RE: Whirlpool Refrig Problems

Are you running a PSW inverter? If not then that is your next step. X2

RE: Cummins 360HP to 400HP

360 HP could also be a 6.7 ISB. All Phaetons had the ISC with MH3000 transmission. In 2010 they were 360HP with 1050ft/lbs. In 2013 (the last year that the ISC was available) they were 380HP and 1050ft/lbs. The torque didn't change and probably wouldn't even if you could up to 400HP. That being said, I am quite happy with the performance of my 2012 Phaeton. Most of my miles are logged in the mountain and pacific time zones.

RE: Cummins 360HP to 400HP

My 2012 Phaeton has a 380HP ISC with 1050ft/lbs of torque. The newer Phaetons have a 380HP ISL with 1150ft/lbs since the ISC has been discontinued. Anyway, my point is that 380HP is a standard ISC configuration.

RE: PEX piping question for plumbers

PEX pipe will not crack, fittings will. That says it all! FWIW, there is one method of connecting PEX that doesn't even use clamps. They have a tool that stretches it enough to slide over a fitting and uses the "PEX memory" to shrink it back down for a water tight connection.

RE: toad hook-up

That $129 tow bar might do the job, but how are you going to connect it to the toad? Where are you going to store it when not in use? How easy is it going to be to connect it by yourself on a rainy morning? I have rarely been satisfied when I bought the cheapest version of anything unless it was for emergency or one time use.

RE: Roof Question.. should I freak out?

The magnets in those speakers will stay cold for awhile. If the moisture is just on the insulation that touches the speakers, I wouldn't be concerned. If it's a larger area, it needs to be checked out.

RE: Circus Circus KOA in Las Vegas

They had great dog runs, but I understand that the park is no longer there. I believe that it has been replaced by a park a few miles south of the main strip.

RE: Winnebago Journey 2002 Can't Find J Port - HELP HELP

I believe that's the same foot rest that they hid the surround sound amp under. I guess that explains why we never found mine.

RE: Winnebago Journey 2002 Can't Find J Port - HELP HELP

I once owned a 2003 Journey DL and never found the port under the dash either. They must have done a good job of hiding it because FL couldn't find it either.

RE: DIRECTV receiver with neighbors satellite dish?

Dependingon his and the neighbors receivers. If it is the latest SWM technology, then nope! Aint gonna happen. If both receivers are SWM capable (almost all are), it's still easy. Connect to a splitter instead of the dish.

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.
