RE: T Mobile Coverage in the West

You have to use VERIZON or at least a company that is on VERIZON TOWERS... Roy Ken T Mobile is GSM, Verizon is CDMA ??????

RE: Tell us your RV Unfriendly Communities

And this is exactly why I choose to live where there are no HOA's, I keep mine in my driveway. My property is MINE, and my neighbors is HIS. An HOA is not the OP's problem. It's the city. Unless you live out in the country, it can happen to you as well.

RE: Recording cable TV programs

My recent experience with cable in campgrounds indicates that more and more are upgrading to digital. Because you normally use a cable box to view these channels, many are lead to believe that they are "encrypted". I have found that not to be true. The channels are actually there, and viewable, but they don't appear on the guide channel. For example, if you normally tune channel 7 to see digital channel 7 on the cable box, you may be able to see that programming on channel 502.4 or something like that using your generic ATSC tuner.

RE: Recording cable TV programs

Is this what you are looking for? I have two of the earlier versions and they are great for recording OTA and cable. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JQOQCD0/ref=pd_lpo_sbs_dp_ss_1?pf_rd_p=1944687642&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe-1&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B003DPKOKK&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=09V1VPCTSWPEX5RMSS1Y

RE: Why I will never use Camping World for service ever again.

Welcome to the ever growing family of RV owners that will never allow CW to touch their coaches again.

RE: Buying DEF in diesel lanes at Pilot/Flying J

I'm new to DEF too but I do know there is a shelf life to the stuff so "stocking up" on DEF may not be a good idea. I know I'll be stopping by the truck stop to get my DEF, I'm sure it'll be "fresh" and more convenient to use. Not sure at what rate I'm going to be using DEF until the end of the month when we get the RV hooked up and get on the road headed for Phoenix. I was given a gallon jug of DEF when we picked up the new truck, I'll use that up and refill that jug as needed. Like mentioned here earlier I'll have a jug in the tool box with fresh DEF just in case. BTW the code date on the jug given to me states "use by SEPT 2016". Dan You can plan on using 1 gallon of DEF for every 50 gallons of fuel that you burn.

RE: Buying DEF in diesel lanes at Pilot/Flying J

The DEF pump at the truck stop has a special nozzle on the end (magnetic interlock) and it will not open unless it is properly inserted into the neck of the DEF tank. It's suppose to keep someone from pumping DEF into the fuel tank. Our DEF storage tank in heated and the nozzle is inside a compartment to keep it warm. The "magnetic" nozzles are only at some stations in some parts of the country. Loves seems to be big on them, while I've never seen one at any of the Pilot/FlyingJ's that I have used. The company linked below sells the magnets at a reasonable price. I carry one "just in case" because my tank is on the passenger side and I need to fill a portable plastic container. http://www.fivestardef.com/

RE: Switch to dry dog food?

Like most, our 6 year old English Bulldog has " digestive issues". We feed him mainly Royal Canin bulldog kibble with a very small portion of various flavors added. Their formula allows us to share the same room with him after dinner and the crunching is good for his teeth.

RE: Freightliner service

If FL didn't do the service, that's fine. If the required services were not done, that's really bad and has voided your warranty. Your diesel coach is not a car and has considerably different requirements.

RE: Water heater element

I bought a new Rv and I noticed there was a on off switch on thee outside of the unit for electric operation. It was hidden behind some tape. Well of course i had it plugged in with the water tank empty. When I noticed what was going on I disconnected the element and checked it with an ohms meter and it shows a solid short. Does this mean the element might be ok? I can only plug in to 20amp service where it is parked so I can't check it through the electrical system. Thanks in advance for your help. Doug If it's a Suburban it's probably toast. Attwood, there is a possibility that it still works. 20A service should be plenty of power to test the heater. Just don't have any other high amp items on at the same time.

RE: 2008 Jeep Wrangler

My 08 JK has the locking steering wheel. It was one of the first in production for that year. The "clock spring" is now defective and it basically has something to do with the air bag deployment and is located inside the steering column.I am going to dismantle the column to replace the defective part and the "lock" will not be going back in. For JK owners, when the clock spring goes bad the air bag light will go on. Each time you make a left or right turn it will chime. There was a recall on certain 08's but not mine. A man placed a u-tube video showing how to replace it and I am going to do it myself. You might want to double check that clockspring. I believe that my 2007 was extended to lifetime. I previously have disabled the wheel lock on several Jeeps. After taking a look at my 2007, I decided that it wasn't worth the effort.

RE: 2008 Jeep Wrangler

The IOD fuse that you are looking for has a T-handle so it's easy to pull. Make sure that you get it all the way up. (You don't need to remove the fuse) If you care to, you can also pull the M1 fuse which will disable the brake lights if your brake system depresses the pedal on the Jeep.

RE: Freightliner Oasis Repair Centers

I went to one of the Peach State centers for some work because they were an Allison dealer; I don't recall what it was supposed to be but there was nothing at all "Oasis" about this shop. They did, however, find me a spot to park for our three-day stay in Camp Parking Lot and offered to bring a power drop, which I didn't need. The gist of it is, though, is it's a truck shop. The did replace the Allison ECU, found that there was an additional problem beyond their "dealer" abilities and referred me to the Allison distributor's shop. When you go for Allison service I'd suggest you go to Gaffney or to W.W. Williams (the Allison distributor) in southeast Atlanta. Since we were heading westward we went to Williams in Montgomery; although not an RV-oriented shop the guys went all-out to make our two-week stay in Camp Parking Lot comfortable. I doubt that Gaffney is the place for serious Allison service/repairs. They do some things, but for the really serious stuff like reprogramming etc. they will probably have to refer you to an Allison shop. The same thing applies to serious Cummins items. Their expertise is your FL chassis. They "service" the other items.

RE: Freightliner Oasis Repair Centers

Just remember, many of the items are replace by time and/or mileage. Filters, especially the air filters (engine and air system) are time critical as well.

RE: Freightliner Oasis Repair Centers

Oasis centers are still operated by the independent owners. Some are very good, some not so much. If I lived within a days drive of Gaffney, there is no question that's where I would go. Their prices are fair and if you are a FCOC member, you get a discount. If you don't know the service history of your coach, getting it right (at least for the first service) is very important. After that you can choose other options like Speedco or Oasis.

RE: Dish Trav'ler installing

If your "pre wire for Travler" is the same as my coach, the coax and data cable should already be there. You won't need the data cable that came with your dish. Can the data cable be removed from the dish or is it hard wired to the dish? It can be removed. You remove a cover plate to access the plug. Then you remove the weather proof grommet that passes through the case. The new cable should already have the grommet on the cable because it won't pass over the connector.

RE: condensation on bottom of fuel tanks

The same thing is happening to your engine block and oil pan. I could never keep the rust off the oil pan on my previous coach with a Cat engine.

RE: Tow vehicle smells after towing

If you are getting the "odor" after starting the toad, it's normal. There are different opinions on what it is (road film, rubber, etc) but it should go away in a couple of miles.

RE: Onan 7500 problems

One question. When facing the front of the generator (where the starter button and circuit breaker is located) on which side is the starter and solenoid located on?:h If the 7500 is like the 8000 you should be able to get your hand on the starter from the door where the fuel pump and filter are located. You might be able to jiggle the connectors from there but that's probably about it.
