RE: Water pump

My water in the rv keeps running when I turn off the water. I have to turn off the switch to stop the pump. No water is leaking out from anywhere so I do not have a leak? Any ideas what might be the problem??? My 03 Winnebago would do that if the city fill valve was left in the wrong position. It would continuously circulate water to/from the tank.

RE: Mystery Loop Back Cable - What is it?

Just a guess, but it could feed another outlet. That way, they avoid installing a splitter that may not be compatable with the signal that you put on that cable. ie: off air, cable, or sat.

RE: Winegard satellite antenna mounting

Install butyl tape under the dish, fasten the screws into the roof (don't overtighten), and seal with Dicor. It's not going anywhere. The OP is NOT worried about installing it. He is concerned about the slope effecting the antenna. If that's true, it shouldn't be a problem. These things are often installed off the center line of the roof. My Travler has no problem locking on when my coach is not level in a parking lot.

RE: Garmin, really

I have never had a problem contacting Garmin by phone and have always talked with a native English speaker based in the US.

RE: Loose rivet in Kwikee steps(UPDATE)

I have been able to reduce the "rattle" in my steps by backing up the rivet with my 10# sledge hammer and striking with my heavy ball peen hammer. That is a temporary solution that will probably give way to the bolt/lock nut fix.

RE: Is there a difference in Diesel Fuel?

Diesel from any high volume station should be fine. Truck pumps with actual trucks using them is an even better sign.

RE: Perdido Key, destin gulf shores

We have camped at Topsail in Destin and Gulf State Park in Gulf Shores. Both are beautiful! Topsail has a shuttle to the beach, but you can walk to the beach at both campgrounds. Both have a pool, but the pool at Gulf State Park is much larger. Both towns (Destin and Gulf Shores) have the usual tourist things to do...putt putt golf, go-carts. Gulf State Park has a zip line course that is a lot of fun, as well as an extensive system of bike paths. Of the two, we prefer Gulf State Park. The zip line is gone but it is still a very good park The zip line has been moved to the Wharf in Orange Beach. Just re-opened this weekend.

RE: Roadside Service

If you are an FMCA member, they have a plan that covers your coach and toad for under $100 a year. Just renewed coachnet for $74 a year. Don't have to belong to anything covers all my family's cars. Sounds too good for the right coverage. Best price I've found for Plantium, was through Sharon Ball at PPL Motorhomes of Houston and is now over $100, but still, well worth it. Thing is, you're insuring yourself and spouse for whatever you're driving and whether or not, it belongs to you or someone else. Idk I've had it for years. Last year or so when I was reading on the forum how much they were charging I went on line to my account and renewed for six years for $446. Back when I signed up they wanted all our names and sent us all cards. My older boy lives in VT. and he used it up there. I'm gonna call when I get some time and make shure what I have. The last time I wanted to renew Coachnet wanted way too much money. I called and they told me that I was "grandfathered" and they could sell me a renewal for around $100 but it would only cover the coach.

RE: 2015 Freightliner low antifreeze sensor

Sensor is located in the radiator tank, not the recovery bottle. If you fill the bottle and it goes down anfter cool down, the radiator needs topped off and refill the bottle. If low since new, all the air wasn't purged when built. Not true. FL locates the sensor in the recovery tank, surge tank, or whatever else you want to call it. It is not located in the radiator.

RE: 2015 Freightliner low antifreeze sensor

If your chassis is a rear radiator, the sensor is in the forward facing part of the tank. It's a simple screw in part but it can be a real pain to access.

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.
