RE: Winnebago roof blows off

I don't know why some of you are being so cynical about using Eternabond to seal the roof. In the Winnebago case, it's being used to seal the joint, not "hold the roof down" as someone suggested. That's exactly what that tape is for. Tiffin uses it over the joints between the roof and the front/rear caps. Once again, it's used to provide additional protection to the joint. Any properly prepared joint that is covered by Eternabond will never need any more attention for the life of your coach. They do? I am on my second Allegro bus and there is no EB sealing anything other than my roof radius cracks till Tiffin repaired my roof under warenty this fall How old is your bus? My 2012 Phaeton has the tape front and back as described.

RE: AM21N TV Tuner works great

Simply put, the AM21 was "invented" for the purpose of integrating local channels in cities that DTV didn't have satellite "spot beamed locals". As others have said, it can also be used to "expand your local services".

RE: US 69 Thru North Texas - Oklahoma - Kansas

I guess that it all depends on what you are driving. I driven US69 in OK from Big Cabin to US75 several times in my MH (228 WB) and have no issues.

RE: AM21N TV Tuner works great

Thank you all for the backup, I was just trying to pass along some information that might be beneficial to some of our RV family. Why someone has to make an issue and a "crime" out of this is beyond me. Thanks again guys! Before you go, can you confirm that the AM21 will only work if your sat is "locked on".

RE: AM21N TV Tuner works great

When I set up my current coach, I considered the AM21 for off air, but decided that it had an issue that would not work for us. I was told by several sources that the AM21 would only work for off air signals if the satellite was locked on. If it won't work if sat signals are not available, that's a major issue for me, so I went with a Magnavox (actually two) DVRs from Walmart for off air signals when I am out of my local spot beam. Think of them as VCRs that record to a DVD or internal hard drive. They have digital QAM tuners which will also tune analog and digital cable signals.

RE: Please Take Heed

We have been seeing reports like this, and seeing replies from CW just like this one for several years. My last, and it will be my last CW service visit, was over 4 years ago. What I am seeing is that NOTHING HAS CHANGED. To quote the tech who finally did a proper repair (after several botched ones), "don't confuse the size of our sign with the quality of our work".

RE: Winnebago roof blows off

Hmmmmmmmmmm. I learned something today. I re-caulked my roof soon after we bought it as the old caulk was deteriorating, and I was afraid water leaks could result. I used a high quality, outdoor Silicon product. I'll have to check it a little closer this spring knowing this possible problem. Actually, if you look closely at the drawings that have been posted earlier, you should note that it would be almost impossible for water to work its way around the channel. The caulk is what holds the roof in the channel and has little to do with keeping water out of your coach.

RE: Winnebago roof blows off

I own a 2004 Winnebago and that is a first for me! After it is fixed I would like to know what caused it! I've had very little problems with Winnebago RV's my current coach is my 3rd one and I've been RVing since 1976. Welcome to RV.Net and Take Care! My previous coach was a 2003 Journey DL. I was made aware of the problem around 2005/06. I never had any issues with my roof, but I did know that I needed to inspect the channel caulking on a regular basis.

RE: amount of heat given off by a #1141 bulb ?

An 1141 bulb is rated 18watts at 12.8 volts. Volts X Amps = Watts So you would need roughly 6 bulbs to equal one 100W bulb. Those 6 bulbs would draw about 10Amps.

RE: Winnebago roof blows off

so much for considering winnebaggo in the future. I thought Thor had issues My previous coach was a Winnebago DP and in my opinion, the roof was much better made than my current Tiffin. Although I have had no issues with my TMH product, so far, TMH has had big time issues in the past that may or may not be resolved (time only will tell). The roof on my Tiffin doesn't look or feel as good as the one on my Winnie. The Winnebago design works well, as long as it is checked on a regular basis, and caulked as required. I think that Eternabond is the ultimate solution. That being said, based on overall quality and design, I would (and did) choose A Tiffin over the more recent recent Winnebago offerings.

RE: NOT impressed with only the quote stage...

GS has never come close for me and the office that they quote from is about 10 miles from my house. By "not close" I mean "not within 50%" of Geico (my current insurer) or Progressive (my previous insurer). I know that you always need to shop around, but every time that I do, GS is way out of line and they have never sent me my tool kit or whatever other promotion I was supposed to get for giving them a chance.

RE: Direct TV satellite box question-old or new?

If your old HD DVR is an HR24 or lower, it will work just fine at the track. It will be SD only but it will work. You will need to run setup and change to 18" round and multiswitch. FWIW, I have owned an HR21, HR22, HR23, HR24, and HR44(Genie). None of them ever took over 7 minutes to boot.

RE: Useless Service Sacrifices Safety for GS Profits. AMENDED

I had a similar issue several years ago with one of my cars. My first call was to 911. They called for the tow and AAA paid, even though the tow was not a AAA contractor. The police should trump GS also, but who knows.

RE: Camping World - Longmont, CO

Your experience mirrors several of mine. My motorhome will NEVER see ANY CW service? department again.

RE: Shower drain question

Why not replace the p-trap with the waterless type trap? These are commonly used to provide more/less space under showers and sinks. http://www.hepvo.com/

RE: WATER HEATER PLUG

If it's plastic, you have an Attwood water heater and it's a 1/2 NPT. You should always carry a couple of spares.

RE: ? about 50 amp campground problem, need master electrician

Past experience means very little. Wiring can fail at any time, especially as it ages. You need to read the voltage under load, not just at the outlet when nothing is plugged in. You are in all likelihood experiencing either a spike or drop. My bet is on a drop.

RE: Winegard 3005 stuck

My Travler has been so reliable that I haven't looked at the manual for years. However, I think that the manual lowering procedure is in the book that came with the dish.

RE: Salt Lake City KOA

Pony Express is a very nice park. The KOA may be nice, but it's still a KOA (Keep On Adding $).
