RE: Does anyone know if you can limit Genie lines to less than 5

It appears that they now have SWM LNB's with built in multiswitch that support more than 8 tuners. One of those would be a better option than a legacy LNB and a SWM16. https://www.weaknees.com/cart/product.php?productid=61097

RE: 50 amp outlet

Hi, I wound stay away from GFCI, unless it is required by code. X2 GFCI outlets are known to have issues when connecting to RVs, even when they (the RV) are properly wired.

RE: Question about insulation in front cap

I added denim insulation to my front cap. Much easier on the hands and nose than fiberglass.

RE: splendide washer replacement hoses

I need to replace my 2002 splendide combo washer supply hoses. the original hoses are 8' long and from what I read have a 20mm female 90 degree fitting to the machine and regular fitting to the water supply. Has anyone replaced their hoses and do they have to be 8' long. washing machine all use the same hoses buy a pair at lowes home depot etc and no they sure as heck don't need to be 8 ft long unless for some reason someone put the supply taps a long ways away you can buy steel braided 5 ft ones on amazon for 15$ each My 2003 Splendide used a hose that had metric threads on the washer end. US hoses would not fit that machine.

RE: Warning light comes on while driving - Level jacks down!

First off, you need to make sure that you let the jacks complete their retract cycle. Don't turn them off just because the lights have gone out. If you turn them off, trapped fluid can expand causing the alarm to sound.

RE: RVshare mention bank denied loan - any recourse

Something doesn't sound quite right. What's motivating them to make up false stories? Most dealers will do and say almost anything to get a deal approved, not provide inaccurate information to kill the deal. If this was just a misunderstanding or miscommunication, insist that they contact BOA and tell them that this information was given in error and to restore the deal to the original approval status. If they won't, there's more to this story... I have been a long time (over 40 years) customer of BOA and continue to be one. Their online banking and widespread availability of branches is great. That being said, they are one of the last places that I would go for a loan. They have way too many "strange" rules when it comes to consumer loans.

RE: Has Anyone ever been turned away for Length Restriction?

I own a lot at one of the so called "luxury resorts". Exceptions to the Class A only rule are never waived. Age and length restrictions may be waived on a case by case basis. The appearance of your coach will be the deciding factor, even if it does meet age and length requirements.

RE: how to get to long beach

Long Beach is probably the only place that I wouldn't go in the LAX area to see the beach. Orange County, or LA county north of Palos Verdes would be my choices.

RE: I-70 versus I-8- from KC to Cheyenne

I29, NB2, I80 would be my choice.

RE: Water pump replacement

I have the Revolution in my new TT. It's quiet and works "OK" but the water flow isn't completley smooth and the pressure isn't great. I'm used to my old Sensor 5.7 though, which will go on this trailer when my warranty is up. (I have the only good 5.7 they ever made) Just be aware that when that 5.7 fails, it may get VERY hot. Hot enough to cause a fire. I know this because it happened to me. The only "good" 5.7's were the very first ones. They lost their original electronics supplier and it was "downhill" from there.

RE: Water pump replacement

All of the variable speed pumps seem to have issues because of the electronics involved. The "Revolution" pumps are either off or on and vary the output with an internal bypass. IMO, that's a much more reliable system.

RE: Help with water pump

You may have an accumulator that has lost its air charge. It will be a round or oval tank with an air fitting, probably located near the pump.

RE: what year did EGRS , DPF's, DEF etc..show up on DP's

The "serious" stuff started with the 2007 EPA and was changed again in 2010. Most everyone used DEF to meet the 2010 standards. Actually, the 2010 engines get better mileage because they can build them looser. My 2012 Phaeton gets better mileage than my 2003 DP got, even though it weighs about 7000 pounds more. Could you please tell us people that are not up on the current Diesels, what "build them looser" means? I got my information directly from Cummins, but it appears that there are several on this forum that know much more than the people who certified the engine. I'm certain that they can tell you "everything". What I can tell you is that my 2003 Cat got about 8mpg and my current coach frequently exceeds 9mpg. Those numbers are not conjecture, they are facts.

RE: Great Tech. Service

As they say, "even a blind pig can occasionally find a truffle". Consider yourself one of the lucky ones. My personal experience with CW service has been anything but good.

RE: camping world web site?

Searched for items appear on my computer without any issues. Perhaps some setting, perhaps pop up blocker, is causing your issue.

Winegard Customer service (not)

Has anyone been able to contact Winegard customer service recently? I have always received a rapid response from them in the past, but they have not responded to several emails and voice messages in the last 8 days. I am having issues with my third replacement Rayzar and I'm beginning to get the idea that they simply don't care any more.

RE: waco to branson help

I frequently drive from STL to DAL area. I have been using the US69 route for over 40 years without any issues. Definitely the fastest route.

RE: Towing 2008 Wrangler JK

IMO, the "easiest way" is to have a competent mechanic remove/disable the steering lock. Once that is done, there will be no need to leave the key in the ignition ever again! Just something t6o think about... I tried this approach. Good luck in finding one that will do it. On the earlier models, removing the pin is a diy job. On the newer ones, it's a lot more complicated. I know, I tried.
