7796513374_e038868e0d_z.jpg

RE: Where is it?

For tank capacities look in the MH for page 12 of this PDF: http://www.coachmenrv.com/downloads/default.aspx?page=/ownersmanuals/14186115.pdf Coachmen calls it: MOTORIZED - UNIT WEIGHT INFORMATION SHEET It may be in a wardrobe, or drawer, or may be missing. One of your manuals may have an example of the page. Regardless, if it is missing you may be able to contact Forest River, provide them with the VIN and Coachmen data off of the stickers of the driver's door B-piller, and request the contents of Unit Weight Information Sheet for your MH. Coachmen RV P.O. Box 30 Middlebury, IN 46540 email: CRVinfo@forestriverinc.com Phone: (800) 353-7383 Keep in mind that the tanks could have been serviced/replaced since 1999 and the replacement tanks may not have the same capacity of the OE tanks. Some on these forums confirmed their tank capacities by actually taking 5 gallon buckets of water and filling their empty black and grey tanks with water to see how many gallons that they actually hold.

RE: Where is it?

rich85704 in this link you wrote: OK, the problem is solved, thanks to y'all and a helpful friend. First, I located the power center. It's down under the dinette table. 4 circuit breakers, 8? fuses. None of the breakers were tripped. The Onan 4K generator sits in a compartment which is barely big enough. If the front panel is removed, which involves a partial dissassembly of the panel. a fuse and a circuit breaker are visible. The breaker had tripped. Reset the breaker, fired up the generator and bingo! power. Now if I can just figure out how to deploy the awning *grin*\ Thanks! Rich The converter should be right there with the power center (above it, below it, next to it).

RE: where shall we stop on the way to WA?

I have friends who winter in AZ and summer in WA. On their trek north they always stop at Ambassador RV Resort in Caldwell, Idaho. They have only good things to say about the resort.

RE: Must cancel purchase of new toy hauler, No confidence

Lemme see if I have this straight: You're based in Miami, you bought the fiver in Virginia from a sales rep. based in Tampa who was acting on behalf of a dealer in Bartow and delivery was supposed to be yesterday (Sunday) in Bartow. But it wasn't. In Bartow, that is. Meanwhile, you're in-where?- Miami?- with an empty trade in RV and a check that you're taking back to the bank tomorrow. I sure hope you have all those "broken promises" down in writing, because unless they're in a contract it may be a lit-tle hard to just tell 'em you've changed your mind about the sale! Best of luck to you.... The OP went to the Tampa trade show. The CW salesperson is from Virginia and worked the Tampa trade show. The OP bought the 5er from the Virginia-based CW salesperson at the Tampa trade show. The 5er was to be delivered to the Barstow, FL dealership. Based on the OP's post it appears that the VA salesperson has to hand off to a FL salesperson in order to complete the sale. Based on the OP's post it also appears that the FL salesperson and/or Barstow, FL dealership is giving the OP the run-around.

RE: We need to buy a toad! Need to know towing capacity first

I really think I'm going to get a tow dolly with electric brakes ($1,300) in lue of a tow bar, baseplate, lights, and braking system. I will only tow my toad two or thtee times a year. And that will only be about 1200 miles round trip to Florida and back from Atlanta. Plus this will open up more options as far as Toads. Should be able to get any small front wheel drive SUV that weighs under 3800lbs. Right? I traded my Ford p/u for a smart car. Yes, I'd rather have the p/u but it was RWD only and would need a $2,000 drive shaft mod. My requirements in a toad were: light weight grocery getter errands/dr appts keeps the rain off of my head ease of towing With no kids/grandkids, an 1,800 lb 2-seater was perfect. At under 2,000 lbs I don't have to worry about it overloading the MH. A $15 to $20 battery disconnect switch is the only mod needed for flat towing (other that the tow bar, base plates, tail light kit, etc). The 2-seater also has a bonus. It keeps cheapskate RVers from bumming rides. Believe me. They are out there. I believe your toad search needs a bit of refinement - regardless of flat or dolly towing. Start off by first determining what you need the toad to do for you: 2-seater vs 4-seater 2-door vs 4-door room for kids/grandkids sedan wagon 4WD driving on beaches (some vehicles are not good for this) yadda, yadda, yadda Once you have the specs that you need in a toad, then search for a toad that does not exceed the weight/towing limits of your MH - preferably staying well under it as much as possible. There are many vehicles that can be towed by your MH, but only a short list of those that may fit your needs.

RE: kitchen faucet replacement

My faucet replacement: http://www.flickr.com/photos/gotsmart/sets/72157631214349876/ I recommend adding shut-offs if there aern't any at present. As you can see, my shut-offs go from PEX to threaded. http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7134/7852363884_8d1b1c4dba_n.jpg

RE: HELP - Need advice

Pay a mobile RV service (that you trust) to go over the MH - just like a home owners inspection. They will give you a list of the problem areas, and with that list you can decide how you want to negotiate the price - or walk away.

RE: new tires

Time for new tires any suggestions class c :) It would be nice to know the current tire size that your C has. Mine has Goodyear tires: Goodyear G949 RSA LT225/75R16 DO NOT MOUNT ON 16.5 INCH RIM MAX LOAD SINGLE 1215 kg (2680 lbs) AT 550 kPa (80 PSI) COLD MAX LOAD DUAL 1120 kg (2470 lbs) AT 550 kPa (80 PSI) COLD LOAD RANGE E (I figure that if I'm going to spend 5 minutes bent over at the waist and reading upside down *groan*, I'm posting all of it)

RE: New Website & Shipping Opitions for Canada!

http://www.campingworld.ca/ If the website defaults to French, there is a toolbar across the top of the page. Look for the label: "Sprache". Click on it and select: Englisch. As also noted above, I did not misspell Englisch.
