RE: Camping World - Longmont, CO

Your experience mirrors several of mine. My motorhome will NEVER see ANY CW service? department again.

RE: Shower drain question

Why not replace the p-trap with the waterless type trap? These are commonly used to provide more/less space under showers and sinks. http://www.hepvo.com/

If it's plastic, you have an Attwood water heater and it's a 1/2 NPT. You should always carry a couple of spares.

RE: ? about 50 amp campground problem, need master electrician

Past experience means very little. Wiring can fail at any time, especially as it ages. You need to read the voltage under load, not just at the outlet when nothing is plugged in. You are in all likelihood experiencing either a spike or drop. My bet is on a drop.

RE: Winegard 3005 stuck

My Travler has been so reliable that I haven't looked at the manual for years. However, I think that the manual lowering procedure is in the book that came with the dish.

RE: Salt Lake City KOA

Pony Express is a very nice park. The KOA may be nice, but it's still a KOA (Keep On Adding $).

RE: RV Park between Pismo Beach & Los Angeles, CA

I also agree with tpi. I live in Pasadena, and go to Pismo regularly. It is a 3 hour drive - longer to/from Torrance. For me, the half way point would be Santa Barbara. But there are only two RV parks nearby - one is awful, the other is very expensive (near $100 a night and definitely not worth it). The drive to/from Pismo to Santa Barbara would not be bad. The drive to Torrance? awful! I would stay Pismo Coast Village in Pismo, and Golden Shores in Long Beach, if you want RV parks. If you could go with a camp ground, there are more options, esp up at Pismo. LA traffic being what it is, Pismo Coast Village and Golden Shores would be my choices. I've stayed in both several times. Santa Barbara is VERY RV/Big rig unfriendly.

RE: Lights on '03 Alegro Bus Instrument Cluster

I'm not sure what TMH did that year, but I had an 03 Winnebago/FL that had a separate dimmer switch for the instruments. The dimmer on the headlamp switch controlled the drivers map light.

RE: Anyone take adv of Brake Buddy old for new discount?

OP back. My new Brake Buddy Vantage arrived, they sent it as soon as I provided the tracking # for my bb classic that I sent back to them. The cost for the new unit was $650, just as they quoted. I am glad to get the 3 yr warranty with the new unit. It has some new features, compared to my old bb. Overall, I am very pleased with the entire process; cost, quick shipping, and new/better technology. I was a bit worried, you know "if it sounds too good to be true....." - but everything was handled as quoted - no unpleasant surprises. The cable from the break away switch to the BB may be different. They sent me the entire assembly, no charge.

RE: Campgrounds in the Long Beach, CA area

There are no "comfortable drives" from outside of LA to Long Beach. It's going to be at least 1 1/2 hours to LB from any direction. I would suggest that you park your rig at Golden Shore RV Park in Long Beach and enjoy the stay.

RE: Anyone take adv of Brake Buddy old for new discount?

Good deal. I like the proportional braking on the new unit as well as the ability to control from the MH.

RE: Going to need new winnebago generator start switch

A great source for switches, including Carling, is DigiKey. If they don't have it, you probably don't need it. http://www.digikey.com/

RE: hard wired my converter in but not sure of polarity

Is it a flat zip cord? Usually it will have some ribbing on the outside that I believe is the neutral. Compare to the plug wire that was cut off. X2

RE: What's the purpose of this black tank fitting?

Since the hose fitting on the valve is female, I'm pretty sure that it was used to back flush the tanks.

RE: SF-Golden Gate Bridge north

As you are coming from Salinas, I am going to assume that you have already been to the Golden Gate Bridge. If so, I would take 880 N in San Jose to 580 and use the Richmond San Rafael Bridge to cross the bay. 580 intersects 101 North shortly after crossing the bay. While some may think so, in my opinion there really is nothing particularly enjoyable about crossing the Golden Gate with an RV. So unless you are dead set on crossing the Golden Gate, I would recommend crossing using the Richmond San Rafael bridge. Enjoy your vacation, Jim If you choose the Richmond Bridge, you will be going in the toll direction. It's going to cost you over $20 for 4 axles. The GG is free going northbound.

RE: SF-Golden Gate Bridge north

It's the same route that the Golden Gate busses use. I've done it many times in everything from a van with trailer to my current motorhome pulling a Jeep. Don't follow CA101 (Van Ness), use 19th Ave. and all will be fine. BTW, In case you don't know, Northbound is the free direction on the GG Bridge.

RE: Emergency Start switch didn't work

Most "aux start switches" don't actually switch battery banks, they tie the banks together. If your chassis batteries are really low, or bad, the switch may have to be held for some time because the bad batteries draw most of the initial load.

RE: HD DVR dedicated inverter

That darn receiver will go through an entire boot up of 10 minutes or more for even the slightest power outage. That's why you need an inverter/charger that will switch from normal power to battery without interrupting power to the DVR, or one that is only powered by the batteries. DVR's will as you say, "reboot in a heartbeat".

RE: Confused on Directv

I have the same dish itself just not the SWM, splitter and power injector. Not sure which SWM to get. I see different types. Steve If you want to use your existing dish (I'm assuming that it is a SL3 or SL5), you can either replace the LNB with a SWM3/5, or use a SWM8 multiswitch with your existing LNB. The power inserters for each option are different, but the splitters are the same. Unless you get locals or foreign language channels off of the 110 or 119 sats, you only need the SWM3 lnb.

RE: Hiway 9 South of Lake Placid NY - Clearance Issue?

Sometimes, the clearance "issue" can be the clearance on the far right side of an oval shaped tunnel or bridge and you will be ok if you keep to the left. The local signs are probably a better guide than a map or gps.
