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.

RE: Towing 2008 Wrangler JK

Do any of you even bother to read what the OP posted. He states that his vehicle still has the locking steering, so he can't tow without the switch being on. "Being on" means that the battery will be drained no matter what braking system he has.

RE: Towing 2008 Wrangler JK

There is a fuse (60a I believe) with a t-handle in the TIPM. The fuse is labled IOD (ignition off draw). Pull it and you will be good to go. Utility outlet will still be powered and you will not lose any radio presets. Only the clock will have to be reset.

RE: 2003 Itasca DP does not always start

At one time I owned a 2003 Winnebago DP. As I recall, some owners had an issue with the ignition switch. Also, there are 2 or 3 relays mounted on the chassis near the starter that have had issues as well.

RE: 550 between Ouray, Silverton, and Durango

FWIW, UPS and other carriers send their semis over 550 every day, weather permitting.

RE: SpeedCo Council Bluffs IA

The water separator used on many FL chassis is not as common as other filters and there are some variations that fit the WS but don't have the correct electrical connections. They tell me that the FL installed water separator is also used on many Volvo trucks. That being said, I always carry spare WS filters as well as a spare plastic bowl.

RE: Light switch

Electrically it does the same thing. Not really an issue with 12 volts. By convention all switches and fuses are on the positive side so I recommend staying with that. It is not uncommon to find a switch that completes a circuit on the ground side in automotive applications. Many door switches as well as fan speed switches work that way.

That's where my outside TV plugs in.
