RE: Gen-turi for hydro hot

I was wondering about that, as well. We were told NOT to use a Genturi on the genny exhaust pipe as it would not support the weight. The Aqua-Hot exhaust looks pretty much the same. Like you, I try to be considerate of the neighbors -unless they're having a big, smokey campfire in which case it's "game on". ;) I also look for sites with no one close on the driver's side. Ours AH seemed too loud and the smell seemed so overly strong that I had an RV tech check it this week. He (and his supervisor) both stated that's just the way these units are. Actually, if you use the side mount as intended, there will be very little weight on the pipe. If you still think it's too much, you need to add an additional hanger/clamp.

RE: Gen-turi for hydro hot

I've seen several people use them and I wish everyone would. That's especially true when they are parked next to me.

RE: Printer stopped working

If win8 works like previous versions you can try the following. Launch administrative tools and turn off the spooler. Go to win/sys32/spooler and clear the cache (files) Launch adm tools again and turn spooler on.

RE: Water heater and pump

Suburban heater, the heating element is toast. Attwood element is probably toast too, but it had a slightly better chance of survival. Water pump might have survived, depending on brand and model.

RE: what year is this coach

In most if not all states, the chassis vin will be on the title and the year will be the one assigned by the body (coach) builder. That is the way that the RVIA says to do it.

RE: Atwood water heater Thermal cutoff

The thermal breakers are usually sold in pairs at just about any RV parts supply. They come with the ends installed. When you install the new one, make sure that it is positioned away from, not above, the flue. On most heaters, that means that it will be bent 90 degrees to the left as you look at the heater. BTW, your heater will work just fine without it until you can get a new one. Just connect the wire to the terminal that the breaker was attached to.

RE: Fantastic Fan vent cover

On one of my previous RV's I tried one of the "conventional" covers and felt that it restricted the flow. I returned it and got the Maxxair covers. I am still using the Maxxair covers that I purchased, two coaches later.

RE: DirecTv Trav'ler dish setup between stick house and MH

If your dish at home is the same as the one on your RV, the Genie will not know that it has been moved and will power up just fine. If not the same, you will have to run setup again. No big deal, but MAKE ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN that you select the proper dish. There are a lot of combinations to choose from and several are quite similar.

RE: 5th Wheel Jacks Won't Retract

I'm not much of a 5th wheel guy, but my campground neighbor had the same problem last summer. I found a blown fuse that was probably caused by reversing the motor before it had stopped. The hardest part was finding the fuse which was conveniently hidden under the battery box.

RE: Garmin RV 760LMT arrival time to destination way off

Two possibilities come to mind right now. There are others. Are you sure that you have the eta at destination selected in the display? Is it possible that your route has some type of backtrack that you can't see on the display?

RE: How many miles can you expect to put on a CAT 3126?

My good friend who works for Ryder Leasing tells me that the 3126 was a MUCH BETTER engine than the C7. I ran my 3126 for 9 years and over 90K miles with only one issue. I had to replace the gasket between the oil filter adapter and the block. Cat has a TSB on the problem. The fix is basically a thicker gasket with longer bolts. Don't forget to lube the fan bearing.

RE: I 5 or CH 99

My choice is I5 but don't use CA58 to connect unless you are already west of town. Use CA99N to CA46W to connect to I5.

RE: Water Water Everywhere

Setup RV at campground and went out for a while and when we returned water was running out from under the RV. The valve was in the coach use position not in the tank fill position and the fresh water tank was full. My question is do these plastic valves fail or leak ? Also when the water is turned off at the campground tap and we try to use the in house water pump it runs all the time. I had spare pump and changed out the pump. Same the thing happens the pump runs all the time. So I am thinking its the valve (city fill/tank fill). Are the two connected ? So the only way to get water in the coach is to turn on the pump that runs nonstop. I don't want to burn up the pump. My previous coach was a 2003 Winnebago. The fill valve label never made sense to me, but when I was filling the tank the water pump would run continuously if the switch was on. That's not the case on my current coach.

RE: Need impeller for Sanicon

I ordered 2 from SaniCon. They were cheaper there than from everyone but Appliance Zone (about $2 difference) and their CS was much better. You can not contact AZ except by email which probably won't get a response unless you threaten to cancel the order. All of the above is based on MY personal experience.

RE: Dealing with Freeloaders

When we got our first RV back in 1977, the DW and I made a pledge to each other that we would NEVER loan it to ANYONE. Making that decision "up front" has served us well for the better part of 40 years.

Over 3 million have already left. There are plenty of places that will be happy to have you.

RE: Installing Progressive SurgeGuard

This has been a topic for discussion many times but in my opinion, it should be installed before the transfer switch. That way the transfer switch (not a cheap item) will be protected. The generator, especially a diesel one, already has a lot of protections built in, so chances of the generator damaging your system are almost nil.

RE: Anser DirecTV with DVR-24 and Genie

I just talked to Winegard and they said that I have to run a cable to the mini-Genie too (using the SWM)!!! I don't get it - I thought the mini was RF (?). Right now the mini has a coax into the TV jack that is in the bedroom. Do I need to run a different coax or is this the one they are talking about? The HR34 requires a cable from the DVR to the client. The HR44 has wireless capability, but the installers that I've talked to say that their wireless installs have been "iffy". I don't have any first hand experience with the HR44.

RE: Anser DirecTV with DVR-24 and Genie

The Winegard website has some very good wiring diagrams for SWM and legacy systems.

RE: Trying to sell house to go full time HELP!!

If the garage is done tastefully" it shouldn't be a problem at all. There are plenty of buyers out there with RVs, boats, commercial licensed trucks, etc that would love to have it.
