RE: best through st louis

There is only one way around, the 270/255 loop.

RE: best through st louis

St. Peters has a very nice new (and safe)city RV park. I personally wouldn't want to stay any closer to the "war zone".

RE: DirecTv Local Spotbeam Maps

Most of the spot beams are anything but round and they vary by satellite. That means that the coverage for SD and HD will be different. For example, I can receive the STL HD locals as far south as Red Bay, AL and north at least to Davenport, IA which is a distance of at least 750 miles. However, I can only go west about 200 miles and still get a signal.

RE: DirecTv Local Spotbeam Maps

They are available on the dbstalk website. The maps interface with Google Earth.

RE: Upgrade water pump wiring?

A 3 volt drop across the pump terminals is too much. The easiest fix is to install a 30 amp automotive type relay. I was able to reduce the voltage drop on my coach to around .5 volts using this remedy. No it isn't. Not for the purpose which the pump is intended; that is , intermittant low volume use. What exactly do you think you accomplished with your modification ?? Now you could probably use the pump to water the grass on your lot for a couple of hours at a time; so what ???? If you want to argue about this issue, argue with Aquajet or Shurflo. I simply followed their installation instructions.

RE: Salinas to Santa Rosa via 101

Don't even think about 101 through SF. Use 280 and 19th Ave. My preferred route would be 101 to 85 and then 280. That will avoid some congestion in San Jose and is also a much prettier route. Rt. 85 has a "no trucks" restriction, but that doesn't apply to RV's.

RE: new AC compressor noisy, normal when new?

There have been many complaints about the Mach 8's. Outside noise, inside noise, fan blade failure, motor mount failure, etc. I know that some have placed wedges under the base to help with the inside noise. IMHO, EVERY ONE of the Mach 8's should be recalled. Simply not reliable. I know of several owners that are on their third unit in less than three years.

RE: SOLVED!!! Loud Screech from the 454!!!

That sure sounds like a vacuum leak to me. While hoses are the easiest to diagnose, there is also a good possibility that it is an intake gasket or carb/TB base gasket. I would try spraying WD40 on every gasket surface to see if you can isolate the sound (pitch should change if you spray the leak) and check all of the intake manifold bolts.

RE: Tell me about Ouray, Co

Ouray is nice, but we much prefer Durango.

RE: Charleston, SC where to stay, what to do?

James Island is definitely my first choice. Oak Plantation is nice but it's not nearly as good as JI.

RE: WOOHOO!!! I did it!

Congrats on your achievement, but 50A is simple because it's the same as a newer range (1996 I think, NEC). It's the 30A that gets many people, including some electricians, in trouble. Just a "heads up" for the less informed.

RE: Cummins Onan Generator oil

After countless hours of searching, I could not find the the oil specs recommended for the rv generator. I finally broke down and went to my local Cummins center, and bought the factory Onamax 15w-40. I say broke down, but honestly at $5.50/quart, i cant think of a reason to use anything else. But for anyone else looking for the specs, here they are: API Certifications - CJ-4, CI-4, CI-4 PLUS, CH-4, CG-4, OF-4, OF/SL As I said, 15w-40 is what they said to use, which is part #326-5336 for a quart. A quick search of my standard go-to Mobil 1, showed it did not meet all the same specs. FYI- hope this helps. FWIW, the specs that you list are diesel oil specs. Mobil 1 is for gas engines.

RE: Northern California

Big Sur shouldn't be a problem, but don't even think about Hwy 1 in Marin County.

RE: Have you ever have this happen to you??

The photo looks like the back row at Dockwielers(sp). Probably an Aussie in a rental unit that's having a problem driving on the right.

RE: Center of gravity?

Is it going to cause any problems if the camper center of gravity is 4 to 6 inches in front of the rear axle? If that location provides adequate tongue weight, you should be fine.

RE: Campgrounds in Missouri

Look into KC East KOA. Very nice spot to land. X2. Very large dog runs too.

RE: Campgrounds in Missouri

The city of St. Peters has a fairly new city owned campground that looks nice. Babler is also nice, but very popular during the summer.

RE: Anti-Sway bar for Freightliner XC-chassis

There are several things that you can do to improve handling, but a sway bar is not one of them. 1. Verify ride height is correct. 2. Verify correct tire pressure. 3. Verify that the bellcrank is not binding or has excessive wear. 4. Adjust the steering box for proper tightness. 5. Add restrictors in the lines to the air bags to reduce the Walmart roll. 6. Install a steering stabilizer like the SafeTPlus. I'm guessing that your 35 ft. coach has a 208 inch wheelbase and there is only so much that you can do, but all of the above should help.

RE: First time owner-Black water tank clogged....help!

A flushing wand has been standard equpt. on my RV's for over 30 years. I made mine but improved it by adding the head of a toilet plunger to prevent "backsplash". I insert the wand until it hits the tank bottom. Then slide the rubber down to the bowl before turning on the water.
