RE: Propane Leak: Hose Replacement

Three different connection systems are common and can be mixed on the same RV. NPT, flare, and reverse flair may be used in any combination. If you don't know for sure what you have, you need to find out before trying to connect anything.

RE: Weird electrical problem

There is nothing "weird" about your issue. Fix the wiring and you will fix your "weird" problem. In fact, you should not even connect your rig to ANY electrical source until it's repaired.

RE: Motorhome magazine big error

Of course it's wrong, but it makes for a nice picture that demonstrates the way that he labeled his wires. The other choice would have some loose ends hanging around.

RE: Sealing smooth-bor water fill hose to tank?

Silicone should work. Just don't do the final tightening until the silicone cures.

RE: Looking at used DP's?

You deal with them the same as any other salesman. Verify, verify, and then verify for yourself.

RE: Bakersfield Transient

I've tried other ways but 99/46 is my choice. You might want to check on the 58 part over Tehacahapi(sp). I believe that is where they had the recent mud slides and it may be closed for some time.

RE: Terminating propane line

If you decide to cap it, make absolutely sure that you use the right fitting. I've seen flared, reverse flared, and NPT fittings all on a single line.

RE: Trouble with my water pump

Here's a little background on the 5.7 if anyone is interested. The original pump was a great unit that normally provided many years of service. Somewhere along the line, the supplier for the pressure sensor went out of business leaving SF high and dry (pardon the pun). SF had to redesign the pump, and for what ever reason couldn't seem to get it right. Most were lucky to get a year or two out of the new design and SF replaced many under their warranty. Finally, SF came out with the 4048 I personally had 4 of the new design 5.7's replaced, the last of which was replaced by a 4048 which is still going strong after 3 years.

RE: Lite hitch weight TT

My SIL just bough a Jayco X213. I believe that the tongue weight is around 425#. I was impressed with Jayco quality and design features, especially for a loaded trailer that lists around 26K.

RE: Trouble with my water pump

Not sure about the number, but if it's the old 5.7 variable speed pump, it's time for a new one. The pump probably has water in the electronics and is overheating, causing a thermal shutoff. My last 5.7 got so hot that it actually melted some wires that were touching it. My 4048 replacement has proven to be an excellent choice. It runs at one speed and varies the flow by bypassing the water that is not used. That, IMHO, makes for a much more reliable pump.

RE: Would this be a terrible idea? {aluminum jack stands)

I have a set of those stands left over from my trailer days. I don't care what they "rate" them at, they are not for lifting a wheel off the ground. In fact, I would be surprised if you could do it. They are "stabilizing stands" not "jacks". As far as 10 pounds making a difference, I can't imagine what you are thinking. That's less than the weight of 2 gallons of gas.

RE: Blue Beacon Truck Wash - Procedural Question

You pull up to the entrance and someone will direct you (and probably try to sell services that you may or may not want). You will probably pay while they are washing the coach, but are always welcome to be in the bay during the process.

RE: while on cruise control trans disengages

I don't know how your cruise control works, but if it is vacuum operated and the vacuum gets very low (like pulling a grade) the cruise control can disengage.

RE: Port of Newport Or (Annex?)

The main park is very nice as you can tell from their picture. The annex is just a place to park with hookups (I think). I was there last May (2014) and I don't recall anyone being parked in the annex.

RE: Gunnison Colorado to Durango Colorado

FWIW, the Million Dollar Highway scares some people, but for others it's a great experience. That highway is driven daily by various tractor trailer operators including UPS. I can think of several roads that are much worse. Just take your time and enjoy the "Million Dollar" views.

RE: Directv Genie Question

We are replacing the satellite dish in our new to us DSDP with a Winegard SWM Directv dish. The TVs won't get changed out until next spring when we will switch them for HD LED units. I am thinking about changing to a HD/DVR at that time with a Genie system and a mini wireless Genie for the bedroom tv. Any advice or suggestions as to how well this will work in a motorhome? Does the wireless Genie need wifi to work? Thanks! The Genie and client will work just fine in a MH, but you need to be aware that neither has a coax (75 ohm) output. That might be a factor depending on how your coach was wired.

RE: Grill modification (removing regulator) for quick connect?

Before you change anything, you need to determine if the quick connect on your RV is connected to the high or low pressure side of the regulator. Failure to determine this properly can result in some really bad things happening.

RE: Air hose quick connect for gas?

You want to install a fitting that would allow any air hose or tool to be connected to a propane tank? What could possibly go wrong?

RE: Scratching my head on this

Does that 12 volt overhead light happen to be fluorescent? I had one that had a bad filter (capacitor) that caused problems with my thermostat and tank monitors. If the overhead lights were on, all tanks would read full and the fan on the AC wouldn't turn off.

RE: 50 amp Cord

I recently purchased a 50A extension on Amazon. I believe it's a Camco and it seems to be more flexible than the TMH suppled one. It may not help on your coach, but on some it is much easier to store the cord in a "figure eight" than a straight "coil".
